My Skincare Routine To Stay Young
Since I was 16 years old I have been trying many different products to try and improve my skin. At first I wasn’t really focused on ‘anti-aging’ – it was more focused on just improving my skin condition because I suffered from acne when I was a teenager.
I have tested a lot of different cheap anti-aging products to more expensive products, and what I’ve found is that you do get what you pay for.
My favourite skincare right now has to be Skinceuticals. Their products transformed my skin when I first started to use them, and I can’t see myself ditching them anytime soon. By far the best skincare line that I’ve used.
Is Skinceuticals Worth The Money?
Skinceuticals are one company that you can have high-grade products which are supported by science. This is why I trust them and like their products so much. I’ve also never had any bad reaction to a skinceuticals product. None of them has ever broke me out in spots like other creams and serums had done in the past.
I’ve not tried every single product by then, but I can vouch for the effectiveness. Skinceuticals products are absolutely worth the money. It might seem a big expense at first, but since the products typically last me months, it’s really not a lot if you think about it.
Below I will list the products that I am currently using as part of my skincare routine. It’s pretty basic, but I do get questions about what I use, so here it is!
Anti-ageing skin Care | Morning Routine
Step 1: I wash my face using Clearasil 5 in 1 Face Wash
Step 2: I apply Skinceuticals CF Phloretin
Step 3: I apply Skinceuticals Eye Balm
I change between using Skinceuticals CE+Ferulic and Skinceuticals CF+Phloretin. In the Winter I will use the CE+Ferulic and in the Summer I opt for the CF+Phloretin.
Anti-ageing Skin Care | Night Routine
Step 1: I use Tea Tree wipes. These are quite gentle on my skin and are not dry my skin out like if I were to use my Clearasil face wash twice a day. It also moisturises the skin a little as well.
Step 2: I apply Skinceuticals Eye Balm + Skinceuticals A.G.E Complex
That is basically my simple skincare routine in 2017. I’m trying to keep it pretty simple at the moment and just sticking with the products I believe are most effective in keeping my skin in good condition.
Calorie Restriction Before And After
Throughout the years I have taken photos in a consistent way to show the effects of calorie restriction and good skin care in slowing down aging. I will keep this format, but int he future I’ll also update with higher quality images using a DSLR camera.
Calorie restriction in animals is able to slow down the appearance of aging. Below are few photos that I’ve taken over the years, mainly on webcam, showing me from 17 years old to 32 years old.
I have more photos of me before calorie restriction and after the diet which I’ll upload at a later date!
A look at 3 vitamin C Serums
People ask me about the skin serums I use, and when I tell them I use Skinceuticals (which are premium) the cost is sometimes a bit too much. However, there are cheaper options available that offer good results as well. In a recent post, I look at high end, mid range, and a low priced vitamin C serum from Seoul Ceuticals. Check out the review article here: Review of the three serums.
