Hello,

I have mixed feelings regarding all the facial products and have used Clarins for years. I have just lately started experimenting as I look old at 53 and this is really depressing me.

I have bought some Vitamin E Oil and have used it for a couple of nights and have used it with the tanaka massage. Is it alright to use this on my face.

I am a bit scared of all the products available and I am really confused with Retinol and Vitamin C. I take skin supplements, Vitamin A, E, C, and a multivitamin plus MSM powder. I also drink plenty of water and walk every day. I never go out with a sunhat.

I mainly buy my products from England and my funds are limited.

I have just started Cynthia Rowlands facial exercises but not sure if I am being conned due to lighting and clever filming on the DVD.

Any advice would help.

Thank you

Lynn

Welcome Ginnylynn! Basically, the most beneficial nutrients for the skin are Vitamins A, C and E. Many of us here use prescription strength Retin-A (the gold standard for anti-aging) or you can use a Retinol over-the-counter product.

A Vitamin C serum is also necessary as well as the supplement - the Skinceuticals one is highly recommended - it also contains E and Ferulic Acid. But it is much cheaper to make your own and is very easy to do so. Just do a search for DIY recipes.

You can also mix a few drops of Vitamin E with your moisturiser in the palm of your hand and apply that. HTH.

I used Clarins faithfully for a couple of years and found it did nothing. Would recomend branching out from that brand.
I heard someone say that the most absorbable vit e oil was Morrocan argan oil. Not sure if this is true.

Hi Keliu and TTD

Thank you for your kind replies. I will certainly look into retinol and Vitamin C serum.

I do not think I will be able to get the prescription strenght Retinol A, and I am not sure what this product is supposed to do. I am also worried about what I put on my eyes, can you safely apply retinol and/or Vitamin C serum to the eyes.

Sorry meant to say that I never go out without a Sunhat, even in the winter I always wear a brimmed hat. oops.

I also went in to an early menopause and haven't menstruated since I was 40 years old, but I do also take bone density supplements, and as I can't take HRT, I suppose having an old face is a penalty for this.

Thank you.

You can purchase Retin-A on the internet.

Spend some time on the Forum doing some research - there's so much information here on Retin-A and Vitamin C. You might also want to look into Lactic Acid or TCA Peels. And of course, all the skincare gadgets. There's lots of things you can do at home to fight the aging process.
