AM Anti-Aging Skincare Routine W/Retin-A – Easy Morning Skin Care + Managing Retin-A Irritation!

This is my morning skincare routine for 2017. I do Retin-A at night, but an important part of managing Retin-A irritation is your AM skincare. Over time, my daily care skin routine will plump up your skin and decrease fine Ines and wrinkles. It will also give your skin a more youthful glow. It’s also a very easy skincare routine. My skin care takes about five minutes in the morning and the evening!

Through taking and using their advice, I have seen positive changes in my skin through using Retin-A, light chemical peels, dermarolling and other anti-aging procedures; and my makeup through lightening up, using better products and getting rid of the glitter (I am still working on this one!).

    All this is new to me. I have used moisturizer since I was about 16 and watched the sun because I am a blue eyed blonde. And when you are young all make up looks good on you. This aging is new.

    Hi Beth
    Great video. Love that you don't use the super high end brands for everything. I love the CeraVe hydrating cleanser, it feels like I am washing my face with lotion. I tried a sample of that scrub and I loved it, will have to get the full size

    I'm so scared of shaving my face! Doesn't the hair grow back course? Like men when they shave? I don't know but I'm hearing about this so much lately lol. I'm going to grab that Derma cleanser next time I'm at Whole Foods. I've used their C serum before and I liked it. Exfoliation! Yes so true and makes a world of difference. I've been using Drunk Elephant C serum. Expensive but I've seen dramatic results. Thanks Beth! Xo:)

    So true about exfoliating!!!!. I started doing the retin A a couple of years ago (Angie Hot n Flashy) routine however she never really talked too much about how darn important it was to exfoliate….or I maybe wasnt listening which may have been the case sometimes Im known to hear only what I want to hear…lol. But exfoliate may be my middle name now. Great video and on to your PM now~xoxo

    I LOVE the buffet. Full of yummy and it makes my skin feel great. I LOVE the niacinimide for the look and texture of my skin. I ordered vit c and rosemary oil. Been out of stock. I love caffeine for under my eyes. Helps with puffiness but you have to put on , let sit, put on let sit then you'll we the difference. I just got in 5% lactic acid for mask twice a week since I'm on retin a. Just gets those dead skin cells off

Going through an ugly peel right now. ๐Ÿ˜ณ. I'm also going to try the derma-e microdermabrasion when I'm done with the one I'm using. I really like that brand. Off to watch your PM video!! ๐Ÿ’ž๐Ÿ’ž

    Hi Beth…I am a Newbie…have subscribed and have been catching up on you earlier videos. I feel as though I know you already. Your manner and presentation are very helpful, calming, and informative. The results speak for themselves. I have just a few comments to make…(I haven't watched your Retin A videos yet, but that is on my list of things to do.) One is Retin A…I had a miserable time using it – started 3 years ago. No matter what I did or how I did it, nothing worked. I peeled, itched, flaked, so I gave up started again and again, and then I read this article ( and a few others, so I gave 0.025 a try…and I love it. It seems to be working…no I don't look like I did when I was in my 20s/30s, but I most certainly have seen improvement and absolutely no irritation, redness, or peeling. As for the shaving…cute story…you made the comment about the ladies who just might not be aware of the "fuzz" or more on their faces. Some years ago, my daughter and I were visiting my mom in the hospital…an elderly lady was wheeled on the elevator with us. On her chin were some majorly long facial hairs…and I told my daughter when we exited the elevator…"When I can't do it or don't know they (the hairs) are there, you better take care of it for me!" Have a Happy Mother's Day. I am off to watch your PM routine. ๐Ÿ™‚

I love it. It does help with the dry flakes. Got that tip from another wonderful lady here on you tube. I used the timeless products until I bought the ordinary products about nine months ago. I still use the timeless vit c. I have tried others but I keep going back to it. Thanks for the info..much love and blessings…xoxo

I think I will start using them by July 1st, I will let you know if they work m. They are also reasonably priced. Well, Take Care and GOD BLESS YOU.xoxo my Kindred Sister๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒป๐Ÿ˜‡โค

    Hi Beth! Sounds like you found a morning skin care routine for you. I've recently changed my routine, because I've been trying a few different products from Deciem, from their NIOD, and The Ordinary lines for about eight weeks now. Firstly, I often use make up wipes from Costco, Garnier Miscellar Water, or oil free make up remover from Mary Kay (which I've used for 36 years now!). My current morning routine may look extensive, but it is fairly quick to do as it is a cleanser, an essence, several serums, Vit C, a Lactic Acid cream, two moisturizers, and a sunscreen! I have several different cleansers, and currently, my two favourites are Peter Thomas Roth's Strawberry Scrub/ Fruit Enzyme Polisher, and Boscia's Detoxifying Black Cleanser. I use it with Olay's Pro X Cleansing Tool with the brush attachment. I use an essence , and I am currently using May Coop's Raw Sauce, and Missha's Time Revolution, The First Treatment Essence, in rotation, every two weeks, I'm currently out of Biotherm's Life Plankton Essence, which I also rotate with the other two. I apply NIOD's copper amino isolate serum 1.00%, and multi-molecular hyaluronic complex. I also use The Ordinary's Buffet serum which contains Matrixyl 3,000 peptide complex,Matrixyl Synthe'6 peptide complex, etc. plus 11 skin-friendly amino acids and multiple hyaluronic acid complexes, as well as Mizon's Snail Repair Intensive Ampoule. I recently changed from my DIY Vit C serum 20% (containing Vit C, E, glycerin, distilled H2O) to The Ordinary's vitamin c suspension 23% + ha spheres 2%. I then apply Good Genes by Sunday Riley, before my moisturizer which is, Infinite Aloe Original (Fragrance Free) cream, followed by Infinite Aloe Gold Anti-Aging Formula. My sunscreen is La Roche-Posay Anthelios 60 Ultra-Light Sunscreen Fluid.I am quite pleased with the condition of my skin, which would now be considered normal, other than some wrinkles around my mouth. I had significant acne, and oily skin for most of my life, but thankfully it finally resolved in my early 40s after trying Proactiv (it was a miracle cure for me after so many unsuccessful treatments). I have heard a lot of women on You Tube mentioning that they shave their faces. I'll leave that to the nurses, or Tim to do for me, only if necessary, when I've 'lost my mind', and any developing beard is becoming unattractive! I pluck the odd darker hairs on my chin, but the lighter hair on my face is mostly invisible, and unobtrusive presently! 'It is what it is', as Tim always says! Happy Mother's Day Beth, Sherrey๐Ÿ’—๐ŸŒน๐Ÿ’—

    I keep my morning and evening skincare products separate as well. I store each in a separate train caddy. Keeps me organized. I've also used a regular razor to shave my face for years. Those Tinkle razors scare me. BTW there is lots of controversy on using vitamin C and niacinamide together. Some say they cancel each other out while others deny it. You do your research and decide for yourself. I use one in the morning and the other at night.
