Amber’s Anti-Aging Skin Care Regimen
Amber’s Anti-Aging Skin Care RegimenMost women, including myself, have aging skin. Today I am going to tell you about a simple yet effective plan to get your skin back on track! It may seem like a lot at first, but these 6 sometimes 7 products will get your skin looking amazing and only take a few minutes.
The morning routine.
I start the day by splashing my face with warm water while in the shower. Since I have washed my face the night before, I don’t usually tend to cleanse again in the morning. Once or twice a week I will use IMAGE Ageless Resurfacing Masque to exfoliate. I use my fingertips in a circle like pattern around my face and then allow it to sit while I wash my hair and go about the rest of my shower routine. Then I rinse it off.
Once I am out of the shower I apply a pea size drop of IMAGE Ageless Total Pure Hyaluronic Filler. This serum plumps and fills fine lines and wrinkles while restoring hydration back into the skin. I let my skin absorb the serum for a few minutes while I get dressed and grab my coffee. Lastly, I follow with IMAGE Prevention+ Daily Hydrating Moisturizer Spf 30+ and then I am ready to face the day.
The evening routine.
At night, before bed, always wash your face to get rid of makeup and any dirt or debris from the day. I use IMAGE’s The MAX Stem Cell facial cleanser it is great for all skin types and optimizes the skin’s pH. Next, I apply another round of IMAGE Ageless Total Pure Hyaluronic Filler, let that soak in for a few then follow with IMAGE Ormedic Bio-peptide Crème. The Bio-peptide Creme is great for restoring and balancing the skin because it is packed with nutrients and vitamins. However, if you are like me and ready to start preventing signs of aging I suggest using IMAGE’s Ageless Total Repair Crème. This crème will help diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while firming the skin giving you an age defying look!
The first night that I made the switch from the peptide creme to the repair creme my face began to get warm, tingle and felt very tight. I knew these signs were normal when using acids and retinols. I left it on and went to bed. When I woke up the next morning my skin felt more plump but was beginning to feel a little dry. I wasn’t sure if it was a mixture of the dry air in my apartment, that I was starting to get a cold or the creme. I decided I would continue my new regimen and moisturize more in the morning.
The next two nights I had the same tingly feeling and I woke up feeling dry. On the fourth day I felt very dry and noticed some peeling on my chin and forehead. That’s when I decided to make some changes to my regimen. I discontinued the repair crème and resumed the bio- peptide crème at night. Then swapped out the Ageless Resurfacing Masque with the IMAGE Vital C Enzyme Masque. The enzyme masque works to rehydrate the skin as well as dissolve away any dead skin.
Make changes based on the way your skin feels.
I gave it a few days to make sure I was getting enough moisture back in the skin, then did a diamonddermabrasion treatment to get rid of all the extra dry or dead skin. I continued with the bio-peptide crème for the next week or so until I felt like my skin wasn’t nearly as tight feeling. Then I went back to the Ageless Repair Crème at night, but this time I mixed the hyaluronic serum and creme in my hand before applying it to my face. I still felt a little bit of tingle but the sensation was nothing compared to before. I’ve been mixing the two together for the past week and haven’t seen any of the flaky or dry skin as before. I noticing that my skin feels more firm. I’m happy with it so far and will continue doing this for the next few months adjusting based on the way my skin feels.
