@TootsieWootsie - Vitamin A creme (also known as retinal) and Vitamin C serum under your eyes at bedtime, Granulated Sugar to exfoliate a few times a week in the shower and Ponds Dry Skin Creme for moisturizer....if your going outside in the sun, a decent sunscreen. You don't need to spend a fortune to see skincare results.

I always use Vitamin E on my skin if I have a dry patch and lemon juice for any kind of blemish. That Vitamin E is the kind in gel caps that can be taken internally. I prick one with a pin and apply to skin by fingertip.

Thank for the suggestions, folks!
I used to have fantastic results with Vitamin E...then one day--all of a sudden--I broke out in a horrible rash from it, and haven't been able to use it since. Pity.

"OLDER WOMEN"-??-you mean like 80's and 90's right? Surely you dont mean we fabulous babes in our 50's-60's.
I think Dr P's line is waaaay to expen$ive. Not sure its necessary to spend a house payment on skin care.
I will look into some of your suggestions as I need a new routine and I have been far tooo lazy
and my favorite brand has always been called "on sale".

I can tell you why you're breaking out in a rash from using Vit E on your skin tootsie wootsie - because most store bought Vitamin E is synthetic and very dangerous, when put on your skin and when ingested. You have to make sure you use Vit E from a reputable health food store, and not use the crap off the drugstore shelf - it's very toxic, and no one tells us this! To the lady who's using it on your face, I do hope you've checked your source on what kind it is, and how it's produced, as it can be pretty stressful to the liver...kinda crappy huh?

anyhow..regarding skincare for mature skin - have you tried Murad? I recently purchased some, and it works quite nicely. I know they have a number of products, and not too badly priced....I think Joan London is a celebrity they have pushing it...it's www.murad.com

Olay Regenerist got a great writeup by Consumer Reports. I use the line, and I've been very happy with it.

I use almond oil when my skin is feeling dry and itchy. But my daily moisturizer is Olay Complete with SPF.

Red face Renova

I'm 63 and have used the generic Renova product for about 3 years now.
I get compliments on my skin quite often...mostly for lack of fine lines and crows feet which is what the product says it's for. It is prescription and costs about $80 but lasts 5-6 months. It's also worth it if your really worried about the fine lines.

However, you do have to wear sunblock and hats in the sun if your using the product. You also can not supplement with any moisturizer containing vitamin C.

Also lots of water, keeping your weight healthy but not too thin, also helps.
Isn't it strange what we worry about at this age?
