Almond oil, olive oil....both absolutely great for skin.

mrschilicook - isn't Renova the same thing as tretinoin cream? Have you tried getting your prescription from Canada? I just checked online and it seems substantially less expensive than obtaining it from US drugstores.

I used tretinon for a short while, but it was really harsh on my skin. Do you use moisturizer with it?

My dermatologist recommended CeraVe to me and I love it. No greasiness at all and it moisturizes very well. I have dry skin that flares up with excema. It is fragrance free and hypo allergenic. you can find it at most drug stores. I bought mine at Wal Mart where they keep it behind the pharmacists counter so you have to ask.

I am always searching for new skin care and lately, I have been searching for non-expensive skin care that is organic but contains everything I need. After using Philosophy and others I have found Skin Perfection Radiance Moisture containing, A,C,E and Niacin. I can't even pronounce the things that are in "Hope in a Jar", but I can with this stuff, plus they sent me samples of 2 other products.

Have you tried Avon's Anew product line? I love it. Full refund, too, if not happy with product.

Normal skin and not quite dry yet, but need good products that fight crepe neck from coming and wrinkles from forming.

Wrinkles form due to dryness of the skin (loss of moisture) and loss of collagen, as we age. If you keep you skin moisturized, you can keep your wrinkles at bay, for a good while. Once the wrinkles arrive, there is nothing you can do, short of surgery/laser, to get rid of them. You may be able to purchase products that will plump the skin so that they are less observable, but they will never go away. Try AmLactin 12%. Keeps your skin soft. As for the crepe neck...I think that is inevitable. Not much we can do about the loose, saggy skin, when we start aging. The best advice my mom gave me as a young woman, was to start taking care of my skin once I reached 25. I did and it has paid off bigtime. She bought me my first bottle of moisturizer and I never looked back.

Put me down as another Oil of Olay (Sensitive) lady.

Both my mother and grandmother had fabulous skin. And that was all they used so I've been following their lead since I was 16. I've had dermatologists ask what I use.

My mother's other trick was to put on hand lotion every time she washed her hands. They were like silk. She also had a drink of water ever time she was at the kitchen sink. So I'm doing that too and so far so good in the nice skin department!

p.s. I'm Irish and Polish so never was able to tan. Just burned so I just stayed out of the sun. How thankful am I for that now? Maybe the Scarlett O'Hara look was never in style, but I think it paid off for me!

Have to add, since I live where it gets tremendously hot, that I use sun screen and I use it often even though I may just be going from the house to the car or store or wherever. But, come to think of it, I've been using it for years.

That could be 40 or 60. Of course not all of us are that way but where most younger (under 35) women seem to really care I think a lot of older women have different priorities. I however am not one of those...I still REALLY care which may be unfortunate as it sometimes seems to be a losing battle.
Too many of us are sporting the GrandmaGaveUp look. Unfortunate.

Then there's the SantaClausOldGuyGaveUp look. Especially when the nose hair grows into the mustache.

I bought this for my mom. She wanted it for a her b-day. She loves it. I tried it too, it worked on my scars on the face for bad pimples. It's really good stuff. It is 50 dollars but worth it.
