Fine wrinkles reduction for sensitive skin

Hello, I am 31 years old and I have sensitive, dehydrated skin but I have been succesful in keeping it moisturised and calm with the selected products and some other that are not available on the list. My morning routine is usually some toner, vitamin c serum, The Ordinary hyaluron + B5, a sunscreen moisturiser. Evening routine would be cleansing, toner, The Ordinary retinol in squalane 0.5 every other day, night creme and sometimes sleeping mask Wine therapy by holika holika. I just bought and tried the cosryx all in one snail creme and it seems pretty nice so far so I was planning to use it for both night and day as a moisturiser. Since I have some fine wrinkles around my eyes and on my forehead I would like to enhance my routine with a great anti-age eye cream, maybe change or add some anti age products to enhance the effect. Products with extra moisturising and plumping effect suit me the most. I am mosty sensitive to perfume. Price range per product would be max 50$. Thanks!

Hey! Dry skin can be a pain, especially as we approach the winter... I would like to help but some details are missing (male/female and which area of the world you reside in) to make an optimal judgment. But here are a few suggestions to start with...

Morning:

  1. The ordinary B5 & toner are probably redundant.

  2. Vitamin C in the morning could be a source of dryness, try to take it out and see if your skin gets better hydration.

  3. Consider taking the money you can save on toner, Vit. C and Ordinary B5 and invest it in the Ordinary peptide buffet. Incorporating a good peptide serum can take your hydration to the next step, plus can provide benefits with the fine lines you have mentioned without the irritation of Vit C.

Evening:

  1. Apply the retinol first, on wet skin (for optimal absorption)

  2. If you still feel dehydrated, consider topping the evening routine with some good heavy-duty cica cream (La Roche-Posay, Avene, Vichy- all are fantastic choices that contain thermal water micronutrients that your day skin will appreciate.

Hi, many thanks for your answer. I am a female and live in EU, Croatia. I will definitely try your suggestions, never realized that vitamin c could be drying out my skin. I use a local brand Skintegra - Superba and it makes my skin feel refreshed which I love. Do you think I should use an eye cream as well?

You're welcome!

Vit C. is fantastic active, but people with dry and/or sensitive skin must use caution because it will undoubtedly irritate and dry the skin. If you can't live without vitamin C, I would suggest you buy the CeraVe body balm (the thickest body cream they have) and apply the vitamin C after a good layer of this moisturizer. The Skintegra vitamin C seems like a good product. Personally, since you mention that you do suffer from dryness, I would try to give vitamin C a break. Try the Ordinary lactic acid 10% instead for a couple of weeks, I believe it can help address your current condition better.

I will stop using it for some time to see what my skin looks like without it. I will also try the suggested products, some of these might be the switch I am looking for. Thanks again for the great advice!
