Keep away wrinkles 🤨

Like every other woman I don't wanna age! But will😤 I'm really good about a morning routine I suck at night time routine keeping it consistent I get lazy and fall asleep without washing my face, too much. I need to improve that but I wonder if the products I'm using are good products to use?

I have wonderful news for you (I hope you'll like it at least): you can have a very lazy (minimal) skincare routine that is still very effective! But I'd recommend quite a few changes to your current products. Out of your AM routine, I'd only keep the StriVectin Super-C Retinol Brighten and Correct Vitamin C Serum and Clinique Moisture Surge Hydrator. (Actually I'd personally go for a fragrance-free retinol serum instead of StriVectin, but it's because my skin can be sensitized and I tried to avoid fragrance in my skincare). Then, I'd definitely add a daily broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 at least at the end of the morning routine (broad-spectrum sunscreens are the most effective anti-aging product, and if you'd want to use only one anti-aging product and get results, it would be a sunscreen). You do not need to wash your face in the morning:) In the PM, a cleanser is important though - to remove the sunscreen and daily pollution. You don't need to use anything else at night apart from the moisturizer (it can be the same one you use in the AM as long as it doesn't contain SPF). You could also shift your retinol product from AM to PM. Then your AM routine would be only moisturizer + sunscreen (or just sunscreen - many of them are very hydrating!). The PM would than be: cleanser, retinol serum and a moisturizer.

Thank you so much for responding. I switch between beautystat skin refiner I think it's called it's their vitamin C serum and the strivectin super c. I really like using a vitamin C serum, I like strivectin super c because it has retinol but I don't like that they won't devulge the percentage. Makes me wonder why they wont. What you suggested would make a huge difference in how we'll my makeup does. All the serums and moisturizers makes me a bit oily and doesn't last like it should. I am bad about sunscreen! You're right I definitely need that! Thanks again, have a great day

Oh, the Beautystat vitamin C serum is great! You can use it in the AM, and a retinol serum at night. They Beautystat vit C serum uses an active form of vit C (ascorbic acid), and the Strivectin one uses a derivative that isn’t as effective. The combo of an ascorbic acid serum +sunscreen in the AM, and then a retinoid at night is a powerful anti-aging combo

You don't have to wait til bedtime to do your night routine. You can do it after dinner or after work or after the gym if you go in the evening. If it's 8 pm and you happen to go into the bathroom, just go ahead and do your nighttime skin care routine. As long as you're pretty much in for the night and not gonna do anything to "dirty" your skin or be exposed to the sun, you should be good. That way, if you fall asleep or get lazy, it's already done.
