I was wondering that. I have not seen one for 2019.

Diana, do you want to change the title, adding in "2019?"

Hi everyone!

Could I chime in with a question?

My skin is lots dryer than it ever was when I was younger. Changing hormone levels, I guess.

The irritating thing is that even though I need to moisturize my face, the ones I've tried so far have caused breakouts. (Wrinkles and pimples, oh, the joys of getting older.)

How do you figure out what to use on your face to moisturize?

This is making me a little nuts. So frustrating.

Anna, I use Neutrogena Visibly Even Moisturizer. It works good for me and I am picky about anything that goes on my face because when I was younger I had oily skin and was prone to breakouts.

Also, I just want to mention how much I love Toppik and Big Sexy Hair Powder Play. I am 60 and my hair has been thinning on top - Toppik has made a world of difference. I also have fine hair that tends to go flat and since Iíve been using Powder Play I no longer need to use a half can of hairspray every time I do my hair. They are miracle products as far as Iím concerned and I never have fewer than 2 bottles of each on hand. I had to laugh the other day when my order of Powder Play came to the house and my boy friend called me and said, ďDid you order some Sexy Powder?Ē If only it were that easy..

Number one for me is fragrance free. I'm allergic. It can also irritate the skin and make breakouts worse.

I use the CeraVe Cream in the tub. It has ceramides in it. It sounds counter intuitive, using a thicker cream. However, I have normal/oily skin, and it doesn't break me out. I like to put it on when my face is damp, and mix it with the water on my skin. It sinks right in, and doesn't leave a greasy feeling.

My other favorite is the Cetaphil Redness Relief Nighttime Moisturizer. It has ceramides and niacinimide in it. My teenage daughter, who has acne, likes this one too.

Some people like CeraVe PM Moisturizer. It's a liquid, and lighter than the cream. It also has ceramides and niacinimide.

I've been testing an oil I'm really enjoying. Its from 5Am Provisions. Amaranth oil. Its a dryer oil so it seems to sink in quickly and gives my skin moisture pretty much all day

I'm planning a video on it really soon.

OMG - Anna, i complained about this very thing just this week. I'm doing an experiment of "washing" my face with cold cream (I put it on, rub it in, and then rinse off with water and a gentle cloth). I have been following up with Thayers Witch Hazel for toner. So far, it has worked ok. No new breakouts and my skin seems moisturized. So, we shall see.... I figured it was a small investment $$-wise so I gave it a try.

Some moisturizers that have worked for me - the Cetaphil Redness Reilef that Sherry mentioned, also the Differin moisturizer....I was using Differin gel for awhile but i'm currently taking a break from it. I used to use Cerave but now whenever I use it I end up getting a lot of clogged pores...it is weird b/c I never had that problem before.

I used Simone France a few years ago and I was toying with going back to that, but I hate to spend a lot on beauty products since in essence they are all variations of the same formulas....still, when I used it I had decent results. I would probably use the normal/slightly dry now as opposed to the normal/oily.


Definitely frustrating to have wrinkles and acne/breakouts.....

I am in my mid 40s in the midst of Perimenopause and my skin bounces back and forth between scaly dry and hormonal breakouts. I am sensitive to most products and moisturizers break me out. I have tried many natural products. While switching to a WFPB diet made my skin glow, it didn't get rid of the sensitivity or hormonal breakouts. I've been using Deciem The Ordinary's anti-aging regimen and it has changed my skin texture and seems to be aging backwards. My routine is AM - after cleansing: Buffet (or Matrixyl & Argiriline), Marine Hyaluronics, followed by Natural Moisturizing Factors. PM- after cleansing: Buffet, Retinoid 2% in Squalane followed by Hemi Squalane or Cold Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil and Natural Moisturizing Factors. When I start to breakout I use their Niacinimide and it clears everything up within 1 day. I am impressed with their products, prices, and ingredients.
