Monday we dished on Faith’s good looks, which are fueled by her marvelous spirit, Mediterranean diet, and what we guess to be a oxygen-generating sex life with her marvelous husband. Let’s peel away the hype to reveal the best skin care lines for midlife women such as Faith.
Let’s face it. We could get by in our 20s eating Dominoes pizza, pulling all nighters, washing our face with Dove, or not washing it at all. Not any more. By midlife we’ve lost up to 20% of our collagen layer, making our faces appear thinner, more gaunt, more tired, oh boy.
To regain a youthful look and glow, we need to eat a protein and plant-rich diet, sleep well, cleanse and condition our skin with skincare system that rids us of cracks, lines, age spots, sun spots and brings back the look that’s three or four layers down under.
A good skin care program will cleanse, exfoliate and moisturize your skin. Clinic has made a killing off its simple three-step approach, but Clinic along with hundreds of other brands is cosmetic quality not pharmaceutical grade.
Want to look like Faith Hill, specifically her beautiful skin? Faith uses iS Clinical by Innovative Skincare as does Halle Berry, Charlize Theron, and Kate Winslet. This skincare program is backed by a clinical trial with results confirmed by the FDA. You can get an anti-aging starter kit for $315 and its products are botanically based and work on a cellular level.
I’ve tried and love many skincare programs including Maria Badescu, Origins, and Aveda but at this stage in life I’m not messing around, I want results. So the following are pharmaceutical grade skincare lines that have medical documentation backed by the FDA to get you optimum results. (I’m open to comments if you think that I’m off base here).
Skin Correcting Skin Care Lines
Skin Medica is a dermatology-focused pharmaceutical company with products devoted to rejuvenation, nourishment and prevention of age-related collagen loss. The active ingredient Nouicel-MD contains human growth factors that have been clinically proven to improve the firmness and appearance of the skin. Skin Medica’s signature product is TNS and is widely recognized for its therapeutic value.
Obagi products are part of a skin care program that corrects problems on a deep cellular level. This line is best suited for patients with pigmentation that is associated with hormones or heavily sun damaged skin. The combination of Retin-A and hyrdroquinone increase cellular turnover and lighten and remove pigment. Texture is dramatically improved and troubled acne-prone skin is calmed. Complete kit will run you around $325.
Alyria is a skin care line that is formulated with proven ingredients in effective percentages and state of the art technology, including patented delivery systems, to improve skin tone and texture. This popular glycolic home care line also includes a wonderful Antioxidant Vitamin C serum and Anti-Dark circle night serum.
Vivite is a complete skin care program that incorporates glycolic acid and antioxidants in each product. This is a pharmaceutical grade glycolic program that accelerates cellular exfoliation and is best for treating aging and sun damaged skin.
Kinerase C8 Solutions claim they are the #1 pharmaceutical-grade wrinkle fighting treatment, C8 Peptide Intensive Treatment, now extends its line-refining power into a breakthrough under-eye solution with clinically proven dark-circle brighteners and lab-tested de-puffers. A starter kit is available for around $117.
SkinCeuticals product line are Brittany Speers line of choice (but she’s not midlife yet). SkinCeuticals use pharmaceutical-grade ingredients to help heal damaged skin as well as help protect healthy skin from future damage.
What are you using? What can’t you live without? Who do you think has the most beautiful skin of all over 50? Madonna? Diane Sawyer? Do tell.
The ladies at Rajeunir Medical Spa told me they once feared coming out to the waiting room to consult with an 85 year old woman. They expected the worst but were amazed when they met her and found that she looked no more than 65. Her secret was using sunscreen and Retina-A religiously for the past 30 years. Words to the wise for those who want to look like a movie star later in life.
