Easy, Low-Cost Skin Care That Works!
I started paying attention to my skin when I hit 50. Before that, I would slap on whatever was around, used sunscreen only when I was at the beach, and figured “Oh well, I’ve already damaged it by spending countless hours in the sun, slathered with baby oil mixed with iodine, speeding up the damage by using a reflector.”
It was when I got my first 10x mirror, which showed every wrinkle and dark spot on my face, that I finally made an appointment with Dr. Doris Day, who has been on every major TV show, in all the magazines, and is in high demand for her expertise on everything having to do with skin, from acne to skin cancer to the latest cosmetic procedures.
Here are Dr. Day’s recommendations for doing right by my--and your-- 50+ skin.
Makeup Remover: She still says Albolene cream, which can be bought in any drug or mass merchandise store, is the best.
Sunscreen: No need to go crazy with SPF 100; that’s a marketing ploy. But you should use at least 30 SPF, and preferably 50. Her favorites are Neutrogena and COLORSCIENCE, which is a terrific product in the form of a powder. It comes in clear, or with a little hint of color, and best for the face. But, the best sunscreen, Dr. Day says, is the one you use, i.e. it’s better to use the one you’ve already bought than to use none.
