4 Products I Swear By For Healthy, Glowing Skin at 43 Years Old

As a pharmacist, skincare formulator, and woman who cares deeply about her skin health, I have experimented with countless skincare products over the years, and am proud to say that I have nailed down a routine that is simple yet effective, and helps effectively address common concerns that come with aging, like fine lines, dullness and sun damage.

I could go on and on about products I love and why (and ones that aren't worth your money!), but today I want to share my top four products that I swear by and don't skip on a daily basis to keep my skin glowing and healthy:

1. Retinol: The Anti-Aging Powerhouse

Retinol is a game-changer in the quest for youthful skin. As we age, our skin’s collagen production decreases, leading to wrinkles and sagging. Retinol, a form of Vitamin A, helps combat these signs of aging by stimulating collagen production and promoting cell turnover. Regular use of retinol reduces fine lines, evens out skin tone, and enhances overall skin texture. Incorporate a gentle retinol serum or cream into your nighttime routine to wake up with smoother, rejuvenated skin. Here's the one I use!

2. Vitamin C: Brighten and Protect

Vitamin C is a must-have for bright, radiant skin. This potent antioxidant helps fade dark spots, even out skin tone, and defend against environmental damage like pollution and UV rays. Additionally, Vitamin C boosts collagen synthesis, supporting firmer and more resilient skin. Incorporate our Glow Vitamin C Serum into your morning routine to achieve that coveted lit-from-within glow and shield your skin from daily stressors!

3. Double Cleansing: Cleanse Deeply Without Stripping

Double cleansing is a skincare ritual that ensures a thorough yet gentle cleanse. Start with an oil-based cleanser to dissolve makeup, SPF, and impurities accumulated throughout the day. Follow up with a water-based cleanser to remove any remaining residue and purify the skin without stripping its natural moisture barrier. Double cleansing prevents breakouts, congestion, and dullness, leaving your skin fresh, clean, and ready to absorb skincare products more effectively. Customize your system based on your skin type here! For mature skin, I recommend Fortiphy Cleansing Balm and Ritual Foaming Milk Cleanser.

4. SPF: Your Skin’s Best Defense

Sunscreen is non-negotiable for healthy, youthful skin at any age. UV exposure accelerates skin aging, leading to wrinkles, dark spots, and even skin cancer. Incorporate a broad-spectrum SPF 30 or higher into your daily routine, rain or shine. Besides protecting against UV damage, SPF preserves the benefits of your skincare routine by preventing sun-induced collagen breakdown. Make SPF the final step in your morning skincare regimen for comprehensive protection. These are my personal favorites:

1. Revision Intellishade

2. Dermablend Continuous Correction Evening CC Cream Foundation SPF 50+


Remember, the key to radiant skin lies in understanding your skin's needs and choosing products that nourish, protect and are made with natural, powerhouse ingredients. Embrace consistency and patience as you integrate these skincare gems into your daily routine, and watch your complexion transform!

Here's to healthy, luminous skin at 43 and beyond!
