The fall season has arrived! As the autumn season moves in, temperatures are moving into moderate territory. This means it is a great time to mix up my skin routine!

If you are like me, you spent a lot of time outside this summer. After all, it was one of the few places we could go during lockdown. This left my skin a little blotchy and dry. Therefore, the fall season is all about repair! This dark spot remover by ReVive is ideal for lightening dark spots left by the sun. It really brightens my skin. I use the Elemis Moisturizer in the morning, and the ReVive dark spot corrector at night as my moisturizer. It works really well!

This ReVive neck cream is a favorite of mine. I have been purchasing it since I was 28, and now I am well into my 40’s. It has spf protection, and keeps my neck firm. I love it!

In the fall season, I love gourmand and warm scents. This honey vanilla collection from Colleen Rothschild is perfect for autumn. It’s warm, and the perfect amount of silky sweetness. Plus, it does a great job of cleaning, and smoothing, my skin.

I have purchased the body butter in the past. I definitely go through this jar! One lasts me about six months. It smells so good, plus it corrects dry skin; leaving it smooth. It’s a must-have not only for fall, it’s a must-have all year long! Love it!

OK raise your hand if you hair is terrible right now! I spent the summer in the sun, and in the pool. Not only that, I have not had my highlights touched up since the first week of March! Our salons just reopened, so I need to run down there and get some color repair done. Aside from that, my hair has split ends, chlorine damage, and sun damage. Thank goodness for this hair care collection from Colleen Rothschild! I am using this fabulous hair mask every Sunday, and it is really helping my dry hair. I also love this hair serum, which is great to put on after I dry my hair. It smooths down my hair leaving it soft and controlled. Love that! I’m not sure how I survived before owning it!

The fall season is all about repairing the damage to our skin and our hair from all the fun we had in the sun over the summer! Everything I am showing in this post will help repair and correct summer damage. I love these products!

Thanks for stopping by!

Winter 2020 skin care routine

While it isn’t quite winter yet, the drier, colder temperatures are starting to occur; which means we all need to hydrate and repair the damage done from the warmer summer, and fall months. My winter 2020 skin care routine starts now!

My tan is beginning to fade, and what is left behind is an uneven skin tone. I’m excited to use this dark spot corrector as my day cream this cold weather season. It will fade spots on my skin, reduce the size of wrinkles, and add moisture where I need it. I have been a huge fan of Revive skin care since I was 28 years old, and it has always done what I have needed it to do to my skin. Love this cream!

I started using this neck cream when I was 28, and I haven’t turned back. This neck cream by Revive is my “old faithful,” and my smooth neck is here for it. I will use this cream forever. It works wonders, and prevents aging on my neck. This is something I need as my age creeps towards that half-century mark. Yikes!

It’s hard to find eye cream with spf. Why is it so hard? There are plenty of eye creams I have used over the years, and have fallen in love with, but why do they not contain spf? This eye cream offers SPF 15, and my eyes are thanking me for it.

It isn’t just the face that needs some love during the cold winter months. This body butter, and this hand cream, add just the right amount of moisture without being greasy, slippery, or icky. Love them!

Winter 2019 skin care routine

skin care over 40

from left: hand cream / eye cream / face cream / neck cream /

Winter is here! This means cold weather, drying indoor heat, wind, and dry skin. When my skin is dry, I try to keep my skin care routine simple so that my pores are not loaded up with junk. By using a small amount of the right products, I can keep winter dry skin at bay, and keep my skin looking as normal as possible.

First off, these pictures are not perfect. That is because I photographed products which I currently use. These are not pictures of products I have not opened yet, or not tried yet; these are my go-to skin care products for the winter! Some are new, and one I have been using for over fifteen years.

Skin care over 40

genx skin care over 40

Let’s face it, this GenX mother of three needs quality skin care over 40. That means my skin is over 40 years old; um, did I really just type that? Inside my head I am still 39 😉 anyhoo. . .

When you are over 40, or even under 30, or 20, it is important to take care of your skin. See that neck cream in the photo above? I have been going through one jar of it every six months for the last fifteen years. I started using this neck cream when I was in my late 20’s, and I have not tried anything else; I love it! Not to brag or anything. . . but. . .my neck looks pretty for a GenX gal. Just sayin’

If you are in your 20’s, snag this neck cream; and if you are over 30, over 40, over 50, etc. I promise it is worth every penny, and you will love, love love it!

The Elemis face cream has become an addiction of mine over the past two years. Their PR team sent it to me originally, and I threw it into my NYFW suitcase shortly after receiving the PR package. It was a February fashion week when the temperatures can dip below zero, and dry air was at it’s peak. I was thrilled to have Elemis in my arsenal! I am hooked, and have been using it everyday since. I especially love it during the dry months, and in the winter. I’m on my fourth jar of it, and pretty soon I will need to buy a fifth jar! It’s so good. I cannot imagine using any other face cream when the air is dry. It adds the right amount of moisture while providing the anti-aging power my over 40 skin needs. Ugh, did I just admit to being over 40 again? I’m 39. . . 39 ya hear! (only in my head, a-hem)

Estee Lauder’s eye cream is more of a gel-cream. I started using it earlier this year and have found it works really well when the air is dry. I love how my under-eye skin is reacting to it this season. It really is adding moisture without adding shine or other problems to my skin. Also, my fine lines seem diminished; so I am hooked!

I just started using Colleen Rothschild’s hand cream a few months ago. I have noticed I need less hand cream applications during the day since I started to use it. This hand cream has really helped my hands a lot! I only need it in the morning, and before bed. No amount of house cleaning, and hand washing, can break the seal this hand cream creates. I think it must be repairing my skin, because my hand skin is not getting as dry as it used to. Not sure this will work for everyone, but for me, I am addicted and hooked for life! I suggest trying it if your hands get dry!
