What are the best anti-aging products for women over 50-60?

Hello, Thank you so much for this wonderful website full of valuable information! I would like to know your opinion and recommendation on Vitamin C serum or anti-aging lotions for facial wrinkles and lines, particularly for age 60 plus women. Thank you!!

You’re welcome!!  I think that excellent products at any age can make a difference when used consistently and coupled with sun avoidance, which allows your skin to activate it’s natural repair mechanisms. We have seen in our office, very wrinked, sun damaged 50-60 plus skin improve remarkably with a combination of good anti-aging products, some fillers, botox and lasers. You’re on the right track because good products are the starting point.

I guess I’m trying to say that I want you to be realistic also. Good skincare products can’t fix everything as we age.  🙂

To answer your question, I’ll refer you to my skincare regimen.

The Vitamin C serum is best put on cleansed skin under your other products, including your sunscreen every morning.  Here are some good Serums to use.

What to look for in a serum.

Look for ones that contain L-ascorbic acid, have a pH of about 3.5 and are, if alone, about 15-20%. If combined with other antioxidants, a slightly lower percentage is fine.

Hope this helps, Dr. I

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes! I have handpicked some of what I consider to be the best skin care products, and offer them for sale on SkinTour's shop. This is based on my team and I's testing and research at our clinic. Many of the products are in my own regimen. What could be better than using skin care products a dermatologist uses?!
