Hello! I have spent the last 3 hours reading so many great questions and answers. I am 45 and have been using Neocutis products and I really like them but I cannot afford them. i was using Cetaphil for cleansing, Blanche for hyper-pigmentation ( mostly from old and new picking), Nouvelle 6 as a retinal and Bio-gel or Riche for moisture. I use my Mia once or twice a day as well. Can you recommend a program like this for me that is less costly? Also I need a good sunscreen- one for under make-up that can withstand sweat and being in the water a lot and one that can be used in the winter when I am doing neither of these things :) I am starting peri-menopause as well and am seeing more acne ( I have had acne on and off for years which has n=been MUCH better with Neocutis), and I am seeing some fine lines. Tall order, I know!
Yes – I absolutely hear you. Sometimes the budget just can’t stretch that far and you still want good skin, of course!
How about something more like this:
PM: Cetaphil cleanser, a Vitamin C 20% serum (lots of good brands now so check out others for price) and the Elta UV Sport Waterproof Sunscreen ($22) in the summer and the tinted in the winter.
PM: Cetaphil cleanser, Cerave Lotion or Cream Moisturizer (eye area also) and this OTC Retinol.
Let me know how you do! Dr. I
