Men of a certain vintage ought moisturize. I recommend visiting Koreatown Galleria in Los Angeles and consulting with the brilliant ladies of Palace Beauty Galleria. But at the very least do the following:
After you wash and rinse your face with cool/cold water:
- Apply a toner. I use Huxley. Allow toner to dry.
- Then pick a serum or essence or a couple as needed. Going from lightest to thickest, I usually alternate between niacinamide and retinol based serums.
- Finally, moisturize with a bit of L’Oreal Paris Skincare Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care Oil-Free Face Moisturizer for Normal to Oily Skin with Aloe Water and Hyaluronic 3.04 fl. oz.
All of this skin care is non-sense if you are not eating proper proteins and particularly, collagen. The retinol, niacinamide and moisturizers cannot revive flesh thats lost its natural elasticity.
I recommend buying collagen by the six-pack and sharing it with those you love. Collagen is a helpful add on to coffee or tea, and this type of protein helps with skin and joints. I recommend Great Lakes Collagen, buying bulk because it comes down to 18.75 per canister, which is a great discount.
