Anti Aging Skincare Routine For Women Over 50


today we’re really lucky to have a
special guest Will Fennell and he is a skin care expert and he’s going to teach
us everything we need to know step-by-step on how to keep our skin
looking amazing after the age of 50 Will’s also a skin therapist and he’s
been passionate about this since he was 15 years old I opened my first salon
when I just finished beauty school and so I’ve I had that cell on now for about
twenty four years and that sort of just evolved then I loved helping people so
then I started writing for a small magazine and a newspaper and then that
evolved into being the grooming guy then a television show called
ten years younger in ten days and you do training as well yeah but the product
line that I work within that I have loved my whole life is a line from
Germany could Biodroga and my relationship with them has also spanned
20 years and now I work with for them all around the world is one of their
trainers what is it that you can teach all of us ladies who are in our 50s
going through menopause and trying to work out what it is to do with our skin
what what’s your expert advice I think you really need to realize that you say
each of this wonderful age that the skin has changed it’s so the structure of the
skin has changed the amount of oil it’s producing is change so therefore it’s
losing more moisture so you really need to treat it differently than you did in
your 30s and 40s looking at in a way that you know really have to start
treating it gently but you still need to use powerful anti-aging ingredients so
sometimes those two things don’t go together yeah because we think that we
need because it’s we’re getting older we need to go harder and and when you’re
dealing with you know menopausal skins they become quite thin so they
become thin they become more creepy yes oh there’s a lack of a lack of density
to the skin and then that of course is causing all the moisture loss and lack
of oil so the skin is that able then to help itself so you just need to be able
to provide ingredients the skin would normally naturally hell on the surface
or inside the skin so you can actually heal and repair and
regenerate itself on the inside as well okay so is that something that we can
all do with everyone’s different stage they’re at because some women have a lot
more wrinkles or a lot more dryness than others so does this does this work for
everybody I think this principle no absolutely
absolutely I think you know my philosophy is to keep things very very
simple so correcting the skin using active ingredients is very important I
think the most important thing you can do is maintaining the barrier of the
skin to make sure that the skin has enough oil and moisture to protect
itself they’re also feeding it ingredients like
vitamin A and vitamin C and E and peptides but if you can maintain the
barrier in the skin and that’s all skin types from oily to dry maintaining that
barrier making sure the skin is happy I say if your skin is happy it can help
itself okay so can you explain to us what’s the barrier and like how do we
look after it and how do we know if it’s not okay yeah so the first of all
knowing is not okay the skin will tell you I serve your skin is itchy if it’s
red dry irritated if it’s not radiant it’s not happy I so the skin will
actually tell you can look in the mirror you can see straight away you can look
in the mirror and say okay my skin doesn’t look with it it’s not happy okay
so straight away your skin will tell you so how you can help that is as I said is
is making sure that you are providing enough oil and moisture okay so while
the moisture comes from your moisturizing cream and so making sure
you have a great barrier cream they actually did a lot of research to show
that just daily use of a sunscreen during the day and a good barrier cream
at night was where the most powerful antiaging came from is that right it
wasn’t it wasn’t the you know over over a long period of time so consistently
using sunscreen to protect us from the Sun and a really good barrier cream and
and the skin as I said the skin is an amazing organ it can actually heal and
repair itself if we just make sure that that barrier is
intact okay so if the ladies are thinking like there’s nowhere to go and
they’ve gone too far a barrier cream yeah best start with very with that I
think you know that’s good yeah you know industry right now you know we have lots
of amazing treatments and a lots of amazing ingredients and they are
definitely the second step but the first step and I get a lot of clients come
into our salon and they want now they want this game amazing well now
absolutely we won’t know that they they come in and they say you know I want to
peel I want needling and I’m like okay stop but we need to do is we need to
repair the barrier of the skin and then the next stage is introducing our
actives introducing skin needling and laser there’s a place for that and
especially there’s a place for that in 50 plus skins but that is the second
step that first stage is making sure that your skin is happy first it’s very
very easy to get caught up in the excitement of wanting things to change
straightaway and I guarantee you have these things done and the first thing
you see in your skin is reaction and irritation okay so because we’re
disrupting the barrier yeah so a number one job over the age of 50 is to look
after our barrier absolutely because stop destroy all these things that we
keep trying over 50 you your natural barrier will also be reduced because
you’re not producing as much oil in the skin so you’re losing you’re losing more
moisture to the surface so the actual barrier in itself becomes less and less
and less as we get older so if we put a barrier cream on at night does that stop
the moisture coming at it so it’s like that’s locking it in absolutely I mean
we often think that we lose the most moisture from the skin during the day
but we actually have the most trans epidermal loss which is moisture loss
from the outside layers at the skin while we sleep so during the even is a
very important time that we hydrant the skin and then lock that in with a
barrier cream perfect that’s so good to know so what’s the products that you
would recommend that’s something can it be any product does it have to
have a certain consistency does it have other ingredients so I think it is when
you’re looking for creams in barrier type creams you look for moisture creams
so creams that are that are really focusing and dealing on dehydration and
moisture loss and also you know ingredients like hyaluronic acid
ceramides Marlene these and oils precious oils so the mix of these
ingredients is very similar to what we have on the surface of the skin so you
want a product that basically mimics that’s that oil without protection the
skin is naturally producing so we have we have this barrier naturally yeah but
we know hot showers yeah rubbing our face using products we should do it
destroys that so what we want to do is actually put an artificial barrier but
this is very similar to our natural barrier on the surface and then happy
skin that’s awesome because it’s so simple it’s not a complicated it’s not
okay because I would have thought do all the other things first to get rid of all
the stuff onto it yeah but no no no I mean I think the simple approach to skin
care is the best I was there’s two words to statistic in care simple and
consistent simple and consistent yes when you over complicate things skin
gets very irritated okay and as soon as you have irritated skin you have micro
inflammation or or small inflammation in your skin and that is actually aging
okay so keep it simple okay and like a gym routine you can build it up I know I
take time off the gym and then I go and I do a huge arm workout the next day
Mike my muscles at all right so your skin is the same so start really slowly
and you can definitely build it up I could probably use far more actives than
someone who has not used them before yes and have you no problem so if you
haven’t used all the active ingredients before you don’t need to start now you
start getting something really serious moisturizing is in at night first a good
skin therapist will actually get you on a
simple routine first okay and what would that then that is that would be three
steps if you wanted to do three steps of cleaning the skin I love cleansing oils
okay I think you know cleansing oil cleans
the skin beautifully without drying the skin people think oh I had oil that
whale removes makeup beautifully removes oil and it completely it completely
cleans the skin without destroying any of the protective barrier so a cleansing
oil is perfect and then second if you’re going to have a serum at the beginning
of your your routine morning morning and evening is work with hydrating serum
okay high and low molecular hyaluronic acid really moisturizing really
moisturizing and then a barrier cream okay as first step so is cleanse
hyaluronic and barrier barrier as your first step so that should banish your
intro that’s that’s your first month or two getting the skin and really prepared
and then you can start introducing vitamin C vitamin A powerful peptides
and the acids yes okay so the ladies are just getting started to look after their
skin it’s step one oil cleanse stick to hyaluronic acid step through barrier
cream perfect morning and night yeah and as I’m saying no sunscreen is great
after they’ve done that for a couple of months they thing can introduce
absolutely so morning what would be the steps in the morning so in the morning
is in the morning cleanse always I like to prep my skin when I’m treating or one
and when I’m having my products my own routine at home yeah I always prep my
skin and then during the day I use vitamin C vitamin C ascorbic acid in a
hyaluronic acid with hyaluronic acid would be my second ingredient to mine
perfect or separate no two in combining one serum I know they combined really
beautifully together and then you marry a crane vitamin C is a powerful
antioxidant yeah it brightens the skin so you need to look for a stable form of
vitamin C and an it’s your second step and then barrier cream or barrier cream
and sunscreen okay and this is stage 2 and what do we do stage 2 it nice and
then in the evening again – to clean your skin with an oil
cleanser or if you want another clear cleansing fluid but and sort of mature
skins I would stay away from anything that phones because you don’t want to be
yeah you don’t want to be removing any of those precious oils that you you know
your skin already normally has I’m some like some people have very oily skin and
their natural instinct is to foam and remove it because that feels good when
you you know I had actually growing up so I I still a bit squeaking should
motivate my screen my skin not squeak say yes so cleansing or a really gentle
cleansing floor or cleansing water but stay away from things that follow okay
so but I I know I’ve heard about yes you start working with a cleansing oil
you won’t want to stop okay and then so second step you know in this in this
phase that you’re in would be working with serums that have vitamin ie
right vitamin A helps the skin cells to function properly
okay so vitamin A again vitamin C yeah and vitamin E those three work very well
together vitamins a powerful antioxidant as well works very well with a C and E
and they tend to recharge each other and work through and together work better
than I is saying it always work better together as an antioxidant it has energy
of something and then peptides and peptides are like if you can imagine
personal trainers for the skin so what these little personal trainers do is we
have these amazing cells in our skin that produce collagen and collagen is
what fills out the skin you know when we’re 20 but we’re 20 or you have all
this collagen have to take for granted we do but they produce collagen and they
produce elastin and what peptides do they’re like little personal trainers
that say produce collagen produced elastin and so they make you produce
more they’re man-made ingredients wonderful ingredients they’re like I
love than them I’m crazy for peptides in skincare but they work they really work
so they my main ingredients a ECE and the peptides and then you have the
acids as well okay so alpha hydroxy acids and beta hydroxy acids okay so initially
I’d go with that routine so we’re at stage two we wouldn’t be using the acid
no no no there’s no need to there’s no need to go straight I mean the thing is
as I said if you keep things as simple okay okay okay you could then introduce
that’s your daily routine then you’re introduced and then you finish with the
barrier okay okay always finish with the path always finish with the barrier and
then in this part of the program you could introduce a once-a-week
AHA exfoliant mask okay not daily once I don’t think yes I I think that
you know if you’re going to if you’re going to be using all those actives
every day you don’t necessarily have to be using acid every day okay there was a
real acid really sure where people were over exfoliating and I actually saved a
lot of my clients you are an over exfoliator because you know that this is
an idea I just want to remove as much dead skin cells as possible there is no
need to do that you know it’s encouraged a lot I think on YouTube another
no no and people are buying there are certain brands that I think
are a bit naughty because they’re really saying to people with your home peels
yeah and okay yeah I mean you know and these pills
don’t necessarily we shouldn’t necessarily be in the hands of people
at home so we in the brand I work with Biodroga we have a great it’s a
10-minute like a hecho mask okay you you pop it on and then you leave it for five
to seven minutes massage it in a little bit with water
and then rinse it off and once a week once a week that’s all you do if you
were to use a product like that three or four times a week is they’re just gonna
upset the barrier and make you drier so if you what happen if you could imagine
your skin is like a garden so if you came along if you think about it if you
came along with a fire blower and blow away all of the grass and all of the
plants and and it was bare and Burt yeah that is what acids do is by Nature
they burn the surface of the skin they really you know they burnt that there if
you were to do that three times a week four times a week those skin that garden
will never repair it will never recuperate
it will never recuperate yeah if you did it once
you would see if you gave them the water and energy and some fertilizer the
plants would grow back just looks like a bushfire going through the bush yeah
eventually it will regenerate but if another fire goes through it never gets
a chance to many of us could be actually doing too much too much too much and
you’re saying keep it very simple I see it all the time I a lot of people won’t
clients come in to see us and the thing is that I can see straight away that too
much is happening how can you get a lot of reactions through the know through
the nose area they start to get visible capillaries yeah a lot of a lot of
people talk about the capillary they’ve got they’ve got dryness and a lot of
this comes from barrier impairment through through the wrong use of
products okay that’s so good to know because I think I’m guilty of so much I
mean I I can’t offer after my business partner will say to me hmm
have you been trialing products because I tried a lot of products and yeah if I
do the different product you know three or four nights in a row yeah
my skin is are not happy and you can see that is that you can see that it’s not
happy yeah when you get those little red capillaries can you get rid of those
they do repair but it’s just it’s just an indication that you’ve done too much
I’ve got to slow down well with little capillaries basically what’s happened is
the blood has rushed into them they have expanded but not restricted okay so
they’re what we call chemically dilated and then they become visible to the eye
so it’s a normal thing for the the capillaries to expand to dialect right
okay but what we want them then to do is district and we can actually with
skincare we can make sure they they they do that job with
area repairment and and that action it all comes down to the health of the skin
yeah the skin’s health is intact it will in naturally a it goes what – absolutely
it will naturally aid that process and then going back to what you said right
at the beginning need to keep it very very simple so will I guess my question
to finish everything up is how do we know what products to choose and how are
we going to just go out and find the right thing because many of us are doing
the wrong thing I think that the first thing to understand is that skin doesn’t
understand anything to do with brand names so see you know the skin doesn’t
know if you’re using a B or C what if a company is telling you you have to use
all our products because your skin noses then telling you the truth that’s the
only thing skin understands is ingredients okay so you just had to know
what to look for and if you look on the back of your your box you’ll see the
list of ingredients my Lord has to be there yeah I don’t be listed from the
most to the least so with skincare it comes down to how the skincare is made
and how we get those ingredients into the skin because anyone can take all
those ingredients during I put it on to you but whether or not you can get those
ingredients into where they’re supposed to be is another thing that’s the we
skincare will get it if I can get a list of ingredients and I can just put them
up so that everybody can see so when they’re doing their own shopping
absolutely and research they can know what ingredients to use and then they
can start with step one and then step two your skincare and then go on to the
step 3 I’ll write you a write you a list of
ingredients that would be so good alright list of my top ten favorite
ingredients okay if you were to look for these ten ingredients in your skincare
then you you really can’t go wrong okay that’s really good it’s really helpful
my confusion and I think a lot of people’s confusion is we think we’re
getting older so we’re gonna go so hard to get rid of it all but okay you’ve
taught me a lot today yeah beautiful skin and so do you
thank you thank you thank you so much we really
appreciate it and thank you for teaching all of us something a little bit more
about skincare thank you very much okay thanks everyone for watching and please
give a thumbs up if you enjoyed this video and share if you’ve got any
friends who want to hear what wills got to say and we’re really lucky to have
had that from him thank you so much for watching and have a beautiful week

100 thoughts on “Anti Aging Skincare Routine For Women Over 50

  1. Great information!! Thank you so much. It’s good to know I’m on the right track. When I first ventured into anti-aging skincare, my skin would get angry with me and produce surface capillaries. When I asked my dermatologist and other skincare experts about it, I was told skincare cannot cause this reaction. The capillaries must be zapped to get rid of them. I thought maybe my skin was unusual because I knew the cause and how to repair it—and zapping it was not necessary.

  2. This was great, and his skin looks great. I've had really good experiences with German makeup so I'm going to check out the skin care.

  3. I’m 50 and have been using DHC’s cleansing olive oil for years. I ran out once and ran to Walgreen’s and found Albolene makeup remover and that’s good too, plus it’s cheaper. I use Organic rosehip oil which is a natural retin A. Mad Hippie is also a good brand for those of us looking for non-toxic skincare.- Also, regardless of brand, excessive washing/tugging is not good for our skin. If I take a shower, do a good skin care regime and stay home without wearing makeup, I don’t wash again when I go to bed. Even gentle, organic, non-toxic cleansers can be used too much. Thank you for your video! You are beautiful!

  4. Hi first time viewer, great video. Question I use Retin A at night 3//4 nights a week should I put a barrier cream over it I saw on You Tube to just put it on and go to bed? Also are Medical Grade products are the ones you must use at age 50 so they will go deeper into the skin? Thank you 😊

  5. I am in my mid 50s. The video provides good information. But the rate of satisfaction for any DIY homemade snake oil treatment or drug store skin care products is ZERO…i don't put cream on my face. If you insist, please check a video by Dr obagi who is the founder of ZO MEDICAL that supplies prescription skin care products to dermatologist. They also carries the none prescription version online as well. I also recommend a book by Dr Anthony youn who is also a dermatologist the book is called THE AGE FIX.

  6. He is correct however as a 61 year young woman I have discovered A MAJOR KEY for us that I have NEVER heard mentioned by any skin care professional ..I am taking before photo's then going to show what I discovered to reverse the wrinkles without surgery without spending money on yet even more skin care product's. .I have never had any kind of cosmetic surgery but I have spend a fortune on expensive skin care product's without seeing any difference in wrinkles UNTIL NOW

  7. I watched a video about making homemade moisturizer using rice because it’s full of vitamins and you add vitamins A&E and adding vegetable glycerin for a preservative. What do you think of this?

  8. Great video, I do have a question for Will. What key ingredients should I look for in a barrier cream? Thank you!!

  9. Hi I am 27 I have oily and sensitive skin so I don't know if you could help me and recommend for me something for me to used thanks

  10. This is awesome. As someone who has really not paid any attention to her skin can and now at 51 is freaking out a little this will definitely help me. Thank you so much to you and Will.

  11. Hi I have sagging ness on my face were I smile can you tell me wat can I use to remove this I need a cream or wat ever you recommend for me to use thats very inexpensive i cant afford nothing expensive an also wat cream to use in the morning an at night

  12. Thank you for the video. I learned a lot! My question is if I am using Trentenoin 1% when would I use it in my pm routine? I am told it goes first and use nothing else….then I hear to use a moisturizer, wait an hour then use retin a. I have been washing my face, wait 1 hour, put the retin a on, wait an hour and then use matrixyl synth 6 and a moisturizer. I have noticed a lot of new broken capillaries you spoke of. Also, what is your thoughts on micro needling?

  13. I only use all natural stuff on my skin but mostly go make up free. I use oil on my skin after washing up. Once in a while I use a natural lip gloss that has some color. My skin is really a good color, not any spots on my arms or body. I do have some broken blood vessels on my legs but those can be covered easily with a good cover that matches your skin shade.

  14. OMG!! I have been rethinking my skincare routine and have wanted someone to do a video like this. I am 48 and have post menopausal skin that tends to be more dry. I will spend money on my skincare but I feel like not all of our skincare has to be expensive to be effective. So thank you for the information!!

  15. Hi Schellea,
    Thankyou so much for the advice in your video.
    I have started a new skin care regime using oil to cleanse, it works well at gettng make up off….never thought of using it before 🙄
    My skin was really dry and got spots…..I'm Perimenapausal….it's like being a teenager again 😆
    My skin is settling down yaay.
    Plus HRT patch also helping.
    With sincere happy Spring wishes for a beautiful week.

  16. Wear sunscreen every single day of the year, even during rains and winter. UVA rays are ‘slow agers’ which can harm your skin throughout the year. Sunscreen will protect you from any kind of harmful rays.Try Now https://bit.ly/2y5AbGH

  17. Hello gorgeous 🌹🌹🌹Again thank you for great video . I sow products from ordinary ,is they are really good..? I have the ordinary store Deciem close to my place where I live .🌹🌹🌹

  18. I would love to know how you would incorporate all of these products in your life if you have comedogenic skin.

  19. 🌹 Fabulous Lady,
    Thank you for this informative video. 🌹 Quite an amazing video. 🌹
    I am 59 and take good care of my skin, but I use a soft baby towel to remove the cleanser on my face. Would you consider that wrong? Help! 🌝 Thanks!

  20. He knows what he is talking about, and I tell you why. Long ago I had to see dermatologist in Berlin to get rid of ugly sun and pregnancy freckles. He treated me with mainly acid to get rid of them, not laser which in my case can cause a disaster result, and he told me to use Avène gentle soap cleansing gel, to wash my face every night, because all the other foam aggressive soaps are just no good for my skin. I have been using Avène for over 20 years.

  21. Having had breast cancet. I was told not to use sunscreen becsuse it has a chemical in it that mimics estrogen which is a big no no. Stay away from makeup with sunscreen.

  22. I just wanted to ask a couple of questions. Do I use an exfoliator in stage one or is that for stage two. Is the stage 1 skin care routine ok to use on the neck and chest area as well. Also is there anything you can recommend for the arms as my arms have become crepey and the skin is loose. This seemed to have happened virtually overnight when I lost 10 kgs in a very short amount of time. Thanks

  23. Thank you for the glycerin recipe. My mom is 60 and swears by AHA because she can’t use Retin A or Retinols. Is AHA as good? Her skin looks fantastic but I think it’s genetics 🧬 which I’m hoping I inherited. But I’m interested if AHA's can replace Retin A. Thank you if you can answer 🌹

  24. Thanks Shellea and Will………..the charts were great! Allowed me to screen print and keep until I am use to this routine. Much love 😘😬

  25. Thanks for this! Even I gained. I used to be a MARY KAY Beauty Consiltant for 10 years and these are ingredients in their Miracle set And their latest over 40 set, well worth the price for when am working.

  26. Thanks so much!! Love your channel!
    I been combination skin type for years, will it change now one is in 50’s?
    Since this is for face, what of whole skin-body? (At the moment liking 1-2x a week dry body-brush-exfoliation before showering mainly soap less (cept for armpit n obvious); then touch-dry; layer on mixture of creams n Shae butter; then Vaseline to seal it all in. Just a little side-extra if help anyone.

    Back to face skin care:-
    Also is there anything I should take note of here ( and on channel) since my skin colour is different?

  27. My fav cosmetic specialist on here recommended that I spray my face periodically during the day with just rose water and veg. glycerine, and that has really helped. So does a layer of petroleum jelly on my face all night. wow..never would have thought that would do a thing or be good for it, but it seems to be a HUGE help. ???? What do you think of this program? I use other things as well as far as oils and sun screen, but this does seem to help a lot.

  28. I am really enjoying learning from your videos! I am unsure what a "barrier"cream is…Is that what we in American call a moisturizer?

  29. I am 52. I am wondering about your thought on the current rage of micro-needling? I have had it done by my dermatologist (for $600.00) but noticed so many "DIY" kits for sale. I researched on needle length, thickness, type etc. I picked what I thought is a good one, but would love to hear your thoughts! Thanks for all this great info on your videos!

  30. Fyi…hyraluronic acid dried my skin out badly. Had to stop using it. If your skin is naturally dry and you live in a dry climate, it will pull moisture from your skin instead of the desired effect of pulling moisture to the skin.

  31. I’m SO PLEASED the use of sunscreen is highlighted, I’ve worked in theatre with plastic surgeons, I’ve seen some terrible damage from skin cancer. So many of us have asked them what to use and they’ve all said SUNSCREEN, if you use only sunscreen you’ll not just protect your skin but it’s anti aging! There are so many so called beauty videos on u tube and so few advocates the use of sunscreen!

  32. Thank you soo this was very informative!! I do have a question please😬, should I continue or not using my my mia face electric machine? Sometimes, I feel it’s harsh? Any advice….will be grateful …,.Thank You again!

  33. Hi I love your videos and advices but in this video I didn’t understand what do you mean a barrier cream
    I live in Jordan please if you can give the names or brand of these creams I can order online or find it here
    And as much as I know vit C can’t be applied at day time even the sunblock isn’t enough is this information right or wrong

  34. Totally agree about keeping routine simple and barrier. BIG fab of vitamin C taken internally. Lot of science supports sun protection and vitamin C ingested.

  35. I saw this vid today and i must say Will is fantastic. I have never seen an expert talking this way, so clearly and simplify skin health. Thank you very much.

  36. This was FANTASTIC! I REALLY appreciate the recommendations especially a high end option and a drug store option. Love your channel!

  37. I have used so many products and still haven't found the right one. Which brand is good for extremely dry skin?

  38. I just ran across this video and I cannot tell you how I appreciate this information! I am 54 and I am so behind with my skin care because I have been so lazy about it! I have ordered the version of the recommended items to start making a positive difference on my skin. Thank you so much! God bless!

  39. aack! This stuff is expensive… For the 4 products needed for a very basic routine would cost me over $400 if I bought his products… I know it's good stuff and well worth the cost, but man-alive, this is not affordable for me at all. I guess I'll have to continue looking like an old hag… lol Great video! I loved the education on skincare. One of my favorite topics.

  40. Thank you and Will, this is very informative. I have a good routine for my skin but I didn't use the oils thank you. You two are so cheery! Have a great weekend.

  41. I find that All oils work amazing and they're not expensive. And Pacifica sunscreen is the best! Best !

  42. I use coconut oil/ butter to moisturize and also made an exfoliater by just adding sugar. Makes beautiful skin !

  43. The products sound great,
    but unfortunately they contain fragrance in them, which is not good for the skin. Still unsure why companies keep putting purfume in skin care. Thanks to dermatologists on you tube, that are educating us on product knowledge.

  44. A thoroughly excellent video! As a skincare specialist myself it's pretty much what I advise my own clients. Barrier protection is key! 💖💖
