My Over 50 Nighttime Skin Care Routine: Moisturizers, Gels, and Olive Oil!
YouTube player

Risa shows us her over 50 nighttime skincare routine to maintain her youthful appearance and glowing skin. She filmed this video when she was in Mexico a few weeks ago. If you haven’t seen the YouTube video where she gave us a full penthouse tour, you are going to want to! Risa stayed at a huge penthouse with a gorgeous ocean view right in the heart of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.

In this video, Risa shows us all the different products that she uses depending on the time of the year and her skin’s needs. A cool hack that she shares is using vaseline to remove eye makeup! It’s gentle and takes off all eye makeup without any hassle. After removing her makeup, Risa always uses micellar treatment by Pause to remove any remaining makeup. This  step is really important because you don’t realize how much makeup and debris remains on the skin after makeup “removal” and it is great for hydrating the skin.

A recent product that Risa started using is a vitamin C serum and a retinol serum. She pats 3 drops of both on each side of her face and 1 drop of neck. Vitamin C and Retinol are amazing  nutrients that nourishes and revives the skin. Vitamin C and Retinol is the secret anti-aging “cream” to maintain youthful skin. 

For those of us in winter, Risa shares Rosemary Gladstar’s Face cream which is she got from Andrea Reisen from Healing Spirits Herb Farm. It is a homemade cream 100 % natural organic herbs and oils. Risa actually made a video where Andrea and Reisen gave us a tour and highlighted some of the best products from Healing Spirits Herb Farm.  Another product that is helpful to combat cold, dry weather is olive virgin oil. It doesn’t make you break out like you may think. Instead, it protects your skin from the dryness and rehydrates it. Lastly, Risa shares that she likes to use a light cream in the morning such as Christian Dior Capture Youth Face Cream rather than a heavier cream.

Here are links to the skin care products that Risa mentioned in the video.
