    Have done a search, but couldn't find this topic. Please merge if I missed it.

    I know, that like myself some of you ladies and genlemen are in your 30's (and beyond). Whilst I am lucky not to have many lines (a fortunate legacy from my spotty youth) my skin defintely looks duller and has less tone.
    My skin is much drier on my cheeks, but still gets a bit oily on my forehead, nose and chin. I mostly use Olay products for every day, and a microdermabrasion mask weekly.

    I would welcome any advice on treatments/brands that would be of benefit to older skin. :heart:

    BullFrog QuikGel..

    OK, I know a lot of folks here are going to be horrified at that suggestion because BullFrog is mostly alcohol...

    However, BullFrog works every time--ditch all other cosmetics when seriously under the sun.

    Note: Don't place BullFrog above eyes--it will mix with sweat and flood eyes with stinging pain.

    Good UV shades protect eyes and delicate skin around eyes--Oakleys or RayBans.

    Other:

    Straw cowboy hat--available at any truck stop--cheap and easy way to protect your forehead, ears, and back of neck.

    ^US27 hit it spot on: sun protection.

    My boyfriend's mother has amazing, flawless, almost wrinkle-free skin at 42. She exercises frequently, eats very healthy, and she's pious with her skincare :P Of course genetics plays a big role in it all...

    ^More than 90% of wrinkles are caused by sun damage, genes don't matter as much as one would think

    ^That's actually very comforting to know... :lol: I avoid the sun like a vampire... Speaking of which, can you still suffer from Vitamin D deficiency if you avoid the sun, but include a lot of Vitamin D in your diet? I read in one of the other threads that "vitamin D is something you're supposed to get from the sun"
