I am so confused as to what's the best regimen for my skin. I am 64yo, have dry skin (live in Las Vegas) and hyperpigmentation. I also have the lines from my nose to mouth and crepy skin on my neck. Currently in the AM, I use hyaluronic acid, vit C serum, rosehip oil, and La Roche-Posay Anthelios 60 as a sunscreen, in that order. In the evening I wash my face with Jason's mild cleanser and apply your collagen serum and alternate between your Skin Brightening Cream and your Vitamin A Cream. I would appreciate any advice or guidance you could give me as to the best regimen for my skin. Thanks for your time.

Please send me the ingredient list for Jason's mild cleanser (on bottle or carton).

Which hyaluronic acid are you using?

Jason is a mild detergent cleanser. Even this may be too much for your skin. You could try our oil based cleanser.

The Anthelios sunscreen is good.

The Timeless hyaluronic acid is not much of anything. You would be MUCH better off using our collagen serum instead. Our collagen serum contains hyaluronic acid, plus lots more. The advertising says "pure hyaluronic acid" serum to give the impression that it has a higher concentration of the active but that is not true. The concentration of hyaluronic acid is limited by its physical properties and we use the maximum we can get to dissolve!

Do you use our Vitamin C serum? It may be too much for you to use it every day. I think you will be better off with our Vitamin A cream at night, as an exfoliant and skin renewal tool, and using C serum at most once a week.

I think that this way your skin will feel more comfortable, less dry, and look better. If you add ELS serum, then even better.

Thank you for your quick response! I have a few questions. Should I continue to use your Skin Brightening Cream? And why should I only use Vit C once a week? I don't use your Vit C. The one I've been using is Rejuvelle 20%Vit C and Ferulic.
I really appreciate your help.

Again, I will have to look at their ingredient list. I don't know Rejuvelle. The similar names hide completely different ingredients so you can't use names as a guide. Some Vitamin C serums are bad.

Can't find the ingredient list. You will find it in the carton or bottle. The advertising is clearly misleading (=false). Plant stem cells will protect you from nothing (just like apple juice will protect you from nothing). Very annoying to see this.
