As you look back on your year, I want you to focus on how you have cared for yourself, specifically your skincare routine.

Let’s get our face ready for the new year and beyond. Let’s put our best face forward, and that starts with using the right anti-aging products.

When people meet me, they are amazed that I have three kids, let alone a teenager who is turning 16 and we are throwing her Sweet 16 birthday party tomorrow! Looking and feeling my best is absolutely important to me, and improving and maintaining my ageless appearance is the best way to love myself. I also want to be a good role model for my daughters in self-care by being consistent with daily skincare habits. Using the right skincare products are a must!

The Ultimate Checklist for Buying Anti-Aging Skincare Products


I was so excited to meet the Southern California Exuviance consultants at the Exuviance Relaunch Event at Ulta Beauty Store in Huntington Beach. This event celebrated their new branding and packaging and to highlight two of their two new products Wrinkle Smooth Topical Peptide and Lift Volumizing Concentrate formulated to reveal brighter younger-looking skin. These two new products deliver professional-level results that are med-spa inspired treatments for home use. No needles required!


It was amazing to see the consultants in action, assisting women with serious questions about their skincare. They were profoundly caring and helpful in helping women find solutions to their skincare needs. It is so easy to get stumped on which products to choose, but don’t sweat, I am here to provide you with eight skincare essentials that you need for anti-aging. This simple, key checklist will help you make shopping for new skincare products to target visible signs of aging a breeze!

The Ultimate Checklist for Buying Anti-Aging Skincare Products

Multitasking Cleanser

We all know that it is important to cleanse our faces morning and night. But, do we really know why? Our skin regenerates every night and we need to better support that process by keeping our faces clean. It makes the tasks so much easier for our skin cells when the surface is fresh and new. If you make it a habit to go to bed without cleaning your face (yes, I do it too), then you will find that your skin will age quicker.

My favorite face wash is AGE REVERSE Bioactiv Wash, which contains a Polyhydroxy Acid blend, including Maltobionic Acid, formulated to gently exfoliate and lightly resurface skin texture, revealing a fresh, new complexion.

Facial Scrub

I love to exfoliate! It feels good to apply a gentle scrub that loosens dead skin cells and dull patches. We all have beautiful skin, ladies. It is just hidden underneath. After using an exfoliator, my skin looks polished and glowing. I prefer to use a mild exfoliator that I can use weekly rather than a concentrated one that I can only use a month.

The Exuviance Triple Microdermabrasion is a simple, yet powerful treatment with a unique blend of physical, chemical and enzyme rejuvenators. It contains Papaya Enzyme and Glycolic Acid help break down impurities that contribute to congested pores, break up dead skin cells and lackluster patches, and buff skin to a radiant silky softness and glow.

Potent Serum

After you have cleansed your face and used your exfoliator as needed, you have created the perfect landscape for your skin to absorb ingredients. To reveal a younger-looking complexion, you want a serum that assists you in regenerating your skin cells. Exuviance brand’s Wrinkle Smooth Topical Peptide, a potent concentrated serum of proven benefit ingredients, is designed to encourage a smooth look for the skin, especially the upper half of the face.

This serum targets frown lines on the forehead, between the brows and around the eyes. And, to support the natural hydration of your skin while delivering skin lifting benefits, the Lift Volumizing Concentrate, especially when used around cheekbones and the lower half of the face, is vital. You can also then smooth it over the entire face for added hydration benefits.

Ultimate Moisture

Winter is in full swing and most of us, if not all, are feeling the effects of cold and dry temperature. Healthy and glowy skin is definitely not dry skin. When your skin is dry, the appearance of any fine lines and wrinkles can become more dramatic. Remember to keep your skin moisturized and use the best kind of moisturizer. Exuviance AGE REVERSE HydraFirm is the perfect cream to combat dry skin with its clinically effective ingredients: Hyaluronic Acid, NMF Natural Moisturizing Factor.

A comfort-rich cream replenishes optimal hydration levels and contains a unique combination of multitasking AGE REVERSE ingredients that target the look of aging skin including dehydration, poor texture, and uneven skin tone and wrinkles. Hyaluronic Acid acts as a moisture sponge to quench dryness at the skin’s surface while the NMF Natural Moisturizing Factor formula infuses skin with crucial amino acids and sugars to help restore youthful moisture and make skin less vulnerable to dryness.

Sun Protection

Sunscreen is your friend. Exposure from the sun will change your skin. This change is brought on by the strong rays of the sun; ultraviolet radiation will wreak havoc on your face, aging your skin quite rapidly. If you don’t protect your skin with a moisturizer that contains sunscreen, like my favorite, AGE REVERSE Day Repair SPF 30, your skin will be susceptible to developing fine lines, wrinkles, brown spots, and pigment irregularity. And, unfortunately, broken capillaries and red blotches are a problem as well.  Safeguard your skin with an excellent sunscreen and/or sunscreen + moisturizer and don’t forget to don a hat and sunnies to further protect your skin.

Hydrated Eyes

Your eyes deserve extra attention and this means no ordinary moisturizer will do the trick to keep the delicate and sensitive area hydrated. The skin around your eyes is very thin. This area also has reduced blood flow. When you begin to age, the first place it surfaces is in the lines around your eyes. Keep your eyes looking fresh and hydrated with an eye cream specifically designed for that area of your face. This area responds differently.

To get youthful-looking eyes, you will want to grab AGE REVERSE Eye Contour, it is proven to visibly correct all the key signs of aging in the eye area in just 4 weeks.

Nighttime Rituals

Taking care of your skin is around the clock feat. A nightly routine of properly cleansing your face and using a concentrated night cream will work wonders for a fresh face in the morning. Intensify skin’s nighttime rejuvenation cycle with Exuviance brand’s AGE REVERSE Night Lift, a unique multi-tasking formula containing a proprietary complex of state of the art anti-aging ingredients. Now you can target skin’s natural collagen and hydrating support for skin that’s firmer, less lined and undeniably younger looking. You need to take care to nourish your skin while you sleep. This anti-aging night cream will work really hard at undoing the day’s damage.

The triple lifting formula contains Peptides with Alpha and Poly Hydroxy Acids (AHA/PHAs) to help plump and fill skin’s appearance making it look more lifted with reduced appearance of wrinkles.

Special Treatment

It is always nice to give your skin a little something extra special. Proper skin care is so important to the health and beauty of your skin. It is the largest organ of your body so please give it some love. When I find that my skin needs some TLC or little boost after a particularly stressful period or I just need a reboot, I love to use the Performance Peel AP25. This twice-weekly 10-minute experience will leave your skin looking incredibly bright, supple and smooth. I find that the enlarged pores around my forehead and nose are minimized, making me feel more confident without any makeup.


When I do apply my makeup, it glides on smooth because of my even skin texture and surface. It is a high-performance peel that is safe and easy to use at home and is formulated with a 25% blend of Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) and Polyhydroxy Acid (PHA), including Glycolic Acid, Mandelic Acid, and Gluconolactone to reveal an all-over healthy glow.The Ultimate Checklist for Buying Anti-Aging Skincare Products

    Wow such great post with tons of helpful info. I know I’ll be getting some of those products next time I’m able to get to Ulta. Thank you!

    This is a post that I’ll have to share with my wife. She’s always looking for different products for her skin.

  3. January 6, 2020 / 7:57 pm

    What a great range of products and such an informative post. Will be on the lookout for these.

    I love cosmetics and skincare products, so it was very fun to go through this post. Good skincare is so important. I use an exfoliant remover wipe daily, and moisturizing is so important. I’m heading toward 71, and most people are shocked when they find out how old I am. Keep up the good work, girl!

  5. January 7, 2020 / 2:27 am

    all I’ve ever done is wash with water and apply daily moisturizer. I’ve bought so many other products over the years but after a few uses they just get left in the drawer. So I’ve given up. But this industry must be a lucrative money maker.

  6. January 7, 2020 / 6:35 am

    Wow….the human skin never ceases to amaze me! With a little pampering, anybody looks as good as new. You are divine, Debbie! This checklist is going to be good for me in the near future.

  7. January 7, 2020 / 6:46 am

    I absolutely love a good skin care product! I’ll have to check some of these out!

    Looks like a really good skin care brand. I don’t have much of a skin care routine – I just use a face wash and moisturizer. Sometimes I even forget to apply moisturizer if I am too tired or sleepy. I should start paying more attention to skin care. I don’t want to look older than my age.

  9. January 7, 2020 / 9:40 am

    I will add this to my stocking stuffers for next year. Ladies always can use a few skincare products in their purse throughout the day.

  10. January 7, 2020 / 9:45 am

    You look great. This year, I am actively working to take care of my skin. I have been lax in the past. I will have to check this out!

    Skincare is something I definitely need to work on. Even though I shower every day, I need to be better at washing my face in the evening before bed haha. Thanks for your advice and product reviews! 🙂

  12. January 7, 2020 / 11:58 am

    May I ask about your morning/night skincare routine? Your skind looks FAB!

  13. January 7, 2020 / 3:42 pm

    Looks like a great set of skincare products. I hope my best friend sees this. She needs it!
