Anti Aging Skincare Routine For Women Over 50 | AM & PM Explained!

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
