Over 40 Skin Concerns
Morning Skincare Routine
It’s obviously important to keep our skin clean to prevent breakouts (life really isn’t fair fighting wrinkles and pimples!), but we don’t want to strip our face of its natural oils or you’ll end up overproducing those oils!
Here’s how I clean my face:
Splash with Water – On days I wake up early to work out, I only brush my teeth and splash my face with cold water to refresh my skin and help me wake up. I wait until I’m home from my workout to cleanse my face. Otherwise, I feel like I’d need to wash again after the workout and that would be too much too close together.
Age Renewal Super Serum is made for those of us concerned about the effects of getting older: texture, dehydration, elasticity, fine lines, radiance, and tone. #raiseshand If I even open my sunroof on a sunny day and enjoy the sun on my face for 15 minutes, I swear, in two days I’ll have more dark spots on my face. This product helps reduce those photo aging affects. I’ve noticed this on my own face! I love the light blue color and pretty bottle, but that’s not why I love it, it’s just a bonus that the products look good sitting on my bathroom counter!
To Use: After cleansing, gently massage several drops of Age Renewal Super Serum onto face, neck, and décolleté. It can can be used morning and evening.
Complete Eye Cream – I’ve definitely noticed those not-so-funny laugh lines at my eyes. I tell myself to be happy about them because it’s a sign I’m a smiler! But, this eye cream seems to be smoothing mine out because they aren’t as noticeable anymore.
To Use: Apply Complete Eye Cream with your ring finger around eye area using a gentle patting motion. Use morning and evening for optimal results.
Vitamin C treatment – Many years ago, I remember hearing Dr. Oz say how important vitamin C was to our skin regimin to help fight against sun damage. I always wanted to try it and wasn’t sure if I needed a prescription or what. Then, I kind of forgot about it until I saw the CR Vitamin C Treatment Complex. I do have those dark spots I mentioned (hyper pigmentation) and this Vitamin C helps lighten those spots.
To Use: Gently massage an even layer of Vitamin C Treatment Complex over your face and neck.
Sheer Renewal Cream– So, you remember I said I used to never use a moisturizer. Well, my skin had had it! I needed it, but probably only on part of my face that was drier. So, I started very cautiously applying this Sheer Renewal Cream as a moisturizer and also to help minimize fine lines, but then I realized how good my skin would look after I applied it! Almost like a base, I guess you’d call it a ‘primer’ for your makeup!
To Use: Just apply Sheer Renewal Cream to your face, neck and décolleté with your fingertips.
Extreme Recovery Cream – When I was in Colorado my skin got so dehydrated! There’s no humidity there like we’re used to in Houston. For times like that, or when I can tell I need an extra boost of moisturizer, I use this extreme recovery cream. No one is as surprised as me about how well my skin tolerates these moisturizers. It’s probably saying, ‘finally she’s giving us some moisture!!’ The Extreme Recovery Cream is creamy and goes on light. It immediately soaks into my skin and doesn’t leave it greasy or oily. I also like how there’s no taste to it- I apply it on my lips and hands too! Again, with all of these products, a little goes a long way! And it doesn’t take long for you to notice the effects. I bet people will start complimenting you on how good you look, but not really know what the difference is!
To Use: Gently massage into your clean face and neck.
If YOU DON’T KNOW WHERE TO START
You might be like I was originally and have no idea where to start. Until last year, I only used drugstore cleanser to clean my face and nothing else! I was lucky to meet the Colleen Rothschild team at a blog conference and get to discuss my skincare concerns and get personalized recommendations, so that helped a ton!
But, lucky YOU, Colleen has her personal recommendations online with her recommended routines. That’s a great places to start, but you can also search by your own specific skin concerns (blemishes; fine lines/wrinkles; uneven skin tone; pores; dehydration).
MY personal recommendation would be to start with the Discovery Collection. The Discovery Collection is a 7-piece kit that is the best way to get you familiar with the best selling Colleen Rothschild products, including my favorite Radiant Cleansing Balm. It also saves you $55 off the normal price.

It seems like every time you turn around somebody is talking about Colleen Rothschild beauty products, from young girls in their 20s to women much older. I’m glad to see young girls taking care of their skin because it’s never too early to start! And those of us with more ‘mature’ skin, we have different issues to be concerned about.
I have to admit, using the Colleen Rothschild skincare line feels very luxurious and self-indulgent! I guess that’s why I was stingy with the Radiant Cleansing Balm! I consider it an investment in my skin, but totally worth it! My whole mantra for my blog is ‘take care of you’ and our skin care should be right up with diet and exercise at the top of the list!
Because her products or so pampering and high-quality, they would be a thoughtful gift to give to your mom or best friend for Mother’s Day. Especially the radiant cleansing balm, she will love that!
