Last month, I turned 48 years old, and my 40’s have been all about “reverse aging”. Many tell me I don’t look my age, and I really think it has a lot to do with my skincare regimen. I have used and learned so much about skincare over my 30 year career and have found some truly revolutionary products. Many ask what I use, and it honestly changes based on the seasons and what I feel my skin needs at the time. On my birthday I shared my current reverse aging morning skincare regimen, and since then I have been asked about my nighttime regimen which is just as important.
My Nighttime Regimen
In this video, I show how I use each product. I sped it up so I could get it all in, but you can get the gist 😉
@leighraeder ✨After my reverse aging morning skincare routine @Beauty Expert Leigh Raeder some of you wanted to know my nighttime regimen. This is my current regimen. Of course it changes depending on the seasons and what my skin needs.

You’ll notice that some items are the same as what I use in the morning, but I do incorporate some different products during the night that help repair my skin. I also I mix and match brands, however they are all from the same company and work well together. This allows me to choose products based on the results I’m looking for. Here’s a bit more about each product that I used. And if you want to try it, you can click on the picture!
Cleansing is a vital part of your skin care regimen in order to purify, refresh and maintain a healthy-looking complexion. Cellular Laboratories De-Aging Facial Cleanser is a botanical-infused, foaming cleanser that gently cleanses the skin without stripping it. This versatile, anti-aging formula leaves the skin nourished and hydrated to promote a healthy, vibrant and youthful-looking complexion. The perfect blend of ingredients helps to boost the skin’s moisture retention as it gently dissolves makeup and impurities.
Proper pH balance is essential for your skin to perform its primary function as a barrier. Under normal conditions, the surface of human skin is acidic with a pH ~5. This low pH value is maintained in several different ways including through the production of free fatty acids during cell maturation and secretion of fatty acids and lactic acid in sweat. This acidic pH helps to protect the skin and to maintain the skin’s natural barrier function. Skintelligence pH Skin Normalizer assists your skin in maintaining a normal pH level and promotes your skin’s natural ability to resist the effects of pollution and other environmental conditions.
Formulated and pH-balanced with botanical extracts, Skintelligence pH Skin Normalizer promotes clean, smooth, balanced and moisturized skin. This alcohol-free formula exfoliates dead skin cells and removes traces of dirt, makeup and other impurities which clog pores. Additionally, Skintelligence pH Skin Normalizer supports elasticity and an even skin tone.

It’s important to use an eye cream BEFORE applying your retinol.
It is important to apply Retinol to completely dry skin. This step will help to eliminate irritation.
Take a pea-size amount of your retinol and, starting at your chin, apply with your fingertips in upward and outward motions.

Retinols are a more intensive anti-aging treatment, so I recommend trying on a small area before using the full treatment. Also, I do not recommend if you have experienced irritation from retinol products in the past. This product does take time for your skin to adapt and you may experience some amount of irritation, mild redness, a warm tingling when you first start using the product. However, The Lumière de Vie Retinol Crème uses a delivery system known as Poly-Pore 120 RE. This system is designed to provide sustained release of retinol in order to help reduce irritation. Therefore I find most have less irritation as with normal retinol products.
Retinol may increase photosensitivity; therefore, I always recommend using a high-protection, broad-spectrum sunscreen. Also, due to the accelerated cell turnover, it is recommended to stop using retinol several days prior to any waxing appointments as the superficial layer of the skin will be revealing newer skin cells.
The winter months are a great time to work on any hyperpigmentation s
