Hi Shannon, My mom and grandmother did have nice skin so I'd say good genetics are probably half of it but I have really focused on my skin care since my late teens. My hands definitely have age spots. I've had IPL on them to get rid of the spots (although they are back again - sigh). I also try to use my skin care items on my neck when I apply to my face and anything I have leftover on my hands, I smooth onto the tops of my hands. Thanks for watching! -Nicole
Hi Caz, He recommended SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic which I used for years. Now I like the Drunk Elephant C-Firma or if you want a lower cost alternative, there are many good ones on the market that are dupes. I did a video on that too. :) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I9qyy9iMnq4&t=217s
Your schedule makes me tired!!!!
Thanks for the great Retin A tips!!! You must live near me, southern AZ since you know people going to Mexico!! I purchased my Retin A from ReliableRX, takes a long, long time, but the prices are GREAT!!!! You look GREAT for your age, or any age for that matter!!!
Janna Lynn Hi Janna, I actually live in the San Francisco Bay area but it seems like somebody is always going to Mexico LOL. Good to know about ReliableRX in case I need another option. Thanks so much for joining my community. 😃
I see this video is a year old , I just viewed it...I appreciate the great Retin A information, thank you. I wasn't able to find the video about the other product the dermatologist used in addition to Retin A. What is that product and are you using it yourself? 😊
Im 21 and have been using Retin A for almost 2 years now, but because of acne. I started with the 0'25 for most of the time since the 0'5 left my face like an oily mess and didn't liked it, and then a month and a half ago switched to the 0'1 one. It doesnt irritate me that much and I've noticed a big change in my acne (my skin is clear!!!!) and hyperpigmentation. I use the 0'25 for my undereye area and will upgrade slowly (months/years) to higher doses.
Soon I will buy a dermarroller to help hyperpigmentation.
I feel so lucky for starting so young with Retin A, hopefully I look as flawlessly as you with your age.
I recently started off with Retin-A 0.25% with moisturizer. By the fourth night my face was on fire!!!! It could have been from the sunscreen I used. I've heard reports of that. My dermatologist said I just started too much too soon. She told me to start using it on Mondays and Thursdays for 2 weeks, then Monday, Wednesday, Fridays for 2 weeks, then every other night for 2 weeks, then every night (as tolerated)....If you start to have excessive symptoms, dial back to the step you were on before....If sunscreen burns, I was told to use the mineral sunscreen and it would help that. I used a pea size of Retin-A and a pea size of moisturizer....You can use more if you like or use a serum before application of Retin-A...
Hi Raquel. Yes, I stopped 100% while pregnant! I was 28 and 31 when I had my kids so I did not see anything drastic change but my age spots were darker. I did not have a lot of fine lines then so I cannot speak to that. Other than that I use it all the time. My hubby uses it off and on and we can tell on lines with him when he uses it.
I just started using retin A and after 3 applications (once a week) and I haven't seen any skin irritation at all but the irritation is on my eyes, have you noticed dry eyes after you started using retin A? itchy, burning, red eyes?
I'm using currently the same RETIN a from Mexico is the bests thing I've ever found it using 0.5 for my neck and back of my hands and 0.1 all over my face I'm 32 using it for 2yrs and I JUST LOVE IT. Great video thanks !!!!
I'm 33 and just started using 0.025% which is free for me in Canada. Even that low strength has been reeking havoc so far. I've been using it every 3 or 4 days and my skin is so sensitive, dry and sore. It is slowly starting to adapt though. I'm hoping that with starting now I can age gracefully :) I just want to rave about the colour of your room! That is my favourite colour in the world and I love how you've done the doors and everything. That colour with your white headboard is lovely!
So I'm just starting Retin-A right now for anti-aging at nearly 45. I have super thin skin now around the eyes and really want to boost collagen. How long before you think I'd see results? You look AMAZING... a full 20 years younger. If you don't start young like you can you still get great results? If only I'd done this sooner.
ana Mont facial exercises and a good collagen supplement will bring back your volume and skin density...worked for me...now I'm working on fine lines which have decreased by about half but I want better results so I began retin a last week...taking it slow....good luck on your endeavors
Hi Ana, so PhotoFacials basically zap a laser at your skin that damages underneath and promotes collagen which plumps the skin. I have only done them very sporadically but saw a huge result. I really want to do a series of those at some point. I think the retin-a is the biggest thing. Over time it promotes collagen. The C&E protects your skin from free radicals that age you so I think it is super important too. Both are things that you can get at a pretty moderate price too which is nice. If you can afford a photo facial, they are amazing too. Hope that helps!
+Yay or Nay Nicole can you explain those facials? im 29 no signs of aging yet just a lil volume lose in cheeks but no age spots . do you attribute your facial fullness to the vitamin c or retin a or both?
Oh and I forgot to add, one thing that I am a big fan of (and really want to do a series of - but it is expensive) is photo facials with the Sciton laser. I have had a 3 of those over the last 7 years and the results are phenomenal and supposedly even better if you do it 3 times just 6 weeks apart. Dark spots go away and then you get the new plumpness to your skin. No real down time either.
Hi Ana, No fillers yet although if I need them that is certainly something that I would not hesitate to do (after finding the right doctor to go to). I also think that 20 years of using a C&E Ferulic serum each morning (I have a video on that) as well as religiously taking off my makeup every night, using the tretinoin, moisturizing like crazy and avoiding the sun when possible along with good genes are what have kept my skin in good shape. Happy Friday!!!
Thanks for you Video Nicole. I've been using Tretinoin for about a month. I've not had any skin reaction to the product ever? I was wondering if this is normal, as most of the vids I've watched, seem to indicate otherwise. Also can one derma roll whilst using this? I've also managed to get this product pretty cheaply without a prescription, made by Johnson. I'm abroad. xx
+Juliette Lee you can try ebay the name is Vitacid (pure retinoic acid 0.05% on cream tube netto 20g) it is from Indonesia costs around $3ish.
I saw a YouTuber said she ordered it there. hope it helps
I'm from Indonesia myself and I just started using it for a week now and it works magic. It works best when you never skip a sunscreen as it helps you to avoid redness and irritation. I have none of those obstacles since I started using sunscreen/sunblock. but when I didn't use any sun protection, my face is red and itchy.
You can NOT buy retin-A products over the counter, as you stated in this video. Retin-A is a PRESCRIPTION ONLY product. A derivative of retin-A, which is RETINOL, is available over the counter in drug stores and makeup counters.
I tried that yesterday...when I went to pay for it, it told me to upload the script or fax it in 😔 it even ask for the name of the doctor so I don't know how people can get it without a script. Unless you know something?
Technically, thats providing Retin-A with a prescription because even the on-line physician is writing a prescription for the online buyer or they wouldn't have permission to sell it. There are a couple of countries that I know of, Mexico and Spain, that can provide it without a prescription. I will be getting my next tube in Spain.
+Chessa Barron He Chessa, Thanks so much. I don't think it is ever too late. My hubby tried it for a few months (then lost interest and stopped) and I swear it took 5 years off while he was on it. IPL or photofacials are also a great thing. I've had one every couple of years for a total of about 3 times on my face. I'd love to do it again soon. It has been a while. Thanks so much for subscribing! xoxoxo -Nicole
+Yasmin Adam When I start to get the "elevens" on my forehead like my mom eventually got I plan to try the non-surgical stuff but really, the tretinoin cream over these years does a ton. Seriously when my hubby tried it for a few months we saw huge improvement on him. Also, I did inherit good skin from my mom and grandmother so I'm starting with a good base but I've now been using it for over 20 years and I really think that the tretinoin cream really is the biggest part of why my skin stays youthful. Thanks for watching! :)
Thanks for the info. Wish I had seen it before. Went to Mexico last two years but going to Cuba instead this year. Luckily my best friend is going so I can get her to pick it out. Great video as usual ☺️
Hi Nicole, so happy i found you on youtube, you have such a sweet personality! I agree with Mellisa, in that i love and have interests in most of your unboxings, to your beauty secrets to the complete different aspect of cooking/baking. Im 53 and still feel like i can learn alot from you. ❤️ Renee Adams Seifert ( a Pittsburgh Girl)
+Renee Seifert HI Renee, I am so glad you are here and you like my content =)!!! Makes my day! I think we all can learn every day don't you? Makes life more fun and exciting! I have never been to PA. I used to travel a ton for work but never made it there. Hope to eventually. xoxoxox
I have dry and sensitive skin. I do use retinA but I peel, A LOT!!!! I would suggest starting at the 0.025% and working ur way up slowly. If u have never used it watch Angie from HotAndFlashy channel. She did a whole video on getting started with RetinA products. U can really burn ur skin if u are not careful. I went up to 1% but went back down to 0.5% and I don't us it every day. I have a lot of hyper-pigmentation so that is why my dermatologist started me on it. It does help a lot but sun screen EVERY DAY is a must or ur spots come right back! (I call them my cheetah spots : -) Wish I know someone that goes to Mexico. But really a tube lasts a really long time.
+felinekj I totally agree with what you say! I have to check out HotAndFlashy again. I have not been there in a while. Don't you love her user name? Amazing how those spots come back isn't it. I've had IPL/Photofacial before and that is great too. Hope you are having a great weekend!!!
I am a new runner, too! I started last July and did the same as you only with light poles! I am starting again, too. We remodeled the house and then my son got sick again so I was only running a couple times per week. I'm trying to get back to where I was and lose the weight gain from these past few months. We have our son's wedding in two months! Thanks for another terrific video! See you in the next one! It's November so I can now say, Happy Thanksgiving!
+Favor Fenwick Light poles, that is good too but that would have been too far apart for me when I started LOL! It is so difficult to keep up with exercise especially with a sick kid. I hope that your son is doing well now. Wow! A wedding. How exciting!!! What color is your dress??? Is it getting crazy with the planning or is that mainly falling on the bride? Glad you liked the video =). Happy Thanksgiving to you too. It is not at my house this year so it will be a relaxing one. Yippee!!!
I've gotten 2 tubes of Retin A Micro .08% for free from my derm! It's geared towards acne, but it's the same active ingredient, so it works for fine lines and wrinkles, too :). I've been using it for a few months now, went up to every day, and noticed my hair falling out! I went down to 3x a week and the hair loss has slowed a lot, thank goodness.
Retin A is so great!
+Lindsey Zal (The Accidental Wallflower) Wow Lindsay, hair loss! I did not know that is a side effect. Glad it slowed down! One of my cousins just started it for adult onset acne and gets it for a $5 copay. Hope you are having a nice week! :)
+Lindsey Zal (The Accidental Wallflower) Interesting, I've been on 0.04% Micro for 9 months and I also noticed my hair loss, but I didn't connect the two. I've got uber thick hair, so I didn't think I would miss it. xoxo C
+Lindsey Zal (The Accidental Wallflower) Hair loss? Wow, I didn't know that was a side effect! I'm going to look into this further for sure. Been using RetinA for years off and on. I do have hair loss but thought it was due to my age. Hmmm??
I have been thinking of going on Retin-A, I have never used it but I think it is time I started! I need to find someone going to Mexico! You are looking gorgeous as always and your skin is fabulous! I hope you are having a great Halloween and weekend! Love and Hugs! XOXO
+Erin K. Hi Erin, I am all ready to film part 2. and hope to have it up soon. Our house is torn up right now as we are restaining every cabinet in the house so it has been a bit crazy. Hope you are having a wonderful weekend! <3
Hi Nicole, I totally agree with you, I have been using 1% Retin A for years now and I use it every night, it certainly has diminished the signs of aging. Thanks for sharing and I hope you are having a fabulous weekend. Hugs, Nathalie xoxo
I'm sorry, it isn't "understood" by me. I'm a pharmacist. That's a legal issue to me. I've never ONCE had a physician write a RX that I was supposed to understand to be correct!!
Love your videos! Thank you for posting this great tip - I feel like many beauty YouTubers (who are all so young!) don't address the issue of fine lines and wrinkles! I'm in my late 30s and am beginning to notice skin changes. :( Now I'm trying to take better care of my skin.
Also, I just adore your unboxing videos and your cooking/baking videos!! When will you do more?? Keep up the great work!
+Mellisa Klock Hi Mellisa, You so made my day! I am so glad that you are enjoying my videos! I actually have shot several more (unboxings, cookies and more) , it just takes a long time to edit so that is my big hold up. I just need a couple more hours in each day :). I agree that there is so much on makeup etc but not enough on skin care. I love makeup but I am just as into skincare so I plan to do more on that in the near future. Have a wonderful Halloween!!!

Adicta al sexo anal, Mónica regresa para que LE ROMPAN EL CULO otra vez. 2 coños, 3 pollas y litros de lefa.
Tenemos un nuevo Cita a ciegas, en esta ocasion bastante peculiar ya que ahora serán 2 chicas y 3 chicos los que participan, aunque solo dos terminaran follando. Angelina vino hace poco dispuesta a convertirse en actriz porno y su belleza y cuerpo peculiar nos hacen pensar que conseguirá su propósito. La otra chica es Monica Smiller y su culazo tragón, esta chica lleva camino de convertirse en patrimonio de FAKings, tal como estamos viendo ultimamente. Y como chicos tenemos a tres pichones locos por follar con alguna de nuestras chicas. Ellos han decidido que Mónica sea la ganadora, Mónica ha decidido que Filipe sea el afortunado y quien romperá de nuevo su culo en una escena donde nuestra chica nos demostrara que no tiene limites para nada. Y es que amigos de
FAKings, en la garganta profunda de esta morenaza andaluza se pierden las pollas mas gigantes y su culo traga hasta tal extremo que cualquier día le vamos a proponer una doble penetración anal. al tiempo ;)
Me voy de dogging con mi mujer. Esta loca por inflarse a pollas. Se llama Sugar Bitch, ¿Adivinas por qué?
Que pasa chicos de FAKings, mi novia se llama Sugar Bitch y pronto al ver el vídeo adivinareis por que. El caso es que a mi preciosa chica le encantan las pollas , cuantas mas mejor, y yo que presumo de ser un cornudo consentido , siempre me vuelvo loco y me pierdo por complacerla . No nos engañemos, creo que me pone mas a mi el ver como la follan que a ella disfrutar con rabos ajenos. Sea como sea, nuestros escarceos por locales liberales y sitios donde acostumbran a ir parejas a follar y chicos a pajearse mientras las ven, es habitual . Para grabar este vídeo nos hemos ido al rio en una zona en Sevilla donde acostumbra a pasar lo que os he comentado. Las parejas hacen dogging, las chicas a solas hacen cruising y los cornudos como yo, llamamos a todos los que están mirando para invitar a follar con nuestra zorrilla . Hemos tenido bastante suerte ya que hasta tres chicos han terminado follando con ella y los tres se han corrido en su cuerpo, eso a ella le encanta, a la muy zorra le gusta que su cuerpo huela a semen . Yo ya os lo he dicho, como loco por complacerla. A ver si os gusta el vídeo y lo publicáis, prometemos enviar mas.
