Dr Oz did a segment with Paula Begoun the Cosmetics Cop to give us a list of Anti-Aging Products that we must use on our skin. Doctor Oz knows that as we get into our 30’s, 40’s and 50’s, we start buying tons of products. Here are the details of Dr Oz’s Segment called “Did That? Try This For Aging Skin!”
Dr Oz & Paula Begoun: Moisturizer with SPF – Anti-Aging in 30’s
Dr Oz’s helper was in her 30’s and said that she first washes her face with a foaming scrub, then uses a toner, then moisturizes differently depending on the season – and it sounded like she had a whole laundry list of other items she would have included on this list had she not be stopped. Dr Oz said that her whole table of products that she uses costs over $700 and Paula Begoun said that over a year, she probably is spending between $2000 and $4000 on beauty products that are not helping her skin. Begoun said that all you need is one daytime moisturizer with a SPF and one night moisturizer without spf. If you have oily skin, get a gel form of moisturizer and if you have normal to dry skin, stick to a lotion or cream. Ignore all of the serums, firming, upping, downing, and every other adjective that the beauty industry uses to trick us into buying their products.
Dr Oz & Paula Begoun: Milk of Magnesia Face Mask – Anti-Aging in 40’s
Dr Oz’s next guest was in her 40’s and said that she has combination skin and does a face mask at least once a week. She loves clay masks because they absorb the oil (and I must admit that I absolutely love clay masks – you can read a review of my favorite one here: Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay Face Mask.) But Paula Begoun said that her favorite this is to use Milk of Magnesia for oily skin, because it can absorb even more oil than clay because of the Magnesium Hydroxide found in the Milk of Magnesia.

Dr Oz & Paula Begoun: Age is Not a Skin Type – Anti-Aging in 50’s
Dr Oz’s final guest was a lady in her 50’s who said that she hates her dark undereye circles, crow feet, smile lines and sagging face so she has been purchasing all kinds of anti-sagging and anti-wrinkle creams. Paula Begoun said that we must change our thinking, because age is not a skin type. The cosmetics industry has convinced us that our skin has changed, but skin types (oily, dry or combination) are still your skin types in your 50’s and 60’s! Buy skin care products that work for your skin type, and do not buy them based on your age. What works at 30 also works at 50.
