The skin is our body’s largest organ. It protects us from the outside world, so it’s important that we care for it. When it comes to prestige anti-aging skincare, remember to choose effective and safe solutions that deliver visible results. Here are some things to consider as you do a little research on those products…
Find one that cleans and hydrates without stripping the skin of its natural oils. Remember, it’s not good for your skin to feel “squeaky-clean” because that means you removed that acid mantle that will fight off bacteria! Maybe find one that even removes eye makeup and lipstick! I know of a few great cleansers that do just that! It is really important to wash your face, especially at night, because that’s when our skin cells regenerate. Studies have shown that every night you go to bed without washing your face, your skin ages 7 days. 7 DAYS! Sit on that one for a second.
You’ll want a toner that is packed with nutrients to visibly firm and tone the skin WHILE minimizing your pores and correcting your PH. This is your 5-second spa moment! Make sure it feels amazing! This one has it all!
The purpose of the serum is to promote cell turnover. You want to ensure there are clinical results of it visibly lifting and firming the skin, as well as reducing age spots, sunspots and acne scarring. As we age, cell turnover slows down, and that’s when we lose that youthful glow to our skin. This serum gives me that glow back by sloughing off the dead skin cells.
Find an eye cream that supports collagen around the eye area, so it reduces puffiness, dark circles, fine lines and wrinkles. It should moisturize, protect and repairsthe delicate tissue around the eyes. And yes…You need something that is specifically formulated for the eye area. Here’s a great option.
Our skin is in two totally different environments when we are out and about and when we are asleep at night. When we are out and about, we need protection. When we are asleep at night, we need repair and nourishment. Find a day cream that PROTECTS! We expose our skin to the sun, wind and pollutants during the day, and we need something to protect it from those! Find a great moisturizer that doesn’t use mineral oil. Mineral oil clogs pores. And make sure it supports collagen and restores your skin’s youthful appearance, while hydrating, nourishing and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Night repair creams are SO important! That’s our CORRECTOR. It’s FOOD for the skin. At night, when our metabolism slows down, our skin cells need to recover. If they have no food, they have nothing to work with and that causes the skin to age! Here’s one that encourages cell recovery while you sleep!
Did you know the natural aging process is only responsible for 10% of the damage to our skin? The sun and skin care products we use are responsible for 90% of the damage to our skin. When choosing products, it’s important to choose products that are designed to PREVENT and REPAIR problems such as sun damage, wrinkles, fine lines and age spots.
And wouldn’t it be great if your products were are without:
- Petroletum? (which is in most moisturizers on the market)
- Animal products or by-products?
- Formaldehyde-donating preservatives?
- Chemical dyes and fragrances?
- Artificial sweeteners, colors, flavors, and Parabens?
People are looking for that, and not very many companies can make these claims!
