Anti-aging products have been around for centuries - from medicinal skin-saving herbs in China to Cleopatra's honey and milk baths in ancient Egypt. But these days, it's easy to get a little complacent with the anti-aging products in your routine, no thanks to the slew of bland and boring creams on the market. Yep. We called it. Anti-aging prods aren't always fun; no wondering people are turning their backs on them when it's so much more fun buying a new foundation or pretty lip balm!
But anti-agers are fighting back and becoming a whole lot more fun and interesting to integrate into your beauty routine. Welcome to the 'young' or new anti-agers you need to know about - no matter your age, there's one for you...
The ANTI AGING MAKEUP
Yep. This is a thing now. And about time! Why not make the most of every part of you beauty routine to help stop the clock? The L'Oreal NutriLift Gold Anti-aging Serum foundation does just that. It contains 5 active anti-ageing ingredients and 30% nourishing oils for a 2-in-1 makeup and skincare/serum base. Oh, and it even includes gold.
Now, metals might sound like an odd skincare inclusion, but there benefits are been proven across the 'health' board. Magnesium, for example, supports a healthy immune system, while zinc and copper influence metabolism. Gold is said to detoxify, firm and revitalie the skin, while reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and returning flexibility to the skin.
The ANTI AGING MASK
Add a bit of fun to your anti-aging eye care, also thanks to gold, with the Lovitalite 24K Active Gold Yulan Eye Mask. It’s highly moisturising and nourishing, designed to smooth out wrinkles, and hydrate the skin. It all works via the promotion of the micro circulation around the eyes, which also means it can relieve pesky symptoms of allergies such as puffy eyes, inflammation and irritation (take that Hayfever!). Oh, and they come as a 5 pack, so you can ration them out every few weeks.
The ANTI AGING BODY CARE
Don't focuss all your attention on your face when it comes to anti-aging. It only makes up around 10% of the skin on your body after all. And dedicating 100% of your clock-haulting efforts on it just isn't good math. Show your body the same kind of love as you would for your face with Vaseline Ultimate 10, the first anti-ageing body lotion from Vaseline. One pump grants you reduced wrinkles, hydrated skin, reduced dark marks, and a more refined skin texture, thanks to AHA, pro-retinol and vitamin B3.
The ANTI AGING LIP CARE
Lip balm is a must, but it's only one part of your potential lip care. If you won't be without your face serum, snap one up for your lips too; this is one part of your face that'll show aging the most and fast. And no one wants wrinkled lips. Especially not lipstick or gloss lovers. The Sugar and Butter Beauty Intensive Hydrating Lip Serum is formulated with 8 types of pure oils, including organic Argan oil, to nourish lips. Perfect to apply right before bed for a plump and flake free kisser come morning.
The STEM CELL SKINCARE
Stem cells are big in beauty thanks to their ability to help regenerate any type of cell in the body. And skin cells make up a HUGE percentage of your bod, and a big part of your beauty routine, naturally. The Stem Cell Skin Science Lifeline Skin Care Eye Firming Complexis a great product to start off with when thinking stem cells. Lifeline Skin Care extracts the peptides, enzymes and growth factors from stem cells - in other words, the protiens from them - and replicates them for use in their products. These stem cell extracts (HSC-x) help to motivate collagen production in our skin. The result is a tighter, firmer and brightened skin with reduced puffiness - perfect for use around the eyes.
