Whatever your opinion may be on plastic surgery, I think we can all agree that a little toning and tightening is on all our minds. Deciding to go the surgery route can mean serious medical risks, high costs, and let’s not even think about ending up with a botched job! Even going the less extreme injectables route has its risks, not to mention it could cost as much buying yourself a whole new wardrobe! Wouldn’t we love that.
Lucky for us, there have been serious advancements in skincare over the years that can help us achieve the results we want – without going under the knife. New products, with proven effective ingredients may not be as instant as surgery, but when used consistently they can do wonders.
Here are our top three ingredients to lift, tone and sculpt your skin at home!
Skincare experts around the world consider vitamin C an anti-aging superstar, both for prevention and correction purposes. Vitamin C has strong antioxidant properties that play an important role in collagen synthesis; the process that keeps our skin looking firm and toned. Without sufficient vitamin C, skin can start to sag and take on a dull, drab look. No thank-you!
Vitamin C protects our skin from damage caused by free radicals and UV sun exposure, both of which accelerate the aging process. With the right formulation, topical vitamin C helps to defend the skin from environmental stressors, create visibly firmer skin, and even out discoloration and dark spots.
Vitamin E has been shown to help enhance the efficacy of vitamin C which is why we added it to our Even Glow Serum with 20% Vitamin C. Together they form a must-have serum that refreshes, renews, and creates firmer more youthful looking skin.
Considered a premier hydrating ingredient for all skin types – yes, even oily and breakout-prone skin types benefit from this amazing antioxidant. Hyaluronic acid has the renowned ability to replenish skin’s moisture because it can hold up to 1000 times it’s weight in water. Can you say mind-blowing!
As we age, our skin loses the ability to maintain a balanced level of water, meaning we lose that plump fresh look to our complexion. Hyaluronic acid helps us out by enhancing moisture content, and revitalizing our skin for a softer and more luminous look. As it plumps our skin with moisture, this helps fill in fine lines and wrinkles giving an instantly smoother look to our complexion.
The best way to add hyaluronic acid to your skincare routine is through a moisturizer. Our Pure Glow Brightening Moisturizer is an excellent option for all skin types. It’s not too heavy, never greasy, and has the perfect hydration balance to nourish your skin. Tired and dull looking skin is restored to unveil a healthier, more vibrant glow!
There are some trendy ingredients in skincare that maybe shouldn’t be, but retinol is definitely not one of them. Retinol is a derivative of vitamin A, and is extremely effective at diminishing the visible signs of aging. Years of scientific research back-up retinol, demonstrating its ability to visibly decrease the appearance of fine lines and deep wrinkles, improve uneven skin tone, resurface skin tone, minimize the appearance of pores, and even help manage breakouts. Wow!
Studies demonstrate retinols ability to work at the cellular level, meaning that retinol not only makes your skin look younger but also act younger. Today it’s easy to work retinol into your nighttime skincare routine topically through a serum or cream. But, there are a few things to be aware of before using a retinol.
1. Retinol can make skin more sensitive to the sun. So make sure to only use your retinol at night and use a day time moisturizer or makeup with SPF.
2. If you’re a retinol newbie, start slow. Start by using retinol every 3 days, once your skin accepts that well (1-2 weeks), you can more to every 2 nights, and then every night if you choose.
3. Don’t buy retinol in a clear container. Once retinol is exposed to light, it starts to break down. Only buy a retinol packaged in an opaque or amber bottle that diminishes sunlight.
If you’re interested in trying a retinol we offer both a serum and a cream. We recommend a serum for those with a more oily to normal skin type, and a cream for those with drier or more sensitive skin. If you’re aged 55+ combine them to enhance the benefits of retinol by layering skincare.
Creating the best skin of your life is possible without the risk and expense of plastic surgery. With a range of advanced skincare, using quality ingredients proven to fight the signs of aging, you can give your skin everything it needs to look healthy, renewed, and refreshed.
