The greatest factor for me in choosing a moisturizer is how much the product sounds like it’ll actually do something. If there’s one thing M Lab Anti-Aging Treatment Cream delivers, it’s the promise of some kind of effect.
The cream is quite thick and a little gooey, but the scent is light, natural and fresh. Its initial feeling is a bit sticky, but it absorbs quickly. It creates a protective membrane that, once absorbed, is utterly weightless- yet effectively protects skin from environmental evildoers. Check out the multitude of clinically active ingredients it includes:
Skincare marketing is usually dictated by a classic dichotomy: all-natural gentle organic healing vs. all-scientific new-technology active ingredient hammering. Juice Beauty’s Anti-Oxidant Serum hits the middle mark by boasting all-natural ingredients while still including the scientific goodies we love, like liposomes, peptides and collagen-rebuilding. So does it work? I bought it just so I could tell you. Aren’t I a sweetheart? (Juice Beauty also happens to be my all-time favorite skincare brand… so it may have been a teensy bit selfish. Don’t judge me.)
The skin’s major structural protein that is responsible for its strength and durability and occupies 75% of its space is called collagen. You might have heard the name used often in relation to skincare products, and you might have heard how useful this fibrous protein is to keep the skin looking young, elastic, plump, and how its reduction in time causes the appearance of wrinkles and lines. Natural aging processes in fact make collagen production rarer, which apart from other health problems that come with aging, affect the skin by making it lose vitality, moisture and smoothness even.
Collagen Peptide is a usable form of collagen for the skin, or just collagen hydrolyzed, and it contains ten times the amount of the amino acids such as proline, glycine, and hydroxyproline than found in other proteins. Collagen and elastin combine to create collagen peptide bundles that cause the firmness of the skin. Loss of collagen peptide directly causes the loss of firmness in the skin, which plummets and sinks in, and eventually forms wrinkles and lines.
