Anti-Aging Cream: A Guide to Get Youthful Skin

Unfortunately, people develop wrinkles early these days as a result of bad eating habits. Today’s foods are grown and processed with chemicals that later affect our skin negatively. As early as 30-40 years, people start developing wrinkles. Also, the scorching rays of the sun have a hand in damaging the skin. But how do you improve an already damaged skin? Anti aging cream will give you a new and youthful look. 

However, you must get your anti-aging cream from a reliable manufacturer as the market has lots of counterfeit anti-aging products.  Besides, the effectiveness of cream depends on the ingredients involved. The products must be subjected to scientific research to determine their effectiveness. Let’s look at the essential elements present in anti-aging creams. 

List of Common Anti-Aging Creams Ingredients 

Did you know that moisturizers help improve your skin’s appearance?  They plump the skin temporarily, concealing the wrinkles. Moisturizers are such things as serums from water, gels, creams, oils, and lotions.

Actually, anti-aging creams are moisturizers that contain active ingredients with multiple skin benefits. The components included are meant to improve the fine lines and wrinkles, texture, and skin tone. Provided you find the best anti-aging cream with quality ingredients, and you’ll see a significant change in your skin. Below are the typical ingredients you’ll find in wrinkle creams; They include;

Retinoids; this is the term used to describe Vitamin A compounds like retinoic acid and retinol. Note that these ingredients have been used for centuries to help improve damaged/ wrinkled skin.

Vitamin C (ascorbic acid); this one is an excellent antioxidant. It’s known to protect the skin against free radicals. The latter are unstable oxygen molecules know to destroy skin cells, thereby causing wrinkles. Vitamin C protects the skin against the damage caused by the sun. Also, it helps in reducing wrinkles and fine lines. This is why wrinkle creams with Vitamin C should be stored well to protect them from sunlight and the air.

Coenzyme Q10; this is a vital element as it helps curb wrinkles the develop around the eyes. Furthermore, it guards the skin against the sun’s rays.

Hydroxy acids, AHAs, or Alpha hydroxyl acids are lactic acid, citric acid, and glycolic acids. They help eliminate dead skin cells. Regular use of AHAs enhances the growth of smoother and pigmented skin.

Peptides; there are the molecules that develop simultaneously in living organisms. Some peptides encourage collagen production, which then prevents wrinkling by improving skin texture.

Tea extracts; Oolong, black and green tea have compounds with anti-inflammatory and antioxidants properties. This is why some wrinkle creams use extracts from green tea.

Niacinamide; this is an excellent antioxidant. It’s linked to Vitamin B-3. It reduces the loss of water in your skin, thereby improving skin elasticity.

Whip Your Skin Into Shape in 2018! @Olay #ad @Albertsons #winterskinproblems #feelthewhip

Does your skin get dry in the winter? Of course it does. It’s winter. Try living out here in the Arizona desert. After Christmas we Phoenicians look less like goddesses and more like a vintage handbag. Seriously– after a full winter of this dryness, my face feels rougher than a Piers Morgan interview with Tonya Harding. (zzzzing!)

Even if you don’t live in drier climates, winter has some surprising negative effects on skin. Our skin starts to feel the
effects of cold weather when temperatures
drop below 53.6 degrees Fahrenheit. And perhaps most surprisingly, central heating can reduce air humidity levels to the same moisture content as the Sahara Desert (that’s a relative humidity of just 20-25%). So the problem isn’t necessarily the cold weather, but what we have to do to deal with it.  Continue reading “Whip Your Skin Into Shape in 2018! @Olay #ad @Albertsons #winterskinproblems #feelthewhip” »

How I’m never getting older – or poorer. #Olay #ad #Ageless



Quantcast


#Olay #ad #Ageless  Youthfulness will always be in style, but I feel like lately it’s had even more of a resurgence. Just look at our recent music: the Chainsmokers bravely proclaim “we ain’t never getting older”, Troye Sivan’s aptly named “Youth” notes “we’ve no time for getting old”… are we in denial, or is this goal of permanent youth actually *gasp* achievable?

“Sure,” many of you smirk, “with the right surgeon.” Reality TV alone is proof that a youthful appearance can be bought, but the price tag is no joke. Or is it? Can we reverse the hands of time without taking out a home equity line of credit to foot the bill on poisonous injectables, irreversible surgical procedures or celeb-endorsed $300 ointments made of only the finest free-range bald eagle spit?

The answer is yes. Ladies, welcome to the future. Gone are the days when we had to step beyond the drugstore doors and shell out makeup-counter dollars to get a decent quality skincare product. It’s 2017,  and youth is now within your budget.

But don’t those pricey products work better? That’s what the snobby counter girl WANTS you to think, but the only real added benefits go on her commission check. Consider this: Good Housekeeping Institute did a study on 10 top prestige beauty creams (including one with a $440 price tag), and drugstore powerhouse Olay’s Regenerist Micro-sculpting Cream outperformed them ALL. Say what? Continue reading “How I’m never getting older – or poorer. #Olay #ad #Ageless” »





Why French Women Have Great Skin

French women have many enviable qualities. First, there’s that effortless chic-and-sexy they pull off – HOW? Then there’s the well-known fact that they seem to stay slim despite a diet consisting of 90% buttered croissants and Beaujolais Nouveau. What gives?

Even more disgustingly, they stay lovely and young-looking for ages. Maybe the French philosophy behind their skincare is to credit for this; French women have famously indulged their skin in luxurious products and treated it like handsewn lace for centuries.

Aixallia is one such example of why: it’s a new French organic skincare and cleansing brand made with proprietary ultra-pure water to eliminate all impurities. Only the French would think to worry about what water went into it! Continue reading “Why French Women Have Great Skin” »
