5 Secrets for Younger Skin
1. Use a bioactive cleanser (not just an exfoliator)
Non-bioactives are NOT enough after you turn 40. Your body just doesn’t turn over skin cells like it used to!
2. Go for natural collagen boosters over synthetic
Synthetic collagen boosters don’t work as well as natural collagen boosters. When you reach for a collagen-boosting facelift serum, remember that you get what you pay for. Most skin serums are actually TOO HEAVY to be absorbed by your skin because of the chemical fillers (often ether or ester) required to stabilize synthetic Hyaluronic Acid (HA).
Try a natural, plant-based Hyaluronic Acid treatment instead.
3. Thin skin around your eyes is actually an advantage!
Your wrinkles may be most prominent around your eyes, but skin thinness here actually lets more skin rejuvenating nutrients and peptides in. Just make sure you’re using the right eye firming peptide formulation.
4. Rebuild your skin with a nutrient-rich hydration cream
Cleanser alone is enough when you’re in your 30s, but after significant collagen loss, you need to rebuild your skin with a nutrient-rich hydration cream (for the best results, use a nutrient-rich hydrator like Timeless Cream after cleansing).
5. Throw away your night cream
Instead, try a blend of beeswax, aloe, shea, and cocoa butter. Most night creams only add a heavy layer of grease instead of providing the nutrients your skin needs for fast cell turnover.
