So, we’ve tried everything: creams, serums, and sunscreens expecting immediate results. this reminds me of this funny cream name, “Hope in a bottle,”- and yes, it’s hope and great expectations we have, too great probably, once we realize we are starting to show those inevitable signs of aging, that by the way are not so bad. If you got them it means you made it this far! Nobody is immune to aging skin.
What to do? You can go under the knife or just accept aging, save your money and do things that will slow down the aging process:
- Eat a well-balanced diet.
- Exercise, which will help oxygenate your skin.
- Use creams and serums to hydrate your skin.
- Use sunscreen and avoid the sun.
- Drink lots of water.
- Relax! To avoid deep frown lines.
- Quit smoking or drinking, if you do so heavily.
So, there is no secret uncovered here. There are though better creams and serums that can help your skin look and feel more plump and refreshed. And in time as your friends look older, you might look a tad younger, having taken care of your skin a bit better.
The serum I tried this time, besides the Advanced Night Repair Eye Serum Infusion I enjoy nightly already, is The New Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II by Estēe Lauder. SRP: US$62.00 – US$92.00.
The New Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II. According to Estēe Lauder Advanced Night Repair synchronized Recovery Complex II slows down the look of premature aging, reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Significantly improving skin radiance and skin-tone. In fact, after four weeks, 83% of women felt their skin looked healthier, fresher, and more rested.
The secret: Skin repairs itself at night, so Estēe Lauder has introduced NEW, ChronoluxCB™ Technology. This technology takes advantage of the restoration that takes place at night by combining potent purifying and synchronizing technologies to maximize nightly renewal using: Catabolysis Technology (Purifying) – a complex of active ingredients including algae extract and a yeast extract which have been proven to help skin cells increase their own natural Catabolysis activityx1. With enhanced cellular performance, skin cells perform more efficiently and effectively, so skin’s overall natural nightly renewal increases.
ChronoluxCB™ Technology (Synchronizing) – powerful, patented clock gene technology that helps support the natural synchronization of skin’s nighttime renewal process so that skin renews its appearance at exactly the right time.
My take: All this said, I’ve been trying it for a couple of weeks, after having committed the sinful act of tanning daily on my vacation at the beach, and my skin does look better, after the beating it took. I use it under a hydrating cream nightly and wake up to subtly hydrated skin. Meaning, not greasy. Bright and even. Of course, my wrinkles are still there but the texture does help my skin look more youthful to an extent.
Note: Treat your skin and body with loving care and you will age gracefully. Aging signs do appear and you can’t erase them completely, you can soften them, divert the attention by not only using great skin care, but by being as happy as you deserve to be. Your youth and beauty will shine through.
