I love all kinds of natural beauty products–whether we’re talking about the latest organic mascara or a makeup remover that will remove all traces of my carefully-applied “day face” in one fell swoop. But the kinds of products nearest and dearest to my heart are anti-aging products. Because, my friends, I’m not a kid anymore. But that doesn’t mean I don’t mind getting carded by that fresh-faced cashier. (Who’d better think twice before he calls me, “ma’am!”)
Here are my tips for looking “young for your age”:
1. We All Scream for Sunscreen
Prevent premature damage and unsightly age spots and discoloration by applying sunscreen daily. If you haven’t tried DeVita’s protective moisturizer yet, which has an SPF of 30, you’re in for a treat. It’s so lightweight! Of course, many of our customers rave about Alba Botanica’s Hawaiian Green Tea Natural Sunblock, which has an SPF of 45 and smells pleasantly like a tropical beach party. It’s high-end stuff.
2. X Marks the (Age) Spot
Repair the visible signs of aging with an antioxidant-rich cream or nutrient-infused serum. With age comes wisdom–and also, unfortunately, age spots. Reviva Labs Brown Spot Night Cream with Kojic Acid is one of our most popular products for reducing the appearance of those “wisdom freckles.”
3. Love That Lipo Cream
One serum I can’t say enough great things about is MyChelle’s Ultra Hyalronic Hydrating Serum, which restores natural moisture. Meanwhile, if it’s more firmness you seek, Avalon Organics Renewal Facial Creme with Vitamin C contains a lipo-filling complex for serious results.
4. Exfoliate, Hydrate, Celebrate!
Restore the radiance of youth with gentle exfoliation (at least twice a week)–I like Acure Organics Brightening Sea Kelp Plus Chlorella Growth Factor Facial Scrub—and age-defying hydration (daily), like derma e Hydrating Night Creme with Hyaluronic Acid, which really does a great job tackling wrinkles and increasing moisture and firmness.
