Avoid Surgery if Possible
What happened to Nicole Kidman lately? Once a stunning beauty she now flaunts a new young look peppered with plastic surgery gone wrong. It astonishes the gruesome lengths famous women will take to keep their precious youth appeal. Will we look back and label this odd face the vogue of the noughties? Surely surgery can only get better?
Every beauty company knows it’s every woman’s desire to stay young and they’re not too shy about cashing in on this fact. From bio-ceramides to fortifying systems to cellular fillers the beauty industry knows a thing or two about selling and with this ground breaking technology launching daily it’s difficult not to be a little convinced.
Yet are we looking any younger?
This top 10 is not about turning back the clock ten years; you’ll need surgery for that. This is for ladies who are fed up with fluffy promises and want real results. Affordable, effective and non invasive, here’s our top ten for anti-ageing products that actually work.
Caudalie Premier Cru 50ml – Refined and effective, Premier Cru, is the Ultimate Anti-ageing Cream inspired by the greatest vintages from the Chateau Smith Haut Lafitte. A concoction of the rarest, most precious and naturally active ingredients makes this a powerful product for your skin. The fine ingredients in Premium Cru protect the skin from premature ageing and maintain optimal levels of moisturisation and hyaluronic acid to keep skin supple. The most sought after ingredient is resveratrol which stimulates sirtuins (longevity proteins) that increase the lifespan of skin cells by 160%. The skin is firmer and denser. This really is the cream of the crop, excuse the pun.
La Prairie Cellular Cream Platinum Rare 1 oz / 30 ml – This skin transforming formula won’t disappoint making it well worth the price tag. Pure Platinum is the science behind this innovation which works by simply recharging the skin’s electrical balance to improve your skins nutrient absorption. The results? Plumps wrinkles (there really are visible results), refined and smooth skin for a radiant, flawless tone. Science and luxury that’s unbeatable.
Skinceuticals A.G.E Interrupter Mature Skin Treatment – This product is for an older skin type as it is targeted at improving the appearance of thin, creping skin. A.G.E. Interrupter is a unique treatment formulated with 4% blueberry extract, 30% Proxylane™, and 0.2% phytosphingosine to help prevent the glycation process and correct severe signs of intrinsic aging in mature skin. The glyaction process is where glucose molecules stick to collagen and elastin fibres, binding them leading to severe wrinkling of the skin. AGE Interupter helps to prevent and also correct this process so the results really do work. There is also a fantastic eye product in this range that reduces the creping around the eye making the skin look firmer.
Olay Regenerist MicroDermabrasion and Peel Kit – A two step treatment with radiant results. Gently resurfaces the skins texture, accelerates cell regeneration and conditions the skin. Use twice a week and continue your routine for results that just keep getting better.
Roc Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Daily Moisturizer, SPF 30 – Affordable and effective! Roc’s night cream works on wrinkles as you sleep which is when the skin is most receptive to repair and renewal. Overtime skin looks less tired and fresher in appearance. Retinal works to reduce the appearance of deep wrinkles. Use with RoC Retinal Correxion Deep Wrinkle Serum 1fl oz (30ml) for optimal results. The serum can be used in the morning too and is a good base for make up.
Skin Labratory Glycolic Acid 35% Gel Peel – Glycolic acid is well known as a beauty must have due to the results seen after just one week of use. The benefits are endless and only improve with time – reduced pigmentation, smoothed out wrinkles, even skin tone – it’s the anti-ageing wonder ingredient. And it’s not only for the face. If you suffer from razor bumps, stretch marks, eczema then give this product a go. The secret is repetitive and continued use.
Kiehl’s Dermatologist Solutions Double Strength Deep Wrinkle Filler – A cheat’s product that has a worthy place in every woman’s bathroom cabinet. The results are instant as the product literally fills in wrinkles so that they are no longer visible. Unlike the traditional fillers which used drying silicone the secret ingredient to Kiehl’s filling power is Sodium Hyaluronte spheres. Along with hyaluronic acid wrinkles are also smoothed away over time.
Boots No7 Protect & Perfect Intense Beauty Serum – Worthy of the huge publicity this product receives it’s effective and affordable. For the UK chemist Boots, Protect & Perfect is now a complete range on anti-ageing phenomenon’s. The serum is the hero product and offers and is now available globally online.
Prevage MD Anti-Aging Treatment – Elizabeth Arden’s secret ingredient in Prevage is Idebenone – the most powerful anti-oxidant available. For those starting this product young the skin is protected from environmental aggressors – it’s like wearing a protective mask to shield you from all those invisible attackers such as UV rays and pollution. For the more mature lady Idebenone works to correct damage that has already happened. The full range is recommended but if you only have the budget for one product it’s got to be the eye cream.
Lancome Paris Renergie Microlift R.A.R.E. Superior Lifting Cream With Spf 15 Sunscreen – Our last recommendation is Lancome’s superior lifting cream. Instant and effective coupled with longer term skin improvements. Drooping brows are lifted, sagging cheeks are firmer and a slackening jawline is tightened.
