Aging is an Inevitable Part of Life, but Showing Your Age is Not!

Here is a run down of how our skin ages as we grow older and what you can do to combat the signs of aging.

Twenties:

As teens we have oily skin and hormonal acne. It is in our twenties when our skins’ oil production begins to wane. With less oil, fine lines start appearing. It is also at this time that the body’s natural antioxidant production begins to decline, so products rich in antioxidants, especially ones with Vitamins C and E and fruit acids are a must. We recommend Eminence’s antioxidant packed Citrus and Kale Potent C+E Serum whose key ingredients include stabilized Vitamin C, Vitamin E, botanical ferulic acid, kale, spinach, broccoli sprouts, lemon, and grapefruit.

Thirties:

In our thirties, our metabolism begins to slow down. This causes collagen and elastin in the skin to break down, making skin thinner and less plump. As our skin becomes dryer and more sensitive, the fine lines that we saw in our twenties begin to deepen and sun damage becomes more apparent. The Hibiscus Instant Line Filler from Eminence can help plump the skin and fill in those lines and wrinkles. The Bright Skin Licorice Root Exfoliating Peel is excellent for repairing uneven skin tone caused by sun damage.

Forties:

As we reach our forties, our cells’ life cycle slows drastically. Skin dryness increases and elastin decreases, causing skin to sag as it can no longer bounce back the way it used to. Luckily Eminence has a plethora of products to help! Products containing the Natural Retinol Alternative (like those found in the Age Corrective Collection)*, lift and tighten skin and the Smart Collagen+ Complex (products such as the Marine Flower Peptide Collection)**, smooths skin and reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Products containing peptides like the Arctic Berry Peptide Radiance Cream help to plump skin while the Glycolic Acid found in the Firm Skin Acai Exfoliating Peel firms skin tissue.

Fifties and Better:

In our fifties, dryness increases even further, especially in women going through menopause due to the decreased estrogen levels. The sun damage that we accrued during our lifetime causes our skin to become rougher and our complexion to become more uneven. As wrinkles and sagging skin become even more prevalent, especially around the eyes and neck, we recommend using moisture rich products like the Monoi Age Corrective Night Cream for Face and Neck and the Lavender Age Corrective Night Eye Cream, both made with an Anti-Aging Stem Cell Complex.

With this arsenal of amazing organic products backed by science, you can look and feel years younger!
