Artificial intelligence – popularly known as AI – may someday accomplish what human scientists haven’t: Stop the aging process, at least cosmetically, if not biologically. Imagine never looking a day over age 35, when you just celebrated your 53rd birthday!
Plastic surgery might “turn back the clock” today, but even a spectacular surgeon can’t make a 50-something naturally look decades younger.
And, what’s the deal with the deluge of serums, lotions, creams, and oils that are labeled “anti aging”? Does that mean the telltale signs of aging go poof once these skin care products hit your epidermis? Nope, it’s not quite that simple.
“Anti-aging” is actually a phrase invented by some clever marketer who thought women would automatically connect these products with youthful attributes. And while quality skin care products are blended with scientifically formulated ingredients that can feed aging skin the essential nutrients it needs, many factors influence how well they’ll work. These include your age, the condition of your skin, the concentration of ingredients in the products, and whether they target your distinct concerns.
As a long time loyal customer, I can attest that Crepe Erase® Advanced 5-Piece Body + Face System from Body Firm® is a powerhouse skin care collection.
Crepe Erase is formulated for every age woman to use all over her body. To help our skin look its best, whether we’re 47 or 74!
It’s a rare woman who can go through her 40s and 50s without experiencing changes in her skin, somewhere on her face and body. Many women would link their issues to excessive time in the sun, lack of sleep, or toxins in the air. Others would blame genetics – puffy under-eye skin is inherited, for one.
But, all women experience perimenopause and menopause. And, with it, come dramatically decreasing levels of the hormone estrogen, and increasing signs of age. Our skin gets thinner, drier, less firm and elastic, causing wrinkles, sagging and crepiness.
Estrogen, in fact, supports the production of collagen and elastin, major proteins that give our skin thickness and elasticity, and help keep it moisturized. Less estrogen inside means aging skin outside!!(1)
My cousin Sherry complains about dark circles under her eyes, and my pal Nancy hides her puffiness with glasses. I grumble about the saggy skin on my neck, and bestie Mary Ann gripes about the loose skin on her underarms. The four of us uniformly kvetch about dryness – from our faces to our feet.
The “active ingredients” in skin care formulas are what help them biologically tackle our biggest concerns. One active ingredient helps the skin to absorb and retain moisture. Another aids in reinforcing the skin’s netting. A third assists in combating inflammation caused by factors including pollution, stress, poor diet and lack of sleep.
The higher the concentration of active ingredients in a product, the more effective they’ll be. These products also tend to be higher priced than drugstore brands, which have lower quantities of active ingredients – but are backed by multi-million dollar ad campaigns.
The Fab Four Must-Have Skincare Ingredients
Olive Oil, Glycerin, Hyaluronic Acid, and Retinoids are essential active ingredients for skin health, agree leading dermatologists and beauty chemists. Before investing in a single lotion, cream or serum, find out if it includes them.
Crepe Erase Advanced 5-Piece Body + Face System from Body Firm, a line for dry, crepey and sagging skin from my favorite brand, has all four key skin savers. And, it has an abundance of each one, so they really work hard. The collection treats the skin above my chin, too!
The hero ingredient powering Crepe Erase Advanced is TruFirm® Complex, an exclusive blend that includes three plant extracts to help reinforce our skin’s netting. This makes skin appear tighter and firmer. Crepe Erase Advanced also contains nine Super Hydrators, including coconut oil, cocoa butter, olive oil, squalane, grapeseed oil, Vitamin E and a trio of glycerides to deliver 72 hours of intense hydration to dry, crepey skin. Quick absorbing without leaving a greasy residue, the light and airy moisture-rich formula works to visibly smooth and renew the skin.
After a warm (never hot) shower, I settle into my comfortable TV-watching chair with a jar of Advanced Body Repair Treatment with TruFirm®. I love slowly massaging the rich formula into the skin on my neck, chest, arms and legs. It absorbs quickly and doesn’t leave me with a greasy feeling.
After using Advanced Body Repair Treatment for a few years, I have such smooth skin on my legs, I even get compliments from the women who do my pedicures. Just like its name says, this softly whipped cream helps restore firmer, healthier-looking skin all over my body.
The quartet of products that make up the system include the luxurious and rejuvenating Advanced Refining Facial Scrub and the silky Body Smoothing Pre-Treatment, both with TruFirm®. These are exceptional exfoliators that are easy to apply in the shower.
On to my face! Advanced Restorative Facial Treatment is a deluxe, ultra-hydrating formula with TruFirm® and a blend of moisturizing oils.
And, before bed, I apply a thin layer of deeply hydrating Overnight Facial Plumping Treatment, which visibly plumps and smooths as I sleep. Skin penetration levels rise at night, so skin care products work more efficiently. The skin also produces less sebum at night, and moisturizing helps keep it hydrated.
