Anti-Aging Skincare

1 2 3

We all want to look more youthful. It is one of the number one things we strive to preserve…our youth! Modern-day living can often take its toll, particularly on the skin. Rather than a vibrant and radiant shimmer, our skin ends up looking dull and dreary, and due to the high levels of toxins and pollutants around us, we may notice more signs of skin blemishes or chronic skin conditions such as Eczema or Acne. 

 

 

Natural wins for your skin

However, it is not all doom and gloom! Skincare requires focus, attention and of course, the right products that work well with your skin. 

Natural ingredients are always far better to use upon your skin, both short term and long term. Natural skincare means that you can understand and recognize the ingredients on the packaging and if you get the added boost of anti-aging vitamins and minerals then that’s even more of a win for your skin! 

We are mindful of what we put into our bodies as we consciously make better health-focused decisions, but we also need to be mindful of what we put onto our skin. It’s always important to remember that whatever we use on our skin is absorbed into our bodies! Skincare that supports our anti-aging goals can prove incredibly effective for more youthful, brighter skin. 

Here are some great anti-agers to look out for on your skincare products! 

  • Collagen. As we age, our body doesn’t produce as much collagen, less collagen means that we may notice more lines, wrinkles, and duller looking skin. Collagen helps in strengthening and supporting your skin and aids in improved skin elasticity and repair- it is vital for a more youthful appearance! Collagen is a protein; essentially it is the building blocks of your skin, connective tissue, and muscle. 

  • Essential oils such as Rosehip Oil, Lavender, Rose oil, Geranium, and carrot-seed oil are just a few essential oils that are super anti-agers. Not all essential oils are safe to use directly onto the skin, however, products with added essential oils or that use Chinese herbs can help to rejuvenate skin and assist in skin cell renewal. 

  • Vitamin C and E are both super high in antioxidants and can improve the look, feel and strength of your skin. 

Love the skin you’re in. It truly is the best way to give your skin what it needs. Here is a great quote about feeling comfortable with who you are- especially as you age!

My Zen Your Daily C Elixir is one of your ways to fight free radicals with a combination of Vitamin C and a strong mixture of botanical actives. Nano-structured water makes the ingredients highly bio-available.
