THE BEAUTY JUNKIE ANSWERS YOU:
A: Now is a great time to take a close look at your current skin care regimen and make sure you are not skipping any steps that allow for signs of aging to creep up on your complexion. Here are five steps to follow to achieve AND maintain flawless and youthful skin from hairline to jawline!
- Cleanse – use a wrinkle-fighting cleanser that contains peptides and exfoliates with jojoba beads. Our Exfoliating Cleanser is formulated with Argireline, a peptide that relaxes repetitive facial contractions to combat creases plus jojoba beads to slough away dead skin cells, enabling skin to better absorb the wrinkle-fighting treatments that follow.
- Anti-aging Serum – apply a serum rich in collagen-boosting peptides and DMAE, an anti-inflammatory that increases firmness throughout the skin. I personally use HydroPeptide’s Cellular Transformation Serum because it contains DMAE plus six peptides that include a milk polypeptide and growth factors that really plump up and firm my skin!
- Anti-aging Cream – lavish skin with another layer of peptides, antioxidants, hyaluronic acid and natural licorice for added skin-brightening benefits. I recommend HydroPeptide’s Power Lift cream for day and night because not only does it have all these key actives but it also contains 21 hydrating elements and Trylagen, a peptide blend formulated to fight fine lines and other signs of aging.
- Eye Cream – make it a peptide-packed formula for maximum wrinkle-lifting benefits and to reduce puffiness and dark circles. I swear by HydroPeptide Eye because it contains seven peptides, including Syn-Coll, a peptide that diminished the appearance of wrinkles by 350% in clinical trials.
- Sun Protection – choose one with an antioxidant blend and an SPF of 30 to protect your skin while neutralizing the threat of free radical damage. My product pick for this one is HydroPeptide’s SPF 30 because it contains color-changing spheres that self-adjust for a flawless finish for all skin tones plus an antioxidant blend that includes Acai berry, a free-radical fighter with 10x the antioxidant power of red grapes.
In the meantime, here are some age-proofing makeup tips to try:
- Use the right shade of concealer and apply it with a light hand.
- Lightly pat a pink- or peach-toned corrective concealer to the under-eye area.
- Follow with a light application of a yellow-toned concealer.
- Apply the concealer close to the lashes and to the inner corner of the eye as well.
- Use a lip brush to blend the edges of the concealer for a flawless final touch!
- Use eyeliner to your advantage.
- When lining eyes, extend the liner slightly at the outer corner of the eye.
- If needed, use gentle strokes to broaden the line so that the liner is thick enough to be visible when your eyes are open.
- Plump your pout, immediately!
- Apply a lip gloss containing lip-plumping and anti-aging ingredients. HydroPeptide Lip contains Tripeptide-29, a collagen-building peptide that increased lip volume by 40% and minimized fine lines by 29% after a 29 day trial period. This pretty and pain-free plumping gloss also has Benzyl Nicotinate, a vasodialator that opens up capillaries for fuller lips in 10 minutes!
