3 Myths You Need to Know About
When it comes to anti-aging treatments, it’s important to separate the fact from the fiction. We’ve done our research and rounded up a few of our favorite over-the-counter products that really get the job done.
Myth: Skin ages. There’s not much you can do to prevent it.
The reality: There’s actually a lot you can do with the right skin care regimen. One of the most potent weapons in your skin’s anti-aging arsenal is a simple sunscreen, applied faithfully every day. Sun damage leads to a host of skin woes, including wrinkles and discolorations, and it’s never too late to start protecting it.
Pick a moisturizer that contains SPF, like Youth Code™ Dark Spot SPF 30 Day Cream. Speaking of dark spots, studies have shown that an uneven skin tone can be more aging in your appearance than wrinkles. To boost skin’s radiance and get a more even, luminous look, add a brightening product to your regimen, like Youth Code™ Dark Spot Correcting & Illuminating Serum Corrector.
Myth: Wrinkles can’t be reversed.
The reality: The appearance of wrinkles can actually be dramatically diminished with the use of some topical products.
A retinol-infused product will help diminish the appearance of wrinkles and create a more youthful look. Our pick: RevitaLift® Triple Power™ formulated with Pro-Xylane™.
The Collagen Filler line is formulated with collagen biospheres that penetrate the surface layer of the skin, these spheres expand up to 9 times their size. Wrinkles are visibly filled in, helping to reduce their appearance, and skin looks plumper.
Myth: After a certain age, cosmetics are aging.
The reality: Too much makeup can make you look older, and the wrong type of makeup—i.e. products with specks of glitter—will settle into wrinkles and make them seem more pronounced. But the right products and application techniques can really enliven your look.
This anti-aging wonder-worker is as close as your cosmetics bag. You may have heard that it’s best to apply blush to the apples of your cheeks. However, to give your face an instant lift, sweep blush above the apples, at the very top of your cheekbones. We’re in love with Visible Lift® Color Lift Blush in Rose Gold—the super luscious yet light formula blends easily so you’re left with a natural, gorgeous flush.
