Not everything about aging is bad, right?
For a start, it means you’re lucky enough to have made it this far… and you’ve probably also loved, been loved, laughed and cried at many points in your lifetime. What a blessing!
But with age comes something far less desired… wrinkles.
Not to mention dull, uneven and sagging skin! Thankfully, we have 3 powerful anti-aging secrets that will help you age gracefully.
Put simply, antioxidants are your anti-aging heroes. Not only do they help your skin heal and produce healthy collagen, they protect you from all kinds of environmental assaults which contribute to aging skin.
One of the most powerful ways to get your dose of antioxidants is to eat them. Follow our top 6 food rules here to make sure you are consuming a diet full of antioxidant-rich foods.
Another great place to include antioxidants is in sun protection. Apply a daily broad-spectrum sunscreen that has added antioxidants to gain extra protection from the damaging effects of UV exposure.
New research discovered that Jojoba Oil alone contains more antioxidants than pure Cranberry Seed Oil or Raspberry Seed Oil (two of the highest known natural anti-oxidant oils). (Hint: try the Jojoba Restore Face Oil.)
As we get older, the external layers of our skin become thick and rough while the inner layers become thin and collagen breaks down. A smart way to condition both layers is to apply a daily AHA exfoliant, such as Ogee’s organic Daily Facial Cleansing Cloths.
Our hydrating daily facial wipes are formulated with Multifruit BSC which gently removes dead skin and promotes healthy cell renewal, instantly giving you a smoother, firmer and more radiant complexion. Find out why Byrdie’s senior beauty editor loved our wipes so much here.
3. Apply a hyaluronic acid serum for supple, plump skin
I know what you’re thinking, but I promise they're not scary.
Hyaluronic acid isn’t the type of acid that will burn your face off. Quite the opposite. It’s actually a natural substance that is already present in your body and it does wonders to plump and smoothen out skin, erasing years from your face.
It can literally hold more than a thousand times its own weight in water. In her book, Pretty Honest, Sali Hughes describes the cosmetic effect of this as “akin to soaking a raisin in a glass of water, the surface of the skin looks plumper, fatter, smoother, younger”.
Incorporate this super ingredient into your skincare by applying Ogee’s antioxidant-rich Seed of Youth Serum morning and night. Formulated with Hyaluronic Acid, Aloe Leaf gel and Jojoba oil, our serum binds moisture to the skin while forming a barrier to lock the hydration in. It also contains Edelweiss Stem Cells which will boost your skin’s luminosity, giving you a radiance you perhaps haven’t experienced in years.
