While most ladies collect and obsess over shoes, cute cocktail dresses and sexy jeans (OK, I’m guilty of that too), I spend a lot of time scoping out cruelty-free anti-aging/wrinkle creams. Granted I’m a relatively young lassie, I firmly believe in the healing power of an antioxidant, peptidey-rich wrinkle-fighting formula.
These are the two I’ve been using every day for the past two weeks, and I lurve them!
Système 41 Rejuvenating Masque ($29.95): What I love most about this masque is that it tingles a little bit while it’s on (which seems like a sign that it’s working… could also be the menthol and tea tree oil in it too). I do notice that my skin feels impeccably smooth after I wash the masque off… it’s almost trippy how soft and seamless it feels.
Key ingredients in this power-packed anti-aging masque:
- Amazon White Clay which unclogs pores and lifts impurities.
- Natural Pomegranate and Papain Enzymes which remove dead skin cells.
- Olive Squalane which helps skin hold moisture and suppleness.
- Probiotic Complex which protects skin from the elements.
derma e Peptide Plus Wrinkle Reverse Crème ($43.50 ← bought this at Whole Foods, btw): Ladies and germs, meet your new friendly peptide posse—Palmitoyl Pentapeptide, which tells skin to restructure itself and synthesize new key components like collagen (which improves elasticity). The other peptide is Acetyl Hexapeptide, which relaxes facial muscles, smoothes away fine lines and discourages new ones from forming. Add in some kick-ass antioxidants like Pycnogenol, Vitamin C and green tea extract, and badda bing badda boom.
Whether you’re a die-hard anti-aging freak like I am, or you’re a skeptic and would rather spend your money on edibles or wearables (all good, I feel ya)—I think we can all agree that it can’t hurt to at least try some of these fab creams in an effort to look deliciously youthful and H-O-T until we’re 112. ←What? Didn’t you hear 112 is the new 80?
Anywho, which anti-aging products are your faves? Please share in the comments below. xx
