Ageing gracefully is every women’s dream, and thankfully the purveyor of aesthetic miracles, Elizabeth Arden’s updated Youth Restoring Serum can help.
A casual swipe across my social feed presented me with a title I could not resist clicking. The somewhat offending article read “Men Become Distinguished with Age. Women Just Get Older”. Yellow journalism, you would think… not. Ageing gracefully is every women’s dream, and thankfully Elizabeth Arden’s YOUTH RESTORING SERUM is here to help.
Much credible research has evaluated how collagen and lipid levels degrade over time in the human dermis. And unfortunately, women have the stiffer end of the deal. We tend to lose elasticity and the natural luminescence faster than our male counterparts.
What’s more, Aussie scientists claim that ladies down under who are exposed to clearer skies and thus more UV rays tend to age 20 times faster than the women up north. This rationale, unfortunately, applies to us South African women as well. The writing on the wall is big and bold. We need to step up our skincare regime.
Youth Restoring Serum
And thankfully, the purveyor of modern aesthetic miracles, Elizabeth Arden’s updated offering, can help. Elizabeth Arden has re-released a couple of top-of-the-line products that fight most of the signs of ageing and create a protective barrier to seal in the moisture of the skin – without pushing you to invest in a whole horde of lotions and potions.
Advanced Ceramide Capsules Daily Youth Restoring Serum
As the years’ tick by, not only do we start producing lower levels of collagen, we also put the brakes on the production of ceramides. Collagen is responsible for the strength of the skin tissues and the resulting elasticity. But the downhill spiral begins with a debilitating loss of moisture, which happens to be the domain of ceramides.
The Advanced Ceramide Capsules Daily Youth Restoring Serum contains lipid complexes that maintain the dermis’s defensive moisture barrier, effectively fighting off the heat and pollution of a busy day. The ingredients list also includes Sea Fennel Extract and Phytosphingosine to immediately and visibly re-texturise your skin for that elusive glow of youth. A blend of precious botanicals and Tsubaki oil supplement collagen levels, smoothening fine lines and wrinkles.
The test results are impressive, with 89% of women improving the skin’s texture and a whopping 100% of women enjoying increased luminosity and radiance.
MY ULTIMATE CULT BEAUTY ‘TRIED-AND-TRUE’ HOLY GRAIL Products
Eight Hour® Miracle Hydrating Mist
This ultra-convenient Eight Hour® Miracle Hydrating Mist has become my holy grail. Fashioned to fit into a lady’s already cluttered purse, and it lives up to its name with a tingling freshness that lasts for the better part of the day.
The actual spray is light, and the beads do not sit conspicuously on your face and neck. This hydrating mist is quite versatile, allowing me to use it before my power naps, after makeup touch-ups or even as an instant pick me up in the mornings.
Acai, Goji, Mangosteen, Noni and Pomegranate fruit extract and Coffee Seed and Apple leaf drive a unique three-pronged action that invigorates and protects (because of the rich anti-oxidant effect) and soothes the skin.
Both additions to the Elizabeth Arden line are a must-have for women on the go. Light, easily absorbed yet intensely hydrating, they prove to be superbly effective. After all, the Elizabeth Arden legacy is the best guarantee backing any purchase.
- Throw your empty Advanced Ceramics Capsules into your bath for the ultimate pamper session and an intensely nourishing soak.
- Keep your Eight Hour® Miracle Hydrating Mist spray in your handbag for an on-the-go refresher throughout the day.
