At 40, I’m realizing my old skincare routine is no longer effective. I partnered with Bioelements to bring you a sponsored discussion about how to handle anti agin skin care. At least we can manage one area of growing old with ease!
At lease once a week I marvel at the fact that I am a legit grown up. I turned 40 last month but in so many ways I still feel 16. With aging, though, there is a lot of unchartered territory. Like, what are these new aches and pains? What is happening with this muffin top around my mid-section?
The 16-year-old in me still prefers lip gloss over lipstick. I still like rap music. I still shop in the juniors department at the mall. I still hate to do housework. I prefer flip-flops to shoes and I still wear my hair in a ponytail daily.
I still love sleepovers (only now they include wine and are most often at a hotel). I still do cartwheels (with my kids, not like, randomly). I still don’t like to get my hair wet when swimming. I wear just about the same makeup look as I did when I was 16.
And until recently, I’ve only ever had one skin care routine. And that was simply washing with soap and water. At around 38, I started noticing that my skin was changing. Hormones are jerks and mine started to go haywire. My skin was still oily but was somehow also dry at the same time. I was totally perplexed and really didn’t know what to do about it. But I knew that since my routine had been so simple, for my whole life, I was not about to jump in to some complicated regimen. Anti aging skin care can be really tough to figure out. Luckily Bioelements created a product that is perfect for women with a variety of anti aging needs. The fine lines that I’ve been noticing (and up to this point have ignored), the overall dullness of my skin and my larger pores all benefit from Bioelements Age Activist® Clinical Youth Serum. Talk about a streamlined skin care routine! This serum brings clinical levels of retinol, peptides, Vitamin E and Coenzyme Q10 to a product available for home use. And thanks to the way the product is made, the product is non-irritating (unlike some other products with retinols).
Age Activist® Clinical Youth Serum combines the best of what science and nature have to offer which is awesome. I love that they wanted to include ingredients that are known to be effective but also not add things like artificial fragrance or dyes. The yellow hue comes from beta carotene. This formula also includes watermelon, apple and fermented pumpkin which are shown to support a youthful appearance.
Having sensitive, oily skin all my life, I’ve always been hesitant to add products to my routine. What I love about this anti aging skin care serum is how quickly it is absorbed in to the skin! It isn’t heavy at all! While I prefer to use this before bed, I did try it under my makeup to see how it looked. Again, it absorbed super fast and my makeup went on smooth and didn’t look any different. I also didn’t feel like I had a heavy extra layer on which was awesome!
It’s hard to create a product that covers the uniqueness and range of skin types and concerns but that is the primary goal for Bioelements. Finding the right anti aging skin care products doesn’t have to be over complicated and over priced. The Age Activist® Clinical Youth Serum is the perfect product for the aging that affects all of us at one time or another.
