Two skincare products that will have you waving goodbye to pesky wrinkles and traditional Retinol…
Okay, I’m putting it our there. My friends and I spend a lot of time talking about and examining our faces for crow’s feet, fine lines and the dreaded 11s. We talk about what products we’re using, their efficacy, debate whether or not to start using Botox and then of course, we share the mandatory girl-code of remember-when stories about how poreless and smooth our faces were 10 years ago. No one is necessarily proud of it, but hey, old habits are hard to shake and great skincare is, well, highly coveted.
Proof that we all want it, a recent study by Dermstore, the Target owned US-based e-retailer founded by a dermatologist shows that more than a quarter of women under the age of 25 admit they regularly worry about aging. An additional 42 per cent of women aged 25 to 34 and 54 per cent of those aged 35 to 44 are also hyper vigilant about combatting facial lines. It’s why we all, including me, are spending so much time slathering on Ole Henriksen’s new wrinkle-busting anti-aging skincare products infused with natural retinol, Transform PLUS Glow Cycle Retin-ALT Power Serum and Goodnight Glow Retin-ALT Sleeping Creme, while peering into the mirror.
The line’s formulations are fuelled with the latest super-ingredient bakuchiol, a natural retinol alternative derived from the Ayurvedic babchi herb to fight aging without the harsh side effects of its chemical predecessor, which, if you have sensitive skin like me, is very much appreciated. They’re also complete with a healthy helping of AHAs and botanical ingredients to work day and night tobrighten with a colour-correcting lavender tint while reducing the look of pores, fine lines, wrinkles and dark spots and improving skin tone, texture and elasticity. Definitely worth talking about at my next girls’ night.
