This Mother’s Day, treat Mom or Grandma to turn back the clock on her skin with these high performance anti-aging creams formulated to reduce the signs of stress, sun damage and time. From fine line reducers to skin lightening lotions, we have the skinny on what she really wants and needs to feel pampered and appreciated.
START THE DAY RIGHT
Elizabeth Arden Prevage Day Intensive Anti-Aging Moisture Cream ($129) helps nourish the skin and reverse dryness. In the process, it diminishes the appearance of aging signs—including fine lines, wrinkles, and discolorations. A broad spectrum of sunscreens help shield and protect skin from the sun, too. The moisture cream feels ultra soft and leaves skin healthy, radiant, and younger-looking—just what we all want.
BRING DULL SKIN BACK TO LIFE
Help mom just say NO to early signs of aging with Darphin Fibrogene Line Response Nourishing Cream ($80). This nurturing and delightfully scented cream contains Omega 3, 6, & 9 to help reduce the appearance of fine lines while promoting renewed density to thinning skin. You’ll notice that skin appears plumper and more youthful.
C IS FOR COLLAGEN
Clinique Youth Surge SPF 15 ($49.50) uses the latest technology to produce a fountain of youth in a jar. Wrinkles seem to evaporate overnight as the skin is plumped by collagen and elastin—the body’s way of turning back the clock. The reviews are stellar for this shining star of the Clinique line of products.
Laura Mercier Flawless Skin Repair Eye Serum ($80) is a concentrated formula that addresses aging concerns around the eye. It instantly tightens and brightens the eye area with a blend of soothing Japanese botanicals. Geranium extract helps firm the appearance while caffeine brightens dark circles.
THE BEAUTY OF HERBS
Wei Tibetan Safflower Age Defying Face Cream ($60) uses this rare botanical to help promote circulation, which improves the color and clarity of your skin. The formula locks in moisture with a layer of lightweight oils to prevent evaporation. The water of the herbal extract is delivered to the skin’s surface and retained there for optimal effect.
COUNT ON ESTÉE
You can always count on Estée Lauder products, and their Re-Nutriv Ultimate Lift Age-Correcting Serum ($200) is no exception. You’ll appear younger and more lifted—naturally and immediately. With continued use, it helps redefine the skin’s texture while recharging cells and restoring the vitality of your natural beauty.
MAKEUP FOR THE AGES
No matter mom’s age, she’ll glimmer and glow with Lancôme Ageless Minerale with White Sapphire Complex ($36). This brightening mineral makeup sweeps away signs of aging to reveal a flawless and luminous complexion. The perfecting powder hides lines, pores and imperfections without settling into creases. Simply buff over bare skin with the convenient companion brush for a fresh ageless look that lasts all day—and night.
BRING BACK THE BLOOM OF YOUTH
Bakel Oxyregen ($145) is a regenerating and penetrating cream for aging skin, formulated with oxidizing yeast that stimulates cells and activates the natural ability of the skin to regenerate itself. Extracts of olive, jojoba, and avocado oil deliver essential nutrients and provide elasticity. For use morning and evening on the whole face, including the delicate eye area. The cream is ideal for sensitive skin.
THE FUTURE IS HERE
Shiseido Future Solution LX Eye & Lip Contour Regenerating Cream ($130) is receiving rave reviews. This powerful restorative hydrating cream is formulated with the company’s Form Support Veil to visibly diminish the appearance of wrinkles and lines around the lips and firm up the sagging around the eyes. One application will leave skin with a velvety radiance.
REVERSE SIGNS OF DAMAGE
The five-step Level II Anti-Aging Program from ZO Skin Health is recommended for adults with chronological or environmental skin aging to help repair and prevent skin damage. Active ingredients restore the appearance of healthy skin and help maintain a youthful complexion—allowing mom to regain a firmer, more even skin tone.
BE LUMINOUS WITH LUMIXYL
Help mom’s healthy skin resurface by getting rid of the old skin cells with Lumixyl MD GlycoPeel 20 Rapid Exfoliating Lotion ($60). As the upper layers are removed, cellular turnover is stimulated, thus increasing a more even skin tone. She will look more vibrant and feel more youthful—what a perfect present.
THE POWER OF THREE
Exuviance Age Repair Trio ($105) has been specially created to defy the visible signs of aging. The kit contains SkinRise Bioic Toner (convenient pads that improve skin’s clarity and renew skin), Vespera Bionic Serum (designed to protect skin while reducing appearance of wrinkles), and Rejuvenating Complex (a powerful formula to smooth, plump, and firm skin, leaving it looking more youthful). This great anti-aging skincare regime can be used on all skin types.
