Are we aging at a younger age? – Is the environment effecting us?


Do You Need Anti-Aging Products in Your 20s and 30s?

The answer might surprise you

Wrinkle creams used to be reserved for the over-40 set, but now more and more beauty companies are marketing anti-aging products to twenty- and thirty-somethings. So, do you really need potions to make you look younger when you’re still, well, young?

“In your late 20s to mid-30s, you enter a pre-aging,” says New York dermatologist Dr. Kavita Mariwalla. At this stage, you might start to notice lines around your eyes and mouth, or dark spots from sun damage. And while “pre-aging” may be the most depressing new term I’ve heard as a beauty editor on the brink of 30, it isn’t all bad news—as long as you’re using the right products.

Before Bed: Retinol

If there’s one ingredient that could be considered the fountain of youth, it’s this one.It increases cell cycle turnover, it also helps promote collagen and in doing that, it decreases pore size. It’s also a scavenger of sun damage.” And because retinol helps shed pore-clogging dead skin, it can help clear up the adult acne that you may get at this stage in life.

The folowing products are high end quality with mid range prices. Usage is VERY economic. They last on average 1 month more than other brands.


Try: R3 Factor

Help your skin RETAIN its natural moisture, RESTORE its resilience and RENEW its appearance with R3 Factor® Skin Defence Creme – a rich combination of stabilised Aloe

Vera gel, soluble collagen and alpha-hydroxy acids, fortified with vitamins A and E, each vital to healthy skin.

Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant, while vitamin A helps in the maintenance of healthy skin and is beneficial for many skin conditions.

Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) come from natural plant sources and are also called Fruit Acids.

Together, these fruit acids are exfoliants that loosen dead cells from the skin’s surface by dissolving the natural glue-like substances that refuse to release the dead skin cells. These cells create a barrier to moisturising creams, so getting rid of these dead cells evenly means that fresher cells are exposed in the skin’s renewal process.

Since it takes 21-28 days for the skin renewal process to complete a cycle, allow a similar amount of time to realise the full benefits of R3 Factor.

Fruit acid creams and Retinol have been called the most important skin care agents of the decade. By combining AHAs with soothing aloe, R3 Factor Skin Defence Creme provides a first line of defence in fighting the harsh effects of time to preserve your skin’s youthful appearance.


After cleansing, apply to face, neck and other areas where needed. For best results, use both morning and night. May be followed by Firming Foundation Lotion and/or makeup or by Recovering Night Creme at night, if desired. (See section on Aloe Fleur de Jouvence).

In the Morning: Antioxidants

Look for products that contain ingredients that have preventative qualities, products containing peptides and plant stem cells and those that are rich in antioxidants.”

Since air pollution and UV rays are sources of free radicals (molecules that damage living cells and cause ageing), protect skin with a layer of antioxidants before you leave the house. “You’re literally creating a shield on the skin so no free radicals can touch the skin
