As we gracefully age like a fine wine, our skin unfortunately tends to lose its elasticity and become drier, resulting in the dreaded wrinkles and fine lines. Fear not, my dear friends, for the solution lies in the power of moisturizers. With their hydrating properties, we can maintain our youthful glow and bid adieu to those pesky wrinkles. Allow me to introduce you to the world of moisturizers and the finest ingredients to combat the signs of aging and keep you looking fresh-faced and fabulous!
What Are OTC Moisturizers?
OTC stands for over-the-counter, which means these products don't require a prescription to purchase. OTC moisturizers come in various forms, such as creams, lotions, and serums, and offer several benefits for aging skin, including:
- Hydrating the skin
- Reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Restoring the skin's natural moisture barrier
- Soothing dry and irritated skin
Compared to prescription moisturizers, OTC moisturizers are generally milder and have fewer potential side effects. They're also more affordable and accessible, making them an excellent choice for daily skincare routines.
The problem? With so many options, it’s very difficult to figure out what to choose!
Here’s my advice.
Don’t think about the options, focus on the ingredients. As you become more familiar with what ingredients work well with your skin, you will be able to make confident choices!
Why Plant Stem Cells in Skincare?
Have you heard about the latest buzz in anti-aging skincare? It's plant stem cells! Yes, you read that right - plant stem cells! They have the power to regenerate and repair damaged tissue, making them a must-have ingredient in nuorganic's anti-aging skincare products. In short, this is what they do:
- Stimulate the production of collagen and elastin
- Protect against UV damage and environmental stressors
- Promote cell turnover and renewal
- Improve overall skin texture and firmness
Compared to other anti-aging ingredients, such as retinol or hyaluronic acid, plant stem cells offer long-term benefits for skin elasticity and health. That’s why we combine them together for the ultimate effect.
It’s all about the Ingredients.
Here’s 4 effective OTC moisturizers for aging skin:
24k Gold Instant Lift Cream
The 24k Gold Instant Lift Cream is like a magic potion for your skin, with 24k gold that reduces inflammation, Argireline that firms your skin, and 15% Vitamin C that enhances collagen production and reduces signs of aging. The cream also includes apple stem cells, which protect and repair skin elasticity. Often used as a stand alone 1- step product!
Ageless Face Cream
If you want to keep it ageless, the Ageless Face Cream is the way to go. It features palmitoyl tripeptide-5 that protects and boosts collagen production, vitamin E that reduces aging, aloe vera that calms your skin and reduces inflammation, and hydrolyzed collagen helps the skin retain moisture and promotes youthfulness. Often used as a great duo after you’ve used a specific serum.
Power Peptide Cream
When we say a light cream, this is IT! Perfect for oily skin, this cream contains multi-peptides, which support healthy, youthful-looking skin and increase elasticity. Organic aloe vera improves aged or damaged skin by promoting skin growth, and organic green tea helps heal UV-damaged skin with its powerful antioxidants. Finally our power peptide cream includes vitamin E helps soften the skin and retain moisture.
Ageless Eye Cream
Last but not least. Ageless Eye Cream. It features Argireline and Rigin, which help promote collagen production and repair the skin barrier. It also includes apple stem cells, which protect and repair skin elasticity. This is a very specific cream meant to provide moisturization to the thinnest skin layers under your eyes. This is important as other standard creams may cause irritation.
How to Start Your Skincare Routine
To get the best results from anti-aging skincare products, follow these steps:
- Cleanse your skin thoroughly with a gentle cleanser.
- Apply a toner to balance your skin's pH levels.
- Apply a serum or treatment product to target specific skin concerns (aging, acne, dry skin, other other related items)
- Apply nuorganic's moisturizer to hydrate and protect your skin.
- Apply sunscreen daily!
- Do your research! Focus on high quality ingredients that are free from harsh chemicals.
At nuorganic, we know it’s important for you to find the right products perfect for your skin.
