image

From the importance of SPF to the wonders of dry shampoo, I’ve learned a lot during my time on Team Birchbox. Chief among them? The importance of starting an anti-aging routine in your 20s. I know, I know. I can hear the objections from hereWhat about throwing caution to the wind? What about youthful naiveté?

But during your 20s preventative care and early treatment can help you maintain that youthful glow well into your twilight years. We recently found out about a new line from cosmetic dermatologist Dr. Fredric Brandt that was created just for newbies to the anti-aging skincare game.

Meet The Ace Wrinkle Fighter We Heart
What is it? pūr~lisse pūr~youth preserve age delay skin serum, a potent anti-aging serum powered by blue lotus flower, rice bran, and antioxidants.
Who is it perfect for? Anyone looking to stave off or soften the inevitable effects of Father Time. It might sound counter-intuitive, but you should start to think about anti-aging products around 25 since that’s when your skin starts to lose elasticity. In addition to your regular routine (wash, tone, moisturize, and exfoliate twice a week), add in this featherlight serum to prevent fine lines, wrinkles, and dark circles.
How do I use it? Keep in mind that serums are super concentrated, so a little goes a long way. Start by smoothing on half a pump of product and blend evenly onto your complexion and neck. Here’s the most important step though: allow the gel-like formula to sink in for a few moments before continuing with the next step in you skincare routine. Mixing in another product too soon will prevent the ingredients in the formula from fully sinking into your skin.
Have you tried this age-fighting serum? Tell us what you think!

Full of antioxidants and phytonutrients that fight disease and aging, grapes are the ultimate superfood. (Photo: bbc.co.uk)

As beauty writers, sometimes it seems like a new miracle-working exotic fruit drifts over from the tropics every season. While it’s exciting to be learning about things like acai berries, goji berries, and pitaya, there’s no need to journey through the rainforest to find an anti-aging miracle. One of the best ingredients for anti-aging is already here, and its home-grown! It’s time to get reacquainted with the humble grape.

You’ve probably thrown them in your salads and set them out with cheese for cocktail parties without even pausing to think about how incredible these tiny fruits are.
