How to Choose Organic Anti-Aging Skin Care

Aging.  We all do it and it does show up on the skin.  That does not mean that we can’t do something to keep our skin looking great right now, and for years to come.

A while back we received a few reader questions on anti-aging skincare:  at what age to start and which products work best for different skin types.

First off, it is a great idea to start using anti-aging creams before you actually start to see signs of aging – sagging skin, thinner skin, fine lines.  There are different anti-aging skin care products for different ages, needs, etc.  Someone in there 20’s is going to have different skin care needs than someone with oily skin in their 30’s or dry skin in their 40’s. 

Lavere Organic Anti-Aging Skincare from Lavera offers comprehensive anti-aging skincare lines to suit all skin types.  HYDRO addresses those with younger skin.  This line is also suitable for people with normal/combination skin types.  INTENSIVE is for sensitive skin types, and SOLUTION is for dry skin.  If certain Lavere products are out of stock I highly recommend checking back.  These are truly great products and Lavera restocks often.  You can also try their My Age anti-aging line which also offers great results.

Lavera uses powerful anti-aging ingredients like Green tea extract, Sepilift and Hyaluronic acid to protect skin from free radical damage cause by environmental influences, UV damage and toxins.  They also add a healthy dose of organic plant oil for healthy hydration.

And I simply can not over-express the importance of hydration in keeping skin young-looking and healthy.  Think of a morning after you’ve been up late, eaten too much pizza and maybe had a couple of drinks.  You know how your skin looks sunken, sallow and lifeless?  This is from lack of hydration.

Hydration does not come from skin care alone.  Be sure you are drinking plenty of water, and avoiding overconsumption of caffeine and salt.  Getting adequate exercise and sleep, and eating a healthy diet also benefits the skin.

If you are looking for one product that can hydrate and provide anti-aging benefits, I highly recommend Trilogy Certified Organic Rosehip Oil.  Lightly hydrating and gives skin a little boost and glow.  Rosehip oil is also very gentle and can be used as a moisturizer around the eyes at night.  Be sure to always keep eye creams/oil one inch away from the actual eye.

Last week a friend told me about two yoga poses that are supposed to help diminish signs of aging in the face and keep skin looking awesome.  They are plough and shoulder stand.  I am going to give that a shot and will let you know the outcome.

If you have any questions about these, or any other organic anti-agers please leave a comment below.  I ‘d be glad to help you out.
