October is in full swing, and with weather changes, politics blaring, and being inundated with information (yet yearning for distraction), you’ve probably heard about stem cells – a uniquely effective ingredient in skin care- yet how much do you know about them?
Stem cells are found in all living things and are the basis from which all other cells are developed. They are able to form into many different kinds of cells by dividing and self-renewing. (approx. every 40 days)
Many of you are huge fans of the Éminence Age Corrective Collection, which contains the Argan Stem Cell Complex to encourage the regeneration of dermal stem cells and increase skin density; found in the Lavender Age Corrective Night Concentrate. Another type, the Swiss Green Apple Stem Cell is packed with phytonutrients to restore youth to epidermal cells, combat chronological aging, and increase elasticity and firmness from the outside in, such as the Bamboo Firming Fluid (still the most popular product by miles).
Yet in a world of instant gratification, we can't help but want results fast. So arriving this month is the Age Corrective Ultra Collection- products that give the instant, lifting, tightening, and plumping- just in time for those holiday parties.
As always, remember to help your skin transition for the season by adjusting your regimen to reflect the changes in temperature and humidity- especially those exposed areas. (Remember, I'm here to help!)
So throw on your scarf, toss a few leaves around, gather your coffee, boots, etc. and settle into the season ahead. (Hope I was able to distract you for a moment.) Oh, and since it was brought to my attention this week, remember the benefits of realpumpkin (beta carotene, eyesight & immunity booster, etc.) instead of things unnaturally flavored like it. Hope that helps to clarify :)
