How To Age Gracefully: A Skin Care Routine
Just like the rest of the body, our skin ages with time. Read our Ultimate Guide To Skin Aging to learn more about the different signs of aging. In this article, we’ve collated a comprehensive skin care approach to defy the signs of aging with a collection that addresses all your skin concerns. This routine will help you age gracefully by preventing and treating wrinkles and fine lines, so you can feel confident and radiant. Some of the products recommended contain a unique Argan Stem Cell Complex to smooth and tighten the skin’s appearance. Others contain ingredients that replenish hydration while you sleep. This skin care routine is designed to:
- Visibly diminish the signs of aging, such as fine lines and wrinkles.
- Replenish hydration overnight.
- Transform a dull complexion into a bright, radiant one.
Step 1: Cleanse
The Monoi Age Corrective Exfoliating Cleanser firms and hydrates the skin while washing away grime and impurities. Crafted with exotic monoi, this refining cleanser rejuvenates skin for a smooth and lifted appearance. It is made with our unique Natural Retinol Alternative, gentle fruit AHAs, botanical enzymes and finely ground olive seeds that work in unison to refine skin and deep clean pores for a fresh, youthful-looking complexion.
To use the cleanser, massage the product gently into your face, neck and décolleté with your fingertips, and rinse with water. To see the cleanser in action, you can watch the video below.
Step 2: Tone
Tone your skin using the Neroli Age Corrective Hydrating Mist, which helps you combat the appearance of sagging skin. It contains a combination of moisture-replenishing ingredients including coconut water, neroli oil and coconut milk. Model and actress Olivia Culpo uses this mist, stating: “[I use] the Eminence Age Corrective Neroli Hydrating Mist on top of my masque to seal everything in. It feels so hydrating and scrumptious – love it!”
To use the mist, spray directly on to the face and neck, avoiding the eye area. Leave on.
Step 3: Mask
Our creamy Bamboo Age Corrective Masque minimizes the look of dry, dehydrated or aging skin overnight. This mask is infused with a BioComplex, a booster of antioxidants, coenzyme Q10 and alpha lipoic acid to improve the look of fine lines and wrinkles. It also contains argan oil which is an antioxidant that softens and moisturizes skin. It also contains shea butter, a moisturizer high in triglycerides and fatty acids.
To use, dilute a small amount of the mask with water. Apply evenly with your fingertips and leave the mask on for five to 10 minutes.
Step 4: Serums & Concentrates
Next, you can use the Bamboo Firming Fluid to infuse your skin with age-defying ingredients like bamboo, coconut and a Natural Retinol Alternative. Bamboo consists of soluble and insoluble fiber, antioxidants, proteins, vitamins and minerals for firm, hydrated and stronger-looking skin. This product stole the heart of actress Katherine Heigl who said: “I started using it because I love the way it smells ... it added just enough moisture to give my skin a gorgeous dewy glow without being too oily.”
To use, simply apply a thin layer to your complexion.
Step 5: Face Moisturizer
The Monoi Age Corrective Night Cream For Face & Neck contains monoi, evening primrose oil and our Argan Stem Cell Complex to rejuvenate the look of aging skin and smooth the appearance of wrinkles. What’s interesting about this product and the Monoi Age Corrective Night Body Cream is that they are designed to refresh skin overnight. As a result, this moisturizer leaves skin looking soft and revitalized, and can even be used twice a day.
With a circular motion, apply a thin layer until it’s absorbed. For a lighter application, dilute the moisturizer with water or tonique.
Step 6: Body Lotion
Replenish your skin’s moisture and enjoy a luxurious night’s sleep with this ultra-rich Monoi Age Corrective Night Body Cream. Enticing monoi unites with our exclusive Argan Stem Cell Complex to reveal softer, smoother and more youthful-looking skin, while shea butter and jojoba oil help to deeply hydrate and repair dry skin from head to toe.
To use, apply a small amount to cleansed skin and massage it in.
