Gratitude. That is the only word that I could use to describe the feeling coursing through my body as I sat amid family. This year, our usual gathering was a little smaller, with fewer relatives bustling around the house, but I still breathed in every moment.
Sitting at one of two folding chairs, I stared off into the void of a rum-colored kitchen full of gadgets- basically Bed, Bath, and Beyond on steroids. I listened intently as the conversations around me went from politics to who could bake the best pound cake. Every year the conversations never differed, except for this year. It wasn’t long before I started hearing remarks like :
- "It just seems like my neck is getting worse every time I look at it! I mean, look at this sagging!"
- "I used to think that my laugh lines were cute until I realized they were here to stay!"
Cooking and laughing, the more their conversation went on, I realized that all of them were at the same stage of life, mentioning the same skin problems, and using identical anti-aging products– but none of them had seen significant results.
Perhaps you have had the same conversations with friends, family, or even coworkers, comparing notes on the latest anti-aging products and desperately searching the reviews, thinking, “Has anyone had luck with this product?”
For years, there has been an ever-increasing legacy of women who find themselves trapped in the paradox of choice as they search relentlessly for a product that might help their aging skin.
While the process of aging should be one of the most enriching and illuminating experiences you could have, seeing the signs of aging dissuades you from exuberantly embracing the best years of your life.
Instead of spending your time exploring new lands or taking up the adrenaline-pumping activities you never got around to, here you are, wandering through department store after department store in search of the latest miracle cure for wrinkles.
Women everywhere stand in kitchens, bathrooms, and department store counters, having internal and external debates about what product can work for their skin. If anti-aging products were delivered as promised, would so many women still be in this cycle, though?
Why Preventive Aging is a Hidden Gem
What if I told you that anti-aging products are not inherently bad? Anti-aging products have a specific goal to improve the look and feel of the skin. That seems like a pretty positive thing, right?
At the surface level, the idea of anti-aging is amazing. However, most of these products fall short because of one key reason…they aren't in it for the long haul. They often contain harsh chemicals or synthetic ingredients to improve your appearance quickly while not considering the long-term effects they have on the skin.
Would you buy a product claiming to give you a facelift in a bottle?
It's probably because you already know that it takes more than that to achieve youthful skin. It's the same with anti-aging products that promise to get rid of all your aging problems in one sleek package. Just like the saying goes, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
When we think about fixing an issue, the first word that comes to mind is treatment. But, the saying is true, treatment without prevention is simply unsustainable.
Without a foundation of prevention to sustain your skin, the illusions of progress will fade quickly.
To truly get results that last and put your skin first, preventive aging is the answer. Instead of a short fix that doesn't take the time to nurture your skin back to health, preventative aging works beyond the surface to ensure a stable foundation. How does it do this? Through the use of high-grade ingredients that can improve the look and feel of your skin naturally.
The premise of preventative aging is more holistic than its counterpart, anti-aging. Instead of claiming to magically reverse the clock, preventative aging seeks to prevent further damage to the skin by healing it from the inside out. So, while you may already see some fine lines here or there, you are preventing future occurrences.
Let’s frame this with an example, shall we?
Imagine that you dyed your hair chocolate-brown with warm undertones of copper. Initially ecstatic about your new look, all enthusiasm fades a month later as you begin to see a few strands of gray peek their way through. Desperately wanting to get on top of the issue quickly, do you make an appointment immediately or wait for your roots to grow out three inches, revealing all of your aging secrets?
You would want to get on top of it as soon as you can, correct? The same principle applies to your skin. While you might see some level of aging already, the longer you wait, those signs will continue to progress and might even trigger a tidal wave of irreversible damage to your skin. Now is the time to take action and prevent further issues.
What Makes Preventative Aging Work?
Coco Chanel once said, "Nature gives you the face you have at twenty; it is up to you to merit the face you have at fifty."
No truer words have been spoken. While science tells us that collagen production begins to decrease in your 20s, there is still time to nurture your skin back to health, no matter the age. This is something that Averr Aglow believes in deeply.
That is why we have created the Forever Radiant line. It prioritizes your skin at every stage of life to give you a truly rejuvenating experience. Products like our Decadent Restoring Cream and Refining Cleansing Nectar help your complexion thrive for years to come by targeting the problem areas while deeply penetrating your skin to help heal and restore it to health.
How does it do this? By including only the best natural-based ingredients that hold to pure and responsible sourcing standards. Expect to see ingredient superstars like...
- Bakuchiol - A plant alternative to retinol that helps improve the look and feel of your skin without irritation.
- Glacial Oceanic Clay - This clay has an immediate effect in reducing the appearance of pores while gently purifying and detoxifying the skin. It can also be used for healthy exfoliation, blood circulation, visible smoothing and firming, and wrinkle reduction.
- Organic Apple Cellular Water - A rare organic plant material, apple cellular water is loaded with skin-enriching vitamins A, B, C, D, and E.
- Pomegranate - A natural moisturizer, pomegranate deposits nourishment into the skin to support cell regeneration and promote a youthful complexion.
- Kahai - A skin-preserving oil that contains high amounts of linoleic acid, vitamin E, and 3x more retinol than rosehip. It helps prevent the signs of aging and restore hydration, elasticity, and firmness.
All of these ingredients, included in our kit can help fortify your skin to prevent further damage and reduce pre-existing signs of aging. In addition, every ingredient works in simultaneous skin harmony to help nurture your skin, revitalize your complexion, and give you a radiant glow.
While it is true that no magic fountain can cause all signs of aging to disappear completely, an expertly crafted preventative aging routine, like the Forever Radiant Kit, can help your skin achieve its maximum level of youthfulness for as long as it can.
From potent vitamins to age-preventing antioxidants, every year can be a celebration of renewed youth. Who said you couldn't maintain youthful skin in your 50s, 60s, or even 70s? It's all in the prevention.
