With age comes wisdom and hopefully a shift from the turmoil of your teens and insecurity in your 20s to more self-confidence in your 30s, 40s and beyond. But feeling more comfortable in your skin emotionally, doesn't necessarily mean that your skin isn't literally going through changes physically.
According to WebMD, after age 30 women lose one percent of our collagen per year. And as women approach or enter menopause (usually somewhere between 40 and 58), estrogen decreases and so does the body's ability to produce oil and retain moisture, and dry skin becomes more common.
So what's a girl to do?
Skin Inc.'s customized skincare solutions help women create their own fuss-free skincare regimens to target your skin's problem areas, including hormonal skin. The curated range of paraben-free products includes nine serums, two cleansers/exfoliator, one multi-tasking mask and one moisturizer.
Everything She Wants experienced the products firsthand during a press event at Manhattan's luxe The Spa at Trump Soho, and emerged from an indulgent facial looking and feeling refreshed. Here are the three Skin Inc. products prescribed for my hormonal and stressed skin (each product is then blended in a single bottle in the color of your choice, to create a potent daily serum called My Daily Dose):
Renew: Coenzyme Q10
Coenzyme Q10 is a natural cell revitalizer – it activates the production of energy in cells, helping to renew cell functions and increase the absorption of nutrients in skincare products – slowing down the aging process for more youthful skin.
Repair: French Pine Bark
Extracted from the bark of French coastal pine, this super anti-oxidant is 350 times more effective than Vitamin C and 170 times more powerful than Vitamin E. It is combined with EGF, a protein found naturally in skin that increases DNA synthesis and cell growth that moisturizes the skin and reduces the signs of ageing skin.
Contains four different types of Ceramides to reinforce the skin’s protective barrier. This prevents dehydration of the skin and protects it from external stimuli such as chemicals, dry air and UV rays. This serum can also be used to relieve the symptoms of eczema.
