Advertorial: No needles and no need for nifty makeup tricks
We are big fans of ageing gracefully. There’s nothing wrong with a few wrinkles that show you’ve lived a good life. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t take care of your skin and give it a helping hand to look its best. Prevention is definitely the best way to protect your skin from the signs of ageing, but sometimes those fine lines and wrinkles sneak up on you. And that’s when you find yourself searching around for a stellar set of anti-ageing skin care products that will deliver you results, fast.
Is 14 days fast enough for you? That’s how long Sukin claims you need to stick with its new Purely Ageless range to see results, which we think is pretty impressive. And at a price point of $25 and under per product, we reckon you’ve got nothing to lose and everything to gain.
Up for the challenge? Follow these four steps daily to look younger in just two weeks.
Step #1 / Oil
The secret to getting real results, fast, is with a supercharged oil. Always reach for one that addresses your specific concerns. Sukin’s Purely Ageless Hydration Elixir is a great all-rounder that immediately hydrates tired skin and works to reduce the appearance of surface wrinkles. Packed with natural ingredients like crambe oil, paracress extract and vitamins A and E, use this product after cleansing day and night. On slightly damp skin, apply a couple of drops of oil into the palm of your hands and smooth onto your face.
Step #2 / Serum
For a double dose of anti-ageing benefits, while also protecting your skin from everything your day throws at it, layer a serum over the top. Sukin’s Purely Ageless Intensive Firming Serum is an anti-ageing powerhouse that utilises natural actives like pure ribose, acacia gum and rosehip oil, along with cocoa butter, to improve skin elasticity and reduce the signs of ageing all while nourishing skin and protecting it from environmental conditions that can leave it dry and lacklustre.
Step #3 / Day and night cream
All skin could do with an extra dose of hydration – thanks to external factors like air-conditioning and sun exposure, and internal factors like not drinking enough water or dealing with stress, skin is constantly on the hunt for nourishment. That’s where a great day cream in the morning and a hardworking night cream before bed comes in. Sukin’s Purely Ageless Rejuvenating Day Cream is enriched with white hibiscus and baobab to naturally plump, firm and hydrate, while pure ribose helps visibly reduce the early signs of ageing and cocoa butter, goji berry and vitamin E join forces to leave your skin soft and soothed. At night, treat skin to firming ingredients like pure ribose, macadamia oil and cocoa butter found in Sukin Purely Ageless Restorative Night Cream to wake up more radiant and youthful-looking.
Step #4 / Eye cream
A good eye cream can work wonders for concealing your age. What we love about Sukin’s Purely Ageless Reviving Eye Cream is the addition of green coffee to pep-up tired eyes and diminish the signs of dark circles, as well as anti-ageing trio pure ribose, rosehip oil and sunflower oil – all of which are lovely and gentle on your sensitive eye area.
As well as having the right products and steps in your skin care routine, consistency is key. Just because you’re having a good skin day, doesn’t mean you can skip steps. If you stick with this routine, day in and day out for two weeks and beyond, you will see great results. Our Beauty Editor Iantha did – here’s what she thought at the end of her 14-day challenge.
