8 of the best: unique anti-ageing ideas
Love your regular anti-ageing eye cream, serum and moisturiser, but want to try something a little different? Or maybe even something even a little unusual? We hear you. Loud and clear.
These eight anti-ageing inventions are just that: slightly different, but all wonderfully effective when it comes to maintaining and boosting a youthful complexion and body. Try one; try them all. Because each and every one gets the bh tick of anti-ageing approval…
UNIQUE ANTI-AGEING PRODUCT #1: Environ Cosmetic Roll CIT
Want to speed up the reduction of pigmentation marks? Restore skin tightness? Smooth fine lines? And even make your skin care products work harder for better results? This tool can do just that. Its micro needles puncture the skin, allowing topical ingredients to penetrate deep into the cells, making them more effective. Said needles also send the skin into an instant healing mode, promoting greater cell turnover as a result.
UNIQUE ANTI-AGEING PRODUCT #2: freezeframe® LIP INJECTION
Smoked a few too many ciggies in your time? (Naughty, naughty!) Or maybe your upper lip is just starting to line naturally? Before going straight for the real injectable, why not try this treatment instead? It contains micronised hyaluronic acid spheres that swell and expand, treating vertical lines around the mouth instantly. Bonus: it’ll also plump up your lips, making them look fuller.
UNIQUE ANTI-AGEING PRODUCT #3: Tranquileyes Age Defence Water Therapy
Considering the eye area is one of the first to show signs of ageing, it makes sense to treat it with care. This nifty kit allows you to go beyond simply applying your usual eye cream and give your skin an intense hydration boost. The formula, which contains green tea, vitamin C, and honeysuckle, is used in combination with moist-heat therapy to infuse the eye area, effectively reducing dryness, fines line, wrinkles and redness.
UNIQUE ANTI-AGEING PRODUCT #4: Dermapen In-Salon Treatments
The Dermapen tool used in these treatments utilises advanced vertical skin needling technology, which means it vertically pierces the skin with multiple needles to stimulate the skin’s natural collagen reproduction. It also allows fine channels to be created in the skin, so they can then carry up to 80 per cent more topical nutrients deep into your skin’s underlying cells. Together, these two actions promote skin rejuvenation (think lessened lines, wrinkles, skin sagging, stretch marks and scars) without any downtime. A. May. Zing.
UNIQUE ANTI-AGEING PRODUCT #5: SKIN PHYSICS LIPOSCULPT™ Ultrasonic Body Sculpting System
Annoyingly, cellulite seems to go hand-in-hand with ageing. This at-home system uses low frequency ultrasound waves to target fat deposits deep under the skin, which helps release stored fat, while infrared heat promotes the efficient removal of fatty build-ups, and a micro current massage helps firm and tone your body, too. Technical, yes, but also ingenious.
UNIQUE ANTI-AGEING PRODUCT #6: Skinvitals Hydraflex Hand
If you’re concerned with ageing, but aren’t paying any attention to your hands, you’re being rather silly. Your hands will always give away your age, so give them some attention, please. This unique cloth mask is specially designed for your hands, and is enriched with wonderful ingredients that’ll help smooth fine lines, fade age marks and leave your skin feeling delightfully soft.
UNIQUE ANTI-AGEING PRODUCT #7: Ageless Wonder™ Facial Toning and Lifting Device
You target your arm and leg muscles through exercise to keep them taut and toned, so why not stimulate your facial muscles, too? This device generates small, gentle electrical pulses, which activate underlying motor nerves in the skin and stimulate the facial muscles. The outcome is a younger, more lifted and strengthened appearance, along with softer, smoother, less lined skin.
UNIQUE ANTI-AGEING PRODUCT #8: Derma Research Infusion RX
Want the effect of Botox without using a needle? Give this nifty needle-less syringe a whirl. It has the ability to deliver potent ingredients to the skin; ones that will visibly plump creases, smoothing away and tightening wrinkles and fine lines. Better yet, it allows you to target the areas you dislike most, including between the brows, and corners of the mouth.
