Even though spring is peeking around the corner, it’s not quite here just yet. Winter is still in the driver’s seat, and it’s important to keep our skin moisturized, hydrated and healthy so that when spring does finally arrive, our skin will thank us for it.
Some people switch up their moisturizing routines depending on which season is currently in full-swing. I don’t know about you guys, but I’m definitely one of those people. Winter is one of the prime seasons when we tend to forget to take care of our skin ( I admit I’ve been guilty of this myself ).
I have found an amazing moisturizer which has helped my skin look its absolute best during these hard winter months: Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Anti Wrinkle Cream.
Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream Anti-Wrinkle Day Cream available at Just4Girls.pk Not only is it super hydrating, it’s been clinically proven ( results taken from independent clinical studies conducted between 2014-2015 ) to reduce the appearance of fine-lines and wrinkles within fourteen days.
You’re probably looking at the price tag and thinking, “okay, Kat…seriously? That’s a lot of money for one jar of face cream. What gives?” Honestly, guys, I said the same thing to myself. However, one thing I had to remind myself is that unlike makeup and cosmetics, skin care can run a little more money wise depending on the ingredients, processes and issues the particular product addresses.
The more advanced the formula, the more it’s going to cost. The good news is, most of your prestige brands of skincare deliver the results they promise and they’ve undergone clinical studies and trials for months, even years before being sent to market. So essentially, you’re paying for the time, effort, process and ingredients which go into creating these products.
The truth about makeup is, most lipsticks, mascaras, eyeshadows have similar formulas and ingredients, the biggest differences being what format the product is presented in ( liquid versus powder ) and whether the product is Vegan and Cruelty free. Other than that, most makeup is going to be very similar. This isn’t the case with skin care. Each line is different, each line offers its own blend of skin benefits, and each line has its own flow.
Also, skincare can’t always be mass produced like cosmetics and makeup can be. Many of these rare ingredients only thrive, grow or bloom at certain times of the year in limited quantities. Also, good skincare companies who follow ethical and moral guidelines only harvest a small amount so as not to destroy the ingredients’ natural ecosystem and greedily take more than is needed. That’s another reason the cost factor tends to go up for these products.
That being said, this Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream contains a blend of Padina Pavonica ( commonly known as “peacock’s tail,” this is a brown algae found in the Atlantic Ocean and Mediterranean Sea ), Ginkgo Biloba ( this extract isn’t just for brain function, it’s also used in anti-aging creams to promote regeneration), Chlorella ( a green algae used for regeneration, purifying and to fight free radicals), as well as Rose and Mimosa absolutes.
What is pro-collagen? Pro-Collagen is a polypeptide which we naturally have in our skin and which helps us with regeneration up to around age twenty. As we age, our bodies lose collagen, elastin and sometimes the ability to regenerate. This is why we tend to get lines, wrinkles and our skin loses firmness. Marine Pro-Collagen, like the blend found in this Elemis Moisturizer, helps restart the collagen and elastin production process, and its hydrating properties also help your skin appear and feel firmer and have a more youthful appearance.
This is how skincare products such as this one can assist in helping your skin feel its best, even during these cold winter months. Honestly, it’s worth it and one good way to look at skincare is to treat it like an investment.
Not sure if this is the right moisturizer for you? That’s perfectly okay; we are all different and have different areas we wish to target when it comes to skincare. The main thing is to find a product which works for you! However, if you want to try out this product and the rest of the Elemis skincare line, check out the collection at Just4Girls.pk!
