This new aging collection has been called the most amazing products that Arbonne has ever developed! Except for the Re9 Advanced system that has been out for several years. And when Arbonne makes a new product, you can be sure it’s going to be Amazing!! Again, all of these products are plant-based without any of the harsh chemicals that many of the store bought products have in them.
The best part about this collection is, the use of Retinol has been replaced with a plant-based product called Bakuchiol! See the chart below that shows the difference between Bakuchiol vs. Retinol.
What Is Aging Well?
We’d be remiss if we said that aging well meant to only care for the appearance of our skin. It’s so much more — it is embracing what is naturally and beautifully yours, thoughtfully fueling your body, staying engaged with personal growth, and empowering yourself by doing what you love. Aging well is about mindfully using your daily habits or yearly goals to move towards your best self — mind, body and skin.
Everything starts with mindset. Without a positive mindset, stress can cause emotional and hormonal disruption, which often can come out through the appearance of your skin. In addition, stress can make you more likely to skimp on your healthy habits and lose focus on your overall well-being. Pursuing a positive mindset, prioritizing mental health, and remaining confident in your self-image can allow you to consider your years of aging differently: You are not getting old, but gaining years of purpose, growth, and inspiring hope in others.
OKAY, BUT HOW?
It really all starts with our mindset. Our perception of everything we experience is impacted by lots of things including stress and emotions, but underneath it all is that little voice in our heads. So many times, we are harsh and even cruel in our judgment of ourselves. We say things in our heads to ourselves that are nastier than anything we would ever say to anyone else out loud. That’s something that you can start to adjust right now! Shift your mindset to kindness and be good to yourself. Stop the negative talk and make a choice to find something nicer to tell yourself. When you start to feel good about yourself, your perception of everything, including what you see every day in the mirror, can shift.
Let’s Talk Body!
The air we breathe, the food we eat, the place we live, the job we do, the sun’s radiation, medications that we need to take, chemicals that we are exposed to, and pollutants all have an effect on the aging process.
How does this happen? These things can expose us to free radical damage which can negatively impact our cells and their ability to repair themselves.
Free radicals are molecules with an uneven number of electrons causing them to easily react. Think of rusting iron — the rust is oxidative stress triggered by free radical damage. Oxidative stress is the imbalance between the exposure to free radicals and exposure to and consumption of antioxidants. It can contribute to or even enhance things you can see, but wish you couldn’t, like wrinkles.
Beauty From Within
Probiotics: The digestive system naturally has billions of bacteria, like the skin. Probiotics provide strains of beneficial bacteria to help support the digestive tract.
Digestive Enzymes: Help the body process foods effectively and the digestive system function normally.
Hyaluronic Acid: Helps retain moisture to support and maintain smooth-looking skin.
Biotin: Helps support and maintain healthy skin, hair and nails.
Vitamin C: Helps provide antioxidant protection and support collagen production.
Healthy Fats: Minimize trans and saturated fats that could contribute to an unhealthy vascular system, which may impact other parts of the body, such as the skin. Instead, switch to healthy fats like olive oil, coconut oil, avocados, nuts, and omega-3-rich seeds.
Let’s Talk Skin
No matter what our age, we all want smooth, soft skin that looks radiant and healthy. But the reality is, our skin is aging every day.
FACT: It’s easier and less expensive to target the signs of aging by caring for your skin at an early age than trying to minimize the signs of aging after they appear on your face. Here’s how:
• Stay away from harsh cleansers that can cause over-drying of the skin.
• Use products that are appropriate for your skin type and needs.
• Rain or shine, help protect your skin every day with a broad spectrum SPF product.
• Don’t forget your neck and chest. While you’re logging in cell phone time, your neck starts to show premature folds and wrinkles thanks to the angle you hold your head.
• Drink plenty of water throughout the day to keep your skin hydrated from the inside out.
Collagen is a protein found in muscles, bone, skin, ligaments, the digestive system, and blood vessels. It’s what gives our skin its elasticity and it acts like glue for our ligaments. Our collagen stores naturally decline with age, which can cause our skin to show changes including wrinkles, sagging and decreased elasticity. Even before we can see these changes, lower collagen and hyaluronic acid levels can begin to change the integrity of our skin’s structure.
Elastin is the “rubber band” that gives skin strength and bounce. But as we lose elastin over time, our extracellular matrix weakens. This causes fine lines and wrinkles, particularly where we make repeated facial expressions. It’s important to help support our skin’s extra cellular matrix because it’s the essential physical scaffolding for the skin and all its cells.
For The Guys
Men’s and women’s skin was not created equal. A man’s skin has unique needs and requires special care that differs from a woman’s, in order to keep it looking and feeling its best.
Thickness: Men’s skin is about 25% thicker than women’s. This thickness can result in rougher, duller-looking skin.
Oil: Post-puberty, sebum or oil production becomes more frequent in males than females due to testosterone.
Sensitivity: Men tend to have more sensitive facial skin. Regular shaving gradually breaks down the hydrolipidic film, a protective layer on the skin’s surface. This reduces the skin’s natural lubrication and ability to protect itself from external elements.
Collagen Density: Men’s skin has a higher collagen density than women. For both men and women, collagen production starts to decline rapidly after age 50.
So for the complete package, Arbonne suggests that the new AgeWell and the 30 Days to Healthy Living ASVP be packaged together to get the best benefit!
