We are often asked, “Which is the one product I must try?” and the answer is always our luminosity-inspiring Intensive Moisturizer. If you could take just one thing to a desert island– it would have to be a great moisturizer. Not only does our VENeffect Anti-Aging Intensive Moisturizer promote youthful looking skin, but it can also slow and even reverse the signs of aging, as well as inspire the glow of healthy skin.
Step 1: Choose the right moisturizer
If you are getting everything you need from the moisturizer you are using now – GREAT! Keep using it. But if you feel you are seeing changes in your skin that need more attention, or simply want to explore other options, it’s time to try a new moisturizer. The reality is, that our skin is changing throughout the month and as we age. What worked for us in our 20s may not be enough in our 30s, 40s, 50s and beyond. In fact, as we mature our skin’s needs mature with us. The good news is that there are many options to choose from and some great technologies that go beyond just simple moisturization to provide truly effective anti-aging benefits.
For women, the shifts and changes in hormones throughout the month and as we age create a need to replenish lost collagen and elasticity in the skin. This is the reason why our founders, sisters Cecil Booth and Dr. Rebecca Booth created the VENeffect Anti-Aging Skin Care line. You can read more about hormonal aging and our approach here.
The first product they developed in the line is the must-have VENeffect Anti-Aging Intensive Moisturizer. It is designed to be used day and night – and is ideal for all skin types. It is called “Intensive” because it has the highest level of their proprietary phytoestrogen technology that inspires collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid production naturally! The result? Luminous, younger looking skin.
Step 2: Start with a clean canvas
Now that you have found the ideal moisturizer for the changing needs of your skin, it is time to use it! Your moisturizer will work better if you start with freshly washed skin. Both morning and evening make a quick ritual out of cleansing your skin with a gentle, non-drying cleanser. Cleansing your face ensures that you wash away any impurities from your skin, and rinsing with warm water preps the skin to take best advantage of the wonderful moisturizer to follow.
Step 3: Be generous with your moisturizer
We often hear from clients that they haven’t even started using their moisturizer because they have so much of another product to finish. Don’t waste another day! You’ve selected and invested in a moisturizer – open it and use it, and use it generously – this is not the time to skimp. If you are worried about having excess of another product – alternate them, one morning and one at night. There is no right answer for what is the exact amount of moisturizer to use, but you will know by the results on your skin. Start with a generous, quarter-sized dollop and use all over your face, as well as your neck & chest area. There are fabulous products targeted for the skin of the neck, and it is up to you if you are willing to use separate products for each area, but regardless, be generous and get the benefits of the moisture lasting all day long.
As with any anti-aging skin care regimen such as VENeffect Co-Founder Cecil Booth’s 5-Minute Skin Care Routine, there are many wonderful, targeted treatments that augment a great moisturizer, including serums, lip and eye treatments as well as fabulous exfoliants and cleansers. The most important of all is a core moisturizer – with that as your base, you have the foundation for younger looking skin.
