How to Make Anti-Aging Cream at Home

If you are tired of trying to find the right anti-aging cream or you are balking at the cost of these products, you might want to make your anti-aging cream at home. This is easier than you might think, and you will not have to struggle to make this kind of beauty care product at home. You actually only need a few ingredients to make a really good anti-aging skin cream that will work perfectly to keep your skin hydrated and healthy every day.

Making your own skincare products can be a lot easier than you might think, and you can customize the ingredients and the scent of these products as well when you make them at home. There is nothing not to love about making your own skincare products, and you will be glad that you have this recipe on hand for a really luxurious anti-aging cream that won’t break the bank.

How to Make an Anti-Aging Skin Cream:

You will need these ingredients to make your anti-aging skin cream:

  • 1/8 cup avocado oil
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp beeswax
  • 1 tbsp shea butter
  • 5 drops vitamin E Oil
  • 3 Drops Lavender essential oil (optional)
  • 1 drop Frankincense essential oil (optional)
  • 1 tbsp arrowroot powder

To make your anti-aging cream, just follow these steps:

  1. Add all the ingredients together other than the arrowroot powder, the vitamin E oil, and the essential oils to a small mason jar.
  2. Place the mason jar into a small saucepan with water in it.
  3. Heat your pan over medium-high heat until the ingredients in the mason jar have melted.
  4. Allow the contents of your mason jar to cool slightly.
  5. Add the Vitamin E oil, essential oils, and the arrowroot powder and mix well.
  6. Secure the lid of the mason jar.
  7. Use as needed for beautiful skin!

This is a really simple process and one that will make a lovely anti-aging cream that has a nice texture and a really enjoyable scent. You will want to use this cream after you apply your toner. Most people use it in the evening before going to bed so that their face is nourished while they sleep.

You can opt to wash your skin in the morning, but this cream is so light that you should not need to do so. Your skin should absorb all of the cream overnight and be ready for makeup or sunscreen application in the morning after treatment.

Making Your Own Skincare Items is Easier Than You Might Think

Making your own skincare items can be a lot easier than you might think. The ingredients in most skincare items that are sold by stores are no different than the ingredients that you can source on your own. The nice thing about making your own skincare creams is that they will be fresh, and you can always make more with your own customized essential oils for new scent experiences. Always make sure that you use a high-quality oil for the base of your skincare products, and you will have great results with your creations!

Your wardrobe goes through cycles, but should you adapt skin cycling too?

Skin cycling is a skin-care routine that allows for “rest days” during the week.

Does your skin need to rest? If so, rest from what?

Let’s look more closely at this idea of skin cycling to see if it’s something you may want to do for your skin.

What is Skin Cycling?

Board-certified dermatologist Whitney Bowe created skin cycling routines for her patients for over a year before sharing them on social media.

The idea is that rather than performing the same skin-care routine over and over day in and day out, you instead cycle through the actives in your routine in a three- to four-day cycle.

This is mainly about using powerhouse ingredients like chemical exfoliants and retinol, but not using them all the time.

Bowe started doing this mainly to prevent the irritation that can come about when using chemical exfoliants (like glycolic acid) or retinol products. Using these products every day can cause skin irritation in many people. Skin cycling gives the skin a chance to rest and recover from these types of treatments, without having to stop using them completely.

In other words, you can use retinol for three or four days, then stop using them for the other three or four days of the week.

It’s sort of like intermittent fasting, which often has one eating all one wants on certain days, and significantly limiting calories on other days.

As to why Bowe started creating skin cycling routines for her patients, it’s likely because many of us are over-treating our skin these days.

Skin Cycling CV Skinlabs

Skin Cycling Grew Out of the Trend to Overtreat

Bowe told Byrdie.com that after treating thousands of patients for over a decade, she found the biggest mistake people made when it comes to skincare was: “…neglecting to build in nights for their skin barrier to recover.”

We have often talked about the skin barrier here at CV Skinlabs. It is the very outermost layer of skin that provides a barrier between you and the outside world. If you have a strong skin barrier, it protects you from environmental toxins, bacteria, and other microbes, while keeping moisture inside the skin so that it looks and feels its best.

Treatments like exfoliants, retinols, and others that help improve the appearance of the skin can also be hard on the skin barrier. When used carefully, they help slough off dead skin cells and diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. But when used too much, they can damage the skin barrier and make the skin look and feel worse.

Says Bowe, “People love their powerhouse products—like exfoliants and retinoids—and often believe more must be better. However, their skin often tells a different story when they come into the office with irritation and inflammation.”

After seeing many of her patients struggling with this, Dr. Bowe developed skin cycling. In her words, “The truth is you only need a few products used in a very deliberate way to drive amazing results.”

Bowe tried skin cycling on her patients for a year, then introduced the process on TikTok and Instagram. It quickly became a new beauty trend, which is why we’re talking about it today!

Should You Try Skin Cycling?

You may be wondering if you’re a good candidate for skin cycling. Should you try it?

The answer may be “yes” if:

  • You’re someone who has a lot of skin care products in your cupboard and you’re a little worried about maybe using too much.
  • You’re overwhelmed by all the products that are out there and you’re not sure where to start.
  • You’re struggling with skin irritation and inflammation.
  • You’re finding top-tier skin care products like retinoids are expensive and you want to extend their use.
  • You want to improve the condition of your skin but you’re hesitant about using hydroxy acids and retinols.
  • You’ve tried exfoliants and retinols before and had to stop because of irritation and breakouts.

The answer may be “no” if:

  • You’ve already worked hard to get your skin adjusted to using a powerful retinoid every night, and you’ve built up a tolerance—you’re not experiencing irritation.
  • You’re using an exfoliating product every day without irritation.
  • You have a skin condition like severe acne, eczema, rosacea, or psoriasis (it may still work for you, but check with your dermatologist first).

Skin Cycling Christmas

Tips for a Successful Skin Cycling Routine

Keep in mind that the goal when skin cycling is to improve the condition of your skin through powerful actives. Skin cycling drives the best results while minimizing irritation.

The standard skin-cycling routine as created by Dr. Bowe is a four-night schedule.

Night 1: Exfoliation Night

Dr. Bowe recommends using your most powerful actives at the beginning of the week, so exfoliation night may begin on Monday. Of course, it’s up to you to set up the cycle in a way that works best for your lifestyle. The important thing is to stick with the cycle days as closely as you can.

On the first night of the four-night cycle, thoroughly cleanse your skin, pat dry, then use your chosen exfoliant. This helps slough off dead skin cells and sets up your skin to better receive your active products. Serums and creams can better penetrate skin that lacks that hard layer of dead skin cells on top.

Dr. Bowe and many others recommend chemical exfoliants over physical ones. That means you’re using alpha- and beta-hydroxy acids like glycolic, malic, salicylic, and lactic acids to help slough off dead skin cells and reveal newer, younger-looking skin underneath.

Physical exfoliants, on the other hand, often contain rough particles in them that rub against the skin to slough off dead skin cells. These may include crushed nuts, crystals, sugar, salt, or beads. Physical exfoliation also includes the use of tools like brushes to exfoliate the skin.

The problem with physical exfoliation is that it can cause irritation, inflammation, and breakouts, particularly if you have sensitive skin. Chemical exfoliants are more gentle and are less likely to result in irritation.

Night 2: Retinoid Night

The second night of the cycle is devoted to retinoids. Retinol is a derivative of vitamin A that helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It speeds up cell turnover and helps you enjoy younger-looking skin. It’s one of the most powerful skin-care ingredients available for delaying the appearance of aging, but it can also be very irritating, particularly for sensitive skin.

This is why skin cycling can be so beneficial. It allows you to gain the benefits of retinol without having to suffer irritation. Many people stop using retinoids because they experience negative results, but skin cycling can often prevent the skin from reacting that way.

So on night two, apply your chosen retinoid product, then follow with your regular moisturizer. (We recommend our Calming Moisture to help prevent irritation and keep your skin feeling its best.) When choosing your retinoid product, consider whether you’ve used retinoids before. If you haven’t, use encapsulated retinol at a low concentration.

Note: If you have eczema, rosacea, or psoriasis, check with your dermatologist before using a retinol product.

Night 3 and 4: Recovery Nights

These nights are deemed “recovery nights” because they are intended to give the skin a chance to recover from the exfoliating and retinoid treatments. That doesn’t mean you leave skin bare on these nights. Instead, you focus on nourishing your skin and repairing the skin barrier so that it’s ready for the next cycle.

This is key to avoiding skin irritation and redness. On these nights, you can use your best recovery serum or moisturizer, apply a moisturizing mask, or even try skin slugging (which we outlined in this post).

We recommend using our Calming Moisture on both recovery nights. This antioxidant-rich moisturizer calms redness and deeply hydrates while repairing skin to boost radiance and create a healthy glow. It has soothing ingredients like glycerin, ceramides, and natural oils and butters.

Repeat

After your second recovery night, it’s time to repeat the cycle. If your skin reacts, you can add one or more recovery nights to your routine. If your skin appears to be responding well, on the other hand, you can continue the cycle as-is, or perhaps reduce your recovery nights to only one.

What Are the Benefits of Skin Cycling?

The main benefit of skin cycling is that it allows you to use exfoliants and retinoids without experiencing irritation. You should notice the following improvements:

  • Diminished appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Brighter, younger-looking skin
  • Reduced acne break-outs
  • Smoother, softer skin
  • A healed outer barrier that makes skin look stronger
  • Improved radiance

Most Effective Anti-Aging Treatments

by

The worst part of aging is ’looking’ aged. Who doesn’t wish they could retain their youthful skin as the years go by? But as fate would have it, fine lines, wrinkles, sagging skin, and sunken skin are all part of aging.

While you can’t look youthful forever, you can delay aging signs for a while by undergoing certain cosmetic procedures and anti-aging treatments. These procedures are ideal for people who don’t want to go under the knife, but still want to savor the look and feel of rejuvenated and young skin.

3 Most Effective Anti-Aging Treatments

Botox

Botox or botulinum neurotoxin is an injectable substance used to prevent the movement of muscles in the targeted area temporarily. The tightening of muscles reduces fine lines, wrinkles, and crow’s feet to make skin look more youthful. The minimally invasive treatment is done by many who want to undergo safe and effective anti-aging treatments to keep the signs of aging at bay.

The procedure is approved by the FDA, for the treatment of mild to severe frown lines in the middle of the eyebrows and crow’s feet. The results usually take about a week to become visible and stay around for around 3-4 months. Botox can be used in the glabella (the region between the eyebrows), and crow’s feet (the region around the eyes), as well as forehead frown lines, smoker’s lines, neck bands, sagging brows, and marionette lines.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are injections that reduce wrinkles and fine lines on the face. They can also plump thin lips, soften creases on the face, and remove or reduce the shadow of the lower lids, among other things, depending upon the kind of dermal filler you’ve chosen.

There are several types of dermal fillers, such as calcium hydroxylapatite (improves the plumpness of cheeks), hyaluronic acid (improves the appearance of acne scars, cheek depressions, frown lines, etc.), polyalkylimide (treats deeper wrinkles, plumps thin lips, and improve cheekbones and jawline), polylactic acid (fills lines caused due to laughter), polymethyl-methacrylate microspheres (treats wrinkles, folds, furrow, and fills out pitted scars). Which treatment is ideal for you? That can be determined by a professional at a Miami Aesthetic Clinic like Vida and Co.

Laser Treatments

Laser treatments use laser technology to penetrate the skin, reduce fine lines on the face, and promote facial rejuvenation. The treatment can be done using an ablative laser or a  non-ablative laser. An ablative laser can remove the outer layer of skin known as the epidermis and heat the underlying skin known as the dermis, leading to the growth of collagen. It can also be done with a non-ablative laser, which is less intense than the ablative laser, but nevertheless effective.

Laser resurfacing treatment with carbon dioxide laser  can reduce the look of wrinkles by a whopping 45%, per new studies. It can improve the skin’s overall appearance by treating minor flaws and skin irregularities like acne scars and blemishes. You would be able to enjoy smooth skin for about 3 to 5 years after undergoing the treatment. This period can be extended if you schedule maintenance treatment and touch-ups or get supplementary skin treatment. Some of the side effects of these types of anti-aging treatments are redness, itching, swelling, and a bit of pain. Not everyone is eligible to undergo this treatment, and it’s best to consult a professional to know whether or not you qualify for laser resurfacing.

“We go to the ends of the earth on a quest for the highest performing ingredients possible to ensure that our products do what they say they will do,” explained Elizabeth Lamont, Vice President of Marketing for La Prairie. In an in-depth interview, we discussed the history and evolution of the company, their commitment to quality and science, signature products that define the brand including the Skin Caviar Collection, and much more.La Prairie skin caviarElizabeth Lamont, La Prairie

Tell me a little bit about the founding of La Prairie. What was the moment, insight or experience that led to its creation?

In speaking about the brand’s creation, what people don’t realize is the genesis of La Prairie was a clinic which came to life in Montreux, Switzerland, in the 1930s, and was founded as a complete wellness and anti-aging clinic. It was the destination of the influencers of the day – with celebrities, royalty and nobility, the name La Prairie was whispered on their lips in the most influential circles. The brand La Prairie was a result of their desire to continue the treatments that they had at the clinic once they returned home, and ongoing requests for “I want these products” and “how can I continue to experience this at home”.

In 1978, we came to the market with products that were available for purchase and we’ve never looked back. We have realized that it’s not just royalty, celebrity and nobility who are interested in turning back the pages of time and extending their youthful experience, and so for almost 4 decades, we’ve brought that promise to an increasingly larger audience.

LaPrairie

With regard to the scientific foundation underlying these products, what exactly does that mean at La Prairie?

In terms of our scientific foundation, again it goes back to the clinic and the original anti-aging therapies which were offered there, and from the scientific innovations which were used. Today, and with that inspiration, we have bio-technically created our exclusive Cellular Complex which is at the core of all our skincare treatments products and really the foundation for our ability to diminish the effects of time. On top of that, we layer a number of ingredients answering the different concerns that our customers have, and really we go to the ends of the earth to find them.

 There is nothing that will stop our quest to find the highest performing ingredients. We never compromise on quality. In our formulation process, we never have to say “what if we substituted this for that”. We are always looking for the ultimate blend of ingredients in order to be able to provide the ultimate in an anti-aging solution to our customers.

What have been some of the products that have truly defined La Prairie as a brand of rich history and legacy all these years?

In terms of the products that really define us, the Skin Caviar Collection in our iconic cobalt blue packaging is readily identifiable as La Prairie. It began in 1987, when we referred to this ‘caviar phenomenon’ and when we found a way to encapsulate the caviar extract in a very lavish application treatment. It was audacious, and something only La Prairie could dare suggest – that you apply caviar to your skin. We were iconic in the industry, and highly visible on the retail floor. People would seek us out like a beacon in the department, that cobalt blue was and remains a unique color in the skincare space. The collection has evolved since then.

About a decade later, in 1998, we introduced our Skin Caviar Luxe Cream which to this day is our number one selling product, and the collection has continued to evolve.  Skin Caviar Liquid Lift is just what the name says – it’s like an instant face lift in a serum form.  Recently, we introduced the Skin Caviar Luxe Sleep Mask, which is very much a spa-like indulgent nighttime treatment that you brush on, leave on and go straight to bed. It’s like having an overnight lifting facial in a jar.

La Prairie

Apart from the Skin Caviar Collection, we are known for very specialist types of products, and I think specifically of our Cellular Power Infusion launched in 2010, which is a four-week energizing treatment at the cellular level within the skin. It’s like giving a boost – a surge if you will — to skin cells, and it’s a treat that you give yourself every three months.

Our Cellular Swiss Ice Crystal Dry Oil which was the first luxury anti-aging oil to come to the market. That again, merges our bio-technical origins, with ingredients that were found in the highest summits of the Alps. It also incorporates our Swiss Ice Crystal Complex – a blend of ingredients that work to address first signs of aging and to strengthen skin against today’s lifestyle and environmental stressors.

In 2014, our Cellular Eye Essence Platinum Rare joined a collection of three other platinum products. The Platinum Collection is one that offers ultimate rejuvenation regardless of skincare concerns, and again, it exemplifies the use of the rarest, most precious ingredients. The Cellular Eye Essence Platinum Rare is a serum that helps to make any eye cream used on top of it even more effective. In and of itself, it helps fight wrinkles, discoloration, and helps with firmness, lifting, and luminosity. Its moisture-patch technology then keeps your eye cream in place, so that surface treatment product goes to work in exactly the area in which it’s designed to perform.

Last year, we launched Anti-Aging Rapid Response Booster. ‘Rapid Response’ was really the key to the success of that product. With clinical trials that proved that in just two weeks, 100% of women saw a reduction in the depth, the length and the number of their wrinkles. It was a real game changer for us. The biggest launch in the company’s history all around the world, and we are continuing to see its performance grow in early 2016.

La Prairie

Finally, if we were in an elevator and you had to tell me what La Prairie stands for, how would you define the company and its offerings?

In a nutshell, La Prairie offers the most prestigious, the most high-performing skincare products in the marketplace. Our ‘Swissness’ is one of the things that sets us apart, with attributes of precision, purity and the artistic elegance of our packaging. Innovation of course, and we’ve talked about going to the ends of the earth on a quest for the highest performing ingredients possible to ensure that our products do what they say they will do (and then some) – that’s what keeps customers coming back to us. They also come back for the service that they experience with our beauty advisors at counter. it’s a very high touch, very personalized, very intimate relationship that builds loyalty and that has contributed to the legacy of our brand since the 1930s.

As we begin to age, we start thinking about the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles much more than when we are younger. Even as younger adults, we also think about taking preventative measures to help reduce the number of fine lines and wrinkles we will develop over our lifetime.

Unfortunately, many anti-aging wrinkle creams and serums are filled with a massive amount of toxic and dangerous chemicals. These chemicals, which we discuss in detail further down, can do so much more harm than good and are not worth the risk of using to prevent or treat those fines lines and wrinkles.

The Most Dangerous Ingredients in Anti-Aging Creams & Serums

Of course, we find parabens in anti-aging cream to keep them bacteria-free and to extend their shelf life. Parabens can mimic estrogen leading to an increase in breast cancer. Acrylamide can cause cancer cells and lumps when tested on mice and can likely do the same in humans as well. This ingredient is neurotoxic as well.

Fragrance is another common additive to most wrinkle creams. Fragrance is where cosmetics companies like to hide tons of chemicals and toxic ingredients. Companies are not required to disclose what is included in the term “fragrance,” so they can include an array of ingredients they want into that category making it an ingredient that should be avoided at all costs.

Additionally, most fragrances are stabilized with phthalates, which is a chemical linked to reproductive issues and birth defects when tested on animals. This is of particular concern if you are of reproductive age and want children soon or in the future.

Ethanolamines (diethanolamine, DEA, monoethanolamine, MEA, Triethanolamine, TEA) are found in some anti-aging creams and serums as well. They are used to balance the pH in your skin. This ingredient has been banned in Europe because it is a known human carcinogen and has many allergy issues in humans. Other side effects can include skin and eye inflammation, dry skin, and hypersensitivity.

Conclusion

We often do not think about what in our anti-aging cream. However, just like other makeup and beauty products, anti-aging creams have toxic and chemical ingredients that can do a lot of harm to the body and skin. In fact, many of these anti-aging products even contain more harmful ingredients because they need to be much more powerful to correct lines and wrinkles in the skin.

It is important to remember you need to search for an anti-aging cream that does not just promise to help you with your fine lines and wrinkles. You must also make sure the product uses mostly or all organic, natural, and healthy ingredients. There is no need to spend upwards of $100 on a conventional anti-aging cream or serum that can severely affect your health in the future.

Although many of the expensive conventional wrinkle creams on the market may work wonders, what other outcomes may come from the toxic ingredients in those creams? Does the improvement of wrinkles diminish the fact your increase in cancer rises with some of those same ingredients?

We certainly think not. Especially because there are wrinkles and anti-aging creams on the market that do just as wonderful of a job and only use natural and organic ingredients to smooth your lines away.

Take a look at your wrinkle cream now, analyze the ingredients, and see if you should replace your current jar with one of the 10 natural, organic, and clean options above. It could just save you from a future of health issues and worries.
