Anti-Aging Skincare Recommendations That Work

By Kelly Wilson

My mother handed me a tube of Kiehl’s Ultra Protection Eye Gel when she dropped me off at my college dorm freshman year. For many years, that—along with some SPF—was enough. I graduated, moved around the country for work and love, got married, had kids. And then suddenly, I was 40 and everything—and I mean everything—dropped.

As an elderstates woman here at Glossier, I’ve been asked for my perspective on the “anti-aging” vs “pro-aging” debate. The truth is, there’s a lot that’s great about hitting 40. I’m lucky enough to have a terrific partner and still-sweet kids who want to spend time with me, parents who are healthy and active, a wide network of loyal friends and brilliant colleagues, and an apartment big enough to host a dinner party. I’m established in my career and stimulated by my work and more confident and comfortable in my skin than ever before. But with age, that skin does need some help. And in that regard, I have no issue with “anti-aging”. At the end of the day, it’s about efficacy and finding products that provide needed benefits. I take inspiration from the role models we have who are aging gorgeously (Jennifer Connelly! Brigitte Macron! Kirsten Green!) and aim high.

Fortunately, my mother came before me, and not just because she had the foresight to offer me that little tube of Kiehl’s. She has inherently terrific skin, which for the most part I inherited. (Maybe we need a little help in the elasticity department. The rest I can’t complain about.) So, the tough part was reconciling myself to the fact that the issue was not about fixing some inherent issue, but rather about fixing an inherent life condition: aging. It is what it is, no matter what you call it.

So why not talk about it? This morning I met a 42-year old friend for breakfast. She’s a gorgeous LA girl: not a shred of makeup, the perfect messy topknot, killer bikini body. And she told me that she’d put on nine pounds over the course of the summer. Nine pounds, one summer! I couldn’t see them, but she insisted. Another dear friend, who’s hitting 50 but looks like an enviable 30, texted in crisis as she was shopping for her upcoming media tour: “I tried on outfits and I have weird new lumps. I have a Thass. No, it’s a Hass.” The struggle is real!

Back to the face. There are all sorts of beneficial products to try, and thankfully dieting isn’t the recommended path forward (more sagging!). In my experience—note to editors: and you are not old enough to disagree with me—there are a few products you absolutely need to use when you hit 40 (and that you should probably start using many years before you get there). I have a personal theory, not supported by any evidence, that my skin likes to be kept guessing, so I try to mix up my daily product regimen. But there are a few products I won’t live without:

My Clarisonic. I use it in the shower around 3x/week to enliven my skin and I just don’t feel as clean or luminous without it.

Tula’s Probiotic Cleanser. A mild but effective cleanser for everyday use in your morning shower. At night I prefer to get the makeup off with micellar water, Goop’s Luminous Melting Cleanser or Glossier’s Milky Jelly. Once a week I use Tula’s Exfoliating Treatment Mask—not a cleanser per se, but I feel renewed and pure when I rinse it off. And the Chok Chok Green Tea Toner is very brightening—you really can feel them working when applied.

Serums and face oils. I worked briefly at Goop and still rave about the Goop Enriching Face Oil. It’s great for more mature skin, as is their Revitalizing Day Moisturizer. (It doesn’t contain SPF, so that’s where Glossier’s Invisible Shield comes in.) This time of year, I use Skin Inc’s Encapsulated Licorice Serum—licorice and green tea in tiny seaweed capsules, plus antioxidants galore to protect aging skin. And have been on a collagen binge of late, adding bone broth powder (Wild Foods’ is particularly great) to my golden lattes and using Mizon’s Collagen 100 Serum. I was wrestling with some seasonal transition skin issues last month and in desperation sprung for a bottle of Vintner’s Daughter—we 40-somethings will try anything—before deciding that it would be waste to use it on irritated skin so I’ve stockpiled it for the winter. Will report back.

Masks, snails and other Korean delicacies. I have a workspace in Koreatown that I use for quiet thinking and working time, and I discovered my favorite mask shop on a 32nd street coffee run one afternoon. I try to sheet mask a couple of times a week, and am pretty agnostic about the masks I use—there are so many cute ones to try! But I have fallen hard for the Banobagi Vita Cocktail Silver Foil Mask. The results are indisputable. I get compliments on my skin every time I use them. I also adore Tonymoly’s Ferment Snail Cream Moisturizer and the companion eye cream as they’re super-rich and hydrating. The Tonymoly Intense Care Gold 24K Snail Hydro Gel Mask is also great—how can it not be, with all those things?

For now, that’s what I have to share—I think it’s working, and either way, I feel good about it. But now I have to ask the forty-something readers of ITG: I know you are out there. What products do you love? There are working moms here at Glossier, too, and we’d love to hear from you.

I Got Anti-Aging Lip Injections, And I’ve Never Looked Younger

By KellyWil

Posted From http://stylecaster.com/beauty/anti-aging-lip-injections/

OK, be honest—what comes to mind when you think of lip injections? Probably mixed images of Kylie Jenner, Courtney Love, and a pufferfish, right? And, hey, that’s fair, because fillers have gotten a pretty bad rap over the last few decades for being one of the most obvious (and most easily botched) of cosmetic procedures.

But thanks to two new, FDA-approved fillers that promise to deliver incredibly natural-looking results, lip injections are now growing in popularity as a preventive, anti-aging measure, rather than the va-va-voom lip plumper they’ve always been known as. And because I would very much like for my mouth to look young forever, I decided to test out the new fillers and see just how natural—or crazy—I would look.

I have to first say that thin lips were never much of a concern for me, so I really never saw myself getting injections. But, as Los Angeles dermatologist Annie Chiu (who is one of the first dermatologists in the country to use Refyne and Defyne, the latest fillers on the US market) pointed out when I spoke with her, “Injections are now more about maintenance, and less about enhancement.” According to Chiu, our lips start deflating when we hit 30, and then continue to thin out and head downhill from there—literally. Our mouths start losing structure as we age, which leads to down-turned lips, ‘marionette’ lines (the deep parenthesis-like wrinkles on either side of your mouth), and even bone loss at the jawline. “But if you soften those changes with fillers [early on], you change the visual cues of how you and other people perceive your age,” says Chiu. Basically, fillers are the new fountain of youth.

And just as Botox has slowly shifted from being the thing dads get during midlife crises to the thing twenty-somethings get to prevent wrinkles, lip fillers are now being recommended to keep mouths looking young, and it’s all thanks to Refyne and Defyne. The new fillers (which have been used in Canada and Europe for years, but have just been approved by the FDA) are hyaluronic-based formulas, which gives them a new ability to blend in with your own collagen and flex naturally beneath your skin, without that stiff, “did she just get her lips done?” look.

Despite the glowing promises, though, I asked Chiu to start me off with only the tiniest bit of filler, just in case the process went horribly, horribly wrong. Chiu started by correcting the scaffolding of my face, injecting Defyne (used for filling deep-set lines) into my marionette lines, the corners of my lips, and around my jaw, before injecting Refyne (used for plumping fine lines and folds) into four quadrants around my lips, using a long, tiny tube inserted beneath my skin to position the injections further from my actual lips, which helps prevent crazy bruising and swelling.

It sounds awful, but the prick of the needle felt like any other—not exactly pleasant, but not particularly painful, either. That is, until she directly injected filler into my lips in a few spots, which really, really hurt. Thankfully, the whole process was over rather quickly, and by the end of it, Chiu had injected less than 3/5 of a teaspoon into my face. In fact, the changes were so subtle, only Chiu, her assistant, and I could pinpoint what had gone down in that office, and only if we stared really closely at my mouth.

After the appointment, it took a few days for my lips to feel like themselves again, though I suspect those feelings were primarily psychosomatic—not even my best friend could tell I had anything done just hours after leaving the doctor’s office, which was exactly the effect I was going for. It’s been three weeks since my appointment, and mouth still has totally natural movements, with only the subtlest of extra smoothness, which I’m pretty sure only I can notice.

But even if I can’t see my fillers (which is a good thing), I like knowing that I have a new anti-aging strategy in place for the future. Yes, it kind of sounds like bullshit, but you can’t argue with research, which shows that these types of injections really do have a preventative effect on aging. “Studies have shown that treating the lips, the areas around the lips, and the smile lines with fillers may actually prevent wrinkle detention,” says Chiu, “So the process is preventative in that it acts like a mechanical force [against deep-set wrinkles].”

And while some people might scoff at using their rent money on something so subtle (a treatment like mine costs about $700, and lasts about a year, max), I personally see the value in keeping my 20-year-old face shape and smile for the rest of my life, if possible. Does it mean I’ll have to skip a few nights out during the year to afford subsequent treatments? Abso-fricken-lutely. But as I see it, all of the sleep I’ll get and the drinks I’ll skip during those nights will pack an anti-aging bonus all their own.
