TruAge Skin AGE Therapy Gel

As a 33 year old with a magnified mirror in her bathroom, I'm constantly obsessing and spotting new wrinkles and skin blemishes. It doesn't help that I have a newborn at home that doesn't like sleeping much, so my skin is so tired looking these days. I'm open to trying any new products that help with aging skin.

I recently learned about TrueAge Skin AGE Therapy Gel, created by Morinda. Morinda is the leading creator of anti-aging beverages, supplements and skin care products, and most recently, this new gel.

AGE stands for advanced glycation end-products, which causes skin damage, also known as glycation. Do you know what glycation is? If not, don't worry, I had to Google it. Glycation occurs when excess sugars in the bloodstream bind with proteins in the skin, causing stiffness and inelasticity, while impairing the skin's protective function. AGE Therapy Gel helps to improve the skin's appearance while boosting its protective layer.

According to Kira Davis, Morinda's global product development manager, "glycation is responsible for virtually every sign of aging and can have a devastating effect on skin." TruAge Skin AGE Therapy Gel is created from the best ingredients found in Morinda's flagship AGE-fighting product, TruAge Max.

AGE Therapy Gel works well along side any skin care routine. I have really sensitive skin and I had no issues when I tested it out. The gel is really light weight and absorbs very quickly. Here are the key benefits:

It Protects...The topical TruAge Max blend is compromised of ingredients that create a protective barrier against AGE accelerators such as free radicals, environmental damage and moisture loss

It Soothes...Oat kernel extract and beta-glucan provide a soothing effect on skin, reducing redness and irritation, as well as helping to strengthen the skin's barrier function.

It Repairs...Carnosine has been shown to block AGE damage, protect minor cuts, scrapes and burns, and relieve dry, chapped skin. It also protects and relieves chafed and irritated skin. 

So what do you think? Would you be interested in trying this out? AGE Therapy Gel is available now exclusively at Morinda.com at a special introductory price of $42. Check back tomorrow for a special giveaway from Lipgloss Break!

Nexxus Youth Renewal Elixir

Years of highlighting and sun have definitely taken a toll on my hair. At 31 years old, I've been shifting my focus away from products that strip my hair clean and enhance my highlights, to products that help reverse the signs of aging. This is why I was excited to try out Nexxus Rejuvenating Elixir from their Youth Renewal line.

The Nexxus Youth Renewal line has a shampoo, conditioner, dry shampoo, blow dry spray and an elixir. Each product is suppose to help combat 8 signs of aging hair: volume loss, breakage, roughness, less shine, dryness, brittleness, unruliness and loss of color vibrancy. I experience both brittleness and dryness the most, and I can tell that I am starting to have volume loss.

After washing my hair, I followed the bottle's directions and I put 4 drops (okay, maybe 5) in my hair, focusing on both the roots and the ends. I combed through to make sure it was evenly distributed and then I dried my hair. I could definitely tell a difference in how my hair dried. My hair looked shinier even after one use, so I'm looking forward to starting using this 3-4 times a week to get all of the benefits. Two added bonuses: it's small enough to travel with and has a fun fruity scent.

Along with anti-aging products, you can also do the following to help protect your hair:
 - Wear a hat or scarf if you'll be outside in the sun for awhile.
 - Don't wash your hair every day. I know it sounds weird, but it's good for hair to build up natural oils.
 - Frequently trim your hair to get rid of dead ends.
 - Go easy on the hot styling tools. If you have to blow dry and straighten your hair, use a heat protection product.
