The Picture of Dorian Gray…

Oscar Wilde was on to something.  In theory, this is a brilliant concept, a portrait aging in a closet while the subject’s youth remains intact.  In practice however it’s not really something that’s going to happen anytime soon.  Of course if you think that it is something remotely plausible, anti-aging is the least of your worries…

Cut to today’s hot topic, you got it…anti aging!  Origin’s Plantscription line of skin care. Yes, I am talking about the entire line from Cleanser to Serum to Moisturizer and that includes eyes and face.  I have yet to endorse a full line from any company but I have to tell you I use it all and I love the results I’m seeing.

To start with, the cleanser is incredibly gentle and doesn’t dry out your skin.  It also doesn’t leave behind a sticky film like some cleansers do.  That super dry feeling we often associate with clean skin is in fact what is speeding up the aging process.  Your skin shouldn’t be stripped of moisture, it should be hydrated so that your skin looks supple and well, more youthful.  Think of your face like a sponge, when it is devoid of water it’s hard and rough but saturated in water and suddenly the same sponge is softer and plumper, like good skin should be.

Now for the big guns, the Serum and Moisturizer with SPF 25 protection (which comes in an oil free version by the way).  Serum works in tandem with your moisturizer, essentially serum preps the skin to allow the moisturizer to really do it’s thing.  This one happens to protect your skin from further environmental damage (harmful UV rays) and improve your skins firmness.

In my life I’ve laughed, I’ve cried and I’ve earned every line on my face.  Every tear and giggle has made me who I am today, and I am grateful for all of it (well the laughter at least) but that doesn’t mean I can’t strive to have the healthiest skin possible.

So say goodbye to dry sponges and hello to anti-aging amazement!

Enjoy…xo Elisa
