There are hundreds of anti aging skin products popping up everywhere making it very difficult to know which are the most effective. There are those that claim to eliminate wrinkles and age spots, some that claim to firm skin, and those that will make you look ten years younger. Do they really work?

Some do, most don’t.  One thing I do know from doing extensive research, is that many of the ingredients found in the most popular anti aging skin products are actually harmful both inside and out. Are you using a healthy skin care routine with only natural anti aging products? If not, you may be adding ten years to your looks.

Fragrance, parabens, propylene glycol, artificial dyes, formaldehyde-based preservatives, mineral oil, TEA and DEA, all ingredients found in thousands of skin care and beauty products are known skin irritants. They may irritate and dry your skin or in many cases cause skin reactions sometimes immediately and sometimes only after long term use. So where do you turn for a truly effective anti aging skin treatment?

Your best bet is to turn to wholesome, natural skin care companies that make products with the purest ingredients, proven to be effective in reversing the signs of aging. Here are some new, natural, innovative and effective products coming to the market today….

Own is a company dedicated to empowering beautiful skin. They take a complete approach towards skin-health that combines their clinically proven patented CLA formulations and unique skin diagnostic tool giving women complete solutions for truly healthy beautiful skin.

Own contains Conjugated Linoleic Acid plant based technology designed to work with your body’s chemistry and 3 main layers of skin. Clinically proven to enhance collagen levels, strengthen the skin barrier to retain more moisture and increase the skin’s metabolism to produce newer skin cells for softer, smoother, and genuinely younger-looking healthy skin.

I was lucky enough to get the entire line of products from them recently and while I haven’t used the line long enough to see any dramatic results, I can say that I can’t stop touching my face especially after using the Own Firming Silk Serum. It truly feels like silk!


Dr. Sears has been researching the benefits of telomeres for years and has now discovered a way to apply this Nobel Prize-winning breakthrough to skin care. He has developed an extract called teprenone which Dr. Sears says will protect your skin’s DNA and expand the life of skin cells and has made it his key ingredient in Revive DNA Rejuvenation Cream.

Revive skincare also contains hyaluronic acid which drops off as we age. HA sinks deep in your skin tissue plumping skin enhancing volume and elasticity.  And finally squalane, a pure essential oil which has been growing in popularity because of its ability to soften your skin and make it glow.

This natural anti aging treatment has been shown in clinical trials of women a 100% increase in the level of moisture in their skin, 100% saw age spots improve significantly, 75% experienced an improvement in skin tone and elasticity, 75% felt roughness and fine lines faded noticeably. Those are some impressive numbers!

Another growing anti aging skin product that caught my eye is ManukaSea. ManukaSea Magic, extremely popular in Australia and New Zealand for its effective anti aging properties is now being offered for sale online in the US. This natural skin care regime is made with the best natural ingredients including Unique Manuka Honey for skin and Bio Nutrient Seaweed, rich in vitamins A1, B1, B2, B6, B12, C, E, K, pantothenic acid, folic acid, niacin along with Coconut Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, and Vitamin E.
