Many years ago when I was lurking around a male-centric forum, I came across a quote along the lines of, “If you want to know what a girl will look like in 20 years’ time, look at her mother.” Before you shrug it off, let’s just say that there’s indeed some truth to this statement (unless you’re not your mother’s biological daughter).
To set the record straight, I absolutely adore my mother and we both share the same interests in food. But much as I respect her, I wished I hadn’t genetically inherit her physical traits. Back then, I was slightly on the plump side (no thanks to my hormonal imbalance that caused my sudden weight gain) and I was so worried that I would become rotund like my mother in years to come. Determined to rewrite my fate, I went on an extreme diet to put myself back on the lower end of the weighing scale. While it was relatively easy for me to shed some weight, there are still issues that can’t be resolved with just a snap of the fingers. At 57, my mother has very dry skin and an obvious naso-labial fold. Upon closer inspection, you’d also be able to see enlarged pores and fine lines too.
Now that I’ve taken a sneak peak of my future self, of course I would want to take preventive measures to ensure these won’t occur when I hit my 50’s. But what would be potent enough to win my fight against these face monsters? Without a doubt, SK-II (one of the top brands in the world when it comes to anti-aging products) comes to mind! In my previous post, I talked about the first half of the new duo from SK-II which I thought was already pretty impressive on its own. But in order to reap the full benefits of the Radical New Age Complex technology, it has to be paired with the R.N.A. Power Radical New Age Cream!
Upgraded with the aforementioned groundbreaking anti-aging technology, this cream (which functions as a moisturiser) addresses not just your most severe aging concerns, but holistically treats all 10 signs of aging including loss of firmness, dryness, fine lines and wrinkles, sallowness, lack of resilience, visible pores, sagging skins, lack of radiance, roughness and loss of tightened facial contours. When used in tandem with the essence, all these 10 signs would be improved, and the firmness you regain would be greater than the firmness you lose over 15 years.
Like the essence, this velvety cream is also formulated with a light and muted natural olive fragrance. You don’t need to apply a lot of the product on your face for it to work its magic too. All you need is a teeny-weeny amount of the cream (about 1cm in diameter) on your palm followed by a dot on the forehead, cheeks and chin. Lastly, gently massage the cream all over the face until absorbed. If used appropriately, a small 50g tub like this is definitely going to last you a long time.
However, due to its thicker and creamier texture, this would leave the skin with a slightly tacky and slick finish (you can tell from the soft shine on the forehead) even though it does help to keep the skin hydrated. But if you could ignore this minor aspect of the cream, this product actually makes a brilliant addition to your skincare regimen. The first time I wore it, I could feel the cream penetrate my skin. No waiting time is required as the effect is immediate. How awesome is that? And apparently, this cream helps to tighten the naso-labial fold (at least after four weeks of use) too!
Nonetheless, as with other SK-II products, the R.N.A. Power series do not come cheap. But if you can afford them, I’d really recommend you to go for the smallest options first to see if they suit your skin. I’m sure you’ll love them as much as I do!
Remember, it’s never too early to begin your battle against wrinkles!
