Which woman would not wish for her aging process to slow down, just a little bit? No? Not everyone? Fair enough. Aging is a natural process that every woman would like to go through gracefully. I’m sure we can we agree on that?
One of the major signs of aging is sagging skin is especially in the jaw and neck, which we call the Y- contour. This is why there is so much focus in the aesthetic world to try to find solutions that help maintain the youthfulness of the face.
Dr. Lillian Khan, Pond’s Arabia Brand Expert says:
We develop sagging due to several reasons such as loss of collagen and elasticity, which cause loss of firmness and smooth texture of the skin. The loss of fat pads of the face that gives its fullness, and loss of bone and muscle mass are some of the other reasons of sagging. All these changes cause the skin to sag and this appears more obvious in the lower part of the face due to the effect of time and gravity. Luckily, there are several options to take care of the skin and delay this aging effect.
There are several clinical procedures and different technologies that focus on the Y-contour and help maintain the youthfulness in the face. Chemical peels, vampire face lift, and fillers are a few examples of these types of procedures. However, all these procedures have possible side effects, are quite expensive and sometimes even give disappointing results.
To avoid these, taking care of skin at home from the beginning becomes the first line of defense. Choosing the right products that help boost the skin with firming components is recommended. There are several products in the market which use the usual active ingredients that help lift and firm the skin such as retinol, retinol boosters, vitamin C, antioxidants, and collagen.
There are certain new ingredients that have shown increased improvement for the Y-contour such Polyimide and Lipodipeptide.
Of course Dr. Khan recommends the Pond’s Age Miracle™ Firm & Lift skin care range, which has the above mentioned ingredients.
She goes on to say:
The NEW Pond’s Age Miracle™ Firm & Lift range provides powerful anti-aging formulations that strengthen and tighten fibres from the inside to reveal a smoother, firmer and lifted y-contour on the outside. The three main products under this range are the Pond’s Age Miracle™ Firm & Lift Face & Neck Lifting Day Cream, Targeted Lifting Serum Massager and the Eye Contour Lifter with each product targeting key areas of the face that women are usually worried about.
I haven’t tried the Pond’s Age Miracle range but I have tried their various face washes, including the Anti Aging one, the Oil Control Foam and the Smooth Pores Foam. I believe that even using the right face washes helps your skin glow.
They both work well, especially the oil control. I find it particularly helpful in the summer time when your skin sweats a lot more and your sebaceous glands are in overdrive.
Pond’s skincare is available at Carrefour, Geant, LuLu and other major supermarkets in Dubai.
