Ageing skin: wrinkles, fine lines, saggy skin, and loss of firmness

As we are getting older, our skin shows signs of ageing: wrinkles, fine lines, saggy skin, and loss of firmness of our skin are all unfortunate yet unavoidable symptoms of ageing skin. Many of you ask us what suitable treatments for ageing skin and its symptoms are. We cannot stop time, but we can actually slow the ageing process down by maintaining a healthy lifestyle and focusing on good skincare. Luckily, some great skincare ingredients help protect your skin against premature ageing. We have a couple of unique products in our collection specifically designed to target premature facial skin ageing.

LE YOUTH SÉRUM FOR A YOUTHFUL 
GLOW ON YOUR FACE

Face serum Le Youth Sérum is the only serum you need for beautiful, healthy-looking skin with a youthful glow: a beautiful blend of vegetable oils, algae, and plant extracts with unique properties that work together against skin ageing symptoms. The algae extract restores skin elasticity [1] and fights the loss of firmness, and together with the Acmella Oleracea extract, it reduces the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles [2]. The gorgeous blend of plant oils moisturizes the skin while the vitamins and antioxidants protect against premature skin ageing [3,4,5] and cares for looser, saggy skin. This lovely fusion of plant-based ingredients and the seductive scent of vanilla is the perfect way to indulge daily and to leave your skin with the ultimate glow.

LA VITAMINE C POWDER: 
A NATURAL FACELIFT

Our La Vitamine C Powder is a true superfood for the skin: also, older, looser, saggy skin will love this natural skincare product! It consists of the purest and most effective form of vitamin C [6], combined with the strong antioxidant ferulic acid. Vitamin C is essential for collagen formation [7], which tightens the skin, and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles [8]. It also brightens the skin, reduces the appearance of hyperpigmentation [8,9], which often occurs in ageing skin, restores the skin barrier, and is a powerful antioxidant that protects the skin from premature ageing.
