Earlier this month, I had attended an event; The launch of the Youth Eternity by Himalaya. Youth Eternity is an anti-ageing skincare range comprising of a day cream, a night cream and an under eye cream. Certainly, everyone knows about Himalaya; Their herbal range and the baby products are popular among the masses. As soon as, I heard about their new range of products, I was thrilled. They usually come up with interesting products and their new anti-ageing range, Youth Eternity by Himalaya also falls under the same category.
At the event, we were given information about skin ageing, the factors that bring about skin ageing and also the effects of skin ageing. Additionally, we were given a few tips on skin care and anti-ageing. Imagine how much we would like to go back to our teenage years without any wrinkles or lines. While going back to be a teenager is not something that is feasible (yet at least) going back on the wrinkles and the lines are something you can achieve. Once you reach the age of 25, the first signs of ageing appear in the form of fine lines. Over time wrinkles appear; your face becomes thinner and then the skin starts losing its elasticity.
Other than the usual environmental factors like pollution, sun exposure, smoking and stress, there are also a few other factors that contribute to skin ageing. You usually wouldn’t count these towards skin ageing but they play an important part in the appearance of wrinkles and skin laxity. Tanning, not enough hydration or sleep, food high in sugar, obesity and harsh scrubs all contribute in one way or the other.
How to lessen the Effects of Skin Aging
Even if some of the factors are out of our control like pollution and getting older, you can buckle up in most of the factors and lessen the appearance of ageing on our skin.
- Stop smoking. Period. Just stop smoking.
- Reduce alcohol intake. Besides the fact that alcohol dehydrates the skin, it also makes us look older.
- Well-balanced diet.
- Proper exercise regimen.
- Avoid harsh scrubs.
- Use healthy oils; On your food as well as on your skin.
- Go for foods rich in Omega 3’s like walnuts, flaxseed, chia seed and fish.
Best Anti Aging Tips
If you have hit 25, not only do you have to introduce a most effective anti-ageing skincare routine in your daily life, you also need to follow certain tips to keep your skin looking healthy and supple.
- Add Vitamin A aka Retinoids in your routine. Though a prescribed retinoid is always the best, you can go for night creams with retinol. Retinol is best for skin affected by sun damage like uneven skin tone, dark spots and fine lines.
- Avoid weight gain and add an exercise routine even if it’s a 20 min walk.
- If you do not have a skin care routine, it’s high time you start one.
- Add antioxidant-rich food like bell peppers.
- Skip the harsh face wash and go for a gentle cleanser.
Never Too Late to Start an Anti Aging Skin Care Regimen
You do not have a proper skin care routine and already noticing a few fine lines and wrinkles, worry not; it’s never too late. Even smoker who stop smoking notices a healthy skin in a few days.
Look for the best ageing products and add them to your skin care regimen. Protect your skin from sun damage and let it heal. Do not forget your sunscreen when you leave your house. If the signs of skin ageing are bothering you, you could always consult a dermatologist for laser treatments.
Youth Eternity by Himalaya Skincare Range
Youth Eternity by Himalaya uses the cutting edge Plant Stem Cell Technology. It contains the remedial and regenerative properties of the stem cells of Edelweiss — a fairly uncommon flower found on the inclines of the Alps. It also contains concentrates of Rose Myrtle, Fire Flame Bush and Cipadessa baccifera. These embed the stem cells rich in antioxidants on your face which heals the damage to the skin and restores supple and youthful looking skin.
Youth Eternity by Himalaya Day Cream with SPF 15
Youth Eternity by Himalaya Day Cream is a leap forward in light of anti-ageing with Plant Stem Cell Research and Herbal Actives. Edelweiss Plant Stem Cells have antioxidants, while Woodfordia, Rose Myrtle, and Cipadessa manage to bring about younger looking skin. This light, non-oily day cream is a ground-breaking mix of natural concentrates that lessen fine lines and wrinkles, and re-plump your skin. This product is available at all sites including Amazon or Nykaa. You can also buy this from Himalaya for Rs.465.
They claim to:
- Soften your skin.
- Reduce fine lines and wrinkles in 4 weeks.
- An apparent lessening in age spots and pigmentation in 4 weeks.
- Lessens pores and evens the skin tone.
Youth Eternity by Himalaya Day Cream really is light on the face without making my skin looking oily. One pump has enough product to cover your whole face and neck. In the first place, it spreads evenly and absorbs fast. When it comes to my skin I don’t have any visible wrinkles or fine lines hence I can’t comment on that perspective. But I did notice my skin to be moisturized and within a few days of using this, my skin feels smooth and supple. My only pet peeve is that it doesn’t have enough SPF. For an anti-ageing cream shouldn’t it contain more SPF, since sun damage is comparatively a major factor for skin ageing?
Youth Eternity by Himalaya Night Cream
Youth Eternity by Himalaya Night Cream is a unique mix of Edelweiss Plant Stem Cells, Woodfordia, Rose Myrtle, Cipadessa, and Apple. These are rich in antioxidants, polyphenols, and anti-ageing properties which work overnight to give extreme hydration, lessen fine lines and wrinkles, leaving skin even-conditioned, and noticeably young.
They claim to:
- Decreases fine lines and wrinkles in a month.
- Enhances and levels the skin tone.
- Enhances skin laxity and hydration.
- Smoothens your skin.
With the number of products I use on my skin, a strict daily skin care routine is very important. Though I don’t show outward signs of skin ageing, I feel that it is just around the corner. Again a pea size amount of Youth Eternity by Himalaya Night Cream is enough for the whole face and neck and any more it makes your skin oily. I hate oiliness on my skin even though I am off to bed. This imparts a beautiful moisturization to my skin and makes it look healthy and bright in the morning. I don’t have any wrinkles yet but I think I am going to add the Youth Eternity by Himalaya night cream to my routine as well. This product is available at all sites including Amazon or Nykaa. You can also buy this from Himalaya for Rs.465.
Youth Eternity by Himalaya Under Eye Cream
Youth Eternity by Himalaya Under Eye Cream is rich in anti ageing in addition to its calming properties. It is an unrivalled blend of Edelweiss Plant Stem Cells, Woodfordia, Rose Myrtle, Cipadessa, and Amla. The under eye cream gently supports and hydrates the delicate skin around your eyes, making it bright and healthy.
They claim to:
- Lessens crow’s feet, wrinkles, and fine lines in 4 weeks
- Antioxidants treat puffy, morning eyes
- An apparent lessening in under eye pigmentation and dark circles in 4 weeks
- In addition to hydrating, it also makes your eyes to look brighter
Of Course, I try to get at least 6 hours of sleep everyday but things often don’t go according to plan. Hence I do get occasional panda eyes and puffy eyes. Coming back to the Youth Eternity by Himalaya under eye cream, it really does what it says. My eyes look brighter not to mention the darkness has reduced. But I really can’t comment on the wrinkles since I don’t have that problem, to begin with. But one little dollop is enough for the under eyes and I pat it down softly. It absorbs quickly and doesn’t show up under the makeup too. I am mighty pleased with this and might add Youth Eternity by Himalaya under eye cream to my daily routine. This product is available at all sites including Amazon or Nykaa. You can also buy this from Himalaya for Rs.490.
