Anti-wrinkles: our anti-aging tips to preserve your youth

anti-wrinkle, Saeve's advice

You may be on the verge of heading to a plastic surgeon for injections or blepharoplasty. You begin to no longer recognize yourself, and the mere sight of your face in the mirror makes you gloomy.

It's not so much getting older that's difficult; it is in the order of things and you are aware of it. Rather, it's how it manifests itself that is distressing. And then, in your head, you're still at the party.

How to fight against your wrinkles without attacking or traumatizing your skin?

What if this strength was precisely in our products? In the association of two king trees of French Nature: Organic Birch and Maritime Pine extract .

The anti-wrinkle solution is found in the synergy between these two trees to serve the skin of your face, fight against its aging and work directly on its structure and its collagen production.

In this new post, we explain everything about the richness of Maritime Pine and we give you anti-wrinkle tips .

Who said growing old means withering? Certainly not us! We love seeing you beautiful and fulfilled throughout life.

1 – The fatal anti-wrinkle weapon, Maritime Pine extract

Maritime Pine extract or Landes Pine extract is more often known under the name Pycnogenol .

The virtues of Maritime Pine were discovered during Jacques Cartier's exploration campaigns towards the Americas in the 16th Century. As he recorded everything, he reported that infusions of Maritime Pine bark had saved his crews from scurvy, a disease caused by a lack of vitamin C.

Since then, Maritime Pine has been the subject of numerous scientific research, and we have noticed that its extract contains an incredible mixture of antioxidants.

Maritime pine, anti-wrinkle ingredient

Internally, it can:

• Support the cardiovascular system by supporting the proper functioning of the heart

• Alleviate joint discomfort and help the proper functioning of the osteoarticular system thanks to its anti-inflammatory properties

• Contribute to ocular well-being thanks to its carotenoid content

And for the skin, it also works wonders:

• It participates in the production of nitrogen monoxide, which promotes microcirculation

• It acts on the degradation factors of collagen and elastin in order to preserve these precious materials • It supports the production of natural collagen

• It takes part in the fight against free radicals and is extremely helpful in the event of sunburn

But externally, you will tell us, is it as effective?

The answer is yes ! The flavonoids present in Maritime Pine extract will provide the skin with comprehensive protection, particularly against facial wrinkles and skin aging. Victory is within reach!

2 – Intense hydration of finer skin

Be careful of sugars

We explain it to you in our post “ Anti-aging cream, understanding and slowing down facial skin aging ”. Too much sugar consumption leads to a phenomenon of glycation , which can also be called “caramelization” or the Maillard reaction.

You probably know this reaction without knowing it. When you braise meat, it is the fire that will grill the surface of the meat. It's the same process that browns the cheese you put on your cannelloni.

The sugars present in the foods you ingest will attach to proteins, and modify the molecular structure of the food by breaking down the proteins. Since collagen is a protein, we can imagine that the same is true for your skin.

So ladies, we are not against little sweets, but be careful with your consumption of refined, industrialized sugars and especially the quantities.

Exit pollutants: tobacco, alcohol, sun

All toxic substances are potential threats to your youth. We will agree that the aftermath of birthdays filled with champagne and tobacco are hardly conducive to a refreshed appearance. The same goes for exposure to the sun's UV rays, where the complexion sometimes turns gray more than it turns golden.

In short, stop free radicals, which reduce our youthfulness by playing with the healthy cells of our skin. Before even investing in our best products, eliminate all these polluting intruders as much as possible.

If you want to go out in the sun, do it preferably during the cooler hours, wearing a hat, sunglasses and sunscreen with a high protection factor. If you consume alcohol, do so in moderation, and if you are thinking about quitting smoking, we strongly encourage you to do so! It’s truly a “youth” act par excellence.

Regular facial massage, the ultimate anti-wrinkle boost

Videos of anti-wrinkle facial massages are taking over social media, and that's a very good thing. Our face is made up of muscles and blood and lymphatic channels that need as much stimulation as the rest of the muscles in our body. The history of facial massage originates from Asia. It is the result of Japanese practices of Kobido massage, but also of seated Amma massage and Dien Shan reflexology methods.

These methods made it possible to understand the importance of soliciting the face with gentle but deep touches on specific points. They help unclog facial tissues, activate elimination and drainage, and boost microcirculation. They also have an anti-wrinkle function: facial muscle tension will tend to favor the creation of wrinkles. Even if you can never get a deep massage like a professional, you can take the time to smooth your face every day.

A few minutes are enough to make a difference and optimize the effectiveness of your care.

3 – Saeve and his Lift Pinaster range

If we told you about this marvel of Maritime Pine extract, it's mainly because we had the idea of ​​combining it with our Immunox® patent in four of our products.

We're doing it again for you because it's been a long time since we've had an update on it. Immunox® is our signature complex:

Fresh organic birch sap , a real bath of youth thanks to its detoxifying and regenerating action

Organic Chaga , also called “mushroom of immortality”, whose cellular protection action has been tested numerous times in our laboratory

Our synergy has benefited from more than 115 scientific tests and studies. They made it possible to demonstrate the activity of the Immunox® patent on the three life stages of the skin:

On its past, the Immunox® complex makes it possible to work on the restoration of mitochondrial DNA damaged during the day. Stable mitochondrial DNA means a cell in good shape. Protection and repair are there

On its present, the Immunox® patent acts against oxidative stress and enemy free radicals

• On its future, organic Birch Sap and organic Chaga modulate the skin's immune response to support it in its next battles

In Lift Pinaster , we added Maritime Pine extract in addition. You imagine ? Cellular restoration, oxidative calm, protection of collagen and elastin. Would we have found the anti-aging solution just as gentle as it is solid?

Lift Pinaster has four products to help you:

Upon application, you already have the feeling that this cream is filling in wrinkles and redensifying the skin for a smoother finish thanks to its silky texture. Rich in broccoli flavonoids and firming tripeptides, this warm-smelling cream acts directly on the appearance of the skin, improving its elasticity and making it firmer. This anti-wrinkle treatment acts deeply to stop the marks of time.

Have you ever heard your skin thank you? With our Redensifying Night Cream, this will be possible. This anti-wrinkle cream with an ultra-creamy texture acts during sleep when cell renewal is most stimulated. It is composed of numerous active ingredients such as encapsulated flavonoids for in-depth action against skin aging, apricot kernel oil for a healthy glow and effective nourishment with firm skin as a result. Combined with the Immunox Patent, the skin feels regenerated, smoother, firmer and its elasticity is reinforced! And above all, it shines from the first morning.

The botanical serum from the Lift Pinaster range is the treatment that acts underwater to reach the deeper layers of the epidermis, where wrinkles are created. Superconcentrated in Organic Birch Sap, organic Chaga and Pine polyphenols, and vegetable hyaluronic acid, this anti-wrinkle serum redensifies and improves the structure of the skin to help restore volume. The complexion is brighter and the depth of wrinkles is reduced, as if filled. Suffice to say that this bath of youth is complete. Boosting the formation of collagen, stopping free radicals and deeply hydrating, this is enough to bounce back and firm the cheeks.

One of our favorites among all our facial treatments, the Eye and Lip Contour has a refreshing metal applicator . This 3-in-1 Anti-wrinkle, anti-puffiness and anti-dark circles treatment allows you to apply the right dose of product with a relaxing fresh-up effect. This boosts circulation and congestion in the dark circle. Say goodbye to dark circles; and hello doe eye! This treatment tightens the eyelid, firms the skin and smoothes crow's feet wrinkles!
