As a now 30-year-old, taking care of my skin is my number one priority. In my 20s I used anti-aging products as a preventative method against wrinkles. Now that my hard work seems to be paying off, I have been trying new anti-aging products with breakthrough technologies that will help my aging skin look more youthful, supple and healthy.
For the past month, I’ve been using the new la prairie Cellular Swiss Ice Crystal Cream, $300, Cellular Swiss Ice Crystal Dry Oil, $300, both launched this February and is causing a stir in the beauty world for its breakthrough advancement in skincare. Scientists discovered rare ‘survivalist’ plants that grow in the Swiss Alps despite the harsh, cold weather conditions. The purple saxifrage withstands extreme conditions by shielding its purple petals with tiny ice crystals; soldanella alpine is able to stay dormant under the ice and then surge up to the surface and bloom come spring; and red snow algae can thrive as a blanket of crimson that can only be seen as the ice begins to melt.
What does this mean for you? It means the ingredients in the new la prairie Celluar Swiss Ice Crystal Collection protects the skin from pollution, freezing temps (snow anyone?) and stressful combatants we encouter daily, especially city dwellers. The products, when used together, promise to turn back the clock to stop collagen breakdown, boost hydration in the skin and speed up rejuvenation.
For the past month of being on this new skincare regimen, my skin is noticeably more hydrated and the fine lines I saw under my eyes are smoother. Again, I don’t have much wrinkles or fine lines because I take my skincare routine seriously but the small ones I have are improving with twice a day use. The products are a bit pricy for the normal person but if you can afford it, they’re definitely worth the splurge.
Miles high in the Swiss Alps, in a world of sheer ice crystals, beauty transcends time. Here, two seemingly fragile plants and one tiny algae survive and thrive in the harshest setting on earth, developing strategies to outwit the environment. It’s only fitting then that la prairie, with a heritage deeply rooted in Switzerland, harnessed these extreme-survivalist secrets into the Cellular Swiss Ice Crystal Collection. The discovery combines some of the most sophisticated survivalist secrets
