Skin Concerns: Signs of aging

I grew up in Miami surrounded by super tanned beauties. Sun worshiping was the norm, and my ultra pale, delicate skin and the strong Miami sun were not a great match. Most of my childhood was spent slathered in sunscreen. And a great majority of my adolescence involved devising clever excuses to avoid weekends on the beach laying out. So protecting and caring for my skin has been a part of my daily routine since I was young. And I must say, it has certainly paid off. I'm 40, but my skin looks way younger.

Even before I discovered Marta's brilliant site, I spent a lot of my free time investigating the world of skin care and learning about the best ways to care for my skin both from the outside and from within. I became the person everyone came to when they had skin questions, from what products to use, to what to put on a rash. So when I discovered TIA, I was an instant fan. Marta was doing all of the hardcore research for me!

When it comes to taking care of your skin and your beauty, I believe it's best to utilize nature and science to help the body stay healthy, aligned and radiant. And, of course, I love testing out products and sharing what I've learned with the TIA community.

    MitoQ Skin Boosting Active Night Cream

    I have long been a fan of the original MitoQ serum. I remember when all of the positive reviews on TIA finally incited me to make the splurge. It was the most I had ever spent on a product at the time, and the results were so fabulous that I ended up buying many more bottles over the years. It was my go-to, one-and-only, desert-island product that seemed to transform the look and health of my skin. And so, you can imagine how excited I was to learn that MitoQ had launched a whole range of products.

    But to be completely honest, the new range was a bit overwhelming. How could I choose ...Read More...

    Luzern Laboratories Serum Absolute WE3

    Luzern Laboratories is brand that recently peaked my interest. The line seems like the right mix of naturals and cutting-edge science. A few months ago, I tried a tiny sample of their luxurious Force de Vie Crème Intensive and fell in love with the deliciously rich and nourishing product. So, when Truth In Aging asked me to test their Serum Absolute WE3 ($140), I jumped at the chance. This serum comes off as heavy hitter, being touted as a wrinkle eraser that is powered by 21 innovative actives.

    The list of key ingredients is exciting with several peptides, swiss apple ...Read More...

    Dr. Dennis Gross Ferulic + Retinol Triple Correction Eye Serum

    I have been testing Dr. Dennis Gross Ferulic + Retinol Triple Correction Eye Serum. It seems pretty unanimous among derms that ferulic acid and retinol is a proven heavy hitting anti-aging duo, so I was excited to give this product a go. Ferulic acid has been established as a powerful antioxidant and free radical hunter, with potential sun protection capabilities. Retinol is a well-known anti-ager used for exfoliating to smooth lines and renew ...Read More...

    Briogeo Rosarco Reparative Shampoo & Conditioner

    I know how much we Truth-In-Agers revel in a new beauty breakthrough — new ingredients, new discoveries, even new packaging gets us excited! And when it comes to skin care there are definitely some pretty astounding products out there. But for some reason, advancements in hair care seem to be lacking. This is likely why Marta developed her own line (which is all I use lately). I am always in search of that new magical hair care product that will tame my dry frizzy curls.

    So when I was asked to review Briogeo, an all natural hair care line, I jumped at the chance! I was sent th ...Read More...

    Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Peel

    I was fortunate enough to meet Dr. Dennis Gross in person and have one of his famous in-office peels. It’s a quick, totally painless, little procedure with maximum results. I was completely impressed with how my skin looked  — instantly glowy and dewy and taut. The results continued for a few days after, and I could see why people get hooked. Needless to say, I was very excited to test out the Dr. Dennis Gross Original Alpha Beta Peel ($88 in the sho ...Read More...
