Here at Truth In Aging, we recognize that anti-aging skin care is not just for the face. The skin on our bodies also needs some TLC to combat fine lines, wrinkles, dryness, discoloration and other aging concerns. Back in May, Marta extolled the transformative benefits of today's winning body treatment in her roundup of body regimen essentials, saying that its price tag is worth every cent. Since then, it's earned raves for its effectiveness on tough-to-treat areas such as the elbows, knees, arms and chest. It's even been called out for its ability to combat the process of glycation and mitigate advanced glycation end products (AGEs) — clearly, this powerhouse is not your grandmother's body lotion!
The Winner: Stemulation Relance Body Lotion
What elevates Stemulation Relance Body Lotion ($98 in the shop) from a moisturizer to an anti-aging body treatment are its remarkable ingredients. It's the only stem cell formula for the body that Marta is aware of, and its other impressive ingredients include exfoliating lactates and fruit acids, plant-derived antioxidants and botanical oils. Stemulation Relance Body Lotion even includes a pepper fruit extract that is claimed to firm up supporting skin tissue. These heavy-hitting ingredients work together in a suprisingly lightweight lotion to gently exfoliate skin while also stimulating collagen production, decreasing crepeyness and leaving skin moisturized, firm and youthful. Although it is priced at the higher end of the scale, a little bit goes a really long way, and its effects are long-lasting. In Marta's own words, "this body lotion thinks it is a serum," making it a worthy recipient of our award for Best Anti-Aging Body Treatment of the Year.
