If you’re anything like us, you’re constantly sucked in by anything that says Anti-wrinkle. Aging? Way cool. Embracing wrinkles? We’re trying.
A Jade Roller
Unless you don’t have Pinterest or live under a rock, chances are you’ve heard of Jade Rolling- aka the hottest new (but actually ancient) beauty trend of 2017. Basically, two hunks of jade are fixed on a (you guessed it) roller for lymphatic drainage and a whole lotta other good benefits, like reducing fine lines and wrinkles and helping absorb product quicker. Just roll your favorite serum upward and outward each night to reactivate elasticity in the skin. Our favorite is the Herbivore Botanicals Jade Facial Roller, but you can find plenty on Etsy, too.
2. A Good Retinol
There’s no such thing as the perfect serum, but retinol comes pretty GD close- especially in the winter time. Retionals are essentially a derivitive of Vitamin AOver the counter retinols can help increase skin cell turnover AND stimulate collagen synthesis- thus helping visibly reduce brown spots, large pores, and fine lines and wrinkles. There are lots of amazing retinols out there. Right now we are wholeheartedly obsessed with Murad’s Youth Renewal Serum. Use every three days or so until your skin proves tolerant of the serum, and always use at night so you don’t burn. Just trust us.
3. A Silk Pillowcase
Ok, ok- so it’s not really a tool, but more like the cherry on top of an already kick-ass skin care routine. If you haven’t rested on a silk pillowcase thus far in your life, it’s high time. Cotton pillowcases tug on skin as you shift in your sleep, causing wrinkles and fine lines- not to mention causing breakouts from product that gets trapped in cotton threads. We love Slip Silk Pillowcases, the Rolls Royce of Charmeuse.
