Face it! Special Editor’s Edition – Graceful Aging


For our annual Inspiration issue and in celebration of our natural beauty feature, I want to share a few effective graceful aging products with NICHE readers. Over the last four months, I have tried, tested and reviewed more than 30 skincare products for maturing skin — these are my top seven editor picks!

LIQUID LIFT The results are immediate! This gravity-defying serum uses golden caviar pearls and technology to deliver instant lift, significantly diminishing wrinkles, and firming skin. Past damage disappears as cells are rejuvenated; new cells are super-charged and protected. Holt Renfrew ($550 – 50ml)

My go-to summer anti-aging lip shine! A smooth, shiny gloss for naturally fuller-looking lips, it’s sheer but
with enough colour to wear alone. It nourishes, repairs and protects lips and comes in six shades — my favourite is 04 petal shimmer (shown).
Hudson’s Bay ($20 – 12ml)

This little tube packs a powerful punch! Reverse the signs of aging, target wrinkles, crow’s feet and dark circles. Retinol and tissue-regenerating peptides fortify skin while a UGL complex, Oat Proteins and Fraxinus Extract firms and repairs skin texture. dermalogica.ca ($107 – 15ml)

CELAZOME – CODE 4 SPRAY LOTION Spritz on moisturizer! Code 4 energizes and protects skin from UV damage, calms redness, tightens and compensates for age-related decreases in cell protection. La Derma [Vancouver], Heaven Spa [Victoria] ($118 – 60ml)

Silky smooth, light and non- greasy! With protein peptides that override the biochemical triggers that lead to skin aging, this exceptional product contains micro-encapsulated vitamins that increase skin recovery and decrease fine lines and age spots. dermalogica.ca ($92 – 22ml)

CLARINS – PORE MINIMIZING SERUM Love the matte finish! Lightweight serum instantly tightens, purifies and minimizes enlarged pores, while delivering all-day shine control. Alpine Willow Herb purifies the skin while Lantana from Madagascar leaves the skin with a matte finish. Hudson’s Bay ($48 – 30ml)

A Vancouver, B.C. company! This body mask contains
live collagen that reduces the appearance of scars, stretch marks and uneven skin texture. Organic nettle leaf extract soothes and decreases skin inflammation, while Juniper berry oil treats cellulite. aionaalive.com ($72 – 60ml)
