When Cher sang the famous line, “If I could turn back time”, she was referring to past regret in how she treated a loved one. Expressing regret and wanting to go back in time to change something is fairly common in all of us. When I spend time in the store helping customers with skincare, many of them lament feelings of regret when it comes to the way they’ve treated their skin. Exposure to the sun, unhealthy habits and lifestyle often come back to haunt us in the form of sun damage, wrinkles and rough skin. Wanting to turn back time is a frequent desire when I’m helping a customer find a skincare product to reverse the signs of aging. In the past year, Yon-Ka Paris skincare launched their Age Exception range, focusing on the advanced signs of aging. The line began with a serum and cream, but has now expanded to include a new contours product and masque.
Anyone over 55 who wants to restore youthfulness to their skin will benefit greatly from the Cellular Code Long-Life Infusion Serum. Yes, it’s a mouthful, but this serum gets a lot done. A revolutionary cell-energy complex works to reprogram the skin’s youth code to boost cellular longevity which is responsible for communication, energy production and oxygenation, boosting the skin’s defense against free radical damage. Other specially-formulated patented key ingredients from Yon-Ka improve radiance, youthfulness and suppleness with each application. 2-3 pumps twice daily are recommended for best results.
The Excellence Code Global Youth Cream pairs perfectly with the serum, elevating any skin care regimen to the next level. The most elaborate and advanced anti-aging cream that Yon-Ka has to offer, all the signs of mature skin are addressed. The powerful immortality herb, avocado and grape seed oils blend together with Hyaluronic acid, thistle and red algae extract to combat the deepest layers of the skin, fighting off hyperpigmentation and improving firmness. The airless jar releases just the right amount of product needed each time without the possibility of contamination to preserve the efficiency of the ingredients.
One of the most visible signs of aging is around the contours of our face. To remedy that, Yon-Ka has added a Contours product for their Excellence Code range. Ingredients like Hyaluronic Acid, Persian Silk Tree and St. Paul’s Wort keep the skin looking plump and smooth while reducing the appearance of puffiness and dark circles. Co-enzyme Q10 and Vitamin E smooth and protect the skin against free radical damage. An applicator makes it easy to massage and smooth over the lip and eye area.
To boost the ultimate radiance in the skin, Yon-Ka recommends adding the new Excellence Code Masque. Used 1 to 2 times a week after cleansing, this mask instantly lifts, plumps, refines and brightens the skin. Alpha hydroxyl fruit acids and marine collagen exfoliate away dead skin, while Hyaluronic Acid and Sweet Almond proteins keep the skin firm and plum. Grape Seed Oil, Allantoin and a blend of vitamins keep skin hydrated, nourished and repaired.
