If you have been following me for some time, you know I struggle with fine lines and wrinkles. I’m a thirty-something-year-old mama of three who is way past due for her first botox injection. Though this is true, I am extremely happy to say I have discovered the fountain of youth, in a bottle. Allow me to introduce you to Uplift Beauty Oil!
This glass bottle of magic has changed my skin and the proof is to come. But before we talk how amazing this stuff is and what it has truly done for me, I first need to explain the HOW behind this facelift in a bottle.
Epidermis – Outermost layer of skin that holds cells that contain keratin and melanin.
Dermis – Second layer of skin and the thickest layer. The dermis gives skin strength, support, and flexibility. The dermis contains nerves, sebaceous glands (oil glands), hair follicles, and sweat glands.
Hypodermis – The deepest layer of the skin where fat is stored. The fat in the hypodermis protects the body from extreme temperatures.
Effects of Aging
We all experience aging skin to some degree but factors such as age, environmental contaminants, air pollution, and UV exposure can all negatively affect and prematurely age the skin. A reduction in sebaceous and sweat glands is also present, causing dry skin. It contains changes in melanin production which result in both paled skin as well as age spots, and fewer active hair follicles result in thinner hair.
What makes Uplift so great are the ingredients. It is packed full of anti-aging and hydrating ingredients that not only improve smoothness and brightness of the skin, but have also been shown to increase collagen levels and repair effects of UV exposure. In fact, every single ingredient in Uplift Beauty Oil is beneficial to the skin.
Squalane – Mimics natural oils found in the skin which boosts hydration and allows skin to appear more vibrant and supple.
Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride – Derived from coconut oil and glycerine. Hastens cell maturation. Suppresses inflammation. Improves smoothness. Retains and preserves moisture. Has been shown to be beneficial when used for psoriasis, cuts, rashes, bedsores, and calluses.
C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate – Contains conditioning qualities that result in silky smooth skin.
Tocopheryl Acetate – Fat soluble vitamin E that contains an extensive amount of antioxidant properties and skin-conditioning agents.
Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate – Stable form of vitamin C that has been shown to penetrate both the epidermal and dermal layers of the skin. Has been shown to increase collagen levels, reduce melanin production, brighten skin, and repair effects of UV exposure. Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate penetrates faster and goes deeper in the skin than any other form of vitamin C. The fat solubility of this form of vitamin C successfully allow it to quickly penetrate both top layers of the skin to directly affect collagen production where collagen is located.
Iris Pallida Leaf Cell Extract – Antioxidant, firming agent, anti-aging agent, renews damaged skin, defends from future damage, firming, regenerating, anti-wrinkle properties.
Ubiquinone (AKA CoQ10) – Helps combat the affects from sun exposure and thought to replace some of the natural antioxidants produced by the body, which decrease with age. Absorbs into skin easily and helps to reduce damage caused by free radicals, due to antioxidant properties present. Has been found to assist cells by rebuilding collagen and elastin, therefore reducing the appearance fo fine lines and wrinkles.
How to Use
At nighttime, after removing makeup, cleansing, and masking, apply 1-2 drops of Uplift Beauty Oil onto either your fingertips or directly onto face. Gently massage in an upward and outward motion, toward hairline; focusing on wrinkle-prone areas.
For extra skincare goodness, use with a jade roller. Jade rollers are great for increasing circulation in the skin, as well as increasing the skin’s natural detoxification process by increasing lymphatic drainage. Jade rollers have also been shown to have toning and lifting effects on the skin.
The results are undeniable! These photos were taken after only THREE MONTHS of use! Not only has the overall complexion and health of my skin changed but notice how the fine lines on my forehead and around my eyes have significantly diminished. Mamas, I’m telling you; this oil is a facelift in a bottle!
