Review : Glow Radiance Defy powder!

Hi guys,

It’s my first time trying a Collagen & Hyaluronic Acid food supplement. Collagen as you might already know, makes the skin more elastic and youthful, while Hyaluronic Acid helps the skin retain moisture, thus keeping it hydrated.

Glow Radiance’s Defy powder contains 5000mg of hydrolized collagen, which is pretty concentrated and 50mg of Sodium Hyaluronate in each serving. Serving size is 1 scoop, which comes along with the powder. I was pretty excited trying this product since it’s being ingested and hence works on a cell level. Surely there are many products out there which can be applied topically. Ofcourse they do work well but the Defy powder is superior since it’s a food supplement that has a fast absorption.

This powder comes in a tin and contains 200 gms. It’s a 40 days supply. I waited until I completed the entire course before doing this review, so that I can write a thorough one. The result is amazing!. My skin looks really great and I even got many compliments on my hydrated, moisturised skin. Since many know that I keep trying new creams and such, the common question was ‘Which cream are you using currently?’. Lol!.

The powder is cream in color, has a strange smell and tastes pleasant. It’s an umami taste. To use it, simply dissolve a scoop of powder in a glass of water after meal once daily. It contains no sugar, salt, starch, yeast, milk, egg, shellfish, preservatives, artificial flavors or color & is made in France.

My skin looks plumped, youthful, more supple and as if there is an inner glow. Glow Radiance’s motto itself is ‘Boost beauty from within’ which I think is really apt. It was during the third week that I started noticing an overall smooth effect. I would highly recommend this product to anyone who wishes to defy age itself (i.e. to an extent).

One thing I found a bit disappointing was that I thought it would diminish my smile lines which are a bit deep, since I smile a lot :D. But it didnt affect it at all. My eye area looks better though and I feel the fine lines there have softened. It also helps in keeping more lines at bay.

Price : AED 270 for a 200 gms tin

Definitely a product worth checking out if you are into an anti-aging skincare routine, just like me. Click here to buy.

Top Secrets to Younger Looking Skin All Year Round!

Younger glowing skin starts at home in your beauty cabinet and with your overall health. Having younger looking skin needs constant care and a change in your skin care routine from time to time. Time will not stop but we can delay its affect now better than before. Here are some of my top tips to help you maintain younger skin for longer:

Determine your skin type: Get checked by a skin expert and find out what is your skin type. Many people use products which are not meant for their skin type which causes adverse effects resulting in problematic skin that is not youthful.

Use Cleansers: Cleansers with exfoliants remove dead skin, daily debris, help with better penetration of active anti-aging ingredients and give a clear base. Physical exfoliants like micro-beads or chemical exfoliants like AHA found in products such as Pond’s Age Miracle Cell ReGENTM Facial Foam are good for the skin. However, exfoliants are not suitable for sensitive skin types. It is advisable to do an exfoliating cleanse at least once a week.

Anti-Aging Concentrated Serums:  These are a must-have in your skin care routine. Try to include serums that can be applied at night after thoroughly cleansing your skin and removal of makeup. This helps for better absorption while sleeping, and you will get more contact with the concentrated ingredients. A major point of focus in skincare products is the area of the jaw line and neck. I recommend using products with active ingredients concentrating on that area such as Pond’s Age Miracle Firm & Lift Targeted Lifting Serum Massager.

Sun Protection: It is essential to apply sunscreen before stepping out of the house to protect the skin from any DNA damage or collagen break down. Look for sunscreens that have UVB, UVA, and infrared protection.

Antioxidants: Even with protection we are still exposed to damaging oxidants and environment particles just by being outdoors. To reverse some of that damage it is suggested to choose products with Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Green or White tea extracts.

Dermatologist Visit:  It is recommended to see your dermatologist every now and then to get a proper evaluation. Your skin issues can be identified and addressed properly with treatments customized to the specific needs of your skin. 

Diet: Diet trends are becoming popular these days however, diets that include antioxidants are highly recommended. For example, the Mediterranean diet is a diet based on using olive oil, whole grain, dark greens, legumes, nuts, fruits, natural herbs, and sea food as a major protein source.

Exercise: Just like your body functions better when you are pumping blood to all its parts so does your skin. Regular exercising will ensure properly flowing oxygen throughout the body for the skin to function properly and renew itself.

De-Stress: Stress causes quick aging. Work, family, and social commitments make us forget our own body needs. But is important to rest, get your beauty sleep, and find time to unwind and relax and totally switch off. Turning all technology off from time to time will help you focus on your own health needs.
