Here’s a little secret…I’m turning 40! OK, not in 10-days, but in a few more years. In the meantime, I’ve started to notice these little lines setting in around my lips. When I look in the mirror, I see the beginning signs of bags under my eyes, and when I raise my eyebrow to give my kids “The Look”, I see all kinds of scariness happening all over my forehead, brow line and corners of my eyes. I’m aging! And, I’m having a hard time doing it gracefully.

I’m not yet keen to the botox sessions some of my girlfriends have added to their calendars. I’m a scaredy-cat, and thoroughly convinced there is some product(s) out there that will resurface my face so that I don’t have to give in to becoming a botox junkie too soon. In fact, I’ve made a pact with myself to work as hard as I can on the inside and outside for the next year. After 365-days, whatever is left over can then succumb to the plastic surgeon. Juicing, healthier diet, supplements, exercise, fasting, sleeping…you name it, it’s on my list of natural alternatives to try before turning 40.

algenist 10 day challenge

One of the regimens I’ve added is quarterly facials and daily exfoliating. When I was asked to take the “Make the Next 10 Days More Beautiful Challenge” with a hot new product, Algenist Concentrated Reconstructing Serum, I figured I would give it a chance to see just how well it does what it says it’s going to. Here is what I read about the Algenist line that convinced me to give it a go:

It started out as a renewable energy project—and turned into an unexpected anti-aging discovery. Algenist comes from a team of biotechnology scientists based in San Francisco.

While researching microalgae-based renewable energy solutions, the team uncovered Alguronic Acid, a patented, powerful compound responsible for regenerating and protecting the microalgae cell. When scientifically tested, it also demonstrated significant anti-aging properties, increasing elastin synthesis by up to 32%* and cellular regeneration by up to 55%**.

Rooted in the breakthrough discovery of Alguronic Acid, Algenist focuses on the ability of targeted, bioactive ingredients to deliver visible anti-aging results to the skin.

The result? Breakthrough skincare for younger-looking skin at any age.

Algenist products are:
• Suitable for all skin types
• Dermatologist tested
• Non-comedogenic
• Hypoallergenic

Algenist products are formulated without:
• Parabens
• Sulfates
• Synthetic dyes
• Phthalates

• Triclosan

Average result measured following an in vitro test with Alguronic Acid (0.1%*, 0.04%**)
