garden of wisdom eternal youth elixir

I don’t know if the elixir of eternal youth really exists, but if it does, Garden Of Wisdom Eternal Youth Elixir is definitely a contender.

This baby is packed to the brim with anti-aging actives that help you slow down premature aging and keep wrinkles off your face for that little big longer. Here’s how:

P.S. Don’t get scared by its tiny size. That’s just a PR sample. The full size has an airless pump dispenser and contains 1 ounce of serum.

Key Ingredients in Garden Of Wisdom Eternal Youth Elixir

Antioxidants To Prevent Wrinkles

Garden Of Wisdom Eternal Youth Elixir is packed with antioxidants. Here are the highlights:

When it comes to antioxidants, your skin can’t get enough. The more, the merrier.

Peptides To Boost Collagen

Peptides are all the rage now. Garden Of Wisdom Eternal Youth Elixir has two:

I’m on the fence re peptides. On one hand, there’s not much proof they work. Most of the studies on peptides still come from the manufacturer. On the other hand, women who use them say it helps them firm skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.

One thing’s for sure: peptides are the building blocks for amino acids, which are the building blocks for proteins. Collagen and elastin, the scaffolding that keeps your skin firm and elastic, are proteins.

Get where I’m going? Even if they’re not the miracle workers the manufacturer makes them out to be, they likely do something for the skin.

I don’t suggest you go out and splurge on an expensive serum just because it has peptides. But when you come across an anti-aging serum with proven actives like antioxidants that also happen to have peptides, why not? 😉

Ceramides To Strengthen The Skin’s Protective Barrier

Ceramides are part of the glue that holds your skin cells together. They literally waterproof skin and strengthen its protective barrier. This barrier has two jobs:

When this protective barrier stops working, your skin dries and withers like an old prune. Germs and bacteria get in and irritate your skin like crazy.

Making sure your protective barrier stays intact and healthy is a top priority, especially if you have dry skin. That’s when ceramides come in. They patch up any holes in your barrier, keeping it whole and strong.

P.S. Garden Of Wisdom Eternal Youth Elixir also has cholesterol, another building block of your skin’s protective barrier.

Hyaluronic Acid To Hydrate Skin

Think of hyaluronic acid as a magnet. It attracts moisture to the air into the skin, helping to keep it hydrated. It’s so powerful, it can hold up to 1000 times its weight in water!

Your skin feasts with all that moisture. It plumps up fine lines and wrinkles so they look smaller. It softens the texture of your skin, so that it feels like that of a baby. It brightens the complexion and gives it a dewy glow.

Niacinamide To… Well, Everything!

Niacinamide wins the award for the “Most Versatile Skincare Ingredient.”

I’m not exaggerating. Here are all the things science says this form of vitamin B3 can do:

No matter your skin type, you can’t go wrong by adding it to your skincare routine.

Let’s Put It To The Test: Personal Use & Opinion

Orange in colour, Garden Of Wisdom Eternal Youth Elixir has a lightweight, almost gel-like texture that takes a minute or so to sink into the skin.

It does a great job at hydrating my skin. I use a moisturiser afterwards anyway, but since I’ve started using it I can see a difference in the texture of my skin. It’s softer to the touch and plumper. My crow’s feet are less noticeable now.

It also strengthens my skin’s protective barrier. The weather’s getting warmer now but here in London we still have cold windy days and the serum helps me withstand their assault. When I get home, my skin is still as soft as it was in the morning.

It’ll take way longer to see its anti-aging benefits. Antioxidants work by preventing damage so the fact my skin is still in top shape is a good sign!

If you’re ready to up your antiaging game or would like to add some hard-to-find antioxidants to your skincare routine (alpha lipoic acid, anyone?), this is well worth a try.
