Sisters Cecil Booth and Rebecca Booth, M.D., founders and creators of VENeffect skin care line by women and for women enlightened us to one of the most unexplored aspects of anti-aging skin care – addressing HORMONAL AGING. In our late twenties estrogen levels decline resulting in a loss of collagen production in our skin and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles = effects of hormonal aging. While this makes sense to me, I have never encountered a skin care line that addresses this very basic of aging issues until I met the founders of VENeffect at Neiman Marcus Walnut Creek in December.
Exclusive to Neiman Marcus, the VENeffect anti-aging skin care line preserves and restores the healthy glow of skin at peak vitality by infusing 100% natural phytoestrogens (powerful antioxidants) into the skin to improve elasticity and deliver collagen to the collagen receptors that exists in our skin and never age over time or diminish in their capacity to receive collagen. Our entire lives these collagen receptors work as they should and VENeffect gives these collagen receptors exactly what they need, 100% naturally, through the seeds and roots of natures most healthy plants such as cocoa and grape seeds. Wine and chocolate are good for you ladies and science has proven it!
If there is one product in their skin care line that they recommend the most it’s their Anti-Aging Intensive Moisturizer which delivers an immediate increase in elasticity and has the highest levels of their plant-based phytoestrogen technology. This moisturizer is formulated to not be oily and can be used day or night. Recently 2 new products have been added to their line, the Firming Phyto-Lift Serum and The Firming Neck & Decollete Creme which I have been using and noticed that the deep lines on my neck have reduced after a few weeks of use. P.S. ladies – our necks and hands are the parts of our bodies that tell our age the most and they are 2 aspects of our bodies that we tend to neglect so be sure you start caring for your neck and hands early!
As my interview with these very knowledgeable ladies drew to a close I asked them if they had any skin-care regrets to share and indeed Cecil did; Lose the toner. It might be useful when you are very young to control excess oil but she believes its a step that can dry out the skin too much and instead feels that serum became the 25 + year old woman’s toner because it’s a better way to prep the skin for the moisturizer that follows. Another word of advice is to start taking care of your skin with anti-aging products early on. OB / GYN Rebecca adds that taking care of your body from the inside out thru diet, exercise, beauty practices and overall wellness is just as important, so much so that they share a host of anti-aging lifestyle tips on their website www.VENeffect.com.
