Skincare made just for the over-40 set
Although I’m not necessarily thrilled that I’m now the target demographic for a line of skincare geared specifically for the over-40 set, I suppose there is an upside to using products designed to address exactly what’s going on with my skin at this point in time. That’s the goal of Osmotics’ Blue Copper Prime collection—because apparently hormonal changes are happening, and they can rapidly accelerate the appearance of visible signs of aging. (I’m not sure which is worse.)
I didn’t actually know this when I first tried Osmotics Blue Copper 5 Prime Instant Exfoliating Facial, which was probably beneficial for keeping an open mind. Designed to simultaneously exfoliate and hydrate the skin, this treatment is used like a cleanser (apply to wet skin, massage to create a lather and rinse) but leaves your skin feeling like you did a lot more. The secret is organic mannan (a plant-based sugar) particles that soften upon contact with water to exfoliate with no risk of irritation due to over-doing it. At the same time, it restores the skin’s moisture balance and improves skin texture, tone and the appearance of pores with continued use. Safe enough for daily use (though those with sensitive skin should probably keep it to two or three times a week), this has become a staple in my 40+ skincare regimen—and I’m totally OK with that.
