How Does Stress Age You?

Posted On May 26, 2015


Stress happens.  We know it, but hate to admit the fact that stress, emotions, and everyday challenges can impact the condition of our skin, making us look older than we really are. If it’s not one thing, it’s another: decisions, deadlines, and unlimited details to deal with on a regular basis, with only elusive moments for enjoying a little downtime. Even when we try to pamper ourselves with a spa facial, skincare professionals remind us that stress-related lack of sleep, frowning, crying, and tense facial muscles can cause wrinkles, sagging skin, discoloration, bags, crows feet, and other signs of premature aging.

However, a remarkable substance called teprenone has been shown to slow down the shortening of your telomeres.  Teprenone is a plant derivative known to extend the lifespan of skin cells and facilitate cellular repair.

New You - e-newletter Collagen Peptide SerumLe Mieux Collagen Peptide Serum features teprenone as a key ingredient in a potent blend designed to increase hydration and collagen production for a remarkable lifting and firming effect.   This luxurious, creamy serum also contains the most advanced peptide technologies available, as well as hyaluronic acid, retinyl palmitate, superoxide dismutase, and ceramides I and III to specifically target sagging facial contours.

While most anti-aging creams focus on creating a barrier to seal and retain moisture inside the skin, this serum focuses on increasing the moisture levels from within to achieve toned, firmer-looking skin,” says Janel Luu, CEO of Le Mieux, an award-winning beauty brand praised by estheticians, makeup artists, and celebrities alike. “Collagen Peptide Serum features an exclusive double-encapsulated, timed-release technology that allows potent anti-aging ingredients like teprenone to reach targeted areas and rejuvenate the delicate tissue on the face, neck, and décolleté.”

Although you can’t always avoid stress, you can minimize its negative effects on your skin by changing how you respond.  Make time to relax, renew, and rejuvenate… and seek out the anti-aging benefits of teprenone in your skincare choices.
