I’ve mentioned before that I am 30 years old now….which is a major mile-stone, right? Well, it feels like it to me. I’ve always looked young for my age but have a personality that is somewhat more mature than my age. I think it’s been a pretty good balance so far. A reversal in this process would not be cool though. I certainly do not want my skin aging faster than I am ready for it to or for what it should be for my age. I would much rather mature personality wise than look wise. Not that I have anything against matured skin. I don’t. I always have said that we earn our wrinkles and when we get older we should embrace and be content with who we are and wrinkles usually come with the territory. But for now I would like my skin to look as young, fresh and radiant as possible without surgery or botox.

I noticed that I started to get some very small fine lines around my eyes in the last year. Nothing that really bothered me yet…and my friend still thinks I’m crazy but they were there. I also was born, raised, and have always lived in Sunny Southern California. The sun is always shining and we live a pretty active outdoor life. The last two summers we have been spent a great deal of time out on the lake…obviously in the sun and water. I already have freckles and somewhat fair skin so I always wear a high spf but I am still getting some sun damage to my skin. I know it. Jumping in and out of the water, a moisturizer can only stay on so long even if it is waterproof. So once again—short story long—my point is I have had some aging affects and sun damage to my skin which is going to age it moderately.

“Whatever” has been my attitude thus far. I know I take good care of my skin and drink plenty of water so if I am going to start getting fine lines around my eyes then, “whatever.” So I thought…….I started using a line of products in which I think might be a small miracle. It’s called Kinerase. I only had a two week supply but I honestly saw results after about four days and felt result literally right after I used the products. I couldn’t keep the back of my hand from stroking my baby soft cheek. And when I wasn’t doing it I was telling my husband, “Feel how soft my skin is. Seriously, you have to touch my face!” Of course I wouldn’t leave him alone until he would indulge my requests. He had to admit, my face did feel amazingly soft…like silk. Like I mentioned, about four days later my skin look visibly tighter and more vibrant. After two weeks I really do not have evidence of the fine lines I once had. CRAZY!!!

My routine went like this: I woke up and washed my face with the Kinerase Gentle Daily Cleanser. I then applied a C-6 Peptide Intensive Treatment topical cream all over my face, neck, and décolleté. Next I used the Kinerase Pro+ Therapy Advanced Repair Serum mostly around my eyes and let that absorb in for a few minutes. Lastly I would finish up with the Kinerase cream spf 30 moisturizer and the “canvas” was ready to be primed for makeup! That night I would do the same routine again except for the spf 30 moisturizer—instead I just used a daily moisturizer, Kinerase cream.

These products are awesome. I love that there are solutions to healthy looking skin with out going under the knife or havening to do and intense series of chemical peels and whatnot. I’m truly amazed at how wonderful these products actually are. Go check out the website and read up on “kinetin” the amazing ingredient that sets this line apart from others. Let me know what you think!
