Here’s the thing about getting older: I can confidently say that this is my favourite stage of life.  I love being a mother and I love the ages my kids are at– we can do so much together.  I love the confidence and assurance in myself that has really seemed to solidify in the last few years.  I love that I run my own business and make my own hours.  I love pretty much everything.  I don’t even mind that I’m closer to 40 than I am to 30.  It is all just feeling so good and I love every year more than the year before.  But, here’s the thing about aging SKIN…

It can be so much less of an *issue* than it needs to be.  There are things we can do to ‘lessen’ the impact and the effects of aging skin without making a big deal of it.

I have a good friend who has been using eye creams and serums for around her eyes since we were in our early twenties.  I didn’t even start washing my face properly until I was 30.  (Wish I was kidding!)  I thought she was nuts.  Turns out, she is BRILLIANT.  She has such naturally beautiful skin and so few fine lines, it’s not even funny.  Anti-aging can really be effective, if you’re using quality products.

Recently, I started using the Mériance Collagen anti-aging line of products.  It’s not about trying to look YOUNGER for me, it’s about trying to look and feel the best I can at THIS AGE.  I feel like that is a healthy goal to strive for and quality products like Mériance can really help with that.

Made in Quebec, Mériance Collagen is synonymous with luxury. Applying Mériance treatments to your skin provides a moment of pure pleasure, with guaranteed results.

Being proactive with our skin is no different than being proactive with our overall health.  We exercise to stay healthy.  We take vitamins to ward off illnesses and strengthen our bones, etc.  What we put on our skin is equally as important in terms of self-care.

Mériance is all-natural which is definitely something to consider when it comes to what we put on our skin.  The less ‘extra’ ingredients in a product, the better.

More about Mériance:

With age, the skin loses its elasticity and firmness. Cell turnover slows down, collagen production decreases. But above all, the supporting tissue is disorganized, leading to slackening skin and the appearance of increasingly deep wrinkles.

Collagen Serum targets cellular dynamism to reinforce the dermis architecture and fight the signs of age. Visibly active, the action of this Serum is measurable from the first application!

Native Marine Collagen is reckoned as the most beneficial ingredient for people who are in search of most effective cosmetics to delay the formation of wrinkles and aging signs.

Discover pure Collagen Serum from Mériance, a unique formula enriched with soluble collagen derived from marine origin that effectively penetrates the skin to reduce wrinkles and fine lines. Your skin will be moisturized and will regain its beauty and suppleness. Densely laden with collagen of unmatched purity (99.7%), this advanced treatment offers a true source of daily youth.
