The Secret is in Your Genes

For those of you who are new to Short and Sweet, I’ll tell you up front that I am all about skin care, especially preventative and anti-aging skin care.  I started using anti-aging products when I was in college so I’m going to go ahead and say it…The time to use sunscreen and anti-aging products is now!

tay and I

I love when people mistake my daughter and I as sisters.  What a compliment, she’s absolutely gorgeous! Little did I know that when I used to say that looking young must be in my genes, I was right, haha!  The best part is, the secret is in your genes too!

For the last two weeks I have added HydroPeptide Nimni Cream to my nighttime skin care routine. I apply a small amount to my face and neck at night, after cleansing before moisturizer.  Almost immediately I begin to feel the tingle.  What is it about tingling that triggers the, “it’s working” feeling?  The cream has time-released Retinol which helps improves skin’s fullness and elasticity while resurfacing skin for a more even tone and texture.  Because  this product contains a time-release Retinol I only used in 3 out of 5 nights the first week.  I started getting brave and using it more often…don’t make my mistake.  It is better to give your skin time to build up a tolerance. If you get a little excited and overuse it you skin might start to feel irritated and even brake out a little. Just remember that it’s still working even when you aren’t applying it nightly and a little bit goes a long way!

I have started to notice a difference in my skin’s elasticity, especially my worry lines. Also, my overall skin tone has a glow.  I am really excited to see what my skin will look like after a month!

So…back to our genes…Nimni cream contains a patented amino acid complex developed by Dr. Marcel Nimni.  This complex helps to optimize collagen production, which is essential in maintaining a younger, firmer appearance.  Click here to learn more.  Be sure to scroll down after you click to watch the “Is Your Skin Turned On” Video!  I got a giggle out of their pun and I hope you do too!

I will keep you posted with further results as I use the product longer.  What are your anti-aging secret weapons?  I like to have as many tools as possible in this department!

Keeping It Short & Sweet,
