What You Need to Know:
After gently cleansing and toning your face:

Below we break down each of these steps in detail and give you the scoop on our favorite products for achieving maximum anti-aging effects without leaving the house.
Step One: Ice Facial
WOW Factor: Giving yourself a regular ice facial is key to keeping inflammation (a main factor in aging) at bay.
WOW Pick: Stacked Skincare Ice Roller
What You Need To Know: This reasonably priced anti-inflammatory tool can be left in the freezer and used daily on your face and body.
According to Dr. Barbara Sturm, inflammation plays a significant role in the aging process. To combat this, you can use different forms of cold therapy, such as ice rolling, to prevent inflammation in the skin: reducing redness and swelling. We love that you can leave the Stacked Skincare Ice Roller in the freezer to chill its gel and water core. Once it’s sufficiently frozen, gently roll it over cleansed and toned skin to for a dose of inflammation relief.
Step Two: Anti-Aging Facial Oil
Retinoic Face Oil
WOW Factor: When it comes to anti-aging, (i.e. fighting the fine lines and dark spots on our face), our go-to ingredient is Vitamin A (otherwise known as Retinol). Retinol helps to increase cell turnover and promotes collagen production and firmness in the skin.
WOW Pick: Tata Harper Retinoic Face Oil (Vitamin A)
What You Need To Know: this hydrating face oil contains natural retinol as well as 17 other high-performance vitamins, amino acids, minerals, and anti-oxidants.
Made from 100% natural origin, Tata Harper’s cult facial oil imparts a luscious glow and feels oh-so luxurious to apply. Rose Hip Seed Oil, Olive Oil, Jojoba Seed Oil, and Apricot Oil combine for soft and balanced skin. We love to pat this Vitamin A-infused oil gently into skin before using a rose quartz roller, gua sha tool, or microcurrent device.
Step Three: Micro-Current Facial
WOW Factor: You don’t need to go to a spa in West Hollywood to receive an A-list anti-aging treatment. Microcurrent facials are now available in the palm of your hand.
WOW Pick: NuFace Trinity Device
What You Need To Know: The NuFace Trinity Microcurrent Device has been clinically-tested to reduce wrinkles, improve facial contour, and improve facial tone.
After applying your favorite face oil, take your regime up a few notches with a hand-held microcurrent device. The NuFace Trinity device is ergonomically designed to stimulate the larger areas of your face and neck to minimize the appearance of wrinkles. All in the comfort of your own home. We love that this treatment is gentle enough to do everyday and feels like a mini massage. Bonus: it only takes 5 minutes.
Step Four: Adaptogen-Infused Moisturizer
Youth To The People
Ashwaganda & Reishi
WOW Factor: Applied topically and taken internally, Adaptogens have been used for thousands of years in Aryurveda tradition. Reishi, an adaptogenic mushroom, works to hydrate and combat premature signs of aging.
What You Need To Know: Squalane, Ashwagandha, and Fermented Reishi combine to deliver moisture, balance, and plant-based anti-oxidant protection to the skin.
Apply generously in upward sweeping motions after letting your favorite face oil or serum sink in. This rich and creamy moisturizer is deeply hydrating and ideal for sensitive and sensitized skin. We love that it is fragrance-free and packed with some of our favorite multi-tasking adaptogens to defend against environmental stressors.
Step Five: LED Light Stim
Dr. Dennis Gross
DRx Spectra Light
WOW Factor: Red LED light is a powerhouse anti-aging treatment. A few minutes in front of specialized LED lights each day can help to simulate collagen production and promote elasticity in your skin (especially those delicate and hard-to-treat areas).
WOW Pick: Dr. Dennis Gross DRX Spectralite Faceware Pro
What You Need To Know: futuristic LED mask that fights inflammation, wrinkles, and acne.
Harness the power of 100 LED red mode lights and 62 blue mode lights to combat acne and wrinkles, firm skin, and diminish discoloration. We love that you can customize your treatment depending on what you want to target. Choose blue light therapy to destroy bacteria and prevent breakouts. Choose red light therapy to stimulate the natural production of collagen and elastin: smoothing wrinkles, sun spots, and calming inflammation. We love this mask because the design conforms to the contours of your face, positioning the lights directly onto the skin and away from your eyes.
