Ever wonder why the skincare products you used to love just are cutting it anymore? STAGES of BEAUTY may have the answer. STAGES of BEAUTY is a brand spankin’ new skincare line that launched in January of this year. The idea is both simple and innovative–a skincare line devoted to addressing the changing needs of a woman’s skin throughout her life. STAGES of BEAUTY was created by Jasmina Aganovic, an MIT-trained Chemical & Biological Engineer. Passionate about skincare, she saw that few brands actually catered to all of our skin’s anti-aging needs throughout life. Biological changes happen like clockwork; however, most skincare brands fail to consider age in their formulations. As a result, our skin falls short of its absolute best. STAGES of BEAUTY understands that we’re fighting against more than wrinkles! Many other changes are occurring, like increased sun sensitivity (triggering sun spots and spider veins), dulling complexion, and thinning and thirsty skin—just to name a few.
Sooo, STAGES of BEAUTY is broken into four separate skincare systems with formulations to address those specific issues facing each decade of our lives. In each system is a ‘core’ of must- haves for every age which include moisturization and up-to-date delivery technology to ensure the ingredients get to where they need to be. Each system is composed of three products; a cleanser, scrub and treatment cream. Each decade has a separate name for the products in that particular line. I’m not going to go into detail for the 20’s & 30’s but rather concentrate on the 40’s & 50’s+
RADIANCE in your 20’s -provides environmental protection
HARMONY in your 30’s – provides deep hydration and helps deal with beginning fine lines and wrinkles
ELEGANCE in your 40’s – the skin begins to thin and become dryer, leading to a loss of elasticity. There is also an increase in sensitivity, as demonstrated by more freckles, sun spots and spider veins. The Elegance anti-aging line provides overall hydration and calming properties to help skin regain its elasticity, tone and firmness.
Key ingredients include:
- Tetra Peptide 17 – helps stimulate elastin and collagen production
- Sodium Hyaluronate – helps maintain a high moisture level
- Amino Acid Complex – helps stimulate, repair and protect skins DNA
GRACE in your 50’s+ – hormonal changes send the skin into overdrive making it even drier and thinner. Wrinkles gain definition, pores become larger, and the skin’s immunity decreases. The Grace anti-aging line provides ultimate hydration while balancing the effects of hormones and helping to restore the skin’s surface immunity, firmness and elasticity.
Key ingredients include:
- Sorgum Extract – acts on the surface of the skin and provides an immediate tightening effect, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
- Custom Peptide Blend – helps stimulate the production of collagen and elastin
- Chinese Botanical Blend – acts to increase the surface immunity of the skin
I’ve been using the GRACE treatment cream for probably a month now and I like it very much. The one aspect of the cream I’m most impressed with is that it’s rich and emollient without being the slightest bit greasy. I can use GRACE for my day and night cream since I get no oily breakthrough midday and that’s a concern for me. Some creams are so rich, my makeup ends up sliding off my forehead by lunchtime and I hate that! Seriously, this cream absorbs better than any other I’ve tried to date, and it makes my skin feel as soft and supple as my mother’s old leather church gloves. My mother had a pair of white (now yellowed with age) leather gloves with pearl buttons that she sometimes wore to church or weddings and my skin feels smooth and velvety just like those graceful broken in gloves. I have to admit, I noticed the greatest difference when I quit using GRACE to test another line. In fact, my skin got very dry with the new line and I’ve gone back to GRACE Treatment Cream to bring some much needed hydration back to my skin. This to me, this is verification that a product works!
