I would like to look like I was 20, even 25, forever. Unfortunately, as we grow older, the collagen and elastin in our skin deteriorates. As a result, the skin around my jawline is looser and there are wrinkles forming around my eyes and mouth. Not wanting everyone to presume my age upon first glance, I realized I need to take action. I needed a great anti-aging cream to make my skin look radiant and youthful.
Finding my perfect anti-aging cream
In hopes to save time and money, I went straight to the internet to find which is the best anti-aging cream. Of course, there are pages and pages about anti-aging creams, serums and sunscreens, all containing active ingredients that reduce the signs of aging. Some of these products have peptides that boost the production of collagen and elastin, making skin look firmer and reducing wrinkles. Many of these products contain niacinamide, which hydrates the skin; hydrated skin looks plumper and has fewer fine lines. Other anti-aging products contain Vitamin C, which protects the skin from UV rays and free radicals or repair environmental damage that has aged the skin. All of these ingredients give the skin a more youthful appearance.
Starting an anti-aging skincare routine
I began to wonder, am I the last forty-year-old to start an anti-aging skincare routine? When should you start using anti-aging cream? I kept on reading, learning that anti-aging skincare routines are recommended from age 25. In the beginning, they are just preventive. At the age of 25, skin starts to lose 1% of collagen per year, which affects the skin’s elasticity, firmness and flexibility. After 35, a good anti-aging beauty cream will visibly reduce wrinkles and make skin firmer. So I am a bit late, but better late than never, right?!
According to the American Academy of Dermatology, everyone should use sunscreen and moisturizer daily. Dermatologists say that these are the two most-effective anti-aging products on the market. Making these products part of your daily skincare routine will create a noticeable difference. Okay, this sounds like good advice, but what is the anti-aging cream that really works?
Since I love what FRÉ products do for my sensitive skin to reduce redness, I decided to try their products for their anti-aging effects. FRÉ’s high-performance, science-based formulas have amazing results. I am happy to report that I have found the best anti-aging creams for sensitive skin.
After cleansing your face, your skin is ready for active ingredients that will reduce the signs of aging. This is the moment that I apply a serum both morning and night.
In the morning, I apply C ME ($85), a brightening antioxidant serum that repairs dark spots and smoothes skin texture. It is suitable for all skin types. It really energizes my skin and I can see that the sunspot on my right cheek has faded.
C ME contains 10% Vitamin C in the form of Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate. This powerful pure Vitamin C formula penetrates skin more fully and is absorbed better than other formulas on the market. It has a light gel texture that is waterless and fragrance free. Vitamin C is an antioxidant that prevents, protects and repairs damage caused by free radicals that come in contact with your skin, evening skin tone and smoothing skin texture.
How to use an antioxidant anti-aging serum
Massage 3-4 drops of C ME onto clean facial skin every morning until it is fully absorbed. Follow with an SPF.
Now that the kids are back in school, I have been bumping into all the other mothers at pick up. I was talking to Melanie, one of the mothers, who takes her kids to the beach all summer and she said to me, “I love the beach, but look at all the sunspots I have on my skin. I look like the kids’ grandmother, not their mother.” I told her about C ME. I saw her at pick up last week and she hugged me. “C ME really works! My face is brighter and my sunspots are fading. And my skin absorbs the serum super quickly, so it does not leave a sticky or oily residue. I look like a young mother again!”
At night, I apply REVIVE ME ($55), a serum that works to renew the skin, replenishing moisture and vitamins and regenerating collagen. It is suitable for all skin types. REVIVE ME increases my skin’s firmness and density and reduces wrinkles.
REVIVE ME contains FRÉ’s patented Argania Active Complex™. This formula is made up of argan oil, argan stem cells, and argan leaf-water extract, which work together synergistically to clear skin and reduce wrinkles. REVIVE ME also contains ingredients that firm skin, including palmitoyl tripeptide-1 and lactic acid. The formula also has hyaluronic acid, which hydrates and plumps skin.

After cleansing your face, apply a thin layer of REVIVE ME. Massage into the skin until fully absorbed. REVIVE ME can be part of both a morning and night skincare routine.
I was talking to Tessa, another mother whose son is on the same soccer team as my son, and she mentioned to me, “I hate that the skin around my jawline is starting to look loose.” I told her about REVIVE ME. A few weeks later, we were waiting for the soccer game to begin, and she said to me, “REVIVE ME is an amazing anti-aging cream! I have been using it twice a day for the last few weeks and the skin on my face is firmer and softer. Look at my jawline, no loose skin!”
Protecting your skin from the sun is the foundation of every anti-aging skincare routine. The sun’s rays make our skin age more quickly, but using a sunscreen daily will prevent sun damage and premature signs of aging. Every morning, I use PROTECT ME ($35), an ultra-light, yet deeply-nourishing moisturizing cream that has broad spectrum SPF 30 after applying C ME. It is suitable for all skin types. Best of all, PROTECT ME is water and sweat resistant, so I can be busy with my daily activities and not have to worry about sweating it off or it dripping into my eyes.
PROTECT ME contains tocopherol, a form of Vitamin E, which protects skin from free radicals and hydrates the skin. The formula also contains argan leaf extract, which promotes collagen regeneration, making skin firmer and younger looking.
How to use sunscreen
Apply PROTECT ME 15 minutes before sun exposure or as a moisturizer for your daily skincare routine after cleansing your face and applying a serum. Reapply every 2 hours and after sweating, going into the water or towel drying.
I was applying PROTECT ME to my face and my kids’ faces in the swimming pool locker room, when Sheila, a friend of mine, entered. She saw me and said, “Remember how you recommended PROTECT ME to me last summer? Well, I have been using it all summer and I did not burn once. And my skin is so soft and smooth. I think this moisturizer makes me look younger.”
Anti-aging Eye Cream
The skin around the eye is very thin and sensitive. As we age, it is one of the first places where wrinkles begin to form. I use BRIGHTEN ME ($45), a super-performance eye contour cream, to reduce dark circles and puffiness and prevent crows feet. It is suitable for all skin types. The serum makes my eyes look brighter and refreshed.
BRIGHTEN ME is made up of some high-performance patents. In addition to FRÉ’s patented Argania Active Complex™, which works to clear skin and reduce wrinkles, it has patented Adipoless, which strengthens capillaries and skin elasticity to reduce the appearance of dark circles under eyes. It also contains Ceramide complex, which locks moisture into the skin, preventing dryness.
How to use an anti-aging eye cream
Apply BRIGHTEN ME after applying your serum, morning and night. Gently apply a small amount along the orbital bone, from the inner to the outer corners of the eye contour area. Once your skin has absorbed BRIGHTEN ME, you can apply moisturizers, facial oils or SPF.
My neighbor, Jenny, is a nurse. She works all day in a surgical mask and people can only see her eyes. She was telling me that she worried that everyone thinks she is rather old, because of all the wrinkles by her eyes. I told her about BRIGHTEN ME. I saw her the other day and she told me, “BRIGHTEN ME really hydrates the skin around my eyes! I can see that the lines have faded. The anti-aging cream makes my eyes look ten years younger.”
Anti-aging Night Cream
During the night, your skin moves from the “protect” setting to the “renew” setting. Skin cells regenerate at an accelerated rate and repair themselves. Your skin is more receptive to products at this time of day and it is important to use an anti-aging night cream that hydrates and repairs your skin. At night, after using BRIGHTEN ME, I apply RECOVER ME ($49), a 3-in-1 an anti-aging night cream that fights sun damage, repairs blemishes and smoothes wrinkles and lines. It is suitable for all skin types. It works on my skin, while I sleep, so I wake up to youthful complexion.
RECOVER ME contains FRÉ’s patented Argania Active Complex™, which clears skin and reduces wrinkles. It also has niacinamide and hyaluronic acid, which hydrate skin, and copper tripeptide-1, which improves the firmness and elasticity of skin and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
How to use an anti-aging night cream
After cleansing your face and applying serum, massage a small amount of RECOVER ME into facial skin until fully absorbed.
My good friend, Lisa, called me to ask me how to use anti-aging cream. I explained to her how to integrate RECOVER ME into her skincare routine. A month later, we were having coffee, and she said, “I need to thank you, RECOVER ME has saved my face. My skin is smoother and clearer. I think I look better now than I did in my 20s.”
I don’t want my age to show on my face. By using the five best anti-aging creams, serums and sunscreen: PROTECT ME, REVIVE ME, C ME, BRIGHTEN ME, and RECOVER ME, my skin looks smooth and firm. These products are powered by FRÉ’s Argania Active Complex™, which is a patented formula made of argan oil, argan stem cells and argan leaf-water extract. These ingredients work together synergistically to clear skin and reduce wrinkles, leaving me with a radiant and youthful appearance.
