Iconic fashion designer, Diane von Furstenberg said it best – “Ageing is out of your control. How you handle it, though, is in your hands.” Throughout life, there are certain things which are inescapable and ageing is undeniably one of those things. I’ll admit that I often feel an overwhelming sense of panic when I consider my age, which is 32, by the way. That agitation, bordering on hysteria, is usually exacerbated by a quick peek in the mirror and confirmation is given of new wrinkles cropping up.
As women, we are very complicated creatures. An average day is filled with numerous emotions and in turn countless facial expressions. We smile, we laugh, we frown and of course, we worry. These diverse feelings show up on our faces and age us a little bit faster. But, this shouldn’t stop us from enjoying our lives, embracing our moods and ageing gracefully. Let’s be honest – that’s why anti-aging skincare was invented. Am I right? The POND’S Age Miracle range makes a bold statement. They claim that you can look up to 10-years younger. The Age Miracle range has been formulated with 6 powerful anti-aging actives including Retinol, Retinol boosters and CLA (stimulates new cell production).
Pond’s Intensive Cell ReGEN™ Serum
If your skin needs a little extra something then adding a serum to your routine is an absolute must. In case you missed my #BeautifulHabits post then hop on over and go read all about why I think serums are a necessary addition to your beauty regime. This intensive, highly potent serum from POND’S Age Miracle range contains 20 times the concentration of their best anti-aging actives. Yes, that’s right – this serum offers your skin 20 times higher concentration of CLA4 compared to the POND’S Day Cream. In other words, this is the star of the show..
A silky, easily absorbed serum that applies smoothly and leaves your skin feeling even smoother. Well hello there, Miss Smooth. After continued use, you’ll notice that wrinkles and age spots will begin to fade and your skin and your overall skin tone should improve and radiate. I’ve been using this for over a week now and while I absolutely love how my skin feels I’ll only be able to give a proper review after a month. R200 at Clicks, Pick ‘n Pay and Dis-Chem.
Pond’s Cell ReGEN™ Age Miracle Day Cream
The POND’S Age Miracle day cream has been designed to target and reduce the signs of normal to dry ageing skin. It not only promises to expertly fight fine lines and wrinkles, but it also protects against age-accelerating UVA/UVB rays. I like that this light-textured facial cream absorbs quickly and easily into your skin, leaving it feeling soft and nourished. This day cream has been enriched with Vitamin C for its antioxidant properties. Vitamin C helps create younger, firmer skin while aiding in fading signs of sun damage and dark spots. I enjoying using this day cream as a moisturising base before makeup application as it offers my skin sun protection as well as hydration. R186 at Clicks, Pick ‘n Pay and Dis-Chem.

This rich, velvety soft night cream feels lovely when applied to your skin just before bedtime. This cream works overtime while you’re deep in slumberland. Did you know your skin cell regeneration potential is at its peak during sleep hours? My skin feels ‘awake’ the next morning and my face has a visibly healthy glow which I can only attribute to a bit of shut eye and the POND’S deep action night cream.
