Moisturizer acts as a barrier between environmental stressors and your skin. It also is responsible for keeping your skin soft. Skin that is well-moisturized will cause the signs of aging to be more noticeable while failing to moisturize the skin early can cause premature aging. The Anti-Aging Complex by La Prairie is supposed to be an advanced formula that creates a “moisture veil “ to protect the skin.
La Prairie suggests that the Anti-Aging Complex will not only hydrate the skin but relax the expression lines that eventually lead to wrinkles. It is also supposed to target “microstress” beneath the skin’s surface, protecting it from deterioration.La Prairie also claims that the Anti-Aging Complex is a time-released formula that distributes moisture droplets continuously.
The company suggests applying the Anti-Aging Complex twice per day using the palm of your hands but, it can be applied as needed. The formula should be applied to your face, the neck, and the décolleté, while contouring your face with a pressing motion. The Anti-Aging Complex does not include a sunscreen ingredient like many other brands and La Prairie recommends following up the treatment with one of their day creams with SPF 30.
La Prairie has received mixed reviews from end-users that range from being very satisfied to others having seen little results. The price point on La Prairie makes it a very high-end, exclusive item that many people are interested in at least trying.
La Prairie includes many different ingredients in the complex, some familiar ones are Retinyl Palmitate, Olive Oil, Fruit Extracts, and Hazelnut Protein. This is not a Paraben-free product and it also includes Alcohol and Fragrance. These types of ingredients may in fact irritate sensitive skin if used too frequently or in combination with other products.
