These days, staying ahead of Father Time's wrinkle wand is job 1.
I'm learning to sleep on my back instead of my side to avoid creasing my face. I'm giving up straws (Diet Coke will never taste the same!) because they lead to fine lines around your mouth. And I hunt down skincare products that can aid my cause.
My latest find: Nuvosa's new complexion-pampering line. Based on cutting-edge technology, this threesome combines powerful anti-aging compounds with natural and organic vitamins and supplements proven to improve skin. Though extremely potent, they're gentle enough for any skin type and skin tone.
Feeling lucky? You might have a chance to try them for yourself. We've teamed up with Nuvosa to give away a $198-value set including their Flawless Age Protection Toner, Deep Wrinkle Remedy Serum and Reborn Wrinkle Shield Moisturizer.

My Nuvosa arrived in a sleek, black box. So pretty! Too bad we were headed out the door on a 10-day Italian adventure (our longest vacation ... EVER!).
It took some doing but I forced myself to wait rather than chance changing my skincare routine on the road. That would've been crazy! But naturally, my silly skin still went through turmoil in Tuscany ... but that's another story.
Returning home, I let my complextion recover; then about a week ago started using Nuvosa. Although the unique pump dispenser on the toner and wrinkle serum took some getting used to, I'm pleased with the results. It's only been a week but I like the way my skin looks and feels. And they tell me most women (97%) notice their skin is smoother after four weeks of use.
You put this skin-pampering threesome to work after cleansing:
Flawless Age Protection Toner
The 95% organic Flawless Age Protection Toner's up first because it closes pores, restores your skin's natural pH balance, and removes any oil or dirt remaining after cleansing.
What's more, you don't have to worry about it drying your skin. Unlike most toners, Flawless is designed to moisturize while toning, tightening and helping skin look more youthful. It's packed with antioxidants like Vitamin C to fight the daily barrage of free radical damage as well as other essential vitamins and minerals that combat aging.
Using a cotton ball to swipe Flawless across my face leaves it feeling nice, firm (thanks to the inclusion of DMAE) and doubly clean. I really like knowing it's getting anything washing alone has left behind. ($30 for 4.4 ounces)
Deep Wrinkle Remedy Serum
This potent anti-wrinkle formula is formulated to reduce the appearance of sagging skin, lines and wrinkles without painful, expensive injections, dangerous muscle relaxers or harsh chemical ingredients. Based on recent DMAE research and its many benefits, Deep Wrinkle Remedy uses Hyaluronic-acid technology to boost performance and provide long-lasting effects. I was especially happy to learn that because I've heard Hyaluronic acid can help skin look more youthful.
You use this thin, yellowish lotion in the morning, at night or both after cleansing and toning. I've enjoyed smoothing it over my face and neck twice daily as an intense firming treatment, but you can also apply it directly on individual lines and wrinkles. I've had no red eruptions (my first concern) and I love knowing this serum is working to resurface my complexion with proven anti-aging compounds combined with skin-kind organics like Sugar Cane and Sugar Maple Extract, Aloe Vera Extract, Cranberry Extract and more. ($98 for 1 ounce)
Reborn Wrinkle Shield Moisturizer
This super hydrator nourishes skin with a 91% organic formula designed to encourage healthy, younger-looking and more toned skin. Like Deep Wrinkle Remedy, this anti-aging moisturizer blends Hyaluronic acid with DMAE and skin-pampering organics like Shea Butter, Black Willowbark Extract, Aloe Vera Extract, Bilberry Extract, teas and more.
You apply this light lotion to your face and neck once or twice daily as the finishing step in your skincare routine. With my dry skin, I've been using it morning and night as a follow-up to the Deep Wrinkle Remedy. Since this light lotion sinks right in, there's no trace of greasy residue. And my skin feels seriously soft. Yes! ($70 for 1 ounce)
