Is Prejuvenation Worth the Hype?
It seems that products claim to reverse the signs of aging everywhere we look. But what if you could delay the signs of aging before they even start? The answer is Prejuvenation. If you haven’t heard the word prejuvenation yet, don’t worry. We will break down what it means and if you should consider it.
What is Prejuvenation
Unfortunately, there isn’t a way to stop the aging process altogether. However, the idea of prejuvenation is delaying the aging process for as long as possible. Prejuvenation techniques encourage elastin production, promote collagen synthesis, and maintain facial volume. Later, we will discuss what prejuventation treatments are available and when to begin them for maximum results.
Common Signs of Aging
As the years tick on, it is impossible not to see some indication of the elapsed time in our reflection in the mirror. Perhaps it might be in the form of skin that was once a little tauter or the visible lines from the abundance of smiles over the years. In addition to the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and the loss of facial volume, dark spots are often another skin issue that appears as we age. For those that do not desire to embrace the signs of aging as a badge of honor but instead want to prolong their youthful appearance, prejuvenation is your solution.
When Should You Begin Prejuvenation
You no longer need to wait until your 40s to begin combating the signs of aging. Instead, Prejuvenation techniques should start in your 20s or early 30s. Instead of your beauty routine being retroactive, prejuvenation is a proactive approach. Beginning these treatments at an earlier age will help slow the aging process and help your skin look more youthful.
Types of Prejuvenation Treatments
There is a vast array of prejuventation treatments and tricks available. In addition, some prejuventation therapies can be performed at home or with the help of a skin expert.
There are many opportunities to prolong your youthful appearance without stepping foot into a spa.
Establish a Daily Skincare Routine
One of the easiest ways to prolong your skin’s youthful appearance is by establishing a daily skincare routine. A daily skincare routine includes using targeted products in the morning and night. The order in which you use your products is vital for maximum results also. Rita Almusa, MintPear’s Co-Founder, recommends beginning your skincare routine using a terrific non-foaming cleanser, followed by toner, serum, eye cream, spot treatments, and moisturizer. Follow her step-by-step daily skincare routine recommendation to start looking your best.
Use the Correct Concentrated Products
Adding potent skincare serums to your daily skincare routine can target potential issues from aging skin. If you are looking to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, increase collagen and elastin production, in addition to increasing facial volume, check out the products we recommend below.
Vitamin C Serum
Adding a Vitamin C Serum, such as MintPear’s C Your Youth Vitamin C Serum, to your daily skincare routine can significantly reduce sun damage and dark spots. Our Vitamin C serum also helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and promotes collagen and elastin production. Make sure to use this product only during your nightly skincare routine to reap the benefits. Want to know more about why you should add a Vitamin C Serum into your routine?

Collagen is a vital building block for our skin. Using a collagen serum daily can help improve your skin’s overall appearance. Our Collagen Serum helps promote collagen synthesis, improves skin firmness, and increases elastin production. Want to know more about how to regain that youthful plumpness of your skin?

Rosehip Night Serum
Properly moisturizing your skin is imperative to enjoying radiant skin that will last through the years. Night serums allow you to hydrate your skin even while you sleep. Our Rosehip Night Serum is a deep overnight moisturizing treatment. This serum also helps to diminish dark spots, wrinkles, and fine lines. In addition, this is a fantastic prejuvenation treatment since it also supports elastin and collagen production.
One of the easiest ways to shelter your skin from damage that later results in dark spots and wrinkles is to wear sunscreen daily. Focus on wearing sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher, applied after your daily moisturizer. Get the 411 on sunscreen.
We love finding at-home beauty products that help your skin look its best. Below are a couple of our recommendations.
LED Red Light & Micro-Current Therapy
When LED light and a micro-current therapy are used together, they pack an impressive punch. LED Red Light Therapy and micro-current are non-invasive at-home treatments that can help reduce fine lines and wrinkles while specifically targeting sagging skin. In addition, these types of at-home therapies help restore your skin’s tautness and promote collagen production. Watch Rita as she shares more about LED Red Light Therapy and a Micro-Current Facelift treatment.
Although dermarolling might seem intimidating since a dermaroller is covered with tiny little needles, this treatment is ideal for reducing wrinkles, diminishing fine lines, and improving overall skin tone. In addition, the needles create tiny wounds in the skin, which require a healing response from your skin. This helps to generate newer, brighter skin. Not sure if dermarolling is for you? Let Rita walk you through everything you need to know in her DIY Dermarolling article.
Including a spa component in your skincare routine can boost your prejuvenation efforts. So let’s focus on a few spa treatments.
Microneedling is similar to the dermarolling that we described above. However, the main difference is the needles used between the different devices. A dermaroller often has needles around 1mm, while microneedling uses needles closer to 2.5mm. The bigger needles require a more significant skin healing response.
Chemical Peels use chemicals to help effectively exfoliate your skin. In addition, chemical peels continue to help combat the creation of fine lines and wrinkles while combating skin damage.
Suppose you are looking for a more immediate solution to fine lines and wrinkles, then fillers might be an option. Fillers include small injections of Botox to help fill fine lines and wrinkles while temporarily paralyzing the muscles to prevent additional wrinkles.
*Not ready to take the plunge with fillers? Did you know that MintPear’s Vitamin C Serum provides the same results as a collagen injection after two weeks of consistent use?

It is never too early to start taking care of your skin. Prejuvenation treatments can quickly be done at home or with the help of a reputable spa. The team at MintPear is here to help you keep looking your best.
