I’ve toyed with the idea of getting Botox on and off for the past four or five years but have never pulled the trigger. I’d love to see some improvement in the fine lines that have started to form on my forehead specifically, but I’ve always stopped short of making an appointment because of any combination of the cost, fear and sheer laziness. But with my 32nd birthday quickly approaching (I’m an August Virgo, thank you for asking), I had been considering dipping my toe into the cool waters of injectables more seriously than ever. That is, until I started using the SkinCeuticals A.G.E. Interrupter Advanced anti-wrinkle cream. Here’s what you need to know about this highly effective—if quite costly—product.
What’s in the SkinCeuticals A.G.E. Interrupter Advanced?
This anti-wrinkle cream features 18 percent concentrated proxylane, which helps support skin’s integrity and correct visible signs of aging, 4.25 percent wild fruit flavonoids, which help inhibit glycation (an aging reaction of naturally occurring sugars and dermal proteins) and protect against free radical damage and .1 percent glycyrrhetinic acid, which helps enhance skin’s radiance to counter dull, sallow tone.
How Do You Use the SkinCeuticals A.G.E. Interrupter Advanced?
This updated version of SkinCeuticals’ A.G.E. Interrupter was released in March 2023, and I’ve been using it two to three times a week since. The brand suggests using it twice a day, but considering its hefty price tag—more on that later—I’ve settled for a couple times a week and have still seen results. On nights when I use it, I apply a super thin layer all over my face after cleansing and applying my toner and some sort of oil product (usually the Sunday Riley CEO Glow Vitamin C & Turmeric Face Oil). After about a month, I noticed that some of the fine lines on my forehead that had been bothering me were less defined, and my skin overall feels both smoother and plumper.
