Invest in your future with Lab Series’ new Repair Serum

LAB SERIES RESCUEIn terms of skincare serums are a hard sell to men. Most of the guys I know have absolutely no idea what they’re for, how to use them or why they should add yet another step into their existing grooming routine.

In short, used morning and night, after cleansing but before moisturising, they’re a handy way to turbo-charge your regular skincare regime. Lab Series’ brand new Future Rescue Repair Serum – in its TARDIS blue bottle – is designed to “fortify” the skin’s natural protective barrier as well as improve its overall appearance, making it the perfect way to go time travelling with your skincare and, hopefully, discover a slightly younger-looking you in the process.

It works by delivering a potent antioxidant boost to promote the skin’s natural repair process and support the production of collagen – the stuff that keeps skin looking young and firm. It also contains ingredients to shift dead skin cells and strengthen the skin’s natural barrier thus protecting it from future damage. It’s ultra-light, quickly absorbed and leaves a matt finish and if you can be bothered to add it to your grooming regime (hey, it only takes about three seconds to apply)  it’s well worth a look.

If I could go back in time and tell my younger self to do just one thing (apart from not to drink Snakebite) it would be to do anything – and everything – to look after my skin for the future. Unfortunately, until there’s real time travel, this skin saviour in a bottle will have to do.

Lab Series Future Rescue Repair Serum is available from October from priced  £48 for 50ml. 

eat less, stay young

monekysYes, you can use all the lotions and potions you like in an effort to hold back the years but according to a new study published in US journal Science, cutting your calories is still the best way to slow down the ageing process.  The 20-year study, using monkeys, showed that restricting calorie intake by 30% has a direct bearing on age-related illnesses. What’s more, the monkeys looked younger  as a result (both monkeys in the pic are 27 but the one on the right is the one who scoffed less). Whether the effects would be the same in humans is still unclear (though there’s already evidence to suggest that less calories = less disease) and no one’s saying starvation is the key to eternal youth but the message is clear – you really will pay for that extra slice of pie!

PS. I should point out that I in no way condone experimentation on animals in the pursuit of information about the ageing process. And neither do Peta. For more information see this.
