No matter how many wishes we make on shooting stars, while blowing out birthday candles or tossing coins in wells, no one has yet found a way to turn back time.
Not the best news for those of us concerned about laugh lines, wrinkles and discolorations on our skin. But where magic has failed us, scientists from the Artistry™ beauty brand offer a solution.
New products from the Artistry Skin Nutrition™ collection – the Renewing and Firming lines – work to repair and nourish skin with early to moderate signs of aging and lift and repair the appearance of more advanced signs of aging.
The Renewing collection offers advanced Artistry anti-aging technology, and the Firming line provides firming and lifting technology to address the advanced signs of aging, including deep wrinkles, sagging and sallowness.

What causes wrinkles?
The anti aging products were formulated based on findings from the Artistry Global Facial Image Database with information on skin conditions and challenges from tens of thousands of people in 12 countries across the world combined with the latest molecular aging work.
Research revealed that it’s not the actual age of a skin cell that matters, but the cell’s healthiness. Healthier cells look and act more youthful, regardless of their age. And unlike age, which you cannot change, health is an area you can do something about.
“At any given age, some people may have healthier-looking skin than others,” said Jesse Leverett, a research fellow at Amway working on the project. “Our goal with Artistry formulations is to fortify the skin against factors that may cause faster decline in skin health and push the skin toward healthier-looking aging.”

How healthy are your cells?
Further research pinpointed which botanical ingredients in which combinations were best able to prevent decline of health in a cell and to restore health to unhealthy cells, Jesse said.
“This is a very important finding,” he said. “Only at Amway have we discovered a new way to improve the healthy look of skin with key botanical complexes that self-adjust to help both prevent and repair to improve the skin’s unhealthy appearance.”
That’s how the team formulated the Prevent Complex found in the Artistry Skin Nutrition Hydrating and Balancing collections and the Repair Complex found in the new Renewing and Firming collections.
Using Nutrilite botanicals
The Prevent Complex is a blend of Australian daisy, blackberry and Nutrilite™-grown acerola cherry. It boosts skin’s natural defense system by 350%*, helping to prevent and delay the appearance of early visible signs of aging.
The Repair Complex is a blend of turmeric, tea olive flower and Nutrilite-grown spinach to help restore skin’s youthful condition by 600%, helping reverse the visible signs of aging**. It also includes Nutrilite-grown pomegranate to protect skin from pollution and help soothe, calm and strengthen it to defend against premature visible aging.
“The most interesting finding was that although the synergy of the Prevent Complex causes it to excel at prevention of healthy cells from becoming unhealthy, it also can repair some early signs of unhealthiness,” Jesse said. “Likewise, the Repair Complex excels at the repair of cells that are already unhealthy, but we found it can also prevent further unhealthiness.”
Anti-aging products: Putting the science to work
Like the Balancing and Hydrating, the Artistry Skin Nutrition Renewing and Firming products act like supplements for your skin. They include makeup removers, cleansers, toners, creams and lotions to address your skin’s five key nutritional needs: purify, balance, rebuild, moisturize and protect.
They are also clean, traceable and certified vegan. To learn more about the new sets, click on the links below. And to read more about skin care, check out other blogs on Amway Connections.
