Aging. It’s going to happen whether we like it or not. There are people who try to slow the process down by doing their best to avoid squinting, smiling, sunlight—and generally having fun—as much as possible. I am most definitely not one of those people, and I’ll do my best to reserve my judgment if you are, but I really hope you aren’t because we really like having fun at Arrive Well.

I mean...I want to live an exciting life full of laughter and vitamin D, and I still want to look pretty while doing it. Is that too much to ask? I think not.

First things first: young or old, daily sunscreen is always a must. According to a study that tracked 900 people over the course of 4.5 years, researchers concluded that those who used a broad-spectrum sunscreen daily had healthier, smoother, and younger-looking skin, compared to the control group that did not apply daily sunscreen after the 4.5 years were over. Yikes. Better start now.

But, let’s say it’s too late. You’ve lived an incredible life, soaking up the sun and smiling along the way, but unfortunately, you have some signs of aging to show for it. Alchimie Forever—a brand I discovered at Heyday Facial Spa in New York—has awesome products to ameliorate current wrinkles, and to stop the aging process in its tracks so you can say sayonara to new ones forming.

Why We Love Alchimie Forever for travel:

First of all, Alchimie Forever products are free of parabens, sulfate, phthalates, synthetic dyes, and gluten. And, it should also go without saying that Alchimie Forever, never, ever tests on animals. Better yet, since 1997, it’s been family owned and operated, starting with illustrious works of Dr. Luigi Polla, a dermatologist, and Dr. Barbara Polla, a biomedical researcher.

So, ladies, no need to worry—actual professionals who know what they’re doing made these skincare products. So, instead of harsh chemicals that will likely reverse wrinkles, but will also likely harm your body while doing so, their products are made out of iron, antioxidants, stress proteins, and botanical ingredientsScience, for the win!

Vogue, Marie Claire, and many other well-established and highly esteemed publications have featured these products. And, something we love? A discount: You automatically get 10% off your first order by joining Alchimie Forever’s mailing list.

Some of our faves:

But, anyway, tl;dr?

Alchimie Forever is pretty, pretty cool for your time-traveling, age-reversal needs. A brand free of all that nasty gunk that’s high-key, long-term bad for us, the gluten that many of us are allergic to, a brand that respects our fluffy, furry friends and is family owned, operated, by medical professionals?! Uh yeah, they have my anti-aging vote. See what catches your eye and let’s conquer the world (and our wrinkles) together!
