We're of the opinion that so-called "expression lines" are a sign of a well-lived life—the laugh lines around your eyes and creases on either side of your mouth are merely a testament to the positive experiences you've had. With that said, in our youth-obsessed culture, these lines can serve as a reminder that we're not as young as we once were.
Such is the experience of InStyle writer Victoria Moorhouse, who, after noticing more pronounced expression lines, went on the hunt for the perfect anti-aging serum. She ultimately landed on Juara's Clove Flower and Turmeric version. "The main reason I picked this product from the thousands of other options was because Juara is known for ditching the fragrances, colorants, and harsh chemicals for a more natural approach to beauty," she writes. "But the turmeric super ingredient call-out helped catch my attention, too."
As our foray into inflammation has taught us, turmeric is one of the most powerful antioxidants, and can help "even out your skin tone, leaving you glowy and radiant," she adds. After a few weeks of regular application, her face felt supple and firm but not tight or dehydrated, and "the visibility and depth of the expression lines on my forehead were drastically reduced."
"I was … continually professing my newfound discovery to my mother," she explains. "She, all of a sudden, flat-out asked me if I had gotten Botox without telling her. While I'm not yet ready to jump into Botox for my wrinkle problems … I will gladly keep a fresh bottle of this formula on my top-shelf." Shop Moorhouse's pick below.
