Want to know Posh Spice’s secret? Which one, you ask? Snagging England’s hottest footballer; remaining pin thin after birthing three boys (edamame, apparently); or landing the Juergen Teller-photographed Marc Jacobs campaign for 2008? While answers to these questions may remain as elusive as Posh Spice’s smile, we now at least know what she uses on her dial (that’s face, for you Yanks).
According to the Lancashire Evening Post, Ms. Beckham chooses to combat aging with the natural anti-wrinkle cream, Natralox. Just like the other ‘ox, it relaxes the 15,000 facial expressions we all use everyday to reduce the signs aging. But unlike botox, which pumps your brow full of Botulinum toxin, Natralox is painless, non-evasive and effective. Its dramatic results can be attributed to four natural ingredients — synthetically derived Argireline, Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin A and Vitamin C. This combined with its zero tolerance approach to parabens, chemical preservative and artificial fragrances, earns it the title of the “supernatural” wrinkle fighter — the Wrinkle Whisperer, if you will.
So, why are these ingredients so special? Argireline,the key ingredient, has been scientifically shown to reduce the appearance of wrinkles by up to 30% in 30 days — although it’s safety and effectiveness remain unproven. Hyaluronic Acid is intensely hydrating and can plump the skin to give it a smoother, fuller effect. Vitamin A helps firm the dermis while Vitamin C is a key component in the production of collagen. All counted, some say Natralox is the skin’s equivalent of drinking from the fountain of youth.
No wonder Posh is so smitten. Finally, there’s cream she can pig out on.
