The quest for youth has made millions for the companies willing to spend time and research to help us with our vanity. Someone is raking in the dough because we can’t stand looking like dough.
Anti wrinkle cream can cost $10 or $200 (I guess depends how desperate you are) When you start to develop wrinkles they have cute little names, “smile lines” “Crow’s feet” (not so cute)
It is inevitable that wrinkles will occur as a result to the aging process so get over it. What you can do, is be in control how you deal with it and stay healthy.
Sun exposure is the most important factor, not only does it dry out the skin but also leads to the generation of free radicals that can damage skin cells.
The sun is your worst enemy.
Of course most people won’t listen, and then one day look and see what other’s see
“Oh crap, they were right”
Live and learn I suppose.
Skin Care has been in your face for ages. So what skin care products are the best?
Things that effect your skin and the things skin care products are make for:
diet and nutrition
habitual facial expressions
proper skin care
exposure to environmental pollutants
lifestyle habits such as smoking
We are all doomed to age, if that is how you chose to look at it. Usually we start to pay attention to skin care when the first signs appear. Around the eyes or mouth. The unrecognizable face that peers back at you.
“What have you done with my youth?”
I suppose you could tell a teenager to start taking care of their skin, that the pimple cream is harsh and is not going to help in years to come, but you are a parent and know nothing. Their time will come just like yours has.
You can spend your big bucks on #skin products, but here are some things that can help long term.
Witch hazel is great for the skin. (no not your aunt Hazel) I use every day and it is not expensive at all.
Eat a well balanced diet…just think fruit, veggies, whole grains and legumes.
Drink at least 2 quarts of water daily, this helps flush toxins and keep skin hydrated
Do not smoke, and if you do, don’t you dare complain of wrinkles because every cig you have is a guarantee.
Do not drink alcohol or caffeine.
Protect yourself from the sun
Okay, so now, we are healthy people that don’t get sun, don’t drink or smoke…and eat veggies…but we look great!
