Getting older stinks! Our bodies just aren't the same as when we were younger. If I only knew then what I know now. When I was in my 20's and 30's I would have taken a little better care of my body and skin. Less sun, healthier eating and most of all better skin care. A little too late to turn back the clock now. But it's not to late to start taking care of my skin.
As we get older our skin starts to wrinkle, loses it's elasticity, and tone becomes uneven. Spending hundreds of dollars on those fancy skin care products isn't the answer. There are simple and natural ways you can take care of that precious skin -- ways to rejuvenate and tighten up your skin. Here are two links to my website for some simple natural recipes for your skin.
READ YOUR LABELS. If there are a lot of names on the label that you have no idea what they are I would suggest not buying it. There is also a lot of information on the internet about the nasty chemical sodium laureth sulfate and it's connection to cancer. One website says it is true and another disputes it. Who do we believe? I'm going to go with first hand knowledge of the chemical.
My son would constantly get canker sores in his mouth. His dentist recommended he switch to a toothpaste that didn't have this chemical in it. Now that we've switched his toothpaste, he no longer gets canker sores. I'm going to play it safe and stick to the basic and natural ingredients.
You can pamper yourself without all those expensive skin care products. You can give yourself your own spa treatments at home for dollars less. Create a regular skin care regiment now, it is so important as you get older with your skin losing its elasticity, wrinkles are forming and skin becomes dehydrated.
