Eat Your Way To Better Skin

If you want to look after your skin, it’s not just about the things that you put on it, and how well you clean it. While it’s true that if you have skin issues, it’s not necessarily caused by eating too much chocolate or greasy food, there are still dietary changes you can make to give your skin a helping hand. Keep Hydrated It’s important to make sure that you get plenty of water during the day to keep yourself hydrated. Water is one of the best things you can drink so keep a bottle of water in your bag whenever you go out.

Not Moisturising Oily Skin It seems to make sense that if you have oily skin, you don’t need to moisturise as it appears to be doing a pretty good job of that itself! But even oily skin needs moisture, … Read more

Everyday Things That Can Prevent Early-Aging

It goes without saying that smoking cigarettes and spending too much time in the sun can cause damage to your skin and encourage the process of early aging, however, have you ever wondered whether there are things you can do to slow that process down? Here are a few of the everyday skin crimes we commit, and what to do in order to prevent the process of early aging. Reduce the stress! If you feel like you’re stressed more often than you’re not, there could be a problem. When you’re stressed, everything suffers – including your skin, health and of course, your looks.

Sun & Skin: How the Sun Affects your Skin

Summer is in sight and you know what that means – the sun is beginning to shine. We all love a bit of sun and sun bathing can be extremely tempting especially in the UK when good weather is fleeting. It is important to protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays as too much exposure can cause the following affects: Wrinkles & Premature Aging Too much sun exposure can lead to premature aging and wrinkles; even the colour and texture of the skin can be changed because of sun damage. After years of exposure to the sun, the skin loses its ability to retain moisture and actually increases in thickness leading to fine lines and wrinkles – mainly visible around the mouth and eyes. Although these problems are cosmetic they can damage your self-esteem and seriously lower your confidence. Skin Dryness & Texture Alterations Healthy skin feels smooth, however … Read more

Secrets of Ageless Beauty

They say that with age comes wisdom; whilst that’s true, we don’t necessarily want to show our wisdom on our faces! If you’re looking for ways to retain your youthful looks as you age (whether gracefully or disgracefully) then there are a range of facial aesthetic treatments that can help. Wrinkle Removing Treatment This is the treatment that people are most familiar with – and often one that they are most wary of too. Whilst it’s true that poorly applied wrinkle removing treatment can make the face seem unnaturally smooth, when applied correctly it will simply create a more relaxed and youthful appearance. The key is not to smooth out all the lines and wrinkles in the face, as some of them should be there to give your face expressiveness. Wrinkle removing treatment has worked wonders for celebrities such as Cindy Crawford, who freely admits to using wrinkle removing treatment … Read more

Keep Yourself Looking Young with Wrinkle Treatment

Wrinkle treatment is well known as a facial anti-aging treatment, and it accounts for just under 40% of non surgical treatments carried out throughout the UK. It’s no secret that wrinkle treatment makes you look younger, and, with many people reluctant to go under the surgeon’s knife, wrinkle treatment continues to grow in popularity. One of the greatest advantages of wrinkle treatment is the fact that it removes frown lines in the regions of the mid-forehead, periorbital, perioral and nasal labial folds. Although this removal is not permanent, it does last for a considerable period. If you want to see the benefits of plastic surgery without any of the hassle, then you should consider wrinkle treatment. It is a sad fact that age catches up with all of us, we’ve all looked in the mirror and wanted to wipe away those wrinkles. Wrinkle treatment works by relaxing the facial muscles, … Read more

Main Causes Of Wrinkled Skin

As we grow older our skin begins to wrinkle. Whatever precautions we take against it, it is an unavoidable and natural part of life. However, taking care of your skin throughout life will help to make sure that your skin keeps its plump, youthful look as long as possible. Regular moisturizing and application of anti ageing products really can help to maintain the look of your skin. At a certain point in life though, you will undoubtedly begin to see the formation of wrinkles; especially around the face. There are three layers to the human skin (the epidermis, the dermis and subcutaneous tissue) and it is the impact that time has on these that is the key to understanding why the skin wrinkles. Epidermis The epidermis is the outer layer of skin. Being constantly exposed to the elements means that it is the epidermis that shows signs of ageing first. … Read more

Give your self-confidence a helping hand with Wrinkle Treatment

Looking good is important to everyone. Even those that claim not to care really are concerned with how they appear, and inevitably take some steps to look the way they desire. This need to look good is inbuilt into us, and the need to be attractive is part of our human nature. Unfortunately the effects of time can affect the way we look dramatically, and leave us not feeling like ourselves anymore. When we don’t feel like ourselves it is highly likely that we will lose some of our self-confidence and become constantly aware of the changes that time has forced upon our bodies. For many, this can become a severely limiting feeling and can really inhibit their lives. People do not want to go out in public as they feel that they are embarrassed by their crows-feet and wrinkles, and choose instead to avoid those social occasions and get … Read more
