As we age, gravity takes an enormous toll on our skin, dragging it down and causing it to sag. As well as gravity there are other reasons for sagging skin including a decrease in collagen and elastin production, a fall in skin cell production and free radical damage from the environment. In a bid to turn back the clock surgery is always an option but before taking such a drastic step check out the technological advances in skincare that promise a safer way to get a lift.

We live in a world increasingly full of toxins and environmental pollutants that can harm our bodies and skin. Add to this the fact that much of the food we eat is refined and full of fat and sugar, and we can start to feel bloated, tired and even at risk of diseases such as diabetes and heart problems.
That’s why from time to time many of us decide to go on a detox program in order to return us to a situation of ‘wellness’ and rid our bodies of free radical damage that can slow us down. This can involve changing our diet by avoiding processed foods, exercising more and ..
Almost everyone gets a form of acne sooner or later and, although it is most common in teenagers, you can suffer a breakout at any time in life. Acne is a skin condition that comes about due to an excess of sebum (oil) in the skin, which, along with dead skin cells, mean the pores become clogged, leading to spots and blackheads. Hormones are the chief culprits behind these skin blemishes, and boys tend to get the condition more severely since they produce more androgen hormones. Later in life however the odds are switched to women with Caucasians in particular more prone to outbreaks.
Botox injections reduce the appearance of wrinkles and lines especially those that naturally occur in the forehead, around the eyes and between the eyebrows. They do this by relaxing the muscles that form the facial wrinkles, with effects that can last up to four months at a time. They should only be administered by a qualified practitioner, since there are potential side effects if not done properly. These can include facial pain, droopy eyelids, muscle weakness and nausea.

When you’ve lived in a house for a while, you begin to notice signs of wear and tear, especially on the walls: a crack here, a chip there, a gouge over yonder.

Pollutants WILL Harm the Skin
City dwellers in particular need to take note – that seemingly healthy walk to work could be causing more damage than you think. Pollution is one of the most harmful sources of damage to the skin. The dirt, smog and dust in the environment comes into contact with the sun’s UV rays creating free radicals.
These highly charged molecules damage the skin and the body attacking cells and damaging DNA. Pollution in the air and in water can strip the skin of moisture, resulting in the creation of fine lines, wrinkles and discoloration. Long term damage du..

Cellulite is Still a Key Concern for Many
Cellulite is the bane of many women’s lives, a condition which gives the skin a dimpled, spongy look. Much time and effort is spent on banishing this unsightly skin complaint, one which frequently makes us cover up - opting for trousers over shorts even in the summer. It might cheer you a little to find that although the condition is linked to specific areas of excess fat within cells, cellulite can be found on even the slimmest of catwalk models.
What causes cellulite?
Cellulite is thought to be down to the existence of excess fa..
How to Get a Lift without Going under the Knife
It’s a sad fact of life that our faces sag as we get older, with the skin becoming thinner and less elastic. The fat tissue beneath the skin loses volume, and the facial muscles lose their tone. These changes can also be accelerated by too much exposure to the sun, and smoking, and we’re almost certainly genetically predisposed as to how fast our faces start to droop.
The Inevitable Signs of Aging
The sagging effect can be seen in our eyebrows which tend to lose their arch, giving us a ‘sad eye’ appearance, while the tissue..
Whiten and Brighten Your Skin
Nowadays we wouldn’t dream of leaving home without lathering on a good sunscreen. However for many of us our former sun worshipping days are fast catching up with us and we’re starting to see the damage which has already been caused.
Hyper-pigmentation and dark spots on the skin usually result from excess exposure to the sun. When skin is exposed to the sun, the skin cells produce a pigment called melanin, and when skin is continually exposed to the sun’s rays, the accumulated melanin on the skin appears as light spots. These are also sometimes ter..
Don’t Let Your Eyes Ruin Your Day
Ever looked in the mirror to find your eyes have bags that could carry the shopping? Then you’re not alone. Bags beneath the eyes are something most of us encounter from time to time especially if we haven’t had enough sleep. However it’s not just a night on the tiles which will guarantee you puffy peepers, there are a number of reasons you could be sporting this look. This includes allergies, stress, diet and the ageing process. Even our genetic make-up can be to blame for our eye-bags.
Swelling around the eyes indicates that there’s an exces..
Keep Skin Healthy and Minimize Pores
The pores on our faces can look particularly large and unsightly – especially when we make the mistake of studying them in a magnifying glass. Although it’s important not to obsess, enlarged pores can make skin look rougher and more aged, which is why diminishing their appearance always scores highly on our wish list.
Pores make up part of the hair follicles, sweat glands and oil glands, and without them the body cannot regulate temperature or keep skin protected. However they often become blocked making them more noticeable or even resulti..
The Importance of Balance
Everyone knows it’s importance to have balance in life: emotional balance, hormonal balance, balance between work and play, even a balanced diet. Maintaining a healthy complexion is also a kind of balancing act - you don’t want your skin to be too dry, too oily, too acid, or too alkaline. But you don’t have to stress out about how to keep your skin balanced, just as long as you choose the right skin care products.
Moisture vs. Oil
Our skin is constantly subjected to elements in the environment that can pull the moisture right out of our ski..
Smooth and Soften the Aromatic Way
No doubt everyone has heard the saying, “Beauty is only skin deep”. Supposedly the intended meaning is that it’s what’s inside that counts - that visual beauty is just superficial. Well, people may have bought the statement when the very first version was written in the 1600s, but modern women are more likely to hear the saying and respond, “And your point is?”
Of course beauty is skin deep! But we should remember that total beauty requires taking care the total body. Even if you have a flawless face, you can’t be totally beautiful if you have..
