The fountain of youth. That seems to be what so many beautiful people seem to be grasping for. The ability to look trapped in time. Wrinkle free faces. The body of a 60 year old that looks like a svelte twenty year old. You see that quite a bit in Hollywood.
Plastic surgery has been around for ages. Facelifts are the last resort where the skin is pulled back to tighten the skin, eliminating wrinkles.
Now there is botox. Where a toxin is injected into your face to paralyze your facial muscles, to erase the lines on your face.
Scary isn’t it? Then again, if you were gorgeous in your youth, if your face were your fortune, wouldn’t you do everything possible to preserve your youthful appearance for as long as possible.
Time is relentless. You get older every year. Your face and your body will age. But you can age beautifully. If you keep fit, exercise and watch your diet, your body can still be svelte late in life. It would get harder with time, but with enough discipline and effort, you can still keep your figure.
It is harder when it comes to your skin. Sure, there is botox and plastic surgery. An alternative you can turn to when nothing else works. Until then, there are less invasive, needle free means to erase wrinkles, or at very least to appear younger than you really are.
Have you ever tried clinical microdermabrasion. It is like a facial where the doctor blasts tiny crystals onto your face, to smooth your skin. You have to go for a few treatments but it is effective. Lines diminish. Even acne prone skin improves with this treatment. Best of all, the treatment does not burn your skin with acid and you don’t look like an escapee from a horror movie during recovery time.
These days, you can even do that at home. There are even home microdermabrasion kits you can use in the comfort of your own home.
Another line eraser is a well known stretch mark cream. Originally created to erase stretch marks but is so effective in erasing facial wrinkles as well, that this product is frequently out of stock. That stretch mark cream that women apply on their faces is strivectin.
Other than physically erasing the lines on your face, you can appear younger if you dress, and act younger. An exuberant woman, full of life looks years younger than she actually is. Look at Diane Keaton, born on January 5, 1946, which makes her almost 60 years old. She certainly doesn’t look her age.
A young vibe makes you appear younger. A young fragrance makes you seem much younger than you really are. In a study, women who wore pink grapefruit perfumes appeared, on average, 6 years younger than their actual age according to the men who were surveyed.
Finally, the lighting you appear in can make you look older or younger than you really are. In harsh bright, unflattering light, you could look years younger. In soft, gentle, flattering light, you look younger. Everyone looks better by candlelight. Installing light dimmers on every light in your home allows you to look younger at home.
