Can we talk skin care? How do you fight aging?
I just recently started Mary Kay's Timewise 3 step skin care program. My sister turned me on to the idea when she decided to start selling all of their products. It's only been three days but I am loving it thus far. The added moisture is simply stunning. This led me to an topic that was is very important.
Here are a few ways you can ensure you stall your skin from aging.
Sunscreen: Even if you're sitting in the shade, you need it. Not only does it prevent aging but it allows your skin to relax and do some repair work instead of doing everything it can to block those blinding rays.
Moisturizer: It plumps up your skins. It also allows your make-up to start with a super dewy base.
Antioxidants: Yummy foods like blueberries and pomegranates. They soothe inflammation (and they help your diet).
Omega-fatty-acid-rich foods: Mmmm, wild salmon and walnuts. They delay the aging of your skin. Brilliant!
What else? Yup, dark circles do respond to topical treatments - to a limited degree. For shadows under your eyes, use lightening agents like arbutin and retinol. Bags? Cucumber do work! So do tea bags.
