We’ve become a society obsessed with our looks.
It’s been noted that we spend more on beauty products in the west than we do on education.
Why are we so obsessed? Because it’s easier and more affordable than ever before.Anti-aging skincare technology has progressed leaps and bounds. We know more about the skin today than we ever did. There are advanced skincare products that can erase years, and of course, the plastic surgeon has perfected his trade such that procedures are easier and cheaper than ever before.
Are we justified in our obsession?
They say that beauty is only skin deep, and while I believe this to be true it’s also important to do what feels right for you. If keeping up appearances gets you through the day then, by all means, that’s what you need to do, however I must add that I’m not a fan of going under the knife. With the huge advances made in skincare products today, I’d much prefer taking the less invasive route.
Here’s a few age related tips and remedies that will help boost your skin’s appearance at any age without needles and knives.
Your skin is at its peak of beauty in your twenties, however nurture its beauty and always use at least an SPF 30 sunscreen. Of course this should continue at any age.
Avoid oily makeup and coverups. Use an oil free moisturizer every day. This is also a good time to begin using an eye cream under the eye area at night.
