Work Hard, Look Young
You’ve always believed in working hard. But the mental strain of being a successful woman can take a physical toll on your skin. You’ve got no problem with aging –slowly.
Need help delaying father time? “Consult with mother nature,” says Maria Langscheid, sales and marketing director of Oils of Aloha. “There’s no shortage of anti-aging products, however, finding products that are safe and all-natural can be difficult.” She recommends emollients that “soften and soothe” the skin.
Herbal remedies are making a comeback. LevensESSENTIE Gold contains 22 organically grown herbs that “produce oxygen-detoxifying agents that help improve the skin’s elasticity.”
Take the skin elasticity test. Simply, pinch the skin on the back of your hand and hold for five seconds. If your skin takes longer than 4 seconds to flatten out, your skin is 50 or older.
Kukui Oil, used in Hawaii “for centuries as an all-natural moisturizer, is easily absorbed by the skin.” It’s a greaseless formula to moisturize, condition and heal.
Tired of anti-aging products full of “mystery” ingredients? Try making your own. Organic Body Care Recipes offers homemade recipes for face cleansers, moisturizing creams and even lip balm.
