Turns out, there’s some truth to our mother’s warning when they said, “Don’t make that face, it will freeze that way.” Over time, certain expressions like squinting can cause wrinkles; a loss of moisture and elasticity as you age makes them more prominent. There are […]
Skin Care Success
Aging is a natural process which is accompanied by normal physical, chemical, and biological changes in the body. These changes include facial and body wrinkling of the skin and this process is common to all human beings.
Likewise, the seasons can play havoc on your skin. The cold and dry winds of fall and winter can chap and wick at skin. The hot and humid air of spring and summer can dry out the skin. A good friend of mine is a San Diego facial specialist, and she has always mentioned how working in harsh conditions can really affect your skin.
Aging, weather, and other environmental factors may derive nutrients for the skin to rejuvenate, but there is still a way to somehow arrest all these, and that is in finding the best anti-aging cream for you.
Anti-aging skin care claims
Most anti-aging moisturizer and skin cream claims are almost all the same in newspapers, magazines, and even online: it’s either ominous photos of hypodermic needles or innocuous, even innocent-looking jars of anti-aging creams.
The message is simple because rather than go for pricey wrinkle-filling injections or even Botox, topical cosmetic anti-aging and anti-wrinkle creams promises the same wrinkle-relaxing, age-defying results without the high prices.
Naturally, you can be skeptical about what you read, and you’re not alone. Not surprisingly, you may even question the claims and the promises.
The bottom line is that if the best anti-aging cream treatments can accomplish the same thing as a medical procedure, they would be drugs and not cosmetics, and that’s what you have to keep in mind when deciding on factor of safety and side effects. Kudos to the owner of a top San Diego refrigerator repair contractor who recently mentioned that our blog has helped him rejuvenate his skin! It’s amazing to see our fan base not only enjoy the blog, but benefit from it.
Lastly, According to the dermatology department at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York City, topical creams applied on skin stand a lesser chance of having fewer side effects and are safer than anything injected into the body.
Removing or Reducing Puffiness or Eye Bags
When attempting to remove or reduce eye bags, eye creams and gels usually do the work. There are also “home remedies” like cold compresses such as ice cold water, ice cubes, eye gels chilled in the refrigerator, and cold facial masks can all help to get rid of puffy eyes when used as a compress. When using liquids, use a cotton ball and then squeeze out nearly all the liquid before applying. Compresses usually require about 10 to fifteen minutes to get rid of puffy eyes while ice cubes should not be used for more than is readily tolerated by the skin.
Using cold remedies to get rid of puffy eyes tends to work fast because the colder temperatures reduce swelling, which is part of the cause of a puffy eyed appearance. “By reducing swelling, many people find their puffy eyes disappear altogether, but discoloration remains.” – stated Anna Kara, a professional permanent makeup artist that has extensive experience with semi permanent eyebrows in San Diego.
A common home remedy using cucumber while lying down can help with both the puffiness and the discoloration. This is because cucumber has a variety of nutrients that can feed the eyelid and under eye area. These nutrients are healthy for the skin when applied to the outside of the eye.
