Make your neck younger

Neck skin grows old earlier than facial skin. And also it becomes older faster than facial skin. By 30 y.o. neck skin looses its elasticity intensively. Every movement of the head causes the appearance of new wrinkles on the neck. But you can stop the loss of skin elasticity with the help of regular compresses from milk and green.

Pound a bunch of parsley and pour it with 1 glass of very hot milk. Cool a mixture a little and wet the napkin in it. Put the napkin on the neck for 20 minutes. Then take the napkin away and wait till milk on the skin will dry up. Finally apply any moistening or nourishing cream on the skin.

4 rules for selecting the right exfoliating products

The world of Cosmeceuticals (the industry name for all the wonderful products you use to combat your skin conditions) is filled with an overwhelming amount of choice. From scientifically developed facial toners to organically cultivated facial scrubs the dizzying array of exfoliating products on the market today can confuse even the most in-tune facial fanatics.

And in no area is this confusion more apparent than in the world of exfoliating products where you can find yourself staring in awe at the number of ways there are to remove the dead skin, oil and other debris from your face. With all the scrubs, creams, serums, exfoliating pads and peels in your face, you might be wondering where to start!

Now before you go walking away with a cart full of exfoliating products or perhaps not as extreme, with the wrong product, you’d be happy to know that selecting the right exfoliating product isn’t that hard if you follow these easy rules!

Rule 1 – Know your facial type

Ask any Dermatologist why most at home skin care treatments fail and they will tell you that, “the person wasn’t treating themselves with the right product for their skin type.” Knowing your skin type will ensure that you are selecting the right product, since most exfoliating products come with a system indicating the skin types that should use the product.

Rule 2 – Don’t forget a cleanser and toner

Exfoliating products are the heavy lifters in any skin care treatment, so don’t wear them out by making them remove the surface oils and debris on your face. A good cleanser and toner will ensure that all surface oils and debris on your face are removed, ensuring your exfoliating products can work to remove those dead, dull layers of skin.

Rule 3 – There’s no need to get physical

There are two primary types of exfoliating products, physical and chemical, that you’ll find on the shelf today, but only one that you should consider; chemical. While in theory the idea of little “balls” working away to remove dead skin cells sounds great, in reality physical exfoliating products use abrasives which have been known to leave scars and cause intense facial irritation. Whenever possible use a chemical exfoliant!

Rule 4 – Glycolic acid is the king

Dermatologist recommended, glycolic acid is the latest and greatest chemical exfoliant that been proven the most effective way to exfoliate your face without the harsh side effects of physical exfoliants or salicylic based chemical exfoliants. You’ll pay a little more, but the more beautiful, healthier looking skin will be well worth it!

Hopefully these four rules will help you select the right exfoliating products. We know it’s sure helped us. On to more beautiful skin!

What to look for in anti-wrinkle eye creams

Tips for picking out the best anti-wrinkle eye cream for your skin.

The skin near the eyes is the most sensitive and delicate on the face. Therefore it must be cared for gently and with care and concern. Many beauty products are even too harsh for this area of the face, but there are specialty products, such as under eye wrinkle cream that is designed with mild but active ingredients.

Because the eyes are in one of the most active areas of the face, they also happen to be in an area that gains the most wrinkles. But there are plenty of under eye wrinkle creams and beauty products designed to tackle under eye wrinkles, dark circles and the puffiness that is associated with either aging or just being dehydrated and not getting enough sleep. Typically, a daytime eye cream would aim to target puffiness and dark circles, whereas a nighttime eye cream would likely be for anti-aging purposes.

Mild moisturizers can be used in the area around the eyes, but specialty anti-wrinkle eye cream will almost always be better, as it provides better hydration and protection. Many creams have ingredients in them that combine to target existing signs of the past such as wrinkles and fine lines, while also helping to prepare skin for the future by repairing cells and stimulating growth of collagen.

There are many different variations of under eye wrinkle cream, based on skin type, desired results and ingredients. The best anti-wrinkle eye cream for you is one that does not cause irritation, redness or damage to your skin and one that you will actually want to use day in and day out.

There is no one size fits all anti-wrinkle eye cream, but you can start by looking for one that is based on your skin type. First, determine whether you have oily, normal, dry, combination or sensitive skin. (Skin type is determined by your skin’s ability to make oil, a capability that decrease with age.) Then, start reading labels and find out what the ingredients are in the product. Remember that more expensive ingredients don’t necessarily translate into a better quality cream, but it could mean a higher concentration of the same ingredients.

Whereas in the past, wrinkle creams were primarily targeted at women, nowadays, there are formulas that work effectively for either gender. Don’t be fooled by packaging and perfumes. Instead, get down to the ingredient list to find out what you’re really buying and what the true differences are.
