You’re an independent woman and you don’t need Father Time telling you what to do… or how to do it.
There aren’t many people who would dispute that Marilyn Monroe is an icon of timeless beauty. With her all-natural curves (that today would be considered in some circles as “fat,” if you can believe it) and easy grace, Marilyn was the personification of confidence.
Marilyn died before she ever had to go to war with the signs of aging, but her attitude towards having “the courage to be loyal to the face I have made” still rings true today.
Living in a culture that is obsessed with youth and vitally— and seemingly repulsed by age— Marilyn’s mantra is one we should all embrace… particularly as we’re bombarded from all sides with anti-aging sales pitches and a cosmetic surgery industry that’s seemingly immune to any downturn in the economy.
How do you ride this wave? How do you make sense of it all? How do you “honor the face you have made” and look as young and vibrant as you feel… without injections or surgery?
How can you make peace with nature… say “no” to the over-hyped chemicals and treatments… and still nurture your skin while winning some critical ground in the fight against wrinkles?
Here are 5 things you can do TODAY to prevent wrinkles while you honor the face you have made.
1. Kick the Habit
Besides getting burnt to a golden crisp in a tanning booth, smoking is the worst thing you can do to your skin. The tar and carcinogens in cigarettes weren’t meant to be inhaled by human beings— and it shows. Dry skin, age spots, and miles of premature wrinkles can devastate any chance you have of looking great.
Stop smoking. Not only will you look better, you’ll live longer.
2. You Are What You Eat… and Drink
Just like cigarettes, people weren’t meant to consume all of the unnatural chemicals and preservatives that are pumped into the food supply. To look your natural best, get back to nature.
Flush your body of toxins with at least 8 glasses of water every day and develop a hearty diet centered around plants and Omega-3 fatty acids. You’ll not only look younger, you’ll be slimmer, healthier, and more energetic by far.
3. A Public Kind of Cover Up
A healthy tan is attractive, yes, but have you ever looked at the skin of sun worshipers or people who spend far too many hours of their living in tanning beds? Their skin is dark, yes, but it’s also covered in dry, sagging, wrinkled skin.
And while you’ll lose a tan… that skin damage never goes away.
The sun is good for your body and overall wellness, but getting burned is never a good thing. When you plan to stay outside for an extended period, protect your skin with a sunscreen.
And avoid the tanning bed altogether.
4. Work It Out
Did you know that there are 43 different muscles in your face? That’s 20 more muscles than what’s in your arm. What are you doing to give those muscles the exercise they need? Nothing? That could be a large part of why you’re experiencing skin sagging and wrinkling.
5. A Deeper Kind of Clean
More than anything else, it’s imperative that you keep your skin cleansed and protected. One of the single most effective ways to do this is with HydraFacial Skin Solutions. Clinically formulated to target specific skin conditions— including wrinkles and fine lines, uneven skin tone and texture, clogged or enlarged pores, sun damage, and hyper-pigmentation— the HydraFacial resurfacing procedure thoroughly cleanses, exfoliates, extracts, and hydrates with a potent “Vortex-Fusion” of antioxidants, peptides, and hyaluronic acid.
The results are non-invasive, with no discomfort or downtime.
So, if you want to honor the face you’ve made and look your best for years to come, now is the time to start giving your skin the care it deserves. We hope these tips have helped start you on the path to a more vibrant, beautiful you.
