Revitalize and Rebuild Your Skin with the Right Anti Aging Facial Skin Care

Stress and the environment, in addition to hormonal aging, can diminish the healthy appearance of skin. However, you can regain that youthful glow and revitalize and rebuild your skin. The secret is in using the right anti aging facial skin care products and adopting a healthy lifestyle.

Rejuvenate and Promote Healthy Skin the Healthy Way

You can combat the signs of environmental and biological aging of your skin by finding and executing the right daily skin care plan. This should include cleansing your face with the right cleansers, moisturizing with the right anti aging cream, and a nutritious diet. You should also minimize your exposure to UV rays. In fact, the best anti aging facial skin care plan is a full body approach to wellness and health.

Your skin can begin losing moisture when you are in your twenties, so it is important to moisturize regularly. Your skin’s natural moisturizer continues to decrease as estrogen levels decrease, at which time you are losing collagen as well. So you are left with dry and dead skin cells in addition to thinner, sagging skin. This is why you must properly cleanse your face with the right anti aging facial skin care cleanser, removing dead skin cells and other impurities. Cleansing should be followed up with an anti aging facial skin care cream or serum that does not contain any harsh chemicals. If possible, you should opt for anti aging facial skin care products that contain natural ingredients only. These are easily absorbed and do not contain any toxins in support of your overall health. Your moisturizer should not only restore any moisture that has been lost, it should also promote the generation of new, healthy cells.

You deserve to feel great and young both inside and out, and a healthy lifestyle will allow you to do so. This requires a healthy, nutritious diet, which should be a part of every anti aging facial skin care plan. Stay away from fatty foods and eat a lot of fruits and vegetables. Just as you should nourish your skin with the beneficial natural ingredients from the outside, you should nourish your body and skin with natural foods you take in. The right food and plenty of water will keep your body healthy and your skin moisturized and vibrant. With the proper nutrition, you can help your body, as well as your skin maintain its youthful appearance by fighting the free radicals that can be so damaging.

Finding Natural Skin Care Cosmetics

There are natural skin care and cosmetic products on the market today that can be very helpful to people who have skin allergies or other problems that may prevent them from using makeup under normal circumstances. Although these products are usually more expensive than regular makeup, which is saying a lot since makeup is already expensive; the price is worth it to be able to wear makeup again without having detrimental effects. In addition, using natural herbal cosmetics and natural skin care products is also a way to eliminate harmful toxins that are absorbed into the skin or consumed accidentally from lipstick or glosses on the lips. Regular makeup only abides by the government's regulations for safe materials to have in makeup and other skin care products which are not as stringent as one might think. Unfortunately, these regulations still allow synthetic materials to be used in supposedly natural skin care and cosmetic products that have been shown to cause diseases, birth defects and cancer in some users.


The best natural skin care and cosmetic companies have agreed to uphold a higher standard in their products than is required by the government. These companies care that their products do not harm the environment and the women and men who use them. This is an especially important issue for women, since they are typically more concerned with a proper skin care regimen from the time they are a teenager. In addition, they put products on their face daily, from lotions to cosmetics, which soak into the skin throughout the day. If these products have chemicals in them that are toxic, they can cause lasting harm to the women who use them. If more women would think about the amount of materials that are used on their face daily, which soak in and are eaten inadvertently through the course of every day, they would likely rise up and force more companies who claim to have natural skin care and cosmetic products to live up to their claims and truly use materials that are not harmful.

The environment is helped by women choosing to use natural skin care and cosmetic products since these products do not cause the same detrimental issues that other products cause when washed into the water supply. Other products can cause reproductive issues as well as immune system issues in animals that live in or near water supplies. Women who choose natural skin care and cosmetic products help to prevent these issues.

one Little Black Dress and alot of snow...

The theatre company I'm working for had a Christmas party last weekend, and so I decided to dress up, because all I wear all day are my dirty scruffy blacks backstage. So any chance to get dressed up, I'll take! Of course that is the night the sky decided to dump a huge amount of snow all over, and driving home in snow+ice is not my forte.... needless to say I slid into another lane and almost hit someone! (I wasn't wearing my heels to drive though... I had on my Vans!)

Leopard Love

I love leopard. I even have a leopard print desktop. That is why it is my mission in life (for the moment...) to find a leopard print jacket. They can be so chic yet so punk rock depending on how you accesorize. I think it's time to start scouring all the second hand/vintage stores around town...

Lush Princess

I breezed through this Flare spread called "Lush Hour" because it didn't initially catch my attention, but then I became transfixed by the Naeem Khan coat on the right- opulence at it's best. The editorial is complete fantasy; I'd love to have that coat and wear it over my pj's and lounge around the house. It really reminds me of one of my favourite childhood movies, 'A Little Princess', where the two girls go to sleep in a leaky attic and wake up surrounded by flowing silk and vases of sunflowers (why can't that happen to me??). And check out those Christian Louboutin thigh-high boots with bows in the 2nd picture down... yum!

the inspiration factor

I love the runway, but it's always people's personal styles that get me inspired like crazy. I was over at Hipster Musings and she was talking about
It's so cool, and the page literally goes on forever...

As Fall Returns

How to take a short dress from spring to fall? Striped stockings and legwarmers. Add a little bit of Gothic Lolita and you have Vogue Nippon's editorial, "As Fall Returns". I like this look... its kind of frilly and victorian but not too costumey.
