There are, literally, thousands of skin care products available promising to reduce wrinkles, alleviate puffy eyes, remove dark circles, make your skin softer, etc., etc. Most skin products work from the outside to moisturize and soften. Unfortunately, they are only temporary. They need to be used continually to achieve any results at all.
Healthy skin needs to be nourished from the inside out. As we age, our bodies naturally loose the necessary nutrients necessary to keep our skin healthy and youthful. Great skin is something that nearly everyone can cultivate.
Our skin is affected by our:
* Inner nutrition - what we eat and drink
* General health and well-being
* Emotional health, and
* Outer nutrition - how we take care of our skin
While we can't alter our genes, we can improve our skin by making the necessary adjustments in the areas we can influence. And, without exception, everyone should protect their skin from the effects of the sun. HATS & SUNSCREEN DAILY!!
