A few rules to follow for a complexion without wrinkles

It’s up to you if the traces of time are less visible on your face. There are methods which can keep your skin looking young and fresh.

French specialists quoted by “Journal des femmes” offers you 10 life principles, which guarantees a beautiful complexion, for a long time. To be noted that these rules must be applied simultaneously, consistently and with perseverance.

No-wrinkles

  • Healthy and balanced nutrition, rich in fruits and vegetables, as the main source for intake of vitamins and minerals (infinitely better assimilated and more active than those of synthesis, the pill). But fruits and vegetables are not sufficient in the absence of complex sources of antioxidants, zinc (a real doctor for your skin), copper, magnesium, selenium and acids from the  Omega 3 and Omega 6 series.
  • Sun protection is also an important detail which you need to take into account all year. Using creams with SPF is more than necessary during the summer, but is equally useful during winter, and spring and autumn. In winter, the harmful sun rays are as intense as in the summer, especially if there is snow. In cities full of glass and concrete, solar radiation is amplified. Sun rays produce free radicals which can produce severe and irreversible damage to skin tissue and collagen layer, the true “foundation” of your complexion. In conclusion, the cream against ultraviolet rays, should be used continuously. Do not forget the neck and cleavage! Continue Reading

Innocent look – The makeup that makes you look younger

innocent look After the age of 25 the search of the innocent beauty becomes a purpose. We want to look fresh and young. I know I want it every time I look in the mirror. This thing can really become possible. We only need the courage to adopt a natural trend.

If you are used to cover your face with lots of makeup, foundation and powder, your complexion will start loosing its natural color after a long period of time. Of course you can choose solarium or creams with tan effect if you really want to.

I start using foundation and powder only 3 years ago, because I noticed that during my working hours on my complexion begun to appear some red spots. I used to work in a place where was a lot of smoke from cigarettes and cigars and this smoke was entering deep into my skin. I have to admit that I’m a non smoking person and I try  to keep away from all the smoking areas as much as I can. After a period of time while I was working in that place, the effects start appearing on my face. When I got home, all the time I start a cleansing routine and OMG you don’t want to know how black and dirty were my makeup removal pads. So, I decided to start using a foundation and powder, just to protect my skin against the smoke.  Now I quit working there and during the summer I don’t cover my face with anything (besides face creams with SPF, of course). Sometimes during the cold season I like to use Vichy Flexitent, but not everyday.

"Hot" look for hot summer days

nivea-visage-expert-lift I’m just crazy about summer, but when my skin and hair becomes dry because of sun or reacts to atmosphere humidity I’m willing to revise my feelings.  Of course if we learn to counterattack the effects of heat and humidity, we can look incredible.

Here is my strategy!

If you live in hot climate (but in the areas with high altitude) dry air will dehydrate your skin, making it sometimes feel itchy, and the aspect is one of “elephant skin”. The superior layer of skin can be so dry that will exfoliate, exposing the skin even more to the rays of sun. What is even worst is on dehydrated skin those fine lines that you already have can be accentuated, and chronicle dehydration can rush the skin ageing process.
