Ageless Beauty: As We Get Older Our Skin Becomes Dry

It hit me like a train! One morning I woke up and my skin was dry and rough as a cactus plant. I didn’t know what happened . I woke up like that.  I tried facial lotions, creams and I even reduced down to vaseline….ah! Not one thing worked.

As the days went by I noticed my cheeks were swollen, red and there were little fine bumps concentrated mostly over my cheeks. Is this adult acne? I didn’t know what to do. It was itching and turning into a rash. My skin began to look grayish. It was warm to the touch and I was extremely uncomfortable .

At some point I thought I used something to exacerbate  the problem. This led to a trip to Whole foods. I spend hours on end reading each and every skin care product to find everything I used failed, until I tried http://www.acure.com It did’t totally get rid of the dryness but the redness and swelling went down to a minimum. The itching became mild. It wasn’t the cure I was looking for but it calmed it down enough to tolerate it.

What you ageless beauties should know is that your skin will change over time. It is at the mercy of many elements: cold weather, sun, smoking and stress. How your skin ages is depending upon you: Your lifestyle, habits, heredity and diet. Drinks tons of water to flush out the impurities definitely helps. Be sure to get plenty of rest, because your skin will tell that you are a night owl over time.

Skin changes due to age:

* The skin is more fragile

  • The skin loses elastic tissue
  • The skin becomes easily bruised  ( Lord this is me)
  • The skin is rougher

My final thoughts: You can continue to be an ageless beauty. Part of what makes you so beautiful is the fact you age gracefully. You’ll notice a few parallel  lines on your forehead  around the age of 30 or 40 yrs of age. Clean your face gently with your products of choice. Make sure that product doesn’t include bar soap. Use a white cloth and pat your face. Do not scrub. Always go in next with a good moisturizer. Like me, if it isn’t working allow your face a rest period before trying something new. If your skin is sensitive like mine, it will not be able to recover as well from various products at once. This will also ensure which product actually caused an adverse reaction. Be proud of the skin you’re in. Take care…
