If you want great skin give this a try:
Smoking Ain’t Hip
Cigarette smoking falls under the category of bad habits that are pretty hard to break. After learning that it not only has been linked to cancer, it is also responsible for premature aging, and the dreaded wrinkling of skin. This may give mokers (that’s how my daughter used to say smokers) a little more of an incentive to kick that bad habits boo-tay.
Yeah I am sure you get that smoking is really unhealthy for your lungs, but OMG the damage that is does to your skin is insane. First, it totally causes your blood vessels to constrict, on your skins outer layers (too much of this causes wrinkles). Second, it has been known to cause dry skin, aka sand paper hands. Third, um…if you smoke long enough, you’ll probably end up with smokers lips.
FYI- If you are not willing to kick the habit, but suffer from smokers lips, there are inject-able solutions that can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles around your mouth. Go a reputable plastic surgeon, that has experience with this procedure.
Quench That Thirsty Skin
Moisturize, Moisturize Moisturize. Our skin can’t survive without it. If we deprive it of moisture it can cause irritation, dryness, itching, and the socially unacceptable ashing of the skin (a/k/a ashy).
Rub, Rub, Rub Away
Exfoliating your skin once a week is an amazing treat. It removes dead skin, bringing the fresh new skin to the surface. It gives you a glow, that won’t stop. FYI- I am enamoured with Guinot’s Gommage Biologique
Don’t sleep in your Makeup
This is something that I have heard my entire life, but when I was in beauty school our instructor said “sleeping in your makeup can age you 10 years”. Now that is very, very scary. Get in the routine of washing your face with a cleansing milk every night before bed, tone, moisturize and sweet dreams.
