How do you defy the signs of aging?
Strictly speaking, you don't. We all know aging is a natural phenomenon - and no matter how many cosmetics, treatments and even surgeries claim to stop aging, truth is, we can only do so much to minimize it.
As we grow older (and wiser!), our physical appearance changes - our hair thins out and turns grey, the skin loses its elasticity and develops wrinkles, frequent exposure to the sun results to uneven skin tone and sunspots, metabolism is slower and the body is less firm, lips are thinner, and everything else sags. Such is the harsh reality of growing old, and it's a reality that most women fear to face and embrace.
The good news is, with all the great resources and information available to us busy, working women today, we can arm ourselves with all-natural, chemical-free and effective ways to stay healthy and beautiful - and minimize the signs of aging in the process.
IT'S ALL IN THE EYES
The first sign of aging usually manifests around the eyes. This is often the first spot where noticeable signs of aging can be seen - wrinkles, crow's feet, and sagging eyelids. Since our eyes are the central feature of our face, it's important that they are well-taken cared of. So how do you restore it back to its youthful elasticity?
We understand you may already have a favorite eye and face serum, but one of the best (and cheapest!) concoctions you can whip up at home is a blend of essential oils -- jojoba, rose oil and chamomile.
Jojoba oil is a super moisturizer! It spreads well, absorbs well, and does not evaporate easily.
We love rose oil. It tones and lifts skin, prevents wrinkles and loss of firmness, and makes scars fade away! Needless to say, it's perfect for those aging eyes.
Chamomile oil is a miracle product that's great for the sensitive area around our eyes. It's a great tissue regenerator, and it can calm red, dry, and irritated skin. Combined together, these oils work up a magic potion that can leave the area around the eyes smooth, toned, moisturized and refreshed. Enjoy!
