Ladies I have to ask? What!
I was reading the NBC news online when this article popped up about various plastic surgery procedures and I just had to read it! One new fad was quite disturbing to me. Some people look fine with a little nip or tuck here or there granted! I am not against or for any procedures what I am for is that a person feels good about themselves. Sometimes feeling good about oneself may require a little help on the outside to meet today's so called standardized looks if that is what makes someone happy and feel good about themselves. I will say these Stars are making a fortune off their well let's just say "freak" bodies that a normal person will never have nor did they without a lot of expensive surgery. The Stars created these looks for a reason. Their own market niche and most likely their own lack of self esteem and needing attention. I just think we as women may want to remember that these are our only bodies. We can take better care of ourselves through a healthier lifestyle of healthy eating, exercise and loving ourselves. If that still isn't good enough to help us feel better about ourselves well then there is the old fashioned way! Try the latest hairstyles or wigs, new clothes, new or permanent makeup, and hey there are a lot of Spanx stuff out there that will give you a big butt smaller waist, stomach, thighs and bras that we all know will do a lot of false advertising and add several cup sizes! Wow! Look at all the options out there that are not invasive and don't put someone's life at risk! Again, it is just a option. The one thing in this entire article that really threw me and I found disturbing was that women once having had Brazilian waxes suddenly noticed their lady parts. Worse they felt insecure about them and had plastic surgery to remove some of them to an extent. Yet it made things uncomfortable to put it politely. Maybe I am old at 52 or maybe I am ahead of the curve I am not sure. I have never had a Brazilian wax. Personally, I have been shaving my underarms, all my leg from ankle to all the lady part areas since I was 10 years old. I can't be the only one who has any idea what the lady parts look like! Everyone has to tinkle right? Can no one at least feel them or see the slightest? I mean come on! Is this the most ridiculous thing ever? Has the women become so square? Prudeish? Uptight? Is it about our bodies, our lady parts only, sex? I just have to ask how is it possible? Why not just leave the lady parts alone why have them surgically altered? In my mind that is beyond crazy! Isn't that called self mutilation or worse? Read the article see what you think and check out their videos about the butt injections gone bad. I mean ouch! Whatever anyone decides to do please have it done by a legitimate professional with all the best credentials and in their medical offiice. Don't go off the grid tempting as it is! Please, we don't want to lose you or have anything happen to you at all. We your sisters out here love you and accept you for you no matter what. Reach out we are here for you. http://nbcnews.to/1ape9jL
Stop Washing Your Face in The Shower - Here's Why.
Women with sensitive skin, acne prone skin, or dry skin have probably heard a common refrain from their expert friends and family about how their shower time could be exacerbating their problems. It's such a common refrain in the skincare world that some people question whether you should even shower daily — for reasons other than the potential harm to your face. What kind of shower is best for your facial skin? Long or short? Is it better to bathe with cold or warm water? The truth is that the verdict on showers and their benefits for the skin on your face isn't all that clear, and rather than accepting one opinion as "gospel," you should consider your own skin needs and how showering may help or stop you from getting your face what it needs in order to glow. What Happens to Your Skin in a Shower? The question of what showering does to your skin is perhaps the most important information in this discussion — and there are already some disagreements. However, the general consensus is that showering daily can have a few negative effects on your skin and the skin on your face. In the worst-case scenario, daily showering can exacerbate skin problems such as dry skin, itching, cracking, and bacterial overgrowth. Showering can help reduce skin bacteria, which is sometimes beneficial — but not always. While it may come as a surprise, bacteria are not all bad. In fact, bacteria and the health of your skin have a close relationship. Bacteria are necessary for the health of your skin. For example, in order for your immune system to function properly, it must be exposed to microorganisms on a regular basis. Keeping your skin clean and free of dirt and bacteria does not make you healthier; instead, it prevents your immune system from properly training its antibodies for future encounters. As a result, the antibacterial soaps that many people use in showers and hand scrubbing situations may kill off the important 'should be here' bacteria. When this happens, you're merely making room for more dangerous bacteria to colonise. And this is a major concern for people who take hot showers frequently, because excessive showering can cause your skin to dry and crack over time, allowing these more dangerous bacteria to enter your body beneath the skin barrier. This can lead to major issues, infections, and problems in the future. Is it bad to wash your face while you shower? Despite all of our warnings, there are still plenty of reasons to take our advice with a grain of salt. While a celebrity dermatologist may recommend you not to wash your face during your shower routine, the reality is that there is very little evidence to suggest any danger to your face in particular. We couldn't find any studies that suggested that washing your face in the shower could cause an increase in acne, wrinkles, dryness, or skin conditions like rosacea or eczema. The wrong products, many of which may be in your shower, are what will cause your skin problems. For example, the American Academy of Dermatology Association (AAD) recommends avoiding alcohol and abrasive cleaners, as well as sponges, washcloths and mesh cleaning tools that can irritate your skin. That means that many of the tools you use to wash your body (and may have in your shower) aren't good for your facial skin. And, after a thorough body scrub, remember not to scrub too hard on your face. Cleansers should be applied with your fingertips, and the cleanser should be removed with the same care. And, as the AAD points out, there's the issue of water temperature, which they recommend for face washing be "lukewarm." This is likely unhappy news if you enjoy hot or cold showers. Is water temperature important? You're probably wondering, "Why the big deal about hot water?" What about saunas, steam rooms and hot towels? "What exactly is it about my shower water that is so bad for my face?" As it turns out, there's a lot that can go wrong with it. Excessively hot water has been linked to an increased risk of irritation and inflammation of the skin on your face, according to research. As far as we're concerned, this does not imply that taking a shower is bad for your face. It does, however, imply that your face-specific routine may be best staged outside of the shower, where you can control temperature, reduce the risk of injury due to water temperature fluctuations, and generally do better work for your skin health. You may be wondering about the benefits of steam and whether they mitigate the risk of irritation. Steam and hot water have numerous benefits for your skin — and the things that live in your skin. Steam can loosen and soften buildup, making blackheads and other solid blemishes easier to remove from your pores. Steaming your skin can also provide additional benefits for serums and moisturisers later on. Topical products can often be better accepted by your skin by opening up your pores and making your skin more permeable. And, contrary to popular belief, steam is beneficial to your skin's relative moisture levels. It can not only help you add water to your individual skin cells, but it can also help make subsequent products like moisturisers and serums more effective. Finally, and perhaps most importantly, steam increases blood flow in your skin's blood vessels, which can lead to increased collagen production and, eventually, plump and firm skin. All of this being said, it is recommended that you use a hot towel or bowl rather than a shower, as this gives you more control over the time and level of contact water has with your face, as well as the ability to adjust the temperature. These things are important for people who have rosacea and redness, as well as those who have broken capillaries. Women with sensitive skin should exercise caution as well, as steaming can aggravate inflammatory conditions (which means people with eczema should also be wary). When You Should Wash Your Face Instead So, the shower is off, and we both agree on that. So, where do you wash your face? When, where, and why? You should wash your face twice a day, plus more if you get sweaty, as you might after exercise or time in the sun. In most cases, washing once in the morning and once at night is sufficient. According to what we can tell, you're fine to do one of those washes right after a shower — lukewarm water and a non-abrasive, non-alcoholic cleanser are the gentle combination you'll need. Just remember to be a little gentler than you would be with your back, legs, or feet. By the way, now is the ideal time to apply a moisturiser. Hot showers (especially long ones) can dry out your skin, and for people with psoriasis and other skin issues, they can aggravate existing problems. The best time to replenish lost moisture and protect yourself for the day ahead is after your post-shower face wash.

How to Tell If A Leather Jacket is Genuine & Real
Whether you are shopping for a new leather jacket or looking to evaluate the genuineness of apre-owned piece, it can be delicate to tell the real thing from an reproduction. So how do you know if a leather jacket is authentic? Then is what to look for. 1. Look at the Leather The first thing you want to do is look at the leather. Leather is a natural material, so it will have variations in color and texture. This can be from different parts of the hide or animal, as well as how it was tanned. If you see any inconsistencies in color or texture-such as lighter spots in an otherwise dark leather-you may have a synthetic material instead of genuine leather. You'll also want to check for natural defects like scars or blemishes that are indicative of real leather but not synthetics. And if you're looking at suede, look out for different thicknesses. While some suede jackets might have thicker patches because they were cut from a thick section of cowhide, faux suede tends to be made with thinner pieces glued together on top of each other-so if your jacket has one continuous layer throughout its entire surface area (as opposed to being patchwork), then chances are good that it's genuine suede! 2. Smell the Jacket You can always tell a genuine leather jacket by smelling it. If the scent of leather is strong and distinct, then you know that the jacket is made from real leather and not just an imitation material. Leather jackets are made from animal skin, so it's no surprise that they have a distinct odor. It's important to understand that there are two types of animal skin used in making leather jackets - goat (goatskin) and cow (cowhide). Goat leather has a lighter weight than cowhide, but both materials are durable and sturdy enough to withstand regular wear throughout the years. 3. Feel the Leather If a leather jacket feels thin, light, and flimsy, it's probably fake. The thickness of the genuine article should give it a solid weight that feels substantial in your hands. This is one of those occasions where you can trust your instincts-if a jacket feels thin and delicate, chances are good that it isn't a real leather. The next test involves touching the surface of the garment to assess its smoothness and flexibility. Genuine leather jackets feel soft under your fingertips when you run them over any part of the surface; if they're stiff or rough to touch then they're likely not real leather either. Another way to tell if something is made from genuine cowhide is by holding up several different jackets against each other until you find one that matches yours exactly in terms of coloration (or at least close enough). If none seem like viable matches for yours then this would support an assumption that what you have may be fake after all. 4. Tug on It If you've never had the opportunity to touch a real leather jacket before, it may be hard to tell if your new purchase is genuine or not. However, with practice, you'll learn what real leather feels like. When you run your fingers over the surface of a genuine leather jacket, it will feel smooth and supple. It won't have any rough spots or scratchy bits. Instead, it will feel soft and pliable under your touch. If a piece of clothing feels too hard or too stiff, then this is usually an indication that it isn't made from genuine materials. This can happen because someone has treated their garment in order to make them look more authentic (and sell for more money), but these treatments tend to wear off over time and leave behind something that looks quite different than real leather. 5. Check for Scars on the Hides Real leather has scars. It's a sign of quality and craftsmanship, and you can tell the difference between real and fake by looking at them. If the scars on your jacket are too clean, it's probably not real leather. And if they're too deep, then it's also likely not genuine leather. The best way to identify if your jacket is made from high-quality hides is to look for small imperfections like these-they indicate that the hide had been carefully selected for its quality before being processed into your item of choice (in this case, a jacket) 6. Check out the Stitching There are a few things you can look for when examining the stitching of a leather jacket. First, look to see if the stitching is straight and even. Next, compare the width of each stitch to those around it to make sure they're all uniform. Make sure that there aren't any large gaps between stitches on any area of your garment (if there are, this could mean that someone tried to hide an old repair). Finally, take note of how close everything is to being perfect-this will help you determine whether or not this leather jacket was made with care and attention or if it's just another cheap knockoff. Conclusion Given the right information, it should be relatively easy to tell if a leather jacket is genuine or not. If you are shopping online and do not have the chance to feel the jacket in person, then make sure that you can view multiple photos of it from different angles. In general, designers will use only real leather as they know it is a premium material that helps maintain their brand's reputation. If possible, ask a friend with more experience in this area for some guidance.
3 Lifestyle Habits that can Cause Acne Breakouts
Your acne is coded in your genes and governed by your hormones. While these two factors are not in your control, your lifestyle which affects your skin equally, IS. Here are the most important lifestyle changes that you can make to reduce your acne breakouts... 1. Clean your mobile phone Your mobile phone is pressed against your cheeks while you chat away with friends. The bacteria from your skin gets transferred on to the screen and stays there till it gets pressed on your skin again. Besides this your phone may have food residue from the time that you were eating and texting and dust from lying on dirty surfaces. If you have acne prone skin, make sure you sanitize the surface of your mobile phone at least once every day. 2. Wash your face less often If you have oily skin which is prone to breakouts, chances are that you are washing your face more than twice daily. That, coupled with acne treatment AHA toners, salicylic acid serums and retinol night creams can over dry your skin. This leads your skin to produce even more oil which in turn feeds acne causing bacteria. Wash your face maximum 3 times a day. Once in the morning when you wake up and shower, once before sleeping at night and an additional time after a workout or outdoor exposure. 3. Reduce your carb intake Refined carbs such as bread, pasta and fried food have a high glycemic index. They increase blood sugar and cause a spike in the hormone Insulin. High glycemic foods are very inflammatory for the body and also disturb your gut bacteria. This in turn disturbs your skin microbiome. Increase your intake of fresh vegetables and salads instead. These are loaded with antioxidants which help your skin in healing faster. If you have been struggling with acne breakouts for a while, getting a little help from your dermatologist could go a long way in getting rid of your acne.
Vitamin C Can Get Rid Of Acne - Surprised?
Vitamin C is well-known for its benefits to healthy skin and the prevention of premature ageing, but its abilities in the treatment of acne are, to be honest, underappreciated. Vitamin C in various forms is beneficial to your skin, and the right vitamin C product may aid in the treatment of persistent acne. Of course, there are limitations — skin care products aren't magical, and topical vitamins are only a part of the solution. But we have a feeling that once you learn more about what vitamin C can do for you, you'll be adding another letter to your skin care alphabet. What Does Vitamin C Do? Vitamin C is a water-soluble nutrient that primarily serves as an antioxidant in the body. L-ascorbic acid is another name for it. Vitamin C benefits include assisting your body in combating free radical damage, which are damaging compounds produced in a variety of ways that can harm your cells and cellular function. Vitamin C also aids in the production of collagen and can aid in wound healing. A typical adult requires between 75mg and 90mg of dietary vitamin C per day, which is primarily obtained from fruits and vegetables, most notably citrus, which can contain natural vitamin C or be fortified with it. In some cases, vitamin C supplementation is also beneficial. Depending on the type of acne, you could be dealing with infection, inflammation, or inefficient cell production. It turns out that vitamin C can help with all of this. The Effects of Vitamin C on Your Skin: What Are the Advantages? Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that fights free radicals caused by UV rays, smoke, and other environmental pollutants, which can impair normal dermal cell and collagen production. These are essential ingredients for keeping your skin looking vibrant and glowing — as well as acne-free. With less vitamin C, human skin is unable to combat the effects of free radicals. But that's not all you're missing out on if you don't get enough vitamin C. In brief, here are some of vitamin C's acne-fighting benefits: Healing Wounds Vitamin C has been shown in studies to increase the effectiveness of your body's wound-healing system. While acne may not resemble the lacerations from a slasher film, those little inflamed welts can become open wounds if picked at. To summarise, vitamin C can aid in the repair of damage. Vitamin C can also help to fade acne scars and even out skin tone issues. Defeat Wrinkles Okay, so this isn't directly related to acne, but vitamin C's ability to reduce wrinkles promotes healthier skin, which leads to fewer signs of ageing in general. The same factors that reduce the likelihood of wrinkles also reduce the likelihood of acne. Aside from the fact that vitamin C has been linked to increased collagen production, Combat Dry Skin As a topical vitamin, vitamin C can help with wrinkles and acne by reducing dry skin, which can cause dead skin cells to build up in your pores if left untreated. This is the first step in an acne outbreak, so while it will not cure existing acne, it will help to prevent some future acne. Combat Inflammation The ability of vitamin C to reduce inflammation is perhaps its most important effect. Reducing inflammation can help you manage certain types of acne, keep your skin functioning at its best, and keep you looking good. More importantly, anti-inflammatory properties can help with dryness, itching, and other issues that may cause acne flare-ups in the future. Other Acne Treatment Options Vitamin C can help you fight everything from acne to fine lines and the signs of ageing on your skin. However, vitamin C is not a stand-alone skin saviour. There are other acne treatments available, many of which can be used in conjunction with vitamin C. They are as follows: Retinoids Retinoids can aid in the treatment of a variety of skin conditions, including inflammatory acne. They can also be used as a preventative measure to maintain skin health and radiance. Tretinoin is one of the most widely used retinoids because it is effective at reducing dead skin cells and has been used safely for decades. It is usually necessary to obtain a prescription. There are additional advantages to using topical retinoids, such as the fact that tretinoin has been shown to aid in collagen synthesis. Antibiotics Antibiotics work by destroying the bacteria that cause acne, and the right one can be just what your skin needs to help it fight a particularly stubborn case of inflammatory acne. Salicylic Acid Salicylic acid is a compound that has a number of skin-care benefits. It is effective at removing dead skin cells (exfoliating) and has antifungal and antibacterial properties. It has anti-inflammatory properties as well. It's also more accessible than some retinoids because it's available without a prescription. Benzoyl Peroxide A topical disinfectant, such as benzoyl peroxide, has peel-like properties similar to retinoids, but with the added benefit of killing bacteria. Burning, dryness, peeling, or stinging are all possible side effects, but they are usually minor. Acne and Vitamin C While vitamin C is a great ally to have on your side in the fight against acne, there's a lot more available to help you hone your skin care. Some of these treatments include topical retinoids, salicylic acid, and even certain antibiotics. A vitamin C serum may be beneficial to your skin, especially when combined with a retinoid. However, the best way to find out what will work is to seek professional help from a healthcare professional. You may be able to get your daily vitamin C at breakfast, but if your acne is out of control, don't rely on home remedies. Help is available; speak with someone today to reclaim the face you adore.
Why are French Tip Nails So Popular?
French Tip nails are undoubtedly one of the most popular styles of manicure looks. They bring a subtle and classic feel, while also being extremely elegant – allowing for proper use on any formal or casual occasion. Let’s talk about how French Tip nail strips started, and how they became one of our most popular lines at Danni & Toni. Let’s talk about why french tip nails are popular What Are French Tip Nails? What are French tips, and how do you achieve this amazing look? French tips refer to the white polish on the tips of the nails, above the base of the nail which is traditionally painted in a pinkish nude tone. Traditionally, a classy white is used on the tips with a pale shade on the base, followed by a top coat. But over time, French manicures have expanded to a wide range of shades. The mix of the clear nail appearance combined with some white or other color design elements makes these nails distinctive from other solid color or design nails. Are These Nails Actually French? You may be surprised to learn that the French tip style did not originate in France itself. Instead, the trend actually has its roots in 1970s Hollywood. Jeff Pink, the founder of a nail polish company first came up with the term, although the look was seen in California going back to the 1930s. So why are they called French? Well, the name sounded more exotic and appealing to customers, and also the style has some European characteristics in appearance. It wasn’t long before the French manicure took over in the US and also around the world. Now in France, they also use the term distinguishing it as French style. How About Clear Nail Strips? While clear nail strips are not technically French Tip, they use the element of the base coat, which a design can then be placed on top of. Clear gel nail wraps are a simple and fun way to make your natural nails stand out, while also giving them a special shine that looks great.

Dimpleplasty - Get Dimples With A Quick And Easy Procedure
Cher, Mario Lopez, and Jennifer Garner are all famous for their dimpled smiles. They recently inspired fans to get their own dimples. “Everyone in Hollywood has them, and everyone wants them,” say plastic surgeons. Men who want the “Mario Lopez” look are also interested in the procedure. So, what is Dimpleplasty? Natural dimples are caused by skin adhering to underlying tissue. If someone smiles, a dimple appears. While some dimples last into adulthood, many disappear as a child grows and the cheek muscle matures. The latest cosmetic surgery trend is Dimpleplasty in Mumbai. Cosmetic surgeons now create four times as many dimples as they did a few years ago. What is Dimpleplasty? A tiny incision inside the patient's cheek creates dimples. No cuts on the outside of the face. The remaining cheek muscle is sutured to the skin's underside with dissolvable suture. An incision on the inside of the cheek creates a dimple. One local anaesthetic is used for the entire outpatient procedure. The dimples will be deeper at first, but will look natural after a few months. Initially visible whenever the patient smiles, the dimples gradually fade away. What is the Dolly Dimple? Dr. Siddharth Prakash, one of the few cosmetic surgeons who offers the service, says the “Dolly Dimple” is an updated version of the original dimple creation surgery in Mumbai that is more predictable. "Dimples can be more personalised," said Dr. Siddharth. “Patients can design their own dimples, long, short, deep, shallow, etc.” The patient can also choose the location of the dimples on their cheeks. Dimples are cute and brighten a person's smile. They are even lucky in some cultures.
8 Habits That Cause Premature Wrinkles And Skin Aging
People of all ages have beautiful skin. But as time goes on, the glow of your skin can fade. Cut back on these habits that can make your skin look older before it's ready. 1. You can get dark circles and fine lines if you keep rubbing your eyes all the time. People get under-eye bags when the muscles around their eyes weaken as they get older. If you keep rubbing your eyes, it will be fine. It won't have any long-term effects. Continuous eye rubbing can cause an issue by increasing inflammation in the area. Keeping your eyes rubbed all the time can make the lines around your eyes look worse. I often see this as a problem for people with eczema, who may rub their eyes too much because they are itchy and hurt. Some people call them Dennie-Morgan lines because they look like a black eye when they get them. That's not all. It can darken the skin around the eyes if you pull, tug, and rub on the skin there. Determine what is making you rub your eyes. You should see an allergist to figure out what's causing your eyes to itch and to treat your symptoms. A dermatologist can help you figure out what kind of treatment is best for your eczema. 2. Not getting enough sleep hurts your skin's ability to grow new, healthy skin. A good night's sleep is important for energy, concentration, and having a good complexion. At night, the skin is in a state of renewal, and it starts to grow new skin. When you don't get enough sleep, it can show on your face. A study of 60 women published in Clinical and Experimental Dermatology in January 2015 found that women who didn't get enough sleep, which was defined as five hours or less, had more signs of ageing, a weaker skin barrier, and less satisfaction with their looks. You can get enough sleep if you follow the National Sleep Foundation's four tips: Every day, go to bed and wake up at the same time. This will help your body get used to the same times. Set up your bedroom in a dark, cool, and quiet way. Finish your meal at least two to three hours before going to sleep. If you drink a lot of caffeine in the afternoon, you should cut back a lot. 3. It can be hard to get a clean line when you use a straw. Were you born with a straw? It may keep your teeth from getting stained, but it can also make your mouth look older. This is a sign that your skin is getting older. There are muscles in the area around your lips when you drink from a straw. There is a better chance of getting that crease in the skin if we work those muscles more. It's the same reason that people who smoke get wrinkles around the mouth, like they do. To find the lines, you can keep your lips pursed over and over again. The best way to avoid straws is to not use them at all. 4. When you are stressed, cortisol is released, which causes collagen to break down. Whenever we are stressed, we feel it in every part of our bodies. Your skin is part of this. If you're always worried or can't sleep, your body is always making stress hormones, which can make you look older than you should. Inflammation and sagging skin are both caused by the stress hormone cortisol, which also breaks down collagen. Stress, because of the increased inflammation, has been shown to speed up the ageing process in studies. Stress can be reduced primarily by making changes to your lifestyle, like eating well, getting enough sleep, and practising meditation. All of these things have a big impact on the way your body and face look as you get older. Find out what truly relaxes you and do it often. 5. Using makeup to protect your skin from the sun exposes your skin to UV rays. SPF is the best way to keep your skin from getting older before it should. Ultraviolet (UV) light exposure caused about 80% of the visible signs of ageing on the face, like wrinkles and changes in pigmentation. You may not be protecting your skin from harmful UV rays if you only use makeup that has SPF in it. It blocks UVB rays but not UVA rays, which cause fine lines and brown spots. Most makeup blocks UVB but not UVA. As a bonus, to get the sunscreen benefit, you'd have to put on a lot of make-up. Makeup will add extra protection to sunscreen, but it's likely not enough on its own. Before you put on your makeup, put on a broad-spectrum SPF sunscreen or moisturiser. Broad-spectrum means that the product will protect your skin from both UVA and UVB rays, which can make your skin age. As well as their makeup, people need SPF to keep them safe. SPF 30 is a good level of protection for most people. 6. Sun damage can happen to your neck and hands if you don't pay attention. Ultraviolet light is the single most important thing you can do to keep from getting older. Even if you use sunscreen every day, you might forget about your neck and hands. This might be why they're the first places to show your age. Previous research found that women with visible veins and wrinkles on the hands were perceived to be older than their peers with plumper hands, even if they were the same age. In time, we lose some of our ability to move freely. The hands lose volume and fat, which makes the skin clear and wrinkled. Your skin kind of thins out, so your hands don't look as big. In this picture, you can see the veins a little better. They look wrinkly. As a result of long-term sun exposure, the skin on the neck can turn dark and look older. In the same way, you can try to avoid harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays. If you must go outside, it's the easiest thing to do is find shade and wear a hat with a brim and sunscreen. She says that some of her patients wear gloves that protect their hands from the sun when they drive. 7. If You Don't Wear Sunglasses, You Risk Damage to Your Eyes and the Skin Around them. As we've said, UV rays can damage the eyelid, cornea, lens, and retina. Sunglasses protect the eyes from these rays, which can also damage the skin around the eyes. These movements like squinting, laughing, and frowning can make your face look older over time. The more you use your muscles to make these movements, the more wrinkles and lines will show up when your face is at rest. Even in the dead of winter, you should wear sunglasses. The more protection you have, the better off you will be. Look for a pair that says 100% protection against both UVA and UVB or 100% protection against UV 400 on the package. 8. Soap can make wrinkles worse. Despite what your grandparents say, soap bars are often full of harsh detergents that strip the skin of its natural oils, making it dry and flaky. Even though dry skin doesn't cause wrinkles on its own, it does make them easier to see. There are things that can cause allergies and rashes on your skin when you have dry skin. These things are things like bacteria and viruses. Because your skin's barrier is weaker when it is dry, this is the reason why. A lot of people have trouble with their skin, so they have to be careful with the soap they use. If you have sensitive skin, eczema, or rosacea, then yes, the soap you use will have an effect on how your skin looks and feels. You should use a cleanser that is hydrating to clean your face. You should look for the words gentle and moisturising on the package. Avoid using deodorant soap or products that could dry out your skin, like alcohol, fragrance, retinoids, or alpha hydroxy acid. After you wash your face, apply a moisturiser with antioxidants like vitamin C.
