Elastin

Here I am again with more skin care info for you! Today, I want to talk about Elastin. And no, it's not the stuff that keeps your swimsuit snug on your hips!But it does have a similar property. Elastin has 'snap back' to it, like your swimsuit, or like a rubber band. Elastin keeps the skin tight. Elastin keeps the skin flexible. If there is enough elastin in your skin it will retain and return to it's shape after being pulled or stretched.

Collagen Replacement: Is It Really Working?

I have some news for you, ladies. The other day a friend showed me a new moisturizer she had just spent a fortune on. She was so happy about it and wanted my opinion....so I looked at the ingredient list. And, I am sorry to say, I had to tell her that this collagen boosting promise the product was claiming was completely false! The product contained nothing that would actually help her skin to regain lost collagen. She had merely purchased an expensive moisturizer with no real anti-aging benefits!

No Surgery Face Lifts: Part IV

The search for the fountain of youth is never ending. Unfortunately, our flow of expendable cash for the quest is not...at least mine isn't. I do believe in quality, however. Skimping on skin care and anti-aging is not an option for me as I care a great deal about my body. Having said that, I don't mean that I will spend food money on products or services either. There is a balance that must come when investing in your health and beauty.

Beautiful Skin: One Doctor’s “Inside” Secrets Revealed

When we look into the eyes of another, surely we are looking at the soul of the one standing directly in front of us – or are we?

Hmmm...maybe there is something to this ancient ritual that has been practiced by nearly every culture on the planet.

What Is Cellulite?

What exactly is cellulite, anyway? Great question considering most women don't know the answer. Well, it's not some new form of tissue, a special kind of fat that attacks your legs and butt, and it is not going to go away with some drugstore creme. Cellulite is, in fact, simply excess body fat. And because women happen to store more fat than men do, it is no surprise that we end up with warehouses of the stuff on our thighs.
