Aging is a natural process and not a disease. We are all bound to experience it one day.
However, we can look younger for a longer period of time if we take care of the second layer of the skin (dermis).
As we age or are exposed to harsh environmental factors such as UV rays in sunlight, and toxins, the collagen fibers lose flexibility and the skin becomes dull, wrinkled, and sagging.
All we need is to naturally take care of our skin. Some factors like age related diseases such as arthritis, depression, stress, frailty, and cancer can affect the way we look.
Harsh skin care products also destroy the acid mantle of the skin. Life style factors such as poor diet, lack of exercise, alcohol, cigarette smoking, make the aging process more apparent.
Once we identify our problem areas, there are excellent anti aging remedies that can be applied to restore and prevent our youthfulness and natural beauty to the body.
