What are the factors that can make you look older, or younger, than you should?

Everyone grows old, there’s no avoiding that. And everyone looks older as they grow old, there’s no avoiding that either.

However there are a number of things you can do to minimize the impact of growing old on both your skin and looks, and your overall health. And some of them impact all of these together.

What are the factors that contribute most to you growing old and looking like it?

There’s basically 3. And surprisingly, you genes isn’t one of them. Scientists have established that genetics don’t have as much impact on our looks, and on our general health, as we age. Genetics certainly do impact on specific medical conditions, but on our overall looks and health, not so much.

So what are the 3 most important factors to how well we age and hold our looks?

1. Lifestyle.

There’s no doubt that lifestyle issues are right up there. Lifestyle plays an extremely important role in both our overall health, and our looks, as we age.

And of course the 2 go hand in hand. If we’re fit and healthy then our skin looks good. If we’re in poor health, fat and unfit then our skin will reflect that. Our skin health is just a reflection of our general health, with the exception of maybe some specific skin conditions.

So, if you haven’t realized it already, you MUST stop smoking. That’s the number one lifestyle factor that is the worst for our overall health, and skin health.

You must also exercise. You don’t need to become the next olypian, but you do need to do at least some exercise each day.

2. Diet.

And you must concentrate on eating the right foods. Fruit and vegetables high in all sorts of vitamins, minerals and anti oxidants are all great for your skin. Pizzas, burgers and deep fried food not so much.

In fact there’s a wide range of foods that are not particularly good for your skin. You probably know what exactly what they are, because you’ve heard all about the sorts of foods you should be eating, and the sorts of foods you should be avoiding, to stay in good health.

The foods that you should be eating to stay in good health, as a general rule, are also good to your skin. And as a general rule all those nasty (yummy) foods that you shouldn’t be eating are probably not that good your skin either, just as they are not good for your general health. Because of course your general health, and your skin health, tend to go together.

Diet relates specifically to your skin, as well as your overall health. Many of the essential ingredients of fresh fruit and vegetables are extremely important for your skin, and without them your skin will show their lack.

You also need to take the best health supplements you can too. Our food just isn’t packed with all the good natural ingredients now that it used to be as a result of intensive farming practices, use of artificial fertilizers, overfarming, picking fruits and vegetables for optimum transport rather than optimum health, and much more. Modern research has produced some seriously effective health supplements, you need to take them.

3. A Good Skin Care Routine.

Even if you do all that above you aren’t doing enough to ensure OPTIMUM skin health and looks. You’re certainly way in front of the general population, but it’s not the best you can do. If you’re interested in serious skin care then you need to use the best skin care products money can buy.

That doesn’t mean the most expensive, just the best, because in the skin care industry the best isn’t the most expensive.

Product pricing doesn’t relate to how good the products are in the skin care industry, and many of the most expensive do very little.

That’s it. Simple and in a nutshell. Simple but not easy we know. Giving up smoking isn’t easy, taking up exercise after a lifetime of no exercise isn’t easy.

But if you do these things, all of them, properly, over time you will be amazed at how much better your skin looks, how much slower you appear to age and how much better you feel too.

You won’t regret making the decision to incorporate these 3 factors into your lifestyle.

You read a lot about organic skin care. But do you know what it is?

What is organic skin care? How do you find the best organic skin care? How do you find the safest organic skin care brand? What is the safest organic moisturizer?

These are some of the many words that people type into their favorite search engine to find our website. There is a wide ranging and growing interest in natural and organic skin care products.

But whilst many people are interested in finding out about organic skin care products most don’t know what they are exactly. And there’s no easy way to tell you what they are, because there is no formal definition of the term.

What does “organic” mean? Search the dictionary and you’ll find something like this:

characteristic of, pertaining to, or derived from living organisms

In other words, they came from something living.

Ok, that helps a little, but still doesn’t tell us what organic skin care products really are.

For example, are organic skin care products made only from ingredients that come from certified organic sources? Perhaps. But then what about ingredients that come from sources in different countries? What are their “organic certification” standards?

What about ingredients that don’t come from farms? A certain Japanese seaweed that is used only in the best skin care products comes from the sea? That isn’t certified organic is it?

But then the sea has to be clean doesn’t it? No, there’s all sorts of toxins and contaminants in the sea, depending on where you source the product.

Are you beginning to see the problem? There’s no definition of “organic skin care”, no way to tell what it is, and no way to know if what is marketed as, for example, an organic moisturizer, really is.

Confusing isn’t it? The same applies to “natural” skin care products.

Lets think more laterally. Someone searching for organic skin care companies is trying to find something.

She is trying to find a skin care line that is safe to use, and works well. Because more and more consumers are learning that most big brand skin care products (and cosmetics and much more) are filled with chemical ingredients that may be dangerous to the health, and skin.

And even some products labeled “organic” “natural” skin care can too. Read this to find out more.

Believe it or not it’s true. That’s why there is a huge movement worldwide to more “natural” or more “organic” skin care and cosmetics. But as we now know this is no guarantee of safety.

So if we know that women looking for these types of products are looking to find safe and effective products we can then use this information to our advantage.

Instead of finding “organic” skin care products how do we find products that are safe to use and effective? (And don’t cost the earth?)

The first place to start is with the cosmetic safety database.  Here you can search any of the ingredients in any products to see if they have any risk factor to health.

And the Campaign For Safe Cosmetics has a compact that any company can sign evidencing it’s commitment to using only known safe ingredients in it’s products. The big brand skin care and cosmetics companies are notable by the fact that they have not signed.

So secondly, you can find out if the company that makes the products you’re considering has signed the compact for safe cosmetics. If it hasn’t don’t buy.

So that’s a good way to find out if the products that you are considering buying should be safe to use. Search any or all of the ingredients in the products, and search to see if the company has signed the compact.

But how do you know if the products work well? That’s another matter entirely. Perfectly safe products may not work well.

The best way we know is to try try the products yourself. See if they work for you. But of course if they don’t you’ve wasted quite a bit of money haven’t you?

No, not if you try the products of Xtend Life, because they offer you a full 90 day money back guarantee, just so you can try their products risk free.

It’s no coincidence that we consider the natural skin care line from Xtend Life to be the worlds best skin care products. It’s extremely rare to find a manufacturer that offers a refund policy. Xtend Life do it because they know their products are extremely good, so they can offer a refund and not go broke giving customers their money back.

They have signed the compact, and they use known safe ingredients in their products, in fact their brief to their scientists who formulated their products was only to use ingredients “safe enough to eat”. Read the rest of this entry
