We would all like to get the maximum benefit from the cosmetics products we are using - so how can we do so?

"Why we grow old", has always been an elusive question. Looking young has always been appealing to people in every culture around the world since creations beginning. A well documented historical archive relates how an explorer was searching for a fountain of youth. This area was florid, hence it was called Florida. Ascribing a name to this place was simple. Discovering what they set out to find though - the fountain of youth - was not so simple. Many months of carefully searching for the fountain ended up in frustration and eventually they gave up the search. Do you ever feel dismayed as did these explorers?

Aging is so common that few people question why it happens. Why should we give in to the aging process if we instinctively know that it is something unacceptable? When wrinkles or grey hair appear, we all look for a quick way to nip it in the bud. Why should we age, when the body does such a good job of perfectly duplicating and renewing every cell. Marketers takes advantage of the aging process by offering products to hide it. Commercials about makeup are found everywhere in mass media. Miraculous results are displayed by talented touch up photography. Can the beauty industry really be trusted when they make such fantastic claims.

Reduce wrinkles naturally?

People do not like to even consider the subject of aging, but we should not be dismayed - new research has been found that differentiates physical aging from human disease. Science now claims that we must not confuse a persons chronological longevity with their biological longevity. Appearance and age do not necessarily correspond - because people at times do look young for their age. The aging process can be slowed down if we do not add insult to injury. Of course knowing this will not necessarily make you any younger, but it will help you to understand that aging not inevitable. It is encouraging to see that people who have cared for their skin, really have made a difference, and this should encourage us to strive to do the same.

You can look younger!

There is no agreement between scientists as to why humans age. Scientists theorize that cellular aging takes place due to insufficient renewal. The body repairs severe injuries, but does it make any sense when minor skin problems are not resolved? Also, why do some animals have an extremely long life span but mankind only lives 70 or 80 years? Could it be that some kind of timing mechanism determines the life expectancy of every living creature? For example turtles can live up to 300 years or so, yet dogs live to around 14 years. Are turtles any better than dogs? Have you ever wondered why chimpanzees live to only 40 years, however, humans who experience so much more stress far outlive them. Also consider this; there are cells in our body that get replaced every 7 or so years. But it is different with our brain cells, they last for a lifetime. Does it make any sense that body cells that never experience stress need to be replaced, yet highly stressed brain cells endure for a lifetime? It may surprise you that amoebas never die. Because it is a one cell creature, it simply makes an exact duplicate of itself and keeps on living. With enough sustenence, these single celled creatures live indefinitely. Now, are you just as confused as scientists are?

Skin Care and Aging

How can we minimize aging? One way is by minimizing sun exposure. Animals are not affected by the sun, but humans are affected detrimentally. Is exposure to the sun really that detrimental? Absolutely, scientists do confirm this. Although a little bit of sun is good for acquiring our vitamin D, a lot of sun can seriously destroy skin tissue. Over-exposure can be minimized by using skin care products that contain reflective minerals. Why should we be choosy about cosmetic products? This will be the subject of the following article.
