Are Your Facial Features Disappearing With Age?

Are your facial features disappearing with age? Facial feature definition is an observational tool we subconsciously use in deciding someone’s age, according to a recent study from the Chanel Epidermal and Sensory Research and Investigation Center which studies skin related issues and facial appearance. (See Science Daily for article discussion.)

In one study, (Psychology Prof. Richard) Russell and his team measured images of 289 faces ranging in age from 20 to 70 years old, and found that through the aging process, the color of the lips, eyes and eyebrows change, while the skin becomes darker. This results in less contrast between the features and the surrounding skin – leaving older faces to have less contrast than younger faces.”

Facial Feature Contrast

Basically, our darker features lighten, eyebrows are lightened by hair loss, the intensity of our lip color fades, and our skin tones darken.

How To Get Better Results from Your Daily Skin Care

When’s the last time you had a professional facial? Well, it’s time to take care of your beautiful face, and make that appointment. I had one recently, and my skin never looked or felt so wonderful! Truly. Shannon Smith, of BeautySmith is a miracle worker! Funny thing, she used the same products I use every day, but the difference was in how she took her time massaging in the cleanser, serums and moisturizers. She has a therapeutic touch for sure, and when she did my Acid Peel and Derma Firm facial toning machine treatment, my face went to heaven!  It was so luxurious!

I’ve seen the same amazing results from Imagine by Carleen, Carleen McIlveen’s Clients! Wow!  Check out her before and after photos from a recent happy Client of hers! You really must schedule your appointment today!

At home, between facials, I try to do the same for my skin – take a little more time, massaging in each step of my Apriori Beauty  skin care like this: [Read more…]

Hot Tips for Getting Rid of Mouth Wrinkles!

Don’t you just LOVE this! Are you laughing because you have “The Look”, too? Haha!

Like rays of light streaming from the sun, there they are, without warning – WRINKLES AROUND OUR LIPS!!

Mine just decided to show up one day, bleeding hot pink from my seventies colored lipstick! It is all a part of my “Nurse Face” as my kids like to call it. The )( at the top of the bridge of my nose, the lip wrinkles, the saggy jaw, and / \ on the sides of my nose and mouth. The very signs that  I love to smile and laugh, and now gravity has gotten hold of my face and is pulling down hard, right before my eyes!

If you have every stood in front of the mirror and pulled up the sides of your face to see what it used to look like – or what it would look like with a little “Nip and Lift”….(and I KNOW YOU HAVE!) this post is for you!  We are all “sistahs” in this fight to stay looking younger longer.

“Facial movements and expressions, such as squinting or smiling, lead to fine lines and wrinkles. Each time you use a facial muscle, a groove forms beneath the surface of the skin. And as skin ages, it loses its flexibility and is no longer able to spring back in place.  These grooves then become permanent features on your face.” The Mayo Clinic.

You know what that means?  Drinking our eight glasses of water a day is giving us wrinkles! How? By taking those repetitive sips from our water bottles! We carry them everywhere for convenience sake, and take a sip here and there, and every time we do – Zaazing! Another groove is deepened, like the wheels of the pioneers covered wagon carving the Oregon Trail!

Did the Mayo Clinic say Permanent??? Are you panicking right now?

Some ways to treat are topical acid peels, dermabrasion, laser treatments, Botox, fillers and facelifts. There are also a myriad of wrinkles creams on the market.  What if you don’t want to do the above? Have YOU found a wrinkle cream that really takes care of them?  I have.

YES! I have found a winning combo that has allowed my lipstick to bleed no more!  Did you guess it yet? It’s a combination of Apriori Beauty’s Eye + Lip Age Eraser and the Derma Firm Illuminator Beauty gadget. I started using the Eye + Lip Age Eraser last June, and saw a really nice fullness develop around my lips, and even though the wrinkles were diminished, and quite nicely I will admit, I knew they were still there and that bothered me.  Then I purchased the Derma Firm Illuminator, with the galvanic, far infrared light, ultrasound and vibration therapies, and four months later, using five nights a week with a full two minute cycle just around my lips, they are gone. Yes, gone. No more hot pink “rays of sun” for this girl!

Hope you enjoyed my HOT  TIP for today!!

Thanks for stopping by and Making My Like Beautiful!
