Certainly when most of a new posters contributions to the forum are for a product.

If you want to see the consequences of not protecting your skin from the sun, take a look at the woman here - she's 45 and looks 75. Stephanie Bigbee Fleming charged with attempting to sell son to pay for car | Mail Online. This picture alone could keep me out of the sun for the rest of my life.

Please note that I mean the scumbag mother, not the scumbad daughter...

Are you sure they didn't get the mother's age wrong. It has to be a typo. Maybe she's 54 not 45. There is no way in heck the woman in that picture is 45. I don't care how much sun she's had.

My skin looks and feels healthier and (hopefully not just in my mind) those lines I was starting to notice aren't as prominent.

Has anyone else tried StriVectin? What are the longer terms results like?
Skin cream? No, you need to drink lots of WATER, get plenty of sleep, and exercise.

These are the thing that will go miles and miles toward a good healthy body that will age gently to not hide your natural beauty.

If you do all of these things you won't need any stinking skin creams to keep your skin young(er).

Eat lots of wild salmon. If that isn't possible for you, wild salmon pills work pretty well. Omega 3s have a wonderful effect on the skin as well as on overall health.

I quit tanning my face at age 19, and I don't just mean sunscreen I mean a big hat when sitting in the sun. I have gone to the tanning bed a few times in my life before vacations but always put a towel or t shirt over my face. I lightly tan my body and chest, but not my neck.

I have never smoked and have used retin A or retinol products to control breakouts and that seems to help. Also, I believe in eating lots of fruits and vegetables for their free radicals. I eat lots of grapes, I believe they are natures internal exfoliant and rejuevenator. Light wine drinking is also good, I think but not other drinks.

Yes it really helps, and now that I am in my early 40's I am glad that I did not burn my candle at both ends or take precautions. Too many young girls think life is over at 30 so why bother. I have a family and there is no budget for botox, etc. so I am glad I was careful!

Eat a good high protein diet, stay out of the sun, use retinoids beginning in the late 20s & use a broad spectrum zinc sunscreen every day.
