Some Of The Simple Things You Can Do To Make Your Skin Look Better

Aug 17, 2007
There are a lot of products on the market that claim to be the equivalent of the mythical fountain of youth. The makers of these products may actually believe this, since they have no problem charging a fortune for them. I'm sure that though they put millions of dollars to come up with slick advertising campaigns that are designed to trick you into believing it, they are well aware of the truth. Many people feel badly when they begin to look older and insecurity starts to get a grip on them. The makers of these wonder creams are happy to capitalize on your vulnerability. They use models that are probably about 13 years old; to demonstrate the product and lead you to believe that by using it, you'll look like that too. Come now, how gullible are we?

I remember when I was younger; I went over to a friend's house and rang the bell. When his mom opened the door, I gasped in horror. She had green mud on her face, her hair was wrapped in foil and she looked like something out of a horror movie. I was afraid to go into the house. She just laughed at my obvious terror and told me that you are never too young to take care of your skin. I should have listened. To this day, the woman looks great. You would never know that she was in her seventies. The point that I'm trying to make is that back then, they didn't have all of these beauty and wrinkle creams. They used what they had in the kitchen and their own common sense.

Why should anyone pay a fortune for an exfoliating mask, when you can probably find one of the best ones available, right in your kitchen cabinet? It's called oatmeal. Add a little water to make a paste and slather on your face. It will absorb excess oil and when it dries, gently scrubbing it off with a warm cloth will exfoliate your skin. You'll look just as good if not better than you would if had you used one of those creams that took up a good portion of your net pay.

If you have dry skin, then you're in luck, because the same product that my grandmother used is still available on the market today. It's called Vaseline. Yep. For a fraction of the cost of modern day moisturizers, you can rub some on your face before you go to bed at night and wake up looking great.

There's another great beauty product and it costs very little. It's called water. Proper hydration of the cells will help toxins to be carried away and will properly moisturize your skin, so that wrinkles won't take up residence. Now you know about great ways to preserve your youthful look without having to spend a fortune on the fake fountains of youth.
