On The Rocks
As we grow older our skin starts to develop character
lines and wrinkles, which gradually deepen.
Obviously genetic inheritance is a very big factor,
but our lifestyle habits and the environment also
make an important contribution.
Although we can never stop ageing there are certain
steps we can take to delay wrinkles from appearing
and deepening — even erasing them temporarily.
We need to,
(A) Stimulate collagen and elastin production.
(B) Prevent free radicals from damaging our skin.
1) Massage your skin on a daily basis for better
circulation and tightening of tissues.
2) Steam your face from time to time to clean the
pores and soften the surface.
3) Use moisturising creams containing hydroxy acids
to help with existing wrinkles.
4) Always use a sunscreen SPF 50 to protect
your face from the sun when outside.

whole grains to prevent dryness.
6) Take antioxidant vitamins A (Beta Carotene), C, E and
Selenium to fight free radical damage.

skin but we can make it reality — even if it is only
on a temporary basis.
