Hello, my name is Olya and I’m 50 years old.. Joking :D
My goal is to keep my skin looking like 30 even when I’m already 50. Is this your goal too? In this case, let’s perfect our being women together.
I am from Russia. When I was a kid, the skin of the Hollywood stars on American TV shows amazed me. They look like ceramic dolls! And ever since, I always wanted to know their secret. Over the years, I researched so many different methods — from homemade alternative masks to expensive skin products — testing what works, what doesn’t until…
I became a Hollywood actress myself! I want to share with you all I know about keeping the skin at its best state and how to keep it looking young as we age.
Our biggest desire is to get rid of wrinkles. Of course, no one wants to look like a dried out plum. But why does the plum dry out? Because it loses the water channel supply right after it gets picked.
We can think of our bodies in the same way. As you know, our body is made up of almost 70% water. With this, we can easily fight wrinkles with water.
By the way, the fear that our planet is running out of water is just made up. The earth’s atmosphere can’t let the water evaporate forever, so every drop that we have here is going just going around the natural water cycle. Basically, we are just drinking the same water the dinosaurs drank 65 million years ago.
Luckily, we always have the most accessible recourse to treat our skin – water.
As we age, our bodies lose moisture faster that by the time we feel thirsty, our bodies’ water level has already dropped 1% and wrinkles are on their way! A dry skin finds it difficult to reproduce new cells and fight aging.
Hydrating your body internally and externally can improve the skin structure and reduce wrinkles.
My friend Anna Krylova, who is a Plus Size Model in LA-NY, have these tips on how to drink water:
- Drink water 30 minutes before or after a meal
- Never drink water before you go to bed
- If you consumed a caffeinated drink, double the amount of water to avoid dehydration
So how can we start erasing wrinkles and battle signs of aging and sagging skin without spending too much time?
Do you know that we have a pretty dry air even if we live next to the ocean? We do, especially during winter. Even if we properly hydrate ourselves by drinking lots of water, the outside environment keep sucking us out!
No worries. Smart people already created the solution — air humidifiers. I use Ultrasonic Aroma Mist Humidifier.
I usually turn it on at night before I go to sleep. When I wake up in the morning, my skin feels great, moist and fresh already. I was surprised to notice the result after a few days! It is very simple, cute and convenient. These ultrasonic aroma mist humidifiers also change their colors. They’re so awesome! <3
TIP #2. During shower
I grew up in Russia with very cold winters. Therefore, you can say that I am a huge fan of a hot water. To snuggle in the shower for half an hour just to be warm and cozy is the best thing!
However, hot water dries out your skin pretty bad. It washes away the skin’s protective oils, making it dry and itchy.
That’s why we should lower the temperature in the shower — even a little drop will make a huge difference! Brr it’s cold, but do we want to have a beautiful, young and elastic skin?
One of the best things that can erase wrinkles is ICE! Instead of dropping ice cubes into a drink, roll it all over your face. Don’t stop on one spot – you may freeze and numb the cells. Roll it in circles on your face for a minute and then let it dry.
I fell in love with Ice Ball Maker Mold – it’s very easy to pour water in and get such cute balls!
TIP#4. In the kitchen
Do you drink bottled water a lot? What if I tell you that companies who produce it don’t actually go sit and wait under the mountain till the spring comes to gather for you fresh pure Spring Mountain Water?
In 1999, the National Resources Defense Council (NRDC) published the results of a four-year study in which researchers tested more than 1,000 samples of 103 brands of bottled water. These researchers found that,
“An estimated 25 percent or more of bottled water is really just tap water in a bottle—sometimes further treated, sometimes not.”
I personally trust more having a filter at home – I know exactly where and how my water is purified. So I got from Amazon best sellers list.
Brita Water Pitcher Filter purifies my water right away. And now I enjoy having clean and tasty water, knowing where exactly it came from.
So, these are 4 easiest tips in taking care of your skin and fighting wrinkles with water.
Please let me know if you have any questions and recommendations. I’ll do my best to answer them. I will feature the most interesting one at the end of the next episode.
Have a great day and don’t forget to smile while you still have teeth!
