First- my usual disclaimer- I am no health registered anything, not a medical specialist, Nor a skin advisor, never worked in Sephora and don’t wear any make up.

So why listen to anything I have to say?

Well because I have a lot of free time , I am very interested in finding the best ways for leading a healthy life in a strong body , and I like sharing my results with you on this blog.

All the above means that as usual- you need to use your brain and decide- as with everything else in your lives- what advice and tips you want to take with you, and what you will gladly forget as soon as you’re done reading this post.

Now to the post.

I hope you read part 1 last week- if not- feel free to go read it- I’ll wait.

So how do you manage without Botox?

#1. Drink less alcohol- more water.

you’ve probably heard this before- but from my personal experience- it’s true. the best way to take good care of your skin- is by taking care of what you put inside your body.

This starts with proper hydration -and I don’t mean sugary sodas and/or any kind of alcohol.

Actually -in my experience- alcohol dehydrates your body- thus your skin, plus leaves it looking a bit grayish, whereas water is free, tasty, and -well= hydrating.

#2. If you are a smoker- please try to quit/limit your smoking -it has a significant influence on your facial skin! here is a link to one of many articles on this:

#3. exercise! getting your heart pumping amd body moving is a great way- in my experience- to get a healthy look -in your face. ( pun intended).

#4. facial exfoliating.

I don’t use any fancy scrubs or what not- just my towel. be careful if you have delicate skin or any skin condition that requires special care and no scrubbing or exfoliating.

Also -I immediately follow with #5:

#5: hydrating cream! I use a cheap 17$ brand , and it does a good enough job for me. oh- and my cream has a 30 SPF , because I live in a hot country, thus remembering #6:

#6: limit sun exposure- I wear a hat when I go out after 9 AM , always have that #5 sunscreen included facial cream on, I do not go sunbathing , and I regret those long hours I used to lie in the sun when I was a teenager- because these years bite you back after 45.

#7. Hyaluronic acid serum : I use it once a week- I think it makes somewhat of a difference- in my opinion- and on my face- but again- do whatever you want.

#8. losing a lot of weight can result in skin sagging and wrinkles-I’ve seen it happen to family and friends. please fuel your body properly to stay healthy- and have great looking skin too.

#9. I understood a while ago- I look much better smiling than pouting.

#10. rest well! so important!

#11. The best tip of all- I accepted that this is the way I look now- and that more wrinkles will join the current ones, and that’s ok. I think.

I’ll let you know if I change my mind.

Enjoy – the cooliflower.

  1. Thank you for part two. I get the water thing, but have on occasion totally forgot to hydrate on being busy. It not only wrinkles the skin, I think it wrinkles my brain and makes it go foggy. If only water was free, but that in many places it isn’t and long gone and sealed off are the water fountains of old.
