    Most of the physical signs of aging such as wrinkles, stooped posture, stiff and achy joints, obesity and poor vision are brought on prematurely by environmental factors and the practice of particular bad habits. This means that unless genetically programmed to do so, many of the cells of your body are not intended to degenerate until very late in life—if at all. Excessive alcohol consumption, cigarette smoking, pessimism, anger, impatience, pollution, excessive exposure to sunlight, inactivity, prolonged exposure to stressful situations, and poor nutrition all lead to cellular damage that starts and accelerates the aging process.

    Premature aging of the skin can be caused by the accumulation of toxins in the body, which ultimately deposit in the skin. This is a result of undigested food that accumulates in the stomach overnight due to poor digestion or excessive stress. The key to maintaining a youthful complexion is the regular removal of these digestive impurities before they damage the DNA in the skin cells. There is a simple tea that removes digestive toxins. The recipe is below:

    Boil four to five cups of water in the morning. Add the following ingredients to the water and continue to let it boil for about five minutes longer with the lid on.
    • half a teaspoon of whole cumin seeds
    • half a teaspoon of whole coriander seeds
    • half a teaspoon of whole fennel seeds
    Strain out the seeds and pour the tea into a thermos. Drink small sips of the tea throughout the day. If the tea is too strong, reduce the amount of seeds to a quarter teaspoon for two weeks and then increase it back to a half teaspoon.

    There are a number of injectable products that have various functions. Injecting neurotoxins such as Botox into depressor muscles that pull us down relaxes these muscles. The result is the lift in muscles as they become stronger, giving us a lift.
     
    Anti-aging fillers vary by density and viscosity and therefore an injector's preference plays a role. These include Restylane, Juvederm AC, Belotero, Perlane and Radiesse. The idea of fillers is to aim to create a natural look so that others do not necessarily notice.  
     
    Sculptra is a stimulator and therefore works over time, following massage.
     
    Voluma is a newly approved mid-face filler that is a derivative of Juvederm which enhances the lateral zygomatic cheeks. This creates a youthful, fresh look that is quite natural.

    Moisturize the undereye area morning and night, and as needed throughout the day if this delicate area feels dry and uncomfortable. As the thinnest skin of the body, the eye area is the first to show signs of aging. Apply undereye cream very gently by patting it on the skin, using the ring finger. Start at the outer eye area and pat to the inner area, to avoid aggravating any lines or wrinkles. It is not necessary to apply the cream directly under the lash line but rather the orbital bone.
     
    Eye creams may contain antioxidants such as vitamins A and E to protect against free radicals. Other ingredients include hydrating compounds like wheat germ oil, specific ingredients for conditions such as dark undereye circles, esculin (horse chestnut extract) for puffiness, zinc oligopeptide for wrinkles, and soy sterol for irritation. Unless specified, eye cream should not be applied on eyelid.

    Take a few minutes every day for a proper skin care regimen that will cleanse away impurities, exfoliate dead skin cells, and hydrate and nourish the newly revealed skin cells. Use an eye gel or cream to target crow’s-feet. Proper skin care will help restore that healthy, radiant glow!
