I have been using Shielo's Anti-Aging Complexion Moisturizer for 6 weeks now and there is a noticable difference. Many of my fine line wrinkles have disappeared, specially around my mouth. Other wrinkles are less pronounced and visable. Use it!

Great article, packed with useful tips. Can't see myself putting egg white on my face just yet :D Buzzed up :D

What an outstanding piece of work.

I am 32 yrs old and while I don't really have deep wrinkles yet! I use the Olive Night Creme (from Made from Earth) - it does help out with deep creases on the sides of my mouth, commonly referred to as laugh lines. But it has smoothed these out and made a more soft and smoother texture. This even helped out my frown lines as well. Some describe a tingle sensation, but I dont feel that.

I'm 45 years old and I'm proud to say that I have neither wrinkles that I need to hide yet nor gray hair. I think I would attribute this to my happy go lucky nature. It's important be stress-free. My younger sister who is ten years younger than me already has wrinkles around the eyes and mouth because she has a stressful job. My other younger sister who is three years younger than me already has lots of gray hair and is even losing hair because of her stressful job. Unlike them, I don't work for a boss. I work at home online and stress-free. A stressful environment is the main cause for wrinkles. Avoid being under such stressful situations and you can avoid having wrinkles too early in your life.

i agree! when my mom started having wrinkles, she became very conscious of how she looks. she is using an anti-wrinkle cream (NeuCell) now to somehow conceal those lines. but she also learned to keep things calm and relaxed. i also told her to not engage in activities that might cause her stress or weariness. stress can really do a lot on our skin.


hads off to the great advice
