A Message From Your Mother

You asked me what you should do about the 'wrinkle' you found. The ONE wrinkle you found when you screw your face up in a tight little ball. Let me get the magnifying glass just to authenticate it's existence....ah yes....I sort of see it there.

First, I suggest you get up close and personal with that little wrinkle and start to appreciate it for what it is. Because there is, over time, going to be way more coming your way. So it's best to be welcoming and friendly now.....just so you will better accept the wrinkle influx when it finally hits.

Now that I'm not young enough to know everything (those over 35 will get that), I will give you my hot tips on how to alleviate the arrival of nature's little creases for as long as you can.

1. Protect your skin from the sun and use a sunscreen whenever your outdoors - winter and summer.
2. Smile - make your wrinkles happy ones.
3. Keep your skin in tip top condition - well exfoliated, cleansed and hydrated.
4. Skin food - eat a diet rich in good fats and antioxidants.
5. Drink up - keep your skin hydrated from the inside.

Come back in fifteen years when you have lived a bit more and ask me about the other non surgical options that involve needles and magic.

Until then, chill, keep smiling and stay away from those magnified mirrors - they were invented by makeup houses to make us feel insecure......and them much richer.
