My daughter is looking at me with a quizzical expression. For a minute now I’ve been lifting the sides of my jaw while I look at the car mirror. There’s a bit of a droop but what to do? It does not help that the car just passed by a giant billboard of a pretty actress promoting a hundred thousand peso treatment by a skin clinic. A deep resolve to look for a beauty fix is foremost in my mind as we reach our home.
Beauty Without Breaking the Bank
Recently I tried Elizabeth Arden’s Ceramide Capsules Daily Youth Restoring Serum (Php 4850). Packaged beautifully in a gold circular tin can are 60 tiny capsules that promise to take years off the look of your skin. Don’t be fooled by the miniscule golden plastic orbs because you’ll be surprised how much it contains once you break the tip. The serum was enough to cover my entire face plus my front neck area. I liked that it was not sticky, light even – and was absorbed quickly.
In about five days, my jawline was noticeably lifted and my skin became more supple and brighter, too. The difference is due to the concentrated dose of advance ceramide technology. What is ceramide? Think of our skin as a brick wall. After years of exposure, the mortar that holds the brick together starts to break down. The mortar can be likened to ceramides. As you age, your body produces less and less ceramides. In your 30’s the effect of cermaide decrease is noticeable and in your 40’s the aging signs are even more dramatic. These undeniable signs include loss of firmness, appearance of wrinkles, dryness and uneven skin tone.
It only takes five minutes of your day for you to experience an improved skin lipid/moisture barrier. Just cleanse your face, pat dry and apply the ceramide capsule before you head out. Remember, no matter how late you come home, it’s important to take your make up off. No excuses. Elizabeth Arden has a Repleneshing Cleansing Oil that cleans while nourishing your skin with Omega 3,6, 9 and Vitamin E. Just gently massage a few drops over your face to remove make-up. Add a small amount of warm water and rinse.
The difference is due to the concentrated dose of advance ceramide technology.
If you’re travelling, there’s the eight Hour Cream Pack which contains a Facial Cream (love that it’s non-greasy!). Moisturizing Hand Treatment (Ladies, the neck and the hands show ageing so better take of these areas,too!) and a Lip Protectant Stick (Keep those puckers kissable!).
YOU are Important
Decide that you are worth investing on! While people say that age is just a number, it could well be that you are presenting yourself as a higher number than your actual age. Women must make it our business to age beautifully, inside and out.
The best part? I did not spend hundreds of thousands for my beauty solution. Now I can smile when I pass by that billboard again!
