For most people, the signs of ageing skin are one of the most important wake-up calls that our body is getting older. The immediate response is one of the cosmetic 'cures' either a cream, lotion, or at worse some surgical adjustment.
All too often, we overlook the fact that wrinkles, sags and spots, normally start from within - connected to the issue of free radicals and then simply burst forth on the surface of the skin by way of spots, dark rings, 'laughter lines' - if you want to fool yourself -and other blemishes which are seen as skin problems.
Cosmetic companies make billions out of our preoccupation with the condition of the skin, and we usually fail to take the real action that is required to ensure a young, supple, soft, moist skin. More often than not, skin care is based upon treating the symptom of ageing, instead of treating and caring for the basic cause.
Beauty is often seen as simply being skin-deep. Certainly our skin is the first thing that people notice about us. Together with facial qualities, it determines how we are perceived by others; it is the first thing we see each morning in the mirror; often it is the first sign that all is not well, deeper in the body.
Skin ageing is a natural process alas, but as with all things ageing, much can be done to either push back the ageing process and sometimes even to reverse the damage that has started. Feed your blood - feed your skin
