A video of a Photoshopped 100-year-old woman went viral after this extreme “virtual makeover” illustrated the dramatic results of what if the woman were 70 years younger and wrinkle-free. The video, first posted in 2003 after a “Photoshop Surgeon” reverse-aged the woman using digital technology, trended again recently with over 6.5 million views and counting .
What will your face look like 20, 30, 40 years from now? Sun damage from early in life can show up years later as wrinkles, brown spots, unevenness and sagging skin. Stress, too, often manifests in the form of expression lines around your eyes and between the brows. Even heredity can play a role.
While no product can eliminate wrinkles as dramatically as the Photoshop experiment, you can take steps today to help stave off the signs of aging tomorrow.
1. Stress Less. By making small, incremental lifestyle changes, you can help mitigate your stress levels. Practice yoga 15 minutes a day. Take a walk after lunch. Get monthly massages. And when stressful instances occur, remember to b-r-e-a-t-h-e.
2. Wear Sunscreen Daily. UV exposure from the sun is responsible for 80% of your skin’s signs of aging. Fortunately, by applying a sunscreen like REDEFINE Triple Defense Treatment every day, you can help protect your skin against these harmful aging effects that often appear later in life.
3. Fill Expression Lines. Expression lines form over time as we smile, squint, frown or furrow our brows. ACUTE CARE™ Skincare for Expression Lines can help by filling expression lines with proprietary Liquid Cone Technology that melts line-defying peptides and hyaluronic acid directly into the wrinkle for smoother-looking skin.
You might not be able to wipe 20, 30 or 40 years worth of aging from your face with a click of a keyboard, but you can help create a more youthful-looking future with some lifestyle changes and a few choice skincare products.
