I only pay attention to my skin when my skin became easily dehydrated in twenty-seven. Before that, all I have for my face care is a cleanser and a moisturizer from drugstore.
Probably I don’t have major skin problem before, until I noticed my pores became prominent and spread slowly from inner cheek toward the chin. Only 2 years later I found out those enlarged pores were the result of losing collagen that sustains the skin firmness as we aged.
What I did to my enlarged pores? Shamefully, I used foundation to cover them because I quite reluctant to pay a big sum of money to any beauty salon until now. Skin condition became worse when fine lines appeared under eyes and on cheeks.
Prevent is always better than cure. I was paying the high cost for curing now. I believe the signs of aging cannot be reverse but definitely something I can do to improve and minimize them. I had have read an article ad from Japan IPSA cosmetic that we suppose to have our first wrinkle in 70 years old! How many of us were pre-mature aging due to environment pollution, UV damage and unhealthy lifestyle? Count me in.
I am surely take care my skin for preventive intention now.
Age gracefully definitely makes me feel good.
