Stop Wrinkles Dead In Their Tracks

Stop Wrinkles Dead In Their Tracks Linda Franklin The Real Cougar WomanYou hear it all the time – slather on the sunscreen before you leave the house.  You might be delusional and think you are immune to the sun’s harmful rays, but skin cancer is very real.  And, using sunscreen is very beneficial for another reason near and dear to most women.  It keeps us looking younger.  Now it has been proven sunscreen stops wrinkles dead in their tracks.

A new Australian study has found the daily use of sunscreen significantly slows the aging of skin caused by the sun’s ultraviolet rays..

‘This has been one of those beauty tips you often hear quoted, but for the first time we can back it with science,’ Queensland Institute of Medical Research senior scientist and lead author of the trial Adele Green said.

The study found that adults who regularly applied broad spectrum sunscreen – which protects against both ultraviolet B and ultraviolet A rays – over a four-and-a-half year period had no detectable aging of the skin. 

They also had 24 per cent less skin aging than people who used sunscreen less frequently, according to study.

The randomized, controlled trial, published Monday in Annals of Internal Medicine, is the first study of its kind. Previously, the only scientific evidence for the beneficial effects of sun screen on wrinkling was in hairless mice.

The researchers randomly assigned 903 adults, ages 25-55, to use SPF15+ every day on their face, arms and hands with frequent reapplication or to use sunscreen at their discretion.

Silicone impressions, or molds, were taken from the backs of all participants’ hands at the start and end of the trial to grade the damage over the four-and-a-half years of the study.

The adults were all aged under 55 to ensure the changes noted were primarily due to photo-aging rather than chronological aging.

The researchers found those using daily sunscreen were 24 per cent less likely to show increased wrinkling over the period.

Regardless of sex, age, skin color, occupation, skin cancer history, weight and smoking, everyone benefited from daily sunscreen use. ‘And the study has shown that up to middle age, it’s not too late to make a difference,’ Green said.

Any sunscreen stronger than SPF15+ might have had only a marginal additional effect, according to Green as SPF15+ blocks about 94 percent of ultraviolet B rays, which are responsible for sunburn, while one with an SPF of 40 filters about 97.5 percent.

And don’t forget this important warning.  Apply sunscreen well and reapply often.

Previous research suggested that sunscreen could lull sun-worshipers into a false sense of safety, and see them staying out longer in the sun.

‘The sunscreen has to be applied thick enough and in all areas to be effective,’ Dr. Thomas Ruenger, a professor of dermatology at Boston University, told NBC News.

Ruenger recommends using a broad spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 20 or 30 and reapplying every two hours and after sweating or bathing.

Nanoblur – Look 10 Years Younger In 40 Seconds

by Linda Franklin

Look 10 Years Younger in 40 Seconds by Linda Franklin The Real Cougar Woman Three weeks ago I wrote a blog about Organic Rain Forest Honey. When you use this miracle honey as a facial mask every day it is supposed to erase wrinkles and firm your skin.  I have been using it for two weeks now and I do see a slight improvement. 

But now here’s the end-all-be-all in instant gratification.  How about looking 10 years younger in 40 seconds?

 For all the hype about make-up and skincare, what women actually want from a cosmetic product is very simple. We want it to make us look better than we normally look. Preferably right away, please! 

We’re not totally nuts.  We don’t expect to use a product and be magically transformed into Penelope Cruz or Jennifer Aniston.  We just want to cover up our wrinkles, minimize uneven pigmentation and generally wipe away a few years. In other words, instant air-brushing.

The latest wonder-working wrinkle-buster claims to do all that and more –  turning the clock back several years in 40 seconds flat.  

What is this miracle cure?  It’s called Nanoblur and the makers claim you will look younger in 40 seconds. 

We’ve all become so immune to the extravagant claims of beauty brands that our reaction to them tends to be short and pithy. But Nanoblur is confounding sceptics around the globe, topping the sales charts in 22 countries.

Indeed Labs, the maker of Nanoblur has taken the technology behind this idea to a new level of sophistication.

They say, “Our particle sizes are hundreds of times smaller than older formulas.  That means they can find their way into the smallest imperfections and use tricks of light to iron them out.”

These particles are on the nano-scale — at 700 nanometres — but too big to slip into the skin (only particles less than 400nm in diameter can do that), so they stay on the outside of the skin, to reflect light. 

Can it produce those effects in real life? Astonishingly, it can.  Women are reporting that when they smooth this  water-based product on their bare face it dries quickly and — hey presto! — their skin looked better.  It seemed smoother and more even in tone. The dark circles under their eyes become less obvious.

This seems like an ideal cheat for looking fresh-faced and more vibrant.  And, I can see why it has been a hit with men who would not contemplate wearing make-up.

Another great thing about Nanoblur is the price: Check it out on their website.  It sells for only $19.00.  I am ordering mine right now.
