It seems these days, that everyone is searching for their own personal version of the fountain of youth. Some find it in living young — driving fast cars, jumping into every adventure, avoiding “typical” activities that social norms might dictate are for that age group. Others find youth in steering clear of careers and mortgages, instead letting the wind blow them where it so pleases. And there are those who seek youth in their appearance. With today’s technology and the cosmetic demands of the vast majority of the population, altering one’s physical appearance for the sake of youth or beauty is not a difficult thing to do.
From the best chemical peels to laser hair removal
Today’s society has a pretty steep standard of beauty that no one should feel that they have to adhere to or live up to. But if the cosmetic trends are something that you enjoy indulging in, then by all means indulge away. There is no shortage of cosmetic procedures, practices and products to choose from. Pesky little hairs around your chin or on your upper lip? Not a problem, just check out laser hair removal. About 87% of individuals who went through the process reported that they would do it again. Want a bit of brightening and lift to that beautiful face of yours? There is always botox or other versions of injections to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and this is popular particularly in the age range of 40 to 59 years old, but you could also go for a good chemical peel or microdermabrasion to exfoliate and brighten.
Lift that lovely face
Microdermabrasion is probably the most gentle of the facial procedures used to enhance appearance. It is basically an exfoliation process using a wand that is tipped with diamond or crystals. The process works to remove dead skin cells in a way that causes no discomfort and leaves the skin feeling fresh and looking young. What is a chemical peel and how is it different? Peels do perform some of the same functions as microdermabrasion, but may be a bit more uncomfortable and need some recovery time. Often, the entire process of a chemical peel may take multiple visits. But the results are typically longer lasting and more noticeable than a simple exfoliation, as they can reduce everything from wrinkles to scars from acne, dark spots and damage from exposure to the sun.
Whatever your reason for looking into the vast world of cosmetics and facials, remember two things: first, you have almost endless options from which to choose. And second, you don’t need any of it. They are certainly nice pick-me-ups or ways to treat yourself. But never feel like you have to live up to anyone else’s standard of beauty. Do it because you like it, not because you don’t like you without it.
