    LOL Just clicked the moisturizer link.

    But yeah, good lifestyle tips.

    When I saw you TG in LA, you didn't look old or 'older' from the first time we met near the airport.

    Wear lots of SPF, drink lots of water, don't smoke, don't drink to excess, get enough sleep, eat healthy. Get a satin/silk pillowcase. Mhmm's 'extreme' green diet will work but easy enough to take out salt, sugar, caffeine, and 'bad fats' like butter, dairy in general, white starches...right? RIIIGHT?

    Also, wear age appropriate but stylish clothing and similar hairstyle, natural make up only.
    yes, that's me. i'm older than jock.
    am in my early 30s.

    don't have to completely cut out the
    delicious deep fried foods, but just
    make sure it's balanced out. just be
    aware of when you eat certain foods.
    and counter it with something healthy.

    i suggested green smoothies based on
    that it's extremely nutrient densed, and
    your body absorbs it up well, plus it helps
    you shit like megamega battle-shit. taking
    out toxins and debloating.

    well i converted because it completely
    streamlined my routine. it replaced all
    my other products. i just use this mainly.
    the only other product i use is the express
    flower gel for when i do long haul flights.
    no night cream. no eye cream. no spot
    corrector. no toner. no special facewash.
    just one moisturizer and i'm good.

    i used to use creme de la mer and la prarie's
    skin caviar
    . it was ehhh. i didn't find it restorative
    actually. when i was younger i used clarins which
    is a decent entry level brand, but it just involved
    too many products and the method to activate
    it's ingredients (warming in the palms of your hand)
    and clarins' recommedded way to apply the cream
    (jaw, cheeks, apples, forehead) was just too... many steps.

    i like simple simple.

    the other product i like is lancome's hydra zen.
    (though i haven't used this new formula as pictured
    below) the only trouble with is, it doesn't last
    all day, and i still needed to use other products.



    i primarily look for a "skin-destresser" moisturizer.

    i used to be a very, very heavy smoker.
    pack a day for over 10 years. and lots
    of partying and all the goodies that came
    along with that. so a very strikingly different
    lifestyle than now. plus lots of floating down
    the mekong on an innertube with languid
    clouds of opium surrounding me.

    i like this moisturizer because it's the only
    thing i've found to be both restorative and
    preventive. plus, as i mentioned above, it
    keeps skin care very, very simple. plus my
    skin now is softer than a baby's ass.

    i have very few lines around eyes and mouth,
    and i'm laughing and talking all the time.

    it's worth dropping by the counter to try some
    of their samples, however, i don't think they
    give out all day all year samples unless you
    make x amount of purchases.

    or go to the counter with a clean face and put
    it on your cheek. feel it instantly. boing.

    i'm really vain too like mmhmm - this is what i do.

    slap i use
    i use gentle BHAs and AHAs - acids are your friend. google to see why. i went to see a proper non-quack dermatologist/vain doctor when i was mid 20s seeking preservation tips. i also use a vitamin c serum by kiehl's - there's evidence that vitamin c applied topically actually does good things for your skin. makes my skin crazy smooth and soft. i use sk-II eye gel (only one that doesn't sting and it's very moisturising) and their spooky masks sometimes. i would probably rub turds on my face if cate blanchett recommended it.

    more importantly than that junk - i've been using a high SPF sunscreen everyday since i was around 12. make sure you use one that blocks UV and UVB rays. put it on your face/hands/neck/decolletage EVERYDAY even if it's cloudy. no tanning. physical sunscreens (not chemical) are good. i use one called invisible zinc because elle macpherson told me too and she's hot. not sure if you can buy it outside australia?

    before putting anything on your skin check out product reviews on makeupalley.com and try to find out more about the active ingredients.

    diet etc
    don't drink too much booze, no cigarettes, no recreational drugging. drink lots of water and herbal teas. get your protein and good fats (avocado, salmon etc). limit your white stuff (sugar/pasta/flour etc), have hot safe sex. take vitamins, fish oil and zinc, and laugh lots. life is funny.

    Facial exercises help. Also, yes, treating your body right. Exercise. No heavy drinking or smoking.

    I have very fair skin, and get very sick if I get burned (even a little bit) so I stay out of the sun. That's a big deal in the long run. I use a vitamin C serum and extra virgin olive oil - they improve texture and resiliency.

    I'm vegan (not for everyone's blood types - some people need meat protein) and take vitamins so there's a lot less drag on my systems.

    Then again, I'm forced to look after myself like a glass menagerie because I have a pain disorder. I'm sure I would be falling face first into a pizza/meringue pie/tub of awesome sauce if I could.

    TG, you don't look old, at least according to the pics I've seen. Don't even know how old you are.

    As far as looking young for a long time, most of it is genetics. Mid-thirties here and prefer natural products, hydrating, eating healthy and exercising. Beyond that, let the cards fall where they may.

    you could do what the vain rich people do and get botox and look like a manquin and a face lift. personally i think you shouldn't beauty isn't meant to last forever that's why flowers die so quickly

    I'm going to start a skin care line for my next business. Good profit margins.

    I follow the regime in this book: Essential Oils and facial exercises.

    You need to tinker a bit with what oils feel best to you.

    And rose water is nice.

    Lots of good suggestions already in thread, so won't repeat them.

    Honestly, things change whether you want them to or not, and when you consider that movie stars can't prevent the aging process, you've got to figure "regular folks" won't be able to either. The best is to try to age gracefully and take good care of your body.

    But I admit, I sometimes look in the mirror and although I think I am doing well for 44, I can see the changes and can feel a tad down. Then I smack myself and realize any day I am on this side of the grass, I am doing ok.

    40 is like some magic number for physiological aging becoming more noticeable. I even have to squint at the small print now. :/

    Whatever you do, just don't end up like Marijke Helweger.

    It's not the solution and the world can't handle two of them.
