Did You Know That
Over 90% Of The Signs Of Aging
Are Caused By Free Radical Damage?

That's right. OVER 90%!

Your skin is your first defense against all the toxins and radiation you're bombarded with everyday. Since it takes the brunt of the damage, it's often the first thing to show the effects of aging- like those nasty wrinkles and age spots we try so hard to get rid of!

Here's why antioxidant skin care is necessary: most of the free radical damage is the result of radiation from the sun- even the small exposure you get from going to work or running errands adds up. Click here to see how antioxidants stop free radicals.

That of course makes wearing sunscreen EVERYDAY the ultimate in aging prevention. Unfortunately, the key word is prevention. By the time most of us have figured this out, a lot of the damage has already been done.

I know. I know. Where was this information a few months ago when summer was starting? Sorry- we've had such a horrible summer it didn't occur to me until last week when I was counselling a few people on what to do about their sunburns (we got a late summer this year). It's still important now, though, because even the small exposure from day to day adds up, and is actually responsible for the majority of the damage.

That's where antioxidant skin care comes in. If you can get enough antioxidants in your skin cells, free radical damage would be minimal. That would virtually stop the aging process in it's tracks. Imagine!

Beware the antioxidant claims made by most skin care companies as they try to profit from this "trend" though. It is a complex process to effectively put antioxidants into skin creams. Most companies don't bother with the expense. Since claims do not need to be substantiated, MOST (over 95%) of the products that claim to have antioxidants in them either do not at all, or they are quickly inactivated once the product has been opened.

And price is no indication of quality!!! Trust me!

Find out exactly how to evaluate antioxidant skin care products and not get ripped off by going to my antioxidants skin care products page.

And don't forget your antioxidant supplements! They're probably even more important for your skin than any cream you could put on. The antioxidant protection will be built right into the cell, where the free radical damage happens. Click here to find out more about internal antioxidants skin care products.

If you follow these recommendations, you can almost stop the visible aging process in its tracks and you'll be shocked how many comments you get about how well rested you look and how you "never age"! (That's my personal testimonial there ;-)

Because Laughter Really IS Good Medicine...

A doctor on his morning walk, noticed this lady sitting on her front step smoking a cigar, so he walked up to her and said, “I couldn’t help but notice how happy you look! What is your secret?”

“I smoke ten cigars a day,” she said. “Then, before I go to bed, I smoke a nice big joint. Apart from that, I drink a whole bottle of Jack Daniels every week, eat only junk food and don’t exercise at all.”

“That is absolutely amazing! How old are you?”

“Thirty-four,” she replied.
