Is there anything more disheartening than carefully applied makeup that refuses to stay put? The disappearing base is an unfortunate side effect for those of us who have, shall we say, dewy t–zones. And while there are certain benefits to having oily skin, the prospect of fewer wrinkles down the line is cold comfort when you're on your fifth blotting sheet of the day.
What happens with dehydrated skin? Lack of water in or around skin cells disrupts normal metabolism and tissue repair. This means that your dehydrated skin renewal & repair slows down, making your skin look older & less attractive. Dry skin itself is not the major cause of wrinkles & other signs of skin aging, but dry skin is more vulnerable to sun damage and environmental damage. Moisturizing helps to slow down any external skin damage, and allow skin care products to work better.
Our skin is constantly renewing itself by generating new skin cells (the average cell turnover rate is every 28 days) at the lower layer of the skin & the new cells rise to the surface of the skin. As the cells rise to the surface they eventually die & become filled with keratin. These keratinized skin cells protect our skin & as time passes the old protecting cells are replaced with new cells that rise from below.

Well, have you ever heard the expression by Tony Robbins, “If you do what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you’ve always gotten.”? This holds true for skin breakouts!

More than ever before women (and men) are learning how to take better care of themselves. From hitting the gym to making major lifestyle changes, it seems everyone wants to make sure they age gracefully and lead longer, more active lives. While there's nothing wrong with setting and accomplishing such goals, sometimes the desire to age gracefully can lead some individuals to go a bit overboard.

Below are my top 10 suggestions for how you can get super model skin without breaking the bank on fancy products or poisoning yourself by meddling with medications.
Something for which we all strive yet so few achieve and even fewer keep: a good skin care regimen. Oh yes, there are times we look in the mirror and think "Wow! Not a blemish!" or "Eek, not now!" The second, of course, always happens before a big event or special intimate dinner, whereas the first may come on any given day, giving us a reason to smile and a more confident bounce in our step.
