This morning on the G 101-3 Morning Show
we told you how to look younger. It works too! For instance, the women in the pic above are the same age. Guess which one listened this morning! Anyway, check it out...
Did you know that the fastest growing group of people buying anti-aging products today is 22 year old women? 22! That’s according to dermatologist and psychiatrist Dr. Amy Wechsler, author of “The Mind-Beauty Connection
” . If you want to look younger, she has some suggestions. The 2 major reasons people look older than their years are too much stress and not enough sleep.
• Chronic stress results in the brain producing cortisol. And cortisol breaks down collagen in the skin and that causes wrinkles. The damage is reversible if you can reduce the stress in your life.
• One excellent study showed that people who don’t get enough sleep for 1 week – look 4 years older than they are - and that's just after 1 week. That too is reversible if you catch up on your sleep.
And Dr. Wechsler’s beauty secret is….safflower oil. It’s a cooking oil – but it is the same kind of oil our body produces – only as we age, we produce less. Her suggestion - after a shower, apply some safflower oil as a moisturizer - it absorbs, it's clear and odorless. And in a couple of days your skin will feel soft and look better.
