Ways to a Younger You??? And, Hey, Panty Hose are Back???

This was from Self on line.  I haven't tried any of these products so, just sharing with my lady friends.

 

Diminish Dimples

The number of fat cells you have is determined by your DNA, but your diet and lifestyle can make them grow. (Oh, no!) When they plump up, they can press against skin's top layers, creating that tell-tale rippling effect. There are a slew of creams that might help, but most dermatologists still say the holy grail ingredient is caffeine, which draws water from cells, temporarily giving skin a tighter look.

Glow Head to Toe

The skin on your body ages the same way the skin on your face does: Cell turnover slows and collagen breaks down, causing scaliness and sagging, says Elizabeth Tanzi, M.D., codirector of the Washington Institute of Dermatologic Laser Surgery in Washington, D.C. Keep skin supple with a body cream that contains exfoliating acids to remove dry layers. And look on the label for H²O-attracting hyaluronic acid and collagen-building peptides to soften and firm.

Your neck gets major sun—and lots of us don't use sunscreen there. Lighten sun spots by applying a hydroquinone cream at night and a sunscreen every A.M.
Hide cellulite with St. Tropez Self Tan Bronzing Mousse, $40.
Increase circulation and make cellulite less noticeable by buffing dry skin with Elemis Body Brush, $44.

Erase Fine Lines

There aren't many sebaceous glands in the neck, so skin can get extra dry, saggy and creased. To fight wrinkles, apply an antiaging face cream or a neck-specific treatment (the latter will typically be richer in texture) packed with mega moisturizers (for example, hyaluronic acid and ceramides) found in abundance in healthy, young skin.
Three-in-one La Prairie Advanced Marine Biology Revitalizing Emulsion for face, eyes and neck, $135, uses marine algae to firm where you need it.

Sleep deprivation doesn't only wreck your mood; it can also hamper the production and quality of collagen, a building block of healthy skin, Medical Hypotheses reports. If you get six to eight hours of sleep a night, over time you'll look as refreshed as you feel.
Anti-inflammatories, like horse chestnut and witch hazel extract, in Votre Vu C'est La Vie Slimming Gelée, $69, smooth skin


Hey, Panty Hose are back?
Shall we thank Kate Middleton?  She was seen on her tour of Canada and the US, wearing panty hose.  I see that Wolford Naked 8's and Satin Touch 20's are selling like wildfire.  Hmm....well, her legs certainly looked great.  However, I thought panty hose were a thing of the past.  Darn it!  I am gonna have to get me some!
