HydraSkin Sciences and the Battle of the Ages
I saw a meme once that read “Getting old isn’t for wimps”! I busted out laughing because it is such a true statement. Aging is tough. Aging gracefully – yeah that is the battle of the ages!
As a women of a certain (or more) age, I find that my mind writes checks my body is not willing to make good on. Oh, and let me ask you this? Where did the alligator skin with all the wrinkles come from? I mean for real; it wasn’t there the last time I checked.
Wrinkles, according to Wikipedia are “a fold, ridge or crease in the skin”.
Skin wrinkles typically appear as a result of aging processes, habitual sleeping positions, loss of body mass, or temporarily, as the result of prolonged immersion in water.
Age wrinkling in the skin is promoted by habitual facial expressions, aging, sun damage, smoking, poor hydration, and various other factors.
Yikes! This checklist of sorts actually makes me look at my wrinkles in a different light. As I look through the list of possible reasons a couple jump out at me.
Habitual Facial Expressions – oh yeah guilty – raise my hand on this on! My family and friends tell me that I have a very animated face and wear my feelings right on my face. No doubts what my position is on a subject by looking at my expressions.
Aging – enough said; I know that I am getting aged (that will now be my new 4 letter word for things I don’t like – AGED).
Sun Damage – guilty here too. Well maybe reformed addict would be more truthful. When I was younger I never worried about being outside in the sun. Got burned all the time but lathering up with sun screen just wasn’t something I was ever taught about as a child.
Smoking – I am here to tell you that smoking is NOT one of the reasons I have wrinkles. Don’t smoke, never smoked (okay I did try it but not the choking to death spasms that I immediately went into).
Poor Hydration – guilty here too. Water is not one of my favorite beverages. Love it when used in coffee, tea or some other fruity concoction but not a fan of plain h20 in a glass.
Various Other Factors – I would imagine issues like drastic weight fluctuations, weather and other applied chemicals would all fall under this subheading and I would be guilty on all counts.
Okay, okay; maybe my wrinkles are partly my fault. But that doesn’t mean I have to love them or accept them without a battle.
While I probably will never stop being animated, nor can I stop the advancement of the years; I can limit my sun exposure, learn to
enjoy tolerate a large glass of water, increase my physical activity, and limit exposure to harsh chemicals.
So while I am battling the creation of new wrinkles with changes in habits, I also wanted to take a look at other ways to help minimize or reduce my existing wrinkles.
I have been using a product called “Allegro Anti-aging Cream” made by HydraSkin Sciences. It is an anti-aging cream that claims to reduce or remove by filling out wrinkles while hydrating your skin. Sounded like just what I needed. Right?
Let me tell you a little about the product:
According to the packaging:
This cream contains Jojoba Oil, Apricot Kernel Oil, and Red Tea Extract along with other ingredients that work together synergistically. This combination provides the skin repairing and smoothing nutrients you need to improve the condition of your skin.
Allegro Anti-aging Cream is not just another moisturizer. As your skin absorbs it, those trouble spots like your forehead, crow’s feet around your eyes, and even your sagging neck-line begin to fill out.
Another nice component is that Allegro protects your skin from harmful UV rays.
My personal experience with Allegro:
Although this product is recommended and probably most used on faces, I don’t like to test products on my face. So, I have been applying the product according to package directions, sans face, for a couple of weeks.
Now, while I can’t run around showing off my hands claiming that look like they did when I was eighteen, oh wait..that was never a claim of the product was it; I will say that when consistently applied it works. My skin is softer and not as wrinkled in my opinion.
I applied the cream twice a day to one hand. As you can see, the skin on that hand does look nicer and not as wrinkled. I am happy with the results from my experience. I did not have any adverse reactions to the cream. It smells nice, absorbs completely without leaving that greasy feeling like a lot of products, and I can see a difference in my skin quality. If this was applied on my face, it would not slow down my morning routine or cause issues with my foundation.
Will I continue using this? Oh yeah, my only question is if I can buy it by the gallon! I want to use this all over my poor, wrinkly body!
