In this article, we've focused on seven often overlooked yet essential contributors to dry skin and what you can do to avoid them. And to finish, we've highlighted some extra steps you can take to alleviate and treat dry skin.

Both men and women are under constant pressure to look their best in this era of selfies and social media, but it seems like women fall prey to the demands of perfection most often. Many women believe they would be perfect if only they didn’t have that pesky cellulite.

Tanning the body may give a beautiful warm glow to the skin, but things aren’t always what they appear. 

How To Have Beautiful, Glowing Skin In Your 40s And 50s

It’s an exciting time for anti-aging in the fashion and beauty sectors 

A recent finding from Newcastle University shows the activity of one enzyme found in the mitochondria (or ‘battery’) of skin cells significantly declines as we age, causing fine lines, wrinkles, and loss of firmness in the skin. 

The researchers note that their findings mean “we now have a specific biomarker, or a target, for developing and screening anti-aging treatments and cosmetic creams that may counter this decline in bio-energy.” 

The health and beauty industries may still be a few years away from targeting specific areas of the powerhouse of cells that halt the signs of aging. But there is plenty we can do right now for youthful skin that glows and is firm and line-free. 

If a beautiful skin in your 40s and 50s is your aim, then prepare to take a multifaceted approach to health and beauty – one that begins within.

We are guilty. We love our clothes snug and demand that our bandage dresses fit like a second skin. With that comes the challenges of keeping fit, shapely, and trim.

How do you stay fit and trim without giving up your favorites? Does keeping a flat and trim tummy require you to hit the gym at every waking moment? In our humble opinion - no, absolutely not (although we think some exercise is necessary).

Getting a natural tummy tuck is not about trying to look like a model or cutting back on all your favorite snacks. Instead, we take a holistic approach such as drinking more water, reducing stress, targeted exercising, and eating a balanced diet.
