Anti-aging and the perfect lady
I used to read science fiction books set in the future, in which we earthlings made peace treaties with aliens and had their babies. These books were filled with words like “hyperspace,” “droid,” and “star cruisers”. Most fascinating of the imagined futuristic technology were “rejuvenation treatments.” The humans of the future could pay a relatively medium to high fee and get a rejuvenation treatment which would pump vitamins and hormones into their bodies and perhaps replace worn-out organs. These treatments would make them young again. Some of the characters were centuries old, yet looked and functioned as if they were in their 20s. I’d like to add that Yoda was 900 and could kick butt without the treatments. Thank God that Lucas never made rejuvenation treatments part of the Star Wars universe.
This idea of age-reversal or anti-aging is fascinating to a lot of people today. Both men and women. No surprise why. Growing old isn’t fun. We can’t do all the things we once were able to do, like go to fancy parties, drink beer, and exercise. Things start to sag and fall apart. Bones turn brittle. Our sex drive slows down. And worse, there are the outward signs of aging. Skin gets wrinkly. Face starts to sag. Hair turns grey. Even at the young age of 20 we’re starting to worry. Those frequent visits to the tanning bed when you were 18 aren’t going to help your skin when you turn 50. Your partying days when you were in college won’t help either. For me, there’s a quick fix: Viagra. But what about us women?
That’s why the experts and the cosmetic companies are here to help! Dr. Oz of Oprah has tips on how you can cut down on those harmful habits (if you haven’t done so already) for a longer, more fruitful life. Cosmopolitan wants to tell you how you can stay energetic and sexy – forever. But if you don’t want to (or can’t) cut down your habit of 3 bottles of beer before bedtime, there are special skin care products for you.
In recent years, companies such as Garnier, L’oreal, Revlon, and Avon have turned out slews of products with fancy sounding names. Their sole purpose is to “renew” and “revitalize” and “rejuvenate” our aging skin by injesting it with “all-natural herbs and organic ingredients” or “vitamin 3 complex and radion hypotractive.” And of course, don’t forget the Sirtuin FX1 technology. THese creams and serums “erase wrinkles instantly” for a “younger, more vibrant you.” They reverse the aging process with “results you can see immediately.”
These advertisements are backed up with scientific studies and before-after simulations that reflect the dramatic results. Beautiful, young models with flawless skin show you what you will look like after using the “creme.”
If it’s not models, it’s celebrities. One of the most popular faces in the anti-aging scene is Sarah Jessica Parker. It’s not common to turn on the TV or open a magazine and see her face gracing an ad for wrinkle-minimizing. If you click on the link, you’ll see promotions of various Garnier products (and they’re fun to watch!) and even see Sarah Jessica Parker endorsing them.
If it’s not celebrities, it’s fresh herbs.
This product apparently corrects your age. If you look older than you actually are after 3 years of nightly bottles of beer, this serum corrects that.
When it’s not the ads, it’s the magazine articles themselves. Prevention talks to dermatologists and conducts studies to find out the best anti-aging skin creams. Oprah is also another notable contributer to the cause. In her magazine and website, she regularly endorses the best anti-aging makeup for the average woman.
Here’s an interesting and innovative product I saw. This proves how advanced we’ve come when it comes to anti-aging.
Using a scientific process called “Iontophoresis,” the patented micro-charged eye patch activates on contact with the skin to gently push Retinol 4x(TM) activating serum deep into the skin to dramatically reduce the appearance of wrinkles in only 20 minutes. In order to maintain results between WrinkleFree Eyes patch treatments, the two-week starter kit includes the daily 24 Hour Face Lift(TM) dermal filler which continually releases hyaluronic acid to naturally fill in gaps and decrease the look of wrinkles and enhance smoothness and elasticity as well as WrinkleFree Eyes’ patented nightly Retinol 4x intensive cream which is time-released so it is four times stronger, yet significantly less irritating than leading retinol treatments.
Even though I’m not old, I can look to the future without the fear that I’ll grow old and wrinkly. With such innovative technology coming out faster than I can say, “Anti-aging skin serum,” I and every woman who fears the ravages of aging can be assured that when I do grow “old,” aging will be a thing of the past.
