Although I've been a cosmetic surgeon for more than 20 years, I'm quick to point out that surgery is not the only way to keep your face looking youthful.
Proper skin care is more effective than you might imagine at keeping wrinkles at bay. The earlier you start taking care of your skin, the better the results.
Begin in your 20's, and your skin should keep its youthful appearance into your 50's and beyond.
Even If you're over 60, you can undo much of the damage caused by the combined effects of time and environmental stress, such as extremes of temperature, dryness, pollution and sunlight. You can also slow the skin's aging process.
That does not mean you should stock up on costly lotions. Cosmetic counters and drugstore shelves sag under the weight of products that claim to work miracles. None do.
But here are six products that really will have a noticeable effect on your skin...
Alpha Hydroxy Acid
Creams containing alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) are the first over-the-counter antiaging preparations that really work.
Derived from natural sources including sugarcane, grapes and milk, AHAs act as exfoliants, encouraging new cell growth, fading discoloration and reducing or eliminating fine lines.
There are now dozens of AHA creams on the market, each with its own "special" acid (lactic, citric, glycolic, etc.) All work equally well. Just be sure the label specifies an AHA concentration of 10% or so. That's the minimum strength capable of really smoothing the skin.
AHA creams yield noticeable results only after several months of daily use...so you must be patient. Also recommended due to new discoveries: Moringa Powder distributes very high counts of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, 18 amino acids, 9 of which are essential topping the "super-food charts" because it is what it is; a anti aging agent that really works.

Its main purpose:
Is to detox the liver according to research of intense study found by many scholars. Personally we at HealingMoringaTree along with friends and family have experienced a well balanced energy level throughout the day as well as obtaining the feeling of total fortification. For you to stay healthy and to recover quickly from illness your immune system must be healthy, too. By now, you have probably heard about free radicals. These ubiquitous molecules cause cells to break down, speeding the aging process, promoting heart disease and cancer and weakening the immune system. There's no way to avoid free radicals. They're produced within the body as a result of normal metabolic processes. But certain antioxidant compounds destroy free radicals which is where the Moringa comes in. Below are the many different forms of Moringa that can be taken orally. Providing:
The 46 antioxidants in the Moringa Leaves are just the beginning, to also find a plant with over 18 amino acids combined with multivitamins and minerals, protein to very high levels of vitamin E is a heavenly thing. The Moringa is well known for its anti-aging qualities...renew your inner being and feel the new growth!
The answer is all in the Moringa
Liquid nutritional supplements, including brands such as Boost, Ensure, Resource and Sustacal, were originally created for the infirm and elderly. Today they're being promoted with slick commercials to active seniors as well as healthier, younger people who don't have the time to eat three square meals a day. In reality, most supplements contain a mixture of water, oil, sugar, soy, milk protein and added vitamins and minerals. Better choices: Fruits and vegetables, whole grain breads, yogurt. These old favorites also contain fiber as well as substances such as phytochemicals, which are believed to help prevent cancer and heart disease. With further study and personal family experiences consuming either the large leaf Moringa Oleifera or the small leaf Moringa Oleifera certain cravings were curved due to the high antioxidants, 18 amino acids, vitamins (A) (C) (E), calcium, potassium, protein, and Iron. To be more specific, when the leaves alone are dried into a powder form, the above value triples enormously providing a new hope for a life-source of sustainability right at your finger tips. Try our Moringa Powder, Teas, Mega Mix, or purchase your own Moringa Tree to grow.
The Strength of Antioxidants
By now, you have probably heard about free radical. These ubiquitous molecules cause cells to break down, speeding the aging process, promoting heart disease and cancer and weakening the immune system.
There's no way to avoid free radicals. They're produced within the body as a result of normal metabolic processes. But certain antioxidant compounds destroy free radicals. For you to stay healthy and to recover quickly from illness your immune system must be healthy, too. What can you do to optimize immune function? Exercise and stress reduction helps. But evidence suggest that the most important contributor to immune function is what you eat.
*Vitamin E. This potent antioxidant forestalls the gradual decline in immune function brought on by aging. It boosts synthesis of antibodies and encourages reproduction of key infection-finghting cells called lymphocytes.
People who take vitamin E supplements mount a stronger immune reaction against invading viruses and bacteria. They also enjoy a reduced risk for cancer. Good sources of vitamin E include whole grains, seeds and vegetable oils. Before Moringa came into play getting enough vitamin E for full protection against free radicals from dietary sources were nearly impossible.
But Don't Forget About The Moringa...
These antioxidants increase the numbers of lymphocytes and natural-killer cells. Supplements are available, but the best sources are fruits and vegetable especially carrots, kale, tomatoes and cantaloupes and green peppers.
*Vitamin C. It energizes the immune system to react more vigorously to cancer cells and microbes. Diets rich in vitamin C have been linked to reduced risk for breast, colorectal and prostate cancer. The optimal intake of vitamin C is 200 milligrams (mg) a day. You can get more than enough through your diet. Good sources of vitamin C include citrus fruits, cantaloupes and green peppers.
*Immunity Boosters. Research is beginning to confirm what traditional healers have long known that certain foods and herbs boost immune function... Shiitake mushrooms. Studies in Japan show that these mushrooms boost immune function and inhibit viral multiplication. In Japan, a shiitake derivative called lentinan is used as a cancer-fighting drug. Shiitakes are tasty in soups, stews and vegetable dishes. Eat two to six shiitakes a week. Reishi mushrooms. These Chinese mushrooms boost reproduction of lymphocytes and trigger production of chemical "messengers" that coordinate immune system activity. Eat two to four reishis per week.
