A natural aging face is a beautiful thing, but there are changes that occur with age that we would like to slow down. Age effects every part of the body. Along with wisdom, experience, and accomplishments that come with getting older, there are changes that occur in our outward appearance. Changes in our faces are the most at the forefront.
When we’re young, the fat in the face is evenly distributed, with some pockets here and there that plump up the forehead, temples, cheeks and areas around the eyes and mouth. With the aging process, that fat loses volume, clumps up, and shifts downward, so the features which were formerly round may sink, and skin that was beautiful, smooth and tight gets loose and sags.
And, of course, there are wrinkles. They’re the result of facial muscles continually pulling on, and eventually creasing, the skin. Finer wrinkles are due to sun damage and natural degeneration of elements of the skin that keep it thick and supple.
One day, not so long ago I looked in the mirror and saw a wrinkled old woman gazing back at me. I was shocked to say the least. I have always been complemented on my looks and it seemed suddenly, almost overnight, my youthful appearance had disappeared. But the more I thought about it, it hadn’t happened overnight, it had been a gradual process and I just hadn’t noticed. I came to the realisation that since I’d been working from home, I had not even been looking at myself in the mirror, let alone loving on my skin.
I made a promise to myself right there and then that I would repair the neglect I had inflicted on my skin. I deserved to look my best and I wanted to get started right away.
Even if you have great genes and look much younger that you are, age-related changes in our facial appearance are unavoidable. Those changes reflect our joys and challenges in life. One way is to simply celebrate our age and appearance for what they are. However, not everyone is comfortable with that, and some like to postpone embracing those changes.
Once we hit our late 40s, and the menopause starts rearing its ugly head, we become anxious with how our skin is starting to deteriorate and try whatever hits the market. But the one thing we haven't done in the past, or at least I didn't, was indulge my skin with sheet face masks. I never really enjoyed using the traditional face masks, or packs as they used to call them. They often set like clay and were very messy. But since I found sheet face masks I put one on every night. Its my " time". I take myself up to my bedroom close the door and lock the world out just for 30 short minutes - its perfect. And you can try amazingly effective beauty face masks in the comfort of your own home with our premium face sheets. I am so happy I can fight skin aging with our masks and make my skin look younger Our masks are full of nutrients., add a wonderful glow to your face and improve the skin texture.
Sheet masks were discovered by Persian women in 1857. They wrapped their face with the slices to beef to avoid the sign of aging like fine lines and wrinkles and later on ready-made face masks cut from cloth and filled with moisturizers, vitamins and oils a forerunner of today’s sheet mask.
Luckily we don't have to put slices of beef on our face any more, we have face sheets made with beautiful silky essence, which stimulates collagen and elastin production, and reduces signs of ageing. As I have found to my benefit, silky sheet masks tackles the ageing process like nothing I have every tried before. Don't get me wrong they haven't performed miracles, and nor would I expect that, but when I look in the mirror I am happy at what I see and that is all I can ask.
