The Facelifts Of Tomorrow – Three Skin Treatments That Will Reduce Your Skin Age Drastically

The anti-aging treatments of tomorrow will relax wrinkles, smoothen out fine lines, firm the skin and even fill up lines on the face. Check out these 3 powerful doctor-approved treatments that will reduce your skin age drastically.   1. YOUTH SAVANT A youth miracle in a needle, they say.

Look for sunglasses that guard against at least 99% of UVA and UVB rays. Some people may find polarized glasses clearer but note that these do not come with full UV protection.   3. NOT ENOUGH QUALITY SLEEP It is not called beauty sleep for no reason. Lack of quality sleep deprives the body from repairing cellular damage. Continue Reading
