Busy women with not a second of extra time left in their busy schedules take note: this does not mean you should neglect your face and body. When time is of essence, it is even more important to do your homework and curate the beauty fixes that you want to go for. Because we at Skin Mag are mothers too, we have shortlisted a list of beauty ‘must-dos’ that really deliver the results without the downtime and need for regular repeats.

I have good reasons not to like my body very much, in particular, my stubborn tummy is bent on making the world know that it continues to live, since I was 18. Problem is, I don’t have as much a problem with my weight, because I really don’t consider myself as fat. So you see why a tummy bulge can be an issue. Having tried dieting (which just makes me lose weight overall but doesn’t do much to change my shape), been to the gym, tried one of those vibration slimming belts, I contemplated liposuction.

In fact, women and men around the world are not giving skin agers a chance and many are embarking on anti-aging treatments long before the skin succumbs to gravity and to chance. Anti-aging treatments now extend to the neck, the décolleté, the hands and even the back! So as it turns out, as it gets harder to tell one’s age, the tougher it gets to hide it, as the world scrutinizes for signs of age on the body. The latest anxiety is in the leg joints.

Need I explain further why the world was devastated that a normal (but famous) human being was not allowed to look aged, even in the knees? Perhaps there isn’t a need to. This was simply the cue Continue Reading

I beg your pardon, when I said “most people”, I meant 99.9 percent of all people, healthy and fit, or otherwise.
