What are the keys to looking younger?
Happiness: overall happiness in your life will make you look and feel younger. This is a decision we make. Yes life is stressfull, difficult and overwhelming but there is always something to be happy about. Let the little things that make you happy become important.
Rest: I don’t mean just sleep, I mean rest, time for yourself to rest your mind and soul. Take 5 minutes and watch a sunset, go for a run in the rain, savor a few moments of peace in the midst of a busy day. Sleep of course is very restorative, but sometimes we don’t always get what we need.
Moisturize: A good moisturizer goes a long way in making skin dewy and hydrated. Use one every day, spritz with spring water if you can.
Anti aging creams: These are important to diminish fine lines and wrinkles, to rejuvenate and lift skin. Try bella rosa skin care by Rachel Sullivan MD

Botox is indicated for those deeper lines, forehead ones that don’t respond to topical skin creams. So what are the drawbacks. Too much botox and you will look a bit lifeless, somewhat of a “masklike” face. You will need to be re-injected every 3 months, since it wears off. Maybe one of these days they will come up with a more permanent injection and muscle paralyzer, but that is a few years away.
My personal opinion is that the deeper lines can add character, that by all means attack the fine lines, age spots and lack of luminosity with a good skin cream, but I think that Botox is a bit invasive.

Candesca has now officially changed to LUC skin care.
Winter is here! What does that mean for our skin?
Skin easily becomes dehydrated with the dry heat and cold exposure. A good moisturizer is essential, and one containing dimethicone, a barrier agent is helpfull as well. Candesca anti wrinkle skin illuminating cream is great for this purpose. Other things to consider are using a humidifier at home and at night to keep skin moist. If you are hitting those slopes don’t forget the sunscreen!
