I’d like to think it’s because I have smiled and laughed so much over the years that my skin is a bit wrinkly. Hey ho I enjoyed those times but now they are etched on my face to remind me! Nothing can get rid of them unless I want to head to a needle or scalpel (no thank you!) and so many products claim miracle cures – none of which I really believe.
What I do believe is that we should treat our body’s biggest organ, our skin, with utter respect and use only natural skincare where we can. I stumbled on stem cell active botox which comes from the hibiscus flower. Its properties help to boost cell production which when incorporated into face cream, make the skin firmer while increasing its elasticity. The result is to make those miserable fine lines and wrinkles a little less obvious – naturally. What’s not to like?

After a bit of digging I discovered a wonderful moisturiser made by Naked Creams www.nakedcreams.com (founded by a young looking 50 year woman which spoke volumes to me). Her cream is blended with plant stem cells and I understand works particularly well for skin showing signs of ageing and dehydration. I gave it a go, I tried both the day and night creams and admittedly they had a task and half to do, but my skin did feel softer from the off and that in itself gave me oodles more confidence. I did particularly like the fact Naked Creams are as the name implies, completely natural and free from parabens, sulphates and horrible chemicals, and of course not tested on animals. And they come in glass jars and not earth-damaging plastic.
Did you spot the key word above? Dehydration. No matter what we put on our skin, we need to make sure we drink a lot of water. I also read that a glass of water before bed and first thing in the morning will help prevent against stroke. So, now you have two reasons to drink more water.
