How To Fight Wrinkles Painlessly?


Written by : Guest Writer Brenda Lyttle

Wrinkles are the natural outcome of aging which is caused by the skin irregularities and loss of collagen, which is the result of over exposure to sun. To have wrinkles is the worst nightmare for most women as wrinkles removal treatment is thought to be extremely painful. Although the Olay Total Effects range is particularly effective but now you can even fight wrinkles naturally and bid adieu to the painful surgeries, laser treatments and botox therapy. Read below to find top 6 ways to fight wrinkles painlessly:

1. Exfoliate:

To reduce wrinkles it is best to exfoliate the top most layer of the skin. Scrubs and alpha-hydroxy acids works wonder as an exfoliant. For best results exfoliate every alternate day.

2. Vitamin A: 

Derivates of Vitamin A like Retin A, Retinol and Tazorotene are very helpful in exfoliating the skin and stimulating collagen growth. There are many products available in the market that contain the derivatives of Vitamin A. But remember you need to have prescription from certified physicians. 

3.Moisturize and hydrate: 

Keeping your body hydrated is very important from both inside and out. Drink at least 8 to 10 glasses of water and use good quality moisturizer. Olive oil and coconut oil are well known skin hydrators especially for the aging skin. The virgin coconut oil keep the connective tissues of the skin supple and strong reducing the chances of sagging and wrinkles. You may even choose a moisturizer suitable for you from the famed Shahan Husain products range. 

4. Add oils: 

Hydrating body with water is not enough. For best results, hydrate the body using oils. Include Omega 3 fatty acids in your diet as they keep the skin cells strong and moisturized. This in turn decreases the appearance of fine lines. 

5. Use wrinkle-freezers:

Wrinkle freezers freezes the current wrinkles and even prevent the appearance of the newer ones by using Dysport and Botox. These two work by preventing the contractions of the muscle. This not only erases the current wrinkles but also prevents the formation of the newer ones.

6. Avoid exposure to sun: 
It is best to make efforts to protect the skin from direct sun. The main reason of the development of the wrinkles is the sun damage. It is advisable to wear sunscreen that has at least SPF30. Adding the large brimmed hats and sunglasses to your wardrobe is also an effective way to protect both your skin and eyes.

As a child we all have played with our mom's vanity box. I loved playing with  her lipsticks & spraying those perfumes when no one was watching me.

Pantene Total Damage Control

Break the vicious cycle of unhealthy hair with Pantene Total Damage Control Range

According to researchers at Pantene, weakened damaged hair is a sign of a deeper underlying hair problem - the cycle of unhealthy hair. Inspired by this insight, Pantene stared to delve deeper into the cycle of unhealthy hair and introduced a superior range of hair care treatment - Pantene Total Damage Care.

In particular, this regimen of Shampoo + Conditioner + Treatment protects your hair against split ends with better conditioning system. The improved wet conditioning prevents tangles & breakage while the dry conditioning allows you to comb through with ease, protecting the cuticle from splitting due to friction & damaged cuticles.

"With its various symptoms of lack of resilience, dullness, tangles and split ends, weakened hair is a common frustration amongt women, who may not realize that this stems from being trapped in the cycle of unhealthy hair. Without proper direct intervention in the form of an intensive rinse-off treatment that gives hair a protective layer in between washes, poor hair health will continually be perpetuated & reinforced," says Coleen Khan, P&G Beauty Hair Expert.

About 2 months back I received an invite from the Pantene Social Media for a Blogger Meet in Mumbai for the launch of Pantene Total Damage Control Range. But due to my hectic work schedule I was not able to travel to Mumbai to attend the meet & Rebecca from Pantene sent me the samples to try & I cannot thank her enough coz Pantene Total Damage Control Range has everything that I have always wanted for my hair. I also received the photographs of the event which I am sharing here with you.

My hair have been rough & dry ever since I remember & as a child my mom use to apply a lot of oil to my hair to keep it manageable. Over the years I tried different shampoos & treatment however did not find any good in them. I had to struggle a lot with my hair if I ever wanted to keep them open. However now I do not have to do much &  I cannot keep my hands off my hair.

Pantene Total Damage Control - Ingredients

Price : Pantene Total Damage Control Shampoo Rs. 117 for 180ml
            Pantene Total Damage Control Conditioner Rs. 59 for 80 ml

As I already told you my hair have been dry & rough plus every time I washed my hair it used to get all tangled & a lot of hair breakage use to happen when I had to untangle my hair. I started using the Pantene Total Damage Control about 4 weeks back & ever since my first wash I have not been able to stop touching my hair. My hair are now so soft & have volume and the best part is that they do not get tangled at all. My hair breakage has gone down to almost ZERO. I use to wash my hair 3 times a week before i started using the Pantene Total Damage Control however now twice a week works great for my hair. 
The packaging is very travel friendly as the bottles have very sturdy flip locks. My experience with Pantene Total Damage Control shampoo & conditioner has been very good. I would recommend this to all of you.

Have you tried the Pantene Total Damage Control ???
