The Bird That Can Banish Age Spots - Articles Surfing

One good way of looking at aging is to look forward to all the stages that you will experience or advance through. Like the piece of carbon that gets polished and eventually turns into a diamond, you will attain more substance and beauty as you go along the many stages of life. Indeed, real beauty comes with age.

However, the same can not be said about your skin. As you go through life, your skin will age and age spots will soon be present on your skin. And like that piece of diamond with its unique cut, your personality can also be bound by the spots and folds on your skin. Your unique facial characteristics as exhibited by the condition of your skin will be your unique outward display of who you are.

As you age, your skin changes. In fact, there is no other organ in the body where aging can be that obvious except on your skin; to begin with, it is the largest organ in the body! As years go by, your skin will be damaged as it has been exposed to the elements like excessive sunlight or biting winter chill. Worse, your skin loses moisture and firmness as you count the years; hence, age spots will be inevitable.

The flat and brown spots that crop up on many parts of your body as you age are what you call age spots. And while they can be scattered all around your body, their favorite areas are your hands, neck, and face. Ordinarily, age spots can not be a cause for any alarm. But there are cases where they indicate excessive buildup of toxins in the body.

This is because the growth of age spots on your skin can also be blamed on smoking, improper diet, and sedentary lifestyle that can affect your liver and other organs that are responsible for cleansing out wastes in your system. So looking deeper into the issue, age spots can indicate cellular damage in your body's internal system that is more than just excessive exposure to the sun.

But before your whole existence is defined by the age spots on your skin, you can decide to eliminate them or, at least, minimize their development. You can change the quality of your skin as you age. And the most practical way of preventing age spots from ruining your appearance and giving away your age, is to change your lifestyle and provide extra nourishment for your aging skin. The lifestyle part can be difficult and is all up to you; but in today's beauty-conscious society, the extra nourishment part can be easily sustained with countless skin care moisturizers and other creams.

A good nourishment for your skin that can decrease age spots is the essential oil extracted from Emu, which is one of the largest birds found in Australia. This oil is increasingly becoming popular because it contains essential fatty acids like omega 3 and 9. While it may sound more like a supplement against cardiovascular diseases, Emu oil has the ability to stimulate blood circulation.

As a moisturizer, this oil is heavy with skin rejuvenating and softening characteristics. Lab tests have shown that Emu oil not only stops the development of age spots, it can also diminish the depth of wrinkles and other skin lines connected with aging. Emu oil products for your skin are typically non-greasy and they can easily penetrate derm tissues beneath the surface of the skin.
