Scam Of The Ages
How many times have you seen these ads thrown into your face ? The words revitalizing, clinically proven, and LOOK BETTER IN 24 HOURS repeated like some kind of ritual. It is the newest craze in personal care and people are flocking with the herd to the pharmacy in record numbers. The source of all this foolery is a life force attacking army sent by the same "scientist" who say flu shots are good for you with artillery made up of scented creams, flavored pills, and deodorizing sprays called anti-aging products. There has been an overwhelming amount of buzz throughout the last few years on these "breakthrough fountain of youths" with the majority focusing on the skin (wrinkles, drooping of eyes etc.). They all claim to be the next big thing and all guarantee results that they can never pull through on. The best sellers have flashy advertisements full of catch phrases and unrealistic before and after photo's that leave my mind numb but tickle the average person's buying bone to the point where they can no longer stand without having it. Maybe not that ridiculous but you catch my drift. This entire anti aging fad is nothing more than a scam out to take your money and make you age quicker only having to buy more products as a result. It's the same nonsense that tricks the consumer year after year. Achieving anti aging actually has nothing to do with these products or the skin in general, it is strictly about the condition of your body. What you eat, drink, inhale, any type of consumption you make relates to the aging process. If you are constantly eating fast food's filled with processed garbage and drinking corn syrup, aspartame filled soft drinks your body will age and ultimately shut down at an alarming rate. On the contrary if you are feeding yourself with organic meats, vegetables, and drinking tons of water your body will show very little signs of aging at all and you will feel on top of the world. This is not to say that taking care of your skin is not important either. Almost all of the skin care products sold on the market today are pumped full of chemicals that will actually majorly damage your skin over time. There's many different practices you can use to properly moisturize your skin but two typically easy to find sources are coconut oil and aloe lotion, all nature and organic of course. Exercise is also key to slowing down the aging process. You need to exercise daily, no matter what you are doing just try and work up a sweat at the very least a few times a week. The last piece to the puzzle is your state of mind or emotional level. If you are level headed and generally happy you will live longer and if you're the opposite aka a negative person who stresses easily you will most likely age much faster and even if you don't your life will not be the most pleasant experience anyways. Why live long if you're unhappy and unsatisfied. If you're going to be striving to live a healthy life you may as well live a happy life. It's just that simple, you don't need to go out and buy one of the thousand different creams or pills you just need to visit a local farmer. The point is don't fall into the trap of anti aging and buy loads of garbage that will only worsen your life. It's the same for any health problem, just eat and drink what is closest to nature as possible. Consume as nature intends it!
