I accidentally left a soaking wet tissue on my bathroom counter one night. Next morning it clearly demonstrated proof of something I had been saying for most of my 79 years. But NOW I can prove it… to you!
This was a clear demonstration of how much moisture our skin loses while we are asleep at night….which means our skin is aging faster than it should while we sleep…this has never been for me!! Like brushing my teeth at night – my night time cream must go on my face AND neck!
I accidentally left a wet tissue on my bathroom counter one night…I mean wet, dripping wet, not damp. Next morning I passed by it and could not believe it was the same tissue…it was dry…bone dry. No, there was no heat on in the house, it was October in Florida.
Thought it was a fluke, so wet another tissue and put it in a different place. Was NOT a fluke…it happened again…tissue was dry as a bone the next morning – I picked it up and it was completely dry, stiff, all moisture gone.
This is what happens to our skin while we sleep at night without protection from the night time elements. The skin reacts the same way losing its moisture, becoming dry and wrinkled. Our natural moisture escapes through the pores of our skin making way for aging skin before our time.
So I got my camera out and recreate my “Tissue Story” to let you see. Try it at home yourself and you will never go to bed without a moisturizer or night cream again.
To keep your skin youthful-looking and healthy, you must provide a layer of protection during the 7 or 8 hours of sleep. This will help soften and prevent lines and wrinkles well into old age. As you know I have anti-aging creams…OLEDA creams. They are developed by me and my lab experts.
How does this work?
Nutrients in moisturizers and night creams feed the skin, and also trap moisture so it can’t escape so readily, thus providing double treatment.
It doesn’t matter whether you live in the north or in the tropics, you’re subjected to mechanical heating and/or cooling to keep you comfortable. Both are devastating to your skin, creating dry air that hastens moisture evaporation.
Almost any ordinary moisturizer will help the problem, but, while I don’t usually tout OLEDA products in this forum, I am personally sold on the ones I use, because I believe my formulas are superior to even the most expensive moisturizing creams in the world.
[adrotate group=”2″]Take a look at the ingredient list of the moisturizer you’re now using, or any others. It is required that the list indicates the ingredients in order of prominence in the formula. Note that, most likely, water is the first ingredient listed in your moisturizer.
That’s okay; you certainly need water for moisturizing. OLEDA creams use it, too. But, the most prominent ingredient in OLEDA creams, the one that’s listed first, is not water, it’s Aloe Vera.
Aloe Vera is legendary for its nutritional properties in skin care, and, even though it’s an expensive ingredient, I insist it be the No 1 ingredient in most all OLEDA creams. Water is No 2.
But whether you use an aloe based cream or not, any cream is better than none.
