ONE-SIDED LOVE

Skin expose to the sunThere’s nothing more wonderful than waking up in the morning with the sunshine on your face. But nothing can be more irritating than having the sun follow you all day. Many people nowadays tend to indulge in the trend of sun-bathing; they believe that “tan is beautiful”. But one thing they don’t know is that the sun can cause skin damage; or maybe they do know but they don’t want to open their eyes to the truth. Question is, “does the sun cause wrinkles? Well, some of us know that this question only has one answer and that would be a Yes. Now, how are we supposed to address the issue?

One thing’s for sure, sun bathing is not good for your health. Looking good makes you feel good, but what are you supposed to be looking forward to? Beautiful, healthy looking skin that is actually only momentarily; or skin that might not be so vibrant in color but will last longer and look younger because you protected it from the sun. Well, guys, here’s what you need to know. We may love the sun but the sun doesn’t and won’t reciprocate what we feel. It will only get you damaging your skin.

Does the sun cause wrinkles? The number one factor of skin damage is the sun and getting exposed to it for a long period of time gives way to the chance of breaking down elastin, a fiber that is responsible for the elasticity of the skin. When this happens, the skin will start to sag and will find it hard to return to normal after stretching. When elastin is broken, skin tends to become weak and easily bruised or torn.

I guess then we won’t need to ask the question does the sun cause wrinkles anymore. Because whether we ask that or not, there will only be one truth to this myth. We won’t get our feelings reciprocated when talking about how we feel towards the sun. Try to love others instead, you might have a chance; just don’t take chances on the sun.

MAKING UP FROM MAKE-UP

does wearing makeup causes wrinklesThese past few nights may have been serving very rough for my skin. Events and press conferences here and there; which only meant that my face didn’t have room to breathe from make-up. Then when I come home from the events, I wash my face and notice that every single time; my face tends to grow a little bit pale and dull-looking. I also noticed some Hollywood stars that look older than their age whenever they get caught without the make-up. And I start asking myself does foundation cause wrinkles?

For my long years of stay in the show business, I started out using powdery foundation, but as technology evolved; make-up artists soon start using liquid foundations. According to some researches, the use of liquid foundation lessens the chances of someone to get wrinkles ahead of time. People all around the world and not only actresses/performers like me, use foundation whenever they want to even out uneven coloring of the skin or when they want to look good. Continue reading
