How To Stay Younger Looking

How often do you ask the questions, how to stay attractive? how to keep attractive? am I attractive? So many of us are looking for ways how to stay younger looking. We've all heard the sayings:

Benjamin Franklin:"Dost thou love life? Then do not squander time, for that the stuff life is made of."

C. S. Lewis:
"The future is something which everyone reaches at the rate of sixty minutes an hour, whatever he does, whoever he is."

Mark Twain:
"Time and tide wait for no man. A pompous and self-satisfied proverb, and was true for a billion years; but in our day of electric wires and water-ballast we turn it around: Man waits not for time nor tide."

So can anybody explain the Cosmetics Industry to me please? and more importantly can anybody explain the obsessive use of psuedo-scientific many barrelled gobbledy gook product names!

What the heck is "re-perfecting"? basically it implies "you are now ugly but you can do something about it!"

When you just read the words without the packaging and the glamorous model its clear these products are creation of the advertising mind. A mind that heightens fears and worries, turns them into a problem, and then offers a miracle solution all wrapped up in quasi scientific jargon for added "authoritative effect and enhanced scientific underpinning" sounds good eh! want to buy some?

Superdefense SPF25 Age Defense
Super Rescue Antioxidant Night Moisturizer
Turnaround Concentrate Visible Skin Renewer
Repairwear Deep Wrinkle Concentrate
Total Effects Eye Transforming Cream
Total Effects Targeted Wrinkle Repair

and so on...

So is there a solution? I think there is because most non corporately hitched scienists would recommend a good diet and exceriseover face cream.

How about this? Sit back in your chair and I'll turn back time. Close your eyes and I'll transport you there. I've re-created...
