Hello, I am a 22 year old Caucasian/ white female ,and very fair skinned. I am wanting to start my skin off right. When it comes to aging what is the best thing to do to prevent wrinkles and keep healthy skin (body and face) as I age. To be honest I am almost afraid to try anything because I hear so much about products I should or shouldn't use. I have even heard that some products will CAUSE wrinkles. I really have never had an "acne" problem real bad, but I have plenty of black heads on my nose, chin, and, for some weird reason, near the corner of my lips on that very soft-sensitive skin. My concern, on this subject,  is sometimes when a blackhead goes through its ridding process, it leaves a ugly large pore behind. I recently had this happen right on the very tip of my nose. The pore is huge and very ugly. Of course it still sorta has a scab over it, but I saw the damaged pore immediately. Any advise, tips, conversation ~whatever~will be very much appreciated. I am open to any comments. I am needing some guidance.Thanks everyone.

Natural skin care products are the best. You can be sure that there is no harmful chemical in your skin care product that can damage your skin. Fruits and vegetables have its own antioxidants that can help our skin to look younger and brighter. You can also use a natural facial mask that you can purchase online or in your local drugstore. Use products that have coconut oil and betacarotene.

You should look at products made from the Aloe Ferox plant. The gel of the African Cape Aloe or Aloe ferox plant, contains 36% more total amino acids and more than 20 times the bitter sap with aloin than it’s counterpart the Aloe Vera plant. The specimens that grows in the Southern Cape of South Africa has the highest aloin content in the country – and therefore the world. Aloe Ferox is rich in Amino Acids and minerals, stimulating skin rejuvenation with the effect of a smooth, soft and healthy skin. Look in Ebay under Aloe Ferox.

Well - I am a firm believer of cleansing the skin and introducing excellent nutrition as well as detoxing. Since the skin is the biggest organ of our body and can absorb just about everything it come in contact with as well as reflect our health from the inside, we have to be sure to keep it it fantastic condition. If we don't do this, it will turn on us for sure. I use a breakthrough serum that penetrates the outer skin layers which nourishes and replenishes and leaves my skin revitalized, brighter, and more radiant. So look for something like that that will go deep, not just stay on the surface.
