A: No matter what you hear, what you read, or what you want to belive, skin aging cannot be reversed. But there are steps you can take to control the situation.

The appearance and signs of skin aging can be minimized, and further skin aging can be controlled. New scientific research has uncovered ingredients that work on biochemical level control skin aging, all while minimizing current signs of skin aging. Some of these ingredients include antioxidant vitamins C and E, Glucosamine, Peptides, Lactic, Acid, Retinyl Palmitate, and of course, daily use of SPF. Speak with your professional skin therapist about a customized regimen to help control the signs of skin aging

During the month of March Utopia Chalet challenges you and invites you to share your story as a working woman, whether inside or outside of the home. What messages and lessons did you get from other women in your life? What obstacles have you faced? What objectives and goals keep you up at night? What was your mother’s deepest wish for you, and how was it expressed? What is your deepest wish for your daughter? And, were you raised by, or are you yourself a strong, independent woman?
