Wrinkle creams: Your guide to younger looking skin

Many wrinkle creams and lotions sold in department stores, in drugstores and on the Internet promise to reduce wrinkles and prevent or reverse damage caused by the sun.

Do they work? Research suggests that some wrinkle creams contain ingredients that may improve wrinkles. But many of these ingredients haven't undergone scientific research to prove this benefit.

If you're looking for a face-lift in a bottle, you probably won't find it in over-the-counter (nonprescription) wrinkle creams. But they may slightly improve the appearance of your skin, depending on how long you use the product and the amount and type of the active ingredient in the wrinkle cream.

How Not to Overeat

Written By New Life Ministries (copied from the Internet) – Consider the following suggestions to help you cope with the strong urges to overeat.

1. Give definition to your mealtime. Have regularly scheduled meals with healthy varied menus. Set an eating schedule that suits your needs (such as 3 main meals per day at set times). Have a special place to eat along with a table setting so that your meal has a clear beginning and ending.

2. Give yourself positive statements while you examine your struggle to overeat such as: “This urge is strong now, but I know it often goes away in a few minutes. Hunger signals come and go and increase over time. I’ll rate the intensity now and again when it returns.” “I’ll trust myself. I’m confusing my emotions with my urge to overeat. I’ve already eaten enough regular normal meals. ”What am I thinking and feeling? What do I need to do with these emotions now, other than overeat?
