For example, freed from all the stress and sun exposure that goes along with daytime chores, your body works hard to generate new skin cells and produce as much collagen as possible.
However, as we age these reparative processes become alarmingly less efficient, resulting in sagging, wrinkles, dryness, smile lines, and crow’s feet, none of which anyone of us should take lying down, so to speak.
Admittedly, some might think crows are cool and all, but why would you ever want their feet on your face?
“Crows are ‘hella’ noisy, and maybe kind of scary sometimes, but you know what? I really want their feet on my face!”, said literally no one ever.
Let the crows keep their scraggly feet, and you, your smooth and supple skin.
To give your body a helping hand in this noble effort to keep your skin looking young, beautiful, and bereft of any part of some noisy bird’s anatomy, you will want to start by first getting enough sleep.
“Enough” is generally defined as “at least eight hours of sleep a night”.
Additionally, you will want to engage in a consistent and comprehensive skin care routine, a large part of which will involve utilizing a truly great night cream.
The right night cream will hydrate and firm up your skin, diminish sun spots, smooth lines, and negate the effects of free radicals, all without being too oily (which can result in clogged pores and breakouts). See our “no-crows-allowed” list here for the best night creams for women.
