I have asked this one time in this blog: Will you consider going under the knife? I mentioned not long ago about my accepting the fact that in two years time I will no longer be considered as a 20 something blogger. The last statement isn't going to confirm that I will consider cosmetic surgery. I know I wouldn't. I just want to establish one point here... that I, like everybody else, will have visible signs of aging in no time if we will not do something to prevent its early occurrence. I am sweating a bit about the 'aging' word. I admit to not really taking care of my skin, I just put lotion on my body, wash my face with a facial wash when I wake up and before I sleep and if I am in the mood, I'd probably put a toner. That is just about it. I don't remember going for a facial or a dermatologist for that matter. Well, now I realize that I have been a bad girl. It is not yet late for me to change my skin care routine, I am actually truly considering a more sophisticated and advanced means to impede aging... no, not cosmetic procedure, I am thinking more of a natural anti aging procedure.
There are many products in the market that promises to make us younger looking in just a week and to reverse the signs of aging. I am not a doctor but I know that the worst enemy of the skin are free radicals. According to studies, the effective way to stop these free radicals is through antioxidants (Vitamins C, E and glutathione) that can be found in fruits and vegetables. Well, just recently, I have read that a compound called ergothioneine is a super anti-oxidant... imagine what it can do now that there is the prefix super on the word. Ergothioneine (ERGO) is a water soluble and naturally occurring amino acid (building block of protein) found in various types of mushrooms and grapes. ERGO, according to studies conducted by Oxis International, may help maintain the level of antioxidants in our body. It may also reduce the damaging effects of UV rays. Oxis International (a penny stock company) is engaged in the research, development and sales of antioxidant products and is the premier provider of ergothioneine. Oxis will launch their products 'Ergo-Pur' and 'Ergo-Plex' that contains the super anti-oxidant L-Ergothioneine this Summer of 2010. Now that is something to look forward to.
