How much does genetics have to do with the way your skin ages?

If you want to get an idea of how your skin might have a tendency to age then there is some truth in the advice that you should look at your parents. Genetics can have an effect on the aging of your skin. The good news is that they do not have as much effect as the habits you develop and the way you treat your skin. This means that you have a major say in the way your skin ages.

We are going to take a look at how genetics have some effect on your skin’s aging process. We are also going to examine the effect you can have by ceasing unhealthy habits, using a solution such as an anti aging peptide and generally taking good care of your skin.

How do genetics factor in to the aging of your skin?

There is certainly a link between your genetic make-up and the speed with which your skin naturally ages. For instance, people with fair skin have a tendency to show signs of aging earlier than those with a darker complexion. Sagging, wrinkles and varicose veins are all things which you can be genetically predisposed.
Before you start abandoning your anti aging regimes and giving up, it’s important to note that your actions play a much bigger role in the aging of your skin than genetics. Let’s take a look at what you can do to slow down the aging process of your skin.

Stopping smoking

One of the best ways of helping your skin to age more slowly is to stop smoking. Of course, there are many health benefits of giving up the habit, but the benefits of having healthier and better looking skin should not be underestimated. Smoking reduces the elasticity in skin. It also reduces the amount of moisture present and the amount of Vitamin A.
You can see the effects of all this on the faces of people who smoke. They tend to have more wrinkles and sagging skin. Wrinkles are often especially apparent at the corners of a person’s eyes and mouth. If you smoke, and you want to improve the look and condition of your skin, the best way to do so is quit the habit.

Having a good skincare regime

The skin’s aging process begins when you are in your twenties so you need to develop a good skincare routine from when you are young. It’s worth investing the time and effort to try and make sure that your skin continues to look young and fresh for as long as possible. You need to do your research and experiment in order to discover the products and system that are best suited to the needs of your skin.
It’s certainly true that the way your skin ages owes something to your genetic make-up. This does not mean that you cannot help determine the aging process by the way you treat your skin and the habits you choose to give up.

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
