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.

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days....

Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table...
Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served... 
Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns...  And the most delicious part is none other…

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 …

Night Market Along Lee Garden Plaza Hotel, Hatyai

BY THE TIME WE REACHED THE HOTEL, it was almost dark. This time round, we took a longer rest in the hotel... my girl might not need it but I certainly did!  After recharging around 80% of my body strength, we were ready to explore the streets again.

Our hotel is really a strategic spot for us tourists.  The street vendors were all ready to boost their sales in front, at the side and along the whole stretch of street where we stayed.  Left, right, front... the place was filled with people and tourists like us... I could hear some of them speaking my dialect, we felt kind of at home instead of being tourists....

Besides the street vendors in front of the hotel, there was a night market just five minutes walking distance away from our hotel, Lee Garden Plaza.... Maybe they only opened during the weekends?  I am not sure about that.. .anyway, we were kind of excited to see all the bright lights along the street....

Come... Let's Go!
We started from the beginning of the street...  A …
