[00:00.00]喜欢hxen.com,就把hxen.com复制到QQ个人资料中! Why Are Women Afraid of Wrinkles
[00:-1.00]When I casually mentioned to a colleague
[00:-2.00]that I was looking into skin cream that claimed
[00:-3.00]to beat back the destruction that comes with age,
[00:-4.00] her worries poured out. A month ago, she told me,
[00:-5.00]she had suddenly noticed wrinkles all over her face.
[00:-6.00]Fingering her beautiful but finely-lined features, she explained that,
[00:-7.00]although she knew that her discovery had more
[00:-8.00]to do with the shock resulting from the sudden end of a six-year relationship than early ageing,
[00:-9.00]she just had to do something about it.
[00:10.00]Giving her the painful facts concerning her chance to renew herself,
[00:11.00]I told her I thought the claims of such miracle cures were ridiculous.
[00:12.00]Despite my remarks, however,
[00:13.00]she begged to know where she could get the treatments I had mentioned.
[00:14.00]When it comes to beauty who wants to know the truth?
[00:15.00]Our ability to believe what we want to has, in the past,
[00:16.00]made life easy for the beauty industry.
[00:17.00]Fuelled by the immense value attached to youth,
[00:18.00]it has made millions out of vacant promises of renewing faces and bodies.
[00:19.00]To give skin care scientific authority,
[00:20.00]beauty counters have now stolen a thin covering of respectability
[00:21.00]from the hospital clinic.
[00:22.00]Sales staff in white coats "diagnose" skin types on "computers"
[00:23.00]and blind customers with the science of damaged molecules and DNA repair.
[00:24.00]Providing the "drugs" for this game,
[00:25.00]the industry has created new skin therapies which, they say,
[00:26.00]don't just sit on the surface but actually interact with the cells.
[00:27.00]Is this really just a harmless game, though?
[00:28.00]The increasingly exaggerated claims made by manufacturers
[00:29.00]about their products' ability to get rid of wrinkles have worried doctors.
[00:30.00]The advertisements declare that active ingredients stimulate cells deep
[00:31.00]in the skin's layers to divide,
[00:32.00]so replacing old cells and effectively renewing the skin.
[00:33.00]If these claims are true, could the effects be harmful?
[00:34.00]If normal cells can be stimulated to divide,
[00:35.00]then abnormal ones could also be prompted to multiply,
[00:36.00]so causing or accelerating skin cancer.
[00:37.00]A new arrival on the anti-wrinkle front claims
[00:38.00]to be a more natural way to avoid those terrible lines.
[00:39.00]As a pill rather than a cream, Imedeen works from the inside out,
[00:40.00]providing the skin with nutritional and chemical support
[00:41.00]to encourage the body's own self-repairing process.
[00:42.00]First developed in Scandinavia, it contains extracts of fish,
[00:43.00]marine plants, and shrimp shells,
[00:44.00]which provide a formula including proteins, minerals, and vitamins.
[00:45.00]According to a published study,
[00:46.00]visible improvements appear in the skin texture after two
[00:47.00]or three months of treatment.
[00:48.00]The skin is softer, smoother, wrinkles decrease but are not eliminated,
[00:49.00]and marks and fine brown lines disappear.
[00:50.00]One woman admits she was doubtful until she tried Imedeen herself.
[00:51.00]Women, she believes, should take responsibility
[00:52.00]for the natural balance of their body chemistry.
[00:53.00]Careful care of the body chemistry, she says,
[00:54.00]not only improves looks but also enhances energy processes
[00:55.00]and even expands awareness and mental function.
[00:56.00]Imedeen fits this concept by providing for the skin's needs.
[00:57.00]But can shrimp shells really do the trick with wrinkles?
[00:58.00]Offering a more scientific interpretation,
[00:59.00]Brian Newman, a British surgeon who has studied Imedeen,
[-1:00.00]explains that the compound has a specific action as food is digested,
[-1:-1.00]preventing the destruction of essential proteins in the diet
[-1:-2.00]and allowing them to be absorbed in a state more easily utilized by the skin.
