I stumbled on a website once selling emu oil for $70.00+ claiming it was practically the fountain of youth. You can get 100% pure emu oil in any health food stores and some drugstores for as low as $10.00 depending on the size. Even if you where to bathe in the stuff every day you would get soft skin but no wrinkles? I doubt it.
Aging is something we can't get away from, in a way, it's the only justice. This being a "beauty blog" I put more emphasis on skin care but anti-aging or should I say aging gracefully is a lot more than that.
