    And other things you should know when you are still youthful

    Moisturise your breasts
    Ideally using oils (castor is recommended), to stop them from sagging as you get older. Really!!! DO IT EVERY DAY.

    Wear Sunscreen
    Biggest cause of skin ageing (apart from getting old of course!). If anything just put it on delicate spots/places that show signs of ageing first ie. hands and your eye area. But yes definitely keep those hands protected.

    Any other things people want to add?

    Its really the moisturise your breasts thing I wanted to spread the word about. Haven't been on here in a while but I figured you lot are mostly of the age where this advice can be utilised with best results :p:

    And not that I'm a hugely looks obsessive person but its just those little things that make a big difference...

    Can't I just wear a REALLY good bra?

    People cook with castor oil don't they? I don't know that I want to rub it on my boobs :/


    Hmm, maybe my boyfriend will do it for me :P

    I do that anyway - I use greek refined olive oil for the body. Sounds expensive but its really not. I really massage in well into all of my body - esp the breasts. And I can really tell the difference esp as I have quite full and heavy breasts. I recommend it to every girl. Take care to moisturise/oil your nipples very well too!

    Edit: dont pour it all over - just use enough to create a slight sheen on your skin. I would use moisturiser but it never sets into my skin as well as oil.

    I do this every day.

    After my morning shower, I moisturise everything, not just my breasts. I just like having soft skin.

    I do this every day when I come out the shower, although I just do it all over.

    I can't really do it at the moment because I've pulled a muscle in my back really badly tho, I hope I don't wake up to find my boobs at my feet tomorrow :tongue:

    Well, I get mine from Soho Road in Birmingham from a shop called Beauty Queen Cosmetics. Its like mass wholesale store full of exotic products at really low prices. It has the whole Palmer's Cocoa Butter Range of products - the ones that you couldn't even get in the biggest of Boots or Superdrug. I swear by that shop. The oil I get is £2.49 for 250 ml and it lasts a good while. It doesn't smell or anything and a little goes a long way.

    Yep I always moisturise all over after a shower... with body shop satsuma body butter which smells gorgeous... I've had loads of people ask me what the smell is, I even had a lady in the gym who was like 'Oh my god that smells amazing' (kinda veering on creepy though). I recommend it to anyone.

    More on-topic-
    don't rub moisturisers/makeup in around your eyes, apply with a patting/tapping motion so as not to stretch the skin.
