"Your sleep position can contribute to premature aging. To avoid creases along the sides of your face and nostrils, that will eventually become wrinkles, sleep on your back with enough pillows to support and elevate your head."- Chantal Monique"If you find yourself enjoying one of autumn's most popular pastimes; apple picking- keep these skin healthy facts in mind: Apples contain antioxidants (vitamin compounds that scavenge and destroy free radicals) and minerals that fight aging, boost the immune system and protect against UV damage. Apples also have an astringent property to them, that is not only helpful to regulating sebum production but can also help your teeth from food and drink staining." - Chantal Monique
