Brooke Walker, Studio 5With the wisdom and experience of age comes "beauty battle wounds" of maturity: fine lines and wrinkles. All week on Studio 5 we are providing solutions for your changing body.

It's been a week of body busters. On Monday we talked about how to speed up your changing metabolism, this morning we discussed makeup for the mature face, and tomorrow we will talk about wrinkle releasers. We're going to rate and reveal the best non-surgical options to reduce fine lines and wrinkles.

Many people fail to realize their skin is as much an organ as any other body part, and it also ages. Unfortunately, there is no magic switch to reverse years of maturity, but with proper protection and care there a few things we can do to turn back the clock, if only by seconds.

Tomorrow, one of the state's leading dermatologists, Dr. Robert Young, will be joining us in studio. He says the one thing we often overlook in the aging of our skin is the effect on it from the outside environment. Living in the Rocky Mountains, that includes the effects of sun and a dry climate.

When it comes to skin care and wrinkle reversal, the important factors to remember are to moisturize and protect. You also want to make sure that your own lifestyle does not contribute to skin damage.

For example, long, hot showers with a harsh soap will work against your body and prevent your skin cells from holding onto moisture.

Along with other protection tips, Dr. Young will rate and reveal the best creams, treatments and products that can help improve the look and health of your skin. That's tomorrow morning at 11:00 on Studio 5.
