Wikitravellers typically include one or two paragraphs about themselves personally and their areas of interest in Wikitravel. A portrait photograph or other picture may be appropriate but isn't necessary. Some Wikitravellers also keep a list of articles they've worked on (a ''brag rag'') on their User page.

Overloaded User pages are considered a form of abuse.  In addition, while it is OK to associate yourself with your company if you work for or run a business, '''user pages should not be used for [[Wikitravel:Don't tout|advertising]]'''.
+
 
+
On the User page, a '''User contributions''' link to the additions and improvements a user has contributed to Wikitravel appears in the toolbox in the left sidebar. The User contributions page looks pretty much like a [[Wikitravel:Page history help|Page history]] page, with the same fields.

Wikitravellers should use their User page for developing new ideas about Wikitravel, or for putting together a "toolbox" of frequently-needed text and [[Wikitravel:Wiki markup|Wiki markup]]. It can be helpful to create subpages (example: "[[User:MyName/Sandbox]]") for tools, brag rags, new article brainstorming, and TODO lists.

+
It's possible for other users to edit, change, delete, move, overwrite, add to, or otherwise mess around with User pages or subpages. It's generally considered bad form to do so, though, unless invited by the user.

+
It's important to remember that while User pages and subpages don't need to follow the style guidelines for Wikitravel articles -- after all, these are for personal organization and use -- all content '''must''' be under our [[:shared:Copyleft|copyleft]].

If another Wikitraveller posts new text on your User talk page, you will see a small red flashing light at the top of the page next to "my talk".

User talk pages also have a [[Wikitravel:User email help|Email this user]] link in the toolbox on the left menu. Because email from the site can be disabled by the user, however, it's often more useful and preferred to just post a comment on the user's [[Wikitravel:Using talk pages|personal talk page]].

Anti-aging serums are predominantly moisturizer based cosmeceutical skin care products marketed with the promise of making the consumer look younger by reducing visible wrinkles, expression lines, blemishes, pigmentation changes, discolorations and other environmentally (especially from the sun) related conditions of the skin. A comprehensive grading scale for anti-aging of the skin has been validated and categorizes skin aging as: laxity (sagging), rhytids (wrinkles), and the various categories of photo aging, including erythema (redness), depigmentation (brown discolorations), solar elastosis (yellowing), keratoses (abnormal growths), and poor texture.

Despite great demand, many such products and treatments have not been proven to give lasting or major positive effects. One study found that the best performing creams reduced wrinkles by less than 10% over 12 weeks which is not noticeable to the human eye. Another study found that cheap moisturizers were as effective as high-priced anti-wrinkle serums. However, recent studies at Manchester University showed that some ingredients have an effect.

Traditionally, anti-aging serums have been marketed towards women, but products specifically targeting men are increasingly common.
