It matters, it really does. You may think now that you are older that it’s hopeless. You may have even thrown your hands up in the air in frustration saying “that’s it! I give up!” Here’s the thing though, you should NEVER give up on something that matters; and that thing that matters is YOU! You deserve to feel beautiful and you deserve to turn heads.
Imagine….looking in the mirror before heading out into the world and having the confidence to say “damn I look good.” Wouldn’t that feel amazing?
Some simple tricks can do just that for you. You’ll be turning heads and igniting envy in women you come in contact with.
Your skin is your living and breathing best friend. It protects you and all of your vital inner workings from serious external assaults. When you take the time to nourish and feed it, it will respond by looking breathtakingly beautiful.
Take a stand and refuse to put chemicals on your skin. Just because a product is tucked nicely on a store shelf does not mean that it is safe for your skin or your health.
Feed your skin with pure and health skin care products. Yes, they may be a bit pricier than those you will find in the drugstore down the street, but you are worth it.
Many of the less expensive products nestled on the overcrowded shelf at your favorite store are loaded with cheap ingredients that can damage your skin as well as your health over time.
Let me explain….
It’s been reported that 60% of what you put on your skin is absorbed into your blood stream and can be deposited in your tissue where it can accumulate and has the potential to seriously harm your health.
In fact many companies are fully aware that they are putting known carcinogens and hormone disrupters into their products! They claim that those particular ingredients are in such small doses that they won’t do any harm.
So, what happens after years and years of applying those “small” amounts again and again and again? What happens if those “small” amounts build up and accumulate in your tissue? Doesn’t sound too good does it?
It’s not worth the risk.
Nourish your skin with pure ingredients from nature bringing your complexion back to a healthy state. I use and swear by Gaelle Organic. She has created a line that is not only effective but loaded with incredibly high quality natural and organic ingredients. She is dedicated to giving you safe products that really work and she has gotten it right!
The other secret to a more youthful complexion is red light therapy. This remarkable facial treatment offers astonishing results with ease and convenience.
It’s safe and gentle yet packs a powerful punch at a deep cellular level. This wonderful healing and reparative light wakes up your collagen and elastin production, increases circulation, boosts cellular energy, and so much more.
With continued treatments you will find your skin looking younger, brighter, and smoother with a beautiful glow from within. It’s absolutely one of the easiest ways that I have found to improve your skin by leaps and bounds. You don’t have to be skilled or technical in order to treat your skin to red light therapy.
Some of the most powerful and effective systems on the market and ones I personally LOVE are the DPL Therapy System and the Baby Quasar Plus or the Quasar MD. They are so powerful that they are actually used in spas and medical clinics.
Your hair can also have a huge impact on your appearance and how old you look. Coarse, dry, flat, and of course gray hair make you look older, period. Whereas, shiny and bouncy hair makes you look younger and healthier.
Choosing the right cut is extremely important and visiting a reputable hair salon such as Rush Guildford in the UK or visiting one of the top 100 U.S. salons listed in Elle Magazine will help ensure you get the BEST cut possible.
It’s a myth that you have to all of a sudden cut your hair short once you have reached that certain age. You really want to focus on a cut that compliments your features.
According to Marc Anthony, founder of Marc Anthony Salons, you want to look at the way the lines form on your face. If your lines go out like crow’s feet he says that long hair can give the illusion of shorter crow’s feet.
But, he goes on to say that if your lines travel up and down like the number 11s that can form between your brows or laugh lines around your mouth then long hair may emphasize them. If this is the case for you then he suggests trying sweeping bangs, a layered bob, or a cute pixie cut.
Not only will the cut of your hair reinvent your look, but using naturally healthy oils such as coconut oil or argan oil regularly will improve the health and texture of your hair.
You also want to be sure to go light on styling products. The stiffer your hair, the older you will look. You want your hair to be flowy and bouncy. Your hair should move freely not remain stiff and motionless.
Making a few changes to your regimen and implementing these tricks will not only make you look spectacularly gorgeous, but in the process your spirit will be lifted and your confidence will soar!
