10 No-Brainer Ways to Conquer Aging Skin

10 No-Brainer Ways to Keep Your Skin Looking Young

10 No-Brainer Ways to Keep Your Skin Looking Young

‘Antiaging skin care’ is a very popular concept in today’s world. Today everyone wants to hide their age using antiaging skin care procedures (and a number of people are successful too). However antiaging skin care is not achieved by any magic potion. ‘Antiaging skin care’ is about discipline. It is about being proactive. Antiaging skin care is retarding the ageing process. Here are a few tips for proactive antiaging skin care:

healthyfood

1. Maintain healthy eating habits: A well balanced diet is the key to maintaining a proper body metabolism. Eat a lot of fruits and vegetables (raw), they are the best source of fibre and have a very refreshing effect on your body. Avoid oily and fatty food; not only do they lack in essential nutrients but also cause obesity and other diseases which aid the aging process

meditation

2. Beat stress: This is probably the most important antiaging skin care measure. Stress disturbs the body metabolism and accelerates the aging process. Sleep, exercise and a relaxing bath, are all good ways of beating stress. Aroma-therapy is also known to bust stress.

water

3. Drink a lot of water: Antiaging skin care can’t be any simpler than this. Water helps in flushing out the toxins from the body, hence keeping it clean and making it less prone to disease. Around 8 glasses of water (per day) is recommended by all doctors.

exercise

4. Regular exercise is a wonderful antiaging skin care procedure. Besides toning your muscles, it also helps in cleaning the skin by flushing out the toxins in the form of sweat. Exercise should be followed by a warm shower in order to completely remove the toxins.

5. Avoid the use of strong, chemical based products on your skin. Natural skin care products are a good option. Use of organic skin care products (home made or commercial) can be a very effective antiaging skin care measure.

6. Do not overuse skin care products. Excessive and harsh application, both are harmful.

dermatologist

7. Do not ignore skin disorders; it can lead to permanent skin damage. Try over the counter medication and if that doesn’t help, immediately visit your dermatologist and seek his/her advice.

oranges

8. Vitamin C based skin care products are very popular means of antiaging skin care. However, these seem to oxidise very quickly (which makes them harmful for the skin). So store them properly. If the product turns Yellowish brown, it means that vitamin c has oxidised and the prodct is no longer suitable for use.

harsh-sun

9. Protect your skin against UV radiation ; UV rays are known to speed up the aging process. So, a good sunscreen lotion should be a part of your antiaging skin care routine.

squinting

10.  Do not make unnecessary facial expressions out of habit such as squinting or holding an intense “resting face”. Your skin remembers each and every emotion projecting them out to the world in fragmented lines and wrinkles. Also falling into this category is unnecessary touching of the face or being rough with your skin. I would recommend using a satin pillowcase on your pillow at night to decrease lines, acne and the amount of hair lost from friction during sleep.

DMAE

Fight sagging~!

These are small, easy ways to make great strides in keeping your skin (and hair) looking as youthful as possible without obsessing about it. While you’re at it, don’t forget to include DMAE in your skin care routine to fight the sagging~! Ah, but that is another topic for another day.

Skin Care – What About Normal Young Skin?

TweetIt from HubSpot

Caring for Normal healthy skin

Caring for Normal healthy skin

How old should you be when you start a skin care routine? My skin is normal, do I need a skin care routine?

If you have normal skin, you will still want to keep up a basic skin care regime to ensure beautiful skin well into your later years. It is absolutely essential and considered simply good hygeine to take care of your skin. Soap and water is not enough and it’s not the answer. It’s important not to overdo any of the steps involved and use gentle products at all times since your skin can overreact to harsh treatments.

Step 1) Cleanse – Choose a cleanser for every day that does not use friction, granules or strong chemical exfoliants. Foaming is not important and the surface should feel not oily, not dry or tight after rinsing and patting dry.

Step 2) Tone – Toners can be anything from a boost of vitamins such as Best Ever Toner by ModelSupplies to preparations made for exfoliation and oil removal. Avoid alcohol, high contents of witch hazel or anything drying. Alpha hydroxy acids are popular in exfoliating toners, but they are best used at bedtime only since it reduces your skin’s ability to protect from the sun.

Step 3) Moisturize – Use a light moisturizer that is right for your skin. After applying the moisturizer, wait a few minutes and do the tissue test: if a ply of toilet tissue will stick to your forehead, it is too greasy of a lotion for you. Also, if it feels too oily, listen to your instincts. If your moisturizer is too heavy, it can cause your skin to stop producing oil for itself resulting in dry skin! The great thing is that you will know when you have the right one. Your skin will feel fresh, soft, and effortless.

Step 4) Sunscreen – Use at least SPF 30 sunscreen on your face and body every day! At least your face. The sooner you begin this action, the better. Most Moms know they need to put sunscreen on their children and they should teach them early as part of a routine. It is an action you can take to prevent skin cancer. Start very young and never stop!

Step 5) Masks – When your skin is young and normal, don’t torture it with drying mud masks or take heavy action. Once a week, a nice yogurt exfoliating mask would be great! You really only need to remove dead skin cells, excess oil buildup and get it done as gently as possible.

In the end, you really have the same routine as the rest of us, but with a more gentle product line and a few less steps.

Holiday Shopping – Time to Start Saving for Black Friday and Cyber Monday!

TweetIt from HubSpot

Black Friday Shoppers rush from bargain to great deal~!

Black Friday Shoppers rush from bargain to great deal~!

Listen up, fellow laid-off unemployed people~! Are you looking for your blessings in disguise? You may have forgotten about this little shopping gem…

It’s time to start saving for Black Friday and Cyber Monday shopping days! Black Friday is a shopping holiday in the United States that falls on the day after Thanksgiving. Cyber Monday is the Monday following the Thanksgiving weekend. Traditionally, Thanksgiving weekend kicks off the holiday shopping season with wonderful sales!

Black Friday is the fourth Friday in November in the USA

Black Friday is the fourth Friday in November in the USA

For the past 8 years or more, I have stepped aside at the newspaper where I was employed, being “the one who works” on these holidays. As a result, I have missed the opportunity to buy things at great prices all over my community on Black Friday, the date so-called since that is when retailers are said to break even and begin to make a profit for that year. I have also worked through Cyber Mondays because they were only important to me, the date that online retailers hold amazing sales encouraging holiday shoppers. Mondays were deadline days, so I missed the opportunity to optimize my online sales. I stepped aside because I have no children, did not host Thanksgiving and any number of reasons my bosses and co-workers could dream up. Fair? You know it’s not!

Cyber Monday this year will be EPIC for ModelSupplies!

Cyber Monday this year will be EPIC for ModelSupplies!

This year will be different! I’ve got numbers to back me up! I will storm the marketplace! Be unbeatable in the grab for the greatest deal and prepare for my own customers like never before! I will be waiting in line at 5 am in front of an electronics store! I have even done my research, well, ok, eBillMe.com did the research FOR me, but here it is!

Based on the amount of people who know about Cyber Monday – very few are planning to do holiday shopping on that day–however most prefer online shopping over Black Friday’s in store shopping.

This year Black Friday is Nov. 27, 2009 and Cyber Monday is Nov. 30, 2009.

So there you have it! I guess I will spend more time getting my online store in shape and ready for sales for Cyber Monday! (But I am still going to go out for my first Black Friday!) Either way, it’s time to start saving for that weekend now!

Last night for Halloween,  I “dressed up” my Twitter profile as Mae West and tweeted Mae’s quotes all night! If you have never done something like that, I HIGHLY recommend it for next year! It was a COMPLETE BLAST~!!!

Mae West was my "Twostume"

And I’ve been getting a lot of requests for custom wholesale – an oxymoron! LOL So have to

pull the plug on that one for now in small quantities since that is NOT wholesale, but

custom only – it should have a higher price!

And the doctors I ask about skin care are Dr. Perricone and Dr. Murad, mainly. Dr. François

Marceau did some testing on a rabbit’s ear in Canada – I am against animal testing for

cosmetics – and he is afraid DMAE causes fibroblasts – which are formed during the genysis

of collagen tissue, by the way, but hypothesizes that DMAE may cause thickening of the

skin. I have been using DMAE for 7 years and have nothing but fantastic things to say! Of

course I am not documented, so I am documenting that fact today! The article:

Anti-wrinkle compound causes pathological reaction in skin cells

Please note they are promoting other skin care lines on this page!

Save Money on Halloween Makeup

Cutting back on extras is an ongoing theme in the United States, but that doesn’t mean we don’t still know how to have a good time! The greasepaint used once a year for Halloween may stretch your budget a little too far, so I’ll tell you some ways to sidestep costs, mix your own and get great visual effects without breaking the bank.

Food coloring in small portion of everyday face makeup loose eyeshadow/eyebrow color such as minerals or ground up chalk – which also makes paint when mixed with Elmer’s glue – into small portion of everyday face makeup to make darker color – blue for death – green for hulk, witch, etc – red for devil, superhero, etc – white for vampires, geisha girl, etc.
burnt cork to get dirty appearance for bum, etc.

Make your own scars, blood, bruises, aging (brow pencil wrinkles, etc.)

Anti-Aging – How To Prevent and Get Rid of Under Eye Dark Circles

TweetIt from HubSpot

Make sure your eyes are FABULOUS this Holiday Season!

Make sure your eyes are FABULOUS this Holiday Season!

It’s that time of year again. Time to rush around shopping for all of the holidays! This is exciting and even I can get caught up in it, but there are a couple of things we need to do so we’ll still look great at all the parties!

What causes dark circles under your eyes? Is it from staying up late? Is it from not getting enough sleep? Well, yes, lack of rest can certainly emphasize those shadows under your eyes and even more so, accentuate the puffiness. One of the things that really causes dark circles is consuming a diet or drinks that cycle sugar and salt, sugar and salt. This may be why women tend to have puffy, dark circles during PMS, diet related. Yes, I know…but it’s true.

My response to this logic was that I should eat all sweets or all salt that day. Here’s why that won’t work, yeah, no, it won’t work =( Even something as harmless as chocolate has a great deal of BOTH salt and sugar in it. In fact, most sweets have a very high sodium content. Now, I am realistic and I believe in moderation, that is still the key! But if you begin to see darker than normal circles or puffier than usual eye area, try cutting out something you “know” is slightly evil from your diet. It won’t hurt. I promise =)

Creating your own custom formulations can not only save money, but often is much more effective!

Creating your own custom formulations can not only save money, but often is much more effective!

Topical preparations that contain Haloxyl, Caffeine, Argireline, Cucumber, Alpha Lipoic Acid, DMAE and Hyaluronic Acid (to name a few, all available in Anti-Aging at ModelSupplies) are wonderful for scavenging away the excess fluids from the eye area and doing a general cleanup beneath the skin’s surface. Combine these ingredients with a controlled diet and reasonable sleep and you will be batting your eyelashes well into the future and no matter what day of the month it is! And, by the way, these approaches also work for men!

BOO~!
