Blog readers are just the best and sweetest around! I cannot tell you, how much your sweet comments meant to me about how I look at 59! I will say that in the last four weeks, I have received the most compliments I can remember getting in a long time about my looks. The birthday posts led to a few emails asking me how I do it….how I look younger than 59!
Well, I am sure there are days that I do not look younger, but it pleases me no end that some of you think I do. This summer has been about getting me to look healthy (and of course, feel healthy). In answer to your questions, I will share with you some of my personal techniques which I have been true to this summer. These are products and advice I actually use… and I am not plugging or supporting anything for any other reason other than I use them….every day! I am going to divide this into two posts…maybe three!
#1 The Sun
Yes, the very thing that is said to age us has helped me! I was told last year that I had a serious Vitamin D deficiency and I would need to not only take a supplement, but also get out in the sun more. The advice I was given was to get out into the sun at least 15 minutes for three times a week and that would be sufficient. At the end of the school year I was as white as vanilla ice cream and the pasty face was looking older. Fifteen minutes for three times a week has been perfect to put a toasty, healthy glow on my skin…the healthy way.
#2 Juice Plus
For months now, my husband and I have tried various food supplements in an attempt to change some bad reads in the blood tests. Nothing has really made a difference. So, we are trying JUICE PLUS, vegetable and fruit supplements. We are impressed with the studies and research we have read, so we began Juice Plus one month ago. I will say that the most significant difference I notice right now is that I am just not as hungry as I used to be. Also, I have more energy and my complexion looks great. I will update you on this occasionally and let you know how it is going. For right now, I am really glad we are doing this.
|Other habits I have formed for every day: I only drink water, green tea, others teas, and coffee!|
#3 The Cleansing Machine
At the beginning of summer, my husband and I purchased the OLAY PRO-X ADVANCED CLEANSING SYSTEM and we both love it! We use it in the evenings and he uses it in the mornings before he shaves. I really think our complexions are brighter and there are far less wrinkles to look at in the mirror! It is similar to the Clarisonic Machine…only cheaper!
That gets us started! I will tell you about my face serums and the most amazing EYE TIGHTNER EVER in tomorrow’s post!
Have a wonderful Thursday and make sure you visit the other bloggers from KATIE'S FAVORITE THINGS BLOG HOP!!
