This week we have discussed how to freshen your looks for summer and continued a discussion of how Frenchwomen keep constantly updated and refreshed. So, it is perfect that I introduce you to another excellent book, 7 YEARS YOUNGER INSTANT MAKEOVERS!
This book is packed (and I mean packed) with information for us all to look and feel our best...younger and refreshed. It includes advice and tips on all our concerns from the turkey neck, to lack of sleep, the flabby middle, lip lines, and to those pesky dark circles. I have learned a lot so far, and I am still reading and learning.
Did you know that women look oldest at 3:30 P.M. every day? "That's when stress levels peak and energy plummets,leaving skin dry, ruddy and dull." The recommendation...."every afternoon pat lotion on your cheeks and under you eyes." I am going to start carrying it with me because this makes sense to me.
I always wondered about cucumbers. Do they really help on eyes or is it just for show? The book hails them as an assistant for a baggy eyes lift. "Place cucumber slices in the freezer before you get in the shower. After your shower, lie down and with your head propped up on two pillows, place cold cucumbers on your eyes. The cold closes down the blood vessels and gives temporary relief." So, I decided to try it. The first time, I cut the slices too thick and they kept falling off my face. But, the second time with thinner slices, it worked and was refreshing and relaxing as well as giving the eye a smaller appearance! Then I cut some for a pitcher of healthy, summer water.....
The book is full of tips, some specific products, research... and worth the purchase. (did you know a slightly brighter lipstick detracts from dark circles under the eyes) You can tell I believe my tired eyes need a makeover!
I am certain I will share more discoveries later. But, for now, I hope you can add this to summer reading. Just place an order HERE.
