The secrets to looking younger when we are older begins when we are young. It begins with beginning a pattern of;
Not going to sleep before caring for your face and skin. This include removing all make up from your face and a weekly gentle cleanse.
Remember, your entire body should be just as important as your face. While washing the body daily under shower is good, soaking baths are even better. If not, over the years you will begin to experience skin shading.
However we wash ourselves, let us always have a long handle brush handy. Why? We can reach those hard to reach areas of the back.
Our hair is also important and while we tend to lose some of its luster as we age, this too can be controlled.
The hair needs to breathe. So for those who wear wigs, you may not want to do so all the time, not if you are looking forward to full, flowing healthy hair.
While there are people who shampoo their hair everyday of the week, my recommendation is not to shampoo more than four or five times weekly.
Before shampooing, manipulate with your fingers your scalp gently from back to front – if you are unable to do this yourself get someone to help. If it is done correctly you should feel relaxed. However, scalp manipulations shifts into gear hear growth. If the scalp is not all right, hair growth will be at best, slow.
Our teeth are among another of our blessings. What’s the use if everything else is looking and feeling awesome when tooth care is lacking?
In this day and age everyone is looking at our teeth and they are also looking at how white they are, among other things.
Let us not see our dentists once in a while. At the very least we should be having periodical visits. One thing that many of us may not always think about is teeth cleaning. Your dentist may also recommend monthly cleanings.
The cost of teeth cleaning can be minimal, from $60.00 to $150.00 depending on your dentist. The next thing to think about is teeth whitening and this varies in cost.
Let us begin a ritual of taking care of ourselves, for goodness sakes. We tend to take care of everyone else but ourselves.
One area of our lives often seems to collide with our busy schedule, and that’s rest. Remember, taking time for quality rest is an essential part of our daily lives. Take time for self is not always spending time awake but spending time asleep. Our bodies are rejuvenated when we rest. (We will go into more of this at a later date.)

Skin Care for Eyes
The very first thing you should remember when using eye creams, please do not plaster it into your eyes – eye lids and eye lashes. Before placing any creams upon your skin you should do a skin test. Place a little bit at or near the area of concern and leave it there for a few minutes as many may be allergic to the various compounds of any product.
Even if your skin is not allergic to the product. If you rub it into your delicate eyes you will have problems.
Note here also; I am not a doctor and cannot give you medical advise. For any medical concerns, call your doctor. Should you be having an emergency please call your local medical facility.
We have to be very careful about what we put into the eyes and be very careful not to apply Skin Care Eye Creams directly into the eyes. Having said that, my recommendation for a wonderful Eye Cream is;
Precision Ultra Correction Eye Cream by Chanel
it's not cheap,
But it’s good!
My experience with this product; Three years ago I noticed the lines around my eyes. The next thing was the fact that the skin around my eyes was not as firm as it used to be. I was on a mission to find a product to correct these problems and find it, I did with Precision Ultra Correction Eye Cream.
I must state here, that whatever your budget you simply cannot be without this eye cream. Want those big bright looking eyes again? This product does actually help.
For God’s sake, do not plaster it in your eyes. It does not belong there!

Skin Care Products That Really Work!
First and foremost you should know that I do not believe in plastic surgery unless it is under rare cases and necessary to promote health. I really do not believe in allowing anyone to put a knife to my face. I believe that our Almighty has given us many products to use that can help us in many ways and many scientists are discovering many of those products to help us heal in many ways.
Lets begin with the basics first. That which is a must for women before you apply make up – and for men good habits to maintain. A good skin cleanser is difficult to find, an excellent skin cleanser is even harder to find. So before you go shopping for a skin cleanser and wasting a lot of money on the wrong ones. Let me tell you about the most excellent one;
Cost around $12.00 per bottle.
The story behind this for me.
The year 2010 was an especially brutal time for me.
During this year, I had actually neglected my body, my skin and my hair. Since I work at home its easy for this to happen if one is not careful. So, for those of you working at home I suggest that you get up a little earlier and groom yourselves!
One of the first thing I noticed was my skin seem to be looser than it had been in the past. So I asked my daughter Stacy to go to the drug store and find me a good Garnier product – which was my Christmas gift to myself.
One good thing to own is a Magnifying Mirror – you are able to see the true make-up of your bareskin. Are you developing pores, lines and is your face sagging? You can see it there. Then go after correcting the problems.
I can safely say I was blown away by this product Garnier Nutritionist Skin Renew Resurfacing 3-Way Cleanser from the very first time I used it.
Remember, my skin had began to sag. I was noticing the laugh lines more pronounced. I was astonished as I was first applying this cleanser.
The first thing I noticed was how solid it felt. I also noticed the stark whiteness of the cream against my olive tone skin. What really got my attention was that it It felt like the protective cleansing mask was adding a tender sensation to my skin. The results was absolutely astounding! Upon removing the mask, I examined my skin to find that, it not only cleansed but it also lifted and the laugh lines were totally reduced!
Wow! Even my family could see the instant drastic results. It was like a miracle. Then I applied the
GarnierUltra-Lift Pro Gravity Defying Cream
Cost around $25.00
I thought I was blown away before with the cleansing cream, but before my very eyes as I applied this Ultra-Lift Pro Gravity Defying Cream, I watched as at least ten years was removed from my face!
Though I suggest you follow the instructions of use, I must say here that I have missed a couple of days actually using this product and I did NOT suddenly become ten years older. It appears to be working even at times I am not actually wearing the cream.
Note; I do not suggest anyone cleanse more than once per week.
Remember, you can have the hair all done to perfection, but if the skin is not right it will be very difficult to pull it all together.
This year I will celebrate my 60th. I decided long ago that I would fight looking older, no matter what age I find myself. But even this begins early in life. What I did in my youth.
I was always very particular about my face and skin thereof.
Every two weeks I would have an egg-white cleansing. Once each week I would do a Honey cleansing.(Please send me an email if you need to know more on these.)
What I was really doing was setting myself up to look exactly how I look today, but having done that I still have to be vigilant about the keeping up at least the cleansing of dead skin so renewal can take place.
