Vitamin C is good for your complexion.
This is the year—
You’re probably humming a popular Beatles tune by now. It seems shocking, but this is the year it will be accurate when I sing along, “Will you still need me…when I’m 64?”
It’s no mistake that I went into the anti-aging business. This choice was an extension of how I lived my life. Always nutrition and diet conscious, always an exercise enthusiast, and makeup lover—the only business I could be in is one that's all about how to look good and feel great!
I’d never say that I still see the same woman in the mirror as when I started, nor that I always like what I see as my numbers increase. But why criticize when I have a fabulous box of tools? I like to do what works—from diet to exercise to anti-aging disciplines, And I like to l share my regime as I make the necessary changes, so here are some of my favorite things to do leading up to “when I'm 64.”
TOP ANTI-AGING AND HEALTH TIPS.
- Meditate every morning for 45-60 minutes (ongoing 24 years!)
- Exercise 3 times a week for 45 minutes with weights
- Drink Fire Water: 1 TBSP fresh lemon juice, 1 pinch cayenne pepper, 1 TBSP honey. Add 12 oz. boiling water, mix, and sip. I have two a day.
- Coffee, then breakfast of a smoothie of mixed fruit and veggies, or fresh fruit and yogurt. Often I eat fruit crumble topped with yogurt. (see recipe below!)
- Enjoy a leisurely bath in a tub of essential oils (See the Aromatherapy Beauty Guide) My favorite oils to bathe with are either Patchouli, Sandalwood, or Lavander and I always add Epsom salts and a carrier oil to the bath water.
- Of course, I always wash (Warsh!) my face with the Warsh Cloth for Her
- I give myself a daily feather treatment with my own Microcurrent MDXminiPro (designed for use at home and available here!) and also feather in my own Maxine Warsh Collagen Correction Black Label product—for 5-8 minutes. (It works wonders!)
- Then I put on the day's makeup (As I age, I need more illumination. I like Illumalift Brightener and Concealer so much I started carrying this breakthrough makeup for my clients.)
As I seek more help to keep the youthful glow, I use the best experts in all related fields of natural anti-aging and introduce them to my clients. This year I introduced Dr. Biba to add Mesotherapy to the range of services. (For when you need a little more of an anti-aging boost, and if you're in the Toronto area—try Collagen MesoTherapy Lifts). The skin loves the collagen boost and the microcurrent maintains the long-lasting effects. Dr. Biba is also offering hyaluronic fillers when necessary. So subtle and oh so helpful...never say never! I love my work.
After work, I concentrate on the favorite part of my life, my husband. I love taking care of him and we both like our evenings together. While we try to eat our largest meal at lunch time, I concentrate on dinner with a healthy imagination and think about weight control. What we eat in the evening depends on what we had for lunch and whether we’re working out the next morning. Dinner is usually light and nutritious consisting of a salad as a meal or side dish, protein, and veggies. (I like to make cauliflower pizza--stay tuned for that great and healthy recipe--coming soon!)
And there’s always room for dessert!
Recipe: Healthy Berries Plus
- Add a large amount of mixed berries to a baking dish
- Top with 2/3 cup of almond flour, 1 heaping cup of oats, 3 heaping TBSP's coconut oil, 1/3 cup of maple syrup.
- Mix this topping and coat the berries.
- Bake in a 350 oven for 30 minutes.
- Eat as a dessert and for breakfast. I often add nuts, seeds, and raisins as a topping.

Skin care from the inside out
Make conscious food choices and go for an anti-inflammatory diet (tomatoes, olive oil, green leafy veg, nuts, salmon, tuna, sardines, blueberries, cherries... check what's good and what's not). Many of the foods that make up the Mediterranean diet are also anti-inflammatory and make it, too, great for weight loss, general health, and your skin. The anti-inflammatory diet minimizes breakouts and improves skin tone.
Plus, experts say that inflammation in your body contributes to a huge range of diseases and conditions from Parkinson's to Alzheimer's, cancers, arthritis, and more. Battling these prospects while you eat is only sensible.
Make fresh veggies and fruits part of your life. Your food choices have more of an impact on how you look and feel than you might think, now and in the future. (“Good, I hope,” says Maxine!).
So aim for nine to 10 servings of fruit and veg daily. Emphasize fresh food and variety always/avoid fast food and desserts, especially those you didn't make yourself. Have your Omega-3 fatty acids from fish, some nuts (walnuts, Brazil nuts, cashews...), even dark chocolate. Also make sure you get your full fibre allowance (from 25 to 40 grams)—not only from whole grains, barley, brown rice etc., but fruit and veggie as well, from eggplant to nuts, beans, bananas and blueberries.
Another way to get the best from an anti-inflammatory diet is to spice it up. Make turmeric, ginger, cinnamon, garlic, cayenne, and even black pepper a part of your healthy body and skincare diet.
What turmeric does for you—see Marie Claire
Everything you need to know about inflammation.
What is the best way to keep your complexion fresh and buoyant? If you've been following Maxine Warsh for a while, you'll know that the key is to wash (Warsh!) your face with only water and the Warsh Cloth.
Why you should make cumin part of your diet
Cumin—found in chili and curries and many other spicy dishes—not only tastes great, it is an aid to digestion, and may help battle various diseases from diabetes to colon cancer and even the common cold. The so-called “fat-burning spice” has anti-fungal and microbial/disinfectant properties and, of course, the seeds are loaded with antioxidants like vitamin E. Cumin--in seed and powder form— is full of calcium, iron and magnesium and has long been used in traditional medicines around the world.
The spice that helps to give chilli and curries their tasty flavors can also help prevent signs of aging like sagging, brown or age spots, and wrinkles, so it's good for your skin from the inside out. It's an anti-inflammatory and helps as a prevention against cancer and other life threatening diseases such as heart and circulation problems.
If you're pre-diabetic (or worried about becoming so!) or interested in losing weight for other reasons, be sure to spice it up with cumin! Research shows that cumin seeds help to regulate blood sugar. Cumin as part of a diet may help prevent diabetes development and is useful to treat those with diabetes. It is also been shown to be helpful in weight loss, decreasing body fat, and naturally lowering cholesterol levels.
The six foods (and spices!) we've covered in this series of Great Skin Foods # 1-6 alone don’t guarantee a wonderful complexion. Nothing replaces a great skincare routine and a healthy lifestyle. But including them in your usual diet will be a great first step to healthy, glowing skin!
And the next step should be using the Warsh Cloth every day to wash (Warsh!) your face with water only to give your skin a fresh start every time you clean it. Rejuvenate with Maxine Warsh.
Why you should eat more nuts and seeds
If you eat only fish for your omega 3 fats, you may be missing out. Seeds and nuts are an excellent source and one of the best plant-based solutions for ALA Omega 3’s. Walnuts have 2.7 grams in a quarter cup… Omega-3s are great for heart health—and they can help make your skin stronger and more flexible. This means it is more resistant to sagging and wrinkles.
We tend to think of nuts and seeds as high calorie and high fat, but experts say because they contain protein, fibre, and anti-oxidants and plant stanols to control cholesterol, they definitely should be a part of a healthy diet—especially if you have diabetes (or are heading towards it).
Nuts may help you to lose weight—
Research also shows that a handful of nuts and seeds daily—full of vitamins, minerals, and healthy fats— fights inflammation and is good for your heart health, your brain(!) and your tummy. It may even lead to weight loss. This sounds counter-intuitive, but the benefits of nuts (protein, fibre etc.) in filling you up may make you eat less of unhealthy other foods. Read all about it!
Walnuts are one of my favorite snacks! Maxine

CLEAN YOUR COMPLEXION NATURALLY
To make an immediate change to help your complexion—start using The Warsh Cloth to clear away makeup and grime with water only.
We call it The Little Miracle Worker for a reason!
Number 4 on the list of Great Skin Foods is Cilantro--also known as Coriander. It's full of good things including minerals such as potassium, calcium, manganese, iron and magnesium, Vitamins A, C, B, and K and antioxidants. What's not to like?
It has antiseptic, antifungal, disinfectant, antibacterial and antioxidant properties—read the details.
These benefits make coriander/cilantro good for you inside and out. Many makeup products are full of ingredients that are bad for our skin and this includes heavy metals. Mercury can be found in skin creams. Lead is very common in lipsticks—even in name brands, according to recent FDA studies. Mercury exposure is believed to have a damaging impact on the brain, heart, kidneys, lungs, and your skin.
“Cilantro/coriander is what is known as a natural chelator—helping to draw heavy metals such as mercury and lead out of tissues. I suggest you play it safe and sprinkle cilantro into your soup or sandwich whenever you can—it may be good for your general health and also help your skin glow.” Maxine
While coriander and cilantro are the same plant, coriander seeds have a different, spicier flavor/purpose—often used in curries and stews—so they are not interchangeable (says Rachel Ray!)

Choose Watercress for Your Health
The easiest solution for a patchy and splotchy complexion (which may mean you have circulation issues) could be to eat watercress. This is appearing on more and more menus these days—it has always been a staple in the UK… and may help explain the English peaches and cream complexion.
It's also good for you inside and out--with anti-cancer and cardiovascular benefits. Watercress is an excellent source of many vitamins and minerals, particularly “bone building and strengthening Vitamin K” and Vitamin A, says The Guardian. The latter is great for eye health.
The results of a study in the Daily Mail indicated that women on watercress noticed a visible improvement in skin texture, pores, and a reduction in redness. Watercress contains more Vitamin C than oranges and four times more beta carotene and Vitamin A than apples, tomatoes, and broccoli.
Poor circulation starves your skin of oxygen and nutrients. Watercress is high in iron, helping the blood to carry more oxygen throughout the body to oxygenate your skin. So next time you're at the supermarket, pick up some watercress. Not only will you have a glowing complexion, you’ll probably enjoy yummy salads and tastier sandwiches.
p.s. Watercress is often found in salad-in-a-bag mixes, so it may already be part of your diet.
p.p.s. And after your day is done, don't forget to “Warsh” away the makeup and grime with the Warsh Cloth for Her and only water. Happy Warshing!
Number two on the list of great foods for your skin is cabbage--so get started on the cole slaw and cabbage rolls if you're not already.
Cabbage is good for your body and your complexion
Crow’s feet might actually be a sign of stress, especially if they start appearing when you're in your 20's and 30's. Because stress creates cortisol, this effectively “makes your skin break down faster, leading to premature wrinkles and sagging.” This is particularly true for the delicate tissue around your eyes.
We all know it’s important to do what we can to alleviate stress for our mental and physical health. Exercise (especially yoga), time outside relaxing, and meditation are what I always recommend— but now I’m advising to add some coleslaw to your diet!
One of the top ways to fight high cortisol levels is to enjoy foods containing vitamins A, C, and E. A good choice is cabbage and red cabbage is the best. It's said to have eight times more collagen-boosting vitamin C than green cabbage varieties.
Cabbage is extremely low in calories, under 20 per half cup of cooked cabbage--you've probably heard about the cabbage soup diet... so not only is it very nutritious but it's a great filling food to keep you on track if you're trying to keep fit or lose weight. It helps with obesity, digestion, to suppress inflammation that can lead to heart issues, is a cancer fighter, protects from radiation therapy--and much more. More on cabbage from Medical News Today.
To keep your skin looking great from the inside and out--don't forget the Warsh Cloth for Her--and if you haven't yet, try Collagen Correction in your skin care routine from our all-natural skin care collection. Collagen Correction is made from natural marine elements.
Which foods are best for your complexion?
Add seaweed to your menu
Good health is your number one asset and the most important thing you can do to maintain this is to pay attention to what you eat and drink. Luckily, most good-for-you food selections turn out to be good for you on the inside and out, for your complexion.
GREAT SKIN FOOD—# 1
Number 1 on a number of suggested lists of good-for-you-and-your-skin foods is the sea vegetable dulse, or dried seaweed, also said to be a tasty way to get rid of dark under-eye circles. (Another great reason to enjoy Sushi!) Seaweed is full of vitamin B—. This helps to draw excess fluids out of your tissues - including fluids that make your eyes puffy and give you dark circles underneath. Eat it alone or crumble it up on your soup or salad.
What is dulse and where can you find it?
This edible seaweed (which is full of fibre and protein and grows wild on the Atlantic and Pacific coasts--has also been a staple of diets in Scotland and Wales, for example, for a long time. Look for it in a good supermarket--it comes in various forms from pickled to powder to flaked. It can be added to salads, soups, pan-fried.... and will work to keep your body healthy and your skin glowing from the inside out. Take this first step to a wonderful complexion!
Improve your complexion
Stress may cause a multitude of problems for your body— even worsening conditions such as heart disease, Alzheimer's and diabetes— plus stress is bad for your skin.
Reduce stress for healthier skin
When you're too stressed, your body produces more of the cortisol hormone. Stress affects your health and well-being from muscle tension to stomach upset to sleep issues, depression, over or under-eating and lack of exercise.
Minimizing stress not only improves your day-to-day life, longevity and well-being, it improves your complexion. Too much stress increases your production of pore-clogging sebum. So if your pores are feeling the stress—with the resulting icky lumps and bumps that make you want to hide instead of getting out there and meeting people, pursuing goals, having fun, etcetera... it's a good idea to develop and maintain helpful stress-coping mechanisms.
Ways to fight stress
Try the usual prescription of sleep, healthy diet, more exercise (yoga!), relaxation downtime, old movies, a good book, a long walk, and injecting some fun into your life.
And because how you're treating yourself affects your stress levels —try a time out for mindful healthy eating. Stick to fruit and veg for a meal or two—and switch to H20 instead of sweetened drinks or alcohol... and do yourself some good. Some superfoods, such as blueberries, are good for you inside and out! The nutrients in blueberries help with splotchy skin, acne, and broken capillaries—more on this!
Staying destressed to keep your body healthy has the added benefit of helping to keep your complexion fresh and lovely.
p.s. Skin Care Tip: Washing with the WARSH Cloth with water only keeps your complexion fresh and clean and WARSHes away the makeup and oil that jams pores. Don't make the situation worse by using makeup cleansers that add to the sticky build-up and dry out your skin.
Benefits of lifestyle changes
The best anti-aging exercise might be to rewrite your grocery list—and make sure you include healthy items, at least part of the time. If you're worried about your health or showing signs of fatigue, shortness of breath, the urge to become a couch potato, etc... maybe you need a lifestyle change.
Diet and exercise are two of the top ways—and both, singly or together, can affect the possibility of contracting diseases from cancer to cardiovascular to diabetes.
Popular weight loss diets
Popular diets are always popping up and what may be a new one to you is the Keto Diet. This low carb diet allows lots of good stuff (such as protein and higher fat products) and may be the one to make the difference to you.
Best exercise choice
But whether you choose the Keto, Mediterranean, DASH, or any of the other diets, exercise should also be part of your lifestyle improvement. Regardless of if your preference is cardio workouts, yoga, pilates— you're probably aiming to improve strength, balance, flexibility, endurance, lose weight, develop muscle mass, lower stress levels —or all of the above. But for anti-aging exercise that seems to work at the cellular level, the best choice may be to add High-Intensity Interval Training to whatever else you're doing.
Many of us think of HIIT as a great way to rev up our metabolism and keep burning calories after we've stopped to get max value from our exercise time. But if you want to not only look younger but feel younger—and, they say, help your body be younger—the best value may be with high intensity, which made the older participants cells in this limited study resemble those of younger people.
Is this the fountain of youth?
High-intensity training could be the fountain of youth. Bursts of moderate and high-intensity training exercise seemed to reduce “many age-related differences in elderly participants' mitochondria”—see ABC Report.
The Mayo Clinic study showed that HIIT is great for “reversing the declining ability of our cells to generate energy,” according to the New Scientist. Declining mitochondria may aggravate fatigue and contribute to developing diabetes. HIIT subjects also saw surges in heart, lung, and circulation health.
You don't have to run to boost your exercise levels—depending on your fitness level you may want to look at indoor rowing, the elliptical trainer, water running, or indoor cycling. Whatever you do, read all about it first and be sure to check with your doctor—then start your anti-aging regime from the inside out!
“I offer the same advice to men as I do for women,” says skin care expert Maxine Warsh. “Treat yourself with goodness from the inside out and don't 'wear out' your skin by using chemicals and cleansers that overdry. Shaving creams also overdry and they are full of chemicals—so that's an excellent reason to use water only as part of your face cleaning routine. Give your face a good wash (WARSH!) before and after shaving and use the Warsh Cloth for Men (of course).
Reenergize your face
“Even plain old soap dries your face out—and it ages your skin. Add to this the effects of shaving and... wow. The deck is stacked. So this is why my best suggestion is to use only water for a clean fresh face! Use plain H2O and the WARSH Cloth for Men before and after your shave—and last thing at night or whenever you start to feel grimy. It will clean you up fast without weakening your skin and you'll not only look great but feel great.”
Diet tips for men's skin
Other advice that's applicable to helping your skin from the inside out is to eat the best diet you can. “I don't mean 16-ounce steaks or recommend carb-happy plates every day. Do what your mom probably told you to when you were at her kitchen table, and overdose on fruit and veg—as many as you can, as multicoloured as you can, and whenever you can.” If your family or partner isn't already on some variation of the Mediterranean or Dash diet—do it quick. Not only does it benefit overall body health from digestion to circulation and helps everyone fight diseases including cancers, but skin health and feel improves. And it gives tone to the way you look—making skin vibrant and helping it and you to feel and stay youthful.
How does The Warsh Cloth work?
The WARSH Cloth exfoliates to keep skin fresh while you wash (WARSH!), and it's anti-bacterial, plus it's environmentally-friendly. You can keep reusing it after washing (WARSHing it) for up to three months. It's slightly larger than the standard WARSH Cloth.
There's a reason people call this “The Little Miracle Worker.” Your face will think it has discovered a miracle—you'll see and feel a difference when you can scrub away grime and pore-cloggers with the WARSH Cloth for Men and only water.
Before Botox there was makeup!
Before Botox and other wonder injectables, all we had was makeup to disguise our skin flaws and the aging process.
Then we had the challenge of finding the makeup that suited our specific needs. We all know that process!
Well, I finally found it and I'm over the moon to launch with my products what I believe to be the BEST makeup, primer, and illuminating products I have ever experienced...Illumalift and Boxx Cosmetics have satisfied all the needs all skin types could ask for PLUS it's good for your skin with its high level of skin caring ingredients.

WORK & LIFE BALANCE
SHORTEN YOUR TO DO LIST
Continuously adding more items to our To Do lists isn't the route to well being. You don't have to follow through on every idle plan or half-baked project—you don't have to learn French or how to skydive—unless you really want to. Follow Arianna's Huffington's advice in The Third Metric: assess your tasks and then drop them if they're not that important. This frees time and leaves more energy for what is most important to you. This includes family, friends, and following your own muse. Do you need creative time? Sports time? More nap time? Take it. You can say no.
The key word here is YOU. We don't like to think of ourselves as quitters. So we go on and on, sticking to tasks long after we've lost motivation. Or we may be working so much overtime that life has lost its pleasure. Many of us forget that “life is not a dress rehearsal.” A weekend spent staring at your iPad instead of with your friends or family—is still a weekend that's gone forever.
Saying no should be enough when other people press--or your silent worrier self does. Stop making excuses or thinking up reasons. No is sufficient. This is another take home from Arianna Huffington: NO is a sentence. Women tend to say, “No, because...” Men rarely do. However high we may have advanced career-wise, most of us still say, “No, because..., as in, No, I can't finish that project at home tonight because my laptop is on the fritz plus all four kids have flu...” Try just saying no.
Work smarter instead of harder or longer or more—this may be the best route to the top for women, says Arianna H.
On Changing Direction
“I was very interested by the idea that dropping a project can be the way forward,” says skin care expert Maxine Warsh. “I've been guilty of letting distractions get in the way of what I really want to do. You don't have to batter your brains out trying to finish or learn something you no longer have time or need for—simply stop doing it. I'm so aware of the value of being aware and incorporating all the elements that help you live a better life, feel better and, of course, look better.... sometimes, it's simply making the right choices (big and small!) that plays the key role in your well-being.”
Work for you instead of your boss: quick training on a light budget from Maxine Warsh to become an anti-aging practitioner!

Is there an “anti-aging healthy skin” diet?
These great-for-you anytime foods are what the experts recommend for hydrating from the inside out. Mostly, the foods that are on the good-for-you list for health also help your skin AND make a great anti-aging diet. The list includes salmon, avocado, olive oil, spinach and leafy greens, nuts/seeds, fruit (of course!) and eggs. For more on why you should eat anti-aging foods: StyleList.
Other foods that should be on your menu that are good for your skin (and your hair!), making you look and feel fit and healthier from the inside out are dark chocolate, walnuts, the ever-popular spinach, lentils, flax and chia seeds, and berries. According to The Huffington Post, berries “are loaded with anti-inflammatory agents and vitamins that help protect you from premature aging.” They are also great at battling illnesses and packed with Vitamin C, which not only keeps skin firm but is used by your body to form collagen.
Chocolate (or raw cacao) has flavonoids to fight free radicals and protect your skin from UV damage and wrinkles and fine lines.
For facts you might not know about berries--such as if bananas, kiwi fruit, and lychees are classed as berries, and which are the most beneficial... Elderberries is #1, followed by blackberries, and ... tomatoes? Read up.
Causes of wrinkles and aging
A BBC report on eating your way to fabulous skin summarizes the main causes of wrinkles and skin aging and pinpoints damage from the sun, strong soaps, chemicals, and poor nutrition as the main culprits, and recommends antioxidant rich fruit and veg with beta carotene, vitamins C and E, zinc and selenium.
(Using the Warsh Cloth with water only to clean your complexion eliminates two of those factors immediately!)
To fight acne, cutting back on processed/junk foods and hydrogenated and saturated fats is recommended, says the BBC. Try to eat more selenium-rich foods such as Brazil and walnuts, cashews, fresh tuna, sunflower seeds, and wholemeal bread. More.
“I agree,” says Maxine, “and washing with the Warsh Cloth (we also have one for acne) and only water will, of course, also help to fight a variety of skin problems—from aging to acne.”
INNOVATIVE ANTI-AGING TREATMENT
By the time you’re 25, the ATP that fuels muscles is starting to diminish. Muscles begin to lose tone and skin starts to sag—and that means all over. Your face needs help inside and out starting about now if you want to keep looking your best—so make sure you use lots of water—inside and out—drink it and also use only water to wash (WARSH!) your face. This means not using chemical cleansers that will dry your skin. After you've washed away the day's grime and makeup (with a WARSH Cloth, of course), don't forget to moisturize, and always with a preservative-free, natural cream.
“If you're starting to notice wrinkles, crinkles, and perhaps even sags (!) I always recommend cosmetic microcurrent, which I've specialized in for over a decade.
OVER 12,000 MAXINE WARSH clients rely on Cosmetic Microcurrent —commonly known as The Electric Face Lift— to look great (and feel marvelous!). But now there’s an innovative expansion I'm making available to take it up a notch.
Available with the Microcurrent MAX Lift and Quick Lift, I'm offering the popular European clinical Meso MAX Lift.
This innovative treatment combines the skin plumping benefits of Microcurrent with the popular European clinical treatment of Mesotherapy.
TONING & TIGHTENING
Non-surgical and minimally invasive, Mesotherapy unites what is sometimes called facial acupuncture to the mesoderm with the anti-wrinkle and toning/tightening benefits of HA or Hyaluronic Acid.
The result is that the skin hydrates from the inside out, for elasticity and to fill, firm, and smooth.
● For naturally beautiful, plump and resilient skin— choose the Microcurrent MAX Lift treatment.
● For the targeted benefits of non-allergenic and minimally invasive filler, choose the Meso Max Lift, which unites Microcurrent and Mesotherapy.
Give me a call to discuss--and to make an appointment for a consultation with the medical practitioner on Friday, for an in-office treatment. If you'd like to invest in your own microcurrent treatment for a DIY treatment wherever you are—let me know. Our 15th anniversary sale is now on!

Anti-aging tips for your skin—
Don't let the weather age you. Some days it feels like it's wrinkling and crinkling--we all know that summer sunshine is not great for your skin but neither is a hot and dry office or winterized home (fall isn't far away!). There are simple ways to take care of your skin from the inside out.
Water, water, water
Drink lots and lots of liquid—preferably water. Everyone still recommends 8 glasses a day if you can do it. Tea and other liquids help, too!
You've probably noticed that your skin feels more springy when there's more humidity. This doesn't mean you can relax. Always wear a high SPF sunscreen outside in the summer and, even if you're in a damp climate, still moisturize often.
Sun damage when driving
Some people don't know that skin can still suffer sun damage through glass--in front of windows or when you're driving in winter and summer—so use an SPF cream on all exposed skin. When you're outside, wear a hat whenever you can.
In the winter, think humidifier. Even a small unit in the bedroom will help you to avoid the long-term effects of weather and dryness on your skin.
The best anti-aging tip is to exercise. Being on the go more often than you're sitting helps to make sure all your cells and functions are in motion. Nowadays experts recommend never stay sitting longer than an hour at a time but many of the latest studies say no longer than 10 minutes--even if you just stand up and wriggle. Even a short stretch period (the 7th inning stretch) serves an excellent purpose to keep your muscles active and functioning and blood flowing.
So exercise, exercise, and exercise to battle aging— get up off the couch or your chair often to get a drink of water. Take a peek outside or talk about the weather. Chat with your colleagues or neighbors—any excuse to get up and move
Maintaining activity is a disease fighter—from cancers to cardiovascular. And research shows that social activity of any kind may help prevent dementia and with depression. The combination of exercise and social interaction is excellent—so keep moving and start talking for anti-aging benefits—to your body, skin, and mental condition.
How to moisturize for anti-aging
Use mucho moisturizers—on your face and your body. Slather it on while you're still damp dry—just blot your skin lightly with a towel and then use your lotions and potions.
It's a good idea to keep a body cream or moisturizer next to the shower or bath, so you can give your skin a drink each and every time you emerge. I recommend my all-natural epiCARE™ range of skincare products (of course!).
Also, don't forget to exfoliate regularly—this deep cleanses your skin and makes it more receptive to moisturizers.
Hint— “This is another excellent reason to use the WARSH Cloth twice daily for a healthy complexion—because it's a natural exfoliant. Not only will it clean your skin of makeup and grime. All you need is water for a fresh, receptive skin and cleaning with only water means you're not adding cleanser or soap chemicals that dry out your face. Your complexion will thank you for it... and so will the planet.”
Exercise and aging
Exercise is good for us—but too much of the wrong type can have serious and long term repercussions. Most of us know that jogging is hard on the knees and lower joints (for starters). This is especially important to remember if you want to stay active at every age. Too much standing and walking can contribute to heel spurs and other issues. Also try to avoid sit-ups. Harvard Medical School says that, for a harder core, we should skip sit-ups and crunches, which can harm your back. Stick to the plank.
Check out exercises to avoid, which includes crunches (yeah!), upright rows, and even the seated hip-abductor machine. These trainer favorites are not always as good for us as we like to believe.
Expensive sports injuries
Recouping from sports injuries can not only be painful but expensive and the physio you may need can lead to further problems. A New Zealand study showed that, over a five-year reporting period of a group of insurance claimants receiving physiotherapy reported in the Journal of Orthopaedic & Sports Physical Injury, claims attributed to exercise were related to physiotherapy in 31.5% of cases and to manual therapy in 26.5% of cases. Oops.
So choose your physiotherapist well, on the recommendation of a doctor preferably, and check their professional affiliations.

How can you rejuvenate your complexion?
Can you see a loss of tone in your complexion?
If you're noticing a double chin or saggy neck, the best thing to do asap is start exercising. The experts say that another surprising method that seems to work to ward off a double chin is to chew gum... the muscle action works to tighten sagging muscles.
Remedial for skin sun damage
If you're starting to see signs of wrinkles (they can show up anywhere or everywhere') or a saggy skin on your neck and decolleté areas, it's never too late to try some toning and tightening exercise.
Treatment for a saggy neck
If you're interested in treatment to plump up those fine lines and give you a new fresh loo, I (of course!) recommend the cosmetic micro current “Electric Face Lift”. ... I offer this to Toronto customers or you can purchase my DIY micro current unit.
Non-invasive Microcurrent Lifts are perfect to refresh and plump skin if you want to blur the wrinkles. Do it at home (with Maxine Warsh equipment!) or make an appointment if you're near Toronto to try it out.
Read the fine print before trying lasers, says Fox personality
Many people may be inclined to try different approaches such as some of the new laser treatments and often think there is no downside--if it's available, it must be approved and safe. But this isn't always the case and there can be issues with new anti-aging skin treatments. Janice Dean of Fox TV decided to look into what she could do to improve the look of her neck—she was 46 and in front of the cameras and, for women, however much we might wish it wasn't so—a youthful and fresh appearance does still seem to matter in the public perception. Janice Dean recounts what happened when she forgot to read the fine print and ended up with a face “puffed out like a chipmunk” and other issues that kept her away from work and the camera.
“This is why I like microcurrent so much--it's non-invasive and has no side effects except improvement. Whether you do it yourself with my equipment or in my office you can trust the treatment not to leave you hiding from the world, with the glow and confidence to get out there and enjoy it!” Maxine
p.s. I also offer training and professional-standard micro current equipment if you'd like to become an anti-aging specialist yourself and go into business. It's one of the least pricey and fastest ways I know to start your own beauty business... and begin to create a great life for yourself!
