Every week, we post a new anti-aging tip. Stay’tuned!
ANTI-AGING TIP #1—TRY BANGS—
Hair slanted to the side and layered is anti-aging, and also tends to hide any wrinkles and crinkles, plus makes the main focus your eyes.
ANTI-AGING TIP # 2—EMBRACE THICKER BROWS—
Fill in gaps along your brows—-the best choice is a formula that is between a pencil and a powder. Another great tip is to use a little castor oil--apparently, it's believed to stimulate growth for thicker, fuller brows. (Let me know if it works for you! -Maxine)
ANTI-AGING TIP # 3—RINSE YOUR HAIR WITH COLD WATER—
Celebrity hairstylist Paul Labrecque says he “recommends that clients always finish with a cold rinse. This will lock in a good conditioning and help infuse shine.”
ANTI-AGING TIP # 4—DON'T USE FACIAL WIPES—
Facial wipes are full of chemicals and preservatives and dry out your skin. “I always recommend Warshing with the Warsh Cloth, of course! Carry one with you for emergency use during these hot and muggy days and save your skin—but whatever you do, avoid the astringency of facial wipes.” Maxine
ANTI-AGING TIP # 5—WEAR SUNGLASSES—
Squinting, frowning, and other excessive movements adds to your wrinkle factor. Always wear sunglasses when you're out of doors- or driving in daylight-and preferably not with metal frames, which reflect the sun on your face, and the larger the better. “And wear a hat for good measure (if you don't happen to be carrying a surfboard) and extra protection--and size matters! Wide brims are best.” Maxine
ANTI-AGING TIP # 6—EAT MORE VITAMIN C—
Vitamin C is a natural collagen booster— eat more fruit and veggies to naturally boost collagen to keep skin supple and firm. Bell peppers and strawberries are great choices! Also, (says Good Housekeeping) use a collagen cream, which they call the “fountain of youth.”
“And I happen to have one that's just the thing, see my skincare shop!” Maxine
ANTI-AGING TIP # 7— SHAVE!
If you or your significant other or friend has followed the trend to be more 'hairy,' it's time to consider a close shave! A recent UK study showed that men with facial hair, and that includes stubble, mustache, or a beard in any of its manifestations...were considered to look about 10 years older! As well, shaving removes dead skin cells, and the actual activity itself helps to stimulate collagen production.
Hint—“Anyone can use a collagen cream, which some have been known to call the “fountain of youth.” And I happen to have one that's perfect for anyone, see my online natural skincare shop!” Maxine
ANTI-AGING TIP # 8—USE HAND CREAM ALL THE TIME AND THEN AGAIN
People seem to be able to tell age more easily by looking at your hands--so use cream often and liberally. Keep it by the sink/every sink you use regularly. Alsobrighten dull lookinghands by exfoliating— (the Warsh Cloth is perfect for this--it exoliatesnaturally while you Warsh). If you really need a brightener... mix a little sea salt with lemon juice and gently scrub into your hands.
