Take the Madness Out of Your Skin Care Regimen
~ Protect, Restore and Nourish! ~
Put the three simple secrets of effective anti-aging skin care to work for your skin.
Protect: The single best strategy to keep your skin as young looking as possible is to protect it from damage.
Over time, it is sun damage that takes the worst toll on skin. Skin damage is cumulative, literally destroying the skin at little at a time over the course of decades! It is important to faithfully protect your skin by using sun screening products with both UVA and UBA protection. The sooner you start the better!
Restore: It is simply impossible to escape all the effects of aging although you can slow the process considerably with a proactive approach to caring for your skin. Providing your skin with treatments that contain age fighting antioxidants is a good start. Select products that include active anti-aging ingredients rich in antioxidants such as vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E, Co-Q10, green tea, and copper peptides.
Nourish: Supplying the skin with a range of essential nutrients serves to "feed" your skin a balanced array of vitamins and minerals which provides your skin the resources it needs to continue to look its very best.
Choosing skin care treatments loaded with valuable active anti-aging ingredients ensures that skin will receive the nutrients it needs to remain healthier and younger looking.
And don't forget that an anti-aging lifestyle that includes a healthy well-balanced diet, plenty of exercise, and at least 7 to 8 hours of "beauty" sleep each night goes a long way to promote younger looking skin as well!

Upside Down Skin Care
Have you ever wondered what you will look like as you age?
Try this trick. . .
Sit down and place a mirror on your lap. Position your face in a horizontal position directly above the mirror. Now tip yourself forward and look into the mirror upside down. Your reflection will give you a clear indication on how your face will appear as it ages.
Scary, huh? Doesn't your image give you the incentive to take a proactive approach and begin a skin rejuvenation regime sooner rather than later?
Now hold a mirror horizontally above your face and look upwards into the mirror. You'll now see how much younger you could look by addressing your aging skin issues. Some also say that the reflection of yourself as you look upwards into the mirror is what you would look like if you had a facelift.

It's About Thyme
When used in natural skin care recipes, the herb thyme has antiseptic and antibacterial properties along with several anti-aging attributes. Herbal remedies use thyme as a main ingredient to treat sores and inflammation.
Thyme is also an excellent home remedy in treating acne. The herb has a rich history of medicinal uses in treating a variety of ailments.
For a reviving and cleansing skin care treatment mash thyme leaves, add a sprinkle of cornstarch, then drizzle in enough cider vinegar to form into a thin paste.
Pat the mixture on the face and let set for 10 to 15 minutes. Rinse well with warm water. Save any unused portion in refrigerator for 3 to 4 days.

~ Facial Rejuvenation Product Review ~
Dottie submitted her product review of the dermaseptic devise. She uses the devise to treat cold sores before they start to erupt. Dottie begins using the dermaseptic devise on the cold sore the moment she begins to feel that first tell-tale tingling sensation so she can cure the infection right from the start.
This prevents the cold sore from developing enough to break through the surface of the skin. Read Dottie's review here: Dermaseptic Device
