Ok guys, we’re all in this together… no one wants to get old, or look it at least! We’re all on that elusive quest to stop the clock.
So here’s your opportunity to spill the beans, share your secrets so we can all look out for each other when we’re the most youthful looking gals in the nursing home. Here are a few of my tips. Would love to hear yours:
Rosehip oil, rosehip oil, rosehip oil: I use it every night after I cleanse to keep my skin moisturised, especially under my eyes. I also swear by it to help heal left over acne blemishes at super speed and avoid ghastly scarring.
Dr Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Peel Pads.: I wipe over my skin every day and it’s definitely feeling smoother and helping with fine lines that have started to appear in the last couple of years.
Bone broth.: Ok, I know some of you might get grossed out by this one, it can sound like a weird one and obviously a no go for vegetarians but high quality grassfed and organic bones from chicken and beef is known to have one of the highest sources of minerals and collagen! I often make my own by throwing a bunch of bones in a crock pot with some veggies, garlic and onions and slow cooking for 24 hours and throw it in soups or stews as often as I can and freeze the rest. Alternatively you can get the powdered versions at health food stores and mix in where necessary. People ALWAYS complement me on how good my skin looks when I do this on the regular.
Cosmetic Acupuncture.: I’m all about natural if possible, botox isn’t really my thing… so this has been my alternative. Acupuncture when done by a specialised cosmetic acupuncturist can promote blood flow and collagen production in your skin and can be very useful around the face when placed in problem areas and creases. It helps lift, tone and smooth lines. It’s not cheap but after a few regular sessions I definitely saw the difference!
