Every day, millions of women around the world look in the mirror and wonder; “How can I slow-down or reverse the visible signs of my aging skin?” They secretly wonder if anything can be done to rejuvenate “old-looking” skin, without risky surgery, questionable drugs or expensive cosmetics?
The truth is, there is something that can be done to bring back that ‘youthful’ look and feel.
But you won’t hear about this “in the mainstream” – because there isn’t big money to be made when women learn this. In fact – this saves women lots of money, frustration and time.
This powerful secret is revealed in the…
5 keys to reversing the signs of aging:
Key # 1: Cut-Down on Toxic Cosmetics That Suffocate Your Skin
Every layer of make-up you apply to your face is another layer that suffocates your skin’s natural ability to breathe; from the inside – out. That suffocating layer not only blocks your skin’s ability to release waste products – but it actually seals them in. Here’s how:
Chemically laden foundation, concealer and color cosmetics cause our pores to become clogged and blocked. This stops the skin from releasing toxins, sweat, oils and bacteria – resulting in progressive build-up of these unfriendly elements – leading to irritation, inflammation, discoloration and wrinkling.
And what happens next?
We use more and more skincare products to try “fixing” those visible problems – wasting hundreds of dollars, month after month.
The vicious cycle not only continues – but it gets even worse because there are ingredients, preservatives and chemicals in the products most women use that make the irritation, inflammation, discoloration and wrinkling even more severe.
Fortunately, there’s a natural, 3-step process that reverses this frustrating cycle.
But first we need to look at Key #2…
Key # 2: Stop Eating Hidden “Skin-Killers”
Do you ever stop to consider what you’re about to eat – and what harmful impact that food has on the aging of your skin?
Most people never take the time to think this through – and they wonder why their skin always looks horrible.
Concentrated sugars, genetically modified oils, dough-conditioners, artificial sweeteners, chemical preservatives, anti-caking agents, the list of avoidable ingredients goes on – ALL at the expense of your natural beauty.
These ingredients – which make foods cheaper to manufacture, and more profitable for the companies who make them – can have damaging effects on our outer skin layers – by way of effecting women internally, at the hormonal levels.
We already know how delicate the female hormone system is. But when we introduce these foreign elements into our physiological ecosystem – they can impact female hormone regulation in punishing ways – resulting in unwanted “signs” of early aging on the outer layers of our skin – especially the face.
There’s a simple way to flip this food equation around, so you get the opposite effect – the “ageless beauty effect”.
Key # 3 brings you closer to it:
Key # 3: Stop Risking Your Beauty and Health with “Surgical Alternatives”
Touted as “Less Invasive” there is a class of injectables which are advertised as wrinkle erasers, cheek lifters and lip volumizers. Minimal downtime and fast results are some of the buzzwords used to hook desperate women.
But what we have to dig deep for are the warnings and associated risks in the fine-print. It’s up to the patient to search for the reports of adverse effects, permanent disfigurement or even death.
The reality is – these are foreign chemical agents injected into the skin to get a specific response – primarily a temporary change in the structural appearance of the face – REGARDLESS of short and long term risks.
And even though this group of treatments are relatively new – we are now starting to see the backlash trickling down from the celebrities who were the first to afford these newer options.
For example, Gwyneth Paltrow was quoted in a NY Post article; “I won’t do Botox again, because I looked crazy. I looked like Joan Rivers!”
And Nicole Kidman, who also openly admitted to the injections, was quoted in that same article; “I did try Botox, unfortunately, but I got out of it and now I can finally move my face again.”
Think about this. The youthful firmness of your face is due to it’s underlying muscular layer. If you “freeze” a muscle with Botox it weakens and atrophies, creating premature sagging (around the eyes, cheeks and mouth). We are already seeing evidence of this in women who’ve been using Botox for years and the deeper, long term effects are frightening.
But here’s a fact that can’t be denied. The female face has over 42 individual muscles. And just like any other muscle in the body – if we stimulate them with some unique, but gentle, movements – we can get those little muscles more toned, shapely and lifted. Without the high cost – and without the dangerous risk to your body and health.
And guess what this natural approach does to the look and complexion of your beautiful face?
Read on and I’ll show you what it does.
Key # 4: Detox and ‘Reset’ Your Skin Production Layer from the Inside
The skin’s cellular regeneration cycle is 28 days.
This means – the skin you see in the mirror today started to be formed just 28 days ago inside the deeper stratum basale layer of the epidermis.
Most people inaccurately refer to this as skin sloughing. However, the precise term is Epidermal Desquamation.
The critical key here, regardless of what we call it – is that we can tap into this ongoing, 28-day cycle to enhance and improve the quality of our skin’s self-renewal power.
How do we do this?
Answer: We fuel the skin’s production process, from the inside, with powerful, youth-inducing foods and nutrients. This is the only way to truly nourish the skin – regardless of the sales messages that try to make you think you can nourish it at the surface level with expensive, cleverly-named, topical products.
Many women, realize after the fact – that when they start making certain, simple changes in eating habits, their skin quickly begins to regain its youthful appearance. They no longer eat certain foods or snacks which have negative effects on the skin production process and they’ve replaced them with the proper foods our bodies need in order to thrive – on all levels.
It’s the opposite effect of what poor choices of lifestyle habits do to one’s skin. For example, if you look at people who smoke, drink excessive amounts of alcohol and eat foods which lack nutritional value – they look far older than they actually are, because they are starving their body of what it needs – and filling it with damaging toxins that are accelerating aging….dramatically.
By doing the opposite, that is – eating foods high in essential skin nutrients, you can turn back your biological beauty clock in as little as a few weeks.
This gives a whole new meaning to the phrase inner-beauty.
But it gets even better.
Key # 5: Feed Your Skin With Youth-Inducing Foods & Nutrients
Hormones get a bad rap for being the cause of so many problems for women.
But the reality is there are certain choices and actions we can make – that can help us trigger extremely positive hormonal shifts – that actually start to reverse some of the problems – to the extent that some women “can’t even believe the changes they are seeing in the mirror.”
This isn’t airy-fairy thinking or hair-salon mythology – this is actual proven biological science – that just doesn’t get enough media attention. And that’s why I’m highlighting it here, today.
Estrogen, progesterone and testosterone are 3 of the primary hormones involved in the skin regeneration process mentioned above. And more importantly – they are responsible for the visual and structural integrity of the skin. They directly affect how our skin looks and feels. That is how important they are to the quality and attractiveness of your skin. And this is why it is so important to balance and optimize them from the inside, through the power of beauty-enhancing nutrition.
When your body has an abundant supply of these vital hormonal building blocks, optimal homeostatic balance is restored, naturally “healing” the underlying root-cause of common skin problems – and reversing the visible signs of aging.
Not only is this simple – but it’s also extremely enjoyable once you get a taste of it…..especially once you discover the most important secret of all…..Key #6
Key # 6: BONUS Tip – Give Yourself a Natural 5-Minute Face-Lift
The simple but powerful secret is based on the health and wellness methods of Eastern healing practitioners.
While still new to Western science – this technique has been practiced for thousands of years in the East and is said to hold the key to longevity & vibrant aging. The essence of this method is based on tapping into the body’s Meridian System to increase blood flow, enhance lymph activity and invigorate neuro-muscular function.
By massaging your face and neck using gentle Shiatsu finger-strokes you cause 3 powerful things to happen:
A – you help deliver all the new anti-aging nutrients in your blood-stream – directly into all the skin cells that are craving them.
B – you release toxins out of the cells (skin, muscles, fat, etc.), by lymphatic stimulation (it’s the accumulation of toxins that many scientists believe are the number one cause of aging).
C – you stimulate the muscles to become fuller and more ‘toned’ by enhancing neural activity, thus ‘lifting’ the sagging areas of our face, making our skin smoother and firmer.
Most women are surprised to report additional benefits of the personal ‘Shiatsu Facial Massage Method’, that go way beyond a more beautiful face and younger complexion. These other key benefits include:
• Reduced stress
• Heightened levels of emotional well-being
• Increased self-confidence and self-image
