Look 15 Years Younger Without Plastic Surgery!
Scandinavian grandmother's beauty secrets revealed!
Would you like to look up to 15 years younger without plastic surgery? Well, sit back and read on, because I am going to finally reveal my long held beauty secrets, because everyone should be able to feel good about themselves at any age.
Have you ever heard about Scandinavian women having beautiful skin? Being of Scandinavian heritage I will tell you that not ALL Scandinavian women have beautiful skin. I have plenty of cousins who look many years old than they really are! Even with good genetics on their side, they are not beating the clock. However there are plenty of other women in my family who are simply ageless.
So what is the real secret of those Scandinavian beauties? Its really very simple, they stay out of the SUN!! They also avoid tanning beds like the plague. The sun will ruin your skin faster than any other thing. Both the sun and tanning beds can also give you deadly skin cancer. In fact, I recently saw a segment on TV which says that tanning beds are causing more and more skin cancer, especially in younger women. Skin cancer is not easily treated and can lead to death, so we are talking about a lot more than just beauty here.
If you feel that you must look tanned, try a spray on tan. It looks natural, and it cannot harm you.
But this is just the beginning. If you want to stay young looking, get rid of the cigarettes! Besides not being good for you, smoking is very, very aging. Just look at any smoker and you will see what I mean. Smoking if no longer considered glamorous, it is an ugly, dirty, and disgusting habit.
Watch how much you drink. Did you know that even women who are moderate drinkers have a higher incidence of breast cancer? If you choose to drink, try wine, and don't consume more than 5 oz a day.
Are you spending tons of money on beauty creams? Do you really think they are working? They probably are not worth the money you are paying for them. You won't need these expensive creams if you don't strip all the natural oils from your skin in the first place. Use plain witch hazel to cleanse your face if it feels oily. If it does not feel oily, simply use water. My great grandmother, a legendary Scandinavian beauty, gave me this bit of advice when I was 12 years old, and it has served me well. She died at the age of 98, and her skin was still beautiful! In fact she did not look much older than a woman over the age of 40.
My great grandmother also slept in a recliner! She claimed that if you slept lying down that fluids collect in your skin and you wake up all puffy eyed and bloated faced. This stretches the skin out, causing sags, bags and wrinkles. Sleeping upright avoids this.
If you simply cannot sleep upright in a recliner, then avoid eating 6 hours before bedtime to keep the bloating in your face while sleeping to a minimum. This will help, believe me, and it will also keep your weight down.
Another beauty secret that I have found is the 99 cent vitamin e stick at Wal-Mart. It looks like lipstick and is so easy to apply, just smooth on frown lines and watch them disappear! You should also use it on your lips to keep them super plump and hydrated. The more hydrated your lips, the bigger they look. This little stick is also great for under the eye. It keeps that delicate eye area firm and wrinkle free.
Another way to keep your face youthful is to take care of your teeth. If you lose teeth, it will affect the way your jaw line looks. Taking good care of your mouth helps with your over all health. Did you know that rotten teeth and gum disease can lead to heart problems and is considered to be the cause of death for many of the Egyptian pharaohs? Taking good care of your teeth will not only make you look young and beautiful, it will also help you stay healthy and live a longer, happier life.
Skin cancer is ugly and deadly, stay out of the sun!
