The Fountain of Youth , by Peter Kelder

I suggest anyone that is interested in longevity and committed to looking good, pick up this book. It consists of five simple exercises that one can do in less than 10 minutes a day that the author feels is the secret to the fountain of youth. Each exercise is designed to stimulate the thymus and keep your Chackras aligned. The Chakras are the seven centers of the body long considered to be source of energy for psychic and spiritual power. I have been doing them for at least ten years and can attest to their effectiveness.

Wrinkles

Since when did we become so anti wrinkles? Wrinkles don’t deserve all the bad press they get! They are hard-earned. The lines speak of a life well-lived; the crevices of a smile that has chosen to stick around. Those crinkly squint lines around your eyes are evidence you have enjoyed many a sunny day.
Wrinkles are an expression of a lifetime of emotion, wisdom and joy! And while our society may see them as flaws to be eradicated, we should embrace them because being true to who you are is the first step to being truly healthy.

Hair loss or Thinning

Are you suffering from hair loss or thinning?  Check out Viviscal.  Cynthia Nixon, ( Sex and the City) had to shave her head for a role.   She credits Viviscal for helping to grow  her hair back faster and thicker than before.  I have been using it for about six months,  and find my hair to be stronger and healthier looking than before.  They also have a men’s formula that produces great results!

Retinoids

It is very important to use a retinoid in the evening as part of your normal bedtime regime.  Doctors recommend them for everyone. It is never too early to start using retinoids. Retinoids speed  cell turnover to minimize the appearance of wrinkles, bolster skin’s thickness and elasticity, slow the breakdown of colagen (which help keep the skin firm), and lighten brown sposts caused by sun exposure.  Retin A is the most popular one, but there are others such as Renova ( the vitiamin A derivative) and Tazarac.  These are available only by subscription, but for a great over the counter one, try Roc deep wrinkle night cream retinol correction.

Some people have to build up a tolerance for retinoids over several weeks before they can use them daily.   it is recommended to use a pea sized amount and no more.  You can top with a night cream if necessary.  If using retinoids makes your skin uncomfortably flaky, red, or irritated, seek out gentler measures.   I  use a retinoid every other night.

Beauty is more than skin deep!

_______________________________________
Certainly each of us has a unique inner beauty that infuses our personality and view of life. But people who say beauty is only skin deep fail to recognize the critical role our physical beauty plays in defining our identity, not just to others
When we look into the mirror, our satisfaction or disappointment with the The face that gazes back from us in the mirror can make us feel happy and feel confident or embarrassed and self-conscious.
When we feel beautiful, we’re on top of the world and feel like we can accomplish anything. If we feel ugly, damaged or ashamed of our appearance, we want to crawl away and hide from the world. The power of beauty to influence our personal identity reaches far below the skin’s surface to pierce our very soul

Exercise is the key to longevity

Don’t even think that you can lose weight without exercising!  The esteemed exercise guru,  Jack Lalanne recently passed away at 96 years young and he exercised until the day he died!  It has been proven that exercise is the key to a long, healthy life.  It increases stamina and builds strong bones that helps prevent diseases such as osteoporosis and arthritis.  It improves circulation for great looking skin and hair.  It only takes a thirty minute workout each day and don’t give me the excuse you can’t afford the time or money to go the gym!  There are numerous programs on television to exercise along with.  My personal favorite is Body Sculpt by Gilad on the Fit tv channel.  So get started, you can’t afford not to!
