i-lite Makes Me Happy!

I've never been a "dark circle girl" but as I've gotten older I've noticed that I do have a little more pigmentation in that area and when I'm tired...it's really bad! So I've searched for the best concealers out there and made a few good choices for this area.

My top pick is by Dermablend as it's creamy and really covers.

My next "budget" pick is by Revlon as it's formula is very similar (not quite the coverage) but very creamy and it works pretty well.

However...no concealer lasts forever --especially the really creamy ones-- and using a long-lasting type just cakes up and looks dry. So as I stick to the creamy ones, I have found I need something to "set" it and create a non-cakey finish. Good luck, right?

I've tried minerals and powders and all kinds of things that promise a fine finish, but as a dry-skinned, over 40 gal (who also lives in the desert, I might add), none worked. Not until I found the Laura Mercier powder. It worked very well. But pricey and hard to get.

So, until I found my newest love (well, we've been together for over a year now), i-lite illuminating veil, I thought I was stuck with one pricey choice. However, I like this even better than Laura's blend (sorry, Laura) and it's cheap and oh-so-light. Plus...it whisks away those dark circles and other facial imperfections and set the concealer so it DOES NOT BUDGE.

If you have this problem and want a solution that works (I promise!), give it a try. You can get a little sample to try before you commit to a big pot... http://www.agelessbeautypro.com/

What's she doing that isn't AGELESS?

This is an attractive woman...so what's she doing wrong?

The super dark liner is heavy and aging. It's actually dragging her eyes down vs. making them 'pop.'

She should go a shade or two lighter on the bottom liner and keep it thinner (not so heavy).
Dark liner on the bottom lashes will drag the eye down, so always stay a couple of shade lighter!


A better example:

This woman has rimmed the water line with dark liner but swept a light shade under the actual lashes giving the same deep effect without dragging the eye downwards.

See the difference?

Ageless Beauty: $30.00 Browlift?

Here are some before and afters of a "$30 browlift."

What's different? Her eyes seem more wide open and awake without looking "done" or overly lifted.

Why do women do this to themselves?

Such a pretty lady...too bad she's gone overboard. The second picture illustrates my point about doing LESS people! The lips are too big, cheeks too full, everything is just out-of-whack. It really makes you wonder what she's trying to hide...or show?

The good news? If she holds back for awhile she should return to normal and be able to start again.

AGELESS Review: OLAY Regenerist Wrinkle Revolution

 

OLAY Regenerist Wrinkle Revolution... Does it work?

All I have to say about this product is OMG!
Seriously...I rarely feel this excited about a product, but I LOVE this one. It truly does relax the lines on my forehead and they even seem lesser after about a week of nightly use.
PROS:
It's relatively cheap and easy to get at any drugstore. See amazon reviews (click box below)
It works fast (in my opinion)
No side-effects or reaction (for me, anyway)
**Use as a wrinkle reducing primer, too. The consistency is somewhat thick and may be just perfect for you!

CONS:
Not permanent (what is?), but cheaper and sweeter than Botox
Need to use consistently to get results

Ageless Beauty: REVIEW: Melt It Off Infomercial Product

Ageless Beauty: REVIEW: Melt It Off Infomercial Product: Melt It Off... Does it work? Have you seen this infomercial? Likely it's caught your eye. They say you can melt off pounds in just 3 days.....

REVIEW: Melt It Off Infomercial Product


Melt It Off... Does it work?

Have you seen this infomercial? Likely it's caught your eye. They say you can melt off pounds in just 3 days...but don't all of them say pretty much the same thing?
I not only got caught up watching it a few time, I ordered it and have used it for several weeks now. Here's my review:
First, I'm an active work-out person. I do it consistently for 4 or 5 days a week, about 30-45 minutes each session. I'm not in great shape, but good shape.
That said, I have used this system a few times a week. I have "melted off" a couple of pounds using it without the diet plan (I just usually watch what I eat and indulge when I must). I have used it with other workouts on altrernating days.
PROS:
It's simple, not complicated and even kind of fun.
The one DVD has several workouts so you can do them as you choose.
Included are cardio and abs + 3-10 minute workouts for days you're rushed.
Includes 2 lb. weighted "G ball" for the workouts
CONS:
Buying off the main site could get you signed up for monthly vitamins -- got mine on amazon to skip that.
Gets kind of monotonous--especially cardio burn workout which just repeats itself for the second 30-minute segment
2 lb. resistance gets light after awhile--need to pay extra for higher weighted balls.
Petty but still...the extras who work out with Mitch smile non-stop. Very fake.

The cheapest, best cellulite buster!

Ageless Beauty Tips:

The cheapest, best cellulite buster!

It's temporary (aren't they all?), but I've found two little items that truly help smooth out the skin and reduce "the appearance" of the vile scourge. They are cheap and easy to get and they work because they increase blood flow in just the right way (better than even using your own hands to do the same). I don't know why or how, but I know it works for me so I thought I'd share...


Use it every night or morning (or both). Start using it over a light fabric as it really is deceptively powerful and can cause bruising until you work up to using it on bare skin.


Bliss Slimulator... use this in the shower with a little body oil or shower gel. It works great!



Bottom line...save your money on the creams and potions. They actually make a difference you can see!

Good luck!

Life After 40--- Living Well Takes a Few Calculated Measure, But Can Pay Off!

 AGELESS BEAUTY TIPS
  1. Exercise is a must. I do cardio (treadmill or kick-butt w/o video like Jillian Michaels) several times a week. I do weights (I like to work my arms and need to so they don’t jiggle…much!) I’d say I spend about 30-45 minutes 5x a week.
  2. I eat/drink whatever I want…in moderation (that old saw is true…) I love good wine, cheese, margaritas, pizza…but I can only eat these things a couple times a week. Other days I eat fish, chicken, beef (a few times a month) plus veggies and salad (no carbs). I try to keep the carbs low, but I love them so I must eat them sometimes, but pay for it later.
  3. My best tip is to just cut the carbs from meals where I have protein/veggies. I eat lots of salad (I do love salad so I make all kinds to keep it interesting). I don’t eat a lot of sugar, but I do need a little during the month. I find the less I eat it, the less I want it. I do drinks lots of water and often put a splash of unsweetened cranberry juice in it (it’s tart!) for extra antioxidants and help. I take multi-vitamins and I’ve started taking fish oil because I don’t eat it as often as I should!
  4. Skincare: Absolute must! I wear sunscreen EVERYDAY (I live in Arizona). I have fair skin so I take care of it. I do glycolic peels a few times a month. I have had Thermage (don’t bother), and other laser treatments (some are good). I do get a little Botox twice a year (I hate the frozen look, but get it in the “11” between my brows). I have tried Juvederm and Restylane, too. I am a skincare junkie and try all kinds of things, but truly feel some of the best I’ve used are found at the drugstore.
  5. 1. exercise, 2. drink lots of water and eat lots of veggies (little sugar), 3. take care of the skin (protect and nourish it), 4. drink good wine and relax often, 5. laugh a lot and have love in your life (the key!)


3 Tips For Life After 40

Living agelessly isn't hard...it just takes work. And if you're not committed to doing the work, every day, forget it. After 40 you can no longer "coast" and worry about it later. Those sleepless nights and late hours now show up faster and linger longer. Remember the days of going out drinking and suffering a few hours of hangover only to do it again? No more...now it's days of getting the balance back!

Here are 3 simple things you can do to really make a difference in that plumping tummy, sagging skin and sleep-deprived rest:

1. It sucks, but it's true: Exercise is the key. The thing is you really don't have to kill yourself. Just find something you like and do it until you're sweaty (yes, you MUST sweat to de-puff the mushroom top) 3 or 4 times per week. It will work. I suffered even though I exercised 5 days a week--I just wasn't really sweating long enough. Once I started doing that, it just melted off (I'm 48!).

2. I started to realize that I needed to take care of all my skin, not just face and neck. I use my "cast off" beauty products all over my hands, arms, tummy, legs and it really has helped! Rub anti-sagging cream into your elbows and hands and you'll see a difference in about two weeks!

3. Get your blood checked. Hormones, thyroid, Vitamin D--all these levels can plummet and by supplementing, you can make a BIG difference. I get checked yearly and it has helped immensely. Take the time and do it!

Tried and True... Tips for Ageless Living Past 40

Tips:

1.) Keep exercising through old age. Just because youre older doesnt mean your body cannot handle exercise. It just may take a little longer to see results than when you were younger. Make sure you add weightlifting to your aerobic routine as it helps burn harmful estrogen-producing adipose tissue!

2.) Eliminate processed foods from your diet. A SAD diet high in refined carbs depletes you of vital minerals and nutrients that are essential to a womans hormonal health.

3.) Eat cruciferous vegetables like Kale, broccoli, and cabbage, which have active chemicals like indole-3-carbinol that assist in your ability to metabolize harmful estrogens that can wreak havoc on your body and raise your risk of certain types of breast and ovarian cancer.

Keep Your "AGELESS MOJO" With These Tips

 I am 44-years-old. Here are my tips to take at least 10 years off your appearance and keep your "mojo:"

1. Drink lots and lots of water. I know you hear this all of the time, but it keeps your skin glowing and hydrated. Water is this magic elixir we dont get enough of and need more of.

2. Dont be afraid to go bold and sassy. Im not saying dress like a teenager. Im saying now is a great time to take risks. I boldly went from brunette to blonde in my 40s -- and Ive never been stared at or complemented more. It was a sassy decision that paid off. I have consistently remained a size 4 my entire life. When I became a mother, I didnt show off anymore. Now Ive gone back to flaunting my assets. I wear comfortable but fitted clothes. I dress up more often in bold and fun clothes that (again) are age appropriate. I wear heels that take my 5 9" height to 62" -- and believe me that turns heads all by itself.

3. Take care of yourself. Eat in moderation. Get exercise. And dont shy away from paying for facials and eyebrow shaping and waxing. Facial hair coming in now that in youre in your 40s? Wax it off! Dont keep it. Seriously, put a few dollars into self care. Youll look ten times better for having done it.

Good Ageless Beauty Tips...easy!

1) I got a really cute young-looking hairdo that people tell me took 10 years off my appearance,
2) I dress young but not ridiculously (I make sure my clothes dont overtake my small frame, which i think makes me look younger). No big collars, no large prints, no blousy or poufy looks.
3) I keep my chin up (sounds stupid, but if you look in a mirror, you will look younger by lifting your chin up an inch or two or 3.

Ageless Tip: Use treatments products at night (not day)

Whenever you shop for new skincare products, most of them have a daytime option (usually with SPF) and an night time option. Which should you choose?

Truly, to keep it simple, stick with the night options and use sunscreen and "treatment" moisturizers during the day. Most moisture lotions have not only treatments like vitamins or smoothing properties, but also sunscreen. Make your daytime regime simple and only use these. For treatments like retinols and lifting serums, allow these to work on clean skin while you sleep. This is when they will work the best and not have to compete with other things like makeup, sunscreen, etc. to do their job.

Ageless Beauty: Best over-40 eye shadow primer?

I've used Laura Geller, Paula Dorf and various others and the one I've found that I like the best right now is by Stila. The Primer Pot contains a tinted, creamy-but-dry formula that glides on and makes my lids look great even without shadow! It makes my lids look smooth--perfect for shadow.

Others I've used have been too tacky (Dorf), too creamy (Geller), but this one is a winner. Wish it was cheaper, but to get what you really want from a product, sometimes you have to splurge. Love it!

AGELESS BEAUTY..on the cheap!

An amazing new product I've found is actually an old one I had laying in my bathroom drawer: OLAY Regenerist Filling and Sealing Serum. I loved this when I first used it, but as a declared beauty junkie, I kept buying other primers and sealers. Well, after using them and being mostly disappointed, I again reacquainted myself with my old fave and I have to say it works better than all of them! Best part? It's relatively cheap and easily available at the drugstore so no trips to Ulta or Sephora or the dept. store needed!

Ageless Living: PGX fiber?

I'm trying the PGX Daily fiber stix that Dr. Oz touted on his show a week or two ago. I don't know, but what could he mean that he drinks these daily? The damn things just refuse to dissolve and you end up with a sludgely glass of tapioca. ICK!

I've tried mixing them in everything, and so far I can only tolerate them in smoothies, but even then you get a little gel-pearl here and there. I won't be re-ordering this particular fomulation.

Just FYI...

Ageless Tip: Don't get caught doing too much

OK, ladies, here's the deal: When you do too much it just makes you look older!

For example, if you're over 40 and your face has ZERO lines, it's pretty obvious you're doing something (filler, Botox, etc.). But if you're practically line-free, but have a little line here or there, you just look more youthful. Period. Even 20-somethings have some lines here and there. Erasing every line make you look plastic and desperate.

I'm sure that's not what you're going for when you hand over the hundreds to the dermatologist. Don't overdo and you'll look even younger!
Doing it right...she looks natural

No, no, no...way too much, looks forced

Just my opinion...

Ageless Beauty Tip: Cheap Wrinkle Reducer

Like Frownies? Me too, but they can be pricey, especially if you use them often. I  have found a cheap alternative that I've used for years: Medical tape. You can buy it at your local drugstore (get the plastic, waterproof kind--the paper kind creases and actually can give you wrinkles!).

Just apply your anti-wrinkle cream or overnight cream (be careful with exfoliating or retinol creams--don't use the tape the nights you use those). After applying cream, let it sink in a few minutes, then just apply a strip of the tape over lines, like forehead wrinkles. When you wake up, splash your face a few times with warm water and then just peel them off. Voila! You will have a lineless forhead.

You can also wear these around the house -- they are clear so you don't see them so easily like Frownies. Also, wear them whenever you do activities that may cause more wrinkles or expressions like working on the computer (furrowed brow) or reading.
