How to keep your eyesight from fading fast over 40

Over 40? Grabbing a pair of readers everytime you want to read something?

Get used to it. Unfortunately eyesight is one thing that slides away slowly as we age. However, I've found a terrific supplement that seems to help. It's by my fave vitamin company www.procaps.com (Andrew Lessman).

I first saw him on one of the shopping channels years ago and ordered something. I think it was the Circulation, Leg and Vein support. Now, nearly 8 years later I cannot be without this supplement. It truly helps with any heaviness I feel in my legs. It's one of those supplements that you don't notice anything if you DO take it; but you sure notice when you don't.

But I digress... eyesight is another topic and the supplement I love is the Ultimate Eye Support on the procaps' site. I take it and I swear my eyes don't get as tired or blurry (placebo effect?). It seems to help.

Also, from WebMD, here are a few great nutritional choices for helping to keep your eyes bright and…

How to Avoid and Reduce Wrinkles

How to Avoid and Reduce Wrinkles Guest Posted by: Nino A small wrinkle on the young face creates fear of aging. As we grow we get wrinkles. Most of us get wrinkles first and then rush to get costly and painful treatments done to remove them. How about preventing them? I agree that all of them cannot be probably stopped, but some can be for sure. Let me tell you how?

Wrinkles On Skin- How Do They Form?
Sleep on one side for many years and your face on that side will develop wrinkles. Can we not change our sleeping position after every few days? Do that and find out.

Smoke and you pull your muscles near the mouth. You will develop the typical wrinkles of a smoker called smoker lines soon. Stop smoking and stop that. Moreover smoking also forms more free radicals that damage the healthy collagen in the skin and make your skin sag with typical signs under the eyes, cheeks etc.

Go out in the sun and let the UV strike your face. It will damage the skin immediately. Your upper skin will beco…

Why Should You Choose an Organic Moisturizer

Why Should You Choose an Organic Moisturizer
This is currently the craze in beauty products. There are several criteria that one needs to check to ensure that they have the correct product on their dressing table. There are organic moisturizers for skin and hair.
The role of a moisturizer is to attract moisture and create a barrier that protects the moisture that is already there. You thus protect your skin from losing moisture and on the same layer use the moisture it has optimally.
A moisturizer has basically two components namely emollients and humectants :
- Emollients make skins smoother.
- Humectants hold the skin Moisture.
An organic moisturizer is packed with natural antioxidants, vitamins and other natural ingredients to keep the body supple, and the skin youthful and young.
Price
Organic moisturizers are generally pocket friendly. They don't cost a leg to purchase because their production cycle is relatively short
Country of Origin
This is very important because not all countr…

The Secret to HIGH Social Media Rankings with Miriam Slozberg

The Secret to High Social Media Rankings How to Get KLOUT




So, Miriam, why did you write this book?

I wrote this ebook because the fact of the matter is, social media is extremely prevalent to the point that is it taking over not just traditional forms of advertising (radio, TV, print) but the first thing people do if they want to find out about you is to look at your social networks and activity.
If you say you are a professional in a particular field but yet there is nothing that you have done online that shows that, no one will take you seriously. The fact of the matter is, what you do online spills onto your offline world. That is how prevalent social media is.
Social media is a huge passion of mine and always has been. It took me a while to learn the proper methods of using it but once I learned, it helped me in so many ways that I wanted to help others as well. So I had written this ebook for partially that purpose but I wanted to also teach others how Klout comes into play, and wh…

Top Over 40 Makeup Tips: What to cut; what to keep

Image
10 Years Younger is just a few minor changes away. Top Over-40 Makeup Tips: No Powder No Lipliner Light pink/beige/off-white crayon/chunky pencil No dark eyeliner Use color: lips, cheeks, eyes No shimmer Concealer Moisturizer / Self Tanner First, we’ll assume your skin is being properly exfoliated with a microdermabrasion, gentle peel, mask, etc. Also, you’ll need good moisturizer and sunscreen. You may also wish to combine a small drop of self-tanner in your daily sunscreen. This will give your skin a nice low-key glow. Just use a drop each day or every other day. You may be able to get by without foundation if you use this method of giving your skin some “natural” color. If you decide to use the self-tanner in your sunscreen or moisturizer, be sure your skin is properly exfoliated. A word on exfoliation: Don’t overdo it. Using a gentle cleaner daily, a mask once a week and a more intense exfoliation method (chemical peel, microdermabrasion, etc.) every 30-60 days is adequate. Over-e…

Eyeball-it Mushroom Soup Recipe

Eyeball-it Mushroom Soup

Mushrooms
Stock: Vegetable and Chicken
Carrots, Celery, Onion, Thyme
Cream or Half and Half

Add 1/2 of one yellow diced onion and one garlic clove (minced). Cook until onion starts to turn clear (about 4 minutes).
Add chopped mushrooms--use any you like, but chop them the same size for even cooking. I use portabella, shitakke, and button.
Add some thyme (about 1 tsp.).
Cook for about 5 minutes. You can also add some diced carrots and celery.
Once mushrooms and veggies are starting to cook, add 2 cans of vegetable stock and one can of chicken stock.

Makeup Tip: How to Revive Old Mascara

Don't know about you, but I've got about 5 tubes at any given time of mascara. Some are high-end, some drugstore, but all share one thing: They dry up. It may be because I live in a very dry climate, but here's something I do to revive them to a glossy, creamy texture vs. the dry, clumpy texture they've become. Just run hot water in your basin and plop the tube (make sure it's closed tightly). Let the hot water run over the tube while you do something else (line your eyes, apply concealer, etc.). Then, after a few moments (about 60-90 seconds is enough), your mascara should be nice revived!
