Happy Monday! Today, I would like to share with you my 5 tips for a brighter face!
It was such a amazing weekend with family and crisp, gorgeous fall weather. Such a great way to enter a new week!
I am often asked about my complexion at age 68, and in pondering it at this age, I believe I have narrowed to five reasons it looks brighter.
TIP #1: HEALTHY EATING
I believe since last March, I have eaten the healthiest food ever in my life. More fruits and veggies and purposeful supplements.
Also, during the past two years, I have spent more time outside. So, I was very pleased when my recent blood tests for a physical revealed that my immunity is the strongest it has been!
My doctor and I both were pleased. The biggest difference in my supplements is that I have added Zinc to my daily intake which before COVID was not the case.
Also, daily I drink a lot of water and green tea, and try to remain faithful to do this daily.
We all know that what goes inside is perhaps more important as what we put on the outside of our skin.
TIP #2: EXCELLENT SKINCARE PRODUCTS
For the past three years, I have exclusively used daily these products from Chamonix, antioxidant based, all natural skincare with plant stem-cell technology.
I noticed a difference and a brighter face from the first week I used these products and I have stuck with them. They often run specials.
Yet, in the past few months I added something to my nightly routine….
I added retinol to my routine at night. I began with the 45 Day retinol treatment called The Reversal by Beauty Bio.
It was excellent and my face took a major turn for the better during the 45 days.
Then I was asked to try this new line by THE ROUTE, THE GOLDEN RULE NEXT GENERATION RETINOID.
Both of these businesses are female owned and developed by women with impressive scientific backgrounds. I only have used them at night and feel like they were a perfect addition to my daily products from Chamonix.
TIP #3: WEAR BEST COLORS
Once again, I want to say how much I did not realize what wearing our best colors does for our face until I saw a demonstration.
When I discovered and made a commitment to wearing my autumn colors, it was like a bright light Illuminated my face.
I could actually see then the dark cloud that rolls in when we are not wearing out best colors. It is truly amazing to watch your face when you put on something that is not in your personal color palette.
So, now I understand more about this next tip.
TIP #4: WEAR BEST MAKEUP
When I made the commitment to wear my best colors, I also changed my hair, glasses and makeup.
The longer I wear these colors, the less makeup I am wearing. Why?
Well, when I wore the cooler colors, they put a gloom on my complexion. Circles under my eyes appeared darker, and wrinkles were more pronounced. My face seemed puffier.
So, I wore more makeup to cover all of those little “imperfections” up.
Now that what I wear helps my face to look brighter…I do not need as much makeup…and I even go more days feeling confident without it.
In the past, if you had asked me to wear an eye palette like you see here, I would’ve scoffed! But, these are the exact colors I wear now…and love it.
TIP #5: OPTIMISM ONE DAY AT A TIME
I made a promise to myself years ago to be the most optimistic, joyful me I could be each day.
It means I choose Joy One Day at a Time…no matter what.
Of course, the pandemic and even recent times have brought my family the same challenges as the rest of you, but I CHOOSE to see the silver linings and remain hopeful.
Of course that is a wonderful way to have a brighter face.
These 5 tips working together have resulted in a brighter face for me and I am certain can do the same for others. I started with baby steps and gradually added all of these and see they do work.
Start with baby steps to see what works best for you! I am not attempting to look younger, but attempting to look healthy and the best possible me at 68.
Please share any secrets you have as well….and remember your face is brighter if you will…..
Just a reminder to relish and breathe in October days…it is half over……goes too fast…
