A Mouth-Watering Anti-Aging and Anti-Inflammatory Meal You Can Make in 15 Minutes

I found this online and had to make it!  Delicious and your skin will glow like a pregnant woman after you eat it!

Raw Sweet Potato Salad with Curry Almond Sauce is a unique and refreshing salad that is perfect for those hot summer days when you can’t bear to turn on the oven or stove. I was skeptical the first time I tried a raw sweet potato salad, but I was pleasantly surprised. Raw sweet potatoes have a great crunch and fresh flavor that is far from starchy.

Sweet potatoes are packed with beta-carotene which our body converts to vitamin A. Vitamin A is a fat soluble vitamin that boosts the immune system, keeps the skin healthy and maintains eye health. Sweet potatoes are high in antioxidants and lower the potential health risks associated with heavy metals and free radicals as they pass through our digestive tract. They also have anti-inflammatory properties and are great for people with inflammatory conditions such as arthritis. Continue reading

Anti-Wrinkle Creams Don’t Give a Post-Coital Glow So Flush, Blush and Blossom with a Better Anti-Aging Potion… Shea Butter

I knew a girl in Manhattan who was famous for her vast wealth, her couture day wear, her Park Avenue spread and her shiny skin.  Let’s call her G.G. – for Glow Girl.

G.G. was a chain smoker but she had better skin than non-smokers.  After a particularly messy cocktail party chez elle, I cornered her in her bedroom and demanded her secret. We were enveloped in a huge cloud of smoke (we were both lit) and I could barely see her but for the effervescent gleam of her skin which was like a private light source. Continue reading

Add a little organic, non-foaming, chemical free face cleaner to this little brush-wand nightly and see the magical results…

Yes, it is critical to brush your face and body every day… Or – every other day if you are a little lazy like me.  Skin brushing elevates your glow by cleaning out all the embedded daily dirt.   In my wild days of partying, I was surrounded by smokers and running through the streets and clubs of NYC, London and Paris.  You can imagine the pollution onslaught to my face (and insides).  How did I keep looking like a fresh- faced 22 year old throughout my 20s and early 30s???  I had a little face brush. Every night, without fail, no matter how far gone I was I NEVER missed a night cleaning my face with my little brush.  The brush LIFTS dirt and pollution from your face while the stroking increases circulation and blood flow to an area that has been sorely deprived throughout the day and night.  However, it is important to change your brush often or you will get bacteria in your face.  You can also boil your brushes to clean them.  Where do you buy them? I buy in bulk at Sephora or online.  The natural fiber body brush is another critical addition to your bathroom.  Dry brush before you shower.  Regular strokes up towards the heart from the tops of your knees to your bottom, increase bloody flow and circulation… This has been rumored to help reduce cellulite. I also brush my stomach, boobs etc. You will start to look forward to skin brushing more than you know so try to make it a part of your nightly routine by keeping the brushes out and visible on your bathroom sink.
