Home Made Facial Masks for Dry or Mature Skin

Below, I’ve noted a few of my most popular home made facial mask recipes taken from my doctor-recommended book, “Hollywood Beauty Secrets: REMEDIES to the Rescue”. This will help with dry facial skin or mature skin.

1.  Apply mayonnaise to clean face. Leave on for 10 to 15 minutes. Rinse with tepid water followed by a cool rinse. Vinegar and oil in mayonnaise exfoliate, brighten and moisturize skin.

2.  Apply 1 tbsp. buttermilk to clean face for 15 minutes. Rinse with tepid water, followed by a cool rinse. This mask exfoliates, moisturizes and brightens skin.

3.  Combine 2 tbsp. honey with 1 tbsp. apple cider vinegar or lemon juice. Apply to clean face for 20 minutes. This mask heals, moisturizes, brightens and exfoliates skin.

Participate in Life with Flexibility & Trust

Flexibility alows me to move in the flow of life. I choose not to judge experiences as good or bad but instead I remain optimistic and attuned to a higher power, giving me resilience. I adapt to and learn from unexpected events and even find spontaneous blessings in my daily life. With greater flexibility and trust in God, I flourish in new and profound ways.

Louisa’s Daily “Look & Feel Good” Ritual

How To Look and Feel Your Best…..

Taken from eBook: “Look & Feel Your Best on Any Budget”, By Louisa Maccan-Graves

My daily “Look & Feel Good” ritual has helped me achieve several goals in my life. And it is one of the easiest, AND most powerful ways to  really turn your life around. Many of us have begun the new year with new goals or life-changing resolutions in mind.  But quite often, after a few weeks, we find ourselves losing steam and ”sliding back” into old habits.  Before you know it, another year has gone by, and guess what? — we didn’t achieve our goal or dream.

A gentle and effective way to help you achieve goals, to help turn your life around, and  live a more beautiful, fulfilling, healthy and successful life is to ”plant positive seeds of affirmation” into your subconscious. The best time to plant your seeds is right before you fall asleep, and in the morning, as you are waking up. Your subconscious is like an empty field, ready to plant your thoughts. What you think will manifest on the outside!

Here’s What You Do To Look and Feel Your Best:

Each evening and before you rise, repeat a mantra that will help you overcome your challenge such as “I am of perfect health”, “I am rejuvenated”, “I am taking care of my body”, “I am losing weight”, “I am drawing prosperity toward me”, “I am forgiving myself and others”, etc.

Plant your positive seeds of health, happiness, wealth, success, or whatever you desire and nurture your positive seeds daily. Do not dig them up by thinking negative thoughts or talking about your challenge. Instead, turn your challenge to the power you have within your subconscious and experience a beautiful, radiant-filled life with all the great things that God has intended for you.

Planting Positive Seeds To Look and Feel Your Best

By planting your positive seeds of affirmation each day, you will experience changes that will help uplift and empower you. If you’re unclear about what seeds you want to plant, try writing down your goals, visualize your purpose in life and you’ll quickly realize that you’re ready to start your garden. Your “seeds” will blossom and bring you enthusiasm, joy and closer to achieving what you want.

Vitamin D for Weight Loss, Better Health & More

Many recent health books, such as “The Vitamin D Cure” and “The Vitamin D Solution” are boasting the numerous health and weight loss benefits of Vitamin D.  Did you  know that nearly all overweight women have LOW  levels of Vitamin D?

In the past the daily recommended dose of Vitamin D was 400 IU, but given recent findings, that is far too low. Though it’s difficult to overdose on Vitamin D, the daily recommendation is now said to be 2,000 – 5,000 IU for 60 days with calcium and magnesium supplements , then to drop the dosage down to 2,000 to 4,000 IU daily.  But first, have your Vitamin D levels checked by your doctor. Also it is recommended that you expose your arms and legs to the sun for 10 minutes a days.  Below is a list of  Vitamin D health benefits:

* women taking higher level of Vitamin D have 80% less abdominal fat as it helps the liver break down fat * reduces food cravings * uplifts mood and prevents depression *can help reduce throbbing pain of headaches and chronic migraines * can help prevent viruses and speeds relief of infections * can lower the chance of  breast cancer 30% – 50 % *  can lower the chance of colon cancer 50% *  can lower other cancers 70% * can lower rheumatoid arthritis by 42% * can help prevent diabetes.
