The Ultimate DIY Anti Aging Method


The Ultimate DIY Anti Aging Method

It’s no secret that we love trying new skincare products. We live and breathe all things beauty and skincare then share what we learn and love with you here, on

Now, it’s also no secret that anti aging is one of our hottest topics. And how could it not be?

Celebrities these days seem to be looking younger with age, not the other way around. I mean, can we just discuss how flawless Jennifer Aniston looks? If only we could be so lucky!

While we’ve shared plenty of homemade recipes for anti aging creams and anti wrinkle masks, not to mention reviews on our favourite products like Lifecell and Elite Serum RX, today we’re going to be talking about the ultimate DIY anti aging method…and we think you’ll be surprised at how natural it is.

One of the biggest triggers for premature aging is that we abuse our body. We stay up far too late, drink a few too many margaritas on ladies night and indulge in processed foods when we know better.  You see, our bodies are meant to eliminate toxins that lead to premature aging naturally, but when we are constantly inundating our body with the bad stuff, it simply can’t keep up.

In addition to these poor lifestyle choices, take into consideration the sort of products we are putting on our skin. Most over the counter products contain chemicals and toxic fragrances. Our natural skin oils are lipophilic (meaning they sink right into the lipid layer of the skin easily to hold in moisture), so the sneaky manufacturers of these products make them with oils that hold onto our natural oils and they hitch a ride right down to the lipid layers too. Long story short, our poor bodies have to spend even more energy trying to fight these invaders so we’re really not doing ourselves any favours.

If you got one take-away from the science lesson I just laid down (albeit an overly simplified scientific explanation of the skin!) it should be that natural oils are much better for your skin and body than anything you could buy in a fancy, well-packaged and overly marketed store product.

The good news is Mother Nature blessed us with plenty of other natural oils that just like our own, work wonders at protecting our skin from aging. So, without further ado let me share the ultimate DIY anti aging method you need to try!

Rosehip and Carrotseed Oil Serum

If you’ve spent any time in front of a television then chances are you have heard of retinol before. Retinol is a form of Vitamin A that is known for being an antioxidant and containing super regenerative powers. It’s like the Superman of vitamins for your skin! Not only does it repair damaged tissue, but it can reduce scarring and wrinkle as well.

Rosehip oil in particular is a fabulous source of this mighty powerful vitamin. It is also rich with omega fatty acids, lycopene and beta carotene; all amazing for your skin.

Carrotseed oil on the other hand is packed to the brim with carotenoids which are known for boosting your immune response to harmful UV rays and preventing sun damage. It also detoxifies and rejuvenates.

To enjoy the anti aging benefits of both natural oils, create the following simple serum. You will need:

  • 1 tablespoon Rosehip oil
  • 2 drops Carrotseed oil
  • 1/2 tablespoon Jojoba oil
  • 1/2 tablespoon Pomegranate seed oil
  • 10 drops Vitamin E oil
  • 1-2 oz clean glass bottle to store your serum

Mix all of your ingredients together then shake gently before every use.

Prepare to throw away all of your store bought skincare products because this DIY anti aging method will blow you away. Now the oily feeling initially after application may take some getting used to, but we swear it will be worth it.

So tell us; do you have an anti aging serum like this that you swear by? If so, let us know in the comment section below!

Turn Back the Clock with the Best Anti Aging Cream for 2015

Do you loathe the idea of your birthday because it’s just another year, another wrinkle and another opportunity to realize that there is no true fountain of youth?

Look, we’ve all felt a little anxiety over aging at one time or another (and if you haven’t, I want to know HOW! Share your wisdom, puhleaseeee!!!!), but let me in on a little secret.

Though you may not be able to turn back the clock, you can mimic the effects with one pretty damn amazing product and what I would consider the best anti aging cream for 2015.


It’s sad but true, as the days tick by our skin ages too and often this aging presents itself by making our skin just a little thinner, drier and looser. Ultimately, the end result is a few wrinkles and fine lines typically around our eyes. There are a whole slew of other side effects, but you catch my drift.

LifeCell Review

Find out how LifeCell measures up to our scrutiny.

So what makes Lifecell anti aging cream stand out among the rest? Well, there are 5 factors we love about it so let me elaborate in no particular order.

1. Soaks right in – In my humble opinion, any anti-aging cream worth its weight out to be sucked in by your skin so it can get down to business erasing those tell-tale signs of aging. Lifecell effortlessly absorbs into your skin and you can see results in just 17 seconds! Don’t believe me….keep on reading!

2. Hydrates and nourishes – Not only does Lifecell anti aging cream absorb, but it makes your skin feel instantly hydrated and nourished. In fact, it hydrates from the inside out to make your skin supple and dewy, just how we like it!

3. Plumps and firms – This wouldn’t be the best anti aging cream for 2015 if it didn’t make your skin look firmer and tighter, now would it! Lifecell gives your skin a boost so you can say so long to droopy facial skin; especially around the eyelids, eyebrows and jaw.

Order Lifecell from the Official Website

4. Worth the price – You’ve heard it before, but I’ll say it again – you get what you pay for. The same goes with this product. Though a bit pricier than everyday pharmacy anti aging creams, Lifecell is well worth the fee. Branded as the no-needle-Botox, you can literally see results in as little as 17 seconds therefore making it worth the price!

Now, I can understand the hesitation when it comes to spending money on a product like this, BUT did you know they offer a free 30 day risk-free trial? Winnnnnning!

5. High return on investment – Let’s bring it all home by talking about this 17 second transformation I keep mentioning. While it may be hard to believe, it’s true. This cream contains micro molecules that reflect the light away from your skin in areas where you would typically see bags or wrinkles.

Yes, I realize this is a temproary result, but with continued use, Lifecell works to fill out those wrinkles and fine lines so you naturally look more youthful.

So what are you waiting for? Get that youthful glow back today. Order Lifecell now!


The Best Fake Tanner for a Sunless Glow

Everybody loves a great tan. With it you can bid goodbye to pale skin and say hello to a beautiful glow.

But to get it you have to spend minutes or even hours under the sun and risk damaging your skin. This is why so many women have turned to fake tanners to still get that glow without having to expose their skin to the sun’s killer rays. But even so, the harmful radiation from tanning beds or the hazardous chemicals found in sprays also have their negative effects.

So should we just stop tanning then? Definitely not! [Keep Reading]

5 Ways to Remove Scars

Raise your hand if you have a scar on your body.

Could be it’s from childhood chicken pox, an unfortunate phase of cystic acne during puberty or simply walking into a tree….yes, this has happened to me before!

Whatever the reason behind your scar, the desire to get rid of it is there. After all, scars are only sexy in theory.

There is a big misconception that you can’t actually get rid of scars. To be clear, this isn’t necessarily true. Scars form when the deep, thick layer of skin (known as the dermis) is damaged. Your body will naturally begin to create more collagen fibers to help repair the damage and the resulting skin patch is your scar. The different texture and colour of your scar is what makes it more prominent.

There are so many ways you can help your skin repair scar damage and get back to its gloriously gorgeous original state, which is where today’s infographic comes in!

If you’re looking to say ‘See ya” to those scars then check out these Top 5 Ways to Remove Scars below!

Naturaful- The Natural Breast Enhancement Cream That Works

Let me ask you a somewhat personal question; have you always been comfortable with the size of your breasts?

I know I sure haven’t.

Raised in an all female household (except for my poor father!) there were a lot of boobs. All 3 of my sisters had rather voluptuous racks and so did my mother. Yet, as I continued to age, my own buds did not sprout. To say I was disappointed would be an understatement.

As I entered my 20’s, it was clear that I was never going to grow a pair of lady lumps of my own, so I did what many women in this situation would do…some online research.

It was during one of my online quests that I discovered Naturaful. [Keep Reading]

JO158-01Winter is a pesky bird both indoors and out. Chilly winds pull moisture from your skin when you’re outside, while indoors thermostats and hot showers scorch your skin and zap whatever natural oils you’ve got left.

The result: dry, flaking, cracking, peeling, red and generally uncomfortable skin. Even those of us with normal or oily skin can feel the negative effects of the winter months. Boo! [Keep Reading]

The truth about acne scars and sun exposureI can’t speak with much certainty about the weather where you’re at, but holy heavens to Betsy it’s hot and sunny here in Thailand.

I’ve always been pretty good at slathering my skin with sunscreen to keep it protected – I’m too damn white not to – but it wasn’t until recently that I realized that might not be enough.

If you’ve ever had acne – and seriously, who hasn’t?! – then you probably have a scar or two from not being able to stop yourself from playing with that zit. For those of you who had more severe acne then you more than likely have acne scars. [Keep Reading]
