The term "anti-aging" was coined in the early 20th century by Helena Rubinstein and Elizabeth Arden, who blended their beauty products to help prevent skin aging. The story of Helena Rubinstein, born as Chaga Rubenstein, is fascinating as she believed that there are no ugly women, only lazy ones, emphasizing the importance of using the right products to enhance your natural beauty. Elizabeth Arden, also known as Florence Nightingale Graham, is still known today for her products, including the Elizabeth Arden of NY skincare line, which includes active ingredients like ceramides and matrixyl 3000.
The author's anti-aging daily face-care routine includes using Wholesale Natural Body Care products, such as the Red Clover & Calendula Botanical Cleanser and Facial Moisturizer, paired with the Matrixyl 3000 Super Peptide Eye Cream and SPF face cream during the day. The author also emphasizes the importance of taking care of the skin on the body, using Wholesale Natural Body Care's Hemp & Shea Body Wash, Aloe & Shea Body Wash, Miracle Body Oil, and Butter Cream Body Butter to keep the skin feeling and smelling great.
The author also shares their personal experience of being diagnosed with breast cancer and finding natural ways to help with the healing process, such as using the Miracle Healing Oil on the surgery site to prevent keloids and reduce scarring.
Additionally, don't forget important factors such as diet, hydration, exercise, and rest can also impact our appearance and aging process. Eating a balanced diet, watching portion sizes, and getting enough exercise and rest are essential for optimal health. Finally, the author raises the question of whether there is such a thing as "Anti-Age Dressing."
Taking care of our bodies is not just about anti-aging for our faces; all of our skin ages and deserves attention. After a bath or shower, if we don't use a good body cream or moisturizer, we can see the effects in the mirror. To help my entire body look and feel better, I use shower gels or soaps that aren't excessively drying, such as Wholesale Natural Body Care's Hemp & Shea Body Wash or Aloe & Shea Body Wash. I follow up by massaging in Miracle Body Oil while my skin is damp and using Butter Cream Body Butter or Ash Be Gone on dry spots and elbows. The scented Butter Cream keeps my skin feeling amazing and smelling great, and my hubby loves it too.
I was diagnosed with Ductile Carcinoma in my left breast in March 2021 and had a double mastectomy a month later. During my healing process, I used Miracle Healing Oil on the tender and dry tissue under my breast, which not only helped the scar fade but also prevented keloid development. I still use the same oil today with amazing results.
When tempted to be lazy and skip my anti-aging face-care routine, I remember Helena Rubenstein's quote that there are no ugly people, only lazy ones, and I use my favorite natural skincare products with confidence. For warmer days, I prefer using light moisturizers like the Blue Tansy Hydrating Gel under my makeup.
Eating healthy, getting enough rest, and dressing well are all essential to looking and feeling youthful. Eating too many sweets can harm both our waistlines and skin, so it's crucial to have a balanced diet and exercise regularly. Even as a grandmother, I don't want to dress frumpy or older than my age. I opt for comfortable wardrobe pieces in colors that flatter my skin tone and make me feel good. Though I wear black for work, I try to have fun with it.
My anti-aging daily face-care routine using Wholesale Natural Body Care favorites is listed below.
My current favorite facial cleanser is the Wholesale Natural Body Care Red Clover & Calendula Botanical Cleanser and I use the Red Clover & Calendula Facial Moisturizer in the morning. I pair these products with the Matrixyl 3000 Super Peptide Eye Cream that I pat around my eyes being extra careful not to get to close due to my sensitive skin around my eyes. I use an SPF face cream in the day time as well.
Make sure you put as much energy into your attire as you do your diet, resting well and skincare routine to make sure you show up as your best YOU!!!
