Avoid Pesticides & Antibiotics in Food for Hormone Balance
key to achieving good health is consuming fresh, pesticide-free
foods. Thousands of scientific studies have proven that proper
nutrition can provide longevity, long-term quality health and
an uplifted mood. For wellbeing and balanced hormones, incorporate
‘clean’ foods such as antibiotic and hormone-free
poultry, lean red meats, eggs, dairy and pesticide-free organic
fruits and vegetables. Grass fed beef is known to be lower in
fat. Choose high protein grains, nuts, unsaturated oils, and
low glycemic fruits to decrease the risk of hormonal imbalances,
prevent insulin resistance, moodiness, blood sugar spikes, weight
gain, and disease. There’s nothing like the experience
of eating delicious, healthy foods. When we eat healthy, we
For hormonal stability during and after pregnancy, monthly menstruation,
and all stages of menopause, consuming healthy ‘clean’
foods can help improve our mood and reduce irritability, hot
flashes or night sweats.
Phthalates (Synthetic Fragrance)
are added as fragrances to many commonly used products including
face and body lotion, sunscreen, hair and body products, makeup,
soap, perfume, cologne, nail polish, candles, laundry detergent
and household cleaners. Research from EWG.org and the Campaign
for Safe Cosmetics found an average of 14 to 17 chemicals in
name brand fragrance products - yet none of these ingredients
are listed on their labels! If you wear cologne or perfume,
consider switching to natural, phthalate-free botanical essential
oils available at all health food stores.
a habit of avoiding products made with phthalates; especially
those who are planning to become or are pregnant, or if going
through hormonal changes such as menopause. Choose fragrance-free
products to be on the safe side or purchase products scented
with essential oils and extracts. Make your own scented body
products with safe, natural essential oils. See some of my favorite
free beauty recipes and safe household cleaner recipes in my

Your Health by Reducing Products with Parabens
are added to thousands of grooming products including face creams
and body lotions, sunscreens, deodorants, makeup, hair and bath
products - just to name a few. They preserve the shelf life
of products by preventing bacterial growth.
Many studies reveal that, when used in excess, parabens have
been proven to affect our hormones and health. Critical Reviews
in Toxicology notes that “parabens disrupt the human endocrine
system and accumulate in our systems causing hormonal confusion.”
Also excessive use may lead to metabolic or neurological disorders.
parabens in moderation are considered safe, however women on
average use over 10 grooming and makeup products a day. To limit
exposure, switch to paraben-free products that are used on the
larger parts of the body (bath and shower gels, shampoo, conditioner,
deodorant and sunscreen).
BPA for Hormonal Health
BPA is a synthetic estrogen that disrupts the endocrine system,
causing several health issues as noted below. Many household
plastics including water and baby bottles, cellophane wrap,
food storage containers and almost all food cans are manufactured
with BPA (bisphenol A) resins. These resins can leach into our
drinking water, beverages and foods. When BPA-formulated plastic
containers are exposed to heat such as microwaving or sun exposure,
the resins leach into the contents of those containers. Consuming
BPA causes many hormonal imbalances. It can trigger early puberty
and affect those going through stages of menopause or pregnancy.
In addition, BPA has been linked to diabetes, weight gain and

book, AGE-PROOF: Beauty Alternatives You Need to Know.

Skin Care Tips for Acne-Prone Skin
Below are some of my top tips that address teen and adult breakouts:
Cleanse skin with a soap-free, non-drying cleanser such as Glycolic
Cleanser with Marine Plant Extracts. It’s paraben-free,
non-oily and won’t strip or dry skin. Or try drug store
brand Purpose Gentle Cleansing Wash by Johnson & Johnson.
It’s soap-free and hypoallergenic.
After cleansing apply an alcohol-free toner that helps balance
the pH of skin such as Anti-Aging
Pycnogenol Toner. Find it on sale at my shop.
IN THE MORNING: After toning skin, apply an effective day lotion
such as Beyond
Essential, then sunscreen such as Evenly
Radiant Day Creme with SPF 15, then makeup.
THE EVENING: After cleansing and toning, if you have any blemishes,
simply spot dab them using O24U
Hyperoxygenated Gel. Then apply Beyond
Essential facial moisturizer with Matrixyl and copper peptides,
antioxidants, essential minerals (for combination, oily, acne-prone
or mature skin).
Be sure to remove make-up before bed and exfoliate skin two
to three times a week to avoid clogged or enlarged pores. You
can exfoliate with either baking soda, Microdermabrasion
Scrub or an AHA cream such as Evenly
Radiant Overnight Peel. AHA creams hydrate and gently exfoliate
Very important!! Keep face out of the sun as this causes breakouts
and enlarged pores. Wear a visor and sunscreen daily to help
bounce harsh UV rays away from skin. Choose sunscreen that is
formulated for blemish-prone or oily skin. My favorites are
Radiant Overnight Peel (at HollywoodBeautySecrets.com) or
Neutrogena® Free and Clear Sunscreen (with zinc oxide and
To shrink pores, and fade acne or blemish scars, twice a week
apply Louisa's favorite mask. Mix 1 tbsp plain white yogurt
with a squirt of FRESH lemon juice. Apply this mask for 30 minutes
to one hour. It also evens the skin tone, prevents future breakouts,
firms and tightens skin for a face lifting effect.
To shrink large pimples, without drying out the rest of your
face, dip a cotton swab into some witch hazel, and dab onto
pimple. Then dip other end of the swab into some Philips Milk
of Magnesia. The magnesia in milk helps kill bacteria and helps
reduce the pimple or apply
O24U Hyper-Oxygenated Gel.
Stick to a low-glycemic diet to help keep blood sugar levels
from spiking, preventing excess oil production. When blood suagr
spike, testosterone production increases, causing more oil production
and breakouts. Low-glycemic diets include The Zone, The Mediterranean
Diet, or Adkins. Also take omega 3 fatty acids found in flax
seed oil or fish oil capsules to naturally help balance hormones,
reducing breakouts. Take with meals 3x a day. Get them at any
health food store. Check with your physician if you have any
diet or health concerns.
Tie hair back when exercising or playing sports so soiled hands
don't contaminate hair that falls by the face. Be sure to NEVER
touch hands to face unless hands are washed.
Using pressed powder to soak up oil can often trap debris and
clog skin, causing more breakouts. Use a hair curler roller
paper to dab oil from face instead of applying more face powder.
Also be sure to clean cell phones regularly with rubbing alcohol
or disinfecting wipes.
Weight, Protect Health, Prevent Depression & More with Vitamin
you know that nearly all overweight women have LOW levels of
Vitamin D? Vitamin D can also prevent depression, and lower
the chance of breast cancer, colon cancer, diabetes, and much
more! See the list of benefits I noted below. 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, taken with calcium and magnesium supplements
or your multivitamin, then to drop the dosage down to 2,000
to 4,000 IU daily. But first, you may want to have your Vitamin
D levels checked by your doctor. Below, check out the incredible
list of health benefits Vitamin D can provide:
Holiday Party Tips for Glamorous Eyes & Lips
* 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
* can lower rheumatoid arthritis by 42% * can help prevent diabetes.
heading to an after-work party, a great way to instantly give
eyes a glamorous evening look is to line the top outer third
of your eye lids with a dark black eye liner pencil. Next, line
the inside edge of the lower eyes, using a smudge-proof liner
pencil. I picked up Smearproof Eyeliner by Sorme for $7.95 at
my local beauty supply shop. If you can't find Sorme brand,
be sure to ask your local beauty store advisor to show you their
smudge-proof liners. Be sure to mention that you plan to use
the liner on the inner lower rims of the eyes.
A great way for lipstick to last all night long, is to fill
in your lips with a lip stain, then apply your favorite lip
gloss or stick overtop. I like Maybelline Colorsensational Lipstain
because the water-based pigment lasts for hours and comes in
nice colors. It looks like a magic marker so it's easy to fill
lips in with the stain. Find it at your local drug store.
pick up a packet of strawberry Kool-aid. Add some water to 1/2
tsp. of the Koolaid powder, and mix. Apply the stain using a
q-tip and let dry. Then top with your favorite lip gloss.
organic lip gloss I really enjoy is Aubrey Organics "Natural
Lips" Sheer Tint in Strawberry Frost No.377. I picked up
this delicious-tasting gloss at Sprouts Health Food store for
$7. Aubrey Organic's phone number is 1-813-877-4186

Sagging, Thinning Skin? Scientifically Proven Ingredient EGF
"De-Ages" Mature Skin!
of women over age 40 are challenged with accelerated skin sagging,
thinning, and loss of elasticity caused by aging, sun damage,
hormonal changes and menopause. Suddenly skin becomes dull and
thin, jowls and jaw line begin to sag, laugh lines and slack
neck skin is apparent. But the great news is you can reverse
this challenge. I'm excited to announce an affordable topical
solution that firms and thickens, sagging, thinning, mature
skin associated with aging. Want to tighten slack jaw line and
jowls, firm laugh lines, forehead lines, and tighten loose neck
skin? Epidermal Growth Factor Cream also known as EGF cream
is here - to the rescue.
How EGF Works:
Active ingredient EGF, a proven epidermal growth factor, is
an amazing scientifically proven discovery combining 53 blocks
of protein that restores the skin's density. The protein penetrates
and bind the cells of both the epidermis (surface of the skin)
and the dermis (where collagen forms) accelerating the formation
of thicker, firmer, younger looking skin with increased elasticity.
Ultimate Age-Proofing Complex contains the same amount of
EGF found in many pricey doctors brands that cost about $150
a bottle! Great news!!
Ultimate Age-Proofing Complex is 1/3rd the price at just
$49.95 AND also has added potent peptides (15% Matrixyl), copper
peptides and antioxidants, making
Ultimate Age-Proofing Complex THE "Ultimate" formulation
for visibly younger, firmer, thicker and more radiant looking
skin in just 4 - 8 weeks.
Ultimate Age-Proofing Complex onto the entire face, and
be sure to massage into sag-prone areas including jaw line,
jowls, laugh lines and slack neck skin. I love this stuff -
I even put it on the tops of my hands with a drop of transdermal
oil Emu Oil overtop,
before bed time.
Causes of Cracked Heels & Thick Skin Build-up on Heels
The two top reasons for cracked heels is walking barefoot or
wearing backless shoes (sandals & flip flops). This causes
excessive pressure and friction that expands the “fat
pad” of the heels, causing the skin to dry and crack.
NOTE: If you are experiencing bleeding, painful heel
cracks making it difficult to walk, see your health practitioner
as this may be a sign of a more serious concern such as diabetes.
Diabetics are prone to the bleeding, painful cracks because
they have more difficulty producing oil.
The two top reasons for thick skin build-up on the heels is
extreme filing of the heels or using a callus blade. This causes
a vicious cycle as your heels will look pink and soft for a
few days, but then before you know it, the skin grows back even
thicker and faster than before. Why? Your body goes into healing
mode – it thinks it has a wound and reacts by sending
more cells down to the heels. The skin builds up even faster
and thicker to protect them.
that Reverse Cracked, Thick, Dry Skin on Heels & Dry Elbows
Reverse and prevent dry elbows and cracked, thick heels FOREVER.
Cancel your costly pedicure ladies and gents! Try the following
quick tips that really work!!
1. Drink 8 glasses of water a day to keep skin soft and supple
and eat a diet rich in omega-three fatty acids (such as fish
oil or flax seed oil – they both come in capsules) to
keep the body as well as heels and elbows hydrated.
Stop foot filing and never use a callus blade.
3. Instead, a guaranteed, speedy solution that reverses and
prevents cracked, thick heels and elbows FOREVER is applying
deep penetrating moisturizer Zim’s
Crack Crème Original Formula every morning after
showering. It's under $9, all-natural, non-greasy like most
other foot creams.
4. Important Tip For Heels: Never walk around the house in bare
feet. ALWAYS wear socks and slippers as well as AFTER wearing
sandals or open-backed shoes, to support heel pads and prevent
them from spreading and cracking.
5. Before wearing open-backed shoes, apply some
Zim’s Crack Crème Original Formula on your
heels and toes (Zim's instantly banishes dry cuticles), and
when you return home, follow step #4. You can also apply Zim’s
at night with socks and wear them to bed.
For elbows: Apply Zim's on elbows after showering. This reverses
and prevents dry, thick elbow skin.
NOTE: FOR EXTREME cases of thick skin build-up on heels:
Do this pre-treatment once only to help quickly soften and moisten
heels. Soak feet in a foot bath of equal parts warm milk and
warm water for 20 minutes. Dry feet, do minimal foot filing
to remove excess skin. Apply Zim's and, then follow steps 1
NOTE: If you’re experiencing deep, bleeding cracks
making it difficult to walk, please see your doctor as this
may be a symptom of diabetes. Diabetics are prone to very dry
cracked, bleeding heels as they have more difficulty producing
Crack Crème Original Formula at select drug stores
and on sale in the Foot Section at my shop.
Many of us experience acne breakouts on the back and to combat
that, I suggest applying an Alpha Hydroxy Acid lotion such as
Radiant Day Creme to gently exfoliate and soften the skin.
AHA’s may bring more blemishes to the surface for a couple
of weeks, but afterward, your skin will stay clear as you continue
to apply the AHA regularly to prevent breakouts. And AHA’s
keep your back soft, supple and blemish-free because AHA’s
don’t dry the skin like other pimple and acne products
that contain BHA’s.
Other tips that prevent acne breakouit: Stick to a low-glycemic
diet (The Zone, Mediterranean Diet, Adkins or South Beach Diets).
This helps keep testosterone levels low. High glycemic diets
trigger testosterone production which triggers more oil production,
causing more blemishes and acne.
Take chlorella supplements after each meal to help keep skin
clear. Chlorella has many benefits: Helps balance hormones,
helps a sluggish system, uplifts mood, is a toxin-fighter and
immune-booster and more. See more benefits of chlorella in my
new book, Age-Proof: Beauty Alternatives
You Need to Know.
Bump Skin on Back of Arms
Chicken Bump skin, also known as Keratosis Pilaris, is quite
common. Excess skin cells build up around the individual hair
follicles as the normal sloughing of old skin cells does not
occur as effectively so the skin forms overtops the hair follicles
creating the inflamed, rough, bumpy skin. Exfoliating these
areas with the
Microdermabrasion Scrub or applying a lactic acid spray
every morning and night will clear and prevent future build-up
but you must be diligent. Every day after showering apply Skinlasting
Hydrator & Exfoliant. This large bottle is an effective
spray loaded with lactic acid for gentle exfoliation as well
as vitamin C, green tea and NO fragrance – spray on back
of arms, as well as on legs for dewy moist skin and to prevent
chicken bump skin from coming back. Find both products noted

Abdominal Fat & Increase Energy with Natural Calcium Pyruvate
& Green Tea
in time for spring and summer and for those challenged with
stubborn abdominal fat, check out this natural combination that
helps burn stored body fat and increases your energy!
Pyruvate naturally occurs in the body. When combined with calcium,
Calcium Pyruvate (CP), it helps burn stored body fat, minimizes
the amount of excess fat stored around the abdomen and other
parts of the body, increases metabolism, and energy. Pyruvate
is the salt form of pyruvic acid; Calcium is used as the stabilizing
mineral. Calcium is the best stabilizing agent for Pyruvate,
as it attracts the least amount of water.
Pyruvate plays a crucial role in the conversion of food to energy,
aiding the body to convert sugar and starches into energy. It
greatly enhances the effects of exercising and proper nutrition.
Along with fat-burning, CP helps us feel more energized, when
used in conjunction with a sensible diet and moderate exercise.
And you don;t have to exercise like crazy either! -- JUST 30
minutes of exercise (walking counts) 3 to 4 times per week will
to the trick. However, CP should not be viewed as a way to eat
and drink anything and still lose weight. CP works best when
used along with eating lean meats, plenty of fresh vegetables
and fruit, choosing complex carbs (multi-grains) over simple
carbs (white flour and sugar), and getting at least thirty minutes
of exercise each day.
The combination of pyruvate with calcium does not interfere
with any body function, nor will using calcium pyruvate cause
the body to produce less pyruvate in the system. Instead, the
supplement enhances the effectiveness of the pyruvate already
present in the body and increases the ability to maintain energy
for the day, preventing the accumulation of extra pounds. Many
health food shops and vitamin stores will carry at least one
brand of the supplement. The supplement will cost less than
investing in complicated diet plans that may or may not produce
results. As with any nutritional product, it is a good idea
to check with your physician before beginning the use of calcium
pyruvate. Your doctor will be aware of any existing medical
conditions that might inhibit the effectiveness of the supplement,
as well as determine if calcium pyruvate would interfere with
any prescription medications you currently take.
Should Calcium Pyruvate Be Used?
There should be an initial "saturation" of 6 grams
of Pyruvate per day, for the first 10 days. Check the label
or talk to your health food store representative.
CP with Green Tea (EGCG) for Ultimate Fat-burning:
even more fat burning, when you combine calcium pyruvate with
green tea supplements, your metabolism becomes an even more
effective fat burning machine. I've researched many brands of
green tea supplements and found a super potent brand called
Thermo Green Tea, and I placed it on my site at a great
price. Only $19.95 for 90 capsules. It's an exclusive extract
that contains a precise ratio of polyphenols (90mg) of epigallocatechin
gallate (EGCG). This proprietary extract has been proven to
increase thermogenesis by up to 43%. Best of all, Thermo
Green Tea will not increase heart rate. It's the first clinically-proven,
ephedra-free thermogenic fat burner in the world, backed by
a study recently published in the prestigious American Journal
of Clinical Nutrition. These two facts make ThermoGreen
Tea a true breakthrough in the world of fat burning supplements,
plus green tea can help prevent certain cancers, is known to
prevent colds and helps keep skin looking firm and rejuvenated.

-- Results of a randomised, double-blind trial suggest palmitoyl
pentapeptide (Pal-KTTKS) improves the appearance of photodamaged
facial skin. Dr. Larry Robinson, with Procter & Gamble Company,
Cincinnati, Ohio, United States, presented the findings here
at the 20th World Congress of Dermatology (WCD).
pentapeptide is a lipophilic modified peptide originally developed
based on wound healing research and currently being investigated
as an anti-aging ingredient. The peptide was developed by Sederma
SA in Paris, France, and is being tested by Sederma and Procter
& Gamble. The 14-week, randomised double-blind, split-face
study compared the technical and subjective efficacy of a facial
skin care formulation containing 3 ppm palmitoyl pentapeptide
versus a non-peptide formulation.
trial consisted of a two-week preconditioning period and a 12-week
treatment period. Each formulation was tested on 92 women aged
35 to 55 years. Subjects were generally healthy and had moderate
to severe photodamaged facial skin and Fitzgerald skin types
of I, II, or III. During the 12-week treatment period, subjects
were given both test formulations and instructed to use them
twice a day, in the morning and night, on the right or left
side of their face. Facial lines and texture were assessed by
image analysis and trained visual grading of high-resolution
digital images taken at baseline and at weeks 4, 8, and 12.
In addition, subjects completed a self-assessment questionnaire
regarding their own skin appearance at weeks 4, 8, and 12.
showed that the addition of 3 ppm palmitoyl pentapeptide significantly
decreased facial lines and wrinkles as measured by image analysis
at weeks 4, 8, and 12 relative to placebo. Trained visual grading
of images also demonstrated a significant reduction in the appearance
of fine lines/wrinkles at weeks 8 and 12.
data indicated that the peptide formulation showed improvements
in the appearance of age spots, dark circles under the eyes,
and skin firmness. Overall, the results suggest that palmitoyl
pentapeptide improves the appearance of photo-aged skin both
by standardized measures and self-assessment, Dr. Robinson said.

Palmitoyl Pentapeptide Challenges Retinol as a Treatment for
Special to DG News
FRANCE -- July 3, 2002
-- Two teams of investigators say palmitoyl pentapeptide (Pal-KTTKS)
is as effective as retinol in improving the effects of photo-aging
but lacks the side effects often associated with retinol.
findings from two separate trials were presented here today
at the 20th World Congress of Dermatology (WCD).
The first study, conducted by Dr. Karl Lintner, with Sederma
SA in Paris, France, and colleagues, examined the effects of
palmitoyl pentapeptide 3 ppm versus retinol 700 ppm on photo-aged
skin. This double-blind half-face study enrolled 16 healthy
women. For four months, they applied a cream containing 700
ppm of retinol to the crow's feet area on one side of the face
and the same base cream containing 3 ppm of palmitoyl pentapeptide
to the other side of the face.Patients applied the creams once
daily for the first two months of the trial, then twice daily
during months 3 and 4. Significant
improvement of the skin profile (determined by profilometry
of wrinkle depth, length, volume, roughness) for patients using
the peptide was observed at the two-month evaluation versus
baseline with further improvement versus baseline after four
scoring as well as image analysis confirmed a decrease in overall
roughness and deep facial wrinkles with both treatments after
four months. Although skin thickness increased by an average
of 9 percent after four months for both treatments, the two-month
data suggested that palmitoyl pentapeptide thickened the skin
about 1.5 times faster than retinol.
pentapeptide did not cause the inflammatory reactions frequently
associated with retinol treatment.
the results suggest that palmitoyl pentapeptide is as effective
as retinol at regenerating the skin but without the irritation
that often occurs secondary to retinoid use, Dr. Lintner said.
Lintner and Dr. Jean Revuz, with Mondor Hospital in Paris and
the current president of the WCD, presented the results of the
second study, which examined the effects of palmitoyl pentapeptide
5 ppm on the structure of elastin and collagen IV in 49 women
with photo-aged skin.
the course of the four-month, blinded study, the women who used
5 ppm of palmitoyl pentapeptide had substantial improvements
in skin roughness, wrinkle volume, and wrinkle depth. Skin biopsies
conducted on six patients indicated that palmitoyl pentapeptide
triggered growth in elastin and collagen IV and enhanced the
structure of elastin and collagen IV.
researchers note that the peptide was not associated with any
side effects and was "a safe and potent alternative to
Retinoids in wrinkle repair."
pentapeptide is a lipophilic modified peptide that is presently
being investigated as an anti-aging ingredient. The peptide
was developed by Sederma SA and is being tested by Sederma and
Procter & Gamble Company in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Goodbye to Ugly Scars and Help Diminish Stretch Marks with Scar
Gel is not a concealer but a scar treatment. This is a top
selling product so it must be working!! Everyone has scars as
this is the body's natural response to burns, scrapes, surgery,
acne and more. Scar Gel
can be used on new (after wounds heal) or old scars to make
them look softer, smoother and less noticeable. The active ingredients
help break down scar tissue and also have the opposite function
of encouraging cell renewal. This process of breakdown and renewal
helps diminish the discoloration associated with scars. The
result is that scars are softened, flattened and their appearance
is markedly diminished as they blend in with surrounding tissue.
Gel works on old, new, keloid, acne, burn or surgery scars.
If a scar is lumpy or bumpy or has discoloration, this product
will be of benefit. You can also use Scar Gel on stretch marks
to help remove the reddish or purplish color that many stretch
marks exhibit. Scar Gel
is superior to Vitamin E oil and is non-oily and non-greasy
so it won't stain your clothes.
