  • New improved ingredients?


What else you could see ?

Let me tell you, I was pretty much like that when I was young. But our products in my time in the early or late 1980’s , I heard only from the TV commercials and when I visited the stores, I took time to read the ingredients, since I was studying chemistry , I got curious of the combination of science and nature, but was not really a priority . Still on those times , is according to my wallet, or according to what can  afford.

Luckily, I got involved with this company – forever living products. It is the start, I learn many things about anti aging, personal skin care, home care products, natural supplements and many more.  Proud to be part of the FBO, it is not about the supplemental income but the knowledge I keep updating with new ingredients combined with nature and science is very interesting and rewarding. The awareness of ingredients from nature combine with science is really amazing.

Skin care can be varied depending on the seasons.

In which I experienced that is is always better to vary the skin care from summer to winter.

For summer , I wear less , and often clean my face with just ph- balance soap. Normally , with first ingredients is plant base like avocado,  olive oil, and the my favorite ingredients in my personal care must be aloe vera. If the percentage of aloe vera is high, that I would love to have.  I also liked the avocado soap, it is something I consider when my skin starts to dry especially in the winter.

Being a busy Mom doing all the multi tasking, it is sometimes hard to take time for self just for the skin care routine, but when you develop the habit of cleansing, toning, moisturizing, you will get uncomfortable if you miss a day or night with your daily favorite skin care routine.

Finding the best anti – aging is not really to be relied on the experts. The expert is yourself.  Professionals for skin helps a lot when we have real trouble or problem in the skin. You know yourself better than anyone. You observed since young age what gave you trouble and what makes you feel good.  We often influence by our parents, friends, relatives or just plainly by very attractive advertising. Simple ingredients in a products are better.

These factors we consider in evaluating our skin

  • genes
  • environment
  • lifestyle
  • food choices

(If I miss to mention something, let me know, please share your knowledge. It is very much appreciated.)

Different season, different skin care! YES!

For me, it is important to vary my skin care depending on seasons.  Every season, our skin adjust to the environment.

I started learning about it after few years consistently using one brand to my chemically, sun damage skin in my face. Imagine I cannot go out without make up, and it became worst when I reached the pre-menopause stage and the premier stage of induced menopause ( long story). It was like a map of North America in my face – kind of pigmentation. I spend thousands of dollars to find the solution to recover of what I used to have. It took time and lot of patients.

Under the sun , I am not so worried anymore nowadays, as long as not long enough to be under the sun, not more than 2 hours direct exposure worries me. When extreme hot and humid season, umbrella is useful but feel awkward because very few are using umbrella during summer. A yearly and regular check with dermatologist for whatever issues in the skin will be prevented. Normally dermatologist gives advice like put some SPF 30 at least in how warm summer – sun exposure.

The sun is not really a problem as long not over exposure.

I think there is no such best anti- aging unless your skin are well nourish inside and out. One factor I consider is balance your lifestyle, have enough sleep, more clean water intake especially in warm humid season.  At least just clean drinking water helps for overall health of your skin. Keep hydrated. Of course eat balance and more nutritious food. We heard often ” you are what you eat”. I am not sure this make sense to everybody, but , I feel it make a real difference if you consider what to put in your mouth and your skin.

So many are saying,

” Your skin is a reflection of your health, good Nutrition is the first step in your skincare regime. ”

Beautiful skin is deep, it is  to nourish from inside and out.
