    Well genetics is an indicator of your aging process. If your family members aged poorly then you could too.

    I have seen immediate improvement in my complexion when using powerfull or bulk PureDopa.

    I also exfoliate once or twice a week with facial scrub.

In the shower I use a water activated gel cleanser, then a honey almond body scrub, and on the face an exfoliating gel scrub. Then I apply an herb-mint facial mask which I leave on for 10 minutes while I prepare the rest of my routine. I always use an after shave lotion with little or no alcohol, because alcohol dries your face out and makes you look older. Then moisturizer, then an anti-aging eye balm followed by a final moisturizing protective lotion.
    That was amazing my friend, American Psycho! After the first few lines i was throughly creeped out before i realized the reference...sigh...good humor and irony.

  4. Members of my family did age well, so I don't really think genetics is against me, I know there's some people out there who look like they're 50 when they're only like 32.

    That Monavie drink seems like a total scam, not to mention the ridiculous cost, but acai berry looks like something to look into.

    I'll definitely have to give java lather soap a try.

    Also I'm thinking controlling cortisol is an important thing. I take Reset AD right now, and I'm thinking of using some of primordial's new EndoAmp to really take the stress away.

    My only real concern are my nasolabial folds and cheeks, they seem just a bit too dominant on my face, not to mention my nasolabial folds are asymetrical when I smile or laugh, who knows, maybe they're just meant to be that way or maybe it's because I frown too much. I definitely do feel that someone's face can look better depending on the lifestyle they live, happier people always seem to end up being more physically attractive as well (or maybe they're just happy cause they look good).

    Because of the number of replies to this topic, it seems that this is not such a girly topic after all.

  6. Skiba, I hear what your saying about Monavie. I thought it was a total scam 2. A buddy of mine gave me a free months worth and I was sold on it. The its not just the Acia berry its the combination of berrys , fruits etc. I feel great using it. I hve done my fair share a PH and steroid cycles throughout the years and adding the Monavie into the mix has been the missing link for gains and recovery. I recomend you give it a try its for real. And yes the price does SUCK.

    Poseidon worked great for my complexion. And definitely quit the smoking.

    chantix!


    Its expensive but I heard it works wonders. Most insurance companys wont pay for it though so be ready to shell out 85 bucks for it (oops 85 if they do cover. Over 100 if they dont )

  9. a couple things

    make sure your pillow cases are clean believe it or not

    eat fruit

    antioxidants

    don't sleep on your face

  12. Java Lather has been receiving some rave reviews, but personally I found it to be too irritating when I used it as a face wash... It dried out my skin...

    Poseidon works pretty well, as others have mentioned...

    You may also look into drinking green tea, carrot juice (or possibly just ordering some carrot powder...

    But yeah, as others have mentioned, stop smoking, up your water intake, and try not to sleep on your face.

  13. fish oil

  14. Develop a consistent routine with washing and taking care of your face. This way, when you do add in other variables, you know what is working and what isn't. yes it might take a little bit longer to get results, but once you do, you'll know exactly how to keep them going.

  15. my skin is weird... especially on my face.. i suffer from a daily outbreak of hives.. so i use a antihistamine to control the outbreaks and puffiness. 15 minutes after i shower, i find my skin to dry up and become puffy.. If i apply a oil-free lotion/moisturizer.. my skin will become to oily... causing some outbreaks once in a while.. I have been taking powerfull latley, and can say it does help a little with the complexion, and fish oil. How many Mg's or caps of fish oil do you guys recommend per day? What is a really good anti-oxidant to start taking? A good face wash/ lotion? Should i even wear a lotion? I find that if i dry my face, immediately after showering, then i wont have as much problems, with the itchiness or puffiness, but i don't get that same feeling the moisturizer provides, but i hate it when the lotion makes it to oily? I will also look into the java lather..

  16. I'm 46, but look much younger. [I still have no problem getting hot young chicks -- and I'm talking like 18-22's at work, the gym, my tanning girls, etc. But I've just recently begun to feel guilty about it, and now I always tell them my age up front, and usually shy away from any involvement if they're too young, so don't rip me for being a perv, lol.] But anyway, if I have a "secret" (other than genetic luck), it's to do as little as possible. I used to wash/scrub my face at least twice a day, and use all the various products that are supposed to be good for your complexion. But I slowly figured out that these can be very irritating to your skin's natural chemistry. I started to notice that when I'd go hiking/climbing and sweat like a swine, without really washing my face for days at a time, my complexion always looked great when I got back to civilization.
    So now I just splash a little lukewarm water on my face once a day, and rarely use soap at all (on my face). This alone seems to be the most effective "fountain of youth" I've discovered. Just let your skin find it's own healthy balance.

  17. There are several environmental factors that can also dramatically effect how your skin appears. Everyones environmental situation is different and should be considered.

    I've definitely heard this before, probably as far back as middle school health class. I for one don't sleep well on my back so when I sleep on my side or my stomach I naturally sleep with my face to the pillow. Whether that makes a difference I'll never know, but I'd rather sleep with my face on the pillow and actually get some rest than sleep on my back with my face up and get no rest at all. The latter is probably worse for your complexion anyway.

    Funny, I was just talking about this on another board. With the disclaimer that i became a distributor a couple of weeks ago, I think this stuff is the bomb. And when I first heard about it I was like "yeah, right..."

    Right on, Monavie has been the missing link in my PH cycles it make you feel great.

  22. Coconut Oil...

    I simplified things and just starting using this yesterday... Damn, this stuff works really well, and it's only been a day...

    Use it as a moisturizer pre-bed, then wash off in the morning... You can also use it during the day... That's what I'm doing...

    Perfect advice.

  24. Hey I know this is an older post, but I've felt that I've made a discovery, but then again a lot of people already knew this.

    So I haven't washed my hair with any shampoo for about the last 2 days, and amazingly my hair, skin, and face look a lot better than before, I'm really amazed by this. I guess my face kind of had a washed out look to it but now it looks like all the oil and whatnot is in there and it's great. I'm thinking I'm gonna go for a while without washing my hair.

    I am also thinking of getting an organic shampoo that doesn't contain sodium lauryl sulfate or something similar to that, this ingredient is an industrial chemical and some people even say it causes hair loss.

    My advice to anyone who washes their hair everyday is to give not washing it a try.
