and Feel Great At Fifty, Sixty and Seventy Something!

Can we really reduce the signs of aging?
You bet! There are
several things we can do to look and feel younger but I believe the way
we eat has more credibility for making us look and feel good than
anything sold in a bottle or tube today. And what about plastic surgery?
Does it really make us look younger and better?
There is some truth to the notion “we are what we
eat”. If we eat greasy deep fried foods on a regular basis for dinner
and cookies later on in the evening, and do this for several days in a
row, we’ll have no energy, puffy eyes, pimples, and blotchy skin.
We'll also feel emotionally out of it. But
when we eat raw fruits and vegetables and other wholesome raw and cooked foods
on a daily basis we’ll have more energy and our skin begins to have a
Frank and I aren't fanatics about
health, however, we do like to feel good and we continue to feel good
and have more energy when we eat right. There are some folks who swear
up and down that eating a total raw foods diet is best, but we don't
think going "all raw" is best for our body. Our readers will
find out why as we continue to write about all things that lead to a
healthy mind, body, and soul.
Now back to feeling and looking
good: The most important aspect of having nice clear, glowing complexion
is eating fresh fruits and vegetables daily. If you can spend an extra
fifteen minutes in the morning to juice some carrots, apples, pears, etc
in your juicer each morning, or even every other day, you will notice a
skin improvement within weeks.
HINT: If you add a couple of cloves of garlic
in your juicer, you will never get sick. I know, I know, it sounds
gross, but it actually tastes good. The garlic flavor is masked by the
natural sugars in the fruit. Four carrots, a bunch of organic kale
greens, an apple, and two cloves of
garlic will give you an eight-ounce glass of great tasting juice. YUM!
Be forewarned it will be green! To brighten up the color a bit, add some
That’s all it takes. We all have been blessed with
everything we need to stay happy, healthy and wise. And yet, many of us do not
take heed to this important part of life that has been freely given to
us. You don’t need to be a celebrity to look and feel great. As a
matter of fact some of the best things known to man cost a fraction of
the cost of those wrinkle creams in a bottle do.
We do need to exfoliate; our skin needs scrubbed
lightly and then moisturized daily. If you put anything on your face at
all it should be pure Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, or Apple cider Vinegar.
All three of these natural products will reduce the signs of aging
better than a thirty-dollar bottle of wrinkle cream with collagen in it.
I use coconut oil on my skin every day and Frank uses olive oil. I know,
I know, laugh, its ok...we don't mind. wink, wink.
Why do we spend our hard earned dollars on wrinkle
creams? Because we are obsessed with the way we look, and we actually
believe that these lotions and creams will make us look younger! But is younger really what we should be after? How about
keeping and feeling fit in our fifties, sixties and even into our
maintaining the “natural look” of who we are?
The fifty something woman and her wrinkles is a
picture of beauty. I can always tell when a celebrity had a face-lift or
Botox – she does not look natural. She will often have inflated uneven
lips, stretched tight masky like skin, and a contorted face,
The natural fine lines and crows feet in the woman
over fifty, who takes care of herself, is a part of who she is. The way
she smiles and laughs and loves life. The natural look of the
woman over fifty and sixty actually looks better than someone who spent thousands
of dollars on a face-lift.
God made us to show signs of aging, as we grow
older. We should try and enjoy life to its fullest while we are walking
on this earth in our mortal bodies and be happy and content with the
skin we’re in. Someday, we won’t have to worry about aging and wrinkles because we’ll be in the spiritual form, but for now let’s
be joyful for the way we look and feel, and take care of ourselves the
best we can. You can look and feel great well into your sixties, seventies, and even eighties!
BTW, Ecuador still bans genetically
modified foods (GMF) in the human food and so this is great news for
those who live in Ecuador! Both Cuenca and Quito have an abundance of
organic fruits and vegetables at prices everyone can afford, not
just the wealthy, like in the u.s! Live it up in your Ecuador
