We all want to look fresh-faced and younger, and makeup can be a great aid to that. Keep in mind that your makeup style needs to evolve and adapt to your changing skin as you age. Tried and true techniques from your high school years will no longer cut it 15, 20, or 30 years later. You might be an old hand at applying your makeup, and if you're not careful, you can end up looking older, too. We've compiled a list of the most common makeup mistakes that will actually add years instead of removing them.

When we eat more water content foods, as with fruits and vegetables also containing minerals, this keeps us better hydrated. Let's review the keys to healthy water balance.

Winter is here and for many (like me) this includes having dry and itchy skin on the body. It’s one thing to have the skin be dry and flaky (which is common for most people in the winter months), But to have an ongoing itch that is tempting to scratch is really annoying and makes the dry skin condition all the more problematic. So why exactly does the skin itch and what can be done to solve this?

There is nothing more relaxing during cold winter days or nights, than wrapping yourself with a blanket in front of a fireplace and sipping on warm cider, hot chocolate or enjoying your favorite food.

For many, a common goal is to maintain as youthful an appearance as possible as we enter middle-age and beyond. Certainly there are myriad topical cosmetic products designed to do just that by reducing the appearance of wrinkles.

Who doesn’t want, radiant, glowing, wrinkle-free skin? Your skin is an incredible organ with an immense ability to be repaired and rejuvenated! Nourish the skin inside and out, and you can create healthy skin and ageless beauty, no matter your age.

Since the onset of our love affair with Omega-3, a tried and true essential fatty source for a clear, dewy complexion has sadly fallen by the wayside.
That would be gamma linolenic acid (GLA)the essentially "good" Omega-6 fatty acid that I've been recommending to my clients since the early 1980s after I began witnessing firsthand the remarkable healing and beautifying effects it produces. GLA increases cell resilience and moistens the fatty layer beneath the skin making it an extraordinary internal moisturizer.

Cupping therapy, or vacuum therapy, can be used for a variety of applications, from head to toe. One special focus is the head, neck and face, as these are often areas of pain and dysfunction. Headaches, sinusitis, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders, lymphatic issues, chronic inflammation, and surgical preparation and recovery are common concerns for many people who come to see massage therapists.
