Fighting Signs of Age

I’ve gotten to that age where my skin, weight, and energy levels don’t bounce back like they used to when I was in my early 20s. It seems like every morning I wake up to find a new wrinkle or line that hadn’t been there when I went to bed. To help fight the signs of aging, I’ve started a new skincare regimen.

For starters, I’ve switched to a gentler cleanser. The cleansers and toners I used as a teenager to ban acne are just too harsh for my older, more fragile skin. I’ve also found the best anti-aging skincare moisturizer and eye cream. I slather them on liberally at night so the nutrients can soak in while the skin naturally goes into repair mode. In the morning, I cleanse my face again and put on a lightweight moisturizer with SPF 15 to protect from sun damage.


Do You Have Backne?

Acne always seems to crop up when we least expect it and “backne” (acne on the back) usually comes when we’re stressed and at the most inconvenient times too, like prom time or sundress time. What can we do about backne?  We can eat right, drink plenty of water, get enough sleep and exercise regularly to help control breakouts.

When you get hot and sweaty it is important to shower to prevent your pores from becoming clogged. Use an acne-fighting soap for your back and make sure that you exfoliate gently on a regular basis.  Then use a good moisturizer on your back to help clear up acne and treat dry skin.

Pampering yourself can be easy and affordable when you use what you already have to create luxurious and beneficial facial masks. Mix up a mask that meets your skin’s needs, and then plan on kicking back and relaxing. You might consider a cup of hot chamomile tea or a hot foot soak to go along with your at-home spa theme.

Dry Skin: Mash one banana and add five tablespoons of ground oats and a tablespoon of honey. Apply to damp skin and leave on for about twenty minutes. Rinse off with warm water, blot dry, and apply a good moisturizer.

Oily Skin: Mix one egg white, half a cucumber and one drop of a mixture of one drop lavender essential oil and one drop rosemary essential oil in a food processor or blender and then refrigerate for about twenty minutes. This mask can be left on for fifteen to twenty minutes. Rinse off with warm water, blot dry, and apply a good moisturizer.

Blemished Skin: Mix chopped tomato, a tablespoon of instant oatmeal and a teaspoon of lemon juice in a blender until mixed. Let mask stay on skin for ten to fifteen minutes. Rinse off with warm water, blot dry, and apply a good moisturizer.

Tired Skin: Mash five ripe strawberries, a few teaspoons of heavy whipping cream and a teaspoon of honey together an apply to face. Leave on for half an hour and rinse off with warm water, blot dry, and apply a good moisturizer.


My daughter paid off her car loan (big celebration) and asked me to go pick up her title from the dealer because she no longer lives here. I was just going to run in and run out but you know what happens to the best laid plans. I asked for the papers and the receptionist was looking them up but couldn’t find them so the office manager came over and started to help. He told me they were serving sandwiches to their customers today and asked me to go make myself a sandwich while they did a little digging for the correct papers. While I was making a turkey  sandwich with all the fixings, the receptionist got a call from her son.

She and the office manager started discussing teenaged children and the receptionist said she remembers what she was doing at the same age her daughter is now and she is very worried because her son had just called to tell her that her daughter had invited her boyfriend over while mom was at work. I told her I had more problems like that with my girls than I ever had with my son. The office manager said he only has a 12 year old son and his biggest problem so far is that his skin just started  breaking out with pimples. You know I had to put my two cents in about skin problems. I told him to get his son some Dudu-Osun African Black Soap and also some shea butter so he can get rid of the pimples. He surprised me by saying  he wanted to get him some natural products instead of the ones with the expensive commercials and infomercials because he thinks natural products are better for you. I was all set to go into the whys and wherefores but I didn’t have to, he already knew about our natural products. You should try it too if you have any problems with your skin.


Do you wonder whether to use an ointment, a lotion or a cream to relieve your dry skin? These terms describe the way skin care products are prepared. Ointments are prepared using oil and may stay on your skin longer but many people don’t like them because they are  greasy and don’t soak into the skin. Creams are less oily than ointments and can be made from natural products so they do soak into the skin easily. Lotions are water-based and get absorbed into the skin quickly, causing instant, but not long-lasting, relief. For longer-lasting relief, choose ointments or creams.

If you have dry or itchy skin, avoid using too much soap, antiperspirants,  hot baths or anything else that removes your natural oils. Skin dryness and itchiness is worse when the humidity is low and you should definitely avoid stress, too much exposure to the sun, and smoking or secondhand smoke.

celluliteThose dimples on your hips, thighs, stomach and buttocks are actually pockets of fat that are very unsightly. The causes of cellulite can be anything from poor circulation and a lack of oxygen to water retention or hormonal changes. It could be related to anything from poor lymph drainage to menstrual cycle problems. Whatever the cause of your cellulite, there are several things you can do to lessen or eliminate it from your body.

Treatment for cellulite is not easy and may be a lifelong struggle if it runs in your family genetically. There are some things you can do whatever the cause of your cellulite. The first thing to do when you attack cellulite is to pay attention to your diet. You may be able to reverse that cellulite by changing your diet. Eat lots of fresh vegetables, buy free-range chickens, turkeys and eggs, organically grown whole grain bread, pulses (beans) and rice. Drink only spring water, fruit juices and herb teas. Do not eat dairy products from cows and cut out any fermented foods. Do eat raw cabbage. It is the best food in the world to eliminate toxins from your body.

Here are four anti-cellulite essential oil synergistic blends.  You can try two oils that you already have or two that you wish to try. I usually use the blend that smells the best to me. My favorite of these blends is the rosemary and juniper blend but sage and patchouli are also nice. Whichever you choose, remember to massage your cellulite areas while they are under water. For all of these blends, use the following proportions for use in the future or use the quantity below for two baths. Use only 6 drops per bath.
