Recently I reconnected with a long lost friend from my days in television. She’s one of those friends that even though we haven’t seen each other in 6 or 7 years, we picked up right where we left off.
She wanted me to write out all the things I personally do to slow down the aging process.
This list is for my dear friend Judith and anyone else curious about my daily “anti aging regimen”.
Face Regimen. Morning and Night
Makeup removal – Organic Cold Pressed Coconut Oil
Toner – Raw Organic Apple Cider Vinegar (you can dilute it with some alkaline or spring water if you like)
Anti Aging Serum – Organic Herbal Face Food
Moisturizer – St. James Formula with Type II Collagen , on my face neck and crows feet (this pure all natural product is not sold in stores, very soon it will be available on this site)
The first thing I do when I get out of bed is head straight for the kitchen and put a spoonful of Raw Organic Coconut Oil in my mouth for my morning Oil Pulling. I swish the oil in my mouth, through my teeth, up into my gums, as I take the dogs out and get my next regimen ready. After about 10 minutes of swishing the coconut oil I spit it into the trash, then go into my bathroom where I rinse my mouth out with water. Oil pulling gets rid of the bacteria and viruses in your mouth, freeing up your immune system to work on my important things. It can also help whiten your teeth.

1 teaspoon of Organic Sulfur Crystals mixed in 1 cup of Alkaline water (or you can use spring water, do NOT use water with chlorine or it will ruin the nutritional value of the Sulfur) add 1 pack of Liv On Labs Lipospheric VitaminC.

These two things are so super nutritious that most of the time I am satisfied and do not eat anything else at breakfast.
I sit on my couch and spend at least 5 – 15 minutes in meditation. As I breathe I visualize all the things in my life I appreciate. This not only helps get my day off on the “right foot” but it also puts oxygen in my blood which helps nourish the skin. Read Meditate Your Way to Ageless Beauty

Yes it is a long list, but don’t drive yourself crazy trying to do everything at once. Pick one or two things and then every couple of weeks add something else.
