HOW TO BRING OUT YOUR NATURAL BEAUTY AT 50, 60, 70 AND BEYOND

1. Keep yourself hydrated: Think of how much more alive your plants look when you keep them watered. Same thing with your skin. Drink plenty of water every day. Your skin will be kept naturally hydrated and you’ll see the difference. I promise.

Did You Know?

  • We lose water from our bodies even when we breathe.
  • Foods with high water content like soups, coconut water, buttermilk, cucumbers and oranges are good sources of water for the body.
  • If you have sugar free soda water with lemon between every alcoholic peg you consume, it can prevent a hangover and make you drink less.

2. Exfoliate once in a week: Use a facial exfoliation product that suits your skin type. The exfoliation will help to get you rid of dead skin cells that are clogging up on the top layer of your skin and bring the hidden more youthful skin to the top. Here’s what we recommend.

Aside from clearing away dry and dead skin, a regular exfoliation habit increases the skin's radiance, clarity, and youthfulness, and that's just the start.
  • It Unclogs Pores. ...
  • It Prevents Acne. ...
  • It Helps Other Skincare Products Penetrate Deeper. ...
  • It Evens Skin Tone. ...
  • It Boosts Circulation and Lymphatic Drainage.

3. Avoid too much direct sun exposure: Do not expose yourself for long hours to direct sun heat, as the direct sun heat for long hours may cause aging spots and wrinkles. Before going in to direct sunlight, use a good sunscreen.

4. Exercising: Exercise daily till you start sweating. I know. This isn’t normally what you’d expect to hear but when you perspire, it’s like purging impurities from your pores from the inside out. Clean pores shrink to normal size. Normal pores make for a smoother skin.

By getting the heart rate up and improving blood circulation, oxygen and nutrients are delivered to the skin which keeps the skin healthy, promotes collagen production, and promotes new skin cells which keeps the skin looking glowing and is also helpful for anti-aging,

5. Moisturizer: Use a good moisturizer every day, especially on the facial area to make your skin look healthy and glowing. An effective tip especially if your skin tends to be dry. Here’s our best moisturizer.

Even applying your moisturizer promotes healthier skin. By rubbing it into your skin in a circular motion, you are giving yourself a mini-massage. This massaging action improves circulation to your facial tissue, helping to produce new skin cells and stimulating the production of collagen and elastin, the structural proteins that help keep skin looking young.

6. Before you sleep: Rinse off and cleanse your face to remove make-up and dirt from your face. Otherwise your skin will remain clogged up for long hours while you are sleeping.

Night is an essential time to renew your mind—and your skin. Adding a moisturizer before bed creates softer, more hydrated, and better-looking skin the next day. It also helps seal in moisture and repairs the skin barrier that's compromised by dry air and harsh cleansers. Lastly, during the night, your face is almost completely expressionless. This means those smile lines, frown lines, forehead lines are relaxed. Moisturizing before bed helps smooth these lines. Make sense?

Here is the organic moisturizer we recommend.

7. Avoid stress and have adequate sleep. O.K., I can hear you fussing and rolling your eyes at this one and I totally agree, it's easier said than done. I was just stressing about getting this blog post done for you and saw this one so stopped, took a deep breath, spent a few seconds in meditation . . . and then resumed. (I'd gotten so many interruptions during the process I had to remember was I left off each time.)  Do your best.

8. Eat healthy natural food: This will provide you the required vitamins and minerals that are good for your skin.  This is one I've struggled with too. Is that grass-fed beef really worth the extra cost over the grain-fed?

Grass-fed beef usually contains less total fat than grain-fed beef, which means that gram for gram, grass-fed beef contains fewer calories (1). But the composition of fatty acids is also different. I won't go deep into this here but please research the difference in the fatty acid components to learn why the grass-fed beef may be another small key to overall health and better looking skin.

 9. Avoid smoking and too much of alcohol: You may take moderately good quality alcoholic drinks. This isn't a judgement. We're talking about how to have beautiful skin.

 10. Make-up products: Try to use natural or organic make-up products that work with your skin's natural beauty and texture instead of those that clog your pores. Makeup is like paint. Layer after layer over time clogs pores and causes a rough looking surface. Using makeup that is as close to nature as possible (including using none when possible) is always the best way to maintain health skin. I recommend BOOM! By Cindy Joseph. I know the person who built this company and can assure you they are as passionate about healthy skin as you are. Good people. Good products.

...Organic Sunless Tanner

 

Stopping here first was a good call.

We used to enclose a printed version of this booklet with our tanner but we continually get suggestions and recommendations from the hundreds of customers who love this tanner so we decided to convert it to a more dynamic forum so you always have the latest information for getting the perfect tan.

One you learn these simple secrets, you can keep that sexy, natural looking tan all year long while you're also pampering your skin.

You'll get more than just a tan.

My Skin's Friend Sunless Tanner is on of the very few liposomal tanners on the market. It actually helps moisturize your skin as well as tanning it so it's like getting two products for the price of one.

These simple secrets will guarantee an even, natural looking tan
Getting an even, natural looking tan shouldn't be difficult yet we hear from customers who have tried so many sunless tanners on the market only to be disappointed in the look of their tan. 
We set out to make the best organic tanner on the market and from the emails and customer reviews we get, looks like we've accomplished it.
If you don't get the perfect tan, let us help
Sure, we occasionally get a customer feedback that says they got streaks or some uneven spots but even then, we work with them to help correct those issues and start over. Without exception, the outcome is positive so I urge you to write to us if you experience anything but a perfect tan and let us help.
Getting an even, natural looking tan is definitely possible without covering your body with chemicals, baking in a tanning bed or enduring the funky smell most tanners leave you with.
If you follow these simple steps, you too will be sporting a tan so natural looking that your friends will ask you where you just vacationed!
First things first. 
My Skin's Friend SUnless Tanner

 

Don't rush the process o.k.?

You want a natural looking tan, not a cheap paint job right? Just like getting a real sun tan, it takes a little time and patience but the outcome will be well worth it.
My Skin's Friend doesn't tan you, it causes your body to tan itself. In fact, when you spray it on, you won't see any color because there isn't any in it. That's why it doesn't look fake like a lot of others but there are "secrets" to getting the best, most natural looking tan with it.

Before you spray, make sure your skin is clean and exfoliated.

Use a regular wash cloth, loofah or anything else you might already like to exfoliate with. I discovered this helps speed up the process because it starts with new, fresh skin cells, not the old dead ones. Don't scrub so hard that you cause an abrasion. Just a nice firm scrub.

Exfoliate before using My Skin's Friend sunless tanner
There are two reasons for this.
  1. One, the organic tanner interacts with your skin to create the tanning process so the more fresh, clean skin it can contact (without oils or creams between) the faster, deeper and more even your tan will be.
  2. Secondly, dead skin cells tend to get darker than fresh cells and may cause some spotting so your outcome will be much more even once you properly clean and exfoliate your skin.

When your done, dry off and go to the next step.

I put plastic grocery store bags on my feet from the ankle down to keep the tops of my feet from getting tan from the falling mist.
    Some customers have told me that they apply a thin layer of cocoa butter or other natural lotion like MSF Sweet Potato, Melon Fresh or Honey & Aloe to theirs.
    My Skin's Friend sunless tanner prep
    They also apply to elbows and knees because those areas tend to get darker faster and the lotion acts to help avoid that.


      O.k. with those bases covered, it's time to apply the spray.

      It is much easier if you have a friend who can spray you but almost all of our customers report they spray it on themselves with little problem. It might take a little practice to perfect it but it's done every day.

      My Skin's Friend organic sunless tanner application

      I apply it to myself most of the time but when I can get my husband to do it, it is easier to maintain a more even coverage.

      VERY IMPORTANT. The main cause of streaks or runs is OVER SPRAYING.

      Because My Skin's Friend sunless tanner is clear (no colorants or staining chemicals), it is hard to tell where you've sprayed.

      For this reason, it is important to plan to cover in a methodical way to make sure you don't over spray and get runs or streaks.

       

       

      1. Do right leg, left leg to thigh front.
      2. Right arm, left arm front and sides.
      3. Abdomen front (pubic bone to under neck unless you want au natural all over tan).
      4. Then back from hairline to butt. Then back of left leg, back of right leg.  

      If you have someone applying the spray to you, have them hold the bottle about a foot from your body and spray evenly from side to side, making sure to get an even coat. Applying too much each time will cause runs and you don't want that or you'll have streaks. Just a very light coat works like magic.

      RUN REPAIR TIP!

      If you see a run or large droplets during or after spraying, don't panic. It can be fixed before the streak shows up.

      Once you've finished your third and final application for that day, simply let the last coat dry a few minutes and then apply an organic lotion to the entire area to blend the overspray into the rest of the area. In almost all cases, this will completely eliminate any spots or streaks and you'll wake up with a very nice, even, natural looking tan.

      Over spray also happens because you will swear you're not getting enough on you but I assure you that you are. We chose the very fine mister pump to make sure you get a very light application each time to prevent runs or streaks.

      When one coat dries (which is very quick and can be accelerated with a blow dryer set to cool), apply the next one until you've sprayed three consecutive coats in one treatment.  I know you won't feel like anything is happening but trust me, it is.

      Once the third coat is dry, you're ready to get dressed. My Skin's Friend tanner won't color hair or clothes so don't worry about having to cover your hair or having it rub off on your clothes or bed linens.

      Cover your whole body or the areas you want tan with that first coat and wait 3 minutes or so for it to dry. One of the things people love about it is that it dries very fast.

      Repeat this process no more than three days straight.

      Once you've done if for three days, STOP and wait for 48 hours for your tan to “mature” and show you the final shade. If you want to be darker, simply continue to apply it as above until you reach your ideal shade. Once that happens, you can usually maintain your tan with a once or twice a week application. Remember, you won't see the final results for 48 hours
      after the final coat.

      That's it! That's all you need to have a cool looking tan. And when people ask where you got your beautiful tan, tell 'em Tahiti!
