We're all concerned and confused about the COVID 19 outbreak. Here are some ideas that'll help put you in the best possible health to resist it if you come in contact with someone who is infected.

You have more power over your health than you think

If you spend any time at all in front of the television set, you’re likely to see a myriad of commercials promoting one new drug after another. It’s like the fashion industry. Last year’s hit drug is soooo not cool. Now they’re even promoting adding a drug to the one you are taking to make it more effective. It’s sorta like adding a scarf to update last year’s suit . . . except for all the side effects.

These commercials along with those promoting night time cold remedies, corn removers, exercise and weight loss programs and a long list of other things usually end with, “be sure and ask your doctor if this is right for you.” And there you have one of the major problems with our entire healthcare system.

We have been brain washed into believing that we are not smart enough or educated enough to know what is good for us. According to commercials for two of the most heavily advertised erectile dysfunction drugs, we even have to ask our doctor if our heart is healthy enough to have sex. Really?

Can we really trust the CDC to protect you?

Most of us have more than we can handle day to day with our jobs, family and other activities. We have government to take care of those things that are just too complicated or far reaching like the sudden outbreak and spread of the corona virus.

The Centers for Disease Control was established for situations such as this. Unfortunately, like so many government entities, the disease of pCenters for Disease Controlpolitics has infected the CDC so badly that they sometimes seem incapable of separating what is politically expedient from what is best for the United States.

From what I've seen so far, I don't have much confidence in them and their ability to protect us from the mystery surrounding the corona virus including how it is spread, what can be done to protect ourselves from it and what treatment method or methods are going to work to cure someone of the disease when they become infected. Hopefully some of the old drugs they're testing will prove effective and this will all soon be just a story to tell our children and grandchildren.

On the positive side, the COVID 19 scare has raised awareness nationwide regarding threats to our health. But statistically, the common flu poses a much bigger threat to your health right now than COVID 19. The flu kills between 3,000 and 50,000 people every year just in the United States. 

Give your body a fighting chance by doing very simple things

We’ve all heard that the best defense is a good offense. That’s not just a cool saying, it’s the truth and I’m going to share some things you can do to help make sure you switch to a good offense.

If you’ve seen fights on TV, you know that a strong person can fight off several opponents at once. This is especially true of those who’ve prepared their body’s defense mechanisms by training and exercise.

Bruce Lee poseImagine that your body is Bruce Lee, the famous martial arts master. Now, imagine that Bruce Lee’s fictitious brother, Me Lee has never done any of the things his brother has to prepare his defensive techniques. Or maybe he’s done just enough to be dangerous. Which one would prefer to have as your body guard?

But imagine Bruce Lee putting on a suit. Over the suit he wears an overcoat. But that overcoat is wet. So is his suit. In fact, he is soaked to the bone. But it gets worse. In the coat pockets, he begins to put small amounts of pebbles. One by one he fills each of the pockets with pebbles. One didn’t feel so heavy but now he’s barely able to walk under the weight of the wet clothes and his pockets full of pebbles. Get the picture?

Now, imagine that as he walks down the street burdened with all this that he is attacked by just an ordinary mugger. How do you think that confrontation will turn out?

Chances are that Bruce Lee will still provide a good fight because underneath it all, he is still Bruce Lee. But, you have to agree that his defense system is compromised. His defense system is too burdened under the weight all those layers of wet clothes and pockets full of pebbles to put up a very effective fight.

Fighting one opponent is hard enough. If there is more than one, he could very well wind up taking a beating or even worse, die at the hands of what would otherwise just be a good sparing opportunity. Same man. Same situation. Different defense status.

Our bodies are amazing creations. Trillions of cells working in harmony to keep us fit, energetic and most of all—alive. In fact, our body’s number one goal is to stay alive. That’s why people can go through some horrendous health challenges and still survive. There is nothing stronger than the will to live.

Start unburdening your immune defense system right now

The term “you are what you eat” is easy to understand. If you’re improving the quality and quantity of your food intake to improve your health, good for you. There’s another area you can make some great health strides and if you’re like most people, you’ve never given it a second thought.

Stop putting chemicals on your skin

To most, it seems perfectly logical that what we eat becomes part of our bodies. But what we put on our skin also gets into our bodies and you already know that our skin is our largest organ.

Think about that. We are literally covered with skin. So, does it make sense to cover your skin with chemicals that wind up getting into our cells and blood?

These chemicals are like the wet clothes with pockets full of pebbles added one by one described above. They don’t seem that significant when we’re adding them one by one but over time they begin to weigh down and put stress on your body’s defenses.

That lotion you spread all over your body soaks into your skin. If it is full of chemicals, your body sees them as foreign substances and as such, must deal with them. The more of these chemicals that are added to the body through shampoos, lotions, cosmetics, sunscreens and other topical products, the more the body’s defense mechanisms are diverted to help dispose of the continual stream of toxic materials instead of being free to fight viruses and bacteria when it shows up.

Over time, the body’s immune system becomes so overloaded and overwhelmed with the amount of toxic materials, it becomes like a computer with a lot of programs running at once. It either slows way down or in some extreme cases, shuts down completely. That’s when the viruses and bacteria see their chance and rush in.

This is why some people seem to be sick a lot and catch everything that comes along and some people never seem to be sick. Both people are being exposed to the exact same environment but one has a stronger defense system than the other.

You can start right now eliminating a large chunk of toxins from your body

Dr. Richard Shulze is a hero of mine. I've been a follower of his since the early 1990s. While at one of his seminars in Santa Monica he said that when a patient first comes to see him, they invariably ask, "what's wrong with me doctor Shulze." He said his response is, "how the hell do I know what's wrong with you if you don't know yourself." 

His point is that we all have clues as to why we're in the shape we're in--whether it is good or not so good. The first thing he tells patients is to stop doing what they've done to get sick and the disease will begin to reverse itself.

My wife and I have been practicing healthy habits for two decades after experiencing illnesses. Finding health foods is hard enough but finding healthy skin and hair care products seemed just about impossible.

Although it is getting easier to find healthier skin and hair care products, we decided those we were finding still weren’t as healthy as they needed to be. That’s why we launched My Skin’s Friend. We were determined to not only create organic, skin friendly products, but to also provide education to those who, like us, are searching for ways to help our bodies become healthier and more energetic as we mature.

There are a lot of products on the market now that use terms in their names to make us think they are organic and safe. Unfortunately, that is often done to fool people into thinking they are doing the right thing for their bodies when in fact, it is just language used by the manufacturer to take advantage of the current buzz words or phrases. You still have to read and research to know for sure that you’re getting the healthiest product available in that category.

We take the guesswork out of skin and hair care buying

Every products begins with whole, organic food. There are never any chemicals used either in our extraction methods or in any of our product formulas.

For instance, years were spent trying to create a skin peel that would remove dead skins cells from the face and provide a basis from which our other nutrient rich skin products could nourish the new cells and create a more youthful appearance.

We researched competitive products that claimed to be natural citrus based peels but discovered that in the fine print there was always some form of acid.

So if you’re currently using a peel for that claims to be organic, please read the label carefully and make sure there are no chemicals or acids.

Do the same with your body lotion, sunscreens, moisturizers, shampoos and everything else you are currently putting on your skin and hair. (Remember, your scalp is skin too!)

This is just one example.

What does this have to do with the cornona virus, flu virus or even the common cold virus?

Simple. The fewer foreign substances your body’s immune system has to fight, ward off or somehow eliminate through your elimination processes, the more it can focus on strengthening its defense against viruses and other pathogens.

Putting organic “food nutrients” on your skin vs chemicals means you are providing your body with things it can actually use to become even stronger and more resilient to all potential viral attacks. Survival of the fittest is a commonly known fact. You can become more fit simply by changing the substances your put on your skin. How much simpler could we want it?

Resolve right now to become your skin’s friend by feeding it lotions, shampoos, skin tighteners, moisturizers and tanning products that are made from whole, organic food. Your body recognizes and uses foods for its defenses. Give it what it needs and it will give you a healthier life.

...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.
 
My Skin's Friend sunless tanner prep

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!
