“Summertime anti-aging tip”
With the wonderful weather and longer days, most of us are spending more time in the sun. Protecting our skin with a good full spectrum sunscreen is one of the most effective anti-aging tools you can use.
One of the most versatile, “natural” sunscreen lines is Arcona Skin Care’s Reozone. They offer 3 different full spectrum sunscreen formulas for face & body ranging from SPF 20 – 40 in both transparent and lightly tinted without the harmful chemicals many sunscreens include.
My favorite is Reozone SPF 40 with a universal skin tone, light tint. This product has a wonderful mousse like consistency that glides onto your skin for superb coverage while camouflaging minor skin pigmentation and evening skin tone. It also contains sodium hyaluronate to soothe and restore skin.

One of the simplest anti-aging products you can add to your toolbox is to invest in a pure silk pillow case.
We all spend 6 plus hours a day for our entire lives sleeping. The repeated weight of your head pushing your face against a pillow case that grabs the skin or bunches up will create “sleep creases” that do not disappear overtime and that will actually worsen existing lines.
The slippery texture of natural silk allows your skin and hair to glide over the surface when you change positions during the night making for more restful sleep and reduced skin drag. This luxurious addition also helps keep your head and face cooler which can induce a deeper state of sleep. Best of all, you wake up free of the dreaded “bed head”.
The most economical, high quality silk pillow cases I have found come from “Feeling Pampered”. They offer several sizes and styles in lush fashion colors as well as in 100% natural undyed.

With 21st century hectic lifestyles, “on the go” food choices and nutritional deficiencies prevalent in the soil our food is grown in, most of us need some additional support in the form of supplements, particularly minerals in order to stay healthy.
Two products I most frequently recommend to clients are Pure Essence “Ionic Fizz Calcium Plus” either with or without the additional vitamin D and “Magnesium Plus” by the same company.
The Ionic Fizz line of products come in many delicious Stevia sweetened flavors and provide one of the most easily absorbed calcium/magnesium with support mineral formulas I’ve come across.
The slightly higher ratio of magnesium to calcium in the “Calcium Plus” formula assists bone health, helps to quell sweet cravings and aids in promoting general health.
If you are under stress, indulge frequently in sugar or alcohol, are experiencing sleep disturbances, or signs of hormonal imbalance, adding additional magnesium in the form of “Magnesium Plus” can be a great help to putting you on the road to health.
Pure Essence products are available through most natural foods stores. For a list of retailers in your area or to buy direct contact:
