Giving Women Everywhere the Power to Say “No” to the Knife
This week we will be focusing on our “mugs”. That’s right, our faces. We are going to take a look at some things you can do for the gal who’s staring back at you in the mirror. Some of these techniques are down home remedies; some are a little more sophisticated; and some are so high tech that you will barely believe they are possible until you try them.
I’m sure most women have daydreamed in the mirror about what their face might look like after a face lift.
“Just a little lift there, just a pinch off here, maybe an eye job will do nicely, too.”
Listen real closely; you can almost hear the longing murmurs, the wishing groans, the slight sound of women’s fingers gently pulling up their neck skin all over the world. Let’s face it, we all want healthy, happy, and young-looking skin. And, we will do almost anything to get it…if you can afford it, that is. Yes, there are those who have and will enter the office of a plastic surgeon some time in their lives. I’m not going to bash the cosmetic surgery industry; that’s not my style. What I am going to do is share some alternatives to the knife. Follow us this week for five “No Surgery Face Lift” treatments that actually work.
The first DIY treatment that I just LOVE is one that has ancient roots in Eastern cultures. I have spoken about Body Reflexology in previous posts, but I didn’t really give you any details about using it for beauty. Though there are many other wonderful ways to get glowing, beautiful skin, (we will talk about them this week) this easy-to-do method gives you results without any cost. You read that right! It’s free…if you DIY. All you need is your fingers and a little time.
An Expert in the Field
I have used the method for “A Do-It-Yourself Face Lift at Home” as outlined in Mildred Carter’s book, Body Reflexology: Healing at Your Fingertips. I noticed a change in the firmness and look of my skin after only several treatments. Carter recommends the DIY method to anyone but says that it “works especially well for middle-aged women.” She also states that it is important to keep skin moisturized for maximum results.
The actual procedure is a little tricky the first time as there are many reflex points on the face that you have to find. It’s not something that you can do in five minutes right before work (then again, neither is getting drugged, cut, sewn back up, and recovered from surgery) . This is an investment of concentrated time for the betterment of your health and beauty. I use it as part of the “me time” I allow myself a couple times a week. We are worth it, ladies.
How to Get Started
Other than me typing out the entire chapter right here on the blog, I think the best way for you to get this information is to buy or borrow the book yourself.
6 Good Reasons Why You NEED to Buy That Book
• You can take your time with the procedure.
• You will also get to take advantage of the other wonderful reflexology treatments covered in the book. For example, the one for sagging breasts is probably the best thing I’ve ever done for my “girls”.
• There’s a treatment for enhancing libido.
• There’s a treatment for beautiful hair.
• It will pay for itself after one self-treatment.
• It can help with that icky stuff that happens when you go through menopause.
I’m not going to beg you to buy the book; Amazon doesn’t pay associates that much. It’s just a way for you to get really great skin and a tighter face that doesn’t nearly fall off when you bend over. It’s up to you. You decide. I won’t badger you about it, anymore. No, not me.
If you don’t care for this post about reflexology, you will just have to join us tomorrow for another “No Surgery Face Lift” tip. You could just subscribe so you don’t miss anything. Friday’s post will blow you away! Be well-be beautiful.
