My first SKIN CARE video.

This will make you laugh!  My night time regime to keep my skin healthy & bright. It includes sticking my face into a very cold bowl of water!  Hope you enjoy. Many thanks to Harriet Jackman for shooting & editing the video! Details on the 2 products are below.

So why plunging your face in cold water?  Apart from the Paul Newman factor, latest research shows that it stimulates the Vagus Nerve (the longest nerve in the body that is a bit like the Captain of the parasympathetic nervous system) & therefore our health. The list of possible benefits of activating this important nerve is awesome, so well worth a try. Do it for 30 seconds and, if you're like me, do one side then the other.  I don't like it up my nose & in my eyes 'cause I'm a woose!

WHY ACTIVATING THE VAGUS NERVE IS GOOD FOR YOU:

  • Turn on neurogenesis, helping our brains sprout new brain cells.

  • Rapidly turn off the stress, hyper-arousal, and fight/flight via the relaxation response.

  • Sharpen our memories.

  • Fight inflammatory disease.

  • Help you resist high blood pressure.

  • Block the hormone cortisol and other oxidizing agents that age and deteriorate the brain and body

  • Block systemic (body-wide) inflammation – a major factor behind ageing and poor health.

  • Help us overcome depression and anxiety.

  • Help us sleep better.

  • Raise levels of human growth hormone.

  • Help us overcome insulin resistance.

  • Turn down allergic responses.

  • Lower chances of getting stress and tension headaches.

  • Help spare and grow our mitochondria- this is a key to maintaining optimal energy levels and not harming our DNA and RNA.

  • Affect our overall ability to live longer, healthier, and more energetic lives.

So, I'm sure you'll agree, it's certainly worth a try if you gain all those health benefits.

The two products I use nightly are: Luminesce, which is only available through a Jeunesse distributor, mine is bought through a family member who is a distributor in the UK, although I have just found it on Amazon. (It could be old product though)

I will post photos at the end of 3 months, but so far am very impressed with the improvement in skin tone, lines & wrinkles.

The other product I use nightly is a new rave product recommended by Space NK, called Luna byRiley Sunday.  What a great name!  I couldn't find Luna on his site but his stuff looks good and very well researched.  It contains advanced retinol & all sorts of natural anti-oxidant ingredients that repair sun damage etc. And it's blue!  Love it.

You may not want to spend all that money on 2 products.  So recommend one or other initially, and please let me know how you get on! I think they are both great anti-ageing products.
