Jeunesse: Giving People The Gift Of Youth

As we age, we try our best to hold onto some resemblance of our youthful days. With age comes knowledge, experience and a host of opportunities. But unfortunately, our bodies seem to take a toll from the amount that we engage in. Bringing back ones youthful self isn’t just about turning the clock around. It is a holistic principle of feeling good inside and out. And one company working around that idea is Jeunesse.

 

The Jeunesse Story

Founded by Randy Ray and Wendy Lewis, Jeunesse started out as an idea to give people something that would help them once again feel youthful. They started thinking about this opportunity when they had reached the age of retirement, experiencing the intent of wanting to regain their youthful selves once again.

Having a tremendous experience as entrepreneurs, Randy and Wendy knew that it was possible to build a company on these foundations. Through their range of products, Jeunesse is now being able to give people what they are so actively trying to seek as they age. Through their range of products, they help uplift the body and mind, giving back the youthful feeling that has faded away with time.

The supplements and products that are put forth by the company are exclusive to them and can’t be found anywhere else other than the Jeunesse website.

Get Yourself Ready for the Summer

So the Summer is almost upon us, and yet we are still so used to the gloomy weather, we aren’t even ready for the sun yet. But don’t worry, it’s not as difficult to prepare yourself as you may think. It’s actually very simple as long as you have the tools you need to stay fresh, flirty, and on fire.

You can expect to change your regular routine into something more fun and colourful now that the sun is making an appearance.

Here’s what you need to do.   

 

The nails

You may still have that leftover burgundy covering your nails because there’s been no sun – making us all feel like we’re stuck in the Autumn/Winter season. But that just isn’t the case anymore, so get rid of that grungy shade and choose a lighter, more playful coloured nail polish to suit your environment. You can never go wrong with pinks, peaches, and oranges, whether they be pale or fluorescent, so don’t be afraid to command some attention. You will also want to make sure that your cuticles have been taken care of too, because people will notice and it’s never a good look.

 

The eyes

The fun thing about the Summer is that you don’t need to go all out on the eyes like you may have done a few months ago. A simple sheen or shimmer over the eyelid will reflect the sun nicely and give the appearance of your eyes being bright and present. If this is a little too subtle for you, you can add a slight flick at the end with some liquid eyeliner if you need a bit more drama. Or you can merely stick some lashes on without any other business going on. It will keep them looking open and sultry, without having to do much work.

 

The skin

Depending on your skin type will determine what you can do, but the lighter the coverage, the better. Bear in mind the weather will get hot and you may sweat. Now of course there are tricks for this with setting mists and translucent powder, but you might not want to be that heavy. So a simple BB cream is always nice, evening out your complexion without too much product. Understandably, some of you may not have this option due to acne or dark blemishes, but colour correctors can do a lot of the work for you so you don’t necessarily need a full coverage foundation.

 

The additions

Highlighter and blusher are absolute must-haves. Opt for a liquid highlighter rather than a powder. You will barely need any product and you can easily apply it with a fingertip and just dab it onto the tops of your cheekbones, the arch of your brow, down the centre of your nose, and on your cupids bow for a radiant glow. Pair that up with a little blush on the apples of your cheeks and you will be ready to hit the runway.

How are you getting your skin ready for summer?

Are your skincare products ruining your skin?

My skin has changed dramatically since I had my babies. I had my twins 3 years ago, but my skin is still yet to go back to how it use to be. I have had a hard time dealing with the changes in my body and skin. The pregnancy and the parenting books did not prepare me for the many changes I experienced and still experiencing. I guess there is no way to fully prepare yourself for all these changes, because we all have different experiences.

I went many shades darker, and I am still dealing with a lot of hyper pigmentation. I battle with pimples and spots every now and again, and my skin has just been up and down. I took it as one of those things and tried not to worry too much about it, but it became more and more difficult to ignore.

I found it hard to understand how and why a 30 year old woman would still be dealing with teenage skin issues. I didn’t think twice about my skincare products, and the fact that I may have outgrown them. And that they may be the cause of my skincare misery.

As a beauty blogger, I review a lot of skincare products every now and again. Some of the products become products I swear by, some become products I use on regular basis, and some become products I never use again. I also have skincare products I have used for donkey years, long before I even thought of blogging, and still use, well not anymore.

I have used a particular brand (F&W) for my lotion, body cream, serum and soap for over 15 years now. I have used this brand in my daily skincare routine for this long, and only just realised that I have outgrown it.

All the products now do nothing for my skin, so I have stopped using them all, but I only just realised or should say, it only just clicked, that the soap I have been using exfoliates my skin, in other words, it is an exfoliating soap. Now this was ok to use 15 years ago, even though I believe exfoliating your face everyday is a no-no regardless of your age, but it is definitely not a great idea for a woman my age.

Here are a few reasons why you should not exfoliate your skin every day

  1. It would strip the skin moisture (lipid) barrier layer resulting in dehydration, dryness, flaking, redness and inflammation.
  2. It causes your skin to age quickly due to chronic and prolonged inflammation.
  3. It destroys healthy cells.
  4. It causes the stimulation of melanin activity possibly resulting in an increase of hyper-pigmentation/brown spots and patches.
  5. It could irritate the skin, leading to acne and other skin problems.

 

These are just a few of the reasons why exfoliating your skin regularly is a bad idea. I have had to learn the hard way, and my skin is still recovering from the many years of daily exfoliating.

I would advise you to go through your skincare products to make sure they are doing what you need them to do. I have done that and changed my entire skincare products. I will be sharing more on that in a few weeks so look out for the post.

Thanks for reading and have a lovely day.
