The buzz these days is all about an anti-inflammatory diet—and for good reason. Following an anti-inflammatory diet is an excellent way to improve your overall health and combat the signs of aging. Many doctors tout this type of diet because it can reduce bloodtriglycerides, decrease the risk of high blood pressure and prevent cardiovascular disease. Anti-inflammatory diets have been shown to improve physical recovery time and reduce the risk of many chronic illnesses and diseases. Eating anti-inflammatory foods is also an excellent complement to a good skincare program and regimen of antiaging facial exercises.
While there are many different anti-inflammatory diets to choose from, there are several types of food that can be found in most. Most doctors recommend avoiding processed foods and those high in refined sugars and simple carbs. Read on for a few foods that will help you fight inflammation in your body.
Proper hydration definitely helps your body fight off inflammation and flush out the toxins. If you get bored simply drinking water, switch it up with lemon water, honey water and green tea to up your antioxidant ante.
2. Leafy greens
Dark leafy greens such as spinach, broccoli, collard greens and kale contains high levels of dietary fiber and a rich content of vitamins and minerals that fight inflammation, such as iron, calcium and an array of phytochemicals.
3. Fatty fish.
Oily fish that are high in omega-43 fatty acids are a great choice for your health, skin and waistline. Try to eat several servings of salmon, mackerel, tuna or sardines each week.
Loaded with fiber, vitamin e and some healthy fat, nuts are a great way to satiate your diet and reduce inflammation. Almonds, Brazil nuts, cashews and walnuts are all great choices.
5. Whole grains
Swap out white bread, pasta and rice for whole-grains that are fiber-rich. They will fill you up without spiking your blood sugar levels like “white” breads and other products.
Bell peppers are the perfects example of colorful veggies that increase your antioxidant consumption and reduce inflammation.
Berries are loaded with vitamin C and antioxidants that can significantly decrease inflammation. The darker the berry, the higher the antioxidant content, but all are good choices.

Masking is trending these days, but it’s been a strategy I’ve always promoted as a complement to my facial exercises and advanced skin care products. It helps your other products absorb better and work more efficiently so that you maximize your overall benefits. Masks also give you immediate results in their respective areas of specialty. For example, if you use my Face Lift to Go mask, you’ll see toning, firming and a healthy glow with your first use.
Here are three reasons to start masking now.
1. Masks Go Deep
Applying masks takes cleansing to another level by removing excess dirt and impurities that can sometimes linger on and underneath the skin’s surface. Masks can prevent acne and breakouts by drawing out impurities and unclogging pores. A good mask like my Face Lift to Go eliminates the dead skin cells that build up on the skin, making it look dull and clogging pores. This immediately leads to brighter looking skin and a healthy, youthful glow.
2. Masks Boost Your Normal Skin Care Routine
Applying masks on a regular basis makes the rest of your skin care products work better and can even boost the results of facial exercises. Deep cleansing and exfoliating masks like Face Lift to Go improves absorption of the products you use, making them work faster and better. Masks can also stimulate circulation, causing your skin’s blood vessels to expand. This results in improved skin tone and a radiant glow.
3. Therapeutic Effects
One of the benefits of masking is that it gives you a chance to relax and be present. Set some time aside and turn your mask into a home spa experience. Light candles, run a hot bath with Epsom salts, play some relaxing music and simply indulge while you treat your skin. If time is short, at least lie down for a few minutes while the mask does its magic.

If you want to maximize the results of your skincare program and facial exercises, then you need to take make the most of sleep. Our skin cells work to repair and regenerate when we sleep, so there’s no better time to boost your skin care regimen. Read my three tips for fighting the signs of aging while you sleep.
1. Optimize Your Products
Since your cells repair and regenerate at night while you sleep, your products have more time to absorb and will work better. Use a rich hydrating product like my Ultra Hyaluronic Cream or Advanced Anti-Aging Cream all over your face, neck and décolletage. Another excellent product to use at night is our extraordinary Spin Trap Crystal Serum, which provides the ultimate in moisture, especially for the delicate under eye area. All of these products are superb complements to a daily routine of facial exercises.
2. Shed the Excess
\Nighttime is the deal time to apply a retinol product to shed dead skin cells and stimulate collagen production. My Retinol Skin Conditioner gently but effectively exfoliates those cells that clog pores and dull our skin. With nightly use, you’ll reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while imparting a youthful glow. You can boost results by applying eye cream and moisturizer over the retinol for maximum absorption.
3. Address the Full Package
Don’t stop at your face—apply products to your entire body, when possible. Moisturize your neck and décolletage with a product specifically designed for that area or your face products. Several times a week, apply a rich hand cream to both your hands and feet and cover with gloves and socks for the ultimate hydrating treatment. If you can, apply retinol to your hands, arms and legs, with special attention to the often-dry elbows and knee areas. If you dry brush regularly and treat the skin all over your body, your skin will glow and appear firmer.

From facial exercises and wearing sunscreen to diet and exercise, there are many ways to look younger without going under the knife. Looking youthful and fabulous is a result of how well you take care of yourself. Follow a few of my tips below and you’ll look and feel more vibrant and beautiful every day without resorting to plastic surgery.
1. Do Facial Exercises Daily
One of the quickest ways to look younger without cosmetic procedures is to do your facial exercises daily. I recommend my clients do Facercise twice a day for best results. Doing facial exercises reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, tones, lifts and boosts circulation to give you a healthy glow. If time is an issue, there is an eight-minute superset in our Ultimate Facercise DVD package that gets you finished faster.
As we age, the corners of our mouth turn down, making us look grumpy. You can combat this by doing Facercise, but also by smiling regularly. It lifts your skin, freshens up your face and helps reprogram the corners of your mouth. Plus, it makes you appear friendlier and more approachable. Smile at work, whenever you go out and even when you answer the phone—you’ll sound happier to the person on the other end.
3. Use a Retinol Product
Next to sunscreen, retinol may be the most important product in your skin care regimen. It acts as an antioxidant, wielding its power against free radicals and repairing UV damage. Retinol quickly exfoliates dead skin cells, speeds cell turnover to even out skin tone, promotes collagen production, reduces the appearance of wrinkles and unclogs pores. Try my Retinol Skin Conditioner, which is gentle but extremely effective.
4. Adopt a Straight Posture
When you stand up straight, you look and feel younger and more confident. If you’re having issues with your posture, do Pilates or see a physical therapist to correct your issues. A healthy spine can improve the quality of your life tenfold.
5. Whiten Your Teeth
One of the most common telltale signs of aging is stained or yellowing teeth. With so many options at your fingertips, this should never be an issue. You can get your teeth professionally whitened, do it yourself at home and use whitening toothpaste and mouthwash on a daily basis.

Even though the holidays are over, winter is still in effect—even for those of us in Southern California. Winter weather can be harsh for our skin, which means we need to step up our skin care programs. Add these winter skin care tips to your regimen to boost the effects of your facial exercises and protect it from the elements.
1. Tweak your exfoliation routine
Sloughing away dead skin cells is extra important during winter months. Find a gentle but effective exfoliation product to remove dulling dead skin and help speed up skin cell regeneration. For best results, do a Face Lift to Go and a Body Lifting Mask every week.
2. Dry brush daily
Help promote the shedding of dead skin cells from your body by dry brushing every day. It also boosts circulation to make your skin glow.
3. Cool it down
As great as a hot bath or shower feels this time of year, hot water wreaks havoc on our skin. It strips the skin of its natural oils, which sets the stage for serious dryness and weakens the dermis’ natural protective barrier. Wash your face and take showers with lukewarm water.
4. Moisturize your face and hands
Low humidity coupled with colder temperatures can draw moisture away from the skin, leaving it dry, tight and extra sensitive. Keep your skin moisturized with rich products like my Ultra Hyaluronic Cream, which attracts moisture.
5. Enhance your body lotion
The skin on your body is just as susceptible to dryness this time of year. Increase the potency of your lotion by adding a rich emollient oil like my Nourishing E Oil to it. Your skin will be softer and more supple.
6. Pat it down
When you get out of the shower, don’t wipe away the water. Instead, dab at the excess water and lock the moisture in with lotion, oil or moisturizer immediately. You only have about three minutes to take advantage of post-shower hydration.

Instead, prepare snacks in advance so that you won’t make unhealthy choices. Have fruit and veggies at your desk at work, stash bags of nuts like cashews, walnuts or almonds in your purse, and even have a low sugar protein bar on hand for those days when time is scarce.

In this day and age, people want hacks for everything, even when it comes to facial exercises. We want things to be easier to achieve and results to be better.

Here are some antiaging and beauty hacks to look younger and more beautiful, while combatting the signs of aging.
1. Quit using a straw.
When you consistently purse your lips to sip through a straw, you’re causing wrinkles to form around your mouth. Simply drink straight from a cup or bottle to fend off those unsightly lines.
2. Stop smoking.
This is the ultimate shortcut when it comes to better skin and slower aging. Smoking causes wrinkles around the lips and mouth, as well as crow’s feet from squinting to avoid getting smoke in your eyes. It also clogs pores and slows down cellular repair. Let’s not forget those old-looking, yellow teeth is causes.
3. Get tinted windows.
Research shows that commuters develop the signs of aging more quickly on the left side of their face. Our driver’s side gets much more exposure to the sun, even when the window is closed. Tint the windows of your car to help prevent this kind of damage
4. Use a retinol product.
Retinol is critical for fighting the signs of aging, including hyperpigmentation, age spots, wrinkles and fine lines. It exfoliates dead skin cells to reveal fresher looking skin and impart a healthy glow. Try my Retinol Cream Conditioner for gentle but effective results.
5. Eat an antioxidant-rich diet.
Antioxidants help you fight the signs of aging and boost your overall health. They fight the inflammation that causes skin damage, pain and the development of chronic illnesses and diseases. Some excellent sources include grapes, dark green vegetables, artichokes, kidney beans, pecans, sweet potatoes, squash, apples, prunes, black plums, green tea and dark chocolate. Berries are also ideal sources—the darker the color, the higher the antioxidant content. Try everything from cranberries, gojiberries and strawberries to blackberries, blueberries and raspberries.

The New Year is here—and it’s the perfect time to recommit and upgrade your beauty regime. By now you know that facial exercises can turn back the clock, but are you doing them regularly? Instead of focusing on giving things up for New Year’s resolutions, we recommend adding effective practices to your current anti-aging regimen. Read on for some excellent techniques that you should incorporate now to combat the signs of aging. Within a few weeks, you’ll look younger and feel more confident.
1. Exfoliate regularly.
It’s important to remove those dead skin cells that clog your pores and dull your skin. Exfoliation several times per week will help you develop a healthy glow, combat breakouts and keep skin from looking dry and aged. Our Face Lift to Go enzymatic mask is an excellent choice for weekly exfoliation—it also tightens and tones the skin.
2. Wear gloves when you wash dishes.
Wear dishwashing gloves whenever your hands go near the dishes or cleaning supplies. Hands can be a dead giveaway when it comes to age, so protect them from the harsh, drying chemicals found in many cleaning products.
3. Wear sunscreen all over.
We know you’re applying sunscreen every day, rain or shine, but are you wearing it on your body too? At a minimum, apply to your neck, hands and décolletage. For best results, apply to your arms and legs as well.
4. Add Vitamin C to your program.
Vitamin C is one of the most powerful antioxidants and skin brighteners you can find. Try my High Density C Serum, which protects against dangerous UV rays, repairs damage and boosts radiance. You may also want to take an Ester-C supplement every day for optimal results.
5. Get the right amount of sleep.
Sleep is when our cells restore and regenerate, so take advantage of this time. Get the right amount you need every night and apply antiaging products like my Retinol Skin Conditioner to enhance the repair taking place.
6. Do facial exercises every day.
This should be a no-brainer, but if you haven’t started your facial exercises, the time is now! Get the Ultimate Facercise DVD and the Ultimate Facercise book for step-by-step instructions for following this life-changing protocol. There is even an 8-minute super set included in the system for when you are short on time.

The big night is here! While some of us prefer a good night in with loved ones, many others will be out on the town at parties, special events and other festivities. Either way, New Year’s Eve day is an excellent day to pamper yourself with beauty treatments. Spending this time on yourself will help you glow for the evening and start your year off right. If you’ve been doing your facial exercises regularly, you’ll be sure to look your very best for whatever you have planned to ring in the New Year.
Here are five tips to help you sparkle this New Year’s Eve.
1. Wake up and exercise.
Don’t fall into the cliché of waiting for the New Year to exercise. A good workout will boost circulation, provide energy for your day and give you a youthful glow.
2. Hydrate properly all day.
Drink lots of honey or lemon water all day long to flush your system and plump up your skin. White and green tea are also good beverages to drink throughout the day. Both of these teas rev your metabolism and boost your antioxidant intake. If you plan to imbibe, make sure to alternate alcoholic beverages with water.
3. Dry brush and do No Lipo Lipo.
This should be part of your regular regimen. If not, what better day to start? Both of these practices stimulate your lymphatic system, which flushes the toxins from your body. They will also boost your glow!
4. Do a Face Lift to Go.
This enzymatic mask is unrivalled when it comes to lifting, toning and glowing. Take 45 minutes and relax while you do this incredible treatment. You’ll look like you just spent a day at the spa when you’re finished.

Even though the holidays are packed with temptation, weight gain can be avoided this time of year. In fact, some of my clients who do No Lipo Lipo body sculpting treatments lose weight during the Christmas and Hanukah seasons. If that’s the track you want to be on, use some of my holiday diet tips below.
1. Be the host.
One of the best ways to ensure there will be some healthy options on the menu is to host the big holiday meal or party yourself. Mix up the traditional dishes with some low carb recipes and toss up a big healthy salad to start with.
2. Bring a dish.
If you can’t be the host, then offer to bring a healthy dish. At least you know there will be one option that you can enjoy guilt-free.
3. Don’t go to a holiday party on an empty stomach.
If you arrive at a party hungry, you will probably overeat. Have a light but filling snack about a half an hour before you arrive so that you won’t lose control at the buffet table. Choose something with protein or fiber to rev your metabolism and keep your digestive system busy.
4. Only hit the spread once.
Eat slowly and only fill your plate once. Tempting as seconds may be, they really should be avoided. It takes your stomach around 20 minutes to let your brain know that it’s full. If you eat slowly enough you’ll be too full to think about seconds.
Proper hydration flushes the toxins from your system, fills you up and helps your skin glow. Drink lots of water and tea throughout your day and at your holiday festivities. Add lemon or ginger for added health benefits.
6. Avoid leftovers.
Give away all your leftovers. You don’t need to be faced with temptation every single day until the New Year rolls around.
7. Do No Lipo Lipo.
One of the best ways to keep your body looking its very best is to do No Lipo Lipo body sculpting treatments, It will boost your lymphatic system, lift and tighten your skin, and boost your weight loss efforts.
