Remove animal fats from your diet, and fill up on fresh vegetables. Eat colon-cleansing foods, and keep the flow moving. Alcohol, cigarettes and narcotics will age you faster than having children. How fresh and healthy you look actually depends more on your diet and lifestyle choices than on the colors you slather on your skin and hair. And who said gray hair wasnt beautiful (and cheaper)? Now Less is more. If you wear less makeup, not only are you reducing the 168 ingredients per day, youre ending the cosmetics vicious cycle. The more makeup you wear, the more you distress your skin. Foundation makeup is clowny (sorry), and if you are compelled to wear blush, get some natural pink in your cheeks with some walks in the fresh air.

Details will be given of new EUregulations, which are increasingly perceived as a barrier to market entry by non-European brands.

Always remember that you are what you eat, and so, obtaining the highest quality food should be our #1 priority in living and attaining a healthy life. This is a timeless truth.

Take off your mask from time to time. Youll like what you see. Finally, consume commercial-free media. All advertising stalks your insecurities, particularly ads in fashion magazines. Everything we take in through our senses is food; its either nourishing or toxic. Being bombarded by computerized beauty images is a diet of lies. An aside to women: The exterior doesnt matter so why not change it? But cosmetics dance on a troublesome razor. Women will say it enhances their natural beauty or covers a flaw or two. But this is a social construction. Advertising and socialization whisper that in order to be beautiful a woman needs augmentation.

It may be cliche, but if you have to have a degree in chemistry to pronounce the ingredient, stay away, said Sayer Ji, director of GreenMedInfo.com and co-author of The Cancer Killers. Ji stressed that consumers need to be at least five times more aware of a skin care products toxicity than that of food. Once you apply a cream, powder, deodorant, soap, shampoo (keep going), they are not filtered by the bodys digestive system. They penetrate the skin and hit the fat stores and blood and lymphatic systems, he said. Check out ewg.org. Its Skin Deep database rates thousands of products for toxicity. While you look up your cosmetic collection, consider a few tidbits: Sunscreen is deceptive. Sunscreen doesnt prevent all skin damage, and a higher SPF can create a false sense of security that lengthens your time in the sun. Consider staying out of the sun between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.
