Finding Beauty




I don't know if my readers know that I was a free lance make up artist in film, TV and Bridal and skin specialist for Biotherm.

I have always looked way younger than my years. The number one cause of aging is stress.
I all of a sudden noticed my eyes, dark circles and tiny wrinkles, it was like I drastically aged in two months.

I decided to start with my good friend who worked in the industry of fakeness. My friend worked in the world of fakeness but really believes in everything else first.

My friend Samantha, started me on medical skincare-shit that works. Dr Ojui is what I started with. My friend tells me not to start with retinal till I try the medicinal skincare first.

Using this skin line,  is quite the procedure! you are required use twice a day and a series of ointments and cleaning of the face morning and night that takes up to a whole 15 minutes, I counted cause I really don't have a lot of time-but to look better, you have to suffer I guess. This means getting up a 630 just to do your face rather then 7am.

 After two weeks I did notice my pores have shrunk, my completion is more vibrant, and my bagged out eyes are still there.

I was invited to a Botox party at Body Bar in Coquitlum- the place looks and feels like a place for celebrities, they do laser, contour..all sorts of good stuff, they have a dental cosmetic surgeon down the way who does all there Botox (no fillers yet)

They do almost everything to replace surgery procedures. I was in heaven as I walked through the door and received my champagne and OJ, free services galore for the party! I got to try the a machine on my face,that felt like a wonderful hot stone massage, apparently this works in deep tissue for 6 months and rejuvenates the deep tissue to produce collagen.

I had a assessment on Botox, I was shocked at what Botox can actually do above the face, you can have it so your eyebrows are a little raised-forehead free of wrinkles and it eliminates crows feet completely. I need 40 units. average 280-300 dollars, lasts 6 months-1yr, depending on who you are. I am stoked! I watched the doctor do the injections on my friend, which took about 30 seconds with a miniature needle.

Mineral makeup was next, I guess foundation just adds to these wrinkles of mine and mineral make up was the way to go, so I went with Laura Merier-quite nice, gets rid of shine, no oily sheen as well.
So with all these body type of cleanses, vitamins, how does one know when to take what and when - I need a schedule. The most important part of all this is the yoga and gym..EKK, no time yet!

I have noticed that I am sleeping more than normal, like 10 hrs a day, not sure what that's about- I do think it has something to do with the past stress, sleeping before the busy.

I won a basket at the party! I was delighted!

The first product I researched in my basket was most interesting, and apparently you dissolve 5-20 tablets in water and drink it per day, on the bottle its says just to take 1-3 tablets 3 times a day. That is a lot of money seeing as the bottle is 44 dollars and holds only 90 tablets. This is the best article I found on Wheatgrass:
The Benefits of Wheatgrass

Excerpts from The Wheatgrass Book by Ann Wigmore

Increases red blood-cell count and lowers blood pressure. It cleanses the blood, organs and gastrointestinal tract of debris. Wheatgrass also stimulates metabolism and the body’s enzyme systems by enriching the blood. It also aids in reducing blood pressure by dilating the blood pathways throughout the body.
Stimulates the thyroid gland, correcting obesity, indigestion, and a host of other complaints.
Restores alkalinity to the blood. The juice's abundance of alkaline minerals helps reduce over-acidity in the blood. It can be used to relieve many internal pains, and has been used successfully to treat peptic ulcers, ulcerative colitis, constipation, diarrhea, and other complaints of the gastrointestinal tract.
Is a powerful detoxifier, and liver and blood protector. The enzymes and amino acids found in wheatgrass can protect us from carcinogens like no other food or medicine. It strengthens our cells, detoxifies the liver and bloodstream, and chemically neutralizes environmental pollutants.
Fights tumors and neutralizes toxins. Recent studies show that wheatgrass juice has a powerful ability to fight tumors without the usual toxicity of drugs that also inhibit cell-destroying agents. The many active compounds found in grass juice cleanse the blood and neutralize and digest toxins in our cells.
Contains beneficial enzymes. Whether you have a cut finger you want to heal or you desire to lose five pounds...enzymes must do the actual work. The life and abilities of the enzymes found naturally in our bodies can be extended if we help them from the outside by adding exogenous enzymes, like the ones found in wheatgrass juice. Don't cook it. We can only get the benefits of the many enzymes found in grass by eating it uncooked. Cooking destroys 100 percent of the enzymes in food.
Has remarkable similarity to our own blood. The second important nutritional aspect of chlorophyll is its remarkable similarity to hemoglobin, the compound that carries oxygen in the blood. Dr. Yoshihide Hagiwara, president of the Hagiwara Institute of Health in Japan, is a leading advocate for the use of grass as food and medicine. He reasons that since chlorophyll is soluble in fat particles, and fat particles are absorbed directly into the blood via the lymphatic system, that chlorophyll can also be absorbed in this way. In other words, when the "blood" of plants is absorbed in humans it is transformed into human blood, which transports nutrients to every cell of the body.
When used as a rectal implant, reverses damage from inside the lower bowel. An implant is a small amount of juice held in the lower bowel for about 20 minutes. In the case of illness, wheatgrass implants stimulate a rapid cleansing of the lower bowel and draw out accumulations of debris.
Externally applied to the skin can help eliminate itching almost immediately.
Will soothe sunburned skin and act as a disinfectant. Rubbed into the scalp before a shampoo, it will help mend damaged hair and alleviate itchy, scaly, scalp conditions.
Is soothing and healing for cuts, burns, scrapes, rashes, poison ivy, athlete's foot, insect bites, boils, sores, open ulcers, tumors, and so on. Use as a poultice and replace every two to four hours.
Works as a sleep aide. Merely place a tray of living wheatgrass near the head of your bed. It will enhance the oxygen in the air and generate healthful negative ions to help you sleep more soundly.
Enhances your bath. Add some to your bath water and settle in for a nice, long soak.
Sweetens the breath and firms up and tightens gums. Just gargle with the juice.
Neutralizes toxic substances like cadmium, nicotine, strontium, mercury, and polyvinyl chloride.
Offers the benefits of a liquid oxygen transfusion since the juice contains liquid oxygen. Oxygen is vital to many body processes: it stimulates digestion (the oxidation of food), promotes clearer thinking (the brain utilizes 25% of the body's oxygen supply), and protects the blood against anaerobic bacteria. Cancer cells cannot exist in the presence of oxygen.
Turns gray hair to its natural color again and greatly increases energy levels when consumed daily.
Is a beauty treatment that slows down the aging process when the juice is consumed. Wheatgrass will cleanse your blood and help rejuvenate aging cells, slowing the aging process way down, making you feel more alive right away. It will help tighten loose and sagging skin.
Lessens the effects of radiation. One enzyme found in wheatgrass, SOD, lessens the effects of radiation and acts as an anti-inflammatory compound that may prevent cellular damage following heart attacks or exposure to irritants.
Restores fertility and promotes youthfulness
Suggested Use: 5-20 tablets a day.


What I did notice after a month of injestion was more energy, and the worst smelling gas it will kill a hurd of cow. No hiding that little fluff of a fart in a class room that is for sure. Pee smells very strong, one might gag a little..now I know what that horrid smell is in the bathrooms at the gym from health nuts.

Anti Inflammatory Enzyme
For relief of chronic and occasional inflammation
7 proteolytic enzymes, taken on an empty stomach to break the vicious cycle of chronic and occasional inflammation 60 veg•caps
Label Information
Inflammation, regardless of its cause, results from an inflammatory cascade involving the generation of pro-inflammatory cytokines. These are proteins (such as interleukins and lymphokines) that are released by the cells of the immune system often, as a response to undigested protein molecules in the bloodstream. In chronic cases, this inflammatory response becomes self-sustaining. This enzyme blend is designed to interfere with parts of the inflammatory cascade, resulting in reduced inflammation of joints, intestinal lining, muscles and soft tissue. Helpful for chronic inflammation that results in pain and stiffness, or for occasional inflammation due to sickness or injury. Also helps reduce fibrin build-up in the blood vessels due to the high fibrinolytic activity of Protease AM.
·  Proteolytic blend of 7 enzymes designed to prevent and attenuate inflammatory cascades (cumulative chain reactions involving pro-inflammatory cytokines)
·  Reduces immune response triggered by absorption of undigested protein molecules
·  Taken on an empty stomach for systemic activity
·  Ideally used in conjunction with a digestive enzyme blend at mealtimes to resolve the initial cause of the inflammatory immune response

I dont have any inflamation so I didnt take this one, nut I may over the next few weeks.

Maintain Vitality with Liquid Epresat® Multivitamin!
This looks awesome, as its quick and absorbs faster.
Epresat® was originally designed for people dealing with key health issues and who needed a fast and efficient source of nutrients.  This liquid tonic is easy to swallow and ready for absorption without further breakdown in the digestive tract, making it ideal for those with compromised digestion or vitamin deficiencies.* Tablets, capsules and chewable vitamins are held together with binders, fillers and coatings and often exit the body undigested, providing little benefit to the person taking them.  Even those with adequate stomach acid assimilate only about 20% to 40% of solid vitamins, so Epresat® provides a wise choice for people recovering from an illness, have sensitive digestion or are elderly and may have poor appetites.*
Key Features
  • Epresat®t Multivitamin is a delicious blend of 8 essential vitamins, specially selected aqueous herbal extracts and natural fruit juice concentrates with added wheat germ, honey and yeast extract
  • As this is a liquid formula, the ingredients are more bioavailable than any solid multivitamins
  • Mineral-free so you can take your mineral supplements at a separate time of day for better utilization by the body
  • Delicious tasting liquid that can be added to smoothies, shakes or juice
  • Epresat® is formulated as a solution, so the key ingredients won’t sink to the bottom
  • Thoughtfully bottled in environmentally-friendly recyclable glass
  • Free of dairy, lactose, alcohol, artificial additives and preservatives
  • All vegetarian liquid formula
  • Certified Kosher
Key Benefits
  • Epresat® Multivitamin is a liquid formula containing vitamins and antioxidants for the maintenance of good health*
  • Helps to regain vitality, support the immune system and stimulate digestion*
  • Aids in the absorption and use of calcium so it is beneficial for bones, teeth, cartilage and gums*

This is very good, too bad it expires soon.
This was all a few months ago, I have broken the routine of coarse.

 I really think that beauty comes from energy, if you are fit, find silence in your day, enjoy nature and have a relationship with your body, you will be younger. I get asked all the time why I am so young. I had a women in the local pool tell me I had beautiful skin and how did i have that, well that is genetics. I could see she was sad, maybe even depressed.
She was older, I said well you have have a beautiful smile! I just use creams exfoliate and wash my face twice a day.
