The beauty and anti aging industries are worth billions of euro.
Every year women and more and more men all over the world spend ludicrous amounts of money in a quest to look beautiful, sexy and young.
Fake lashes, fake hair, fair nails, fake breasts, thinified bodies, tightened and masked faces…
But does all of this really make people look more beautiful, sexier and younger?
And if so, at what cost?
It’s a known fact that many ingredients used in beauty, anti aging products, and make up are carcinogenic.
These chemicals are used by many of your favourite brands.
If you think lathering or injecting these products on your face and body is going to make you younger, think again.
If anything, they are making you age faster, and may potentially cause disease.
Add this to lack of sleep, stress, alcohol, smoking, dehydration, bad nutrition, overeating, and a sedentary lifestyle… and you have the best aging cocktail in the world.
I am convinced that the less you mess with your body the better.
I got the best beauty tips from my gramma and my mum.
When I got married last August, a lot of my guests were trying to do the maths.
“Anna how come your mum is so young? She must’ve had you when she was very young” they said.
Many thought she was in her mid forties. She is in her mid sixties. And she looks more beautiful than ever.
I can count the amount of times she’s worn make up in her whole life with the fingers in my two hands. She’s never had a facial, a manicure, a pedicure, or any other beauty treatment.
Her beauty secret?
She washes her face every morning. She eats a mediterranean diet. She exercises every day. She relaxes with yoga. She sleeps like a log.
I do exactly the same, and a lot of people don’t believe it when they find out I am six years older than my husband.
The only products I use are completely natural and most of them I make in my own kitchen.
But what I think makes a huge difference is the weekly youth inductions I subject myself to.
At the end of a twenty-minute session, I wake up refreshed and invigorated. It usually feels like the best nap you’ve ever had.
I have done inductions like this with clients, and they tell me that afterwards, they look in the mirror and they can see and feel the difference straight away.
Remember when you were a child, and you were fresh, dynamic, full of energy, flexible, strong, fast, powerful, playful, bold, exuded positive energy and a boundless imagination…?
Youth and beauty are about so much more than what people can see on the surface. It’s about what people can feel from you.
You can be beautiful and young again, quickly, and with no harmful side effects.
All it takes is twenty minutes and a pillow!
