Looking Good Longer
What does “looking good longer” mean?

Looking good as long as you possibly can means keeping healthy and constantly improving your image.
This does not mean looking like a teen-
There was a time that 40 was the time line to “throw out the window” any thoughts of being attracted to the opposite sex. As we now know that men and women hitting on so-
Everyone wants to look healthier, vibrant and more energetic. What happens as we age is mummy lines form around the mouth area, surprise lines begin traveling along the forehead, dull dry looking skin appears on the face and body, sunken cheeks and ghostly looking eyes scare us from the mirror along with sagging thighs, buttocks and upper arms.
We have advanced from looking as young as we possibly can to looking our very best with complexions so glowing that “in the pink” has become a sudden reality.

For complete body moisturizing without the bleaching process, the surprising grape seed oil (from Spain or Italy) found in your supermarket can be applied after the lemon massage for best results. This procedure is applied just after a shower or bath when the body is towel dried and still warm and moist.
