Aging… what I think

Aging

We have many choices today…

We believe you have to embrace it and allow it to happen. It’s the natural rolling on of life. It happens to every single person on the planet. It seems to have come up quickly for us. I have to admit, I never thought about aging. Now, we both are aggressively being pro-active and progressive in our approach to aging. We are invested in our health financially and we do a ton of research and reading everything we can, so we take action steps in the right direction. Our hope is to travel and have a vibrant adventurous lifestyle over the next couple of decades.Jana Clinton

Listen to your gut and your head. I love it that both Mark and I can say, “we have never felt healthier than we do right now.” That’s a very strong statement from both of us. Mark at 65 years old, and he’s at the top of his game in my opinion. I am 7 years younger than Mark and also so grateful for the way we feel and our optimistic approach to aging. We all have to embrace aging and become advocates in a healthier lifestyle.

Mark and I both believe in self-care and we have also paid attention to our health. I am a believer it’s because of Mark’s Type 1 diabetes at the age of 18 his freshmen year in college, that lead us down the road to figuring out what’s best for us.

Mark and I have found it very easy to juice celery (organic) and feel it has been a worth while investment in our Kuvings Juicer. We both love Trader Joe’s and visit it multiple times a week.  One of my favorites is buying fresh flowers for our home.  Jake our toy goldendoodle loves the natural treats. I will need to do a separate blog to share all of our favorites with you.
Here is a blog that has been shared to me by several in my circle of influence and I want to pass it along to you… here

Here are Anthony William books he has written and can’t wait to read the Liver Rescue. 
Send me a note to get more information how you can get your first bottle of HGH Gel and see if this is a product that your body responds too like ours did. You may feel that your body’s biological clock is turning back, reducing fat, building muscle, restoring hair growth and color, strengthening the immune system, normalizing blood sugar, increasing energy and improving sex life, sleep quality, vision, and memory. Even if you could have a few of these start to improve you will have an impact on your daily life. I am also seeing a difference in my skin and I beieve it’s less inflammation on my face and body.
Many of you know that I also retail a natural, organic no toxin skin care brand which also includes professional high-grade long wearing makeup. I do one on one consults for both your skin and mini makeovers. Love to customize these products for you. Now we can improve your skin from the inside with our HGH Gel …

Skin Care, Makeup & Fighting for Our Health Tips

  1. GLOWING SKIN – A skin care routine, weekly masks and facials, oils, moisturizer, sun screen
  2. Mindful of a light hand – a little goes a long ways.
  3. Have more than one look… be able to go from a minimal look, an updated natural look, to a professional or even applying new trends.

I think people think glowing skin is natural but it is not. What you put on your skin, the water you drink, the food you eat, using a routine for cleansing, masks, exfoliation, sun screen it all plays a key role in how your skin looks. As we age we can get a dull finish, drying skin and our natural oils need to be replenished. We need to hydrate our skin twice a day, more in the summer months, and way more than we used too when we were younger. Also, it is important for me to know that the ingredients in my skin care were good for me with no chemicals or toxins. You have to really work on your skin to keep it glowing. Trust me it’s not natural unless you are very young.

I think the most important tip is being mindful of a light hand. I think what happens to many of my customers they have one look and that’s what you see for every day or night. I would have a minimal look for staying at home, a natural look for everyday out and about, and then for those times that you are going to dinner, and other places that you want a more polished look. I think it’s fun to try some of the trends and being mindful what season we are in from summer to fall looks.

PREP is EVERYTHING 

4. I use and recommend our Dew Date Oil, along with an anti-aging product, and a hydration moisturizer. I let the skin care products set for about 5 minutes before you apply your foundation. I do use a primer that is loaded with vitamins and minerals. All of our sprays from primer to finishing are a must if you want to extend your look for more than 16 hours. I never have to touch up and I feel like my look lasts all day long.

5. Your foundation can be applied as a BB cream (sheer) to a full coverage which is a perfect way to take your makeup from a minimal look all the way to a polished look. I love our botanical foundation because you can apply it as sheer as you want to full coverage and being able to cover scars and rosacea. I also use many tones of our concealer for my eye primer, covering redness and purple tones, sun spots and brightening under the eyes. The goal is to hide discoloration and remember a little goes a long ways. To enhance your complexion to one color tone is very flattering and healthy looking. Our concealers are 84% pigment and foundation is 54% most products on the market are between 18 to 22%. Obviously, you have to use more to get the coverage when the pigment isn’t there. That is why our foundation is so special for women over 40 years old. Retails for $36 and lasts from 4 to 6 months. Most of my customers have tried everything from Bare Minerals to high-end foundations and ours truly is one of the top 3 in the entire makeup market and used by professional makeup artists for decades.

6.  FILLING IN THE BROWS We have to fill them in for all looks and my preference is eyeshadow. I think it looks more natural than a pencil and the color options are great. If you have the funds the best procedure that I have had done is microblading. It’s expensive but so worth it. If you are in the UTAH area, my recommendation is Olya, she is the very best in my opinion. Here is a link to her website: UtahMicroblading

7.  I use very little setting powder and it has to be translucent powder so it functions as it should. I don’t put it under my eyes and only on my nose, middle forehead and chin, if at all. 

8.  LOVE our BRONZER I pat it on the top of my hairline on my forehead, under my cheeks for contouring and my jaw line and down the middle of my neck. Our Bronzer can also be used as eyeshadow. If you want a beautiful sun touched bronzer take a look at ours… Retails for $24.

9.  I use a very light blush sometimes in the peach or pink tones depending on my lip color. I apply it on the highest part of my check bone in an upwards motion. I have to admit I go very light on my blush. I know in the past I was applying too much blush and more on the apple of my check. We need to go lighter and apply it higher as we get older.

10.  Mascara is a must and I love our $20 tube. In fact it has been the #1 item every month since I have been retailing LimeLife which is almost 2 years. It’s a fiber building, curls lashes and the more you apply the more bold it looks. So you can take it from a minimal look to a heavy black bold eye.

Tips from taking your makeup to different levels really comes to how you address your foundation, lips and your eyes. Obviously you would go from a sheer to a full coverage, nude to a more colorful lip, and for the eyes creams and light taupe to deep rich colors.

Blending is everything from pressing in your foundation to blending your powders. ALWAYS clean your tools once a week if not more (if you are getting breakouts first place to look is the hygiene of your brushes and tools.)

I tried to rank these in order of importance and hopefully you can look at your skin care and makeup and keep what you love and come shopping with me for some new natural skin care or professional grade makeup. Shop with Jana 

Here is my Facebook Business Page… Nana’s Life if you are local or want to find me.

Mark and I have also been using an HGH Gel that both of us can speak to the improvements in our skin, our energy, how we sleep, our calmness, and most excited about how much stronger we feel. Ask me for more information here or visit our site to become a customer. More information here

We both fight fiercely for our health as we want to live and be able to do all the activities into our later years.

What’s Different Jana

New Season, New Decade. We are both motivated to continue to change our lifestyles for the better…small changes are working for us.

Nothing stays the same … right!

What’s New. First we now have a Trader Joe’s in the hood and I go there 3 times a week. It’s the only store I shop for our grocery’s and flowers. I love the experience. What am I buying: for starters 7 stalks of organic celery (one for each day) which we now juice every single morning. Before we drink our celery we drink a glass of hot organic lemon water, then our celery juice with our supplements. We usually don’t eat breakfast till around 10 am, which is our protein loaded smoothie (save that for another day). We are always looking for area’s of change. I understand everyone is either ahead of us or behind us and we all have to make our own individual decisions on how we live and what we eat. I love the wild sockeye salmon at Trader Joe’s and we are eating that 3 times a week, with salads, vegetable soups the rest of the week. Mark is eating once a week a grass-fed rib-eye. That is a HUGE change for us. 

New for both Mark and I is the HGH Gel which has completely changed our energy levels, how we sleep, our cravings, and we both are most excited about feeling stronger. Crazy but our skin is improving too. We lose 85% of our natural HGH and you can purchase supplements to produce natural HGH which we purchased on-line and recommended by Dr. Oz G.O.A.L. (Amino Acids) We both know that we are probably not getting very much of the supplement. Our changes are coming from the GEL. Send me a note if you want more information on the HGH Gel. Game Changer!

I am so thankful to have found a natural skin care line that I can visibly see the difference in my skin and I know it’s healthy for me. Our professional grade makeup is long wearing and the colors are so pretty. I feel like this makeup is geared towards women who are 35 years old and older. As our skin changes and we need more hydration we can address those skin issues with a consultation. I can’t forget to mention we also drink lots of water all day long. Ask me for a LimeLife catalog, natural skin care samples or for a one on one mini makeover. I love sharing what’s working for us.

If you want our list of supplements send me a message and I will send those to you…I can honestly say my husband Mark, coming up on 40 years has taken supplements his entire adult life and I know for a fact it has improved and maintained his health. It took me a lot longer to have the discipline in a daily routine. I can see the difference in both of us. The changes have been so positive that it makes sense to keep on making small changes.

Sidenote: Nothing is better than asking Alexa to wake us up with George Strait singing “Love is Everything”.

XOXO

Jana
