Kosmea Rose Hip Oil-nature's answer for anti-aging!

Ciao bella,

Beautiful skin is not only inherited, but, when it is, it should be treated like one of life's prizes. Naturally, aging of the skin differs dramatically due to genes, ethnicity, diet, stress and care.

I am amazed when I run into a classmate from high school. Wow some have not aged well at all. What have they done to themselves! I only remember these creamy, ivory skin gals and some olive complexion gals and wonder how their skin has taken on a 10-20 year fast forward. After some brief, "What's new?" talk I can understand the deep crow's feet and sagging wrinkles! Drugstore products of inferior quality!

Come on ladies; get on board with a professional all natural skincare. Do some homework. Find a valued professional in the field and start plumping up your skin. It is never too late as my

Mom would always say. She was always on the hunt for the best moisturizing soap, concealer and skin care. Her motto was, let's try the latest and greatest! What's the worst that could happen? She had beautiful skin that she took care of her whole life.

I'm here to tell you about KOSMEA's ROSE HIP OIL. All the way from the land down under (Australia). There are many rose hip oils on the market-most made under an inferior process. KOSMEA takes pride in the process of their refined and Certified Organic Rose Hip Oil. In my profession I have experienced all sorts of skincare and now after 8 years of faithfully using this product I owe it to promote it to all who will listen. It's rich in Vitamin A, essential fatty acids and antioxidants. When applied to skin will help to smooth wrinkles, even skin tone and give an instant healthy glow. Guaranteed! Also great for nails and cuticles and various skin conditions.

Do yourself a favor-try some today!

Buona giornata,

Jeepers, Creepers

"Jeepers Creepers, where'd ya get those peepers?
Jeepers creepers! Where'd you get those eyes?"

—Words by Johnny Mercer; music by Italian-American composer Harry Warren.
Ciao bella,
You razzle-dazzled them through the years and they got you whatever you wanted. At least that's what my eyes did for me! Now with Mother Nature always around the corner, knocking on the door we must not hesitate to pay attention to our "peepers." So the eye makeup we used 5 years ago should not be the same as the eye makeup we must apply today. Luckily, eye makeup is practical magic!
As we get older our eyes change. We must also use a skin care regimen for mature skin not the same one you used when you were 20. In fact your skin care regimen should always be updated every 7-10 years.
Always use a "gentle" eye makeup remover. No stretching!
For fine lines: Never apply concealer on top of your wrinkles it just makes them more noticeable. Concealer is a highlighter and is used for those nasty dark circles. High lighter pens are also popular to brighten up those shadowy areas. Apply a flesh- tone pencil along the bottom inner rim.
For sparse brows: Give your brows a break and let them grow in for 3-4 weeks. Use a powder or feather pencil to fill in. A taupe or blonde shade looks best on just about everyone. Thin brows are not as attractive as full-arched brows.
For lashes: Apply a felt- tip liner to the roots of your lashes to make them look thicker and denser. Then line the upper, inner lid by holding lid taut. Finish with a volumizing mascara.
Follow these easy tips and SEE where they'll get ya!
Buona giornata and God bless the United States of America!
