My Top Recommended Skin Care Line - Australiana Skin
This company has a range of very high quality skin care products that are chemical free and all botanical. I have been using them for some time now and I just love what they do for me. I also love that I don’t have to worry about any potential harmful chemicals being absorbed.
They are so different than anything else I have tried. Their secret is in the unique ingredients. They use Australian Outback super fruits and Australian essential oils that have only recently been discovered by modern science. Apparently these ingredients are super rich in vitamins, minerals, anti-aging properties, anti-oxidants and a ton of other nutrients that are wonderful for your skin. Anyone with peri-menopausal acne issues will love these.
A couple of weeks ago I met with the founder of the company and he has agreed to offer a special discount for all of my clients and Followers!

My Six Beauty Secrets
SECRET #1 - WATER
The best, easiest, and cheapest way to keep your skin looking youthful and clear, is to DRINK YOUR WATER. I drink on an average of 1 gallon of water per day. This helps to keep my skin elastic and hydrated.
Challenge yourself to a water drinking competition. See if you can drink 128 ounces for 7 days. You'll be amazed at how you will feel AND look! Read my blog: Water: Pure & Simple.
SECRET #2 - SLEEP
I'm sure you've heard the phrase - get your beauty sleep. Well, it's true! I follow a pretty tight schedule, and because of this, I am pretty strict on going to bed when I need to. I have found, for myself I need at minimum 7-8 hours of good sleep in order to keep the bags from appearing under my eyes, and to feel great! Find out how many hours you need, then stick to a schedule. Read my blog: Aging is Optional
SECRET #3 - EAT PROTEIN
Eating protein is one of the best strategies for loosing weight. But, there are also many other benefits such as it builds and repair body tissue, which helps with smooth skin and strong hair. It helps with muscle loss and metabolic showdown. Aim for .8 - 1 gram of protein per pound. For example, if you weight 150 lbs. you would have between 120 - 150 grams of protein depending on your goals. Read my blog: Foods that Stop Aging

Have you ever tried to create just the right mix of a magic potion to make your skin look amazing? I have and I want to share it with you! To reduce signs of aging, stretch marks, and cellulite, mix these ingredients together and apply regularly:
SECRET #6 - MUD MASK
Face masks are a perfect treatment for hydrating skin, removing excess oils, and approving appearance. They can also pull out impurities. My ultimate favorite is the Manuka Miracle Mask! This mask is 100% natural, free of all impurities and toxins. It has some wonderful ingredients such as New Zealand East Cape Manuka, which is very high in Beta Triketones, which is highly acclaimed for health and skin care. Plus it has Australian super fruits fusion in it. The Manuka oil has an aromatherapy benefit of calming and soothing. It's pretty awesome!! Enter Sandy15 at checkout for a 15% discount.
SECRET #5 - DRY BRUSHING
A dry body brush will give your body a thorough exfoliation and also stimulate circulation and helps with lymphatic drainage, which helps the body eliminate toxins. Dry brushing also help with cellulite and sheds dead skin cells. I dry brush 2-3 days a week before a bath or shower.
2. You only need 5-20 minutes
3. Light pressure is best to
stimulate circulation. It shouldn’t hurt
4. Skin should be pink, not red or irritated.
5. Brush upwards towards the heart.
