What To Use To Reduce Visible Signs of Aging, Wrinkles And Fine Lines

     People are always surprised when I tell them my age. They say to me "you must have good genes." They think my young looking skin comes from my genetics, but they are so wrong. I have young looking skin because I use beauty products that help reduce the signs of aging. My motto is " why look old when there are beauty products that help you to have young looking skin." My favorite anti-aging creams, that I feel work to keep me young look, always contain collagen boosting Peptides and other wonderful skin ingredients like vitamin C and Matrixyl. I feel by using these ingredients on my face I have been able to fight the signs of aging and keep those wrinkles away.

     I was offered a opportunity to review an anti-aging cream with the ingredients that I look for when shopping for face moisturizer. I received a bottle of RegenFX Age Defying Moisturizer to use on my face and let me just say " I love it!" This cream has a wonderful peppermint scent and feels so refreshing on my skin. The cream absorbs quickly and does not feel sticky. I like the way my skin feels and looks after using the cream. The cream my my skin feel soft and hydrated which makes my fine lines less noticeable.

         So what is in RegenFX Age Defying Moisturizer?

Here is some information on this wonderful anti-aging cream that I got off their website:

I Am Improving My Bone Health With ProVital-K2

        I want my bones to be healthy and strong. As I get older I know my bones need more help to stay healthy and strong. My daily recommended allowance will be going up in another 200 MGs according to the charts. I want to do all I can to make sure my body gets the calcium it needs and that my bones absorb the calcium. I don't want to be a hunched over lady with weak bones when I am older. I want strong bones that don't break when I fall.

    I discovered that vitamin K2 helps improve bone strength by delivering calcium to the areas that need it. So now I am taking ProVital-K2 , a unique product that gives me the K2 that I need along with magnesium and lemon bioflavonoid. This supplement is a proprietary blend that contains a pure form of vitamin K2 and has been clinically proven to improve and support not only the bones but also the heart and skin. 

I read this on the  ProVital-K2 website about vitamin K2:
 Vitamin K2 performs critical functions necessary for good health, development, and longevity. It regulates the essential mineral calcium. Calcium in the right places is very important but accumulation of calcium in the wrong places is unhealthy. By activating certain proteins in the body, K2 assists in metabolizing calcium, getting it into the bone matrix and teeth while keeping excess out of, or reversing buildup in, our tissues and cardiovascular system.

Here are some of the benefits this supplement offers.


Promoting heart and cardiovascular health- significantly decreasing “all-cause” and cardiovascular mortality rates.
Redirecting calcium away from soft tissues such as in the cardiovascular system.


Improving bone strength – healthier stronger bones.
Delivering calcium to the areas that need it and away from those that don't.


Increasing skin’s elasticity by providing more nutrients and oxygen to tissues through better blood flow, resulting in smoother, softer skin and the appearance of fewer wrinkles.

I have been taking the product for thirty days. The capsules are easy to swallow and I don't notice any taste when I swallow them. I love that my bones are getting the calcium that they need with ProVital-K2. So will you give your bones K2 so they can stay strong?

  Many know Joy Williams as one half of the four-time Grammy-winning folk-rock duo The Civil Wars. Until their 2012 hiatus (and eventual break up in August 2014) the singer-songstress rarely revealed herself, except through the duo’s music. Joy Williams has released a new solo album, Venus, which tells the story of here journey out of darkness.

  This new album has 11 songs in which she honestly recounts about what occurred in her life over the past two and a half years. She doesn’t try to defend or explain, but instead tells a simple  straightforward story of events, sparing no one, especially herself. It shows how one woman has come to live her truth — the good, the bad, the petulant, the honorable — and in the end, shows all of us how to live our own.

  I enjoyed listening to this album and wanted to share my favorite song, Woman(Oh Mama), you can listen to it below. This song has a nice beat to it and Joy does a great job of describing the woman in her words. It is a song that I enjoy singing to. If you enjoy this song then you need to check out the rest of Joy Williams solo album Venus. JoyWilliams stunning new solo album Venus available June 30, 2015
