Looking Back: Diet, Anti-Aging and Thicker Hair

Even though I'll be on holiday for the next 2 weeks, I didn't want to leave you without anything to read. Here are some of my earlier posts on self-improvement:

DIET: I made some healthy diet changes in 2010 which helped me lose 10-15 lbs of post-baby weight...I stuck to this for a year and need to get back to it!

FACIAL MASSAGE: Since my skin doesn't tolerate ANY anti-aging creams, I try to use facial massage to keep my face toned and (hopefully) youthful looking.

FACIAL EXERCISE: Another anti-aging technique - building up facial muscle to make up for loss of fat as we age. I do LouLou's exercises whenever my face looks like it needs a lift.

EYELASH GROWTH: I tried to use a Castor Oil (aka nature's Latisse!) to thicken my lashes. While it kept them in good condition, I didn't notice any additional thickness or length.

HAIR GROWTH: I also tried various methods of increasing the thickness of my hair - which backfired badly when Biotin supplements triggered a VERY bad acne outbreak!


  1. I've been trying to get back on track with eating healthy too, and so far so good! It's only difficult when I'm at a social gathering, because it usually revolves around food and drink. Otherwise, I think I'm doing much better than I was a few months ago.

    Have a great, safe trip!

    1. For me, the healthy eating struggle is in the preparation - many days it's easier to eat the food I've prepared for the rest of the family than make my own "healthy foods"...

  2. Great portion control with the food pic. The sectioning i bet helps keep you on track with getting all the good stuff you need!!!

  3. I sooo need thick hair - thanks for the tip :)
