Dr Oz: Anti-Aging Remedies
If you remember when Cher’s “If I Could Turn Back Time” was a hit, you may be nearing a time when you’ll want to know some anti-aging solutions. Just because we are all getting older doesn’t mean we have to show it. That’s why Dr Oz assembled a team of anti-aging experts to reveal innovative treatments, fashions and recipes to help us shave years off our looks. Check out the Fountain of Youth Shake Recipe, learn more about the Palovia Skin Renewing Laser, and get more ideas for new products.
Three experts contributed to Dr Oz’s anti-aging bonanza. They were: dermatologist Dr Joely Kauffman, nutritionist Rovenia Brock, and fashion expert Katrina Szish. That’s right, even changing what you wear can change how old you look. Dr Oz said these three women look much younger than they are. In fact, his on the street segment showing off their pictures had most people guessing they were in their 20s or 30s.
Dr Oz: Pycnogenol Review for Brown Spots
Dr Oz had his audience guess Dr Joely Kauffman’s age (it’s OK; she’s proud of it). The average age guessed was 31, which is a full decade younger than her true age of 41. How does she do it?
Dr Kauffman’s secret is fighting Brown Spots, which she said are the first signs of aging. She recommended a 50 mg Pycnogenol dosage, twice daily. This will help protect your skin from the sun, fade sunspots, and improve your body’s absorption of Vitamins C and E.
Crow’s Feet: Palovia Skin Renewing Laser Review
Dr Kauffman also suggested skipping expensive dermatology consultations and tackling Crow’s Feet at home using the Palovia Skin Renewing Laser. It’s FDA approved for Crow’s Feet. Daily treatments could reduce the appearance of your Crow’s Feet in just a month.
It comes with a gel that you place near your eye before applying the laser to your skin (don’t be frightened by the crackling sound.) Though the laser will set you back $450, Dr Kauffman said that’s a bargain compared to comparable doctor’s office visits and treatments.
Dr Oz: Ole Henriksen Truth is in the Eyes Review
Dr Kauffman also reviewed a product called Ole Henriksen Truth is in the Eyes. It’s a natural topical product that can reduce Crow’s Feet and Dark Circles under the eyes.
Dr Oz: Fountain of Youth Shake Recipe
It was time to get back to the guessing game, and Dr Oz had the audience speculate about nutritionist Rovenia Brock’s age. The average guess was 34, but she said she is actually…wait for it…56! That’s more than 20 years off her look. She said her secret is this shake recipe, which she uses to start each day.
To do this, you’ll need to create your own Wheatgrass Ice Cubes by freezing lemon juice and juiced wheatgrass in an ice cube tray. Wheatgrass has detoxifying and purifying health benefits. The beverage also contains Coconut Water for skin hydration. Antioxidants fight the start of wrinkles and lower aging toxins in the body.
- 2-3 Wheatgrass Ice Cubes (see above)
- 1/2 Lemon
- 1 Green Apple
- 1 tablespoon Ginger
- 1 cup Coconut Water
- Pineapple Spears
- Combine ingredients using a blender.
- Serve while chilled as a beautifying breakfast!
Dr Oz: Biotin Review
To keep your locks looking lustrous, Rovenia recommended 5 mg Biotin every day. She said that you can also round out your breakfast with Almond Butter on whole wheat toast, which naturally contains Biotin. She said you shouldn’t underestimate the role healthy hair plays in perceptions of your age. Do you think that’s true?
Clothes on a Diet: Younger Look Fashions
Last up was Katrina Szish, the fashion expert. Though the audience believed she was about 24, she is actually 40 years old. She said the secret to using fashion for anti-aging is “putting your clothes on a diet.”
Dr Oz: Age-Appropriate Skirts
Avoiding baggy looks in favor of waist-length jackets can showcase your figure. Look for skirts to be medium length; too long makes you look older, and mini-skirts make you look inappropriate for your age. A guideline: look for a skirt that hits at the knee, and never go more than 2” above the knee.
Youthful Fashion: Bold Accessories, Bright Patterns
Dr Oz let Katrina make over Claire from the audience, who showed up wearing a bland black outfit. Katrina advocated for bright patterns, saying that black doesn’t slim you if it’s baggy. She also suggested embracing bold accessories that will make the outfit pop.
Claire’s makeover included a floral knee-length dress with no sleeves, complete with a lime necklace that framed her face. Will you be putting your clothes on a diet?
