Get the Best Skin Ever- By Joanna Kirshner

  • Best Skin Ever

Happy New Year! It’s a new year with new beginnings and bright and shiny possibilities. So, there is no better time than the present to commit yourself to achieve the best skin ever! Great skincare will change your life, and it is such a simple way to revolutionize your health and beauty. 

A few tips:

Start by cleansing your skin like you mean it. Use a cleanser that will remove the days’ dirt and makeup gently. 

Exfoliate, exfoliate, exfoliate!  Your skin cannot grow and thrive if you are not getting rid of the old, dead skin cells lingering behind.  Just remember, unless your skin is overproducing oil and is congested, a couple of times a week is the ideal amount for exfoliation. 

Don’t pick at blemishes! It only exacerbates the problem and transfers bacteria from your hand on to your face, right where you DON’T want it. 


I can’t stress enough the importance of keeping your skin hydrated. Hydrated skin reduces the appearances of wrinkles, which may explain why several studies show that supplementing with hyaluronic acid can make skin appear smoother.

And lastly, apply sunscreen daily!

Preferably one with dual purpose moisturizer with SPF. Choose a sunscreen that will protect your skin without irritation.

The Best Anti-Aging Workout According to Science

  • Best Anti-aging Workout

A new study published today in the European Heart Journal says when it comes down to the anti-aging effects of exercise, cardio is queen. Endurance exercise–like running, swimming, or bicycling–and high-intensity interval training (HIIT) both slowed signs of aging compared to lifting weights, at least on the cellular level.

Is Cold-Pressed Juice Really Healthier?

  • Best Anti-aging Workout

Whether you like to grab a bottle post-workout on the way home from your favorite juice bar or have subscribed to a mail-order cleanse, cold-pressed juices are everywhere (even Starbucks). A reason why these juices are beneficial is because no heat or oxygen is used in the cold-pressing process, so nutrients are not lost as they typically are when heated during pasteurization. But, the high-pressure processing of cold-pressed juice leaves behind the pulp, where fiber is typically stored, so cold-pressed juices may be lacking in fiber. And no matter what kind of process your juice goes through, all juices are still high in sugar. Click here to read more:
