All cracked up, Would you paint this canvas?
No you wouldn't. Think of your face, and if you don't take care of the surface, and the supporting surface, you will be putting your makeup over a surface like the picture.
Makeup is GLAMOROUS, SEXY, FUN, and a gives you instant satisfaction. We see countless bloggers, magazine ads, pictures, posting fun, beautiful, and trendy makeup. It's eye catching and makes us instantly look and feel beautiful.
Skincare and supplements are the crux of a smooth, solid foundation. That is what makes our makeup wear and look better.
Do you see instant results from skincare and supplements? Not exactly, this happens over a week, month, two months, or three months. After a few months of taking supplements, and using skincare products, all of the sudden notice: "OH, WOW, My skin is looking GREAT! My makeup looks smoother, and skin looks brighter!" Then you get a compliment, because you are GLOWING!
Topically applied skincare products, can only take your skin so far. Exercise will help with moving toxins out of your body (aka sweat), boost your HGH hormone, balance your hormones, relieve stress, keep your heart healthy, retain muscles mass, need I go on? Diet has those key nutrients to reduce inflammation, and support the functions of your organs. I think we will all agree, we are what we eat, and exercise is GREAT for our mind, body, and soul.
What is the biggest organ of our body?
SKIN ..yes you guessed it!
Why wouldn't we eat right and take quality supplements to assist us to feel better, and support our largest organ as we age? This is easy, we are human, and lets face it temptation is always out there wether it is socializing, comforting, or just surviving. Some important nutrients are extremely difficult to eat enough to achieve the benefits. Then you go to your physician, which western medicine doesn't believe in vitamin/mineral supplements.
Are all supplements created equal?
NO! There are so many products to choose from, and it is convenient to pick them up from the grocery store, or look for the least expensive supplements.
Guilty! When I first start taking vitamins, I was guilty, and sometimes you are throwing good literally down the toilet! Remember there are no regulations on vitamins. Fed up, I did my research, I found a company that tested vitamins, to see if what is on the label is what was in the product. If you are taking the time to take a multi-vitamin or whatever you decide, then don't you want to take what you are paying for, and get results you deserve?
his is when I came upon a company called Life Extension, they produces QUALITY supplements. This company was the game changer for me. It is backed by a panel of physicians, and is backed by research. I started taking the TWO-A-DAY multi vitamin, evolving to taking my supplements at the correct times, so they are absorbed effectively.
Supplements, skincare, are my passion. Don't get me wrong, I love cosmetics, too! I love looking and feeling Sexy, Glamorous! Unless you have a solid place to put my apply my makeup, then the money you spend on your makeup will just add unwanted years. Yes, even in your 20s you should be thinking about this! As with everything, over time, your skincare, supplement routine will evolve. If in your 20s, you will not have the same needs as 30, 40 or 50 year olds. It is all relative to your age and should be taken into consideration!
All of the supplements from Life Extensions, are on the website to help your skin/body look and feel great!

Benefits at a glance:
Choose the most comprehensive fish oil supplement available
The omega-3 fatty acids found in fish oil are essential elements of a healthy diet. But the typical Western diet, which contains high amounts of omega-6 fats, is usually insufficient in beneficial omega-3s like eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA).1Therefore, supplementing with healthy omega-3s is a great way to support heart health and more.
AlaskOmega® — pure, fresh, sustainable, and made in the USA
There are many fish oil supplements out there … but very few utilize AlaskOmega® — a sustainably harvested fish oil made from cold-water Alaska Pollock that is both caught andprocessed in the United States within hours of harvest for exceptional freshness.
AlaskOmega® has earned the International Fish Oil Standards’ (IFOS™) highest 5-star rating, and comes from a Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) certified-sustainable fishery. Which means it actually exceeds industry standards. Do you know where your fish oil comes from?
Olive Oil and Omega-3s — staples of the Mediterranean diet
Studies indicate that the Mediterranean diet — rich in omega-3 fatty acids, monounsaturated fatty acids (like those found in olive oil), and antioxidant-rich fruits, vegetables, and herbs — is associated with cardiovascular health and increased life span.2-10
Other studies support omega-3’s importance in cardiovascular health,11-13and an abundance of scientific research substantiates the wide-ranging health benefits of omega-3 fatty acids in fish oil and the monounsaturated fatty acids and polyphenols in olive fruit.14-22
Super Omega-3 provides a standardized olive fruit extract packed with the polyphenol hydroxytyrosol, a powerful antioxidant that protects normal LDL from oxidation and counters free radicals.23-27
Plus, research shows that a combination of olive oil and fish oil supplements promotes a healthy inflammatory response better than a placebo or fish oil alone.28
Only our Super Omega-3 formula provides a highly concentrated olive fruit extract equivalent to the polyphenol content found in 8–12 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil and standardized for hydroxytyrosol, tyrosol, verbascoside and oleuropeinpolyphenols — and fits it into just four softgels a day! Research shows the value of oleuropein in favorably altering gene expression,29 delaying senescence in specialized skin cells,30 and helping maintain normal platelet activation.31
Sesame lignans preserve fish oil’s purity and potency
The unstable nature of the omega-3 fatty acids in fish oil limits their effectiveness. Super Omega-3 provides standardized sesame lignans to enhance the stability of DHA levels in your body and the overall benefits of the improved EPA/DHA fish oil.32,33
No other fish oil supplement contains this level of pure, potent, and sustainably sourced omega-3 fatty acids, sesame lignans, or heart-healthy olive fruit polyphenols. With a natural lemon flavor added to improve taste and palatability, Super Omega-3 EPA/DHA with Sesame Lignans & Olive Extract is the most comprehensive omega-3 supplement you can buy!
Skin Restoring Phytocermides with Lipowheat 30 liquid vegetarian capsules
Skin Restoring Phytoceramides with Lipowheat® offers the skin-nourishing benefits of wheat-derived ceramide oils in a convenient oral supplement designed to support dermal elasticity, proper hydration, and lasting comfort!
Benefits at a Glance
Skin Deep: the benefits of ceramide oils
Ceramides comprise 35%–40% of the binding matrix that maintains moisture balance and protects the surface of your skin.1,2 These skin-nourishing oils are an important lipid component of the skin’s membrane, where they provide protection from the elements and lock in moisture.2-5 But one of the challenges of maintaining supple, healthy skin is that ceramide levels naturally decrease as we age!6,7This is the two or three line description that will be shown on the product page and any other pages that have a link to this product.
Black Cumin Seed Oil- 60 softgels
As we age, a balanced immune and inflammatory response becomes critical to guarding our health.65-69 Research has shown Black Cumin Seed Oil to be particularly effective.70-78
Scientists have determined that black cumin seeds contain a broad spectrum of active compounds.70 Combined, these compounds provide powerful and wide-ranging immune support and promote healthy inflammatory response.70,71
A number of biological factors contribute to the body’s normal inflammatory activity, including cell-signaling chemicals and hormone-like messengers.77,78 In a series of scientific studies, Black Cumin Seed Oil has been shown to support the normal effectiveness of these inflammatory factors.70,71
Also, an aging, healthy immune system needs to orchestrate the activity of macrophages and helper T-cells. Black Cumin Seed Oil was also shown to support the optimal function of this vitally important defensive activity.79-81
By acting on both immune factors and inflammatory factors, Black Cumin Seed Oil supports a healthy immune system — which is increasingly important as we age — and facilitates a healthy inflammatory response!
Adrenal Energy Formula 60capsules
When properly supported, the mechanism known as homeostasis enables the body to maintain its normal balance during stress, helping us to remain energized and focused.
Increasingly overwhelmed by stress, however, our bodies seldom get a chance to restore our natural equilibrium.
The result is that an estimated 75%–90% of visits to primary care physicians are now related to the effects of stress.15
Even more alarming is a recently published study16 linking stress with shorter telomeres (the caps on the ends of chromosomes), which is associated with accelerated aging!
Stress disrupts multiple biochemical pathways, including cortisol production, the hypothalamus-pituitary-adrenal (HPA)axis, pro-inflammatory enzyme production and neurotransmitter production. A pre-clinical study has shown that stress also inhibits neural plasticity (the growth of new connections between neurons in the brain)!17
Fortunately, Life Extension® has created a state-of-the-art formulation of botanical adaptogens, shown to modulate a broad range of factors to help relieve the effects of stress.
Adrenal Energy Formula combines four known stress-modulating extracts—Holy Basil, Cordyceps, Bacopa, andAshwagandha—each scientifically validated to support homeostasis, even on the most stressful days.
Each of these extracts modulates a different set of stress related changes in the body’s chemistry.18-30 Combined, they maycomplement each other to provide complete adaptogenic stress defense!
For those who are seeking protection from the effects of stress, Adrenal Energy Formula™ is a broad-spectrum, potent, and safe formulation for maintaining healthy energy and vitality!

What is a stem cell?
Stem cell by defination: an undifferentiated cell of a multicellular organism that is capable of giving rise to indefinitely more cells of the same type, and from which certain other kinds of cell arise by differentiation.
Stem cells are helping with medical problems, and have been integrated into skincare. In skincare products, they are a way to rejuvenate the skin to produce a younger firmer outcome.
In the world of skincare, stem cells can be derived from plant, animals, and humans.
Plant stem cells originated in Switzerland, where a certain type of apple was found to be resilient to decay once picked. This apple made for a stronger apple that would not decay as fast as the other plants. This apple sparked the interest of skincare companies who were looking for alternative to bovine based products.
Ovine based stem cells are harvested from afterbirth placenta cells from sheep. The cells are freeze-dried so the nutrients are there and results are there.
Animal DNA is closer than plant DNA to that of humans. Botanical plants derived stem cells, mimic the action of human stem cells, allow healing and cellular regeneration. It shows to reduce fine lines, increase collagen, and improve skin quality.
A product I have been using for the last 90 days is Stem Cell Daily Gold Serum by SCBI. This is a bovine based stem cell serum. It has changed the tone, texture, and firmness of my skin, so much so that my husband has commented on how GREAT my skin looks.
This product targets all signs of aging, inflammation and acne by revitalizing your skin and giving you a daily lift. Stem Cell Daily Gold Serum works from inside skin cells, to give you smooth, hydrated skin: a perfect surface for applying makeup that stays refreshed throughout the day.
The quality and quantity of the stem cells in the product can be determined by the ingredients. The first listed ingredient of Stem Cell Daily is O-Placenta making stem cells the main ingredient in the serum. There is also GOLD in the product, this helps with the tone of your skin.
If you are using daily or derma rolling, or derma penning, into your skin, the difference is amazing. Texture is smoother. Tone is firmer and brighter.
This has simplified my skin care routine. I see countless bloggers, that use a multitude of products.
Why do you want to spend this much time and money? How can you tell if or which product is actually working?
Layering a bunch of products, can they loose effectiveness if you don't let them absorb into the skin? Depending on who you are talking too, there is some debate whether you need to wait a couple minutes to apply your next treatment product. My thoughts (and common sense) tell me yes, let your products absorb before applying the next product.
Why not simplify your routine, see how you can get better results with less products?
The price of quality skin care is not exactly cheap, so don't you want to get the most from your skincare?
When I first began using Stem Cell Gold Daily, I ceased all other skincare treatments, my nighttime regimen consisted of cleanse with oil to remove makeup, cleanse with a foaming cleanse, toner, Stem Cell Gold Daily, and Stem Cell Moisturizer, Stem Cell Eye Cream.
In the morning, just splash face with water, Stem Cell Daily, and Stem Cell Moisturizer, and Stem Cell Eye Cream.
A note: one time a month I do take my skin pen, and needle my Stem Cell Serum into my face.
Regenerate your beautiful face!
NOTE: I am currently offering Stem Cell products on my website. I wanted and will introduce you to products that have worked for me and I believe in. I currently have used plant based stem cell products, and bovine based stem cell products. I have not used any human based stem cell products.
Stem Cell Beauty Innovation have been featured on Access Hollywood, The Doctor's, and in magizines: Allure, Instyle, and used by many celebrities.
