Dr. Oz Tells You How To Look Younger

In your 20’s it seems as if skincare is easy. Wash, moisturize and slap on some sunscreen (on occasion). In your 30’s you start to think “I wish i took better care of my skin in my twenties,” and in your 40’s you think “I need to start globbing on moisturizer and retinol. Botox here I come.” According to a Dr. Oz airing, here are a few ways to look years younger without the botox.

#1 Retinol

There has been decades of research that shows that Retinol is safe to use daily, and will produce amazing effects. Many products are purchasable over the counter, so grab some and use a thin layer nightly to significantly reduce the signs of aging.

#2 High Heels

The shoe designer featured on Dr. Oz said “altitude is attitude.” Though high heels are not always the most comfortable, nor extremely good for your feet and knees, you can still wear them if you follow three simple rules. Make sure the heels have straps so that you don’t have as much pressure on your toes, purchase heels in the morning and grab a pair that are under 2 1/2 inches. Also, do not wear your heels for more than three hours at a time.

#3 Wash Your Face EVERY Night

There’s a good chance that you’ve gone to bed more than once with makeup still on your face. If you’re trying to look younger and preserve your skin, it’s essential to wash your face each night before catching some Z’s. Believe it or not, you will actually wake up looking more tired than if you had of washed your face. So grab some makeup removing and cleansing toweletts if you don’t want to soak and scrub. These will break down the oils of residue makeup, and cleanse your skin in a matter of minutes.

#4 Vitamin E

Want great hair for the rest of your life? Olive oil has been used for years to get great, healthy looking hair. The Vitamin E and other antioxidants in olive oil will nourish your hair, making it silky, smooth and shiny. Spritz some on your hair in the morning, or go to the extreme and do a hair mask at night. To do this, warm up some olive oil in a cup.  Rub the oil through dry hair and let it sit in a shower cap for 20 minutes. Rinse with cold water, and lightly shampoo.

#5 Use Concealer and Corrector

Makeup artist Bobbi Brown said to use concealer and corrector daily. The peachy tint of the corrector will minimize dark circles while the yellowish tint of concealer will hide fine lines, wrinkles and make your under eyes look 5 years younger.

Aside from the recent airing, here are 3 of the most common things people lack in their daily routine that will  tremendously slow down the aging process:

#1 Eat Well

We’ve all heard it. Vitamins, minerals and a whole lot of water will keep your blood moving, weight down, and energy up. According to advice from the US Government is to consume daily: 5 servings fruits and vegetables, 3 servings of whole grains daily for those essential vitamins and minerals, and drink five to eight 8-oz. glasses of water.  Limit your fat-calorie intake to 30% of your total daily calories consumed; 15% from protein; and the remaining calories (55%) from carbohydrates – eat complex carbohydrates like oatmeal, whole wheat bread and wild rice.

#2 Exercise

If you’re truly committed to slowing the aging process, regular aerobic exercise is a “must-do.” Hundreds of studies show, and all experts agree that exercise “combats the loss of stamina, muscle strength, balance, and bone density that increases with age.” (Discovery Health) According to the American Heart Association, for beginners a single set of eight to 15 repetitions, using eight to 10 exercises, two to three times a week for a comprehensive strength-building program is sufficient. If you are not a beginner, you can incorporate this 10-minute routine with other aerobic activity such as walking, running, yoga, etc.

#3 Antioxidants: Maximize Your Intake

Antioxidants play a significant role to neutralize free-radicals, which contribute to the onset of age-related diseases. Everyone, no matter what age, should take a combination of antioxidants through supplements and regular diet. Here are some great sources for essential antioxidants, fatty acids and minerals: 200-250 mg of vitamin C; 100-400 IU of vitamin E; Blueberries, blackberries, kale, spinach, sea buckthorn, and other dark-colored vegetables like tomatoes, carrots, and squash.

Dalai Lama for Peace

Sibu Beauty Blessing

Newark, N.J. – On Friday, May 13, the Dalai Lama – along with a diverse group of speakers ranging from a former member of the Bloods street gang to to Jody Williams, a peace activist from Brattleboro, VT – spoke on the topic of working for peace. With a crowd over 1,000 people, the Tibetan Buddhist spiritual leader commenced the three-day Newark Peace Education Summit by enlightening the audience that finding inner peace is a pivotal precondition to making positive change in the world.

The Dalai Lama said, “The change in human society, the initiative, must start with the individual… I really feel America is the real champion of democracy and freedom, so America has a moral responsibility.”

He also added that people change systems, not the other way around, “The world belongs to over 6 billion human beings, not governments or religious leaders,” he said. “The world belongs to people.”

Sibu’s New Spokeperson

Sibu Beauty announced this morning that Amy Paffrath will be the new spokesmodel for Sibu Beauty.

Amy, a St. Louis, MO native that presently resides in Los Angeles is the host of E! News Nowand a correspondent for the networks’ show Daily 10. In addition to an impressive variety of acting and reporting jobs, she also stars in the musical comedy I Kissed a Vampirewhich debuted earlier this year at The Seattle International Film Festival.

Pete McMullin, VP of Marketing for Sibu Beauty commented, “The choice to go with Amy as the face and voice of Sibu Beauty was an easy one. She is as knowledgeable and personable as she is beautiful. She has a passion for life and doing the right things to help the planet and empower people.  Amy is the perfect representative for the Sibu Beauty line”.


‘Do the right thing’ is taught to every child in kindergarten, but is a value lacking in most businesses. When Sibu Beauty continued its legacy of humanitarian efforts by taking an active role in improving the lives of the women of Tibet, His Holiness the Dalai Lama took notice.

Sibu Beauty Blessing

The main ingredient in all Sibu Beauty products is the sea buckthorn berry, a unique superfruit carefully harvested by hand, only one month a year, high in the Himalayas by the women of the region. When Sibu established fair trade agreements with local harvesters to secure rights to this source, one major goal was, and continues to be, creating opportunities for work and fair pay to the people of the region. As a result of these fair trade agreements, Sibu Beauty has improved the quality of life of these Tibetan villagers as well as providing a source of income for women, who can now make enough money to help the family weather the harsh Tibetan winters in just a couple of months.

Sibu Beauty’s efforts made a noticeable difference to the Tibetan villagers and caught the attention of  the Dalai Lama, ultimately leading to a meeting with His Holiness and Sibu co-founder Ramesh “Nico” Khanna. During this meeting, His Holiness offered his blessing on the “wonderful effort” taking place every harvest season, and voiced his gratitude for the opportunity given to women in the region to work and earn fair trade compensation.

“The meeting and blessing by His Holiness the Dalai Lama is validation of Sibu’s efforts to provide means for local villagers to earn fair compensation to sustain their families through the brutal Himalayan winter,” said LaMar Wiscombe, CEO of Sibu Beauty. “Sibu could buy sea buckthorn raw materials on the open market for a fraction of what it costs to have it hand-harvested in the remote mountain valleys of Tibet. However, we believe in a higher cause than just profit margins.”

According to company founder Bruce McMullin, “Sibu Beauty’s work with the women of Tibet is just one of the our initiatives to be a good corporate citizen and show that sustainability is about more than energy conservation. Sibu’s products are made to the highest standards to reduce damage to the environmental from chemicals, overflowing landfills and irresponsible management of our forests and other resources. Our work and partnership with the Forest Stewardship Council, Tashi Foundation and Choice Humanitarian help make our world a healthier, better place for everyone.”
