A Family, Beauty, Health and Lifestyle Blog
When someone meets me for the first time, and finds out that I have grown children, and especially when they learn that I have two grand daughters, they are often quite surprised. I apparently do not look old enough for those things. That makes me so very happy. I know I have good genetics. (You should see my mother!) I also take very good care of my skin, but I am adamant about taking anti-aging supplements.
My favorite anti-aging supplement is SeroVital ADVANCED. SeroVital ADVANCED builds on the foundation that's made SeroVital-hgh America's #1 anti-aging therapy formula with over 4 million boxes sold. This new product fights the signs of aging from the inside out, allowing you to experience better results in as little as 15 days.
What do you think? How old do you think I am?
SeroVital-hgh quickly paved the way for supplements that address aging in a meaningful way, via supporting the body's natural production of human growth hormone (or hGH*) which plays a crucial role in the body's ability to stay young on a biological level. hGH has been associated with strengthening the underlying substructure of skin, stimulating collagen production, causing fat cells to shrink, and more. Building on this already groundbreaking well beauty formula, the team at SeroVital used feedback from brand loyalists, consumer research, and clinical studies to create the next generation formulation.
"We know how loyal our customers are, and their feedback is very important to us," said Dr. Amy Heaton, Ph.D., Chief Science Officer for SeroVital. "When we learned that there was a desire for a SeroVital product that delivered more and worked more rapidly, we knew we had to create something that did just that. This advanced formula goes above and beyond the original by maximizing the benefits of increased levels of hGH," Heaton said. "It is truly an innovation in anti-aging science, formulated to increase skin hydration by up to 23.8%, skin elasticity by 15.9%, and skin smoothness by up to 11.0% in just 15 days. Individuals in the studies on the functional ingredients in SeroVital ADVANCED also experienced enhanced energy, focus, and mood."
The system is broken into two parts: the Evening Blend and the Morning Blend. The result – accelerated skin benefits, weight loss, increased energy, and improved sleep in as little as 15 days!
The Evening Blend contains an exclusive patented blend of amino acids, including L-Lysine, L-Arginine, and L-Glutamine, which increases your hGH levels closer to those you experienced in your 20s and 30s. SeroVital has sold over 4 million boxes and is the ONLY product offering this unique blend, which is backed by 4 clinical trials and protected by 15 U.S. and international patents. The four capsules support the pituitary gland and inhibit the "gunk" (or somatostatins) that increases as you age — this allows your hGH to flow at more optimal levels.
The Morning Blend uses ceramides, collagen, and hyaluronic acid to help reduce fine lines and wrinkles, smooth skin, and better protect the skin from future damage. The blend also contains coffee bean extract to aid in the increase of energy and improvement of mental sharpness.
SeroVital ADVANCED also contains a groundbreaking patented Smart Release Technology – containing wild mint, lady's mantle, olive leaves, and cumin extracts – that helps control cravings, improves digestion, and decreases appetite.
I have been taking my SeroVital ADVANCED for over one month now. I take the red and white tablets (morning blend) with my greek yogurt that I usually have for breakfast. After having taken these for a month, I noticed gradual changes. My skin seemed more supple, meaning that it did not feel as dry as it usually does. I have had incredible energy, and my moods have been great. I definitely feel a renewed sense of well-being. It seems to be working on my appetite as well, because I have not been craving junk food or sweets like I normally do.have noticed that I sleep
As for the results I feel from taking the evening blend, I have noticed that I sleep much sounder. It doesn't seem to take me as long to fall asleep, either. I awake feeling very rested. I kind of feel as though my well-being has been revitalized, and I do not feel as sluggish as I had been feeling before I started taking SeroVital ADVANCED.
SeroVital ADVANCED is available for $119 for a 30-day supply on SeroVital.com, in stores and online at Ulta Beauty!
And did you know that SeroVital also has a formulation for the hair? Many women start to notice that their hair is not as thick or as lustrous as it once was as they get older. And those dreaded grays? Do they ever end? Yes, they can! SeroVital Hair Regeneres is the solution for these most annoying hair concerns!
This powerful two-step system uses clinically validated ingredients that target your hair issues both from the outside in and the inside out.
This unique system is not only designed to reverse graying and reduce age-related hair loss — it actually improves the overall health of your hair*.
- Optimize the scalp environment
- Make hair look thicker and fuller
- Strengthen hair and reduce breakage*
- Improve shine and luster*
- Take fewer trips to the salon
I have been taking SeroVital Hair Regeneres for about a month now. I take two of the soft gels each morning. I apply the Advanced Hair Thickening Serum before I go to bed at night. I apply a few droppers full to my scalp onto my damp or dry hair. I add the drops onto my hair, and gently massage it into my scalp.
After a little over 30 days of use, I have noticed that my hair looks and feels lustrous and healthy. It has definitely become stronger, and I have noticed less breakage and split ends. My hair has grown an inch, and this is amazing because my hair has always grown so slowly. I am extremely happy with the results. (My photo above shows how long my hair has grown.)

ANTI -AGING PRODUCTS AND INGREDIENTS: DON’T GET CREAMED BY FALSE HOPE IN A JAR.
SEPARATING THE SKINCARE HEROES FROM THE ZEROES
Here's what is certain: There are no firming or tightening products whose results can duplicate what you derive from in-office procedures such as dermal fillers, Botox, lasers, or cosmetic surgery. Board - Certified Denver plastic surgeon Manish Shah says, “There are anti- aging products or ingredients that do perform significantly better than others and can make a profound difference in the skin’s appearance while others are simply “false hope in a jar.”
Why don’t most products work the way they claim? Almost without exception, when you buy a product claiming to tighten skin, its effects, if any, are due to ingredients such as film-forming agents. Just like the name states, film-forming agents form a film on the skin, and that can make the skin "feel" tighter. The effect is temporary and you won't see a noticeable lifting of sagging skin, but the sensation is often enough to convince women that the product is working. Dr. Shah stresses that “Skin "feeling" tighter is not the same as making a real change for the better in the tone or laxity of your skin. Using what really works will get you closer to the results you want.”
Dr. Shah says, “Sunscreen SPF 30 or above is the best antiaging cream you can use. It prevents skin cancer as well as UVA rays that cause loss of collagen and wrinkles in the skin. Reapply every 2 hours, use a powder sun block and carry in your pocketbook for quick and easy sunscreen touchups. My favorite powder sunblock is Colorescience, and my favorite base sunscreens have titanium or zinc oxide in them as active ingredients.”
Retinoids work great to reduce fine lines and wrinkles and help boost collagen production,” says Dr. Shah.” He adds, “Over the counter retinols are good, Neutrogena makes a good one or prescriptions such as Retin- A.”
Glycolic acid also reduces fine lines and wrinkles and helps fade pigmentary damage from the sun. “I often have patients alternate nights with retinoid and glycolic,” says Dr. Shah.
Vitamin C is a great antioxidant which reduces free radical damage and is great for anti-aging and helps brighten the skin. Dr. Shah often recommends it in the morning, underneath sunblock, or at night if patients are too sensitive to tolerate retinoids and glycolic acid.
Ceramides are a type of lipid found in the membrane of cells. Dr. Shah states that “They help hold skin cells together, forming a protective layer that plumps the skin and retains moisture. Ceramide levels decrease as we age which leads to loss of hydration, less skin turnover, and dryer, more damaged skin. Replenishing the skin's ceramide levels will help restore moisture and fortify the skin's natural barrier, helping skin look and feel younger.” So use a ceramide containing moisturizer for your whole body daily.
Hydroquinone works to even out sun spots, blotches, and mottled skin. A little hydroquinone goes a long way. "It's the most effective ingredient for bleaching skin," says Dr. Shah. Hydroquinone fades hyperpigmentation by blocking the enzyme that triggers melanin production in the skin.
Green Tea Extract is loaded with nutrients called polyphenols, which have been shown to fight free radicals. It is an amazing antioxidant. Studies have found that ingredients in green tea can reduce sun damage and may protect against skin cancer when applied topically. Dr. Shah offers that, “Using green tea extract under sunscreen can provide an extra dose of protection. Polyphenols in creams and lotions may help slow signs of aging, reduce sagging skin and decrease wrinkles.”
The majority of anti-aging creams are still based on moisturizers such as mineral oil. Wrinkles look worse when they are dry, so any kind of moisturizer helps, but it’s only temporary and doesn't address the root cause of the wrinkles such as collagen loss, free radical damage, sun damage, and environmental factors. Don't be fooled by the anti-aging labels. Unless there is an actual "active ingredient" such as retinol, the benefit is just moisture but nothing else.
B Vitamins Many forms of vitamin B (like B12) can only be absorbed in the small intestine, so no matter how much is loaded into your moisturizer or serum, it's not going to make a difference. "Vitamins like niacin can have an effect on the skin's texture and color, but your skin can't absorb them," Dr. Shah explains. If you really want to tap into the power of vitamin B to improve your skin's glow and appearance, stick to eating leafy greens like spinach, asparagus, beans, and peas.
Caffeine. Much like a Starbucks Latte for your brain, caffeine in skin creams can give a boost to your skin, too. Until it wears off. "Caffeine can temporarily reduce puffiness, especially around your eyes," explains Dr. Shah. "But don't expect permanent results."
Botanical extracts are ingredients extracted from plants (flowers, roots, stems, trees, etc.) for use in skin care for everything from healing blemishes to reducing fine wrinkles. They have been used for centuries and have anecdotal purposes in many cultures. The issue: Botanical extracts need to remain on your skin in order to work. Dr. Shah explains that “In cleansers, there is simply not enough contact time on your skin for any true anti-aging benefit to take place. Another issue is that most botanical extracts are water soluble, which means that the moment you wet your skin and begin to wash your face, they’re watered down and rendered useless.”
Collagen and elastin in anti-wrinkle products. Collagen and elastin in skin-care products can serve as good water-binding agents, but they cannot fuse with your skin's natural supply of these supportive elements. In most cases, the collagen molecule is too large to penetrate into the skin. But even when it is made small enough to be absorbed it cannot bind with the collagen existing in the skin, and there isn't any research indicating otherwise.

Who doesn’t want a clear, glowing complexion? Slathering on serums and creams and staying out of the sun can only do so much. And taking ingestible collagen alone—while currently a big trend in the wellness community—has a lot of experts unconvinced. So when the product developers at Musely decided to create their own sippable beauty product, they wanted it to have some serious beautifying impact.
Musely's Hello Beautiful Collagen & Multi Vitamin Powder can help you look beautiful from the inside out.
While other supplements need large doses of collagen to be effective, Hello Beautiful’s Beauty Boost allows the use of less collagen with greater effect, leaving plenty of room for other skin-beneficial vitamins, including biotin and antioxidant-rich Vitamins C and E. It’s also rich in Vitamins B and D, which strengthen your immune system and boost energy levels.
I am definitely a believer in beauty supplements! I received samples of Hello Beautiful’s Beauty Boost in delicious Wild Berry flavor to review. I have been using it for a month now. My very favorite way to drink it is to pour it into the blender with water and ice. I blend it into kind of a slushy drink. It really tastes refreshing.
After taking these supplements daily for a little under a month, I have noticed that my lines look softened. My skin is actually firmer, and has a radiant glow. I am always told that I look too young to have three married children and one grandchild. I love the compliments!
Each box contains 20 sachets and retails between $26-$29 at Musely.com.

I am a huge believer in the benefits of taking 'beauty supplements.' Like I have stated before, true beauty starts from within. You can use every anti-aging product on the market, but if you aren't taking care of your skin from the inside, then it won't make too much of a difference.
I have been taking NeoCell supplements for a few years now, and they have really made a difference in the condition of my skin. I am always told that I look a lot younger than my actual age.
I am currently taking two of NeoCell's top selling products to keep my skin looking as youthful as possible. They are as follows: Super Ceramides Skin Hydrator capsules and Neocell Super Collagen Powder.
Super Ceramides is a nutricosmetic solution scientifically formulated for healthy skin hydration. This unique blend of beauty-enhancing nutrients promotes skin hydration, elasticity and cellular turnover for glowing, supple skin. The star ingredient of this formula is rapid action ceramides. Ceramides are plant-based lipids clinically shown to increase moisture and elasticity in just 15 days. Additional beauty-enhancing ingredients like hyaluronic acid, pine bark, astaxanthin, lutein and coconut water make this the ultimate skin hydration supplement. Super Ceramides works synergistically with NeoCell's Super Collagen C formula. As with all NeoCell products, Super Ceramides is both non-GMO and gluten free. I take two of these capsules daily with a meal. Since using this product, my skin has been so supple and dewey.
NeoCell Super Collagen has been clinically shown to increase skin hydration by 21%.

You have probably heard the expression, "Beauty is only skin deep." That is a very true statement in more ways than one. To keep your skin beautiful and youthful, you must take very good care of it. You can use all of the most expensive lotions and potions on the market, but none of it will really do you any good until you take care of what is below the surface of your skin. As we age, our skin loses its ability to produce collagen. Collagen is an essential element to keeping the skin firm and wrinkle-free.
CORREXIKO's collagen supplement nourishes your skin from the inside out - so that your skin has everything it needs to stay firm, elastic and youthfully radiant.
Your Nutritional Target:
Boost your skin’s radiance and create dewy, plump and super soft skin with a blend that includes a Hydrolysed Marine Collagen Complex.
Correxiko Close Up Collagen Booster powder replaces the collagen lost through stress, natural aging and constant, intensive exercise. Collagen is an integral part of the skin and is a vital component of skin firmness, elasticity and the youthful glow. As collagen production decreases around the age of 18 and the effects of low collagen is visible by the age of 30, the Collagen Booster stands in the gap and provides the collagen your skin needs to feel fresher and look younger.
Your Daily Dose of Beauty:
The Collagen Booster enhances the look of aging skin by boosting collagen levels, improving elasticity, and preventing thinner skin as you age.
HIGH DOSE MARINE COLLAGEN
Our Hydrolysed Collagen is a more bioavailable form than Type 1 and Type 2 collagen powders, and is derived from 100% French Marine Collagen (with absolutely NO bovine or porcine collagen). You’re receiving all of the benefits of this doctor recommended, ground-breaking formula that includes a booster complex of skin healthy ingredients.
My Experience: I am thankful to say that I have been taking excellent care of my skin since I was in my twenties. And, being a beauty blogger, I am blessed to be able to experience the finest of skin care products to help me on my quest to look as youthful as I possibly can. I have been taking the Correxiko Collagen Booster supplement for a little over two weeks now. I blend it into my morning smoothie every day. It is a powder, and it does not have a taste. It easily blends with the fruit and ice in my blender.
I have definitely been noticing that my skin looks radiant and feels a lot firmer The crease between my brows has greatly diminished. I think that my skin tone has improved and my skin's hydration level has definitely increased.

In the world of supplements and beauty ingestibles, there are more and more Hair, Skin & Nails products hitting the shelves these days. With so many brands and differing ingredients, it can be daunting to choose which option may be best for you.
SeabuckWonders has developed a guide to help buyers understand the differences and seek out the benefits that are most relevant to them in this sea of options. The guide includes an array of product attributes in the marketplace that compares many factors:
- Product Form
- Price Range
- Vegan / Not Vegan
- Omegas / No Omegas
- Amount of Biotin
- Serving Size
- Other Nutrients
- Special Notes
One major difference to note is that of ALL the brands of Hair, Skin & Nails products currently available, only ONE contains sea buckthorn – SeabuckWonders. Why is this significant? Because sea buckthorn oil contains the highest amount of Omega-7 found in nature. Omega-7 is the number one fatty acid for health and beauty applications.

Super Berry Powers Your Brain
Sea Buckthorn – Not JUST for a Pretty Face!
The sea buckthorn berry has gotten some great press over the years in relation to its magnificent nutritional profile and how it benefits a myriad of health and beauty concerns—particularly its power to combat problematic skin issues and provide immunity and inflammation support. These benefits have been publicized a great deal, with Dr. Oz even nicknaming sea buckthorn the “miracle berry.”
Indeed it is a miracle berry, and now there are even more reasons to integrate this amazing plant-based source of vitamins (and the only known plant that contains all four essential fatty acids—Omega-3, -6, -9 and the rare Omega-7) into your daily routine. Consider the following information food for thought, manna for your mind, or another great way to power your brain.
Here are some recent findings to ignite your neurotransmitters: The Alternative Daily states, “…healthy fats contained in sea buckthorn are excellent for maintaining brain health, and may assist in preventing or healing conditions such as Alzheimer’s and dementia.”
In taking a deeper dive, Kevin Owen, Ph.D., (NAFTA head of technical marketing and scientific affairs for Lonza Inc., Allendale, NJ) states, “Among various other factors such as family history, gender and age, DHA levels seem to be important in affecting the risk of dementia. Increased DHA intake was found to be protective against cognitive decline, and the risk of developing Alzheimer’s in various studies.” The article goes on to underscore the importance of DHA in the brain, citing a new study that links low blood plasma levels of DHA with higher incidences of Alzheimer’s and cognitive impairment.
It is important to note here that sea buckthorn, in addition to being a phenomenal source of Omegas (-3, -6, -7 and -9, including the -3, -6, -9 coveted 1:1 ratio), also contains DHA and EPA—those little rascals we need to protect us from brain farts and senior moments.
And keep in mind these potential cognitive benefits associated with the sea buckthorn berry are just one component of the multi-faceted powers of the “miracle berry.” Certainly an important one, however, don’t forget about all of the other great benefits including:
- Immune System Response
- Gastrointestinal & Digestive Support
- Liver Health
- Women’s Health
- Vision Support & Dry Eye
- Oral Health, Teeth, & Gums
- Skin & Beauty
- Skin Ailments & Conditions
- Weight Management
- Inflammation Response
- Cardiovascular Health
- Sun/UV Stress
If your head can’t quite wrap around all these amazing benefits of one little orange berry, check out this incredible educational website that provides all the latest information about the power of sea buckthorn: www.seabuckthorninsider.com.
And, if you’re scratching your head to find a source for the highest quality sea buckthorn products, save your fingernails; SeabuckWonders, the original sea buckthorn company, is proud to offer a full line of sea buckthorn products for consumers to integrate into their daily routine.
