Beauty Sleep

I love living in New York City but one of the drawbacks is the high level of stress that goes with living and working in the busiest city in the US.
Not putting down the computer or smartphone at night was my worst habit. So I started the practice of shutting them down and putting them away after 9pm.
Another thing that helps me sleep like a baby is exercise. If I can do about 40 minutes of aerobic exercise during the day, I can truly achieve delta stage – our deepest stage of sleep.
I came upon this article, on Huffington Post by Nicole Catanese, that talks about 5 sleeping rules that I found useful – here is an excerpt:
“You may think your sleep routine is as simple as PJs on, lights out, but really, most of us are not sleeping correctly. And what’s worse, letting proper sleep habits fall by the wayside is one of the easiest ways to put your health at risk. It’s time for a re-education: Follow these five simple rules for better, healthier rest.”
Rule #1: Set a seven-days-a-week schedule. “Regularity is vital — go to bed at the same time every night and wake up at the same time naturally, including weekends,” says Equinox advisory board member and sleep expert James B. Maas, Ph.D.”

Pili Oil – the anti-aging elixir!

I’m really very careful not just about what I eat, but also what I put on my skin. I don’t use any chemicals, alcohol or animal tested products. So this limits what I can use. Fortunately, I came across “MY Prime,” an anti-aging line that features two superior botanical oils – Pili oil and Moringa oil – which are both found in the Philippines.
My Prime Skin Care
Notably, My Prime, is the first brand to bring to market skin care products that incorporate Pili oil. I tested the whole product line and I really love the Transformative Night Cream.

I use it every night before bed. It’s natural and gets fully absorbed into my skin without leaving it feeling oily, I love the smell too!

The Founder, Tessa Yutaco, started the business in a quest for effective botanicals which ultimately lead me back to the Philippines, where she was born and raised until the age of 16. “As part of my research in the Philippines, I discovered the miraculous skin care and wellness benefits found in Pili and Moringa oils. At the same time, I worked with a leading skin care scientist in the United States to identify innovative active ingredients. Together we created products that fused the best of nature and science. The result is My Prime Anti-Aging Formulas.” The product line is sold on the website  www.makemyyours.com and in retailers in California.
