Do the Body Good in 2013 with Rosalie Brown!

It’s the beginning of 2013 and we have a great year ahead of us! A new year brings the opportunity to do the body good! Let’s get on track (or back on track!) with the RIGHT tools to create the healthiest and strongest body possible!

One of my favorite fitness sayings is, “Being uncomfortable for 30 to 60 minutes a day exercising is better than being uncomfortable your whole life”.  Yes I said it; sometimes we need to get a little uncomfortable to achieve what is worthwhile.  Nobody knows better than Jillian Michaels from The Biggest Loser about how to get us a little uncomfortable. If you LOVE to workout at home with minimal tools, I recommend Jillian’s new Body Revolution DVD set.  There are 15 DVD’s to keep us inspired!

If you’re in need of new workout equipment, I suggest Fitglide! It works the whole body on a simple track and the two workout DVDs included are less than 20 minutes. Keep in mind that a one hour workout is only 4 per cent of your day; we all have time for a 20 - 30 minute workout!!

I have been a trainer for over 25 years and in my experience those who plan and have the right tools have the most success staying on track.  Let me and all the amazing fitness products that are available at The Shopping Channel help you achieve your goals.

Small daily improvements lead to staggering long term results!

Introducing the ivee, a voice controlled talking radio brought to you by Interactive Voice Inc. Just say it and the iveealarm clock will tell you the time, alarm, temperature and allow you to select sleep modes and sounds. It also has a built-in digital FM radio which makes this the ideal alarm clock in anybody’s home or office.

You say “Hello ivee” and she listens allowing you to speak over 30 voice commands. Have you ever had trouble with setting your alarm clock in the past? Is the one you have ancient and looks like it should be in the movie Back to the Future? If so, this slick white base unit with a built-in nightlight works right out of the box. It has a 5 inch LED display which is easy to see from far away. For the snoozers out there, this clock features up to a 9 minute snooze time. In case of a power outage, the included round button cell battery will last for up to 100 hours so you will always wake up on time.

It features voice recognition technology power by NLP (Natural Language Processor) so there is no training required, just talk and ivee™ listens – all you have to do is ask.

BeautyCrazed Says IT Cosmetics Is A Hit For Summer!

Thank you, BeautyCrazed, for the great IT Cosmetics Review!

Taken from BeautyCrazed

IT Cosmetics Brow Pencil
When I saw this universal eyebrow pencil, I thought I had to try it because I didn’t believe it would work…the surprise? It does work. First of all, I’m not a fan of brow pencils - I prefer brow shadow duos - but after using this brow pencil, I got such a natural effect that I’ve incorporated this pencil in my daily makeup routine.

Now here is the kicker: I asked my blonde friend Nina to test it and again she loved it. Obviously, she didn’t need to use as much as me. She was a bit pissed though, because she had just spent a good deal of money on makeup including a Lancome brow pencil and mascara (her Definicils Lancome mascara was fabulous, however)…oh well that’s what friends are for!

I have no idea if it would work on a red-head but it worked on my very dark thick eyebrows and on my friend’s light eyebrows, so to me it delivered on its “universal” promise. Don’t ask me how this is possible, I’m still scratching my head on this one.  You can buy this pencil only on the Shopping Channel in Canada ($24) or on the IT Cosmetics website.

Chatelaine Shares Anti-Aging Ingredients That Really Work

There are some things in life we assume work perfectly - Our coffee maker, airplanes, and batting your lashes when an officer pulls you over. However, there has been much skepticism around the concept of anti-aging ingredients. Are we really getting what we need out of our skin care routine?

Depending on certain factors like your genetics or how much time you crisped yourself on those hot summer days in your teens, your aging skin will reflect the choices you made, or even the ones you didn’t. How do we know that we are doing the best for our skin? What should we look for as consumers to ensure we are investing our money into a suitable product?

Here are some ingredients taken from Chatelaine’s article, and a few item suggestions, to help you on your path to skin enlightenment.

Alpha lipoic acid: Lipoic acid is an antioxidant compound involved in healthy blood sugar balance and insulin action. This dual action provides highly protective, anti-aging benefits for our skin by reducing the risk of glycation — the abnormal attachment of sugar to our skin cells causing wrinkling and aging.

Tea extracts: A 2003 study from the University Hospitals of Cleveland and Case Western Reserve University found that certain antioxidant compounds in white tea extract are effective in improving skin cell immunity and offering protection from the damaging effects of the sun. Evidently, a skin cream containing these tea extracts may offer potent anti-aging and anti-cancer benefits.

DMAE: Dimethylaminoethanol (DMAE) boosts the production of acetylcholine, as well as a component of cell membranes, phosphatidylcholine. DMAE may be the first clinically proven agent to effectively combat facial sagging.

Vitamin C: Topical use of a product containing stabilized vitamin C can increase the production of collagen in the skin. It can also promote skin cell growth and aid in cell regeneration, which translates to younger-looking skin and improved firmness. The form of vitamin C used in your skin care products is important because it has the potential to become unstabilized, which leads to a potentially harmful source of free-radical stress. Ascorbyl–palmitate, the fat soluble form of vitamin C, appears to be the most beneficial and stable type for use in skin care products. It should be present in significant concentrations to boost collagen production in the skin.

So, remember that although some damage might have been done, there are ways to revive the elasticity of your skin with the help of the aforementioned ingredients.
