In this video, I share 7 things no one tells you about building muscle after 40, so that you can continue building muscle optimally, despite getting older.

Natural Beauty Tips That Won’t Put You At Risk
If you are new to the beauty world, you might be confused about the sheer amount of information that is out there. You might even want to have a career in beauty. Here are a few tips and tricks to help make you look your very best.
A few drops of rich sweet almond oil can be a very useful addition to your skincare routine as well as for use in emergencies. Use it on dry skin to infuse heavy duty moisture, or apply it to your cuticles to make them noticeably softer before a manicure or pedicure.
You can apply makeup to your wide-set eyes in a way that is very flattering and can make the eyes appear closer together. First, apply a dark brown or navy eyeliner to the inner corners of your eyes, then blend it with a sponge. Apply your eyeshadow at the inner corners, then blend well outward.
If you have problems keeping wild and unruly brows tamed, you can keep them under control by spraying a brow brush with a bit of hairspray or clear brow gel, then gently combing your brows into place. For added shaping, you can even use a very small dab of Vaseline.
Drink a glass of milk every day to add to your beauty routine. Drinking at least one glass of milk a day will help your bones, body and skin. Milk provides you with protein and can help build muscle. It can also help you control your weight. Milk can be a great tool in your beauty or fitness regimen.
Put on lip balm every day. Lip balm is an essential ingredient in keeping your lips beautiful. You should apply it to your lips at night when you go to bed, and in the morning before you put any lipstick or gloss on your lips. Your lips will stay looking younger and fuller.
Change your pillowcase to make yourself more beautiful. A simple way to avoid unnecessary wrinkles is to switch your case from a cotton type to a satin or silk case. Cotton is drying and rough on skin and it known to cause wrinkles, typically, on the side of your face that you sleep on.
If you have an overly pale appearance this can be due to iron deficiency. Take a daily iron supplement or eat a spoonful of iron-rich manuka honey. This will help you look healthier and give your skin a natural glow.
If you intend to make use of fake eyelashes, your nightmare would be discovering an allergy to the glue. To avoid that, put a dab of the glue on your hand or arm before using it on your eyes. Testing a site for a few hours can determine if you are allergic or not. If there is no rash after this period of time, you are probably not allergic.
For those days when you have skimped on sleep the previous night and it shows in your eyes, skip lining or applying mascara to your lower lash line. Put the focus on your lids and upper lashes, and you are less likely to accentuate dark circles, making you look even more tired.
If you wear makeup every day, give your face a break once a month! This gives your face time to breathe, and helps maintain its health. You are sure to see a freshening of your skin’s appearance.
If you have discovered little white bumps under your eyes, know that these are called Milia and are quite common. They are a harmless form of a cyst caused by dry, dead cells being trapped under the skin. You can try exfoliation or use a moisturizer that includes an exfoliant with vitamin A to help them disappear, and prevent them in the future.
Don’t smoke if you want to achieve true beauty. Smoking leads to wrinkles and aged skin. It can also cause yellow teeth and sallow skin. Quitting smoking, or not starting in the first place, can help to keep you young and vibrant looking. Consider this before lighting up.
When going to the beach, use this trick to make your waist look narrower. With a white pencil liner, dot the shape of an egg on both sides, starting just below the rib cage. Then fill the egg area with a little self-tanner just one shade darker than your natural skin tone and blend it in.
Don’t look to magazine models for your ideal of beauty. You shouldn’t judge yourself based on their looks, but instead on your own efforts. This mindset will not only help you feel more beautiful, but it will also give you confidence in other aspects of your life.
If you are using makeup, you should be absolutely certain to use proper cleaning at the end of the day. If you leave traces of makeup on your skin while you sleep, it can lead to skin problems! This, in turn, will end up hurting the effect you are attempting to have with makeup in the first place.
If you have an important meeting, take special care with your perfume. Keep the scent light and airy so as not to overwhelm. You should put a small amount behind your ears and on your wrists. This will assure that you smell great when you are hugging and shaking hands at the meeting.
If you have ever suffered with hangnails, then you know ways to prevent them are a must. You need to keep your cuticles moisturized well as dry cuticles tear easier, which leads to your picking at them causing painful hangnails. To help this, apply cuticle oil at night before applying a deep moisturizer.
If you have ever suffered through a cold sore, then you know they are no fun and will want to stave them off at the first hint you are getting one. You could try to dab a small amount of moisturizer over the area to keep it from getting worse.
We hope you have found some inspiration and useful tips to enhance your natural beauty and look great. Simply by using these tips, you can create your own routine for beauty.
