A new program developed by the beauty gurus at Allure.com promises to help you (and me) look younger within the span of 30 days. Let me take this moment to say … I love you, Allure!
Here’s how the program works: Create your free Allure.com account. Then, each day you log on to the site you’ll get a new, easy anti-aging tip. The tips are really more like articles or blog posts, with advice from experts in the health or beauty fields. My tip today was to try to get an extra hour of sleep each night, and the article suggested a few ways for me to try and do that.
Each time you try a tip, check it off on your progress list to track your way through the program. Each time you check off a tip, you’re entered to win a collection of anti-aging products. How smart is that?? We all need a little encouragement along the way. One lucky winner will score a trip for two to the Golden Door Spa (I’m dying to go there!). Other prizes include anti-aging products from Clinique, Neutrogena, Olay, Lancome and Avon.
On your account screen, there’s even a place to keep private notes to yourself — little reminders of things you’d like to try.
For each of the tips, I found it helpful to be able to read through the user comments. Seeing what other women have to say about a tip really takes the program to the next level.
User Peggy3 left this suggestion in the comments:
“my best sleeping tips……ban the acohol. if you need a solid sleep for the next day, take 1 paracetamol before bed, dulls the nerves a little….but don’t do it often. it is very mild and harmless. always have fresh air in the room, and yes….pitch black room, for your circadian cycles.”
I don’t know what paracetamol is (and I would never advise taking anything without investigating it first)… but I made a note to myself on my account screen to find out.
“The makeover program cuts through the clutter of the different information you hear about anti-aging,” says Fiona Gibb, Allure.com web editor.
Allure’s editors and their outside experts chose only the best tips they could find, suggestions backed up by a lot of evidence. Along with product recommendations, there are tips and tricks from sleep experts, as well as hair and makeup artists.
“It’s really a combination of the advice that we’ve gotten from top experts on things you can do across all areas of your life to start turning back the clock,” says Fiona.
Age spots and wrinkles may not be big concerns of yours (yet), but, girlfriend, even if you’re a teenager, wear sunscreen on your neck! You’ll thank me when you’re 32. Taking steps now to look and feel your best later in life doesn’t have to be a gargantuan chore. With that in mind, check out Make Yourself Over: Look Younger in 30 Days.
