How I Got This Face Without BOTOX

How I Got This Face Without BOTOX

Not a day goe201710101727s by I’m complimented on my skin. I bless you my precious Mother. My Mother was Portuguese, born in the gorgeous Madeira Islands. I look like her. Genetics will carry you a long way it’s true. That may not include ‘over the hill’ and beyond.

If you’re reading this in your teens, this is for especially for you. If your reading this in your 20’s, 30’s…this is totally for you! What you do now, today, will reveal itself in your mid years. Without a doubt. You will not escape pigmentation, lines, bigger skin pores, dark circles, dehydrated ‘old’ looking skin in your 40’s and 50’s if you live badly.

I’m going to share in a nutshell much of what I’ve shared over the years here on my blog, and various sites.

These beauty tips apply to any day of your younger or more experienced life. Lines or no lines. Lines do not detract from beauty. Poor health does. The secret is to stay vibrantly well. Day in day out. I take no cheat days, or cheat meals. How much of what I do you wish to apply is entirely up to you! 🙂

Abi’s top ten secrets for having flawless skin:

Hydrate – inside and out. Read – healthy cells and plump lips!

Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables – 70% raw – organic plant based diet.

Sleep 7+ hours, at least 2 of them before midnight.

Get sunshine – daily.

Trust, hope, have faith 🙂 people who stress less live longer, and have more beautiful skin.

Self control – in the good stuff. Like food. Eating until your 80% full is a thing!

No cheat days – ever – that’s just me – and I’ve never been drunk. Ever.

The 3 E’s…Exfoliate, Eliminate – keep your insides healthy, Exercise. Movement is essential for glowing beautiful skin.

Only cold pressed organic oils and plants such as aloe, or things from my organic kitchen.

Raw chocolate. Daily! See! No deprivation!

Love to hear about any of your favourite internal or external organic supplements or products. Some of mine include Beauty Blend by Superfeast, Wild C by Eden Health Foods, Spirulina, Barley Grass, Wheatgrass juice, tumeric. On skin, I love using Squalene – an extract from olive oil, and essentail oils of Myrrh and Frankincense.

That’s all just in a nutshell! Maybe one day I’ll feature an entire chapter. Have a beautiful day everyone!

Love, Abigail xxx

    Excellent post beautiful birthday girl !
    I would like to add that although stress is inevitable in this modern day life it is how we balance it in our lives. You can get paranoid , anxious or sleepless..or you can take steps to not burden your precious body, mind and heart with added stressors.I’ve found that taking breaks from technology, writing in a journal at night, reading relaxing books ( just started this gem ), practicing yoga, doing walking meditation ( breathing deeply when walking essentially ), doing therapeutic art, BEING IN NATURE MOST OF ALL help so much.
    Finding joy in how we are/what we have already makes me feel even more youthful. It will show in your face how you feel in your heart and soul.
    Been juicing lots of turmeric lately and drinking kombucha daily and that seems to help my digestion hence my skin. Also use a gentle organic sunblock on my face/neck/chest daily ( but have to scrub it off with clay soap after ). I take a multi-vitamin and calcium/magnesium/zinc supplements every morning.

    Thank you for letting me share.

    Wishing you a beautiful day !

    Hi Abi

    Came across your website via Instagram and really connected with your philosophy, tips and insights.

    Just wondering what you use as an exfoliant? I read somewhere that you used a Byron-made scrub but I can’t seem to find where I read it second time around.

    Also purchased the YL Frankincense and Sandalwood after your recommendation – it’s a great company and I trust their products.

    Would really love to see some posts on your daily eating plan and perhaps some of the books you mentioned reading as a teenager that influenced your life path. They were obviously very influential.

    All the best to you, thank you for your great example.

      Thank-you Fiona, appreciate your kind words/feedback. 🙂 Yes I make my own body scrub you can see the basic recipe which has evolved a lot since, I must update it! I very gently use a little on my face at times. There’s a recipe on my Instagram for a coffee one as well. An excellent facial exfoliant/cleanser is bi-carb. So cheap too! I mix it with coconut yogurt, then smooth onto my face five mins, wash off. Amazing! <3
