Q: Hey Alina, do you have any advice on anti-aging treatments and foods? I know girls in their early 30's may not know much, but you seem wise, so thought I would ask.
A: Ha! Thanks for the compliment! While some people may think that I am in my early 30's or some even think late 20's, I am actually now in my 40's and up until last year I haven't had any skin care routine.
Of course, there is something to be said about genes, but also there is a lot to be said on what you do with those genes. There are some easy things that I have been doing for years that definitely helped looking and feeling youthful.
In this podcast and video I share my tips on how to keep looking young and yes, I even share about a procedure I have done and why.
If you are looking for a simple skincare routine and some tips, tune in. And if you have tips you want to share, please do as well!
Also, one tip I didn't mention is that sleep/rest is crucial. I read somewhere that a month before our birthdays we may feel tired and need more me-time, so this is why I haven't posted in two weeks - I have been taking time for myself and honoring the need to rest in between cooking for clients.
Sending you lots of love today and always!
