She says she is no ageless beauty but what do you call a 56years old woman who looks this GORGEOUS?.... Am sorry to say this, Miss Stone but you are ageless.
She is on the March cover of shape magazine wearing a bikini in a my-oh-my(pardon my enthusiasm ) pose which she is famously known for.
She is one of the very few Hollywood celebrities who hasn't had any facelift.
Well, she credits her good ol' Irish genes for that. She also listed some factors responsible for her look.
She says she isn't on any diet,she eats well and takes healthy meals. She eats bread and is not a great fan of pasta. She avoids fried foods,cream sauces and drinks lots of water.
She doesn't smoke,drink or do drugs.
She also says exercise and yoga are one of the keys to her look.
In her words,'If you look after yourself and use GOOD products, you won't need surgery or other intervention'.
I certainly agree with you Miss Stone. I certainly hope to have your kind of look when I attain your age. Lolz.

We are in February, the month of love,so I thought..... which DIY skin recipe would be perfect for this month? And while strolling around the internet(winks)... and....voila!, I stumbled upon a recipe for rose flowers. I was surprised to learn that this flower could be so useful and could be an asset to one's skin care regime.
Usefulness of Rose Flower

Rose water could be used in place of ordinary water when cleansing your face at anytime of the day. It has moisturising and astringent properties .
It can be used as a cleanser as it helps unclog and tighten pores, reduces acne problems and inflammations.....
It can also be used as a toner as it hydrates the skin and prevents wrinkles..

How to prepare it.

Get a pot of water and some rose petals.
Trim the petals.
Place in the pot of water.
Boil for about 20 minutes.
Strain the liquid.
Allow to cool and place in a refrigerator.
You can use this water in different ways.
1. As a makeup removal-just add olive oil to it.

2. For treatment of acne and pimples- add lemon water to it.

3. Toner, moisturizer and facial mask-Mix glycerine and rose water together thoroughly and apply on face. Suitable for oily skin.

4. For dry skin- make a paste of crushed/grounded almonds and rose water. Apply on face.

5. For sensitive skin(Facial mask).
Mix rosewater, milk, honey,add some oat meal. Make a paste and apply on face.

These are simple recipes you can do on your own for a glowing skin.
So........anytime you come across these fragile beauties, pick a handful of them because you never know when you are gonna be in dire need of them.
I would really love to learn about your own rose water recipe. You can send me a reply or a message to my email address.

Enjoy .......


Glycolic acid is one of a group of acids known as alpha hydroxyl acids(AHA). It is naturally found in sugarcane and grapes.


1. It is used to improve the skin appearance and texture.
2. It is used to reduce wrinkles, fine lines, acne scarring and hyper pigmentation.
3. It is also used to smoothen out uneven facial tone and other blemishes.


Side effects include
1. redness, stinging, skin sensitivity and tingling of the skin.
2. superficial peeling,light scabbing, swelling, sun sensitivity and skin irritation.
These conditions usually clear away within weeks of the procedure,but may last for several months.
Before any procedure,you should inform your dertamatoligist if you have a history of any skin problem or medical condition such as herpes, keloids,sun/wind burn in proposed area of treatment in the 2 weeks period prior to proposed treatment.


Glycolic acid works by clearing out dead skin cells which contribute to clogged pores and dull skin.


For beneficial and safe results, it is better to start with lower concentration of 20-40%,you can increase the level of concentration as you go for further treatments. Make sure each treatment is being done by a certified professional surgeon or dermatologist. I personally would not recommend over the counter treatments
The resultant effect is not usually worth the risk.
The skin must be moisturised and protected from the sun with a good sunscreen preferably one with SPF 30 and above, as any skin treated with glycolic acid is usually susceptible to burns and scarring.
