Look 5 Years Younger with These $5 Beauty Secrets, Says Dr. Oz
It’s a fact: looking younger comes at a price. On a recent episode of The Dr. Oz Show, beauty insiders say that cosmetic buyers are paying too much to turn back the clock when in fact there are $5 beauty trick solutions to looking 5 years younger.
“Our ultimate beauty insider says that you are probably overspending on every single one of your products,” says Dr. Oz as he introduces special guest beauty consultant Lora Condon who shows women 3 ways on how to look 5 years younger for only $5.
$5 Beauty Secret #1: Borage Oil
“For moisturizing your skin you are going to be shocked,” says Ms. Condon as she introduces Borage oil for the skin. Borage oil is a dietary supplement that comes in a gel capsule. Reportedly, borage oil is believed to be effective in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis―an autoimmune disorder marked by inflammation in the joints―and is possibly also useful for treating eczema. Borage oil is rich in gamma-linoleic acid (GLA)―an omega-6 fatty acid.
To use borage oil you simply squeeze the oil out of the gel capsule and gently rub it into the skin. According to Ms. Condon, the borage oil is good for the skin as it is full of omega oils and has anti-inflammatory properties. She states that not a lot is needed to apply to the face, and that if you have any leftover it can be applied around the eyes and even on the eyebrows to condition the hairs.
$5 Beauty Secret #2: Meadowfoam Sea
“Meadowfoam Sea comes from a plant in the North Pacific—it looks like a sea of foam when it’s blooming. And it’s very, very anti-aging on the skin,” says Ms. Condon as she explains to viewers that it works particularly well as an anti-aging product for the lips due to its high anti-oxidant and vitamin E content.
The Meadowfoam plant is well-known by agricultural researchers for its long fatty acid, high vegetable oil content. Among its reported beneficial properties, plant experts recommend the use of the oil from the Meadowfoam seed for applications that include skin moisturizing, UV radiation protection (sunscreen applications), providing a non-greasy feel, and its excellent properties for blending with other cosmetic oils to enhance their function.
Ms. Condon states that the oil of Meadowfoam Sea can be found in a lip balm product called “Sephora Super Nourishing Lip Balm” and that not only can it be applied on the lips, but also should be applied liberally to the skin surrounding the lips to help remove fine lines and wrinkles.
$5 Beauty Secret #3:Parsley Pesto Eye Mask
Dr. Oz tells viewers that his guest has a $5 beauty secret that can rid the dark circles under our eyes made from items that can be found in the refrigerator.
“This [dark circles under the eyes] is a really big problem for a lot of women, and so what we have here is a do-it-yourself ‘parsley pesto eye mask’,” says Ms. Condon.
To make the parsley pesto eye mask, Ms. Condon tells viewers to take 3 tablespoons of fresh parsley plus 2 tablespoons of plain yogurt and pulse it through a food processor to make into a fine paste. The paste is then applied to the skin under the eyes for up to 30 minutes. She says that typically the paste begins to dry between 15-20 minutes, and by 30 minutes it should be dry and ready to come off. She recommends washing the face with warm water only and not hot water.
