On May 29th, Hearst Books released 7 Years Younger Instant Makeovers

It is the latest book in the trusted anti-aging series, 7 Years Younger. The first book, 7 Years Younger, was a New York Times best seller and was backed by Dr. Oz!  The second, 7 Years Younger: The Anti-Aging Breakthrough Diet, has been a runaway hit with readers.

7 Years Younger Instant Makeovers, by the editors of Woman’s Day magazine, is packed with 101 instant makeovers, quick and easy tricks to make you look and feel younger in an instant. With simple tricks on how to apply the right make up, which haircut compliments your bone structure, which foods help brighten your hair and skin along with advice on how to reduce stress, get fit, and sleep better, 7 Years Younger Instant Makeovers helps you make over your look and your life.

Having turned 40 last year, I appreciate this makeover book written for women of my age.  

I’ve picked up more than a few tips from it and am trying to incorporate a number of them into my daily routine.

7 Years Younger Instant Makeovers gives women the information and tools they need to look – and feel – younger.  Once you’ve mastered the 7 Years Younger philosophy, you’ll never feel old ever again!

So I did a couple of the makeovers myself.  The first one from the “Refresh Your Face” chapter.  I chose to do the Mini-Makeover #1 which is “Give Your Face a Lift.”  It’s a great tutorial on defining and lifting and make your face look shapelier – and your skin more radiant.  It’s fast (which is super, because I personally don’t like to spend a lot of time putting makeup on).  I took a before and an after picture (excuse the selfies with the bad bathroom lighting, although despite the unprofessional photos I think you can still see a significant difference).

1. What the mini-makeover has you do is start with a base of your choice; liquid foundation, BB cream or tinted moisturizer, to even out your skin tone and texture.  It gives tips on where you should be applying in order to ‘catch’ all your sagging skin and to even out your facial canvas.  Plus it gives you suggestions of products to purchase to help you achieve the results.

2. Once the base is dry, lightly brush a matte bronzer that’s two shades darker than your skin tone in a “3” shape along one side of your face.  Giving you all the tips to make it look natural if you make it too defined at first.  And then of course you repeat the steps on the other side of your face.  No one expects you to go out lopsided 😉  This step gives the face the illusion of a more defined structure, while adding depth.

3. Finish with a bright but soft blush.  With instructions on how to apply it correctly for a lifting effect.

Then using tips in another chapter on how to make your teeth look whiter without professional treatment, I added a bright lipstick to the already applied mini-makeover, and Voila!  A fast instant fix that can take years off your face.

I also have been regularly using the Mini-Makeover #3 “Do Yogurt Better” from the chapter “Your Food Fix.”

Instead of eating a cup of lowfat yogurt on the run or grabbing a parfait with a little fruit and granola, you can make it more filling – and pack it with 7 Years Younger anti-aging nutrients too.  Here’s how:

1. Switch to nonfat Greek yogurt.  A 6-ounce serving has twice as much protein, which will keep you satisfied longer.  

2. Swap out granola for a fiber-rich cereal, nuts and/or seeds.  A spoonful of nuts or seeds adds the hunger-taming trifecta of protein, fat and fiber.

3. Add sweetness (and fiber) with a cup of fruit.  Berries are bursting with antioxidants, which help your mind stay sharp.

You can order 7 Years Younger Instant Makeovers now directly from Hearst Magazines.  Which has an exclusive free trial online offer that is not available in stores!

If you like it you can keep it and you get a bonus of their Get Fit & Eat Well: Anti-Aging Secrets, Defeat Clutter Now! and Sweet Indulgences Under 300 Calories.
