Celeste shares her best spa secrets.
My spa secrets: You know what, my biggest spa secret is skin authority. I would love to tell you something else, but really I developed this product line all around what women my age need, and men my age, and I think a great skin care line is important. I think great coaching, you know, I am really blessed to be in the spa industry where I have access to a lot of people who are knowledgeable about overall health, well-being, because I think it really is simple. If you lead a healthy lifestyle, and that means not restrictive diets or overabundance of exercise but just walking from you car, those extra steps, you know, drinking enough water every day, taking time to eat an overall healthy balanced diet and taking good proactive care of your skin, and you can look 10 years younger without any intervention of surgery or anything else. Anything I can say about anti-aging secrets? I think that there is a misconception that somehow as you grow older that you have less beauty, and I think the beautiful thing about growing older is not only do you have a beauty you did not have before internally through your life’s lessons, but I think also there is a radiance that comes through in confidence, and I think as you age you become more confident of who you are. And if you can combine that inner confidence and beauty with a beautiful exterior, wow, is that an anti-aging treatment and I think that is where being able to take advantage of growing older, and add it with all the new anti-aging tools that we have. I mean from a product technology point of view, we have technology we did not have 10 years ago. The ability to make what I call nanomolecular or very small structures so they absorb. Being able to have high concentrations that we can sell over-the-counter that we used to sell by prescription only and professional guidance where we know so much more than we used to guide people through those decisions, so we have more tools than ever. There is really no excuse to not look amazing as you grow older.
