Spoon Pressing, A Simple Way to Erase Aging
Wouldn’t it be nice if there was one perfect miracle product that was perfect for every person in the world?
What if all you had to do, was to use this product every day and your skin would be perfect, your life would be perfect and the world would finally realize you were perfect?
It ain’t gonna happen ~ at least not yet.
Great skin as well as good health in general is a combination of food, exercise, environment and genes. Along the way I’ve found some products and some ideas I think have helped me and I’d like to share them with you.
One of my favorite techniques is Spoon Pressing. This generates a lot of buzz among my friends so maybe you will enjoy it also.
Basically Spoon Pressing is ironing out the wrinkles in your skin with a spoon.
My friend, Clarice gave this technique the name Spoon Pressing because we didn’t know what else to call it. This technique came from a talk show years ago ~ maybe 17 years or more. I’m sorry I have no idea which talk show but they were talking about procedures done at expensive spas and this was an inexpensive way to do one of those expensive treatments. Where ever it came from, this is how you do it.
- First cleanse your face. It is best done in the evening ~ for all the reasons moisturizing and skin repair works better at night.
- After cleansing, pat dry and dab a little Grapeseed Oil around the eye. I keep in a 2 ounce Glass Bottles with eyedropper so it is handy. Note added 3/15/14 – Since there is now so much controversy associated with grapeseed oil; I have switched to using either olive oil, coconut oil or my own Coconut/Jojoba Oil Cream
- Using a spoon warmed with hot water, press gently with the bowl of the spoon around your eye. Be very careful not to let the spoon get too hot or it will burn. Use an ironing motion and keep the spoon and the skin moist and ‘slippery’ by adding water or oil to the skin or spoon as needed.
- How often do I do this? Whenever I think of it. Sometimes that’s one time a year or three times a week. Obviously, the more often you do this, the better the results.
- The oil is very good for skin but be sure to blot any excess before going to bed. What happens if you don’t is another entire story.
Below is a recipe to help extend butter. With the current research showing that butter is a healthy fat; we no longer dilute it with oil but if for any reason you would like to; here it is:
Mix 1/4 cup Grapeseed Oil or coconut oil with 1 stick of butter until smooth. Adding the oil to the butter allows you to spread it easily almost as soon as you take it out of the refrigerator. It also makes it go farther.
