The secret to younger looking you is in your blood. The healthier your blood is, the younger you look and feel.
It is my friend's secret. I recently invade her bedroom and found the device she's using, I asked her for reviews and did some research as well. The secret is microcirculation of your blood. The device is transdermal, non invasive so zero pain. I am on it for a week now and I feel good the more i use it. It is called doxyva it delivers is vaporized purified CO2. ;]

As a Darjeeling Tea lover I'd suggest that Teas, especially green teas and white teas aid in speeding up the process of ageing throughout the body due to the presence rich antioxcidants. Also other benefits associated with drinking them cannot be overlooked
