Exclusive Q&A with Susan Ciminelli

Q: How do you explain whats going on internally with someone, you have a girl who has pimples all over her cheeks, her chin, her forehead as opposed to a girl that just has pimples, you know, here and there. How do you explain whats going on inside of them?

A: Thats a really great question. Thats something I learned at a very early age there is somebody I was reading all of his books as much as I could when I was younger. His name is Edgar Casey and he believed that diseases started internally and he taught me the importance of having a clean colon. You know our large intestine. So when I got into the business I realized that people who had an impacted colon were impacted all the time, all of the garbage that it was accumulating in their system would leech into their blood stream in their lymphatic system and it would come out through their pores.

So your body uses FOUR different organs to push garbage and waste out of. Your lungs for gasses waste,bladder for liquid waste, colon for solid waste, and thenpores. Their considered an Orpheus or a whole or an opening and every opening that your body has, you know your ear wax comes out, eye gook comes out, nose excess mucus comes out, pores release sweat and pimples! So it all depends number 1 where the break out is, what it means, but number 2 your general question about what happens when a somebodies broken up all over their face, they are really polluted inside.

Lets imagine that in your house you have a gigantic garbage can and all of your rooms in your house need to be emptied, you need to empty the garbage from each room into that big receptacle. The big receptacle is filled to the top but you keep trying to add garbage to it. So what happens? The Garbage spills all over and when it spills all over it leeches into your blood stream in your lymphatic fluid and thats when somebody breaks out. The way God made us, it was so ingenious because your skin doesnt lie it always teaches you what happens internally, so the bottom line is if youre breaking out all over, all the time or even with pimples popping up here and there occasionally always check the colon first. You need to increase your fiber, which would be in the form of fresh fruits and vegetables, bran type crackers that are almost like eating sawdust, short grain brown rice as opposed to white rice which can clog you.

Q: So you would suggest brown rice?

A: Short grain is the best, yes brown rice but short grain is the best. But fiber is really good for you and people should look up the best forms of fiber that resonates to their taste buds and their palette because fiber acts like the scrub brush, right? But you also need liquids and people dont realize how much water they need to drink. For every pound that you weigh you need to drink a half of ounce of water per pound. And when youre eating fiber and drinking the right amount of water throughout the day what happens is the fiber will expand in your gut and act like a brush and clean out your colon. There also some really good very gentle colon cleansing herbs and herbal concoctions. My favorite is super cleanse by Natures Secret and because of my problem, and by the way my colon was problematic from the time I was a little girl and thats what got me into the business because I was impacted. I could not go to the bathroom. And so as an adult when I started to read Edgar Caseys book and learn how to detox the colon very gently. I discovered these pills and I started out taking 3 every night with a glass of water right before bed and within a couple days when I would wake up in the morning I started really cleaning out my colon, it was great. I felt much better, much lighter, and I had more energy. My pores were smaller and my little pimples went away.

Once I was able to evacuate my colon the right way then I started taking probiotics. I really experimented and probiotics are the friendly bacteria that when theyre in your gut they help to keep breaking down your food so that your body could release it. The best one, after years of experimenting with the pill form, that worked for me the best was liquid acidophilus and the brand that I like the most is called LifeTime, and the flavor I personally like the most is blueberry. And I like the one thats actually made from dairy but if somebody is lactose intolerant of course they also make it where dairy is not the source of it. Once that friendly bacteria, that mantle is corrected within your body and your colon, your gut, and then your body will be more regulated and your other organs like your liver, gallbladder, pancreas, stomach, and all the other organs can then dump their waste into the blood stream and the blood stream can deposit it into the colon, thats whats happening. As soon as somebody is broken out when I do facials on them those are the first questions I ask them. How regularly do you go to the bathroom? I even ask them how big is it? Because you have to go at least 18 inches twice a day.

Q: Really?

A: Yep, that is a goal people should aspire to because what stays behind in your colon solidifies and it turns into like a black tar and that black tar is very difficult to remove I kid you not, you should google it!

Q: If you could see my face right now, Im like disgusted (laughs). Thats really interesting to know, so when they come to you, you see their face and you can immediately kind of tell what it is that is wrong with them? Where its coming from?

A: Exactly, depending on where they break out, even the type of break out they have. If they have a very fatty breakout you know like, oily pimples, there are different types of pimples. Some are infectious, some are just trapped oils and fats. Like for instance, if people eat too much dairy, theyll get these white heads called Melia. That means that their bodies not able to break down dairy they should back off, they really dont want to back off they should switch from Cows milk cheese to Goats milk cheese and sheeps milk cheese because its much easier to break that protein chain down than it is cows milk cheese. Its very difficult for humans to break it down. So I always encourage that person who has melia to eat radishes because radishes help to get rid of that excess protein in the body from the dairy that they cannot absorb and eliminate through their colon so its coming out there pores. Does that make sense?

Q: It does. So speaking of breakouts, when I was younger my mom would actually tell me and my sister to put toothpaste on our pimples, is that something that you would suggest doing or how do you prevent breakouts?

A: Ok. Preventing breakouts comes from cleaning the colon, I dont know why youre mom told you that but I respect her but the thing is in todays day in age were using clay. We use sea clay, we use camphor plus clay, and we use camphor, zinc, and clay altogether because clay has the tendency to absorb and itll also increase the circulation. When the circulation is increased that means that blood is going to come to that area and the blood carries nutrients and takes away toxic waste. So when you treat a pimple externally with our sea clay mask or our pore minimizing mask, itll speed up the time frame for the pimple to heal. Itll heal much more rapidly, does that makes sense?

Q: It does make sense, so being that its colder with the winter climate right now, a lot of our skin is flaky, and our lips are cracking. How do we prevent that from happening?

A: How do you prevent that kind of dryness? I developed a system early on where its not just cleanser, toner, and moisturizer like other cosmetic companies did. Years ago I discovered the healing benefits of the sea and also from essential oils. Theyre very powerful and they go back thousands of years. Cleopatra used them, the Chinese used them, and ancient Chinese used them. They carry a power like acupuncture does when you use them on the body. They move energy through your body, they increase your circulation, they help kill bacteria, and they also nourish the skin. So my skincare products are set up in such a way where when youre going through winter, our clients do not have that problem because theyre cleansing without stripping their skin. We have a great cleansing system that doesnt strip the skin and then instead of going right to a moisturizer, we have this 3-step process in between where youre using essential oils to hydrate your skin, Marine Lotion which is like a serum which is very powerful, its based with Algae, and then you spray yourself with Seawater which helps these 3 things together deeply penetrate the skin. And then when youre wet from these 3 things you put your moisturizer on and you put it on all over your face, your neck, your dcollet, and you do it around your mouth as well and I guarantee you youll breeze through winter without a problem, you wont be peeling, you wont have that roughness because I grew up in Buffalo, NY and the winters were bitter, very, very bad. I was a vain tomboy, I was always outside playing with my 4 brothers and I was just like a boy, and so if they could do I it, I could do it. My skin would be so raw and I was always on a quest to heal it. How can I make this go away because it was so uncomfortable and my mom never knew what to do and because my job was doing the dishes all the time and I was always interacting with food I discovered the healing benefits when food touches your skin, what it does to you. So I would coat my face with olive oil.

Q: So when, well at least for millenials, when should we start getting facials?

A: Ok, thats a really good question. It all depends on what your skin is going through. So in my opinion you can start getting facials as a teenager.I think it just depends on what your skin looks like. How often you should get a facial? Typically women get facials every 4 weeks, with the economy being what it is, women stopped getting facials as often and now they stretch to every 6 to 7 weeks but that being said I just came up with a new kit. Its called 123 glow, and it is a do-it-yourself facial kit that you can use at home and the first. Its really cool and its very inexpensive, its $29.99 and its a way for you to care for yourself at home if you cant make it to the spa.

Q: Oh great, that was going to be next my question.

A: Yup, this is what you do. So this kit, it starts, you have to put it on a clean skin and then you take the 1st vile that you open up, its a peel, but its very gentle. It wont turn your skin pink yet alone red, it will not burn you at all its very gentle. Its made from lactic acid. So you put that all over your face, neck, all around your mouth, all around your nose, everywhere youre breaking out. Then you open up the 2ndvile, after a couple of minutes its the next step, which is organic hyaluronic acid and this acid will replenish the moisture that was in your tissue when you were a little girl and as we age the amount of hyaluronic acid naturally leaves the cells. So this replenishes that, you reserve one quarter of the vile for the afterwards, for the very end. Right on top of these two viles that are on your skin right now the 3rd step is a packet of this really rich mask, its full of vitamins, nutrients, minerals, you open that up and you put like two thirds of that all over your face and your neck and your dcollet and you rub it in a little bit just let it sit there and after a few minutes you refresh it with the rest of it thats in the packet where it start to get dry on your face and after about 10 minutes remove it with a warm damp wash cloth. Make sure its completely off your face and then you take the last little quarter bit of the hyaluronic acid and you top off your face and your neck and your dcollet and youre done. You can go in to your own moisturizer if you want or some people dont have to most people dont have to. Most people do this at night when theyre relaxed, they do it in the bathtub or they do it before a big date, important date. Young girls want to look really cool for their boyfriends and they want their make up to go on well. Did you ever notice that sometimes when you put your make up on it flakes around your nose?

Q: Oh Gosh! Yessss.

A: This would prevent that. So before any important event its a good thing to do or even if youre just a lovely busy mother and housewife and you want to look great when you pick your kids up from school or when your husband comes home from work. Its a way to really look refreshed and turn back the clock. Millennials dont have to worry about turning back the clock but they do have to worry about the makeup thats clinging to the side of their nose and this peel really takes it away.

Seven Ways to Combat Aging

Do you wish to have younger looking skin? There are some things you can’t control such as genetics or falling levels of estrogen leading to sagging skin. The is good news is there are many external influences that determine how your skin will age — the right anti-aging care can help slow down the aging process. Heres 7 Ways To Combat Aging by skin expert Susan Ciminielli.

women

1. Eat foods with a low glycemic index

Foods with a low glycemic index include fruits and vegetables, both above ground and below ground (organic), nuts, seeds, lean protein, legumes, onions, garlic, fresh and dried herbs. Food is medicine, preventive medicine, what we eat becomes a part of us on a cellular level. You should also be eating foods with high vibration energy and nutrients; this includes organic nuts, fruits, vegetables and fresh herbs.

2. Hydrate your body

Add fresh lemon juice to water a few times a day (about 2 teaspoons per 8 ounce glass). Drinking lemon water helps to keep the skin glowing, aids in digestion and can help you lose weight. Coconut water is also a great choice. Not only is coconut water the ultimate thirst quencher, but its also rich in antioxidants, helps to facilitate digestion, and reduces blood pressure. Make sure to rinse your mouth after drinking either of these concoctions to protect your teeth.
* If you have inflammation in your body due to your diet and lifestyle, adding 1 tablespoon of organic apple cider vinegar a few times per week can help alleviate symptoms.

3. Move your body

Yoga, walking, Pilates, and weight training all help build muscle and eliminate fat. Sedentary lifestyles lead to health problems due to lack of circulation in your system. Lack of physical activity can be a risk factor for high blood pressure, diabetes, depression, cardiovascular disease, obesity, osteoporosis, etc.

4. Use a great skin care line

Invest in a natural skincare line that has products filled with essential oils, vitamins and nutrients from land and sea. Each of these key components helps to nourish the skin. This is also how you get the glow from the outside, your skin will be luminous and your pores refined.

5. Sleep

Sleep is very important, eight hours is very beneficial. Deep breathing and long slow and steady breaths help relax your nervous system and ease you into sleep. The body repairs itself during sleep, however when sleep is interrupted the body is not able to do so. Lack of sleep has a negative effect on many of our day to day functions, including our concentration level and decision making process.

6. Meditation

Meditation is medicine for your body, mind and soul. The health benefits are staggering. It is a legal high unlike no other. Meditating can help to reduce stress, increases happiness, slows down aging, benefits cardiovascular and immune health, and more.

7. Have gratitude in your life

If you are truly grateful for everything in your life, the good, the bad, and the ugly, you can change your fate.
