  • Improve the function of your lungs
  • And improve the function of all your internal organs

And does this through the combination of exercise, deep breathing, self massage and your daily shower to relax, strengthen and tone your body.

We’ll get into that the specifics of the massage and the entire routine later in the article but for now, let’s focus on why you need to take care of your skin.

Your Skin Is One Of The Most Important Aspects To Your Health

Your skin is what protects your body from germs and bacteria. If your skin is weak, and it does weaken with age, it becomes easy for germs to get into your body. Strong skin is hard to penetrate.

Also, your skin helps eliminate and get rid of waste products and toxins through sweat. If you have poor functioning skin these poisons get trapped in your body and it can affect your energy levels and concentration.

Everything we eat and drink contain some level of poisons and must be eliminated from your body quickly. If not eliminated quickly, these poisons get into the bloodstream and get circulated through the body affecting your heart, nerves and any weak spots of the body.

This can be the source of many problems like:

  • Headaches
  • Rheumatic Pains
  • Insomnia
  • Depression

Other eliminating organs that help in the elimination of waste are your lungs, bowels and kidneys. My System will ensure perfect action of all these.

Having poor skin can lead to sweating problems too. Everyone knows one of the worst things is to get a clammy, sweaty handshake from someone. This happens when your skin isn’t working properly.

The sweat will seek channels of least resistance and with the most pores, like your hands, feet and armpits. The sweat over concentrates in these spots and it gives off a foul smell. I personally know someone who was so embarrassed of a sweating problem they dropped out of school and all their relationships suffered.

It sounds silly but imagine being drenched in sweat all day and always having sweat stains. You’d be afraid to lift your arms.

To fix this you just have to exercise the skin and improve how every part of it functions. If only my friend knew how easy it was to fix this problem.

Lastly, the condition of your skin is one of the biggest indicators of your health. On a societal level and individual level, we place a high emphasis and value on health; those with health have vitality and are the worlds producers.

Being perceived as unhealthy can cost you in some of the most important aspects of your life, like:

  • Your relationships
  •  Career
  • Happiness
  • Family life

Signs of unhealthy skin are poor complexion, pimples, saggy and wrinkling skin. Along with sweating and dryness, these are all things that show poor skin health.

Why Lotions Aren’t The Answer

Besides the obvious reason for the cost of lotions and creams, they are, for the most part, completely indifferent to your skin’s health. In some cases they can hurt you.

What they do is give the illusion of health. They temporarily fill in the lines of dry skin and make your complexion look better superficially.

What do you think happens when you wipe off these lotions?

Your skin returns back to its normal condition. Nothing was fixed, only hid. It’s all just smoke and mirrors.

Why spend all that money on something that doesn’t actually help? Some products cost over a hundred dollars and won’t last that long. Over the course of a lifetime you can easily spend tens of thousands of dollars on them.

The secret to healthy skin, especially skin of anyone over 40, is to exercise it and keep it clean.

The only way to exercise your skin and the thousand of little muscles connected to the vessel of the skin is through friction. Without exercise these little muscles lose their elasticity and drooping, sagging and wrinkling occurs. So the two keys to perfect skin, at any age, is:

  1. Friction
  2. And cleanliness

This isn’t a new concept either. The Ancient Greeks and every advanced civilization knew this to be true. And well informed people today know this.

How To Get Friction And Cleanliness

You get your cleanliness through daily showers with clean water and good soap. For anyone in a developed country, this is easy.

skin brush

Skin Brush

There are a couple ways to get friction. One good way is with a skin brush. They are relatively cheap and usually come with directions so you can optimally do it.

An even better way, that requires nothing more than your own hands, is with the self massage in My System.

This skin rub creates the friction you are looking for in a pleasant and amazing way. Every part of your skin is systematically polished in a specific, scientific way. Following the pattern set out, will improve your skin function, making it look and work perfectly.

Also, it is set up in a way to improve the function of all your internal organs too. These organs include you liver, kidneys and digestive system; all of these play an extremely important role in keeping you healthy and each are connected to your skin’s health in one way or another.

The massage is combined with exercise too, so you will be developing your core muscles at the same time.

Doing this seven minutes massage will:

  • Keep your skin firm for life and protect against wrinkling
  • Remove and prevent all pimples, blemishes, acne or spots.
  • Protect against liver, kidney and digestive problems.

This will keep you away from the doctor and save you a lot of money.

How it all works

You will find a lot of information on My System through out this website, so it isn’t necessary to write in detail about it. I’ll stick to briefly describing it and listing the benefits of each aspect. Click the blue links in the following paragraphs to learn more about each step.

Before we get it into it, it’s important to know it took 50 years to develop and perfect this routine. It was created by one of the most influential health experts and decorated Danish athlete, JP Muller.

I mentioned before this system is made up of exercise, deep breathing, self massage and your daily shower.

In all, there are 19 body weight movements. Using your own body to exercise is much more beneficial than using weights or machines. This is true because:

  • You become more in tune with your body
  • Improve functionality of muscles for everyday life
  • Increase flexibility, coordination, balance and dexterity
  • Prevent bad back, bad knees and any joint problems for life

The first nine movements of My System are just regular exercise movements without the massage. These exercises include some of the best core strengthening moves like push ups, sit ups, leg raises, squats and others.

These are moves that professional athletes and military people do to keep in shape. They develop your muscles greatly and improve mobility. Also, they keep your organs in good shape.

In between each exercise you perform two special standing deep breaths. This and the massage is what really makes this routine so special, important and beneficial.

There are dangers involved with deep breathing exercises and this is a problem I have a first hand experience with. The problem is you can’t perform breathing exercises with any amount of strain or you can hurt your nerves, lungs and heart.

To avoid strain you must learn relaxation techniques and that can take months of serious practice.

The deep breathing in My System avoids the need for these relaxation techniques because it is done in between or after exercise, when more air is needed. This makes the breath strain-less, easy and comfortable.

Some people believe your breathing is the single most important aspect to your overall health. The entire yoga movement is based around breathing. And believe it or not, only 1 out of every 50 people breath properly.

People who breath deeply, correctly and slowly:

  • Are more confident
  • Better mood
  • More vital
  • More energy
  • Free from anxiety, depression, worry, anger, and nervousness
  • Improved metabolism
  • Improved immune system

Your lungs are responsible for removing waste from your body too. There are so many incorrect and harmful breathing techniques unwisely given out on the web and this is a shame. It can turn people away from this extremely helpful exercise.

The breathing in My System is the RIGHT way to do it.

You will also learn how to breath correctly in each exercise. If you hold your breath when working out or when straining yourself, you can hurt your heart tremendously. Breathing and form are the two most important factors in exercise to prevent injury.

After the first nine exercises with deep breathing in between, you take your daily shower. It’s recommended to take your shower cold and not hot. You will learn how to take a cold shower in complete comfort and will like the refreshing feeling of cold more than hot.

Also, cold water is better for your:

  • Skin
  • Hair
  • And nerves

than hot water.

After completely drying off, you perform the self massage portion of My System which makes up the last ten exercises.

The best part about performing My System, besides only taking 15 minutes, requiring no weight or equipment and all the health benefits? Is how it makes you feel.

It deeply relaxes, while at the same time energizing you; you will will have more energy after working out than you had before!

It’s the perfect routine to balance out the stress of daily life.

Just A Few More Words

By this point I hope you realize perfect skin relies on more than just focusing on your skin. Your body is a unit and connected. Every part of your body relies on the strength and proper function of another part.

This is another reason lotions, creams and skin products don’t work.

my systemThese techniques work  for anyone, at any point in their lives. It doesn’t matter if you are forty, fifty, sixty, seventy or eighty. People have gotten their skin to look better in their seventies than when they were in their thirties, using these same techniques.

8 Comments Skin Care Over 40: An Easy 7 Minute Routine

  1. Stanley

    I didn’t know by simply exercising, deep breathing and self massage helps. Till this day, I apply sun block lotion to prevent UV from harming my skin. There is no doubt that some lotions are harmful to our skin and I experienced it when I play golf previously and I got dark patches in certain parts of face. Learn the lesson – only use those sun block lotions that contain ZERO oil so that it won’t burn my skin. Thanks for sharing.

      Thanks for commenting Stanley

      The sun is actually really good for your skin and overall health. The problems is when you just go out there and burn up. It’s best to give your skin sunlight little by little and build up a tan to protect yourself

    Almost as soon as I landed on your page, I got a MailMunch popup which would normally make me leave instantly. I find them intrusive as they are in your face before you’ve even shaken hands with the site, so to speak. Better to have it appear after the visitor has scrolled to the bottom of the page, or on exit intent – but that is a personal hate of mine. In any case, you don’t need it as you have a lovely, subtle, sticky, call to action red banner which I can subscribe through on finding content I like.

    Some of the long posts, such as Why Become A Member? do not have any images which makes them word heavy. Perhaps add some thumbnails at least? Other pages are locked for members only which is also annoying. ‘List of Problems my system prevents, cures or helps’ – wow that’s a big claim! In the UK no-one – accredited practitioner or not – is allowed to make ‘cure’ claims – is this legal in your country (presumably the US)? And I got a shock when I clicked on the About Me page as I originally landed on the Skin Care Over 40 routine link (provided here at WA) and thought that lovely smiling face was you! The Skin care article is very long, not many images, and it doesn’t really give any useful information. All it is doing is trying to upsell memberhip to your system. That’s the only way to learn to breath right, perform self-massage. I’m sorry if I sound negative, but this site – and especially this post – come across as a massive plug to buy a membership for $47. If I were a real visitor I would not be pursuaded to link through and spend money to join.

    You recommend Burdock root for acne in your header, but on reading down you say it can also help with syphilis and gonorrhoea! You need to make it clear that these infections need proper medical treatment. Similarly, with Saw Palmetto products – these are powerful herbal medicines used to treat lower urinary tract symptoms in men, and – under the supervision of a medical herbalist – some hormone conditions in women. It should not be used to treat asthma in children. It’s also good practice to state that men with lower urinary tract symptoms should have symptoms checked medically (to rule out prostate cancer) before treating themselves at home with saw palmeto fruit extracts.

    I know you will think I’m just saying this because I’m a doctor, and somehow feel challenged, but I am a holistic medic and regularly recommend that people seek advice from a medical herbalist, aromatherapist, reflexologist etc It is important that the advice you give is good quality – perhaps you could get quotes from some accredited practitioners who would value the publicity for their own books (you could provide affiliate Amazon links)?

    Sorry if this seems like a rant, but health is so important and if your visitors start trying to self-treat for gonorrhoea, or give saw palmetto to children, they could run into big health problems.

    It would be good to make your header links into customised no-follow links, too, as I didn’t initially click on About Me, but on the first drop-down menu item and only realised there was an actual About Me page because it was mentioned in that.

    Feel free to ignore everything I’ve said, as I realise I have been very negative in my reviews. You probably will hate me, but I felt I had to be honest.

    1. Dylan

      The sources of all the information I provide come from HIGHLY respected authors and in many cases the most respected in their field. Every post I recommend giving a third of the dosage to children, which would make saw palmetto safe for them.

      if you want to give me feedback, do it through the feedback section or email me.

    Hi there my friend,

    Great website and in this post you have touched on an important aspect of life and health and the is the importance of skin health and breathing is to our overall health.

    In Qi Gong, specific breathing techniques are used and as is a special massage techniques for the skin and face. It just goes to show and prove that you are correct, this is nothing new, been known about of thousands of years.

  5. lilywong

    Hi Dylan, great looking skin is really important and we really do have to take good care of it, especially when age is catching up with us. A good skin routine is the way to go about it and it’s wonderful that you have suggested an easy 7 minute routine that we can implement everyday. I don’t enjoy using too many lotions and creams as sometime it feels heavy to the skin. Totally agree that the key to great skin is inside out. Thanks for sharing this. It’s an enlightening read!
