“I’m sorry, but I don’t believe you…”
I was standing in the middle of an expat cocktail party in London. I’d been talking with an absolutely gorgeous blond woman who I swore was in her late 30’s or early 40’s at best.
And she just told me she was 51.
“I’m not sure whether I should be offended at that…” she said with a mischievous grin. “I mean, I just met you and you’re calling me a liar…”
At this point, I had to sit down. If she looked at me like that again, I might faint.
I had no idea Swedish women
looked so great as they aged.
I mean, everyone knows the twenty year olds are gorgeous. “Swedish girls” is almost a cliche.
But this woman was living proof that “older” women were even more attractive. They didn’t just look beautiful on the outside. They had experience and confidence too.
Katarina saw my face change through several stages of shock. And she laughed as she set down her drink.
“There’s nothing unique about me,” she said. “Most of my friends are aging just as well.”
THIS Is The Secret to Great Skin…
“So what’s your secret?” I asked. “Why does your skin glow like that?”
I thought it was some highly advanced form of makeup. But it turns out she never used any.
“I eat a lot of fish,” she said. “At least two or three times a week.”
“Ja, cold water fatty fish. Salmon, sardines, herring, mackerel. I love the taste. And they’re loaded with good fats, so they’re great for my skin.”
She was right.
Fish are an excellent source of lean protein — which helps with weight loss and body composition.
They’re also packed with important nutrients, including selenium, magnesium, and vitamins B12, B6 and D.
But it’s more than that…
As my new friend Katarina said, those cold water fatty fish are full of Omega 3’s (fatty acids). And it turns out that’s a secret weapon in the Swedish beauty arsenal.
Smoother, Younger-Looking Skin — From The Inside…
The oils found in these fish can act as natural moisturizers, supplying hydration to your skin, warding off wrinkles and revitalizing your skin from the inside out. (1)
If you want smoother, younger-looking skin, this is a great place to start!
Omega 3’s also support a healthy skin inflammatory response, which means clearer skin, and a visible reduction in ugly conditions like acne and psoriasis. (2)
Omega 3 fatty acids have also been shown to inhibit skin inflammation caused by UV radiation. And, as you know, sun damage is one of the worst aging factors for your skin — especially your face! (3)
Strong, Shiny, TV Commercial Hair…
It’s no surprise that these Swedish beauties have great hair, too.
Omega 3 fatty acids also nourish your hair follicles for stronger, shinier hair. The sort of hair you see in those shampoo commercials on TV.
As if all this wasn’t enough, Omega 3’s bring other anti-aging benefits too, like balanced hormones, lower incidence of depression, reduced inflammation, and reduced blood pressure and cholesterol levels.
But Heed These Warning Signs!
So how do you know when you’re not getting enough healthy Omega 3’s?
Your skin looks dry and flat. You might also experience itchy skin, eczema, or ugly skin infections.
But you can do a lot to reverse that damage.
Just add cold water fatty fish to your diet 2 or 3 times a week, and watch your skin smooth out, firm up, and take on a new youthful glow!
There’s just one caveat…
I suggest that you avoid the larger types of fish like shark, swordfish or king mackerel. They tend to be high in mercury.
Choose fish that are lower down the food chain — and thus, lower in mercury — like sardines, anchovies, wild caught salmon, albacore tuna, black cod or herring.
Add these foods to your diet, starting this week. You’ll be amazed at how great you start to feel and look.
Steal These “Swedish Girl” Secrets
to Look Younger Than Your
When I first met her, I couldn’t believe Katarina was 50 years old.
In fact, I made her show me her passport to prove it.
But you know what I learned?
Swedish women aren’t just blessed with some incredible Hotness Gene or Anti-Aging DNA that the rest of the world’s women don’t have.
No, they look so great as they get older because they make the right lifestyle choices.
And if you want their all natural look — fresh, youthful, and energetic — then you should make those same choices too.
Eating cold water fatty fish 2 or 3 times a week is one of them. And you can start doing that right away.
But there are other Swedish beauty secrets, too.
And they will make you look younger than your chronological age even if you aren’t blonde or Scandinavian.
I got so interested in the science after talking to her that I spent a year researching this stuff.
And I figured out.
I’ll tell you exactly what simple steps Swedish women are taking to look so young — and how YOU can do it too (WITHOUT pills potions or procedures) — on the NEXT PAGE.
