5 Ways to Make the Most of Your Sunscreen

facial exercisesIt’s surprising how many people do facial exercises and use pricey skin care products, yet don’t wear sunscreen. The sun’s dangerous ultraviolet UV rays can cause damage that is often beyond repair. Too much sun exposure leads to premature aging, fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and skin cancer.

While the best way to avoid the aging effects of sun damage is to avoid exposure altogether, it’s not a realistic game plan. A powerful sunscreen, such as our Protective Sunblock SPF 30, must be your weapon of choice.

Read on for some tips to protect your skin from damaging UV rays.

1. Apply SPF Sunscreen Every Day

Whether you live in sunny southern California or rainy Seattle, daily sunscreen is a mandatory. Use a minimum of SPF 30 and wear it every single day, rain, snow or shine. If you are outside for extended periods of time (more than 75 minutes), generously re-apply your sunscreen several times.

2. Don’t Wait Until You’re Outside

It takes a least 20 minutes for your skin to properly absorb sunscreen and be completely protected. For best results, apply sunscreen a minimum of 20 minutes prior to exposure and before you get dressed. If you apply it with your clothes on, chances are you will miss critical areas.

3. Apply Generously

The old adage “less is more” does not apply when it comes to sunscreen. Since people are of all different sizes, there is no generic amount of sunscreen that works for everyone. The only rule that stands is that you can never apply too much. Use enough to provide even coverage all over your body—and then some. Our Protective Sunblock SPF 30 is lightweight and non-comedogenic so it won’t clog pores or cause breakouts no matter how much you use.

4. Don’t Count on Makeup

Many people make the mistake of using moisturizer or foundation with SPF in lieu of sunscreen. You can definitely use both for added protection, but never skip sunscreen altogether. These products must be used in conjunction with sunscreen to provide proper coverage.

5. Keep it Fresh

Sunscreens do expire, so don’t horde old bottles. Their active ingredients lose strength over time, rendering them ineffective. Bottles can also get contaminated when kept for too long. Buy new bottles every season to make sure your sunscreen is working.

5 Dietary Tips for Great Skin 500 333 Facercise

5 Dietary Tips for Great Skin

facial exercisesWhile facial exercises and skin care products keep your skin looking good from the outside, what you put inside your body can have just as much impact. It’s essential to maintain a healthy diet by eating antioxidant-rich food and avoiding certain dietary triggers. Read on for tips for perfecting your diet so you can enhance your skin care regimen and look your very best.

1. Go Organic

Choose organic meat, poultry and produce to avoid the growth hormones, steroids, pesticides and antibiotics that most traditionally grown produce contains.

2. Eat as Much Organic Produce as Possible

Produce is a fundamental part of a healthy diet that benefits your skin. Seek out colorful fruit and vegetables, especially those that contain high levels of antioxidants. For the best balance, try to fit in as much of the color spectrum as possible. Opt to consume more vegetables than fruit, as the latter has a higher sugar content.

3. Cut Back on Dairy

Much research has shown a strong correlation between dairy products and skin issues such as acne and aging. This is due to the hormones that make their way into cows’ milk. These hormones cause inflammation, cellular breakdown and increases oil production. Cut back and when you do partake, make sure you opt for organic, hormone-free products. Products such as coconut, almond or cashew milk make excellent dairy alternatives.

4. Reduce Sodium Intake

Too much sodium in your diet causes water retention, making it harder for your lymphatic system to flush away toxins. Excess sodium exacerbates acne as well, as it irritates the pores and again impedes the body’s natural removal of toxins.

5. Cut Down on Sugar

Excessive sugar intake leads to hormonal shifts and increased glycation. Glycation occurs when sugars affect fats and proteins abnormally, resulting in the production of harmful molecules called “advanced glycation end products.” These evil entities cause proteins like collagen and elastin to break down and grow stiff, weak and inelastic. The result is sagging skin with more wrinkles and less glow. Avoid this by reducing sugar intake as much as possible.

Follow these tips to enhance the results of your regimen of skin care products and facial exercises. It’s okay to treat yourself every now and then, just be sure to do so in moderation.

Summer Produce That Makes Your Skin Glow

facial exercisesSummer is almost here and with it comes an array of produce that enhance results from facial exercises and more. Certain produce can protect your skin from sun damage, boost collagen production and give it a healthy glow.

This juicy fruit is approximately 90 percent water, making it intensely hydrating. It’s also rich in vitamin C, which boosts collagen production, as well as thiamin and vitamin B6. Watermelon also contains one of the highest levels of lycopene than any other food, which helps fight damage from those scavengers we call free radicals.

Berries

Fresh berries such as strawberries, raspberries, blueberries and raspberries are packed with antioxidants that combat free radical damage and the sun’s dangerous rays, as well as essential vitamins and minerals. They’re also rich in fiber, which helps fill us up and promotes healthy digestion.

Zucchini

At only 20 calories per eight ounce serving, this unique veggie is a nutritional powerhouse. It’s got a high water content and is rich in vitamins A and C, as well as manganese, a nutrient that is essential to producing choline, the amino acid that boosts collagen production.

Cantaloupe

This sweet melon is another excellent source of vitamins A and C, as well as E, K and the B vitamins, which help replenish and revitalize skin. It’s also packed with folic acid, which assists with skin cell regeneration.

Citrus Fruit

In general, citrus fruits provide lots of vitamin C as well as other important nutrients and antioxidants, so load up on lemons, limes, grapefruit and oranges.

Eat these great examples of beneficial summer produce and do your facial exercises daily to keep that youthful glow all summer long.
