What Alcohol Does to Your Skin 400 266 Facercise

What Alcohol Does to Your Skin

facial exercisesWhen you dedicate so much time and effort doing facial exercises and following a proper skincare regimen, it only makes sense to follow a healthy lifestyle. It plays one of the most important parts in keeping skin looking young. An diet rich in antioxidants and lean protein, coupled with regular exercise, makes a huge difference in your skin and overall health.
Yet there is a common culprit that can deter all your hard work: alcohol. When it comes to alcohol consumption, moderation is key. If abstinence is not an option, then it’s important to develop guidelines for your intake. If you need some motivation for moderation, read on to learn how alcohol affects your skin.

Dehydration

Alcohol severely dehydrates your skin. Since the skin is primarily composed of water, dehydration causes it to lose that youthful plumpness we’re all striving for. It also makes fine lines and wrinkles appear more prominent and causes skin to look puffy. Worse yet—dehydration damage causes you to look older over time.

Inflammation

Alcohol causes inflammation, which results in a histamine reaction that results in redness, flushing and capillary damage. It also exacerbates rosacea.

Breakouts

Alcohol negatively affects our adrenal glands, causing adrenal fatigue. This is believed to cause hormonal breakouts. The inflammation that drinking alcohol causes also contributes to blemishes.

Nutrient Depletion

Drinking alcohol depletes important vitamins and antioxidants from your body, which blocks the delivery of oxygen to cells. It also significantly diminishes vitamin A, which is essential for cell regeneration.

Aging

The inflammation caused by excessive alcohol consumption promotes harmful free radical activity that leads to the breakdown to collagen and elastin. This results in loss of firmness and elasticity and actually causes wrinkling.

How Stress Affects Your Skin 1024 835 Facercise

How Stress Affects Your Skin

facial exercisesWe all deal with stress in our lives—and no matter what our age, it can wreak serious havoc on our skin. Stress can affect our immediate appearance or manifest over time—if not both—so it’s important to develop ways of coping with it so that you can ultimately look and feel your very best.

Breakouts

One of the most obvious ways stress manifests itself in your skin is with acne and breakouts. It’s common to experience a flare-up during a stressful period as your immune system experiences dysregulation, which makes the skin more susceptible to bacteria and germs and triggers inflammatory reactions. If this is what you experience, employ benzoyl peroxide for some extra help.

Rosacea

Stress also triggers rosacea, since those with this condition have highly sensitive skin and a compromised barrier to the elements. Try my Skin Brightening Cream to combat the redness and soothe inflammation. For those who suffer from eczema, stress can definitely induce a reaction—take a calming bath and apply something pure like 100% coconut oil afterwards. If you suffer from neurodermatitis, stress can exacerbate the itching and scaly patches caused by this condition. Do not scratch the area and see if your physician can prescribe a medication to help soothe the itchiness.

Reduced Blood Flow

Stress also reduces blood flow. This causes the blood vessels to narrow and elevate our blood pressure and heart rate, which further decreases blood flow. This increases the signs of aging both immediately and over time, causing our skin to look pale and darkened in some areas, and making our eyes appear sunken. Combat this with a daily dose of my anti-aging facial exercises, which will boost circulation and blood flow, while promoting a healthy glow.

Get Stress in Check

Find ways to get your stress in check and incorporate them into your daily regimen. Regular exercise is a great way to boost your overall health and reduce the effects of stress. Facial exercises boost circulation, help detox the skin and make you feel relaxed. Meditation is another superb way to relax and decrease the stressors in your life. Social interaction, reading, relaxing with pets and engaging in your favorite hobbies are other excellent de-stressors.

4 Tips for Reducing Puffy Eyes 736 414 Facercise

4 Tips for Reducing Puffy Eyes

FacerciseOne of the worst yet most common beauty problems is waking up to puffy eyes. Whether they’re due to aging, sinuses, hormonal changes, crying or lack of sleep, puffy inflamed eyes are unsightly and uncomfortable. They make you look tired, sick or like you have a hangover. The good news is, you can employ some easy home remedies to eliminate swelling and puffiness around the windows to your soul.

Here are 4 killer ways to eliminate puffiness around your eyes.

1. Hydrate

One of the simplest ways to combat puffiness is by drinking water. When your body is properly hydrated, you are less likely to retain water in any part of your body, including the area around your eyes. Water flushes the toxins out of your body and hydrates from the inside out. White and green tea helps hydrate and decrease inflammation as well. You can also splash your face with cold water to reduce the swelling, as it will constrict the blood vessels. Take it a step further by applying ice. You can also soak cotton balls in salt water and apply to your eyelids for 10 to 15 minutes. For best results, make the salt water with Himalayan sea salt.

2. Do the Eye Opener

One of our most popular facial exercises is the Eye Opener. It will boost circulation and blood flow to the area, which can significantly help reduce puffiness. Do your entire set of Facercises for optimum results.

3. Cucumbers

The old school remedy of applying chilled cucumbers is an excellent route to take. Cucumbers boast enzymes and astringent properties that reduce inflammation and help tighten the area. Chill thick cucumber slices in the refrigerator for 15 to 20 minutes, apply them to your eyelids for about 10 minutes and you will see a difference.

4. Vitamin E Oil

Another natural remedy for diminishing puffy eyes is vitamin E oil. Gently massage our Nourishing E Oil into the delicate area around the eyes. Leave on overnight for best results. This hydrates, stimulates circulation and reduces inflammation.

5 Steps to Reduce Crepey Skin 633 1024 Facercise

5 Steps to Reduce Crepey Skin

body sculptingIf you are concerned with crepey and loose skin on your arms, there are several body sculpting tips that can improve the situation. It’s actually a very common problem associated with aging, caused by several factors. As we age, our skin retains less moisture and our bodies produce less elastin and collagen. Since these proteins give your skin the elasticity to stretch and contract, their breakdown results in sagging and wrinkling.

If you want to avoid crepey skin, incorporate the following into your antiaging skincare regimen. You will see a difference in about 10 days to two weeks—and it will be well worth it.

1. Incorporate More Silica and Vitamin C Into Your Diet

These two nutrients both promote healthy, elastic skin. Load up on fruits and veggies that are rich in vitamin C, such as oranges, grapefruit, kiwi, pineapple, papaya, cantaloupe, red pepper and berries. Good sources of silica include leeks, green beans, garbanzo beans, rhubarb, cucumber, mango, kelp, whole oats, buckwheat, brown rice, alfalfa and green leafy veggies such as spinach, asparagus, celery and kale. Strawberries, bananas, broccoli and Brussels sprouts are all excellent sources source of both vitamin C and silica.

2. Load Up on Sunscreen

Sunscreen is an essential part of your anti-aging skincare regimen. Cover your arms and hands with sunscreen every morning and anytime you go outside when the sun is out. Sun damage decreases skin’s elasticity, resulting in crepey skin and wrinkles. Try our Protective Sunblock SPF 30.

3. Apply Your Vitamins

Immediately after you shower in the morning, apply our Nourishing Vitamin E Oil all over arms. Wait a few minutes and let it soak in. Then apply High Density Vitamin C Serum. Once it’s absorbed, apply sunscreen. In the evening, apply Retinol Skin Conditioner all over your arms. Do this daily and you will see results!

4. Dry Brush

Dry brushing boosts circulation and helps skin shed the dead cells that give it a dull appearance. It also stimulates the lymphatic system, which flushes the toxins from your system. If you dry brush on a daily basis with one of our Sisal louffas, your skin will appear more lifted, tightened and glowing.

5. No Lipo Lipo

No Lipo Lipo will help you get that summer body like nothing else. This system breaks down  fatty tissue and cellulite to trim inches all over your body. No Lipo Lipo uses strong upward sweeping motions to reverse gravity and firm skin while boosting the lymphatic system. The results are unparalleled when it comes to body sculpting.

Fight Aging With Exercise 400 263 Facercise

Fight Aging With Exercise

facial exercisesFacial exercises are a critical tool for fighting the signs of aging—but don’t stop at the face. Research performed at McMaster University in Canada shows that regular physical exercise yields an array of benefits that help us look and feel younger. It bolsters our health, fights off disease and helps firm and smooth skin.

While the studies began with mice, researchers moved on to human participants who experienced younger looking skin. One of the most important variables was that the subjects exercises regularly, proving that consistency is key to attaining noticeable results. This is also true for facial exercises—daily practice is what we recommend to our clients.

Aim to work out a minimum of 30 minutes per day. If you haven’t exercised in a while, start with three days a week and build up to four or five. For optimum results, exercise five to six days a week. You can start out slowly, but always strive to boost the intensity duration of your workouts. While consistency is key, it’s also important to keep challenging your muscles and endurance levels.

Incorporate a mix of cardiovascular, resistance and flexibility training into your routine. Choose exercise forms that you enjoy so that you can stay motivated for the long haul. Below are a few great forms to try.

Walking

Walking is one of the easiest, most enjoyable activities you can do. It’s gentle yet very effective—studies show that it improves heart health, boosts metabolism and promotes healthy digestion.

Strength Training

Strength training builds lean muscle mass, which is essential for good posture. It also improves skin tone and elasticity, which helps combat sagging.

Tai Chi

This beautiful Chinese martial arts blends meditation, deep breathing and gentle movement. It’s an excellent low-impact activity that is safe for all ages and reduces stress. Studies show that Tai Chi also lowers blood pressure, boosts the immune system and improves energy levels.

Dance

Dynamic workouts like dance burns lots of calories while the fun factor keeps you entertained. Whether you have a dance party at home or take a Zumba or ballet class, you’ll reap serious benefits.

Pilates

Pilates is a rehabilitative and strengthening movement that all ages can benefit from. It develops long, lean muscles while boosting flexibility and improving balance. Pilates also allows you to tap into the mind-body connection and decrease stress.
