6 Ways Vitamin C Fights Aging 500 361 Facercise

6 Ways Vitamin C Fights Aging

facial exercisesI’ve touted the benefits of vitamin C to clients who do my facial exercises for years! It’s a natural weapon for maintaining healthy, youthful looking skin and a strong immune system. Also known as ascorbic acid, vitamin C is a potent antioxidant that helps the body form connective tissue and fight off disease. People of all ages should incorporate it into their skin care routines.

Read on to discover five ways vitamin C helps us combat the effects and signs of aging.

1. Re-Hydrates

No matter what time of year, vitamin C addresses dry, flaky and itchy skin. It quenches thirsty cells and helps them differentiate and mature normally.

2. Reduces Discoloration

Regular use of a vitamin C serum like my High-Density Serum helps you achieve a more uniform skin tone. It reverses the appearance of sun spots and hyperpigmentation, as well as redness.

3. Brightens Skin

Vitamin C brightens and revives dull skin and improves your complexion. Consistent use of a vitamin C serum promises a more youthful glow.

4. Fights Damage

Vitamin C helps stop sun and free radical damage in its tracks. The sun’s dangerous UV rays wreak serious havoc while free radicals scavenge the skin, causing the formation of dark spots and collagen breakdown. Always incorporate a vitamin C product in addition to sunscreen.

5. Boosts Collagen Production

Collagen is a protein that is responsible for skin’s elasticity. As we age, skin loses its suppleness and gets thinner. Consistent use of vitamin C products stimulates collagen production, which promotes elasticity and thickens the skin. This significantly reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles—and therefore diminishes demand for risky facial injections!

6. Combats Inflammation

Vitamin C has been shown to reduce inflammation, which benefits our skin and overall health. This also expedites the body and skin’s healing processes.

6 Weapons for Cellulite Reduction 561 394 Facercise

6 Weapons for Cellulite Reduction

cellulite reductionLet’s face it—we all dread the “cottage cheese” appearance that cellulite causes on our legs, bum, stomach and arms. The industry for eliminating these dimply areas of skin is growing exponentially. Consumers across the globe are spending millions for topical agents and risky surgical procedures that promise cellulite reduction.

The good news is, there are some easy ways to reduce the appearance of this unsightly condition. If you want to feel more confident in swimsuits, shorts and sleeveless tops, try the methods below for safe yet effective results.

1. Flush, Flush, Flush

Proper hydration will flush out the toxins that lodge inside the fat layers underneath the skin, forming those bumpy lumps that appear as cellulite. Drinking water also plumps the skin, which can smooth out the appearance of those lumps.

2. Avoid the Whites

A healthy diet can prevent the formation of more cellulite and help diminish its appearance significantly. This means eating lots of lean protein and fiber-rich foods, while avoiding those with too much refined sugars and sodium. Overall, try to avoid as many processed foods as possible and steer clear of those with more than 200 mg of sodium per serving.

3. Dry Brushing

We always push the dry brushing technique, but for good reason—it stimulates the lymphatic system, which helps flush the toxins out of our body. It also boost circulation, which delivers oxygen to the cells and can help banish ugly cellulite before it forms.

4. Retinol Cream

Applying a topical formula such as my best-selling Retinol Conditioning Cream helps to smooth out the skin and make lumps less visible.

5. No Lipo Lipo

There is no better cure for cellulite than No Lipo Lipo treatments. If you can’t get to our spa, then get the No Lipo Lipo DVD and do this revolutionary treatment in the comfort of your own home.

6. Supplements

Kelp has been shown to burn body fat and therefore decrease the appearance of cellulite. Gotu Kola Extract is a caffeine-free supplement that thickens skin and improves elasticity. Try both for best results.

Facial Detox—Beauty Face Mitt and Bamboo Glove 370 499 Facercise

Facial Detox—Beauty Face Mitt and Bamboo Glove

dry brushingThe Beauty Face Mitt and Bamboo Glove are face savers for sure! Dry brushing the face is a wonderful adjunct to the Facercise program of revolutionary facial exercises. If used regularly, dry brushing exfoliates, tones, tightens and actually lifts the skin of the face and neck. The exfoliation process initiates strong blood supply to the skin, sheds dead skin cells and allows the skin to breathe and function better.

Shedding old dead skin cells effectively accelerates the turnover process, making way for new fresh cells. This exfoliation unclogs the pores and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Regular practice will impart that youthful glow that makes you appear radiant. Exfoliating the skin also allows the skin to better absorb your skincare products.

Tips

If your skin is normal/dry, try using the Bamboo Glove in the morning and the Beauty Face Mitt in the evening—that’s what Carole does! You can also alternate by using the Bamboo Glove one day and using the Beauty Face Mitt the next. If your skin is oily, try using a combination of the two, three to four times a week.

Care

Keep your Mitt and Glove clean by washing them in face cleanser or Woolite and allow them to air dry. Always remember, once the Mitt or Glove becomes too soft always replace it to maintain its effectiveness!

The Method

Start by making a long “O” or oval with your mouth so that you do not stretch your skin. Then make 20 to 30 small, quick circular motions around your entire face, including the area above your mouth, under your eyes and even the area under your eyebrows. Apply enough pressure to feel as though you are massaging your face. Concentrate on one area at a time, then move onto the next area to keep track of your 20 to 30 circular motions.

No Lipo Lipo Dry Brushing Technique 633 1024 Facercise

No Lipo Lipo Dry Brushing Technique

body sculptingDry brushing is truly a remarkable body sculpting tool that should be included in everyone’s daily regimen. It’s absolutely step one in obtaining your dream body. When you dry brush using our sisal louffa mitt and strap, you remove the dead skin cells, stimulate circulation, boost detoxification, break down cellulite deposits and improve muscle tone. After a week of daily dry brushing, your skin will actually begin to glow and appear tighter, more toned and lifted!

Dry brushing is actually best performed first thing in the morning, before showering. Our sisal louffa mitt and strap are manufactured in Germany and created specifically for use with No Lipo Lipo. At first, they may seem a little rough on the skin, but this is a good thing! As your skin gradually begins to detox, the sensitivity will lessen. Once your skin gets used to the Sisal Mitt, you will be ready to move onto the new Horsehair Mitt which is much stronger and scratchy. It really works on tightening the connective tissue and skin.

The Method

Start by sitting on a stool or edge of your bathtub. You will dry brush each section of your body 30 times. If you want to accelerate your results, go for more strokes per area. With the sisal louffa mitt, begin by brushing the bottom of the foot from the toes to the heel, then the top of the foot from the toes to the ankle. Next brush the front and back of the leg from the ankle to the knee using quick back and forth strokes. Proceed to brush from the knee to the top of the front of your thigh and inner and outer thigh areas using quick back and forth strokes, making certain to cover the entire thigh area. Then repeat the same sequence on the opposite side of your body. Brush using upward strokes over the entire buttock and hip areas.

Brush up your waistline from hip bones to your natural waistline, covering the entire front of your body. Brush the palm of your hand from fingers to the wrist and repeat on the back of your hand. Brush upward from wrist to elbow, front and back. Now brush from elbow to shoulder, front and back. Brush under the bust from side to center of body in semi-circular strokes. Brush from the armpit across the top of the bust area to prevent or eliminate a flabby armpit. For the back of the body, you will use the louffa strap. While standing, place the strap at the back of your ankles. While holding the handles, shimmy the strap up the back of your body, working your way up to your neck as if drying yourself with a towel.

Care

To clean your mitts and strap ~ shake them outside. NEVER WASH. Always remember to replace mitts & strap once they become too soft.
