How to Get Your Beauty Sleep 500 337 Facercise

How to Get Your Beauty Sleep

facial exercisesBeauty sleep is critical, but the position we sleep in is even more important. Sleeping in the wrong position can derail the results of your facial exercises and cause those deep creases many call “sleep lines.” I also causes back pain and saggy breasts.  Even if you use the softest pillow you can find, it puts pressure on your face and results in a pattern of lines that shows exactly how you sleep.

If you want to preserve your youthful good looks and overall health, it’s essential to sleep on your back. It prevents those nasty “sleep” lines from forming around your eyes, sides of your face and nasolabial folds.

Sleeping on your back also helps you maintain facial symmetry. As we age, our skeletal structure shrinks and we lose the fat in our faces. Look at a picture of yourself when you were in your 20s wearing large earrings and then another photo of yourself in your 40s with large earrings. You will notice that your face is smaller in the photo taken in your 40s. Sleeping on your back is can help keep your face symmetrical and protect the results you work so hard to attain with facial exercises.

Sleeping on your back is also the best way for your head, neck and spine to maintain a neutral position. This is essential for those who have suffered back injuries and helps prevent future problems.

Last but not least, sleeping on your back helps avoid those chest wrinkles that are so difficult to get rid of and helps you maintain perky breasts. Sleeping on your stomach or side causes those unsightly creases and puts weight on your breast tissue, which contributes to sagginess over time. When you sleep on your back, your breasts are fully supported, which actually helps prevent that dreaded sagginess.

If you’re having trouble falling asleep this way, put a pillow under your knees and hug another to your chest. It is psychologically the same as if you were sleeping in the fetal position on your side. You can also practice by lying in bed for 15 minutes or so, on your back to develop muscle memory in that position. Just like we do our facial exercises to train our muscles, we can train our bodies for healthier sleep.

 

6 Summer Skincare Tips 500 307 Facercise

6 Summer Skincare Tips

facial exercisesSummer weather is here, which means it’s time to boost your anti-aging defenses. Even when you do facial exercises daily, you still need to protect against sun damage if you want to maintain youthful good looks. You will most likely be outdoors more than usual, wearing less clothes and smack in the middle of some harmful elements like UV rays and free radicals. If you’re not careful, exposure to these stressors can cause premature aging, fine lines, wrinkles and hyperpigmentation.

Fortunately, you can take measures to prepare and protect your skin for hotter weather. Arm yourself with these six summer skincare tips and you’ll emerge from the season unscathed.

1. Pay Attention to Your Pout

Lip tissue is very delicate and susceptible to the sun’s powerful rays. Overexposure leads to chapping, burning and an increased appearance of fine lines. Always wear a lip balm with SPF 15 or more, re-apply it often and use glosses and lipstick with sun protection as well. Apply Nourishing E Oil to re-hydrate on a daily basis.

2. Layer Protection

Don’t just apply sunscreen and call it a day. Start with a potent vitamin C Serum like my High Density C Serum, which brightens skin, boosts collagen production and protects against sun damage. It has even been shown to repair damage from the sun and other environmental stressors. Layer sunscreen over it for the ultimate defense against dangerous UV rays. Re-apply sunscreen throughout the day.

3. Exfoliate

Summer weather and activities increase the debris from dead cells that clogs our pores and dulls our skin. Slough away these dead cells to reveal glowing skin and allow for better absorption of skincare products. Exfoliate both your face and body one to three times a week, depending on your skin type. Dry brush every day to accelerate the process and make your body appear more toned and lifted.

4. Stay Hydrated

Hotter temperatures can cause your skin and entire body to dehydrate. Load up on water every day to keep your internal and external hydration levels in balance. It will also boost the detoxification process.

5. Wear Sunglasses and a Wide-Brimmed Hat

Sunglasses reduce squinting and protect the delicate area around your eyes. A wide-brimmed hat will shade your face as much as possible.

6. Wear SPF Clothing

If you’re going to be outside for an extended period of time, wear SPF clothing for added protection. You can easily burn your skin even while wearing clothes, so don’t take the chance. If you can’t find any SPF attire that you like, use Rit-Guard, a colorless dye that adds sun guard to your clothes. It’s easy to use—you simply add it to your washing machine and do your laundry as usual.

How to Stay on Track Memorial Day Weekend 500 282 Facercise

How to Stay on Track Memorial Day Weekend

body sculptingThis weekend marks the unofficial start of summer! For many this means outdoor fun, barbecues and special events. No matter what this weekend means to you, there is no better time to get your summer body in gear and start rocking a healthy, youthful glow. If you practice moderation, do your facial exercises daily and follow the tips below, you’ll look your best this weekend and beyond.

Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate

Proper hydration is essential this weekend and throughout the summer. Drinking water and green tea helps flush the toxins from your system and fills you up. Thirst is often mistaken for hunger, so if you think you’re hungry but aren’t sure, try a glass of water. Hydration also keeps our cells plumped up! When our skin cells are dehydrated, collagen breaks down and dulls our skin. Drink lemon water for an extra detoxifying boost.

Work it Out

Even though it’s a holiday weekend, make time to exercise. You may consume more calories than usual, so it’s definitely not the time to slack off of your routine. Make time even when you’re on vacation! If you can’t hit the gym or an exercise class, go for a run around the neighborhood. It will boost serotonin levels and circulation, which imparts a healthy glow.

Sculpt It

It’s essential to stick to your dry brushing and No Lipo Lipo body sculpting regimens as well. If you haven’t started these programs, there is no better time than the present. You will see results in a matter of weeks. Do these routines even if you are out of town. You can easily stash one of our Sisal Louffas in your suitcase and all you need for No Lipo Lipo is some Nourishing E Oil.

Slather on the Sunscreen

You can never wear too much sunscreen! There’s a chance you’ll be outdoors more than normal, and even if you aren’t, damage can occur in just a few minutes of sun exposure. Apply it to your face and body a minimum of 20 minutes before you head outside and re-apply throughout the day.

Pamper Yourself

Your skin will be on display more than usual during the warmer months, so do an exfoliating mask like Face Lift to Go. You can do the Body Lifting Masque on your body to make skin appear firmer, more toned and lifted.

Stick to the Program

Don’t skip a beat when it comes to your daily facial exercises. If you’re on the road this weekend, you can stream the Ultimate Facercise on Amazon Video.

Be Moderate

Give yourself a cheat day, but not the entire weekend. Make sure not to arrive anywhere on an empty stomach, or you will be sure to overeat. Have a protein-packed snack before you head out and set some boundaries in advance. If you plan to imbibe, limit it to one or two whine spritzers or something similar. Drink a glass of water in between each alcoholic drink to maintain hydration and prevent a hangover.

5 Ways to Prevent Age Spots & Hyperpigmentation 400 320 Facercise

5 Ways to Prevent Age Spots & Hyperpigmentation

hyperpigmentationAge spots and hyperpigmentation can be hard to get rid of. These dark splotches appear in the most obvious places—our face, neck, hands, you name it! They’re a major sign of aging and sun damage and can grow worse with continued exposure to the sun and other elements. While treatments do exist to remove them, prevention is a much better route.

Here are five ways to prevent age spots and hyperpigmentation.

1. Avoid the Sun

One of the most obvious ways to prevent sun damage and discoloration is to stay out of the sun. Its powerful UV rays are at their most dangerous between 10 am and 4 pm, so make sure to avoid exposure during those hours. If you do head outdoors, wear a hat, sunglasses, long pants and sleeves with built-in SPF protection.

2. UV Protection

Wear sunscreen with SPF 30 or greater every single day, rain or shine. Use it on your face, hands and entire body. Apply it 20 minutes before you head outside so that your skin has time to absorb it. If you do plan to spend time outdoors, re-apply every hour or so. Our Protective Sunblock SPF 30 provides effective protection that melts into the skin.

3. Eat an Antioxidant-Rich Diet

Antioxidants help protect against damage from the sun and free radicals. Foods that contain lycopene and beta-carotene specifically act as an internal sunscreen, fighting damage from within. Excellent antioxidant sources include fresh, colorful fruits and green leafy vegetables.

4. Protect with Vitamin C

Research shows that vitamin C protects against sun damage and can even repair discoloration. Eat foods loaded with it and apply a topical product, such as my High Density C Serum.

5. Exfoliate Regularly

Exfoliating helps break apart pigmented cells so that they don’t grow darker. Use a gentle product and consult with a dermatologist or esthetician to determine how many times a week is necessary. Regular use of a retinol product like my Retinol Skin Conditioner is an excellent way to keep skin exfoliated and promote cell turnover.
