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.

Top 4 Sources of Vitamin C 400 266 Facercise

Top 4 Sources of Vitamin C

vitamin C serumIf you’re seeking younger looking skin, vitamin C is a game changer. It’s a powerful antioxidant that can prevent and undo damage while brightening and firming the skin. It’s important to eat a vitamin C-rich diet and incorporate it into your skincare routine. When applied using a topical vitamin C serum, it combats sun damage in the form of age spots, hyperpigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles and elasticity. Our High Density C Serum is a free radical scavenger that makes skin look younger and healthier. When coupled with a daily regimen of facial exercises, you’ll take years off of your appearance.

To turn back the clock, consume foods packed with vitamin C and use High Density C Serum every day. Here are three excellent sources of vitamin C.

1. Fruit

Produce is loaded with vitamin C, with many fruits leading the pack. Oranges, papayas, watermelon, cantaloupe, grapefruit, pineapple, lemons, acerola cherries and strawberries deliver more than the daily recommended amount of 60 mg. Guavas top the chart with nearly 250 mg per fruit. Mangoes contain a whopping 122 mg per serving, along with high levels of zeaxanthin, an antioxidant that promotes healthy eyesight. Just two kiwis pack 128 mg and are rich in serotonin, a hormone that helps regulate sleep, mood and appetite.

2. Vegetables

Green leafy veggies are excellent sources of vitamin C. Brussels sprouts, spinach, kale, broccoli, collard greens and mustard greens are great options that pack a serious fiber punch. Bell peppers, tomatoes, cauliflower and kohlrabi all yield remarkable levels of vitamin C and other potent antioxidants. A surprisingly high source of vitamin C are chili peppers, which contain 216 mg per serving. These anti-inflammatory veggies rev your metabolism with their capsaicin content while adding spice to any dish.

3. Vitamin C Serum

A topical product like my powerful High Density C Serum brightens, firms and protects skin. It’s packed with antioxidants that fight free radicals while reversing damage from the sun and other environmental stressors. What sets this vitamin C serum apart is that it is composed with magnesium ascorbyl phosphate as opposed to ascorbic acid. This delivers this free radical scavenger to the skin gently and more effectively than other products. High Density C Serum fades sun spots and hyperpigmentation while imparting a healthy, youthful glow. Apply it everywhere that you want better skin—the face, hands, neck, décolletage, arms and legs.

4. Vitamin C Supplement

Adding a vitamin C supplement to your diet may boost your anti-aging efforts and immune system. Some opt for ester-c, which can be easier on the stomach.

You’ll see a marked difference in your skin after just a few weeks of using High Density C Serum and increasing vitamin C intake. Click here to learn more about this incredible vitamin C serum.

5 Benefits of Vitamin C Serum 400 266 Facercise

5 Benefits of Vitamin C Serum

vitamin C serumOne of the best anti-aging ingredients you can have in your anti-aging arsenal is vitamin C. It’s a potent antioxidant with a variety of benefits that set it apart from the rest. When used in a topical product, such as my powerful High Density C Serum, it offers unparalleled anti-aging benefits. When we created this serum, we chose the most effective and stable form of vitamin C, magnesium ascorbyl phosphate, which is delivered to your skin in the most effective way possible. It’s the ultimate free radical scavenger! Regular use of this A-list antioxidant, coupled with daily facial exercises, will change your skin and your life!

Here are five incredible anti-aging benefits of High Density C Serum.

1. It Protects the Skin

Vitamin C protects the skin against the environment and free radical damage like nothing else. It has been shown to neutralize and even reverse the appearance of damage caused by the sun’s dangerous UV rays, pollution and free radicals.

2. Vitamin C Boosts Collagen Production

Collagen is a structural protein that gives skin its plumpness and elasticity. When it breaks down, it results in fines lines, wrinkles, loss of suppleness and sagging skin. Skin also becomes thinner when collagen diminishes. High Density C Serum boosts collagen production to restore firmness, fight wrinkles and thicken skin.

3. Brighter Skin

Regular use of High Density C Serum brightens the complexion, revives dull skin and imparts radiance. It’s acts like a natural bleaching agent and can even improve those dreaded undereye circles. When used regularly, it results in a more even skin tone and youthful glow. TIP: Apply all over your body, not just the face!

4. Vitamin C Combats Hyperpigmentation

Vitamin C can lighten discoloration such as sun spots, hyperpigmentation and melasma. It also protects against future sun and free radical damage. Vitamin C serum also helps treat redness and irritation.

5. Pores Look Better

High Density C Serum improves skin texture and reduces the appearance of large pores, a condition caused by collagen breakdown. Since vitamin C serum thickens the skin and promotes collagen production, it helps pores appear smaller and more refined.

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.

How to Treat Age Spots 400 266 Facercise

How to Treat Age Spots

ages spotsMany of us suffer from what are called “age spots” or hyperpigmentation. These unsightly discolorations are caused by the sun’s powerful UV rays and other environmental triggers or can simply be a side effect of aging. Whatever the cause, the result can do a number on our confidence. The good news is, you can fade them and sometimes even eliminate them altogether.

While several procedures exist, such as chemical peels and laser therapy, they can be costly, require downtime and cause side effects. Just like facial exercises provide a natural, non-surgical way to combat other signs of aging, there are non-invasive methods for diminishing age spots. With a little bit of discipline, you can combat unflattering discoloration. Read on to discover our favorite techniques.

Lightening Creams and Lotions

Many products exist that lighten and fade age spots over time. Apply one religiously and you will see results. Our Brightening Cream is a customer favorite because it noticeably lightens and brightens the skin yet is extremely gentle. Many who try more aggressive products containing hydroquinone suffer severe irritation and experience a worsening of the condition.

Vitamin C

When vitamin C is consumed internally and applied externally, it yields significant lightening results. It’s a potent antioxidant that reduces the number of sun damaged cells and can even reverse age-related damage. Our High Density C Serum repairs UV damage while brightening the skin and imparting a youthful glow. Apply it all over the face, neck, décolletage, hands and wherever else you want to fade discoloration. Take an Ester-C supplement every day to boost the brightening process.

Retinol Skin Conditioner

Our Retinol Skin Conditioner is another powerful tool for combating age spots and hyperpigmentation. It gently exfoliates the skin, removing discolored cells that form sun spots while fighting free radical damage. It also promotes collagen and elastin production, which helps skin maintain elasticity and firmness.

Keep Cool

Whenever you’re overheated, melanin activity is stimulated, which leads to the formulation of spots. If you feel hot after exercising or spending time outdoors, immediately apply a cool cloth or ice pack to bring down the temperature of your skin.

Eat Right

Consume foods rich in vitamin C and antioxidants such as beta-carotene and lycopene. These help the skin fight sun damage from the inside out and reduce inflammation. Eat lots of colorful produce such as tomatoes, carrots, sweet potatoes, squash, watermelon, grapefruit and green leafy veggies such as kale, spinach and broccoli.

If you ever have a spot that changes in size or color, bleeds, itches or turns red, see a board-certified dermatologist for a skin exam. Some forms of skin cancer, including melanoma, are often mistaken for age spots.

Keep in mind—prevention is key! Click here to learn ways to prevent age spots from occurring.
