How to Boost Collagen 400 266 Facercise

How to Boost Collagen

If you want firm, glowing skin, collagen is key! It’s a fibrous protein that works together with elastin to provide structural support for the skin. These proteins are also responsible for firmness and elasticity. Unfortunately, as we age, collagen breaks down and its production slows. This is where facial exercises and a few other tricks can come in handy.

Boost collagen production with the following anti-aging tips:

Protect Your Skin

Free radicals and the sun’s dangerous UV rays scavenge and deplete collagen. This shows up as photodamage, such as fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and sun spots. It also causes sagginess and loss of elasticity. Prevent these unsightly issues by wearing sunblock every single day, rain or shine. Apply all over your face, hands, arms, neck and décolletage—even the tops of your ears, as they are extremely vulnerable. It’s good to eat foods rich in beta-carotene and lycopene, antioxidants that help protect the skin from the inside out. Tomatoes, squash, yams, watermelon, papaya, beets, grapefruit and bell peppers are all excellent sources.

Facercise Daily

Facial exercises boost circulation which helps deliver oxygen to the skin cells. This stimulates collagen production and gives you a rosy glow. A consistent Facercise practice also prevents atrophy and strengthens muscle memory. The result is firmer, smoother skin with more defined contours and a decreased appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Eat Right

It’s important to consume lean, complete protein that provides all nine of the essential amino acids. Foods that contain high levels of sulphur have also been shown to promote collagen production. Some good options are garlic, legumes and cabbage. Vitamin C is also essential for cellular regeneration and collagen production. Eat lots of citrus, berries and green leafy vegetables to get your vitamin C fill.

Apply Vitamin C Topically

A vitamin C serum works wonders for stimulating collagen and brightening skin. Our High Density C Serum protects against free radical and sun damage that breaks down collagen.

Avoid Smoking

Smoking restricts the blood flow, which leads to smoker’s face. This includes those lines around the lips and dry, leathery texture that makes you look 10 years older. Cut out smoking completely!

6 Ways to Reduce Inflammation That Causes Aging 500 310 Facercise

6 Ways to Reduce Inflammation That Causes Aging

Inflammation is a major culprit in the war against aging. It’s a stressor that negatively impacts the health of our bodies and skin. It accelerates aging and leaves us vulnerable to chronic illnesses and diseases that can shorten our life span. While inflammation plays a critical role in the body’s healing process, often times the inflammatory substances don’t back off when they’re done working. For skin, this can lead to enlarged pores, sagginess, puffy skin and an increased appearance in fine lines and wrinkles.

Follow these tips to reduce the inflammation that negatively impacts our skin.

1. Avoid Unhealthy Fats and Simple Carbs

Stay away from trans fats, hydrogenated oils and polyunsaturated vegetable oils, aka “unhealthy fats,” at all costs. Refined sugars and simple carbs cause blood sugar levels to spike and crash, which also triggers inflammation in the body and skin.

2. Combat Stress

Stress leads to the increased production of cortisol, a hormone that causes inflammation and leads to belly fat. Reduce stress by exercising, meditating and relaxing—find whatever works for you and practice it daily.

3. Reduce Exposure

Try to avoid the environmental stressors that produce inflammatory responses, such as UV rays, pollution, free radicals and secondhand smoke. These are some of the biggest culprits of premature and accelerated aging.

4. Eat Anti-inflammatory Foods

Load up on whole grains, lean protein and foods packed with antioxidants, such as fresh produce. When choosing fruits and vegetables, seek out the most colorful spectrum possible. Wild-caught fish and foods that contain monounsaturated “healthy’ fats are also excellent options. Some ideal choices include avocado, eggs, tomatoes, squash, pumpkin, berries, citrus, green tea, walnuts, pecans, almonds and dark leafy greens like kale, spinach and Brussels sprouts. Spices like cinnamon, turmeric and ginger are also touted for their anti-inflammatory effects.

5. Exercise

Regular workouts and general physical activity reduces inflammation and combats stress. Aim to get 45 minutes of exercise five times a week. Strive to incorporate cardiovascular, strength and flexibility training for maximum benefits.

6. Use Products That Fight Inflammation

Antioxidant-rich products like our High Density C Serum and Nourishing E Oil are necessary weapons for your fight against inflammation. They boast anti-inflammatory properties to help heal the skin and fend of free radical damage that causes premature aging.

5 Amazing Benefits of Retinol 500 749 Facercise

5 Amazing Benefits of Retinol

One of the most effective anti-aging products you can get without a prescription is our Retinol Skin Conditioner. It’s a gentle vitamin-A derivative that yields exceptional results without any of the redness or harsh drying effects that prescription versions cause. It improves skin for everyone from teenagers suffering from acne to adult women with visible signs of aging—and everyone in between. Regular use helps you look younger and more beautiful while improving skin health.

Below are five benefits of using retinol.

1. Exfoliation

Retinol exfoliates dead skin cells to reveal fresher looking skin and stimulates cell turnover. The result is glowing skin that absorbs your anti-aging skin care products more effectively. It also smooths and refines skin texture while unclogging pores and removing the debris inside them. This helps pores appear smaller in size.

2. Retinol Reduces Hyperpigmentation

Retinol brightens skin and diminishes hyperpigmentation and sun spots safely and effectively. It does this by helping shed darker, damaged cells to make room for healthier ones that light bounces off of more easily. Research shows that it may also block an enzyme necessary for melanin production. The result is brighter skin and a more even skin tone.

3. Collagen and Elastin Production

Collagen and elastin are proteins responsible for healing and maintaining skin’s firmness and elasticity. Retinol boosts their production, which helps reduce and prevent sagginess while plumping up wrinkles and fine lines.

4. Wrinkle Reduction

Regular use of Retinol Skin Conditioner visibly improves the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. It also mitigates free radical damage and the environmental stressor that break down collagen. With consistent use, retinol can even help repair sun damage.

5. It Fights Acne

By exfoliating, retinol unclogs pores, which decreases acne. It also reduces inflammation and eliminates the bacteria that leads to breakouts. Studies show that retinol can even improve and lighten the appearance of acne scars.

5 Tips for Younger Looking Hands 500 333 Facercise

5 Tips for Younger Looking Hands

If only we could target our hands with facial exercises! Our hands can be a dead giveaway of age, as they are one of the most vulnerable areas of our body. Many of us forget to address our hands, yet they are very susceptible to wrinkles, sun spots, volume loss and dry, cracked skin. They’re constantly exposed to the sun and other environmental stressors, not to mention the toll housework and gardening can take.

The delicate skin on our hands needs constant care and protection. Avoid crepey, wrinkled hands and sun spots with the following anti-aging tips.

1. Wear Sunblock Daily

Your hands need constant protection from the sun and free radical damage. Apply Protective Sunblock SPF 30 every day all year long. Apply 20 minutes before heading outside and re-apply throughout the day.

2. Give Your Hands the Same Attention You Give Your Face

Don’t be skimpy when it comes to your hands—use the same quality products you use on your face. Add an additional layer of sun protection by layering High Density Vitamin C Serum under your moisturizer and sunscreen. Vitamin C helps brighten hyperpigmentation and even out skin tone while boosting collagen. Another excellent strategy is to apply Retinol Skin Conditioner at night to fend off wrinkling and plump up the skin.

3. Wash Gently

Since we often wash our hands several times a day, it’s essential to use a gentle product. Try a hand wash that features vitamin E or shea butter as a main ingredient to help restore hydration. Products that don’t include a moisturizing element can be too harsh and drying.

4. Moisturize After Water Exposure

Apply a rich hydrating cream immediately after washing your hands. A thick cream is much more restorative and hydrating than a regular lotion.

5. Wear Gloves

Wear gloves when doing dishes, housework and gardening, as well as when you’re driving. Dangerous UV rays can scavenge the hands on your skin through your car window, causing unsightly sun spots and wrinkles. You can buy special sun protective gloves, such as those by Bloxsun or Solartex, that are meant to be put on and taken off very easily and have a slight grip for the steering wheel
