5 Reasons to Quit Smoking

facial exercisesIt’s always shocking when we find out that one of our clients who does facial exercises religiously is a smoker. There is no better way to expedite the signs of aging than with tobacco smoke. From smoker’s lines around the mouth to a dull complexion, the effects of smoking are severely aging. Read on for motivation to quit this nasty, aging habit.

1. A Dull Complexion

Fresh glowing skin is dependent on the delivery of oxygen-rich blood to its cells. Tobacco smoke is loaded with nicotine and carbon monoxide which slows circulation. This diminishes the supply of oxygen to skin cells and result in a dull, grey tone. Smoking also increases the appearance of blood vessels while depleting important nutrients, like vitamin C, an antioxidant that brightens skin.

2. Under Eye Issues

Research shows that smokers experience diminished sleep quality while tobacco unleashes oxidative stress on the skin. This combination causes dark circles, puffy eyes and unsightly bags.

3. Yellow Teeth

Yellow teeth is a dead giveaway of a smoking habit. Nicotine stains teeth an unsightly yellow or brown, raises the risk of gum disease and can lead to tooth loss.

4. Smoker’s Lines

Smoking’s repetitive movements cause vertical lip lines, aka “Smoker’s Lines,” that are very difficult to get rid of.

5. Deep Wrinkles

Smoking slows circulation and constricts the blood vessels which cuts off skin’s oxygen supply. This dehydrates skin and breaks down collagen, leading to a deepening of fine lines and wrinkles and diminished elasticity.

6. General Havoc

Smoking cigarettes causes infections and skin disorders, slows down wound healing and causes premature aging. Spend the money you use to buy cigarettes to get take better care of your skin.

Quit smoking now! Keep yourself busy by doing Facercise every day instead of reaching for that pack of cigarettes. Click here to learn about our proprietary system of facial exercises that takes 10 years off your looks.

Over 40? Here’s What Dermatologists Recommend For Younger Looking Skin 1024 773 Facercise

Over 40? Here’s What Dermatologists Recommend For Younger Looking Skin

facial exercisesOnce we hit a certain age, there are some staple products to use and regimens to follow to maintain a beautiful appearance. Below is a list that some of the top dermatologists in the world recommend starting at age 40. We say it’s never too early to start fighting the signs of aging, so start them now, whatever your age!

Always Wear Sunscreen

Most dermatologists claim that if they were stuck on a desert island and could only have one product, it would be sunscreen! Since sun damage is the culprit behind everything from hyperpigmentation and melasma to wrinkles and freckles, sunscreen is essential, rain or shine. Apply one with an SPF of 30 or more, like our Protective Sunblock, and re-apply throughout the day.

Treat Your Neck and Decollete

One of the most neglected areas for women of all ages is the neck and decollete. This region can be a dead giveaway for lack of care. Give these areas the same attention you give your face, including moisturizer and sunscreen.

Incorporate Antioxidants

Dermatologists claim that antioxidants are a must-have once you hit 40. Incorporate them into your diet and product regimen to enjoy their wide-ranging benefits. The antioxidants found in both food and certain products help combat free radical damage, promote collagen production and reduce the signs of photoaging.

Use Retinol

Research shows that products that contain retinoids, like our Retinol Skin Conditioner, provide next level exfoliation while restoring volume and elasticity.

Exercise Both Face and Body

Exercise has been proven to slow down the signs of aging and boost overall health. It improves circulation, prompting delivery of oxygen-rich blood to skin cells. Exercise also releases endorphins, which promotes a better mood and reduces stress.

Facercise

Just like exercises boosts circulation, so does Facercise. Daily facial exercises boost collagen to maintain elasticity, stimulate the lymphatic system, define facial contours and boost cellular regeneration.

5 Things to Avoid If You Want to Look Younger

facial exercisesYou don’t have to get Botox and other fillers if you want to maintain fresh, youthful good looks. In fact, a good skin care protocol coupled with daily facial exercises will make you look younger and more natural than dermal fillers. It’s also important to avoid bad habits that break down collagen, slow circulation and cause the formation of wrinkles.

Here are five habits to eliminate immediately if you want to combat the signs of aging and maintain your looks.

1. Smoking

If you want to look older, keep smoking! The repetition of the movements involved with smoking causes deep lines around the lip area and all over the face. It slows the blood supply to our skin cells, depletes vitamin A and causes collagen to break down. The result is wrinkles, fine lines and dull, grey skin.

2. Sunbathing

The sun’s powerful ultraviolet rays cause significant damage in the form of sun spots, hyperpigmentation, deep lines and wrinkles. It also breaks down collagen, which is responsible for the flexibility and firmness of our skin. Stay out of the sun and protect your skin by wearing, hats, protective clothing and sunblock with a high SPF.

3. Squinting

Squinting causes Crow’s feet, undereye bags and those lovely brow furrows nicknamed the “elevens.” Wear sunglasses to protect the area and rock a hat whenever you step into the sun. If you need readers, wear them!

4. Sleeping on Your Stomach

Sleeping on your stomach smashes the skin on your face, neck and decollete into the pillow and sheets. The pressure causes creases that can become permanent over time. Sleep on your back to prevent this from happening.

5. Excessive Drinking

Too much alcohol dehydrates your skin, causes blood vessels to burst and leads to sleep deprivation. These effects accelerate the signs of aging and diminish overall beauty.
