6 Ways to Combat Hyperpigmentation

facial exercisesWhile the sun equals fun, the damage it does to our skin is no picnic. Its powerful UV rays cause everything from sunburns and wrinkles to melanoma and hyperpigmentation. The dark spots known as hyperpigmentation are very difficult to remove and can show up on every exposed body part. Their appearance can be intensified by skin irritation, pregnancy hormones, endocrine diseases, insulin resistance and various medications including chemotherapy drugs.

If avoiding the sun altogether isn’t an option, read on to learn how to combat hyperpigmentation and maintain the results of facial exercises.

1. Block the Sun

There’s a reason we mention sunblock in nearly every post—it’s so important to protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays. Wear sunblock every single day on each part of your body that’s exposed. Re-apply several times per day, especially if you’re engaging in outdoor activities. Wear SPF clothing, sunglasses and a hat for ultimate protection.

2. Keep Cool

Melanin activity increases when your body overheats, which can lead to dark spots forming. If you get overheated or exercise outside, immediately cool your skin down with a wet cloth or ice pack.

3. Lighten Up

Go on the offensive with a lightening product like our gentle yet effective Brightening Cream. If you’re considering using a hydroquinone product, be sure to speak to your dermatologist first. Sometimes hydroquinone can exacerbate sun spots and worsen their appearance.

4. Retinol

Retinol products exfoliate and eliminate dead, discolored skin cells that appear as sun spots. They also boost collagen production, which helps fight free radical scavengers.

5. Vitamin C Serum

Layer a vitamin C product like our High Density C Serum to brighten up skin and help protect against sun damage.

6. Eat for Protection

Consume a diet of antioxidant-rich foods that act as an internal sunscreen. Lycopene and beta-carotene are two antioxidants that provide powerful protection. Some great sources include grapefruit, tomatoes, watermelon, papaya, carrots, spinach, sweet potatoes and squash.

5 Reasons to Dry Brush 500 332 Facercise

5 Reasons to Dry Brush

body sculptingSummer is officially here and if you haven’t started getting swimsuit ready, there is no better time than now. Whether you’re dieting, exercising, doing our No Lipo Lipo body sculpting regimen or all of the above to get prepared, Dry Brushing is the perfect way to expedite results.  It’s is easy to implement into your routine and will only take a few minutes out of your day—why not do it right before or after your facial exercises?

For best results, dry brush before you take a shower in the morning using one of my superb Sisal Louffas from Germany. You’ll find that it feels good and actually helps relieve stress. Be sure to use upward motions when brushing the skin. For more information, there is a step-by-step demonstration available on our No Lipo Lipo DVD, which can also be streamed on Amazon.

Read on to learn about the many benefits of Dry Brushing.

Exfoliation

It helps gets rid of dead skin cells and unclogs pores, which promotes faster cell renewal and helps the skin appear smoother and brighter.

Circulation

With more blood circulating to your skin, it becomes firmer and develops a youthful glow. In addition, the appearance of cellulite diminishes.

Detoxification

Dry brushing stimulates the lymphatic system, which is responsible for eliminating cellular waste from your body. When your lymphatic system is not functioning properly, toxins can build up in your body and make you ill or gain weight. Dry brushing helps eliminate fluids and toxins from the body, which improves vascular blood circulation and lymphatic drainage.

Tightening & Toning

Next to exercise and No Lipo Lipo, consistent dry brushing is one of the most effective way to tone muscles and lift the skin.

Boosted Overall Health

Studies show that regular dry brushing promotes healthy digestion and improves kidney function. It also elevates your mood!

Summer Skincare Essentials 500 333 Facercise

Summer Skincare Essentials

facial exercisesNow that summer is here, you’ve got to up your skin care game and make protection a priority. You won’t maximize the benefits of facial exercises if you bask in the sun without sunblock and commit other summertime sins. Read on to learn about summer skin essentials that combat sun damage while imparting a youthful glow.

Sunblock

Sunblock is mandatory all year long, rain or shine. The sun’s ultraviolet rays and free radicals work together to wreak havoc on our skin. This damage shows up in the form of wrinkles, sun sports, hyperpigmentation and melanoma. The sun also breaks down collagen, which is essential for skin elasticity and firmness. Apply Protective Sunblock SPF 30 before you step foot outside. If you wear a tinted moisturizer with SPF, that alone won’t cut it. Apply sunscreen underneath it to maximize protection.

Lip Protection

Your lips are super delicate, making them extremely susceptible to sun damage. Be sure to wear a protective balm with SPF 15 or more every day. Re-apply it through the day. If you wear lipstick or gloss, apply balm first so it can act as a primer.

Spritz

Our skin gets parched this time of year, making skin dull and amplifying the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Carry a mist like our Heavy Water Spritz to replenish moisture throughout the day. It will refresh your makeup and give your skin a dewy appearance.

Brighten Up

A powerful potent vitamin C Serum like our High Density C Serum will brighten your skin while helping protect against sun and oxidative damage. Vitamin C also boosts collagen production! Try to eat produce rich with this antioxidant as well—some excellent sources are oranges, kiwis, mangoes, papaya, pineapple, berries and watermelon.

Wear Shades

Wear sunglasses with UV protection to protect your eyes and the delicate area surrounding them. Polarized lens do not protect your eyes from the sun, so be sure you purchase lenses with “UV protection” on the label.  Wearing sunglasses also prevents the squinting that causes fine lines and crow’s feet.

Incorporate these summer skincare essentials into your routine to ward off hyperpigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles and sagging. Click through to learn about the benefits of facial exercises.

6 Ways to Reduce Cellulite 500 313 Facercise

6 Ways to Reduce Cellulite

body sculptingCellulite is a stubborn condition that both men and women suffer from—and one that is difficult to improve. It gives the appearance of dimpled skin everywhere from the legs and glutes to the arms and stomach. Many seek surgical treatments out of desperation to try and remove cellulite, but the results are unpredictable and often mediocre.

We recommend non-surgical body sculpting remedies like the ones below to safely and effectively reduce the appearance of cellulite.

1. Flush Away the Toxins

It’s essential to drink lots of water to flush the toxins from your body that dwell under the skin’s fat layers and make skin appear bumpy. Proper hydration also plumps up the cells to make skin look smoother. For maximum benefits, squeeze lemon into your water and add green tea to your hydration plan.

2. Dry Brush

Dry brushing is an excellent technique for detoxifying skin. It stimulates circulation and breaks down fatty connective tissue to help skin glow and appear smoother. Regular dry brushing also helps prevent the formation of cellulite.

3. Apply Retinol

Retinol helps smooth dimpled areas and boosts collagen production. Apply a gentle topical retinoid like our Retinol Skin Conditioner nightly to diminish the appearance of cellulite.

4. Avoid Refined Carbs & Sugars

Refined carbs and sugars cause inflammation that makes fat cells grow and retain fluid. These fluids accumulate, slow down circulation and breakdown collagen and elastin, the proteins responsible for skin’s firmness and elasticity.

5. No Lipo Lipo

One of the best ways to eliminate unsightly cellulite is with No Lipo Lipo, a powerful, non-invasive body sculpting technique. It tones, firms and helps break down fatty tissue. Best of all, it can be performed in the comfort of your own home—you can now stream the No Lipo Lipo DVD on Amazon!

6. Infrared Saunas

Sweating in an infrared sauna detoxes pores and boosts circulation to facilitate delivery of oxygen to skin cells. This stimulates collagen production and improves skin tone and elasticity, which reduces the appearance of cellulite.
