5 Ways to Eliminate Under-Eye Bags

facial exercisesIf eyes are the windows to our soul, the last thing we want are bags underneath them and puffiness surrounding them. The thin, delicate skin around the eye area is one of the first places to show the signs of aging. While puffiness is considered a temporary condition, it stretches the delicate tissues and leads to loose, sagging skin, aka “bags.” Under-eye bags can be difficult, if not impossible, to get rid of without surgery. The good news is, if you do your facial exercises regularly and follow the tips below, you can stave off puffiness and help your eyes look fresh and youthful.

1. Sleep Right

Get adequate sleep every night. Most people need between seven and nine hours but do what works for you. The most important thing is to try and keep to a routine. Elevate your head with two pillows while you sleep to promote proper drainage. This will also minimize fluid retention that causes the puffiness you see when you wake up. Use silk or satin pillowcases to avoid fabric pulling on your skin when you move during sleep.

2. Shower in the Morning

Morning showers help decrease morning puffiness. When shower water hits your face, its force stimulates fluids surrounding the eyes and moves them out of the area. The water’s heat also boosts the lymphatic vessels to help eliminate toxins. If you shower at night, you’ll miss out on these benefits.

3. Treat Allergies

Allergies are a major cause of puffiness and bags under the eyes. They irritate the delicate under-eye tissue, resulting in redness, puffiness and swelling. This also makes you rub and tug at the skin. See a doctor to get your allergies under control and follow the protocol they recommend religiously.

4. Open Your Eyes

The Eye Opener is one of the most popular facial exercises in the Facercise system. Daily practice boosts circulation and stimulates the lymphatic system. This eliminates fluids in the eye area and firms the skin, which helps prevent the sagging that leads to bags.

5. Freeze Your Face

A great way to reduce puffy eyes is to cover them with a cold compress, cold spoons or a bag of frozen peas. Anything cold constricts the blood vessels, which prevents fluid collection in the area.

5 Benefits of Vitamin C Serum 1024 683 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 topically with a vitamin C serum, it offers unparalleled anti-aging benefits. When we created our Vitamin C Complex serum, we chose the most effective and stable form of vitamin C, magnesium ascorbyl phosphate. 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 Vitamin C Complex 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 Serum 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. Topical application of vitamin C boosts collagen production to restore firmness, fight wrinkles and thicken skin.

3. Brighter Skin

Topical vitamin C brightens the complexion, revives dull skin and imparts radiance. It acts like a natural bleaching agent and can even improve those dreaded under eye circles. When used regularly, it results in a more even skin tone and youthful glow. TIP: Apply it all over your body, not just your 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, while treating redness and irritation.

5. Pores Look Better

Vitamin C Complex Serum improves skin texture and reduces the appearance of large pores, a condition caused when collagen breaks down. Since it thickens the skin and promotes collagen production, it also helps pores appear smaller and more refined.

5 Ways to Maximize Sunblock Protection 500 333 Facercise

5 Ways to Maximize Sunblock Protection

facial exercisesIt’s surprising how many people do facial exercises and use pricey skin care products but don’t wear sunscreen. The sun’s dangerous ultraviolet (UV) rays can cause damage that is often beyond repair. Too much sun exposure leads to premature aging, fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and skin cancer.

While the best way to avoid the aging effects of sun damage is to avoid exposure altogether, it’s not a realistic game plan. A powerful sunscreen, such as our Protective Sunblock SPF 30, must be your weapon of choice.

Read on for some tips to protect your skin from damaging UV rays.

1. Apply SPF Sunscreen Every Day

Whether you live in sunny southern California or rainy Seattle, daily sunscreen is a mandatory. Use a minimum of SPF 30 and wear it every single day, rain, snow or shine. If you are outside for extended periods of time (more than 75 minutes), generously re-apply your sunscreen several times.

2. Don’t Wait Until You’re Outside

It takes a least 20 minutes for your skin to properly absorb sunscreen and be completely protected. For best results, apply sunscreen a minimum of 20 minutes prior to exposure and before you get dressed. If you apply it with your clothes on, chances are you will miss critical areas.

3. Apply Generously

The old adage “less is more” does not apply when it comes to sunscreen. Since people are of all different sizes, there is no generic amount of sunscreen that works for everyone. The only rule that stands is that you can never apply too much. Use enough to provide even coverage all over your body—and then some. Our Protective Sunblock SPF 30 is lightweight and non-comedogenic so it won’t clog pores or cause breakouts no matter how much you use.

4. Don’t Count on Makeup

Many people make the mistake of using moisturizer or foundation with SPF in lieu of sunscreen. You can definitely use both for added protection, but never skip sunscreen altogether. These products must be used in conjunction with sunscreen to provide proper coverage.

5. Keep it Fresh

Sunscreens do expire, so don’t hoard old bottles. Their active ingredients lose strength over time, rendering them ineffective. Bottles can also get contaminated when kept for too long. Buy new bottles every season to make sure your sunscreen is working.

How to Rehydrate Your Skin 500 333 Facercise

How to Rehydrate Your Skin

facial exercisesHydration is everything! It plumps up our skin, makes it look dewy and promotes cell turnover. Summer weather can dehydrate skin like crazy, leaving it looking dull, flaky and dry. Throw in workouts, travel and outdoor activities and your skin can look older fast. This makes it more important than ever to keep skin hydrated and do you facial exercises daily.

Here are some ways to rehydrate your skin so you look fresh and dewy.

1. Avoid Hot Water

Shower and wash your face with lukewarm water. Hot water dehydrates skin and increases sensitivity.

2. Boost Water Consumption

Increase your water and tea intake to plump up the skin and promote rehydration.

3. Use Gentle Products

When skin is dehydrated, it may appear more oily than usual. This prompts many to use a harsher, drying cleanser. This is a no-no; you need to impart moisture, not strip the skin of its natural oils. Use gentle products and avoid those made with parabens and harsh chemicals.

4. Limit Exfoliation

If your skin is dehydrated, slow down on exfoliation and only use gentle products. Your skin cells take 25 days to turnover; dehydrated skin takes even longer. Over-exfoliation can cause significantly increased sensitivity, redness and breakouts.

5. Skip the Brush

You may love your facial exfoliation brush, but it can seriously exacerbate dry, dehydrated skin. Skip it during the dry summer months.

6. Hydrate with Hyaluronic Acid Serum

Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance that retains water and keeps tissue lubricated. This humectant works as an absolute moisture magnet for your skin. Our Ultra Hyaluronic Cream contains ingredients that have been shown to boost moisture by 300 percent! Work it into your routine to bring back hydration and a natural glow. For best results, apply it onto damp skin to help lock in moisture.

7. Limit Caffeine and Alcohol

Both caffeine and alcohol are diuretics that significantly dehydrate your skin and body. Alcohol also slows production of vasopressin, a hormone that is critical for rehydration. Limit intake as much as possible.

5 Benefits of Dry Brushing 500 333 Facercise

5 Benefits of Dry Brushing

dry brushingDry brushing is an age old body sculpting technique that’s enjoying a new wave of popularity thanks to celebrity endorsements and social media. It’s an excellent way to improve your appearance and overall well-being—and it only takes a few minutes per day.

Your skin is your largest organ and should be given the same amount of care that you give the rest of your body. By adding this simple practice is to your daily routine, you’ll enjoy everything from smooth, glowing skin to boosted energy. It also significantly enhances the results of our No Lipo Lipo body sculpting method. All you need is one of the natural Sisal louffas we import from Germany, available for purchase by clicking here.

Read on to discover five benefits of dry brushing that go more than just skin deep.

1. Dry Brushing Boosts Circulation

Dry brushing improves circulation and blood flow, which helps deliver more oxygen and nutrients to your skin cells. Improved blood flow leads to a healthy, youthful glow and promotes the elimination of metabolic waste.

2. Lymphatic Drainage

The lymphatic system is a major part of the immune system that eliminates cellular waste from the body. When it’s not functioning right, toxins can build up and cause inflammation. This can result in bloating, weight gain and illness. Dry brushing stimulates lymphatic drainage to boost the body’s detoxification process.

3. Exfoliation

Dry brushing sweeps away dead skin cells to reveal softer, smoother skin. Unlike some of the harsh exfoliating products on the market, this is one of the safest, most natural ways to exfoliate and unclog pores. With regular practice, you’ll experience less breakouts and your pores will appear more refined. The natural exfoliation also improves skin texture, prevents ingrown hairs and allows your skin to “breathe.”

4. Reduced Appearance of Cellulite

Many clients report that dry brushing helps reduce the appearance of cellulite. This is because it breaks down the fatty deposits in the connective tissue. Smooth skin looks firmer and tighter, making cellulite less apparent. When performed in conjunction with our No Lipo Lipo body sculpting technique, the results are stellar.

5. Increased Energy and Stress Relief

Our clients feel invigorated and report a boost in energy after dry brushing. This may be due to increased circulation or detoxification. Many also describe the practice as meditative—the simple act can reduce muscle tension, promote relaxation and relieve stress.

5 Summer Beauty Tips 500 333 Facercise

5 Summer Beauty Tips

facial exercisesSummer can bring on the beauty headaches, even if you use good skin care products and do facial exercises daily. Warm weather can melt your makeup, cause breakouts and dehydrate your skin. The sun’s harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays can cause sun damage such as hyperpigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles. Since summer is about enjoying beautiful weather and taking time off to relax, the last thing you want to do is worry about your looks. The good news is, we’ve got some summer-friendly beauty tips that will help you beat the heat and stay gorgeous while you’re doing it.

1. Go Non-Comedogenic

My skin care products are non-comedogenic, which means they are specifically formulated to avoid clogging your pores. Clogged pores lead to unsightly mishaps including breakouts, acne and irritation. Only use oil-free and non-comedogenic products this time of year so that your skin doesn’t have to battle perspiration and heavy cosmetics.

2. Lighten Up

Ditch your foundation and heavy makeup whenever possible during hot weather, especially during the day. Your skin will benefit from having the chance to breathe. A little bit of bronzer, concealer or tinted moisturizer can do the trick. If you work out, try to go completely makeup-free since your skin will already be burdened with perspiration.

3. Moisturize

While you can opt for a lighter moisturizer this time of year, don’t skip it altogether. The elements can take a toll on your skin and make it dry and unhappy. A light moisturizer can protect it from pollution, moisture loss and drying agents including the sun, chlorine and salt water.

4. Time Exfoliation Right

Timing is everything when it comes to exfoliation. Newly exfoliated skin is more sensitive to the sun, so exfoliate at night or on days you won’t be outside.

5. Don’t Overdo Bronzer

Many make the mistake of treating bronzer like foundation and apply it everywhere. For a natural look, apply it to the apples of the cheek and lightly swipe it over your forehead. Don’t forget to blend—you don’t want swipes of bronzer to detract from your polished look.
