4 Skin Care Blunders

facial exercisesWhile many people spend time and money trying to prevent aging, often times they don’t protect that investment. We regularly hear from clients who do their daily facial exercises, get facials, exercise, eat right and spend hundreds of dollars on skin care products–and then undo all that good work with bad habits.

Below is a list of some of the most common beauty blunders made by men and women across the globe that  result in skin damage and premature aging. Make sure to avoid them all!

1. Smoking

This is one of the biggest blunders made—and its effects are some of the worst. Smoking is extremely toxic and causes premature aging while weakening your skin and body’s ability to heal wounds. It creates those nasty wrinkles around lips, stains teeth, creates bags under the eyes and can lead to thinning hair. Quit smoking right now and you will see a big difference in a matter of weeks!

2. Inadequate Sleep

Sleep deprivation wreaks havoc on your skin—both short-term and long-term. Sleep is when your skin and entire body rejuvenates itself, so when you skip out on your zzz’s, your skin doesn’t have time to repair.

3. Skipping Sunscreen

Research shows that almost 90 percent of wrinkles are caused by UV damage. Skipping sunscreen is obviously not a smart move. Apply it to your face, neck and hands every time you walk out the door and reapply it throughout the day—and wear it all year long.

4. Avoiding Exercise

Working out is essential for both your overall health and the youthful appearance of your skin and body. Exercise stimulates blood flow and circulation, which flushes your skin with oxygen-rich blood and strengthens its ability to repair itself. In addition, you get that healthy, youthful glow that we’re all striving for.

If you Facercise every day and avoid these mistakes, you’ll have great looking skin.

5 Ways to Treat Age Spots 500 308 Facercise

5 Ways to Treat Age Spots

sun spotsMany of us suffer from what are called “age spots” and hyperpigmentation. This unsightly discoloration is caused by the sun’s powerful UV rays and other environmental stressors 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 procedures like chemical peels and laser therapy can help, 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. Read on to discover our favorite techniques.

Lightening Creams and Lotions

Many products lighten and fade age spots over time. Apply one religiously and you will most likely 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 Vitamin C Complex 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 maintain skin’s 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 your skin temperature.

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.

6 Tips For Treating a Sunburn 500 333 Facercise

6 Tips For Treating a Sunburn

facial exercisesNo matter how many times we’re reminded of the sun’s dangerous ultraviolet (UV) rays, some of us still get sunburned. Whether you forgot to apply sunscreen after your daily facial exercises or simply underestimated the weather, sunburns are no joke. Sunburns are painful and directly damage the DNA of skin cells, causing wrinkles, sun spots—or worse—skin cancer. The UV rays that cause sunburns also produce free radicals that further damage the appearance of our skin.

If you experience a sunburn, there are remedies that can help relieve the symptoms, expedite healing and minimize damage. Read on for some tips for treating sunburns.

1. Get Out of the Sun

The minute you feel a sunburn coming on, get out of the sun so you can minimize damage. If you already have a sunburn, stay away from the sun altogether until it’s completely healed.

2. Draw a Cool Bath

Take a cool bath with a few tablespoons of baking soda and/or Epsom salts to cool and soothe your sunburn. Soap can further dehydrate you skin, so avoid using it until your skin heals. While taking a cool shower sounds like a good idea, the continuous spray of water can irritate your skin further.

3. Apply a Chamomile Compress

Many people reach for ice though it’s too cold and may be irritating. Reach for a cool compress with chamomile tea instead to soothe burned skin and reduce inflammation.

4. Moisturize

Immediately after a bath, slather on a creamy lotion or our Nourishing E Oil to rehydrate parched skin. The rich antioxidant content of vitamin E helps fight sun damage.

5. Apply Aloe Vera

Slather pure aloe vera all over your body to soothe skin and expedite healing. Aloe has powerful anti-inflammatory properties and yields a cooling effect on burnt skin.

6. Pop an Advil

Over-the-counter ibuprofen can reduce inflammation and ease the symptoms of a sunburn.

Learn your lesson and do whatever you can to avoid scorching your precious skin in the future. Wear sunscreen every day, rain or shine, to avoid that blazing red look that causes so much damage.
