The Power of Dry Brushing 500 333 Facercise

The Power of Dry Brushing

dry brushingWhether your goal is detox, body sculpting or boosting your mood, dry brushing will help you reach it. It’s one of the best ways to look and feel better every day. It’s easy to do, only takes a few minutes per day and can be done in the privacy of your home. All you need is a Sisal Louffa Mitt and a Sisal Louffa strap and you are all set.

Energy

Dry brushing has a very energizing effect. Think of how good your cat feels after your brush him or her. They have more energy and act happier and more kitten-like. It’s the same for us—dry brushing has a meditative effect that ultimately improves your mood. After a few days of daily brushing, it feels like a massage.

Exfoliation

Dry brushing sweeps away those dead skin cells all over our body. The result is a more even skin tone and softer, smoother skin. Your skin glows and its texture improves after just a few days of regular practice. The shedding of dead skin also helps facilitate cellular renewal. An added bonus is that exfoliation allows your skin care products to absorb better.

Fat and Cellulite Reduction

Dry brushing helps break down and release the toxins trapped in connective tissue that lead to the formation of fat and cellulite. The process promotes smoother skin, which helps diminish the appearance of cellulite.

Muscle Toning

Dry brushing stimulates the nerve endings that causes the individual muscle fibers to activate. This helps tone muscles and mobilize fat.

Detoxification

Dry brushing stimulates the lymphatic system, which is responsible for eliminating the toxins from our cells. This process is critical for keeping our immune system working properly. The removal of these toxins can reduce the length of infection and stave off illness.

5 Dietary Tips for Beautiful Skin 500 333 Facercise

5 Dietary Tips for Beautiful Skin

facial exercisesWhile facial exercises and skin care products keep your skin looking good from the outside, what you put inside your body can have just as much impact. It’s essential to maintain a healthy diet by eating antioxidant-rich food and avoiding certain dietary triggers. Read on for tips for perfecting your diet so you can enhance your skin care regimen and look your very best.

1. Go Organic

Choose organic meat, poultry and produce to avoid the growth hormones, steroids, pesticides and antibiotics that most traditionally grown produce contains.

2. Eat as Much Organic Produce as Possible

Produce is a fundamental part of a healthy diet. Eat colorful fruit and vegetables, especially those that contain high levels of antioxidants. For the best balance, try to fit in as much of the color spectrum as possible. Choose more vegetables than fruit, as the latter has a higher sugar content.

3. Cut Back on Dairy

Much research shows a strong correlation between dairy products and skin issues such as acne and aging. This is due to the hormones that make their way into cows’ milk. These hormones cause inflammation, cellular breakdown and increase oil production. Cut back, and when you do partake, opt for organic, hormone-free products. Products such as coconut, almond, oat and cashew milk make excellent dairy alternatives.

4. Reduce Sodium Intake

Too much sodium in your diet causes water retention, making it harder for your lymphatic system to flush away toxins. Excess sodium exacerbates acne as well, as it irritates the pores and impedes the body’s natural removal of toxins.

5. Cut Down on Sugar

Excessive sugar intake leads to hormonal shifts and increased glycation. Glycation occurs when sugars affect fats and proteins abnormally, resulting in the production of harmful molecules called “advanced glycation end products.” These evil entities cause proteins like collagen and elastin to break down and grow stiff, weak and inelastic. The result is sagging skin with more wrinkles and less glow. Avoid this by reducing sugar intake as much as possible.

Follow these tips to enhance the results of your regimen of skin care products and facial exercises. It’s okay to treat yourself every now and then, just be sure to do so in moderation.

The Best Way to Wash Your Face 500 333 Facercise

The Best Way to Wash Your Face

facial exercisesYour daily skin care regimen can be just as important as facial exercises for fighting the signs of aging. The first step of your protocol should be washing your face. While it seems like an easy task, many people do it incorrectly. This can result in breakouts, an increase in the appearance of wrinkles and other unsightly damage.

The skin on your face is delicate and more sensitive than other areas of your body. The Stratum corneum, which is the outer layer of the dermis, is formed from dead skin cells connected by lipids, fatty compounds that help your skin retain moisture. You want to avoid damaging the lipids at all costs! Yet you don’t want dead cells to build up too much either or skin will appear dull and lackluster.

Avoid this by washing your face the right way! Start by taking off your makeup with a gentle remover using soft, easy strokes, especially around the delicate eye area. When you’re ready to apply cleanser, use warm to cool water—hot water can dissolve the lipids and strip skin of necessary oils. Apply your favorite cleanser using your fingertips and massage into your face using gentle, circular motions. Start at the bottom of your jaw and move upwards—think of defying gravity every time you cleanse. When you move downwards, you’re actually pulling the skin down, which promotes sagging. Strive to wash your face for a least 30 seconds of washing your face so the cleanser has time to work its magic.

If your skin feels irritated or there is visible redness, you are not being gentle enough. When you finish, gently pat your skin dry with a soft face towel. Then you are ready to follow the next step of your skin care protocol.

Why Face Lift to Go Rocks 675 450 Facercise

Why Face Lift to Go Rocks

Face Lift to GoWhether you need to get red carpet ready, prepare for your wedding, stun at a special event or just maintain your good looks, you can’t go wrong with Face Lift to Go. This mask is a favorite among my clients and one of our best sellers for good reason—it firms, lifts, detoxes and gives your skin that delicious youthful glow.

Exfoliation is Essential

Regular exfoliation is absolutely essential for a smooth, glowing complexion.  As we age, the natural process slows down, causing dead cells to accumulate and make skin look dull and uneven. In addition, exfoliated skin absorbs products better and looks smoother. Face Lift to Go is an all-in-one enzyme treatment mask that offers an effective exfoliation treatment that rivals the results of a chemical peel, without the redness, flakiness and downtime. It gently exfoliates and removes dead skin cells so you get the beautiful skin tone and color you’re striving for. Regular use also repairs cells, draws out toxins and firms the dermis.

Enzymes Make a Difference

Face Lift to Go’s effectiveness is primarily due to its enzyme content. Enzymes speed up the rate of chemical reactions safely and effectively but are not consumed during the reaction. The enzymes in this mask break down the keratin protein located in the upper dermis, where dead skin cells accumulate. The process is gentler than chemical peels, microdermabrasion and harsh scrubs, yet yields very similar results.

Use this game changing mask every 7 to 10 days for optimum results. This treatment is so safe it can be used the day of your special event, yet effective enough to really see and feel a marked difference. Take a break and pamper yourself with our to-die-for Face Lift to Go treatment.

5 Tips for Using Retinol 500 333 Facercise

5 Tips for Using Retinol

facial exercisesWinter is the perfect time of year to add retinol to your beauty routine. Retinol is a vitamin A-derivative with powerful anti-aging effects that can dramatically change the appearance and texture of your skin. Regular use results in a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, large pores, acne scars, hyperpigmentation and “sun spots.”

Our Retinol Skin Conditioner is one of our best-sellers! While our products are mild, some retinols can cause dryness and irritation. Read on to learn five tips for using retinol effectively without any of these issues.

1. Start With a Gentle Product

It’s important to slowly introduce retinol to your regimen. Avoid starting with a prescription retinoid, as these can be too harsh on skin. Using a non-prescription retinol like Retinol Skin Conditioner is the safest, most gentle way to achieve results without irritation.

2. Go Slow

When you add retinol to your skin care program, don’t use it every night from the get-go. Retinol is a biologically active ingredient that needs a slow introduction. Start by using it every other night during the first week. On the second week, use it two nights in a row and take the third night off. Repeat. If your skin is extra sensitive, you may want to start off using it twice a week and then stepping up to every other night the following week. Follow either of these programs for the first three to four weeks and then you can add retinol in to your routine five to seven nights per week, depending on how your skin reacts to it. If you do experience any irritation or redness, cut back.

3. Apply to Dry Skin

For best results, wait 20 to 30 minutes after washing your face before applying a retinol product.

4. Wear Sunscreen Daily

Retinols make your skin more photosensitive, so be sure to apply sunscreen every single day. Sunlight can also render them ineffective, so if you don’t protect your skin from the sun, you’ll waste all that good product!

5. Moisturize Wisely

Many people apply moisturizer on top of their retinol. If you plan to do this, make sure the retinol absorbs a minimum of 20 minutes. If you apply moisturizer immediately, it will dilute the retinol and reduce its effectiveness.
