5 Steps for Reducing Crepey Skin

body sculptingIf you have crepey, loose skin on your arms, there are several body sculpting tips that can improve the situation. Crepey skin is a very common problem associated with aging, and caused by several factors. As we age, our skin retains less moisture and our bodies produce less elastin and collagen. These proteins give your skin elasticity to stretch and contract, so when they break down, your skin sags and wrinkles.

If you want to avoid crepey skin, incorporate the following into your anti-aging skincare regimen. You’ll see a difference in about 10 days to two weeks—and it will be well worth it.

1. Silica and Vitamin C

These two nutrients promote healthy, elastic skin. Load up on fruits and veggies that are rich in vitamin C, like oranges, grapefruit, kiwi, pineapple, papaya, cantaloupe, red pepper and berries. Good sources of silica include leeks, green beans, garbanzo beans, rhubarb, cucumber, mango, kelp, whole oats, buckwheat, brown rice, alfalfa and green leafy veggies such as spinach, asparagus, celery and kale. Strawberries, bananas, broccoli and Brussels sprouts are all excellent sources source of both vitamin C and silica.

2. Load Up on Sunscreen

Sunscreen is an essential part of your anti-aging skincare regimen. Cover your arms and hands with sunscreen every morning and anytime you go outside when the sun is out. Sun damage decreases skin’s elasticity, resulting in crepey skin and wrinkles. Try our Protective Sunblock SPF 30.

3. Apply Your Vitamins

Apply our Nourishing Vitamin E Oil all over arms immediately after you shower in the morning. Wait a few minutes and let it soak in. Then apply Vitamin C Complex Serum. Once it’s absorbed, apply sunscreen. In the evening, apply Retinol Skin Conditioner all over your arms. Do this daily and you will see results!

4. Dry Brush

Dry brushing boosts circulation and helps shed dead cells that dulls your skin’s appearance. It also stimulates the lymphatic system, which flushes the toxins from your system. If you dry brush on a daily basis with one of our Sisal louffas, your skin will appear more lifted, tightened and glowing.

5. No Lipo Lipo

No Lipo Lipo will help you get that summer body like nothing else. This system breaks down fatty tissue and cellulite to trim inches all over your body. No Lipo Lipo uses strong upward sweeping motions to reverse gravity and firm skin while boosting the lymphatic system. The results are unparalleled when it comes to body sculpting.

5 Anti-Aging Vitamins 500 336 Facercise

5 Anti-Aging Vitamins

facial exercisesAn excellent way to enhance the results of facial exercises is with antioxidants and vitamins. Get them into your diet, your skin care routine and even take supplements if necessary. Many antioxidants and vitamins can help reduce the effects of the sun and free radicals while preventing future damage. Read on to learn about some of these important and beneficial nutrients.

1. Vitamin C

One of the most essential vitamins for skin and overall health is vitamin C. It boosts immunity, stimulates collagen production, protects against sun damage, brightens skin and decreases hyperpigmentation. Citrus fruits and vegetables are rich sources of vitamin C. Some excellent choices include oranges, lemons, limes, pineapples, pears, kiwi, strawberries, bell peppers, guava and broccoli. Aim for at least 100 mg per day.

2. Vitamin E

This popular vitamin is important because it acts as a barrier against dangerous enzymes and free radicals. Together with vitamin C, it can significantly fight damage from dangerous UV rays. Good sources include wheat germ, almonds, cashews, peanuts, avocados and sunflower seeds. Studies show that consumption of 400 mg per day reduces photodamage and the appearance of wrinkles.

3. Beta-Carotene

This is one of the most critical antioxidants for skin health. Beta-carotene converts into vitamin A in our systems, where it plays a major role in cellular repair and growth. It also helps protect the skin from both sun and free radical damage, while imparting a healthy, youthful glow. Some excellent sources include pumpkins, sweet potatoes, yams, winter squash, Swiss chard, carrots, broccoli, spinach, kale, tomatoes and cantaloupe.

4. Selenium

Studies have shown this mineral to help protect against various forms of cancer, including melanoma. Selenium is crucial for protein synthesis and promotes skin quality and elasticity. Like the other nutrients we listed, it protects against sun and free radical damage. Selenium also boosts the effectiveness of vitamin E. Good sources include seafood, eggs, Brazil nuts, garlic, whole grains, chia seeds and wheat germ.

5. Omega-3 Fatty Acids

These healthy fats reduce inflammation and bolster the skin cell membrane found in the epidermis. This helps protect the skin and enables it to hold onto moisture longer, which improves texture. Excellent sources include avocados, eggs, walnuts, salmon, tuna, sardines and mackerel.

5 Ways to Get Rid of Hyperpigmentation

facial exercisesSpring is around the corner—which means we may be spending more time in the great outdoors. It’s also the time of year when we do the most damage to our skin, resulting in everything from fine lines and wrinkles to sunspots and hyperpigmentation. When you spend so much time and effort on facial exercises and skin care, it doesn’t make sense to let those dangerous UV rays wreak havoc on your precious skin.

Read on for five ways to protect against and eliminate those unsightly signs of sun damage.

1. Sunscreen

This should be a given. Apply it to your face, hands, chest and neck—and any other areas where you don’t want sun spots to appear. Re-apply if you’re spending any extended amount of time outside.

2. Lightening Products

There is an array of products you can use to lighten and brighten sun spots and hyperpigmentation—my Brightening Cream is a best-seller because it’s effective yet gentle.

3. Retinol

Retinol effectively exfoliates the skin, which encourages cell turnover so that those dry, discolored skin cells that may appear as sun spots are replaced with fresh new ones. My Retinol Skin Conditioner also helps promote collagen and elastin production, thickens the dermis and helps combat free radical damage.

4. Cool Down

When your body is overheated, melanin activity increases. After being outside or exercising in the heat, make sure to cool down the skin immediately with an ice pack or cool cloth.

5. Supplement Your Diet

Eat foods rich in lycopene and beta-carotene, which both help you protect your skin from sun damage from the inside out. Some excellent choices are tomatoes, grapefruit, watermelon, papaya, carrots, spinach, sweet potatoes, broccoli and squash. It’s also good to take supplements such as ester-C and vitamin E to help prevent and reduce sun damage.
