5 Tips for Younger Looking Hands

facial exercisesIf only we could target our hands with facial exercises! Our hands can be a dead giveaway of age, as they are one of the most vulnerable areas of our body. Many of us forget to address our hands, yet they are very susceptible to wrinkles, sun spots, volume loss and dry, cracked skin. They’re constantly exposed to the sun and other environmental stressors, not to mention the toll housework and gardening can take.

The delicate skin on our hands needs constant care and protection. Avoid crepey, wrinkled hands and sun spots with the following anti-aging tips.

1. Wear Sunblock Daily

Your hands need constant protection from the sun and free radical damage. Apply Protective Sunblock SPF 30 every day all year long. Apply 20 minutes before heading outside and re-apply throughout the day.

2. Give Your Hands the Same Attention You Give Your Face

Don’t skimp when it comes to your hands—use the same quality products you use on your face. Add an additional layer of sun protection by layering Vitamin C Complex Serum under your moisturizer and sunscreen. Vitamin C helps brighten hyperpigmentation and even out skin tone while boosting collagen. Another excellent strategy is to apply Retinol Skin Conditioner at night to fend off wrinkling and plump up the skin.

3. Wash Gently

Since we often wash our hands several times a day, it’s essential to use a gentle product. Try a hand wash that features vitamin E or shea butter as a main ingredient to help restore hydration. Products that don’t include a moisturizing element can be too harsh and drying.

4. Moisturize After Water Exposure

Apply a rich hydrating cream immediately after washing your hands. A thick cream is much more restorative and hydrating than a regular lotion.

5. Wear Gloves

Wear gloves when doing dishes, housework and gardening, as well as when you’re driving. Dangerous UV rays can scavenge the hands on your skin through your car window, causing unsightly sun spots and wrinkles. There are also special sun protective gloves available, such as those by Bloxsun or Solartex, that are meant to be put on and taken off very easily and have a slight grip for the steering wheel

7 Ways to Rehydrate Your Skin 500 333 Facercise

7 Ways to Rehydrate Your Skin

facial exercisesHydration is everything! It plumps up our skin, makes it look dewy and promotes cell turnover. Both summer and winter 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. It’s absolutely essential 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.

6 Tips for Beautiful Winter Skin 730 439 Facercise

6 Tips for Beautiful Winter Skin

facial exercisesCold winter air dries out your skin—even when you practice good skin care and do facial exercises. The harsher weather can irritate and cause red, itchy and parched skin. Here are some tips for restoring and maintaining moisture in the harshest winter elements.

1. Step Up Exfoliation

It’s more important than ever to shed the dead skin cells that clog your pores and dull your skin during wintertime. When there is a buildup of dead skin, moisture cannot penetrate. Find a gentle exfoliant to slough away the excess and promote cell turnover. Use our Retinol Skin Conditioner and Face Lift to Go on a regular basis for glowing, winter-resistant skin.

2. Lower the Temp

While it’s second nature to crank up the heat on cold days, it makes the air in your living space extremely dry. Find a cooler setting to help your skin retain moisture.

3. Don’t Skip Sunscreen

I always tell clients to wear sunscreen every single day, rain or shine. Even when it’s cloudy or snowing, the sun’s UV rays are out to get you (snow actually reflects the sun). Wear sunscreen like you’re heading to the beach on a hot summer day.

4. Quench That Thirst

Keep skin hydrated from the inside and out. Drink lots of water and replenish your skin with lotions and moisturizers. Pay special attention to your hands, which can dry out significantly this time of year. Apply lotion after washing hands and wear protective gloves to do housework, garden and wash dishes.

5. Go Lukewarm

While a hot shower sounds so good during cold weather, it strips essential oils from the skin, leaving it dry and parched. Use lukewarm water whenever you take showers and wash your hands.

6. Dry Brush

Dry brushing promotes exfoliation all over the body while stimulating circulation so that your skin glows.
