How to Drink More Water 500 294 Facercise

How to Drink More Water

facial exercisesAre you drinking enough water? If not, you run the risk of dehydration, which takes a toll on your body and your skin. When we don’t drink enough water, our organs suffer and can shut down. Since your skin is the largest organ in your body, just imagine the damage it incurs when it’s dehydrated. It becomes weaker, more sensitive and less effective as a protective barrier. Dehydration derails results from your facial exercises too—it causes skin irritation, redness, flakiness, cracking and premature aging. The plumpness, firmness and elasticity of skin diminishes and its texture becomes rough. Not a good look!

Dehydrated skin occurs when skin is composed of less than 10 percent or water. This makes drinking six to eight glasses of water per day especially vital during hot summer months. Drinking water can seem like a chore sometimes, so here are some tips to help make sure you hydrate adequately.

Wake Up & Hydrate

Make it a habit to drink a glass of water as soon as you wake up. Do this before having coffee, juice or anything else.

Carry a Water bottle

Have a water bottle with you at all times so you can sip on the go. Opt for one with measurements so you can keep track of your daily intake.

Spike Your Water

If water is too boring for you, add some flavor by steeping or infusing fresh fruit or veggies. Lemon water is an excellent choice because promotes healthy digestion, combats bloating and boosts detoxification. You can also add some excitement with berries, grapefruit, cucumber slices or mint. Take it to another level by doing combinations like watermelon-mint, cucumber-basil or strawberry-kiwi.

Infuse

Invest in an infusion bottle so you can take your flavored water on the go.

Make it Like Clockwork

Set your alarm to remind you to drink water several times throughout the day.

Make it a Ritual

Set aside a time each day for enjoying a glass of lemon or fruit-infused water. Enjoy it with an afternoon snack and make it like a healthy happy hour break.

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.

The Basics of Collagen 500 347 Facercise

The Basics of Collagen

facial exercisesCollagen is the most abundant protein found in the body and is essential to many aspects of our health. It provides structure for our skin cells and forms our connective tissue, such as cartilage and tendons. Collagen literally keeps our skin and bodies together! It’s a vital skin layer that provides elasticity, firmness and a cushion for the skin’s movements. It’s important to boost collagen with diet, skincare products and facial exercises.

Here are the basics of collagen so that you know what depletes it and how to promote its production.

The Slowdown

Collagen production starts slowing down anywhere from age 18 to mid-20s with visible signs showing up around age 30. Research shows that we lose up around one percent per year after that, with production dwindling even more after menopause.

Collagen Scavengers

The things that deplete collagen the most are aging, excess sugar, UV exposure, free radicals and pollutants like smoking. Drinking alcohol has also been shown to slow collagen production.

Protecting Collagen Reserves

Sunblock with a SPF 30 is critical for protecting skin from the sun’s dangerous UV rays.

Boosting Collagen Production

Vitamin C is essential for collagen synthesis. Use a topically applied vitamin C product like our Vitamin C Complex Serum and eat an antioxidant-rich diet that includes citrus and other good sources of vitamin C. Vitamin A and minerals including copper and iron also help promote collagen production.

Health Benefits

Collagen is present throughout our bodies and supports many functions. It boosts metabolism, helps heal a leaky gut, promotes lean muscle mass and improves skin, hair and nail health. Research shows that it also may increase energy, reduce joint pain and degeneration, bolster heart health by stimulating circulation and improve sleep quality.

Skin Benefits

Boosting collagen production reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, while increasing elasticity and firmness.

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.
