  • 3 Pillowcases for Improving Beauty Sleep

    facial exercisesWhen we’re awake, we can do facial exercises and use skin care products to combat aging and look our best. Yet the work doesn’t stop there—beauty sleep helps our skin repair and rejuvenate. However, if we don’t sleep in the optimal position—on our backs—sleep can wreak havoc. This can appear in the form of deep creases and lines caused by the position you sleep in and the wrong type of pillowcases. Frizzy hair and breakage is another casualty of what should be beauty sleep. Since we spend almost a third of our lives sleeping, shouldn’t we make the most of this precious time?

    Until now, the majority of pillowcases were made of cotton. Since it is naturally absorbent, cotton actually draws moisture away from the skin. So all those expensive products actually get absorbed by the pillowcase while your skin just gets drier. The good news is, there is a bevy of pillowcases that target our beauty concerns and help you wake up looking fresh and dewier than before.

    1. Silk Pillowcases

    A longstanding favorite of the beauty community is the silk pillowcase. Unlike those made of cotton, silk pillowcases help your skin retain its moisture and prevent the sleep lines that result in permanent wrinkles over time. Silk is naturally cool, so you’ll perspire less, which helps those with oily skin avoid breakouts. It is also softer on your hair so there will be no friction to cause breakage or split ends.

    2. Satin Pillowcases

    The benefits of satin are very similar to those of silk. Unlike cotton, which pulls and doesn’t let your skin slide as you move in your sleep, satin allows it to move. Like silk, satin helps skin retain moisture and doesn’t absorb the products you apply before bed. Since satin is so smooth, it doesn’t cause hair breakage or split ends.

    3. Copper-Infused Pillowcases

    A new type of pillowcase on the market is Iluminage's copper-infused model. It’s made from polyester entwined with copper fibers that have been shown to boost the production of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. Studies show that you should see more radiant skin and a reduction in the appearance of wrinkles after four weeks of use.

  • 5 Aging Mistakes to Avoid

    facial exercisesWhen you do facial exercises religiously and follow a strict skin care regimen, you expect to look as good as possible. While this is what should happen, you could easily make mistakes that make you age faster than your years. If you’re not seeing the results you want, it’s probably time to re-evaluate your habits, the foods you eat and the position you sleep in. Read on to learn about some of the most common mistakes that age us and even add years to our faces.

    1. Excessive Sugar Consumption

    A sweet tooth doesn’t just affect your waistline, it can age your skin and cause breakouts. When you eat sweets, or simple carbs that convert to glucose in your system, the sugar molecules attach themselves to your skin’s collagen fibers. Known as glycation, this process causes the fibers to become inflexible and pull at the skin. This results in sagging skin, puffiness, enlarged pores, dark under eye circles, a loss of facial contours and diminished radiance. Skip dessert and simple carbs as much as possible to maintain a youthful glow.

    2. Forgetting to Remove Makeup

    No matter how tired you are, it’s critical to remove your makeup every single night. Sleeping with makeup on clogs your pores and causes breakouts, while cheating your skin of its nightly chance to repair itself. During REM sleep, your skin builds collagen and tries to repair damage; if you’ve got makeup on, it cannot do either.

    3. Over-exfoliating

    Exfoliation is key for shedding the dead skin cells that clog pores and give your skin a dull, dry appearance. It also stimulates the production of new cells. However, too much exfoliation causes inflammation, which accelerates aging. Ask your dermatologist or esthetician to recommend a gentle scrub that is ideal for your skin.

    4. Sleeping the Wrong Way

    The best position to sleep in is on your back, as it prevents those deep wrinkles and creases we get from smashing our face into a pillow. It also helps prevent sagging and wrinkles on your décolletage. The best anti-aging practice includes sleeping on a silk or copper-infused pillowcase to help keep hair and skin smooth.

    5. Cutting Out Fat

    Forget about those old school low-fat and non-fat diets; fat has made a serious comeback and never should have left. Omega 3 fatty acids are absolutely essential for fighting wrinkles and maintaining plump, supple skin. They also combat inflammation and free radical damage. Avocados, nuts and oily fish such as tuna, salmon and mackerel are excellent sources of omega 3 fatty acids.

  • 5 Sun Protection Tips

    facial exercisesSummer is around the corner. It evokes thoughts of vacations, bare feet and idling the days away sunbathing. Yet as relaxing as the latter sounds, it brings with it dangerous exposure to UV rays.  Too much of these dangerous rays causes signs of aging, sun damage and skin cancer. Since it’s unrealistic to avoid the great outdoors altogether, we’re providing some excellent tips to protect your skin during summertime. Add these tips to your regimen of daily facial exercises and you’ll keep your complexion in gorgeous condition for the most skin-baring season of all.

    1. Wear Sunscreen Religiously

    One of the most important things you can do for your skin is to wear sunscreen every single day, rain or shine. Apply it 20 to 30 minutes before you head outdoors and re-apply every few hours as needed. That’s right—bring it with you everywhere. Don’t just apply it to your face—apply it to your neck, decollete, hands, arms and everywhere you don’t want sun damage to appear. Try my Protective Sunblock SPF 30 for light, velvety protection.

    2. Drink Plenty of Water

    Drink water all day long, especially during hot summer days when you’re chance of getting dehydrated is higher. This helps you flush the toxins from your body and keep your skin hydrated from the inside out. When your body isn’t properly hydrated, it zaps the moisture from your skin and hair, making them look dull, dry and generally lackluster.

    3. Exfoliate

    Exfoliate regularly to eliminate the buildup of dead skin cells. If your skin is dry, aim for 1 to 2 times per week and 2 to 3 if your skin is oily. Doing a Face Lift to Go treatment every week is a great way to exfoliate and rejuvenate the skin. Retinol helps keep your skin exfoliated as well.

    4. Eat Right

    Increase your intake of antioxidant-rich foods this time of year, especially those containing vitamin C and E, which can help reverse sun damage. Load up on fruits and vegetables, since they will help keep you hydrated. In addition, consume lots of lycopene-rich foods such as tomatoes, watermelon, grapefruit, papaya, guavas and red pepper—the powerful carotenoid helps protect your skin against harmful UV rays. Click through for an amazing diet hack and recipe for Tomato and Watermelon Salad that is packed with lycopene.

    5. Spritz

    Keep your skin hydrated and freshen up your makeup regularly throughout the day with my Heavy Water Spritz. This will help bind moisture to the skin to keep it hydrated and give you a dewy glow.

  • 5 Foods for Beautiful, Younger Looking Skin

    facial exercisesOne of the best ways to enhance the results of facial exercises is with a diet rich in antioxidants and healthy fats. As we age, our collagen production decreases and the environment and free radicals take their toll. However, if you eat a healthy diet, you can boost production of collagen and combat the damage free radicals can inflict. Read on for a list of foods that will take your anti-aging regimen to the next level.

    1. Kiwi

    Kiwi is one of the most vitamin-C rich foods on the planet, which makes it essential to an anti-aging diet. Vitamin C is critical to the production of collagen, which provides our skin’s support structure and keeps it firm and supple. When oxygen makes contact with vitamin C, it can cause it to leak from the food it’s found in. With their furry skin, kiwi is able to lock in and store its vitamin C content better than other fruits. Kiwi also contains fiber, vitamin E and antioxidants that rejuvenate your skin.

    2. Seafood Containing Omega-S Fatty Acids

    Fish like salmon, tuna, mackerel and sardines are all excellent anti-aging foods. They have high levels of omega-3 fatty acids, which fills us up, boosts our moods and hydrates our skin from the inside out. They also impart a healthy, youthful glow and plump up our skin, which decreases the appearance of wrinkles. These types of fish are also excellent sources of selenium, which helps protect against sun damage, hyperpigmentation and even skin cancer.

    3. Walnuts

    Walnuts are one of the most potent weapons against aging. They are packed with omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants. Walnuts are an excellent source of copper, which promotes collagen production. They are also loaded with zinc, which aids cellular function and repair.

    4. Almonds

    Like walnuts, almonds are a great source of omega-3 fatty acids. They are also one of the best sources of vitamin E, which has potent antioxidant and wrinkle-fighting properties. Almonds also contain protein, which boosts collagen and elastin.

    5. Dark Chocolate

    It’s true--dark chocolate helps fight the signs of aging. It's loaded with antioxidant flavonoids, a group of phytochemicals with powerful anti-inflammatory properties. One of the flavonoids that dark chocolate contains is Quercetin, which plays an important role in the war against free radical damage.

  • Top 5 Benefits of High Density C Serum

    facial exercisesMany clients use High Density C Serum in conjunction with our system of facial exercises to keep wrinkles at bay. A topical vitamin C serum is an ideal way to keep skin looking bright and youthful while fighting damage caused by aging and the environment. Once you add it to your anti-aging arsenal, you will see enviable results within a matter of weeks.

    High Density C Serum delivers a highly concentrated form of vitamin C to your skin in the most effective, efficient way possible. Serums are more rapidly absorbed and penetrate more deeply than creams, which means faster, better results. Regular use will help you attain healthy, radiant, younger looking skin.

    Read on to learn the top five benefits of incorporating High Density C Serum into your regimen.

    1. Vitamin C Boosts Collagen Production

    Collagen is a naturally occurring protein that binds our cells together. It provides structure and is responsible for the elasticity and plumpness of our skin. As we age, its natural production slows down and results in fine lines and wrinkles. Using a topical vitamin C serum stimulates collagen production to combat wrinkles, impart radiance and improve texture.

    2. High Density C Serum Brightens the Skin

    Sun damage and aging can result in uneven skin tone, hyperpigmentation and sun spots. High Density C Serum acts as a natural, gentle bleaching agent that brightens and lightens these types of discolorations. It can even improve dark circles under the eyes.

    3. Vitamin C Protects Against Sun Damage

    Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant that can protect against UV damage by strengthening the skin barrier and thickening the dermis. While it helps reduce sun damage, it should be used in conjunction with sunscreen.

    4. High Density C Serum Combats Free Radicals

    Vitamin C’s antioxidant power protects against the aging effects of free radical damage.

    5. Vitamin C Promotes Healing

    Dermatologists often recommend the use of topical vitamin C to enhance cosmetic treatments and expedite healing. With its powerful anti-inflammatory properties, vitamin C can help heal wounds, scars and other conditions.

  • How Facercise Eliminates the Wattle

    facial exercisesSo many clients write me in search of facial exercises to eliminate their double chin, aka “the wattle.” It’s a telltale sign of age and one of the hardest things to get rid of. The wattle can also be caused by weight gain and once the extra weight is lost, the area can appear saggy or droopy. A double chin can be a major source of insecurity for those who suffer from this condition.

    The Risks

    Many people go under the knife or try liposuction to spot treat this area, and the results can be very disappointing. Some patients suffer dimpling, unevenness or only slight improvement after trying these surgical methods. Others try injections—up to 50 in the area per treatment—to attempt to diminish the appearance of a wattle. However, there is the risk of infection and it can take months and several treatments to see an improvement in the area. Then there is a list of nasty side effects that can occur, such as swelling in the entire region, hardening, numbness and difficulty breathing. Some even suffer from hives when receiving injections in the chin area.

    A Safe Solution

    The good news is, you don’t need to pour your savings into injectables, laser treatments and invasive surgery to get rid of a double chin. You can reduce its appearance in a matter of weeks with diligent practice of Facercise, our synergistic system of facial exercises. By doing these every day, you will experience significant lifting and tightening of the area. Within weeks, you’ll see marked improvement. After months, you may eliminate the double chin completely.

    While one of our facial exercises specifically targets the area, it’s essential to perform all of the exercises available on the Ultimate Facercise DVD. This is because the muscles of the face are synergistic, which means they all work together to accomplish the same movements and function. So while your goal may be to eliminate the wattle, your entire face will appear more lifted and toned. With consistent practice, you’ll experience dramatic, long-lasting results and look younger than ever.

  • 5 Products That Help You Avoid Fillers

    facial exercisesIf you haven’t tried facial exercises yet, you may be considering one of the many dermal fillers on the market. The problem with Botox, Juvederm, Restylane and other injectables is that they are risky, have side effects and produce unnatural looking results. Men and women who overdo the Botox are unable to make normal facial expressions and those who try to increase volume in their cheekbones can look very strange. Unlike facial exercises, which have no side effects, injections can be painful, cause bruising and may put a serious dent in your wallet.

    The good news is, by following a careful skin care regimen coupled with facial exercises, you can have smooth, wrinkle-free skin without getting injections. If you also follow a healthy diet, get adequate sleep and exercise, you can take skin care results to the next level.
    Here are five products that will help you avoid fillers.

    1. High Density C Serum

    Vitamin C stimulates the production of collagen, the skin’s key structural protein that is responsible for elasticity. It is also a potent antioxidant that reduces free radical damage. This serum will reduce wrinkles, improve skin texture and impart a healthy glow.

    2. Ultra Hyaluronic Cream

    Hyaluronic acid's ability to moisturize and plump skin is unrivaled—studies have shown it to increase skin moisture by 300 percent. This rich cream hydrates the skin and keeps it from looking parched, which reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

    3. Face Lift to Go

    This enzymatic mask lifts, tones, exfoliates dead skin cells and provides incredible cellular repair. Face Lift to Go makes your skin glow and is perfect for those special events that you want to look your best for. Use it weekly for best results.

    4. Retinol Skin Conditioner

    Retinol is the pure form of vitamin A, a powerful antioxidant that exfoliates dead skin cells to reveal fresher, younger looking skin. It helps everything from fine lines and wrinkles to enlarged pores, acne, uneven skin tone and hyperpigmentation. Our Retinol Skin Conditioner is gentle yet effective and can change the look of your skin in a matter of weeks, if not days.

    5. Protective Sunblock SPF 30

    Sunscreen needs to be worn daily, rain or shine, to protect your skin from the sun’s dangerous UV rays. Wearing it regularly will help prevent future sun damage.
