  • 5 Ways to Sculpt Your Summer Body

    body sculptingSummer is in full swing, which means there’s no better time to focus on body sculpting. While there are no overnight fixes, you can make a difference in a matter of weeks. If you follow some or all of the tips below on a consistent basis, you can build lean muscle, burn fat and appear sleeker and more toned. Your confidence will soar and you’ll feel summer ready. What are you waiting for?

    1. Lean Out

    Lean protein is key to sculpting your body and losing inches. It helps you build lean muscle mass, which makes you appear more toned and increases the number of calories burned every day. Load up on lean protein sources such as eggs, quinoa, chicken, turkey, beans, lentils, peas, salmon, tuna, mackerel and shrimp.

    2. Build Muscle

    Strength and resistance training are the best ways to build muscle. Many women are afraid to use weights and resistance because they think they will “bulk up.” Your goal is simply to use resistance and weights to tone and build lean muscle; doing some body weight and dumbbell exercises will not make you get too big. Try moves like lunges, squats, dead lifts, bench press and dumbbell curls and rows. For abs, try planks and hanging leg raises.

    3. Burn Fat

    Two of my favorite ways to burn fat are to drink green tea and do cardio. Green tea contains EGCG, a powerful antioxidant that has been shown to help burn fat. It also helps hydrate and flush the toxins from your system, which aids weight loss. Cardio exercise helps you burn fat and calories, while building a healthy heart and lungs. It also gives you energy, improves sleep, increases bone density and bolsters your mood.

    4. Dry Brush

    Dry brushing exfoliates and boosts lymphatic drainage, which flushes toxins and excess water from the body. This helps eliminate bloat and encourages healthy digestion. Dry brushing also boosts circulation, which promotes the elimination of metabolic waste. This can help prevent and reduce the appearance of cellulite.

    5. Do No Lipo Lipo

    No Lipo Lipo is a massage technique that you can perform on yourself in the comfort of your own home. It breaks down cellulite and fat in the connective tissue while reversing gravity and tightening the skin. Regular practice promotes weight loss and results in the appearance of a more sculpted, toned body. The No Lipo Lipo DVD shows you how to perform the technique on yourself so you can achieve your best body. Results are enhanced when performed in conjunction with dry brushing.

    hyaluronic acidThe 4th of July is here, which means we’re smack in the middle of summer. Whether you have outdoor BBQs on the horizon, a trip lined up or are staying home with your SO, we know you want to look your best. Even if the attire is casual or you’re spending the day outdoors, you’ll enjoy yourself more when your skin looks its luminous best.

    Read on for my roadmap for getting beautified for the 4th of July and all of your summer events.

    Get Moving

    Start the day off with some physical activity, ideally your regular workout. Do your facial exercises when you wake up and then go for a run, take a walk or hit the gym. This will get your blood flowing and skin glowing. It will also help offset any extra calories you consume at parties or BBQs.

    Get Glowing

    Once you’re done with your workout, take some to relax and get your glow on. Apply Face Lift to Go and relax for 45 minutes of pure unadulterated "me" time. This luxurious enzymatic mask exfoliates like nothing else—leaving your skin looking taut, firm and absolutely glowing.

    Get Dewy

    After you slough off the excess with Face Lift to Go, properly moisturize before applying Protective Sunblock SPF 30. A product that contains hyaluronic acid is ideal, as it attracts and retains moisture like crazy. This naturally occurring substance is renowned by top dermatologists as the “the key molecule involved in skin moisture.” Our Ultra Hyaluronic Cream is composed of hyaluronic acid and other ingredients that boost moisture by 300 percent.

    Hydrate

    Hydration is critical, especially during hot summer weather. Start the morning off with a cup of green tea, which is loaded with anti-aging antioxidants, and then drink water all day ling. Have a bottle with you everywhere, and if you have a cocktail or glass of wine, be sure to have a glass of water before and after to minimize damage.

    Have a safe and fun holiday!

  • 5 Reasons to Wear Sunblock

    Protective Sunblock with SPF 30It’s always shocking to me when clients who practice Facercise daily ask if they need to wear sunblock. Your skin is your largest organ, so it needs the most protection. If you don’t wear it every single day, believe me, you will regret it! Applying sunblock every day is essential for both anti-aging and protecting your overall health. My Protective Sunblock SPF 30 is one of my best-sellers because it provides grease-free, long-lasting protection.

    Read on for five reasons to make proper skin protection a priority.

    1.  Sunblock Protects Against Dangerous UV Rays

    The ozone layer is depleting—this means you need powerful protection from harmful rays and sunburn. We’ve all been there—red skin that feels hot and painful to the touch and sometimes even blisters and peels. No bueno! While the immediate suffering fades away in a few days, the sun damage can be permanent and plays a role in those fine lines and wrinkles we’re all trying to avoid. Don’t risk it for a second—wear sunscreen every single day, rain or shine.

    2. Skin Cancer is on The Rise

    Even with all the information out there about the sun’s harmful rays, more and more cases of skin cancer are reported each year. Wearing sunscreen reduces your risk of this potentially deadly disease.

    3. Sunblock Combats Discoloration

    Many skin conditions, such as hyperpigmentation and age spots, are a direct result of sun exposure. The sun can also exacerbate melasma, rosacea and overall sensitivity.

    4. It Slows Down Wrinkling and Premature Aging

    Research shows that regular use of sunblock protects against photoaging, which includes wrinkling and loss of elasticity caused by exposure to the sun's ultraviolet radiation.

    5. Sunblock Reduces the Appearance of Veins and Redness

    The sun’s dangerous ultraviolet rays destroy the collagen that surrounds the tiny veins and capillaries in facial skin, resulting in greater visibility. The appearance of those red veins, blotchiness and redness grows more pronounced with repeated sun exposure.

  • Summer Produce for Anti-Aging

    facial exercisesSummer weather brings delicious produce that makes your skin glow and boosts the results of your daily facial exercises. They are loaded with antioxidants, which help prevent wrinkles and boost collagen production. They also fight free radical damage and can help kill off cancerous cells.

    Some of the most antioxidant-rich foods are produce, so it makes sense to load up. Opt for a colorful array to target every beauty, health and anti-aging concern.

    Tomatoes

    Tomatoes should be a mainstay of an anti-aging diet. They are packed with lycopene, a carotenoid that combats free radicals while protecting against sun damage and harmful bacteria. Lycopene strengthens the skin by combating the activity of collagenases, evil little enzymes that breakdown collagen. It also promotes healthy teeth and gums.

    Kale

    This dark leafy green is one of the best sources of vitamin K, which is important for cardiovascular health. Kale is another excellent source of lycopene, as well as antioxidants including phytofluene, phytoene and beta-carotene. Beta-carotene protects the skin against UV and free radical damage. It can also help your skin glow naturally!

    Watermelon

    This juicy antiaging superfood is very hydrating due to its high water content. It also boasts lycopene, as well as vitamins A and C. These powerful antioxidants combat free radical and sun damage, while stimulating collagen to keep skin firm and supple. Watermelons also contain arginine, which promotes hair growth by stimulating the scalp.

    Eggplant

    This purple veggie contains antioxidants and anthocyanins that help our skin glow, while boosting the fight against free radicals. Like watermelons, eggplants contain a lot of water, so they help keep the skin soft and hydrated. They are also an important source of nasunin, which has been show to help slow down the growth of cancerous cells.

    Red Bell Pepper

    Red bell pepper’s bright red color is indicative of their high antioxidant content. One pepper contains more than 200 percent of your recommended daily intake of vitamin C and are a great source of folate and vitamin B6.

  • The Magic of Hyaluronic Acid

    hyaluronic acidHyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring carbohydrate molecule that helps keep skin, tissue and joints moisturized. It has a tremendous capacity for retaining large volumes of water on the skin and provides cellular structure. Over the past decade, countless dermatologists and researchers have deemed it “the key molecule involved in skin moisture.”

    As a result, multitudes of serums and creams have been introduced into the marketplace featuring this essential ingredient. Our Ultra Hyaluronic Cream is one of our best sellers because it contains ingredients that, when combined with hyaluronic acid, have been shown to increase skin moisture by 300%. My clients call it “magic in a jar.”

    Read on to discover the magic of this incredible molecule.

    Hyaluronic Acid Boosts Collagen

    Hyaluronic acid boosts collagen synthesis. Collagen is a protein that is critical for maintaining skin’s elasticity, flexibility and firmness. It gives shape, structure and integrity to the skin, as well as tissue, muscles, bones, tendons and important organs. While it is the most abundant protein in our body, it decreases as we age. By adding hyaluronic acid in a form that is easily absorbed into your skin, like our Ultra Hyaluronic Cream, you can help keep skin supple and combat sagging.

    Hyaluronic Acid Provides Unrivaled Moisture

    The hydration that this molecule provides is intense—clients report dewy, glowing skin with improved texture. It delivers lasting moisture and rehydrates the damage done by the sun and other elements, as well as the hormone replacement treatments that can make skin look older and drier. It reduces dryness and flakiness to make skin appear smoother and more youthful.

    Hyaluronic Acid Helps Reduce Wrinkles

    Wrinkles are caused by the normal aging process as well as damage from the sun and free radicals. Hyaluronic acid provides moisture and increases skin volume, which plumps up wrinkles and reduces their appearance. The moisture and improved elasticity this miracle molecule provides decreases the depth of wrinkles significantly with consistent use. Clients even report a reduction in the bags under their eyes.

  • How to Get Your Beauty Sleep

    facial exercisesBeauty sleep is critical, but the position we sleep in is even more important. Sleeping in the wrong position can derail the results of your facial exercises and cause those deep creases many call "sleep lines." I also causes back pain and saggy breasts.  Even if you use the softest pillow you can find, it puts pressure on your face and results in a pattern of lines that shows exactly how you sleep.

    If you want to preserve your youthful good looks and overall health, it’s essential to sleep on your back. It prevents those nasty “sleep” lines from forming around your eyes, sides of your face and nasolabial folds.

    Sleeping on your back also helps you maintain facial symmetry. As we age, our skeletal structure shrinks and we lose the fat in our faces. Look at a picture of yourself when you were in your 20s wearing large earrings and then another photo of yourself in your 40s with large earrings. You will notice that your face is smaller in the photo taken in your 40s. Sleeping on your back is can help keep your face symmetrical and protect the results you work so hard to attain with facial exercises.

    Sleeping on your back is also the best way for your head, neck and spine to maintain a neutral position. This is essential for those who have suffered back injuries and helps prevent future problems.

    Last but not least, sleeping on your back helps avoid those chest wrinkles that are so difficult to get rid of and helps you maintain perky breasts. Sleeping on your stomach or side causes those unsightly creases and puts weight on your breast tissue, which contributes to sagginess over time. When you sleep on your back, your breasts are fully supported, which actually helps prevent that dreaded sagginess.

    If you’re having trouble falling asleep this way, put a pillow under your knees and hug another to your chest. It is psychologically the same as if you were sleeping in the fetal position on your side. You can also practice by lying in bed for 15 minutes or so, on your back to develop muscle memory in that position. Just like we do our facial exercises to train our muscles, we can train our bodies for healthier sleep.

  • 6 Summer Skincare Tips

    facial exercisesSummer weather is here, which means it’s time to boost your anti-aging defenses. Even when you do facial exercises daily, you still need to protect against sun damage if you want to maintain youthful good looks. You will most likely be outdoors more than usual, wearing less clothes and smack in the middle of some harmful elements like UV rays and free radicals. If you’re not careful, exposure to these stressors can cause premature aging, fine lines, wrinkles and hyperpigmentation.

    Fortunately, you can take measures to prepare and protect your skin for hotter weather. Arm yourself with these six summer skincare tips and you’ll emerge from the season unscathed.

    1. Pay Attention to Your Pout

    Lip tissue is very delicate and susceptible to the sun’s powerful rays. Overexposure leads to chapping, burning and an increased appearance of fine lines. Always wear a lip balm with SPF 15 or more, re-apply it often and use glosses and lipstick with sun protection as well. Apply Nourishing E Oil to re-hydrate on a daily basis.

    2. Layer Protection

    Don’t just apply sunscreen and call it a day. Start with a potent vitamin C Serum like my High Density C Serum, which brightens skin, boosts collagen production and protects against sun damage. It has even been shown to repair damage from the sun and other environmental stressors. Layer sunscreen over it for the ultimate defense against dangerous UV rays. Re-apply sunscreen throughout the day.

    3. Exfoliate

    Summer weather and activities increase the debris from dead cells that clogs our pores and dulls our skin. Slough away these dead cells to reveal glowing skin and allow for better absorption of skincare products. Exfoliate both your face and body one to three times a week, depending on your skin type. Dry brush every day to accelerate the process and make your body appear more toned and lifted.

    4. Stay Hydrated

    Hotter temperatures can cause your skin and entire body to dehydrate. Load up on water every day to keep your internal and external hydration levels in balance. It will also boost the detoxification process.

    5. Wear Sunglasses and a Wide-Brimmed Hat

    Sunglasses reduce squinting and protect the delicate area around your eyes. A wide-brimmed hat will shade your face as much as possible.

    6. Wear SPF Clothing

    If you’re going to be outside for an extended period of time, wear SPF clothing for added protection. You can easily burn your skin even while wearing clothes, so don’t take the chance. If you can’t find any SPF attire that you like, use Rit-Guard, a colorless dye that adds sun guard to your clothes. It’s easy to use—you simply add it to your washing machine and do your laundry as usual.

  • How to Stay on Track Memorial Day Weekend

    body sculptingThis weekend marks the unofficial start of summer! For many this means outdoor fun, barbecues and special events. No matter what this weekend means to you, there is no better time to get your summer body in gear and start rocking a healthy, youthful glow. If you practice moderation, do your facial exercises daily and follow the tips below, you’ll look your best this weekend and beyond.

    Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate

    Proper hydration is essential this weekend and throughout the summer. Drinking water and green tea helps flush the toxins from your system and fills you up. Thirst is often mistaken for hunger, so if you think you’re hungry but aren’t sure, try a glass of water. Hydration also keeps our cells plumped up! When our skin cells are dehydrated, collagen breaks down and dulls our skin. Drink lemon water for an extra detoxifying boost.

    Work it Out

    Even though it’s a holiday weekend, make time to exercise. You may consume more calories than usual, so it’s definitely not the time to slack off of your routine. Make time even when you’re on vacation! If you can’t hit the gym or an exercise class, go for a run around the neighborhood. It will boost serotonin levels and circulation, which imparts a healthy glow.

    Sculpt It

    It’s essential to stick to your dry brushing and No Lipo Lipo body sculpting regimens as well. If you haven’t started these programs, there is no better time than the present. You will see results in a matter of weeks. Do these routines even if you are out of town. You can easily stash one of our Sisal Louffas in your suitcase and all you need for No Lipo Lipo is some Nourishing E Oil.

    Slather on the Sunscreen

    You can never wear too much sunscreen! There’s a chance you’ll be outdoors more than normal, and even if you aren’t, damage can occur in just a few minutes of sun exposure. Apply it to your face and body a minimum of 20 minutes before you head outside and re-apply throughout the day.

    Pamper Yourself

    Your skin will be on display more than usual during the warmer months, so do an exfoliating mask like Face Lift to Go. You can do the Body Lifting Masque on your body to make skin appear firmer, more toned and lifted.

    Stick to the Program

    Don’t skip a beat when it comes to your daily facial exercises. If you’re on the road this weekend, you can stream the Ultimate Facercise on Amazon Video.

    Be Moderate

    Give yourself a cheat day, but not the entire weekend. Make sure not to arrive anywhere on an empty stomach, or you will be sure to overeat. Have a protein-packed snack before you head out and set some boundaries in advance. If you plan to imbibe, limit it to one or two whine spritzers or something similar. Drink a glass of water in between each alcoholic drink to maintain hydration and prevent a hangover.

  • Top 4 Sources of Vitamin C

    vitamin C serumIf you’re seeking younger looking skin, vitamin C is a game changer. It’s a powerful antioxidant that can prevent and undo damage while brightening and firming the skin. It’s important to eat a vitamin C-rich diet and incorporate it into your skincare routine. When applied using a topical vitamin C serum, it combats sun damage in the form of age spots, hyperpigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles and elasticity. Our High Density C Serum is a free radical scavenger that makes skin look younger and healthier. When coupled with a daily regimen of facial exercises, you’ll take years off of your appearance.

    To turn back the clock, consume foods packed with vitamin C and use High Density C Serum every day. Here are three excellent sources of vitamin C.

    1. Fruit

    Produce is loaded with vitamin C, with many fruits leading the pack. Oranges, papayas, watermelon, cantaloupe, grapefruit, pineapple, lemons, acerola cherries and strawberries deliver more than the daily recommended amount of 60 mg. Guavas top the chart with nearly 250 mg per fruit. Mangoes contain a whopping 122 mg per serving, along with high levels of zeaxanthin, an antioxidant that promotes healthy eyesight. Just two kiwis pack 128 mg and are rich in serotonin, a hormone that helps regulate sleep, mood and appetite.

    2. Vegetables

    Green leafy veggies are excellent sources of vitamin C. Brussels sprouts, spinach, kale, broccoli, collard greens and mustard greens are great options that pack a serious fiber punch. Bell peppers, tomatoes, cauliflower and kohlrabi all yield remarkable levels of vitamin C and other potent antioxidants. A surprisingly high source of vitamin C are chili peppers, which contain 216 mg per serving. These anti-inflammatory veggies rev your metabolism with their capsaicin content while adding spice to any dish.

    3. Vitamin C Serum

    A topical product like my powerful High Density C Serum brightens, firms and protects skin. It’s packed with antioxidants that fight free radicals while reversing damage from the sun and other environmental stressors. What sets this vitamin C serum apart is that it is composed with magnesium ascorbyl phosphate as opposed to ascorbic acid. This delivers this free radical scavenger to the skin gently and more effectively than other products. High Density C Serum fades sun spots and hyperpigmentation while imparting a healthy, youthful glow. Apply it everywhere that you want better skin—the face, hands, neck, décolletage, arms and legs.

    4. Vitamin C Supplement

    Adding a vitamin C supplement to your diet may boost your anti-aging efforts and immune system. Some opt for ester-c, which can be easier on the stomach.

    You’ll see a marked difference in your skin after just a few weeks of using High Density C Serum and increasing vitamin C intake. Click here to learn more about this incredible vitamin C serum.
