5 Reasons to Start Dry Brushing Today

dry brushingIf you’re ready to change the way your feel and look, then there is no better time to start a dry brushing body sculpting routine. One of the best ways to achieve a more toned, smooth appearance is with a daily dry brushing regimen. It’s the perfect complement to exercise and the No Lipo Lipo program. It’s safe, natural and effective—so forget the idea of risky surgical procedures like liposuction.

This body sculpting practice takes only a few minutes a day but the results are incredible. Read on to learn about some of the awesome benefits!

1. A Rosy, Youthful Glow

Dry brushing with Sisal louffas exfoliates so that you shed dead skin cells like crazy. It also improves circulation and the flow of oxygen-rich blood to your skin cells. This imparts radiance to the skin, a brighter complexion and a rosy, youthful glow. You can also dry brush your face! It’s a wonderful adjunct to the Facercise program of revolutionary facial exercises. If used regularly, dry brushing exfoliates, tones, tightens and actually lifts the skin of the face and neck. The exfoliation process initiates strong blood supply to the skin, sheds dead skin cells and allows the skin to breathe and function better. Shedding old dead skin cells effectively accelerates the turnover process, making way for new fresh cells. This exfoliation unclogs the pores and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Your skin will actually begin to glow! Exfoliating the skin also allows the skin to better absorb your skincare products.

2. Detox

Dry brushing boosts the lymphatic system, which is responsible for eliminating toxins from your body. This helps you eliminate waste faster and is what contributes to the body sculpting and weight loss effects of this technique. When toxins build up, we gain weight and can develop illnesses.

3. Smoother Skin

The level of exfoliation achieved with dry brushing diminished the dead skin cells that makes skin appear dull and feel rough. It unclogs pores and expedites cell turnover so that your skin is softer and smoother. Your skin will also be less prone to breakouts.

4. Diminished Cellulite

Stimulating circulation and the lymphatic system leads to firmer, smoother skin. This helps diminish the appearance of cottage-cheese like bumps under the skin aka cellulite.

5. Better Health

Dry brushing has been shown to release endorphins, which promotes a better mood. It also stimulates digestion and healthy kidney function. A regular routine will help you be a better, healthier version of yourself!

7 Ways to Stay on Track Memorial Day Weekend 396 417 Facercise

7 Ways 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 body sculpting 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.

This technique is one of the best ways to exfoliate, which detoxifies the skin, unclogs pores and expedites cell turnover. You’ll experience less breakouts and softer, smoother skin.

3. It Stimulates the Lymphatic System

The lymphatic system helps flush toxins from your body. When it’s not working properly, these toxins build up and lead to weight gain and illness. Dry brushing stimulates this process so that cellular waste is eliminated faster.

4. Reduced the Appearance of Cellulite

With improved circulation and detoxification, skin becomes firmer. This helps reduce the appearance of unsightly cellulite.

6 Ways to Recover From the Holidays 500 333 Facercise

6 Ways to Recover From the Holidays

It’s a fact—the average American gains weight over the holidays. Temptation is in full force, making healthy eating tougher than ever. Yet the answer is not skipping meals or fasting after the holidays are over. It’s time to implement some new body sculpting habits and tweak your lifestyle so you can undo the holiday damage.

Here are some simple tips to combat holiday weight gain.

Hit the Grocery Store

Make a list, check it twice and hit the store. Shop for healthy, unprocessed foods and load up on lean protein and veggies. Once you’ve stocked the refrigerator, you have no excuse to eat unhealthy foods and it will be easier than ever to meal prep.

Eliminate Temptation

Get rid of the holiday leftovers, cookies and candies as soon as you can. It’s so easy to reach for something sweet when you experience stress. Remove the temptation and replace it with fruits and veggies.

Avoid the Scale

Jumping on the scale right after holiday indulging can cause more stress than it’s worth. You may be extra bloated so the number on the scale won’t be the best reflection of your actual weight. Instead, eat healthy and exercise for a week—then step on the scale. You’ll have put a dent in some of the damage and won’t upset yourself prematurely.

Dry Brush

Help detox your system and exfoliate dead skin cells by dry brushing daily with one of our Sisal Louffas. It boosts the lymphatic system, which helps flush the toxins from your system. Plus, your skin will glow!

Have Smart Snacks on Hand

Stock up on healthy snacks to keep hunger at bay and stabilize your blood sugar levels. This will help you avoid temptation in the form of holiday leftovers. Opt for low-calorie snacks with protein and fiber to stave off hunger.

Do No Lipo Lipo

No Lipo Lipo helps break up the fat in the connective tissue while boosting the detoxification process. It makes muscles appear more toned and can help you lose inches all over the body when performed daily. Use our No Lipo Lipo DVD to use this system in the comfort of your home.

6 Tips for Avoiding Thanksgiving Weight Gain 500 334 Facercise

6 Tips for Avoiding Thanksgiving Weight Gain

Thanksgiving is here and with it comes loads of temptation. If you’ve been exercising, dry brushing and body sculpting with No Lipo Lipo, you don’t want the holiday to turn into an all-out binge. You can still enjoy Thanksgiving without getting off track by practicing moderation and sticking to healthy habits as much as possible.

These expert tips will help you maintain your physique through the holiday without feeling deprived.

1. Don’t Arrive Hungry

One of the worst things people do is skip meals so they can go all out at Thanksgiving dinner. This is a big mistake—you’re bound to overeat if you sit down for a big meal on a grumbling stomach. Skipping meals also slows your metabolism, which can signal your body to store fat. Eat a light protein-based breakfast and lunch, and have a small snack an hour or a half hour before eating dinner.

2. Wear Form Fitting Clothes

Don’t dress in baggy, saggy clothes for your holiday meals. Wear something formfitting and snug so that you’ll feel uncomfortable faster if you start eating too much. Make it a goal to get through the meal without having to unbutton anything.

3. Choose White Meat

Skinless white meat from turkey breast is much lighter and leaner than dark meat. It’s an excellent source of lean protein and contains only one gram of fat. Lean protein is key for a meal like Thanksgiving—it fills us up and promotes healthy digestion. Turkey also contains beneficial levels of potassium, zinc, iron, B vitamins and tryptophan.

4. Limit Alcohol Intake

Alcohol is filled with empty calories, so limit it or avoid it altogether at calorie-laden meals like Thanksgiving. If you do have an alcoholic drink, alternate it

5. Avoid Gravy

Gravy is loaded with saturated fat and sodium. At a meal packed with so much flavor, you really won’t miss adding gravy to the mix; but resisting it will save you calories and help you avoid feeling bloated,

6. Stick to Your Regimen

Squeeze in some exercise Thanksgiving morning and follow your normal dry brushing and No Lipo Lipo body sculpting regimens. If you don’t have to work, try to exercise every day of the holiday weekend. This will help offset your indulgences and reduce stress.

These healthy tips and our No Lipo Lipo body sculpting technique will help you look and feel your very best this holiday season.

Instead, prepare snacks in advance so that you won’t make unhealthy choices. Have fruit and veggies at your desk at work, stash bags of nuts like cashews, walnuts or almonds in your purse. For those days when time is scarce, have a low sugar protein bar on hand to stave off cravings.

Exfoliation

It helps gets rid of dead skin cells and unclogs pores, which promotes faster cell renewal and helps the skin appear smoother and brighter.

Circulation

With more blood circulating to your skin, it becomes firmer and develops a youthful glow. Improved blood flow also reduces the appearance of cellulite.

Detoxification

Dry brushing stimulates the lymphatic system, which is responsible for eliminating cellular waste from your body. When your lymphatic system is not functioning properly, toxins can build up in your body and make you ill or gain weight. Dry brushing helps eliminate fluids and toxins from the body, which improves vascular blood circulation and lymphatic drainage.

Tightening & Toning

Next to exercise and No Lipo Lipo, consistent dry brushing is one of the most effective way to tone muscles and lift the skin.

Boosted Overall Health

Studies show that regular dry brushing promotes healthy digestion and improves kidney function. It also elevates your mood!

3 Cellulite Reduction Tips 500 750 Facercise

3 Cellulite Reduction Tips

cellulite reductionCellulite is a common problem that is on our minds all year, but especially when summer is on its way. The good news is, there are natural body sculpting methods that reduce the appearance of unsightly cellulite—and liposuction is not one of them. Many plastic surgeons agree that liposuction cannot target the fibrous bands that make up cellulite. In fact, this invasive and often risky surgical procedure often times makes its appearance worse. Read on for three stellar non-surgical tips for cellulite reduction.

1. Hydrate Properly

One of the easiest and best things you can do to make skin appear smoother is to maintain proper hydration. Drinking water plumps up the skin cells and flushes the toxins from your body, which also aids weight loss.

2. Boost Circulation

It’s essential for lymphatic circulation to function properly for our bodies to stay healthy and for toxins to be flushed from our systems. One of the best ways to stimulate our lymphatic systems is with dry brushing. A third of the toxins in our bodies are eliminated through our skin; dry brushing helps to remove the toxins that get trapped and effectively opens and unclogs pores. It tightens and firms the skin while promoting cell renewal. For optimum results, use one of my Sisal Louffas imported from Germany. Other ways to rev circulation include exercise and a healthy diet.

3. Do No Lipo Lipo

No Lipo Lipo is an excellent method for breaking up the fibrous bands that form cellulite. This knuckle-type massage treatment boosts circulation and lymphatic drainage, making it the perfect complement to dry brushing. You’ll diffuse the appearance of cellulite and lose inches with this easy treatment. With the DVD, you can learn to perform this technique on yourself in the comfort and privacy of your own home.

5 Ways to Trim Belly Fat 500 281 Facercise

5 Ways to Trim Belly Fat

body sculptingOne of the biggest concerns our body sculpting clients have is belly fat. The tummy is an area where stubborn fat can persist, even when we’re at an ideal weight. Stress causes overproduction of cortisol, which can increase hunger and contribute to unsightly weight gain—and even rolls—in the midsection. If you want to target that area specifically, the tips below will help make a real difference. Keep in mind that consistency is key!

1. Load Up on Lean Protein

Lean protein is essential for shedding belly fat and losing weight. It helps builds lean muscle mass, which causes you to burn more calories on a daily basis. It will also fill you up so you eat less overall. Some excellent sources include poultry, salmon, tuna, mackerel, eggs, quinoa and lentils.

2. Cut Back on Sugar

Refined sugar causes weight gain, belly fat and wreaks havoc on your blood sugar levels. Cut out sugars as much as possible.  Saved those baked goods for a treat once in a great while and cut out the sugar-laden juices and soda. Reduce your intake of simple carbs like white bread and pasta since they convert to sugar in your system.

3. Dry Brush Daily

Dry brushing stimulates the lymphatic system, which flushes the toxins from your body. This assists with weight loss and breaking down fat in the connective tissue. Our new Louffa Bundle for Face & Body contains all you need for both body sculpting and facial benefits.

4. Do No Lipo Lipo for Body Sculpting

No Lipo Lipo is a revolutionary body sculpting method that targets your trouble areas and breaks down fatty deposits. You can do sessions at our spa in Redondo Beach or any of our licensed locations. If you prefer to do it in the privacy and comfort of your own home, you can use the No Lipo Lipo DVD. It provides comprehensive instructions so that you can quickly and easily master your technique.

5. Exercise Regularly

Regular workouts are essential for losing belly fat and toning muscles. Consistency is key—strive to exercise several days a week for a solid duration. For best results, incorporate all three pillars of training: cardio, flexibility and strength/resistance. Find something that works for you and do it four to five days week. Increase the duration and intensity of your workouts over time.
