5 Things to Avoid If You Want to Look Younger 500 281 Facercise

5 Things to Avoid If You Want to Look Younger

facial exercisesYou don’t have to get Botox and other fillers if you want to maintain fresh, youthful good looks. In fact, a good skin care protocol coupled with daily facial exercises will make you look younger and more natural than dermal fillers. It’s also important to avoid bad habits that break down collagen, slow circulation and cause the formation of wrinkles.

Here are five habits to eliminate immediately if you want to combat the signs of aging and maintain your looks.

1. Smoking

If you want to look older, keep smoking! The repetition of the movements involved with smoking causes deep lines around the lip area and all over the face. It slows the blood supply to our skin cells, depletes vitamin A and causes collagen to break down. The result is wrinkles, fine lines and dull, grey skin.

2. Sunbathing

The sun’s powerful ultraviolet rays cause significant damage in the form of sun spots, hyperpigmentation, deep lines and wrinkles. It also breaks down collagen, which is responsible for the flexibility and firmness of our skin. Stay out of the sun and protect your skin by wearing, hats, protective clothing and sunblock with a high SPF.

3. Squinting

Squinting causes Crow’s feet, undereye bags and those lovely brow furrows nicknamed the “elevens.” Wear sunglasses to protect the area and rock a hat whenever you step into the sun. If you need readers, wear them!

4. Sleeping on Your Stomach

Sleeping on your stomach smashes the skin on your face, neck and decolletage into the pillow and sheets. The pressure causes creases that can become permanent over time. Sleep on your back to prevent this from happening.

5. Excessive Drinking

Too much alcohol dehydrates your skin, causes blood vessels to burst and leads to sleep deprivation. These effects accelerate the signs of aging and diminish overall beauty.

Why We Need Sunblock All Year Long 500 320 Facercise

Why We Need Sunblock All Year Long

sunblockSunblock is not just for summer! Even some of my most devout Facercise clients only think about UV damage during summer months—this is a huge mistake. Just like you need to do facial exercises daily for optimum results, sunblock is necessary every day, rain or shine.

UV Rays are Potent

The sun produces three types of ultraviolet (UV) rays: UVA, UVB and UVC. Few are aware of UVC rays, but they are the most dangerous. While the atmosphere shields most UVC rays, we are not protected from UVA and UVB. Both types wreak serious damage; UVB rays can immediately scorch the top layers of the dermis while UVA rays affect the deeper layers of the skin.

UVA damage causes problems that are difficult to eradicate, including discoloration, sun spots and wrinkles. Both of these types of potent rays can lead to sunburns, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and even skin cancer.

Outdoor Exposure

If you go outdoors, you’re exposed to the dangerous UV rays. The sun literally never powers down! If you are in snowy weather, sun damage can be even stronger than in the summer—snow and ice can reflect nearly 90 percent of these powerful rays. Clouds are no match for blocking these rays either. You need to apply sunscreen even if you only plan to be outside briefly—a short walk to the car can intensify pre-existing damage within minutes. Apply sunblock a minimum of 20 minutes before you step foot outside.

You’re Never Safe

UVA rays can reach you in your car, even if you have tinted windows! Apply sunscreen for the car ride! Many suffer from uneven skin tone or sun spots on side of their face, neck and arms that is exposed by the driver’s side window. It’s a good idea to wear sunglasses and a hat for added protection.

Bottom line, you need a strong sunblock to protect your fragile skin all year long! Click through for information on our powerful sunblock and anti-aging system of facial exercises.

5 Collagen Boosting Tips 500 334 Facercise

5 Collagen Boosting Tips

facial exercisesIf you want firm, glowing skin, collagen is key! It’s a fibrous protein that works together with elastin to provide structural support for the skin. These proteins are also responsible for firmness and elasticity. Unfortunately, as we age, collagen breaks down and its production slows. This is where facial exercises and a few other tricks can come in handy.

Boost collagen production with the following anti-aging tips:

1. Protect Your Skin

Free radicals and the sun’s dangerous UV rays scavenge and deplete collagen. This shows up as photodamage, such as fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and sun spots. It also causes sagginess and loss of elasticity. Prevent these unsightly issues by wearing sunblock every single day, rain or shine. Apply all over your face, hands, arms, neck and décolletage—even the tops of your ears, as they are extremely vulnerable. It’s good to eat foods rich in beta-carotene and lycopene, antioxidants that help protect the skin from the inside out. Tomatoes, squash, yams, watermelon, papaya, beets, grapefruit and bell peppers are all excellent sources.

2. Facercise Daily

Facial exercises boost circulation which helps deliver oxygen to the skin cells. This stimulates collagen production and gives you a rosy glow. A consistent Facercise practice also prevents atrophy and strengthens muscle memory. The result is firmer, smoother skin with more defined contours and a decreased appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

3. Eat Right

It’s important to consume lean, complete protein that provides all nine of the essential amino acids. Foods that contain high levels of sulphur have also been shown to promote collagen production. Some good options are garlic, legumes and cabbage. Vitamin C is also essential for cellular regeneration and collagen production. Eat lots of citrus, berries and green leafy vegetables to get your vitamin C fill.

4. Apply Vitamin C Topically

A vitamin C serum works wonders for stimulating collagen and brightening skin. Our Vitamin C Complex Serum protects against free radical and sun damage that breaks down collagen.

5. Avoid Smoking

Smoking restricts the blood flow, which leads to smoker’s face. This includes those lines around the lips and dry, leathery texture that makes you look 10 years older. Cut out smoking completely!

3. Facercise Makes Your Skin Glow

By boosting circulation, Facercise helps deliver more oxygen to skin cells and eliminate dead ones. The result is a brighter, more evened out complexion, improved texture and a youthful glow. Your skin will also be better able to absorb moisture and skin care products.

4. Facial Exercises Combat Wrinkles

The increased blood flow and circulation that Facercise creates also helps to smooth and counteracts fine lines and wrinkles. Facial exercises prevents wrinkles by stimulating collagen.

5. It Improves Medical Conditions

Much research shows that facial exercises relax, stretch and strengthen the 57 synergistic muscles of the face and neck. This can relieve and heal the symptoms of Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction (TMJ), a condition that causes pain in the jaw area and hinders movement. Facercise has also helped heal Bell’s palsy in numerous patients who have written us to share their results.

5 Tips For a Holiday Glow 500 334 Facercise

5 Tips For a Holiday Glow

facial exercisesIf you’re practicing your facial exercises daily, your skin is already glowing! But there is no such thing as too much glow, which is why I’m sharing some tips to maximize your beautiful self. The tips below will help you look gorgeous for all your holiday events and beyond.

1. Beauty Sleep

Adequate sleep is a must during the holidays! When you skimp on sleep, your skin gets dull and dark circles form. Your skin rejuvenates and repairs itself while you rest, which is why so many popular anti-aging products are designed for nighttime use. Figure out how much sleep you need on a nightly basis, make a schedule and stick to it.

2. Facial Exercises

Facercise firms and tightens your skin while imparting a healthy, youthful glow. Do facial exercises twice a day to prevent the signs of aging and improve your skin’s health. If time is an issue, the Ultimate Facercise DVD includes an eight-minute superset that is easy to squeeze in.

3. Exercise

This time of year can be hectic, which makes it tempting to ditch your exercise regimen for the season. Don’t do it! Regular workouts throughout the holidays make a big difference in your sanity and appearance. When you prioritize your workouts during the holidays, you’ll reduce stress and be less apt to gain weight. Exercise stimulates blood circulation, which contributes to your glow, and boosts endorphins so you’re happier.

4. Get Masking

Masks are an excellent way to boost your skin’s radiance. Our Face Lift to Go is an enzymatic treatment that lifts, firms and imparts an unrivaled glow. Use it once a week or every 10 days for vibrant, beautiful skin.

5. Hydrate Properly

Drink plenty of water and avoid caffeine to prevent dehydration and dull skin. If you plan to consume alcohol at holiday events, have a glass of water in between each drink and practice moderation.

3 Foods That Boost Collagen 500 333 Facercise

3 Foods That Boost Collagen

Collagen is the body’s most abundant protein. While it is critical for our bone, muscle, ligament and tendon health, it also affects our looks. Collagen gives our skin its strength, elasticity, firmness and suppleness. It helps our skin cells renew themselves and fights off the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. While a solid anti-aging skin care regimen and facial exercises can help boost collagen production, this important protein cannot be absorbed through our skin. The good news is, we can boost collagen production by consuming certain foods. Read on to learn about three foods that will promote and stimulate collagen and help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.

1. Avocado

These babies are loaded with omega 3 fatty acids, which boost collagen production, decrease the risk of skin cancer and help keep us fuller longer. Avocados are also packed with vitamin E, which helps prevent free radical damage and fight off skin cell oxidation. In addition, avocado oil is rich in plant steroids, which helps reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation and revitalizes skin cells.

2. Turkey

Turkey boasts high levels of carnosine, an amino acid that promotes elasticity by rejuvenating skin cells and reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. This lean protein is also an excellent source of tryptophan, which is a mood booster, helps ensure proper sleep and is good for weight loss. It is also rich in zinc, which has anti-inflammatory properties, reduces dry skin and promotes cell growth.

3. Citrus

Citrus fruits such as lemons, oranges, strawberries, pineapple and papaya are loaded with vitamin C, which bolsters immunity and combats free radical damage. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that can also reduce and prevent sun damage while decreasing the formation of wrinkles. Studies show that proper vitamin C consumption can even reverse sun damage.

5 Ways to Prevent Wrinkles Naturally 500 394 Facercise

5 Ways to Prevent Wrinkles Naturally

facial exercisesBotox and dermal fillers are not the holy grail of anti-aging! There are natural, non-invasive ways to combat the signs of aging and look younger and more beautiful. A healthy lifestyle, good habits and a solid skincare regimen will work wonders without breaking your wallet. Follow the tips below to keep your skin looking as beautiful as possible.

1. Protect Against UV Rays

The sun’s dangerous ultraviolet (UV) rays break down collagen and elastin, the proteins that keep your skin firm and flexible. The sun also etches fine lines and wrinkles into your skin, making them deeper over time, and causes hyperpigmentation and sun spots. To prevent these unsightly signs of aging, wear a sunblock with a minimum of SPF 30 every single day, rain or shine. If you engage in outdoor activities, re-apply sunblock every hour. Wear a hat and sunglasses whenever you step outside and protective SPF clothing when possible.

2. Facercise Daily

Practice your facial exercises every single day, twice a day for best results. This will help smooth out lines and wrinkles, stimulate the delivery of oxygen to skin cells and boost collagen and elastin production.

3. Avoid Smoking & Drinking

These two vices wreak serious havoc on your appearance. Both dehydrate your skin, break down collagen and slow down circulation. Smoking also causes the formation of deep lines around the mouth and nasolabial folds.

4. Exfoliate Regularly

It’s important to shed the dead cells that dull skin and clog pores. Exfoliate on a regular basis to remove dead skin cells and promote cellular turnover.

5. Stop Squinting

Squinting causes Crow’s feet, under-eye bags and the brow furrow often referred to as “The 11s.” Wear sunglasses with SPF protection to protect delicate under eye skin and eliminate the need to squint. If you have trouble reading, get the appropriate eyeglasses immediately.

An antioxidant-rich diet can help your skin look younger, prevent the signs of future aging and boost your overall health.

Below are five fall superfoods to help you get next level results from your skincare and facial exercises.

Eggplant is available year-round, but peaks from July to October.

Nasunin packs powerful antiaging properties and has been shown to combat the spread of cancer. Eggplant also contains strong levels of dietary fiber, copper, manganese, folate, potassium, and vitamins B1, B6 and K.

2. Apples

Apple are loaded with dietary fiber, which fills us up and boosts digestion. They are an ideal source of vitamin C, which promotes immunity and collagen production. Collagen is an important protein substance responsible for the firmness and elasticity of our skin. Apples also contain high levels of copper and an array of phytonutrients, such as quercetin, that may help prevent cancer and other chronic illnesses.

3. Brussels Sprouts

These green leafy cruciferous veggies are loaded with dietary fiber—enough to fill you up for hours. They contain several flavonoid compounds and strong amounts of collagen-boosting vitamins A, C and K. Brussels sprouts are also a good source of folate, manganese, choline, copper, potassium, phosphorus and omega-3 fatty acids.

4. Pears

Delicious juicy pears are one of the best sources of fiber among fruits and contain a bevy of powerful anti-inflammatory polyphenols and flavonoids. They are also rich in potassium, copper and vitamins C and K.

5. Squash

6. Sweet Potatoes

Sweet potatoes are another great source of beta-carotene and iron with fierce anti-inflammatory properties. Boost your fiber intake by eating the skin!

4 Skin Care Mistakes to Avoid 500 693 Facercise

4 Skin Care Mistakes to Avoid

facerciseWhile many people spend time and money trying to prevent aging, often times they don’t protect that investment. We regularly hear from clients who do their daily facial exercises, get facials, exercise, eat right and spend hundreds of dollars on skin care products–and then undo all that good work with bad habits.

Below is a list of some of the most common beauty blunders made by men and women across the globe that  result in skin damage and premature aging. Make sure to avoid them all!

1. Smoking

This is one of the biggest blunders made—and its effects are some of the worst. Smoking is extremely toxic and causes premature aging while weakening your skin and body’s ability to heal wounds. It creates those nasty wrinkles around lips, stains teeth, creates bags under the eyes and can lead to thinning hair. Quit smoking right now and you will see a big difference in a matter of weeks!

2. Inadequate Sleep

Sleep deprivation wreaks havoc on your skin—both short-term and long-term. Sleep is when your skin and entire body rejuvenates itself, so when you skip out on your zzz’s, your skin doesn’t have time to repair.

3. Skipping Sunscreen

Research shows that almost 90 percent of wrinkles are caused by UV damage. Skipping sunscreen is obviously not a smart move. Apply it to your face, neck and hands every time you walk out the door and reapply it throughout the day—and wear it all year long.

4. Avoiding Exercise

Working out is essential for both your overall health and the youthful appearance of your skin and body. Exercise stimulates blood flow and circulation, which flushes your skin with oxygen-rich blood and strengthens its ability to repair itself. In addition, you get that healthy, youthful glow that we’re all striving for.

If you Facercise every day and avoid these mistakes, you’ll have great looking skin.
