6 Weapons for Cellulite Reduction 561 394 Facercise

6 Weapons for Cellulite Reduction

cellulite reductionLet’s face it—we all dread the “cottage cheese” appearance that cellulite causes on our legs, bum, stomach and arms. It’s one of the most difficult things to get rid of—people across the globe spend millions each year on topical agents and risky surgical procedures that promise cellulite reduction.

The good news is, there are some easy ways to reduce the appearance of this unsightly condition. If you want to feel more confident in swimsuits, shorts and sleeveless tops, try the methods below for safe yet effective results.

1. Flush, Flush, Flush

Proper hydration will flush out the toxins that lodge inside the fat layers underneath the skin, forming those bumpy lumps that appear as cellulite. Drinking water also plumps the skin, which can smooth out the appearance of those lumps.

2. Avoid the Whites

A healthy diet can prevent the formation of more cellulite and help diminish its appearance significantly. This means eating lots of lean protein and fiber-rich foods, while avoiding those with too much refined sugars and sodium. Overall, try to avoid as many processed foods as possible and steer clear of those with more than 200 mg of sodium per serving.

3. Dry Brushing

We always push our dry brushing technique, but for good reason—it stimulates the lymphatic system, which helps flush the toxins out of our body. It also boost circulation, which delivers oxygen to the cells and can help banish ugly cellulite before it forms.

4. Retinol Cream

Applying a topical formula such as my best-selling Retinol Conditioning Cream helps to smooth out the skin and make lumps less visible.

5. No Lipo Lipo

There is no better cure for cellulite than No Lipo Lipo treatments. If you can’t get to our spa, then get the No Lipo Lipo DVD and do this revolutionary treatment in the comfort of your own home.

6. Supplements

Kelp has been shown to burn body fat and therefore decrease the appearance of cellulite. Gotu Kola Extract is a caffeine-free supplement that thickens skin and improves elasticity. Try both for best results.

How to Fight Sun Spots 500 333 Facercise

How to Fight Sun Spots

facial exercisesIt’s the time of year when sun spots make their unwanted appearance. These unsightly discolorations are a form of hyperpigmentation caused by exposure to the sun’s dangerous ultraviolet (UV) rays. Sun spots show up on our most exposed areas, such as the face, neck, décolleté, arms, hands and legs. Unfortunately, they can’t be prevented with facial exercises or expensive moisturizers. Even if you wear sunscreen daily and reapply it often, they can still appear.

Once sun spots form, they can be difficult to get rid of. Follow these steps to help prevent these babies from showing up on your skin.

1. Avoid Sun Exposure

The best way to prevent sun spots is to avoid the sun altogether. If that’s not possible, stay indoors during between 10 am and 4 pm, when UV rays are at their peak strength.

2. Wear UV Protection

Protect your skin by wearing sunscreen with SPF 30 every single day, rain or shine. Our Protective Sunblock SPF 30 is an excellent, lightweight choice that melts into your skin. Re-apply every few hours, especially if you’re outside. Apply it to your face, neck, décolleté, hands and anywhere else that you don’t want sun spots. If you plan to be outside for a while, wear sunglasses, a wide-brimmed hat and clothing made with built-in SPF protection.

3. Eat Antioxidant-Rich Foods

Foods that contain antioxidants including lycopene and beta-carotene help protect against sun damage. Both of these nutrients act as an internal sunscreen, fighting damage from within. Colorful fruits and green leafy vegetables are good sources of these beneficial antioxidants.

4. Use Vitamin C

Vitamin C has antioxidant properties that have been shown to protect against UV damage and may even repair discolored skin cells. Eat lots of citrus and apply a topical product, like our Vitamin C Complex Serum.

5. Exfoliate Regularly

Exfoliating removes dead, pigmented cells and helps the living cells underneath them rise to the surface. Use a gentle product and consult with a dermatologist or esthetician to determine how many times a week is necessary. An excellent way to promote exfoliation and cell turnover is to use a retinol product like our Retinol Skin Conditioner regularly. It helps resolve sun spots while imparting a dewy, youthful glow.

6 Wrinkle Prevention Tips 1024 683 Facercise

6 Wrinkle Prevention Tips

collagen boosting exercisesThere are so many gimmicks in the marketplace that claim to reverse and prevent wrinkles—it’s easy to get caught up and want to try every new thing. Yet if you really want to make a difference, you need to make anti-aging a part of your lifestyle. When you incorporate habits like Facercise collagen boosting exercises, an antioxidant-rich diet and sleeping in a beneficial position, you’ll see a marked difference in a short amount of time. With a little bit of strategy and commitment, you can truly reverse the signs of aging and rock a healthy, youthful glow all year long.

1. Protect Your Skin From the Sun

One of the best anti-aging practices is to avoid the sun altogether. Its powerful ultraviolet (UV) UV rays cause damage in the forms of fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and skin cancer. UV rays also cause collagen breakdown, which leads to skin’s loss of firmness and elasticity. Apply SPF protection every single day and wear hats and sun-protective clothing whenever possible to avoid unsightly sun damage.

2. Facial Exercises

One of the best tried-and-tested methods for younger looking skin is daily facial exercises. They boost circulation, stimulate collagen production, improve skin tone and smooth fine lines and wrinkles. Facial exercises offer natural looking results that dermal fillers simply cannot compete with.

3. Sleep on Your Back

The best sleeping position for anti-aging is on your back. When you sleep on your stomach or your side, you smash your skin into the pillow and cause creases. Eventually, these creases become wrinkles. Sleeping on your back also prevents wrinkling on your décolletage.

4. Exfoliate Regularly

Regular exfoliation removes the dead skin cells that clog pores and draw attention to wrinkles and hyperpigmentation. Exfoliation imparts a smoother texture and brightens skin.

5. Eat an Antioxidant-Rich Diet

Consume a diet with lots of fruits, veggies and lean protein such as fatty fish like salmon for its vitamin D and omega-3 fatty acid content. Vitamin C is a powerful anti-aging tool, so consume lots of citrus and vegetables and take an Ester-C supplement if necessary.

6. Use Collagen-Boosting Products

Use products with ingredients that boost collagen, such as retinoids, vitamin C and glycolic acid like my best-selling  Vitamin C Complex Serum. It’s an excellent complement to Facercise collagen boosting exercises.

6 Ways to Reduce Cellulite 500 333 Facercise

6 Ways to Reduce Cellulite

Cellulite is a stubborn condition that both men and women suffer from—and one that is difficult to improve. It gives the appearance of dimpled skin everywhere from the legs and glutes to the arms and stomach. Many seek surgical treatments out of desperation to try and remove cellulite, but the results are unpredictable and often mediocre. The good news is, you can use a non-surgical body sculpting technique like the ones below to safely and effectively reduce the appearance of cellulite.

1. Flush Away the Toxins

It’s essential to drink lots of water to flush the toxins from your body that dwell under the skin’s fat layers and make skin appear bumpy. Proper hydration also plumps up the cells to make skin look smoother. For maximum benefits, squeeze lemon into your water and add green tea to your hydration plan.

2. Dry Brush

Dry brushing is an excellent technique for detoxifying skin. It stimulates circulation and breaks down fatty connective tissue to help skin glow and appear smoother. Regular dry brushing also helps prevent the formation of cellulite.

3. Apply Retinol

Retinol helps smooth dimpled areas and boosts collagen production. Apply a gentle topical retinoid like our Retinol Skin Conditioner nightly to diminish the appearance of cellulite.

4. Avoid Refined Carbs & Sugars

Refined carbs and sugars cause inflammation that makes fat cells grow and retain fluid. These fluids accumulate, slow down circulation and breakdown collagen and elastin, the proteins responsible for skin’s firmness and elasticity.

5. No Lipo Lipo

One of the best ways to eliminate unsightly cellulite is with No Lipo Lipo, a powerful, non-invasive body sculpting technique. It tones, firms and helps break down fatty tissue. Best of all, it can be performed in the comfort of your own home—you can now stream the No Lipo Lipo DVD on Amazon!

6. Infrared Saunas

Sweating in an infrared sauna detoxes pores and boosts circulation to facilitate delivery of oxygen to skin cells. This stimulates collagen production and improves skin tone and elasticity, which reduces the appearance of cellulite.

3 Unique Ways to Use Retinol Skin Conditioner 500 333 Facercise

3 Unique Ways to Use Retinol Skin Conditioner

retinol skin conditionerRetinol plays a critical role in your anti-aging. It’s a topical vitamin A derivative that boosts collagen production, speeds cell turnover and helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Our Retinol Skin Conditioner exfoliates the dead skin cells to impart a healthy glow and speeds cell turnover. It also smooths skin while improving skin tone and hyperpigmentation.

Retinol is one of the most effective products for promoting cell-communication. It functions as an antioxidant to help prevent free radical damage while healing and preventing acne. New research points to its ability to increase elastin production as well, making it the perfect complement to our proprietary system of facial exercises, Facercise.

Many people know to apply retinol to their faces every night before bedtime, but few realize that it can improve the skin all over the body as well. Here are three other ways that we recommend using Retinol Skin Conditioner.

1. On Your Hands

Retinol is very effective at reducing unsightly age spots and hyperpigmentation on hands. It smooths out wrinkles and deep creases, while adding volume by boosting collagen production. This is important since volume loss is one of the most common signs of aging on hands. The results from regular application of Retinol Skin Conditioner are more natural looking than those achieved by fillers and other hand rejuvenation procedures.

2. On Your Arms and Legs

Retinol can significantly reduce the appearance of crepey arms while evening out skin tone. It’s also an excellent way to lift and firm sagging skin on our legs and can even improve the appearance of cellulite.

3. On Your Stomach

Regular use of Retinol Skin Conditioner firms and tighten skin on the stomach. It reduces the appearance of dimply, bumpy skin in this area and promotes elasticity. When used in conjunction with a dry brushing and/or No Lipo Lipo regimen, you will see extraordinary results.

2022 Beauty Resolutions 1024 683 Facercise

2022 Beauty Resolutions

face exercisesAre you ready to change your life this year? A great way to start is to commit to looking your best possible, which in turn will make you feel better. When we follow a consistent beauty and antiaging regimen that includes face exercises, we see results! Below are some suggestions that will help you turn back the clock.

1. Get your Zzzs

Sleep is critical for healthy looking skin and maintaining your weight. In addition to those lovely dark circles sleep deprivation causes, research shows that it also accelerates the skin’s aging process, from increasing the appearance of wrinkles to hindering the dermis’ ability to repair UV damage.

2. Dry Brush

This technique boosts circulation and exfoliates dead skin cells to reveal a healthy, youthful glow. It also stimulates the lymphatic system, which helps flush the toxins from our body. For best results, use my Sisal louffas imported from Germany.

3. Facercise Daily

Do your facial exercises twice a day to help lift and firm sagging skin, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and boost circulation so that your skin glows.

4. Use Retinol

If you have yet to add retinol into your regimen, do it now. It boosts collagen to help speed cell turnover, which helps to smooth the skin and even out discoloration. Try my Retinol Skin Conditioner for optimum results.

5. Remove Makeup

Sleeping with makeup on causes serious skin chaos, from clogging pores and breaking down collagen to increasing exposure to free radicals, all of which result in premature aging.

6. Give Your Hands the Royal Treatment

Or at least give your hands the same treatment you give your face! Apply hand cream twice a day and wear sunscreen before you step out of the house. Treat them to a hydrating masque once a week and always wear gloves when you wash the dishes.

5 Ways to Avoid Fillers 500 333 Facercise

5 Ways to 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 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.

If you follow 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.

5 Ways to Look Younger Without Surgery 500 333 Facercise

5 Ways to Look Younger Without Surgery

anti-aging facial exercisesFrom anti-aging facial exercises and wearing sunscreen to diet and exercise, there are many ways to look younger without going under the knife. Looking youthful and fabulous is a result of how well you take care of yourself. Follow a few of my tips below and you’ll look and feel more vibrant and beautiful every day without resorting to plastic surgery.

1. Do Facial Exercises Daily

One of the quickest ways to look younger without cosmetic procedures is to do your facial exercises daily. I recommend my clients do Facercise twice a day for best results. Our anti-aging facial exercises reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, tone, lift and boost circulation to give you a healthy glow. If time is an issue, there is an eight-minute superset in our Ultimate Facercise program that gets you finished faster.

2. Smile

As we age, the corners of our mouth turn down, making us look grumpy. You can combat this by doing Facercise, but also by smiling regularly. It lifts your skin, freshens up your face and helps reprogram the corners of your mouth. Plus, it makes you appear friendlier and more approachable. Smile at work, whenever you go out and even when you answer the phone—you’ll sound happier to the person on the other end.

3. Use a Retinol Product

Next to sunscreen, retinol may be the most important product in your skin care regimen. It acts as an antioxidant, wielding its power against free radicals and repairing UV damage. Retinol quickly exfoliates dead skin cells, speeds cell turnover to even out skin tone, promotes collagen production, reduces the appearance of wrinkles and unclogs pores. Try my Retinol Skin Conditioner, which is gentle but extremely effective.

4. Adopt a Straight Posture

When you stand up straight, you look and feel younger and more confident. If you’re having issues with your posture, do Pilates or see a physical therapist to correct your issues. A healthy spine can improve the quality of your life tenfold.

5. Whiten Your Teeth

One of the most common telltale signs of aging is stained or yellowing teeth. With so many options at your fingertips, this should never be an issue. You can get your teeth professionally whitened, do it yourself at home and use whitening toothpaste and mouthwash on a daily basis.

How To Reduce Acne Scars 500 333 Facercise

How To Reduce Acne Scars

facial exercisesOne of the worst things about acne is scarring it leaves behind. These scars linger on and sometimes never go away. When our skin is inflamed, there is typically a mark left behind while the skin heals. This may go away over time, but if there is collagen damage, permanent scarring can occur in the form of keloids or depressed pores that look like an indentation. It’s a shame to let acne scars affect your appearance, especially when you do the work to look your best with facial exercises and good skincare.

Here are a few ways to reduce this unsightly condition.

Prevent Breakouts

This is probably the best way to avoid acne marks and scars. Follow an antioxidant-rich diet to reduce inflammation and avoid refined sugars and simple carbs that promote the growth of bacteria that causes acne.

Don’t Pick

We know you’ve heard this many times before, but don’t pick! It can cause permanent scarring after a breakout heals. Get a facial with a licensed, professional aesthetician if you really need extractions.

Wear Sunscreen

The sun’s powerful UV rays can darken breakout marks while they’re healing. This can make their appearance stick around longer. Wear sunscreen every single day, rain or shine to prevent this from happening.

Lighten and Brighten

Use a lightening product to fade scarring over time. There are many natural products you can find that have no side effects. One of our best-selling products is our Brightening Cream. It’s enriched with vitamin C, a powerful brightening agent with a bevy of other benefits. Our Brightening Cream is also very effective at eliminating rosacea.

Retinol Products

Retinol products are excellent for removing dark spots and keloids that acne leaves behind. Our Retinol Skin Conditioner is a super effective product for this issue! It promotes cell turnover and accelerates renewal, which fades the spots and hyperpigmentation caused by acne and sun damage. Our Retinol Skin Conditioner is a best-seller because its gentle formula works without causing irritation.

In-Spa Treatments

We offer two excellent treatments at Carole Maggio Day Spa that help reduce the appearance of acne scars: microdermabrasion and stem cell facials.

5 Tips for Using Retinol 500 333 Facercise

5 Tips for Using Retinol

facial exercisesWinter is the perfect time of year to add retinol to your beauty routine. Retinol is a vitamin A-derivative with powerful anti-aging effects that can dramatically change the appearance and texture of your skin. Regular use results in a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, large pores, acne scars, hyperpigmentation and “sun spots.”

Our Retinol Skin Conditioner is one of our best-sellers! While our products are mild, some retinols can cause dryness and irritation. Read on to learn five tips for using retinol effectively without any of these issues.

1. Start With a Gentle Product

It’s important to slowly introduce retinol to your regimen. Avoid starting with a prescription retinoid, as these can be too harsh on skin. Using a non-prescription retinol like Retinol Skin Conditioner is the safest, most gentle way to achieve results without irritation.

2. Go Slow

When you add retinol to your skin care program, don’t use it every night from the get-go. Retinol is a biologically active ingredient that needs a slow introduction. Start by using it every other night during the first week. On the second week, use it two nights in a row and take the third night off. Repeat. If your skin is extra sensitive, you may want to start off using it twice a week and then stepping up to every other night the following week. Follow either of these programs for the first three to four weeks and then you can add retinol in to your routine five to seven nights per week, depending on how your skin reacts to it. If you do experience any irritation or redness, cut back.

3. Apply to Dry Skin

For best results, wait 20 to 30 minutes after washing your face before applying a retinol product.

4. Wear Sunscreen Daily

Retinols make your skin more photosensitive, so be sure to apply sunscreen every single day. Sunlight can also render them ineffective, so if you don’t protect your skin from the sun, you’ll waste all that good product!

5. Moisturize Wisely

Many people apply moisturizer on top of their retinol. If you plan to do this, make sure the retinol absorbs a minimum of 20 minutes. If you apply moisturizer immediately, it will dilute the retinol and reduce its effectiveness.
