5 Ways to Maximize Sunblock Protection 500 333 Facercise

5 Ways to Maximize Sunblock Protection

facial exercisesIt’s surprising how many people do facial exercises and use pricey skin care products but don’t wear sunscreen. The sun’s dangerous ultraviolet (UV) rays can cause damage that is often beyond repair. Too much sun exposure leads to premature aging, fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and skin cancer.

While the best way to avoid the aging effects of sun damage is to avoid exposure altogether, it’s not a realistic game plan. A powerful sunscreen, such as our Protective Sunblock SPF 30, must be your weapon of choice.

Read on for some tips to protect your skin from damaging UV rays.

1. Apply SPF Sunscreen Every Day

Whether you live in sunny southern California or rainy Seattle, daily sunscreen is a mandatory. Use a minimum of SPF 30 and wear it every single day, rain, snow or shine. If you are outside for extended periods of time (more than 75 minutes), generously re-apply your sunscreen several times.

2. Don’t Wait Until You’re Outside

It takes a least 20 minutes for your skin to properly absorb sunscreen and be completely protected. For best results, apply sunscreen a minimum of 20 minutes prior to exposure and before you get dressed. If you apply it with your clothes on, chances are you will miss critical areas.

3. Apply Generously

The old adage “less is more” does not apply when it comes to sunscreen. Since people are of all different sizes, there is no generic amount of sunscreen that works for everyone. The only rule that stands is that you can never apply too much. Use enough to provide even coverage all over your body—and then some. Our Protective Sunblock SPF 30 is lightweight and non-comedogenic so it won’t clog pores or cause breakouts no matter how much you use.

4. Don’t Count on Makeup

Many people make the mistake of using moisturizer or foundation with SPF in lieu of sunscreen. You can definitely use both for added protection, but never skip sunscreen altogether. These products must be used in conjunction with sunscreen to provide proper coverage.

5. Keep it Fresh

Sunscreens do expire, so don’t hoard old bottles. Their active ingredients lose strength over time, rendering them ineffective. Bottles can also get contaminated when kept for too long. Buy new bottles every season to make sure your sunscreen is working.

5 Amazing Benefits of Facial Exercises 500 333 Facercise

5 Amazing Benefits of Facial Exercises

facial exercisesFacial exercises are the best way to look and feel our very best naturally. They eliminate the need to get fillers or go under the knife to maintain a youthful look. Regular practice of my Facercise program will help you achieve natural looking results that trump any surgical procedure. Plus, there are no risks, side effects or downtime associated with a facial exercises regimen.

Just like the muscles in our body start to lose elasticity as we age, so do those in our face, which results in a sagging appearance. Facial exercises firm up the muscles that support the skin so that it looks more toned and lifted. People of all ages can benefit from Facercise, whether to delay the signs of aging or to resculpt areas, such as a double chin or long nose.

Read on for the top 5 benefits of a consistent Facercise regimen.

1. Facial Exercises Stimulate Blood Circulation

This provides nutrition to the cells of the outer layers of the epidermis, resulting in improved skin tone and color. Boosting circulation can also help combat the development of fine lines and wrinkles by providing the cells and blood with more oxygen.

2. A Brighter Complexion

Exercising your face can brighten up your complexion by giving you a nice glow while improving the overall texture of your skin. By delivering more oxygen to skin cells, old damaged cells are eliminated and the epidermis is better able to absorb moisture.

3. Facercise Give You a Natural Lift

Facial exercises boost collagen and elastic production, which results in a more lifted appearance. These two essential proteins help maintain the elasticity of skin, soften the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines and smooth those sunken or sagging areas, such as droopy eyelids, saggy jowls and folds in the cheeks.

4. Detoxification

Facial exercises stimulate the lymphatic system, which helps flush the toxins, dirt and bacteria from skin and boosts your metabolism.

5. Relief From TMJ

Many studies show that facial exercises can relax the muscles that are linked to Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction (TMJ), a disorder that causes pain and compromised movement of the joint and muscles surrounding the jaw. Exercising the facial muscles will stretch, strengthen and relax out overworked muscles and joints, resulting in decreased pain.

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.

Summer Produce for Glowing Skin 500 333 Facercise

Summer Produce for Glowing Skin

facial exercisesSummer is almost here! That means lots of produce that can improve your skin and complement results from face exercises. Our diets impact our bodies at the cellular level, so when you’re not consuming enough healthy food, it shows on your skin.

Fruits and veggies can protect your skin from sun damage, boost collagen production and give it a healthy glow. If you want to achieve that healthy, youthful glow, plan to eat lots of antioxidant-rich summer produce.

Watermelon

This juicy fruit is approximately 90 percent water, making it intensely hydrating. Watermelon is rich in vitamin C, which boosts collagen production, as well as thiamin and vitamin B6. It also contains one of the highest levels of lycopene than any other food, which helps fight free radical damage.

Berries

Fresh strawberries, raspberries, blueberries and raspberries are packed with antioxidants that combat free radical damage and the sun’s dangerous rays. They’re also rich in fiber, which helps fill you up and promotes healthy digestion.

Zucchini

At only 20 calories per eight ounce serving, zucchini is a nutritional powerhouse. This unique veggie has a high water content and is rich in vitamins A and C, as well as manganese, a nutrient essential to producing choline, the amino acid that stimulates collagen production.

Cantaloupe

This sweet melon is another excellent source of vitamins A and C, as well as E, K and the B vitamins, which help replenish and revitalize skin. It’s also packed with folic acid, which assists with skin cell regeneration.

Citrus Fruit

In general, citrus fruits provide lots of vitamin C as well as other important nutrients and antioxidants, so load up on lemons, limes, grapefruit and oranges.

Eat these antioxidant-rich fruits and veggies and do face exercises daily to keep that youthful glow all summer long.

3 Hacks for Healthy Skin 500 333 Facercise

3 Hacks for Healthy Skin

facial exercisesWhile each skin type requires different care, there are standard practices such as wearing sunscreen and doing facial exercises that work across the board. However, it’s important to go beyond skin care products and think about your system as a whole. You need to focus just as much on how you take care of your insides as you do your skin’s outer layer. For healthy, happy skin, it’s important to address diet and exercise. Our skin is our body’s largest organ, so what you do and eat directly affects the way you look.

1. Adequate Hydration

Dehydration makes fine lines and wrinkles more prominent while giving the skin a dull, crepey appearance. To achieve glowing, healthy looking skin, you need to drink adequate amounts of water and tea. Only drink alcohol in moderation and consume a glass of water in between each drink—and try not to have more than one libation if possible. Proper hydration will even out your skin tone and result in a smoother, more radiant appearance.

2. Proper Nutrition

A balanced, antioxidant-rich diet is essential to healthy, well-nourished skin. Make sure to consume good amounts of healthy fats, such as omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. They help protect your skin’s moisture barrier, which thins as we age. This keeps toxins out while allowing water and important nutrients to enter cell membranes. The result is firmer, plumper looking skin. Strive to eat lots of fresh produce, which contains collagen-boosting vitamins such as A and C as well as other potent antioxidants.

3. Exercise

Working out doesn’t just benefit our waistline, it helps us achieve healthier, more radiant skin. Exercise boosts circulation, which nourishes our skin cells and keeps them vital. Increased blood flow provides oxygen to our cells, while helping to flush toxins and cellular debris away from the skin. Working out also reduces stress, which can cause breakouts and the squinting that results in wrinkles and creases.

5 Dietary Tips for Beautiful Skin 500 333 Facercise

5 Dietary Tips for Beautiful Skin

facial exercisesWhile facial exercises and skin care products keep your skin looking good from the outside, what you put inside your body can have just as much impact. It’s essential to maintain a healthy diet by eating antioxidant-rich food and avoiding certain dietary triggers. Read on for tips for perfecting your diet so you can enhance your skin care regimen and look your very best.

1. Go Organic

Choose organic meat, poultry and produce to avoid the growth hormones, steroids, pesticides and antibiotics that most traditionally grown produce contains.

2. Eat as Much Organic Produce as Possible

Produce is a fundamental part of a healthy diet. Eat colorful fruit and vegetables, especially those that contain high levels of antioxidants. For the best balance, try to fit in as much of the color spectrum as possible. Choose more vegetables than fruit, as the latter has a higher sugar content.

3. Cut Back on Dairy

Much research shows a strong correlation between dairy products and skin issues such as acne and aging. This is due to the hormones that make their way into cows’ milk. These hormones cause inflammation, cellular breakdown and increase oil production. Cut back, and when you do partake, opt for organic, hormone-free products. Products such as coconut, almond, oat and cashew milk make excellent dairy alternatives.

4. Reduce Sodium Intake

Too much sodium in your diet causes water retention, making it harder for your lymphatic system to flush away toxins. Excess sodium exacerbates acne as well, as it irritates the pores and impedes the body’s natural removal of toxins.

5. Cut Down on Sugar

Excessive sugar intake leads to hormonal shifts and increased glycation. Glycation occurs when sugars affect fats and proteins abnormally, resulting in the production of harmful molecules called “advanced glycation end products.” These evil entities cause proteins like collagen and elastin to break down and grow stiff, weak and inelastic. The result is sagging skin with more wrinkles and less glow. Avoid this by reducing sugar intake as much as possible.

Follow these tips to enhance the results of your regimen of skin care products and facial exercises. It’s okay to treat yourself every now and then, just be sure to do so in moderation.

5 Mistakes That Age You 500 333 Facercise

5 Mistakes That Age You

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 the most common mistakes that 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. This process, known as glycation, causes the fibers to become inflexible and pull at the skin. The result is 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. Not Removing 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 reparation. 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 also includes sleeping on a silk or copper-infused pillowcase to help keep hair and skin smooth.

5. Eliminating Fats

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.

Stop making these mistakes and focus on making your skin its healthiest best. Click through for information about Facercise, our life changing system of facial exercises.

4 Skin Care Blunders 500 333 Facercise

4 Skin Care Blunders

facial exercisesWhile 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.

5 Benefits of Masking 500 333 Facercise

5 Benefits of Masking

facial exercisesMasking is an excellent complement to your skin care routine and facial exercises. Masks have had a resurgence in popularity recently—just take a look at Instagram. Everyone from pre-teens and stay-at-home moms to celebrities and CEOs post images of themselves rocking masks on social media. The benefits of masking can be immediate and long-lasting, especially when you choose the right type. Our favorite is Face Lift to Go, which imparts a multitude of benefits.

Read on to learn about five benefits of masking.

1. Deep Cleansing

Masks can deep cleanse and draw out toxins and impurities that clog pores and cause blemishes. A good mask can also speed up recovery from a breakout and prevent future ones. Face Lift to Go does all this while improving and refining the appearance of pores.

2. Hydration

Dehydrated skin benefits immensely from a moisturizing mask. The hydration provided by a moisture mask smooths out the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, while plumping up skin cells. Skin also feels softer and refreshed after using a moisture-rich mask.

3. Exfoliation

Exfoliation is key for eliminating the dead skin cells that cause acne breakouts and dull skin. Face Lift to Go exfoliates with natural enzymes to slough the excess cells and impart a beautiful, rosy glow.

4. Product Absorption

Regular masking promotes better absorption of skin products so that their benefits are maximized.

5. Therapeutic Benefits

Masking is like therapy—it gives you the chance to relax and meditate. It’s the perfect form of self-care! Make the most of the experience so you can maximize both the physical and mental benefits. Take a bath, light some candles, apply a mask and zone out. Make a date with yourself to mask at least once a week!

6 Skin Care Tips for Transitioning to Fall 500 750 Facercise

6 Skin Care Tips for Transitioning to Fall

facial exercisesWhile Fall brings relief from the hot summer sun, it’s not time slow down on daily sunscreen, skin care and facial exercises. Some of the humidity and moisture may dissipate this time of year, which means we need to compensate and adjust our skin care regimes. Below are some tips to help you transition your routine during this seasonal change so you can maintain happy skin and a youthful glow.

1. Start the Season with a Facial

Slough dead skin cells from the summer with an in-spa facial to start the season right. This will prep your skin for cooler and possibly harsher weather. Plus, it gives you time to relax and pamper yourself. If you can’t make it to the spa, do a Face Lift to Go at home.

2. Incorporate Vitamin C

Now is an ideal time to add vitamin C into your routine, both with supplements and skin care products. Brighten up your skin with a rich vitamin C serum such as my Hi-Density Vitamin C serum. It will help remove sun spots and hyperpigmentation that developed during the summer months. Apply it to your face, neck, décolletage and hands every morning.

3. Retinol

At night, shed dead skin cells and prevent the signs of aging with retinol, a potent derivative of vitamin A. This will help undo some of the signs of aging, even out skin tone and impart a healthy glow. My Retinol Skin Conditioner is an excellent choice.

4. Change Cleansers

When the climate changes, you may want to switch to a richer, creamier cleanser such as my Creamy Milk Cleanser. It is milder on your skin so that you avoid the irritation that might be caused by a harsher cleanser or one with exfoliant properties.

5. Use a Richer Moisturizer

As the air becomes cooler and drier, you may need to use a richer moisturizer to enhance the skin’s protective barrier. It’s a good time to opt for a product like my Ultra Hyaluronic Cream as it attracts significant moisture to your skin. Studies show it can increase moisture up to 300 percent!

6. Protect Your Lips

Often times, we experience dry, chapped lips due to colder weather. Protect your skin with a hydrating lip balm with SPF during the day—it serves as an excellent base for your lipstick or lip gloss. At night, apply vitamin E oil to rehydrate and combat free radical damage.
