4 Amazing Sources of Vitamin C 500 325 Facercise

4 Amazing 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 Vitamin C Complex 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 Vitamin C Complex 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 Vitamin C Complex 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 Supplements

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 Vitamin C Complex Serum and increasing vitamin C intake. Click here to learn more about this incredible vitamin C serum.

6 Summer Skincare Tips 500 333 Facercise

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 may be spending more time outdoors, wearing less clothes and smack in the middle of 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.

Your Skin on Antioxidants 500 270 Facercise

Your Skin on Antioxidants

vitamin C serumAntioxidants play a critical role in fighting the signs of aging caused by free radical oxidation. Free radicals are formed by damage to the environment from toxins, pollution, tobacco and the sun. These scavengers cause permanent cell deterioration and reduce elasticity, which results in the signs of aging. The dirty work of free radicals show up in the form of fine lines and wrinkles, dullness, undereye circles and sagging skin.

The Power of Antioxidants

Antioxidants are composed of vitamins and minerals. They have the power to neutralize free radicals and help prevent and even reverse some of their damage. Antioxidants that you can consume and use topically also reduce and soothe inflammation. When skin is inflamed, the reparative process is impeded. The result is acne, sun spots, hyperpigmentation and the cellular damage that causes fine lines and wrinkles.

Vitamin C

Many fruits, vegetables and food items are rich in antioxidants and now they’re often infused into skincare products, such as our Vitamin C Complex Serum. They can be water- or lipid-soluble or both. Skincare products containing antioxidants are as essential as sunscreen to your daily regimen. They help form a barrier that protects your skin from damage from the sun’s dangerous UV rays and other environmental pollutants that cause oxidative stress. Products like Vitamin C Complex Serum prevent and even reverse the damage free radicals cause.

Vitamin C is a critical antioxidant because it can actually help prevent sunburn and photo-aging. We tell our clients to layer High Density C Serum under their sunscreen for added protection. An added benefit is that it boosts production of collagen, the protein responsible for skin’s elasticity. Regular use of vitamin C serum can fade dark spots, boost firmness and give skin a rosy glow.

Vitamin A

Vitamin A contains retinoids, which help improve the appearance of acne, wrinkles, brown spots and hyperpigmentation, while stimulating cellular turnover. Products containing vitamin A boost collagen production and slough away dead skin cells that clog pores and cause inflammation. Vitamin A also promotes wound healing and the production of new blood vessels.

Vitamin E

Vitamin E is another excellent antioxidant to incorporate into your skincare regimen. It protects against sun damage, hydrates and soothes dry skin, discourages wrinkles and may help heal wounds and scars. Studies show that when vitamin C and E are used together, they provide even greater protection from UV rays and reduce the formation of sunburn cells. Our Nourishing E Oil is an excellent choice for your anti-aging routine.

5 Ways That Vitamin C Fights Aging 500 333 Facercise

5 Ways That Vitamin C Fights Aging

facial exercisesI’ve touted the benefits of vitamin C to clients who do my facial exercises for years! It’s a natural weapon for maintaining healthy, youthful looking skin and a strong immune system. Also known as ascorbic acid, vitamin C is a potent antioxidant that helps the body form connective tissue and fight off disease. People of all ages should incorporate it into their skin care routines.

Read on to discover five ways vitamin C helps us combat the effects and signs of aging.

1. Re-Hydrates

No matter what time of year, vitamin C addresses dry, flaky and itchy skin. It quenches thirsty cells and helps them differentiate and mature normally.

2. Reduces Discoloration

Regular use of a vitamin C serum like my Vitamin C Complex Serum helps you achieve a more uniform skin tone. It reverses the appearance of sun spots and hyperpigmentation, as well as redness.

3. Brightens Skin

Vitamin C brightens and revives dull skin and improves your complexion. Consistent use of a vitamin C serum promises a more youthful glow.

4. Fights Damage

Vitamin C helps stop sun and free radical damage in its tracks. The sun’s dangerous UV rays wreak serious havoc while free radicals scavenge the skin, causing the formation of dark spots and collagen breakdown. Always incorporate a vitamin C product in addition to sunscreen.

5. Boosts Collagen Production

Collagen is a protein that is responsible for skin’s elasticity. As we age, skin loses its suppleness and thins. Vitamin C products stimulate collagen production, which promotes elasticity and thickens the skin. This significantly reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles—and therefore diminishes demand for risky facial injections!

6. Combats Inflammation

Vitamin C has been shown to reduce inflammation, which benefits our skin and overall health. This also expedites the body and skin’s healing processes.

5 Benefits of Vitamin C Complex Serum

facial exercisesOur Vitamin C Complex Serum is a fountain of youth! Vitamin C is one of the most potent antioxidants for anti-aging and beautiful skin. When applied topically, it helps protect skin from the sun’s harsh ultraviolet (UV) rays and other environmental stressors. What sets our vitamin C serum apart from others is its powerful ingredient, magnesium ascorbyl phosphate, the most stable and effective form of this antioxidant.

Read on to discover the benefits of Vitamin C Complex Serum.

1. Vitamin C Serum Fights Hyperpigmentation

Vitamin C helps reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation and “age spots” while protecting against future discoloration. It also helps soothe inflammation, irritation and redness.

2. Protection Against Free Radicals

Vitamin C protects the skin from damage caused by free radicals, pollution and other environmental stressors. Studies show that regular use of a topical vitamin C neutralizes damage and may reverse its appearance.

3. More Refined Pores

Topically applied vitamin C minimizes the appearance of large pores so that they look more refined. It also improves skin texture so that it looks and feels smoother and more even.

4. Boosted Collagen Production

Collagen is a protein responsible for skin’s firmness and elasticity. When collagen breaks down, it causes lines, wrinkles, larger pores and thinner, sagging skin. Vitamin C Complex Serum boosts collagen production to fight wrinkles, thicken skin, improve firmness and reduce sagging.

5. Vitamin C Brightens Skin

Dull skin be gone! Regular use of a serum rich in vitamin C brightens skin and imparts a healthy glow. It can even help lighten undereye circles. Many of our clients use it on their hands, neck, decolletage, arms and legs too!

5 Benefits of Vitamin C Serum 1024 683 Facercise

5 Benefits of Vitamin C Serum

vitamin C serumOne of the best anti-aging ingredients you can have in your anti-aging arsenal is vitamin C. It’s a potent antioxidant with a variety of benefits that set it apart from the rest. When used topically with a vitamin C serum, it offers unparalleled anti-aging benefits. When we created our Vitamin C Complex serum, we chose the most effective and stable form of vitamin C, magnesium ascorbyl phosphate. It’s the ultimate free radical scavenger! Regular use of this A-list antioxidant, coupled with daily facial exercises, will change your skin and your life!

Here are five incredible anti-aging benefits of Vitamin C Complex Serum.

1. It Protects the Skin

Vitamin C protects the skin against the environment and free radical damage like nothing else. It has been shown to neutralize and even reverse the appearance of damage caused by the sun’s dangerous UV rays, pollution and free radicals.

2. Vitamin C Serum Boosts Collagen Production

Collagen is a structural protein that gives skin its plumpness and elasticity. When it breaks down, it results in fines lines, wrinkles, loss of suppleness and sagging skin. Skin also becomes thinner when collagen diminishes. Topical application of vitamin C boosts collagen production to restore firmness, fight wrinkles and thicken skin.

3. Brighter Skin

Topical vitamin C brightens the complexion, revives dull skin and imparts radiance. It acts like a natural bleaching agent and can even improve those dreaded under eye circles. When used regularly, it results in a more even skin tone and youthful glow. TIP: Apply it all over your body, not just your face!

4. Vitamin C Combats Hyperpigmentation

Vitamin C can lighten discoloration such as sun spots, hyperpigmentation and melasma. It also protects against future sun and free radical damage, while treating redness and irritation.

5. Pores Look Better

Vitamin C Complex Serum improves skin texture and reduces the appearance of large pores, a condition caused when collagen breaks down. Since it thickens the skin and promotes collagen production, it also helps pores appear smaller and more refined.

6 Ways to Combat Hyperpigmentation 500 333 Facercise

6 Ways to Combat Hyperpigmentation

facial exercisesWhile the sun equals fun, the damage it does to our skin is no picnic. Its powerful UV rays cause everything from sunburns and wrinkles to melanoma and hyperpigmentation. The dark spots known as hyperpigmentation are very difficult to remove and can show up on every exposed body part. Their appearance can be intensified by skin irritation, pregnancy hormones, endocrine diseases, insulin resistance and various medications including chemotherapy drugs.

If avoiding the sun altogether isn’t an option, read on to learn how to combat hyperpigmentation and maintain the results of facial exercises.

1. Block the Sun

There’s a reason we mention sunblock in nearly every post—it’s so important to protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays. Wear sunblock every single day on each part of your body that’s exposed. Re-apply several times per day, especially if you’re engaging in outdoor activities. Wear SPF clothing, sunglasses and a hat for ultimate protection.

2. Keep Cool

Melanin activity increases when your body overheats, which can lead to dark spots forming. If you get overheated or exercise outside, immediately cool your skin down with a wet cloth or ice pack.

3. Lighten Up

Go on the offensive with a lightening product like our gentle yet effective Brightening Cream. If you’re considering using a hydroquinone product, be sure to speak to your dermatologist first. Sometimes hydroquinone can exacerbate sun spots and worsen their appearance.

4. Retinol

Retinol products exfoliate and eliminate dead, discolored skin cells that appear as sun spots. They also boost collagen production, which helps fight free radical scavengers.

5. Vitamin C Serum

Layer a vitamin C product like our High Density C Serum to brighten up skin and help protect against sun damage.

6. Eat for Protection

Consume a diet of antioxidant-rich foods that act as an internal sunscreen. Lycopene and beta-carotene are two antioxidants that provide powerful protection. Some great sources include grapefruit, tomatoes, watermelon, papaya, carrots, spinach, sweet potatoes and squash.

Summer Skincare Essentials 500 333 Facercise

Summer Skincare Essentials

facial exercisesNow that summer is here, you’ve got to up your skin care game and make protection a priority. You won’t maximize the benefits of facial exercises if you bask in the sun without sunblock and commit other summertime sins. Read on to learn about summer skin essentials that combat sun damage while imparting a youthful glow.

Sunblock

Sunblock is mandatory all year long, rain or shine. The sun’s ultraviolet rays and free radicals work together to wreak havoc on our skin. This damage shows up in the form of wrinkles, sun sports, hyperpigmentation and melanoma. The sun also breaks down collagen, which is essential for skin elasticity and firmness. Apply Protective Sunblock SPF 30 before you step foot outside. If you wear a tinted moisturizer with SPF, that alone won’t cut it. Apply sunscreen underneath it to maximize protection.

Lip Protection

Your lips are super delicate, making them extremely susceptible to sun damage. Be sure to wear a protective balm with SPF 15 or more every day. Re-apply it through the day. If you wear lipstick or gloss, apply balm first so it can act as a primer.

Spritz

Our skin gets parched this time of year, making skin dull and amplifying the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Carry a mist like our Heavy Water Spritz to replenish moisture throughout the day. It will refresh your makeup and give your skin a dewy appearance.

Brighten Up

A powerful potent vitamin C Serum like our High Density C Serum will brighten your skin while helping protect against sun and oxidative damage. Vitamin C also boosts collagen production! Try to eat produce rich with this antioxidant as well—some excellent sources are oranges, kiwis, mangoes, papaya, pineapple, berries and watermelon.

Wear Shades

Wear sunglasses with UV protection to protect your eyes and the delicate area surrounding them. Polarized lens do not protect your eyes from the sun, so be sure you purchase lenses with “UV protection” on the label.  Wearing sunglasses also prevents the squinting that causes fine lines and crow’s feet.

Incorporate these summer skincare essentials into your routine to ward off hyperpigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles and sagging. Click through to learn about the benefits of facial exercises.
