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.

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.

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.

Top 3 Vitamin C Sources 500 333 Facercise

Top 3 Vitamin C Sources

facial exercisesVitamin C and facial exercises are unrivaled for developing brighter, firmer and more resilient skin. Exposure to harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays, free radicals and pollutants, coupled with aging, decreases our skin’s vitamin C levels. This leads to fine lines, wrinkles, age spots and hyperpigmentation. The good news is, we can replenish our vitamin C levels by incorporating it into our diet and with topical application. Do both and you’ll be boost immunity, combat free radical damage and reverse some of the effects of aging over time.

Below are three excellent sources of vitamin C to work into your anti-aging skincare regimen. Combine them with a consistent routine of facial exercises and you will see excellent results in a matter of weeks, if not days.

1. Fruit

One of the best food groups to get your vitamin C from is fruit. Produce is exceptionally rich in vitamin C and easy to incorporate into your diet. While we typically reach for citrus when we think of vitamin C, such as oranges, grapefruit, limes and lemons, many other fruits have even higher levels of this potent nutrient. One eight-ounce serving of papaya contains 88.3 mg of vitamin C, while mango provides 122.3 mg. Kiwi is also loaded with vitamin C, with around 70 mg per medium-sized fruit, as well as potassium and copper. Strawberries and pineapple are also excellent sources.

2. Veggies

Surprisingly, some of the best sources of vitamin C are chili peppers! One cup of chopped chili peppers delivers 215 mg of vitamin C and boasts capsaicin, which has been shown to boost metabolism and yields significant anti-inflammatory properties. Both red and green bell peppers also deliver your RDA of vitamin C and more, while providing fiber to your diet. Other good vegetable sources include kale, cauliflower, broccoli, Brussels sprouts and spinach.

3. Vitamin C Complex Serum

My antioxidant-rich Vitamin C Complex Serum is the perfect topical agent for brightening your skin and protecting against harmful UV rays. This powerful serum reduces the appearance of hyperpigmentation and age spots while imparting a youthful-looking glow. Apply it religiously to your face, neck, decolletage, hands, arms and legs.

Most people start seeing a difference in their skin after two to four weeks of increasing their vitamin C intake and using our High Density C Serum. Visit this link for more information about our proprietary system of facial exercises and incredible skincare products.

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

5 Ways to Treat Age Spots 500 308 Facercise

5 Ways to Treat Age Spots

sun spotsMany of us suffer from what are called “age spots” and hyperpigmentation. This unsightly discoloration is caused by the sun’s powerful UV rays and other environmental stressors or can simply be a side effect of aging. Whatever the cause, the result can do a number on our confidence. The good news is, you can fade them and sometimes even eliminate them altogether.

While procedures like chemical peels and laser therapy can help, they can be costly, require downtime and cause side effects. Just like facial exercises provide a natural, non-surgical way to combat other signs of aging, there are non-invasive methods for diminishing age spots. Read on to discover our favorite techniques.

Lightening Creams and Lotions

Many products lighten and fade age spots over time. Apply one religiously and you will most likely see results. Our Brightening Cream is a customer favorite because it noticeably lightens and brightens the skin yet is extremely gentle. Many who try more aggressive products containing hydroquinone suffer severe irritation and experience a worsening of the condition.

Vitamin C

When vitamin C is consumed internally and applied externally, it yields significant lightening results. It’s a potent antioxidant that reduces the number of sun damaged cells and can even reverse age-related damage. Our Vitamin C Complex Serum repairs UV damage while brightening the skin and imparting a youthful glow. Apply it all over the face, neck, décolletage, hands and wherever else you want to fade discoloration. Take an Ester-C supplement every day to boost the brightening process.

Retinol Skin Conditioner

Our Retinol Skin Conditioner is another powerful tool for combating age spots and hyperpigmentation. It gently exfoliates the skin, removing discolored cells that form sun spots while fighting free radical damage. It also promotes collagen and elastin production, which helps maintain skin’s elasticity and firmness.

Keep Cool

Whenever you’re overheated, melanin activity is stimulated, which leads to the formulation of spots. If you feel hot after exercising or spending time outdoors, immediately apply a cool cloth or ice pack to bring down your skin temperature.

Eat Right

Consume foods rich in vitamin C and antioxidants such as beta-carotene and lycopene. These help the skin fight sun damage from the inside out and reduce inflammation. Eat lots of colorful produce such as tomatoes, carrots, sweet potatoes, squash, watermelon, grapefruit and green leafy veggies such as kale, spinach and broccoli.

If you ever have a spot that changes in size or color, bleeds, itches or turns red, see a board-certified dermatologist for a skin exam. Some forms of skin cancer, including melanoma, are often mistaken for age spots.

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.

Top 10 Anti-Aging Habits 500 206 Facercise

Top 10 Anti-Aging Habits

facial exercisesGood habits are everything when it comes to looking and feeling your very best. Many studies show that how you stave off the signs of aging isn’t entirely dependent on genetics. In fact, lifestyle, environment and our skincare regimen play a significant role. From wearing sunscreen and getting facials to doing facial exercises every day, there are habits to master that will help prevent the signs of aging while imparting a beautiful glow.

Incorporate some of the habits below to maintain your youthful good looks.

Hydrate Properly

Drink plenty of water and green tea to hydrate your skin from the inside out. This helps maintain a dewy glow and can plump up the fines lines dehydration causes.

Live a Clean Lifestyle

Eat a healthy, antioxidant-rich die. Choose lean protein, whole grains and lots of colorful fruits and veggies. If you must drink alcohol, do so moderately.

Wear Sunscreen

Protect your skin from exposure to the sun’s harsh UV rays that cause wrinkles, deplete collagen stores and cause the formation of sun spots and hyperpigmentation. Apply sunblock to your skin every single day, no matter what the weather is like.

Rock Sunglasses

Sunglasses help prevent the squinting that leads to Crow’s feet while shielding the fragile skin from the sun’s dangerous rays. For next level protection, opt for lenses with a UV400 protection label, which can block 100 percent of UVA and UVB rays.

Incorporate Vitamin C

Consume a vitamin C-rich diet and apply a serum like our Vitamin C Complex Serum to combat damage from the sun and other environmental stressors.

Don’t Smoke

Smoking ages skin fast and ruthlessly. It dulls the complexion, clogs pores and depletes the oxygen supply. It causes deep vertical lines around the mouth and Crow’s feet. Smoking also breaks down collagen, which gives skin its elasticity and slows healing. It’s one of the worst things you can do to your skin.

Don’t Frown

Avoids frowning, squinting and making other facial movements that cause fine lines and wrinkles to form. When you frown repetitively, it causes angry looking creases like the dreaded brow furrow, also known as the “Elevens.”

Minimize Stress

Stress takes a serious toll on your skin. Make it a point to engage in activities that minimize its impact. Some excellent options include working out, yoga or Pilates, meditation, reading or getting a massage.

Sleep on Your Back

When you sleep on your stomach or your side, it causes deep folds and wrinkles on your face, neck and decolletage.  Sleep on our back to prevent these lines and to promote a healthy spine.

Do Facial Exercises

Facercise smooths wrinkles and promotes collagen production while firming and lifting the skin. Facial exercises also boost circulation, which imparts a youthful glow.

Work Out

Physical exercise is essential to promote better health and skin. It detoxifies our bodies, reduces stress, helps build muscle mass and boosts circulation, which facilitates the delivery of oxygen to our cells.

hyperpigmentation
5 Ways to Reduce Hyperpigmentation 500 332 Facercise

5 Ways to Reduce Hyperpigmentation

hyperpigmentationOne of the unsightly effects of sun damage is the hyperpigmentation and sun spots it often leaves behind. The sun’s ultraviolet rays and other environmental stressors like free radicals are fierce scavengers that cause discoloration! Aging can play a role as well. Fortunately, this frustrating condition is not something we have to live with. Just like how facial exercises offer a nonsurgical alternative to preventing and smoothing wrinkles, there are ways to naturally improve discoloration.

Read on for tips on fading hyperpigmentation and sun spots so you feel more comfortable in your skin.\

1. Retinol Products

Products like Retinol Skin Conditioner are ideal for reducing the appearance of hyperpigmentation. This product is a best-seller because it exfoliates the skin gently and removes the discolored cells that cause sun spots and discoloration. Unlike other harsh retinoid products, Retinol Skin Conditioner does this without causing redness and irritation. Regular use also boosts collagen production, which helps maintain the skin’s flexibility and elasticity.

2. Vitamin C Serum

Vitamin C is an antioxidant that helps lighten and brighten skin by decreasing the number of sun-damaged skin cells. It also imparts a healthy glow and stimulates collagen production. Our High Density C Serum is an excellent choice for brightening your complexion while fading hyperpigmentation. For optimum results, apply to your face and all areas of your body that are exposed to the sun.

3. Eat an Antioxidant-Rich Diet

Another way to fight off hyperpigmentation is to eat a diet packed with antioxidants like vitamin C, beta-carotene and lycopene. These goods combat damage from the sun and free radicals, while reducing inflammation. Many clients also take an Ester-C supplement as well.

4. Brightening Cream

Consistent use of products like our Brightening Cream helps fade hyperpigmentation. If you have sensitive skin, avoid aggressive products with hydroquinone. They can cause irritation and even darken spots that you’re trying to lighten.

5. Avoid Overheating

Avoid getting overheated. When skin temperature rises this stimulates melanin, which leads to the formulation of darkened skin cells. If you’re outside in summer heat or feel hot after working out, apply a cool compress to your skin to bring its temperature down.

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.
