Vitamin is an antioxidant that helps prevent premature aging by boosting collagen production, which leads to a reduction in the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and age spots. The most effective application of Vitamin E, is...
Quin-what? Quinoa (keen-wah). You know, that itty-bitty grain that has become a staple in the kitchens of foodies, health nuts and gluten-free diet followers galore. Here’s the whole scoop on this nutrient rich grain:
It all started…3-4 THOUSAND years ago when the Incas first discovered quinoa. The Incas believed that it increased the stamina, energy and strength of their warriors and therefore it was dubbed “gold of the Incas”. No wonder
Duller skin, uneven skin tone, enlarged pores, more pronounced wrinkles and sagging skin around the neck. So this is 40.
Your 40’s are the years of perimenopause- the period of time leading up to menopause marked by a decline in estrogen levels. This hormonal shift can often lead to thinner skin and the loss of elasticity, which are big contributors to the more noticeable signs of aging that you will most likely begin to see in your 40’s. A proactive approach to caring for your skin throughput this decade can help to protect your skin from further damage and offset the effects of your body’s changing hormones. Here is everything you need to know about caring for your skin in your 40’s:
Although most signs of aging probably won't kick in until your 30’s, its never too early to start getting into the habits that will help you preserve your youth as long as possible. Good skin-care habits in your 20’s are the perfect foundation for maintaining your youthful glow throughout the decades that follow. Here is what you need to know about skin-care in your 20’s:
Adopt a natural skincare regimen and stick to it
A proper skin-care routine is the foundation for healthy, glowing skin. Start with a gentle cleanser, which removes dirt, oils and impurities from pores and prevents them from getting clogged. Next, restore your skin’s natural ph balance by spritzing a hydrating toner all over your freshly cleansed face. After giving your toner a few seconds to dry, slather a...
In your 20’s you could easily get away with falling asleep with a face full of makeup or spending the day at the beach sans sunscreen. Unfortunately, at some point we all must begrudgingly bid adieu to that decade of our lives. In your 30’s, you’ll most likely start to see noticeable signs of aging such as fine lines, wrinkles and uneven skin tone. This is the perfect time to revamp your skin-care routine to help slow the signs of aging. Here is what you need to know about skin-care in your 30’s:
Exfoliation is Essential
Beginning in your 30’s, cell turnover and metabolism starts to slow down, causing your skin to look dull and aged. Fret not, my dears. The answer to this worrisome dilemma is simple: just exfoliate! Topical exfoliation (such as a scrub) helps stimulate cell turnover by sloughing away dead skin cells. Many aestheticians also recommend that in addition to topical exfoliation, exfoliate at a deeper level once you hit the big 3-0. This can be done by using an...
Protecting your skin against the signs of aging isn’t rocket science, but it does require the cultivation of a few good habits. Aside from the obvious ones (drink tons of water, avoid getting too much sun and don’t smoke), there are two simply non-negotiable habits we suggest you adopt in order to preserve your youthful glow.
The first? A solid skin-care routine consisting of the highest quality, natural skincare products. And by “natural”, we are not referring to brands that are positioned as natural. What we are referring to are truly natural (and preferably organic) brands that don’t use harmful chemicals such as propylene glycol, parabens, sodium lauryl sulfate and synthetic fragrances. Your daily skin care arsenal should ideally consist of a gentle cleanser, a toner, a light moisturizer and highly effective wrinkle cream (our scar cream doubles as a wrinkle cream and significantly reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines).
The Second? A diet chocked full of...
A conscientious skin care routine means treating yourself to natural, nourishing products. For those of us attempting to reduce the visibility of a hard-earned scar or unanticipated stretch mark, it’s important to find a product that fulfills its promise of banishing the blemish while also supporting the overall health of our skin. What many of us don’t know is that potentially harmful chemical compounds hide in the inactive ingredients in many mainstream products.
Producers of cosmetics are proud to promote their primary active ingredients, but what about the rest of the stuff listed on the back of the box? Inactive ingredients are often used to give skin care products a longer shelf life or a better consistency, but these synthetics are in no way “natural.”
“Because your skin is porous, you actually absorb 60 to 80 percent of what you put on it, depending on the compound,” said Pieter Oosthuizen, creator of CELSUS Bio-Intelligence Scar Cream. “That means you shouldn’t put anything onto your skin that you wouldn’t put into your mouth.”
