Exceptional Eyes!!

6 Jun

Your eyes are the first place that we show aging.  So one of the first things that we need to make sure is that we have a Fabulous eye cream!  One of the main things about aging is hydration.  If your skin isn’t hydrated watch the wrinkles appear.  So,  number one in an eye cream is make sure that it is very hydrating.  I know that for me you should probably start using an eye cream once you graduate high school.  I KNOW I KNOW  crazy but true.  I thought I was super young and I was and then I was walking down the mall one day and one of the kiosk ladies asked me do you want to know how you can get rid of those eye wrinkles and I was APPAULED  I do not have eye wrinkles.  But I went home and sure enough they had crept up on me.  The sad part is I had a FABULOUS eye cream in my make up bag I just wasn’t consistently using it.  So moral of the story start using it so you don’t have to worry about them coming for years.  Great thing though they dissappeared so even better news people you can reverse the hands of father time!!  A great eye cream can have vitamin c, collagen producing peptides.  You can also look for an eye cream that brightens to help if you have light circles.

Anti-Aging Eye Creams For Wrinkles

  • Wrinkles and fine lines around the eye area are always associated with aging;  ingredients in anti-aging eye creams such as caffeine, alcohol, retinol,  alpha-hydroxy acids (AHA), copper peptides and vitamin C are used to tighten  skin and stimulate collagen growth.

Damaging Dark Spots, Freckles, and Acne Scars!

28 Mar

Do you have any of these?  I know I do.  Evening out your skin color can help you look more youthful.  Have you ever seen a child with blotchy skin?  I haven’t they always have that soft supple even skin tone.  I love baby skin so cute and perfect.  As we age our skin becomes blotchy, red, acne, brown spots none of them are very good.  But you can get lightening creams.  Some are more harsh than others and some of them work and some don’t.  Personally I want something that will work but won’t ruin my good skin.  I have seen some creams that you can only put them on the brown spots and if you don’t it will lighten the good skin.  Also some will only lighten them and if you stop using the cream they will just come back.  When you get a great lightening cream most of them will be sensetive to light and the air.  So if you get a cream or serum that is a good one it should also be packaged well.  There is no point in buying something that will only lose its potency after the first time you open it and that it just gets worse and worse.  So make sure the packaging is opaque and that it isn’t in a tub so it doesn’t get oxidized.  Gotta love evening out your skin t

Transforming your Tired Skin

27 Mar

I did a previous post on how working out can help your skin be better Click HERE but I was reading another article from a blog about what foods can help your skin change.  How the things we eat really affect how are skin is.  You can help your skin look more youthful, glowing, healthy, clear based off of some of the things you eat.  I know I have heard that berries of course of antioxidants so when you eat them you have more of it in your body, but sweet potatoes also have vitamin A and C that I have talked about earlier that can help your skin look better.  Also Salmon and specific nuts also help give you healthy fatty acids they are like carriers helping carry healthy nutrients to your skin cell membranes.  Healthy oils bring natural moisture to your skin Click Here  So interesting I know eating helps your body, losing weight, feeling better, and having more energy.  But didn’t know why exactly helps your skin.  Definitely their blog article!

Try to Moisturize Corn Flakes!

21 Mar

If you don’t regularly exfoliate dead skin cells stay on the top layer of your skin and blown up they look like corn flakes.  Do you like the picture 🙂  Moisturizing is sooooo important and I talked about that in an earlier post Click Here.  If you don’t exfoliate that layer or the top couple layers when you moisturize it is like trying to moisturize corn flakes 🙂  It won’t hydrate your living skin!  (Great visual huh)  Microdermabrasion is one of the best extra exfoliation treatments I think you can do.  It helps slough off the dead skin layers helps with collagen and you usually see benefits texture, color, and tone of your skin.  It also helps with making your pores look smaller, unclog pores,reduce appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars.  It also increases circulation and lymph flow.  Which most of these things I knew I did not know about the lymph flow.  Based off of this article Aluminum oxide crystals are the best for microdermabrasion they are hard enough to exfoliate really well, but won’t micro tear your skin like other exfoliators.  Click Here  Make sure you are weary of exfoliator masks with fruit pits they crush them and because of their jagged edges can micro tear your skin.  Which can make your skin get infllamed.  Yikes.  There are lots of brands my fav for quality and price is Mary Kay microdermabrasion.  If you break down in price per use it is under $2,00.  AWESOME!!  Most microdermabrasion sets only come with the scrub this is a two step program which has an awesome serum to follow up the scrub!!!  LOVE it! 🙂

Best Anti-Aging Secret!

7 Mar
Retinol products like Retin A, Retinol Palmitate, and Retinal are antioxidants made from vitamin A.  Topical forms made from Vitamin A are considered to be one of the best anti aging products and effective wrinkle fighters.  They help fight free radicals which cause wrinkles.  They also help with collagen and cell growth which can help with your skin elasticity.  Retin A is a little more extreme and has more side effects your skin can become red and irritated and your skin peels.  You also need to  watch sun exposure after using it because you can have sensitivity to light.
There are a lot of Products that have retinol in them quality and price Vary a lot.  You can get them over the counter and prescription.  I personally don’t think I want to deal with the the problems of peeling skin I would rather use more products or make sure I do it more often than have to deal with peeling skin.  Anyway just my thoughts on the issue.  Get on some 🙂
