PREVENT EARLY AGING!

We all know to fight aging with sunblock and night creams. We get regular facials or do at-home facials to work on our skin’s texture and keep it clear. But there’s something really powerful that you can do every day (or at least every other day) that is incredibly powerful because it exfoliates and helps generate cell turnover, which are both key to prevent early aging. It only takes 60 seconds and you can do it while you let your conditioner soak in! Here’s how:  (more…)

DAILY POWER PEEL

If there’s one thing I always tell my clients to begin the battle against aging is some sort of daily peel to generate cell turnover. That could be a scrub (remember my Exfoliating 101 Tutorial on why you should apply the scrub on dry skin before washing your face?) or… an acid peel. I know it sounds crazy to put acid on your face but it’s not the kind of acid that you think! They’re natural acids that gently exfoliate the top layer of skin, alerting your body to generate new cells every single day which results in younger-looking, healthy skin! To simplify it, here are some key points:  (more…)

EYE CREAM SECRET

If you have puffy bags under your eyes, where you applied your eye cream might be the culprit! Here’s the deal… eye cream warms up with your body temperature and travels as it seeps into your skin. So if you apply it directly on top of your crow’s feet along your lashlines, it will travel into your eyes and irritate them, causing them to swell and give you extra unwanted baggage.

The good news is, because eye cream travels, just apply it 1/2 inch or so above your upper lashline and below your lower lashline, then while you’re sleeping, it will travel on its own and stop right around your crow’s feet, where you wanted it in the first place! Be sure to use your ring finger to apply it (it’s your weakest finger so you won’t pull too hard) and after making the dots, gently pat them in.

FRUIT FOR THOUGHT

We’ve always heard “an apple a day keeps the doctor away,” but one of the biggest benefits from eating fruit is for our skin! Because I can’t say enough about anti-oxidants anti-oxidants ANTI-OXIDANTS! They are the secret to fighting free radicals that break everything down, causing the depletion of healthy cells and leading to skin in-elasticity, wrinkles, acne and irritations. Think of anti-oxidants as an army inside of you that attacks everything skin-harming that comes its way. But we need to keep the army replenished and fruit is our biggest supplier! Here are the anti-oxidant super powers: (more…)
