#1] Dry Skin Brush the body to remove dead cells and toxins, to increase blood circulation and lymphatic function, and to improve overall skin quality. This is a health and well-being tip that also brings you more radiant skin! More delicate Face Brushing can help your skin as well! Learn about both at www.skin-brushing.com.
#2] Use products that boost or step-up collagen production. Why? Collagen production slows as we age, and loss of collagen equals wrinkles, sagging and thinning of skin. Learn more about collagen here.
Peptides like Matrixyl, Renovage and Trylagen are superior and are proven to increase collagen production.; stem cells and growth factors do the job even better but are more expensive. Use of Retinol helps to encourage new collagen, and Vitamin C is a big aid, too (our Retinol serum has Vitamin C included!).
Some examples: our Collagen Peptide Serum with Matrixyl is popular because it works, and our new stem cell serum was featured on tv and is finding devoted followers. The Ageless Serum features Renovage AND Matrixyl, and our Face Whisperer Day Cream features Trylagen (as well as Argireline, the natural botox).
#3] Don’t forget the sunscreen! Skin cancer is on the rise, and the sun is the #1 external cause for aging skin. Most dermatologists suggest at least an SPF30.
We offer two SPF30 Vitamin C products: one is in a glass jar for daily home use, and the other is in a tube easy to take to the beach or on vacation. Vitamin C is a most powerful antioxidant and not only helps to protect but also heals skin.
#4] Bring back barrier-protection and moisture-retention with natural Phytoceramides. Work from the inside out! Like collagen, ceramides diminish with age and this is a problem. Ceramides are responsible for barrier protection and moisture-retention… skin becomes dryer and thinner with less defenses against the environment. Learn more at www.sublime-phytoceramides.com (and in the new book, Phytoceramides: Anti-Aging at its Best).
#5] Don’t overlook good foods and enough sleep. Lack of both shows in the face and in skin! You can have a superior skincare routine and products, but they won’t work as well if you aren’t nourishing your body correctly or are frankly tired.
Includes summer salads with yummy vegetables, fruits, nuts, some lean proteins and whole-grains. Enjoy – and let your skin shine with health and well-being!
