Why Use a Clay Mask / Masque on Your Skin?

Detox Clay Mask / Masque

Detox 3 Clay Mask / Masque

#1:  Clay Masques absorb a lot of surface oil. You might associate oily skin with younger skin, but that is not always the case. A little oil in the skin is a good thing because it keeps it smooth and soft, but too much oil leaves your skin shiny and greasy. Using a clay masque will help absorb the oil without leaving the skin dry and tight.

#2:  Clay Masques are effective for all skin types.  Clay masques treat all skin types safely. They work wonders with younger skin that may be prone to acne, and they boost elasticity and minimize signs of aging.

#3:  Clay Masques eliminate toxins and dirt in the skin. You would be surprised at how many environmental impurities your face can accumulate throughout the day. When you mix impurities and toxins with excess oil, you promote acne and other skin damage. Clay masques can rid the skin of toxins and impurities.

#4:  Clay Masques remove dead skin cells. Dead skin cells make the skin look ruddy and dull. The problem with aging is a slowing down in naturally sloughing off  dead cells on the skin’s surface. Clay masques do an excellent job of moving along dead skin cells to help your skin look fresh and bright.

Try using Celloxylin Pure Detox, Purifying Masque twice a week to achieve vibrant skin. Apply generously to cleansed skin (massaging in circular motions), avoiding eye areas. Relax and leave on for 10-15 minutes. Remove thoroughly with warm water. Can also be used as a spot treatment; dab and rinse once dry. Recommended for all skin types.

Exactly How Does Our Skin Age?

Do you know how your skin ages from the inside out? We commonly take for granted that our skin as a protective external envelope, without fully considering the numerous, essential functions it provides. Skin is our largest organ, providing an interface between our internal physiological systems and the external world; it protects us from harm due to pathogens, solar radiation, pollutants, and also acts as effective barrier against water loss, ensuring essential nutrients remain in our systems. As we age, skin becomes thinner, drier, and less capable of healing itself . . .

When considering the aging process and skin, there are two major types of aging to consider:

  1. Intrinsic Aging – also known as chronological or natural aging – is caused by changes in the structure and function of skin that occur as we age naturally. Beginning around out mid-20s, physiological changes cause collagen production to slow and skin to loose its elasticity. Dead skin cells do not shed as quickly, and the turnover of new cells begins to slow. Additionally, changes in hormone levels reduce the amount of oil produced, resulting in dry, akey skin.
  2.  Extrinsic Aging – results when exposure to external factors prematurely ages our skin. Numerous factors can negatively affect the skin, the most common of which is sun exposure (extrinsic aging is, therefore, often referred to as photoaging). Other factors include pollution, poor diet, cigarette smoke, stress, and gravity. Exposure results in skin with age spots, blotchy pigmentation, deep wrinkles, and a rough, leathery appearance.

Extrinsic Aging accounts for 90% of the visible signs of aging!

As natural and external processes take their toll, our systems experience oxidative stress, hormone fluctuations, decreases in metabolic activity, and declines in the length of cell life. The effects of both intrinsic aging and extrinsic are visibly seen in the skin: collagen production diminishes and elastin becomes less springy, resulting in less voluminous and elastic skin that sags and wrinkles easily. Skin becomes less moisturized naturally, and exposure to the elements causes hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, and reduces the skin’s ability to hold in moisture. Intrinsic and extrinsic processes are linked; as natural changes take place, our ability to fight the deleterious effects of environmental exposure decreases.

  • Between ages 20 and 80 our collagen production declines by 65%

Skin thins at a rate of 6% per 10 years

“We cannot stop ourselves from aging, we can age gracefully by caring for our skin and reducing our exposure to the harmful factors that cause aging”

While intrinsic processes mean we cannot stop ourselves from aging, we can age gracefully by caring for our skin and reducing our exposure to the harmful factors that cause aging. Be- cause the skin is an organ, it can benefit from products that protect skin and encourage skin regeneration topically, and well as ingested supplements that help maintain healthy system function.

Apriori BeautyTM has taken advantage of this concept by creating an internal and external system enhanced with the patent pending Nutrient ReservoirTM, which delivers essential ingredients to protect and prolong the life of every skin cell while combating the damage we’ve already done, effectively reducing the visible signs of aging. These ingredients protect from the 4 Core Influences of Aging, providing:

  1. Antioxidants to reduce the effects of oxidative stress
  2. Endocrine system modulators to mediate hormone fluctuations
  3. Energy Activators to help promote mitochondrial and metabolic efficiency
  4. Longevity Gene Supporters to extend the life of healthy cells

Pomegranates are Good for Your Skin!

 Our skin is a reflection of what’s going on inside our body, so it only makes sense to nourish and protect our skin by taking in foods that soothe and calm our inflammation. Pomegranate fruit is one such food that has a great effect on the inside of our body, and can help our skin become more beautiful as well!

Pomegranate!

Pomegranate fruit is rich in two types of polyphenolic compounds, anthocyanins and hydrolysable tannins, and is known for its potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Studies have demonstrated the potential for clinical use of pomegranate in the prevention and treatment of cancer (1), and its anti-inflammatory properties make it useful for addressing other diseases where chronic inflammation plays a critical role (2). It is also known to promote cardiovascular health by preventing low-density lipoprotein oxidation, reducing blood pressure and slowing the development of atherosclerosis (3).

Are Your Hair Care Products Free of Sulfates?

It’s really important to use skin and hair products that are as free from known toxins as possible. Our health is a gift and we need to make good choices to protect and nurture our health throughout our life. One ingredient you don’t want in your personal care products is sulfate.

Sulfate Free. We see it highlighted on shampoo bottles like it’s a big deal, but what does this really mean? Why is it important for us to use sulfate free shampoos and conditioners?  Here’s the short + sweet + simple answer.

Sulfate is an inexpensive chemical used by companies to provide cleaning power and bubbly lather in our shampoos (and some conditioners).

It cuts through grease and provides the bubbles that we love, so what’s the problem? The concern is that sulfates can cause skin irritations, worsen skin problems and can even be linked to hair loss! Sulfates are cheap and effective as a detergent, but our delicate scalp, hair, and hair follicles aren’t able to handle the harsh chemical- especially as we age.

The harsh sulfates may be causing you more harm than good.

Tips to Looking Younger While Enjoying the Sun

We all know by now that years of sun exposure will eventually take it’s toll on our skin and appearance, and put us as risk for multiple types of skin cancer. Wearing sunscreen, staying out of the sun during peak hours of the day, and wearing sun protective clothing is very important to keeping our skin healthy and our appearance as youthful as possible!

“…Board-certified dermatologist Arianne Shadi Kourosh, MD, MPH, FAAD, director of community health and co-director of the multiethnic skin clinic in the department of dermatology at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston” reports that “environmental factors can damage the skin in multiple ways, from UVB rays causing sunburns and uneven pigmentation to UVA and infrared radiation penetrating more deeply into the skin to damage existing collagen and reduce collagen production, resulting in wrinkles and sagging skin. Habitual UV exposure can cause blood vessels to become more prominent, causing skin redness, she says, while visible light and pollution can cause uneven skin tone, especially in darker skin types. Moreover, other forms of radiation, such as heat and visible light, can negatively impact the skin, as can pollution, so protecting your skin from the environment can benefit both your health and appearance.”

Sun protective factors of 25 – 30 are sufficient to protect us from 95 – 97% of UV radiation. Using skin care products with antioxidants will also help in protecting our skin from environmental pollution and free radical damage.

“Since both types of UV rays can damage the skin, Dr. Kourosh says, it’s important to use a broad-spectrum sunscreen that provides both UVA and UVB protection, with an SPF of 30 or higher. She recommends sunscreens containing the active ingredients zinc oxide or titanium dioxide as a good source of broad-spectrum protection suitable for sensitive skin. She also says formulations containing antioxidants may provide some protection against uneven skin tone and aging caused by free radical damage from infrared light, visible light and pollution.”

I have just the product that has both 25 SPF for broad spectrum UVA and UVB sun protection as well as antioxidant ingredients. Celloxylin Day Defense Plus from Apriori Beauty has the following ingredient profile:

Active ingredients (purpose – Sunscreen): Avobenzone 3%, Homosalate 3%, Octisalate 3%, Octocrylene 2.79%. Inactive Ingredients: Acetyl Glucosamine, Acetyl Octapeptide-3, Acrylamide/Sodium Acryloyldimethyltaurate Copolymer, Angelica Polymorpha Sinensis Root Extract, Betaine, Butylene Glycol, Butyrospermum Parkii Butter, Caffeine, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Caprylyl Glycol, Carnitine HCL, Cetearyl Olivate, Cetyl Alcohol, Dehydroacetic Acid, Dicaprylyl Carbonate, Dimethicone, Dimethiconol, Fragrance*, Glycerin, Glyceryl Stearate, Glycyrrhetinic Acid, Hexylene Glycol, Hyaluronic Acid, Hydroxyproline, Isohexadecane, Lecithin, Linoleic Acid, Lycium Barbarum (Goji Berry) Fruit Extract, Mica, Oleic Acid, Palmitic Acid, PEG-100 Stearate, Pentylene Glycol, Petasites Japonicus Root Extract, Phenoxyethanol, Phytosteryl Canola Glycerides, Polyethylene, Polysilicone-11, Polysorbate 80, Potassium Sorbate, Resveratrol Acetate, Rhodiola Rosea (Golden Root) Extract, Silica, Sorbitan Oleate, Sorbitan Olivate, Stearic Acid, Sucrose, Tocopherol, Tremella Fuciformis Sporocarp (Mushroom) Extract, Triolein, Ubiquinol, Water (Aqua), Xanthan Gum.*Fragrance made up of all-natural ingredients.

Eating Soy Improves Health in Some Breast Cancers

There has been conflicting advice about whether or not eating soy and soy isoflavones is harmful if you’re at risk or have had breast cancer. New research has shown a positive effect on the health in those with some types of breast cancer with the regular consumption of soy.

Is Soy Safe? - Plant Based Dietitian

Soy

An epidemiological analysis of data from more than 6,000 American and Canadian women with breast cancer finds that post-diagnosis consumption of foods containing isoflavones — estrogen-like compounds primarily found in soy food — is associated with a 21 percent decrease in all-cause mortality. This decrease was seen only in women with hormone-receptor-negative tumors, and in women who were not treated with endocrine therapy such as tamoxifen. [Read more…]

4 Steps to Applying Skin Care for Greatest Benefit

Do we know if the order of applying our skin care products aids or deters them being absorbed fully, giving us the full benefits of our products? Dermatology researchers now tell us it is important to prioritize the order in which we apply our cleansers, serums, medications and lotions.

Cleanse facial skin first

“Medications or treatments should be applied directly after washing your face,” said board-certified dermatologist Susan C. Taylor, MD, FAAD. “This ensures that the medications or treatments are properly absorbed by the skin. Otherwise, people may think a product isn’t working because it’s applied in the wrong order.”

My experience goes along with what Dr. Taylor suggests as the optimum order of application: [Read more…]

3 Ways to Get Rid of Old, Dead Skin from Your Face

It’s a fact that as we age, our body’s ability to move along old, dead skin cells slows down. I have three different ways – and products – you can use to exfoliate your skin, so moisturizers can better absorb, doing their job more completely, instead of sitting on the top of your skin, giving you partial results.

Should I scrub, peel or masque?

If you think your skin is too sensitive for an exfoliating scrub, peel or masque, think again. Exfoliation has benefits for every skin type.

Why Exfoliate?
Exfoliation removes dead skin cells from pores, revealing fresh skin cells and making the pores appear smaller. Not only will your skin look fresh and smooth, but your makeup will also look better. And once the build-up is removed, your skin’s ability to absorb everything that follows, from acne treatments to your anti-aging regimen, is enhanced. [Read more…]

How to Protect Our Skin from Air Pollution Damage

Because living in a sterile bubble is not an option, how can we protect our skin from air pollution damage? Exhaust from cars, dust, dirt, and all kinds of environmental particles surround us whether we are inside our homes or outside taking a walk.

According to NASA, 80% of the world breathes polluted air—an alarming fact considering that the World Health Organization cites air pollution as the biggest environmental threat to our health. Besides cancer, particulate air pollution—a combination of dust, dirt, smog, soot and other toxins in the air—has also been linked to a host of respiratory conditions, heart disease and more. And it’s not only that: Did you ever stop to think about what it’s doing to our skin?


How Pollution Affects our Skin

We already know that it’s bad for our lungs, but it’s also aging our skin. Polluted air—composed of tiny particles that are as much as 20 times smaller than our pores—can easily pass through the surface of our skin and cause a series of cellular reactions that lead to inflammation, dehydration and collagen breakdown. This accumulated damage impacts our skin’s elasticity and firmness over time, giving our skin a rougher texture and causing premature fine lines and wrinkles to appear.

Aside from prematurely aging your skin, these nanoparticles also steal oxygen from the skin cells and strip the skin of its protective barrier, the shield that blocks dirt and impurities and holds in vital moisture. When the protective barrier is compromised, it also makes it easy for allergens and free radicals in the air to enter the skin, where they can cause the most damage, leading to increased skin sensitivity and pigmentation issues. It doesn’t help that as we get older it becomes harder and harder for our bodies to fight free radicals. It’s a vicious cycle.

What We Can Do

Since it’s hard to distinguish the damage caused by pollution from other factors, it always helps to have a solid skin care regimen to protect our skin from all types of damage. Here are a few ways to beef up our routine.

Wash Our Face Thoroughly at Night

The first rule of thumb is to never (ever!) go to bed without washing our face. We never want to let surface dirt and particles—as well as makeup—sit on our skin overnight. Look for a gentle cleanser that won’t strip our skin’s protective lipid barrier, which we know is so vital to keeping out pollution. Here’s a great gentle and effective surface and deep pore cleanser I recommend:  Celloxylin Step 1. Crème Cleanse

Load Up on Antioxidants—Inside and Out

We know that antioxidants neutralize damage-causing free radicals, so make sure our diet is rich in dark leafy vegetables and brightly colored fruits. Top it off with a high-quality antioxidant serum like Lifeoxylin Cellular Defense Elixir

Detox Our Skin

Enviro-Extract blend is a key ingredient blend that helps to remove additional heavy metals the skin is exposed to from the environment. It helps to chelate (attach to) heavy metals, remove toxins from the skin, and aids in guarding against future oxidative environmental exposure. I like to use Celloxylin Pure Detox, Purifying Masque

Strengthen Our Protective Barrier

Aside from using protective skin care products like sunscreen, make sure you use products that repair and replenish your skin’s moisture barrier, like Celloxylin Step 5. Day Defense Plus, Broad Spectrum SPF 25

7 Tips to Keep Your Skin Moist in Cold, Dry Weather

The winds are beginning to blow, and heaters are being turned on everywhere you go! Do you struggle with dry, flaking, itchy skin in the winter?

When that unpleasant chill hits the air, it’s time to get tips on how to keep your skin hydrated in the wintertime. Dryness can be uncomfortable, and it’s important to defend yourself against the elements in order to maintain smoothness and suppleness all season long. Keeping skin beautiful and hydrated in colder weather calls for both internal and external care.

Soft, hydrated skin!

Dry skin care tips for Morning

  • Wash your face with lukewarm water—not too hot and not too cold— to wake yourself up without drying the skin or constricting your pores.
  • Cleanse your skin with a sulfate-free cleanser. Sulfates are extremely drying and irritating to the skin. In addition, lathering bar soaps and strong foaming face washes strip the skin of its natural protective water and oils.  Celloxylin Step 1. Crème Cleanse!
    Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize. As you probably already know, moisturizing is key for dry skin types. Apply your moisturizer right after cleansing to lock in the water before it evaporates. Look for a moisturizer with a broad spectrum SPF to protect against the sun’s damaging rays. Celloxylin Step 5. Day Defense Plus, Broad Spectrum SPF 25

Dry skin care tips for Day

  • Your skin will dry out as it’s exposed to the elements throughout the day. That’s why it’s important to re-apply moisturizer whenever you notice your skin becoming dry. Carry a moisturizer in your bag so you can dab a little on whenever necessary.  Celloxylin Hydro-Burst Moisture Intense Lotion.
    Drink water. It may seem obvious, but sipping on water throughout the day naturally keeps your body— and by extension— your skin cells, hydrated.

Dry skin care tips for Night

  • At night, once again cleanse your skin of makeup and the day’s pollutants with a gentle, sulfate-free cleanser using lukewarm water
  • Immediately after, apply a heavier moisturizer or cream that will sink in throughout the night. Rich creams are dry skin’s best friend. Look for creams containing nourishing ingredients like hyaluronic acid, glycerin or oils such as olive, and coconut oil. While these thicker lotions are too heavy for the day, the night gives your skin plenty of time to absorb all of their hydrating properties. Try our Celloxylin Step 5. Night Repair 3Deep!
