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…]

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

Peptides for a Younger Looking You

Ever wondered what those magical ingredients were in your anti-aging products and what they actually did to decrease aging’s effects on your skin? Peptides are one of anti-aging’s most desired ingredients, because of the effects they have on the natural support structures within your skin. They are short sequences of amino acids linked by peptide bonds that are similar in structure to proteins, but shorter in length.

Peptides

They play a significant role in reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by stimulating collagen synthesis. Collagen and elastin are the flexible lattice within the skin that helps maintain its structure and youthful elasticity. Some also block the transmission of nerve signals to facial muscles.

5 Tips for Getting a Good Night’s Sleep Without a Prescription

http://www.useloveshare.com/FIC/candace/product/?i=35

Sleep Deprived?

Don’t you just love a good night of long, restful sleep? You have more energy, look and feel so much better, and it seems you can handle the stress that comes with each day a little better. With increased technology, it’s harder to step away from the continuous access to information and communication. The availability of “energy” drinks that help keep our batteries charged, especially when we are stressed and tired. As the pressure and demands of each day increase or don’t let up, the lack of restful sleep can take it’s toll on your mental and physical health

I KNOW that a good night of sleep definitely shows in my skin and my appearance. (Read more about it in “What Does Sleep Do For Your Skin?”)

More and more people are asking their doctors to write them a prescription for a sleep aid. Is this the best answer? Sleep aids are one of the top 3 categories of prescribed drugs. They are also considered one of the leading categories of abused substances. All of the common prescription drugs carry significant and severe warnings. All speak of reported mental problems; depression; addiction; bizarre, even suicidal behavior; sleepwalking; physical problems, such as heartburn, drug hangover; fatigue; drowsiness; and liver damage.

No doubt about it, a great night of sleep – and enough of it – is fabulous for wrinkle prevention! In my post “What does Sleep do For Your Skin” is shared that deep sleep helps your body produce more of its own collagen and elastin. What’s the best way to sleep to give yourself the greatest chance of a good night of deep slumber?

When you consider that wrinkles develop from a combination of loss of skin elasticity and repetitive movements, the light bulb goes on! Deep sleep helps with skin elasticity from the inside, and while getting that deep sleep, you lie in bed night after night in a favorite position. [Read more…]

Be THE FIRST to Know How Nutrigenomics Affects Your Health!

Is it a new type of coffee?  A kind of chocolate?  The latest sports car?  None of the above!  So, then, what is Nutrigenomics and why is it so important to our health and length of life to know?

I first heard the word, Nutrigenomics, a few months ago, and went right to my computer to search it out.  Lo and behold, there really is such a thing, or I should say, a field of science, and it has HUGE implications for our health and longevity!  Remember when we were in our high school biology class – the model of our DNA – the “Double Helix”?  Maybe not.  Alright then, do you recall that we all have genes?  Not the ones that we try to squeeze into to keep in style!DNA by ghutchis

I’m talking about the kind of genes that are in our DNA, also called the “Code of Life”.   Our genes are our body’s secret treasure chest that hold all of the pieces, or traits, that we have inherited since before our ancestors stepped off the Mayflower.learning to smile by dr. JukeBox

They decide the color of our eyes, type of hair, our height, personality quirks and every other inherited trait that has been passed down through many generations, including diseases.  Recently, scientists have identified every single gene we have, and are continuing to study what they do.  Additionally, they are beginning to learn how our environment and diet can change the “Code”, and how these changes lead to degenerative diseases and cancers. Smiling child by Serlunar

Understanding the “Mother” field of Genomics –  how everything in our environment, all that we put on our skin, and everything we consume through our diet – will help build the foundation to our understanding of Nutrigenomics.

Here’s a fun picnic animation from GenomicsBC  http://genomicseducation.ca/picnic/default.htm . Just click on the stars to see the variety of environmental, and nutritional factors that our genes respond to.

“Change is good” you say?  Sometimes.  In the case of our genes, these changes, or Mutations, are usually not.  Gene Mutations create a new Code, resulting in damage that shortens cell life, encourages disease formation, and negatively affects the way we look and feel.The proud grandparents with their grandchildren back in September of 2007. by aislingeach SO, WHAT IS NUTRIGENOMICS?

“THE MOLECULAR  RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN NUTRITION AND THE RESPONSE OF OUR GENES.”

Every thing we eat and put on our skin, goes into our bodies and has an effect on our genes.  The right nutrients promote health, protect our genes from changing or Mutating, and helps them live a healthier and longer life.

Recent scientific studies have identified nutrients in particular plants that provide incredible results in the health and lengthened lifespan of animals.  Currently,  research is underway testing the same in humans, especially with specific disease conditions such as colon cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, melanoma, insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome, and obesity.

The pigments in food very frequently contain phytochemicals – including many with antioxidant properties – that are essential for overall health in terms of the way we look and feel.  Diets high in antioxidant rich fruits and vegetables provide a wide array of health benefits.  In addition to protecting cells from oxidative stress, antioxidants are known to strengthen the immune system function, reduce cancer risk, prevent macular degeneration, and protect against heart disease.  Eating a variety of different colors ensures that you are ingesting the wide array of antioxidants and nutrients.

Fruit heaven!! (EXPLORED) by ~Haani~Now you won’t be afraid of that big word, Nutrigenomics, anymore, AND you know what it is!  You know a little about the science of the future!  Stay tuned – we’ve only just touched the surface!  I will be chatting more about vegetables market by eyeflyerspecific phytonutrients that have healing properties and increase the lifespan of your cells!

You can help keep your Genes and DNA healthier right now, today!  Celloxylin is Nutrigenomic Skin Care and Lifeoxylin is a Nutrigenomic Elixir that allows you to “Drink Your Colors” – fruits and vegetables, that is!
