Ultrasonic Wave Therapy

More often I’m reading about ultrasonic wave therapy used in skin care treatments, mostly as an anti-aging treatment. Turns out there are some excellent benefits from regular treatments with ultrasonic waves. Just what is it?

Ultrasound wave technology uses sound waves that are greater than the upper limit of human hearing. These waves generate approximately 5 million vibrations per second and generate heat that raises the skin temperature by 0.5 – 1.0°C, benefiting skin by: [Read more…]

Help for a Curling Iron Burn

I need to slow down – I’m moving too fast, always in a hurry! In the past 6 months, I’ve have two curling iron burns on my left hand from whipping the iron around, hurrying to get going somewhere.

They were both second degree burns – both blistered and were pretty angry and red. I didn’t break the blisters open, so as to keep them free from bacteria and help them heal naturally. Here’s the first one 2 weeks after the burn.

Second Degree Curling Iron Burn

I applied the Apriori Beauty Night Repair 3 Deep about 5 – 6 times a day, the size of a small pea, keeping the area moisturized and with all the great nutrients in the cream there to soak in. [Read more…]

Infrared Light Therapy for Clearer, Sharper Thinking?

I’ve been using Far Infrared Light three to four times a week for the past five years now, together with three other therapies, to give me a non-sugical facelift. I really love my results, and have been reading with great interest about research on additional uses for far infrared light. Knowing it has a positive effect on wound healing and tissue regeneration of the skin, there are now studies looking at deeper light therapy, particularly into the brain, with positive findings.

We’re starting to use it on the brain.” [Read more…]

Sun Damage Continues On After Exposure

A recent study has demonstrated that UV damage continues on for hours after exposure to the sun.  Once you come into the shade, you are not safe, it seems. There appears to be a cellular process which begins with the sun’s rays shining down upon your skin, and then keeps going for hours, even increasing the damage over time.

Excellent Natural Oil Hair Treatment

Does your hair fly away when you want it to stay down, or feel dry and “crunchy” between your fingers? You may enjoy a special oil treatment for your scalp and hair which will bring back a smooth, silky texture to your hair strands and supplement the moisture in your scalp without making it greasy.

Beauty magazines and sites recommend Olive Oil, Mayonnaise, Eggs and a whole host of other food items from your kitchen to be applied and left on for a time to treat dry hair. Some advise leaving it on overnight, while sleeping with a shower cap on. Okay, I can’t even begin to imagine what kind of night I would have if I did that! The crunching of the plastic cap, the smell of the oil or eggs, a slimy feeling and potential for oozing is NOT attractive to me at all.

Skin Fat Cells Protect Us from Infections

That little bit of pudge, your “baby face,” or having pinch-able cheeks may keep your skin healthier, it seems. Researchers have found that “fat cells below the skin help protect us from bacteria.” In the January 2nd, 2015 issue of Science, the results of a study conducted by scientists at UC San Diego School of Medicine was published showing immune factors within the fat cells beneath our skin.

10 Tips for Beautiful Looking Ears

“Did you wash behind your ears?” Seems like that was a question Mrs. Cleaver used to ask the Beaver often, yet I don’t recall while I was growing up ever having a specific lesson on how to go about cleaning my ears.

Activating Tonic or Toner?

What’s in Your Tonic?

After cleansing, it is common to use a toner or astringent to help remove the last traces of impurities and help close pores.

Unfortunately, many toner type products contain drying alcohol that can disrupt skin barrier function and increase drying of your skin.

Step 2 in the Celloxylin® regimen, Activating Tonic, is uniquely formulated to take advantage of the water absorbed by skin during cleansing and help prepare the skin to fully utilize the benefits of subsequent products in the regimen by opening your pores for better absorption of the Firming Complex.

Sunburn Relief: How to Soothe and Heal Your Inflamed Skin

Protecting skin from irritation and inflammation is key for maintaining healthy, youthful skin. Every inflammatory response damages skin at the cellular level and causes aging. From UV exposure, sun and wind burn, to topical sensitivities, all inflammatory reactions create a variety of adverse and damaging responses on the skin’s surface and below.

It’s better to start with protecting your skin before you expose yourself to the sun and environment and use ingredients that prevent sun damage.

When you do wind up with a sunburn what’s the first thing you think of? Aloe Vera right? Do you have an Aloe Vera plant in your garden? I do, and it is easy to go outside, trim off a “leaf” of this healing succulent, and begin to slice the skin back in layers to reveal the lovely cooling gel that is hidden inside.

Aloe Vera is such a great ready-to-use, natural topical to apply directly to a sunburn, which cools, soothes and heals your inflamed skin. The difficulty is letting the gel dry, and not getting it on your clothes, as well as cutting enough leaves to sufficiently treat a nasty sunburn if over a large area.

Aloe Vera gels or lotions purchased over the counter have varying amounts of true Aloe Vera in them, and always have additional ingredients that may or may not be helpful or healthy to sun damaged skin. I recommend a much better option with Aloe Vera Juice and more ingredients from your garden that soothe and heal…..
