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.

Why Acetyl Octapeptide-3 is Better Than Injectables

I don’t use facial injectables as part of my beauty regimen, so when I have a chance to observe, fairly up close, someone who does, it interests me. I like to watch how her facial muscles contract, or not, how her emotions are expressed on her face matching the varying tones of her conversation, then try to guess which areas the formulas have been injected. I wonder if prolonged use of injectables does long term damage to the nerves, muscles and circulation within the tissues. I also wonder if the tissue “stretches” to accommodate the added volume, and if over time and with loss of collagen and elastin, will the area require more filler to keep it up, and if the tissue will eventually sag even more.

Someone I observed recently, was seated next to me at a luncheon. As we were chatting, I thought to myself back to the last time we had chatted, which was over a year ago. Then I thought she looked different, which was when it dawned on me she had had some cosmetic support as I noticed her forehead not moving and very little facial movement during the course of our hour long conversation. If I hadn’t honed in on her facial movement, or lack thereof, I would have left thinking how youthful and beautiful she looked. And she really did look lovely.

Natural Facelift Tips

There are so many ways to lift your facial skin these days, if you choose to. OR, you can embrace your natural beauty at any age.

Dame Maggie SmithIf you do choose to do a “little something”, you have many alternatives from a cream to a machine, before considering the knife.

There are many topicals and injectables that can tighten the sags, plump the lips, fill in the crevices and freeze the wrinkles.

Surgery can pull up, pin up, or take off the excess skin being pulled down by gravity.

There are gadgets that deep clean with a brush, tighten with electrical current, radiate with light rays, penetrate with sound waves, and rev up the circulation. [Read more…]

When Should I Start Using Anti-Aging Skin Care?

skin-tonerWhen should I start using anti-aging skin care products? How does my skin and appearance change as I go through life? What can I do to slow it down, or prevent it from showing these changes?

Great questions I’m asked often, most recently by a beautiful 20-something as we were chatting about the biggest problem she has with her skin right now. Surprisingly, it was the beginnings of eye and lip wrinkles!

Here’s a short description of what you can expect to see in your skin as you blow out more birthday candles every year! [Read more…]

Hold It In, Smooth It Over and Lift It Up!

Your skin is your body’s natural “girdle”, keeping your internal “everything” held in and together, protected and flexibly able to move. Just look at a young child or teenager and you see no wrinkles, sagging or flapping in the wind.

The years go by. The clock ticks away and the internal components that give our skin its elasticity and “spring back into place” flexibility wane. We see the signs when we look in the mirror – which we do less of as we get older. Ahem.

You know my love for the Classic Hollywood Musicals, and this topic brings to mind “Two Week With Love“. Have you seen it? Jane Powell stars as an ‘almost’ eighteen year old, on vacation with her family at a resort where she encounters many young people just a wee bit older than she, and a handsome “older gentleman” who she’s smitten with. The problem: She’s the only one who still is not wearing a corset, and EVERYONE knows it! Her mother stays strong in not allowing it, and her father intervenes – with something only a man would select – an orthopedic corset that locks up when you bend! I’ll let you enjoy it for yourself – it is one of my all time favorites.

I share the story because it always made me want to wear a pretty corset like the one she did her “Corset Song” in, and look as smooth and “lifted” as she. The difference in how her dresses looked pre- and post- corset were remarkable and certainly presented her figure in a much more flattering image. [Read more…]

A Little Concealer Goes a Long Way

How do you lighten up the larger, deeper wrinkles – you know, the ones between your eyebrows and on the sides of your nose down to your chin? You have them, too? Feeling like a ‘wrinkle dog” some days?

Here are my tips for lightening, reflecting and concealing the “11’s” as they are referred to, with a few makeup tricks. I call the the one between my eyebrows the “furrow of concentration”, because it comes when I am concentrating, and the one on the sides of my nose and mouth the “parentheses of happiness”, because it comes from smiling big and often!

How to Fight the 4 Core Influences of Aging

What are the four core influences of aging, how do they affect what we experience physically, and what we see in the mirror as we grow older?

Why does an Internal + External approach to the battle against the visible signs of aging work the best?

Consumers are increasingly seeking “anti-aging” cosmetic products that treat the visible signs of natural and environmental aging, such as wrinkles, lines, sagging, hyperpigmentation and age spots.  The problem is, products that only focus on treating the signs of aging are not proactive or preventative.  This is what sets Apriori Beauty™ apart from the rest – Apriori Beauty sought to take an innovative approach to targeting the causes of aging, not just the symptoms by introducing the Cellular Age Advantage™, a proactive, internal + external approach that utilizes the Nutrient Reservoir™ to address the core causes of cellular aging!

Does Your Face Show Your Stress?

Stress shows on your face. It also wreaks havoc within your body if you are stressed for long periods of time. How do you get rid of stress? That’s a question that only you can answer. Stressors come from so many different places,events and circumstances perceived by each of us uniquely. It’s what you do with it, and how you handle it, that can help you protect your skin and health from it’s detrimental effects if you allow it to take over.

 

While at the grocery store this morning, I was concentrating on navigating my way through the shoppers to gather my frowning womangroceries, when I looked up at a woman who looked so worried and stressed. [Read more…]

What is Beneficial Beauty?

In today’s market, the demand for anti-aging skin care continues to grow rapidly!   While Baby-Boomers look for new methods to slow aging and reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles, a younger generation is increasingly seeking out preventative anti-aging strategies to help them look younger longer.  Topically applied products are undeniably an important tool for supporting skin appearance, structure and function – we love to slather cream everywhere it seems!Happy! by iamamylou

While incredible advances in anti-aging technology are making skin care products more and more effective, for many people, fighting the clock is a losing battle.  Why?  No matter how many “Potions and Lotions” we spread on our skin, the single most important – and BASIC – step in maintaining healthy, beautiful skin is taking care of it from the inside out!

I Love My Results!


Worried about what to do about your wrinkles and saggy skin? Want to look younger?

I can say without question or doubt, I love my younger look!

What I see is reduction in wrinkles, “lifting” of my whole face (- doesn’t it look a little slimmer?), and when I’m not smiling the vertical wrinkles around my lips are gone. The )( between my eyebrows is much less visible (hard to see with my bangs) and  I love the way my skin feels all the time now.  Even the visible blood vessels on my cheeks and chin are reduced as the surrounding skin is healthier, providing greater elasticity and support. Without the acids in my daily skin care, I don’t feel like my face is “dry and tight” any longer – a lot more spring and softness!

Here’s what I’m using from Apriori Beauty:

~ Skincare regimen included using  Celloxylin skincare system daily~

~ The Derma Firm Illuminator five nights a week ~

Sugar Beet Crystal/Papaya Enzyme Microscrub three times a week ~

~ Celloxylin MD 20Ex Acid Peel twice a week ~

~ Drinking Lifeoxylin Elixir for internal cellular support ~

WOW!! I am just thrilled with my results!

Thanks for stopping by and “Making My Life Beautiful”!

Hot Tips for Getting Rid of Mouth Wrinkles!

Don’t you just LOVE this! Are you laughing because you have “The Look”, too? Haha!

Like rays of light streaming from the sun, there they are, without warning – WRINKLES AROUND OUR LIPS!!

Mine just decided to show up one day, bleeding hot pink from my seventies colored lipstick! It is all a part of my “Nurse Face” as my kids like to call it. The )( at the top of the bridge of my nose, the lip wrinkles, the saggy jaw, and / \ on the sides of my nose and mouth. The very signs that  I love to smile and laugh, and now gravity has gotten hold of my face and is pulling down hard, right before my eyes!

If you have every stood in front of the mirror and pulled up the sides of your face to see what it used to look like – or what it would look like with a little “Nip and Lift”….(and I KNOW YOU HAVE!) this post is for you!  We are all “sistahs” in this fight to stay looking younger longer.

“Facial movements and expressions, such as squinting or smiling, lead to fine lines and wrinkles. Each time you use a facial muscle, a groove forms beneath the surface of the skin. And as skin ages, it loses its flexibility and is no longer able to spring back in place.  These grooves then become permanent features on your face.” The Mayo Clinic.

You know what that means?  Drinking our eight glasses of water a day is giving us wrinkles! How? By taking those repetitive sips from our water bottles! We carry them everywhere for convenience sake, and take a sip here and there, and every time we do – Zaazing! Another groove is deepened, like the wheels of the pioneers covered wagon carving the Oregon Trail!

Did the Mayo Clinic say Permanent??? Are you panicking right now?

Some ways to treat are topical acid peels, dermabrasion, laser treatments, Botox, fillers and facelifts. There are also a myriad of wrinkles creams on the market.  What if you don’t want to do the above? Have YOU found a wrinkle cream that really takes care of them?  I have.

YES! I have found a winning combo that has allowed my lipstick to bleed no more!  Did you guess it yet? It’s a combination of Apriori Beauty’s Eye + Lip Age Eraser and the Derma Firm Illuminator Beauty gadget. I started using the Eye + Lip Age Eraser last June, and saw a really nice fullness develop around my lips, and even though the wrinkles were diminished, and quite nicely I will admit, I knew they were still there and that bothered me.  Then I purchased the Derma Firm Illuminator, with the galvanic, far infrared light, ultrasound and vibration therapies, and four months later, using five nights a week with a full two minute cycle just around my lips, they are gone. Yes, gone. No more hot pink “rays of sun” for this girl!

Hope you enjoyed my HOT  TIP for today!!

Thanks for stopping by and Making My Like Beautiful!
