Our age shows on our hands - just like anywhere else on our body. Exposure to the elements and sun, harsh products and manual work all manifest themselves especially on our hands. We are not saying, start behaving like a hand model. But whenever you put your serum, moisturizer, sunscreen, night cream, face-oil or other goodies on your face (neck and precious décolletage) simply massage any leftover residue into your hands. And let your hands speak to your age the same as your face.
While we sleep our body regenerates - and so does our skin. That's why it makes sense to use richer products at night time, or even overnight masks. Try sleeping on your back to avoid pillow wrinkles ... and shoot for sweet dreams ⭐️🌝⭐️
One of the most common complaints we hear as estheticians is that clients become frustrated with their friend's skincare recommendations or the latest craze. Every skin is different and has different needs. What might feel wonderful and bring great results for one person, might not work for someone else at all. A proper skin analysis will determine your skin type, inform you about skin conditions, and leave you with professional recommendations on how to treat them. In order to see results, be a little patient. Our skin cells regenerate every 28 (they slow down with age) - so give a regiment about three months to see if it works for you. (Unless, of course, if you experience any adverse reactions due to for example allergies)
Vitamins A, C and E can put you ahead of the curve in the skin game. Why? Vitamin A - retinoids - reduce wrinkles, fade brown spots, and smooth the skin. Apply at night and lay off if irritations occur. Vitamin C helps fight free radicals that trigger wrinkling and sagging, smoothes and firms skin and fades brown spots. Apply in the morning as Vitamin C has inherent sun protection. Vitamin E helps retain skin moisture, promotes healing and neutralizes damaging free radicals. Look for a serum or face oil as a boost to the daily skincare routine.
This one is definitely a tough one for me.. When you consume sugar or simple carbohydrates your body breaks down these carbohydrates into glucose. In a process known as glycation, digested sugar permanently attaches to proteins. Especially vulnerable are collagen and elastin: they become stiff, weak and less supple - as in sagging skin and wrinkles. Aside from increasing the effects of aging, glycation can also exacerbate skin conditions like acne and rosacea.
According to the American Heart Association (AHA), the maximum amount of added sugars men should consume per day is 9 teaspoons, or 6 for women. So if you see your energy drink has 34 grams of sugar, just divide it by 4 ... and you know what that means.
