Product Review: Polishing Peel for Baby Soft Skin

As we age, the turnover rate of our skin cells slows. Dead skin cells that normally shed every 28 days hang on to the skin’s surface longer, leaving it feeling coarser due to uneven surface texture. This rough texture does not reflect light evenly, resulting in lack of skin radiance or brightness. This slowed cell turnover can exasperate the appearance of pores making them appear larger.

Many individuals turn to different skin treatments to help alleviate these skin aging concerns. One common skin treatment is microdermabrasion, which uses a tool to buff or sand away the stratum corneum (outer layers of the epidermis). This increases the smoothness of your skin, helps it look brighter and decreases the appearance of pores. This can also stimulate the skin’s natural cell renewal process, resulting in a younger appearance. Microdermabrasion is less invasive than many professional skin treatments, but some may experience mild swelling and redness that lasts from as little as a few hours to a couple of days.

Nu Skin’s Polishing Peel Skin Refinisher resurfaces and polishes skin to immediately deliver a fresh, glowing complexion. It features pumpkin enzymes to resurface, soften and polish the skin and bentonite clay to remove dull skin cells and toxins. In an internal consumer use study, Nu Skin Polishing Peel was found to provide benefits similar to those experienced by some microdermabrasion techniques.

During this study participants received a professional microdermabrasion treatment on one side of their face and used Nu Skin Polishing Peel on the other half of their face. The users and independent graders tactilely and visually evaluated their skin. Overall, the two were considered equivalent, with Nu Skin Polishing Peel rating higher for the skin being smoother and softer and microdermabrasion rating slightly higher for the skin feeling resurfaced.

Positive benefits reported from both treatments included “skin is glowing,” “looks smoother,” “pores seem smaller,” “looks resurfaced,” “tone and color are more even,” “looks healthier,” “looks less oily,” and “I look younger.”

Nu Skin Polishing Peel provides results equivalent to microdermabrasion with a convenient, quick, application just a couple times per week as part of your skin care regimen. It helps resurface and polish skin leaving a healthy, youthful looking complexion and radiates a healthy looking glow.

Benefits of Eating Berries

Screen Shot 2014-09-29 at 11.05.46 AM

If someone offers you a pill for weight loss or to prevent vision loss such as that caused by macular degeneration, you would take it right? Well no need for pills, just hop on over to your local grocery store and load up on fresh or frozen berries. Berries contain antioxidants and phytochemicals, which are naturally occurring nutrients in our bodies that help protect cells from cell damage (oxidative stress) caused by free radicals. Eating a diet rich in antioxidants can help improve your health, protect your skin and hair, and prevent certain diseases. All fruits and vegetables contain antioxidants, but nutrient-rich berries are some of the absolute best sources. Some of the best sources of these health benefits are Strawberries, Blackberries, Raspberries, Boysenberries, Cranberries and Blueberries.

There are several powerful antioxidants that appear in berries, including anthocyanins, quercetin, and vitamin C. Anthocyanins give berries their vibrant color, reduce inflammation, and may help prevent and manage arthritis. Anthocyanins work together with quercetin to help slow age-related memory-loss. Quercetin can also decrease the inflammatory effects of chemicals in the synovial fluid of the joints for people with inflammatory conditions like rheumatoid arthritis.

Studies have shown that woman who eat two servings of strawberries or one serving of blueberries a week experienced less mental decline over time than peers who did not consume berries. Berries are also able to be included in diets of those suffering with diabetes. While they are a “sweet” fruit, they contain a high level of fiber which can be useful in diabetic diets. They can count as a serving of fruit. Its always better to eat fresh berries than those that have been processed or used in a pie or muffin.

People who eat at least two servings of berries a week have a 25 percent less chance of developing Parkinson’s disease than their peers, according to research published in the journal Neurology. The same research showed that men with the highest intake of flavonoids — which are abundant in berries — reduced their risk by 40 percent. Flavonoids are being studied to help ward off certain types of cancer. Research published in the Journal of Pharmaceutical and Biomedical Analysis suggests that flavonoids and other compounds found in berries may help reduce colon cancer risk. Besides eating them plain, you can also get your berry servings by adding them fresh or frozen to other high-nutrition foods such as yogurt, oatmeal, and salads.

Vitamin C is another strong antioxidant found in berries. It is largely responsible for the health of collagen, which helps maintain cartilage stores and aids in joint flexibility. Eating vitamin C–rich berries will contribute to radiant skin and healthy hair, and may reduce the risk of arthritis, high blood pressure, cataracts, and macular degeneration.

In addition to antioxidants, berries are “juicy foods,” which means they contain mostly water. Juicy foods are great for losing weight because they fill you up quickly, since their high water content bumps up the volume while driving down the calories. Berries also contain fiber and folate. Fiber aids in weight loss and helps lower cholesterol and blood pressure. Folate may protect against cardiovascular disease and age-related memory loss, and since folate contributes to the production of serotonin, it may also help ward off depression and improve your mood. IBS sufferers take note: Some people with IBS experience discomfort after eating berries. People with a strong inherited risk for heart disease may find that a diet rich in raw fruits and vegetables, including berries, can reduce their chances of having a heart attack, according to a study published in PLoS Medicine.

Remember, if you can’t find fresh berries, frozen (unsweetened) berries are a good substitute during the off-season months — and just as nutritious!

30’s, 40’s, 50’s… OH MY!

LIFE…In your 20’s you can conquer the world, you are feeling unstoppable. Your 30’s you think about settling down and starting your own family. You hit 40, the vision starts to get worse and the reading glasses get added as a necessary accessory. You hit 50 and it seems like everything begins to fall apart. Its as though a time clock just went off reminding us that we are entering THE ZONE.

The Zone I am referring too is the one where you log into your Facebook account and see all the updates of your friends… the aches, the pains, the illnesses and surgeries of aging. Weren’t we JUST in high school a few short years ago? Wow how time flies! Gratitude lists begin showing up more and more as status updates. Don’t look at the things that are wrong, look at the things that are right, that are going your way. Sounds like a plan to me. But when you go for your annual physical and the reports are not as peachy as they were before, or you look in that mirror and see that new line that wasn’t there yesterday, or that dark freckle thats starting to look a little off, or the indigestion that you seem to get every single time you sit down to a nice dinner, your brain begins to wander and you start thinking…aging sucks! Then it hits me!

If I want to feel my absolute best and be in the same shape I was in when I was younger, sitting on my butt in front a computer screen all day is not going to work anything out on my body, except maybe my fingers. Time to put the wheels in motion and take charge of my life, while I am still trying to figure out what I want to do when I grow up. I need to be the best me I can be that will allow me to “grow up” gracefully. So I began to do some research into a variety of products that would help me slow down the aging process, that were not filled with hype and unfulfilled promises. I found a product line by a company called Pharmanex. This company has the key to slowing down the aging process. With their recent aquisition of LifeGen Technologies, they have over 30 years of research on how and why people age. I began taking some of their products and let me tell you, that stuff changed my life! I am not one to rave about a product nor promote a product on this blog very often (if you are an avid reader, then you know this already). But this stuff is truly a life saver. Supposedly it has an ingredient that can re-start the mitochondria in your cells. The mitochondria slows down as we age and causes most of our problems as we age. The mitochondria is the brain of every single cell we have in our bodies. Its the powerhouse of our cells. I not only sleep better at night, but I feel like I have the energy of the 30 year old. Its pretty incredible! The best part is my blood work from my physical came back better then it had in years! This link can give you more information on how to slow down the aging process for yourself and feel year younger. I PROMISE! Let me know how you feel after you try one of these products.

AgeLoc Galvanic Body Spa. Remove Cellulite NOW!

ImageErgonomically designed for ease of use and handling during body treatments, the new ageLOC Galvanic Body Spa with pulsating technology features a proprietary ageLOC body conductive surface designed to deliver 10 times more ageLOC to your skin when used with AgeLOC Body Shaping Gel. The ageLOC Galvanic Body Spa targets the ultimate sources of aging while diminishing the appearance of fat and cellulite and smoothing skin to provide a slimmer, more toned appearance. It also features a self-adjusting current, lighted display, and audio indications, making it an easy to use in-home anti-aging body system. Newly developed, patent-pending galvanic pulsating technology is optimized to maximize anti-aging effects on the arms, abdomen, buttocks, and thighs. The skin on the body is thicker and less sensitive, making it benefit from and respond to a pulsating galvanic current. It also helps stimulate, purify, and refresh your skin to reduce the visible signs of aging—for a slimmer, smoother, firmer, youthful looking you today and in the future.

What is unique about the ageLOC Galvanic Body Spa?

The ageLOC Galvanic Body Spa was designed for use in combination with ageLOC Body Shaping Gel on body areas—not on the face and neck. This instrument was designed to target a larger surface area with a patentpending ageLOC conductive surface that captures 10 times more key ingredients between the conductive surface and the skin (when compared to the body conductor attachment). Secondly, this design is more ergonomic for easier use and handling during body treatments. Thirdly, the ageLOC Galvanic Body Spa and ageLOC Body Shaping Gel target end benefits/results (i.e., appearance of cellulite, slimming, toning, etc.) that are different from those targeted on the face. Lastly, the skin on the body is thicker and less sensitive, making it more apt to benefit from and respond to a pulsating current.

What is the difference between a pulsating galvanic current and a constant galvanic current?

A constant galvanic current is one that has a steady flow. It does not waver or vary in amplitude. A pulsating galvanic current is one that varies between two different, pre-established levels. Please note these are very different than alternating currents (AC). Within alternating currents, the polarity fluctuates between positive and negative poles. A pulsating galvanic current is better suited for the body.

What is the benefit of using a pulsating galvanic current on the body?

Direct (galvanic) currents, whether pulsating or not, can assist in the delivery of like charged key ingredients to the skin by improving osmotic flow. This is increasingly important for enhancing delivery of key ingredients to areas with thicker skin. Additional research has shown that the pulsating current enhances fluid vibration. Pulsating galvanic currents aid in stimulating skin and increasing cellular communication to help purify and refresh skin and help reduce the visible signs of skin aging. Pulsating galvanic currents are optimally designed for use on the body where the skin can benefit from enhanced fluid vibration.

Cellulite? Have I Got News For You!

Image

If you have those lumpy, dimply skin that often resembles cottage cheese or orange rinds, it’s quite normal. 9 out of 10 women have certain degree of cellulite on their thighs, buttocks, bellies and arms. But, why just woman?

Cellulite occurs when pockets of fat pushed up against connective tissue underneath the skin. Female skin tissue is thinner and less porous therefore, when fat cells push up, they’re more noticeable.

Tips to help minimize its appearance so you can wear bikini confidently next time you go to the beach!

  1. Avoid too much sugar and salt in your diet. Sugar stores in fat cells and causes expansion, salt causes fluid retention.
  2. Drink 8-10 glasses of water daily helps to flush out toxins that hide in the fat layers beneath the skin. Hydration helps to plum up the skin making it look less lumpier.
  3. Switch to non-elastic undergarments made of smooth fabric with an invisible edge. Create even pressure on skin and prevent fat from being pushed up and deposited in unwanted areas. Thong and Capri length undergarments are also good choices.
  4. Massage DO work! By creating friction, you can loosen or soften those fibrous connective bands between the skin, stimulate circulation and drain excess fluids. When fat cells aren’t full, the lumps look smooth.
  5. DO NOT take diuretic products. Diuretic reduce fluid buildup for a brief period of time, and can negatively impact your digestive system.

Or alternatively, try ageLOC Galvanic Body Spa…

STRESS = EATING?

If stress trigger your need to put some food in your much, why not reach for something healthy that will also help alleviate the stress?  What type of food does that you ask?  Well check out these favorites…

1.  Chocolate – My number 1 favorite.  Eating a 1 oz. piece of dark chocolate can bring on a feeling of calm in less then 2 minutes according to researchers at UCLA.  The feeling can last up to 2 hours!  Chocolate contains a couple compounds that help boost alpha waves in the brain.  Alpha waves are the things that hep calm the brain down.  Who said eating chocolate is a bad thing!

2.  Carrots- Probably my number 2 favorite.  Munching on a handful of these crispy veggies also can help reduce nervousness by 20 percent according to those same researchers.  Actually any number of crunchy veggies can help with this.  The natural aggressive act of crunching between the teeth can actually increase endorphins  which are known to make humans feel good.  The same type of reaction that you can get from sex.  The calm effect can take place within 15 seconds of crunching!

3. Beans – Beans help to PREVENT sugar spikes.  When there are sugar spikes in blood levels a feeling of anxiety can also rear its ugly head.  Beans help equal prevent these spikes when studied among women.  Nearly 50% felts calmer after eating a bean dish (hummus).  The balanced blend of fiber, rote in and polyphenols that prevent tensions triggering blood sugar spikes and crashes can last for up to 4 hours!

Next time you feel stress or tension, its ok to eat.  But reach for something that will help you through it, not something you will feel guilty about indulging in afterwards.
