Answers to the Most Frequently Asked Questions on Facial Rejuvenation

Facial Rejuvenation 1(Yes, some answers may surprise you!)

I was recently interviewed about anti-aging skin care by a very engaging editor for Daily Glow and thought you would be interested in knowing the answers to the most frequently asked questions on effective facial rejuvenation strategies.

Daily Glow is a highly regarded site where health meets beauty.

The Daily Glow Editors had amassed quite a list of questions on the latest facial rejuvenation beauty buzz from their readers. Daily Glow challenged me to answer several of the most frequently asked questions concerning aging skin concerns. (And some of the answers may surprise you!)


I Scream, You Scream, Our Skin Screams for Sunscreen!

Did you know what that beautiful bronze tan is? It's actually a very visual symptom of sun damaged skin! A sunburn is exactly that. . . a burn!

It's a clear indictor of wounded skin.

The more often you tan or burn, the more permanently damaged your skin becomes. Over time, your skin becomes so depleted of healthy skin cells that it begins to sag, wrinkle and exhibit spots of darker pigmentation (aka those dreaded age spots).

If people really understood the cumulative destructive effects of sun exposure they would all be screaming, that's for sure.

Fortunately, the remedy is surprisingly simple. . .

Protect your skin from the sun!

That means using a sun screening product with both UVA and UVB protection each and every day; all year long!

As the first sunscreen product to be approved by the USDA a few years ago, Dermatologists have recommended La-Roche Posay Anthelios Daily Moisturizer SPF15 as an excellent sunscreen agent that also happily serves double duty as a moisturizing lotion.

Milk and Honey Skin Calming Facial Treatment

skin care recipesNo matter how hard some people try, there are occasions when we all fall victim to over exposing ourselves to the sun. This soothing facial remedy helps to reduce inflammation, calm the damaged skin cells and infuse the skin with the healing properties of both the honey and Aloe.

  • 1/4 cup whole milk
  • 2 tablespoons of Aloe Vera gel expressed from a few large leaves
  • 2 generous heaping tablespoons honey
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons oatmeal
Mix until smooth, thick. The consistency can be adjusted to your preference by reducing or increasing the amount of oatmeal or milk. Gently pat mixture onto face for 15 to 20 minutes. Rinse well with warm water.

It's "Naturally Skinsational"! :-)

An Alternative to Botox?

Have you noticed lately that there are more and more advertisements promoting an over-the-counter
alternative to Botox?
What most ads don't do it tell you is how the magical face lift in a jar works or why.

The key in these over-the-counter treatments is in the active anti-aging ingredients that mimic the effects of the muscle paralyzing effects of the botulism toxin. . . Botox!

However, rather than introducing a paralyzing toxin injection to the facial muscles to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, the ingredients in the topical OTC treatments calm the muscles naturally. The effects are certainly not as immediate or dramatic as Botox but clinical studies substantiate significant results similar to those of Botox.

Here's the scoop and what you should look for on the ingredient label:
The Alternative to Botox

Shedding New Light on Anti-Aging Skin Care

Is that really me? Has your eye-sight been diminishing over the years? (If not, I'm literally green with envy!)

I don't know what I'd do without my light-up magnifying mirror! Of course, when I look at my skin in a regular mirror (without my glasses on) it sure looks tons better than when I turn on the 10X's magnification on my light-up mirror.

But. . . a magnifying mirror clearly shows the problems area that are developing so I can act on the new age spot that is starting to blossom, fight the new emerging army of blackheads that are threatening to take over my nose, or pluck that man-size whisker sticking out from the tip of my chin. Having a magnifying mirror has become a very important beauty tool for me!

Being able to clearly see what issue my skin is going to present to me next allows me to adjust my skin rejuvenation regimen to address whatever the new and emerging problem is before it gets out of hand! So don't be afraid to light-up it up!

Shaving it a little too close in choosing the right Father's Day Gift?

Why not Rejuvenate Dad on Father's Day?

Give Dad a Whole New Look!

Who said skin care wasn't manly? Wrinkles and age spots just don't limit themselves to the female gender you know; they seek refuge on anyone's aging skin, including men.

Although men might not be as verbal as women about their concern over their appearance, none the less, they do grumble over the toll that the years have taken when they look in the mirror.

Fortunately, anti-aging skin care for men is just as effective as it is for women. Men's skin care products include the same clinically proven anti-aging skin care ingredients in effective concentrations formulated especially for a man's skin care needs.

Give Dad a manly man's shaving and anti-aging skin care starter kit this year for Father's Day. You know it's certainly not something that he will go out and buy for himself but he'll sure be glad you did:
The Basic of Men's Skin Care
Special Tip: Don't tell my husband that I am revealing his secret, but he happens to love using my Clarisonic Skin Care Brush! He had become a huge since he can see that it provides the skin with a super-sonic deep cleaning; prevents acne outbreaks, diminishes the plantation of blackheads around the nostrils, and reduces pore size. Imagine that! (Maybe next time he'll listen to me instead of sneaking off with it to his shower. . .)

He now considers the Clarisonic Skin Care Brush as one of those rare spa devises that isn't too "girly". Men! Go figure!

Until next month. . .
