You want products that include Neuropeptides. This peptide is finer than others and is the key to a beautiful complexion. It penetrates the surface of the skin, repairing the cells, while reducing fine lines and wrinkles, improving the surface of the skin. Use daily for maximum benefits. 2) Easy on the Eyes: The eye area is more delicate than the rest of the skin on the face, so be sure to use an eye cream that is specifically formulated for this area. Heavy creams can cause the eye area to dry out, causing unnecessary wrinkling. Lighter eye creams with nutrients are best. Our Ultra Firming Eye Cream by Ongrien is a helpful solution for dry, puffy, and dark circles around the eyes, furthermore, it smoothes fine lines and wrinkles, leaving the eyes looking youthful. 3) A Light Idea: With the colder months comes increased dryness. Switch to a more hydrated version of your favorite creams so skin doesn’t get dry and flakey. When skin gets dry it suffers and wrinkles appear. Using serums with peptides are essential for extra protection A L I V E E A S T B A 32 Y f e b r u a r y 2 0 1 6 and hydration. 4) Screen Test: When you have sensitive skin you need to wear sunscreen every day. Look for sunscreens that contain titanium dioxide and zinc oxide. This type of sunscreen blocks harmful UV rays and won’t clog pores, plus it will not cause the skin to break out or bring about irritation. 5) Dare To Detox: Use a good clay mask to draw impurities out of the skin to detoxify the surface. A good masque will pull out debris from the skin and close the pores naturally. For optimum beauty everyone should detoxify the skin at least twice a month. 6) Get The Glow: Using a good exfoliant is part of an excellent beauty regime. Exfoliating the skin every day will help remove the top layer of the skin, irrigating topical layers and smoothing the surface. Moisturizers and creams can penetrate deeper into the skin for maximum hydration. 7) Here’s The Scoop: Antioxidants help protect the skin against free radicals. Free radicals cause havoc on the skin including fine lines, wrinkles and age spots. Protect your skin from free-radicals with a good topical cream with nutrients such as; Esther-C, Lipoic Acid, Q-10, and DMAE. By using these superb antioxidants they will help heal the skin and prevent further damage. Your skin will look years younger, smooth and beautifully youthful. 8) Skin Deep and a Youthful Complexion: Glycolic Acid is one of the most popular alpha hydroxy acids on the market. When applied to the skin it helps to exfoliate deeply, taking off dead cells, giving the skin a much younger appearance. What’s more, Glycolic Acid is a valuable addition to many of the super-antioxidant products on the market today. 9) Beauty Secrets: The secret to beautiful skin is all in the cleansing. If you use harsh products and do not cleanse the skin properly (nightly), your skin will suffer. Use cleansers and toners that are gentle, yet powerful enough to clean deep within the pores and the surface of the skin. 10) The Bottom Line: When cleansing the skin with superior products and using moisturizers with antioxidants and peptides, your skin will be able to repair itself. It’s never too late to start a good skin care program. Start this year with a positive outlook on your complexion, and take control of your skin’s future health. With all of the new technologies in skin care today… aging is optional!
