Thursday, October 31, 2013 3:00:15 PM America/New_York

Did you know that almost 50% of people in the world have Keratosis Pilaris? Keratosis Pilaris, which Dr. Oz refers lightheartedly to as "chicken bumps," are most noticeable on upper arms and thighs. This common skin condition is hereditary, however, there are many ways to control Keratosis Pilaris if you happen to have it. For instance using a scrub or peel or skincare products with glycolic acid can be very beneficial.

You can read more about Dr. Oz's tips on how to control Keratosis Pilaris here.

Q: Patti your Eye Cream has been doing magic on my crow’s feet! If I put it directly on my eyelids will it do anything?

A: So glad to hear that your enjoying the product! However, I would not recommend putting our eye cream directly on your eyelids. This is because our Revitalizing Eye Cream is specifically designed to target under eye and not upper eye issues.

To achieve the best results when using the eye cream, continue with your current regimen, and make sure to pat/dap the cream underneath your eyes and around any remaining crow’s feet.

Sleep Deprivation and Aging

Wednesday, October 23, 2013 3:00:31 PM America/New_York

Research studies have discovered that poor sleep habits can accelerate the signs of aging on skin by weakening the ability of our skin to repair itself at night. Pump the brakes on aging by following these simple tips to form better sleeping habits!

Consistency is key! Try to develop a sleep schedule where you go to bed and wake up the same time every night. It might be harder to stick to during the weekends, but at least during the weekdays you can train your body to become accustomed to a set schedule. It will help you feel much more alert when you wake up in the morning and have a better rest at night.

Yoga at Night. Yoga isn’t just for early risers! Try devoting half an hour before bed to yoga or basic stretching. Studies show that relaxing exercises such as these can help improve your sleep.

Stay away from caffeine! Research shows that caffeine can have effects on your sleep up to 10 hours after drinking it. If you’re looking to have a cup of tea or another beverage before bed, make sure to keep it decaf.

Recover lost hours over the weekend. Our schedules during the week are usually packed and sometimes getting a full 8 hours just seems like a luxury. If that’s the case, prioritize sleep on the weekends and catch up on all the lost hours from the week.

Following these simple suggestions will help take care of your face, body and mind.

Skin Risks of Running in the Winter

Monday, October 21, 2013 5:00:04 PM America/New_York

Q: When the weather turns cold, runners battle dryness from head to toe (and in surprising places--even scalp, cheeks, lips, under the ears, armpits, shin and feet). What are some of the skin risks of running in the colder months?

A: Incorporating running into your workout routine is a great way to stay in shape. Running provides a wide range of health benefits, but if you’re an outdoor runner, the winter air can be very harsh on your skin. If you live in an area where the temperature during the winter often drops below 32 degrees Fahrenheit, your skin can be very vulnerable to frostbite. If treadmills during the winter definitely aren’t for you, the next best thing is to make sure that you moisturize your skin well before you head out for your run. Our Rejuvenating Day Cream and Retexturizing Body Butter can help your skin beat the cold.

Also, if you find yourself having cracked lips during runs, try our Revitalizing Eye cream! It may sound strange, but the proprietary and active ingredient Aquabeautine XL® only dissolves the dead skin cells while allowing living cells to thrive and flourish. You can read more about it here.
