It's no secret that using pure, high-quality skin care treatments are the best path to healthy, youthful-looking skin, but, are you using yours properly?
For example, If you come home at the end of the day and think to yourself, my skin feels dry, I think I'll put some moisturizer on, and begin to massage cream into skin that hasn't been cleansed, you are doing your skin and your skin care products a disservice.
The same holds true if you never or rarely exfoliate, use a facial masque, or peel. Why? Cleansers rid the skin of surface dirt, but exfoliants, masques and peels cleanse deeply, removing makeup, dry skin cells, and pollution deeply.
--Don't be afraid to exfoliate....often. If you are using the right exfoliating polish, you should be able to safely exfoliate your skin every other day. 3-4 days a week of exfoliation decongests your pores, speeds cell turnover, and will prepare your skin to receive the active ingredients in your serums, collagen treatments, and other anti-aging products.
--Remember whatever goes on your skin first penetrates best, so whether you're fighting wrinkles, sun spots, or dry skin, the most active ingredients should be applied first. A good rule of thumb, is to smooth on products in order of density, from thinnest (antioxidant serum-elixir) to thickest (sunscreen or night cream). Eye Cremes and gels last.
--always let Serums and Elixirs rest on skin 2-3 minutes before applying moisturizer. It gives the treatments an opportunity to penetrate before mixing them with moisturizers. Allow your moisturizer to lock in the treatments.
This week we launched a new skin saving Elixir called, "Allure." The secret ingredient in our new elixir is Plant Stem Cells! Also infused into this delightful new elixir are high levels of Vitamin C and Hyaluronic Acid (incredible moisture binder). If you haven't heard of the power of plant stem cells, you will! The plant stem cells found in Allure are derived from Globularia Cordifolia, a species of flowering plants native to the mountains of central and southern Europe. Plant stem cells detoxify your skin by eliminating accumulated environmental wastes, encouraging skin cell turnover and supporting collagen--think of it as a spring cleaning for your skin.

We all know our skin ages, sometimes faster than we would like. There are two main reasons our skin ages known as Intrinsic and Extrinsic aging.
Intrinsic or Genetics - contribute to how fast we age. Most of us show signs of aging in our late 40's to early 50's.
Extrinsic or External Factors - These include environmental, free radical sun damage, and stress.
Free radical and sun damage accounts for 90% of early signs of aging. Seriously, it's that high!
