Inside Your Skin

We all face aging of our skin, body and mind. But we have to let that aging win every battle. A lot of what we experience as aging is caused by environmental or lifestyle factors that are within our power to control. Even if many years have gone by since these factors began to work on our skin, we can promote healing and reversal by using the same mechanisms our skin healed with when we were younger.

An excellent example is hyaluronic acid. When we are infants our bodies are full of hyaluronic acid and our skin is amazingly soft, supple, and moist. As we mature, our body loses the ability to manufacture as much hyaluronic acid and, after age 40, we really have a lot less. This doesn’t just affect our skin tone, hyaluronic acid is responsible for keeping our joints moving smoothly, our eyes hydrated, and many other integral systems working the way they should.

In addition to being a moisturizer of unparalleled capability, able to hold 100x its own weight in water, hyaluronic acid also promotes collagen production. Collagen is absolutely critical to beautiful skin as it is responsible for holding the skin cells together in a flexible and supple layout without sagging and wrinkling. With sufficient hyaluronic acid and collagen, you have stunning skin. With too little you begin to develop fine lines, pouchy areas, discoloration and sagging. Finally deep wrinkles

You don’t have to be held hostage by the process of diminishing hyaluronic acid. Mango Madness Skin Care has developed a dual weight, pure hyaluronic acid serum that can renew skin elasticity while providing the deep hydration that keeps skin cells plump and healthy. This serum sinks into your skin penetrating through to the deeper cells and providing them with the building blocks to stay beautiful and fight the wrinkles that come with aging.

What Is Your Night-Time Beauty Routine?

nightWe’ve talked to a lot of women and routines vary greatly from one woman to the next. For instance, do you shower before bedtime, upon rising, or both? Do you spend a couple of minutes using a mask on your face and fighting the tough skin on your heels, or do you save that for one day a week and just have a time-saving washup in the shower? Do you soak luxuriously in the tub to relax away the stresses of the day? It’s your night time, do it any way you want!

These are the elements that we found most women shared in common in their nighttime routines:

1) Bath or shower before bedtime.

2) Facial cleansing with some type of cleanser made for the face, wipes, or a beauty bar soap.

3) Some form of moisturizer or anti-aging preparation applied to the face before sleep.

4) Some type of hand lotion and foot/heel lotion applied to the feet before sleep

We would caution women not to use a hard bar soap on their faces. Bar soaps contain ingredients that can dry your skin or irritate it. We like a cleanser made just for the face, as mild as possible. We recommend Rose Hip Seed Oil Cleanser Then an exfoliator once or twice a week.

For moisturizers we found that women varied quite a bit starting with women who swore by petroleum jelly to seal in moisture and others who paid upwards of $110 an ounce for products containing exotic animal-based substances. We understand the rationale of sealing in moisture with petroleum jelly but it’s not the best choice. It films over pores, collects dirt and grime, and is not absorbed well. As for the more exotic offerings these often came with no medical claims or studies supporting their advertising slogans on the label. A high price tag is not a guarantee of effectiveness.

The most effective skin creams were ones that contain hyaluronic acid, a proven moisturizer and skin cream ingredient that promotes healing. Another significant ingredient is Retinol, a derivative of Vitamin A. Both promote rejuvenation of skin cells and encourage the production of collagen.

Hyaluronic Acid – Why Is it Essential For Skin?

The research into the properties of Hyaluronan or Hyaluronic Acid are so numerous that Wikipedia alone lists 82 reference documents to support its article. It is considered an essential ingredient in good skin care and anti-aging products with good reason. Studies have shown that Hyaluronic Acid plays a part in wound care and scar prevention and it is even considered a part of diabetic wound therapy.

What makes it so very important for skin and wound healing? The key thing to understand is that your body needs and uses Hyaluronic Acid daily whether or not you use any products containing it. Your body requires it for skin connectivity and renewal and for healthy joints and other connective tissue. One third of all your body’s store of Hyaluronan is “turned over” every day as your body renews cells damaged by age or external factors.

As a key component in connective tissue, Hyaluronic Acid is part of what keeps your skin supple, smooth, and not drooping or wrinkled. Preparations containing Hyaluronic Acid are smoothed onto skin and absorbed readily into the cellular layers boosting their ability to repair themselves and maintain an attractive level of hydration.

If so many skin care preparations contain Hyaluronic Acid, does it matter which one to use? The simple answer is yes, and this is why. Hyaluronic Acid is one ingredient in skin care but it may be a tiny fraction of the over all lotion you are using. There may be fillers, fragrances, preservatives, coloring agents and many other ingredients listed on the label. You want to buy an anti-aging cream that has a short ingredient list and a better percentage of active ingredients. You also do not want your skin care products to contain parabens, phthalates, fragrance, triclosans, or formaldehyde forming agents. Those can be potentially harmful and even contribute to aging.

That’s why we recommend the natural goodness of Mango Madness Skin Care’s Hyaluronic Acid Serum, Hydrospherex™ . You get the maximum therapeutic amount of Hyaluronic Acid with no animal testing or potentially risky adulterants.

Why Does Complexion Matter?

We hear people talking about female beauty and they speak of someone’s beautiful eyes. Or the dazzling smile or hair color. But, as any beauty queen can tell you, it only takes one pimple to change your whole level of confidence and self-esteem. It’s not like the day your hair doesn’t behave so you put it in a French twist and wear classy earrings. Nope, because of the skin thickening and the coloration of a blemish, really covering them up is not as easy as you would think. So complexion doesn’t get talked about as much but it is very important.

It is more logical than you would think because really, your skin is your biggest beauty asset. It covers every inch of you and subtly or not-so-subtly communicates details about you to other people. The state of your skin and coloring can let someone know you haven’t been well. The way your skin looks can signal your age to people you meet. Your skin can even communicate whether or not you are a smoker.

With that much power over your looks it just makes sense to treat your skin very well and make sure it looks its best. You want your skin to be healthy, supple, radiant and as unlined as possible. You want moisturized skin, not “sandpaper” or dried skin.

The best way to do that is to get plenty of water to drink, good nutrition and your fair share of a good night’s sleep. Then, choose a cleansing product that is gentle but thorough, and a moisturizer that contains jut the ingredients you need and none of the ingredients you don’t need or want. So we suggest Peptide 6® for it’s combination of powerful collagen renewing peptides plus hyaluronic acid, jojoba oil, apricot kernel oil, and squalane. And not a single paraben or phthalate or artificial fragrance! All of what you need, and none of what you don’t! Try Peptide 6® today.

4 Tips to A Prettier Neck

Many women have flawless skin on their faces but neglect their necks. Sometimes it is just because they don’t know what to do. It is not that difficult. Like your face, there are things your neck needs to look its best and providing those elements will make all the difference.

1) Protection from the sun. We are sure that comes as no surprise because it is the absolute number one rule of any skin care. You don’t have to layer scarves over turtlenecks or grow your hair longer but remember that the skin on your neck needs as much protection as your face. So use a combination of clothing and sunscreen to protect your neck whenever you are out of doors.

2) Cleanse and exfoliate – but gently. Did you know the skin on your neck is thinner than most other skin on your body? That’s because the skin on your neck is similar to your elbows and knees in that it has to move and stretch regularly. You cannot nod or turn your head without stretching the skin on your neck. So do take the time to cleanse with a gentle cleanser on a regular basis.

3) Match your face. If you are using a foundation makeup make sure to feather it in as your fingertips go down your neck. It looks unnatural for your face to be one color and your neck another. You can gently brush on a little bronzer in the front where your neck usually would get the most sun. It will look natural if you do it sparingly, and will help hide any imperfections.

4) Use a good moisturizer twice daily. We  recommend Necquelle because it is formulated for your neck. Necquelle has just the right amount of unique ingredients plus peptides and hyaluronic acid to firm and smooth the delicate skin from your chin to your cleavage.

Give Necquelle a try and we bet you will love it! Like all our products, Necquelle contains NO parabens and is not tested on animals. Necquelle Neck Firming and Smoothing Cream.

Why Fight Aging?

Society today seems to be of two minds: rush to get constant cosmetic procedures, or accept yourself as you are and look down on anyone who gets a peel or a lift. The trouble is, both of those directions are extreme. One thing society has always embraced is the look of youth. Neither of the extremes work to make you retain a youthful look. The other thing to consider is health. Looking youthful is one thing, but being healthy and retaining your youthful looks is much more desirable.

Esthetician-AdviceThat’s where recent science comes in. As medical science gets more and more knowledgeable about the aging process, we learn what we can do to stop the damage that happens to cells. And, as any article on skin damage can tell you, a lot of what we call “aging” is really the cumulative effects of lifestyle and environmental damage. Sun damage, smoking, harsh cleansers, chemicals such as parabens and formaldehyde, all play a part in how our skin cells breakdown. The result that we call “aging” would happen much more slowly and less dramatically if we could simply avoid all of those causes.

So how can we help our skin look and feel its most healthy without resorting to surgical methods or injecting artificial substances or toxins under our skin? It’s more simple than you might think. Several ingredients in medical grade skin care can help boost natural skin renewal and aid in collagen production and moisture retention. It is the drying and depletion of skin cell moisture that causes skin to loose suppleness and form wrinkles. When that process is reversed, skin is smoother, more elastic.

A good option for older skin is Peptide 6®. By utilizing six powerful peptides found in your skin naturally, new wrinkle formation is inhibited, and existing lines diminished. Collagen production is enhanced, and the hyaluronic acid in Peptide 6® is a potent moisturizer helping the skin stay hydrated the way young skin does. It’s really all about restoring health to your skin.

If you have not tried Peptide 6® this is your chance. Fast, free shipping and a money back guarantee make it easy. The results will soon make it your favorite face cream!

Peptides – Big Word, Simply Effective

If you are like me you start to fall asleep when people begin talking about peptides, amino acid and protein chains, and the function of the human skin. The skin is the largest organ in our bodies and it is basically a huge layer of connective tissue that exists to protect us from the elements and our environment. Peptides are a part of the process by which the skin maintains and renews itself. The skin needs to hold water in its cells in order to not lie loose and flat. As skin cells slough off and are replace it is the building blocks of cells, the peptides that help tell the cell what to do next and help rebuild the collagen which is the connective tissue that keeps the cells together.

A peptide-based cream like Peptide 6® is changes the chemistry of facial creams and anti-aging preparations because it mimics your skin’s own natural way of nourishing and rebuilding itself. Instead of some waxy cream meant to keep your skin protected from outside damage, Peptide 6® uses the power of natural body proteins to penetrate the top layer of skin and begin to promote healing and renewal from the inside out. The hyaluronic acid in the formula restores moisture to thirsty skin cells and plumps and smooths dry skin so that your skin looks and feels better naturally.

So don’t use extreme methods to restore youth. Trust the skin cream that helps your skin do what it does best naturally and restore your facial skin to the looks you had when you were younger.

For best results, use Peptide 6® twice a day on fresh clean skin before you apply anything else. It will help your makeup go on more smoothly and will work throughout the day or night to minimize wrinkles, reduce fine lines, and moisturize your skin thoroughly! Try the power of peptides and hyaluronic acid today!

Purity Matters in Skin Care

Here at Mango Madness Skin Care we believe that consumers get more savvy every day. And we also believe that the more informed the customer is, the more likely she is to buy from us. Why is that? Because we put in the ingredients that matter, and we leave out the ingredients that might be harmful or just act as fillers. Lets look for one moment at our ingredients in our best hyaluronic acid moisturizer and a leading brand:

lab_beakerOurs: Squalane, Hyaluronic Acid, Xylitylglucoside,Anhydroxilitol, Xylitol, Other: Purified water, Polyacrilate 13, Polysorbate 20, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexyglycerine.

 

lab_beaker3Leading competitor: Water, Glycerin, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Ternifolia Seed Oil, Sodium Hyaluronate (Hyaluronic Acid), Calcium Ascorbate (Ester-C), Dimethicone, Organic Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), Retinyl Palmitate (Vitamin A), Allantoin, Panthenol, Xanthan Gum, Ammonium Acryloyldimethyltaurate/VP Copolymer, Cetyl Alcohol, Stearyl Alcohol, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin, natural oils.

The truth is, if you throw a ton of little ingredients into the beaker, you don’t have much room for the main ingredient. The jar is the same size so you can’t have the same amount of beneficial therapeutic hyaluronic acid if you are too busy fitting everything else into that same jar and selling it to the customer as a hyaluronic acid moisturizer. Consumers don’t fall for that anymore.

So we wanted you to see the facts. We can tell you how kissable and pretty your face is going to be thanks to the power of hyaluronic acid moisturizing, but we want you to know why ours is more effective. We aren’t hear to do any hocus pocus or double speak. If you aren’t sure about our products vs. some other brand, read the ingredients. We’re ready and proud of our formulas. Is the other brand? You decide.

The Building Blocks of Skin

If you follow the anti-aging beauty industry you hear a lot about hyaluronic acid injections, collagen injections, and even fat injections into lips, cheeks, and areas of the forehead that have lines. The effort that all these injections have in common is to make the skin look fuller so that it will not show wrinkles and lines. But how does the skin lose fullness to begin with, and is there a way to restore the skin’s natural fullness and suppleness?

To understand the needs of your skin, the first thing you must be introduced to is collagen. Collagen is one of the most abundant proteins in the human body and it is what connective tissue is made of. It holds together skin, ligaments, cartilage and more. Anywhere the body needs something to be flexible and smooth, you will find collagen. You will also find hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic Acid has a very specific role to play in the renewal of collagen and the body’s ability to retain moisture necessary for smooth functioning.

When we are young, the body has plenty of collagen and hyaluronic acid and knees work smoothly, faces look unlined and radiant. As time goes by, collagen stores are depleted and the body makes less collagen and hyaluronic acid. How can that be reversed. First, you can have collagen directly injected where you want it. There are several drawbacks to that method. We’ve all seen actresses with bloated, unnatural looking faces and heard the stories of unexpected infections or injections that migrate. There is also the bruising and pain, and worst, the treatment is temporary.

But there are ways of encouraging the body to create collagen. One is to use a hyaluronic acid moisturizer which both promotes collagen production and restores moisture. That’s using the skin’s own natural method. The other is to use a face cream that includes peptides. Peptides are amino acids that are necessary for certain chemical exchanges to take place in the human body. When you utilize these peptides on skin, they help the skin to renew itself just the way it did when it was younger. No bruising, no swelling, no unsightly misshapen results. Just skin, feeling and acting much more like itself 20 years ago.

So get the peptides and the hyaluronic acid building blocks working for you, helping your skin to work just the way nature intended it with Peptide 6® Wrinkle Cream.deep-wrinkle-reducer You’ll be glad you did!

Give Thirsty Skin Maximum Moisture

If you have dry skin you have probably run your fingers across it and wondered what it would take to make it smooth and silky. That’s an important concern because it does not just affect your tactile impressions of your skin. When your face feels dry, scratchy, flaky and parched the surface smoothness is only an indicator of problems deeper down. Skin cells feel rough or flaky when they are depleted of fluids and they dry out. As they dry, they crumple inward and lose their natural flexibility. Cracks appear and damage begins as the face sags and wrinkles. We think of the appearance that results from that process as “aging” when it is really more a function of “drying.” When you think of it that way it is kind of amazing isn’t it? You could keep your skin young if you successfully kept it hydrated! That’s really how simple it is.

When we are young, there are processes in place in our skin which keeps the skin moist and renews the hydration in cells. As we get older, starting in our twenties, the skin loses some of its ability to produce collagen and moisture is lost. Then the damage of dry skin begins to form lines and wrinkles around the mouth, around the eyes. Botox works because it keeps the skin from moving so it doesn’t wrinkle. But wouldn’t you rather have skin that moved naturally and didn’t wrinkle because it is well moisturized? Of course you would.

paraben-free-face-creamScientists have spent decades researching the normal process of skin aging and they discovered some natural chemicals that work with the skin to keep it moisturized and help the skin repair and renew itself. Two of the most effective ones, Hyaluronic Acid and Squalane are in our Maximum Moisture™™ face cream. As a matter of fact, Maximum Moisture™ contains the maximum therapeutic dose of Hyaluronic Acid. That is the amount that has been deemed to be effective for your skin. Less is not enough, more won’t accomplish anything extra.

How does it work? When Maximum Moisture™ is applied to your skin, it penetrates deep into the cells bringing hydration and restoring flexibility and suppleness to your skin. But it also does more. It is an ingredient that your body needs to boost collagen production so not only does it moisturize, it encourages your skins natural production of the collagen that young skin produces on its own. That’s why regular applications of Maximum Moisture work wonders for your skin! If you are ready to begin the healing process click here and learn more about Maximum Moisture™.
