Skin is Skin – Or Is It?

Skin, beautiful skin. It is the largest organ of the body and covers our entire body with a soft, smooth surface that keeps us waterproof, repels germs, and protects us from all of the things that bump up against us every day.

HA_firming_creamOur skin is our first line of defense against environmental pollution and toxins that exist naturally in the ground, in plants, in the air. Life as we know it would not be possible without this protective covering. And, it’s beautiful and soft to the touch.

Naturally we want to protect it, nourish it, hydrate it, and clean it. We want to maintain it as well as we can so it continues to do such a good job for us. It would be easy to believe that we could just clean it the way we do our car when we run through a car wash. One cleaning agent, some spinning brushes, and then a rinse and we’re done. Right? No.

As complex as our car is, our skin is much more specialized. We are not made of hardened metal and plastic, and we cannot tolerate the type of treatment a car gets in a car wash. If we subject our skin to rough treatment, it thickens, hardens, and creates calluses and a leathery surface. It does this to protect itself but the results aren’t pretty. That is why so many products are sold to make feet look more attractive. Skin that takes a daily beating, reveals that abuse in its surface roughness and cracking.

So how should we best maintain our skin? First by simply evaluating it. It only takes a moment of glancing to realize how delicate the skin is on your eyelids and around your eyes. It almost seems entirely different from the larger, waxy pores of your nose. And it bears little resemblance to the skin that stretches and folds to accommodate the movement of your elbows.

The next way of looking at skin is by the environment it is exposed to. The skin on your belly or the small of your back does not get the amount of exposure that your hands and face do. Your hands and face are exposed daily to sunlight, germs and environmental hazards that the skin under your clothes never comes near. So that skin needs more focused cleansing.

What does every inch of your skin need? Moisturizer. We use a hand cream on our hands and a face cream on our face because they need more moisturizer than most other parts. For the face, the best creams are ones that help the skin renew its cells with the hydrating power of Hyaluronic Acid and the cell-renewal capabilities of peptides. Our best cream to accomplish that is our medical-grade Peptide 6®.

Remember how delicate the skin around your eyes is? Sometimes, our eyes just seem to need a little something extra to renew and refresh them. That’s where our Vitamin K cream, Refresh Me™ can work wonders.

The most important thing, is to remember to care for and cherish that oh-so-important organ – your skin!

Why We Don’t Provide Samples

Women are used to receiving samples in almost every conceivable area of life. Want to try a new perfume? Stop by the fragrance counter and get some little tester vials. Want to try a new shade of makeup? Your brand probably has small sample sizes so you can try it on and see if it covers like they say it does.

samplesAnd, like most manufacturers, we get asked from time to time if we provide samples. But skin care is not like makeup. Skin does not age over night and aging cannot be counter-acted in one application of a product. When peptides penetrate the layers of a skin cell, they help your skin renew the way it did automatically when you were in your twenties. They stimulate the production of collagen which is the connective tissue that keeps skin looking smooth and prevents sagging. These are changes that are occurring on a cellular level and on a day to day basis. Slowly, lines and webbing in your skin begin to fill in and smooth out. Daily, the applications of peptides and hyaluronic acid tell your skin to produce collagen and retain moisture which keeps new wrinkles from forming and reduces the severity of deeper lines.

As you continue to treat your skin with high grade skin care therapies you will see your skin looking fresher, looking younger, with more even color and less sagging and drooping. Soon, you look at a picture of yourself from just six months ago and you are startled at the difference. Friends are commenting on how lovely you look and hinting that you “had something done.” You can’t achieve that overnight by putting a little dab of a sample product along your chin line. It is a commitment to enhancing your natural defenses against aging that begins to make a difference.

So how can you try our products without a risk of wasting your money? That’s where our 90-day satisfaction guarantee comes in. Yes, you heard right, 90 days. We have one of the longest “try it” guarantees in the industry. We know the changes don’t occur over night so we want you to be sure you are satisfied. We even have a specialist ready to help you if you think you might not be using it right or don’t feel you’re getting the full benefit. We’ll discuss your application methods, frequency and timing and see if you need a personalized plan that would be more effective.

Why do we go to all that trouble? Because you are worth it. We want our customers to be the most loyal and happy customers in the world. So we have created products that work, stellar customer service, fast as lightning shipping, and a great guarantee. Are we forgetting anything? Look over our website and our products and see!

 

Creating an At-Home Spa Day

What is the biggest thing stopping today’s woman from spending the day at a spa? If you said, “price,” you are way off base. Spas can indeed be expensive but for most women the problem is getting enough time. Time tends to be devoted to business or family or creative projects and pretty soon a woman has reached the end of her day and there’s enough time for a bath or a cup of tea. Tell her she needs to carve out 8 hours of time for massage, facial, manicure, steam room, lunch and drive time, and she will probably say something like, “Oh, I wish!”

Nevertheless, we do need to take a step back from time to time and give ourselves some wellness time. If you recognize yourself in the description of the busy woman, how about this? Set aside some basic supplies for an at home spa treatment. Maybe a special fluffy towel and robe, your favorite soft jazz CD, and some Mango Souffle Body Cream with shea butter. Then, either plan to spend an hour enjoying your spa-time, or let it happen spontaneously. Finish up a project and before you get dragged into the next one, go to the linen closet, take out your spa supplies and pour yourself a relaxing bath or maybe jump into a brisk shower. When you come out towel yourself off lightly and then pamper your skin with the Mango Souffle Body Cream. Let the shea butter, aloe vera and rich, hydrating hyaluronic acid soak into your skin erasing any dryness. If you have rough elbows, heels or knees, rub a little extra into those “trouble spots” and let it sink in.

Now that you are fresh and clean and your body is luxuriating in the Mango Souffle Body Cream, put on your relaxation CD and climb onto a chaise or into a recliner and close your eyes. You don’t have to stay like that for hours. You can decide for yourself how much time or how little you have. But be sure to give yourself a minimum of 15 minutes to a half-hour to just breathe. You’ll love your at-home spa time and it will do you a world of good.
