Winter Skin Solutions

Winter Skin Solutions:


The cold and windy wintertime is ahead of us and that can mean dry, flaky, and irritated skin. The majority of clients who wish to hydrate their skin are not sure how and when to use a serum as opposed to a cream; the overwhelming amount of moisturizers on the market can cause much confusion. With the correct professional treatments and targeted homecare, winter skin can be glowing, moisturized, and healthy!


First of all, there are some wonderful treatments that go hand in hand with winter, when the sun is not as bright and days not as long. While collagen facials can hydrate and replenish moisture, there are some specific treatments that can be added to a spa’s menu for the winter season. Many clients suffer from hyperpigmentation, varicose veins, and unsightly hair, all of which require a series of treatments. The best time to start clients on a series of six is while we are still in the cold, winter months.

ILLUMIN Skin Brightening Kit


Proven ingredients in a non-irritating formula allow the skin to return to an even base complexion with no downtime!

KEY INGREDIENTS:

By targeting different steps in the melanin production process, Illumin creates a rapid brightening effect without the risks associated with hydroquinone.
Alpha-Arbutin 4%
Arbutin has long been a trusted, non-hydroquinone ingredient for pigmentation concerns because of its ability to inhihibit tyrosinase. Illumin utilizes a premium-grade Alpha-Arbutin formulated at the strongest recommended percentage for the highest quality, efficacy and safety.
Acetyl Glycly Beta-Alanine
This newly discovered brightening peptide is gaining recognition as a safe and effective option for skin care. It works by targeting key enzymes to interfere with the production of melanosomes and down regulates melanin synthesis.
HGC Complex
This unique complex utilizes Hydroxyapatite to deliver brightening agents (a tripeptide, Glutathione and an amino acid, Cysteine) into the skin. This allows the brightening agents to begin working after they have been absorbed into the skin for better results. Together, these ingredients cause inactivation of tyrosinase and quench free-radicals that can feed into the tyrosinase activation and melanin formation.
Aminopropyl Ascorbyl Phosphate (AAP)
A highly stable form of vitamin C, AAP provides all of the benefi ts of L-Ascorbic Acid with an extended release for optimum absorption. The antioxidant benefi ts of vitamin C are known to protect against UV damage and can help even out the complexion. The stimulation of collagen will help improve the overall youthful appearance of the skin for patient satisfaction.

Anti-Aging Secret of Pomegranates Finally Revealed

Anti-Aging Secret of Pomegranates Finally Revealed: A molecule in pomegranates, generated by gut microflora, enables muscle cells to protect themselves against one of the major causes of aging.


Anti-Aging Secret of Pomegranates Finally Revealed

Posted on July 12, 2016, 6 a.m. in Anti-Aging Research Science Functional Foods GI-Digestive
A molecule in pomegranates, generated by gut microflora, enables muscle cells to protect themselves against one of the major causes of aging.
Until recently, the scientific evidence that pomegranates are truly the superfood that we’ve all been led to believe has been unsubstantial. To add to this, some questionable marketing tactics have raised doubts as well. A team of researchers from the Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (EPFL) and the life science company Amazentis decided to investigate the fruit more closely and discovered that there is a molecule within pomegranates that is transformed by microbes in the gut, allowing muscle cells to protect themselves against one of the major causes of aging.
Mitochondria are the powerhouses of cells, containing inner compartments that are no longer capable of carrying out their vital function as they age. The dysfunctional mitochondria accumulate within the cell since the cells are unable to recycle them. This affects the health of many tissues, including muscles, which become gradually weaker with time. This buildup of mitochondria is also believed to be a potential cause in other diseases of aging, such as Parkinson’s disease.
The researchers identified a molecule, urolithin A, that was able to reboot the cell’s ability to recycle the components of the dysfunctional mitochondria on it’s own. "It's the only known molecule that can relaunch the mitochondrial clean-up process, otherwise known as mitophagy," said Patrick Aebischer, co-author of the study. "It's a completely natural substance, and its effect is powerful and measurable."
The researchers at first tested their hypothesis on the nematode C. elegans (worms). This is a common approach for aging testing, as after just 8-10 days it’s already considered elderly. They found that the lifespan of worms exposed to urolithin A increased by more than 45% as compared to the control group. When they then tested the molecule on rodents, they found a large reduction in the number of mitochondria, which indicated that a hearty cellular recycling process was occurring. They also found that the older mice (around 2 years old), showed 42% more endurance when running than mice of the same age that were in the control group.
It should be noted that the fruit itself does not contain the miracle molecule, but rather its precursor. That molecule is converted into urolithin A by microbes that are present in the intestine. Therefore, there can be a wide range of urolithin A produced, depending on the species of animal, as well as the flora present in the gut microbiome. In some cases none at all will be produced, so the pomegranate juice would be ineffective. For these cases, however, the researchers are already working on developing a solution. They founded a start-up company, Amazentis, which has come up with a method to deliver finely calibrated doses of urolithin A and they’re currently conducting their first clinical trials testing humans.

How Many Products Do You Use Daily?

On average, women use 9 personal care products. Which exposes you to around 126 unique ingredients (give or take a dozen)… every day. And while Europe has banned over 1000 ingredients in personal care products, the United States has only banned 11 ingredients!

Wow, right?! That means there’s a good chance you’re being exposed to chemicals and perhaps even carcinogens in your skincare products every day!
