age reversal

Stop Aging Dead With Bio-Enzyme

An enzyme inside every one of your body’s skin cells works 24/7 to help stimulate new cell growth…

An enzyme with the power to stop aging dead in its tracks…

And even restore your skin’s youthful glow!

Mind you, it’s not an overnight discovery–make no mistake!

It has taken over 20 long years of research!

You see, the world’s most brilliant doctors and scientists have been working tirelessly to unravel this enzyme’s mysteries…

Experimenting and testing new and unusual ways to harness its potential.

But they’re facing an uphill battle…

With Big Pharma standing in their way…

Because when the enzyme’s power is fully realized…

It will turn the $445 billion beauty industry upside down!

This skin cell enzyme doesn’t just determine how quickly your skin ages…

It also determines the appearance of each new skin cell.

And its applications go far beyond skin care…

And the world’s top scientists agree it has the potential to reverse cellular aging itself!

Recently, a team of scientists discovered a key mechanism in cellular degeneration and aging

The mechanism was identical to one in a powerful immune-building plant

A plant that’s been used in traditional medicine for thousands of years.

This plant is a giant in anti-aging therapy that supports:

  • The breakdown of your subcutaneous fat
  • Regulation of your blood sugar levels
  • Healing of your wounds, and…
  • A healthy immune system

This age-defying wonder plant makes your skin as resilient as it was in your 20s…

And its benefits have been confirmed by more than 100 independent clinical studies

But what’s even more amazing is its power to rejuvenate your skin cells.

The reason the plant works so well is it contains a one-of-a kind bio-enzyme…with unlimited cell regrowth potential.

This bio-enzyme works just like the enzyme inside your skin cells…

But it has none of the skin cell limitations…

Meaning it can support firmer, smoother, even-toned skin…

With a youthful glow–just like you see on kids’ faces!

Clinical tests prove your skin can be rejuvenated by up to 30% in just a few weeks!

No doubt…this discovery is set to revolutionize skin care…

Plus, it doesn’t involve expensive treatments or surgery…

No harmful side effects…

And it works just for everyone, no matter your age.

Unfortunately, you won’t hear about this bio-enzyme from your dermatologist…

Because it’s a groundbreaking research by independent-minded doctors.

You see, most doctors are captives to the profiteering mainstream healthcare system…

They simply don’t have the time to do their own research, or to test new theories and ideas!

They are handed new medications rubber-stamped by the FDA and other regulators…

And told they can choose between bottle A or bottle B…

Each with their own toxic side effects.

But the discovery of the bio-enzyme’s unique beautifying properties is light years ahead of conventional skin therapies.

It enhances your skin cells and rejuvenates your complexion…

And it’s based on the science that won the 2009 Nobel Prize for Medicine.

You see, inside your skin cells, on a microscopic level, your DNA is slowly loosening

It’s the aging process…which you can see in tired, sagging skin, as it grows thinner and loses its elasticity.

When you’re young, your DNA is very vibrant…

And your skin cells are firm…

But as you age, your DNA structure naturally loosens…

Which drives your whole body aging.

The rate at which DNA loosens is controlled by tiny caps on the end your DNA strands…

The tiny caps are called telomeres.

Telomeres

Telomeres work like the plastic tips on the end of your shoe laces

Protecting the ends of your DNA.

Each time your skin cells divide, your telomeres get shorter.

Shorter telomeres expose your skin to decay, which is another way of saying ‘skin aging‘.

So, maintaining telomere length is the key to younger-looking skin.

Now, in 2009, Dr. Elizabeth Blackburn of the University of California received the Nobel Prize of Medicine for her discovery of telomerase.

Telomerase is the skin cell enzyme that helps support telomeres…

Meaning telomerase holds the key to delaying or even reversing the cellular aging process.

Once Dr. Blackburn made her breakthrough…

Doctors and scientists began working tirelessly to come up with a way to increase telomerase production in the body.

Every new breakthrough led to even more questions…

Then in the spring of 2017, an elite group of researchers revealed the next step in the jigsaw puzzle.

After years of rigorous testing…

They discovered a faint signal being transmitted from deep inside skin cell DNA…

A signal they would have missed, had they not have been looking in exactly the right spot at the right time.

They traced the signal to its source, allowing them to decipher it clearly…

And realized they had stumbled upon a DNA repair code being sent between 2 proteins.

The team wondered curiously as to whether increasing the proteins in the skin cells would boost the output of telomerase.

So they tested their idea on mice…

And the results were simply mind-blowing…

We can’t tell the difference between the tissues from an old mouse that is two years old versus a young mouse that is 3-4 months old“- Prof. David Sinclair

The team’s discovery proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that skin cells can produce much more telomerase if exposed to the right stimulants..

And according to the project leader Prof. Sinclair…

They can even “reverse aspects of aging within just one week of treatment“.

The team’s dedication inspired anti-aging doctors across the world…

And it even solved a unique problem for NASA.

You see, for NASA, astronauts’ health is top priority. That’s why NASA awarded the team the prestigious NASA iTech award for their research.

NASA scientists had been searching for a way to keep astronauts’skin healthy during a four-year mission to Mars.

See, even on short missions, astronauts experience accelerated aging from cosmic radiation

And on a trip to Mars, the situation would be far worse--5% of the astronauts’skin cell would die…

Their chances of developing skin cancer would near 100%.

The teams’ discovery of telomerase activators paved the way for new space age skin therapies that potentially stop cell decay, or ‘aging’.

NASA has since been helping the real medical professionals loosen Big Pharma’s grip on your health…

By joining the doctors and scientists to develop genuine anti-aging therapies.

The inspirational work of the team led to another major breakthrough in understanding telomerase…

A New Breakthrough in Skin Rejuvenation

In the spring of 2021, Julian Chen, a Professor of Biochemistry at Arizona State University decoded another skin cell signal that slows production of the telomerase enzyme!

He found that telomerase has a built-in “braking system” that limits the overall activity of the telomerase enzyme.

From Professor Chen’s findings, a system for slowing down cell regeneration had been found…

And it was only a matter of time before skin cell biggest mystery was solved.

Identifying the brake signal for the telomerase enzyme meant there was only one hurdle left to overcome…

How to Tell Your Cells to Keep Growing Younger

See, to keep your skin cells looking younger…

Telomerase levels had to be maintained. But keeping the levels high enough to avoid triggering the brakes was a whole new challenge.

Every time a new piece of the puzzle was discovered, a greater mystery unfolded…

Remember, first, the scientists established that telomere length controls aging

Then, they found the enzyme that keeps telomeres long–the telomerase...

What followed was pinpointing the proteins that feed the telomerase…

And then, they finally found the braking signal for telomerase…

It seemed like there was no end to the quest.

But then came the epiphany–the “Eureka” moment!

You see, up until this point…

Scientists had been trying to get skin cells to produce more telomerase by themselves.

They saw similarities between the enzymes in skin cells and a unique bio-enzyme at work within a powerful immune-building plant…

The bio-enzyme helps stimulate telomerase inside your skin cells in order to keep your telomeres long…

And in the cases where telomeres have been significantly worn down…

A youthful complexion is restored through bio-enzyme stimulation!

Turns out, you can use your own skin cells’ resources to regress your skin’s appearance by up to 30%…

And look younger by over 10 years!

So, what’s the secret?

A gradual use of the bio-enzyme will help maintain your skin cells’ telomerase reserves…

Help prevent any of your skin’s resources from being used up…

And support a healthy immune system, too.

The formula that contains the bio-enzyme brings out a more youthful glow from within.

Whereas most anti-aging treatments cover up and conceal your skin, this formula focus on bringing out the very best appearance of your skin cells.

To get the best results from the bio-enzyme, the research team at Healthycell created the perfect environment for it to thrive by combining it with 7 powerful skin cell rejuvenators

Each one loads a unique set of potential benefits.

The researchers called them “The Magnificent 7

They include:

Your Skin’s Own Stress Reliever–Teprenone–The Defender…

Teprenone

A potent extract that activates the genes to maintain the length of your telomeres.

Teprenone is a great cell-strengthening all-rounder that supports…

  • Increased skin cell moisture
  • Blocking foreign bacteria and debris
  • Firmness and elasticity
  • Smoother skin texture, and
  • Resistance to cell decay

Plus, clinical trials confirm its ability to help combat skin damage.

Over a period of 30 days

100% of women using teprenone felt an increased level of moisture in their skin…

100% noticed a smoother appearance in their skin tone…

More than 90% noticed a decrease in pore size, and…

75% noticed fine lines vanishing.

Even better, teprenone supports protection of your cells in a way very few people know about…

It helps enhance the power of antioxidants!

You see, antioxidants protect your telomeres from oxidative stress…which is endemic.

Stronger antioxidants provide a better natural defense…

Keeping your skin healthy and glowing with color.

Teprenone works with the bio-enzyme to keep your skin cells balanced and stress-free…

And helps support proteins that protect against skin cell damage, besides aiding in telomerase production.

And when the proteins are combined with the second cell rejuvenator…

Baicalin

Baicalin

They form the base of a new protein cocktail for your skin.

Baicalin is a plant used in traditional Chinese medicine for centuries…

And it’s known to support…

  • Antioxidant effects
  • Healthy sleep
  • Anti-inflammatory properties
  • Relaxation and pain-relief, and…
  • Destressing skin cells

Baicalin works by supporting fibroblasts–the cells that provide structure, strength, and resilience to your skin.

Telomere Length and Your DNA

In a recent study, researchers blasted skin cells with UV-A radiation–one of the kinds of harmful rays from the sun.

They found skin cells without Baicalin had their telomere length reduced by almost 70%

Baicalin is thus used to fortify the bio-enzyme and offer protection against UV-A damage.

There is yet another cell rejuvenator that helps combat UV-B rays.

Natives of Peru call it “The Sacred Herb of the Rain-forest“.

It’s rare to find, but its restorative qualities are incomparable.

I’m talking about Uncaria Tomentosa(AC-11).

Uncaria Tomentosa

Peru is one of the 10 most biodiversity-rich, or ‘mega diverse’ countries in the world.

The native Ashaninka tribe use the healing herbs for nearly all their medicinal needs…

And they value the protection of their skin very highly!

In fact, 57% of all their medicines are for treating the skin…

And Uncaria tomentosa ranks top on that list…

And for good reasons…

In one lab research, cells were treated with an extract from Uncaria tomentosa…and then subjected to UV-B radiation.

The cells treated with Uncaria tomentosa lived 201% longer than untreated cells.

Uncaria tomentosa protects your skin from the outside…

Ensuring your skin’s inner layers are not damaged by the Sun’s Rays.

And unlike chemical sunscreens, Uncaria tomentosa doesn’t trigger free radical damage when exposed to sunlight.

And it doesn’t stop there!

Uncaria tomentosa also works at the DNA level, too…

Repairing DNA damage and energizing skin cells.

Studies prove Uncaria tomentosa activates telomerase

Signaling your telomeres to grow longer and produce younger cells.

In placebo-controlled study in Sweden, a group of volunteers taking Uncaria tomentosa for 6 weeks experienced significantly less DNA damage and more DNA repair.

Clearly, Uncaria tomentosa is an ideal partner for the bio-enzyme in protecting against the biggest skin-aging factor–the sun.

And it gets even better because…

To extend cell life even further and provide the bio-enzyme with additional moisture…

The scientists included a large dose of Hyaluronic Acid–The Hydrator.

Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is nature’s moisturizer

It can hold up to 1,000 times its own weight in water, giving your skin the smooth, taut, fullness of youth.

Adding HA to the bio-enzyme supports the activation and delivery of

Squalane–The Fortifier…

Squalane

This wonderworking oil forms an impenetrable barrier to lock the moisture inside your skin cells.

It works like a cellular reservoir for replenishing skin moisture.

It’s an excellent moisturizer that leaves your skin hydrated, plump, and soft.

Its texture is super-light and non-greasy…

When it reaches the deepest layer of your skin, it forms a barrier against water loss…

Restoring moisture and suppleness to your face…

And reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Up and until your 20s, your skin produces squalane in large amounts

But when levels begin to dwindle as you age, your skin becomes much drier.

In a double-blind, placebo-controlled Japanese clinical trial

Twenty three women saw a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and crow’s feet…while experiencing increased smoothness…

After 8 weeks using squalane, their skin became softer and more glowing, besides attaining overall firmness.

But to really attain the ultimate skin firmness…

Astragalus must kick in…

Astragalus

And it provides support on so many levels, benefiting everything it comes into contact with.

It supports HA and collagen production in your skin cells…

Restores the appearance of youthful firmness and elasticity.

In a recent 8-week clinical trial, Korean scientists applied astragalus extract directly to the skin and found that…

It slowed the breakdown of skin cell elasticity by 97.5%

And inhibited the enzyme that breaks down collagen by 99%

Proving beyond any doubt just how effective it is.

Not only that…

Astragalus supports…

  • Your immune system
  • Protection against harmful rays
  • Anti-inflammatory defenses, keeping your skin free of blemishes and sores

For best results, you’re strongly advised to use the bio-enzyme formula at night…

Because when you’re asleep, your skin cells are free to regenerate without interruption…

They are not subjected to environmental or physical stressors.

So getting a good night’s slumber really works wonders for your complexion…

And it’s for this reason that cell rejuvenator number 7 was added…

And now…

Enter Melatonin–The Sleeper Agent.

The melatonin in your body helps you sleep at night…

But it’s also a strong antioxidant that protects your skin from the toxic environment.

When you’re young, your body’s melatonin helps support the body’s repair mechanism while you sleep…

But as you age, melatonin levels dip…

Leaving your skin vulnerable to damage.

Melatonin works by supporting the fibroblasts in your cells that help make your skin appear smooth and wrinkle-free.

To ensure you reap every single benefit, the team at Healthycell put together a formula that includes the bio-enzyme and the 7 skin cell rejuvenators…

One that combines them in just the right proportion to get the biggest impact while keeping costs down.

The formula is called Healthycell Telomere Length.

Skin Flare-up Triggers “Innocently” In Your Midst

And no one warns you about them!

Perhaps due to ignorance or negligence…

But the great news is that your epiphany has finally come…

To expose the insidious culprits…glean deeper insights…and take care of your skin from a point of authoritative knowledge, not guesswork or fantasy!

You see, you live with these culprits every moment of your life…

And chances are slim that you’d take note of their presence and the damage they can inflict on your skin.

Don’t beat or curse yourself once you get in the know–you’re not to blame, but the skin care science and beauty industry.

But what’s important is now–this moment when you’re reading this article. It’s your moment of revelation–to know the skin health enemies that surround you everyday without the remotest warnings of any danger.

You see, skin disease can come in many  forms–eczema, rosacea, psoriasis, dermatitis, and so on.

What these conditions have in common is their undeniable ability to make your life miserable and wretched–waning self-esteem and confidence, fear of rejection, stigma–you name it!

At first, you may make the mistake most people do and write it off as just a little dryness or redness, but gradually, the symptoms progress to something much worse like high-grade eczema…

A condition that can take over your life and determine the difference between a good and a bad day.

Many triggers and causes of skin disease and flare-ups remained unknown for a long time, but thanks to cutting-edge research on skin disease, many culprits have now been exposed from their hideouts.

A dysbiosis of the gut microbiome, autoimmunity, diet and food reactions, thyroid dysfunction, toxicity overload from chemicals and heavy metals, hormone imbalance, chronic stress, or a host of other factors could trigger various skin conditions.

For true and lasting healing to occur, the causes must be ultimately identified and eliminated.

One of the best ways to assist the body in the healing process and make life livable, is to avoid the acute escalations in inflammation, redness, itching and burning–collectively known as flare-ups.

And this is where a trigger differs to a large extent from a cause…

Whereas a cause is the root of the problem, a trigger is an aggravator (activator) of that problem, meaning the problem exists and only requires a spark to explode.

In many cases, everyday items, which would normally not cause a problem whatsoever, can cause severe irritation in extremely sensitive skin that’s suffering from one of the aforementioned conditions.

There’s an overlap, though. For example, exposure to toxic chemicals and heavy metals can be both a cause for skin disease developing in the first place, and on the other hand, a trigger for flare-ups.

Chemical and heavy metal toxicity can lead to many ailments, not just skin disease. Accordingly, living a non-toxic lifestyle to the greatest extent possible is advisable, no matter the health concern at hand.

What are some of the typical Triggers of Skin Flare-ups?

You’ll be literally shocked to discover some everyday items are triggers! You may even be skeptical at first, but the scientific proof behind the claims is inarguable.

And…

Rubber is one of them!

You see, rubber latex is produced using the sap from the rubber tree–Hevea Brasiliensis. This, of course, is from nature, and for most people, it’s perfectly fine to come into contact with rubber.

How wrong can you be?

For people with chronic skin conditions, certain proteins found in rubber and its products, can trigger irritation and flare-ups.

Some people may even have a sensitivity to rubber without having a known skin condition.

It’s important to note sensitivity can occur from the proteins in rubber, or due to the chemical accelerants and antioxidants, sometimes used in production when turning the rubber tree sap into rubber latex used in products.

Thiurams, mercaptobenzothiazole, thioureas, and carbamates used in rubber production are all synthetic compounds that could cause skin issues.

In the case of powdered rubber gloves, the high pH of the powder and/or the chemicals used to make them could also be the culprit in skin dryness or irritation.

Some products such as latex paint are made with synthetic/man-made latex. Notably, synthetic latex does not contain the proteins found in natural rubber, which cause irritation.

However, avoiding contact with synthetic chemicals as much as possible is always a good idea.

Common Sources of Natural Rubber in Consumer Products:

  • Athletic shoes
  • Baby bottles, nipples, and pacifiers
  • Balloons
  • Handbags
  • Tires
  • Tools
  • Condoms
  • Underwear legs and waistbands
  • Rubber toys

Common Sources of Natural Rubber in Medical and Dental Supplies

  • Disposable gloves
  • Dental dams
  • Airway and intravenous tubing
  • Syringes
  • Stethoscopes
  • Catheters
  • Dressings and bandages

Nickel is yet another flare-up trigger…

Nickel is a naturally occuring metallic element, and is the fifth most common element on earth.

Owing to the nature of its physical and chemical properties, nickel is used in producing a vast array of products.

Some ions found within nickel can cause severe irritation in those suffering from a chronic skin condition.

Nickel allergies in individuals without chronic skin conditions can also develop due to prolonged exposure to nickel-containing items.

Dangerous exposure to nickel can come in two forms–release of nickel ions, and sweat.

Products containing nickel will release nickel ions, which are then absorbed into the skin.

Some nickel-containing alloys, such as many types of stainless steel, do release these ions, but not in enough amounts to cause a problem.

Nickel can also be leached from metals due to contact with sweat. The element itself will then either rest on, or be absorbed into the skin and the hazardous ions will cause irritation.

Common Sources of Nickel

  • Belt buckles
  • Bra hooks
  • Bracelets
  • Brass fixtures
  • Cell Phones
  • Cello strings
  • Cigarette lighters
  • Coins
  • Chrome fixtures
  • Costume jewelry
  • Dental devices
  • Earrings
  • Eyeglass frames
  • Fasteners
  • Gold-especially white and yellow 10k and 14k
  • Guitar strings
  • Hair pins
  • Hand tools
  • Handbag clutches
  • Heirloom jewelry
  • “Hypoallergenic” jewelry
  • Jeans studs
  • Keys
  • Kitchen utensils
  • Lipstick holders
  • Medical equipment
  • Metal buttons and snaps
  • Musical instruments–metal keys, mouthpieces
  • Necklaces
  • “Nickel-free” jewelry
  • Pens
  • Pocket knives
  • Powder compacts
  • Razors
  • Rings
  • Scissors
  • Suspender clips
  • Tuners
  • Watches & bands, and
  • Zippers, among others

The easiest way to avoid nickel is, first and foremost, to be aware it could cause a problem and be on the lookout for any possible adverse reactions whenever you come into contact with any metal products.

Additionally, at-home tests to ascertain the nickel content in metal products are widely available.

Unfortunately, even though “nickel-free” has become a common selling point in jewelry, many products marketed on that premise, still do test positive for nickel.

Turning to Clothing and Textiles

Nothing touches your skin more than the clothes you wear, with sheets and blankets likely coming in a close second. Therefore, knowing what to look for and what to avoid in the fabrics is crucial to avoiding flare-ups.

The fibers used to create certain textiles will be inherently more abrasive than others.

The heightened irritation might not cause a problem in someone not suffering from a chronic skin condition, yet could absolutely be the cause of widespread flare-ups in someone who is.

Moreover, the additives and chemicals used in producing fabrics could contribute to the problem.

Ingredients like formaldehyde, petrochemical dyes, heavy metal dye fixatives, flame retardants, perfluorinated chemicals–the harmful chemical in teflon pans, caustic soda, and sulphuric acid are all commonplace in textile production, particularly in synthetic textiles.

Synthetic is the most dangerous group of materials in clothing and textiles. Synthetic textiles are produced using man-made chemicals, whereas natural textiles, such as cotton, hemp or wool are derived from nature.

Synthetic clothing is more likely to be irritating in and of itself. Not only are artificial chemicals used on the production process, but the clothing itself is made of artificial material.

The most hazardous synthetic fabrics and features are:

  • Acrylic
  • Polyester
  • Rayon
  • Acetate
  • Triacetate
  • Nylon

Anything labeled static-resistant, wrinkle-resistant, permanent press, no-iron, stain-proof, flame-retardant, or moth-repellent is  guaranteed to have been treated with artificial chemicals.

On the natural front, although wool is indeed an entirely natural fabric, it can be itchy on some skins. If this happens, avoid it.

Advocates of merino wool do claim it’s the exception and will not irritate sensitive skin.

Although cotton is a great choice, ensure it’s organic i.e. grown without synthetic pesticides and herbicides, and from a source that’s careful about what goes into the production of the clothing.

Again, watch out for blends in fabric material. 50% polyester is still enough to cause irritation. Look for 100% natural materials.

Of course, there are fabrics known not to trigger flare-ups…

The safest choices for non-irritating natural fabrics are:-

  • Organic cotton
  • Bamboo
  • TENCEL–made from wood pulp using natural production methods.

Always scout for clothing lines made from TENCEL and infused with zinc, a mineral known to soothe chronic skin conditions.

Turning your attention to preservatives

They include a broad array of compounds added to many different types of products, mainly for the purpose of extending shelf-life in one way or another.

In traditional settings, natural methods such as using salt and pickling in food at least, were commonplace. Today, however, artificial chemicals have pervaded the majority of products found on store shelves, even those labeled as organic in many cases.

Most, if not all, synthetic chemicals used for preservation have been found to trigger flare-ups in skin conditions.

Food preservatives are used for purposes of preventing spoilage, keeping foods fresh, and to slow changes in color, flavor, or texture.

The most common food preservatives to look out for on labels include:

  • Benzoates–most commonly sodium benzoate
  • Sorbates–most commonly potassium sorbate
  • Propionates
  • Nitrites
  • Sulfites, and
  • Polyphosphates

The easiest way to avoid preservatives is eating whole, organic foods. In other words, avoid packaged foods of all kinds, as much as possible.

Preservatives in Pharmaceutical Drugs

Preservatives in pharmaceuticals mainly inhibit microbial growth, as well as prevent oxidation.

A small sampling of preservatives used include:

  • Parabens
  • Benzyl Alcohol
  • Meta cresol
  • Benzoic acid
  • Thiomersal
  • Propylene Glycol
  • Benzalkonium Chloride

Many common preservatives in pharmaceuticals can be avoided by seeking out a specialty compounding pharmacy and asking what is possible to remove, or even having a conversation with a more conventional pharmacist in most cases.

Preservatives in Make-up and Personal Care Products

Everything from shampoos and conditioners, sunscreen, lotions of all kinds, toothpaste and make-up can contain synthetic chemical preservatives, though many claim to use natural and organic ingredients in their advertising.

Common preservatives include:

  • Parabens
  • Formaldehyde releasers (Imidazolidinyl Urea)
  • Isothiazolinones
  • Phenoxyethanol
  • Sodium Benzoate
  • Potassium sorbate

Keep an eye on labels on all make-up and personal care products for anything that isn’t a food-based ingredient or essential oil.

In some categories like shampoos and conditioners, it can be extremely difficult to find a product free of chemical preservatives.

The good news is that you can consider making your own… and there are plenty of great DIY recipes online.

And talking of sunscreens…

Oxybenzone in sunscreen is a must-avoid. It’s used in most conventional  sunscreens since it’s effective in absorbing UV rays.

The only problem is…

It’s now been linked to a host of health issues including  triggering skin flare-ups, not to mention environmental pollution and contamination.

And now enter…

Extreme climates...

Which include humidity, basically denoting the amount of moisture in the atmosphere.

A salient characteristic of chronic skin conditions is perpetual dryness that is very hard to keep moisturized.

If the prevailing climate is very dry (low humidity), this pulls out the skin moisture, thereby greatly exacerbating the dry skin condition.

On the other hand, high humidity can easily cause sweating, which can lead to severe itchiness in chronic skin conditions. This can potentially trigger flare-ups.

Ideal humidity ranges from 30%-50%, with most people finding the best relief closer to 50%.

Humidifiers or dehumidifiers can be very handy for people in climates outside of the optimal humidity range.

In the case of humidifiers, be sure to periodically check and clean the water tank to inhibit mold growth, and/or purchase a unit with built-in mechanism to prevent it.

Temperature

Hot climates can also be a trigger because they induce excessive sweating, leading to dehydration.

You can mitigate this by avoiding exposure to high temperatures…

And where possible, consider relocation to a more ideal locale, altogether.

What about Grass and Sand?

Environmental allergies are potential causes of chronic skin conditions. Certain natural compounds found in various grasses can be irritating to those struggling with such conditions.

Worse yet, due to the coarse nature of sand, it can, too, be irritating to an existing condition.

These cases may apply to some situations, and not others. As such, of paramount importance is to know that it can happen, and be guarded the next time you sit or walk barefoot on either of these otherwise very pleasant natural surfaces.

The list of potential triggers is fairly long…

And harsh detergents are a part of it…

The problem with detergents is they aren’t entirely washed off clothes during washing.

Some detergent residues will remain attached to garments after washing and drying. If the detergent is an irritant, it will be in contact with your skin.

Common Ingredients to avoid in Detergents:-

  • 1.4 Dioxane
  • Sodium Laureth Sulphate (SLS)
  • Bleach/Sodium Hypochlorite
  • Formaldehyde
  • Phosphates
  • Synthetic fragrances

Notably, SLS is often used or advertised in natural products…

And for sure, it can be derived from coconut or palm oil, but in nearly all cases, it still acts as a trigger for skin flare-ups!

When it comes to detergents, there is a host of non-toxic, gentle formulas you can choose from.

Environmental Toxicants

The world is chock full of pollutants and contaminants, and there’s no denying that toxicity is rising exponentially, leaving in its wake a trail of ailments, including cancer and chronic skin conditions.

And talking of toxicity, there are primary things to imperatively pay attention to in your living environment…

Adequate circulation of clean Air is one of them…

You see, much emphasis is placed on eating organic foods, and justifiably so. But think about how many times you eat per day, versus how many times you breathe per day!

Clearly, it behoves you to be more concerned about the quality of the air you breathe…

But it doesn’t happen quite often!

And there are many unsuspected air pollutants in your environment…

For instance, mold will find its way into your respiratory system due to leaky pipes and unattended damaged water system in your home.

You’re strongly advised to get your home inspected by a professional mold remediation company, just to be sure you’re not exposed to it.

Chemicals from otherwise “innocent” household items like furniture and cabinets are a big culprit.

Not only that…

Allergens such as pollen and dander can trigger adverse skin reaction.

Heavy metals are yet another culprit…finding their way into your air in colossal amounts. And fossil fuels are a major source!

How can you mitigate air pollution in your home?

The best way to breathe clean air inside your home is through dilution and filtration.

Windows should always remain open, even if just a crack in the winter.

Better yet, running a ceiling fan is a great way to ventilate and keep the air moving…

And to top it all, at least one high quality air purifier is a must-have for every home.

What if I told you your water is more contaminated than you can ever imagine?

The Environmental Working Group conducted a major analysis of tap water throughout the US, and the results were spine-chilling!

Just about every municipality had an alarming amount of man-made chemicals, pharmaceutical drug residues, and heavy metals, just to name a few.

Way out?

As with air, a high quality water filter for drinking and shower (it touches your skin) is a must…

And I can’t stress this enough…

A whole home water filter should be high on your list of priority purchases.

Do you know your typical surfaces play host to triggers?

And you’ve no reason whatsoever to use any synthetic (man-made) chemicals for cleaning–period. It doesn’t matter whether it’s  for sanitation or general cleaning and stain removal…

There’s a wide range of non-toxic options to choose from to ensure the surfaces your skin touches everyday are not a trigger.

Ever heard of petrolatum?

It’s the nickname for petroleum jelly, which is used in a variety of products and applications…

With Vaseline being the icon of all petroleum-based brands.

Petroleum jelly is indeed a petroleum byproduct, and has been recommended for many uses, including moisturizing dry skin.

But on the flip side, a more recent research has linked petroleum jelly to a variety of health concerns, and ironically…

It’s been found to be a trigger for worsening skin conditions in some people!

Remember to always consult a professional practitioner if in doubt, or in case of adverse reactions.

Perfumes make us smell nice…cement our sense of self-confidence and approval.

Unfortunately, almost all perfumes are composed mainly of artificial chemicals, many of which have been directly linked to triggering adverse skin conditions.

And while there are over 4,000 chemicals used in the fragrance industry, some of the most concerning for skin conditions include:-

  • Acetone
  • Ethanol
  • Benzaldehyde
  • Formaldehyde
  • Methylene chloride
  • Camphor
  • Ethyl acetate
  • Benzyl alcohol
  • Phthalates

It’s baby easy to avoid use of perfumes–either don’t use any at all, or drown in the joy of essential oils.

Thus far, you can agree with me…

That I’ve done the harder part of exposing the most common “innocent” flare-up triggers you interact with on  a regular basis.

And now…

It’s time to do your part: Identify what affects your skin adversely and eliminate it from your space…

And in case you have a chronic skin condition, consult a professional practitioner to help manage your healing journey.

Following the tips and advice in this post will no doubt see you turn heads with reckless abandon.

To your supple, radiant, beautiful, and irresistible looks!

Honestly…you can’t read up to this point if the piece is not useful and engaging!

Don’t shelve it! Instead, share widely to foster skin health for a beautiful looking planet.

To say “Thank You” is an understatement of my gratitude for your patronage.

Stay tuned…

Natural skin glow

your ticket to natural beauty…

Did you know that you can realize your skin care goals without spending a fortune?

…That there are foods and oils that load nutrients and minerals proven to nourish your skin, hair, and nails…

And among the top-rated include the following:

  • Magnesium oil–magnesium is one of the most abundant minerals in your body, and it’s responsible for over 300 enzyme reactions, helping to regulate blood pressure, improve sleep, boost your immunity, and much more.

Unfortunately, due to the depletion of soils through overfarming, many foods don’t contain as much magnesium as they used to. It’s, therefore, easy to become deficient in this important nutrient, especially if you’re not eating a variety of plants and foods that are magnesium-rich.

And this is where magnesium oil kicks in…

Applying magnesium in topical oil form can help restore magnesium levels faster than consuming it orally. This way, your body experiences its zen-promoting benefits sooner than later.

Magnesium oil spray and lotions are the best way to apply magnesium topically. Indulge yourself after shower or hot bath by rubbing the oil into your skin. It might tingle at first, but the sensation quickly fades away.

  • Epsom Salt–drawing a bath with Epsom salt is another great way to increase your magnesium levels in order to ease stress, reduce anxiety, and give your nervous system a rest.

Even better, studies show that soaking in magnesium-rich baths improves skin hydration, skin roughness, and skin redness.

Draw a hot bath regularly, add 2 cups of Epsom salt and swish them around until they’re dissolved. Soak for at least 15 minutes to enjoy the calming benefits.

  • Avocados— the healthy fats and nutrients in avocado help nourish your body from the inside, besides moisturizing your skin.

Avocados are rich in vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant that helps reduce signs of aging, protects your skin from sun damage, and helps keep skin supple by boosting collagen.

Mash up some avocado into a guacamole-like consistency. Of course, you can eat some and slather on your face for a quick, no-fuss face mask. Leave the mask on for 10-15 minutes.

For some added skin benefits, combine avocado with a tablespoon of raw honey and a teaspoon of turmeric powder. Leave it for 15 minutes, and ten rinse off.

  • Activated Charcoal–this is a pure form of charcoal that has the ability to absorb toxins and impurities, both from inside your body and on your skin.

Activated charcoal helps to pull out dirt and oil from your skin pores, helping to ease irritation.

Not only that, it also helps remove stains from your teeth, effectively acting as a natural teeth whitener.

You mix 1 teaspoon of activated charcoal powder with half teaspoon of raw honey and half teaspoon of water.

Apply to your face and let it dry for 10 minutes. Wash off with warm water. This will open up your pores.

As a teeth whitening paste, wet your toothbrush, put a half teaspoon of activated charcoal powder on it. Brush your teeth for 5-10 minutes, and then rinse your mouth.

  • Apple Cider Vinegar–this formulation has been used for centuries to treat a variety of ailments–from digestive issues to acne.

It’s a natural antibacterial that contains beneficial enzymes and acids that nourish your skin, as well as reduce acne-causing bacteria.

Dilute apple cider vinegar in water and use it as a natural face toner and acne treatment.

Pour diluted apple cider vinegar on your scalp after shampooing. It acts as a natural conditioning and dandruff treatment.

Soak your feet in a diluted apple cider vinegar to soften calluses.

Better still, add apple cider vinegar to a bath to soften and nourish your skin.

  • Coconut Oil–is a potent antibacterial and antifungal. This powerful oil contains healthy, medium-chain fatty acids that moisturize and protect your skin and hair.

Use coconut oil as a full-body moisturizer after shower. You can add a drop of sweet orange essential oil or peppermint oil for a calming aroma.

Alternatively, you can use coconut oil as a face moisturizer to help fight wrinkles and acne. The healthy fats in coconut oil lock in moisture in your skin, while the antibacterial properties combat acne.

  • Vitamin E Oil–this is a potent antibacterial vitamin that fights free radical damage.

Free radicals are unstable molecules that damage your DNA, resulting in signs of aging and disease.

On any given day, you’re exposed to and generate a great deal of free radicals from unhealthy diets, environmental pollution, and even stress.

Consuming vitamin E-rich foods and applying the oil topically can help reduce and prevent skin damage.

To nourish your skin, apply vitamin E oil directly, or add several drops of coconut oil moisturizer , and then apply to your face and body.

  • Shea Butter— this is the creamy fat extracted from the African shea tree, which is considered sacred by many communities in West Africa.

Studies have shown it’s excellent at moisturizing your skin, and also contains powerful anti-aging and anti-inflammatory properties.

Shea butter has a rich, creamy texture that makes it perfect as a full-body lotion, or even as a heavy face moisturizer.

To make your Shea butter experience even richer, add a couple drops of your favorite essential oils and blend them thoroughly before applying.

Even better, Shea butter is proven to be an excellent stretch marks remover.

  • Coffee–it contains a ton of antioxidants that help fight signs of aging.

Coffee’s caffeine content may even help improve cellulite when applied topically.

Using coffee as a full-body scrub can help remove dead skin cells while also increasing circulation and improving the appearance of cellulite.

To whip up an easy scrub, combine a half cup of coffee grounds, a quarter cup of coconut oil, and 1-2 drops of your favorite essential oils.

  • Raw Honey— a spoonful will not only give you antibacterial benefits, but you can also apply it topically to help reduce acne, inflammation, brighten up your skin, and lock in moisture.

Honey is a humectant, meaning it attracts and retains moisture, which is great for keeping your skin supple.

For a brightening and moisturizing face mask, combine one tablespoon of raw honey with one drop of lemon essential oil. Apply to your face and let it sit for 15 minutes. You can then wash it away with warm water.

  • Sea Salt— it’s rich in an array of trace minerals like potassium, magnesium, calcium, manganese, and zinc.

It’s naturally an antibacterial, which helps manage acne and other skin conditions caused by bacteria. Its coarseness also makes it great for use as a full-body scrub.

Make a soothing salt scrub by combining a quarter cup of sea salt, a quarter cup of aloe vera gel, a quarter cup of coconut oil, and 2-3 drops of your favorite essential oil. This should form a thick paste you can rub over your body in the shower.

Add a half cup of sea salt to your Epsom salt bath for an extra dose of minerals and skin softening benefits.

  • Lemons— they are rich in vitamin C, and yet another potent antioxidant that fights aging and DNA damage.

When applying lemon topically, make sure to avoid the sun as citrus can make your skin sensitive to heat.

Add 1 teaspoon of fresh lemon juice to one tablespoon of raw honey. Apply to your face and give it 15 minutes before washing away with warm water.

Take a section (piece) of lemon and rub it on your nails to help whiten them.

Add one tablespoon of fresh lemon juice or 2 drops of lemon essential oil to one of the body scrub recipes mentioned above.

  • Coconut Cream— this is great in making a luxurious hair and body moisturizer.

Coconut cream is different from coconut oil… just so you can avoid confusing the two. While coconut oil is pressed from coconut flesh, coconut cream comes from simmering coconut flesh in water.

The thick, creamy layer that separates from the thinner layer is coconut cream (the rest is coconut milk).

Coconut cream contains beneficial saturated fats and acids that moisturize, as well as kill bad bacteria.

Nourish your hair by combining a half cup of coconut cream with 2 teaspoons of raw honey, and a quarter cup of coconut milk. Apply liberally to the ends of your damp hair. Allow it to sit for 10 minutes, and then rinse.

And…there you are…

Beauty and elegance are yours for the taking without breaking bank!

Look your best following the foregoing tips and get tongues wagging about your newly acquired glow that turns heads whenever and wherever you pass!

Go forth and rock them!

Collagen with Caramel

Collagen beauty conspiracy unearthed

<script data-ad-client="ca-pub-3828106578819360" async src="https://pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/js/adsbygoogle.js"></script>

For quite some time now…

There’s been a lot of marketing hype around collagen

And for a good reason…

Because collagen, if properly formulated, can do wonders to your hair, skin, nails, joints, and much more.

But there’s a lurking problem somewhere…

That has caused many collagen products on the market under-deliver on their promises and trigger doubt in the minds of desperate and frustrated consumers!

You see, nothing fires your confidence on all cylinders than knowing you’re looking your best and even earning envy as you make heads turn!

And now…

You can have all this, thanks to advances in beauty science.

Researchers in the beauty space have cracked the code…

And taken collagen to the next level…

By unearthing and incorporating key ingredients that have hitherto missed in most collagen formulas.

Get immersed to discover the secret to your dream, head-turning beauty.

And to get to this coveted position, you only need to lay your hands on one product–collagen combined with the tasty caramel!

You see, a tablespoonful of caramel is actually one of the most potent beauty products you can ever use…

It performs better than makeup, retinol creams, or even serums…

And you don’t have to apply it on your skin, though…

Instead, you can simply eat one spoonful every morning and before you know it…

You’ll look in the mirror and see that…

  • The appearance of fine lines and the dreaded crow’s feet have vanished away…
  • Spotty, blotchy skin has softened into a beautiful glow…
  • Your hair looks thicker, fuller, vibrant and shiny…

In fact, one spoonful of the combo has been shown to promote weight loss and energy boosts.

In just a moment…

You’ll discover the secret ingredient behind this mind-blasting performance…

And it’s not retinol or biotin…and if you think it’s your run-of-the mill collagen, you couldn’t be more wrong!

You can put it in your coffee…in your oatmeal, or your shake or just eat it right off the spoon.

As you may be aware…

Collagen has taken over the beauty world as the “anti-aging” miracle cure.

If you search it on Google, you’ll be bombarded with celebrities talking about it on the top page…

It’s one of those trends they have incorporated into their beauty regimes to look their best.

And they’d make all manner of claims, including:

  • Collagen banished their fine lines and made their skin radiant…
  • Or…it gave them thick, luscious hair, and made their nails stronger than ever

Many Hollywood celebrities swear by collagen…that it gives them glowing skin.

They drink collagen shakes after their workouts to recover faster…

It makes them feel good from the inside out…

It may sound great…

But there’s something you’ve not been told!

Sure…collagen is the magical fairy dust–it makes up 75-80% of your skin. it’s literally the stuff that prevents wrinkles from forming.

And for you to understand how it works…

Imagine your mattress…

It’s made up of layers…

The first layer is made up of soft cloth

The second is the “filling” that makes the mattress…

And, inside, are the springs that give the mattress its shape.

Your skin is simply built that way…

The top layer of your skin–the epidermis–is like the soft cloth…

One layer below the dermis is the filling that makes your skin plump…

And collagen fibers are the “springs” in your skin. They help keep it in shape, making it bouncy, healthy and radiant.

Simply put, collagen is what makes your skin look young.

When you’re young, you have a lot of collagen in your body.

But unfortunately, you stop replacing the collagen in your body at the same rate as you age.

In fact, you can lose up to 30% of your collagen by the time you hit 40.

And without collagen, your body cannot rejuvenate your hair, skin, nails, joints, and much more.

You need collagen to build hair proteins and make the skin around your hair root strong.

And when you lose collagen, your skin gradually becomes dull, thin, and may even sag.

Wrinkles and fine lines are more likely to appear.

Worse yet, you can also feel the lack of collagen in your body…

That’s because collagen is also the glue that holds your joints, ligaments, and bones together…

Which means you experience more discomfort in your muscles and joints–making them that much harder to recover from workouts.

But to get these amazing results, there’s a catch that has been withheld from you!

And it’s the reason you’ll try all collagen supplements and end up being frustrated all the more!

You see, the beauty industry is worth more than 72 billion dollars annually–big industry indeed!

Celebrities are paid to endorse products, and collagen hasn’t been spared either!

The more you dig into this beauty conspiracy, the more you realize that most collagen is promoted on great marketing hype.

In fact, most collagen isn’t what it seems…

And, as a minimum, there are 3 shocking facts about collagen that nobody talks about:

  • Natural collagen is too big–are you drinking bone broth? Many health bloggers claim bone broth is amazing for your skin…simply because it contains collagen.

And for sure, it does contain collagen, but sadly, it’s not the kind of collagen that can help your hair and skin at all!

The thing is…natural collagen is a big problem. Our intestines can’t absorb most of it. This means you won’t notice a visible difference in your skin and hair.

And any collagen your body cannot absorb just gets flushed down the toilet!

The next fact about collagen is a real shocker…

  • Many collagen supplements are full of fillers which can destroy it. Collagen has to be sourced from somewhere…

And most companies use beef bones and try to disguise the beef taste by adding sugar to their powders…

This is because…in order to get rid of the beef taste, collagen has to go through a very expensive purification process…

Something most companies would rather not to do because it’s difficult and costly. So they add sugar or fillers to hide the taste. Unfortunately, sugar destroys your collagen!

When you take sugar, it binds to your collagen, thereby weighing down and breaking it.

In fact, it can even disrupt your body from regenerating collagen altogether. So most collagen variants out there don’t deliver the goods!

They cancel out the benefits–it’s basically like sweating it out at the gym for hours and then eating a burger for dinner–what a waste!

It’s an exercise in futility!

  • Collagen actually needs packages to work effectively…

And talking of packages…

These are things called micelles, which are literally pronounced as “My Cells“…

And you need to understand some basic body functions in order to appreciate their role.

You see, when you ingest collagen, it travels through your digestive system and gets broken down in your stomach.

Your body has to create these little packages to wrap around the nutrient (collagen) so it can get absorbed into your body. You can think of it like a shipping fulfillment center.

You get an item, but before you dispatch it, you have to indicate the address of the recipient on the box. Micelles function similarly–they wrap around collagen so it can get through the lining in your small intestine.

Micelles also protect the collagen from your stomach acid, so it doesn’t get destroyed before it’s used by your body!

See, our bodies can really get bad at absorbing vital nutrients over time, and most importantly, collagen…

Partly because the process of making micelles slows down with age.

And when this happens, you can sport some of the following symptoms:

  • Thinning hair
  • Brittle nails
  • “Hollow” looking skin
  • Lost radiance
  • Long-lasting discomfort after workouts
  • Harder-to- get-rid-of belly fat…and
  • That “can’t-get-out-of-bed” feeling.

All this means you’re not getting enough collagen.

But don’t freak out…

There is good news…

Scientists have figured out how to make micelles outside of the body.

In fact, micelle technology is widely used around the world for a variety of cutting-edge medical therapies.

When it comes to collagen…

Micelles ensure your collagen gets absorbed–it simply does the job for you!

It comes pre-packaged and ready to ship straight into your bloodstream from your digestive system…

So you can experience the full benefits of collagen.

I’m sure you’re wondering what to look out for in a collagen supplement…

And here are some pointers:

  • Micellized collagen–one that’s super absorbable to allow maximum support for your hair, skin, and nails. A product that’s easy to take and actually tastes good–no fillers…no sugar…no preservatives.

You see…

Collagen is only a part of the entire anti-aging game.

If you want some extra bonus like more energy and be able to give every workout your all and feel your best right from the inside out…

And to be able to execute everything on your to-do checklist without feeling tired and sluggish…

You need a formula that combines 4 super powerful ingredients to make you look and feel healthy, radiant, and a better you!

The ingredients include:

  • Micellized collagen–this comes from healthy, grass-fed beef, but doesn’t taste like beef at all!

It’s the exact dose you need to keep your skin looking healthy and radiant.

It’s micellized to get into your body effectively…

And with it…

Thick, strong, shiny hair, dewy, radiant, healthy-looking skin, diminished fine lines and wrinkles, stronger nails and optimized joint and muscle recovery after workouts will be all yours for the taking!

  • MCTs (Medium Chain Triglycerides)–closely related to the Keto diet, MCTs can promote healthy weight…

And they’re magical for a number of reasons, including keeping you feeling full, longer, giving you an instant boost of energy...almost like a caffeine zap without coffee…

Not to mention that they can trick your body into thinking you don’t need to store fat, thereby helping you control weight.

  • Algal DHA (Omega 3 fatty acids)–you may be aware of the benefits of Omega 3’s…with the most notable being the ability to help your skin seal in moisture and keep pesky skin irritants at bay.

And it gets even better…

Because it can also promote hair growth–you know…the thick, luscious, healthy-looking hair!

Not only that…

Omega 3’s are good for the heart, even if you’re not thinking about your heart health right now–you can count it as an extra bonus.

  • Vitamin E–it’s pivotal in balancing your body’s response to free radicals, which are rogue molecules that accelerate your aging, including destroying your hair roots.

In fact, vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that can help protect your scalp against damage, coupled with the ability to protect your skin against pollution, sunlight, and second-hand cigarette smoke

And these are things you really can’t avoid in your day-to-day life. So vitamin E acts like a shield around every single one of your cells.

The only thing with vitamin E, though is…

It’s sourced externally, which may compromise standards.

The best source is sunflower seeds that are processed under strict and close supervision to guarantee quality.

The foregoing ingredients will give you a complete collagen formula–one that’s rigorously tested for purity, safety, and potency…

And when you use this pristine formula…

  • Your skin will look younger, dewier, more radiant, supple, and healthier
  • Fine lines and wrinkles will vanish like clockwork

  • You’ll feel satiated (not crave food) throughout the day
  • You’ll maintain your lean, smashing figure
  • You’ll incinerate fat like a furnace…and
  • Experience boundless energy without the crash

And to top it off…

The formula is affordably priced to accommodate as many people as possible.

Coffee for your skin

does coffee benefit your skin?

<script data-ad-client="ca-pub-3828106578819360" async src="https://pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/js/adsbygoogle.js"></script>

It’s highly likely that most of you have experienced coffee’s ability to make groggy mornings better…

But did you know that your morning brew can give your skin a natural boost, too?

Perhaps you’ve also come across the other remarkable benefits of a daily brew, such as reducing the risk of developing Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease by up to 65%, reducing your risk of heart disease, stroke, colorectal and liver cancer, and even the risk of developing type 2 diabetes.

And you’d be forgiven to think the amazing health benefits of coffee are over…

It turns out that coffee is great for another part of the body: Your skin.

These claims stem from the fact that coffee has a high antioxidant capacity and that the caffeine content can help improve circulation.

But how exactly does this translate into a glowing complexion?

Coffee has been widely studied for its anti-inflammatory properties. Its caffeine content, coupled with potent antioxidant substances like polyphenols and hydrocinnamic acids may be responsible for this effect.

And this is great news for those suffering from breakouts, as the antioxidants in coffee can help soothe red and inflamed breakouts.

Even better, coffee is rich in polyphenols, a group of antioxidants also found in foods like berries, tea, chocolate, and wine.

In addition to giving these foods their vibrant and deep colors, these polyphenols work to fight free radicals and slow down the process of aging due to DNA damage.

As a bonus, they have also been shown to help protect against ultraviolet radiation and slow down skin aging caused by heavy exposure to the sun.

Studies ranging from the US to Poland, Spain, France, and Japan report that coffee is the single richest source of dietary antioxidants.

So, enjoy that second coppa without guilt, as long as it’s early in the day so you’re not interfering with your sleep, of course.

And that is not all…

Due to its slightly course nature, coffee–especially finely-ground coffee–makes an excellent exfoliator.

The granules help slough away dead skin cells, and even though research is limited, they have been said to help stimulate lymph drainage and increase blood flow. Both of these are beneficial when it comes to achieving glowing skin and excretion of toxins.

And there is more…

Because as it turns out, coffee may be one of the top contenders in the topical fight against cellulite.

Besides its ability to increase circulation, which can ultimately help smooth the appearance of cellulite, the caffeine in coffee has been tied to a lipolytic effect on fat cells, meaning it essentially breaks down fat.

Studies have shown the effect to be quite substantial, asserting that: “Emulsion with caffeine caused a reduction of 17% in the diameter of the fatty cells compared to the control…

And emulsion was considered to promote the lipotytic action on fatty tissue, complementing the treatment of cellulite. In other words, applying a topical caffeine solution to the skin caused a decrease in fatty cell size by 17%.

This is also an important factor when it comes to diminishing the appearance of cellulite, as excess fat beneath the skin layer tends to protrude in an uneven manner, leading to cellulite’s rumpled appearance.

The less protruding fat tissue you have, the less chance for unsightly cellulite appearance.

One thing to keep in mind here is that, caffeine can actually enter your body through the skin. So, if you have a sensitivity or high blood pressure, you might want to use a coffee scrub sparingly and check with your doctor.

Not only that…

The antioxidants in coffee can also revive a dull, tired skin by ushering essential nutrients into the pores. Therefore, alongside its ability to increase circulation–thanks to its caffeine content–topical java can quickly brighten your complexion when used in a mask or scrub.

And…

Have you ever had a day where your face seemed a bit puffier than normal, or perhaps one where you’ve woken up with slightly swollen eyes?

Luckily, not only will a cup of brewed java rekindle your spirits, but it could also help reduce the puffiness when applied topically.

This is because caffeine and various other compounds like methylxanthine in coffee have a diuretic effect, which can aid in reducing edema, or swollen tissues due to excess fluid retention.

To top it all…

Caffeine steals the show once again when it comes to minimizing dark circles under the eyes.

Studies have shown that topical applications of caffeine increase the micro-circulation of blood in the skin, effectively pushing along stagnant blood from dark, tired eyes.

However, if you’re going to apply coffee as an eye-opener, you may want to do it in the morning, as caffeine can be absorbed into the skin, possibly affecting sleep.

Clearly, as you can see, the benefits of coffee for your skin are immense…

And are derived mainly from its natural antioxidant and caffeine content.

Friend…

You’ve no reason not to sport a beautifully radiant skin…

No excuses like citing expensive solutions that are way beyond your means…

Because a tested and proven solution is right in your kitchen cabinet…

Go forth…get that glow sparkling…and rock!

Did you find the article useful? Share it far and wide to spread the skin goodness of java.

Thank you most sincerely for your time, readership and/or listenership.

Anti-aging secret

Humiliation Leads To The Discovery of “Ageless Skin Secret”…

<script data-ad-client="ca-pub-3828106578819360" async src="https://pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/js/adsbygoogle.js"></script>

She couldn’t imagine even in the remotest sense…the kind of embarrassment that lay ahead…

As she stepped out in style for a historic lunch with her beloved husband.

But the humiliation somehow turned out to be a blessing of her lifetime…

Because it led to the discovery of the “Ageless skin secret” that enabled her to finally win the battle against visible signs of aging.

And this simple solution is now being used by thousands of women all over the world to erase wrinkles, even out dark spots, rejuvenate crepe skin, and slash the years from their appearance.

Even better, it doesn’t require invasive surgeries, painful beauty treatments, or expensive creams and serums that rarely deliver results.

Turns out, the desperate journey to look and feel younger started in a restaurant one great afternoon…

And what happened turned a supposedly romantic and sumptuous lunch into a “tragic” event that would remain forever etched in the memory of the lady spouse…but positively…

Because it was a real shocker that turned into a blessing in disguise!

Here is an excerpt of her story as she recounted it:

“You see, I was in a local restaurant with my husband…

Having a wonderful time…

It was a rare occasion because it never happened every other day.

The food was mouth-watering…

And the wine…amazingly silky smooth!

And we were really enjoying our time together…

It even took me back to how things used to be when we first began dating.

Honestly, it really had been a perfect day out…

Until our check arrived.

She placed the check on the table…

Then draped an arm around my husband’s shoulder.

What she said to him next still haunts me to this day: “Isn’t it just so sweet of you to take your mother out for lunch like this?”

I literally sat there confused for what felt like minutes, but was probably 10 seconds…

Before it hit me that she was talking about me! Mother? Seriously?

The truth is, Steve and I were both 58 and college sweethearts, even though he does have a bit of a baby face…

And many people assume he’s about 50…

How old must this waitress think I am to be his mother…late 60’s70’s?

I was honestly so shocked and upset that i didn’t even know what to say.

But before I could say anything, Steve jumped in.

A look of shock spread over the waitress’s face. “Oh my God, I’m sorry”, she replied.

And at first, I thought she was apologizing to me…

But then I realized she was still looking at Steve when she said it…

As if what she had really meant to say was: “I’m sorry that you have a wife who looks this old“.

And to top it all off…

The fact that this girl was in her early 20’s…with a svelte figure…and perfect porcelain skin…

Somehow just made the whole ordeal even much worse…

Like she was the embodiment of the youth and beauty I no longer had.

I turned my head to see the customers across the tables staring…

And the look of pity on their faces was unmistakable.

My cheeks flushed red with embarrassment…

And I desperately wanted to dive under the table and hide from the world. But instead, I sat there in silence…

Too upset to even speak.

I couldn’t even look Steve in the eye, because I was afraid of one thing:

What if it’s not just the strangers who thought I looked so old, but my husband too?

I mean, I was sure that he still loved me…but did he find me desirable?

The passion and intimacy wasn’t like it used to be. But that’s only natural…right?

On the other hand, my best friend’s husband had left her around that time for a younger woman!

And she confessed that it took her completely by surprise…

And while I did my best to help her through that trying time…

I also naively assumed it’d never happen to me. That Steve was different, and we’d be together forever.

But now, sitting in that restaurant…I felt the doubts start to creep in.

C’mon, let’s get out of here” Steve said.

I’m sure he could sense how embarrassed I felt.

On the ride home, I finally blurted out the question I was scared to ask: “Do you think I really look that old?”

My heart skipped a beat, waiting for him to answer.

Of course not. You’re much better looking than my mom” he joked.

Typical Steve…always trying to make light off bad situations. That was part of why I loved him so much.

But I wasn’t in the mood for his jokes.

Tell me the truth“, I pressed.

He let out a sigh, like this was a conversation he wanted to avoid.

Look, many people start looking older at our age. What really matters is that I love you for what you’re“.

I knew he was trying to re-assure me, but his words hit me hard.

What I longed to hear was that he still saw me as the sexy, young woman he fell in love with all those years ago.

But I’d just been given a cold, hard reality check…

I no longer resembled the same woman that he married…

And when I studied my face in the mirror that night, I couldn’t keep lying to myself…

My age had really caught up with me…how had I not noticed sooner?

Sure…I was using a few skin creams and moisturizers–like every woman–but clearly, they weren’t doing any good.

So as I looked at my wrinkles, crow’s feet, and dark spots…

I realized in that moment that I had two choices–I could either accept what was happening to me and wake up each morning looking older than the day before…or I could fight back against aging…

And do everything in my power to look like my younger self again.

It wasn’t a hard choice.

So I went online to search for a proven solution…

And spent a couple of weeks scouring everything I could find about skincare and anti-aging.

The more I read, the more I realized there were countless other women suffering just like me…

But nobody had found anything that erased visible signs of aging naturally and safely…

Because, while there were options like Botox, fillers, or plastic surgery

I didn’t want to end up looking “fake” or “plastic“.

Besides, I came across a ton of horror stories where women damaged their skin permanently from these treatments…

And some even had such bad reactions, they ended up in the emergency room(ER), and their health was never the same again.

There were even nurses and other medical professionals cautioning against the use of Botox…

Claiming it was just a money-maker for doctors and the beauty industry, and not nearly as safe as it’s made to sound.

And it was the same story with chemical peels. I saw pictures of women with badly burned and scarred skin due to a reaction to the ingredients.

I also heard a lot of talk about collagen supplements…

And while that was safe compared to the more invasive procedures…

Most people said they didn’t see any difference even after months of use.

So after weeks of research, I was really deflated because it seemed like the solution I was hoping for didn’t actually exist.

And just as I was about to give up the search, I met my long-time, but lost friend, Beth…

She was looking pretty younger and enviably beautiful!

And I wondered what her secret could really be!

At that point, I gathered enough courage to ask her…

Beth, we’re about the same age…but you look 20 years younger; what’s your secret?”

I honestly didn’t know how I expected her to reply. But what she said next shocked me…

Umm…it’s not that I don’t want to tell you…I’ve been sworn to secrecy“.

I couldn’t believe it.

It wasn’t just that she had good genes…

There was something else that kept her looking so young and vibrant.

I pleaded with Beth to share her secret with me…

Until finally, she relented.

And this is how I first heard about the wonder-working anti-aging skin secret.

Beth confessed that she hadn’t always looked that young…

And that only a year before I met her, she actually had wrinkles, crow’s feet, and crepe (thin) skin.

She said she looked no better or worse than most women the same age…

But that changed after a high profile family member introduced her to the woman behind the “Ageless skin” discovery.

Her name is Sandy DeRose.

Sandy spent years working by the side of one of the world’s most renowned anti-aging doctors.

Her job was to develop and create the formulas used in the doctor’s skincare products.

That meant she had studied just about every scientific journal and paper on skin aging…

And she knew more about this topic than arguably anybody else on the planet.

The formulas she created got such amazing results for the doctor’s clients that word quickly spread that Sandy was the real expert.

That’s why a select number of wealthy clients, including celebrities, reached out to work with her directly.

It meant she was booked months in advance. The only reason Beth was able to get an appointment was because of that high-profile family member.

And that was when Sandy showed Beth the “Ageless skin” secret.

“Within a couple of months, I looked at least 10 years younger“, Beth told me.

And by 6 months, people were convinced I was still in my 30’s“.

I have to admit, the results didn’t lie. Beth did look incredible. And it was exciting to imagine experiencing the same kind of results she did.

Beth said the best she could do was give me the contact number of Sandy’s personal assistant…

But said my chances of securing an appointment would be slim to none.

The very next day, I phoned the number and spoke to her assistant.

I explained my dilemma, and said it was urgent that I have an online appointment with Sandy.

But I was told that wouldn’t be possible…Sandy wasn’t taking on new clients.

I pleaded that I would do anything…but got nowhere. I hung up, deflated.

It felt like I was so close to discovering the solution and restoring my youthful looks…yet still so far away.

But I couldn’t risk giving up.

That would mean a lifetime of being unhappy every time I looked in the mirror…

Or, feeling like my best days were well behind me, and that my husband no longer found me charming.

Around that time, another idea hit me.

It was a little cheeky, but I decided to give it a shot anyway.

I phoned the clinic back the next day and told them I was a reporter writing a story about anti-aging in Hollywood

And that I’d love to interview Sandy over the phone to get her thoughts.

To be honest, I felt uneasy about making up that story. But I just didn’t know any other option.

Luckily, it worked…and a few days later, I had a brief call scheduled with Sandy.

I was a bit nervous as I dialed the number, unsure what I was going to say.

When Sandy answered, guilt got the better of me and I blurted out the truth: “I’m sorry but I’m not actually a reporter. My friend Beth told me about the Ageless skin secret, and I need to know what it is“.

A moment of silence followed.

I thought Sandy might be mad that I’d tricked her and hang up on me. But instead, she let out a little chuckle and said that it must be pretty important if I’d gone to such lengths.

She didn’t sound mad at all…quite the opposite, in fact.

So that’s when i told her about the humiliating incident at the restaurant…

And how desperate I was to not only hit pause on my aging skin, but to rewind it.

Sandy told me it was indeed possible and began talking passionately about what really causes the skin to age.

Even though skin is quite complex…

She told me there was really only one main thing to focus on: Lipids

Which are simply the skin’s natural fats.

They play a crucial role in maintaining its natural protective barrier.

Sandy explained how this protective barrier has a few vital roles…

Such as keeping out external attacks…helping the skin to retain moisture…and assisting in the natural self-repair process.

But when lipid levels drop, the skin becomes dry and thin, more prone to damage, and can’t adequately repair itself.

So, how do I know if my lipid levels are low?” I asked.

Sandy went on to explain that lipid levels naturally decline as we age…

Starting at about 20 years of age, we lose 10-15% of our lipids every decade.

What that means is that by the time you hit your 50’s…

About half of your skin’s natural lipids are already gone. it’s why the aging process seems to really accelerate at that point…

Because not only does the skin become more damaged…

But thin and dry skin makes that damage even more visible to the naked eye.

And unfortunately, it’s not really possible to avoid damage to the skin.

As Sandy explained, your skin is constantly under attack each day. And it’s not just from UV exposure

There are over 85,000 known chemical pollutants that can potentially damage the skin, many of which are in our homes and everyday items.

At the same time, even changing your facial expression causes minor tears in the skin.

When you’re young, these tears are easily repaired by natural lipids. But as we age, our lipids get depleted and can’t make the same repairs…

And we end up with wrinkles that gradually become more and more severe.

Now, Sandy made it pretty clear just how important lipids are for a youthful skin…

However, there’s one lipid in particular that she said was the real secret…

Ceramides are the main lipid responsible for how well your skin ages.

You see, ceramides make up 50% of the skin’s protective barrier.

The way Sandy explained it, ceramides are kind of like the mortar between bricks…

Where, in this case, the bricks are your skin cells…and just like mortar holds bricks together and keeps the structure strong…

Ceramides hold your skin’s protective barrier together…

Helping to prevent damage, as well as keeping moisture from escaping.

However, ceramides aren’t only found in human skin. Plants also contain ceramides…

Which are known as “phytoceramides“.

Now, what’s really amazing about phytoceramides is we can take them from plants to boost our own ceramide levels.

And Sandy said this is all completely backed by scientific studies.

In fact, a 2017 clinical trial in France showed something pretty remarkable.

There was a group of 60 human volunteers, all of whom had dry and wrinkled skin.

The researchers divided these people into two groups. The first group was given a daily dose of phytoceramides, while the second group was given a placebo–basically, a sugar pill.

And the researchers measured different skin markers at 15, 30, and 60 days.

Now, the final results really blew everyone away–both the researchers and participants…

Because what they discovered is that even after 15 days, the group taking the phytoceramides experienced significantly increased skin hydration, elasticity, and smoothness

While decreasing skin roughness, wrinkles, and water loss.

However, the group taking the placebo didn’t experience any of these same benefits.

Now, let me pause here for just a second…

Because when Sandy told me this, my head was spinning.

This was scientific proof people can reduce wrinkles in the space of a couple of weeks…

Without Botox, or any type of surgery or invasive procedure. This was exactly the type of thing I’d been hoping to discover when I contacted Sandy.

But Sandy had been through all the research papers…and she couldn’t find any evidence that topical application of phytoceramides worked at all.

Scientists doubted that it could get deep enough into the skin to work. But studies–like the French one–proved ingesting phytoceramides really do produce visible results.

Using skin creams and moisturizers that contain phytoceramides is like splashing water on the skin…

At best, you might add a bit of moisture to the surface temporarily. But it quickly dries out again.

What really surprised me was that I started to feel younger and more vibrant…

I had more energy and drive throughout the day.

I wasn’t sure if it was just in my head or not…until my husband Steve asked me if I was doing something different lately.

You see, I never actually told him about my phone call with Sandy, or about the supplement she had sent me…

Because I wanted to see if he’d notice the difference on his own. And for sure, he did!

By the end of the first month, he was complimenting me more than I could remember…

And I know it sounds silly, but I started to feel like “his girl” again–the one he originally fell in love with.

Friends and colleagues were clearly seeing a difference too. They were remarking how refreshed I looked…

And wanted to know my secret!

I just laughed it off and told them ordinary creams don’t work–which I now know it’s true.

The best description I can give is that it was like I was aging in reverse. All the wrinkles, fine lines, and age spots were retreating.

The solution had zero negative side effects…

Plus, anyone can afford it…

And best of all, it works for almost all skin types.

The lucky women who had secured appointments with Sandy got their hands on her ageless skin secret…and they were getting amazing results…

Yet, they were the only people who knew about it. It was only available to the rich, famous, and the well-connected. She didn’t advertise, and never mentioned the formula in interviews…

So millions of women were missing out on her incredible secret!

But I’ve seen first-hand how effective it is–looking better than I have in the past 2 decades.

As a result, I felt compelled to help all the women who were in the same predicament I’d been in…

To experience the same kind of life-changing transformation I’d been blessed with.

So I sent a text message to Sandy…

Telling her how happy I was to see a young and beautiful reflection every time I looked in the mirror…

Instead of the tired, old woman I used to see. I told her I’d love to help every woman feel like this…

And asked if she ever considered making it available on a much larger scale.

She called me half an hour later, sounding enthusiastic…even though her formula was only intended for her private clients.

She saw the way it changed lives and agreed that everyday woman had the right to experience this too…

Which is why now you can get your hands on Sandy’s ageless skin secret…

At a price anyone can afford.

So, if you’ll allow me, I’d like to tell you about it.

Purely Holistic Phytoceramides is clinically proven to work across skin types over and over again. Your skin will feel softer and more plump–just like it did in your youth.

You’ll feel a new surge of youthful energy and confidence that comes with knowing you look your best.

Within the first few weeks, you’ll get a lot of compliments coming your way.

And it really is simple–just take one capsule of Purely Holistic Phytoceramides each day with some water–that’s it!

And it gets even better…

Because the team at Purely Holistic figured out a way to pack three times as many phytoceramides into each capsule…

Meaning each serving is more potent at re-hydrating and repairing your skin…

Which gives you even better results in less time.

And to ensure you get a formula that’s fully optimized to rejuvenate your skin, the team fortified the solution with some other all-natural ingredients that are proven to replenish the skin even further.

One of these ingredients is Ascorbic Acid. Not only does it promote wound healing, researchers found out that it protects against damage to the very DNA of skin cells.

Ordinarily, the DNA gets damaged by free radicals. These are unstable atoms that roam through the body looking for other atoms to pair with. And while roaming in your body, these toxins cause damage to the cell DNA.

However, Ascorbic Acid works to mop up these free radicals and protect you…

Plus it can also reverse any DNA damage that has already taken place.

Even better, they added two other ingredients that are backed by science to make the solution more potent.

Vitamin D3 is one of them.

The difference between high and low levels of vitamin D3 is the equivalent of about 5 years of aging, making it pivotal in aging.

The best source of vitamin D3 is the sun. However, the UV exposure that comes with it isn’t great for your skin…

And that’s why so many scientists say a supplement that contains vitamin D3 is the best option.

The final ingredient is vitamin E

Which plays a critical role in protecting your skin.

Well…there is a term called “peroxidation“, which refers to a process where free radicals specifically damage lipids.

And lest you forget, lipids are the natural fats that keep the skin hydrated and protected.

Well, vitamin E is your first line of defense against peroxidation…

So, if you don’t have enough of it, then your skin is at a higher risk of becoming dry and damaged.

And while we do get some vitamin E naturally from foods, data shows that virtually no woman gets the recommended daily amount.

However, each serving of Purely Holistic Phytoceramides contains the recommended daily serving of vitamin E…plus a little extra just for added protection.

So clearly you can see why every woman who has ever laid her hands on this formula never turned back!
