How Long Before You Know Your Skincare Works?
How Long Before You Know Your Skincare Works?
FRIDAY, MARCH 19, 2010

Are you a tried and true beauty junkie? If your bathroom shelves are overflowing with jars, bottles, and tubes, you’re not alone. Most women actually buy over three times more cosmetics than they could ever use in a lifetime. It’s a bit like shoes actually – you can never have too many pairs! We tend to have a short attention span for our skin care; we may use something new a few times and forget about it. Everyone wants instant effects and we aren’t always patient enough to put the time into a product or regime to really give it a fair shake. Generally, you need to use any product consistently for 3 weeks to see results, and in some cases, you may need twice that length of time. Just about any skin problem - sun damage, uneven skin tone, acne and blemishes, redness - can be improved by a conscientious daily ritual using a combination of key ingredients and formulations that suit your skin type and concern.  Sticking with the same old products as your skin changes doesn’t work. Don’t be afraid to experiment when your skin care stops working for you. And don’t use the same tired old moisturizer that your mother used either. You don’t have the same skin as your mother did then or now, so you need something that works for you.

Do Facial Exercises Really Work?
Do Facial Exercises Really Work?
THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 18, 2010

Your face is the most exercised part of your body - it has 44 muscles. It gets plenty of exercise every time your muscles contract and relax. Since these muscles are attached to the skin (as opposed to the bones or tendons like other muscles in your body) every time they move—when you speak, eat, laugh, cry or scream —your skin moves. When you contract those muscles, that repetitive motion can cause wrinkles to appear in the skin. At the risk of going up against tradition, in my humble opinion, exercising those muscles more is just going to accentuate your wrinkles. Over time, creases form where the skin was contracted. The more you make the same facial movements, the deeper your lines get. The most compelling argument is that if facial exercises work, Botox® would not. Botox® stops muscles from moving, which we know reduces lines, creases, and wrinkles – just look at my forehead for proof!
