Anti-Aging Skin Care: What Anti-Aging Ingredients Work?

Friday, June 29th, 2012

As we get older and the regeneration properties of our skin begin to break down, the skin starts to show the first signs of physiological aging –losing moisture, tension, and elasticity. This natural aging process is further accelerated by exposure to the sun (photoaging) and free radicals, which damage skin cells.

How We Age and How to Fight Back!

Each person ages at a unique rate. Aging is a complex and varied process, affecting different people in different ways at different times in their lives.

75% of individuals begin to notice the physical signs of aging, such as wrinkles, between the ages of 20 and 30!

Many of these natural signs of aging can be minimized or even prevented with proper sun protection and various anti-aging products. But which anti-aging products should you use? Which anti-aging ingredients work?

Luckily for you, we at Plantogen® have done all of the research for you, weeding out the best anti-aging ingredients!

Antioxidants: The Secret to Anti-Aging Skincare Revealed!

Antioxidants refer to a group of compounds that fight free radicals.

Free radicals are molecules – formed through a natural process called oxidation – which wreak havoc on living cells, negatively affecting your skin and other vital parts of your body. These free radicals can be caused by any number of factors, from smoke and pesticides to sun exposure.

Antioxidants – like Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Catalase, and Beta Carotene – help neutralize the effects of free radicals, preventing them from doing damage to your skin.

Additional Anti-Aging Ingredients that Work!

  • Aloe Vera: Called the first-aid plant, Aloe Vera is powerful healing agent, promoting and aiding in skin healing.
  • Vitamin C: Promotes younger looking skin.

  • Green Tea Extract: This antioxidant helps protect against extreme environmental impact and resulting free radical damage.
  • Liquorice Root Extract: Helps diminish skin discoloration, promoting brighter, more radiant skin.
  • Fruit Oils: Promote smoother skin.

Dr. Oz Speaks to the Benefits of Bee Venom

Friday, June 1st, 2012

Last week we introduced you to a revolutionary new Plantogen® product, the Royal Facelift Mask. We told you how this natural noninvasive anti-aging therapy combines New Zealand Manuka Honey, Bee Venom, Shea Butter, Vitamin C, Evening Primrose Oil, Meadowfoam Seed Oil, Olive Leaf extract and Carrot, Citrus and Wheat Polypeptides in just the perfect way to help lift, tighten, and firm the skin. But you don’t have to take our word for it…

The world renowned Dr. Oz recently made some interesting comments about the anti-aging benefits of bee venom.

“The newest natural anti-aging therapies all have the same thing in common: bees. Find out why the poison of the honeybee could be the newest natural beauty craze. Some of the most potent ingredients in the beauty industry come from the beehive. You’ve probably heard about the healing benefits of honey, but you may not have heard about the anti-aging properties of bee venom. Your skin reacts to the venom as an irritation. Accordingly, your skin increases circulation and stimulates production of collagen and elastin, which plumps and firms fine lines and wrinkles. As a result, bee venom facials are increasing in popularity and have been shown to lessen wrinkles in four weeks.” – Dr. Oz.

How to use Plantogen Royal Facelift Mask

Apply onto clean skin avoiding the eye area. Leave for 20 minutes and wash off with wash cloth or wet cotton balls. For best results, follow with Plantogen Toner and Hydrating Moisturiser

It’s a Facelift in a Jar!

*No bees are harmed in the making of this product. To extract the venom, the bees sting a pane of glass which is placed alongside the hive and a gentle electrical current is run through it- this  harmlessly encourages the bees to sting the surface.

The Importance of Vitamin C: Health Benefits and Skin Care

Friday, April 13th, 2012

Chances are that at some point in your life, someone has told you that vitamin C is good for you. Well, you know what? They were right. But do you know why?

What is Vitamin C?

Vitamin C – also known as ascorbic acid – is an antioxidant, as we learned last week. It is also one of the world’s safest and most important nutrients, necessary for the growth, development and repair of all body tissues.

Vitamin C is involved in several body functions, including the formation of collagen, absorption of iron, the immune system, wound healing, and the maintenance of cartilage, bones, and teeth.

Health Benefits of Vitamin C

According to recent research, vitamin C offers several health benefits in the following areas:

  1. Stress: A recent study found vitamin C to be beneficial to individuals whose immune system was weakened due to stress.
  2. Colds: While vitamin C is not a cure for the common cold, several studies have shown it to help reduce the risk of more serious complications, such as pneumonia and lung infections.
  3. Stroke: One study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that those with the highest concentrations of vitamin C in their blood were associated with 42% lower stroke risk than those with the lowest concentrations.
  4. Aging: An American Journal of Clinical Nutrition study examined links between nutrient intakes and skin aging in 4,025 women aged 40-74 and found that those with high vitamin C intakes experienced a lower likelihood of wrinkles, fine lines, and dry skin.

Vitamin C and Your Skin

Vitamin C is just one of many antioxidants that help protect you against the damaging effects of free radicals, which are molecules that can negatively affect your skin and other vital parts of your body. Other benefits of vitamin C include:

  • Scientific data have shown that Vitamin C will help increase the amount of collagen production in the skin.
  • Vitamin C is also a natural anti-inflammatory, which can help reverse some of the effects of sun damage.
  •  By increasing the amount of collagen in the skin, the look of fine lines can be reduced.

Plantogen® products combine some of Mother Nature’s well known healers such as Manuka Honey, Chamomile, Jojoba, Aloe Vera, fruit oils, herbs, Vitamin A derived Retinol and antioxidants, like Vitamin C. Some of the Plantogen® products that utilize the healing powers of vitamin C include: Plantogen® Foaming Cleanser for Oily/Combination, Plantogen® Anti Aging Cream Cleanser, Plantogen® Skin Bright Gentle Microdermabrasion, Plantogen® Hydrating Moisturiser for Normal/Dry, Plantogen® Skin Brightening Anti Aging Moisturiser, and Plantogen® Overnight Stress Repair.

All Vitamin C in Plantogen is encapsulated in liposomes to help prevent oxidation or degeneration of the Vitamin C and allowing for targeted delivery.

The Benefits of Vitamin C

How do Antioxidants Help us Look Younger?

Friday, April 6th, 2012

Fine lines and wrinkles. They are a woman’s worst nightmare. They are also a natural part of aging. But why?

The truth is that no one knows exactly why we age or why we age at different rates. There are, however, a few theories about this, including:

1.   Aging is caused by accumulated injuries from ultraviolet light, “wear and tear” on the body, by-products of metabolism, etc.

2.   Aging is a predetermined, genetically controlled process.

3.   Most gerontologists (people who study aging) feel that aging is the cumulative effect of the interaction of many lifelong influences, such as diet, exercise and leisure, past illnesses, etc.

Each person ages at a unique rate, as the regeneration properties of the skin decreases. And as these regenerative properties decrease, skin begins to lose moisture, tension, and elasticity.

But you can fight these physiological signs of aging with the help of moisturizers and cleansers with active ingredients, such antioxidants! Products like these can help the skin improve its water binding properties and its regeneration capability.

What are Antioxidants and how do they help?

Antioxidants refer to a group of compounds that fight free radicals.

Free radicals are molecules – formed through a natural process called oxidation – which wreak havoc on living cells, negatively affecting your skin and other vital parts of your body. These free radicals can be caused by any number of factors, from smoke and pesticides to sun exposure.

Antioxidants – like Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Catalase, and Beta Carotene – help neutralize the effects of free radicals, preventing them from doing damage to your skin.

Moisturizers and Cleansers with Antioxidants

Plantogen® products combine some of Mother Nature’s well known healers such as Manuka Honey, Chamomile, Jojoba, Aloe Vera, fruit oils, herbs, Vitamin A derived Retinol and antioxidants. Three of these products are Plantogen®’s Anti Aging Cream Cleanser, Skin Brightening Anti Aging Moisturizer, and Skin Bright Gentle Microdermabrasion.  

Plantogen® Recommended Daily Skin Care Regimen

1.   First, use Plantogen®’s Anti Aging Cream Cleanser (daily). Apply a small amount of the cleanser into palm of hand. Apply the cleanser to your face and massage. Then wash off any excess with a warm wash cloth or sponge.

2.   Next, apply Plantogen®’s Skin Brightening Anti Aging Moisturizer (daily). Massage the moisturizer onto your face, avoiding the delicate eye area.

3.   Then, use Plantogen®’s Skin Bright Gentle Microdermabrasion (periodically). Use Skin Bright Gentle Microdermabrasion weekly on normal to dry skin and every 4 days on oily and combination skin. Apply a small amount onto your palm and apply to the face, avoiding the eye area. Then wash off any excess with warm water.

At Plantogen®, we know the anti-aging potential of Green Tea, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Retinol, and other antioxidants in neutralizing the effects of skin damaging free radicals.

Manuka Honey and Acne Treatment

Friday, March 23rd, 2012

Acne. It is something we have all had to deal with in varying degrees throughout our lives. To some, it is a sporadic annoyance, popping up every now and then at the worst possible times. To others, acne is a perpetual problem, plaguing the skin with little signs of relief.

If you have ever had to deal with acne, you know just how much of a struggle it can be. You try product after product, each claiming to offer a miraculous cure, but each failing to provide the results you desire.

If only there was a better way…

Well, have you tried honey?

Plantogen Pure Manuka Honey Active w Blackcurrant

I know, it sounds crazy, but Active Healing Manuka Honey has the ability to destroy a large number of bacteria especially, Staphylococcus aureus and Propiobacterium acnes, common causes of acne. Regular facials with such products as Plantogen® Pure Manuka Honey Active w Blackcurrant, Plantogen® Pure Manuka Honey Active, and Plantogen® Manuka Honey Mask with Hops can help reduce blemishes without over-drying or aggravating your skin.

Who knew honey could do all that?

Manuka honey is the most researched, most powerful medicinal honey on the market today. It is clinically proven to cure wounds, infections, ulcers and other skin conditions, such as acne. This is because Manuka honey is a natural antioxidant. As such, it supplies cells with a wide range of vitamins, amino acids, and minerals while providing white blood cells with the necessary glucose to destroy bacteria.

Healing Manuka Honey has the ability to improve cellular regeneration, thus improving skin texture and skin smoothness while also promoting collagen production.

At Plantogen®, we offer several products that utilize the healing power of Manuka Honey to help better control your acne (mentioned above). Our products combine some of Mother Nature’s well known healers such as Manuka Honey, Chamomile, Jojoba, Aloe Vera, fruit oils, herbs, Vitamin A derived Retinol and the antioxidants Green Tea, Vitamin C and E. Many of these ingredients provide visible and tangible improvements in skin tone and appearance, while others provide a soothing aroma that can assist in a feeling of relaxation and mental well being.

Skincare Tips for the Neck

Friday, March 16th, 2012

Every day, you meticulously go through your skincare routine. You cleanse and moisturize the skin on your hands, arms, legs, and, of course, your face. After all, what else is there?

Well, what about your neck?

Overexposure to the sun and the lack of an effective skincare routine leave your neck looking less than desirable. In fact, without proper care your neck is sure to prematurely display some of the most telltale signs of aging, like wrinkles, dry skin, vivid horizontal lines, and lack of elasticity.

Reasons Not to Neglect Your Neck

1.   Your neck muscle (Platysma) is not connected to the bone structure and thus quite prone to lose its elasticity.

2.   Your neck has less fatty tissue and sebaceous glands than your face, making the skin on your neck less resistant to dryness and wrinkles.

Because of this, your neck requires daily skincare treatment to maintain its natural firmness and smoothness and to prevent drying.

Plantogen® Recommended Skincare Regimen for Your Neck

Every morning, Don’t ignore the important neck area. After a through cleansing with  Plantogen® Purifying Cleanser apply Hydrating Moisturiser , an intensive hydrating moisturizer packed with plant extracts, vitamins and anti-oxidants. This power packed burst of antioxidants includes natural Manuka Honey, Green Tea and Chamomile extracts, Vitamin E, Vitamin C, Wheat Germ Oil, Apricot Kernel Oil, and Lecithin. The moisturizer will help diminish fine lines, reduce the signs of premature aging and relieving dryness. You should feel an immediate change to your skin – softer, smoother and firmer. Apply this moisturizer every day.

 

Every evening- This is the time to indulge in an extra rich product to hydrate, protect and renew the skin when you are sleeping. Take a generous amount of Overnight Stress Repair, rub into the palm of your hand and then apply using an upward motion [ try not to pull down on the skin ] and massage in the rich cream.

Tips for Caring for the Area Around Your Eyes

Friday, March 9th, 2012

The skin around your eyes is ten times thinner than the skin on the rest of your face. Because of this, and because the skin around your eyes is constantly in motion (blinking alone produces 10,000 movements per day), your eyes tend to be the first place on your body to show the signs of aging.

This can be further aggravated by stress, excessive sun exposure, smoking, and other environmental factors.

Tips to Keep the Skin Around Your Eyes Looking Healthy

  • Drink Plenty of Water: Water plays an important role in moisturizing and maintaining the elasticity of your skin.
  • Avoid Smoking: Nicotine constricts blood vessels in the face and under the eyes, making it difficult for nutrients to be absorbed. This leads to a breakdown of collagen.
  • Stay Out of the Sun: Ultraviolet rays are responsible for up to 90% of aging and can add several years to your appearance. Overexposure to ultraviolet rays causes melanocytes, the pigment-producing cells, to abnormally mature.
  • Wear Sunglasses to Avoid Squinting: Squinting puts unnecessary stress on the skin around your eyes, leading to the formation of wrinkles.
  • Get Plenty of Rest: Fatigue negatively affects the look of your skin, causing it to look increasingly pale.
  • Limit Alcohol Intake: Excessive drinking can lead to dehydration.
  • Use a Quality Skin Care Product: The tissue around the eyes has very few oil glands, and because of this, it lacks adequate natural moisture. This is why utilizing the right skin care products is crucial in your fight against aging.

The skin care experts here at Plantogen® have developed two skin care products specifically designed to lessen the effects of fatigue and aging around the eyes – Plantogen® Eye Lift and Corrective Eye Gel.

 

Plantogen® Eye Lift

Incorporating advanced GABA active technology, extracts of Vitamin C rich Australian Kakadu Plum & Licorice Root, Plantogen® Eye Lift cream helps minimize the appearance of fine lines and increases skin hydration.

How to Use: Use daily after cleansing. Pat gently around fine lines at corner of eye. Discontinue use if irritation occurs. If product gets into the eyes flush with water. If irritation persists, contact you doctor.

 

Plantogen® Corrective Eye Gel

Plantogen Corrective Eye Gel is a hydrating and soothing eye gel that helps to minimize the appearance of wrinkles and dry lines around the eye area. It acts on ‘bags’ under the eyes to lessen the signs of fatigue. Plantogen® Corrective Eye Gel promotes suppleness and makes the skin feel smooth.

How to Use: Use daily after cleansing. Pat gently under eye area, with fingertips.

Benefits of Using a Night Use Product

Friday, March 2nd, 2012

Plantogen Overnight Stress Relief

Throughout the day, our bodies undergo a tremendous amount of stress. From getting the kids ready for school in the morning and scrambling to find the time to get ourselves ready, to coming home after a long day of work to cleaning and cooking…we barely have time to breathe. By the time night rolls around, we want to do little more than just fall into bed and drift off into a deep sleep.

But nighttime is the perfect time to renew and refresh both the mind and body.

While most of us have our daytime skincare down to a science, many completely neglect nighttime skincare. However, it is during the night that our bodies and, most importantly, our skin regenerate. In fact, skin regenerates three times faster at night than during the day, with cellular renovation activity reaching a peak between 2am and 4am.

Because of this, it is important to help boost this reparative activity. This is where night use products, like nighttime creams, can really come in handy.

The Role of Night Use Products

If you are looking to moisturize, a day cream will work just fine. But if you want to help repair damaged, aged skin, a night cream is a must.

  • Applying night cream as early as age 25 helps to slow down the effects of aging.
  • The main benefit of nighttime skincare products is their ability to fight free radicals, repair damage caused during the day, and fight the outward signs of aging.
  • Anti-aging night creams have been known to be more effective than day creams.

Plantogen’s Overnight Stress Repair

After a thorough cleansing and exfoliation, applying Plantogen’s Overnight Stress Repair can help relieve the stresses of that day and improve the appearance of tired, stressed skin. A rich cream with Manuka Honey, Lecithin, Chamomile extract, Vitamin C and Retinol, Overnight Stress Repair helps improve the appearance of tired, stressed skin.

How to Use: Use every night after cleansing. It is rich and heavy for big moisture and a repair boost to tired skin

How Make-Up Artists Use Plantogen To Make Your Skin Healthy And Radiant

Friday, February 17th, 2012

 

Actors such as Will Ferrel and Sarah Baker use Plantogen Products to keep their skin radiant and healthy. They used Plantogen Corrective Eye Gel during a recent movie filming.

 

Some people are born with naturally amazing skin, hair, and good bone structure. However no matter how wonderful one’s skin may be, proper skin care maintenance is crucial to have and maintain healthy and radiant skin, especially when you are in the spotlight as a performer or business woman. This article will provide you information about the different types of Plantogen products make-up artists use to not only take care of their clients’ skin but also give clients the youthful radiant skin they desire.

Some  make-up artist skin care tricks are the following:

-Using squeezed lemon juice on body and keep it on for 10minutes then rinse to exfoliate your skin and remove dry, flaky skin cells.

-Using skin oil to give skin complexion a nice texture and hydrate skin.

-Cleaning and tidying brows with mist hairspray and a brow brush.

But more attention to skin care is necessary for the best skin care results.

Makeup artists that use Plantogen products know that the four main products a make-up artists should use to give their clients healthy,youthful, radiant skin are oils, exfoliation products, moisturizers, and anti-aging products.

One makeup artist that has tremendously benefited from Plantogen products is Bernadette Mazur, a makeup artist who works on many Columbia Pictures movies.

Just this week Mazur completed a film and used Plantogen’s Manuka Honey products on actors after an all day kissing scene resulted in ” beard burn.” The Manuka honey saved the day by improving skin texture and skin smoothness for next day filming.

Mazur has also used Plantogen Corrective Eye Gel on major Holly Wood Stars such as Will Ferrel and Sarah Baker. In upcoming months Mazur is using Plantogen products during the filming of a huge Ben Stiller movie.

You can have great skin like these superb movie stars as well.

Below we will discuss some Plantogen skin care products make-up artists use regularly to provide exceptional skin care needs to their clients:

The Moisturizing Benefits of Plantogen Skin Oil

Skin oil can add a great sheen to your skin but it can be messy. To resolve this messy dilemma, add a few drops of oil to your bathwater. Allow your body to soak and then towel yourself off.  This will provide your skin the right amount of moisturizing benefits without transferring the oil to your clothes. A great body oil to use is Plantogen Manuka Skin Oil, an ideal anti-aging supplement that contains high content of plamitoleic acid. The product is non-irritating, fragrance free and improves skin hydration in only 7 days.

Pour a small amount upon your hands and apply in gentle upward movements for best results.

The Exfoliation Benefits of Plantogen Products

Plantogen has many restorative dry skin facial products. Dry skin peels and flakes making your skin suffer from redness and feel taut and tight. One amazing Plantogen exfoliation product that helps eliminate and alleviate dryness, puffiness, and dark circles is Plantogen Gentle Facial Scrub. This product will sloughs away dead cells and give your skin a brighter, smoother appearance. Also the Plantogen Gentle Facial Scrub contains Jojoba beads with spherical and smooth shapes, which provide effective exfoliation without irritating your skin, so it is ideal for anyone concerned with redness and irritation .

Many mass market exfoliation products are considered as very abrasive and cause redness…not the case with Plantogen Gentle Facial Scrub.

Use this cleanser with water and cotton pads for best results. Follow up with a moisturizer.

Eye Fatigue Removal

As we all age, the appearance of wrinkles and dry lines around our eye area is inevitable but a makeup artist could use corrective eye gel to smooth out the skin around our eyes and minimize the appearance of wrinkles and dry lines. A great Plantogen product make-up artists use is Plantogen Corrective Eye Gel. The corrective eye gel is hydrating and soothing. It acts on bags under the eyes to lessen signs of fatigue because of the Witch Hazel Extract ingredient. It also promotes suppleness and makes the skin feel smooth because of the chamomile extract included in the product. Some other key ingredients in Plantogen Corrective Eye Gel are Aloe Vera (heals skin), Cucumber Extract (rejuvenates cells) and Green Tea Extract (neutralizes effects of free radicals and protects against extreme environmental impact).
