Anti-Aging Skin Care Tips for People over the Age of 30 :: Skincare Tips

Thursday, July 12th, 2012

As you age, you have to give up many things in your life, but your beauty doesn’t have to be one of them! You can fight back against the natural signs of aging – dryness, wrinkles, fine lines, and reduced elasticity – with the right skincare regimen.

Anti-Aging Skin Care Tips for People over the Age of 30

  1. Sunscreen: This tip applies whether you are 15 or 51. The sun’s rays can be extremely damaging to your skin, so it is important to protect yourself. It is essential to wear sunscreen each and every day. We recommend Plantogen® Protective Moisturiser with Sunscreen.
  2. Moisturize: Over the years, your skin becomes a bit dryer than it used to be. Because of this, it is important to use a good moisturizer, especially something with vitamins C. We recommend Plantogen® Skin Brightening Anti Aging Moisturiser.
  3. Green Tea: Green tea contains antioxidants, which will help reverse skin damage. We recommend Plantogen® Intensive Firming Serum, an intensive firming serum with Green Tea.
  4. Cleansing: Cleaning your skin daily will help brighten your complexion and keep you looking younger. We recommend Plantogen® Anti Aging Cream Cleanser.
  5. Toners: Toners help close pores, while firming the skin. It is best to use a toner after cleansing. We recommend Plantogen® Toner for Normal/Dry, a paraben free, gentle, skin toner with the soothing properties of Chamomile Flower, and Aloe Vera extract to gently remove skin impurities and refresh tired looking skin.
  6. Exfoliate: Using an exfoliating scrub several times a week will help your skin shed its dead, dull layer of cells, leaving a fresh, healthy skin behind. We recommend Plantogen® Gentle Facial Scrub, our natural exfoliant.
  7. Retinol: Retinol is a nutrient that helps repair and reduce photo aging, making skin look younger. We recommend Plantogen® Overnight Stress Repair, a rich cream with Manuka Honey, Lecithin, Chamomile extract, Vitamin C and Retinol that is ideal for evening use.

At Plantogen®, we have lots of tips to keep your skin looking its best, and staying its healthiest!

Anti-Aging Skin Care Tips for 18 to 30 Year Olds :: Plantogen Skincare Tips

Thursday, July 5th, 2012

When you think about anti-aging skin care, you probably don’t think of 18-30 year olds. Well, did you know that 75% of people report seeing the first physical signs of aging – such as wrinkles and fine lines – between the ages of 20 and 30? That just goes to show that you are never too young to start fighting back against the natural effects of aging. In fact, the key to healthy, younger looking skin when you are older is to start a regular anti-aging skin care regimen now.

Anti-Aging Skin Care Tips for 18-30 Year Olds

Sunscreen: The sun ages your skin more than any other external factor. Because of this, it is important to wear sunscreen (SPF 15 or higher) each and every day.

A Topical Exfoliant: Topical exfoliants remove the top layer of dead skin, improving skin texture, unclogging pores, and increasing the skin’s ability to absorb moisturizers. For this purpose, we recommend two products:

  1.  Plantogen® Gentle Facial Scrub, our gentle, foaming, exfoliating facial scrub, effective in sloughing dead skin cells to reveal a fresher, healthier looking skin.
  2.  Plantogen® Skin Bright Gentle Microdermabrasion, our gentle facial scrub that provides mild microdermabrasion and skin brightening properties, helping to dissolve away dull looking skin and to improve cellular turnover, revealing brighter, more even skin tone.
  3.   Plantogen® Body Scrub, our natural exfoliating and moisturizing body scrub.

Antioxidants: Antioxidants – especially Vitamin C – help neutralize the effects of free radicals, preventing them from doing damage to your skin. For this purpose, we recommend two products:

  1. Plantogen® Anti Aging Cream Cleanser, our water soluble, creamy cleanser with Vitamin C rich, Australian, Kakadu Plum extract, which helps dissolve skin dulling impurities, revealing healthier, younger looking skin.
  2. Plantogen® Skin Brightening Anti Aging Moisturiser, our anti-aging moisturizer with Vitamin C rich Kakadu Plum, which helps to improve skin hydration and skin tone for a brighter, younger looking complexion.

At Plantogen®, we have lots of tips to keep your skin looking its best, and staying its healthiest!

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!

Dealing with Puffy Eyes / Bags Under the Eyes :: Skincare Tips and Tricks

Thursday, June 21st, 2012

Are you tired of dealing with tired looking, puffy eyes? If so, you are not alone. Countless women have the same skin problem. But there is hope! There are several ways in which you can attempt to alleviate puffy eyes. But before we get into that, let’s first look deeper into the root of the problem.

What Causes Puffy Eyes / Bags under the Eyes?

There are actually several culprits that may be causing your puffy eyes, including:

  • Edema: Puffy eyes can be caused by a build-up of fluid in the tissues around the eyes, call the orbits.
  • Hormones: Fluctuating hormones can increase the potential for your body to retain fluids…even around your eyes.
  • Allergies: Are you allergic to anything? It may be causing those bags under your eyes.
  • Aging: Yes, unfortunately puffy eyes / bags under your eyes can happen as a result of aging.

But just because you suffer from puffy eyes does not mean you have to live with puffy eyes! There are several skincare tips and tricks that may help rid you of those dreaded bags under your eyes.

Plantogen® Recommended Skincare Regimen to Alleviate Puffy Eyes

  • Get Enough Sleep: Puffy eyes is a common symptom of sleep deprivation. So try to get a little more rest every night.
  • Elevate your Head When Sleeping: Lying down for several hours in a horizontal position allows fluid to build up around the eyes. So when you stand, the fluid that was resting under your eyes is suddenly being pulled down by gravity. To try and alleviate this, try elevating your head when you sleep to reduce the amount of fluid around your eyes.
  • Cooling the Eyes: There are several home remedies for treating puffy eyes, including: placing slices of cucumber on the eyes; placing moist teabags over the eyes; and even placing cooled spoons over your puffy eyes. A celebrity makeup artist trick is to keep Plantogen® Corrective Eye Gel in the refrigerator and then apply before makeup. This was used on eth set of a number of Columbia pictures movies, including recently in Men in Black 3!
  • Drinking Water: One of the potential causes of your puffy eyes could be dehydration.
  • See your Doctor: If the cause of your puffy eyes is allergies, your doctor may be able to prescribe medication to help alleviate your symptoms.
  • Plantogen® Corrective Eye Gel: This eye gel both hydrates and soothes, to help minimize the appearance of wrinkles and dry lines around the eye area. Plantogen® Corrective Eye Gel also acts on ‘bags’ under eyes to lessen signs of fatigue by promoting suppleness to make the skin smoother.

Active Ingredients & Benefits of Plantogen® Corrective Eye Gel

  • Witch Hazel Extract: Helps clean and disinfect skin. Refreshes tired looking skin.
  • Aloe Vera: Promotes and aids in skin healing.
  • Cucumber Extract: High in potassium, silicon, sulphur and other minerals said to rejuvenate cells.
  • Green Tea Extract: Neutralizes effects of free radicals and protects against extreme environmental impact.
  • Chamomile Extract: Soothing to all skin types.

How to Cure Puffy Eyes

Body Exfoliation – More than Self Indulgence :: Skin Care Tips

Wednesday, May 2nd, 2012

Do your regular skincare treatments just not seem to help? Do you moisturize and moisturize with no improvement in the look and feel of your skin? The problem may not be your skin care products, but rather a thin layer of dead skin cells that are preventing your skincare products from working.

The Solution: Exfoliating!

Body exfoliation – the process of removing dead skin cells from the surface of the epidermis – is more than just a self-indulgent luxury. It is actually a very beneficial step in one’s regular skincare regimen. Whether you have dry skin, oily skin, or sensitive skin, exfoliating once or twice a week can help improve your skin’s overall health and appearance.

Benefits of Body Exfoliation

  • Improves skin texture: Exfoliating removes old, dead skin cells, revealing new smoother skin cells.
  • Helps moisturize the skin: When dead skin cells are removed through exfoliating, it allows moisturizers and other skin care products to be better absorbed by your skin. This does not happen as easily when the surface is blocked by dead or dry skin.
  • Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles: A regular body exfoliation regimen will help reduce these natural signs of aging.
  • Opens and unclogs the pores: Exfoliating will naturally open your pores.
  • Helps to ease discoloration: The exfoliation process stimulates blood flow and leaves you with a healthy glow.
  • Leads to visibly brighter skin: Exfoliating removes dead skin cells that make the skin look dull and lackluster.
  • Improves overall skin health: Exfoliating speeds up skin cell renewal, revealing new layers that look and feel softer and smoother.

PLANTOGEN® Nourishing Body Treatment

Dead skin cells can build up on the surface and make skin look dull and prematurely older. Our PLANTOGEN® Nourishing Body Treatment (estimated time: 60 min) is designed to stimulate, exfoliate, and message dry and stressed skin.

This natural exfoliating and moisturizing body treatment utilizes the natural healing powers of Shea Butter from Africa and Manuka Honey from New Zealand. The end result: your body will look and feel radiant!

Skin Care Tips for Your Hands, the One Place You Reveal Your True Age

Friday, April 27th, 2012

You spend hours and countless dollars pampering yourself, looking for any way you can to reverse the sands of time. From facials and pedicures to massages and acupuncture, you do everything you can to look your best. Still, if you fail to properly care for your hands, all of your efforts may be in vain.

Did you know that the hands age faster than any other part of the body, even the face? This is because the skin on the back of the hand is much thinner than that of the rest of the body. And when you combine this thin skin with the constant wear and tear you put your hands through, it is no wonder that the hands age faster than other parts of the body.

In just one day your hands are exposed to a number of harmful substance, including oil-stripping detergents, cold weather, the sun, and numerous other damaging day-to-day activities. Your hands take a lot of abuse day in and day out. The end result, say experts, are wrinkles, fine lines, dry skin, crinkly crepe-like skin texture, and the noticeable appearance of bulging veins, which also grow larger over time.

But you can fight back! Taking care of your hands is not a difficult process.

Skincare Tips for Your Hands

  • Wear gloves when washing the dishes, gardening, or any time you are dealing with chemicals.
  • Use sunscreen. Doctors agree that avoiding direct sunlight and using sunscreen are the keys to younger looking hands.
  • Try a Paraffin wax treatment. Not only will your hands be softer, but the warm wax also increases blood circulation, allowing for the restoration of improved skin color and ease any joint stiffness. 
  • Soak your hands in warm milk to help strengthen your nails and hydrate your skin.
  • Use the right skincare products!

“There are certainly products and key ingredients that can make a temporary difference in how your hands look, and there are some exciting advances that could help make a real difference in your skin,” says dermatologist David Goldberg, MD, director of Skin Laser & Surgery Specialists of New York and New Jersey.

Plantogen® Recommended Skincare Regimen for Your Hands

Plantogen® Hand & Nail Therapy is a protective hand and nail cream with Hydrolysed Keratin, Retinol, Vitamin E and Sweet Almond Oil provides relief for dry, stressed hands and nails. These natural ingredients work together to help make your hands look younger and healthier.

  • Hydrolysed Keratin helps condition and restore unhealthy skin and nails.
  • Retinol helps repair and reduce photo aging, making skin look younger
  • Vitamin E helps improve the skin’s water-binding ability and helps neutralize the effects of free radicals – one of the major causes of skin aging.
  • Sweet Almond Oil helps protect and nourish the skin.
  • And more!

How to Use: Massage in well paying particular attention to the nail and cuticle area.

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.

Can Manuka Honey Get Rid of Acne?

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.
