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!

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!

  • Manuka Honey: Helps fight broad range of bacteria, soothing sensitive, irritated skin.
  • 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.
  • Vitamin E: Containing antioxidant properties, Vitamin E helps improve the skin’s water binding ability.
  • Jojoba Oil: With a composition is very similar to human natural skin oils, allowing rapid skin
  • Penetration, Jojoba oil helps to heal inflamed skin conditions by nourishing skin, softening and moisturizing.
  • 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.
  • Chamomile: This calming and soothing anti-inflammatory agent helps soothe sensitive, dry skin.
  • Retinol: Helps repair and reduce photo aging, making skin look younger.

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.

Skin Care Tips: Looking After Your Hands

Manuka Honey used to Treat Sore Throats, Coughs, Colds, and Acne

Friday, March 30th, 2012

Sore throats, coughs, colds, and acne. What do they all have in common? They can each be treated using the healing powers of Manuka Honey!

Manuka honey is gathered in New Zealand from the Manuka bush – Leptospermum scoparium – which grows uncultivated throughout the country. The high sugar concentration in this honey contributes to the arrest of a broad range of bacteria and fungi. Manuka honey supplies cells with a wide range of vitamins, amino acids and minerals while providing white blood cells with the necessary glucose to destroy bacteria.

Because of this, Manuka honey can be used to not only sooth sore throats, coughs, and colds, but also to help treat these ailments.

Dr Peter Molan from the University of Waikato has been investigating the antibacterial properties of honey for more than 10 years. He has made some significant discoveries and was awarded an M.B.E for his work. This includes the discovery that Manuka honey has additional antibacterial properties known as non-peroxide activity. The combination of hydrogen peroxide and the non-peroxide activity in Manuka honey has many health professionals now choosing to use Manuka honey in the treatment of wounds and infections.

Manuka Honey to Help Treat Sore Throats

Some forms of sore throat are caused by the streptococcus bacterium, which has also been linked to tonsillitis, scarlet fever, pneumonia, sinusitis, and ear infections.

Laboratory studies have shown that Manuka honey, with its anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties, can fight streptococcus bacteria and is thus useful to help sooth and healing several forms of sore throat.

Manuka Honey to Help Treat Coughs and Colds

Manuka honey has been shown to provide cold relief due to its antibacterial properties. In fact, the research team at Waikato University in New Zealand found that Manuka honey naturally destroys staph aureus and streptococcus pyogenese, bacteria present in colds and sore throats.

Manuka Honey to Help Treat Minor Wounds

Scientific studies have found that the application of Manuka honey can help resolve a variety of wounds including burns. This is because Manuka honey has the ability to ward off wound infections, reduce inflammation and promote healing.

“Many medical professionals are choosing to use active Manuka honey and are getting very good results with the treatment of wounds which have not been responding to standard treatment” (a trial of Active Manuka Honey on unresponsive skin ulcers was successfully carried out at Waikato Hospital in New Zealand: the results have been published in the New Zealand Medical Journal). 

Manuka honey is antioxidant-rich and active in reducing inflammation, so it’s also beneficial for resisting disease, ageing, and the maintenance of general well-being.

Sore Throats and Tonsillitis Information

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.

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.

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). Use daily after cleansing and pat gently under eye area, with fingertips, for the best results.

There is no reason why your skin cannot glow from head-to-toe. Plantogen offers a full range of professional make-up artists’ products such as moisturizers, masks, cleansers and more. We are committed to providing you compact, streamlined and effective skin care solutions. For professional skin care solutions, contact us at 1-888-851-6533 or click here today!

The Benefits of Manuka Skin Oil

Friday, February 10th, 2012

Plantogen® Manuka Skin Oil. Improved skin hydration in only 7 days !

Pure plant oils have been used since the beginning of time for their ability to treat, heal and soothe the body,  skin and even the mind through stress relief applications.

Whether your skin is dry, damaged, or oily, you will find that a plant oil can help restore your natural radiance. Unlike mineral oils which cover the skin with a waterproof film that can clog pores and produce unwanted effects, these oils actually help to nourish and heal your skin.

An excellent product to use on your skin is Manuka Skin Oil. This article will tell you about the essential oils of Manuka Skin Oil and how these essential oils help with skin care.

About Manuka Skin Oil

Manuka Skin Oil is comprised of a unique combination of four essential oils. Theses oils are Macadamia, Jojoba, Sandalwood, and Manuka. Each of these essential oils does their unique job to care for your skin. Here are some of the ways these essential oils care for your skin:

Macadamia oil is the base of Manuka Skin Oil.  Macadamia oil has high levels of Palmitoleic acid, which is anti-aging antioxidant. Palmitoleic acid is found in younger skin but diminishes as the body ages. Research has suggested that palmitoleic acid could assist in cell rejuvenation that helps heal skin and reduce dermatitis and eczema. The results of Macadamia oil are amazing!

Jojoba Oil is another oil base in Manuka Skin Oil. Jojoba oil has properties similar to natural skin oil that unclog pores, and lift residue and imbedded impurities. Jojoba also helps inflamed skin conditions such as acne, psoriasis, couperosis, and eczema.

Sandalwood oil is also important in Manuka Skin oil. Sandalwood is a superb skin cleanser that can be used for facial oil, bath oils, lotions and creams. It treats chapped, dry, and sensitive or inflamed skin. It is , non-irritating oil for the skin.

Last but not least, Manuka essential oil is used in Manuka Skin oil. Manuka essential oil is extracted from the leaves of the native New Zealand Manuka tree. Manuka oil has unique antibacterial, anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory properties, which help fight microorganisms that cause irritation and blemishes.

All of these essential oils have demonstrable healing properties to combat skin aging. This is Manuka Skin Oil is a wonderful skin care product for all skin types, including sensitive skin.

Skin Care Usage

Manuka Skin oil is recommended for anyone with dry, flaky or itchy skin on any part of the body, especially the face, elbows and legs. Use it daily for 7 days and witness a return to smoother, more radiant looking skin. We have found that even people who suffer from Acenic skin and take potent retinoids and benzoyl peroxide products to treat their acne end up with a double problem- redness, irritation and flakiness coupled with their acne. This is quite often due to the harshness of the chemicals in the acne products. We recommend adding the Manuka Skin Oil to the regimen as the Manuka natural antibacterial qualities help fight the acne bacteria while the combination of oils help relieve the dryness and irritation.
