Skin Care Questions Answered: Is a night product really necessary?

May 11th, 2012

Time and time again, we at Plantogen are asked the same question: “Is a night product really a necessary part of my daily skincare regimen?” And time and time again, we answer, “YES!”

Taking proper care of your skin before bed is just as important as taking care of your skin during the day (perhaps even more important!). This is because your skin undergoes a lot of wear and tear throughout the day. Everything you do affects your skin, from preparing food and washing the dishes to doing the laundry, playing with your children, and everything in between, including exposure to the sun and wind.

These external factors, combined with time and genetics, play a major role in the aging process. But you do not have to just sit there and take it; you can fight back!

Benefits of a Nighttime Skincare Product

•  The best way to prevent skin damage and premature skin aging is by maintaining a proper skin care routine, which includes nighttime skincare.

•   Helps repair damaged, aged skin.

•  Using a nighttime skincare product as early as age 25 helps slow the natural effects of aging.

•  Nighttime skincare products help fight free radicals, one of the major causes of skin aging.

•  Nighttime skincare products have been known to be more effective than day creams.

•  Skin regenerates three times faster at night than during the day, with cellular renovation activity reaching a peak between 2am and 4am.

 

Plantogen® Recommended Nighttime Skincare Regimen

1.  Cleanse your face, like Plantogen® Purifying Cleanser for Normal/Dry: Remove any traces of make-up off your face using a make-up remover and wash your face using a mild cleanser.

2. Use a toner, like Plantogen® Toner for Normal/Dry: Remove all traces or remaining dirt and make-up remover which can still be found on the face after washing.

3. Apply a moisturizing night cream, like Plantogen® Hydrating Moisturiser for Normal/Dry: Allow the skin to be deeply moisturized so the skin can regain it’s youthful appearance and elasticity.

4. Finish with Plantogen® Overnight Stress Repair: Help relieve the stresses of that day and improve the appearance of tired, stressed skin. Apply every night and wake up to refreshed, younger looking skin

Proper nighttime skin care can help improve the skins appearance and help you fight off those dreaded natural signs of aging!

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

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

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

Improve Skin Elasticity: Fight Back Against the Natural Signs of Aging

April 20th, 2012

Aging is a natural part of life. And there are two different types of aging: intrinsic aging and extrinsic aging.

Intrinsic Aging: Natural aging

At 25, your body begins to physically show signs of aging as your skin’s ability to regenerate slows down. At 45, your skin begins to thin and your body starts to experience hormonal changes. Collagen production begins to slow, and elastin – the substance that enables your skin to snap back into place – begins to lose its snap. This is when your skin starts to become more fragile as it loses its natural elasticity. And without elasticity, your skin begins to show the external signs of aging, including:

  • Fine lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Thin and transparent skin
  • Bones shrink away from the skin due to bone loss, which causes sagging skin
  • Dry skin
  • And more!

Extrinsic Aging: Aging caused by environmental factors

There are numerous external factors that can speed up the aging process, including:

  • Sun exposure – photoaging
  • Repetitive facial expressions
  • Gravity
  • Sleeping positions
  • Excessive alcohol intake
  • And more!

Tips for Improving Skin Elasticity

  1. Decrease Sugar Intake: You should keep your sweets to a minimum, at no more than 10% of your total caloric intake.
  2. Wear Sunscreen: Unprotected skin will lose its elasticity more quickly.
  3. Antioxidants: Antioxidants fight cell-damaging free radicals that can lead to premature aging.
  4. Avoid Smoking and Excessive Drinking: Smoke and excessive alcohol intake can be damaging to your skin.
  5. Utilize Plantogen® Intensive Firming Serum: An intensive firming serum with Green Tea (an antioxidant) and an active standardized botanical complex of plant extracts, a combination of Lady’s Thistle, which is a free radical scavenger, Lady’s Mantle, Horsetail, Soy Germ, Wheat Germ, Alfalfa, and Radish extracts. Results in firmer, younger looking skin. It is a gel base so it encourages the active ingredients to be more readily absorbed into the skin. Ideal for use around the eyes especially around any fine lines.

In a forty-five (45) day clinical study, a significant improvement in skin elasticity around the eye area and wrinkle reduction of 36.7%, was demonstrated, making skin look younger.

The Importance of Vitamin C: Health Benefits and Skin Care

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?

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

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

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

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

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.
