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!

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

Friday, 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!

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.

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.

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
