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.

The Benefits of Skin Brightening Products: Younger, Radiant Looking Skin

Friday, June 15th, 2012

Do you ever wonder how celebrities get such beautiful, radiant, and younger looking skin? No, it’s not superior genetics. Radiant, younger looking skin is achieved through a daily skin care routine and the use of skin brightening products, creams, and moisturizers.

But what ingredients work?

What products are the best?

The Skin Brightening Benefits of Vitamin C, Liquorice Root Extract, Kakadu Plum, and Plant Extracts

  • Vitamin C has been proven to slow cell proliferation; maintain younger, increase the production of collagen and elastin in the body; repair injured skin; and provide superior skin protection.
  • Liquorice Root Extract is produced from the roots and rhizomes of the Glycyrrhiza glabra plant. Studies have shown that Liquorice Root Extract may be of benefit for use in skin brightening products since it contains liquiritin and isoliquertin, flavonoid containing glycosides, which induce skin brightening by dispersing melanin pigment and enhancing more even pigment distribution.
  • Kakadu Plum, the world’s richest fruit source of Vitamin C, has been known to help minimize dark spots, helping you achieve radiant, younger looking skin.

Because of the above factors, many skin care products have begun to utilize Vitamin C, Liquorice Root Extract, Kakdu Plum, and other natural products to help reduce fine lines and wrinkles, providing you with beautiful, younger looking skin.

Plantogen® can help!

Realize the skin brightening benefits of Vitamin C and other natural ingredients – such as Kakadu Plum, Bamboo Stem Powder, Licorice Root, antioxidant rich Green Tea extract, fruit enzymes, and fruit acids – with Plantogen® products. Our plant derived spa therapy combines pure plant extracts with scientific know how.

Skin Care Tips: The Benefits of Bee Venom & Plantogen® Royal Facelift Mask

Friday, June 15th, 2012

Plantogen® Plant Derived Spa Therapy was founded on the belief that natural ingredients could be used as effective skincare products to help achieve healthier, younger looking skin. We combine the most advanced scientific knowledge with plant-based technology and natural ingredients. And we are always on the lookout for the newest trends and advancements in natural skincare.

So what is the newest trend in the skin care industry? Bee Venom!

How Bee Venom Works as a Natural Skin Care Product

Bee venom interacts with skin in a very interesting way. Your body and your skin identify bee venom as an irritant, thus increasing blood circulation and stimulating the production of collagen and elastin. This causes the skin to plump, naturally lifting, tightening, and firming fine lines and wrinkles.

Because of this, Bee Venom Masks have been quickly gaining popularity in the skin care industry.

Plantogen® Royal Facelift Mask: A Natural Bee Venom Mask

Plantogen® Royal Facelift Mask – a 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.

How to use: 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.

* A patch test is recommended before use.

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.

Why you can’t leave your Makeup on at Night :: Professional Skincare Tips

Friday, May 18th, 2012

Each and every morning, millions of women apply makeup. But how many of these women actually remove their makeup each and every night?

Sometimes we forget to remove our makeup. Sometimes we are just too worn out after a long day of work, chasing our children, and keeping up with the house. And sometimes we just choose not to remove our makeup. After all, it is not important, right? Wrong!

The Importance of Removing Makeup Every Night

  1. While we sleep, our bodies naturally eliminate toxins through the pores. If you fail to remove your makeup at night, your pores may be too clogged to allow this natural detoxification to take place.
  2. Makeup, to a certain extent, can be a drying agent. Failing to remove your makeup at night can lead to dry, irritated skin. This is also why it’s so important to wear a moisturizing night cream – like Plantogen® Overnight Stress Repair – to allow your skin to recover from an entire day with makeup on.
  3. Skin regenerates three times faster at night than during the day, with cellular renovation activity reaching a peak between 2am and 4am. Failing to remove your makeup at night can hinder this regeneration.
  4. If you do not regularly remove your makeup at night, it may cause breakouts. It can also cause you to become increasingly prone to infections and bacteria.
  5. When makeup becomes impacted into your facial pores, it makes them look larger and more noticeable.

Leaving your makeup on once in a while shouldn’t hurt. Just don’t make a habit out of it.

Plantogen Recommended Skincare Product for Effective Makeup Removal

Plantogen® Purifying Cleanser for Normal/Dry: A creamy, gentle cleanser that helps dissolve and lift impurities without drying the skin. Cleans deep down to remove dirt, oil and make-up. Contains natural Manuka Honey, Chamomile extract and Vitamin E. Water soluble.

How to Use: Use daily. Apply small amount into palm of hand. Apply to face and massage well to remove makeup, dirt and impurities. Wash off with warm washer or sponge.

Additionally, using a hydrating mask every week can help make your skin look and feel heathier than you ever imagined possible!

Makeup Myths and Legends

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!

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.

Anti-aging Treatments for Your Hands

Beautiful Hands – Skin Care Tips For Beautiful Hands

Skin Care Tips: Looking After Your Hands

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.
