You Can Never Have Enough Anitoxidants

Two of our favourites- A warm matcha latte, and Phloretin C F by SkinCeuticals. Two antioxidant powerhouses! Matcha tea is prepared by grinding green tea leaves, which means you consume the whole leaf, getting the full health benefits of green tea. Matcha is known to be loaded with antioxidants, having 20 times the antioxidants than blueberries or pomegranates.

Phlortein C F is a powerful antioxidant serum, protecting against free radical damage while stimulating collagen and elastin to prevent premature aging. This potent serum also helps diminish the look of fine lines and wrinkles, and dark spots.

Antioxidants fight against free radical damage, free radicals are unstable molecules that damage all living cells. This chain of unstable molecules is the main cause of rapid aging. Eating foods high in antioxidants and using an antioxidant serum daily helps slow the process of free radical damage.

What is a chemical peel, and why should you have one?

Ever since Samantha had a chemical peel on sex in the city, people have been afraid of the word chemical peels. Contrary to the fears, peels can be a highly effective way to improve and solve a number of skin issues. Yes chemical peels are a more aggressive approach then your every day face scrub, or your 1% retinal night cream but the benefits of having one far out weigh the reasons not too.

Chemical can be a scary word for some, especially when you’re talking about something you put on your face. In the case of chemical peels we use natural occurring acids, from natural resources like the wintergreen tree, apples, and sugarcane. These natural acids have tiny molecules that can penetrate the outer layers of the skin that will work deep in these layers to promote cell renewal and correct damage on the skins surface. Peels correct or improve skin conditions like acne scarring, age spots, fine lines and wrinkles, prevent acne, and reveal fresh younger skin giving you a glowing complexion. Side effects are minimal and very rare.

Peels are usually performed 4-6 times, two weeks apart, but peels are also wonderful ‘pick me ups’ for the skin. I suggest trying one out about two weeks before your next big event to reveal a bright, glowing complexion, because who doesn’t want that!
