Alex Acworth was glowing on her wedding day!

Alex Acworth was glowing on her wedding day!

As you know, my daughter Alex Acworth recently married on April 28th, 2012. She looked absolutely radiant in her wedding dress. I have never seen my daughter as beautiful as she was that day.

As for being the mother of the bride, we mothers know how stressful the activities can be leading up to the day. I broke out in a skin rash all over my body that I did not recognize. It looked like little patches of redness and did itch like crazy. It was stress and after it was all over, it started to go away. Now the facial skin I had been working with our skin care specialist for months to make sure I looked good in the photos at the wedding.

We started off with her analyzing my skin. She promptly told me that I had sun damage (from earlier years laying out in the sun being a sun worshiper) was still on my face in spots. I even exfoliate like I’m suppose to. However; that was not enough for a dramatic change in my skin. I started with my first peel that was a little more agressive yet willing to take the chance of looking better than I have lately. I peeled. I looked great. I had a second one a month later and didn’t peel as much since I probably didn’t have to take as much dead skin layers off as the first time. I’m so glad that I did it. I felt beautiful at 47 years of age and looked better than I have in the past few years.

Ladies, I recommend the peels. Whether you need an agressive peel to really eliminate the sallow, yellowish look from damaged skin or just feeling like you have sluggish skin or just plain want to look more polished than a peel is for you. We have been introducing some really nice peels that do not peel as agressively as mine did for over the summer. Remember you have to stay out of the sun to protect your skin. So bring out the big hats to shade your fresh skin. It’s totally worth it. The newest peels are a Triple Enzyme peel that exfoliates from beneath the skin and will not peel. the enzymes are great for all skin types from young to mature. It will reduce the bacterial and remove the dead skin cells giving a super clean feel, tones and firms the skin for a polished glow. View more information in detail about our chemical peels and skin peels at http://www.indulgesalon.com/skinpeels

The second peel we are introducing is the Antioxidant Ex-fusion which is LOADED with nutrients, antioxidants that will provide oxygen to the cells while protecting and repairing the cells. Realizing that we need to put up a protective barrier is essential to really good skin. I don’t know if you know this but your skin has little free radicals in there working against your beauty not for it. We must give the skin support to fight these little free radicals. I know I joke about this but girls, we must continue to fight for our youthfulness and beauty.

Take two quick tests to see if your eye wrinkles are dry or due to aging

June 05, 2011 By: Kimberly Category: Caring for your Skin, facial treatments, Guinot Skin Care products, Indulge Body Butter Moisturzing Bars

Are fine lines just a sign of dryness? see if dryness is magnifying your creases take a simple test: Apply a moisture Masque such as Guinot Hydra Mask and leave it on for the recommended time. When you rinse it off, does  your skin look fresher?  fuller? smoother? If it does look better than your skin was dehydrated. If it doesn’t look any different,your lines then are age related. I know that stinks but you can add some wrinkle fighting retinol, peptides or antioxidants into your routine. A wrinkle serum such as Guinot Age Logic Cellular Renewal is benefitial to helping to reduce the size of wrinkles and minimize them. Age Logic Cellular Eye Renewal Serum

Do you really have sensitive skin? More than 40% of Americans “believe” they do but not all of the self Doctoring

proves true. Dermatologists check for the condition in part by asking a series of question such as:

Does your skin typically turn red and blotchy when irritated?

Is it prone to allergic reactions?

Does your skin burn easily in the sun and windburn when outside?

does it flush from changes in temperatures both hot and cold?

is it dry, delicate and thin almost translucent? 

When you are at home, study your face in a magnifying mirror preferrably with a light so you can see close up. The pores of sensitive skin tend to look pink due to inflammation. This little clue was mentioned by Dr. Dennis Gross, MD,  a cosmetic dermatologist in New York City. If you do have sensitive skin, avoid gritty scrubs and harsh ingredients like alcohol, acids, and benzoly peroide; only use calming cleansers and ltoins containing natural anti-inflammatories adn antioxidants. I recommend the Indulge Body Butter lotions that are super light and almost good enough to eat. The ingredients are almost 100% natural safe to use on the face. These lotions and creams can only be purchased at Indulge Salon. For a location nearest year check out the locations tab at http://www.theindulgesalon.com.

Sugar and the effects on aging skin

April 17, 2011 By: Kimberly Category: facial treatments, Guinot Skin Care products, Indulge Body Butter Moisturzing Bars

This information will blow your mind. I personally am a huge intaker of sugar. It didn’t happen all at once. It happened about about 16 years ago when my son was in the hospital trying to stay alive. He was 11 weeks old at the time and hooked up to all kinds of machinery to keep him alive. I am happy to say that he is 17 now and still kicking. The point of this story is that I used to have a break during the time he was in intensive rehab and I went to McDonalds to have a break. My break was going through the drive through for a medium diet soda. Yep! Right there I said it. I put my order in for a beverage because I couldnt stomach the food and I paid them their 1.06, they handed it out and boom done. I didn’t have to ask any questions, they didn’t ask me any questions that required difficult decisions and they didnt know me. Even better. Long story short the mental release I get when I drive to McDonalds to this day every morning is all about the habit that was created. I truly have the sugar addiction which then I crave more sugar during the day. I couldn’t stay awake during the night if my son needed me after he was home from the hospital. I did everything to stay awake. If I hadn’t drank at least 4-7 32 oz of soda a day, I would be really tired. I have cut back since then but mentally I didn’t realize what I had been doing to my body. The cells over your body can become numb from taking in all of ththe sugar and then the body produces its own insulin which could cause our body to be resistant and age us eleven to twenty years of life. Some of the effects can become irreversible. But if caught early enough the outcome can be changed.

Blood sugar and insulin overload can lead to these results:

  • obesity
  • clinical depression
  • premature aging of the skin
  • hypertension
  • pandemic killers such as heart disease in women, cancer, Alzheimer’s and Parkinsons

After this list, we should all quit right? Remember in order to quit something you have to replace with something that is more important to let go of the bad habit. This is a habit that we have told or allowed our bodies to just do it on automatic. Our body can be a traitor by being sneaky during blood tests. Our body is taught to survive so it will do anything to proetect helathy or unhealthy habits. This is why so many people have gone on diets yet to gain all their weight back and more.

To help kick this habit, our body has chemical reactions every day. Billions of transactions are happening without our knowledge. There is a word called Phorylation. this word will contribute to control weight, blood sugar, insulin levels and well lifespan. When insulin is released by the pancreas, it races to our muscle cells. Bottom line,  is this little miracle helps to control the adversary, helps control the insulin and blood sugar. The better insulin management, the younger you look and thinner you remain. Before I run out of space read more about ACCORD (Action to Control cCardiovascular Risk in Diabetes) study. I hope this brief infrioamtion will help you make better choices not just to look younger but to have a committment yourself and your family by cutting back on all those grocery story goodies that are packaged, candy, soda, etc.  Stay tuned on some basic preventative solutions to the sugar highs to reduce that natural insulin.
