Pick of the Week: Nourishing Cream Exfoliator

Did you know as we head into our 40s and beyond, our cell regeneration slows down drastically, from 30 percent in our 20s to 50 percent in our 80s. Even the amount of collagen our skin has decreases by 1 percent each year. But even though our body’s ability to shed skin cells and generate new ones slows, it doesn’t mean that we should lose hope on looking young even as we age! If we don’t take care of our skin, old cells can pile up and leave our faces looking uneven, dull and dry, with clogged pores and excessive oil. That’s why exfoliation is so important!

Dark Circles and Eye Puffiness Be Gone!

We’re so busy these days that sometimes sleeping for seven to eight hours a day is something only a few can enjoy or remember! We’re running around taking our kids to school or practice, we’re shopping and running errands, and working to help support ourselves and our family. All that—combined with pollution, heredity, dust and lack of sleep—can create those darker tones and puffiness under your eyes. Which for me, is probably the area that really used to stress out my morning routine. My eye area was THAT area that I would do anything to change! To be a bit more specific, our eyes get puffy and dark because of gravity, which draws fluid to pool in areas where skin is thin. Not getting enough zzz’s will form dark circles, and lying down is what causes them to get puffy. But don’t worry, there is a product that can reduce the bulges and dark circles around your eyes, plus it helps diminish the appearance of fine lines. One application and you’ll be ready to conquer the day! It is my “go-to”…my “must never be without!”
