Do Your Hands Give Away Your Age?LEAD_handcream

While spending hundreds of dollars on anti-aging face creams and cosmetic procedures, women often neglect to take care of the skin on their hands, which can give away their true age.

Next time you smooth that pricey anti-aging cream onto your face, take a look at the skin on your hands, too. As Emily Velez of Revision Skincare, points out: “The hands show a person’s true age more than any other part of the body. We wash and strip them of natural oils, the hands also end up with more sun damage due to constant exposure, and they lose fat and volume as we age, which leads them to have a bony and veiny appearance.”

Cue a rise in the number of anti-aging treatments hitting the shelves that are especially formulated for the hands. “The hands age differently from all other parts of the body, so having a product that targets those differences is so important,” Velez says. “Revision Skincare’s Lumiquin® is an anti-aging product specifically for the hands that should be used nightly to brighten skin and reduce the appearance of age spots and uneven pigmentation.”

But simply moisturizing is not enough. “Don’t forget to exfoliate the skin on the hands. It will keep them fresh and smooth by removing dead skin cells and preparing them for other anti-aging products,” adds Velez. “And always apply a moisturizing sunscreen daily and continue to apply when out in the sun. I love Revision Skincare’s Multi-Protection Broad-Spectrum SPF 50 for its multi-tasking ability to protect the skin with sunscreen ingredients, antioxidants, and its blend of three new peptides that help skin appear firmer.”

 

Time For Some Skin Care Damage Control!

Now that fall is officially here, it’s time to do some damage control on our skin!  If you live in Texas, there is no doubt that your skin has experienced some of the negative effects from the sun’s powerful rays, so it’s time to correct that damage before it’s too late.  Antioxidants are key in cellular renewal, cellular turnover, and overall skin health.  Our ReACTIVE Anti-Oxidant Serum offers one of the most complete anti-oxidant defense systems available to help neutralize free radicals and promote anti-oxidant regeneration.  The clinical studies speak for themselves; when compared to other antioxidant facial products, ReACTIVE clearly provides more protection – just imagine what it could do for your skin!

Since we’re doing summer sun damage control, it’s important to think about our internal health as well.  Are you eating the recommended 5-9 servings of fruits & vegetables daily?  If not, you may not be obtaining all of the vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients to prevent aging and ensure good health.  Phytonutrients are plant chemicals that give fruits and vegetables their distinctive color while providing internal protection from the sun’s harmful rays.  When consumed, these plant nutrients confer health benefits to us.  Be sure to cover gaps in your diet by taking Phyto-5 Phytonutrient Complex.PHYTO 5

Jump-start your skin care damage control!  Right now at Sugar Land Plastic Surgery, purchase $300 worth of skin care, make-up, or vitamins and receive a FREE phyto-5 AND ReACTIVE Anti-oxidant serum!  While supplies last, so hurry in!

THE VALUE OF SONIC INFUSION!

The Sonic Infuser substitutes state-of-the-art sonic technology for finger-tapping to ensure effective, consistent infusion of anti-aging treatment products into the layers of the skin where fine lines reside. The Sonic Infuser’s gentle kneading action allows the Serum to be infused into the outer layers of the epidermis. As a result, the Serum can work immediately and more effectively to help promote smooth, healthy, hydrated skin.
