Your Best Look

There is an old saying, “You never get a second chance to make a first impression,” and even though that is a clever little cliche, it is also the truth. That is why it is a mistake to focus on makeup or wardrobe if you skimp on skincare. We all admit that a beautiful outfit can really make our mood lift and our confidence soar but what is happening in the eye of the beholder? Maybe they are impressed with our outfit, but if our skin looks dull, tired, old or wrinkled, that skin will make as big an impression or bigger, than the outfit did.

Glowing skin will not help much if you are wearing unsightly clothes but good skin care and a fashionable wardrobe together are simply an unbeatable combination. You want to watch someone walking towards you see that beautiful dress, glance up, take a look at your face, and begin to smile. It’s all part of the same package; all part of your basic allure. After that, mascara and lipstick, a bangle bracelet or diamond stud earrings are the finishing touches, or icing on the cake!

There are some basic steps to taking care of your skin and they do not have to be complicated. Your skin needs hydration. That means drinking plenty of water and using a moisturizer on exposed parts of your skin that take a beating from the sun and the environment. That also means protecting your skin from the rays of the sun with a full-spectrum sunscreen or sun block.

Cleansing is a must with a cleanser made for your skin and gentle enough not to irritate it. Additionally, your skin builds up dead skin cells so you will want to use a good exfoliation gel or cream on your face and hands so that your skin is smooth and fresh. Next, a moisturizer for daily use is necessary on face, hands, throat and decollete. Really, that takes care of the basics of skin care.

Is there more? Of course! You may consider your neck a problem area or be concerned about dark circles under your eyes. There are special creams for that and many other problem areas. But if you take care of the basics you will look like a million dollars, especially in that designer dress.

What Are You Looking For?

Running a business that caters to women can be both exhilarating and challenging all at once. Women are not a one-size-fits-all proposition. Even focusing on one specific area like the facial skin care, there is still a lot to think about and a lot of decisions to be made. Many people have asked us so we are writing this little blog post to explain how we came up with a product line that we believe women are looking for.

It began, naturally, with talking to women. Women had a lot of things they wanted a face cream to do that the felt was not being met by the existing industry. For one thing, they all agreed they wanted something that could slow or even reverse aging. As extreme as that might seem, in today’s sophisticated research laboratories it is not that unreasonable a desire. The mechanism by which skin ages is understood. The things that occur that make skin look older are also well understood. Skin, in a teen and early 20′s woman, renews itself by a simple process. When it begins to run low on collagen it simply creates more. So skin care that wants to stop the effects of aging must do two things: penetrate the skin to get deep into the cells where they depletion is taking place and stimulate collagen production and hydration. The concept is simple. Skin cells that lose moisture collapse and form wrinkles. Skin cells that retain moisture and stay hydrated are smooth and  firm. That is where ingredients like Peptides and Hyaluronic Acid that are key to modern skin revitalization come in.

Women also did not want potentially harmful estrogen mimics in their skin creams. That seems so obvious it is amazing it had to be stated. But cosmetics companies have for years been using preservatives like Parabens even though there are possible links between parabens and breast cancer, and parabens have been shown to accelerate aging!

No wonder women did not want them used in skin care products! So when we created Smooth Skin Systems products we put in the highest quality medical-grade anti-aging ingredients currently available. We left out potentially harmful chemicals and wasteful fillers and anything that might irritate a woman’s face. What is left is just what women asked for: safe, effective anti-aging skin care products. It’s just that simple!

Is Dry Skin Making You Look Older?

A lot of factors can combine to create dry, damaged skin. Even in a young woman, climate and exposure can play a big part in a face that looks dry and lined. Many women who lead active lifestyles, skiing, cycling or hiking in an arid climate look many years older than they actually are. This is especially true in the Southeastern states.

Other factors can contribute to dry skin and they include hereditary factors – if your mother and dad both tend to have dry complexions you probably will too. Smoking, sun exposure and indoor dry-air heating can all contribute and make your skin drier than it should be.

Why does that even matter? The simple fact is this: moisture is what keeps your skin cells plump and smooth. When the skin cells lose moisture, the skin sags and wrinkles and fine lines form. Lips become crevassed and lines form from the nose down to the mouth. This can make any woman look older no matter what her age. It is not unusual for women to turn to injectible fillers, fats and collagens just to plump skin back up. Many times these measures are more drastic than are needed. The skin just needs to be moisturized more effectively.

What can we do to keep our skin hydrated? The first thing to do is to drink plenty of water. If your body is not well hydrated your skin is not either. Next, always wear a good sunblock when dealing with the environment. The UV rays of the sun are extremely damaging and wind and salt air can add another layer of damage. Protecting your face from those elements is key to looking beautiful with an active lifestyle.

Finally, use a good moisturizer with hyaluronic acid to hold a maximum amount of moisture into your skin. Choose a cleanser that is not harsh and won’t strip away the natural oils, use a night repair cream to really hydrate and nourish the skin allowing it to heal and replenish the natural moisture. You will be surprised at the difference and your skin will age more slowly with a higher level of care. Protect it and it will last you a lifetime of beautiful smiles!

Maximum Moisture, Maximum Effectiveness

When I hear women talking about what they need done to their faces the litany of complaints and solutions always runs along the same topics; one way or another the complaint is wrinkles or sagging skin. You will hear women bemoaning crows feet, lines along the upper lip, wrinkles in the forehead, deep lines from nose to mouth, fine webby lines on cheeks, crepe-y lines and sagging under chin. And then the solutions start coming up in conversation and range from injecting botulism, collagen or fillers, all the way up to full facelifts. With a side conversation about painful peels and dermabrasion.

Here is the simple truth: skin looks webby and lined because it loses moisture. Yes, that is all there is to it. A multi-million dollar industry has sprung up based on the lack of moisture in an aging face. Dry skin sags, flakes, wrinkles, and caves in on itself taking the face from smooth and beautiful to lined and wrinkled. It isn’t a secret. And neither is the best and most effective way to deal with it: moisturize. That’s right. That’s the big top secret that the surgeons don’t want you to know. All you have to do is moisturize, moisturizes, moisturize.

When our skin is young, we produce collagen constantly. Our skin cells renew and repair themselves over and over while holding moisture in and sealing damaging environmental factors out. As skin ages that process slows down and time takes its toll. The skin cells dry, the renewal process slows and firmness and suppleness are lost. This shows more on the face and hands than anywhere else because they are the most exposed.

So what is the best response to the damage that age and sunlight have caused? Moisturize with a face cream that contains the best grade of hyaluronic acid possible. Hyaluronic acid is found naturally in skin and the moister the skin is the higher concentrations of HA in the cells. Hyaluronic acid plays a big part not only in skin hydration but healing and cell renewal.

Consider a powerful skin hydration formula like Maximum Moisture to give your face the best look possible. Looking better does not have to cost a lot and hurt! Looking better can be as simple as restoring the body’s natural functions with natural ingredients and no parabens, added fragrances or animal testing! Try Maximum Moisture today!

Easy Does It!

As we age, many of us wish we had younger skin.  Our skin may be sun or smoke damaged, discolored by hormonal changes and we may have developed special sensitivities like rosacea, allergies or other sources of skin tenderness.  We try to keep our skin clean with a mild soap or cleansing gel and use a good moisturizer, but when it comes to anti-aging solutions they all seem like they would be too harsh for us.

A woman with very sensitive skin may react badly to chemical peels or injections of botox or fillers.  Surgical solutions like lifts can cause significant bruising and scarring on delicate facial skin. But it is precisely that older, more fragile skin that tends to wrinkles and obvious aging. What is an older woman to do?

Years ago there were no good options. But now, research has revealed effective and non-invasive anti-aging methodologies you can use right at home. Ingredients and formulations that can help your skin renew itself naturally. You can gently and very enjoyably treat yourself to a “spa day” in the privacy of your own house without the cost of the spa and without the discomfort and possible damage of medical intervention. Today’s anti-wrinkle formulations are focused on the structure and renewing systems built right into your skin cells. The main focus is two-fold: it is a matter of re-energizing the skin’s natural production of collagen, and restoring moisture to depleted cells. Moisturizers and wrinkle creams containing hyaluronic acid and peptides can do exactly that. Applied to your skin after a thorough cleansing, face creams sink deep into the layers of your skin penetrating to where the ingredients can do the most good. Your skin goes from dry to hydrated, from lined to smooth as the healing process of the cells is stimulated just the way it worked when you were 25. You will notice measurable results but you will not have to endure painful bruising, scarring, or pain from a chemical peel. This is skin care the way it was meant to be.
