Cinnamon can slow down the emptying of the stomach. This helps you eat less and create the necessary calorie deficit to lose weight. Also, the sweet nature of cinnamon can help reduce a sweet craving.

No makeup movement embrace your natural beauty

no makeup movement alicia keys gal gadot kule jenner

Empowerment to embrace your natural beauty

Many women especially celebrities were encouraged to wear makeup in order to perfect all the time. The race towards today’s beauty standard can increase your insecurities to the point you don’t have the courage to walk out of the house without makeup. Women often feel that makeup is the perfect shield against judgment and often opt to put on this mask to feel comfortable and hide their insecurities of not being beautiful enough. The unrealistic beauty expectations that no human can achieve completely is a lost quest.

In 2016 Alicia Keys stopped wearing makeup in public in her journey toward self-empowerment to show her true face, mind, soul, thoughts, dreams, struggles, and emotional growth.  Keys only focus in enhancing her natural glow with a complete skin care regimen, serums, masks, rollers, oils, facials, spf, healthy meals and exercises. Many artist followed her path posting bared faced Instagram pictures.

True confidence and empowerment is to accept ones flaws and work to fix your skin issues instead of using makeup to cover it up to exude confidence. Many skin issues are due to bad habits that we need to fix from the inside out and protect the skin from the harsh environment. This will help to decrease the signs of aging in the long run, something that makeup won’t be able to cover.

In addition, love yourself and stay positive to supporting each other in the realization that worth isn’t based on looks. When you chose to wear makeup once in a while on a fancy occasion to change you look and have a dramatic red carpet entrance is awesome but not to depend on makeup to feel beautiful to please the tough audience.

Embrace your natural face with flaws and all.

Be proud to be you!

Best ways to hydrate your skin

water Sodium hyaluronate swisszell eye cream moisturizer

Drinking water hydrates your body from within but is distributed to the entire body. The moisture level of the skin depends on environmental factors and skin care regimen.

Environmental factors

Weather conditions such as extreme winter can leave the skin dry and itchy. It needs a strong barrier moisturizer to protect the skin. Then indoor heated air accelerates water loss from skin cells.

In hot dry windy weather conditions can speed the evaporation of moisture from the surface of the skin creating trans-epidermal water loss. Wind gust whisks moisture away from the epidermis breaking the protective barrier of lipid and protein cells in the skin. Humidifiers can help balance the indoor humidity levels but still need a moisturizing barrier for outdoor activities.

Skin care regimen

We often use the same skin care products during all four seasons. Sometimes we have to change some of them to adapt to the skin needs during the change of seasons. Winter is harsh on the skin and needs extra moisture to keep the skin hydrated. You have to avoid face wash that strip your skin of their natural oils and use extra moisturizing cream with sodium hyaluronate.

Sodium hyaluronate

Sodium hyaluronate is the smaller form of hyaluronic acid derived from sodium salt.  This potent suspended molecule penetrates deeply into the dermal layers of the skin. This ingredient has natural moisturizing factors to retain water in the skin for a hydrated and smooth feeling.

This natural fluid is found in the body that acts as a lubricant on the skin to restore moisture and prevent friction or abrasion. The topical medication can treat skin ulcers, wounds, dry and scaly skin. Due to its restorative properties helps repair tissues by binding collagen and elastin in the skin to improve firmness and elasticity. Its antioxidant properties help fight free radicals caused by environmental pollution.

Skin care products with this humectant help protect the skin from transdermal water loss. It helps keep extremely dry skin from flaking.

Sodium hyaluronate provides exceptional moisturizing benefits reducing the signs of aging for all skin types.

A diet rich in fatty acids, drinking a lot of water and this skin care humectant can truly keep your skin fully hydrated.

Pillows: How They Can Be Harming (And Helping!) Your Skin

When it comes to helping your skin look its very best (younger, smoother, clearer), there are three things I know for sure:

1. Use well-formulated products for your unique skin type.

2. Sunscreen is the most powerful anti-aging product on the planet.

3. Your lifestyle choices matter.

In this post, I’ll be talking about one lifestyle choice, how you sleep at night on your pillow. You spend approximately 2,500 hours per year spent curled up with it, so good decisions matter depending on your skin concerns and what you’re looking to prevent or improve.

If you have under eye puffiness…you’ll want to sleep on two pillows at night. The theory here is that when your head is elevated, it helps to reduce fluid retention so you’re less puffy both in the face and under the eyes in the morning. (It’s also important to use light-weight eye cream to eliminate puffiness and keep it hydrated such as SwissZell Instant Eye Wrinkle Defense Cream.

If you have tired-looking skin…you’ll want to sleep on a single pillow that is thinner with a low elevation. The theory here is that during the daytime hours, you’re in an upright position for 16 hours and the blood can move away (downward) from the face making the skin look pale and tired in people who are genetically prone to this. So at night, you want to have your head as flat as possible (and ideally, tilted a bit backward) to re-balance that flow and stimulate circulation to the face to give an inner glow. It’s also why I suggest using a well-formulated and hydrating serum like this one.

If you have deep wrinkles that run from the nostril to the corner of the mouth – you’ll want to sleep on your back. Or if you’re a side sleeper, position your head on the lower corner of your pillow. The theory here is that to prevent the deep creases (known as “parentheses” or “marionette” lines), you want to avoid a squishing of the cheeks, which only exacerbates these lines that come naturally with age due to smiling and laughing.

If you have deep horizontal wrinkles across your neck – you’ll want to sleep on only one pillow that is thinner with a low elevation. The theory here is that if your head is elevated while you sleep (especially for those with shorter necks), you are creasing the skin by having your head tilted in a downward position. This is also known as “tech neck” where the 45-degree angle created when you hang your head down to look at your cell phone during the day causes premature folds and wrinkles in the neck. You always want to keep your head as straight as humanly possible. Someone once told me, “You’re only as young as your neck.”

If you have chest wrinkles above your breasts – you’ll want to sleep on your back. Known as “cleavage wrinkles”, these are deep, vertical creases caused by sleeping on your side, where gravity forces the top breast to bend farther past the body’s mid line than it should. Sleeping on your back is the best option for preventing these.

Note: If you’re a side sleeper but want to sleep on your back, some companies have invented pillows that can help train you into this new position. I’ve never tried any of them but have come across them online through the years, so do an internet search for these to see what you can find.

If you’re prone to breakouts…many people don’t realize this, but when sleeping on your pillowcase for 7-8 hours a night, you are transferring a lot of oil from both your hair and face onto the pillowcase. Oil ends up on your face when you sleep on your stomach or side. And because oil breeds bacteria which then leads to breakouts, it only makes sense that you’d want to sleep on a clean pillowcase every night.

My professional suggestion is to get two nights out of the same pillowcase. You can achieve this by sleeping on one side of the pillow on one night and then flipping it over on the second night. After two nights, you’ll want to replace your pillowcase with a fresh, clean one. I’ve heard that there are pillowcases made with materials other than cotton that supposedly are more breathable so that your skin doesn’t absorb dirt and oil. If you’re really serious about your skin and want to prevent breakouts, you may want to look into those types. 

And of course cleansing your skin before you go to bed to remove the day’s dirt, bacteria, germs and makeup is essential to keep breakouts under control. A day’s worth of oil on the skin (and bacteria from touching your face all day) will cause more breakouts than just a dirty pillowcase, so please make sure you are diligent about washing your face daily.

Why Eye Cream Is Essential, No Matter Your Age!

Many things can cause the appearance of lines and wrinkles around the eyes. Squinting, constant movement, and even fluids that collect under the eyes can cause puffiness and dark circles.

Eye creams can help correct some of these issues, and become your new best friend in the meantime!

What’s In A Cream?

Eye creams are formulated specifically for the delicate skin surrounding your eyes. These creams tend to be thicker than your normal moisturizer, and contain more oil as well. Most eye creams contain active ingredients that target the problem areas you may have around your eyes.

Dry Skin

Got dry skin? Don’t worry, it’s fairly common. The skin surrounding the eye is some of the driest skin of your entire complexion, mostly because there are very few oil glands contained underneath the skin. Regularly applying makeup like concealer and foundation can dehydrate this delicate skin even further, especially if you haven’t moisturized first.

A hydrating eye cream is a great “starter” eye cream, because moisturizing this area will help to keep it smooth.

Dark Circles

Another common problem most of us are all too familiar with: The dreaded dark circles. Sometimes they’re genetic, sometimes they’re just a physical representation of our exhaustion. Either way, eye cream can help!

Some dark circles are caused by an overproduction of melanin, and some are just your blood vessels peeking through your skin. Losing bone and fat in your face as you age can make the hollows under your eyes seem more pronounced.

Puffy Eyes

Puffiness is another common issue that affects the skin under our eyes. This is most likely caused by retained fluid. Contributing factors can range from a salty diet, the way you sleep, and, again, genetics.

Delicately massaging the area can move the fluid, and pairing a light massage with the proper eye cream can help reduce overall puffiness.

Fine Lines And Wrinkles

If you’re primarily concerned about fine lines and wrinkles, avoiding UV exposure is your first defense. Your second defense, of course, is moisturizing and hydrating your skin with an eye cream that contains collagen-boosting ingredients like peptides or retinol.

Sun Damage And Skin Aging

Did you know that up to 90% of skin aging is caused by the sun? If that sounds like a scary statistic, that’s because it is. But it doesn’t have to be if you follow some simple guidelines to protect your skin, and that includes the fragile skin surrounding your eyes.

You can repair and potentially even reverse signs of skin aging by developing a thorough skincare routine – that includes a good facial cleanser, moisturizer, eye cream, and of course proper SPF protection.

According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, year-round, daily use of sunscreen in addition to your regular facial products can not only lower your risk of skin cancer by reducing your daily sun exposure, but sunscreen lets your skin heal and repair some existing damage.

To help you win the fight against dark under-eye circles, try using the SwissZell Instant Eye Wrinkle Defense Cream .  Gentle enough for the sensitive skin around the eyes, this rejuvenating treatment works with your natural sleep cycle to revive your eyes.  This luxurious cream is concentrated with peptides and wrinkle-relaxing milk protein, which diminish the appearance of fine lines and it also helps with problem areas like overall dryness, dark circles, and puffiness.

Final Thoughts

Adding eye cream into your daily regimen is something you’ll be glad you started when you did. It’s easy to forget about giving the area under your eyes a little extra care, especially if you’re already dedicated to moisturizing your face.

Starting early is something most young women don’t consider, but if you’re reading- trust me. The time will come where you’ll be thankful you did! Eye cream keeps your eyes looking bright and awake, while working in a myriad of ways that can only benefit the overall health of your skin.

Beyond the cosmetic perks, eye cream takes care of the targeted area surrounding your eyes in a way other products don’t.

Lighter, brighter, smoother eyes are just a dab of cream away!

What kind of alcohol to avoid in your skincare

With how much misleading information there is online in regards to alcohol in skincare, it’s easy to see why some people believe it really isn’t all that bad for skin. However, the research (and we mean a lot of research) makes it perfectly clear: alcohol as a main ingredient in any skincare product is a problem.

We know we can’t convince everyone but we hope the latest research, and, if you’ll pardon the pun, sobering facts about alcohol-based products, will help you put down the bottle if alcohol is lurking at the top of the ingredient list (we know, another pun, but we couldn’t help ourselves).

But first we need to clarify what kind of alcohol we want you to avoid.

Bad vs. Good Alcohol in Cosmetic Formulas

When we express concern about the presence of alcohol in skincare or makeup products, we’re referring to a drying type of alcohol that you’ll most often see listed on an ingredient label as SD alcoholdenatured alcohol, or, less often, isopropyl alcohol. These types of volatile alcohols give products a quick-drying finish, immediately degrease skin, and feel weightless on skin, so it’s easy to see their appeal, especially for those with oily skin.

But those short term benefits end up with negative long term consequences.

When you see these names of alcohol listed among the first six ingredients on an ingredient label, without question they will aggravate and be cruel to skin. No way around that, it’s simply bad for all skin types. Consequences include dryness, erosion of the surface of skin (that’s really bad for skin), and a strain on how skin replenishes, renews, and rejuvenates itself. Alcohol just weakens everything about skin.

There are other types of alcohols, known as fatty alcohols, which are absolutely non-irritating and can be exceptionally beneficial for skin. Examples you’ll see on ingredient labels include cetylstearyl, and cetearyl alcohol. All of these are good ingredients for dry skin, and in small amounts fine for any skin type as they give a pleasing texture and help keep ingredients stable in products. It’s important to discern these skin-friendly forms of alcohol from the problematic types of alcohol.

Likewise, you may have heard that alcohol is a good ingredient because it helps other ingredients like retinol and vitamin C absorb into skin more effectively. Although it’s true that it does enhance absorption of ingredients, the alcohol also destroys skin’s surface and the very substances that keep your skin healthy over the long term. There are certainly other, gentler ways to get good ingredients into skin, without damaging its outer layer, an issue that causes more problems than benefits.

How Alcohol Damages Skin and Makes Breakouts Worse

If your skin is oily, it can be tempting to use alcohol-based products because they provide an immediate matte finish, essentially de-greasing the “oil slick.” The irony of using alcohol-based products to control oily skin is that the damage from alcohol can lead to an increase in bumps and enlarged pores.

Alcohol can actually increase oiliness, so the immediate de-greasing effect is eventually counteracted, prompting your oily skin to look even more shiny.

The studies are clear: Alcohol harms your skin’s protective surface, depletes vital substances needed for healthy skin, and makes oily skin worse. To put it simply, it’s pro-aging. Given the hundreds of skin-friendly alternatives that are available, it’s essential to abstain from products front-loaded with the skin damaging forms of alcohol.

THREE DAILY HABITS TO A HEALTHIER LIFESTYLE

During this busy lifestyle, the simplest habits can have a profound and lasting impact on your life.  We all know that, it’s the small things that count.  So what are you doing daily to build a healthy life?

Today I wanted to share with you easy habits that you can start incorporating into your daily routine to improve your mind and body.

1. DRINK LEMON WATER

This is a new habit for me, but I have started to drink a hot cup of lemon water first thing in the morning everyday.  Not only will this help wake up your liver and digestive tract but lemons also help you naturally detox your system.  By drinking hot water with lemon, you will also be balancing your pH as lemons are an alkaline food.

Plus, most of us don’t drink enough water, and creating a daily lemon water habit is a great way to force down the good stuff.

 

2. EAT A HEALTHY BREAKFAST

We all know breakfast is the most important meal of the day – not only will it provide you with the energy and nutrients for the day and can help you maintain a healthy body weight… but it also sets the tone for the rest of the day.

When I start my day off right, I feel good and energized and am more likely to keep up my healthy habits for the remainder of my day.

Yummy fruit and granola in an acai bowl is a great way to go – it’s super filling too!

 

3. TAKE THE STAIRS

Instead of taking the escalator, choose the stairs.   I especially love taking the stairs after I have been sitting on an airplane for so long.  It feels so good to move my legs and I can’t help but feel a little pride when everyone else shuffles onto the escalators.

But in all seriousness, just remember that it’s the little things that we do daily that will help make a significant impact to help improve our lives.

Should You Use Eye Cream Both Morning And Night?

One of the many lovely responsibilities that comes with getting older is the adoption of an anti-aging routine. As you age, words like “retinol,” “hyaluronic acid,” and “Botox” suddenly become part of your vocabulary. Heavy-duty treatments aside, most dermatologists agree that your twenties is a great time to start an eye cream routine.

You might not be showing any signs of aging in your twenties or sometimes thirties, but it’s never too early to get a jump on preventing lines, says Erin Gilbert, M.D., celebrity skin expert. “The most important thing you can do is to adopt a good skin-care routine,” she says. “Using eye cream at an early age will not only get you on the road to preventing damage from occurring, but it will also begin protecting your skin from environmental aggressors.”

Eye cream is something that dermatologists all agree we should use to help moisturize sensitive eye skin and ward off fine lines. But, there’s not much out there by way of what to use or how to use them—and more importantly, when to use them.

Your eye cream really does need that time to settle into the skin. Applying it in the morning, then putting more products on top of it, makes it harder for it to absorb into the skin and can make those other products dissolve more easily. That’s why it’s best to use eye creams at night. Plus, your skin rejuvenates and repairs itself while you’re sleeping (like the rest of your body), so while your skin is working, it might as well have something to work with.

There’s also a specific way you should be applying your eye cream. You don’t want to apply just underneath your eyes where you may see puffiness or dark circles. Instead, you should apply eye cream all around the orbital bone to get at all the wrinkles and creases that crop up around your eyes.

Use your ring finger to dot your eye cream underneath and around your eye. It’s your weakest finger, perfect for applying products to the delicate eye area. With a patting motion, blend the cream in. Don’t smear or pull the cream around your eye, which could irritate the skin.

And now that you know how to apply it, we recommend this SwissZell Instant Eye Wrinkle Defense Cream ($125, Swisszell.com) In addition to de-puffing /anti-aging effect, this formula contains milk protein, for intense hydration and botanical extracts to fight signs of aging, and can help banish dark circles. Also, the super-gentle formula won’t cause any irritation if you get sloppy with your application.
