Benefits of Exfoliation

Benefits of Body Exfoliation

We often don’t think about it, but skin is our body’s largest organ. It wraps our whole body, protecting us from the harsh effects of the sun, wind, pollution and the many environmental contaminants. So it’s important we take good care of it. Over time, the skin on our face and body can take quite a beating from the elements, leaving it looking dull, dry and flaky. There’s an easy way to rejuvenate our skin — exfoliate it!

What’s Exfoliation? Exfoliation is a process that removes dead skin cells from the upper layer of the skin, revealing the healthy skin beneath. Our skin can shed 30,000 to 40,000 dead cells per minute naturally; but most of us (particularly those of us in our 30’s or older) need to manually exfoliate our skin to keep it looking radiant. As the weather gets colder and the humidity levels drop, exfoliation becomes even more important. Cells have a greater tendency to dry out during the winter months and accumulate on the skin’s surface leaving us with a dull, ashen complexion. That means the time is now!

Three Reasons to Exfoliate

  1. Super Smooth Skin: Over time, damage from the sun, hormonal changes, and aging slow down our ability to shed dead cells, as well as produce new skin cells. Bad news: this slowed process may lead to undesirable changes in skin’s texture and appearance. Eek. Good news: exfoliating regularly with our organic sugar scrubs to keep our skin feeling soft and smooth all winter long. Hurrah!

 

 

 

2. Breakout Buster: If you experience blackheads, whiteheads, or breakouts, exfoliating your skin can help keep pores clean and unclogged. Exfoliation helps remove dead skin cells, and prevent oils from your skin getting trapped beneath the surface, causing those dreaded blemishes. So worth it, don’t you think?

 

 

 

 

  1. Combat Aging: As we get older, our skin’s natural ability to shed dead skin cells slows down. These dead and dull skin cells on our skin’s surface, often make fine lines, wrinkles and dry skin stand out even more. Nobody wants that, right? Using a gentle facial polish once or twice per week, depending on your skin sensitivity, will help slough any dead skin cells from your face and promote healthy skin turnover. You’ll only be left with a beautifully radiant and youthful looking you!

 

 

 

  Did you know that skin is our body’s largest organ? It wraps our whole body, protecting us from the harsh effects of the sun, wind, pollution and the many environmental contaminants. So it’s important we take good care of it. Our body scrubs are made with organic cane sugar, cocoa butter, and coconut oil to gently exfoliate dry and lifeless skin to reveal a soft, healthy glow. Tougher spots that need serious attention? Try our new Serious Scrub made with volcanic pumice.

Water

Reasons Why You Should Drink More Water

Water by Abby Phon March 20, 2012 2:20 PM Edited by Verlie 07-13-2016

I’ve often been complimented on my clear, youthful skin. I thank my water intake! As with most things, the amount of water for each person is very individual, but if your pee isn’t mostly clear or you have any of the symptoms I mentioned above, you most likely aren’t getting enough water. Some suggest 8 (8oz) glasses a day while others suggest take your body weight (in pounds), divide it in half and drink that many ounces.

If you don’t care for the taste of nothing, add lemon, lime, fresh mint, a few berries, watermelon, or a few slices of cucumber or orange. Love is a glass of water!

A Cardiac Doctor has reported gravity holds water in the lower part of your body when you are upright (legs swell). When you lie down and the lower body (legs, etc.) is level with the kidneys, it is then that the kidneys remove the water because it is easier.

Message from a Cardiac Specialist!

Drinking water at a certain time maximizes its effectiveness on the body.
2 glasses after waking up – helps activate internal organs
1 glass 30 minutes before a meal – helps digestion
1 glass before taking a bath – helps lower blood pressure
1 glass before going to bed – avoids stroke or heart attack and also may prevent night time leg cramps. Leg muscles are seeking hydration when they cramp and wake you up with a Charlie Horse.

A Doctor wrote an interesting book on the benefits of drinking water. He recommends his patients drink water for at least 30 days and return in one month. His report was the majority of his patients no longer had any symptoms they previously came in with.

Don’t Medicate, Hydrate!

  1. Increase Energy & Relieves Fatigue

Your brain is mostly water, drinking it helps you think, focus and concentrate better and be more alert. As an added bonus, energy levels are also boosted!

  1. Promote Weight Loss

Removes by-products of fat, reduces eating intake (consumed prior to meals), reduces hunger (natural appetite suppressant!), raises your metabolism and has zero calories!

  1. Flush Out Toxins

Gets rid of waste through sweat and urination which reduces the risk of kidney stones and urinary tract infections.

  1. Improve Skin Complexion

Moisturizes your skin, keeps it fresh, soft, glowing and smooth. Gets rid of wrinkles. It’s the best anti-aging treatment around!

  1. Maintain Regularity

Aids in digestion as water is essential to digest your food and prevents constipation.

  1. Boost Immune System

A water guzzler is less likely to get sick. Drinking plenty of water helps fight against flu, cancer and other ailments.

  1. Natural Headache Remedy

Helps relieve and prevent headaches (migraines & back pains) which are commonly caused by dehydration.

  1. Prevent Cramps & Sprains

Proper hydration helps keep joints lubricated and muscles more elastic so joint pain is less likely.

  1. Puts You In A Good Mood

When the body is functioning at its best, you will feel great and be happy!

  1. Save Money!

Water is FREE! Even if you choose bottled/filtered water, it’s still cheaper than a high sugar and fat-filled latte or soda!

    2. THEY CARE:

  • Forest for the Future- 

    “We are planting trees in 19 developing countries throughout the world including Burundi, Uganda, Ghana and Tanzania. In Africa, agro-forestry provides families with the education and tools to create their own tree nurseries. The profits allow them to support their basic needs, while also benefiting the environment and fighting deforestation.” – From: www.eminenceorganics.com

  • Eminence Kids- 

    “We believe that providing organic, locally-sourced and nutrient-rich foods for seriously ill children to eat is an essential part of their treatment, healing and long-lasting health. The Éminence Kids initiative donates organic fruits, vegetables and foods to sick children around the world.”- From: eminenceorganics.com

    3. IT’S ORGANIC And NOT $$$$$$$$!

  • The Eminence Skin Care Line is Organic and because the ingredients are organically grown fruits and vegetables that we eat on a day to day basis the products are bio-recognizable therefore our body doesn’t need to process what we are supposed to be doing with the rich nutrients of the products, our skin already knows what to do!
  • All the products are cold pressed! NO HEAT ADDED! Heating the ingredients would break down the fruits and vegetables and we would not have the full amount nutrients in the product that they have to offer!
  • They DO NOT ADD WATER! Water= Bacteria growth! But not with Eminence products! You are paying for the rich, nourishing ingredients!

Fight Aging with Eminence

Fight Aging with Eminence

MARCH 22, 2016

Written By: Karen Young Chester

This is an essential time to embrace the changes in your skin and refocus your skin care routine for a complexion that continues to radiate health and beauty

Raise your hand if you’ve hit (or passed) your 50s and keep your hand up if you’re enjoying your decades with pride! This is an essential time to embrace the changes in your skin. However, like all life stages, the 50s bring new culprits that hold you back from experiencing your best skin. Here’s a quick guide to fight aging with Eminence:

DRY SKIN

Firm Skin Acai Moisturizer is one of the best products for skin care over 50, especially in combating dry skin.  Dry skin issues tend to happen as we age because the skin barrier becomes weaker and can’t repair as easily. This leads to further damage and, eventually, wrinkles. The answer, of course, is to moisturize and there is no better source of hydrating mature skin than the Firm Skin Acai Moisturizer. Rich in shea butter and skin-plumping hyaluronic acid, our Firm Skin Acai Moisturizer virtually erases signs of aging with its delivery of intense hydration.

SLACK SKIN
With age comes a decline of estrogen which affects collagen and elastin production. Without these proteins to give strength and elasticity, skin starts to slacken and hang more loosely. One solution is adding Bamboo Firming Fluid to your skin care routine. Formulated with strengthening agents like bamboo and coconut, this effective serum also includes Natural Retinol Alternative to smooth the appearance of wrinkles, and Swiss Green Apple Stem Cells which reduce the signs of aging. These key ingredients work together to visibly tighten the look of skin and ensure you look younger and fresher.

UNEVEN SKIN TONE
As sun exposure accumulates over the years, age spots tend to appear on mature skin on the cheeks, neck, hands, shoulders and arms. One easy remedy is the Bright Skin Targeted Treatment which uses licorice root extract, punarnava and turmeric to reduce the look of dark spots. By dotting this powerful treatment on individual spots, you can diminish the visible signs of age spots and reduce the look of specific problem areas. Overall, you’ll find your complexion looking brighter and more even in skin tone.

Eminence Organic Skin care has over 100 products to address your skin concerns. If you need more information about Eminence and what it can do for you call or stop in. We will answer whatever questions you may have. Or call to book a facial and experience a variety of the products available and spend time an hour with our skin care specialist. Facials done with Eminence is definitely a buffet for your skin. Aging with Eminence can be a beautiful experience.

Facial Care at The Sunrise Wellness Spa

 

  1. Why Should You Get a Facial?                                      ……Your Skin is Important and Smart!

  • Treat your skin! Facials are not only beautifying but they are also HEALING!! Your skin is the largest organ in your body and it needs just as much care and attention as the rest of your vital organs. Your skin works with your kidneys and liver to excrete toxins, chemicals, bacteria, anything that your body does not want you to have inside you OUT! Your skin will show you signs that there may be certain things that your body, especially your digestive system doesn’t like.
    • Examples: Lots of people that are prone to Acne might actually have an intolerance or are allergic to dairy and not know that their skin is trying to tell them something with the Acne breakouts!                                                                                                 If your diet consists of lots of sugars, simple or complex, this makes the yeast in your body rise and can lead to a body rash! High yeast creates a perfect environment for cancer cells. They love sugar so reduce you sugar intake!
  • STRESS!!!!! Facials will reduce your chances of STRESS by 100%!!! Stress is linked to 95% of illnesses! And you cannot pour from an empty glass. Take care of yourself FIRST!
  1. When Should You Get a Facial?                                                             ….. Whenever You Feel!

  • Your skin goes through a cycle every 27-30 days.You can get a facial once a month or if you have a good skin care regime at home you can extend that to once every 2 or 3 months!
  • You can get Facials with the changing of the Seasons! ~Summer—>Fall~ Starting to hydrate your skin and repairing is crucial. The Sun is the biggest contributor to Free Radical Damage causing aging. ~Fall—>Winter ~ It’s a great time to keep the skin hydrated and exfoliated. ~Winter—>Spring~ New and Refreshed is always a great way to start Spring and your skin needs it too! ~Spring—> Summer~ Protect your skin from the Summer Heat. Prevent any damage the Sun is doing while you are having FUN!
  1. Who Should Get a Facial?                                                                              …….EVERYONE!! 

  • Young and Old! Men and Women!!
  • Anyone who suffers from Acne, Blemishes, Hormonal Imbalances, Rosacea, Sensitive Skin, Eczema, Pigmentation, Uneven Skin Tones, Aging, Wrinkles, Dry or Dehydrated Skin, Red and Irritated….
  • Even if you have had or are prone to Skin Cancer. Eminence Biodynamic Line is right for you!

Take Time for Yourself

Take Time for Yourself – Look After Yourself

It takes time to be healthy. We have to make a decision and take the steps to develop a health conscious lifestyle and contemplate what we need to do to accomplish this.

If you are already healthy look at the everyday MAINTENANCE! That means regularly making those hale and hearty choices and building them up so they transform into habit.

EAT RIGHT! – Your body requires good, hearty foods to keep it nourished and balanced.

DRINK WATER! – You need to drink 8 glasses of water every day to keep your body hydrated and functioning properly

EXERSIZE DAILY! – 30 min workouts, walking to work, walking stairs, riding a bike. Anything and everything will help as long as you are physically active and some point during the day. Do more vigorous work out 3x a week for example Weightlifting, Yoga, Pilates or a more intense cardio. Get your heart rate up and get the sweat going. This releases toxins from your body and your blood gets flowing, which brings more oxygen throughout your body this equals a healthy and healing body.

YEARLY CHECK- UPS! – Very Important! Ask questions if you are not performing the way you have been. Be interested in your health.

SUPPLEMENTS! – Our body needs a certain amount of vitamins and minerals to maintain health and we do not acquire all the nutrients that are required through our diet.

SLEEP! – Your body needs to reboot itself every night. Get your 8 hours every night! Lack of sleep takes its toll on ones health over time.


MONITOR STRESS!
– 98% of illnesses and ailments are caused by stress. Small stress that is not addressed accumulates and manifests in minor or even major health issues over time. ”Do not bank your stress!” Talk to a trusted person, find a counselor you are comfortable with or who will challenge you to look into your life. Learn how to let go and move on.

JOURNAL! Take time daily to reflect what your day was like. What did you learn from it? What is a keeper? What and how could you have made it better? Reflect daily, weekly and monthly and then do a year end reflection so you can start the New Year with positive plans to accomplish more. Know where you are going.

MASSAGE THERAPY! Book a monthly massage for health maintenance. You would be surprised how much your body tightens up in one month and how good and refreshing it feels when you have a monthly massage. Put this in your budget and make use of whatever insurance you have. Find a therapist or two who give you the results you are looking for. A massage should be deep enough to remove the “tightness” in your muscles or you will take pain and stress back home with you. Be sure your therapist “listens to you”. Give him/her feedback so you will be happy when you leave.

Our facials also provide reduced stress and relieves the strain on the face that left untouched develops into wrinkles and ages you faster.

LAUGHTER! is a great stress reliever and releases an endorphin that heals and repairs. Watch funny movies, play with your children, grandchildren or family members and laugh with them. Read a book that gives you a laugh. All of these will change the direction of your wrinkles.

TAKE TIME FOR EVERYTHING – Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 There is a time for everything and a season for every activity under the Heavens

I will quote a friend Paul Martinelli – “In search for the most powerful thoughts to share I have found that many of these thoughts have been attributed to many different thought leaders, making it impossible to give “credit” to any one person. I have chosen to leave off the names with the awareness that there is truly only one source…. God.”
