WRINKLES

Search

Our mouth is a symbol of youth, attraction, and sensuality. It should be well-formed, and the lips clearly defined and plump.
Due to anatomical reasons, and aggressive environmental factors, this zone often ages more markedly than the rest of the face.

Wrinkles around the mouth can be caused by a variety of factors including, age, gender, genetics, sun exposure, smoking and even your beauty regime! The simple aging process is one of the main and unavoidable causes of wrinkles around the mouth. Also the nasolabial folds, commonly known as “smile lines” or “laugh lines“, are facial features. They are the two skin folds that run from each side of the nose to the corners of the mouth. They are defined by facial structures that support the buccal fat pad.

 

Lip aging and vertical ‘Barcode’ wrinkles

The mouth is a symbol of youth, attraction, and sensuality.  The lips clearly defined and plump.
Due to anatomical reasons, and aggressive environmental factors, this zone often ages more markedly than the rest of the face.

Why do we get those wrinkles?

– Drying and discoloration of the red of the lip.
– The loss of definition of the lip edge and the lips.
– The red of the lip thins/ loses volume.
– The labial commissures (side edges) sag and become hollow.
– The philtral crests flatten and the Cupid’s bow loses definition.
– Vertical wrinkles appear, notably above the upper lip, creating the ‘bar code’ or ‘sun folds’ effect).

We have found great results using the skin roller along with the I’m Fabulous Cosmetics Powerful Volumizing serum. I’m Fabulous Powerful Volumizing Serum & Skin Filler is an incredible serum that increases the appearance of facial volume and visibly plumps trouble zones – especially furrow lines, nasal labial creases and crow’s feet. Skin appears firmer, plump, ultra smooth, hydrated and vibrant!

Or Ablative laser (Erbium Fractionated), or (even better) Continuous laser: this treatment is the equivalent of a phenol peel. (See the details on the Erbium laser)

If one chooses the Fractional laser, four sessions will be needed. If the Continuous laser is chosen, one session will suffice. The result will last about ten years and rejuvenates without equal, but there is a downtime of about two days if by Fractional laser, and ten days for Continuous laser. It is painful and expensive but it works well.

Acne is caused by clogged pores and bacteria, and it’s sometimes challenging to manage.

Acne is a skin condition that creates stress and embarrassment for many people. It is most common in teenagers; however, you don’t have to be a teenager to suffer with this problem. You can be in your 30s, 40s or even older and still struggle with acne.

Acne can be caused by both, plus many other things. Certainly your hormone levels will determine the look of your skin, but what determines your hormone levels? Your diet and your overall state of health.

Herbal remedies tend to have fewer side effects than modern treatments. Some herbs have antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and antiseptic properties. These properties may help reduce acne-causing bacteria and inflammation, and heal blemishes.

Causes of acne can also include:

What makes herbal remedies effective?

To manage acne in some cases? It is the inherent botanical properties present in them that make them good acne-fighting agents. Some are antibacterial in nature, meaning they can inhibit the growth of acne-causing bacteria on your skin. The anti-inflammatory properties that some herbs have to boost your skin’s capacity to manage external damage and thus avoid sensitivity issues. Plus, herbs have fewer side effects when used the right way than potent ingredients like benzoyl peroxide or retinoids.

What herbs to take for acne?

  • Basil
  • Lavender
  • Cajeput
  • Chamomile
  • Rose oil
  • Blue yarrow
  • Hibiscus
  • Geranium
  • Rosemary
  • Witch Hazel

Both rosemary powder and oil are excellent topical treatments for acne. It’s antimicrobial and deeply healing, which will reduce redness, inflammation, and discoloration from all types of breakouts. The natural acids present in Hibiscus help to purify your skin by breaking down dead skin and increasing cell turnover, they can even help to control acne breakouts.

Chamomile can help to treat an active acne breakout, reducing bacteria and cleansing the skin, whilst also preventing future breakouts. Its antibacterial properties make it a particularly important natural ingredient in acne-fighting skincare products.

Factors that trigger acne

  • Puberty and hormone surges: during adolescence (8-13 years of age), psychological and especially physical changes are compounded by the increase in sexual hormones. Puberty is thus when the sebaceous glands produce most sebum, which bacteria feed off.
  • Hormonal changes in women. 2 to 7 days before menstruation, certain women are prone to acne surges. Others, under the influence of contraceptives (containing proestrogens that can increase acne like lynestrenol, norgestrel, norgestrienone, gestodene, norethisterone, levonorgestrel, desogestrel) are often prone to developing a type of more severe acne. Some women suffer from acne when they stop taking contraception pills.

Also, it may happen that menopause or pregnancy lead to acne for women.

  • Adrenal gland dysfunction or ovary disorders.
    In certain extremely rare cases, this may provoke acne in women.

When our skin has adequate hydration, the moisture barrier is stronger and helps defend against invading microbes that can lead to inflammation, impaired digestion, sluggish detoxification and ultimately acne lesions.

WHAT IS DERMAPLANING?

Dermaplaning is a physical exfoliation method that requires the use of a sterile surgical tool

to gently shave the top layer of the skin, the stratum corneum (The stratum corneum is the outer layer of the skin (epidermis). It serves as the primary barrier between the body and the environment), dead skin layer, and vellus hair, aka peach fuzz.

DERMAPLANING INSTRUCTION:

The 7 Steps to Remove Peach Fuzz at Home

The complete low down on how to perform dermaplaning at home effectively and safely. 

Step 1. Wash your face

Get your skin ready by cleansing with a gentle organic cleanser to ensure all makeup and oils are removed from the skin.  

Step 2. Rinse and dry your face.

Step 3. Apply coconut oil

Apply a thin layer of coconut oil on your face.  

Some people prefer not to apply anything.  You decide for yourself.

Step 4. Downward strokes

Wet the dermaplaning tool in warm water and then start with downward strokes – start shaving with the hair growth. It’s important to have the correct angle for best results. 

Use short strokes at a 45-degree angle.

Make sure you do not forget to use a mirror.

Step 4. Rinse and repeat

Rinse the dermablade frequently to dislodge the dead skin cells and the fine hairs on it.

Thoroughly make your way through the different sections of your face targeting:

  • forehead
  • temples
  • chin
  • eyebrow area
  • sideburns
  • upper lips
  • cheeks

Step 5. Repeat again the same above process

Once done, go over your face again, this time against the hair growth. This provides a greater exfoliation effect on the skin.

Remember to continue to stroke the blade against the skin at a 45-degree angle. 

Step 6.  Splash and cool off

Finish off by splashing your face with cool water and pat dry.

Step 7. Apply your favorite organic serum

The skin is most receptive to skincare and topical immediately after dermablading. 

It’s more permeable than normal because of the pathways the procedure has created. The exfoliated skin paves an easier path for the nutrients to absorb into the skin for maximum benefits.

During the first 1-5 minutes after a treatment, is your opportunity to pass nutrients down to your cells in the lower skin layers. At this point, apply your favorite serum or organic moisturizer to your face.   

Step 8: Apply skincare products

Some prefer to dermaplane at night before bed, so typically finishing up by applying a nightly routine which looks something like this:

DERMAPLANING BEFORE AND AFTER TIPS

HOW OFTEN SHOULD I DERMAPLANE MY SKIN?

I recommend once a month (or every 3-4 weeks). Dermaplaning, too often can irritate the skin. 

Dermaplaning can keep your skin looking bouncy, smooth, clear and supple.

  • When you are dermaplaining, make sure to use your thumb and index finger to pull about an inch or two of you skin taut. This will keep your skin tight, and prevent accidental cuts
  • For sterile purposes, it is recommended to throw away the tool after 3 months of use and to not share it with others.
  • After treatment, avoid excessive physical activity that makes you sweat
  • Avoid direct contact with sun for 48-72 hours on the applied area.
  • Avoid applying cosmetics immediately after use
  • Wear sunscreen daily. Find one with at least a 30+ protection and re-apply as necessary throughout the day and/or before prolonged UVA/UVB exposure. Even on rainy day!
  • Also make sure to use an organic gentle daily cleanser

Do you want your skin to appear bouncy, poreless, luminous, clear and translucent?

Well, your skin really needs to be its healthiest in every way. The term “Glass skin” is a phrase that originated on the Korean beauty scene and quickly went viral on social media and became super popular in social media.

How can I get glass skin naturally?

Practicing healthy and balanced self-care is very important. You’ll want to make sure you’re drinking plenty of water, minimizing your use of caffeine and alcohol, following a healthy diet that works for your body, and getting a good amount of sleep. Juicing green each day makes also a big difference as you will get lots of vitamins and minerals.

Eat more healthy fat

Your skin barrier loves healthy fats because they help it stay hydrated, moisturized, and supple, to promote clear, healthy skin. Try upping your intake of the following healthy fats in your diet:

  • Cold-water fish. When it comes to skin health, fatty fish like tuna, mackerel, sardines, and salmon. Excellent for their high levels of omega-3 fatty acids, which reduce inflammation, and antioxidant vitamin E, which may protect your skin from damaging free radicals.
  • Avocado. These green fruits that are loaded with health benefits like oleic acid, a healthy fat that may reduce inflammation.

Load up on fruits and veggies

Blueberries are a great option — they may be small, but they’re high in anthocyanins, a compound that includes antioxidants and boosts your body’s ability to battle free radicals.

Other skin-friendly produce includes:

  • leafy greens, like spinach and kale
  • nuts
  • sweet potatoes
  • grapes
  • peppers

Hydrate

Water isn’t only hydrating, but it may reduce your chances of acne by staving off dry skin. The skin is “hydrated” from the inside out by pulling fluid from the capillary blood flow in the skin. The inexpensive secret to better skin is water. Your skin is the largest organ in your body made up with cells that require water. Water helps to flush out toxins and bacteria from your body and reduces the risks of skin problems. So, when your body is deprived of water, your bodily functions and your skin is affected causing breakouts, wrinkles, puffiness and dullness.

When your skin does not receive sufficient water, your skin loses its elasticity and becomes tight and dry. The thin layer of skin under your eyes may also darken if your skin has lost its elasticity. By drinking more water, you maintain the thickness and density and prevent the loss of moisture in your skin. By drinking more water, your skin becomes more hydrated and the skin barrier function is strengthened. Whilst drinking water will not prevent you from developing such skin conditions, it will lessen your chances of your skin feeling uncomfortable, flaky and itchy.

Your step-by-step glass skin routine

Double cleanse

Cindy Weng, a Korean dermatologist, recommends first washing your face with a gentle oil cleanser that won’t clog pores or strip skin of its natural oils.

Then, she suggests following it with a gentle cleanser that foams. Try the I’m Fabulous Grapefruit Cleansing oil organic for the first step, and the I’m Fabulous Luxe Cleanser organic  for the second.


Exfoliate

Exfoliation helps to remove excess dead skin cells and removes blackheads on the skin. You can use a weekly gentle exfoliating cleanser or a light skin peels at home like the Bio Gorgeous Peel, the Gorgeous peel or the Wild Berry Exfoliator.

Use a toner

Toners help reset the pH of the skin and allow the next steps in your routine to absorb better into the skin,” says Dr Lois, M.D. And recommend those Plant-based organic and vegan skin toners.

Wear sunscreen daily

Wearing sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or above can prevent skin cancer. Keeping your skin shielded from harmful UV rays also guards against photo-aging, which is the process of skin aging.

Make sure to apply a product with sunscreen every morning, even on days when it’s raining or the sky is overcast.

Yes, Microneedling can be used under your eyes to promote collagen production, which can lead to firmer, more youthful-looking skin. This procedure is typically used to treat dark circles skin under your eyes.

Microneedling under your eyes will cost $100 to $500 per session, and you’ll need to pay for multiple sessions. Or you can do it at home with your own microneedling pen.

Because, professional microneedling is considered much more effective than at-home microneedling devices. I suggest you invest in a professional microneedling machine like the I’m Fabulous Cosmetics Glow Derma Pen.

Microneedling uses very small needles to create a group of tiny punctures in your skin. These are called “microwounds,” and they don’t cause lasting damage to your skin. These microwounds close quickly, but before they do, your body triggers a repair response that’s directed to the area. This repair response includes signaling your skin to create brand-new cells and capillaries.

You can do microneedling under the eye using the NANO needles which are very safe and very short needles or the regular needles #42 which are longer needles, but the length of the needles can be easily adjusted.

Through the natural wound-healing process of the skin, these micro-injuries are repaired as new, healthier skin cells grow, and new collagen and elastin are produced. This helps to plump and firm skin, diminish signs of aging, and minimize the overall appearance of dark circles. To treat the delicate and sensitive skin around the under eyes.

Does microneedling get rid of dark circles, under-eye wrinkles, or eye bags?

Microneedling can be an effective treatment option for fine lines, under-eye bags, puffiness, hyperpigmentation, acne scars, and even stretch marks. The versatility of a microneedling treatment is what makes it beneficial for patients with varying skin tones and skin types. By adjusting the depth of penetration of the tiny needles on the dermapen, the delicate under eye skin can be treated with the microneedle pen to achieve a rejuvenated appearance.

Skincare with Microneedling

You can maximize the benefits of your favorite skincare products by applying them after a microneedling treatment. Stay away from ingredients like retinol and Retin-A, as these ingredients will be too harsh for skin after treatment. However, after a microneedling treatment hydrating ingredients like a plant-based hyaluronic acid are able to better penetrate the skin through newly created micro-channels, leaving your skin moisturized and glowing. Hyaluronic acid is a natural component of skin structure and helps to strengthen the natural protective barrier of skin as well as promote moisture retention. Hyaluronic acid keeps skin healthy and looking and feeling hydrated, youthful, and beautiful. 

Topical serums, such as I’m Fabulous Cosmetics ’s Vitamin C serum and volumizing serum containing hyaluronic acid (Volumizing serum and skin filler ) can be a very powerful way to boost the effects of your microneedling treatment.

I’m Fabulous Cosmetics products are organic and plant-based so also a great way to treat your skin naturally without harsh toxic preservatives. The serums works to provide the ultimate in hydration to the skin at every level, diminishing the appearance of dark circles, fine lines, and wrinkles by enhancing the skin’s moisture content. This revitalizing hyaluronic acid serum leaves the skin looking and feeling softer, smoother, and radiantly hydrated.

Is your skin lacking radiance or an inability to reflect light well.

Dull skin is often caused by dryness and one of the most popular reasons for dry skin, is not exfoliating enough or not exfoliating properly.

The air and atmosphere that you are in every day not only has an effect on your lungs as you breathe it in, but it also attaches itself to your skin. Polluted air contains thousands of small particles such as dirt, which contribute to your skin having a dull and an uneven texture. These particles also diffuse light, making your skin appear more dismal and cause you to have more wrinkles!

So make sure you wash your skin every single night. The dirt your skin collects throughout the day will damage your skin at night if it’s not removed.

Stress gets expressed in many forms in our body and getting problem skin is one of them. This is due to the fact that when you’re stressed, your fight-or-flight response kicks in and blood flows to your vital organs, where the skin isn’t one of them. This leads to the appearance of a more dull and tired complexion.

If you have stress you should try to reduce your stress levels and get more sleep but for the instances when you just want to make your skin seem a little more awake, try giving yourself a quick facial massage. It will stimulate blood flow, giving you a more glowing, plump and awake complexion.

Dr. Marcell, MD., agree that using a gentle TCA cleanser like the I’m Fabulous Cosmetics TCA cleanser, is a noninvasive approach that uses trichloroacetic acid and plants to exfoliate dead cells from the skin, without downtimes and that it is indeed a very conservative approach to making your skin healthy and glowing.

Dull skin may appear dry, patchy, ashy, or lackluster. Additionally, dullness is often accompanied by an uneven skin texture TCA (trichloracetic acid) is an analog of acetic acid (like vinegar) and is an active ingredient in many popular chemical peels. When applied to the skin, TCA peels exfoliate the top layer of skin over the course of several days, exposing a smoother and more attractive new layer of skin underneath.

What are the benefits of using TCA?

What is TCA?

TCA (Trichloroacetic Acid) is a modified synthetic chemical similar to vinegar.

Microneedling treatment can be safely done about once a month or every 4 to 6 weeks. This is the frequency that works best for the majority of patients of all skin types, but some patients find that microneedling treatment more or less frequently than this range works best for their skin and their aesthetic goals. 

Treatments to Maintain Results

After your first round of treatment is completed, and you have obtained your desired results, all subsequent appointments will be used to maintain these results. 

The results of this treatment build gradually, you will be able to have more time between your regular maintenance appointments than your first round. Many patients opt to have regular treatments every 6 to 8 weeks for this purpose.

What is Microneedling?

Microneedling creates tiny little holes in the face to stimulate collagen growth. Collagen not only gives the skin its youthful appearance, but also improves elasticity. As we age and with sun damage, collagen is depleted from the skin. This causes our skin to lose its youthful look and feel. With microneedling, we can help increase the production of collagen by making tiny holes in your skin which causes your body to react by creating new collagen – so with this treatment you “trick” the body into thinking there is damage. Electric needling pens are much better than skin rollers and the results are more drastic with the electric pen.

Benefits Of Microneedling:

What Are Results Like?

The results of this procedure are reliable and predictable. Regardless of your age or skin condition, you can be certain that you will experience the desired results. 

How does one maintain youthful glow?

You can maintain a youthful glow by getting regular facials. Microneedling has the added benefit of creating thousands of microscopic channels in your skin, this allows us to get deep into collagen layers to stimulate collagen growth.

What is the length of procedure?

Duration depends on the treatment desired. For example, microneedling may take 15 minutes for face and 30-45 minutes for body. Often times we combine microneedling with other skin rejuvenation procedures such as LED light therapy or radio frequency to give you an optimum youthful glow.

Microneedling for collagen induction (CIT) has so many amazing benefits. Yes, Controlled skin injuries produced by microneedling send the skin into a repair mode that triggers the body to produce new collagen as well as elastin, providing our skin with plumpness and resilience. Importantly, it isn’t just the microneedling that brings all this goodness.

What is collagen induction?

Collagen induction therapy is a simple cosmetic procedure in which a group of sterile microneedles puncture the skin of the face. The goal is to promote the growth of collagen and new skin tissue.

After making thousands of little micro-injuries on your skin – now it’s time for pampering and a careful protocol for internal and external supplementation and healing. Because how we treat our skin in the days following a treatment will dramatically affect the level of rejuvenation we experience.

5mm + for collagen (your monthly needling session) and you’re wondering what you should be taking, what you should be applying to your skin, and what other devices you can use during the next month.

Next step: Red light therapy! LED is the perfect pairing with microneedling. Red LED can reduce erythema (redness) and inflammation. Red LED (633nm) enhances keratinocyte proliferation and near infra-red LED (700-830) amplifies collagen and elastin formation (for stronger, bouncier skin). 

After LED you can add hyaluronic acid. Then, take it easy – no makeup, perfumes or other products close to your face, please! You’ll also want to avoid the gym, sauna and direct sunlight exposure for at least the first 24 hours after microneedling treatment.

Days 1-5 (feeling a little pink and dehydrated?)

You’ll wake up the next day and rinse your skin (it’s ok to wash if you feel you need to, just use a very gentle facial cleanser) and then apply your Hyaluronic Serum or favorite I’m Fabulous Cosmetics serum.

Next, I like to apply vitamin C and then a facial serum to soothe and nourish the skin.  At this point, most people benefit from a moisturizer with ingredients like collagen, peptides, and hemp. You’ll then finish with a healthy amount of sunscreen -and you’re done for the morning. This will be repeated each morning the first 5 days.  

I’m Fabulous Cosmetics signature Hyaluronic Acid (HA) formulation, with a superior delivery system that contains three molecular sizes of HA, the smallest of which can penetrate to the deeper layers of the skin and Helichrysum italicum (Immortelle Flower). Hyaluronic acid has the ability to hold up 1000 times its weight in water making it one of the most effective moisturizers discovered by medical science.

IMMORTELLE FLOWERS BENEFITS TO THE SKIN:

  • Smoothing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Immortelle essential oil evens out skin tone.
  • It restores sun-damaged skin and helps block UV rays.
  • Diminishing under-eye bags.
  • It also clears up scars and spots

To summarize skincare in the morning in the first five days:

  1. Cleanse
  2. Vitamin C Serum
  3. Your favorite serum
  4. Moisturizer like the Collagen Repair Cream
  5. SPF

Skincare in the evening during the first 5 days my protocol (you can adjust to your preferences) goes like this:

  1. Cleanse
  2. Vitamin C Serum 
  3. Hyaluronic Acid Serum
  4. Serum of your choice
  5. Moisturizer like the Retinol Cream

The first 5 days are about feeding the skin and replenishing it, helping it to heal. You very well may have flaking and dryness along the way – that’s perfectly normal. Toward day five you may use a gentle enzyme peel to clear flakes. Gentle is the keyword here. For best results is it best to not mix I’m Fabulous Cosmetics organic plants-based products with other non-organic brands.

Are you in the habit of using electronics in bed? Despite the evidence showing that blue light is bad for sleep, many of us have trouble giving up our bedtime entertainment. While it takes some adjustment, swapping late-night scrolling for a soothing bedtime read is worth the effort. When you sleep better, you do more than feel better — you also look better! Getting enough sleep leads to a brighter complexion, clearer skin, and fewer wrinkles, among other beauty benefits.

Before you completely banish your phone from the bedroom in the name of beauty, let I’m Fabulous Cosmetics show you the ways your smartphone could improve your sleep. From storytime apps to sleep trackers, these four apps are great for your beauty rest.

4 Smartphone Apps to Help You Sleep

Headspace

When racing thoughts keep you up, you need something relaxing to focus on. That’s where Headspace’s app comes in. With guided bedtime meditations, soothing storytelling, and sleep music, Headspace can keep your mind off of your to-do list while drifting off to sleep.

Relax Melodies

The Relax Melodies app is similar to Headspace, with meditations, stories, and sounds designed for sleep. However, Relax Melodies has even more features, including the ability to mix your own soundscapes and timers so you can play soothing sounds for a few minutes or keep them going all night for white noise.

SnoreLab

Do you spend a solid eight hours in bed but still wake up feeling groggy? It could be a sign of a sleep disorder called sleep apnea, and snoring is one of the biggest signs. The SnoreLab app records and analyzes your nightly snoring to calculate your Snore Score. While your Snore Score alone can’t tell you if you have sleep apnea, it helps you identify patterns and listen for telltale signs of sleep apnea like gasping or choking sounds.

If you snore only during certain times of the year, it may be helpful to reduce your exposure to pollen, especially while you sleep. Shower before bed, change sheets frequently, add an air purifier, and give your soft furnishings a deep cleaning. Just search Angi for upholstery cleaning specials and you’ll be one step closer to a good night’s rest.

Sleep Time

Sleep apnea isn’t the only disorder that can disrupt your sleep. Sleep movement disorders like restless legs syndrome are also common culprits behind poor sleep. The Sleep Time app lets you track your nighttime movements by placing your phone in bed to generate a nightly sleep analysis. The app also uses movement to determine the lightest phases of your sleep and wake you up at a time you’re most likely to feel well-rested.

These apps are great tools for a better night’s rest, but before downloading anything, make sure your phone can handle running multiple sleep apps through the night. If yours lacks performance for the apps you want, consider an upgrade so you’re not worried about your phone crashing halfway through a bedtime meditation. A set of Bluetooth speakers will allow you to play restful music as you drift off to sleep.

Still Can’t Sleep? Try This

While a lot of sleep problems come down to bad habits, sometimes the solution is far more simple: a new bed. Most people don’t give much thought to their mattress, but mattresses do wear out. If yours isn’t as comfy as it used to be, it’s probably time to replace it. Consider how your body has changed since your last mattress purchase; if you’ve gained weight, developed chronic pain, or changed your sleep style, you may need a mattress that’s softer or firmer than your old one. If you’re not sure, look for a mattress manufacturer that offers three different firmness profiles: plush soft, luxury firm, and firm. That way, you can choose what feels best for your body.

Your phone is a portal to endless beauty tips and makeup tutorials, but at the end of the day, it could be what’s keeping you from your beauty rest. Instead of making your phone an enemy, turn it into an ally. With a comfortable bed, a dark room, and soothing bedtime sounds, you’ll have no trouble getting the rest you need to wake up feeling youthful and energized.
