Titanium dioxide is a naturally occurring mineral that is mined from the earth then further processed and purified for use in consumer products. Also known as titanium (IV) oxide or titania, it is the naturally occurring compound comprised of the metal titanium and oxygen. Titanium dioxide is safely used in many products from paint and food to drugs and cosmetics.

TiO2 is used in a variety of cosmetics including sunscreens, pressed powder, loose powders, eyeshadows and blush as UV filter or whitening agent.

When used as a Whitening agent, TiO2 helps to increase the opaqueness and reduce the transparency of product formulas; when used as UV filter, TiO2 is an important active ingredient to absorb, reflect or scatter light (including ultraviolet radiation from the sun).

TiO2 is processed into many different sizes, which have different properties. Micronized TiO2 (also called “nano”) was introduced in the early 1990s and used in many OTC sunscreen products. Use of this ultrafine material enables the sunscreens to be applied as a clear film that consumers prefer over the antiquated, white opaque lotions.

Although it is still in the proposal stage, this potential classification will have a huge impact on worldwide cosmetic ingredient regulation.

NUFACE

Nuface Trinity a multi-solution facial toning device is FDA-cleared, clinically-tested, and consumer reviewed for improved facial contour, skin tone, and wrinkle reduction to give you a more radiant, younger-looking appearance.

  • Natural, non-invasive facial-lift using microcurrent technology
  • Visible results that are long-lasting with continued use
  • Easy to use in as little as 5-minutes a day and travel ready
  • Designed with interchangeable anti-aging treatment attachments
  • Professional quality results in the comfort of your home

I have been using the Nuface for two years now once a week and just tried the REFA yesterday.

I adore the NUFACE because I can actually feel the muscle move and I get some redness and plumping on my skin. I do not use the NUFACE connecting gel but instead some of my favorites I’m Fabulous Cosmetics anti-aging serums ( Bio Identical Hyaluracid serum and the High Tech Copper Peptide serum.)

The REFA is stunning and so shiny but does not do much for me. I feel like it is rubbing on my bones and not really moving my skin. I can actually do better massage to my skin and my hands, by massaging and pinching the skin to promote drainage, blood flow and help bring oxygen to the area.

That boost in circulation is what gets you glowing, but other benefits include improved skin tone and muscle contouring. So I get more by using my own hands than with the REFA.

I would not recommend using the NUFACE is the area where you get botox. I love using it on the lower jaw, lower cheeks, and neck. I also feel like it helps the serum penetrate deeper.

Also here a great video on Japanese facial massage. It is not in English but you just need to look at the technique and the before and after pictures that are amazing!

DID YOU KNOW:

There are many skin peels out there…. Jessner, Lactic, Glycolic, Phenol, TCA, etc…

The TCA peel is a peel that penetrates deeper into the skin without irritation….Doing a perfect TCA PEEL requires that you use the LEAST STRENGTH needed to abrade the stratum corneum layer. This is a percentage over 10% and under 20. TCA over this strength will cause the skin to frost or turn white (similar to a light broiler burn).

The Gorgeous Peel from I’m Fabulous ® has a proven theory of abrading just enough of the stratum corneum to cause the skin to send valuable protein to the surface. When you frost the skin too deeply, your body goes into wound repair mode where it creates antibodies, scar tissue, melanin and other secretions, which may easily cause the skin to age faster!

TCA-GORGEOUS-PEEL-5

Melanin is produced when you tan, and when you are wounded and when you have surges of progesterone (hormonal hyperpigmentation). When you go too deep into the epidermis or subcutis layers by using high doses of a caustic chemical, your skin produces healing protein to bandage the chemical peel. This is not the correct way to do a peel.

Due to the intense mix of active ingredients, it will cause a very fast drying and drawing of the topmost .01 micron. In most cases, this will peel almost instantly or within 24 hours.

The Gorgeous peel tends to be a rather rapid exfoliation and one that you can expedite by compressing a warm cloth or even using your ring finger to roll the dead skin off.

Questions:

Will the treatment help to remove my pregnancy masque?

Yes. However, you will probably need to do more than one Peel treatment.

Will the treatment help to remove my freckles?

The treatment will not remove freckles that you were born with. However, it will help in the removal of freckles caused by sun damage, pregnancy mask, and aging.

I have severe acne; will the treatment help my condition?

The treatment will help to treat the problems left once the acne has been properly treated under the guidance of your doctor or dermatologist. Such problems can range from, the marks left by acne, uneven skin tone, rough thickened skin, and hyper-pigmentation.

My acne scarring (pitted) is extremely slight; will the treatment help remove it?

The Gorgeous Peel treatment will only penetrate as deep as the epidermal (outer) layers of skin. It will never penetrate into the dermis (bottom) layer of skin. Therefore, if you are treating pitted acne scarring (as light as they may be) then the treatment will not be able to remove these marks totally as they generally tend to be deep in the bottom (dermis) layer of skin. It will however, help to make these scars less noticeable than they were before you did the treatment.

Will the Gorgeous Peel remove my pitted acne scarring?

If you are treating acne scarring in the form of darkened or reddened marks then the Gorgeous Peel treatment will help to remove these marks. The Gorgeous Peel treatment will only penetrate as deep as the epidermal (outer) layers of skin. It will never penetrate into the dermis (bottom) layer of skin. Therefore, if you are treating pitted acne scarring then the treatment will not be able to remove these marks totally as they generally tend to be deep in the bottom (dermis) layer of skin. It will, however, help to make these scars less noticeable than they were before you did the treatment. An ideal candidate for one of our treatments is someone who is looking for improvement rather than perfection.

Can I apply Makeup after the Gorgeous Peel?

Yes but preferably mineral makeup because you do not want to apply anything cream or moisturizing.

Is the Gorgeous peel good for all skin types?

Yes, dark skin and all skin types

I’m Fabulous skin care theory is to PEEL more than you HEAL!!!

The second benefit of facial resurfacing that is done CORRECTLY is the SURGE of collagen and elastin that occurs post peel.

The trick behind an awesome peel is to FOOL the skin into secreting a TON of natural collagen and elastin to the affected area. BUT! If you DO burn your skin, using high doses (some are very unrepeatable), then ALL of that natural protein becomes WOUND REPAIR and it will have NO benefit to your new skin growth, for it is used up on trying to HEAL the skin that is in trauma.

The concept of resurfacing is LOST on this type of peel because the skin spends MORE TIME HEALING than it does peeling.

A peel done correctly is a proven theory of abrading just enough of the stratum corneum to cause the skin to send valuable protein to the surface. When you FROST the skin too deeply, your body goes into WOUND REPAIR MODE where it creates antibodies, scar tissue, melanin and other secretions, which MAY easily cause the skin to age faster! Melanin is produced when you tan, and when you are wounded and when you have surges of progesterone (hormonal hyperpigmentation). When you go too deep into the epidermis or subcutis layers by using high doses of a caustic chemical, your skin produces HEALING PROTEIN to bandage the chemical peel.

The concept of resurfacing the epidermis (face) has been around for many years. 20 years ago, plastic surgeons were doing WIRE DERMABRASION techniques that removed the stratum corneum and about 10-20 full micron of skin. The healing process was devastating for most patients. They suffered from hyper (dark) and hypo (white) pigmentation and an uneven skin surface.

In the last 20 years and have perfected the technique of LASER RESURFACING.

However it is STILL both expensive and has a 4-month healing process.

Most people cannot GO 4 months without working or being seen in public.

The concept of resurfacing the skin using A MILDER technique of facial resurfacing is one that is beneficial in TWO very specific ways. By abrading (killing and removing) small amounts of skin, about .01-.03 micron per treatment, you will expose SMOOTHER skin after just ONE result.

I’m Fabulous has developed the “Gorgeous peel” it is like a slow laser resurfacing treatment, one that even with my microdermabrader, I could NEVER MATCH because, at one sitting, I’m taking off .01 micron, whereas the skincare products are a slow transdermal delivery removing a safe .03 micron per 4-6 days. Since it is ongoing, the new skin cell turnover is so RAPID; the anti-aging benefits are HUGE. This rapid turnover triggers a wound repair reaction, so the skin floods the epidermis/stratum with COLLAGEN / ELASTIN-DNA REPAIR. And since there is no wound, or fire to extinguish, these proteins simply begin repairing and rebuilding cells on their own. It’s TRULY rapid age reversal.

Is there any discomfort?  The application will sting until it has acclimated to the skins natural PH level. Although salt can shut this product down it is not recommended that you stop the peel before it has finished. I recommend having a cold wet cloth at the ready to hold and press onto the skin for comfort sake.

Is there any ‘down time’ that I should be prepared for? No downtime, you can apply mineral makeup only, if needed after the peel. You will feel your skintight for about 48 hours after the peel then your skin will peel off gently. You can redo the peel anytime, and you can even do 2 or 3 layers, meaning you apply it 2 or 3 times on your face then start looking at the clock to start the 3 minutes, then rinse off.

Seriously, how will I look? You will look fine! No worse than managing a peeling suntan!

Can I do a little test spot first? Yes! I insist that you do! In fact personally, I never do a full-face peel. I do my lower nasal folds and chin on one treatment and then forehead on a second week. There is no special formula of application that you have to follow.

How many peels will I get in this 1 oz. bottle? You will be able to do more than 100 applications with just 1 oz.

I’m Fabulous Cosmetics BIO-IDENTICAL PROTEIN SERUM or I’m Fabulous RETINOL 2.5% CREAM is highly recommended for post peel start applying on day #3 post peel.

The key to flawless skin is RAPID EXFOLIATION followed by INFUSION OF PROTEIN (hyaluronic protein).

Collagen is the defensive fiber that serves as the connective tissue in the body. Made of protein, collagen contains substantial measure of two amino acids, as indicated by the George Mateljan Foundation. Hydroxyproline and hydroxylysine furnish collagen with the adaptability and quality to hold tissue and organs together, extend with development and repair harmed cells.

With age, daylight and free radical presentation, collagen in the skin loses its versatility and delivers new cells at a much lower rate. While creams and collagen infusions briefly can reestablish lost collagen, other, more normal methods might be ideal.

Step 1

Eat sustenances high in vitamin C to furnish your body with the apparatuses to transform proline and lysine into collagen. The best wellsprings of vitamin C incorporate most foods grown from the ground, as indicated by the National Institutes of Health. Especially compelling sources incorporate broccoli, strawberries, tomatoes, blueberries and verdant greens.

Step 2

Incorporate incline meats, egg whites and wheat germ in your eating regimen to supply your body with adequate measures of lysine and proline expected to reestablish collagen. As indicated by the George Mateljan Foundation, peanuts are another successful wellspring of the amino acids that make up the structure of collagen.

Step 3

Apply creams on your skin that contain tea separates. As per the Mayo Clinic, oolong, green and dark teas contain mitigating fixings and cancer prevention agents that can reestablish collagen and incidentally lessen the presence of wrinkles.

Step 4

Add garlic to your eating regimen to bolster collagen generation. As indicated by the George Mateljan Foundation, garlic contains taurine and lipoid corrosive, amino acids that contain sulphur, known to back off the harm done to collagen.

Step 5

Utilize nourishments high in phytonutrients to finish your collagen consume fewer calories. Anthocyanidins found in natural products, for example, blueberries, fruits, raspberries, and blackberries, has been found to fortify the collagen strands to keep up firmer and more beneficial skin tone.

 

 

 

 

What You Can Eat and What You Can’t

Go Paleo, and you’ll eat a lot of fresh lean meats and fish, fruits, and vegetables, and healthier fats.

You can also eat:

  • Eggs
  • Nuts and seeds
  • Healthier oils, including olive oil and coconut oil

You can’t eat any processed foods on this diet. And since our ancestors were hunter-gatherers, not farmers, say goodbye to wheat and dairy, along with other grains and legumes (such as peanuts and beans). Other foods to avoid:

  • Dairy
  • Refined sugar
  • Potatoes
  • Salt
  • Refined vegetable oils, such as canola

Vegetarian or veganThis diet emphasizes meat and fish, and Cordain says it’s impossible to follow a Paleo Diet without eating meat, seafood, or eggs. Excellent vegetarian sources of protein, such as beans and other legumes, are not allowed.

Low-salt diet: The diet doesn’t allow salt, so it may help you cut down on sodium. If you do eat any foods that come from a can or a box, you would still need to check the sodium on food labels.

The Paleo Diet also almost completely eradicates sugar. Unless you’re getting your sugar from a fruit, forget it.  Sugar causes an energy spike and crash in your system, turns to fat unless it’s used immediately, and wreaks all kind of havoc on our bodies.

So, no grains, no sugar, no processed foods. Many studies have shown that an incredible number of diseases and lifestyle issues can be reversed with these three simple changes. Take a look at this time magazine article on cancer patients who switched to a zero-sugar diet and saw positive results.

So, if we’re not eating 300+ grams of carbs every day, where are we supposed to get our energy from?

fullsizeoutput_2f3

Our bodies are designed to operate on a lower amount of carbohydrates than what we’re used to eating, so less carbs isn’t an issue.  When there is an absence of carbs (which is how we’re USED to operating), our body will take stored fat and burn THAT for energy in a process called ketogenesis.

What I’m trying to tell you is that our bodies are pretty effin’ efficient.

So, less carbs = less glucose in your system, which means your body will have to start burning fat as your fuel source.

NOT ALL CARB ARE BAD! 

Carbs still serve a purpose in our diets, but they’re not essential (check out the Inuit Paradox for a great read on societies that exist without almost any carbohydrates).  I prefer to get my carbs from vegetables, sweet potatoes, and fruit.  Why is that?  These foods are naturally occurring in the wild and don’t need to be processed in any way (unlike grains) in order to be consumed.

The other great thing about vegetables is that you can eat as many of them as you like and you’ll never get fat.  They’re incredibly nutrient dense and calorie light – six servings of broccoli (and who would eat 6 servings at once?) has 180 calories and only 36 grams of carbs.  A single serving of pasta (and NOBODY eats just one serving of pasta) has 200 calories and 42 grams of carbs.

If we cut out the grains, almost all processed foods, and dairy, you’re left with only things that occur naturally:

  • Meat – GRASS-FED, not grain-fed. Grain causes the same problem in animals as they do in humans.
  • Fowl – Chicken, duck, hen, turkey…things with wings that (try to) fly.
  • Fish – Wild fish, as mercury and other toxins can be an issue in farmed fish
  • Eggs – Look for Omega-3 enriched eggs.
  • Vegetables – As long as they’re not deep-fried, eat as many as you want.
  • Oils – Olive oil, coconut oil, avocado oil – think natural.
  • Fruits – Have natural sugar, and can be higher in calories, so limit if you’re trying to lose weight.
  • Nuts – High in calories, so they’re good for a snack, but don’t eat bags and bags of them.
  • Tubers – Sweet potatoes and yams.  Higher in calories and carbs, so these are good for right after a workout to replenish your glycogen levels.

Steak with asparagus and sweet potato fries, grilled chicken salad, massive omelets that will fill you up for the whole morning, apples dipped in almond butter (my favorite snack ever), and so on. Pick any of the things from that list, and eat as much as you want of them (with the noted exceptions). You’ll feel better and be healthier.

 

Obviously, the skin has a very complex relationship with the deeper ecology of the body and mind. And already, we can see that there are many places to look when trying to uncover the root cause of an inflammatory skin condition. Among the most important players are:

  • the digestive system
  • the blood
  • the liver
  • any imbalances in vata, pitta, and kapha
  • emotional disturbances
  • the season

The critical takeaway message is this: most skin issues originate deep within the body—with digestive imbalances, weaknesses in related organs, or excess heat and toxicity circulating in the blood—all of which are easily exacerbated by seasonal and emotional influences.

IM-FABULOUS-COSMETICS-INTENSE-DETOX-MASK

Poor lifestyle habits coupled with the environmental toxins and heavy meals that we inevitably come across from day to day can cause harmful toxins to build up in our body and our bloodstreams.

Poor skin tone, a weakened immune system and the risk of serious diseases like heart or liver diseases and even cancer. If you feel that your body needs a healthy cleanse, all is not lost and there are plenty effective natural remedies at hand.

Herbs have been used for centuries to cleanse the body and purify the blood and many of them have developed an excellent reputation as natural cleansers. This article will take a look at some of the most effective herbal cleansers for your blood and your overall health.

1. BURDOCK

Burdock which is also known as arctium lappa has antioxidant agents as well as natural anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties and is especially well known for its ability to purify the skin and to heal many skin complaints including psoriasis, eczema, and acne. Burdock works by stimulating the body to excrete toxins; it effectively flushes out the impurities from the bloodstream and allows toxins to be transported out via the skin.

Burdock is usually taken orally and is available in capsule and tincture form as well as being used to make teas. It is possible for burdock to interact with diuretics and diabetic medications so please make sure that you speak to your doctor before taking it. Likewise, it is not recommended for pregnant or lactating women.

2. DANDELION

Many people consider dandelions to be no more than a pesky eyesore but they have amazing health benefits. Try to resist the temptation to just throw them away; the entire plant including the leaves, stems and the dandelion root can all be put to good use for your health and wellbeing.

Dandelions are packed with vitamins and minerals like potassium, zinc and iron and they have a wide spectrum of health uses ranging from skin complaints to liver and kidney conditions.

Dandelions are a natural diuretic meaning they can stimulate the production of urine and help the body’s detoxification process by flushing the kidneys of toxins and helping the body to excrete excess fluids and salt which in turn helps the body to purify the blood.

You can pick your own dandelions, dry them and make a dandelion root tea. Alternatively, they are available as tinctures and powdered extract.

Because dandelion is a natural diuretic, it may cause certain medications to work less efficiently so check with your doctor before taking it.

3. YELLOW DOCK ROOT

Yellow dock root has traditionally been used to purify the blood and detox the liver and is known to work for several reasons. First of all it stimulates the body’s production of bile ensuring better digestion of fats.

It also promotes urine production and stimulates the excretory system both of which help eliminate toxic waste from the system and prevent toxins from building up in the liver. Yellow dock root is also a powerful antioxidant and studies have demonstrated that it can destroy many harmful organisms.

Like many herbal remedies, yellow dock root can be enjoyed as a herbal tea or taken in capsule and tincture form. Yellow dock root is considered safe for a healthy adult but it is not recommended for women who are breastfeeding or expecting because it has laxative effects that might be passed to the child.

4. STINGING NETTLES

I am sure that everybody has been stung by them at some point in time and it is difficult to imagine that these ugly looking stinging nettles have anything much going for them. However, both the leaves and the stems of these plants contain a number of useful active compounds which include histamine and formic acid.

Nettles have traditionally been used as an herbal remedy for arthritis, migraines, and allergies because of their anti-inflammatory abilities. Nettles are also known as one of the best blood cleansing herbs; they promote pancreatic health act as a natural diuretic and can help reduce blood sugar levels.

Many experts recommend you purify the blood several times each year by drinking a cup of nettle tea every day for a month.

  1. To make stinging nettle tea, simply bring half a liter of water to the boil; add in a tablespoon of dried nettles, cover your pot and let it steep for 30 minutes.
  2. For the most delicious and healthy results, try drinking it unsweetened.

5. MILK THISTLE

Milk thistle has been used at least 2,000 years for a litany of medicinal purposes. It has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activities and is especially well known for its ability to detoxify the liver. Your liver’s health is absolutely essential because of the purification functions it performs. The liver cleans the blood day in and day out allowing it to support nearly every system in our bodies.

The main active ingredient of milk thistle is a flavonoid called silymarin which is responsible for many of its therapeutic benefits. Silymarin can help to repair liver cells that are damaged by toxins and can even protect new cells from further damage. Milk thistle also promotes the production of bile which is an important aid to digestion and the effective absorption of nutrients.

Milk thistle can be taken in capsule, liquid extract or tincture form and is generally regarded as safe. It should, however, be avoided by pregnant and nursing women and might interact with certain medications.

6. TURMERIC

While turmeric is a spice rather than an herb, it is very worthy of a mention in any article related to detoxification and blood cleansing. Turmeric is a powerful anti-oxidant food which provides a full range of health support including its ability to effectively detoxify the liver and improve blood circulation.

Turmeric aids digestion especially the digestion of fat by stimulating the body’s secretion of bile and boosts immunity by promoting a healthier liver function.

7. INDIAN HERBS

There are many Indian herbs that are possibly less well known in the west but have nevertheless been used successfully for generations to clean the blood and to detoxify the body. Popular blood cleansing Indian herbs include neem, guduchi, antamul and manjistha all of which have an excellent reputation as effective blood cleansers.

WHAT TO AVOID

  • In order to ensure that you get the most from your cleanse, it is important to avoid food and drinks that contribute to toxic build-up in your bodies.
  • Avoid or at least limit your consumption of processed food, sugars, alcohol, caffeine dairy and animal products.

As well as the herbal remedies mentioned above, make sure that you are drinking plenty of water and try to get at least 30 minutes of exercise in every day.
