Best Defense Against Aging
With age comes wisdom, but let’s face it, nobody wants to get old. At least, nobody wants to have the signs and suffering that come with getting old, such as wrinkles, and diseases. With so many anti-aging products on the market, it can be dizzying trying to figure it all out. Besides, many of those over the counter products are not very effective. In this article we are going to help you make certain lifestyle changes to slow the aging process and look more youthful.
One of the biggest culprits of aging are free radicals. Free radicals come from many of the foods we eat, as well as through normal processes, such as digestion. They also come from external sources, such as pollution, smoking, second hand smoke, chemicals in our food and environment, and more. Antioxidants combat free radicals.
Antioxidants can be found in many fresh fruits and vegetables,as well as some dairy. Foods with high antioxidant value are avocados, blueberries, green tea, nuts, legumes, yogurt, and more. It is best to eat at a colorful variety of least 5 fresh fruits daily. It is also very important to remain hydrated, so drink at least eight 8 oz glasses of water daily. Water purifies the body!
Reduce your calories. It has been long held that those with a reduced caloric intake live longer. Recent research studies have shown that to be true also in rodents and primates. This is not about weight loss, although that is an added benefit. The key is to eat fewer calories, while maintaining a regular balance of vitamins, minerals and other essential nutrients.
While eating healthy foods aids in fighting aging from within, many of those can also be used externally to further aid in the process. Used topically, green tea helps reduce the amount of UV rays absorbed into the skin, as well it helps fight the damage already done to the skin. Yogurt, avocado, honey and other foods are also great to use as masks to reverse damage to the skin. Proper skin care is good method of reducing the effects of free radicals. Bring your products into the spa and we will conduct an analysis for you and make professional recommendations. Also, treating yourself to an exfoliating and hydrating facial regularly will really reduce any physical signs of aging.

Another area to consider, when wishing to prolong youth and life itself, is exercise. When we exercise regularly, we keep our body in better condition and it has a way of fighting off the process of aging and many diseases. In this aspect, we can avoid the frailty that comes with the aging process. A good cardio workout keeps the heart strong, along with the other muscles in the body. This not only affects the inner workings of the body, but also the appearance.
Wear your rose colored shades! Those who keep a positive outlook on life, remain more youthful and live longer. The reason is they have less stress! Stress is number one in leading to faster aging and diseases. You have a choice in what you do with it. If you allow life’s challenges to get to you, then you are lowering your immune system and causing damage to your heart and other organs. Rather than letting stress sit in your heart and mind, accept life’s challenges for what they are, deal with them, and let go!
Incorporating these changes into your lifestyle will help you to age gracefully and live longer. The power is within your reach, so take charge now! You will be so thankful you did later. Live long and prosper!
This Summer IS the Summer for YOU to Actually make a difference in the way you look AND at the same time allow your skin to Function as it was DESIGNED to...
Did you know that your skin is your body’s largest organ? It plays major roles in your immune defense system, temperature regulation, protection from external injuries and much, much more. But these days most ladies are only concerned about “how their skin looks”. A HEALTHY skin looks hydrated, glowing, fresh, youthful and is free from excessive pigment, dryness/oiliness, blotchiness, broken veins, acne and has an even skin tone and color.
Have a look in the mirror right now..
Could your skin improve? Does your skin glow with health? Does it feel smooth? Does it look plump and refreshed? Is it even textured and colored? If not then this summer is your summer to do something about it and get your skin FUNCTIONING properly and looking HEALTHY. A healthy skin literally GLOWS with youth. So in the search for eternal youth you need to first CARE for your skin.
One of the easiest, quickest and most effective ways to help your skin function properly is to exfoliate your skin. When we are young our cell turnover rate is high. Your skin produces lots of new fresh skin cells and sheds off the old dead skin cells that can block your skin. As we age this turnover rate slows down dramatically and you need to give your skin a helping hand. Whilst performing a twice weekly exfoliation at home is beneficial (and highly recommended) you also must have regular professional exfoliation.
Professional exfoliation gives a deeper more intense exfoliation of the skin, removes a greater amount of the dead skin cell build up and HYDRATES your skin at the same time. Professional exfoliation may be in the form of skin peels, microdermabrasion, manual exfoliation or targeted enzyme based products. Professional exfoliation removes ALL the dead cell build up on your skin and in doing so allows your skin to rid itself of congestion, even out skin tone, gives a fresher more youthful appearance to your skin and will boost the antioxidant level in your skin. It will also hydrate your skin, replace essential moisture and stimulate collagen production (something else our skin struggles with as we age).
Forget how your skin “looks” for a change and think about the fact that your skin has to last you a lifetime, literally. Care for your skin and it in turn will reward you with beauty, youth and glow.

Spa Q and A
There are so many sunscreens on the market, which one is the best?
This is a great question now that summer is here. Traditional sunscreens have so many chemicals that are absorbed into the skin and you have to apply them 20 mins before going into the sun for them to be effective. I recommend and use a mineral sun protection.This powerful sun protection is dusted on and patted in. Mineral sun protection is a lightweight, full spectrum SPF 30 powder that is water resistant. It can be used on men, women, children and people with sensitive skin with out irritating. I think one of the best things about mineral sun protection is that there is no 20 min wait. You can apply it and it starts to work immediately. At Spa-lon Euphoria we have Jane Iredale, which is recommended by the Skin Cancer Foundation. Stop by and protect yourself!
