How to Slow Signs of Aging + VIIcode O2M Oxygen Eye Mask Review

Sample DisclosureHow to Slow Signs of AgingAfter turning 30 a few years ago, I became very interested in anti-aging tips and products. My grandmother’s are only one year apart and when they were in their 70s, I began to notice how different their aging speeds were. My maternal grandmother looks years older than my paternal grandmother although she was only months older.

Here are a few things that I’ve learned about how to slow down the aging process to maintain a youthful complexion and look for longer:

One – Drink Lots of Water

Water is so important, and only becomes more important as your body begins to age. Keeping your skin hydrated does wonders to reduce the fine lines and wrinkles and to keep your skin’s elasticity stronger for a longer period of time.

water

Two – Be Careful of What You Consume

Eating healthy foods not only helps to maintain a smaller waist line, it also helps your body and skin to slow the aging process. Eating highly processed foods can take a toll not only on your physical health but on your complexion and skin as well. Also, avoid smoking at all costs! My grandmother who looked a decade older than she was was an avid smoker and was evidence of the toll that smoking takes on your body.

Three – Anti-Aging Products

Find good anti-aging products to keep your skin and complexion youthful. I recently was offered the VIIcode O2M Oxygen Eye Mask to try out and have grown to love them! One of my problem areas is around my eyes as that is the place that first had noticeable fine lines and wrinkles. The most noticeable part of that area of my face, however, was puffiness and dark circles.

v o2

So, I was thrilled when I was asked to try this product. I noticed a difference right away and the results only increased the more consistently I used them. The only downside is that they are a tad difficult to get used to wearing overnight, but after a couple uses, it didn’t bother me so bad.

This photo was taken right before I used these patches for the first time:

FullSizeRender (2)

And this is a photo taken just a few days ago after using them three times a week for two weeks:

FullSizeRender (1)

There is such an improvement on the puffiness and dark circles with just two weeks of use. Not only are the dark circles noticeably lessened in the after photo, but I’m also only wearing tinted moisturizer as opposed to concealer and full coverage foundation in the first photo. Overall, I really love this product and plan to add it to my regular weekly facial care routine from now on.

You can pick up the VIIcode O2M Oxygen Eye Mask from Amazon at a great price compared to similar products. Jinxy Beauty readers can save $5 on this 3 box package! Just enter coupon code NMXE4XMO!

Holiday Gift Guide: Le Mieux Skin Perfecter and TGF-B Booster + Giveaway!

Sample Disclosureunnamed (1)

Get the perks of professional facials at the convenience of home with the Skin Perfecter!  This year’s perfect beauty gift is a 4-in-1 At-Home Tool  that improves skin appearance, brightness, radiance, skin texture & smoothness.  Give the perks of professional facials at the convenience of home with the Skin Perfecter!

This non-invasive beauty tool combines four skin treatments into one tool to deep cleanse, exfoliate, extract, and infuse serums and other topical treatments for smoother, brighter, perfect-looking skin. It never requires any replacement brush, cartridge, or disc.

Professional-strength ultrasonic waves gently and visibly improve lines and wrinkles, pores, texture, clarity, and smoothness after every treatment. In clinical studies performed over a period of only two weeks, 100% of participants showed an immediate improvement in skin exfoliation, while 84% of participants saw improvement in overall skin appearance, 80% of participants saw immediate improvement in brightness, 69% of participants saw an immediate improvement in radiance, luminosity and healthier-looking skin, 65% of participants saw an improvement in the appearance of skin texture and smoothness, and 50% of participants saw an improvement in appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

unnamed

Resonating at an amazing 28,000 vibrations per second, the Skin Perfecter gently glides over wet skin, producing ultrasonic waves that pulverize water, creating micronized particles that deep cleanse pores of excess oil and impurities, exfoliate cellular debris, extractimperfections, reduce the appearance of enlarged pores, and resurface lines and wrinkles. As an added benefit, its pulsating ultrasonic waves accelerate the absorption of serums and other skincare products, which is confirmed by the clinical study, producing far more effective results than massaging products into the skin by hand.

To perform effective deep cleansing, extraction and exfoliation, Luu recommends holding the unit with the tip of the spatula angled down. “Keep the skin wet, and always move the Skin Perfecter outward and upward,” she advises.  To infuse serums or skincare treatments, apply product to the face and neck. Hold the unit with the tip of the spatula flat against the skin. Gently glide the spatula outward and upward over the face and neck. After the treatment, turn off the unit, clean the spatula with an alcohol-saturated cotton pad, and store in a cool, dry place.

The Skin Perfecter features an easy-to-hold ergonomic design, 4 levels of intensity, a battery indicator that lights up when the device is charged, a rechargeable battery that allows more than 2 hours of operation, an automatic alarm and shut off after 10 minutes, and a DC power supply adapter. The device measures 6.85 x 2.05 x 0.75 inches (174 x 52 x 19mm) and weighs 3.88 ounces without the adapter (.11 kg).

tgf-b_booster_1oz-480x480r

Another great gift idea is the TGF-B Booster also from Le Mieux.  This silky, hydrating serum with 4 potent peptides, 5 revolutionary proteins, powerful antioxidants, and algae extracts  improves the appearance of facial contours, reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and restores a healthy glow. Boosts results when used with other skincare products. Features Superoxide Dismutase for extreme antioxidant benefits.

ScarAway Scar Repair Gel Review + Reader Giveaway

Sample DisclosureScarAway Scar Repair Gel sample

 

Many of us can find some sort of scar from a scrape, injury or mishap that has happened at one time or another.  It would be nice if we could get by without ever having injuries but usually at some point in life something is bound to happen… and leave a mark that we wish we didn’t have.

My husband has an adventurous story about when he raced my nephew up the ladder of a silo. He caught his arm on the metal ladder and it left a scar. Luckily there are amazing products like ScarAway® Scar Repair Gel that can help make scars so they are NOT the center of a conversation.

 

The first thing that we liked is that the Gel does not have a strong smell to it and is orderless.  We also liked that it does not have a color, ’cause who wants to look like they are covering up a scar and wearing makeup? More important is – who wants the Scar to be the first thing people notice?  If you have a scar and prefer it NOT to be the first impression people see for you, then try ScarAway® Scar Repair Gel.IMG_1257

ScarAway® Scar Repair Gel, featuring patented Kelo-cote® technology, carries the only patented, transparent, self-drying 100% silicone gel designed to improve the appearance of scars and prevent abnormal or excessive scar formation.

  • The elegant, transparent gel offers convenient application for custom scar prevention and treatment that can begin the moment a wound has healed or sutures are removed.
  • Results can be seen in as little as two to three weeks; full results may be seen in 60-90 for new scars and 90 days or more for older scars.
  • For the treatment and prevention of abnormal scars of various sizes and locations, including hypertrophic (red and raised) and keloid scars.
  • Effective on old and new scars.
