Re Train Your Face Now

Look Younger Naturally

Emotions are a glue that hold mind and body together. And it is when you are stressed your face shows it, it is almost as if your life story is being written on the face. But the same applies to when you are happy and content with life, your face radiates and everyone around you comes towards you. People gravitate to those that are happy. When you are happy you always look good!

Life pressures and harmful stressors contribute to the emotions etching creases on our faces. Fortunately, we can change this by making meditation and gratitude an important part of our life. Start your morning with loving thoughts and intentions to set the tone for the rest of the day, and later rehearse your day and find something good that happen that day, what you are grateful for even if is a very small thing. Let’s remember to praise ourselves for each day the same as you praise others. Once you take care of your mind then you can take steps to improve your lifestyle by improving on your diet and exercise to support your healthy well-being.

Let’s remember, self care is self love, you can’t wait for something or someone outside of you to make you happy, you need to be happy with who you are. You are enough. You are perfect the way you are and once you embody those thoughts you are then able to love unconditionally and attract people who can take you in the direction of your dreams. And from there it is easy to open up to possibilities the world has to offer.

Nothing outside of you will make you happy unless you are happy with yourself.

Eckhart Tolle in The Power Of Now
Relaxing Music Curated Just For You

When you are stressed, you frown causing deep V line between your eyebrows. When you are worried and retreat from life and place yourself in a ‘cocoon’ of imaginary world while deciding you can’t be happy. Once you withdraw from the reality and wait for something to happen to make you alive again, you stop smiling and that in itself shows your story around the mouth. When you are not moving the face muscles they lose strength just like the muscles in your arms or legs. The deep groove around the mouth is a result of that. The skin will lose the bounce and begin to sag very quickly. Lastly, when you decide you’ll become addicted to your phone and spend hours on checking messages, you’ll be granted a double chin. Just like that!

But there is hope, and it is in your hands. All you need is your willingness to find an esthetician to guide you and then follow a plan. Your hands are the tools that can get you there quickly. If you need help request a Virtual Consultation with Yolanda, skin care expert at Speranzi Facial Spa.

Want A Youthful and Glowing Skin?

Clear your mind, get plenty of rest and try to eat healthy.

Saddy, it all slides down from 25 years of age, our body begins to deplete its own collagen which is the glue that holds everything together, at the rate of 1%-2% each year. As a result our skin becomes thinner and blood vessels become more fragile causing broken capillaries and skin sagging. By the time you are 50 years old you have lost 25%-40% of the collagen and a healthy lifestyle can help you reverse some of this damage. During this time you need to become familiar with facial treatments and good skin care products that can support your skin. This would be a good time to find a skin care professional who can help with all of that and teach you home remedies so that you can take control over skin aging at home. Face massage is one of my favorite ways to keeping the skin and face muscles younger.

Is is possible to get back the youthful look?

The good news is aging has very little to do with our genes, 70% of how we age is determined by the lifestyle we lead.

Thanks to Albert Einstein, one thing is sure, the energy can not be created nor destroyed but it can be generated. What if you knew how to Re-Train Your Face by doing same gym for your face?

Breaking A Habit Of Living In The Future

Just last week you’d never consider the option of spending all of your free time at home. Our life was set on auto-pilot and all we had to do was to get up and go. Stress and anxiety was something that we got used to. Migraines, headaches and insomnia created discomfort but we accepted it as a part of life. All of the sudden, the fast-paced lifestyle become irrelevant and what we don’t have is not as important. We are finally here, in the present moment noticing things around us like never before.

While our routines and busy schedules have been turned upside down for a short while, we finally have the time to look in the mirror, spend time with ourselves and reevaluate what’s important in life.

Do I really need all of the clothes in my closet? Half of it has never been worn?

Do I need all of the skin care in my drawers? I don’t know what to do with most of those products which I spend lots of money on.

What’s in my fridge? Do I really have what it takes to keep me well nourished and healthy?

Here is one idea to begin grounding yourself.

Surrender To The Moment.

How The Skin Communicates With The Gut

yolandarusso.live

The Standard American Diet (SAD) is a high-glycemic diet rich in processed fast foods, refined carbohydrates and animal proteins known to create all kinds of inflammatory responses. In addition, this type of diet can increase secretion of android hormones such as testosterone that triggers sweat glands to work extra hard and make the skin look and feel sticky. As a result a T-zone suffers in a way that the pores enlarge, blackheads or whiteheads come up and you squeeze them out causing more breakouts in addition to acne scars.

You can blame the old food pyramid for the current obesity epidemic and since 2011 the food pyramid has retired and is replaced by MyPlate . But like with everything else we need to take charge of what we put on our plate and how much of it in order to stay healthy and younger looking.

According to scientists the gut, brain and skin are complex organs and although the communication link has been recognized but admittedly not fully understood. The gut and skin are filled with microbes that impact the health of those organs. This is nothing new to practitioners of traditional Chinese medicine and Ayurvedic medicine that have been around for thousands of years. They both have a gut-centric approach to health and disease. Many of ingredients called “superfoods” today, like green tea, seaweed, kimchi, and mushrooms come from the traditional Asian diets. Western medicine is working on it. Here are some cons of SAD.

Here are three ways of gut-skin communication:

  • Taking in of nutrients and immediate effect on the skin( the skin either looks glowing or irritated with acne breakouts within 12 hours )
  • Absorption of nutrients that can trigger hormonal changes that affect the skin (breakouts on the chin are blamed on hormones)
  • Influence of gut microbes and toxins on the health of the skin ( probiotics are known to assist in keeping balance in the digestive track)

What is interesting that the gut houses 60 to 70 percent of the body’s immune cells which communicate with the brain and all other organs including the skin. If you want to stay healthy you need to start with your gut. According to www.health.gov about half of American adults have one or more diet-related chronic diseases such as heart disease, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, and certain cancers.

Acne is another far-reaching problem that affects people not only physically but emotionally. According to Colorado Dermatology Clinic only 10 percent of individuals consult their physician while 20 percent of affected individuals seek assistance from a skin care center. Surprisingly, 40 percent of individuals do nothing to treat acne while the other 30 percent simply use over-the-counter products.

Let’s sum it up, to look good and feel good you must begin with adjustments you make in your diet. High carbs and refined foods are quick and easy to find but if you make an effort and begin adding colorful veggies to your plate you’ll win the race to a healthier you.

For help with your skin and selection of the correct skin care products for your skin please consult with your local skin care professional or reach out to Yolanda Russo, skin care expert at Speranzi Facial Spa. Virtual Beauty Visits are available, book it through our www.speranzi.com website today.

Re Train Your Face

Do you remember the time when your skin always looked good no matter what you were eating and how many hours of sleep you have gotten?

I agree most of us are noticing visible changes in our complexion by the age of 40. But as you’ll read in the book Retrain Your Face: A Simple Guide To Looking Younger at 50 and Beyond Yolanda Russo, skin care expert talks about ways of reversing the skin aging naturally.

I believe that the old phrase “Beauty Is Skin Deep” is no longer true. Today, “Beauty Is Mind-Body Deep.”

The skin of the face is a window to your state of being. When you are stressed the face show the frown lines. When tired you notice the dark circles. When you have a headache, the face looks pale and drawn. We wear stress on our faces. The good news is that your body is very forgiving in that as soon as you become more physically active, the muscles regain their strength and stamina. In the same way, with a small effort and know-how-to, you can exercise your face into looking younger naturally.

The fact is that skin aging begins the moment we are born. Let’s not label our skin mature before we are ready for that. Regrettably, our society still has not changed its paradigms. Even though we age, most of us don’t feel like we are senior citizens at 50. Most people want to look and feel younger regardless of their actual age. More proof that aging has a lot to do with a mindset was provided in a study done in the late fall of 1981 by a Harvard psychologist Ellen Langer.

Ellen recruited eight healthy men in their 70s. Some of them who walked with canes, others who shuffled their feet, quickly agreed to participate in this radical experiment of time travel. She believed that people needed to go through psychological ‘prime’ for the body to take corrective measures on its own to heal the symptoms of old age. All eight volunteers were stationed in a monastery in New Hampshire that was staged with artifacts of 1959. As they opened the door to the ‘men’s house’ all they saw was a vintage radio, black and white tv, their pictures, books and magazines and other details depicting the life and culture of 1959. They were instructed to think and act as if they were living in 1959, 22 years earlier. The experiment was to take five days. During this experiment, the men acted much younger than what they actually were. Amazingly, their biomarkers outperformed the control group and suggested that the mind can accept a new reality at any given time.
