We all know how important it is to consume vitamin C. Ever since we were kids, we’ve been told to eat oranges to avoid catching a cold in the winter.
You probably know that this vitamin boosts your immune system, but what you may not know is that it is also very beneficial for your skin. In order to reap the benefits, you don’t have to consume foods rich in vitamin C, you can apply it directly to your skin.
Vitamin C does wonders, it is "your best ally" in fighting wrinkles. Its antioxidant properties help your skin fight free radicals, which damage collagen and elastin your body produces.

As the years go by, the first signs of premature aging appear on our skin: the famous wrinkles! Our skin naturally has a good reserve of ascorbic acid, which is derived from vitamin C.
When our skin is exposed to ultraviolet rays, this reserve decreases, in turn producing less collagen. For this reason it is so important to use cosmetics containing vitamin C, which is also extremely powerful in treating sun spots.

"Sleep is a virtue, We must honor and respect the virtues of a good night’s sleep. Our immune, nervous and muscular systems rejuvenate while we sleep."
A good night's sleep is essential to perfect skin, we all agree. Now what many forget is that what we need is quality, true rest – ideally for many hours! It will do wonders for your health.
While we sleep, our bodies produce growth hormones, these are important for cell renewal, our immune and nervous system, and they help repair tissue - including skin.
Cells have a life cycle, they are created and they die, and with repeated unsatisfying nights of sleep, cells fail to rejuvenate. Therefore, people who sleep poorly age more quickly, in addition to developing other health problems.
We know that the stress of your day makes it impossible to dedicate time to quality sleep, especially for eight hours straight. But we have good news! Even just 6 hours of deep, uninterrupted sleep can also have repairing effects.
Sleeping well does not mean sleeping many hours on the weekend, or that you like to sleep. Sleep is a daily exercise, we need to create a routine. Many envy those who can sleep a lot!
Do you know what the most beneficial schedule is for your body? Sleeping from 10 pm to 6 am. We must remember that our body is governed by the sun.
We sleep better during the nighttime, that’s when our bodies release melatonin, a hormone produced by the pineal gland that induces deep sleep, this hormone decreases as we approach 30 years.
Tricks for better sleep:
1. Try to go to bed every night at the same time, it is essential to create a routine.
2. Lights should be off, avoid running the washing machine or strange background noises, silence is important.
3. The temperature in your room has to be comfortable, not too cold or too hot.
4. Do not bring your laptop, iPad or mobile to bed. They will keep you awake with their light and sounds.
5. Try these tricks for one month, you will see the difference.



As for your skin, yes, we should use night cosmetics before going to bed and not at any other time of day.
The first reason is that some lose their effectiveness when exposed to sunlight, others may put your skin at risk by not having any protection and may even cause blemishes or skin irritation.
The second reason is that they are much more effective at night, as your body is in full cell renewal mode while you sleep.
A very interesting new idea that has reached the market is called a bio-alarm clock, which is an app for your mobile phone. It records your stages of sleep while you sleep and analyzes them on a graph.
It creates a profile page displaying all stages of your sleep, including the time you fall asleep, wake up, total sleep time and the overall average. Using the results, you can set an alarm to wake you up at the ideal time during the last 30 minutes of your sleep, thus avoiding waking up during deep sleep (REM).
REM sleep is when you are in a deep sleep, when your eyes have that rapid movement (hence the name), when you are dreaming.
How serious is to wake up when you are in REM sleep?
Not very, but you might feel a little different and more tired. You won’t have the feeling of waking from a restful sleep. Sleep technicians in laboratories where tests are conducted are instructed not to wake patients if they are in REM. The most memorable dreams occur at this stage, in which muscle weakness and self-induced paralysis prevails.
Do these devices really work? Yes!
There are different brands that work on different devices. You'll have to see which best suits your smartphone.
It’s worth a try, start to analyze your nights’ sleep. It might make you more productive during the day and improve your health, and logically also your skin.
Sweet Dreams!

The fact that women spend so much money on expensive cosmetics does not mean that they get the most out of them. What many women (and men) do not know is that daily facial care must extend to your neck and chest, two areas that are just as sensitive and thin as your face.
These areas are affected even more than your face by the sun and other external aggressors, in addition to age. But strangely enough, we don’t take care of them with the same dedication as we do our faces.
That is why we see women with a tight face and perfectly smooth skin, but as they weren't careful with their neck and chest, their age shows through with the wrinkles and spots.
Many women between 50-60 years old complain about this detail. They say that for decades they did not devote the same care to these areas, they simply forgot.

Neck alert

Neck alert!

It is not difficult to take care of these areas. Plus, it is always better to be safe than sorry. You have to worry just as much about these areas as your face: clean and protect them from the sun. Of course there are specific products for your neck but it is more practical to apply the same ones we put on our face.
Now we are going to discuss some types of products that we recommend for your everyday life without the need to spend more money on specific products for your neck:
Day: After cleansing and toning, apply a serum rich in vitamin C and other antioxidants and then sunscreen. Apply it to your face and continue until your neckline.
Night: After cleansing and toning, apply alpha-hydroxyl acid (daily and very soft peeling) serum to your face and neck and then a deep moisturizing cream.
Pay attention to your chin, this is another area that we do not think about too much, but wrinkles also appear in these places. It is very simple to keep it hydrated.
Caring for these areas of your face, neck, chest, etc, helps us to delay dermatological procedures such as peeling, fillers or even resorting to the scalpel. Moreover, with the neckline area well hydrated the skin becomes more elastic and helps keeping the breast firm and fight gravity.
Remember, you have to take care of yourself now so you do not complain tomorrow. It may seem an exaggeration, especially for those who are between 20 and 30 years old, but it is not.
For those that are already above 30 and have spent a lot of time exposed to the sun or have not taken care of these areas, you still can do a lot! More and more companies are making specific products to help catch up with hydration for these underserved areas.
The same goes for caring for your hands, lack of hydration and sun protection. It is much harder to remove the stains than to prevent them.
We hope you took some notes, we are sure that in a few years you will thank us later!
