Have More Control Over the Way You Age

The skin is the largest organ of the body and works beautifully as a shield to keep environmental toxins out of the body. The skin‘s purpose is to prevent these toxins from penetrating the body’s delicate internal machinery. Most people don’t realize that the skin and hair have evolved filtration functions. Skin, for example, keeps impurities out by electro-statically filtering chemicals out of the air and concentrating these polluted cells in the epidermal barrier cells, before shedding them.

Unfortunately, environmental chemicals (i.e.: iron and lead), exposure to radiation (i.e.: UV rays, X-rays, etc), pollution, inappropriate diet and stress are highly toxic to the human body. The skin cannot shed itself fast enough to keep these elements from damaging the underlying physiological process. This is one reason why skin cancer has become the most common malignancy in mankind.

Of all the therapies addressing skin-disorders, anti-oxidants ability to combat oxidative stress remains the most popular. Oxidative stress is the damage caused to skin cells by free radicals. Free radicals are unstable oxygen molecules without electrons, which attached to healthy molecules with electrons in order to achieve their own stabilization. It is transformed into another free radical, triggering a chain reaction that can produce thousands of free radicals in seconds. The damage caused by these free radicals is cellular breakdown. Surface damage manifests itself in superficial lines, deep wrinkles, dry skin, loss of elasticity and skin discoloration. In the deeper levels of the skin, free radicals can destroy the collagen and elastin support system, damage DNA and enzymes, impair immune functions and originate tissue deterioration.

Skin color and the Role of Melanin


Human skin has red, yellow, brown and blue tones. What we actually perceive in skin color is the reflected light off the skin. The best way to see true skin color is in natural light.

Melanin is also known as pigment.  Melanin production is essentially a protective mechanism to prevent ultra violet damage to the cell nucleus.The basic unit of melanin is tyrosine, an amino acid which goes through a variety of conversions before melanin starts to form. Melanin is then transferred to the keratin cells by melanosomes. These cells rise to the stratum corneum, and eventually are sloughed from the skin.

Got Cellulite?

Did you know that cellulite is in the layers of your skin? When your skin is dehydrated, sun damaged, or saggy, cellulite is more obvious. The good news is that you can improve the hydration and firmness of your skin by applying topical cellulite products that boost the skin’s collagen and elastin.

All natural CelluliteRx® LipoLift Firming Lotion is formulated with advanced, ultra-pure botanical peptides, Alpha Copper Tripeptide-4™ and Acetyl Alpha-Tetrapeptide-5™, that stimulates the skin’s collagen production. Collagen is a complex of proteins that build the strength and structure of your skin. The peptides in LipoLift are especially effective in fighting cellulite because they are infused with two powerful antioxidants, rose hips and pomegranate, that help regenerate skin cells. The protective properties of these botanical extracts support healthy skin renewal and repair, making your skin firmer with the additional benefits of improved youthful tone and texture.

Do you want to firm the skin on your abdomen, neck, or back of your arms? LipoLift Firming Lotion to the rescue! Women report that LipoLift is not just for cellulite. It tightens skin anywhere on your body. Give your body a lift with CelluliteRx ® LipoLift!

What a fantastic day for my daughter and me. We both got glowing facials (Judith and Leah)and I got a much needed massage from Jane't. Sun was shining, we both left refreshed and happy. All of you are great. Thank you.
