Preventing Acne

The Best Post-Workout Face Regimen to Prevent Acne

Category : Instructionals , Skincare

It’s hard to argue the benefits of working out as every sweaty session brings you a step closer to optimal physical and mental health. However, just as you can count on endorphins flooding your brain, sweat and dirt are on standby ready to clog your pores and produce unsightly acne.

By incorporating an after-work-out skin regimen, you can keep your attention focused on the barbells and not your breakouts.

Post-Work-out Face Routines

  • Make your own facial wipes. Be prepared for the days you don’t have time to take a shower after working out. All you need is a cheap pack of alcohol-free baby wipes soaked in witch hazel and you have all the same benefits of pricey name brand cleansers without the cost. Stash them in a Ziploc and store the bag in your purse or gym locker for busy days.
  • Don’t forget to exfoliate! When you can shower after workouts, aim to exfoliate at least every other time. Gym-goers tend to host more oil-trapping skin cells than the average Joe. Revitalize your skin and remove dead skin cells by gently rubbing your face with a washcloth in circular motions. Make your own natural skin scrub with honey, sugar, and lemon.
  • Change your clothes ASAP. Don’t hang out in sweaty clothes any longer than necessary. Even if you don’t have time to rinse off between workouts, you can still prevent face and body acne by changing into clean, dry clothes that aren’t dripping with pore-clogging sweat, dirt, and beauty products that may have rubbed off during your work-out.
  • Be mindful of extra showers. If frequent post-workout showers are causing dry skin, add a moisturizing face cream into the mix to keep your skin hydrated between workouts. Similarly, the more often you shower and use hair care products, the more susceptible you’ll be to product buildup that can collect around your hairline and cause acne as you sweat.

Pre-Workout Practices

Clear skin doesn’t rely solely on your post-workout face routine as what you do before hitting the treadmill matters just as much.

  • Wear moisture-wicking fabrics – Acne isn’t just limited to your face. Avoid breakouts on your arms, back, and buttocks by wearing appropriate workout apparel. Cotton will become heavy and stick to your skin while harboring sweat. Opt instead for synthetic fabrics that divert moisture and allow your skin to breathe.
  • Start with a fresh face – Makeup and sweat are a terrible combination that creates excess oil and promotes acne. Your pores open as your body heats up, so it’s best to work out with a clean face that’s free of makeup.
  • Pack a sweat towel – Resist the natural urge to wipe your brow with your hand – especially after touching bacteria-ridden gym equipment that others have used. Gross, right? Your skin thinks so, too! Keep a clean towel in your gym bag to gently dab – not wipe – your face between sets. Vigorous rubbing can cause further skin irritation.
  • Stay up on your routine – If the idea of heading to the gym without makeup makes you anxious, you may want to rethink your daily skin care routine. The healthier your skin, the less you’ll feel inclined to use oil-producing makeup products. Using Elite Serum Rx, for example, can reduce under-eye puffiness and dark circles and eventually replace expensive pore-clogging concealers.

Staying acne free requires dedication to a before- and after-work-out skin regimen. It doesn’t have to be timely or costly though – simply keep your face as clean as possible to prevent acne breakouts. You might not be bothered by sweat, but your pores don’t necessarily agree!

Keep Your Face Free of Wrinkles

The Best Ways to Keep Your Face Wrinkle Free this Summer

Category : Instructionals

Nobody wants to deal with wrinkles on their face. Even guys that claim they don’t care about things like skin care, and don’t buy skin care products, don’t want to look any older than they are.

If you care about your skin, you probably already know that summer is one of the most potentially damaging times of year. That’s because most people spend a lot of time out in the sun, which produces its most intense UVA and UVB rays of the year in the summer months.

Just because it is summer, doesn’t mean you have to just accept the skin damage that could come with the season though. Use this guide to help you keep wrinkles at bay this summer and throughout every other season as well.

Moisturize Properly

A lot of people buy and use moisturizer on a regular basis. Maybe not everyone puts it on every single day, but many people are diligent about using it. Keeping your skin supple and moist can help reduce fine lines and wrinkles, so we always suggest using a good facial moisturizer regularly.

Using a quality moisturizer is even more important in the summer when your skin is likely to be very dry. Even if you live in a humid climate, chances are sweat, dirt and all that exposure to the sun will make your skin feel a bit parched.

For the best results in the summer months, always apply a facial moisturizer with an SPF rating of 15 or higher. That way the delicate skin on your face will be protected even when you’re only outside for 10 minutes at a time.

Wear Sunscreen

You’ve heard many times that you’re supposed to wear sunscreen whenever you plan to spend time in the summer sun. It’s not news to anyone anymore, but just because you know you’re supposed to, doesn’t mean you do it every time, right? It also doesn’t mean that you apply sunscreen the right way.

Buy a high-quality, broad spectrum sunscreen with a minimum SPF rating of 30. While sunscreens over 30 can give you a little more protection, you’re usually playing a game of diminishing returns with your money. In most cases, it’s better to reapply SPF 30 more often than going for the SPF 50.

To use sunscreen properly, start by applying it to your skin about 20 to 30 minutes before you leave the house. That way you’ll give your sunscreen time to dry and set in place.

You’ll also want to reapply every 60 to 75 minutes or so after swimming or perspiring heavily. When it comes to sunscreen, more is always a good thing, so don’t worry about going overboard.

Get a Pair of Sunglasses!

Wrinkles around the eyes often pop up around the summer months because people spend so much time squinting. Over the course of a lifetime, you could develop some serious fine lines around your eyes.

Buy a pair of sunglasses that allow you to see well without squinting. Pick a stylish pair and buy a quality case for them so they’ll always be handy. Get in the habit of wearing them when you’re outside and you won’t have to fight wrinkles quite as much.

Puffy Eyes Causes

What Causes Puffy Eyes and How to Prevent Them

Category : Skincare

At Elite Serum Rx, we specialize in the treatment of wrinkles and reducing the appearance of visible lines around the eyes. One of the most common conditions we assist in treating is puffiness around the eyes. This condition is very common and can have several different causes. Keep reading to learn what these causes are, how to treat them, and how we can help.

The Causes of Puffy Eyes

There are a variety of issues that can cause puffy eyes. Some of these causes are related to lifestyle and others to health. These issues can include the following:

  • Too much salt in the diet leading to fluid retention.
  • Allergic reactions of various types such as seasonal allergies.
  • Sinus problems or ailments.
  • Dehydration and a lack of fluids.
  • Insomnia or general poor sleeping habits.
  • Too much daily stress.
  • Excessive crying.
  • Exposure to eye irritants such as smoke and dust.

Treatments for Puffy Eyes

Many of the above issues can be treated by dealing with their underlying causes. For example:

  • Use eye drops in response to allergies.
  • Avoid dehydration by drinking plenty of water.
  • Ice can reduce general swelling caused by a variety of issues as can a washcloth that has been dipped in cold weather and placed over the eyes.
  • Reducing salt consumption and making sure your diet is healthy and rich in vitamin intake.
  • Use creams containing aloe vera, vitamin E, and vitamin K.
  • Increasing potassium intake which in turn reduces fluid retention.
  • Getting enough sleep nightly, roughly 7 to 8 hours is advisable.
  • Lastly, be sure to seek medical attention if your symptoms are severe and include more pronounced ailments such as pain, itching, or redness.

Unfortunately, aging is not something you can avoid and the same is also true for a genetic predisposition to puffy eyes or under-eye bags. As people age, fatty tissue can cause puffiness as it pushes forward in the area around the eyes. When aging is the root cause of puffy eyes, a cosmetic treatment may be required. These can include eyelid surgery where excess fat is removed, laser treatments, and prescription skin care products. For those not wanting to undergo surgery, skincare products can offer a less invasive solution.

Elite Serum Rx

There are no shortages of eye treatments and face creams on the market. When looking for the best eye serum, Elite Serum Rx is an ideal solution. Containing medical grade peptides, it is specially designed to treat eye puffiness, bags, dark circles, and reduce wrinkles. Please contact us today for more information.

Prevent Crows Feet

Best Ways to Prevent and Treat Crow’s Feet

Category : Skincare

When it comes to crow’s feet, many people have them yet no one wants them. At Elite Serum Rx, we have advice that’s two-fold. First, we’ll tell you how to prevent these laugh lines, next we’ll show you how to treat them if you have them.

How to prevent crow’s feet

Crow’s feet, sometimes known as “character lines,” are inevitable for all of us as we age, but that doesn’t mean we can’t prevent them for as long as possible or reduce their appearance. Here are several proven ways to do just that.

  • Use your sunscreen. We recommend wearing at least SPF 30 every day. Yes, every day! That means summer, of course, but it also includes the dead of winter. Being exposed to the sun causes your skin to age more quickly. Bonus: Not only will sunscreen help protect your skin from aging, but it’ll also help protect you from skin cancer.
  • Invest in UV-protecting sunglasses. This is a chance to double your protection. Any time you’re out in the sun for a prolonged period of time, UV-protecting sunglasses will help prevent sun damage and can further protect against crow’s feet by helping you not squint.
  • Use the right face and eye serum. At Elite Serum Rx, we offer a serum that’s anti-aging, anti-wrinkle, and chock full of peptides that help your skin avoid damage and repair itself from existing damage. We recommend our serum thanks to its hydrating ingredients and proven effectiveness.
  • Massage the muscles around your eyes. Crow’s feet, at their core, are just lines ingrained into your skin because the muscles beneath the skin are being used repeatedly. The eye area is susceptible to wrinkles because those facial muscles are used so frequently. Take five minutes at night to massage these muscles to help them relax.

How to treat crow’s feet

You now have some ideas on how to prevent crow’s feet, but we also want to share with you some ideas on how to treat existing wrinkles.

  • Drink plenty of water. No matter how old or new your wrinkles are, getting plenty of water is the most important thing you can do. Dry, dehydrated skin will sag – which will make your wrinkles look worse.
  • Use a moisturizer. In exactly the same way water can help prevent your wrinkles from showing through, a moisturizer that’s targeted for your delicate eye-area skin can help plump the area and smooth out your wrinkles. Again, hydration is the name of the game!
  • Take a close look at your diet. Ensuring your diet is rich in antioxidants is one way you can promote healthy, youthful-looking skin from the inside out. An egg white mask applied to the skin around your eyes can have a tightening effect too. Just take one egg white, beat it in a bowl, soak it up with a cotton ball or rag, and then use it to coat the skin around your eyes. After 15 minutes, wash it off with gentle soap and water.
  • Use Aloe vera. Natural food enthusiasts will tell you that aloe vera is one of the most trusted ingredients to help treat your crow’s feet. It has antioxidant properties that fight off free radicals and it includes both vitamins and minerals that brighten and tone your skin. Just drink a tablespoon of aloe vera juice twice a day, or grab a fresh leaf, squeeze the gel out, and apply it around your eyes before you go to sleep. When you wake up, wash your face. Do this every day for a few weeks to see firmer, more hydrated skin.

Elite Serum Rx

There are some aspects of aging that just come with the territory but these tips can help prevent or lessen the effects of crow’s feet. The regular use of Elite Serum Rx can treat existing crow’s feet and help prevent new wrinkles from forming. Please contact us today for more information.

The Power of Peptides

What Peptides Can Do for Your Skin

Category : Skincare

Take a trip down the skincare aisle of your local drug store and you’ll be overwhelmed by various products. Add the ones you can find at the makeup counter in your favorite department store, as well as those made by companies with their own retail or mail-order sales, and it can be hard to know exactly which ones to buy.

The choice becomes especially overwhelming when you’re looking for anti-aging products to help you look your best. That’s why you need to focus on buying only anti-aging products with beneficial main ingredients like peptides.

Keep reading to learn more about peptides and how anti-aging products that incorporate them can really improve your skin.

What are Peptides?

If you’re like a lot of people interested in quality skin care products, there’s a good chance you’ve seen the term “peptides” before. Still, most people really don’t know exactly what that word means.

Simply put, a peptide is formed when two amino acids are bonded together to create one substance. More or less, a peptide is a simple type of protein and some products use more than two amino acid types to create a potentially beneficial peptide.

Not every peptide compound is created equal though. Some are used to help people burn fat, while others are commonly recommended to individuals who want to improve athletic performance or build muscle. Obviously these are used in supplement form, not topically.

Different types of peptides are used for skin care purposes, and there are many products out there incorporating them. You’ll find a lot of consumers and dermatologists who recommend them.

How Do They Work?

When you want the absolute best for your skin, you need to be shopping for companies using medical-grade peptides designed to tighten, firm and tone your skin. Without a long biology primer, peptide compounds (which are proteins, remember), can be beneficial in reducing skin damage and repairing some of the natural wrinkles that come with age.

Most products that contain any sort of peptide are designed for topical use. Generally, you’ll use these products once or twice per day just like you would use a moisturizer or any other type of skin care product.

Elite Serum Rx?

There are a lot of products out there containing peptides, but like most skin care products out there, there’s a good chance you’re not really getting everything you’re paying for. When you buy Elite Serum Rx, you get a product made with a concentrated variety of powerful, medical-grade skin care peptides.

Elite Serum Rx also contains haloxyl, argireline, matrixyl, inyline and eyeliss, making it one of the best eye cream products out there. Whether you’re fighting the first signs of aging, or you’re looking to turn back the hands of the clock as far as possible, Elite Serum Rx should be a major part of your daily skincare routine.

Contact Elite Serum Rx to learn more about our skin product and what peptides can do for your skin. By reducing under eye circles and crow’s feet, Elite Serum Rx products can help your eye-area skin look and feel its best.

What’s in YOUR Eye Cream?

Category : Skincare

In today’s multi-billion dollar beauty industry, it’s easy to get overwhelmed by the amount of options on the market. Moisturizers, cleansers, face creams, eye creams – not only are the products seemingly endless, but so are the purposes behind them. Should you choose the anti-wrinkle cream, or the night repair moisturizer? While we can’t answer all your beauty questions, we at Elite Serum Rx can help you find the best eye cream to achieve the results you want.

Why do we need eye cream?

Eye creams are used to target a variety of beauty issues – aging-related or otherwise. The skin around our eyes is thin and delicate, making it extremely prone to dryness, as well as showing fatigue and aging. Common causes for using eye creams include:

  • Dark circles
  • Under eye puffiness
  • Fine lines and wrinkles

A lot of people think “but why can’t I just use a regular face moisturizer?” The answer is that eye creams are specially formulated for that sensitive skin around the eyes. They tend to be thicker than standard facial moisturizers, contain more oil and have a lot more targeted ingredients to combat the conditions mentioned above.

What makes it so effective?

Eye creams should contain anti-oxidants, cell-communicating ingredients and skin repair ingredients that soothe the skin and do not contain fragrances. Depending on the specific type of eye-area problem, you’ll want to choose an eye cream that has specific ingredients designed to address that problem.

For example, anti-aging cream should contain ingredients such as:

  • Hyaluronic acid. The fat cells around the eyes tend to fall first. This ingredient can plump up skin cells by drawing water from the air. It can actually hold up to 1,000 times its weight in water!
  • Retinol or neuropeptides. These are collagen-building ingredients derived from Vitamin A which stimulates cell turnover and collagen production. This makes ether a good choice for combating sun damage and fine lines, although peptides tend to be gentler on the dermis than retinoic acid.
  • Vitamins C and E. Along with Vitamin A, found in retinol, vitamins C and E are powerful tools against anti-aging. Vitamin C stimulates collagen production and elasticity of the skin, while vitamin E soothes the under eye area and protects it from damage.

Elite Serum Rx

You can find eye creams that work for multiple issues at once. Again, the key is to understand the ingredients’ functions to ensure you are using a product with the right formula for your needs. At Elite Serum Rx, we design our serum to target the signs of aging as well as reducing puffiness and dark circles. We use a unique and potent mix of medical-grade peptides which work together to improve your overall facial appearance.

Taking care of your skin, especially the delicate skin around your eyes, is an important part of anyone’s facial routine. Choose products with effective ingredients targeted to your needs, and follow the directions faithfully, to achieve the results that you want to see.

Choosing the Best Foundation for Summer

Category : Uncategorized

Most women try to avoid foundation during the heat of summer because they hate the look and feel of makeup melting on their skin. However, there are times we need to wear makeup and having a comfortable foundation is important.

During the spring and summer our skin is typically at its oiliest. This means that “regular” foundation just won’t cut it. A sweat-proof foundation will help combat the skin’s shine and oil.

Foundation is one of the toughest things to shop for. There are so many shades, formulas and brands… which one is the best? Every face is different, and everyone likes a different look.

There are also some new long-lasting foundations on the market today that will help keep the T-zone with a matte finish and the skin looking soft and luminous all day long, even in the heat of the summer.

Here are five great foundation choices for the heat and humidity of summer:

1)YSL: Yves Saint Laurent has a new “anti-fatigue” formula that helps energize summer skin. It actually stimulates skin’s circulation. It provides great coverage and it gives us bright, luminous skin. The best YSL option for summer is Yves Saint Laurent Touche Éclat Le Teint Radiance Awakening Foundation.

2) NARS: NARS’ “All Day” Luminous Powder Foundation has an SPF of 24, so it is really great for the summer, providing extra sun protection. Most people love the liquid variety but the powder version is very lightweight and is actually waterproof, too, making it the perfect choice for those who sweat a bit.

NARS’ All Day Weightless Luminous Foundation is a good choice for those with combination skin, because it is lightweight and spreads easily. It quickly clings to the skin, providing skin with a radiant matte finish. It has been said that this formula will help to reduce the appearance of skin discolorations over time because it contains scarlet spiderling root extract.

4) Urban Decay: Urban Decay’s Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Makeup is a nice lightweight foundation. Their Naked line feels just like skin, it has no “cakey” feel. It has light-diffusing properties that help blur imperfections of the skin and has a demi-matte finish.

5) Clinique: Clinique is a top seller as most people love their oil-free foundations. Their Stay-Matte Oil-Free Makeup is perfect for anyone who loves a matte finish. It absorbs shine and resists sweat, so it’s wonderful for the summer months!

Elite Serum Rx

It’s also important to remember to wear sunglasses, hats and sunscreen along with your foundation to avoid sunburn and skin damage. To help reduce the appearance of existing lines and wrinkles, try adding Elite Serum Rx to your skin routine. It can help improve skin tone as well.
