Quick Tips to Beat Holiday Bloating!

The holidays are filled with memories, family, and of course lots of comfort food! These times are meant to be enjoyed but dealing with post holiday bloating can be quite uncomfortable. Now that the holiday season has started it seems harder than ever to stick to your normal clean eating routine but here are some quick tips from Fitness RX Women magazine on how to beat the holiday bloat:

food-salad-dinner-eating-1

1.) Reduce Carbohydrates:
When we take in too many carbs our bodies tend to hold on to water adding excess water weight to your body. If you are trying to shed this excess water weight simply reduce your carb intake by 20-30% of your diet for a week or so. This will allow your body to use the extra carbs and shed the water weight.

2.) Cleanse with Green Veggies:
Veggies! Don’t you love em?! Green vegetables like broccoli, kale, and asparagus are full of antioxidants and act like natural diuretics helping to cleanse your system. So when you go to make your post holiday smoothie, throw some veggies in for a nice refreshing detox, your body will thank you!
3.) Stimulate Your Metabolic Rate:
Add some heat to your holidays! Foods such as chili peppers and green tea are great metabolism boosters. Chili peppers contain capsaicin which has been shown to increase metabolic rates and crave appetites. In addition, green tea also increases your metabolism rate for a boost of energy full of antioxidants!

4.) Up The Intensity:
Even though the holiday season might leave you wanting to cuddle up and binge watch your favorite Netflix show, it is important to get back into your regular workout routine. It might feel a little sluggish at first but pick up on your cardio routine and aim for longer more intense sessions.
Utilize these great tips to help beat and holiday bloating and get back to your active self in no time! Also be sure to check out our November newsletter for some healthy alternatives to your favorite holiday meals. This month are highlighting Brussel Sprouts Made Right!

Retinol – Is it Worth All of the Hype?

Retinol- Is it worth all of the hype?

 

We have all heard the hype, and have all probably had someone recommend incorporating  retinol into our daily  skincare routines.  But is this so called fountain of youth serum really worth it? Do retinoids actually reverse, protect, and prevent wrinkles? Yes. Retinol is beyond worth the hype, but there’s a catch.  Most over the counter retinol does not come close to the prescription level dermatologists prescribe.  So, we have all these drugstore counters filled with retinol products, that don’t seem to really be doing the job! I have discussed with our skincare experts here, and have gotten all the info on why we should ignore those products, what products are perfect, and why you need retinol in your life.

 

  1. What is Retinol?

Retinol is the most natural form of Vitamin A.  There are other compounds of retinoids such as: retinoic acid (also known as tretinoin), retinyl palmitate, and retinaldehyde.  All of which are used in skincare products, whether it’s acne products or anti aging products.  It is a holy grail product used by dermatologists and estheticians alike.  Regular use of this stuff can promote, brighter, smoother, and healthier looking skin.

  1. What does retinol do for your skin?

Depending on the compound, retinol can be used to help diminish acne and acne scars.  It can also be used to help minimize the wrinkles, and smooth out skin.  The greatest thing about retinoids, is that helps speed up cell turnover.  Which virtually helps any skin issue!

  1. What’s the difference between Retin-A and Retinol?

So you have probably seen both on skincare labels, but what’s the actual difference? Well, it’s really the way they are formulated.  Retinol is a natural version of Vitamin A and is usually added with other ingredients in other products.  Retin-A is a synthetic form of retinol created by scientists from other ingredients in labs.  The difference on your skin is that Retin-A is much more potent than Retinol, so it depends on the level you need!

  1. What are other uses?  

Retinol works wonders on acne, especially with people who are sensitive to salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide.  It also a perfect fix for hyperpigmentation, since it is great for cell turnover.

  1. Why you SHOULD add retinol into your skincare routine.

It’s never too early or too late to start using retinol! Most dermatologists recommend starting in your mid to late 20’s.  But retinol amazing effects can be seen at any age, and can reverse some serious sun and skin damage!

  1. What are the side effects?

The key with retinoids is to remember less is more! A pea size amount goes a long way.  Because it is a strong product, and can be drying those with overly sensitive skin or symptoms like eczema should use sparingly.  It will not irritate if used less often on those skin types; however, daily use could cause some irritation.

  1. Can you incorporate it gently?

A tip for adding retinol into your routine is to add it before all of your nightly creams and let it dry first.  Extra moisture can actually cause irritation with retinoid products

  1. Can you only wear it at night?

Retinoids are extremely potent, and can even be drying, so having them on during the day is typically not a good idea if you are using Retin-A.  A lot of daily and daytime moisturizers promote retinol as an active ingredient. The catch is there is barely any in these products.  Wearing heavy retinol during the day could cause easier buring from the sun! So try to stick to a night time routine, and always wash your face and wear sunscreen in the morning!

  1. Does retinol replace steps in your skincare routine?  

Because Retinoids promote cell turnover, many people think they can skip the exfoliation.  You still need to exfoliate because it helps to shed the dead skin cells so you can replenish your skin with moisture.  However, doing your exfoliation less often when using retinol is definitely acceptable!

  1. How long, until you see results?

With prescription Retin-A you can see results with skin texture and wrinkles in as little 6 weeks, and 10 weeks with over the counter retinol.  With acne you can see slight results in at least 24 hours, so it really works!

 

Some Products to use!

Although this product uses retinol and not Retin-A it is specially formulated with botanical extracts to give you the strongest and most potent mixture of retinol without being too harsh. SO…that means you get all the effects of prescription grade Retin-A in an all natural formula!!

Paying for Quality

Do  you  shop  for  Botox  and  fillers  by  price?  
Don’t. All too often, we get calls asking how much our Botox is… Although we love that potential clients and current clients are inquiring about Botox, we hate that question… Here’s why:
It’s  much  more  important  to  shop  for  skills  and  expertise  versus  price.
Have  you  been  out  and  about  and  seen  women  whose  face  looks like a deformed Barbie doll?    Maybe  one  eyebrow  is  higher  than  the  other,  or  their  lips  are  so  big
that  they  look  like  someone  blew  them  up,  don’t  scare  your  kids  and  others.
When  I  see  that,  I  feel  sorry  for  them  because  obviously  they  went  to  the  wrong
person  and  the  wrong  med  spa.
So,  what  can  you  do  to  keep  that  from  happening  to  you?
Here  are  some  tips  to  ensure  you  are  in  good  hands:  
1.  Do  your  homework  –  check  out  who  is  the  best.
2.  Research  their  reputation  and  reviews.
3.  Call  them  and  reserve  a  consultation – this gives both you and the injector time to go over your expectations, goals and budget.
4.  Ask:
a.    How  long  they  have  been  performing  injections,  and  to  see  their
credentials.
b.    In  addition,  ask  to  view  before  and  after  pictures.
c.    And,  if  they  are  licensed  professionals.
5.  Do  they  offer  a  follow-­‐‑up  visit  and  provide  before  and  after  pictures  for  you?
The  whole  idea  of  getting  Botox  or  Fillers  is  to  help  you  look  fresh  and  younger-­‐‑
looking  without  appearing  as  if  you  had  any work done. Botox and fillers aren’t meant to create a new appearance, they are meant to enhance your already beautiful appearance. You  don’t  want  to  look  plastic,  fake,  and  frozen. You  don’t  want  your  practitioner  to  overdo  it.

That  is  why,  when  shopping  for  someone  to  administer  your  injections,  don’t  seek
out  the  cheapest  price.  Instead,  find  the  most  skilled  professional  with  the  best
reputation  and  skills.    After  all,  it  is  your  face  we  are  talking  about  not  how
much  you  can  save.
And  remember,  you  want  to  find  an  expert,  a  professional  who  will  give  you  a
healthy,  natural  look  that  does  not  appear  plastic and frozen.
Call now to schedule a consultation with our certified injector today to take the first step to a happy, youthful appearance! (214)730-6300
