The Odd Reason Long Walks Burn SO Much Fat (and make you feel great)


Do Common Skin Care Products Make Your Face or Eyes Itch? Three Ideas That Might Help

Are you someone who has "sensitive" skin?  Especially on your face and eyes? As someone who has been dealing with this, I have 3 specific tips.  Especially for those of us who are moms and/or grandmothers.

1) Anti-aging products in particular are designed for maximum impact.  20% Vitamin C Serum, and strong Retinol formulas.  These work, and are among the most recommended products by dermatologists.  But for many, they irritate the skin for many days after use.  Many people don't like that or want to do that.

This is a common problem.  The solution is to understand that are a lot of new and very effective ingredients out that to help all layers of your skin renew, rebuild and refresh. These ingredients also work together to accomplish the same goals as the harsh serums, but without the unpleasant side effects. 

For example, if you combine lower doses of Vitamins A, C and E, with newer peptides and new plant extracts you can experience zero irritation when you put it on your face. And the results can actually be better, long term.  It's a shift in philosophy. We all want firmer skin that looks shiny and new.  There's a lot out there that can help the most sensitive skin.

Over the years I've done a lot of work on TV. I never had time to "let my face heal".  Now, thanks to zoom and facetime, we are all on TV!!  Lol.

So I've always been looking for interesting tricks and tips. We built Skin Beautiful MD around this idea of sharing what I have learned and making some products that are easy to use and buy. And work. 

==>>Our newest product is a new "Retinol for the most sensitive skin."  The quick science is that it tells the genes in your skin to produce new skin more quickly.  But it does this without the burn and irritation.  It also adds some modern ideas taken from Integrative Medicine. For example, we add CoQ10 which helps to product more ATP and Mitochondria in your cells.  (Helps the skin become shiny and new!)   

The only downside to this modern approach to skin care is that there is a lot to learn.  Even the MD's we work with learn new things from us to use for their patients!   Join our email list for information overload.

2) A diet tip is to find a plan that helps balance out your hormones.  This is a big problem that throws "curveballs" at many of us. As someone who has written a major diet book, the last thing I want to do is debate nutrition or diet.  It's subjective.  Full carnivore diet might work for one person, full plant-based might work for another.  For me, the work of Dr. Joel Fuhrman is something I keep coming back to.  His focus is on micronutrient dense plants, berries and beans.  I usually add a little meat an fish, but for me, this works.  Key words "for me."   But you want to definitely keep the sugar, alcohol etc in check so the hormones don't freak out. 

3) Exercise.  I hate the gym.  I always have, which is why I spent so much time on my diet. (If you want to see my diet book, google me, tons of stuff will show up.)  But as I have gotten older I'm doing 2 things that help the skin. (I'll show you the science that proves this.)  

The first is more walking. I walk at least 3 miles a day.  Walking regulates CORTISOL which is a primary hormone and a stress hormone.  Cortisol is the ENEMY of collagen and elastin. 

Second is more intense exercise.  I don't go to the gym. I turn on my Power Plate. It's a machine that you step on and turn on. It sends out vibrations that activate your muscles 1200 times every 30 seconds.  This intense series of "energy" is so powerful that it forces your muscles and bones to produce new growth hormone, collagen, and helps regulate cortisol to a crazy degree.

I became such a big fan of the Power Plate that I now help run the company as their Chief Commercial Officer.  (look me up on LinkedIN if you want to learn more about my work in this area.) 

A lot of stress busting walking, plus 10 minutes a day on my Power Plate. (this is the one I have at home). Plus my skin care line.  Plus a ton of veggies.  This is my formula, and also my work! 

Questions? please reply to ANY of our emails.  I have so many interesting conversations with people and get inspired each time.  This post about hormones and sensitive skin came from a question from a new customer.

Do you know how good Retinol is, but don't want your face to burn?

Several months ago we sent out a note asking if you would like a "retinol serum that does not burn."  

The answer was an overwhelming yes.  Today we are launching Retinoid RenewX, which provides all the powerful benefits of Retinol but without the common negative side effects.  

Use the TRY code at checkout to save 50% during this pre-order campaign.  

This product is designed for those of you who already love the Skin Beautiful MD line. It is also designed for people who use and love Retinol but don't love the side effects.

It can be used daily, and everywhere on the body.

Skin Beautiful MD takes a modern approach to skin renewal.  There are new active ingredients which renew the skin by "feeding" it powerful nutrients.  This means one no longer needs to aggressively "strip away" the skin with serums that burn or procedures that are costly and invasive.

==>> Retinoids are a group of chemical compounds related to Vitamin A. They are the #1 dermatologist recommend ingredients because of their unique ability to heal, renew, exfoliate the skin. They are highly effective at wrinkle reduction as well.  The problem has been that Retinol has the tendency to burn the skin.  This formula solves that problem in a very unique way.

Retinoid RenewX is a new serum from Skin Beautiful MD that helps to effectively renew the upper layer of the skin without burning. It accomplishes this by using Bakuchiol which is a powerful plant extract that is new to the skin care world.  

We combine this with a light amount of Retinol that is well tolerated.  These two ingredients work very well together. When you combine this serum with our peptide rich creams, you have a "full skin care stack" of ingredients.  Both the upper and lower layers if your skin get addressed.

Bakuchiol also helps repair acne scars.  Learn about the other ingredients here.   Buy Retinol RenewX here.

How To Target Deep Lines Aroud The Eyes (at any age)

Exposure to the sun at a young age helps to speed up the creation of deep lines around the eyes.   They often appear when we smile.  For many, this is the first place that wrinkles appear. 

Our skin ages as we get older. But sun in particular helps to "activate" enzymes that deplete the collagen in your skin.  This is is why the wrinkles appear around the eyes.  The sun has "zapped" them.  The solution is to fight fire with fire.  You want to tell your skin to build more collagen.  

Intense exercise and certain foods will help.  Certain ingredients that are used in in high performing skin care products can also help a great deal.  For example, extract from Orange Peels developed in Spain has been proven to increase the amount of collagen produced in the skin by around 200%.  

Think about collagen as a "battle" between forces designed to break it down and build it up.  Sun, age and diet all work to break it down.  Ingredients like this help to build it up.   These are "peptides" which means they are very tiny proteins.  They absorb into your skin quickly and get to work.  

People in our community have been using this for several years. Read some verified 5 start reviews here.  (Verified means a 3rd party makes sure these reviews are from people who have purchased from our website)

The 4 Things A High Quality Face Cream Must Accomplish

There are 4 main things that a high quality face cream needs to accomplish.  What's interesting is that there are many proven ingredients developed around the world which help accomplish these goals. 

Most people don't know that the ingredients a) exist,  b) have gotten better over the years and c) work together to help create formulas that work. And don't break the bank.

1) Renew the skin. At a high level, you want a face cream to have ingredients which increase the ability of the skin to repair itself. A high quality formula will help boost cell production and ATP production by 40-80 percent.

2) Hydrate and protect the skin.  A good cream will have ingredients which help to rebuild the ability of the skin to stay hydrated.  It is one thing to add moisture to the skin from the outside.  It is another thing entirely to help the skin retain moisture and also be able to transport moisture from deep in the skin up to the top layer.  There are patented ingredients (not Hyaluronic acid) which help to accomplish this.

3) Smooth the skin.  A high quality face cream will also help to smooth the skin very quickly and improve appearance.  There are a series of ingredients (peptides) which work in a similar manner that Botox does.  But these new ingredients do it gently, and without dangerous toxins that can cause permanent nerve damage.

4) Firm the skin.  We all want firmer looking skin, and this is possible using ingredients that have been proven to increase the most important types (plural) of collagen in our skin.  There are ingredients, used in every high quality face cream, which increase collagen production by 80-300% within 15 days of use.  

Our Skin Beautiful MD Night/Day Cream accomplishes each of these 4 goals and is the #2 most re-ordered product by our customers.  Try it, you'll love it!

How To Tighten and Firm Loose Skin

Increasing collagen production is the #1 way to help tighten and firm loose skin anywhere on your body.  Including the face and the neck. 

==>Collagen is a protein, and it makes up around 75% of the weight of your skin, minus water weight.  Increasing collagen production in your is the #1 objective of most board certified dermatologists. (Medical Doctors who focus on the skin)  

==>Collagen is like the frame of a mattress. It gives your skin structure and  increasing collagen production in your skin is one of three things you have to accomplish for firmer, bouncier and healthier looking skin. 

How does one increase collagen production in the body?  It is complicated, but here are three main ways to accomplish this goal.  (A goal that will help your joints feel better and help your skin look better.)

1. Increase protein rich foods.  Diet is a tricky area with so much debate. According to the Harvard School of Public Health,  fish, poultry, meat, eggs and dairy are the best sources of protein to help increase collagen. We all hear "eat plant based" and while we helped create that narrative starting 15 years ago, the data shows that's not the best diet for skin and joint health.

2. Intense forms of exercise.  This is another counter-intuitive subject.  While it is great to walk and get your steps in, in order to increase collagen production in your skin, you have to first increase Natural Growth Hormone production.  

This means sprinting, weight lifting, interval training. The tough part is that as we get older, or even at any age, it is really hard to get the level of intensity needed.  But that is what's needed.  You have to be able to run, lift, sweat and get out of breath. (Our recent work with Power Plate has really helped us focus on this.) 

3. New skin cream ingredients.  We are the biggest advocates of intense exercise and eating nutrient rich foods.  Doing those 2 things will help you live a longer and better life.  If you want a quick "bio-hack shortcut" you'll want to use one of of three new ingredients that have come out of Europe in the last few years. 

The first new ingredient is Orange Stem Cells mixed with Vitamin C serum.  We sell this serum in our online shop.  The science is compelling  and the research was conduced on women in Spain.  Plant stem cells work. You may have heard that only expensive and weird Animal Stem Cells work.   NOT TRUE!   Orange Stem Cells have been shown to increase Collagen production in the skin by around 200% within 14 days of use.  (source)  They also increase Elastin production by around the same amount.  Elastin is what makes your skin "snap back" and have bounce.  It is what makes the skin look younger.  

Sales Pitch Alert!:  Here are some 3rd party-verified reviews about our Citrus Stem Cell Miracle:   

1. I use all the products and have since their inception, so it's hard to say which is doing the most, but I buy the Citrus Stem in three sets to make sure I am NEVER without it! It goes on like silk and has a fresh, refreshing scent and my skin is just lovely since I started with this routine - it even catches me by surprise some days! The sales make it super affordable, too. Seriously, don't you be without it either. You won't be sorry for keeping it in stock. BTW, I'm in my fifties and my skin has never looked better.

2. I am completely blown away. Now on my second bottle of Citrus Stem Cell, the results are INSANE. I've had DEEP creases in my forehead since my early 20s. I'm now almost 40 and literally have thought about getting fillers. I discovered this product almost two months ago and have been SUPER strict on using once if not twice a day. Like others said, a little goes a LONG way. I pat it into my skin after a shower and let it dry. Literally you can FEEL a tightening effect. The deep wrinkles have become so light!!!! I am in love with this product so much! Literally will probably use the rest of my life.  

3. I love this is easy to want to use it twice a day. A little goes a long way; I cover my neck area too. A lovely glow; I will continue with this serum, with thanks; Then, I apply your Day & Night Cream over the top; same areas, including the eyes, and below the eyebrow area too..covering all my bases.

4. I absolutely love the Citrus Stem Cell Miracle! If I were stranded on a desert island and could only have one skin care product, this would be it! This is the first product I use after washing my face. This product is such a wonderful bright citrus scent and it really wakes me up in the morning. It feels like a glass of orange juice for my face. And it rubs in very quickly and easily. I use it morning and evening and it makes my skin feel like silk. Thank you for the Citrus Stem Cell Miracle! It definitely is a miracle!  

5.  Citrus stem cell smells wonderful and works even better! My skin hasn't aged since I've been using daily for a few years. Love it and the eye cream too. Simple, easy regiment that truly works!!!  

6. Of all the products in the Skin Beautiful MD line, the citrus stem cell miracle is a must! When applied around my eyes, I get a tingling sensation and know it’s working on eliminating my crow’s feet! It smells great too!   Learn More Here.
