Natural products and health supplements for helping to maintain healthy and young-looking skin.
For skin care to be effective, the products used must be nutritive and highly absorbed. The problem with many products on the market today is that they contain a chemical cocktail of ingredients that could be harmful in the long-term.
There are four basic ways to maintain healthy skin. The first is topically with natural creams and lotions (see below). The second is to avoid overexposure to the sun and to polluted city air. The third, because the skin is the body's largest organ of elimination, is to drink plenty of water and eat a clean diet, both of which help reduce the toxins that the body needs to push out through it. And the fourth is to take supplements that supply the deeper layers of our skin with the nutrients necessary to minimize natural deterioration.
If we get these three factors right, we can maintain a youthful-looking appearance.
AlphaGuard® Plus antioxidant complex is superior to most other full-spectrum antioxidant food supplements on the market.
Burning calories is a natural process of oxidation that releases energy in our bodies. However, oxidation can be destructive when it is excessive and uncontrolled, which can happen with stress (physical and mental), poor diet, toxins and environmental pollutants, too much sun, radiation and illness. When this happens, our cells can become damaged by reactive molecules called free radicals and our energy and vitality deteriorates. Long-term, this can lead to premature ageing and degenerative conditions.
Whilst the body produces some of its own antioxidants, the rest must be obtained through the diet, primarily from fruits and vegetables (especially their skins and pips). However, we live in a world where oxidative stress on our bodies is increasing due to rising pollution and stress loads, whilst dietary levels of antioxidants are decreasing, due to poor diets and the fact that our food is often grown in nutrient-depleted soils. The result can be compromised health.
AlphaGuard® Plus is one of the very best all-in-one antioxidant supplements on the market today, combining many of the most effective antioxidant nutrients and complexes, including Vitamin C, Grape Seed Extract, Curcumin Extract, Quercetin, Bilberry Extract, Vitamin E, Alpha lipoic acid, Green tea extract, N-Acetyl cysteine, Zinc, Leutein, Beta-carotene, Lycopene, Zeaxanthin and Selenium. The reason we put such a potent variety of antioxidants into our supplement is that antioxidants work synergistically in the body — their combined benefit far exceeding the benefit we would obtain from taking them separately. And not only that, many of them have their own unique and essential function, so they must all be present for optimum well-being.
This makes AlphaGuard® Plus the ideal food supplement for helping to prevent excessive oxidation in the body.

BeeBetter™ Beeswax Balm has been formulated to improve the texture and the condition of the skin, and to help to heal blemishes.
Beeswax forms the structure of the six-sided honeycomb cells that is used by bees to store the liquid honey. And like honey, it has antibacterial and antifungal properties. With BeeBetter Balm, the wax is melted down and then mixed with Hypericum perforatum flower extract (St. John's wort flower extract known for healing wounds due to its anti-inflammatory nature), virgin olive oil (to soften it and the skin), Vitamin E (for skin healing), Glycerine (for texture) and honey extract (for its antibacterial and skin healing qualities).
The result is a powerful traditional remedy for dry and sensitive skin, and one that is suitable for wounds, burns, bruises, eczema and skin irritations. BeeBetter Balm™ can be used on the body and the face.
Ingredients: Hypericum perforatum flower extract, Virgin olive oil, Beeswax, Tocopheryl Acetate, Tocopherol, Glycerine, Honey extract.
BeeBetter Balm is available in a small 30mL glass jar.

Dermyn Active Serum (Ecolane) for the face — a skin care product developed in Sweden — is so effective at helping to lift and firm tired and sagging skin that it is also known as the "natural face-lift serum".
Traditional anti-ageing skin care works only on the skin surface, without having any effect on actual skin firmness. Either the surface of the skin is cleared using peeling creams or various fruit acids, or it is moisturized with fats, oils and other substances, like glycerin, which bind moisture into the surface. The result is skin that does appear smoother and somewhat younger.
Dermyn Active Serium is different. This patent-pending serum that was recently developed in Sweden has been uniquely formulated so that it is able to not only work on the surface layer of the skin, but also on the deeper collegen and elastin fiber layers, as well as the underlying skin muscle tone. In fact, 8 out of 10 people using it will get visible results within just 45 minutes of application, and these results will be even more impressive with repeated use.
How does it work? Dermyn Active Serum contains a unique phyto-complex called tricutancomplex which is a a combination of extracts from the tropical plant Centella asiatica, the herb Rosemary and the spice Curcumin. The first, Centella asiatica, is known to help with eczema, wound healing and other skin lesions because it can increase collagen connective tissue formation and improve skin strength and flexibility. The second extract is from Curcumin and is a powerful antioxidant to help prevent the free radical damage that leads to premature ageing of the skin. And the third extract, from Rosemary, contains triterpenoid, Ursolic acid and Oleanolic acid, which help collagen production. As well as this tricutancomplex ingredient, Dermyn also contains Dimethyl MEA, an increasingly popular ingredient in anti-aging products due to its firming, lifing and anti-inflammatory benefits, and Polyglycerin 6, a naturally derived moisturizer with extremely good skin penetrability.
As a result of these unique and active ingredients, Dermyn is able to work on all three layers of the skin. It contracts the keratinocytes (cells) on the skin surface (layer 1); it helps to strengthen the collagen and elastine fiber layer in the dermis (layer 2); and it helps to increase facial muscle contraction (layer 3).
Is is the last property of Dermyn Active Serum that makes it able to work so effectively. The tricutancomplex helps to stimulate the formation of Acetylcholine, which raises our natural production of neurotransmitters in the facial muscles, encouraging them to contract and tone up. As facial muscles are fixed to the skin and not to the bones — as muscles are in other parts of the body — the loss of facial muscle tone as we age (due to a natural decrease in neurotransmitter production) is a major factor in sagging skin. By encouraging natural neurotransmitter production, Dermyn Acive Serum helps to tighten the facial muscles, giving it a unique mode of action in helping to lift sagging skin, and giving it the monicker of the "natural face-lift serum".
Directions: Apply Dermyn Active Serum on thoroughly cleanses skin once a day, preferably in the evening. For best effect, apply a thin layer on your face, neck and decolletage. Avoid contact with the eyes. A tingling sensation can be often be experienced directly upon application — this is temporary and indicates that the serum is active.
