Pregnancy Glow

Published by:

Congratulations! You are pregnant!!

Whether it’s your first pregnancy or not, you have an idea of what to expect. You know all about the nausea, fatigue and swelling. You might even be experiencing each one of those symptoms already.

So, when people tell you that you have that pregnancy glow, you have a hard time believing them. It’s just BS, right?

Well, not exactly.

“The pregnancy glow is one of the skin changes that is caused by the increase of hormones during pregnancy. If you are experiencing it, count yourself blessed and enjoy it.” [1]

What Is The Pregnancy Glow?

When you are pregnant your body produces 50% more blood, resulting in more blood circulation through your body.  This increase in blood circulation causes your face to be brighter. [1]

It’s like your skin is naturally producing a look that many women try to achieve with highlighter and brighteners.

time) don’t look so bad.” 
Janet 

“My hair and my nails are fabulous and everyone says I’m glowing.” Felicity [2]

Hormones And Pregnancy Glow.

Your blood volume increases, and so does your production of the hormone human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG). These changes in your physiology work together to create the pregnancy glow. Greater blood volume brings more blood to vessels, resulting in skin that looks slightly flushed and plump. The hormones HCG and progesterone, which cause the skin glands on the face to secrete more oil, also help make skin look smoother and slightly shinier. [3]

Pregnancy sorted out my acne! I’d had very bad skin for over 15 years (since I was 11). I’d tried EVERYTHING to get rid of it and been to numerous dermatologists. When I became pregnant the spots got worse in the first trimester, then gradually started to fade away. Now my son is 14 months old and my skin has stayed completely clear! You can’t imagine how that feels after all this time.” Tess [2]

Can You Keep The Glow Long After Pregnancy?

When glow-giving pregnancy hormones disappear, your face can suddenly look like you’ve spent a weekend partying.

Most people experience dull, sallow skin when they have a young baby, due to stress and tiredness,” says Debbie Thomas, Advanced Skincare Therapist. [4]

Introduce exfoliation to your skin care routine. It will remove dead skin cells. You could also replace your morning cleanser with a gentle daily scrub. End your routine by appling a soft moisturizer that will leave your skin perfectly hydrated or look for an eye product containing antioxidants and vitamin C to protect the collagen in your skin. [5]

If you’re breastfeeding, drink at least 64 oz of water per day.

Dive Deep Into The Healing Properties Of Seawater.

Published by:

It’s this time of the year again… You’re looking into what to do and where to go this summer.

If you’re covered in snow right now, I bet a beach vacation seems idyllic. But did you know that seawater has multiple health benefits?

Let’s dive in together…

Early Interests

SeaWater2Sea bathing and seawater became fashionable healing treatment in the early XVIIIth Century in Europe. In 175o, Dr Charles Russel recommended Thalassotherapy to heal several diseases. He then founded the first bathing resort in Brighton, England.

But these could be considered old news as Hippocrates was already talking about “thalassotherapy” in 400 B.C.! This word comes from the Greek “thalassa”, meaning water, and “therapia”, meaning to cure. Known also as the father of modern medicine, Hippocrates was the first to use seawater for healing purposes.

For the past couple centuries, multiple scientists studied the healing benefits of seawater, proving that it has nearly all the essential elements. Its major constituents—magnesium, sodium, potassium, and calcium— as well as the living microorganisms present in seawater—producing beneficial antibiotic, antimicrobial and antibacterial substances—get absorbed through your skin, making seawater the perfect natural healer.

Heal Your Skin

  • Swimming in the ocean can repair your skin barrier and speed up its healing process. [1]
  • Thanks to its huge salt concentration—3.5% sodium chloride—seawater also acts as a natural exfoliation, leaving your skin soft and hydrated.
  • And—last but certainly not least—, the constituents of seawater are the perfect natural antiseptics. They will reduce inflammation and heal irritation. [2]

Boost Your Immunity

“The components of seawater, similar to human blood plasma, are easily absorbed and utilized by your body while swimming. Inhaling a sea mist filled with negatively charged ions, or molecules that attach to your lungs also boosts your immune system,” according to naturopathic doctor Connie Hernandez. “In addition, proponents claim that swimming in seawater opens pores in the skin to allow the absorption of sea minerals and the expulsion of disease-causing toxins from the body.” [3]

Seawater has the ability to relieve cold and flu symptoms, as well as to cure bronchitis and sinusitis. Inhaling sodium chloride, or salt from seawater, helps loosen mucus and treat pulmonary problems. [4]

Heal Your Mind

As you now know, seawater has a high concentration in magnesium and has been proven to have calming properties—by stabilizing the serotonin, melatonin and tryptamin levels in your brain—, and therefore reduce stress, relax your muscles and help you sleep.

“Magnesium depresses nerves to relieve nervous irritability for an increased sense of calmness”, according to wellness pioneer and author J.I. Rondale. [5]

But if ever you feel too lazy to swim, no worries. Pick up your towel and go lie down on the beach for a while—after a full body massage with a high IPF sunscreen of course. The heat of the sun will boost your endocrine system—the natural chemicals in our body designed to make you feel relaxed and less stressed effortlessly. [6]
Vacation is relaxing by definition. But, when you think of it, wouldn’t it be perfect it could cure some of your health issues at the same time? You’d come back well rested, tanned and healthy. Ready for the marathon of life. And, if you wanna dive even deeper into healing your body and your mind, you could try swimming with dolphins… [7]

Revive Your Natural Beauty With Cryotin

Published by:

Long story short, my husband’s been working longer hours for the past few years, when I’m home with our kids every night, helping with the homework, fixing them dinner,… The evening routine is a lot like running a marathon when you have teens. I’m sure you can relate…

Anyway, I felt that my hubby and I had been missing each other so, on a day off, I decided to surprise him at work with a homemade lunch. I cooked all morning preparing his favorite recipe –his mom’s acclaimed beef stew. While it was on the stove, I chose my clothes and groomed myself a little bit more than any other day –I usually don’t wear make-up but it was a special day for us. I just realized I forgot to tell you it was our 20th anniversary!

Once I was all cleaned up, I took my ready-to-eat beef stew and left for his office, feeling pretty and happy.

When I arrived there, he was out for a lunch meeting I didn’t know about. I was disappointed for sure, but that’s what happens with surprises, right? So I decided to take a look around, I hadn’t been there in so long I had forgotten about the surroundings. Or the people.

And that’s when it hit me.

Everybody there was younger and prettier than me! My husband was working every day with models, young and beautiful, while I was waiting for him at home, overwhelmed, aging and alone. No wonder he was coming home increasingly late.

I had to do something about it if I wanted to save my marriage!

That’s why I started looking for the best anti-aging treatment I could find. I wasn’t ready for surgery so I explored the best non-invasive alternatives. And I found Cryotin.

What is Cryotin?

Cryotin is a Full Spectrum Eye Cream. Doesn’t tell you much more, does it?

Well, let’s dig deeper…

You may already know that the skin around your eyelids –called periorbital skin– is about 0.5 mm thick compared to being around 2 mm thick on the rest of your body. As we get older, we lose some of the fat and collagen around our eyes. This loss, combined with the thinning of our skin, magnifies the dark eye circles and lays the perfect ground for crow’s feet to appear.

After years of research and clinical trials, Skin Research Institute and its skin specialists discovered that the skin cell aging could be dramatically slowed down –maybe even reversed– by boosting our natural skin regeneration. Following that theory, they concluded that improving collagen and elastin chains could revert back to young and healthy skin.

A team of dedicated scientists traveled the world to find the perfect ingredients that, once combined, would harmonize to fight the appearance of wrinkles and dark eye circles, towards repairing your skin and helping it stay fresh and young.

Key Benefits

With a combination of rare ingredients, antioxidants and deep moisturizers, Cryotin is the perfect choice for anyone —women and men— who would want to get a younger and brighter gaze without invasive treatment.

This product is infused with a ton of benefits. To name a few, the Acetyle Tetrapeptide-5 will fight puffy eye bags, Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E) will improve your skin barrier function,Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter) will revitalize and repair your skin and Pseudoalteromonas Ferment Extract (Antarcticine) will freeze aging in its tracks.

I invite you to take a look at cryotin.com/formula.html for a fuller understanding of the ingredients and their actions.

Features

  • Combines the best ingredients to fight the appearance of wrinkles and dark eye circles –Vitamin E, Shea Butter, Antarcticine, etc–, all working in harmony to repair your skin and help it stay fresh and young.
  • Scientific Formula developed in American labs, following the FDA guidelines —every step of the development process is done on the US ground, with non-GMO ingredients. Cryotin is then tested by 3rd-party labs, whose job is to find its failures, if any. So when SRI tells you they use quality products, they do use quality products. And scientists. And everything else. And no harsh chemicals ever. They’re also renowned to be cruelty-free —which was really important to me.
  • 60-Day Satisfaction Guarantee, meaning that they would give you your money back if you were not completely satisfied. Just by curiosity, I called to see if it was true. They didn’t ask any questions, just told me the return process. I sent my empty bottles back after 55 days and, a week or so later, I got the reimbursement, minus postage —which was free because I had bought 2 bottles.

Final Say

I started using Cryotin to keep my husband, thinking he was on his way out. I discovered a product so good that I now feel pretty and attractive again, no matter what my husband thinks. And it works wonder because he started coming back home earlier. We’ve had family dinners almost every evening last week, sharing our days, smiling and laughing. Because I am more confident, I try less, and I receive more.

I am aware that an eye cream –even if it’s Cryotin, Full Spectrum Eye Cream—doesn’t do miracles and doesn’t save marriages. Being confident and feeling pretty on the other hand…

Cryotin was the best purchase I did in years. I just wished they did auto-renewal, so I would receive it every month without a glitch. Thinking ahead of time is a small price to pay for all the benefits you will gain, though.

I love Cryotin and I’m pretty sure you’ll love it, too.
