The best breakfast I ever had

As most of my friends know i really don't like breakfast , i know , i know it's the most important meal of the day, and with the spa being so busy i don't have time to sit down and eat. i mean I can't have food in my mouth and greet people at the same time. On Saturday one of my clients was waiting for her pod session and she was eating something that smelled like a peanut butter sandwich, like the ones our moms used to make. Except she was eating it from a yogart container. i asked her (Daneille) what that was and she said " 6 oz plain greek yogart, a scoop of peanut butter, half of a banana and some berries".

Danielle is a master chef of great low cal, less sugar and carbs recipes that actually taste good. i went out and got the ingrediants and made myself my peanut butter yogart surprise. It was amazing, i couldn't even finish it all so I kept talking spoonfuls throughout the day. that is rare for me. It's high in protien, low fat , low cards, inexpensive and fast to make and tastes amazing !!!!

i highly suggest this and visit the blog often to see new recipes from Danielle !!!!

FIXX

I was complaining to one of my clients about my noticeable turkey neck that was starting to appear. She listened and listened to my complaints day after day until one day she said she had something she wanted me to try knowing it had to be good because i am extremely loyal to my skin care products and rarely change or would be willing to change.

A few days later she brought this small sample bottle of FIXX serum . I wondered to myself hummm FIXX does it really "fix" wrinkles and turkey necks? Is this another of those "MIRACLE" creams that claims we will look 10 yrs younger that we all fall prey to? Will it end up in the lonely storage container of old wrinkle creams gathering dust under my sink , that every so often i dust off  with the dreams that somehow with age the anti aging cream will suddenly perform it's miracle? Only to be disappointed once again and throw it back under the sink!

OK , OK so I gave in one day. I put a little FIXX on my face and of course on my turkey neck. i did it religiously everyday and especially when i was in the Slimline oxygen pod. Little by little my turkey flew the coop and my neck and face really do look better and tighter! Nothing is a miracle but if you want something close to it I suggest trying it. As you all know I don't recommend anything that i have not tried and continue to use.

Here is the info on FIXX and next time your in the spa try it for free. :)

 

 

Primary Benefits of Fixx™ Stem Cell Serum: 

  • Rejuvenates the look of aged skin
  • Helps diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Promotes elasticity and firmness
  • Helps problem areas like crow’s feet, brow lines and sagging neck skin look firmer
  • Contains marine-active ingredients Mitostime and Phyko AI-PF to support a healthy environment for stem cells in skin
  • Helps support collagen production in the skin


Key Ingredients Found in Fixx™ Stem Cell Serum:

Mitostime
Mitostime is a marine stem cell extract of brown algae that helps reactivate the skin’s stem cells to stimulate new skin cell production and aid in the skin’s natural collagen production. Clinical studies have shown that Mitostime can stimulate and improve the function of skin cells that produce collagen to give the skin its structure, strength and elasticity. Mitostime supports skin cell energy production and helps the skin protect itself and recover from environmental damage. The results are a younger, more youthful appearance with clinical evidence supporting a 37 percent increase in collagen synthesis. 

Phyko AI-PF
Phyko AI-PF is a marine-derived sugar that mimics the skin’s natural Epidermal Growth Factor, the process that supports the production of new skin cells. Studies show that it can increase new skin cell production by up to 57 percent and new skin growth by up to 680 percent.

Thiotaine
Thiotaine is an amino acid found in mushrooms and wheat germ. It promotes greater energy (ATP) production and use in skin cells. Due to increased cellular energy levels, the cells are more capable of delivering lipids to the epidermis, thereby creating and retaining a softer skin appearance. Thiotaine also inhibits the release of enzymes, such as elastase, which degrade the supporting structure of the skin leading to the appearance of aging. Thiotaine acts as an antioxidant that protects the cells, especially the mitochondria (energy producing organelles/units in cells) from oxygen radical damage. Additionally, Thiotaine has been shown to inhibit the formation of melanin which can cause skin discoloration and spots.

Derm SRC
Derm SRC is a combination of bamboo silica, pea extract and glucosamine that helps support the production of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid for firmer, more toned-looking skin. Derm SRC can help reduce the appearance of fine lines an wrinkles by as much as 45 percent in four weeks.

 

How Do Red Light Therapy Machines Work?

 

Red Light Therapy is a very gentle, non-invasive procedure, that only treats the needed areas while leaving the surrounding tissues unharmed. Treatment can be performed at home and does not result in downtime whereas more invasive procedures such as IPL or laser resurfacing do. These approaches to skin renewal rely on high-powered coherent light to create heat energy which can result in thermal injury to tissues. LED's signal the body to naturally convert light energy into cell energy without causing undue damage or discomfort.

Specific wavelengths stimulate specific responses in the body. Red wavelengths and certain infrared (non-visible) wavelengths increase cellular activity at the dermal level by targeting underlying hemoglobin. Cellular activity and energy levels fall as we age. With the delivery of the correct wavelengths of LED light, these dermal cells receive a rejuvenating, anti-aging boost from the light energy. This safe, painless, natural healing process converts light energy within skin cells, very similar to the way photosynthesis takes sunlight and turns it into food energy in plants.

The thermal (heat) activity generated by LED's enhances blood circulation, helping bring nutrients and cellular growth factors to the treated areas. Red and infrared light stimulate fibroblast and collagen production to strengthen sagging, wrinkled skin. These favorable cellular and metabolic effects can also remove age spots and dark pigmentation, repair broken capillaries, reduce inflammation, help to refine fine lines and wrinkles and leave your skin soft, smoothed, refreshed and healthy looking. Photofacial therapy also promotes faster healing of inflammatory acne, rosacea and areas of redness, with less post surgical or post trauma scarring.

Red light therapy is safe for all skin types and ages, there is no down time or recovery time and it is quickly becoming known in the cosmetic industry as one of the most effective and non-invasive ways to help rejuvenate and repair the skin.
