Lise Watier Perfexion Introduces Drone Technology into Skincare

Once we have passed our twenties, we usually start to take skincare a little more serious. Then something interesting happens once we have past the hump of our early thirties and have settled into that mid range of the next decade, like yours truly. A slight panic, if you will, wondering if there is something more we could have done earlier on to preserve our once youthful looking skin. If this sounds like you – you’re going to want to continue reading!

Earlier this spring while I was still pregnant, I discovered Canadian beauty brand Lise Watier was set to release a revolutionary line of anti-aging correctors that use cosmetic drones to target problem areas. Drone technology doesn’t sound like something that would be related to skincare in the least but I discovered that these “drones” in the Perfexion line are simply more of a vanguard delivery system for active ingredients. So basically, the products seek out your skin’s problem areas and then releases their active ingredients precisely where you need it; correcting your skin by reducing the appearance of wrinkles, pore size and wretched fine lines, while also bringing back your skin’s natural radiance that may seem to have faded over the years.

Within the new Perfexion line-up you’ll find the four products I’ve been trailing for the last two months. An Anti-Aging Serum Corrector (30ml), Anti-Aging Day Cream Corrector (50ml), Anti-Aging Night Cream Corrector (50ml), Anti-Aging Eye Cream Corrector (15ml). I have had a few skin issues over the last several years, which only worsened with my fluctuating hormones due to a miscarriage and another pregnancy. Not to mention, as I’ve graduated farther into my thirties, fine lines have slowly crept up around the corners of my eyes. Every year that goes by I’ve noticed my pores have gotten larger and my arch nemesis has been dark spots and hyper pigmentation.

So what are my thoughts on skincare’s latest topical technology? To be completely honest, I may not have seen much improvement with the eye cream (perhaps I wasn’t patient enough), but I quickly became obsessed with the serum, day and night cream corrector after using them for only two weeks. I would apply the powerful serum twice daily that contains caviar lime extract, a gentle AHA that improves cell renewal and sea buckthorn, a natural anti-oxidant that nourishes the skin, immediately after cleansing. I would then follow with either the day or night cream. Why the super fast results? Ingredients like Kakadu Plum Extract; the world’s richest source of Vitamin C said to boost your skin’s natural luminosity and p-Refinyl®; a lentil extract to tighten pores and refine skin texture, are the keys to a more even and smoother skin texture. I was skeptical at first but not only has my pore size reduced but the dark marks I’ve had for ages on my left cheek from picking blemishes has faded significantly over the last six weeks. A beauty blogger I am clearly not, or else I would have had sufficient “before and after” photo documentation to prove my claims, but believe me when I say I have become more confident with the way my skin looks sans makeup and concealer. Suffice to say, these products will remain as mainstays in my beauty regimen moving forward.

Natural Anti-Aging Secrets You Should Know From Naturopathic Doctors Tamarah and Mardi

Natural Anti-Aging Secrets

As Naturopathic Doctors and face care fanatics, we are always asked about our favourite natural anti-aging secrets. In our youth obsessed culture, we are constantly bombarded with the newest anti-aging product or procedure, which can often be overwhelming and expensive. Although aging is inevitable, there are cost-effective, easy and natural ways to help you look and feel your best. Here are our top 5 tips for that youthful glow:

1) Catch of the Day: Research shows that fish oil is one of the best natural anti-inflammatories and can play a critical role in skin health. A prolonged state of inflammation, which can be caused by such things as stress, poor diet, chronic disease, alcohol and smoking, can damage the elastin fibers that determine the skin’s strength and firmness. This damage ages you by creating loose, sagging skin and wrinkles. Whether consumed fresh or in supplement form, we believe fish oil is a non-negotiable when it comes to anti-aging.

2) The Foundation of Youth: We’ve all heard it before – drink your 8 glasses of water per day.  Here is one reason why. Skin lines and wrinkles appear deeper when a person is dehydrated. Water hydrates and plumps the skin cells making them look more youthful. It also distributes oxygen to the cells, improves circulation and removes impurities. We like to think of water as a natural, internal moisturizer so start sipping today!

3) Lift and Tighten: Exercise has much deeper benefits that just an improved physique. The blood flowing effects of exercise benefit the skin by promoting collagen growth. On a more cellular level, working out seems to counteract the effects of stress and cellular aging. Science shows that those who work out actually have more youthful cells. We suggest you hit the gym at least three times per week for benefits from the inside out.

4) Go Green: Ever wonder what causes wrinkles? Free radicals are harmful molecules that cause damage to the cells of your skin. You can’t feel when cells are damaged or dying but those wrinkles are a sure sign that it is happening. The antioxidants in colourful vegetables and fruits, such as leafy greens, deep red tomatoes, blue berries and carrots, help stop free radicals from damaging healthy cells. So at each meal, we want you to fill about half your plate with fruits and veggies and aim for five to nine servings a day.

5) Looking for a Natural Quick Fix?: Mesotherapy is an amazing service we offer for those clients who want a more immediate result. Different combinations of vitamins and minerals are injected into the skin to hydrate, tone, and revitalize. After treatments our clients report their skin as looking rested, radiant, glowing and firmer. This non-invasive technique can be used for face and neck revitalization, wrinkles, acne, scars, flaccid skin, and stretch marks. Consider this treatment as a direct way to feed your face and promote that youthful glow.
