Three ways that LED Light Therapy can help you!

There are many factors that may make the skin age. While it is natural that as people grow older, so will their skin, there are also certain things that can speed up that process of aging.

While flowers and trees may benefit from exposure to the sun, the same cannot be true for the skin. Sun exposure is most probably the main culprit of the skin aging. Good thing that with the advancement of technology, there are now many treatments available that can result in younger-looking skin.

One of those treatments is LED light therapy. LED is short for Light Emitting Diode and the process is simple. The LED emits infrared light which is directed into the skin. It was actually originally developed as a way to speed up the process of healing wounds, but along the way, they saw the effects it had on the skin.

Here are just some ways that LED light therapy can bring benefits to you and your skin. Take note that there are different colors in the light spectrum and the effects of the therapy also depend on what color is used on your skin.

1. It helps you achieve younger-looking skin – most people would want to look younger than their actual age and LED light therapy can achieve that. When the red light is used, the skin’s blood circulation is boosted, thereby more nutrients go to your skin. Aside from that, the fibroblasts also produce more collagen and elastin, which results in plumper and firmer skin. It can even reduce some pains in some cases and accelerate the healing process and skin repairing process.

2. It can get rid of acne – the sad truth is that not everyone says goodbye to acne after their teenage years. There are still many adults who suffer from this condition. But with LED light therapy, there is now a pain-free and affordable way to combat it. With the blue light, the bacteria that is found deep in the skin, the ones responsible for acne is destroyed. This happens as the light activates porphyrins, which is produced by p.acnes, the acne-producing bacteria. As porphyrins becomes activated, it in turn destroys the p.acnes bacteria, thereby preventing acne in the skin.

3. It can even out skin discoloration and skin redness – if your skin has discoloration or is pigmented, or you have spider veins or skin redness, LED light therapy can be used to treat all of these conditions. When the green light is used, the production of excess melanin is inhibited and it also breaks up the melanin clusters on your skin’s surface to even out the discoloration.

These are just some of the benefits that one can get if they avail of the LED light therapy. All you have to do now is decide on what type of treatment to get, depending on what your skin needs. Whether you want to get rid of your acne or reduce the wrinkles on your face, then can be achieved through this process. Check out this site that offers treatment through LED light therapy and choose which option works best for you.

Review : Nerium Age-Defying Day & Night creams!

Hey guys,

Nerium International is a US based brand that has developed several products from Nerium Oleander, a plant that is toxic in all parts!. Nerium is probably the most poisonous garden plants. But through years of research, it was found that this plant has super antioxidant / antiaging properties and Nerium International developed their products in such a way that they are highly effective while being completely safe.

Nerium day and night creams

Ofcourse, after learning about it, I was a bit scared to try it out. Lol!. I did a patch test, as a precaution. When all was well, I went ahead and tried out Nerium’s day and night creams. Both products are powered by their proprietary NAE-8 extract, which helps:

● Address both the signs of aging as well as the causes.
● Acts as a powerful antioxidant and works to inhibit free radical damage.
● Boosts the cell renewal process to reveal younger-looking skin &
● Targets the causes of skin-damaging inflammation.

Nerium night cream

The night cream is yellow in color, has a serum like texture and feels mask like on application. It leaves the skin looking dewy. It has a strong smell that I am not really fond of. I can’t really compare it to any other smell, so that I can tell you ‘It smells like such & such thing’. Anyways, thankfully the smell fades after a while. For better absorption, the brand advises to apply it on damp skin. Within minutes of application, you will feel a tightness and a slight warm feeling. In the morning, I just wash my face and follow up with the day cream.

Nerium day cream

The day cream is so different from the night one!. Usually products like these, that complement each other, are visually similar. The day cream though, is white in color, so hydrating that it blends with the skin as soon as it’s applied, has a light weight formula and is non greasy. It has a pleasant scent.

Both these products are par excellence and one of the best product combos that I have ever tried out. The results are really noticeable. I have much more radiant skin and look super youthful. Lol, my cousin asked me how am I growing younger!.

At any given time, I am trying multiple skincare products, being a beauty blogger. However, I always give due time to see the results of every single product. I have used these two creams for about a month now and I swear by it’s effects on my skin. I love it.

The bottles look expensive and pretty. It has a nozzle that can be pressed down to dispense adequate amount of product. The day one is white while the night one is a dark grey color. Each bottle contains 30 ml.

Price : $190 (Approx AED 697.87) for the combo if you want to buy both.

Bonus: Nerium Age Defying Eye Serum review

Two sample sachets, each containing 0.3ml, of Nerium’s Age Defying Eye Serum were included in the pack that I received. The formula is so advanced that it gets to work within 5 mins of application, masking wrinkles and fine lines. One sachet has enough in it for a single application around both eyes.

Nerium eye serum

Since I don’t have enough lines around my eyes to do a ‘Before & After’, I decided to try it on my mom who is 50+. The results were pretty dramatic. Where this serum was applied, it had a blurring effect. You can see it for yourself in these two pix of her left and right eyes. The fine lines all went away.

Nerium before and after

Nerium before and after

The amazing thing is, I tried it on her about 3 weeks back and still there is a noticeable difference. Long term usage of this serum is said to ward off future wrinkles and lines. I think it’s phenomenal!

The serum is white in color, has a runny consistency that’s easily absorbed by the skin. Definitely amazing!.

Price : $80 (Approx AED 293.83) for a 10 ml bottle

Fillerina Launches in UAE!

Have your ‘fine’ expression lines begun to look more like trenches of late? Have you noticed a loss of volume in your cheekbones and a loss of plumpness in your lips? If the answer is a resounding ‘yes’, and you’re looking to stave off these telling signs of aging, we have just the solution you were looking for: Fillerina!

Fillerina A

Part of a new generation of non-invasive, temporary cosmetic solutions, Fillerina is a topical filler treatment that can increase and replenish lips and cheekbones volume, as well as fill your wrinkles and lines –all to make your face look youthful and refreshed.  The results are instant and gratifying.

What’s more, it’s a simple 2-step treatment that you can administer at home, for a duration of 14 days.

Senza titolo-1

Step 1: The Fillerina Gel. Start your treatment with the gel which you can apply by using a precision applicator (fitted with a truncated metal tip), provided in the kit. Make sure to cover the areas where you have deeper wrinkles and expression lines, along with the areas that require greater volume, such as cheekbones and lips.

The Fillerina gel benefits from a proprietary method of filling the cutaneous tissues through a special use of hyaluronic acid, which plays a key role in binding large quantities of water molecules in the skin. The formulation of the Fillerina gel combines 6 different types of conveyed hyaluronic acids, which have individual molecular weight and structure, and, together, deliver a diversified action in the various cutaneous layers, to facilitate the filling in and plumping up of skin tissue.

The active component, Matrifull, acts over time on the skin matrix, promoting the reconstruction of the natural filling substances such as collagen I and III, and fibronectin, for a visible plumping effect.

Step 2: The Nourishing Film. To be applied after the Gel, this is a highly effective blend of optimum hydrating and revitalising ingredients that ensures the skin benefits from maximum comfort and nutrition, all the way through the day and night. It also leaves the skin looking bright and silky to touch. Over the course of 14 days (the duration of one treatment), Fillerina can turn back the clock: it can enhance and restore your facial features, smooths out lines and soften wrinkles. But what you want from a filler treatment is not just filling and plumping. It’s delivering aesthetically pleasing results in a subtle manner, so you can look more youthful in a relaxed, natural way. And that’s precisely what Fillerina delivers! The treatment can be repeated every 3 to 4 months as required.

Fillerina is the result of 5 years of research at Labo Cosprophar Suisse, renowned for its expertise, high standards of clinical safety and ability to bring best-in-class products to the cosmetic industry and consumers. Fillerina is available at leading pharmacies across the UAE from February 2015 and is priced from AED 499.
