Wrinkles and Vitamin C

October 17th, 2013 • Posted by Debra Ford • Permalink

Wrinkles are inevitable, but the rate at which they appear is up to you. Vitamin C is one of the most important vitamins to get into your diet to prevent the formation of new wrinkles, as well as the little things like making sure you take time out to relax and remove stress from your life as much as possible. In the October issue of The American Journal of Not Clinical Nutrition, one of the first studies on Vitamin C and wrinkles found that people who ate plenty of Vitamin C rich foods had fewer wrinkles than those who didn't. Sea Buckthorn berries are just one food from a class of foods that is particularly high in Vitamin C, along with others such as Acai and rosehips. It's been said that the South American Camu Camu berry is the most concentrated source of Vitamin C in the world, however! So as you can see, not only applying Vitamin C to the face is beneficial for wrinkle reduction, you also have to eat it.

What are the benefits of wheat germ oil on the skin?

September 27th, 2013 • Posted by Debra Ford • Permalink

Skincare is important in every woman's life, regardless of her age. But with the endless product lines available, women tend to get caught in the media furor and get confused on what works best for their skin. Natural products can be the best choice for women today, as they are safe and have fewer side effects. Using natural skincare products such as wheat germ oil allows women to retain their youthful skin tone and texture. The oil contains vitamins A, E and D, all three of which are good for the skin. The oil also contains fatty acids and minerals with anti-oxidant and regenerative properties that help keep skin soft and supple. It is great for dry skin because it has lecithin and proteins that help dry and cracked skin feel softer and less irritated. Since wheat germ oil is thick and dark, it is usually mixed with other oils to ensure best results. It helps the circulation of blood and repairs the skin cells damaged by the UV rays from the sun. It also helps with mature skin because it has regenerative properties and has naturally occurring vitamin A and E and vitamins B2, B3, B6 and other minerals, Wheat germ oil helps soften damaged and aging skin. The oil is sometimes available in blends which  helps to reduce dermatitis symptoms and wrinkles.

Our Dr. Grandel facials and products are all based on wheat germ.

January 8, 2013  Are you starting off 2013 again with a diet plan??
Why call it a "diet plan"? Why not call it a life change?  One way to start off the new year is trying one of our Mummy Wraps.

Cleopatra's Mummy Wrap is a firming and toning process that produces results by detoxifying the body. This is not a water loss program, and not a dehydration type of body wrap. The loss is due to toxins being moved from the fat cells into the lymphatic system. You must drink water to flush the toxins from the lymphatic system. The body wrap solution continues to work in the body for three days. On the fourth day, have another body wrap. Most times, the measure prior to the wrap will be even small than after the previous wrap because of the continued water flush. 

  It is a great way to kick start your regimen along with adding more Fruits and Vegetables and Move!!
