Fekkai - Coiff Ironless Straightening Balm

This is the most unbelievable product.  My friend susan has very temperamental hair.  It's long, fine and extremely wavy, but in random spots on her head.  Athough she has ventured into the world of flat ironing, she says that the Coiff Ironless Straightening Balm has truly provided an option to straightening.  She says that when she applies this product to wet hair it is a breeze to blow hair out straiht and it is light so it doesn't weigh down her hair.

Dr.Brandt's Collagen Booster

Are you looking for a product that actually strengthens your collagen fibers, which would in turn increase your skin’s resilience and elasticity over time??  Well I have the product for you…..Dr. Brandt’s Collagen Booster .  It is a revolutionary concentrated serum infused with a customized blend of key amio acids to boost, preserve, stimulate, and maximize collagen levels for younger looking skin.   This product is formulated to minimize the breakdown as well as it helps to retain collagen by counteracting the effects of skin scavengers, including free radicals, sugar and MMPs, while stimulating the skin to continually produce its own collagen.    MMPs or matrix metalloproteinase are naturally occurring enzymes that keep collagen and elastin from accumulating and becoming blemishes but at the same time they can also destroy the skin’s support structure leading to sagging and wrinkles.  As we age collagen production declines and collagen destroying MMP enzymes increase, causing the breakdown of skin’s underlying reinforcement. 

You can use this serum day and night underneath your moisturizer to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles over time because your skin will be firmer and less saggy……it will plump you up!!!!  Dr. Brandt’s Collagen Booster will also increase the elasticity of your skin, which will prevent future wrinkles from forming as quickly.  With such promising ingredients as well as clinical studies that have had many positive results, I definitely recommend this for anyone who wants to diminish or prevent fine lines and wrinkles.

MD Skincare Hydra-Pure Oil Free Moisturizer

 Now that we are stepping into spring, we need to set aside our heavy duty moisturizer that we needed for the dry months of winter, but we don’t need now.

MD Skincare Hydra-Pure Oil Free Moisturizer is a perfect option for a light-weight moisturizer!  This product contains a special complex called “chelating complex” which detoxifies harmful impurities left on your skin by tap water and also increases the penetration of active ingredients.  Heavy metals which come into contact with your skin from our water, such as iron, copper, magnesium, lead and zinc are neutralized and pulled off the surface of your skin through this moisturizer. So by using this moisturizer, you are reducing any potential irritation and dryness caused by invisible metals in our water.

This is the perfect moisturizer for even the most sensitive skin.  And believe me as the years go by of all those heavy metals coming into contact with your skin, they will take a toll on you, and unfortunately not only are heavy metals toxic for your over all health, but they will also make you age quicker.  So ladies and gentlemen this one’s for both of you!!!
