Chemical Peels: Radiant Skin, Reborn from the Ashes
Check out our guide to understand how chemical peels can help expose beautiful skin lying just below the surface.

When you’re choosing an exfoliation method for the face, a soft brush seems like no match for a scrub of coarse crystals. But just as a mural can improve a brick wall better than a sledgehammer, the brush quite often does a better job of revitalizing the skin, which is why it’s the main tool used in a chemical peel. During such treatments, medical esthetician load a brush’s bristles with an acidic gel and apply it to the skin, at which point the caustic acids quickly, but controllably, damage the surface. The process immediately spurs the immune system to repair the wound by releasing cytokines and producing extra collagen, which reorganizes the skin’s structure and results in a brighter, smoother, and more even complexion.

Chemical peels come in a variety of strengths, using different acid blends to achieve different degrees of facial resurfacing. Naturally occurring acids, such as lactic and fruit acids, rarely penetrate the skin’s surface, making them well suited to tackling superficial lines or blemishes, whereas deeper wrinkles and scars may warrant the use of the more deeply penetrating carbolic acid. Either way, peels have become much more sophisticated since ancient Egypt, when nobles regularly applied sour milk—rich in lactic acid—to their skin, or the Middle Ages, when the tartaric acid in old wine made for more radiant faces and shinier helmets.

Rodan + Fields New Anti-Aging Eye Products – Anti-Aging – Skin Care – DailyBeauty – The Beauty Authority

Super popular beauty brand Rodan + Fields recently held its annual conference, and in addition to a whole lot of reps and devoted fans celebrating the fact that it is the “number-one skin care brand in the U.S.,” the company also announced three new product launches, slated for this winter.

The big one (the embargo on the info was just lifted today!) is the scientist-backed Active Hydration Bright Eye Complex ($70), a lightweight under-eye gel-cream hybrid treatment that counts ingredients like hyaluronic acid, caffeine and glycerin in its lineup. It works over time and really helps with hydration, but it also has the ability to immediately brighten, decrease puffiness and make everything look all-around better. 

Also in the mix is the AMP MD System, which includes a new take on the brand’s dermaroller, the AMP MD Micro-Exfoliating Roller ($220, but sold as part of the system), as well as a REDEFINE Intensive Renewing Serum ($99), an anti-aging avenger that contains a form of retinal—not a typo, this one is a revised version of standard retinol that claims to be 20 times more potent than standard retinol with less irritation. (Read: less redness and more tolerance for even the most sensitive skin types.) The product powerhouse promises to help correct visible signs of aging, firm skin and minimize wrinkles, while having the side advantage of sinking into skin pretty quickly.

Celebrity Skin Care Treatments – Anti-Aging – Skin Care – DailyBeauty – The Beauty Authority

Celebrity makeup artist Kimara Ahnert is known as being the go-to New York wedding makeup guru, showing up frequently behind the scenes to work her magic for the most buzzed-about nuptials. Her clients have included the likes of Gwyneth Paltrow, Cameron Diaz, Anne Hathaway, Catherine Zeta-Jones, and Amanda Peet, and, even if you aren’t part of the Hollywood crowd or have bridal on the brain, her Upper East Side studio is a non-pretentious place for anyone looking for good skin and “you-but-better” makeup.

One thing she’s big on for creating a flawless face (hint: it’s not foundation): A healthy-looking complexion where brightness and volume play the two biggest roles. “Most people think fullness and vitality are only available to those who can afford injectables, but that’s not the case. Many of my clients and celebrities who walk the red carpet make good skin care products and skin care treatments part of their regular routines. We’ve even seen celebrity clients at my skin care studio who put specific skin care treatments into their contracts, with the studios or TV shows footing the bill while filming.”

Ahnert stands by the fact that it’s not completely impossible for the non-Hollywood sect to get similar treatments and results—minus a movie deal. “Women can get oxygen facials, microcurrent lifting treatments and hydrofacials to deliver these healthy glows and stimulate circulation, increase collagen and replenish hyaluronic acid.”

Radiant skin is also a prerequisite for the runway, as Marius Morariu, co-founder and president of Tracie Martyn (clients include Kim Kardashian, Dakota Johnson, Yolanda Hadid and Bella Thorne), points out and says there is a sort of “unspoken rule” where, in addition to production companies paying for actors and actresses to achieve good-skin goals, agencies often do the same for models.

“Our Red Carpet Facial [a mix of microcurrent and LED lights] has been known to be a pre-runway, pre-photoshoot, pre-movie-premiere/award show and pre-filming requirement.”

Of course, these skin-perfecting efforts naturally extend into plastic surgeon and dermatologist offices. The Beverly Hills, CA, offices of plastic surgeons Andrew Ordon, MD, and Ritu Chopra, MD, treat a lot of A-list celebs—with hydrating facials and brightening peels that help address, fine lines, sun damage and give skin the ultimate glow making up the most popular musts. Not surprisingly, stars also “love to stay on top of Botox Cosmetic, fillers and Thermage, which helps stimulate collagen and tighten the skin. Cryotherapy has been a really big hit also lately.”

As for the contractual treatment that is requested most often? Beverly Hills, CA, dermatologist Rhonda Rand, MD, says that, in her opinion, it is Clear + Brilliant laser. 

“It makes skin glow and there’s not downtime. It’s everyone’s favorite!”

How To Live Longer: 10 Simple Anti-Aging Tips

By Dr. Keoni Teta

Are there really things that we can do to increase the amount of time that we have here on the planet? Can we do it in such a way that also maintains a high quality of life? Can we actually slow down aging now? Will we in the very near future be able to stop or reverse the aging process? Many scientists believe the answer to all of these questions is yes.

One of my favorite authors, Ray Kurzweil, has written best-selling books that answers all these questions with a resounding yes. The basic premise of one my favorite books by him, The Singularity is Near, is that technology is accelerating at such a fast pace that within only a few decades, aging will be a thing of the past. This is pretty bold statement to say the least; however, when looking at the strides in research in nanotechnology, genetics, lifestyle medicine, conventional medicine, etcetera, one has to at least come to the conclusion that we do, at this time, have some control over how fast we age.

What we know today is that aging is primarily a result excessive free radical damage our body. Free radicals are atoms, molecules, or ions with unpaired electrons that are highly reactive; meaning they can bind to molecules in your body thus inactivating them which overtime leads to chronic inflammation. All chronic diseases are basically just exaggerations of excessive free radical accumulation or inflammation. So the accumulation of free radical damage over time leads to aging. This aging or breakdown is analogous to parts of a car wearing out over time and needing to be replaced.

In a healthy person, the amount of free radical accumulation tends to be balanced by the amount of antioxidants in the body. At this point in the history of our species, the free radical accumulation eventually wins out, and hence we age and die. If what Ray Kurzweil, and many other scientists are saying is true, “that aging will be a thing of the past in the near future,” then the question becomes, what can we do now to slow down the aging process? Or to put it another way for my more pessimistic peers, “What can we do now to at least improve the health of our body?”

You see, in my mind, improving your health and slowing down aging are basically one in the same.

So based on the most up-to-date research, the following 10 tips are easy-to-do strategies that the average person can incorporate into their every day life to improve their health, slow down the aging process and significantly increase their chances of a long and healthy life.

1) Breathe Clean Air

This is obvious because the most important nutrient that body requires is oxygen. What many people do not realize is that indoor air tends to be highly contaminated relative to outdoor air. Everyone interested in anti-aging should get out doors and enjoy the fresh air as much as they can everyday. Also, for those who can afford it consider getting an air purifier for your living space and/or workspace. Another option is keeping plenty of plants in your living and working spaces.

2) Drink Water

Water is the second most important nutrient for the body. Without it we would die in few days. Yes, drinking water from a pure source like an uncontaminated spring is the best kind to drink; however, finding and having access to water like this is almost impossible these days. Drinking filtered water is the next best option, but there is a small cost attached to it. I always tell my clients that tap water relative to soda or sweetened drinks is almost always the better option. The important thing to remember here is, man-made sweetened drinks at best do nothing for your body and at worst quicken your age.

3) Eat your Vegetables

Vegetables contain an abundance of anti-aging molecules in them called phytonutrients; and furthermore, contain lots of fiber relative to sugar. There is not a food out there that has a better fiber to sugar ratio when compare to vegetables or herbs. The phytonutrients, fiber and low sugar content are powerful weapons against free radicals. Every time a different phytonutrient in vegetables is studied by science their anti-aging effects on the body become apparent. The high fiber/sugar ratio supports gut health, which translates directly to total body health.

4) Eat a Variety of Culinary Herbs

Similar to vegetables, culinary herbs have extremely potent plant chemicals in them that slow down aging. Unlike vegetables, only small amount of herbs (i.e. ginger, cocoa, pepper, turmeric, etcetera) go a long to helping your body slow down the aging process. Did you know that cinnamon is one the most powerful anti-oxidants known to science? You do not need a lot to give you the anti-aging benefit. The take home message here is use them whenever possible and use a wide variety. If you like to cook do yourself and your family an anti-aging favor and use many different kinds of herbs.

5) Eat your Protein

This is your body’s most important macronutrient. Almost every single biochemical process in your body requires protein. Furthermore, protein has to be replaced in the body everyday, unlike the other macronutrients fat and carbohydrates. In our bodies there are enzymes (proteins) that assist in neutralizing the daily free radical barrage we are subjected to. These enzymes are our body’s most important antioxidants.

6) Minimize Sugar Consumption

Many people consider this tip to be the most important one for anti-aging. Yes it is true that we need small amounts of carbohydrate (sugar) for good health; however, the amount of sugar the average person gets far exceeds this. A good rule of thumb for slowing the aging process is to avoid or minimize processed food and you will minimize your sugar consumption. Just eat real or whole food. The more processed a food is the more sugar it likely has in it.

7) Avoid the Consumption of Synthetic Man-made Products when Possible

Any substance that does not speak the same language as our DNA probably will accelerate aging if consumed long enough. In other words, it is unlikely for any synthetic substance that we consume long enough to interact with our bodies in a holistic beneficial way.

8] Exercise or Move

Life is defined as movement. If you want to live a long and healthy life you have to move everyday. Our ancient ancestors never had any concept of what exercise is because they did not live in a sedentary world. Today to maintain health and to slow the aging process down everyone needs to exercise or at the least be physically active everyday. Count yourself lucky if you have a job that keeps you on your feet all day.

9) Getting Plenty Sleep

This is the prime time when our bodies repair themselves. Without sleep we create copious amounts of free radicals. The old adage, “Get Your Beauty Sleep” is as true today if not more so as it was for our ancestors. In fact, people today on average are sleeping less than people only 50 years ago. You have to sleep to slow down how fast you age.

10) Spend time with Family or Loved Ones (Maintain and Nurture Social Connections)

Another book to read about longevity is called Blue Zones by Dan Buettner. This book tells us about areas in the world where people are living well past the average US life expectancy. There is one common thread to all these areas that peaked my interest; and that is how social connections that are nurtured and maintained appear to influence life extension and quality of life.

Cortisone Product to Soothe Retinol Side Effects – Anti-Aging – Skin Care – DailyBeauty – The Beauty Authority

Retinol and retinoids can do wonders for the skin, which is why so many dermatologists and plastic surgeons prescribe them as part of a well-rounded anti-aging plan. But for as much good as they do, there’s no denying the fact that the vitamin A–derived ingredient can cause redness, dryness and even an initial onset of acne—all common side effects of the ingredient.

According to a new study in Dermatology Times, pairing tretinoin (the prescription-strength version of retinol) with a topical corticosteroid could help to alleviate negative side effects of using a retinoid and does not appear to hinder retinoid’s effectiveness at combatting acne and breakouts. “The use of cortisone creams to treat inflammation caused by retinoids is a topic that comes up a lot. If you talk to any dermatologist it’s a no-no to use it long term, but during the adjustment period, when your skin is getting used to the ingredient, it’s fine,” says San Francisco dermatologist Vic Narurkar, MD.

For the most part, most retinoid users can tolerate the ingredient once they get over the initial hump of introducing the ingredient into their skin care routine. But for those who experience persistent redness, inflammation, dryness and breakouts, the pairing of a corticosteroid with a retinoid helps to alleviate those symptoms and doesn’t compromise effectiveness in the least bit.

“There is some controversy when it comes to retinoids because we used to think that it was necessary to have that initial irritation to create cell turnover, signaling that the product was working,” says Dr. Narurkar. “Today, there are plenty of nonirritating retinols and retinoids available that have an effect on the dermal level of the skin as opposed to the epidermis so that creation of inflammation isn’t really all that necessary.”

“This study is interesting because it validates something that I, as well as many other doctors, do in my practice. While it’s not recommended as part of a long-term skin care routine to use a cortisone product, for some patients that need a stronger retinoid, like Tazorac (for acne patients), the use of pairing it with a topical cortisone can reduce that inflammation until the skin becomes accustomed to the retinoid,” says Dr. Narurkar. “However, you never want to use hydrocortisone long-term on the entire face, which can thin the skin, cause broken capillaries and even make the skin rebound after you stop using it and experience a huge flare-up of acne.”

25-year-old Cara Delevingne named face of Dior’s new anti-aging line and people are not happy

25-year-old actress and model Cara Delevingne was named the face of Dior's new anti-aging line, which caused a controversy

25-year-old actress and model Cara Delevingne was named the face of Dior’s new anti-aging line, which caused a controversy  (Reuters)

There’s already a stigma around aging in society, especially for women, so when Dior named 25-year-old model and actress Cara Delevingne as the face of their new anti-aging skincare line, people were not happy about it.

The brand made the announcement on social media last week, featuring a photo of wrinkle-free Delevingne, who will represent their Capture Youth line of products.  According to the description online, Capture Youth is “a skincare range that corrects all visible signs of aging to reveal a radiant youthful beauty.”

The house of Dior is delighted to announce that @caradelevingne, revolutionary top model, committed woman and rising actress, is now the face of the skincare line “Capture”. #diorforyouth

A post shared by Dior Official (@dior) on

As W notes, Delevingne is significantly younger than the target audience of Dior’s past anti-aging lines, which were geared toward 40 to 50-year-olds. And even though the line is reportedly aimed at those who don’t currently have any anti-aging beauty routines, the announcement of a 25-year-old brand ambassador didn’t sit well with many.

Beautiful Cara is 25. I’m 51 and I’m your target audience for Capture. It’s a wrinkle cream. This is unfair to her, and to me! #thatsnotme

— Wordbird (@Wordbird) October 29, 2017

Good choice! She is so old and wrinkled!!

— Charles M.M. (@chmoma) October 24, 2017

She is beautiful BUT I am 65 and would not look twice at a product with that face on it. I feel disrespected.

— Lynn Keyes (@lmbk007) October 31, 2017

As a 51 year old, I find the use of a 25 year old model to be slightly insensitive. Are we hopeless after 26? I’ll have to re-evaluate Dior

— Wendy Stout (@lrelibrarian) October 31, 2017

Having a 25 year old as the face of an anti-aging line is ridiculous. Is it so much to ask that someone over 40, or even 30, be the face?

— Christina SB (@ChristinaRoseSB) October 31, 2017

Other cosmetics brands, however, have historically chosen more age-appropriate spokeswomen for their campaigns, as HuffPost points out. L’Oreal has featured such celebs as Diane Keaton and Helen Mirren, and Ellen Degeneres has starred in both CoverGirl and Olay ads.

Even Mirren has noted the absurdity of featuring young models in ads targeted at an older demographic. “It used to drive me crazy that the ads promoting skin products were using pictures of 15- and 16-year-old girls,” she said. “As a 30-year-old, I used to look at that and think, what the f— are you talking about? It was ridiculous. P—ed me off majorly. Advertisers are only just coming out of that, and it’s taken them a long time,” she said at a panel for L’Oreal, Telegraph reported in August. 

Dior did not immediately repsond to request for comment.

This Is the Absolute Best Anti-Aging Workout, According to Science

© Provided by Best Health antiaging workout photo credit: shutterstock

This is the workout that will keep you looking like your young, beautiful self

Does simply looking at a treadmill make you age by 10 years? (HIIT) may be the antiaging workout that will solve that problem.

While it may seem counterintuitive to ramp up your workout’s intensity as you grow older, there’s a method to the madness.

These fast-paced antiaging workout exercises – which require short bursts of heavy cardio followed by less intense ‘rest’ periods- can boost your metabolism, manage your blood sugar levels, and torch calories in no time.

So why should you work out this way?

A new study is adding one more perk to that list: .

Mayo Clinic researchers recruited 72 sedentary adults ranging from 18 to 80 years old and assigned them to one of three 12-week workout programs: high-intensity interval cycling, strength training with weights, or a combined strength-training and cycling plan.

Throughout the study, the research team tracked volunteers’ progress via improvements in their leg strength, lean muscle mass, oxygen capacity, and insulin sensitivity. They also biopsied tissue samples and analyzed cells from the volunteers’ thighs.

All three exercise groups showed improvements in their lean muscle and aerobic capacity by the end of the 12-week session, the researchers reported. However, only those in the HIIT group reaped the most benefits in their mitochondrial performance, or the .

The younger and older volunteers experienced a 49 per cent and 69 per cent increase, respectively. Meanwhile, nobody in the strength-training program saw significant improvements in their mitochondrial capacity, and only the group of younger participants in the combined training group did.

But why do these results matter for aging?

‘Mitochondria and ribosomes are organelles that are important for metabolism and aerobic fitness, but tend to deteriorate as people get older,’ . ‘Keeping these structures healthy can reverse some signs of age-related decline within cells.’

Practice these simple anti-aging secrets in between your HIIT workouts, and you could add additional years to your life.

Just one catch to this miracle workout

Training this way, well, it’s not going to be that much fun.

‘If you can take , there’s a price to pay,’ Panteleimon Ekkekakis, a professor of kinesiology at Iowa State University, said. ‘The price is 100 per cent intensity. It’s undeniable that the experience will be unpleasant.’

In order to keep you on the move (and prevent burnout!), researchers recommend building intensity at a gradual pace over time.

Here is what you can do for an antiaging workout

Try starting with a that begins vigorously and slowly decreases to a lower intensity.

Ekkekakis’s study found that adults who did this routine were more likely to report increasing pleasure during and after exercise–and still remembered it as a positive experience up to a week later.

Bored with the same old exercise routine?

Dior Chooses 25-Year-Old Cara Delevingne As The Face Of Its Anti-Aging Products

Except Dior, which must not have been listening that day.

The brand announced the news via social media last week to mixed reviews, including an onslaught of confused comments and Twitter reactions. 

“Nothing against Cara but really Dior, c’mon???” one commented wrote. “Don’t think I’ll be wasting 💰 on this product line since as clearly you don’t have much confidence in its abilities.” 

“Love Cara, but having a 25-year-old as the face of products targeted at 30+ year olds doesn’t make sense,” another wrote. 

Beautiful Cara is 25. I’m 51 and I’m your target audience for Capture. It’s a wrinkle cream. This is unfair to her, and to me! #thatsnotme

Sorry Dior – that product line is aimed at 30+. She’s gorgeous but at 25 …. #thatsnotme Oh and can you please stop photoshopping Eva Herzigova to the point that she’s unrecognizable. Thanks

Dior has not responded to HuffPost’s request for comment.

According to W, the line is targeted to a slightly younger audience than its other anti-aging products, “to appeal to those who haven’t yet given thought to wrinkle-preventing regimes, aiming to delay and signs of aging before they appear.”  

We’re not in disagreement about the importance of proper skincare, but casting a 25-year-old in an anti-aging campaign only further perpetuates the unrealistic standard of beauty that has been put forth by beauty campaigns for decades.

“It used to drive me crazy that the ads promoting skin products were using pictures of 15- and 16-year-old girls,” she said. “As a 30-year-old, I used to look at that and think, what the f―- are you talking about? It was ridiculous. P――- me off majorly. Advertisers are only just coming out of that, and it’s taken them a long time.”

The fact is, anti-aging products are going to exist as long as there are people who are interested in purchasing them. But there are more responsible ways to market them ― and this is not it.
