A study finds Pycnogenol® is effective in improving visible signs of skin aging in women, aged 55-68 years. Published in Skin Pharmacology and Physiology, the study found that after 12 weeks of supplementing with Pycnogenol®, women experienced improved skin hydration and increased skin elasticity by 25 percent. Pycnogenol® significantly elevated collagen and increased hyaluronic acid production in skin by 44 percent.
This study confirms previous findings that Pycnogenol® effectively improves skin conditions, including promoting glowing skin and reducing the appearance of over-pigmentation and skin inflammation.

Fall & Winter Skin Care

dreamstime_xs_5785685If you have sensitive or fussy skin, you know how hard it is to keep your skin happy, especially in the colder months. Once you get the hang of what your skin wants, the weather changes and you are back to square one, right ?

Best solution is to change your products every 3 months or so, adjusting for weather change. Right now it’s time to stop using light summer moisturizers and focus on a good exfoliation to remove the summer dry, flaky tan.

Start using a nourishing night cream and maybe a serum under the moisturizing day cream. Time to add an eye cream to the regime, to nourish those pesky little lines and make them go away!
