When should I start using antiaging products?Louisa w Beads

It is never too late to start an antiaging routine but September seems to be the most popular time of year to revamp your skin care, due to post-summer sun damage. A good anti-aging routine should be quick and involve only a few key products. That way you’ll stick with it.

Here’s what you need to get the fastest results. These products are for all skin types and ages…

1. A cleanser that won’t strip your skin, such as our Beyond Clean Cleanser.
2. A toner that will balance the pH of skin, whether it’s dry, normal, oily or hormonal. Unlike other toners, our Soothing Toner is loaded with antioxidants. No other toner has this list of antioxidants!
3. A powerful daily age-defying moisturizer that hydrates, plumps and thickens sagging or aging skin, and repairs and prevents wrinkles and sun spots such as our Ultimate Age-Proofing Complex.
4. A healthy nano-particle-free 30 SPF sunscreen.
5. A nightly treatment serum that firms, repairs, nourishes and brightens skin tone such as our Skin Uplift Serum.
6. Twice weekly exfoliation with our Exfoliating Enzyme Powder to speed your skin rejuvenating results.

What should I look for in skin care?

– The cleanser you choose should cleanse without stripping your skin.
– A good toner should be free of alcohol. Ours is like no other – it’s loaded with antioxidants!
– An effective moisturizer should be a hydrating formula and not too thin or watery with peptides, epidermal growth factors and myriad antioxidants to rejuvenate all skin types.
– A superior night serum treatment will repair, nourish and protect your skin.
– And remember to always choose skincare that is cruelty-free, formulated in the USA and free of parabens, phthalates, fragrance, synthetic color, mineral oil, and petrochemicals.

What is it about these products that differ from others on the market?

With our products you’re sure to get BIG results for a SMALL price tag! No doctor brand can beat our quality, efficacy and pricing.

So many women get “taken” by high price tags. Many spend over $200 – $400 for just ONE face cream with minimal ingredients. Some of those pricey creams are laden with mineral oil AKA pretolatum – a crude by product of gasoline. Over-hyped Le Mer’s second ingredient is petrolatum – which over time dries and plugs your skin. They charge $175 for  a jar that mostly greasy petroleum jelly!! That’s a shame.

Yesterday, I saw an ad for a popular dermatological brand of EGF serum for a whopping $275. Are they kidding? Yet thousands of women think that if they pay more, it’s going to be more effective. That’s simply not true. It’s not necessary to overpay for doctor-recommended brands.

Our customers and clients are educated consumers. They love to read labels and research products so I’ve provided ingredients and other information on each product page so there is no guessing!

At, you’ll get healthy, premium grade, professionally strength and proven age-defying ingredients. And no mineral oil or petrolatum! You can’t go wrong with our 6-Piece Anti-aging Kit which includes these safe, healthy and effective key ingredients and much more:

Beyond Clean Cleanser (Sea Kelp, Salicylic Acid, Zinc and NO peroxide)
Soothing Toner (Sea Kelp, Astaxanthin, Collagen, Hyaluronic Acid)
Exfoliating Enzyme Powder (Bromelain, bamboo powder, White Willow Bark, Kiwi)
Ultimate Age-Proofing Complex (Day) (EGF, 3 Peptides, Hyaluronic Acid, Antioxidants)
Skin Uplift Serum (Night) (Sea Kelp, 2 Peptides, Hyaluronic Acid, Collagen, DMAE)
30 SPF Sunscreen (Sunscreen/Primer in one with antioxidants)

Whether you’re 29 or 79, to help repair, protect and age-proof your skin, our 6 piece Antiaging Kit is the key.

Best of all – the 6-Piece Antiaging Kit can be used by ALL skin types, whether you have normal, mature, dry or oily skin. Our products are formulated in the USA with scientifically proven, premium quality, professional strength ingredients in the highest concentrations to ensure you get results! Our products inlcuding the 6-piece anti-aging kit are free of parabens, synthetic dyes, fragrances, mineral oil, petrochemicals, phthalates and they’re cruelty-free.

No other brand can compare to us when it comes to quality, price and efficacy.

I’m on a tight budget. If I had to buy only 3 products to help reverse aging, what would you recommend?

Hands down, our Ultimate Age-Proofing Complex (apply in the day), our Skin Uplift Serum (apply at night), and our Exfoliating Enzyme Powder (apply twice weekly) will have you soon seeing results.

I know you’ll soon become a repeat customer, if you aren’t already. Many of our clients have ordered 50 to over 100 times. They are loyal because the strength, quality and our affordable prices.

I have some issues with oily skin and blemish/acne breakouts. What routine do you suggest for these concerns?

For those new to Hollywood Beauty Secrets and wondering which products to choose if you’re challenged with frequent blemish breakouts or acne, you can also use the 6-piece Anti-Aging Kit. Be sure to exfoliate your skin twice weekly with the Exfoliating Enzyme Powder. Now if you are dealing with an EXTREME case of blemish breakouts or acne, you may also want to invest in one of the following two options to alternate with the Skin Uplift Serum at night:

NIGHT OPTION #1: 024U Hyper-Oxygenated Serum (contains retinol)

I have age-spots, hyperpigmentation and dehydrated mature skin. Will the 6-Piece Antiaging Kit work for me?

Yes, the 6-piece Antiaging Kit offers products with ingredients that will address all these issues; Age-spots, Hyperpigmentation and Dehydrated, Mature Skin.

Preventing hyperpigmentation and sunspots is crucial to having an even skin tone and a brighter complexion as you age. Be sure to exfoliate your skin twice weekly with the Exfoliating Enzyme Powder. In addition to the 6-Piece Anti-Aging Kit, if you have an extreme case of dryness or hyperpigmentation, you can add any one of the following products to alternate with the Skin Uplift Serum at night to speed results:

Night OPTION #1: Stem Cell Serum
NIGHT OPTION #2: 024U Hyper-Oxygenated Serum (contains retinol)
NIGHT OPTION #3 – for dehydrated, mature skin
Night Perfect Serum or Ultimate Ceramide & Lipid Serum + Antioxidants

**To enhance your skin care routine, Emu Oil is highly regarded by many skin care professionals. It actually penetrates and pushes active ingredients far down into the dermis where you want them to go! Plastic surgeons recommend this oil for faster wound recovery from surgery. It does not clog pores so can be used by all skin types.

I have dark circles, puffiness and well as lines around my eyes? What do you recommend?

If you have dark circles, bags or puffiness I highly recommend our Eye Perfect. This is a hugely popular re-order product. It’s a professional strength formulation that includes our patented DePuff® with not one or two, but three age-defying peptides, super antioxidants; resveratrol, DMAE, and alpha lipoic acid, skin-quenching hyaluronic acid and squalane oil (from olives – not sharks) and collagen, minerals and amino acids that address the signs of aging eyes.Skincare Questions Answered 8Skincare Questions Answered 9

Some clients tell us that Eye Perfect has also helped to firm slack neck skin and fade age spots on their faces. You can use Eye Perfect on your face too!

How do I apply your 30 SPF nano-particle- free sunscreen by Suntegrity?

Mineral-based sunscreen filters more UV light than chemical sunscreen. Our 30 SPF sunscreen by Suntegrity is paraben and nano-particle free. It prevents age spots and hormonal imbalances, acts as primer to help smooth skin, and includes antioxidants such as Astaxanthin.

This award-winning sunscreen and primer-in-one was created by my friend Tricia Trimble in honor of her Mom who lost her life to skin cancer.
TIP: Apply our 30 SPF sunscreen  sparingly. Place a little dot on your forehead, cheeks, nose and chin and massage well, until lightness fades. Also apply on neck and décolletage. Wait about 60 seconds before applying makeup.

If my moisturizer has antiaging ingredients, why do I need a serum and what is the difference between a serum and a moisturizer? Do I need both?

Like love and marriage, you can’t have one without the other! They both are necessary for maximum antiaging results. I’ll explain the difference below:

Serums: All serums are thinner and offer gel-like, stiffer textures so they are best applied at night. The results will be evident in the morning, when you rinse off the serum. Whether you choose our Skin Uplift Serum, or our Stem Cell Serum or Night Perfect Serum, you’ll wake up to beautiful, brighter, firmer, lifted and more youthful looking skin. Though serums don’t look as moist on the skin for day wear, some of my clients layer the Skin Uplift Serum UNDER the Ultimate Age-Proofing Complex moisturizer in the morning, for skin firmness and a dewy looking, plumper and more youthful complexion.

Moisturizer: An effective moisturizer should lift and hydrate so the skin feels dewy without being greasy. Our Ultimate Age-Proofing Complex is our most popular daytime moisturizer because it has everything you need to defy aging. Our huge re-order rate backs this up! Ultimate Aging Proofing Complex locks in moisture, lifts, smooths and repairs wrinkles, plumps and adds volume to sagging skin, brightens, hydrates, protects and nourishes your skin. It offers loads of active ingredients that will enhance the effectiveness of any serum you are using.
