Understanding EGF Cream

skin care benefits of EGF creamWe all strive to achieve beautiful, clear and youthful-looking skin. There are many products available to you online that offer anti-aging properties, but finding the ones that are healthy, affordable and actually work for your lifestyle, skin type, and daily routine can be difficult.  One that comes to mind when thinking about genuinely revolutionary results in anti-aging is EGF cream or epidermal growth factor cream. Here are a few facts about EGF cream that you should know, and how it can benefit you and your skin for many years to come.

It is a polypeptide – Polypeptides, which are a long string of amino acids, are generally produced through your endocrine system and have a variety of different functions in your body. Polypeptides offer regenerative properties in your body, specifically your skin.

53 Blocks of Protein – Epidermal Growth Factors combine 53 blocks of protein that restore the skin’s density These proteins penetrate and bind the cells of the dermis (where collagen forms) and epidermis (surface of the skin) and help regenerate and accelerate the formation of thicker, firmer, healthier looking skin with increased elasticity.

Boosting collagen production – Throughout the years, your body does not produce collagen as much as it did when you were younger. Collagen is vital to keeping your skin looking full, youthful, and bright, and without your body producing much of it as you age, your skin sags and becomes dull. EGF cream is known for helping to boost collagen production in your skin, which helps to keep it looking plumper, tighter and erase fine lines that aging has created.

Red Light Therapy for Wrinkles: How Does it Work?

One of the most unique, groundbreaking therapies in the anti-aging field of skin care has been red light therapy. Using specific wavelengths of red and red light therapy for wrinklesinfrared light emitting diodes (LEDs), you can activate the production of collagen, which is what your body slows down producing as you age, to help smooth and plump the wrinkles on your skin as you age. It is relatively simple to do, especially since it has so many benefits. However, how does red light therapy for wrinkles really work? We are here to give you a step-by-step analysis on how this cutting-edge technology can help get rid of your fine lines for good.

How Red Light Therapy Works

Red light therapy, which was initially tested by NASA for an entirely separate project, is part of what some people call color therapy for skin. Through analysis of various light wavelengths and colors, scientists were able to see that through a specific, low-light wavelength, red light combined with infrared light had the most benefit to aging skin. As skin gets older, it loses collagen and elastin, which are two critical factors in keeping it looking young, fresh, and smooth. Red light therapy helps to increase blood flow to the areas where you see the most aging, which builds capillaries that bring oxygen flow to those spots. When you can get oxygen to those areas that may not have had it before, you can help produce collagen and elastin in your skin more quickly, which in return smooths wrinkles and other signs of aging such as inflammation. By combining red light with infrared LEDs, you get an even faster age-defying effect. The combination of Red and infrared LEDs calm inflammation for effective skin rejuvenation and also helps to ease the pain.

Step 3. Gently roll the micro skin roller on neck and jowls.  NOTE: Do not use the needle roller unless skin is washed clean and free of all makeup or environmental pollution.

Micro skin roller usage TIPS: Do NOT press hard, just firmly enough – so that the skin turns pink – but does not bleed.  If you bleed, you are pressing too hard. Continue to gently glide the micro skin roller in an upward motion (in straight upward lines) on the neck and jowls –  for 5 passes. Remember, go slowly to prevent scratching your skin.

Step 4. After 5 upward passes, stop and re-apply more serum and do 5 passes going across the jowls and neck. Go slowly to prevent scratching the skin.

See the video on our Micro Needle Roller page. I am using Stem Cell Serum in the video, but you can choose any of the four high quality serums noted above ranging in prices from $29.95 to $49.95.

Step 5. When done, apply emu oil. Make sure to use our 100% pure Emu Oil. Many others on the market are diluted with deer oil or other cheap oils.

DPL II for Beautiful, Glowing Skin and Cognitive Function

My friend, Beth Shaw, Founder and CEO of Yogafit wrote this interesting article about the DPL II.

The One Thing You Should Consider for Beautiful, Glowing Skin and Cognitive Function – DPL II Red Light Therapy

If I’m honest I bought the DPL Red light because I read that Dave Asprey from BulletProof was using it for cognitive function and mitochondria production.  As many of you know I am obsessed with improving cognitive function. I also used to go for red light facials when I lived in LA and was always pleased with the results, which I was quite sure increased my serotonin levels as well as gave me nice skin.

I did a lot of research before I bought my DPL II panel… There were so many to choose from- super expensive models and the small cheaper ones which I tried before with no result. This was around a month ago, maybe more.

The DPL II has actually more wattage than the much more expensive models that they use in skin care salons and the good news is that it is super portable.

The DPL II is FDA-Approved for skin rejuvenation, smoothing and preventing wrinkles. It can also be used from head to toe for pain recovery, injuries, wound healing and circulation.  Like everything else I am doing these days, I wanted to give it a thorough test drive before speaking about it .  Technically you are supposed to use the unit every day for 30 days to see results, I am using mine 3-4 x per week and I am seeing major differences in my skin.

My skin seems a lot healthier, I had a friend staying with me, when she came into the house as I was using my Red Light- her words were – “you are glowing”. Another good friend who is in the spa industry said that she noticed a difference in my skin. I also noticed a substantial difference in the size of my pores after using the red light for two weeks consistently. They got smaller.

Get the DPL II for $150 off and free S+H in the USA. (Regular $399.95) so you pay only $249.95. To get this offer, enter Coupon 1958 at checkout at www.HollywoodBeautySecrets.com

Why is Silica Important for Health and Beauty?

This article was written by my colleague, nutritionist Rick Wagner and founder of Eidon Ionic Minerals. 
Silica is important for health and beauty. Silica’s overall optimal bodily function has been recognized for quite some time. As early as 1878, Louis Pasteur predicted that silica would be found to be an important therapeutic substance for many diseases and would play a significant role in human health and consequently nutrition.

Research

During the 20th century, progress was made by pioneering researchers and scientists such as Carlisle, Butenandt, Iler, Bergna, Kervran, and Schwartz. Edith Carlisle’s work in the 70’s through the 90’s at the UCLA School of Public Health, perhaps more than any other, demonstrated the necessity of having silica in the body for proper growth and development. As a result of her research, we know that silica is absolutely essential for the body to create and maintain collagen. What was dramatically shown through Carlisle’s research was that when silica is withheld from normal nutrition, gross abnormalities develop and normal growth does not take place. While Carlisle’s work was done with chickens and mice, humans have also been experimenting with silica.

Human experimentation has yielded some amazing results. Where animal research showed the absolute necessity of silica for healthy and normal growth maintenance, human research has demonstrated the effects of silica supplementation on a much broader spectrum of maladies from youth through middle and old age.

The necessity of silica for collagen formation and development is the basis of many of these physiological effects. Collagen is the tough fibrous material that holds us together. Many aging problems are a direct result of the body’s inability to maintain adequate collagen. Think for a moment about the following aging problems: joint deterioration, brittle bones, hardening of the arteries, dry skin, inability to digest food properly, weakened teeth and gums, and atrophying organs. They all are collagen related in one form or another.  When we are young, Silica levels in our body are high and our bones and joints are flexible.  Our skin is supple and glowing.  As we age, Silica levels decline and without adequate tissue levels of Silica, we manifest many of the symptoms of aging such as joint disease, weakened digestion, and wrinkled skin, to name a few.

Nutritional and Therapeutic Applications for Silica

1. Connective tissue strengthening and support (joint, ligaments and muscles)

2. Bone strengthening and support through enhanced calcium absorption

Within bone, silica is the essential component making up the collagen matrix upon which calcium is deposited. This relationship is so fundamental that it is truly impossible to form bone without both calcium and silica. In fact, researchers are exploring the possibility that supplementation of silica, rather than calcium may be what is needed for maintaining strong bonesStrengthening of teeth and gums.

3. Cardiovascular support

Silica in adequate quantities creates supple arteries and veins and is effective in removing plaque from artery walls. This has actually been known since 1958 when Loeper and Loeper found arteriosclerotic artery walls showed excessively high levels of calcium and lower than normal levels of in silica.

4. Stomach and digestive disorders

Most disorders of the stomach and digestive tract involve a degradation of the lining in the G.I. tract.  Silica is an essential element involved in rebuilding and maintaining these tissues.

5. Immune system enhancement

Our skin is our first line of defense against naturally occurring bacteria, virus’s, and other pathogens.  Silica promotes and maintains healthy skin tissue.

6. Wound and burn healing

Silica stimulates the rapid re-growth of damaged skin tissue. In addition to taking our Silica Concentrate Orally, you can also apply it topically on burned skin to speed healing.

7. Thinning hair, brittle nails, and dry skin. All of these external parts of our body are collagen based.

8. Strengthening of teeth and gums

9. Aluminum elimination enhancement

Silica has been shown to be a good eliminator of aluminum.  Aluminum has been implicated as a cause of Alzheimer’s.

While the above areas may seem quite diverse, in actuality they are directly or indirectly related to proper collagen formation. Given that connective tissue is basically collagen, the inability of the body to rebuild this tissue will result in excessive injuries, general deterioration, or excessively long periods of healing time when injuries occur.

To Supplement or Not To Supplement?

The age-old debate rages on with a definitive swing in favor of supplementation. The American medical establishment is also beginning to embrace the need for supplementation to enhance health and longevity. Why is there a need to supplement with silica if it is the second most prevalent element on earth? The reason is threefold:

1. As we age, scientific measurements have shown that the human body retains less and less silica.
2. Silica does not occur in sufficient amounts in a wide variety of foodstuffs. It is primarily found in natural oats, millet, barley, wheat and potatoes. If we eat these foods at all, they are normally refined to a point where all the silica has been removed.
3. The average American diet does not contain adequate levels of essential nutrients especially Silica. Studies have shown that the average person ingests between 20 to 60 milligrams of silica daily depending upon their diet.  Results from people who have supplemented with silica at 375 mg per day support silica’s effectiveness and reinforce the fact that 20 to 60 milligrams per day is not adequate. According to researchers some form of daily silica supplementation will be very beneficial. To get 375 mg a day, add 30 drops of our Ionic Minerals Silica Concentrate to 8 oz. water, juice or in a smoothie. Find Ionic Minerals Silica Concentrate in health food stores.
