HOLIDAY TIPS FOR RADIANT GLOWING SKIN, NATURALLY

With the chilly weather, busy schedules, and travel itineraries, we come to the realization that holiday season is here! We begin to layer on our clothes, cram as much as we can into our days, and increase our caffeine intake. In order to survive the chaos of the holidays, we cannot forget to pamper ourselves. Just because we are tired and stressed that does not mean we have to look like it. In fact, this is when you want to be looking your party best all the way until the New Year (and beyond)!

During the holiday season, time is of the essence but don’t let your skin care regimen suffer. For starters, make sure you’re staying hydrated and getting plenty of rest. Lack of sleep can also speed up signs of aging. The Anti-Wrinkle Cleanser and Moisturizer will help to slow down father time! To combat dull skin, exfoliating 1-2 times a week with the Microdermabrasion scrub will help keep your skin glowing and ready for the next event!

The cold weather combined with holiday stress commonly triggers dry skin, acne and skin discoloration. The Hydrating Day Cream and Night Cream will help to nourish skin. SunkissAlba’s Radiant Glow Face Oil helps to soften, illuminate and add moisture to your skin, body, and hair for a picture perfect glow. Acne comes to people of all ages, stress and lack of sleep can cause pesky acne blemishes to appear. The Very Clear Acne Cleanser can help keep acne blemishes away year round. Skin Brighten is a great natural solution for skin discolorations and for helping to even out skin tone for a radiant glow.

Getting a good night’s rest and keeping your stress levels low will help keep your skin hydrated, glowing, and ready for the next activity. Have a wonderful holiday season! Remember to enjoy the company of your family and friends as they are the perfect gift!

WHY PEPTIDES AND COLLAGEN ARE GOOD FOR YOUR SKIN

Fine lines, sagging skin and lackluster texture are all common complexion concerns and you can spend a lot of time—and money—trying to find the magic product to cure all those ills. You can make that search a lot easier if you invest in skin care that contains peptides and collagen. Both of them are instrumental in maintaining the look of healthy, vibrant skin and should be a part of your daily beauty routine.

A BRIEF BACKGROUND ON PEPTIDES AND COLLAGEN

Peptides have become more and more popular in recent years as their significant role in maintaining radiant skin has been recognized. Peptides are actually made up of amino acids, and these amino acids link together in many different ways to create hundreds of different kinds of peptides. These peptides are the foundation for many different types of protein, but for skin care, perhaps the most important protein is collagen.

Collagen is the most prevalent protein in the body. It does a lot of work for your body that you can’t see—it helps maintain strong joints and tendons, supports the organs and maintains a healthy musculoskeletal system. Collagen also has another function that is very visible—it creates firm and supple skin. Unfortunately, collagen production slows down, for reasons including age and photodamage caused by UV exposure. When collagen production decreases, those nagging signs of skin damage—wrinkles, loss of elasticity and firmness—start to show on your face.

HOW PEPTIDES AND COLLAGEN CAN BOOST BEAUTIFUL SKIN

Because collagen is a protein, and because peptides are vital for healthy protein function, peptides are crucial for collagen support. Peptides are considered a cell regulator because they have the potential to stimulate collagen production. More collagen means glowing, youthful-looking skin that is resilient, with a feeling of elasticity and plumpness.

The hundreds of different kinds of peptides that are out there can work on skin in different ways. DERMA E’s collection of peptide and collagen skin care products uses two different peptides with superior benefits. Matrixyl® synthe’6® may help support collagen in order to revitalize the skin’s tone and texture, while Argireline® has the capability to smooth out the appearance of the skin and diminish the look of fine lines. The overall result of using these powerful peptides on a regular basis is the appearance of a transformed complexion that blooms with the look of youth and beauty. These DERMA E products also contain a plant-derived form of collagen called Acacia Seyal Gum Extract, which has wonderful moisturizing benefits for the skin to keep it feeling soft and supple.

Peptides may be the star of a skin care product, but they need a strong supporting cast in order to be the most effective. DERMA E recognizes this by formulating its products with high-quality antioxidants, vitamins and botanicals that work in conjunction with peptides for maximum benefits. Proven antioxidant powerhouses such as green tea and vitamins A, C and E are staples of DERMA E’s peptide and collagen skin care, as well as the plant extract Pycnogenol®. These ingredients combine to nourish skin so that it looks its best.

DERMA E’s peptide and collagen products build and enhance a natural lovely complexion. The Advanced Peptides & Collagen Moisturizer is a terrific way to incorporate these ingredients into your daily skin care regimen because it can be used both day and night, and it also primes the skin with hydration so it’s ready for makeup to be applied—foundation won’t crease around fine lines or highlight uneven rough patches on your face.

Another great twice-daily option, especially if you prefer a more lightweight formulation in your skin care products, is the Advanced Peptides & Collagen Serum. The serum has the same potent active ingredients as the moisturizer, so you can use the serum on its own, under makeup, or layered with other skin care products. If the signs of aging are showing up mainly around your eyes, thanks to crow’s feet or sagginess, then the Advanced Peptides & Collagen Eye Cream can help address those concerns. Your eyes will look bright and revived with this double-action peptide formula especially developed to care for the delicate, thin skin around the eye area.

You can’t have healthy-looking skin without a healthy supply of collagen, and peptides may be one of your best options to help revive the appearance of your complexion. With DERMA E, you can be confident that you are using products that are robust enough to produce noticeable results in the look of your skin while also containing natural ingredients that won’t harm your skin because they are free of agents such as parabens, sulfates and mineral oil. DERMA E’s 100% vegan formulations are all cruelty free and packaged in environmentally friendly materials, so they’re good for you and for the planet. So if you’re not already using peptides and collagen in your skin care, DERMA E is the ideal place to get started on your way to radiant-looking skin.

6 KEY NUTRIENTS TO SUPPORT EYE HEALTH

Why is eye health so important?

We should all take the best possible care of our eyes. Losing your vision can be a scary process, and something which most people fear. So, this week, I am going to take a look at products which may help care for your eyes and protect your vision.

A while ago now, I was visited by a lady who was suffering from recurrent eye infections and as a result had been put onto steroid eye drops - which her optician had now told her could damage her eyes and cause future problems with her vision. Because of this terrifying news, she had come in to see if I could suggest anything which would strengthen and support her vision.


What are the key nutrients to look out for?

There are, happily, several nutrients and other supplements which have been noted as being beneficial to eye health. Often it is possible to find some, or all, of them in eye complex supplements. The key ingredients to look out for include: lutein, bilberry, mixed carotenoids, zinc, alpha lipoic acid and rutin.

• Lutein, which is found in green leafy vegetables, is widely accepted these days as being vital to eye health. It is said to protect against eye strain, failing vision and macular degeneration. Many opticians now recommend that people deemed to be at risk of developing macular degeneration take Lutein. Look for at least 10mg of Lutein - as this amount is suggested as the best daily intake.

• Bilberry is good for improving night vision and research has shown that it could be helpful for people suffering with degeneration of their vision. It is said to help strengthen the capillaries serving the eye, improving circulation and protecting the eye from damage.

• Carotenoids are the colourful pigments found in vegetables like carrots, sweet potatoes, peppers and tomatoes. They are important antioxidants, which means that they protect cells against damage, so could also be helpful in protecting against the development of issues such as cataracts.

• Zinc is a mineral which is known to be important in improving and supporting good vision. Low levels of zinc have always been associated with poor vision, so when looking at the eyes making sure there are good zinc levels is very important.

• Alpha lipoic acid is a nutrient which we have only really been using for the last few years, even though it is thought to be the first vitamin ever discovered! It is helpful for people suffering with neuropathy (tingling and numbness in the fingers and toes). It has also been said to help promote healthy blood sugar levels, potentially protecting diabetics from the development of diabetic eye disorders.

• Finally, Rutin should be included because it is thought to help strengthen the blood vessels behind and around the eye. It has also been suggested that this in turn could protect against the development, or deterioration, of eye disorders.


Results?

The research behind each of these ingredients suggests that using some, or all, of them daily should offer the kind of insurance policy many of us are looking for: something which could protect against ever-stronger prescriptions, or even something which could prevent an existing eye condition from deteriorating as quickly as it may otherwise have done.

I know, from my own work in clinics, that many people I have put onto a combination of these ingredients have been very happy with the fact that their vision has not changed in years – when it was expected to get significantly worse!

These ingredients may become more and more important in the future, as we begin to discover the potential damage done to our eyes by exposure to blue light from mobile phone screens.

THE MICROBIOME & THE BRAIN

THE 'SECOND BRAIN'

Human beings have a ‘second brain’ in the gut – a number of enteric cells, containing the same number of neurones as the brain of a cat, stretched out along the digestive tract.

These cells are in direct communication with the brain, via the Vagus Nerve.  This communication is not one way either – the gut influences the brain and the brain responds.

The gut bacteria produce a large number of neurotransmitters, which help and support the brain and mood:

  • 95% Serotonin (our happy brain chemical) is actually produced in the gut and then sent to the brain
  • Dopamine production is also largely reliant on our gut flora – dopamine is important for motivation
  • GABA (an anti-anxiety neurotransmitter) is also synthesised by good bacteria.

Therefore, the gut flora will have a huge impact on mood, motivation and behaviour.  If the bacteria involved in the production of these neurotransmitters were depleted, this could lead to increased levels of stress, anxiety and depression.  Furthermore, this appears to be something of a cycle - as stress and poor sleep are known to reduce the levels of good bacteria living in the gut.

All of this means that good bacteria levels play a vital role in the management of stress, anxiety and depression.


 SPECIFIC BACTERIA TO SUPPORT THE BRAIN & MOOD

In trials, it has been shown that supplementing the diet of depressed people with a combination of L. acidophillus, L. casei and Bifidobacteria bifidus significantly improved their mood and motivation.(1)

L. rhamnosus has also been shown to have beneficial effects in the treatment of depression and anxiety.(2) 

Combining these bacteria with a B Vitamin complex - which can be used to support healthy mood and mental performance - could provide the missing piece of the puzzle for many people struggling with long term anxiety or depression issues. It could also be a key combination for stressed, busy people who are feeling fuzzy headed or forgetful.

THE MICROBIOME & THE SKIN

THE MICROBIOME AND THE SKIN

The relationship between the gut and the brain is often described as the gut-brain axis. This idea is taken a step further with the concept of the gut-brain-skin axis.

This theory is quite simple and makes a lot of sense, simply put:

Our emotional health impacts our gut flora, which impacts our skin health, which in turn impacts our emotional health…. And so on, in a constant cycle.

Rebuilding the good gut flora will help to break the cycle, improving both skin and emotional wellbeing.


DID YOU KNOW?

Did you know that 40% of those people who suffer with inflammatory bowel diseases also struggle with some form of skin disorder? Or that unbalanced gut flora is 10 times more common in people who are suffering with acne rosacea?!

This link between the skin and the health of the gut is not new.

Researchers as far back as 1930 suspected a link between gut health and skin health – modern research though, has confirmed the importance of this relationship.

Many studies have shown that stress and gut inflammation can result in a reduction in the anti-microbial peptides produced by the skin, causing an increase in infection and inflammation. In fact, many skin conditions including acne, rosacea, psoriasis and dermatitis have now been shown to be linked to increased levels of unfriendly bacteria in the gut.


SPECIFIC BACTERIA TO SUPPORT THE SKIN

The bacteria shown in research to be supportive of skin health include L. PlantarumL. Rhamnosus & L. Reuteri.

These bacteria have been studied in skin health and it appears that they may help to reduce the numbers of the following ‘unfriendly’ bacteria:

• Staphylococcus aureus – a bacteria linked to skin infections, pimples, boils & cellulitis

• Pseudomonas aeruginosa – thought to be responsible for skin inflammation, infection and dermatitis.

• Propionibacterium acnes – the bacteria linked to the development of acne and oily skin.

• Staphylococcus epidermis – an opportunistic bacterium which has been linked to the worsening of all skin conditions.


Look out for next week’s blog, where I will be discussing “the Microbiome and the Brain.”

WHAT HAVE MY GOOD BACTERIA EVER DONE FOR ME?

There are over 50 trillion bacteria living inside each of us, forming what is referred to as ‘The Microbiome.’ Ongoing research has shown us that, such is the importance of the Microbiome, it is not possible to be a healthy human without healthy gut-flora!

SOME OF THE ROLES OF THE MICROBIOME:

  • Helping with weight regulation: Research has shown that naturally thin people have a different biome to those who struggle to lose weight. (1) It would also appear that some bacteria can actually make us crave sugary foods, making it harder to stick to a healthy eating plan. (1)
  • Supporting healthy digestion and elimination: Good bacteria play a vital role in the health of the digestive system, helping to reduce wind and bloating as well as supporting healthy bowel function. (2,3)
  • A healthy microbiome could prevent food intolerances: Good bacteria help to keep the gut wall healthy, preventing allergens from leaving the intestines. If the gut flora is not balanced correctly, the wall can start to break down, allowing allergens to leave the gut andleading to the development of food intolerances. (4)
  • Supporting the immune system: Up to 80% of our immune function is influenced by the gut. Studies have indicated that a reduction in the level of good bacteria can increase the number, and severity, of infections.(4)
  • Perfect travel companions: The major fear of every holiday maker is that they could be struck down with ‘holiday tummy’. It has been shown that taking a good bacteria supplement can prevent traveller’s diarrhoea.(5)

ARE SUPPLEMENTS NECESSARY?

Many things in life can influence the Microbiome, and our beneficial bacteria can be killed off by:

  • A high sugar diet
  • Stress
  • Artificial sweeteners
  • Processed foods
  • The Pill or HRT
  • Antibiotics – the negative effects of taking antibiotics on our gut flora can last for up to a year without supplementation.(6)

Considering this, many nutritionists believe that most people could benefit from using a good bacteria supplement to strengthen their microbiome.


 IMPORTANT CONSIDERATIONS:

As there are over 50 trillion bacteria inside us, if we want to increase the number of good bacteria in our microbiome we need to think about the numbers. Even 1-2 billion is only going to be a drop in the ocean!

Realistically, when looking to make a change to our microbiome, we need to work in high numbers – look for at least 30 billion good bacteria per capsule. Those with food intolerances, or who have used strong antibiotics, could even benefit from using up to 100 billion good bacteria per day.

NATURAL WAYS TO SUPPORT YOUR TEEN THROUGH EXAM SEASON

A trying time for parents - and of course for teenagers, who feel the pressure the  anxiety and brain freeze. Here are some natural ways we can help and support our teens through this demanding time.

ENCOURAGE THEM TO TAKE A BREAK: Unfortunately, this distraction usually comes from her phone or computer. Ideally a break from revision should be a complete break from screens, including phones: A walk, some exercise, or trying some relaxation breathing are all good options. Giving the brain, and focus, this sort of break is important to prevent them from feeling overwhelmed. It will also help to improve the uptake of information.

• MAKE SURE THEY GET SOME SLEEP: Sleep is king, and teenagers are renowned for always being tired. This is because they have such a lot going on. They are growing and developing, they are making great energy demands on their brain, and - if my daughter is anything to go by - they are not keen on going to bed. Try to have some screen free time before bed, and maybe discourage phones and screens from the bedroom – the blue light they emit can really disrupt sleep patterns.

 IT’S NOT TOO LATE FOR FISH OILS: According to studies carried out on school children, fish oils can help to improve concentration and focus. Therefore, taking a fish oil supplement could be very helpful during revision time.

• TRY PROBIOTICS: There has been a vast amount of research carried out into the benefits of good bacteria on our mental health and brain function. The gut and the brain are intimately linked. Did you know for example, that our good bacteria are responsible for producing much of the serotonin and GABA our brain needs? Serotonin is important to help keep our mood lifted; GABA is important to help keep us calm – both very much required by our children (and by us!). The bacteria strains with the most research behind them for supporting mood and memory are L. acidophilus, L. casei, L. rhamnosus and B. bifidum – so these are the key strains to try and get into your moody teens!

 LOOK FOR A COMBINATION OF B VITAMINS AND MAGNESIUM: B vitamins support the nervous system and normal energy production. Vitamin B5 particularly helps to support mental performance – concentration and focus. My dad always used to say that B vitamins should be mandatory for teens, as they help with mood and energy! Magnesium also supports the nervous system, as well as helping muscle function. Research has indicated that low levels of magnesium are linked to increased anxiety and poor sleep, again demonstrating why it is ideal for our teens. Some products do combine these nutrients with good bacteria – creating an easy one-a-day way to support them (and us, we can take it too!) through stressful times.

5 TIPS FOR A HEALTHIER YOU

When it comes to making healthy lifestyle changes, do you find yourself saying “I’ll start tomorrow” all because you have the mentality that it’s just too much. Well if that’s the case, this blog is definitely for you! Unfortunately, the general conception around healthy eating is that it can be time consuming and costly, however that is not the case at all! A little organisation and preparation is all it takes to set yourself up for a good healthy week.

I’ve created the ultimate ‘lazy’ guide to healthy eating that combines a list of helpful hacks and clever tips to guarantee you a healthy week ahead.

MEAL PREP IS YOUR BEST FRIEND
Meal prepping is the ultimate healthy eating hack (and even helps cut down your spending with not having to buy lunch at work!). All you’ll need is a good two hours to prep all your meals for the week. It involves preparing lunches and snacks such as healthy muffins, protein balls and mini quiches.

To avoid overwhelming yourself and hitting a wall with creativity, stick to your favourite recipes but with a healthier twist. For instance, if you love spaghetti bolognaise, it’s a great opportunity to pack more vegies in the sauce by adding mushroom, carrot and celery, you can also swap the pasta for zucchini noodles. I also like to make my own healthier version of banana bread by replacing the flour to oat flour, using apple puree or greek yoghurt instead of butter, brown rice syrup instead of white sugar and adding in walnuts and chia seeds.

3 WORDS: CLICK AND COLLECT
We live in a wonderful time where someone else can do your shopping for you! Click and collect is one of the easiest time saving tips when it comes to grocery shopping. It’s also a fantastic way to stay on track for the week food wise as you won’t be side tracked into walking down the ol’ chocolate or chips isle. Click and collect allows you to order all your groceries online, the supermarket will pack it for you and then you choose your time to pick it up. The great part is, it’s 100% free (with a minimum spend of $30). Alternatively, you can do delivery but there is a small fee involved.

BREAKFAST ON THE GO
Breakfast is your prime opportunity to provide your body with a nutritiously dense meal to break that night long fast. Often we can find ourselves rushed in the mornings and have little time to eat a decent breakfast. Sorry to break it to you but those muesli bars are packing a lot more sugar than we like to think. Creating frozen smoothie packs are an excellent way to ensure you give your body the right start it deserves. I like to place a mix of berries, banana, leafy greens, chia seeds, protein powder and inulin in zip lock bags in the freezer. Then in the morning, I simply add it to the blender along with almond milk, blend and it’s good to go! Overnight oats are another great breakfast option; one of my favourite delicious tips is never throw away your nut butter jars when you have that little bit left in the jar. Place 1/3 cup oats or quinoa flakes into the jar along with some fruit, chia seeds and almond milk. You can also add protein powder as well. Place the lid on and give it a good shake. Come morning time you’ll have the most delicious and gooey breakfast- just don’t forget the spoon!

JUNK FOOD PROOF YOUR PANTRY
Junk food is classified as any prepared or packaged food that has low nutritional value- in other words you definitely don’t want these guys hanging around your kitchen. Out of sight, out of mind is the best approach to have with junk food, if it’s not around you, then you won’t be tempted to eat it. We could go on about the endless artificial colours, preservatives and flavours are lurking within those packets but we’d prefer to give you the solution! Having your own healthy standby of snacks is your best option here. Think nuts, fresh fruit and chopped veggies like carrots and celery, they taste delicious dipped with our SuperDip range. If you find yourself to be a serial snacker, schedule in some extra baking during your meal prep sessions.

DON’T CUT IT, JUST SWAP IT

 

SWAP FOR
Cows milk Almond milk
Parmesan cheese Nutritional yeast
Pasta Zucchini noodles
Wheat flour Oat flour/quinoa flour
White bread Wholegrain bread
Butter Coconut oil
Whipping cream Greek yoghurt
Milk chocolate Dark chocolate
 Mayonnaise Avocado
White potato Sweet potato
White rice Cauliflower rice
Soft drink Kombucha

As nutritionists, we believe in the saying ‘everything in moderation’, this also includes consuming a variety of food groups. If there’s a food you really enjoy, rather than cut it out completely you can also replace it with a healthier or lower kilojoule or more wholesome food so you don’t feel like you’re completely missing out.

12 GREAT USES OF ARGAN OIL

Argan oil has become one of the hot new products on the market within recent years. This multi-functional, nutritious oil forged from the Argan Forest in Morocco has many benefits and is multi-purposeful.

Top 12 great uses:

1. Moisturizer: Since Argan oil has the ability to absorb quickly without leaving a residue, it serves as a great moisturizer. The nutrients in the oil help to replenish dry skin. It can be used all over the body and is gentle as well as safe enough to use around your eyes. Especially good for the cooler and or drier seasons!

2.Topical Treatment: Argan oil can be used as a topical ointment to treat skin irritations such as bug bites, rashes and infections.

3.Stretch Marks: Can help prevent and or improve the appearance of stretch marks. The Vitamins A and E within the oil assist in refreshing the skin and moisturizing the area.

4.Razor burn:  A few warm drops lightly massaged into the inflamed area can help soothe and aid in the healing process.

5.Beard oil: To soften a rough scratchy beard, apply a few drops and massage into the hair. Hydrating facial hair is just as important as any other area of the body!

6.Exfoliator: use this as a scrub all over for silky smooth hydrated skin. Another benefit is that the ingredients are inexpensive in comparison to those in stores. Just mix 1 tablespoon of organic brown sugar, combine with a few of drops of Argan oil and rub in circular motion on the desired areas. Great for lips too!

7.Toner: Hydrate and tone at the same time! Enhance your current facial toner with just a few drops of Argan oil to achieve a refreshed dewy glow. Works well with witch hazel or rose water.

8.Hair Care, style and shine.: Many of us are familiar with seeing Argan oil on hair care products. The reason why is because the vitamins make it a great leave-in conditioner option. It hydrates the hair cuticle, enhanced shine and leaves your hair feeling silky. For those who suffer from frizzy hair or stubborn fly-aways, it helps smooth it out!

9.Rejuvenating face masks: Use in your homemade face masks or added into store-bought face masks. Rejuvenate, brighten and achieve a luminous glow!

10.Bathing: Put a generous amount into your bath water and let it hydrate and soothe your skin. It can also be directly added into body wash and body lotion to enrich your skin.

11.Cuticles: A quick fix for dry cuticles or cracked skin, massage a little bit of Argan oil directly onto the area and instantly moisturize the skin. For cracked or dry feet, massage all over and slip on a pair of socks before bed. Wake up to fully nourished soft feet.

12.Makeup: To achieve a dewy, luminous glow after your makeup application, add a drop to your foundation, bronzer or tinted moisturizer.

 

Try our Derma E products enriched with Argan oil. These products are suitable for all skin especially oily ones.
