The Anti Anti-Aging Revolution Is Here

Here’s a good one for you: I have a problem with the very term “anti-aging.” You should, too.

While I revel in physically slowing down the effects of visible time and past abuse on our face and body, the barrage of information surrounding it is increasingly daunting. Confused or not, the last thing we want to do is stop maintaining our youth or our attempts at regaining a more refreshed appearance.

As a child, when I saw my Mom meticulously and religiously applying face cream before going to bed, I can’t imagine she was thinking that she was “anti-aging.” I’m convinced she believed she was making sure she stayed beautiful. And that she did. She wasn’t anti anything; my Mom was pro remaining gorgeous—and that’s what all of us should do, too. Heck, in today’s market, it’s safe to say we can actually wipe 15 or more years off our face without surgery. If that’s not pro-gorgeous, I don’t know what is.

Maintaining a youthful appearance will never be called ‘anti-aging’ again—it is now ‘pro-gorgeous’.

To be clear, I want to be first to begin to change the vocabulary we’re using and thus begin the anti anti-aging revolution: The practice of maintaining a youthful appearance will never be referred to as “anti-aging;” it is now called “pro-gorgeous.” OK, I feel better.

So what can you expect from the “Gorgeous” department in both nowitcounts.com and its sister magazine, CS, going forward? For starters, we’ll look at what’s available and how to use it in skincare, devices, procedures and cellular supplements. Be sure to check out my blog on nowitcounts.com for regular updates and invaluable beauty tips.

Exquis
With more than 25 years of pharmaceutical R&D in transdermal delivery, Dr. Kalidas Kale developed a proprietary liposome technology
for use in Exquis Skincare, where natural
Ayurvedic and Western science meet beautifully.

Sometimes the ABCs of youth retention regimens are so confusing that they’re prescribed out of order or context and are not clear about what product goes before and after their miracle serum or creams. Meaning, what products are we using and in what order do we use them? Taking that a step further, one may realize that true reversal of pigmentation spots, wrinkles and sagging, short of engaging an actual medical procedure, requires an orchestrated calibration of “punch and jab”—the right foods, skincare products, exercise and exfoliation protocols. And the more medication we take, the more water we must drink. (I know it’s not easy, but as I wrote that line, I got up from my chair and just guzzled a 16-ounce glass. Go ahead, you go, too—I’ll wait). Another issue, rapid weight loss and gain (“yo-yoing”) can add another layer of efforts to your beauty protocol. Also, knowing when retinols or AHAs (skin smoothing Glycolic or Lactic acids) need a night off from your repertoire can determine if you can face another day, literally, in public tomorrow. Mind you, most of these skin smoothing over-the-counter treatments can be used safely, effectively and with great results that require no down time.

Hevia HD
Their tagline, “ingredients with a purpose,” delivers! Hevia MD Skin Science’s super
anti-oxidant Red Mangrove Extract is bioactive, stimulating collagen and elastin with The Specialist Potent Repair Serum.

Many of us grew up with luxury brand promises of eternal youth by the likes of Alexandra de Markoff, Elizabeth Arden, Hazel Bishop, Estée Lauder, Helena Rubinstein and, of course, Ponds Cold Cream. But most of these formulas from yesteryear were more external moisturization and marketing than actual science. Sadly, most pre-1980 skin creams simply sat on top of our skin not unlike boot cream. Fast forward three decades and we now have learned to speed up sloughing cycles, inhibit aging molecules, attract internal moisture to our facial skin and infuse active ingredients beyond the topical layers of our skin. Yes—science and research has taught us how to penetrate and restructure the skin on our still pretty faces. Or we can simply burn layers off gently, a little each week and still make a fresh-faced public appearance. We’ve also learned how to avoid photo aging (UV light exposure and direct sunlight) and that certain processed foods and sugars or carbohydrates that turn into sugars degrade our skin and joints (particularly products with white flour and high-fructose corn syrup.

Historically, many of our most potent pro-gorgeous cures and pharmaceuticals stem directly from nature itself: Citric and lactic acids for exfoliation, jojoba, shea butter, avocado, almond oil and aloe for stabilization and moisture. Then there’s the ancient (and still hailed as super-effective) Ayurvedic remedies, which mix precise percentages of “actives” such as turmeric, basil, ginger and mint to penetrate and infiltrate the dermis, also known as skin. Exquis Skincare is the most valid scientific/Ayurvedic source I’ve found to date.

Comfort Zone
Skin Regimen Juvenate-Pro Booster is focused on mature skin with wrinkles and terrific for those subjected to harsh, cold or windy climates. “Longevity Complex” helps eliminate the negative actions of the skins four killers: oxidation, glycation, methylation and inflammation.

Many scientific breakthroughs are rapidly changing what is possible in the age-reversal process, allowing once-thick, leather-like skin to be smoothed, lifted and toned to an even color. Potent ingredients that have survived extreme elements of nature are the basis of these phenomena, such as HeviaMD’s The Specialist Potent Repair Serum comprised of red mangrove extracts that thrive in lengthy sunlight without water. If your “magic bullet” requires world-class research, luxury presentation and proven efficacy, then La Prairie’s launch of Cellular Swiss Ice Crystal Collection (a serious multi-tasker) is something you’ll definitely want to take notice of. Imagine a radiant flower blooming in the middle of a Swiss Alps ice storm. Well, after decades of microscopic study, that plant’s very DNA has been dissected to stability and infused into a luxurious dry oil serum and luxury cream that works and feels like nothing else you’ve tried. This is an indulgence with a visible payoff that will make any ice princess worth her salt jealous. I promise.

La Prairie
Brand new and right now: Cellular Swiss Ice Crystal Collection. “Under the ice, time stands still” with Swiss snow algae. A recent scientific breakthrough from La Prairie.

Who can forget Faye Dunaway’s seminal portrayal of Joan Crawford in Mommie Dearest? The 4:15 a.m. jog (chasing her assistant in an 8 mph Rolls Royce through Brentwood, CA), facial ice baths and chin lifting bands. Well, although that type of dedication to eternal youth may seem extreme—but, is it, really? Remember, it was depicting a timeless Hollywood icon in the latter stages of her fabled career.

We can, however, refine Ms. Crawford’s efforts with better products in less time. One of my favorites steps to base pro-gorgeousness is today’s retinoids, AHAs (acids), micro-derm scrubs and lifting devices.

In order for our expensive serums, creams and night treatments to be maximized, sometimes we have to exfoliate (gently remove) topical layers of dead skin—or speed up the natural process, which slows down significantly at ages 30, 40, 50 and some people more than others. There’s a reason why antique furniture is stripped down to the wood—or minimally, lightly sanded before refreshing with a coat of lacquer. The finish is thick, bumpy and dull, having been exposed to harsh cleaners, light bulbs, sunlight, spill rings and extreme, seasonal temperatures that have baked in those imperfections. I say, oh yes, get rid of that crusty layer.

 

Naturally, organically or scientifically, two brands offer stellar exfoliation results. Rhonda Allison is a very large line and relies on professional recommendation and evaluation. Its Retinol Supreme and Skin Smoothing Gel provides an instant flaking of wrinkles, oh-so-gently. I was rubbing off expired skin from my crow’s feet in 48 hours without a trace of irritation. If you’re super sensitive or just want a more measured, bioactive approach then I’d highly recommend [ comfort zone ]. Its Italian Skin Regimen lineup is impressive, luxe, and effective.
Comfort Zone’s decades of science and sustainability are intended to work from the inside out “finding the most powerful ingredients and delivering the most effective results.” I strongly suggest watching Comfort Zone’s US growth as the brand becomes a staple to those pro-gorgeous insiders. Night Renewer provided a gentle, but noticeable exfoliation on my forehead wrinkles thus allowing me to extend my Botox (yes, Botox) for a few more months.

As we head into spring, a truly healthy beauty—or pro-gorgeous—regimen is the new black. We all know that today 60 is the new 40-something and regenerating is the red-hot trend. At least we can now—finally—put to rest that negative sounding term behind the billion-dollar business known internationally as anti-aging. Let’s positively and happily usher in the era of living a pro-gorgeous life. Who’s with me?

  18. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the captial of Israel. Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible.

    The Jewish people deny Jesus as their Messiah and have stated that their Messiah has been identified and is waiting to be revealed. They say this man will rule the world under a one world religion called “spiritualism”.

    They even printed a coin to raise money for the Temple with Donald Trumps face on the front and with king Cyrus'(who built the second Temple) behind him. On the back of the coin is an image of the third Temple.

    The Bible says this false Messiah who seats himself in the Third Temple will be thee antichrist that will bring about the Great Tribulation, though the Jewish people believe he will bring about world peace. It will be a false peace for a period of time. You can watch interviews of Jewish Rabbi’s in Israel speaking of these things. They have their plans set in place. It is only years away!

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them. This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically Revelation 13:16-18:

    He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency. RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency. It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it! We must grow strong in Jesus. AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we need two key things. One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast.
