Skin Benefits of Berries

The natural properties of berries provide many benefits for your skin’s health. They protect the elastin (a skin protein that gives your skin the ability to stretch and snap back into place) of your skin from being broken down.

When applied to the skin as a mask, berries can help to moisturize your skin. Keeping your skin moist during the dry, cold winter months is essential to healthy skin.

Other benefits of these brightly colored super fruits include natural skin brightening and protection against skin damage. Berries are useful as both exfoliants and peels.

Some of our favorite berry skin products include Rhonda Allison’s Grape Seed Hydrating Serum, Berry Wine Lotion, Antioxidant Complex Serum, Brightening Scrub, and Skin Brightening Cleanser.

Microneedling and Collagen

As you age, your skin loses elasticity. This is due to a decrease in your body’s production of collagen, hyaluronic acid, and elastin. Unfortunately, we begin to lose collagen at 26 years of age. Other factors that speed up the loss of collagen include smoking, high sugar foods, and sunlight. As your body produces less collagen, signs of aging occur such as wrinkles, fine lines, and loss of firmness.

The good news is that collagen is available for more than just plumping your lips. Collagen, a protein, adds strength and structure to your skin. Adding collagen products to your skincare regimen can help reduce wrinkles and lines.

Follow us as we explore ways to boost your body’s collagen.

Microneedling

Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a cosmetic procedure that repeatedly punctures the skin’s surface with very small, sterile needles. This minimally invasive process induces collagen production, thus breathing new life into your skin. Microneedling is typically for facial treatments and can help with scarring, wrinkles, and large pores.

DiDoria MedSpa does offer this service! To find out more about microneedling, give us a call or stop in!

Collagen in Your Diet

Collagen can be ingested. There are many supplements that can be taken to incorporate collagen into your daily vitamin regimen.

You can also take supplements that promote collagen production in your body. These include green tea, vitamin C, and functional keratin. Creams that contain these ingredients also help stimulate collagen production when applied to your skin. A diet rich in vitamin C and beta-carotene can also aid in collagen production.

Be sure to stop by the spa to purchase one of our favorite products, Yana by Image Skincare. Yana is a drinkable collagen that helps support collagen production.

You can also head over to Whole or Nothing’s Blog to find out more about a collagen promoting diet in her latest post!

As you age, your skin loses elasticity. This is due to a decrease in your body’s production of collagen, hyaluronic acid, and elastin. Unfortunately, you begin to lose collagen in your early to mid 20s. Other factors that speed up the loss of collagen include smoking, high sugar foods, and sunlight. As your body produces less collagen, signs of aging occur such as wrinkles, fine lines, and loss of firmness.

The good news is that collagen is available for more than just plumping your lips. Collagen, a protein, adds strength and structure to your skin. Adding collagen or collagen-boosting products to your skincare regimen can help reduce wrinkles and lines.

Follow us as we explore ways to boost your body’s collagen.

Collagen Skincare

The simplest way to boost your body’s collagen is to apply collagen to your skin’s surface. The best time to apply any product to your skin, including collagen, is after an enzyme peel or a microdermabrasion, as the skin is receptive to increased absorption.

There are also products to help boost collagen or prevent loss of collagen in your skin. Some of our favorites are Rhonda Allison’s C-Stem Cell, DermaMed’s Antiox-C Serum, and Revision’s Nectifirm. Head over to our products tab to find out how you can order these products or stop by and see us!

Anti-Aging Benefits of Pumpkin

We all know that pumpkin is the main ingredient we need to make some delicious pie, bread, and other foodstuffs, however, what many people do not know is that there are also many benefits to using pumpkin based products for treating your skin and hair.

Anti-Aging benefits:

Pumpkin provides anti-aging benefits due to the presence of antioxidants such as Vitamin C, Flavonoids and phytonutrients. These antioxidants neutralize free radicals in our body and prevent them from causing damage to our cells. Doing this reduces the signs of premature aging such as fine lines, wrinkles and skin discoloration.

Additionally, the Vitamin C present in pumpkin aids in the production of collagen, a natural occurring protein in our skin that provides strength and elasticity to our skin.
