Nutracine Skin by Bunny Hyde

Nutracine sent me over their newest line to try. Over the last two months, I’ve been using their complete system, and I’ve grown to really love the line. Products that I can’t live without: the #4 Vitamin C Serum, the #456 Combination Cream, and the #2 Purifying Toner with Multi-Hydroxy Acids.

After one night (YES, ONE) of the #4 Vitamin C Serum, I woke up and my skin was completely resurfaced. My red spots had diminished and my face had a dewy glow.

The #356 Combination Cream promises to  do “3 in 1: Exfoliate, Brighten, and Moisturize”—and it does all three!  It exfoliates SO much that any dead skin cells roll away. I like to apply it as a night cream because I wake up with super bright, glowing, exfoliated skin.

After a night with Nutracine, my favorite daytime CC cream (YSL Light Creator) effortlessly blended onto my skin, and the glow was beautiful. Prior to using the Nutracine system, my foundation (which is quite expensive) looked flaky and dull on my skin. Now, my skin is glowing (I can’t say this word enough!)  and dewy, with no flakes or rough patches.

My favorite part about the system is that even after layering on all of the products, this glow shines through. The #1 Clarifying Cleanser followed by #2 Purifying Toner REALLY cleaned my skin and provided a base for the other products.

In the daytime, I moisturized with the #18 Intensive Wrinkle Reduction Cream, which is full of peptides that promise to not only diminish the depth of wrinkles, but to erase stretch marks as well. I use this as a spot treatment on my frown lines and I like how creamy it is. The #8 Retinal Cream is also moisturizing, and not too thick like others on the market.

The #11 Advanced Lip+Eye Concentrate made it really easy to remember to moisturizer my lips (I always forget this step before bed.) Every morning my lips felt super smooth and a bit poutier.

Lastly, the #7 Sunscreen (SPF 30) was so great (blendable, light, moisturizing) that I used it in Florida over my entire body.

6 steps to serious anti-ageing skincare ~ with visible results in 2 months by Pretty Peach Blossom

Most cosmetic products are now sold to us with the ideology of being the next miracle cream, to deliver  ever lasting youth. Anti-ageing is big buisness even though more often than not these adverts are usually gimmicky, or only provide short term results.

Even I have been drawn into the hype, so I decided to pack all my organic green skincare products and in the name of research I dived in head first to try and discover the creamedelacream of anti-ageing beauty portions. 

 

My first find is by no means a free from, if anything, I was shocked by the ingredients list. I cannot remember the last time I used a facial cleanser with sodium laureth sulfate, it does come with the expected tightening of the skin etc. Another big shocker was the list of parabens, I think for most green skincare enthusiast this is a deal breaker, I am not sure how I feel about it myself. I have to say that a good list of ingredients is also contained in these products but needed to get the elephant out of the way before we get started. For more information you can read more about Nutracine doctor directed skincare here. 

 

Nutracine is a high intensity skincare treatment only to be used for three months then immediately discontinued, followed on by a maintenance system of your choice like your current regime or one recommend by nutracine. In the time you use this treatment it is recommended you do not use any makeup, I see you roll your eyes, but its a choice I decided to stick to for the sake of good skin health. This rule can be broken only on special occasions no more than twice month.  This is scientific stuff the curators do not want any reaction between chemical compounds hence the advice.

This routine consists of cleanse and tone as expected, then vitamin C which must be left to sink into the dermal before applying any other products. 

The fourth step is the moisturiser which is a choice of two and can be used alternatively a Collagen hydrating formula and  an exfoliating brightening moisturiser. This is then followed by either a retinol cream or intensive wrinkle reduction cream with peptide complex, these two are power houses in helping to diminish major wrinkles. I will test them on stretch marks and feed back that will be a true test as I have  serious issues on my tummy area. 

Since I am now 34 years of age I started to see fine lines or what I like to call laughter lines, around my eyes and mouth. I kid you not three weeks of using this stuff I can laugh and smile all I want with no signs of lines or wrinkles. This stuff needs commitment and it’s a hard core targeted treatment. I am going to do all I can to avoid invasive procedures and this is my first step. 

There is no magic pill to flawless skin just commitment and hard work like anything else. 

Do not forget sunscreen this is just as important as the skincare  products used. The one provided in the kit I received has titanium dioxide 5.20% and zinc oxide 1.10% as active ingredients. 

Just to be clear even though I don’t have serious wrinkle issues I had hyperpigmentation due to frequent hormonal breaks outs, this issue has resolved significantly. If I didn’t have oily skin I would say I could confidently rock no makeup for the rest of the year. 

So the conclusion is this skincare treatment works and is the real deal no doubt, however, we live in a world where consumers are well educated about ingredients and what is good for them. And it is up to you as an  individual whether you are willing to over look some of the ingredients in most prescriptions medicine, or remain a green bunny. I am on the fence and I am not 💯 percent committed to going green with my skincare as yet. Furthermore, I can honestly say I am yet to find natural beauty products that give me excellent results such as this one. 

I think this treatment can easily be reproduced using the products you have in your skincare cabinet without using prescription products, maybe without the exact same results but close. 

Matrixyl

Last month we blogged about the importance of Collagen, this month we want to let you know how Matrixyl is a key ingredient in stimulating collagen production?

 

Matrixyl is part of the pentapetide family. Known as an amino acid that penetrates through the outer layer of your skin. Reaching the fibroblast cells to stimulate collagen production. Collagen is the protein necessary to prevent fine lines and wrinkles by maintaining elasticity and tone.

 

As we get older we produce less collagen. Therefore, we need Matrixyl (amino acid) to stimulate collagen production and give us that young and youthful glow.

 

Nutracine has several products with Matrixyl and collagen that should be used twice daily:

Combination Cream, Collagen Retinyl Cream, Collagen Cream for Dry Skin,

Advanced Lip and Eye Concentrate, Lip and Eye Cream for Dry Skin, Intensive Wrinkle Reduction,

Is it important to wash your face regularly?

It’s of the utmost importance to wash your face faithfully twice a day, we will assume you want the Best to keep you looking and staying young! Keeping your skin clean and preventing your pores from build up with dirt and bacteria that leads to acne and inflammation, can be challenging.

It’s important to cleanse before retiring for the night and first thing in the morning. The question is… what do you use?

…Hand soap

…Facial wash

…Sonic cleanser tools

…Facial masks

Obviously, hand soap is not for your face. The skin on our face and neck are the most delicate parts. They are thinner than any other part of our body.

Sonic cleanser tools and facial masks should only be used intermittently.  Facial masks, whether you use “at home application” or visit with your esthetician, they too should also be done in moderation, once a month or every three to six months. These products used too often can be abrasive, damage skin and become irritants causing rash and sensitivity.

That leaves us with a good facial wash. Which brings us to our original question, “Did You Really Get All Your Makeup Off?”

(D.J. Owen a current Nutracine User)

“Ever since I began using Nutracine Clarifying Cleanser, 8 years ago, …that’s a Yes! It does take off all your makeup! I have found Nutracine to be a highly effective facial wash for normal and sensitive skin. As a foamy cleanser it is safe to use as often as twice daily. The bonus for me is, it’s reasonably priced!

 

 

 

 

Collagen and Nutracine

Doctors have said, as we get older we lose 1% of collagen per year after we reach the age of 20. It is important to support and keep your skin healthy with Collagen and elastin, which keeps our skin supple, firm and strong. Coupled with Vitamin C these proteins provide nearly 25% of the body’s protein.

 

We all know Collagen is essential for a youthful appearance because it can take years off your skin. Collagen is the main structural protein found in skin. Together with Elastin and Vitamin C, research shows they play a vital role to fight fine lines, smooth out wrinkles and protect us from the sun’s harmful UV rays.

 

Nutracine Collagen Retinyl, Nutracine Collagen for Dry Skin, Nutracine Intensive Wrinkle and Nutracine Vitamin C have proven to erase fine lines, smooth out wrinkles and age spots, attributed to the harmful UV rays – induced by photo damage.

 

Support your skincare regime by eating healthy unprocessed foods rich in collagen, elastin and Vitamin C.   Foods that is rich in antioxidants – fresh fruits and vegetables like dark greens, broccoli, kale, sweet potatoes, dark berries, guava, kiwi fruit. Also foods rich in amino acids, like eggs, animal protein (which have all the essential amino acids), beans and seeds; good fats like almonds, walnuts and pecans. Add to that the super food Avocado, known to be rich in nearly 20 vitamins and minerals.

Pigmentation

Being that our skin in our biggest Organ, there are many ways that skin can be affected…and pigmentation happens to be an issue for many people. Your skin tone can be affected by many influences. Sun damage, acne scars, aging, etc…

Skin gets its color mainly from melanin, a pigment produced by melanocyte cells in the skin. The darker the skin tone, the more melanin the skin contains. Freckles in addition to  beauty marks may indicate a higher concentration of the pigment in certain parts of the skin.

Pigmentation means coloring. Skin pigmentation disorders affect the color of your skin. Your skin gets its color from a pigment called melanin. Special cells in the skin make melanin. When these cells become damaged or unhealthy, it affects melanin production. Below are before & After’s of Nutracine Skin Care systems.

Please inquire for our skin care system that diminishes and corrects pigmentation problems.
