Style Apothecary Is Feeling Swell!

If you’re looking for a mid-week pick-me-up, treat yourself to a little luxury with Swell™ l oceanic cooling mask!imageThis nourishing and revitalizing hydrating mask infuses the skin with firming/antioxidant/anti-aging benefits while also helping to strengthen and improve skin tone. 

Enriched with Algae Extract, vitamin rich Caviar Extract and mineral rich Pearl Powder, Swell™ evokes a sense of calm while you think back to the cooling ocean breeze and quiet summer nights of months past.This is your solution to undo everyday stress! 

But you don’t have to take our word for it. Check out this recent review from Style Apothecary. She says … 

"WOW, is my first impression. As you can see from the image, I got a small sample of Swell sent to me and I got 2 applications out of it. This mask is AMAZING, it feels great and is so calming. It is perfect for de-stressing and relaxing. The mask has a menthol minty coolness to it. I applied it with a fan brush, a thin layer and left on for about 15 minutes, it never really dried but became a little gummy or should I say tacky. After I applied I just went and say and read a magazine with the television on and just chilled. It is so nice to just put your feel up but add in the mask and like Sircuit describes this is meant to be a luxury, it feels so nice on my skin and the cooling sensation made my skin feel invigorated. It also felt like it tightened my skin too. I removed with a warm face cloth then went ahead and applied my night time moisturizer. I just felt like the next day my skin looked and felt great. It seems to be like I said a little tighter, either way, I felt good about it and am very pleased with it. I can’t go into too much more detail as I only used 2x but I can tell you this is well worth checking into! :)"

The 3 Things You Should Know About Antioxidants

Originally Featured On Allure.com; Written By Brooke Le Poer Trench

Jeannette Graf, an assistant clinical professor of dermatology at Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York City, not only helped pioneer studies on peptides, she’s also been researching the power of antioxidants for two decades. Here, the author of Stop Aging, Start Living (Three Rivers Press) explains how to use the latter to dodge the worst damage.

OVERINDULGE

"For the best protection, wear a formula with several antioxidants. Studies show they work together, becoming more powerful when they’re combined than when they are alone. For instance, lycopene is more potent than beta-carotene and lutein, but all three together are significantly stronger still."

MAKE IT QUICK

"Wearing a sunscreen or moisturizer with antioxidants is fine, but I prefer serums, which penetrate faster than creams when applied to bare skin. The strongest concentrations are usually the most stable, so look for one in a dark or opaque bottle. A change in color, smell, or texture of the product can mean the antioxidants have oxidized and become useless." Try Sircuit Addict™+ l firming anti-aging serum that contains more than 12 potent and powerful antioxidants!

GO GREEN

"Much of the research into antioxidants now is in marine algae, which thrive in the harshest environments on earth. We’re going to see very potent combinations of different types of algae for skin in the near future." Try Swell™ l oceanic cooling mask (1.3 oz. l $75.00) which contains both algae and caviar extracts!

Technology Decoder: Telomeres and Anti-Aging

When asked to describe aging skin, generally the phrases “wrinkled”, “thin-skin”, or “sagging” are the first to be used. Really, the phrases we should think of first include: damaged strands of DNA, misshapen cells, or damaged chromosomes … the fact is that the aging process begins on a cellular level. One key discovery is the understanding of telomeres, and how they play a key role in understanding the aging process. 

Before we go too in-depth about what a telomere is… let’s first review some basics of biology:

  1. Our bodies are made of cells. 
  2. Cells must divide and replicate themselves in order for us to heal, reproduce, and survive. 
  3. Cells house our Chromosomes, which are made up of strands of our DNA which stores our genetic information, and determines our genetic outcomes (like our hair color, eye color, etc). 
  4. DNA strands have ends to them, which are called telomeres. 
  5. Telomeres protect the integrity of our DNA when a cell divides. 

A little more about telomeres:

Telomeres were first discovered in the early 1970’s when scientists recognized that chromosomes could not completely replicate their ends. It was almost as if there was a “cap” at the end of the DNA strand. Research would continue to show that these “caps” were made of a separate DNA sequence that varied from the rest of the DNA strand. It was noted that each time a cell divided, the ends (the telomeres) became shorter until eventually the ends diminished, and the DNA would not replicate correctly, and eventually the cell would die.  

A fantastic analogy to describe a telomere came from a video by the Smithsonian Channel called “Decoding Immortality” (click here to view it!). In this video, Professor Elizabeth Blackburn (who has extensively studied telomeres, and won a Nobel Prize for her findings) describes how the strand of DNA and the telomere is similar to a shoelace. Think about how the shoelace is woven together with different threads, and is capped at the end with a small plastic piece. In this scenario, the shoelace represents the DNA, and the plastic end represents the telomere. If you were to trim the plastic end, eventually the shoelace would become unraveled, becoming unusable. The same applies to our DNA and our telomeres. Once the telomere shortens to the point of not existing, the Cell can’t replicate correctly, and is no longer usable. In short …the length of the telomere will determine how long your cells will live. 

Why is this important for your skin?

So this is important for many reasons… but when it comes to prolonging the aging process of the skin, it is important to use products that don’t just address the look of the skin. It is arguable more important to think about preserving and protecting the DNA of the cells. And protecting the telomeres could be the key to preserving a youthful complexion. 

Although telomere shortening is a normal part of the aging process, it doesn’t mean you can’t do your best to slow the process down. Oxidative stress, UV exposure, and inflammation can speed up the process of cellular turnover that result in telomere shortening. 

So … protecting the skin from the sun with a physical sun barrier like Zinc Oxide; using topical ingredients that are rich in anti-oxidants (like Spin Trap) or a retinoid (we recommend an encapsulated retinaldehyde); and optimizing the skin’s Vitamin D activity (Chronocycline® is the ingredient to look for) will be your best defense against telomere shortening.

SIRCUIT® SUMMER SKIN SOLUTIONS: DOUBLE-UP

For added protection for your face, neck & chest area, layer a serum containing vitamin C under your sunscreen (we suggest Sircuit Weapon™+ l 10% vitamin C therapy serum). Not only will it help to prevent sun damage, it also helps to address dehydration and wrinkles! image

For an extra boost, try a serum or sunscreen that also contains vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant that helps to speed healing.

Did you know? Sol-Avert™ l ultimate UV defense contains both the Chirally Correct form of vitamin E, and the ingredient L-Ergothioneine; a natural antioxidant and amino acid that helps prevent damage caused by UV radiation, recycles Vitamin C, and inhibits Tyrosinase (i.e. helps to prevent the formation of hyper-pigmentation)? This is hands down our “go-to” daily sunscreen!!

Too Much of a Good Thing?

How Much Should You Use? How Often Should You Use It? We get these questions a lot, so we thought we would break it down for you.imageBecause of SIRCUIT®’s extensive use of Chiral technology all of our products are VERY concentrated. This is important to understand because you will only need to use a VERY small amount of product to see results. In fact in many cases, this would be about half of what you would normally use from other skincare lines that you’ve tried. 

We like to tell our customers that “a glass can only hold so much water” so start with a very small amount, and you can always add a little more to build from there. You may not realize this but overuse can also affect the skin’s natural balance and cause a variety of reactions in the skin … which defeats the purpose!

Here is a quick reference for each type of SIRCUIT® product, with suggestions for application noted:

  • Cleansers & Scrub - 1 pump (this will give you enough for your face, neck & chest area).
  • Serums - 3-4 small drops from the dropper (about 1/8 of a dropper, NOT a full dropper). For best application, blend the serum in the palms of your hand and press into your face. Then wipe any leftover residue onto the tops of your hands, for an anti-aging hand treatment.
  • Hydrating Mists - 2 pumps. For best results, spray directly into hands and press into face.
  • Eye Crèmes/Gel - Gently tap the pump so that you get about . of a pump, it should be about the size of the tip of a ball-point pen which is enough for both eyes (1 full pump is WAY too much). For best results, eye products should NOT be applied near the lash line. Instead, tap gently starting about 1 in. below your lower lash line, and just below your brow line.
  • Moisturizers - 1 pump for Day Care or Cool Aid. With all moisturizers in a jar, scoop a small pea sized amount. Apply one dot to your forehead, one dot to your chin, and 1 dot to each cheek and blend into the skin gently using upward motions.
  • Masks & Peels - Scoop a small pea sized amount. Should be enough for a thin, even layer across face (avoiding eye area & mouth).

Since SIRCUIT® products are pure & more concentrated then you might be currently using, we recommend that you start slowly with each product. 

For best results, start with the SIRCUIT® cleanser and moisturizer that suits your skin type, which will help to balance and improve the skin condition. From there, you can begin to add serums and treatments over time that will address more specific skin concerns. Using more than 1 serum at a single application is never recommended for a customer just starting out with SIRCUIT®. What we do recommend is that you use only 1 serum, once a day to start, and then over time they can introduce another serum into their daily regimen. If you have VERY sensitive skin, we suggest that you start by applying their serum every other day for the first week, then increase to using it once a day from there.

Let us know how you’re doing or if you have any questions. We love your feedback!
