TimeWise Repair® Volu-Fill™ Deep Wrinkle Filler

TimeWise Repair® Volu-Fill™ Deep Wrinkle Filler

Targeted formula immediately fills in deep wrinkles and helps improve their appearance over time.
  • 100% of women showed an improvement in the appearance of wrinkle severity.*
  • Significantly impacts the appearance of all six wrinkle zones.**
  • Deep wrinkles appear to be visibly plumped. 
  • Deep wrinkles are targeted by retinol.
  • Won’t flake or ball up. Dries to an invisible finish

How It Works

While the TimeWise Repair® regimen targets the multiple signs of advanced skin aging, TimeWise Repair® Volu-Fill™ Deep Wrinkle Filler has a single focus – to give deep wrinkles the extra attention they need.
  • Deep wrinkle filler immediately fills in deep wrinkles. Encapsulated hyaluronic acid and flexible elastomers work together to effectively blur the appearance of wrinkles so you look more youthful.
    • The encapsulated hyaluronic acid stays where it's put – within deep wrinkles and lines – to fill in empty spaces and create a more uniform, even surface.
  • Flexible elastomers are special microscopic fibers that provide a foundation for the encapsulated hyaluronic acid so it can have the most dramatic effect. The key word is "flexible," so you don't have to worry about making facial expressions or having that frozen-face look.
  • It visibly plumps the appearance of deep wrinkles. Encapsulated hyaluronic acid acts as a moisture magnet, attracting skin moisture to help deep wrinkles look visibly plumped.
  • Deep wrinkles are targeted by retinol, helping to minimize their appearance over time.
TimeWise Repair® Volu-Fill™ Deep Wrinkle Filler significantly impacts the appearance of all six wrinkle zones
  • Forehead creases
  • Between-the-brow creases
  • Crow’s-feet
  • Smile lines
  • Vertical lip lines
  • Marionette lines
    Application Tips
    • Using the precision applicator, apply the cream directly to wrinkles and gently pat in place with fingertips.
    • Wait a few minutes before applying moisturizer.
    • For daytime use, be sure to finish with a sunscreen product. While daily and effective sun protection is an essential part of any skin care program, it is especially critical when using a product that contains retinol.
    • The formula was designed to disappear into skin without leaving a trace, so it’s perfect for all skin tones, from light to deep bronze.

Failed to mention Truth about Sunscreen!

Iv been doing some research on a few sunscreen products including Mary Kay. From what I have learned some companies could afford to be more open and specific about this information. I'm guessing a lot of people are using these products thinking the are being protected when it lost its protecting qualities already! Finding this can be kind of disappointing, but when you know better you can do better!
 So here is what ive learned so far...

Does Sunscreen expire? YES! 

The molecules in suntan lotion (such as homosalate and octyl salicylate) block the penetration of UV radiation by acting as filters and absorbing and reflecting high energy UV. Over time these molecules break down and lose effectiveness, kind of like expired cold medicine or vitamins. ALSO i know some people are very anti anything "Paraben" and that's fine. BUT if you insist on getting these products make sure you are using up your paraben free products faster!

What is a Paraben? 

Parabens are antifungal agents that are used as preservatives in foods, pharmaceuticals and skin care products. In fact, parabens are the most widely used preservatives in the cosmetics industry. They're used in makeup, hair care products, moisturizers and shaving products. There are several types of parabens, the most common being methylparaben, probylparaben and butylparaben.

How do you know when it's expired?

Some will have expiration dates printed on them. However, most sunscreens do not have "Expiration" dates printed on them. Instead "lot numbers" can be used to determine the date the product was "manufactured"and typically will say they are good for 3 years from manufacture date...

BUT what isn't clear is that the 3 year window is only good as long as the product is not opened and must be kept at consistent cool to warm at max temperatures. Once that product is opened, for the average SPF containing products *that typically do have some kind of paraben in it* then starts counting down 6 months ahead of protecting use. For products without Paraben less the loss of protection can brake down even faster. (still trying to research a more specific number)

`For Coppertone products, the first character of the lot code represents the year of manufacture (7=2007, etc). The second character is a bit more involved. It will tell you the month of manufacture using this code: A=Jan, B=Feb, C=Mar, D=Apr, E=May, but then G=June, H=July, J=Aug, K=Sept, M=Oct, N=Nov, and P=Dec.
Per Scherring-Plough (the mfr of Coppertone) their SPF sunscreens have a shelf life of 3 years from the date of manufacture.

`For Banana Boat products, the first 2 digits of the code represent the year it was made (07=2007, etc.) and the next 3 digits represent the day of the year (32=Feb 1st, 365=Dec 31st, etc). They also state a shelf life of 3 years.

`For Exp and Manufacture code info on Mary Kay Products, visit a earlier Blog posting i did specifically on How to read Mary Kay's ... BTW on anything with SPF Mary Kay will straight add a Expiration date so there is no guessing games beause they know SPF is lost much faster then other containing ingredeants of other types of skin products :)

 Where to look for both EXPiration and or Manufacture codes

So what can you do to make sure you are getting the most of your product?

Pay attention and get a Sharpie!! If you have any current products you cant remember when you got and or more importantly, Opened it. might want to scratch it and get somthing new. Then once you have purchaced product you have first looked up its manufacture date (unless it clearly lists a straight up EXP date) As soon as you open it, either write that date opened and or write the 6 months following date straight on the product!

So don't be miss lead. 3 years from manufacture is only its unopened shelf life! 

Hope this helps! Any other info or questions please feel free to comment. Im not a specialist just like to try and do my homework best i can and share what i learn :0)

7 Easy Ways to Look Younger

Who doesn't want to look younger??? Beside using your Mary Kay routine on a regular... Although you can’t turn back time, there are a few extra tricks that can make you look like you did!

1. Brighten your smile

 A bright white smile is one of the best and easiest ways to knock years off. It’s well documented that as you age, your teeth begin to yellow - so it’s only natural that a bright smile will will help you to look younger. White teeth can not only make you look five years younger. Did you know wearing a RED LIPs (click HERE for Mary Kay colors in RED )actually gives the illusion to whiter teeth? also if you don't want to spend big bucks at the dentists or on some of those whiting strips, try one of these home remedies:

Option #1: Hydrogen Peroxide and Baking Soda Teeth Whitener “Toothpaste”

What You’ll Need:
  • Hydrogen Peroxide
  • Baking Soda
  • Toothbrush (you can use the toothbrush you’re currently using)
  • Water
  • Small bowl
  1. Wet your toothbrush under the faucet.
  2. Pour about 1 ounce of hydrogen peroxide on your damp toothbrush bristles.
  3. Pour about a half ounce of baking soda into a small bowl. Dip your toothbrush in the baking soda.
  4. Brush your teeth for 2 minutes using this toothbrush like you normally would brush your teeth. The hydrogen peroxide/baking soda mixture should quickly react with the water on your toothbrush to form a gritty paste. Pay special attention to the teeth in the front of your mouth that show when you smile. Do not swallow the mixture.
  5. Rinse your mouth out with lukewarm water and make sure you completely rinse out your toothbrush with water.
  6. Repeat this process only once every four months since the baking soda/peroxide mixture can be too abrasive on your teeth if used more frequently.
Option #2: Lemon and Salt Teeth Whitener “Toothpaste”

What You’ll Need:
  • 1 teaspoon of lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon of table salt (Morton Iodized Salt )
  • Toothbrush (you can use the toothbrush your currently using)
  • Water
  • Small bowl
  1. Pour 1 teaspoon of lemon juice and 1 teaspoon of table salt into a small bowl and mix together.
  2. Wet your toothbrush and then dip into the mixture.
  3. Brush your teeth for 2 minutes using this toothbrush like you normally would brush your teeth. Pay special attention to the teeth that show when you smile. Make sure to avoid swallowing the mixture.
  4. Rinse your mouth out with lukewarm water and rinse out your toothbrush with water.
aOption #3: Lemon and Salt Teeth Whitener “Mouthwash”

What You’ll Need:
  • 1 ounce of lemon juice (Reallemon 100% Lemon Juice from Concentrate
  • 1.5 teaspoons of table salt ( Morton Iodized Salt
  • Small cup
  • Water
  1. Pour 1 ounce of lemon juice and 1.5 ounces of table salt into a small cup and mix thoroughly.
  2. Swish the mixture around in your mouth for 30 seconds like you normally would mouthwash and then spit it out. Do not swallow the mixture.
  3. If desired, rinse your mouth out with water.

2. Make that hair shine!

 As we age, our hair actually becomes more porous, which not only causes it to be less manageable, but more dull. Making that head of hair shine is a simple, inexpensive way to help turn back the clock. In fact, you may not even have to spend a dime. You can actually get that shiny mane from a product that you probably already have in your kitchen – vinegar! To shine your hair with vinegar, mix one part water with three parts vinegar and apply liberally to your hair. Make sure to massage it in to get the roots. Let the mixture sit for about 10 minutes and then rinse it out and shampoo/ condition as normal

3. Find the perfect bra

 If you haven’t been bra shopping in a while, it is very possible that you may actually be wearing the wrong size. Experts actually estimate that nearly 80 percent of all women are not wearing their correct size, which can not only make you look older and heavier, but can even cause shoulder or back pain. You can get a free bra fitting at numerous stores including Kohl’s, Macy’s, Lan Bryant and Victoria’s Secret, but if you don’t feel comfortable doing so, check out Nordstrom’s guide to measuring yourself. You can easily find a good quality bra for under $50 if you’re watching those sales! New Bra to look a few years younger? Yes, please

4. Loosen your hair

 If you tend to pull your hair back in a tight ponytail or bun, it may be time to rethink that look! Tight hair pulled off of your face can instantly draw attention to those crows feet and fine lines that you’re trying to hide. beside pulling on the skin and stretching it out! Instead, try a playful, loose wave. Flowing hair that has a lot of movement to it is an easy (and free) way to create a more youthful appearance. Whatever you do, avoid hair that is stiff and doesn’t move, which will age you instantly

5. Switch from lipstick to gloss

 As we age, our lips start to lose their fullness — and don’t get me started on those little lines and wrinkles that start forming around the mouth! This makes it easier for lipstick to bleed, and lipstick bleeding into those lines is an instant tell of a woman’s age. Instead, swap that lipstick for gloss. or pop a gloss on top! A light, shiny gloss can instantly make lips look fuller and make you look younger. Mary Kay has ton to pick from Check it out HERE!
or Click pick for other tips on applying lip color for your lip size




6. Eat for radiance

 It may not be instant gratification, but eating certain foods can help skin stay radiant, tight and more youthful. One of the best vitamins to build collagen is Vitamin C, which can be found in citrus fruits such as grapefruit and lemons. Other key components to youthful skin are beta-carotene and lutein, which can help protect the skin from wrinkles and promote cell turnover, leading to smoother, younger-looking skin. These are found in foods such as sweet potatoes (yum!), spinach, kale, carrots, and squash. Also Mary Kay Microdermabration a cheaper and effective way to make sure your shedding those dead skin sells! click HERE for more info on what it can do for you!

7. Have your eyebrows professionally done

 A clean, well groomed eyebrow can create an instant eyelift, and you might be surprised to see just how much younger you look after cleaning up and filling in your brows. Click HERE for how to and products Mary Kay has to offer to keep your Brows in check!

As Always SPF and a regular routine morning and night is going to be your best bet at preventing any future signs of aging! and not all skin is the same! have questions about what you may need to stay looking young? Just ask! Message me anytime on my Facebook Page:

Winter Dry Skin PREVENTION!

 <3 While your here Please FOLLOW my Blog! <3

With winter around the corner, dry skin could be coming! In its worst form it can start itching and get flaky! Also dry skin causes wrinkles!! what can you do to keep your skin soft and supple? Keeping your skin moisturized during the cold winter months. It takes work, But if you’re willing to stick to a regular routine, it can be done, no matter how brittle your skin or brutal the weather.

For the Face.
Winter-proofing your face can be tricky, depending on what type of skin you have. Like your body avoid really hot water when washing your face, and use a mild, non-drying cream cleanser. Always pat dry and apply moisturizer after washing.
(even if you have oily skin! that could actually be why you have oily skin your body is compensating for lack of moisture)
Dry skin is one of the main causes of aging! WRINKLES!! Keep your skin supple and you will help keep the look of wrinkly/aging skin at bay ~
Be careful not to use too much foundation, and opt for light, creamy formulas. Combining your base with a bit of moisturizer is also a good trick and can help prevent caking and flaking.

Drink  MORE water! 
Make sure you drink a lot of water even when its winters and you are not particularly thirsty. Water brings the change from within and prevents dehydration which shows on your skin eventually. Dry lips is also the first sigh on dehydration~ And don’t forget about your lips! Be sure to apply balm regularly to protect against harsh cold winds also one with SPF just because its cold out doesn't stop the sun from sharing its raise!

For the Body. No More Hot Steaming Showers. This sucks, I know— they feel so good, especially on a cold day, but hot water strips your skin of much needed natural moisture.  If you really can’t stand keeping it cool, cut down your shower time! 
Pat your skin dry — don’t rub, Then it’s best to Moisturize your body right after you get out of the water, when your skin is still damp. slather yourself with a heavy duty body lotion and let it soak in a few min before dressing.

Easy on the Exfoliation IF you have already have flaking skin so bad its bleeding so to avoid damaging vulnerable skin

Dry hands and feetWhen washing your hands avoid too hot or too cold water. Use lukewarm. Apply lotion often and every time after washing your hands. keep a small bottle of Hand Cream in your bag. 
Get a humidifier If you feel your home has a dry air feeling to it, get a humidifier to place beside your bed or in the living room. In winters, keep a small humidifier near the heater which keeps the level of humidity in the air constant.
