ANTI-AGE WITH ANTI-AGING SKIN CARE EXPERT…. VIVIAN | TREATMENT FOCUSED SKIN CARE

 

Practicing Anti-Aging is the specialty at BioKorium® Skin Care.  In this episode Skin Care Expert and Esthetician Vivian Moreno explains and demonstrates one of her Anti-Aging skin treatments which includes Microscrub, Facial Wash, Greek Yogurt, Grapesseed Lotion and Skin Water Hydration Cream.  The Future of Skin Care is all about forcing water into the skin.  The last thing to remember is that skin treatments are based on Seasons and Weather.

Proper use of topical moisturizing and hydration products such as BioKorium® Skin Water® Hydration Cream with Hydro-Force® Technology can work to repair age related skin damage and a weakened skin barrier in order to reverse Transepidermal Water Loss and combat the signs of aging. What the mainstream Skin Care Industry instructs us to use in order to maintain proper skin hydration is not enough! Your skin remains thirsty. We at BioKorium® believe you need a Gulp of Water to maintain Skin Hydration, not a Sip!  Skin Water is the Big Gulp of Moisturizers.

Transepidermal Water Loss (TEWL) refers to the evaporation of water through the epidermis, or outer layer, of your skin. As we get older the loss of water through evaporation via your skin becomes higher. What does it means when your skin is unable to properly maintain its suppleness through normal hydration? This means that excess Transepidermal Water Loss is occurring due to damage or age impairment to the skin’s protective barrier faster than the body can replace it, therefore allowing excess moisture content to evaporate from the skin into the atmosphere, resulting in dry, irritated, dehydrated and/or itchy skin. Dry dehydrated skin can also accentuate fine lines and wrinkles.

Proper hydration is crucial in order to maintain a proper functioning body, as well as healthy skin. What would happen to your body if you were allowed to only drink 1 fluid ounce of water daily? You would absolutely know it would directly impact all bodily functions in a counterproductive way. Hence, we can look at Skin Care in the same manner. The Skin Care Industry has long sold the concept that there 1.7 ounce jar of cream will do it all, from skin hydration to skin tightening. If that 1.7 ounce cream was to last you the month, do you actually think it will do things it was marketed to do? At BioKorium® we believe that you would need if not 8 ounces but 16 ounces in order to maintain proper skin hydration for a month. Our Skin Water® Hydration Cream was designed with this concept in mind. Therefore proper hydration internally as well as externally contributes to reaching Anti-Aging goals.

Anti-Aging with the BioKorium® Skin Water® Hydration Cream with Hydro-Force® Technology can be used two ways: 1. As a Mask and 2. As a Moisturizer. Esthetician and Skin Care Specialist Vivian Moreno demonstrates the penetrating qualities of how to Anti-Age with Skin Water®.

In this episode Vivian uses BioKorium’s Original Facial Wash as a Mask.  The Facial Wash is another multiple use product.

ANTI-AGING WITH PHOTOJOURNALING | STEP ONE: ANTI-AGING THROUGH PHOTO DOCUMENTATION.

Practicing Anti-Aging is the specialty at BioKorium® Skin Care. Esthetician and Skin Care Expert Vivian Moreno has developed a way to demonstrate changes within the skin during the aging process, this in order to determine a plan to combat anti-aging. This process is known as Photojournaling, which is Step One of the Anti-Aging process.

Back in November of 2018 Vivian posted a blog on the very subject of Photojournaling in addition to the Seven Signs of Aging, which she will talk about in a future video.  In that blog posting she presents her first photo taken in April 2009 at Age 53.  The next photo was the one that shocked her taken in December 2017.  From these two photos she realized that what the skin care the industry was preaching, wasn’t working.  She began to tackle the question of “Why it wasn’t working!”  The next picture was taken almost a year later at Age 63 in November 2018, which showed her progress.  Photo Journaling gave a Snapshot in Time,  which allows one to compare with other Snapshots in Time.  Using these Time Shots as reference points gives a visual window to allow her to change the way main stream teaches skin care.  Photo Journaling; a Visual Window to Anti-Aging.

REMOVING THE SIGNS OF AGING

I believe I am truly practicing Anti aging!  Based on all current anti-aging/ skin care research which I did.  The way and process that I fixed my skin, I believe is virtually impossible.  BioKorium® Skin Care is AWSOME, or I should say my husband is awesome, he makes all my skin care.  Within 2 years, I have fixed my puffy eyes, sculpted my face, changed the texture of my skin, reduced the size of my pores, eliminated large pores, removed almost all the discoloration on my face, tightened and lifted my lips and above all I feel great!

I am currently training about 100 women on how to practice skin care my way! I want to thank all of my clients who were willing to try something completely different. What I realized is that my clients needed a skin coach in order to learn how and when to use active ingredients, especially if you want the ingredients to deliver BIG.

We started the BioKorium® Experiment about two and a half years ago, and we research the latest in skin care and anti aging regularly.  I have been in the skin care industry for about 30 years and it is my opinion today that everybody in the skin care industry has it all wrong.

Regardless of what process, procedure, or product that I use on my skin, it progressively improves everyday.  This is what I call anti aging, is my skin care process, not fillers and botox.  Removing the signs of aging, and how I did it will be coming soon in future blog posting.

THE FUTURE OF BIOKORIUM® SKIN CARE

  The future at BioKorium® Skin care will be focused on delivering measurable skin care results. Not just for the face but the entire body. We will be able to address all skin care needs with razor sharp precision. When we started the BioKorium® Experiment we didn’t know what to expect. Here is a clear example of Rebuilding, Re-sculpting and Resetting the skin in order for it to work better.
Feeling Ageless is what my clients begin experiencing after about 6 to 7 months into the process. We can teach you how to clean up your skin or we can do this for you. The results take a little longer when you do this facial yourself. I did myself.
  I have worked on this client for one year. Her results are measurable, she is extremely happy. I will be posting my own skin care results shortly. I have been working on my skin for almost a year and a half. We will be starting a new class soon. Stay Tuned!

WATER IS YOUR ENEMY, NOT THE SUN!

WATER IS YOUR ENEMY NOT THE SUN!  IS WATER RUINING YOUR SKIN? 

Back in 2017, the blog site Skin Gab interviewed Facialist/Esthetician Vivian Moreno referencing her opinions on Water and the Sun. She changed the accepted points of view by critically thinking out of the skin care box and beyond. What? Don’t wash your face too much, use Aquaphor/Vaseline, and don’t use sunscreen? All these points were pertinent. Don’t wash your face to much as to not destroy the natural pH environment of the skin. BioKorium® has their Waterscreen which is similar to Aquaphor/Vaseline which purpose is to seal in moisture. Sunscreens, well, we are all learning about this on how to much may be a detriment as oppose to a protective factor. Sunscreens are in everything, basic lotions, make-up, lip gloss etc. The chemicals involved in the sunscreen activity can have an effect on skins ability to react to the environment. Remember the skin is living entity.

PHOTO JOURNALING… A VISUAL WINDOW TO ANTI-AGING

The best thing I ever did was to keep a photo journal of my skin. My skin care journey started when I was 33 years old. I used the BEST QUALITY Skin Care possible, BIOKORIUM of course, followed a regimen of cleansing, toning, exfoliating moisturizing and hydrating. I then believed I was doing everything possible to slow down the aging process

At 62 I knew my skin was looking and feeling a little tired. I came to the realization that my skin was out of control then took a current photo and compared it to a photo taken 10 years before. WOW! I was a mess. I had all the 7 signs of aging* on my face plus a couple extra. What went wrong? I am sure there are many women just like me that spent years following a skin care plan trying to do all the right things in order to have beautiful skin only to wake up at age of 60 plus realizing you look and feel old!

I had no other choice but to figure out if Anti Aging of the skin was a real possibility or a figment of everyone’s imagination.

Trying to turn the clock back on my skin was fascinating, exciting and a little bit scary because I had no clue what I was getting into. I could not have done it without the help of my photo journal. It helped me take a closer look at the changes occurring in/on my skin and I could tell what products and processes worked the best. After 1 week of my new improved skin care plan I saw some changes happening slowly on my skin, but after 3 weeks I knew I was finally practicing Anti-Aging.

Losing weight and Anti-Aging in my opinion are very similar. When you want to lose weight your first step is to set a goal; something like I want to lose 10 pounds. Then you may decide what diet and exercise program you are going to try to achieve that goal, then step on a scale to get that bench mark number, your starting point, your actual weight. After a week or two you may step back on that scale to determine if the diet and exercise plan you selected is actually working.

When Practicing Anti-aging or starting a new skin care program you need to set goals as I would like tighter skin or I would like to get rid of the discoloration on my face. If you don’t know what issues you have, go to the 7 preconceived-industry-standard signs of aging* to determine what it is that is happening to your skin then get your benchmark by taking a series of photos. This way you can actually determine if you are getting little, no, or major results. Then determine what skin care diet or program you are going to try. You can check in with your local Dermatologist, Plastic Surgeon or try your local skin care professional. You can even go to your local drug store to pick up all the products you may need to start practicing Anti-Aging RIGHT?…..Well….maybe? It almost becomes a crap shoot when deciding what treatment procedure or product series will be right for your skin. There are millions of products to choose from. Some products are to strong some are too weak. Here is how I know if a product or procedure is working for me.

In my opinion it takes no longer than a week or less to determine if the program you choose is the right fit. When losing weight in the first week you probably feel better. Well the first week of Skin care is the same. Does your skin feel better? If your skin is red or dry and feels a bit uncomfortable you may need to change your program. Your best bet is before starting or investing in any new skin care regimen start a photo journal. Be sure that new skin care plan is working.

Here are some tips on photo positions I take to keep in my photo journal.

Face Front eyes open

Face neck and chest

Face front eyes closed

Face Right Side eyes open

Face Right Side eyes closed

Face Left Side eyes open

Face Left Side eyes closed

Then week to week, month to month you can see what changes are happening to your skin. Keeping a journal is not only important when choosing the right plan, but also tells the story of your skin care journey.

*Seven Signs of Aging:

  1. Dark spots: Dark spots, also called hyper pigmentation are caused by a variety of reasons. It could be caused by sun damage, inflammation, skin injuries or even acne.
  2. Sagging Skin: Ageing as well as the act of gaining and losing weight reduces the tautness of skin and gives an impression of loose skin and a perpetually tired look.
  3. Dull Glow-Less Skin: Dryness is exacerbated by wind, extremes of temperature and air-conditioning. It causes the skin to flake, chap and feel tight.
  4. Lines & wrinkles: These are a natural, unavoidable part of ageing. But, young people may get wrinkles way before their time due to excessive damage from the sun or by smoking.
  5. Dry Skin: Apart from being uncomfortable, dry skin creates scaly lines and wrinkles and is not to appealing to look at. Fortunately, most dry skin results from environmental factors that can be wholly or partially controlled.
  6. Patchy Skin: It is generally caused by differences in melanin content in different parts of the skin, but could also be caused by vascular (blood vessels) changes or the growth of foreign organisms on the skin.
  7. Open pores: Open pores are sometimes referred to as a “strawberry nose”. However they can occur anywhere on the face, back, chest or upper arms.

Are Your Aging Eyes Wrinkly, Droopy, Saggy, Sleepy or Puffy? And what are you going to do about it?

Note, before starting any treatment program or procedure for the eyes especially, check with your doctor to make sure there is not an underlying medical condition that may be causing your problem.

Conventional Skin care wisdom dictates, if you are suffering from Wrinkly, Droopy, Saggy, or Puffy eyes we should all run out and purchase the latest and greatest over priced eye cream and we should proceed with caution when applying said cream to such a delicate area on the face. The instructions may state, lightly pat the eye cream/moisturizer around the eyes. I have heard this from every doctor or Skin Care Professional I know.

It has been my experience that everyone who buys into the eye cream routine will still have aging eyes. The best quality highest grade eye creams may deliver minor- temporary effects .Eye creams will not deliver long lasting major results. Many Plastic Surgeons say surgery is the only answer. If you have upper and lower eye issues like I did you will need two surgeries. Each eye lift surgery or medical procedure can cost from $3,000.00 to $10,000.00 and it still won’t fix the skin issue or take care of the underlying problem.

At 63years of age, I felt surgery was out of the question for me when planning my own regimen for the eyes. I knew conventional skin care practices were not going to get the job DONE. I have every skin care ingredient at my disposal and nothing was giving me even a modest improvement. There had to be a better product, ingredient, procedure or treatment. The first thing I did was throw conventional skin care wisdom out the window, and if Conventional Skin Care said to go right I am going to go left.

When I put together a plan of action for my eyes I looked up all that is available in Skin Care, Medicine, and home remedies, here are some of the treatments and remedies I found for the eyes:

Coffee, tea, cucumbers, potatoes, aloe, baking soda, coconut oil, parsley, a cold spoon, cold water, ice, salt water, egg whites, strawberries, vaseline, lemons, tooth paste,wiitch hazel, Preparation-H, Sleep positions: sleep elevated, fillers, ultra sound radio frequency, $3,000.00 PRP Vampire facial using your own blood, surgery, (BCA) Bichoroaceticic acid, blepharoplasty, cryotherapy, topical Retin- A, laser, yoga lymphatic drainage, eye creams and sun screen.

I then looked up causes and conditions, here are a few:

Water retention, age, lack of sleep, allergies, illness, crying, too much salt, artificial sweetener, make up, cataracts, contacts, genetics, medication, dehydration, muscles stretching around the eye, thyroid dysfunction, smoking, oxidative stress, sun exposure.

I was sure I didn’t have a medical condition, but I did. At the time I started I thought I just had old aging eyes, I really couldn’t explain it. Today I know what the problem was I had a buildup of old dried up depleted skin cells, discoloration or melasma hyperpigmentation and I had these bumps under my eyes called Syringomas. I was a mess! In other words I had Droopy, Saggy, Sleepy and Puffy eyes.

So what was I going to do? What I did was combine a few home remedies with some redesigned acids, peptides, microscrubs, and a couple of other ingredients. Set some clear defined goals and kept a detailed photo journal. Here you have it, my before and after.

BAM! I did it. I am clearly on the road to recovery. And I will NEVER have these eye issues again. Feeling Ageless!

My Skin Care treatment for the eyes will send SHOCK WAVES thru the Skin Care industry. The combination of treatments I did is not for the faint of heart, it’s a thorough work out to the skin around the eyes.

This system will save you thousands on unnecessary treatments. The winning combination is my philosophy, products, process, procedure, and protocol. Follow me, and I will teach you how…. instructions coming soon.
