Cellulite and how to control it the Team Dr Joseph way

Cellulite and how to control it the Team Dr Joseph way

Cellulite causes that dimple-looking fat on your thighs, hips, butt, and belly! It is a condition that affects 90 percent of women and 10 percent of men. Cellulite is much more common in women than in men because of differences in the way fat cells, muscle, and connective tissue are distributed in men’s and women’s skin.

From 25 to 35 is when you start seeing the appearance of cellulite. It is tough to get rid of, especially because it can be a result of the genetic card that we were dealt with. But there are ways to prevent it, slow it down and improve the appearance. The best option to reduce the appearance of cellulite is exercise, and, if needed, weight loss. Firming and toning muscles will in turn tighten the skin, giving the illusion that cellulite is less noticeable!

How to control cellulite:

Exercise
Building lean muscle in the targeted areas will decrease the appearance of cellulite in a significant way. We recommend squats, lunges, hamstring curls and single leg deadlifts. Having more muscle makes your skin look smoother and firmer. Replacing fat with muscle can also make cellulite less noticeable.

Diet
Eating a lot of refined and processed foods encourages cellulite to form. It is important to eat a diet of rich in nutrient-dense, natural foods like fruits, vegetables, and fibre to leave your skin glowing from within. Experts have concluded that eating a healthy diet can decrease fluid retention and improve the overall health and appearance of skin.

Movement
Do not sit or stand in the same position for a long time as it can affect the natural rhythm and flow of blood circulation. Get moving and boost circulation and detoxification. Changing position will also reduce the risk of developing varicose veins.

Hydration
Since the human body is composed of about 60 percent water, it makes perfect sense that dehydration plays a big role in cellulite build-up under the skin. Not getting enough water can cause toxic accumulation in fat cells that is difficult for the body to metabolize and contributes to the cottage cheese texture of cellulite. Drinking plenty of water can help aid your body in metabolising fat, ridding itself of toxins and strengthen the skin.

Anti-cellulite ritual with Team Dr Joseph

Exfoliate with TDJ Alpine Herbs Exfoliating Body Scrub

Exfoliating vigorously on a regular basis can have a major impact on burning away cellulite on your thighs. Strong strokes on your thighs can aid with getting rid of unwanted toxins, accumulation of fluids and stimulate the metabolism of fat.

TDJ Alpine Herbs Exfoliating Body Scrub cleanses the skin with gentle apricot kernel crystals, deeply detoxes the skin, helps to stimulate micro circulation, and makes the skin appear clearer and brighter. The exfoliation perfectly prepares the skin for treatments to follow.

Massage with TDJ Body Shape Cellulite Cream

The benefits of a great massage are endless! Massage helps to reduce the appearance of cellulite by stimulating circulation and draining excess fluids. Our revolutionary TDJ Body Shape Cellulite Cream has a high concentration of functional ingredients that helps to counteract the appearance of the cellulite. Selective extracts from sundew, ivy, sandalwood, and cypress are giving a firm, smooth and toned skin feeling.

Cellulite creams improve the appearance of cellulite by addressing three treatable components of cellulite: collagen stimulation, fat reduction and increasing circulation.

It is not always possible to prevent cellulite but maintaining a healthy weight and getting regular exercise may help diminish the appearance of cellulite. Maintaining hydration (drinking plenty of fluids) and smoking cessation may also make cellulite less noticeable. This lifestyle has other beneficial effects such as improved mood, increased energy, and well-being.

Lip and Eye Care with QMS

Lip and Eye Care with QMS

Do you really need an eye cream?

The skin around the eyes is thinner and is the first to show signs of aging. This thinness makes it more delicate and prone to dryness and sensitivity. Every time you move your eyes whether you are smiling, squinting, blinking you are using muscles around your eyes. Over time, factors like dryness, repetitive muscle contractions, loss of collagen and elastin lead to the formation of small expression lines, commonly knowns as crow’s feet. Smoking and exposure to the sun’s harmful UV rays can also contribute and worsen wrinkle formation.

Fair skin and thin skin around the eye area can make dark circles look more prominent. Dark circles can also be the result of increased pigmentation, thinning skin that reveals blue and purple veins, or hollowness of the under-eye area from fat loss that can create a shadow and deter good blood circulation.

Incorporating an eye cream into your daily skincare routine can help minimize the appearance of these wrinkles as well as tackle other skin concerns like dryness, puffiness, dark circles, and pigmentation. The sooner the better! It is easier to prevent signs of aging than to correct them. We recommend investing in an eye cream from the age of 25.

What ingredients should you look for in an eye cream?

Some key ingredients to look for are caffeine, antioxidants, hyaluronic acid, and peptides. Caffeine is renowned for its depuffing by constricting the blood vessels and reducing inflammation. While peptides boost collagen production, making your skin plumper and more youthful.

Since the skin around your eyes has very few active oil glands, hydrating ingredients like hyaluronic acid, squalane, and ceramides are essential for drawing in and sealing in the moisture.

Whether you want to tackle fine lines, treat dark circles, or reduce puffiness, these QMS picks have got you covered:

Can you treat wrinkles around the mouth?

Wrinkles occur when the skin loses collagen and is more prominent around thinner areas of the face, including the lip area. Factors like smoking, sun damage, and menopause can increase your risk of developing wrinkles around the mouth.

There are different types of mouth wrinkles, namely: smile lines, marionette lines and lipstick lines. To treat wrinkles around the mouth we recommend using a targeted serum that has a 3-phase lifting effect to stimulate collagen production, plump the skin from the inside and provide intense hydration.

QMS Lip Line Corrector Lip Serum has been designed exclusively to reduce fine lines and wrinkles in the lip area. The lightweight formulation ensures effective and immediate absorption to provide the skin with intense hydration and improvement of skin elasticity.

Our treatment solution with QMS Medicosmetics:

QMS Eye Reviver Add-on Treatment: Restoring tired and puffy eyes with our QMS Beauty Eye Spatulas. Provides complete rejuvenation and relaxation to the delicate eye area. Through intense hydration the eye area is left nourished, lifted, and refreshed.

Antiaging with the QMS Advanced Range

Antiaging with the QMS Advanced Range

The definition of anti-aging is to delay, stop or slow down the aging process. How your skin ages depend on such factors like your lifestyle, diet, environmental stress, genetics, and personal habits. From around the age of 25 the first signs of aging start to show. Fine lines and wrinkles appear first, a loss of volume and a loss of elasticity become noticeable over time.

Our skin ages for a variety of different reasons. Many of the causes of skin aging are entirely natural and cannot be changed. There are, however, several factors that can cause skin to age prematurely, and these can be influenced. A holistic approach to lifestyle and skincare can help to reduce the visible signs of skin aging and prevent premature skin aging.

Skin changes with each life stage and the way it is cared for should reflect its changing needs. A good skincare routine is an essential part of a holistic approach to treating all signs of aging: wrinkles, loss of volume, loss of elasticity and related conditions such as age induced dryness, uneven skin tone, dark spots, and sensitivity.

The science of antiaging has come a long way and QMS offers an advanced, comprehensive antiaging system for skin with visible signs of aging.

5 Natural Ingredients You Need to Know about Now!

5 Natural Ingredients You Need to Know about Now!

Baobab:

This powerful antioxidant ingredient with lifting effect counteracts muscle slackening, improving the contours around the jawline that occurs due to sagging. It moisturizes the skin and improves skin elasticity, making it feel firm and smooth. Combine this with an AHA for a synergistic action to achieve a facelift effect. TRY! The velvety texture of Intense Repair Well Aging Mask.

Usnea:

Also known as old man’s beard, this multi-functional ingredient has a protective effect against UVB radiation-induced inflammation, aiding in the prevention of post inflammatory hyperpigmentation after acne breakouts. This is a great ingredient to use if you struggle with ‘maskne’. Usnea is also known to fight infections and help to treat and prevent acne. Found in high concentration in the Deep Purifying Serum for oily and problematic skin types.

Natural hyaluronic acid:

This natural non-animal hyaluronic acid is obtained through fermentation. Hyaluronic acid is a natural part of our skins which acts as a water reservoir and shock-absorber. It is a very important supportive structure in our dermis, giving plumpness and elasticity. We love hyaluronic acid because of its fast-acting properties and amazing results. Combined with fig extract, the Intense Hydration Serum gives the skin an instant moisture boost and plumps out those dry fine lines in no time.

Argan Oil:

Also known as “Liquid Gold from Morocco” is super high in essential fatty acids and rich in antioxidants and vitamin. This makes this oil a great choice of in sensitive, dry, mature and stressed skins. The protective and nourishing qualities of this natural oil from the argan tree is also often used by Moroccon women to protect against sun damage and pigmentation. Daily Cellular Hand Protection Cream with SPF10 soothes and moisturize our over-sanitized, dry hands.

Hibiscus Extract:

We love hibiscus because this extract is a botanical alternative to Botox. It is effective at minimizing muscle contractions that lead to wrinkle formation. These wrinkles occur due to tense muscles and often lead to deep lines on the forehead and around the eye contour. In addition to this, it is also a very strong antioxidant that protects against free radicals in the environment and from stress. Try out the Ultra Intense Hyaluronic Age Repair Cream.

Q&A: Delaying the Signs of Ageing

Q&A: Delaying the Signs of Ageing

Is there any way in which we can delay the signs of ageing and turn back time through just diet and lifestyle alone?

The short answer is ‘Yes, you can’. A healthy lifestyle and diet can most definitely improve the health and quality of the skin, which then results in a delay in the signs of ageing. But you need to recognise that there are limits with this method, and for best results you need to find ways to boost your skin’s health from within. Nutricosmetics are an excellent way to do this. Our Collagen Intravital Plus is specifically formulated to recondition, regenerate, and protect the skin.

What are the main contributing factors of ageing that we bring on ourselves?

Our lifestyle is the main contributor to how our skin ages. Skin reacts to its external environment and our modern-day living is harsh. Environmental factors like the sun, severe wind, seasonal changes, and pollution brings new challenges for your skin to overcome. The QMS EpiGen range has been specifically developed to protect the skin from environmental stress and pollution.

How important are supplements?

Our diet is generally lacking in certain vital minerals and vitamins, and, as we age, absorption also becomes more difficult. Collagen Intravital Plus is a supportive nutritional supplement combining QMS’ unique collagen, multifunctional antioxidants and a highly effective multi-vitamin complex B, C & E to recondition, regenerate and protect the natural skin structure from within.

What have been the biggest scientific breakthroughs in terms of anti-ageing skincare and techniques in QMS?

QMS is based on scientific logic and revolutionised the way we care for the skin. Continually striving to improve delivery systems and techniques to enhance the metabolism of active ingredients for immediate and long-term benefits. Top four breakthroughs are:

  1. The conditioning of natural soluble collagens to be able to penetrate the skin. Collagen is the most important protein in your skin, 65% of the body’s proteins are collagen and they are responsible for the elasticity of the skin. As a trauma and cosmetic surgeon, Dr Erich Schulte researched wound-healing and found collagen to be highly significant. This led him to develop a method to condition natural soluble collagens so that they can be re-absorbed into the epidermis and be applied topically to the skin, thereby allowing skin regeneration.
  2. Stem Cell Technology in our Advanced Cellular Marine & Cellular Alpine designed to support the skin’s own stem cells and enhance the stimulation of new stem cells.
  3. Electro-galvanic transportations (electric micro-current technology) through the skin barrier without destroying the protective functions. This smart formulation is found in Advanced Ion Equalizing System to help boost the skin’s regeneration at night, visibly reducing lines and wrinkles and gives skin a firm and elastic appearance.
  4. Epigenetic science investigates how the environment and stress affects the skin and the ageing process. QMS is at the forefront of this technology; using the most advanced epigenetic protein to strengthens the skin DNA against the environment and pollution.

What is the most effective turn-back-time and anti-ageing regime /treatment short of cosmetic surgery?

For long term results and skin transformation a good skincare system is the foundation to slow down and reverse signs of ageing. An optimum skincare regeneration system needs be rich in collagen. Collagen is critical for the moisturising process; it is the protein that keeps skin’s tone, youth, and elasticity. The skin’s production of collagen decreases as the skin ages, leading to a loss of moisture and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. With QMS you can help reverse the appearance of ageing by addressing the underlying cause – loss of collagen.

What is the optimum age to start an anti-ageing regime and what can we realistically expect to achieve?

From thirty is a good age to start, as from 25 our collagen production starts to decrease, and if you get into a good regime by 30 then you can take around five years off your age. If you start young you can definitely stay young.

5 Things that dry out your skin

5 Things that dry out your skin out

A skin without moisture is a dull and tired skin. Not only that, but aging is accelerated in dry skins. Here are some common mistakes people tend to be unaware of in their skincare routines as well as some easy tips and advice for alternatives options that gives a glowing and healthy appearance to the skin.

Soap and harsh cleansers:

As with soap, ingredients such as sodium laurel sulphate has been known to dry skin out and have a negative impact on the skin pH. They strip the skin of its natural oils and could easily lead to irritation and allergies. These stripping ingredients – that give you that squeaky-clean, tight feeling – is in fact, a big influencer on why so many clients experience oily skins.

Natural and organic products ensure the skin’s acid mantle is respected as it forms and important part of the skin’s immune system. If you love a gel lather over your skin, give the Purifying Cleansing Gel a try. It leaves the skin feeling smooth, clean and supple. For an even easier cleansing and toning routine, we recommend the Pure Blossom Micellar Cleansing Water.

Alcohol:

Alcohol is a collective term used for a group of liquids. They may be used for a wide variety of functions including preserving natural ingredients and have an anti-bacterial effect. Even though they have these properties, alcohols such as ethanol can easily cause a vicious cycle of skin issues. Toners and perfumes are often culprits that contain this harsh ingredient that strips the skin of its natural sebum layers. This makes the skin dry and sensitive to the sun.

Team Dr Joseph natural formulations are free from damaging alcohols and instead use functional plant extracts to preserve product freshness and provide anti-bacterial properties. Fragrances are all from natural origin and enhance the appearance of the skin. Daily Balancing Toner gently balances the skin, leaving it soft and supple and comes without that harsh alcohol smell.

Mineral Oils:

Also listed on ingredient packaging as paraffin oil, liquid paraffin, paraffinum liquidum, and liquid petroleum, these oils have amazing cleansing performance in make up removers or milky cleansers. They are also used in moisturizers for their emollience but over time causes dehydration and clogs the pores.

The natural formulation of the Team Dr Joseph range is complete free from these oils, using plant oils such as shea butter, almond, olive, jojoba and many more beautiful oils. Try Gentle Make Up Remover. See and feel the difference in your skin when nature takes over.

Incorrect home care products for your skin:

We often forget that the skin is an organ that evolves and changes over time. Many factors such as aging, the environment and climate, medications and lifestyle choices influence the skin’s oil-moisture balance. It is therefore important to reassess and update your home care products accordingly.

Professional skin experts can perform a consultation and skin analysis to include all the relevant factors that may affect your skin and advise the best product options for your skin type, conditions and age.

Exposure to excessive heat:

Hot showers and baths feel super relaxing at times, but they serve no good purpose for your skin’s moisture levels. Water escapes from the skin and may lead to dry itchy skins.

Keep the water warm or lukewarm (not hot) and apply a moisturizer or a mask immediately after the shower or bath. Get your glow back with Intensive Moisturising Mask containing smooth protection complex to alleviate dry skins and protects it from external environmental aggressors. Due to the high-tech formulation, this complex maintains natural hydration levels for 48 hours.

The Perfect Morning Skincare Routine

The Perfect Morning Skincare Routine

The skin is the barrier between inside and outside worlds. The largest organ of our bodies is actively protecting us during the day. It prevents our bodies from dehydration, protects us from radiation from the sun, gives warning signals through the sense of touch and help regulate body temperature. However, due to the modern lifestyle and all the stressors in it, including the environment, a multitude of factors negatively influence these protective properties.

It is therefore necessary to adapt the home care routine to include a protective focus for the morning and a repair focus during night time. If you like to keep it simple, my advice is always to invest in high-quality basic products. For more powerful results, add a serum under your day cream in the morning to boost the skin’s protection which will also give you that added glow.

Step 1: Cleanse and tone in the morning.

(Yes, even if you went to bed with clean skin) this is because the skin sweats and detoxes at night. These toxins must be removed and allow the protective ingredients to be able to achieve maximum effect. Cleansing and toning has never been easier with Pure Blossom Micellar Water. It can remove make up, cleanse and tone all in one.

Step 2: Eye cream and/or serum application.

This is optional step for those who want simplicity and a quick routine. However, these items are necessary if you have maximum expectations or have a particular skin concern that requires it. Serums are result boosters and I for one do not skip this at all. Prevention is better (and cheaper) than cure so add a little bit of effort and you will thank yourself later. Intense Energizing Serum is oxygenating, protective, energizing, anti-aging and gives a glow!

Step 3: Choose a high-quality moisturizer according to your skin type and your age!

Make sure the moisturizer is highly concentrated with potent antioxidants. These are potent free radical scavengers that protect cellular membranes from negative influences of lifestyle and environment. Team Dr Joseph range of moisturizers is packed with plant-based antioxidants and strengthens the skin’s immune system.

Step 4: Do not leave the house without a sunscreen.

Never. Not even in winter. Nowadays, sunscreens are not only sunscreens but treat the skin by advancing the skin’s repair mechanisms and counteracting developing skin damage caused by UV rays. Your Daily High Protection Sun Cream SPF30 is super lightweight, natural formulation and also suitable for highly sensitive skins. In South Africa, it is also a very popular option for dark skin complexion as it does not leave a grey film after application.

Step 5: Why not re-hydrate the skin with a refreshing and thirst-quenching flower mist.

Neroli and Rose Toners are uplifting to the mood, sets make up and replenishes the skin with moisture. Pop it in your handbag and sprits this over your skin whenever you feel the need.
