Review of Olay Professional Pro-X Advance Cleaning System For Anti Aging





Hello, there.  It’s been a while huh? Today, i want to talk about another anti-aging product for our healthy and younger skin. These products are one of the top anti-aging product that gained popularity since a long time ago and I’m pretty sure, most of you have heard it, and even tried it. Olay PROx Advance cleansing system! Sound great, huh.. Let me introduce you all about this fantastic anti-aging product.

Olay Professional Pro-X
is a scientifically advanced line of skin care products that gives you younger-acting, younger-looking skin in 28 days. Guaranteed. Designed and tested by the Olay Professional Alliance for Skin Care Innovation, a specialized team of independent dermatologists and P&G scientists, Pro-X resignals skin to repair the moisture barrier and boost surface-cell turnover rate. The result is potent, proven, and professional.


Furthermore, these amazing products have been awarded best in beauty and best in anti-aging. Instead of renowned dermatologists and P&G Scientists combined forces to create prescribed regimens that treat specific skin care concerns, this Olay Professional Pro-X
really amuse me to try it myself.

As i mentioned above, as the best products in anti-aging of the year, the study found that the Olay Professional Pro-X regimen clinically improves the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles as well as this gold standard prescription regimen in just 8 weeks.*
“We believe this is the first of its kind clinical study comparing a cosmetic anti-aging regimen against a recognized prescription topical treatment for improving the appearance of facial wrinkling,” said Joe Kaczvinsky, PhD, a principal scientist at P&G Beauty & Grooming and a lead author of the study.  “Having this study published in a prestigious peer-reviewed journal is a testament to the significance of these findings.”

The randomized, parallel-group comparative study involving 196 women showed that more than half of the subjects using Olay Professional Pro-X Intensive Wrinkle Protocol (58%) were judged to look better for visible wrinkle reduction compared to subjects using the 0.02 percent tretinoin regimen (41%) after 8 weeks of treatment.  Further, the Olay Professional Pro-X regimen reduced visible facial wrinkle size by 17% compared to 11% by 0.02 percent tretinoin regimen after 8 weeks of treatment (p=.06).  Both expert visual grading analysis and objective computer imaging analysis of high resolution digital images of the study participants before and after treatment confirmed the effects were significant and noticeable after 8 weeks of use. The Olay Professional Pro-X regimen was also well tolerated by women using the product throughout the initial 8-week period.

Does it deliver? Well, I’ve been using Olay Professional Pro-X
regimen for above 3 weeks now. I found that it provides sufficient moisture to my skin and absorbs quickly. I don't have an issue with irritation anymore and my skin looks great. The size of my pores appears reduced and my blackheads (even the stubborn ones) seemed to have disappeared.

Olay Pro-x Brush. I used it once a day everyday for 2 weeks before noticing that my skin was pimple free. I couldn’t believe it, it works! Each brush had a different technology while the Olay brush rotates by itself so I had to just move it around in straight movements (up, down, right, left).  My skin feeling very clean, better than when I just rubbed my cleanser with my hands and kept pimples at bay. Olay Pro-X has reduced the size of my pores, removed most of the blackheads on my nose and left my skin feeling equally soft.

I am definitely impressed with Derma e's products. After a few days using it my skin is brighter, and clearer. I reach the end of the day without the T-oiliness I used to have, and no pacthes of dryness either. It also holds perfectly any make-up. Besides, it is so pleasant to apply -- is is light and has a magnificently subtle scent. I also use one of their night creams, and can't wait to try more Derma e's products.” (Carla Araujo, November 2010)

I received a sample of this product and was amazed by how well it worked immediately! I have very dry skin and largish pores around my nose and lines under my eyes - both problems were erased by this cream. My face was glowing and beautiful like I had lost 10 years of aging. This is truly a miracle because nothing else has been helping me and the whole aging thing was really depressing me. My boyfriend couldn't get over how lovely I looked and asked me: "what did you do?! You look so beautiful!" I am purchasing some of this right away and maybe the night cream, too. I also take hyaluronic acid tablets (I had stopped for awhile because they can be expensive and that is when I noticed some dramatic aging - started again recently). Taking HA internally also helps your skin and really helps me sleep well at night for some reason and helps with joint pain and stiffness. It is a wonderous element that I am happy to re-discover!” (Chelsea Watson, November 2010)

My Review About Hyaluronic Acid Products (Part I)

My Review About Hyaluronic Acid Products (Part I)

Hyaluronic Acid: Younger Naturally


          Just like my previous articles, i have explained a little information about Hyaluronic Acid in my 10 Things You Should Know When Buying Anti Wrinkle Creams. For your information, hyaluronic acid can be found throughout your body, as it forms part of the structural connective tissue that holds together tissues. HA is a crucial component of the extracellular matrix, which occupies the area between cells. Almost half of the body’s HA is located in the collagen of the skin, acting as a moisture-retaining gel.


          Scientific studies have shown that hyaluronic acid improves skin hydration, works as an antioxidant and free-radical scavenger, and stimulates the production of collagen in skin. In the same time, HA also keeps tissues elastic, protecting joints from repeated stresses. Other studies have shown that hyaluronic acid has anti-bacterial and anti-inflammation properties. Ironically, the molecule itself has a short lifespan and must be frequently produced by cells to replace lost hyaluronic acid. With age, the production of HA declines, which may contribute to many of the diseases that are commonly associated with aging.


         With such wonderful properties, you may be wondering, is hyaluronic acid for sale? Very few foods and herbs containing hyaluronic acid have been identified, but the compound is present in starchy tubers and meat products rich in connective tissue, such as rooster combs. Hyaluronic acid in the injectible form is available in the popular skin care compounds that are used to reduce wrinkles. Other forms of topical hyaluronic acid serum are also used as anti-wrinkle agents. However, injecting or taking HA supplements are not the only way to increase hyaluronic acid levels in your body. Overall, eating a diet rich in whole foods, combined with exercise and a healthier lifestyle, and reducing your consumption of processed foods will boost levels of hyaluronic acid throughout the body.


          Remember that the long-living Japanese villagers that were the focus of Primetime’s special did not take supplements, but rather had a varied diet of natural foods, combined with a healthy lifestyle. Therefore, it is likely that the regenerative processes in the body are less likely to be triggered by supplements than by natural foods.

Here are my reviews about the anti wrinkle products that contains Hyaluronic Acid:

Hyaluronic Acid Serum 100% Pure 2 oz.


Looking at clinical trial data and customer feedback, results are very positive – provided you pick the best.  Customer testimonials report great improvements in skin tone, brightness and smoothness.  Many users notice an overall reduction in fine lines and wrinkles. anti aging serum is much more light in feel and will sink into freshly cleansed and toned skin quickly. As you would expect there are a bewildering number to look at and you need to choose carefully to get the safest ingredients for your face.
Hyaluronic acid is one of the safest ingredients in beauty products. Although there are a few research to support the claims of Hyaluronic acid serum as the fountain of youth, many people who do use it report positive results.
Here are some of the popular products containing this ingredient. Read these Hyaluronic Acid Serum 100% Pure 2 oz. reviews to help you decide which product you want to try.
 Hyaluronic Acid Serum 100% Pure 2 oz.  is non greasy, dries fast and clear which are more actives with less chemicals. This USA’s product is great to cure hydration, anti aging, wrinkles as well as moisturizing. This Timeless Pure collection contains a high concentration of hyaluronic acid that you won't find anywhere else. It is natural and paraben free as it don't use excess ingredients to make up for the lack of actives. The different between this product compared to others: It use a higher concentration of HA than any other products and holds up to 1000 times its weight in water! This serum also contains 1% HA, or about 2x the amount of HA contained in others 60% concoctions.
It’s containing Water, Sodium Hyaluronate (1%; 100% pure), Benzylalcohol and Dehydroacetic Acid. To apply this serum, wash the area to be applied as you normally would. Then, apply several drops to desire area or you can combine with your favourite cream/ moisturizer to enhance benefits. Just use twice a day and you can see the differences in several weeks.
I put a few of testimonials for Hyaluronic Acid Serum 100% Pure 2 oz.
-“I am in love with this serum. I've been using it everyday, and it is my dermatologist in a bottle. My skin is glowing, oil is under control, and my skin tone has dramatically improved since I started using this hyaluronic acid. It's excellent for moisture. I even mix it with my lotion for dry skin and it works magic. I use in in my hair moisturizer as well. My hair has never been so soft and manageable. I am in love with this stuff. It's definitely part of my everyday beauty regimen. One more thing...I got this serum because I was starting to see little lines in my face and wrinkles in my forehead. They are practically invisible now. LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!!”(Krissykimono, August 2010)
- “I bought this hyaluronic acid to use after chemical peel. It doesn't give burning sensation or irritation as any other creams and moisturizes after peel do. It calms and moisturizes skin. Excellent quality and big bottle. Will buy again.”(T.P, July, 2010)
-“ I'm very happy with this stuff. It dries clear, matte, and very lightweight, it does not have a smell, it doesn't burn, it doesn't make me break out, and it doesn't interfere with my makeup. It didn't seem like it was working for the first week, but now I can see a difference in my skin. I have not tried any of the expensive hyaluronic acid products for comparison(I was using Source Naturals Skin Eternal Hyaluronic Acid Serum before I switched to this, which I do not recommend), but I'm satisfied with this product, especially since it's so inexpensive.”(Marinette , May 2011).

10 Things You Should Know When Buying Anti Wrinkle Cream


To find the right product, you must know what ingredients matter in the first place and what makes a wrinkle cream work. I hope you will find the following information helpful. Remember, the best anti-wrinkle cream should address the problems such as wrinkles, dullness and uneven complexion which are commonly associated with aging. Below are the lists of essential ingredients that are found to be able to tackle these conditions:

-CoQ10 – CoQ10 or similar with Coenzyme Q10, Co Q10, Ubiquinone, Vitamin Q is a potent antioxidant that helps to reduce and neutralize free radicals and stimulate the growth of collagens in the skin. This is considered one of the most effective ingredients to help de-age the skin.

-Peptides – these are small protein fragments that affect the collagen and elastin production of skin cells. As you know, proteins are the main building blocks of all tissues. It also helps reduce puffiness under the eyes by improving drainage, reducing capillary fragility while increasing skin firmness and elasticity. Sensitive skin types might try a peptide-containing eye cream instead of one packed with Retinol, as it’s more gentle on the dermis. Peptides, combined with copper atoms - bearing the name of copper peptides - have a positive effect on wound healing, restoring the damaged area to its original look. In other words, copper peptides used in face cream and moisturizers will reduce the formation of scar tissue, and stimulate your skin to produce normal cells. Tests show that creams with peptides also stimulate the production of collagen found in normal skin better than vitamin C, making them an extremely promising skin treatment.

-Bioactive Keratin – is a natural substance obtained from sheep’s wool and it’s a relatively new ingredient found in some of the best skincare products. Unlike regular hydrolyzed Keratin, it’s very similar to the basic Keratin protein found in human skin. It helps to stimulate the regeneration of new skin cells, promote regrowth of collagen and elastin, and retain moisture to the skin. As your collagen and elastin levels increase, your wrinkles will slowly disappear. Bioactive Keratin is quite frequently found in the best anti aging product.

-Hyaluronic Acid –helps draw moisture from the air and retain up to 1,000 times its weight in water, for a plump skin. According to Japanese research, starchy Japanese tubers in their diet may promote the production of hyaluronic acid in the body, a compound that usually declines with age. The villagers not only live longer, but are also healthier with a lower incidence of age-associated diseases such as arthritis, dementia, diabetes and cancer. Interestingly, they are also relatively wrinkle-free, and have smooth, unblemished skin well into their 80s.

-Vitamins C and E- besides vitamin A (Retinol) vitamins C and E are also two of the powerful antioxidant ingredients. Vitamin C aids in collagen production and skin elasticity, while Vitamin E soothes and reduce the appearance of fine line, wrinkles and age spots.

The list will be continued in my next articles. Can’t wait to see meet you again..

Learn how to treat and remove the wrinkles (Derma Roller)

Lucky Nurul @ 4:35 AM

How to treat and remove the wrinkles with Derma Roller?
Promoting collagen production is the key to delaying this natural process as well as tackling the unnatural causes such as smoking. Microdermabrasion, anti-oxidants and certain vitamins all found in various creams can fight both the development and existence of wrinkles by promoting the production of collagen in the skin. Furthermore, new techniques such as micro-needling also promote the development of new collagen. I suggesting you to try this product:
Derma Roller By Rejuveness .
It's was similar results to laser treatment, chemical peels and dermabrasion at a fraction of the cost and it can Improve all types of acne scars (pitted, raised, ice pick, discolored scars).
Derma Roller By Rejuveness is suitable for all scar types, wrinkles, stretch marks, cellulite and damaged skin which were result of a lack of collagen. Using a ReJuveness Derma Roller offers nature a helping hand by encouraging collagen production in the skin, which helps prevent or reverse their formation.
I used this product since 2010 and i can tell you, there a major difference between this Derma Roller compared to the other wrinkle's free product. Firstly, they stimulate collagen growth which significantly improves the appearance of scars, fine lines, wrinkles, stretch marks, and acne scars. Secondly, they allow the application of creams, gels and oils, to be absorbed more effectively boosting their effectiveness. This treatment also assists hair loss treatments and cellulite reduction.
Testimonial:
" Alright I was extremely skeptical I have only used it for a 12 days now. I use it every night. I have noticed and more importantly my husband has noticed an improvement in my acne scaring. I have noticed a more even skin tone (but this is slight after 12 days). The sagging appears to be less noticeable. I am also seeing an improvement in the dark circles under my eyes. I have not changed my skin creams or makeup or anything else, including diet. The truth is that I have actually had less sleep and more stress in the past couple of weeks and still seeing these improvements."I Do Not Like Botox I used the 1.0 mm on my face with excellant results, but think I could take the 1.5 mm to improve wrinkles on my forehead. I have heard bad things about botox, so I have elected to try rolling a couple of lines up there. I have noticed some improvement in a short time and will continue to roll until improvement stops. I am shocked at what this product has done overall and can only imagine what may change on my face as I continue to use it. "Mary, NY
How to use Derma Roller:
Using the roller with slight pressure roll the device back and forth four times in four directions. The treatment should not be painful and should not draw blood. You will become accustomed to how much pressure you can apply without causing any pain or discomfort. Use the roller as part of your daily routine - you can roll every day if you wish although we recommend allowing your skin at least a couple of days of rest each week.

Smoking VS Wrinkles?

Lucky Nurul @ 4:15 AM
Are there any correlations between smoking habit and getting wrinkles? I found some facts supporting this variable. Let see how it works...Feed Your Face: Younger, Smoother Skin and a Beautiful Body in 28 Delicious Days
1.     According to Dr. Nicholas Perricone, dermatologist and author of The Perricone Prescription (HarperCollins), the effects of smoking in terms of aging are significant. When we inhale just one puff of cigarette smoke, more than a trillion free radicals are produced in our lungs, which then trigger an inflammatory response that circulates throughout the body.
2.     As you know, smokers inhale the nicotine while smoking. The nicotine in cigarettes causes narrowing of the blood vessels in the outermost layers of your skin. This impairs blood flow to your skin. With less blood flow, your skin doesn't get as much oxygen and important nutrients, such as vitamin A. Many of the over 4,000 chemicals in tobacco smoke also damage collagen and elastin, which are fibres that give your skin its strength and elasticity. As a result, skin begins to sag and wrinkle prematurely because of smoking.
3.     Besides, repeated exposure to the heat from burning cigarettes and the facial expressions you make when smoking — such as pursing your lips when inhaling and squinting your eyes to keep out smoke — may contribute to wrinkles.
4.     Smoking also depletes the body’s stores of Vitamin C. In one study, smokers with similar intake had consistently lower blood Vitamin C levels compared to non-smokers. Vitamin C is involved in the synthesis of collagen and is a powerful anti-oxidant in itself.
From the finding above, i can conclude that smoking can lead to many wrinkles and we need to start changing the bad habits to get a healthy life and free wrinkles in the early age. I would like to include my favorite books for this topic as you might like it too: Feed Your Face: Younger, Smoother Skin and a Beautiful Body in 28 Delicious Days. Don't forget to find out how to treat the wrinkles in my next article.

How to prevents wrinkle?

Lucky Nurul @ 12:13 AM
Everyone wants to get younger and looks pretty. But, the time will pass by and we are getting old. As people age, it's normal to get wrinkles. Anyway, let me explain about wrinkle first.  A wrinkle is a fold, ridge or crease in the skin. Skin wrinkles typically appear as a result of aging processes such as glycation or, temporarily, as the result of prolonged when immerse in water for more than a few minutes. Wrinkling in the skin is caused by habitual facial expressions, aging, sun damage, smoking, poor hydration, and various other factors. People who have spent a lot of time in the sun, at tanning salons, or smoking cigarettes might have a lot of them.

How wrinkles could happen?
Let’s get back to the moment when we are still young and wrinkle-free-times. When we're young, we don't have wrinkles because our skin does an excellent job of stretching and holding in moisture. The dermis has an elastic quality thanks to fibers called elastin that keep the skin looking and feeling young. A protein in the dermis called collagen also plays a part in preventing wrinkles.

         However, its nature of life and when the age are getting older, the dermis loses both collagen and elastin which cause skin gets thinner and has trouble getting enough moisture to the epidermis. The fat in the subcutaneous layer that gives skin a plump appearance also begins to disappear, the epidermis starts to sag, and wrinkles form. Besides, with prolonged water exposure, the outer layer of skin starts to absorb water. The skin doesn't expand evenly, causing it to wrinkle too. Depletion of water in the body, as occurs with dehydration, can also cause this puckering of the skin. Cortisol causes degradation of skin collagen.

How to prevent getting many wrinkles at an early age?
There are many ways to prevent getting wrinkles on our early age.
Don’t go to the tanning salon. The UV light from tanning booths is just as damaging as the sun's — and sometimes worse. According to American Academy of Dermatology, most bulbs used at salons emit UVA and small amounts of UVB rays. It is also believed that this is contributing to a variety of cancers. In the same time, melanin that is produced by a limited exposure of the sun will offer a little protection although you had to damage your skin to get it. The UVA rays used with tanning beds does not work in the same way. Natural sun will cause the skin to thicken and that is where the protection comes into play. The UVA rays used in a salon has no effect on the thickening of the skin (Nicholas Lowe, author of Skin Secrets)


Don't smoke! -Smoking robs your skin of precious moisture and causes premature (early) wrinkles. Smoking can speed up the normal aging process of your skin, contributing to wrinkles. These skin changes may occur after only 10 years of smoking. The more cigarettes you smoke and the longer you smoke, the more skin wrinkling you're likely to have. And smoking doesn't cause wrinkles only on your face. Smoking also is associated with increased wrinkling and skin damage on other parts of your body, including your inner arms.

Drink a lot of water. I did a quick review and found that respected dermatologists like Daniel Maes (Head of Research for Estee Lauder), Nicholas Perricone and countless others less famous but no less qualified all say drinking water is important to keep skin hydrated.  And hydrated skin is younger looking skin as we all know. Loss of hydration in the skin shows in all sorts of ways – dryness, tightness, flakiness. Dry skin has less resilience and is more prone to wrinkling. Water is essential to maintain skin moisture and is the vehicle for delivering essential nutrients to the skin cells.

So, starting from now on, try to avoid any bad habits and live a healthy lifestyle for a better future. Live healthy for wrinkle free!

Leons Anti Aging Beauty Secrets

Lucky Nurul @ 5:36 AM
Leon is the admin of Leons beauty tips and secrets and also the author of the Leons Anti Aging Beauty Secrets.
I try to stay away from doing reviews, because honestly, most of them consist of recipes only and do not give you the insight into the effects the ingredients used to make these recipes. Most of you who read this website know that I like medical, biological, and chemical references or at least an indication of what the ingredients do or do not do. But this book is different from many I had a chance to read since starting this site, and here is why:
Leon offers 10 chapters in this 60-page ebook:
The first 4 chapters offer background information on the aging process and anti aging techniques and tips that can help you slow down the aging process.
Chapter 1 starts off with Anti-Aging Mantra, an overview of aging causes and then gives you 10 must do mantras that when done regularly, can help slow down the aging tremendously. Each one of these is absolutely practical and easy to do in your free time.
Chapter 2 moves on into an Anti-Aging Diet where Leon talks extensively about antioxidants and foods that contain them. She lists vitamin-rich food and also provides a list of ingredients known to contain antioxidants.
Chapter 3 is thrown in as a fun overview of the worldwide beauty secrets. You will find ingredients and oils listed and an explanation of their use in this chapter.
Chapter 4 talks about Ayurvedic Anti-Aging Secrets; Ayurvedic being quite popular these days. The reason it is so popular is because it is a holistic approach to life, so you deal with the state of both body and mind in order to look beautiful and healthy. Leon lists a few skin care recipes and then gives a couple of recipes for detoxification.
Chapters 5-9 are filled with my favorite topic: skin care recipes. You will find anti-aging cleansers (chapter 5), anti-aging exfoliants (chapter 6), anti-aging toners (chapter 7), anti-aging face packs (chapter 8), and finally, anti-aging facial serums, eye serums, and lip balms recipes (chapter 9).
Chapter 10, the final chapter, is the bonus chapter of this ebook. This chapter contains an eyelash and eyebrow booster recipe that is guaranteed to help you grow longer, thicker eyelashes and eyebrows.

Bonus# 2 1001 Beauty Tips
Bonus# 3 Wrinkle Reduction & Skin Rejuvenation

Leons Anti Aging Beauty Secrets can be bought for $15 for the next 9 orders; this book ordinarily costs $21.
Is it worth $21? - I would say yes if you are not looking into purchasing a magical, overnight solution. If you are genuinely interested in using natural, organic, affordable ingredients and resolved to use them regularly, then I have to say this book might be what you are looking for. I think Leon did a good job covering the basics and then offering some more in this book. It is a perfect gift to yourself or someone you know.

You should definitely check out this book, especially if you are looking for some low-cost ways to get rid of wrinkles without damaging your skin or the environment in the process.
Here’s the book : Anti Aging Beauty Secrets

Tighten Your Loose Skin Now

Lucky Nurul @ 7:51 PM
Loose skin can happen especially when you achieve large reduction of weight in short time. There are many product which claim to tighten skin, but sometimes it wont works. So, there are another alternative ways for you instead of directly choose surgery to thighten it or using mass skin products at the market.

  • Nourish your skin - Nourish your skin and encourage it's elasticity. Exfoliate your skin daily to encourage removal of dead skin cells. Doing this each day will stimulate your skin's circulation which should help in tightening skin up.
  • Use Moisturizer - Moisturizer will add up to seventy percent of moisturizer to your skin. When you are losing weight, it is great to use a moisturizer as it will help to maintain that elasticity as your body is shrinking. Cover your body in heavy moisturizer each night before you go to bed.
  • Determine your fat percentages- After you have your desired weight loss, determine what your body fat percentage is. It's impossible to differentiate loose skin from body fat without this figure. Many gyms are able to assess your body for this. 
  • Hot bath - You have to treat yourself to a hot hour-long bath once or twice a week. While the bath is being drawn, add 1/2lb of pure sea salt to the water and allow it to dissolve. Besides relaxing your body and muscles, it will draw toxins out of your skin and will improve your overall skin tone. 
  • After you knew what's your fat percentages, then you should strive to change your body's composition by reducing fat and replacing it with muscle.
  • Drink a lot of water -There is a lot of studies showing that you should drink at least eight glasses of water every day to keep that moisture in your skin. In the same time, the water is also going to flush those toxins out of your system to gives you a healthy skin.
  • Massage your bodies - For your imformations, massaging the skin helps to build that elasticity back up. You should use mustard oil in order to get the best results. That daily massage will also help your muscles develop. In mustard oil, you will find that there are many medicinal properties in it that will help you to have healthy and glowing skin.
  • Use Loofah or body scrub - When you use a body scrub or loofah at least twice a day, you will be helping to tighten up that lose skin that is caused by weight loss. Scrub your skin two to three times a week for a better results.
  • Do stomach crunch - I really wanted to point out to you just how important those stomach crunches are in order to tighten that skin. If you are not used to doing stomach crunches, then start with one and then increase it by one each day you go along.
  • Wear right clothes for night moisturizer - When you apply the moisturizer to your body at night, you may want to wear long sleeves and long pajamas in order to make sure it does not rub off on your sheets. This will also help to hold that moisture in as you sleep at night.
  • Eating raw food such as cucumber, tomato, olives and coconut can mark an improvement in your skin's elasticity.  
  • Foods for elasticity - Aloe vera extract, soy protein and yeast extract can improve your skin's elasticity by increasing your body's production of elastin and collagen. It not only tightens your skin but your skin's natural defenses as well.
