Nail enthusiasts all want the same thing: vibrant nail colors sans chipping. There’s something extremely satisfying about leaving a nail salon with a set of perfectly colored nails that you know will not chip. You feel more confident—done up, even.
Unfortunately, nail enthusiasts have also suffered the consequences of regular manicures. While getting frequent manicures can add a fun aesthetic element to your style, they can also be quite damaging to your natural nail.
Getting a manicure involves a lot of chemicals—none of which are gentle or loving to your nails. For example, gel nail lovers need to soak their...
Concerns with air quality and pollution are growing in our more industrialized world. While this used to be an issue primarily focused in urban areas, poor air quality has grown to be a global concern (1). As such, anti-pollution claims in personal care products are also growing. Read on to learn the importance of incorporating these products into your skin care routine!
How Air Pollution Effects Your Skin
Air pollution can indeed impact skin. Just as skin is varied, its response to air quality is varied. For some, exposure to certain environmental factors can cause skin to become dry and...
All aspects of personal health and hygiene are important, but if there is one that is perhaps most commonly forgotten or neglected, it is your skin. For humans, our skin is the frontline of defense; it is the main barrier protecting the inside of the body from a harsh external environment. Thus, when your skin is damaged, it can let in certain irritants that can cause problems both mild and serious.
That’s why Nu Skin developed ageLOC LumiSpa: a new skin refining system that provides a revolutionary way to simultaneously treat and cleanse your skin.
Air quality concerns and pollution are growing in our more industrialized world. While this used to be a matter primarily for urban areas, poor air quality is global (1). As such, anti-pollution claims in personal care products are also growing. And there is a reason to be looking for such products.
Air pollution can indeed impact skin. Just as skin is varied, its response to air quality is varies. For some, skin may become dry and dull, yet others may experience discoloration and uneven skin tone, wrinkles, and/or fine lines. Some may experience oily skin, acne and/or sensitive skin (2)....
The epidermis, commonly referred to as skin, is composed of multiple layers. The outermost layer, the stratum corneum, is the visible portion of the epidermis. It needs to be continuously shed for a youthful look. For more information on exfoliation, see Exfoliation for a Radiant Glow. Daily cleansing assists in mechanically removing the outermost layer of dead skin cells. It also removes bacteria, viruses, dirt and pollutants which can adhere to the stratum corneum. Essentially, cleansing the skin removes this unwanted debris. It is surprising that 60% of millennials will skip this vital step of their cleansing routine because they...

When skin is young and healthy, it is smooth and evenly reflects light; it glows. This is due to the rate of which new cells are brought to the surface as older cells are continuously shed. The skin cells at the bottom layer of the epidermis, known as the stratum basale layer, constantly divide through cell division forming new keratinocytes (skin cells). This regeneration process is referred to as skin cell renewal.
With age, the skin cell renewal process slows, resulting in cells becoming stickier. This means that the cells do not shed as easily as before. As a result,...
What to Do If You Have a Reaction to New Skin Care Products
May 04, 2017
Many have experienced the excitement of getting new skin care products that they can’t wait to use, only to have a week or two pass before the excitement fades and their skin looks worse than it did before.

Here are a few steps to help you identify whether what you’re experiencing is simply your skin adjusting to something new, or if there is a greater issue.
The Modern Skin Care Regimen: Customized through ageLOC Me
March 09, 2017
If you consider yourself a savvy skin care consumer, you may be looking for solutions that address your unique skin care needs. Because there is no one-size-fits-all solution, everyone should consider a customized skin care regimen because, just like your fingerprint, no two individuals have the same skin.
While skin is very complex and unique, at the most fundamental level there are four basic skin types: normal, oily, dry, or combination. Since each skin type has its own distinguishing characteristics, there simply isn’t one solution that sufficiently treats all skin types. For example, if your skin is normal, it may...
