Royal Jelly for Skin Care

If you were to break Royal Jelly down into its individual components, you would find that it is made up of mostly water (60 – 70%), protein (about 12 – 15 %), and sugar (10 – 16%). The remaining components include fats, salts, amino acids and an abundance of vital minerals and vitamins. In an active bee colony, worker bees feed these rich secretions to bee larvae.

After a few days of giving over their Royal Jelly, the worker bees begin to focus only on the larvae that exhibit the greatest chance of becoming the Queen. Only one will be lucky enough to continue receiving the Royal Jelly and soon will develop into the Queen.

And that is how Royal Jelly got its royal reputation. There are many ways to use Royal Jelly including using it as part of an effective skin care routine. After all, it makes sense that if Royal Jelly can help produce a Queen Bee that is better and stronger than the rest, then anyone who uses Royal Jelly on his or her skin should be able to reap such royal benefits as well!

Some Royal Jelly Skin Care Uses

Readily available from distributors around the world, Royal Jelly comes in capsule and liquid form. It’s available as a chewable tablet and also as a powder and an elixir. When Royal Jelly will be used as part of a skin care routine, you need only massage a small amount into the skin. Within seconds, the skin will begin feeling tighter and fine lines and wrinkles will be much less noticeable. You’ll feel almost as if you’ve just had a facelift, except there won’t be any pain and you will have spent only a small fraction of the cost!

If you live in a colder, harsher climate, your skin will benefit from a regular Royal Jelly skin care routine. Dry skin looks dull, red and blotchy. It makes a person appear much older that he or she is. Skin that’s hydrated appears more vibrant. Royal Jelly’s moisturizing qualities give skin a fresh feeling, one that’s soft and smooth.

You can easily spend hundreds of dollars on skin care products, but you won’t have to if you let Royal Jelly work its magic on your skin. Apply it all over your body – your hands, legs, back, and anywhere your skin needs a bit of help. When you’re done, your skin will definitely thank you.

Keep Skin Looking Healthy

The best way to keep skin looking healthy – young, fair, radiant, supple, soft and wrinkle free – is to keep out of the sun.

Ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun bring about a healthy-looking tan, but do much damage to the skin in terms of pigmentation, sunburn and loss of elasticity. These can lead to premature aging in the form of wrinkles, fine lines, sagging, dark skin, uneven skin tone, loss of translucency, enlarged pores and dryness. Even the best of genetics, topical skin lightening treatments and oral skin supplements would be of little use if one tans mercilessly and regularly.

Keeping out of the sun helps, but if you cannot avoid it, you will have to ensure that you use a sunscreen. This is especially crucial if sun exposure is for an extended period of time.

Assuming that one is already sensible about sun exposure, how can we then further improve our skin condition? We know that certain oral supplements are effective for good skin health, but which are these supplements and how effective are they?

Supplement From Within

The first group would be vitamins and minerals, essential for proper functioning of every organ.

The vitamins and minerals that can affect skin health include the B-complex, especially B1 (thiamine), B2 (riboflavin) and B12 (cyancobalamine). Overt deficiencies of vitamins B1 and B2 are known to cause special forms of dermatitis (a kind of skin inflammation). B12 deficiency is particularly detrimental to neurons and rapidly dividing cells, including skin cells.

Besides the B vitamins, deficiency of vitamin C, iron and copper also affect skin health. All three are important for the synthesis of collagen, a key structural protein in the skin, which fills the skin and gives it tone.

Vitamin A is critical for the normal life cycle of skin cells. Vitamin A deficiency causes skin to become dry, fragile and prone to wrinkles. On the other hand, excessive Vitamin A intake may cause serious toxicity and should be avoided.

Vitamins C and E, and beta-carotene have been touted as anti-oxidants that reduce free radicals. (Free radicals result in skin degeneration and aging.) However, while free radicals and the role of anti-oxidants are beyond doubt, clinical results have not conclusively proved if supplementary vitamins and other micronutrients improve the skin quality and defy the aging process.

Excessive doses can be just as harmful as deficiencies, so it is best to abide by the recommended daily allowance (RDA).

Topical Help

Oral supplements should go hand-in-hand with topical applications – sunscreen of at least SPF 30, creams (preferably with skin whitening agents) and moisturizer (preferably with skin lightening agents). Compared with topical applications, the effects of oral supplements are slower and more subtle. Consumers have to be realistic about their expectations because results certainly will not be seen in 7 days or 2 weeks.

We recommend a holistic approach to skin health, comprising:

# A healthy balanced diet comprising all food groups as well as vitamins, minerals and micronutrients.

# Keep a happy positive mood. It is well documented that some skin conditions – such as acne and eczema – are more prevalent among the stressed.

# If you smoke, quit smoking. Smoke causes free radicals, damages the microcirculation of skin and also causes staining of teeth and other discoloration.

# Minimize sun exposure and use a good sunscreen on a daily basis.

 

How to Prepare Skin For Winter?

– Bathing – Hot water bath breaks body oil that is easily washable. If you cannot avoid hot bath, add oils like almond, sesame or other bath oils to your water. Alternatively you can add milk to your bath water. It restores the oils leaving it soft and supple.

– Cleanse and Exfoliate – Before you begin your bath, exfoliate your skin with loofah. Avoid strong base ingredients and anti bacterial products; opt for gentle moisturizing revitalizing products.

– Drink at least 8 – 10 glasses of water every day. By keeping your skin well hydrated, your skin will not suffer from dryness, rashes and itchiness. Avoid excessive usage of caffeine beverages that strips moisture from the skin.

– Moisturize properly and your skin will remain soft and supple all through winter. Use moisturizer that has the necessary vitamins and hydration properties for your skin. One should apply moisturizer within a minute or so of having a shower or bath. Damp skin traps the water in the upper layers and decreases dryness and itching.

– Keep petroleum jelly nearby. Dab some of it on problem areas to seal the moisture and heal the dry skin. You can rub it on all the dry areas of the body. It is very soothing backup substitute.

– If possible, try taking a multi vitamin pill that has good dose of vitamins B, C and E. It will help your skin as well as ward off common cold. Avoid overdose multivitamin pills for adverse effects.

– Use sunscreen in winter as you would in summer. Ideal sunscreen is one which is light, oil free and has SPF 15.

– If you can afford to going to spas for luxurious and rejuvenating treatments for winter weary skin, there is nothing like it. Spa and other hydration treatments super hydrate your skin.

 

Tips Dealing with Your Skin Care Issues

1. Try to use natural or organic products whenever possible.

2. Look for DSR (Dermal Surface Renewal technology), which assists in soothing out the age lines, crows feet, and general dullness.

3. Try finding products that have regisomes. These have qualities, among other things, to help rejuvenate your skin while sleeping.

4. Seek out products that contain Proteo-C as well as Proflavonol-T which offer protection from aging as a result of exposure to elements such as sun, pollution, and the overall environment.

5. When possible, use products that are free from pareben. Researchers are starting to find that parebens are found in benign as well as malignant human breast tumors. Parebens are found in many products used in daily living from soaps and shampoos. And though there is always debate in the medical community, it’s better to avoid certain ingredients.

6. Drink plenty of that good fashioned H-2-0 or water. This will hydrate your skin and hair and get rid of toxins out of your body. Drink plenty of water! Water hydrates skin and hair as well as flushes toxins out of the body.

7. Reduce stress! Do yoga, go jogging, take a time management course or whatever to help manage stress levels more efficiently. This will serve all areas of your life, not least of which your skin.

Following these general guidelines can save you time and money, as well as provide you with a personalized regimen that you can “set and forget”, and get on with the rest of your life.
