Sleep Your Way to Healthier-Looking Skin

 

 

Waking up to beautiful-looking skin is not a dream. Adequate sleep is vital for skin health. It’s a dynamic time when your body and mind rebalance. Sleep loss can lead to dull-looking skin, dark circles under the eyes, and eventually fine lines. Knowing the body repairs itself and builds up energy for the next day during deep sleep, that’s why I am such a strong advocate of the importance of quality sleep. It’s essential if you want to wake up looking and feeling refreshed.

 

In addition to ensuring your body receives restful sleep to achieve your dream skin, it is important to follow a regular skincare regimen using quality products. After being out and about all day, your skin needs to be cleansed and moisturized with quality skincare products to help maintain its youthful appearance. You can also do your part to promote healthy-looking skin with a high-performance night treatment. A quality, facial cream designed for use at night, can help replenish skin that needs an extra boost of hydration.

 

Investing in a high-quality night cream to use all year around means you can steep skin in moisture while you sleep so you are hydrated and glowing when you wake. When I formulated my line of advanced, targeted treatments, I did it to further enhance the results of The Method, my signature three-step regimen of Polish, Cleanse and Nourish. With Intensive Night Treatment, you can go to sleep knowing you are providing your skin with the essential fatty acids and antioxidants that help it retain moisture and look younger. The fact that it’s a nighttime product means it is designed to be applied during the hours of sleep, when the body is most open to receiving skincare benefits.

 

At the heart of the formula, this luxurious anti-aging cream is developed with skin beneficial hydrating agents including Hylaplex™ and Maruala Oil which provide a moisture barrier, helping skin retain healthy hydration for a smoother, plumper appearance and renewed radiance. It also helps hydrate skin to improve the appearance of wrinkles.

 

Sleep does wonders for us, and beauty sleep is not just a concept. Getting your beauty sleep will help you achieve that all-over luminescence we all desire. Once you are on a good sleep schedule, you will be surprised to see the difference in your life – mentally, emotionally and physically.

Dermatology Treatments in Summer

When summer arrives, many of us become suddenly aware of our skin’s imperfections. Time in the sun can be unequivocally therapeutic, but it also means more sun damage. Joyful hours in the sunshine can also come with sunspots, dull or uneven skin tone, sagginess, and fine lines and wrinkles. So are there dermatology treatments that allow you to revel in the summer sun and still treat your skin to keep it looking youthful, radiant and healthy all season? Absolutely. Just select a regimen of in-office dermatology treatments that pinpoint and treat the results of UV damage, as well as skincare treatments that treat and protect your skin from further harm.

Benefits of Probiotic Yogurt for Skin

You’ve probably noticed that skincare goes through trends in the same way that fashion does. From cucumbers on tired eyes to vampire facials, skincare seems to have seen it all. But now, many dermatologists are publicizing the benefits of simple ingredients—ingredients you often find in your own kitchen. Recently, Dr. Harold Lancer was featured on the Dr. Oz Show, where he discussed the anti-aging benefits of using probiotic yogurt on your skin.

Endymed Intensif

What is Endymed?

Spring is on its way, which means we’ll be showing a lot more skin in a matter of weeks. With shorter hemlines, sleeveless silhouettes, deep-V necklines, and bright sunlight on the horizon, you might be looking into ways to make your skin look younger and firmer, even in the harshest lighting. Exercise, a healthy diet, and advanced skincare are all a fantastic start, but sometimes skin needs additional treatments to look revived, refreshed, and its best. For that, you’ll want to head to your dermatologist for the most advanced treatments for improving the way your skin looks and feels.

Flash Forward: Skincare Trends for 2017

When it comes to trends for 2017, the focus is on skin. One glance at runways during Fashion Week tells you that whether the look is natural or dramatic, skin is in. Makeup looks this season run the gamut from bare to theatrical, but the constant was the perfect canvas behind them all. No matter what kind of look you’re going for in 2017, you’ll want to make sure you’re taking good care of your skin.

Dr. Lancer Devotee: Ryan Seacrest

lancer_seacrest

They call him the hardest working man in Hollywood, so it only stands to reason that he’d need a skincare regimen that works overtime too. With a packed schedule that spans from early a.m. call times for On Air with Ryan Seacrest to evenings hosting American Idol and production work sandwiched in between, you’d think the toll of his demanding schedule might show up on his face. But Ryan Seacrest doesn’t look a day over 29. (He’s actually 39.) Of course, with so little time to spare, Ryan requires a pared down skincare system, which is why he’s a fan of our simple, at-home, 3-step Method. He has also spilled Dr. L’s skincare secrets on air (listen here). And when he is able to squeeze in a visit to our dermatology offices, he can’t resist a facial with our resident aesthetician Louise Deschamps for the ultimate Lancer glow.

Younger-Approved Recipe: Grilled Chicken Kale Salad

lancer_younger_kalesaladrecipe_2

Last week, we mentioned a few of Dr. Lancer’s dietary guidelines for younger-looking skin (and weight loss – he lost 60 lbs. on the Younger diet), so this week, we thought we’d share one of our Younger-approved recipes: Grilled Chicken Kale Salad. This salad is a favorite of our staff and is packed with nutrients, protein and healthy fats but free of salt, starches and dairy.  Here’s how to make it:

Ingredients
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for brushing
1 large bunch kale, stems removed, leaves torn (about 10 cups)
3 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
freshly ground pepper, savory spices (rosemary, oregano)
2 large skinless, boneless chicken breasts (about 1 1/2 pounds)
4 cups mixed salad greens
1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

 

Directions
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Toss the tomatoes with 1/2 tablespoon olive oil on a rimmed baking sheet; spread in a single layer and roast 5 minutes. Toss the kale in a large bowl with the garlic, 1/2 tablespoon olive oil, and pepper to taste. Roast until the kale is crisp, stirring once, 15 to 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, preheat a grill or grill pan to medium and brush with olive oil. Slice the chicken breasts in half horizontally to make 4 cutlets. Coat evenly with 1/2 tablespoon olive oil and season with pepper and/or savory spices. Grill the chicken until well marked and cooked through, 2 to 4 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate.

Toss the kale, the remaining 1/2 tablespoon olive oil, the salad greens, tomatoes, lemon juice, and pepper to taste in a large bowl. Divide the chicken among plates and top with any collected juices. Serve with the kale salad.

Enjoy!

5 Easy-to-Implement Tips from Younger

lancer_skincare_younger

When it comes to staying youthful, there are tons of little tweaks you can make to your lifestyle to keep aging at bay. And, many of them aren’t too arduous. Here are 5 quick and easy tips from Dr. Lancer’s best-selling book Younger that you can implement today:

Move. You don’t have to hit SoulCycle five times a week or train for a marathon. (In fact, working out too intensely can actually speed up aging.) But you do need to make moderate exercise a part of your routine. So take a long walk with a friend, attend a yoga class or go for a bike ride. If you can’t get outdoors, spend 30 minutes doing a workout video or using resistance bands at home.

Pass the salt. Well, what we really mean is pass on the salt. Too much salt causes inflammation in the body and can exacerbate acne. Try seasoning your food with fresh lemon, lime or roasted garlic instead. This week, Dr. Lancer shared a list of the foods he suggests avoiding with StyleBistro. Following these guidelines, by the way, caused him to lose 60 lbs – no joke. Click here for the complete list.

Check your water levels. Staying properly hydrated means more than just downing your eight glasses of H2O each day. If you drink coffee or alcohol, make sure you drink at least one extra glass of water to offset each cocktail or caffeinated beverage. And fill your plate with foods rich in Omega-3s, which help to keep skin supple.

Sleep in. Now you have a valid excuse to hit the snooze button. Your body repairs itself while you sleep, so make sure you’re getting enough and give yourself those extra few minutes of precious shut-eye in the morning whenever you can. If you’re a morning person, move your bedtime up a half hour and catch some extra nighttime zzzzs.

Change up your sleep position. You know when you wake up with creases from your bedding criss-crossing your face? Well, when you sleep in the same position every night, your cheek, jawline, and neck are pushed against the pillow, causing your skin to be folded or creased for several hours. Over the years, those folds become etched into your skin to form sleep lines. So alternate the side you sleep on, or better yet, sleep on your back.
