The warm weather means the living’s easy, you kick back and have a margarita with the girlfriends, a glass of wine with the husband, a beer or two at the neighborhood cookout. Before you know it, the pretty fresh-faced girl that you were in June is looking ten years older by August.
We wonder… how does alcohol affect the way we look? While we’re not here to preach and tell you that drinking is all bad business we do want to warn you that overindulging too frequently can make you look older.
Alcohol can cause wrinkles. It dehydrates the skin, delaying the production of collagen and in turn deepening lines.
Because alcohol dehydrates the body it also slows down cellular turnover, which means dull skin. By quenching your thirst with an ice cold beer you’re not quenching your body’s need for water, and lack of water means your skin looks even duller. Sugary drinks are a double-whammy, the sugar molecules in sweet beverages cause glycation, a process in which sugar attaches to proteins, causing brittle and weak collagen.
Alcohol makes the eyes and face puffy, too. It dilates blood vessels and causes redistribution of fluids, which is then most apparent around the eye area.
Alcohol disrupts a healthy diet. Nobody wants to eat spinach after a night of drinking, and that’s because the body is trying to bring itself into balance by craving greasier and saltier foods which balance out alcohol’s high acid content.
If you happen to drink one too many daiquiris anyway remember to rehydrate before bed by drinking a big glass of water, and applying a hyaluronic-rich serum or cream (we like Goldfaden Blueberry and Pomegranate Anti-Glycation Hydrating Serum). In the morning de-puff with a cold compress or ice mask.
These days most of us are looking for easy to use products that are affordable and effective. We often look to products that provide a multitude of different benefits, too. There is a thin line between skin care and cosmetics but there are mergers between the two. A very important step in any daytime regimen which comes before any cosmetic application is a good primer. You can save yourself some time by looking for a primer that offers added anti-aging benefits. There are all kinds of different ones to choose from but here are some of our favorite primers to add into your beauty regimen.
- Boscia Skin Perfecting Primer: Contains Hydroxyproline and Lactobacillus which can leave skin looking smooth without an oily appearance. This product also contains Willow Herb, a unique anti-irritant, and Jojoba Leaf, a strong and effective antioxidant.
- Fusion Beauty Prime Results Anti-Wrinkle Primer: Contains Matrixyl 3000™ to help improve the appearance of skin elasticity and tone, Rosa Multiflora Fruit Extract which can visibly reduces the appearance of adult pores, peptides to help improve skin firmness and Hyaluronic which helps to immediately plump fine lines or wrinkles.
- Peter Thomas Roth UnWrinkle Primer: Containing six different peptides & neuropeptides, Vitamin E, Vitamin C & Vitamin A to improve skin tone and texture.
So before you just throw on any old primer before your foundation, make sure to use one that benefits your skin, too!

It’s often said that beauty is pain, but are injections and surgery truly necessary? Before running to the derm for your next Botox appointment you may consider weighing your options. Dr. Nicolas Perricone has recently launched his latest wonder product Acyl-Glutathione (a.k.a. the Crease Cure), which delivers impressive results without going under the knife.
Acyl-Glutathione addresses the accelerated signs of aging and helps restore skin to a more youthful appearance. Glutathione is a prominent antioxidant that rapidly depletes with age, stress, and environmental damage. Its replenishment is critical to help the skin’s defense against accelerated aging. Acyl-Glutathione can be used as both a preventative and corrective treatment.
A four week independent consumer use study revealed astonishing results. 85% saw a reduction in the appearance of horizontal forehead creases, 90% saw a reduction in the appearance of eleven lines, 85% saw a reduction in the appearance of smile lines, 88% saw a reduction in the appearance of marionette lines, and 90% saw an improvement in the overall youthfulness of their skin and felt more confident about their skin.
SkinStore customers agree, CobraChick222 from Michigan said, “With continued use, my forehead is completely crease-free and lines between my brows are virtually invisible – I’m 44! I have deep nasal labial folds, and after using Acyl just a short amount of time, I’m beginning to see a lifting and release of the folds.”
The results speak for themselves!

Introducing the newest anti-aging product from Dr. Perricone: Perricone MD Acyl-Glutathione.
Acyl-Glutathione is the first patent-pending skincare treatment to reduce the appearance of creases. When applied twice daily customers have seen dramatic results in just 30 days in forehead, smile, brow, and marionette creases:
Glutathione (glue-ta-thigh-on) or otherwise known as GSH is considered a super antioxidant that helps our bodies fight off toxins that are associated with environmental pollution, poor diet, and stress. Glutathione is actually a protein that is naturally produced in our bodies but healthy levels are depleted due to an increase of toxins in the body and as we age.
Glutathione boosts the immune system, detoxifies the body and acts as a powerful antioxidant. Without glutathione in our bodies, other antioxidants such has vitamins C and E are not as effective and can not do their job properly. Glutathione will help to slow down the skin’s aging process by protecting the skin from free radical damage.
Perricone MD Acyl-Glutathione will help to diminish fine lines and wrinkles, firm and tighten the skin while reducing pore size and improving the texture of the skin. It will also help to hydrate the skin while retaining moisture, and adding radiance to the skin. Perhaps the most noticeable difference in the skin is the reduction of facial creases in the forehead area, smile, and marionette lines. Acyl-Glutathione also contains Dr. Perricone’s key DMAE complex to help tighten and firm the skin. Other key ingredients include squalane, glycolic acid, alpha-lipoic acid, and a blend of peptides.
Use this product as a preventative and corrective treatment to improve the overall health and condition of your skin.

Dark circles and under eye bags make us look tired and frazzled and let’s face it… we sometimes feel that way, but don’t necessarily want to look like we’re exhausted and stressed. With the right products, we can offer an alternative to those heavy creams and concealers that do nothing but discourage you.
Most under eye dark circles and bags are caused by leaking blood vessels and inflammation. Allergies, diet, and stress are contributing factors as well. It is important when selecting an eye product for these concerns, that you try something with caffeine. Caffeine will help to constrict blood vessels and address puffiness. One product that we highly suggest is the Anti-Aging Eye Cream by Glytone. This little eye saver contains caffeine, licorice extract, red tea, and glycolic acid. Red tea also works great for de-puffing, and the licorice extract will brighten the under-eye area. Another great eye product with caffeine is the La Roche Posay Hydraphase UV Eyes Hydrating Protective Eye Cream. This eye cream is very hydrating; safe for sensitive eyes, and also contains an SPF 29. Since the eye area is the most delicate skin on our bodies, it is important to protect it with an SPF.
Now that we have the treatment products under control, we suggest a good under-eye cover up product. The Jane Iredale Circle Delete comes in three different color choices, containing two customized shades in one product. This is not only a concealer but a treatment product because it contains conditioners like avocado oil and Vitamins A, C, D, and E. It also has light reflecting elements to nicely disguise any under-eye flaws.
Whatever products you decide to use, remember it’s important to use a skin care product to address your concerns first; then add a concealing product to maximize your results.
