We all know the immense benefits of probiotics internally. They are anti-inflammatory; facilitate digestion and healthy bowel movements, as well as many other things. Probiotics have beneficial effects on your overall health. Now, new science reveals Probiotics help support the immune system, combat imbalance and chronic disease, and re-awaken youthful processes within the body that slow with age. However, can topical probiotics help support skin health?
Skin is an organ of elimination. We secrete toxins through our sweat glands every day. Mybody is one of the first skin care lines that believe the power of Probiotics boosts skin’s health and appearance. Their topical Probiotics are non-living molecules from body friendly bacteria.
Beneficial For All Skin-Types, Topical Probiotics Are Proven To Help:
Reverse inflammation and redness
Boost collagen for fewer fine lines & wrinkles
Detoxify stressed, acne-prone skin
Rehydrate skin for a softer, resilient texture
Provide powerful antioxidant activity
Increase oxygen for a healthy, rosy glow
Probiotics are one of the new beauty breakthroughs shown to help with clearer skin, decreased skin sensitivity, redness, and inflammation according to the American Academy of Dermatology, 2014.
Mybody bypasses the old skincare technologies associated with injury, chronic inflammation and a damaged epidermis through powerful Probiotic Bioactives.
Epidermis is left intact to heighten immunity and trigger healthy collagen production
Long term results are maximized due to minimal stress and inflammation
Excessive stress depletes probiotic activity and weakens cellular communication
Impaired barrier function increases risk of inflammation sensitivity and dryness
Continued damage results in thinner skin with less collagen production
MyBody products support how the body repairs, defends and heals itself for profound and healthy skin results. Formulated with a board of medical physicians and skin scientists, MyBody ingredients include clinically validated probiotics and patented formulas to manage a variety of concerns, including dryness, roughness, wrinkles, fine lines, crow’s feet, hyperpigmentation, acne, redness and puffy eyes.

The heart found on the logo is a reminder that the skin and body work together and, when in balance, the outcome is a more youthful and healthy appearance.

With New Years Eve quickly approaching many of us have beauty resolutions at the top of our list. Look years younger without going under the knife! Micro-current devices are a great option for anyone looking to firm and tone their skin. This technology is designed to soften wrinkles and rejuvenate skin, including skin damaged by sunburn, acne, stretch marks, cellulite and scarring. When used on the face, the treatments have become known as a “non-surgical facelift.” Micro-current mimics the body’s own bio-electric current and works by passing low frequency, direct current through muscle tissue to stimulate the muscle fibers. At home micro-current tools are a very effective option and growing in popularity.
Our most popular micro-current device NuFace Trinity delivers unparalleled professional results in an easy to use at-home system. The NuFace Trinity is newly updated with an ergonomic design to deliver an amazing user experience.

If you’re like me, you may have sensitive skin. I made the mistake of using Retin-A years ago because I had heard of all the amazing benefits of retinol. It was simply too harsh for my sensitive skin and I quickly stopped using it.
So now what? I still want to reduce these fine lines and hyperpigmention!
Luckily, when I joined NIA24 as the company’s Vice President earlier this year, I was introduced to Intensive Retinol Repair. NIA24’s skin experts explained to me that Intensive Retinol Repair contains 5% of the active ingredient Pro-Niacin® which delivers niacin to the skin cells and promotes healthier looking skin.
I immediately started using the product. Sure, I was skeptical. I didn’t want the drying and irritation I experienced when I used Retin-A.
After just 2 weeks, I noticed my skin was smoother and my skin tone was more even! And I didn’t have any of the horrible, itchy dryness. After about a month, fine lines that bothered me before were gone!
So how does Intensive Retinol Repair work? This amazing product:
-Stimulates the repair of your skin’s DNA and undoes some of the damage caused by the sun, creating healthier skin.
-Enhances energy metabolism and skin cell turnover.
-Promotes the release of leptin, a natural skin repair hormone that helps to reduce existing hyperpigmentation.
-Stimulates a skin receptor that decreases future hyperpigmentation.
But don’t take my word for it! In a seven-site, physician-directed trial, 140 patients with mild to severe sun damage used NIA24 products featuring Pro-Niacin™ daily and:
-90% reduced their in hyperpigmentation
-82% improved skin texture
-81% improved skin tone
-80% increased skin smoothness
-68% reduced their fine lines and wrinkles
-53% improved firmness
And who better to get an endorsement from than The National Cancer Institute who recently chose the Pro-Niacin™ molecule for development as a potential skin cancer prevention agent.
