Our modern lifestyle constantly exposes the skin to environmental stressors such as: UV radiation, pollution and other toxins. Perfected over decades of research and development, this highly advanced formula restores skin that is stressed, dulled, and dried by lifestyle and environmental factors. Phormula 3-9 is a direct reflection of the deep, unabiding belief that we can elicit the skin’s natural beauty response when we properly honor the miracle that it is. By sealing technologically advanced ingredients within a ‘health dome’ 3-9 acts as a second skin and provides intense oxygenation and thorough re-hydration.
THE UNTOLD STORY OF PHORMULA 3-9
It is Erno Laszlo’s masterpiece, one of the original formulas developed by Dr. Laszlo and relentlessly improved over time. A total of eight iterations were created between 1917 and 1973 specifically for the following muses: Princess Stephanie, Frida Gombaszögi (early Hungarian actress), Greta Garbo, Lillian Gish, The Duchess of Windsor, Hubert De Givenchy, Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe respectively (a version of the Phormula was created for Marilyn to treat her post-surgical abdominal scar tissue).
The current and ninth iteration was discovered inadvertently in 2001 by a researcher sorting through the doctor’s personal archives. Nearly 30 years had passed since Dr. Laszlo penned the original formulation, and it was anticipated that it might require updating. What was discovered, however, was that the transcript Dr. Laszlo left behind was already a high-tech hybrid, and only small alterations were made in the formula to capitalize on some of the newest breakthroughs in anti-aging actives.
The exact formula for 3-9 is a closely guarded secret. It contains a blend of rich, powerful and time honored ingredients, such as raspberry stem cells- which repair and increase the antioxidant function in human DNA and extend cell longevity. A few of the key plant derived oils include Tacamahca Seed Oil, a healing oil from sacred trees in the South Pacific; Chaulmoogra Oil, a natural antibacterial agent derived from a tree in East India and Aleurites Fordi Oil, an extracted oil that’s derived from a genus that includes mustard, cabbage and broccoli.

With so many ingredients and buzz words in skin care it can be hard to keep up. But don’t fret because we are going to keep you in the know by defining peptides.
Peptides are naturally occurring chemical messengers, each one instructs the skin to behave in a certain manner. Some peptides can reduce the signs of aging by increasing collagen production, which will firm the skin from the inside. Other peptides send the message for the skin to “relax” and the result is wrinkle reduction.
Peter Thomas Roth UnWrinkle has the peptide Tripeptide, synthetic snake venom that temporarily debilitates the muscle, keeping it from contracting and thereby smoothing lines in the wrinkle prone area.
If you’d like to indulge your skin in the ultimate spa experience, look towards Elemis. One of their most popular and effective products to date is the Pro-Collagen Marine Cream.
This luxurious cream features the marine extract Padina Pavonica which helps to offer great anti-aging benefits in just over two weeks of use. The product is tried and tested to reduce wrinkles by 19% and increase hydration by up to 45%. The formulation also contains Ginko Biloba to stimulate cells and Porphyridium to help promote cell regeneration. If you have the consistency to use this product in your daily regimen and want that firm and lifted appearance over time then you should look into this gratifying product.
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.
Wouldn’t it be nice to have an additional aid or so goes the saying “an extra set of hands” when it comes to looking good? Well, here comes big help from a small package! Enjoy some spare time and treat your eyes to a mini spa session. Recently, eye masks or eye patches have made their way into the spotlight. If you just don’t have time or cannot stay consistent to using a daily eye product then these would be just the help you need.

We all know that when it comes to skin health, wearing sunscreen on a daily basis is as essential as drinking plenty of water, taking our vitamins, and getting ample sleep. In fact, we know that sunscreen is the single most important step in our skincare regimen. What many of us don’t know if that most conventional sunscreen products only protect against UVB rays, but UVA rays, which are invisible, are just as damaging to our skin. UVB rays are known as the burning rays, the ones that force melanocytes into overdrive to produce color to protect our cells, and thus a tan line is an indicator of skin damage. UVA rays are the aging rays, the ones that makes our skin crinkly and wrinkly – but don’t always produce a burn. Both UVA and UVB rays are ever present, even on cloudy days. That’s why it’s of the utmost importance to wear sunscreen on a daily basis to protect your skin from both UVA and UVB damage.
The new StriVectin-SH Age Protect SPF 30 is an ultra sheer yet highly potent oil-free treatment sunscreen that delivers the highest grade UVA protection available while shielding from UVB rays with sun protection factor of 30. This elegant formula also contains the patented NIA-144 molecule, which is clinically proven to repair sun damage while strengthening the skin’s barrier. The StriVectin-SH formula also contains a potent berry antioxidant blend to protect the cells and collagen against degradation and free radicals. And the product not only smells like delicious cucumber but also soothes the skin with cucumber and rose extracts.
Do you like StriVectin? We love the line, too! And we’re planning a very special giveaway surprise for you!!! Make sure to enter into our current giveaway on our Facebook page!
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. TheJane 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.
