Have you ever wondered why it is that some people appear to age better than others?  This is not always because of their lifestyle, diet, stress and sleep patterns.  Often it is because of their genes. This process is called intrinsic aging.

Intrinsic aging is caused by the genetic factors that govern how your skin ages. Extrinsic aging is governed by the external factors that cause your skin to age, this process is often referred to as photo-aging.  I like to put intrinsic aging into 2 groups – Melters & Crepers.

Melters show the signs of aging with the appearance of jowls and sagging, they require skin tightening.  Generally they have very few wrinkles but have a tired, drooping & sullen appearance. A depletion of healthy elastin and a sluggish lymph system is the usual cause for this condition.

Crepers are the people who present with wrinkles rather early with wrinkles becoming quite deep by their mid 40’s, they respond well to laser therapies.  These individuals generally have a tendency to not show signs of sagging but their skin can be rather dry, dehydrated and dull looking in appearance.  A depletion of healthy collagen & Natural Moisturising Factor is the main cause for this condition.

There is a third group of unlucky people who have both aging indicators present and this is usually exacerbated by poor lifestyle choices early in life, eg over exposure to sun, smoking and a poor diet.

So how do you know which group you fall into?  That is where your facialist can help.  As skincare professionals we are trained to pick up on these signs early, so all should be having regular facial treatments from their early 20’s in Australia to control the external and internal factors that govern how your skin ages.

Germaine De Cappuccini has broken up anti aging skincare & facials into 2 groups which use clinical, botanical and mechanical massage to control your intrinsic or genetic aging.

Time Expert Rides & Better Than Botox Facial – These home skincare & in clinic facial treatments are for the Crepers.  The patented and concentrated complexes found in these treatments plump wrinkles and relax the muscles that cause expression lines.  With just one Better Than Botox Facial your wrinkles will appear to be ironed out & your skin will be left firm, plump and dewy for weeks provided you are using the corresponding home care products.   By being committed to monthly facial treatments you will see dramatic results in a matter of months.  This is a  truly addictive facial treatment & home care product line.

Time Expert Lift & Vector Face Lift Facial – This combination of manual massage lifting, V-Matrix lifting and technologically advanced skincare complexes produces a dramatic lift with the first in clinic treatment and the results are only amplified with daily use of the clinical grade home care products.  As a Melter myself I have never used any skincare range that can improve clarity, lift and skin density like this clinic line, and the massage process in this facial is absolutely divine.

The Beauty Chef Glow Inner Beauty Powder – The best way to effect long term improvement of the skin is starting from the beginning, a healthy digestive system.  Topical skincare will only work so far, in order to reach optimal results you need to address nourishment of the anti aging processes with concentrated skin feeding nutrients.  The Glow Powder addresses all your gut needs, pre & pro biotics, EFA’s & antioxidants to feed your skin from within.
