It’s no secret that what you eat can affect your skin. You might already try to eat foods high in antioxidants like vitamin A and vitamin E to help improve your complexion.
However, there’s another nutrient you might not be as familiar with that can do wonders for your skin.
Hyaluronic acid is a compound that occurs naturally in your body, and it is responsible for attracting and retaining moisture. It is thought to improve cell-to-cell interaction and promote collagen synthesis, which can prevent wrinkles and improve your skin’s texture.
Your body does make its own hyaluronic acid, but as you age, your production of it diminishes. Some people choose to inject hyaluronic acid as a dermal filler, which can help add volume to the skin.
Others apply it topically, which won’t produce as dramatic or lasting results—as it can’t reach the deepest layers of the skin—but can still smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
If you want to increase your levels of hyaluronic acid in other ways, you can look to your diet.
There are a number of foods that contain the compound that can help your skin stay supple and smooth.
Foods like leafy greens contain magnesium, which is a necessary catalyst to help with HA production in the body. Other foods that are high in magnesium include avocado, nuts, fruits and seeds. Salads loaded with all these ingredients are a great way to boost magnesium content while getting your fair share of other nutrients along with it as well.

Craziest Facial EVER?!!
What have I gotten myself into this time?? 😂
I was contacted by the owner, Jody, of DermaSpace in downtown Seattle to do a vlog about their strange but beneficial electrotherapy facial and I could have jumped out of my seat when I saw the email. What an amazing concept and being the adventurous gal that I am,
I said "OF COURSE I will let you hook me up to an electrical current and attach it to my face."
This treatment has actually been around for a really long time and is even used with athletes to help work topical aid into their sore muscles. Makes sense that you could do the same with skincare remedies for your face. Celebrities have discovered this treatment and it is widely used in major cities like NY, LA, and now Seattle!
Jody started out with a gentle face cleanse and exfoliated then brought this sucker out you see below. Most people don't watch the process live as they are getting it but since I was balancing my camera on my stomach I could see the viewfinder the whole time and I couldn't help but giggle.
I looked like a Teddy Bear.
This cone was actually around back in the 1930's. I relate it to the concept of putting a towel over your head then standing over hot water to steam. This is great for opening pores and assisting with cleaning them out. So the cone essentially "steamed my face" and I tell you what, it smelled reaaallly good in their and was quite relaxing!
I was so thankful to be in an environment where my filming not only wasn't awkward but invited so I got to play with different camera angles and such. What a relief!
After 15 minutes the cone was removed and he used a very small vacuum device as well as a rolling technique on any problem areas I had to extract the dirt below the surface. I always pack on so much foundation on my nose since that's (unfortunately) the one place I sunburn the most so the skin won't cover with just one layer of foundation. I feel that I really have to pack it on, hence, more dirt/foundation/product jammed into my pores. I've noticed little specks on the tip of it and it always bothered me. This part actually did hurt just a tad because it was my first facial and grrrrl, my skin was capital D-i-r-t-y.
Next, you will see why this process is actually known as
"The Hannibal Lecter Facial"
The machine goes up to a level 10 but newbies start at about a 1 or a 2.
He did try a little tester to see how high it would go before I felt anything and I got to a six before I said, "Oh yeaaah I feel it" I thought I really was dead inside for a second there.
Light tingles vibrate throughout the face and I could visually see my heart beat pulsating the ceiling. That's how I knew the blood was really circulating and made me think, "MAAAN I'm going to come out of this thing like I took that youth serum on Death Becomes Her!!"
I sat for about 20 mns and just relaxed in thought, enjoying the music.
The feel of my skin afterwords was UNREAL. It's hard to explain but it was like someone else's skin. I didn't recognize the feeling of it with my fingertips. It was a little red like Jody said it would be and I had a few spots where there were more focused extractions. The little brown dots on my nose, all GONE! I almost don't want to wear makeup at the moment; I just want to enjoy my young looking and feeling skin for awhile before I go slapping on my usual spackle.
So I have an entire video I made of the experience and I would love for you to go watch and give it a big thumbs up. Giggle along with me.
Also, Jody has mentioned that he isn't taking any new clients but has three estheticians in his office that would gladly provide this exact same service plus, new clients get $15 off their first visit!
If you go let them know I sent ya!
You can get more info on their website here DermaSpace.
The office is located in downtown Seattle next to Nordstrom.
Thanks for visiting! :)

Just a quick note to all our followers that we wish you a very Happy Holiday season and look forward to a fab 2017.
DRAMATICALLY IMPROVE THE LOOK AND FEEL OF YOUR SKIN WITH THE SOOTHING, RELAXING ENERGY OF CELLUMA!
Celluma’s unique LED technology emits safe, UV-free low-level light energy that profoundly affects tissue at the cellular level. Blue, red and near-infrared lights are the most commonly used wavelengths in LED phototherapy. These specific wavelengths are well researched and scientifically proven to produce therapeutic benefits. Blue light penetrates through the epidermis and is known to kill P. acnes bacteria. Red light penetrates into the dermal layer and has been shown to enhance collagen and elastin production through photo-biostimulation of fibroblasts for improved skin tone, quality, clarity, and texture. Near-infrared light penetrates deepest to increase micro-circulation and tissue repair, as well as decrease inflammation and reduce pain.
WITH CELLUMA - ACNE DOESN'T STAND A CHANCE
Let’s clarify: When P. acne bacteria builds up in pores, skin becomes inflamed, causing acne lesions and blemishes. Celluma light therapy works safely and effectively, without abrasive chemicals, harmful UV-rays or side effects, to destroy this acne-causing bacteria — not only clearing up existing blemishes, but preventing future breakouts before they happen.
THE RESULTS ARE ILLUMINATING
Reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, while experiencing an improvement in skin texture, quality and smoothness. Using wavelengths that are scientifically proven to stimulate fibroblasts to increase collagen and elastin, Celluma’s low-level light therapy is a safe, effective way to achieve a healthy, youthful glow in a natural, non-toxic, non-invasive manner.
LED THERAPY CAN BE ADDED TO MOST OF OUR EXISTING TREATMENTS - JUST MENTION IT WHEN YOU ARRIVE TO YOUR SCHEDULED APPOINTMENT.
Your skincare professional will advise you.
$30 ADDITIONAL CHARGE
(please note this will increase your appointment by approximately 30 minutes)
