Your Day Spa Disposes of that Other Cause of Wrinkles

 We all dread the day they make their first appearance but it’s inevitably comes – and we suddenly notice them – fine lines, deep wrinkles, crow’s feet and other markings. If it seems as if these age manifestations are showing up somewhat earlier than anticipated, it may very well be because they are. The conventional wisdom attributed these unwelcome developments to age and exposure to the sun, both of which require time to do their damage. We now know that there is a far more pervasive cause that is equally responsible – sugar. And the La Vida of Washington veterans have found that the only effective way to deal with this menace is found at the day spa.

            There are many forms of sugar so it is impossible to totally eliminate it from the typical diet; nor is this particularly desirable since sugar is the body’s fuel – its source of energy. But when excess sugar attaches itself to cells in a process called glycation, it causes protein to stiffen and become distorted, processes which herald the onset of skin aging. This eventually translates to the surface epidermal layer developing wrinkles, become saggy and lessons its natural radiance. To make matters, these effects are cumulative; since you cannot stop eating, which means that, as a practical matter, you cannot interrupt the flow of various sugars into your metabolism, the effect of glycation compounds with time and is not limited to any age group or skin type.

            The most direct way to reverse the aging process due to glycation is the application of a powerful compound that can reduce these advanced glycation end products. The management at LaVida Massage of Washington, Mi after much diligent research and testing, has determined that the Glymed Plus line of specially formulated creams and lotions are far superior to any of the competing products available. Even more impressive is the unique way this group of creams and lotions interacts with their DNA Resent Face and Neck Cream, creating a virtually unbeatable anti-aging regimen proven highly successful.

            It is equally important that clients systematically reduce the excess sugar compounds from their metabolic systems. This is accomplished with the periodic application of a lymphatic massage, a procedure with the unique ability to harness the body’s own systems to flush these unwanted substances out of the metabolic pathways. The combination of the right nourishment that reinvigorates the skin and restores its youth, in tandem with the right protocol for cleansing the internal systems, provides the best prevention for premature wrinkles.
