An article was recently published in US Weekly about how Courteney Cox is scared of aging and is doing everything she can to combat what nature is throwing her way and on her fear of turning 50.
Courteney Cox says she grew up in a home that looks and aesthetics were on top of the list of family values. Her parents look good and take care of themselves. Courtney is going one-step further than eating well and exercising she is trying out new treatments to scare the aging monster away.
Now I ask you, do you have to become addicted to invasive and expensive treatments to take care of yourself, your skin and to look beautiful? The answer is no.
Over the last decade, major advancements have been made in laser treatments. In the early years continuous wave carbon dioxide laser was used to resurface skin, while results are positive many patients suffered from redness and swelling. Innovation has brought about a new generation in lasers, however the price is still high and it is still considered an invasive treatment.
Surgical facelifts are often the route that “aging” women go down to rejuvenate their looks. Yes, facelifts are invasive – very! Surgery. Let me remind you it might change the way you look but it doesn’t stop the aging process.
There are fillers that you can have injected into your skin to make your skin look plumper and fill in the lines and wrinkles but those also come back, and you have to sit through many sessions of needles being injected into you.
Today with the advancement in aesthetics, you can give your skin with the nourishment it needs, rejuvenation, lifting, filling and peeling, with the right combination of non-invasive technology and advanced formulas of ingredients.
Surgically changing your face does not change the long-term quality of your skin or permanently fight aging, however taking care of your skin and using the right products can slow down the effects of aging. Yes, either way it takes a commitment to see results. It is just like changing your diet so that your body will be healthier – you make it part of your lifestyle.
Which way are you going to go? Are you afraid of aging?
As the temperatures drop outside, and the heating goes on in-side, your skin goes into Winter Mode and your daily skincare regimen should change with the season.
Collagen and Elastin are the two major proteins that are responsible for making your skin healthy looking when everything is balanced. However, as we get older and in the colder months, these two proteins slow down in production and you feel it on your skin.
Synoia has recently added a new treatment capsule to the WISHPro line of treatments. The Hyaluronic Infusion is made from Hyaluronic Acid, Witch Hazel, Vitamin E, Aloe Vera Extract, Dead Sea Minerals, and Castor Oil. The combination of these ingredients will especially help you through the winter months. The Hyaluronic Infusion helps stimulate collagen and elastin production, reduces Trans Epidermal Water Loss (TEWL) and it will keep your skin moisturized from the under layers of your skin. This is a great treatment for winter months, (but not only!)
Daily Winter Skincare Tips
The dry winter air outside causes your skin to lose its natural moisture, and those strong (not Sandy) winds can cause chapping, together with the furnace racing your skin needs protection.
- Cover your face if you are outdoors.
- Add humidity to your home either by keeping a bowl of fresh water near a radiator vent, hang your damp towels to dry in the house, or buy a humidifier, (great for your hair too).
- Although you love your hot showers in cold weather, it is better for your skin to take a shorter lukewarm shower.
- Apply a moisturizer on your body while your body is still slightly damp – keeping as much moisture in, as possible.
- Take care of your lips! Use balm or a lip-gloss with moisturizer in it. In addition, yes, stop licking your lips.Don’t forget the sunscreen – winter sun is full of dangerous rays even though it is cold and windy. UVA and UVB

Give A Day
Many breast cancer patients suffer from dry and irritated skin during and after radiation treatments. A way to give back is to offer treatments to women in need. Call your local organization and ask if they can help give you names.
For some people after radiation treatments Calendula has soothed and helped heal radiation dermatitis. Calendula oil has antiseptic, anti fungal and anti-inflammatory properties. The WISHPro Calming Milk Treatment Capsule together with BlueV technology (Blue LED) might be the perfect facial, neck and shoulder treatment these special women need and would appreciate. Of course, they should always ask their doctor first.
History is full of descriptions of beautiful women. Poetic descriptions of their body shape over the course of time have changed from being a mirror image of the ancient Egyptian and Greek gods to the plump well-rounded “fertile” look of the middle ages, cinched waists, flat chests and bell shaped bottoms, to the tight corsets with bustles and overflowing cleavage, to the mannish look of the 1920’s and the athletic healthy body of the 21st century. The only feature that has not gone through a descriptive change is the woman’s skin. Throughout history, women have been described by their clear, fresh, glowing and soft as silk skin regardless of their geographical placement or skin color.
How Did They Achieve Skin Perfection?
Ancient text is full of original pharmacological prescriptions for cosmetics and skin care. The use of oils, balms, honey, salt and Shea butter has been documented since the times of the Egyptians.
Originating in West Africa, Shea butter is extracted from the nut of the karate tree. It quickly became popular and was imported with other spices and oils throughout the Middle East. Regular usage of Shea butter protected the skin against the climate, prevented wrinkles and soothed irritated and dry skin.
The bioactive ingredients in Shea butter include antioxidants, Vitamins A, E and F, and anti-inflammatory. Using Shea butter on your skin helps to restore elasticity and rejuvenates damaged cells.
Treatment With The Right Combinations
Today with the right combination of natural ingredients and new technologies, your skin can be cared for and treated so that it will look just like Cleopatra and ancient beauties. Synoia Technologies developed a protocol just for you. Using Red LED therapy together with the WISHpro rejuvenation capsule, you will see results after just one treatment (I know I have done it!). The Rejuvenation Serum Capsule with Shea Oil is high in vitamins A, E, and F providing deep nourishment for smooth skin.
