What the LED “Red Light” Does for Your Skin

LED is a noninvasive approach to working with light. During the past ten years, independent worldwide research from organizations such as NASA has shown that light applied in the correct wavelength stimulates intercellular communication, resulting in skin rejuvenation. Benefits include:

  • Rejuvenates and stimulates ATP at the cellular level, which in turn helps produce more collagen and elastin.
  • Helps push product down into your skin for better delivery.
  • Reduces inflammation and redness; helps strengthen weakened capillaries.
  • Calms and soothes skin irritations and helps heal wounds.
  • Encourages a natural chemical reaction within the skin, uniting hydrogen and oxygen to create moisture.
  • Relaxes mind, body, and soul!

Five Easy and Natural Ways to Reduce Eye Puffiness

  1. Sleep on your back. When you sleep on your stomach you restrict blood flow to the skin.

  2. Keep two large spoons in your freezer at all times. Place the cold spoons over your eyes for a few minutes to reduce swelling.

  3. Eliminate soda from your diet. Soda contains phosphates (dangerous additives) and sodium. Too much salt in your diet leads to puffy eyes and face.

  4. Grate cucumber and wrap it in cheese cloth. Place the entire cloth across your eyes for maximum impact.

  5. Chamomile has a lot of great qualities, including anti-inflammatory qualities. Soak two teabags for 30 seconds or so in water and then place the bags over your eyes for several minutes. Or, if you want to use fewer teabags, make a cup of tea and soak a washcloth in the tea.
