  • Skincare AKP way: Be Healthy, Helpful and Happy!

    AKP Skincare. Real People. Real Result. Celebrate Natural Beauty

    Advice from a smart lady, which inspire the CEO/Founder of AKP Skincare

    I always curiously ask people with good skin, “what is your secret?” This wise lady gave me this advice. “Strive to be healthy, helpful, and happy. Living well leads to looking one’s best.” That advice inspired me to write this blogs about WHY AKP SKINCARE?

    STRIVE TO BE HEALTHY

    It is not true that Asian women have good skin, my light skin mom started to have brown spots all over her face since she turned 40, my sisters, too.  My skin also started with brown spots even though I spend money on $200 for a small of anti-aging skincare cream.  Do I have my mom gene? I accepted these brown spots because my health was more important to me than my beauty.  I wanted to be healthy more than beauty.

    I had health problems since the 30s, after 40 my health corrupted because my gut couldn’t absorb nutrition from food, I did tremendous research on National Institude of health, reads many books on Functional Nutrition, Holistic Health, Ancient Herbal Medicine, Orthomolecular Medicine, Integrative Medicine, Natural Health… The will to be Healthy naturally in me is so strong that I forget about my ego, open to learning about ancient remedies which I thought were “quack”, and use my detective skill of a scientist to understand these medicines. This was really a journey to understand myself Mind.Body.Spirit.

    I have found the way to apply nutrients from the skin, I created my own skincare. On the journey to healing myself with holistic nutrition, my skin naturally better at 52, age spots and wrinkles disappear, my skin firmer. I realize that Skin Health is the indicator of the health inside.

    People have started asking me: “What’s skincare brand do you use?” I  gave AKP skincare away, but my clients want to buy the products, therefore I set up my AKP Skincare, LLC, to officially doing business on functional skincare.

    BE HELPFUL AND HAPPY

    The journey of starting a new skincare business at the age of 50s is so interesting, I feel HAPPY living my dream by doing this business:  enjoy many hobbies since I was a kid: Asking, Reading, Learning, Experimenting, Organizing, Creating things, Connecting with people, Freedom thinking and speaking my point of view.

    At this age, I am so comfortable with whom I am and have the courage of doing business the way I want as a woman.

    Who said doing business you must have this characters: “Throat cutting, competitive, step over other people to get ahead, extravagating the true. Use tricks to manipulate people to get what’s you want, chasing money, fame?”

    What do I want? I want to BE HELPFUL I want to empower my clients to believe in the power inside them. I do what I can to make them look at the solution inside their body and spirit. I only provide my clients the right nutrition for their skin rejuvenating.

    I also so have learned so much from my client, one of my clients said that the reason she wants to be healthy because she loves her grown-up son and daughter so much, that she doesn’t want them to have to worry for her health. Her mother succumbed to diabetic disease for many years before passed away. Therefore she said, ” Take care of myself, my health is the best gifts I can give to my kids”. Wow! I copy that to be AKP Skincare motto ” Love and take care of yourself is the best gift you can give to your loved one.” For more detail about her transformation click here Thuy Nguyen

    Am I a healer? absolutely not. My clients are the healers; I am only their helper in their journey.

    LIVING WELL LEADS TO LOOKING ONE’S BEST!

    I am so grateful that the sickness and struggle to recover had helped me have a deep sympathy for my clients, to able to speak their language than being an authority. I am not a Doctor and I don’t give prescription drugs. I was trained as chemical scientists, I use science to understand ancient herbal medicine applying to modern lifestyles. Learn new things each day from every clients’ feedback. I integrate modern science with ancient wisdom. On this journey, I have met and learned from many new friends, mentors, who also have the same or different views with me on natural health.  I am so happy that I can help the teen or young adults, who insecure with their look can get their skin to heal naturally by nutrition, and avoiding using harsh treatment. Importance for me is the experience of healing by holistic nutrition can be with them for the rest of their life. Many clients told me that they started to receive compliments from their friends (see Testimonials).  They make me so happy.  I accept gratuitously, and reply sincerely:

    YOU LOOK YOUR BEST BY LOVING YOURSELF. BECAUSE I LOVE MYSELF I FOUND AKP SKINCARE.

    AKP – REJUVEX GOLD Skincare for women after 40s

     

  • My Skin feels bruised after a sunburn. How severe is it?

    Bruised after sunburn is not a good sign, I am not a doctor, but I would like to share my story in case you may find useful for your decision about your health.

     My true life story about Sunburn:

    Anh Kim Phan, age 52, Healthy Skin – Use internal cellular defense instead of sunblock

    As a young kid, in the summer, I swim in the ocean every day from morning to noon, without using any sunblock, our skin got darken for about one month and naturally peeled and I have light skin again. I didn’t have sunburn problem. I was the strongest kid, tallest among my sisters,  I rarely got sick.

    I grew up, educated, got a good job, I start to care for my light skin. Every time I go out, even though I applied sunblock, I still have sunburn problem rashes, my eyes bulge, severe headache, my skin itch, bruised, so painful that I have to take Tylenol to ease the pain.

    WHY a strong kid never got sick became a 30s fragile weak women?

    Use my scientist skill to research for the cure of sunburn. Now I am today very healthy happy and success that I want to share my experience with everyone, in the hope you may use as a reference for you to make your own decision for your health.

    Paradoxically, I found out that

    1.  Sun’s radiation helps our skin synthesis vitamin D but also cause skin sunburn if you have a weak immune system.
    2. Deficiency of vitamin D and many other nutrients is the cause of sunburn. Vitamin D is a very important vitamin not only for the bone health but for almost every organ function in our body.
    3. Avoid the sun and use of sunblock, prescription drugs hindrance our body synthesize vitamin D naturally and become a vicious cycle of sunburn.
    4. The food we eat and our digestive health also affect skin health and its ability to heal from Sunburn.

    AKP SKINCARE’s protocols for avoiding sunburn:

    Eat plenty, various colorful vegetables, fruits daily. There are thousands of phytochemicals like flavonoids ( beta-carotene family is one of these phytochemicals), minerals, vitamins, which help neutralize the free radical cause sunburn.

    Enjoy real fat, real butter, our body needs cholesterol to synthesize vitamin D. Fat under skin also protect your skin from sunburn. If you have a stomach problem, cannot digest fat, you should address the problem seriously.

    – Before, during, or after a long time sun exposure drink real fruit juice with multi-color, with multi-vitamin C, D, B complex, Co-Q10, ALA which boost ability to heal from sunburn faster.

    – Use Herbal ( Calendula, Chamomile) infused coconut or Oliver oil) enriched with vitamin E and  D topical to moisturize and heal sunburn.

    – Do not use harsh soap to clean skin immediately after sun exposure, because you may accidentally wash out all the new synthesized vitamin D on your skin.

    – Use Alo Vera gel, herbal tea (Calendula is my favorite) to ease the burn, or AKP REVITA and REJUVEX to neutralize free radicals caused by sun’s radiation

    – Be careful to use sunblock, sunblock contains many man-made chemicals that may affect overall health,  use internal cellular health as natural “sunblock”.

    These above suggestions are for a person just has the problem with sunburn recently. If you have a severe reaction like me as I mentioned above or have been through many treatments by anti-biotic, cortisols, long time taking an antacid, proton inhibitor, medication for any chronic disease, you need to consult with a holistic doctor, or nutritionist to help you to treat the root cause properly.
