  • How to Keep Your Summer Skin’s Dewy Glow All Year ‘Round

    Goodbye to summer heat and full body sweating, frizzy hair, and running makeup.

    Hot but glowing! Thanks to all that Humidity! Hot but glowing thanks to all that humidity!

    We won’t miss you much…except for the lazy days and cloudless blue skies and the natural help your humidity gave our skin’s dewy glow.

    But, now it’s time to take action against the lack of humidity and colder temperatures of fall and winter.

    We need to boost our hydrating beauty regimen to avoid dull skin, premature (or otherwise) fine lines and wrinkles and a loss of bounce and glow. Here are some steps to take:

    1.) Cleanse morning and night – Find a routine you can stick to. This may include a single foaming or creamy cleanser from the Organic Pharmacy, a nighttime balm from the Queen of Clean, Eve Lom, or the iconic double cleanse of cleansing oil and face bar from Erno Laszlo.

    2.) Incorporate exfoliation in your routine. – Exfoliate with a salt or sugar body scrub to wash away flaky dull skin, soften skin and help moisturizers penetrate deeper.

    3.) Use a facial toner. A simple sweep of toner will prepare your face for deeper penetration of your serums and creams and whisk away any residual dirt, makeup or residue from your cleansers. Try the pH balancing Citrus Toner from LATHER or the Oasis Hydrating Tonic from ODE.

    A 10 Second Sweep with toner on a cotton pad can make all the difference in your level of hydration. A 10 Second Sweep with toner on a cotton pad can make all the difference in increasing your level of hydration.

    4.) Always moisturize - And then do it again. Apply moisturizing products immediate after bathing or showering and then again, at night. Check out ODE Natural Beauty

    Apply treatments and moisturizers immediately after washing the face while the skin is still warm.

    5.) Plan on masking at least once a week. A mask concentrates on your specific skin concern such as hydration, detoxing, brightening, or clarifying. You get instant results whether you use a cream, a clay or a sheet mask. ERNO LASAZLO Firming Hydrogel Mask

    6.) Turn down the temperature - Avoid hot baths or showers. Hot temperatures dry out the skin and break capillaries. Keep water "hand hot."

    7.) Always protect your skin. Even on the coldest, gloomiest days, UVA rays penetrate the cloud cover to cause sunburns, skin cancer, and speed up aging. And, don't forget to reapply.

    8.) Hydrate often and Change Your Diet - Drink plenty of water. Eat fruits and vegetables and look for foods high in essential fatty acids such as olive oil, salmon and avocados.Food to Improve Brain Cognitive Functions

    Follow these suggestions and you'll maintain well-hydrated, radiant skin all year long.

However Jack Black’s product line is meant for the man on the go, the one who doesn’t have time to spend an hour in the bathroom.  Their King of the Road Travel Kit has it all! It has everything your man needs to start his day off right!

    Shaving:

    To start you have a Facial Cleanser that not only cleans your face but also removes all the dirt and oil deep down in your pours. Then you have a Face Buff Energizing Scrub which opens up your pours and acts as a pre-shave.  After the scrub you have the Beard Lube which softens the skin and is a shaving cream that helps with reducing razor burn! Afterwards you have the Double Duty Face Moisturizer that will help reduce any inflammation and redness that you might have from shaving.  It also has sunscreen built into the formula so you’re well shaved face will be protected from the sun!

    Bath and Body:

    No man wants to use more than two products when they are showering, it’s just a lot of hassle. The Turbo Wash Cleanser Is Jack Blacks answer to that! It’s not just for hair, but also body!  The cleanser doesn’t just clean but it also helps with post-workout recovery.  The cleanser helps to reduce lactic acid build-up in your muscles so there is less soreness after your workouts which is essential.

    Moisturizer:

It will cool your skin down, and it’s lightweight so it won’t stick to you like other moisturizers.
