  • Put Your Best Face Forward for Fall: Skincare Tips for Healthy, Glowing Skin

    I know you’ve been feeling it. Dryer hands, face and lips.

    The weather is changing big time and your skin is a barometer that says,Dry Face - cracked

    “I’m thirsty!”

    What’s a woman or a man to do?! Here are a few tips to get your skin ready for the coming harsh climate of winter.

    TIP 1: Use Creamier Facial Cleansers.


    Put away the gels and use creamier cleansers that help retain moisture. Be gentle when cleansing. Use a light circular motion. Avoid harsh rubbing and never pull at your skin. Look for sulfate-free and soap free products. Soap-free formulations prevent moisture loss and will leave your skin feeling super soft.

    Juara Rice Facial Cleanser is a foaming, sulfate-free, rinse-off cleanser that removes make-up and skin-dulling debris with gentle cleansers.

    Men like their products to do more than one thing so they really like Jack Black Pure Clean Daily Facial Cleanser with Aloe and Sage Leafdownload (5)

    This natural, dual -purpose liquid cleanser and toner gently removes deep-down dirt and oil for clear, hydrated, shave-ready skin. Aloe and Sage Leaf are Certified Organic ingredients. 

    Speaking of toners...

    TIP 2: Don’t forget the Toner!


    Because it’s really important! Toner balances skin’s pH, hydrates skin by binding moisture to your skin, tightens facial pores and increases your moisturizer's absorption. Toners may be used with a cotton ball or sprayed in a mist directly on the face.

    All natural Elemental Herbology Flower Harmonizing Mist, for sensitive skin, is made from pure Rose Damask petals collected at dawn when the oil is at its peak. The luxurious facial tonic tones, hydrates, soothes and limits potential reactions to sun, wind, cold, flying and pollution.El Herb flower-harmonising-mist-ref

    Jurlique Balancing Mists are toners that come in a variety of natural ingredients to serve your skin type and concerns. The mists contain a wide variety of natural ingredients including marshmallow and glycerin to help prevent moisture loss and intensely hydrate and soften the skin.

    Jurlique Mist CitrusThe mists can travel with you and be applied anytime you feel the need for extra moisture.

    TIP 3: Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize!


    Use a richer, creamier moisturizer to seal in moisture, ease the signs of aging and repair sun damage, reduce redness and dark spots. Your skin needs richer, more emollient creams (especially at night) that keep the skin elastic and moisturized.

    Also, if you notice your skin is dull looking with dark spots, or uneven tone, look for a brightening cream. Brighteners, such as Erno Laszlo Luminous Intensive Cream for daily hydration, prevent discoloration and diminish the appearance of dark spots to even skin tone and illuminate your skin for a fresh, youthful look.download (6)EL Intensive crm

    TIP 4: Exfoliate Gently and Frequently.


    Summer environmental aggressors can leave skin dry, dull and flaky. In order to remove the dead skin cells, revive dull skin and repair any damage, you need to exfoliate frequently – probably twice a week with a gentle, natural exfoliator.

    AHAVA Facial Mud Exfoliator is a gentle, natural face scrub, formulated with Dead Sea download (6)Mud exfoliatormud to remove dead dulling skin cells while stimulating cellular renewal to reveal brighter, even toned skin.

    TIP 5: Mask that Face! Once A Week.


    Your skin will thank you.Use a leave-on mask once a week for a more complete and deeper hydrating treatment. You'll get a wide range of skin benefits by giving yourself a facial mask once a week. The mask deeply cleanses, moisturizes, and clarifies. And, can be a very relaxing experience.

    If blemishes are a concern, tryJuice Beauty Blemish Clearing Mask with a clarifying blend of exfoliating organic hydroxy-fruit acids, purifying clay and healing bamboo. This weekly mask treatment helps control oil and clears blemished skin for a fresh, radiant complexion.JBty mask

    TIP 6: Ditch the Wax:


    Avoid waxy lip balms that keep you licking your lips, which just leads to chapping.

    Try Malin+Goetz Lip Moisturizer, a fragrance, flavor and color free lip balm full of absorbent fatty acids.M +G lipUnlike traditional oils and drying waxes and silicones that are often licked off or wiped away, this lip balm nourishes upon impact while offering a continual layer of hydrating protection throughout the day and night.

    Hampton Sun Sport Lip Balm has a hydrating formula with an SPF of 30, includes natural and organic ingredients such as pomegranate, aloe vera, grapefruit, cucumber, green tea, and many other calming additives to protect and hydrate lips.

    TIP 7: Wear Sunscreen! Wear it every day the sun is out


    It’s not the temperature that causes skin damage, premature aging and skin cancer. It’s the UV rays. Avoid the danger, the tell-tale leathery looking skin, deep wrinkles, uneven skin tone and age spots. Apply sunscreen after finishing your makeup. Keep some in your car. Keep some by the front door so you can apply it before you leave the house. No excuses. Wear sunscreen.

    HAMPTON SUN’s Smart Serious Sunbathing images (5)offers a complete line of luxury sun protection products in light and silky formulations that combine the most effective moisturizers, anti-oxidants and UVA/UVB sun protection to help reduce premature signs of aging.



  • Skin Care Health and Breast Cancer Awareness

    oct-breast-cancer-awareness-month-ibmc-college-1As trees turn from their summer green to the more dazzling colors of fall, websites, retailers and even football teams follow suit by turning themselves brilliant pink to support Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October.

    Charging Against Breast CancerCharging Against Breast Cancer

    But, we need to be aware every month of the year.

    Awareness is our first important weapon against this dreadful disease. We need awareness to educate ourselves because early detection makes the difference in having a successful outcome. Knowing our family history, doing monthly self-exams from your 30’s on and getting annual mammograms after age 40 are important pro-active and life-saving steps. images (3) Breast Exam

    Lifestyle can also affect your risk for breast cancer. All the rules for good health apply: Get plenty of rest, stay hydrated, exercise, and wear sunscreen every sunny or partly sunny day of the year. Yes, any sunny day of the year. overcast-sunLimit alcohol, eat a well-balanced diet, don’t smoke and read the labels on your skin care products. Why? Because our skin absorbs over 60% of what we put on it. It stands to reason topical substances will have a direct impact on our skin health as well as on our looks.

    Skin Health during Breast Cancer Treatments

    Many of us know about the chemotherapy and radiation side effects of nausea and fatigue but don’t realize that our skin can really suffer when we undergo these difficult but life-saving therapies. Chemotherapy causes skin to become very dry and irritated and the target areas of radiation can become red and feel burned.

    download (2) Woman Itching Neck Patients rate skin irritation and dry skin as their most annoying side effects. These side effects are not just an annoyance. Dry and irritated skin can become inflamed, rash-y, uncomfortable and susceptible to infection. All skin reactions need to be discussed with your healthcare team as most skin reactions are expected and can indicate the therapy is working.

    What Can You Do to Ease the Discomfort?

    If you don’t have a skin care routine already, it’s a good idea to get one before you start your therapy. A good routine can ease the effects by preparing your skin before, during and after treatment. The number one rule is to be gentle with your skin. Know your ingredients and use the best possible skincare products you can afford. It’s perfectly fine to use over the counter beauty brands as long as they don’t irritate.

  • Keeping It Simple

    sensitiveskin-1024x682Did you know that over half of all Americans suffer from some sort of sensitive skin? Whether it be sensitivity to dyes, fragrances, colorants, or a skin condition such as rosacea, eczema, seborrheic dermatitis or just plain acne; people with sensitive skin often have a really hard time finding skin care regimens that really work.

    MalinGoetzEnter Malin+Goetz, a New York based, family owned, apothecary brand of skin care that is formulated for all skin types, especially sensitive skin! This brand offers straight-forward,uncomplicated skin care regimens for men and women. While Malin+Goetz is fantastic for all skin types, the needs of the sensitive skin client are put first and foremost. As a result, none of their products contain any synthetic fragrances, colorants or harsh detergents and contain no pore clogging oils and the entire line is Paraben free.

    The reason behind all this? Well, there are two. First, one of the founders, Matthew Malin, suffers from skin conditions including, eczema, rosacea, and fragrance allergies. The second reason is SIMPLICITY. Skin care in and of itself has become overly complicated and it can be difficult to know what to buy. In the Malin+Goetz line, each of the categories of face, body and hair, have a single best 2 step regimen including a single best cleanser and a single best moisturizer, with a clear focus on balance!

    T
    he key to their great cleansers is a gentle, amino acid based cleansing agent that purifies, hydrates and maintains a natural ph balance on the skin.

    To compliment that technology, their advanced moisturizers are rooted in blending nourishing fatty acids instead of greasy pore clogging oils and waxes. This leaves the skin perfectly hydrated.

     

     

     

    Likewise, the Peppermint Shampoo and Cilantro Hair Conditioner also maintains a perfect balance on the scalp and in the hair shaft itself.

    How easy is that? A few things to remember when shopping for products for sensitive skin:

    • Simplicity is key. The less preservatives and chemicals in a product the better.
    • Be gentle! Exfoliation is a must for any skin type, but let the product do the exfoliating! Don't tug or pull at delicate skin.
    • Stay away from extremes. No extreme sun exposure, no washing with extremely hot water, no scrubbing with brushes or wash cloths.
    • Avoid ingredients such as alcohol, sulfates, parabens, perfumes and dyes.
    • Hydrate!!! Drink plenty of water and carry a spritzer in your purse that you can spray every so often on your face. It's refreshing, sets your makeup, and puts the best moisturizer right into the skin, water!
