Summer is almost here and spaghetti straps and halter tops are soon to follow.  So let’s go ahead and look “back” for clear skin. Body washes with salicylic acid help to clear pores and minimize their appearance. Murad Acne Body Wash banishes body breakouts with this powerful, patented body wash.

A few good tools can also help to get you “back” inline. The Clarisonic PLUS Skin Care System with Spot Treatment has an amazing body brush attachment that works wonders and sends ultrasonic pulses down your spine.

Hot Ingredient: Peptides

Published on by

With so many ingredients and buzz words in skin care it can be hard to keep up. But don’t fret because we are going to keep you in the know by defining peptides.

Peptides are naturally occurring chemical messengers, each one instructs the skin to behave in a certain manner. Some peptides can reduce the signs of aging by increasing collagen production, which will firm the skin from the inside.  Other peptides send the message for the skin to “relax” and the result is wrinkle reduction.

Here are some peptide-powered products:

DermaQuest Skin Therapy Peptide Mobilizer uses Argirilene (Hexapeptide-3) a wrinkle inhibitor that will reduce pre-existing wrinkle depth and relax facial tension.

Euoko Y-30 Intense Lift Concentrate has Leuphasyl peptide that helps regulate muscle contraction. This is especially beneficial for reducing the depth of wrinkles around the eyes and forehead areas.

Kinerase Pro Therapy C8 Peptide Intensive Treatment & Kinerase C8 Peptide Intensive Treatment incorporates the peptide Octapeptide to extend and lengthen the muscle, reducing wrinkle depth.

Kate Somerville HydraKate Line Release Face Serum has the peptide Matrixyl 3000 (Pentapeptide-3) to aid in the synthesis of new collagen. It is stronger than Vitamin C and works faster than Retinol without the irritating side-effects.

Peter Thomas Roth UnWrinkle has the peptide Tripeptide, synthetic snake venom that temporarily debilitates the muscle, keeping it from contracting and thereby smoothing lines in the wrinkle prone area.


How to Get Stronger Nails

Published on by

If you are anything like me, you love your nails to look good but those trips to the nail salon get quite expensive!  After hearing such great reviews about the Trind Natural Nail Repair, I had to try it for myself. Within a couple of weeks I was in love! Talk about clear, strong nails. This formula tightens the protein-molecules while leaving space for the natural moisturizers, which makes the nails stronger and healthier. Anyone with brittle or dull nails can definitely appreciate a product like this. Very easy to use, for the first 2 weeks apply one coat daily directly to the nails. The following day, remove the former coat with nail polish remover. For maintenance you only need to use it once a week. Once you see how great your nails look with just this one item, try incorporating in some of the other Trind products for magazine worthy nails!

Here at SkinStore we get a lot of inquires about which cleansers are safe to use with the Clarisonic systems.

The Purlisse Pur Delicate Gentle Soy Milk Cleanser is a mild soap-free, non-foaming cleanser that respects that delicate nature of your skin. Its non-irritating ingredients make it perfect for sensitive skin types.  For those combination to oily skin types, the Avene Gentle Gel Cleanser is a rinse off cleanser that is formulated to gently cleanse the skin and remove make-up.

Exfoliate with ExfoliKate!

Published on by

Exfoliate your way to a brighter more even complexion with results you can see and feel! Everyone always loves that baby face, fresh and clean feel after they leave their facial appointment. Well now you can have that feeling at home. Formulated with microbeads, fruit enzymes and salicylic acid, the Kate Somerville ExfoliKate Intensive Exfoliating Treatment will leave you with healthier looking skin after just one treatment! It became a personal favorite of mine after the first use. It’s best used once or twice each week, morning or evening, to keep skin radiant. Apply a thin, even layer to a clean, wet face, massaging in a circular motion for 30 seconds. Leave on for up to two minutes. Rinse off with warm water and gently pat dry and experience the results! This product does increase circulation which can cause the skin to flush for a short time. If you have sensitive skin it is best to leave it on for less than a minute or use the ExfoliKate Gentle Exfoliating Treatment. And for those with a problematic skin type, we highly recommend the ExfoliKate Acne Clearing Exfoliating Treatment to give you that glow, while targeting blemishes and helping to prevent new breakouts.

  • Tip from Kate Somerville: Use ExfoliKate in the shower as the steam will help to activate the enzymes, making it even more effective.
