Take the Mist-ery Out of Toners

Published on by

When skin care regimens first became popular, there was much to learn about proper skincare. Most beauty products varied from superficial to far too potent. With that poor philosophy came a misconception about toners; most were assumed to be fit only for oily skin types. Not to be mistaken for astringents, toners are excellent for obtaining a balanced pH, adequate hydration and a clear complex. Toners are not meant to strip the skin of its natural oils nor is it meant to sit on the surface of the skin. Although toners can be interrupted in many ways, toners in western skincare should be a light combination of essential oils that help penetrate the skin to lock in the healing benefits.

Here are a few of the SkinStore staffs favorite mists:

Kerstin Florian Rehydrating Neroli Water ($35 USD) A unique blend of all natural floral water from the Bitter Orange Kerstin Florian Rehydrating Neroli WaterBlossom calms, moisturizes and freshens the skin. Excellent for the face and can even be used as a fragrance spray for body.

Jurlique Rosewater Balancing Mist ($34 USD) This paraben-free, natural spray softens the skin while providing the powerful antioxidant power of rose petals.  This product can be used by all skin types.

Jane Iredale Antioxidant Hydration Spray ($27 USD) The great smelling Green Tea extract mist not only balances skin, controls oil production and nourishes the skin but can even be used in the hair to control static or set any foundation.

Neova Balancing Toner ($32 USD) New to the market, this lightweight toner absorbs excess oils and gentle exfoliates the skin without irritation. We recommend this for oilier or combination skin types who are looking to reduce pore size and improve skin texture.

Benefits of Green Tea

Published on by

Lately, the beauty industry has been abuzz about the latest miracle ingredient which isn’t all that revolutionary. In fact, the latest trend has been around for centuries. Camellia Oleifera,  or commonly known as Green Tea, extract has been harvested and used for a wide variety of remedies for conditions like heart disease to weight loss and even gum disease. Unlike most popular cosmetic crazes, Green Tea extract offers real results.

Green tea is packed with free radical fighting anti-oxidants that help reduce inflammation, perfect for skin conditions like cupreous veins, fine lines and wrinkles or even Rosacea. Green Tea also works well with zinc oxide sunscreens to help fight off aging UV-A rays. 

Here are some of our best Green tea extract packed products!

Topix Replenix All Trans Retinol Smooth Serum 5X; this serum offers smooth, refined and evenly toned skin. Retinol helps achieve more radiant looking skin while delivering the skin enhancing benefits of Green Tea Polyphenols.

SkinMedica Tri-Retinol Complex; Improves the appearance of fine lines, aging, and sun-damaged skin while enhancing the skin’s texture with microsphere technology that improves cell turnover rates and provides antioxidant defense.

Juara Tamarind Tea Hydrating Toner; this moisturizing toner provides intense hydration botanicals like tamarind, green tea and rice without a greasy, oily feeling.

Pseudofolliculitis

Published on by

SkinCeuticals BioMedic Micro-Exfoliating ScrubPseudofolliculitis commonly known as razor bumps is an infection of the facial skin commonly found in coarser hair types. This infection is very common amongst men; this occurs during the removal of facial hair and is commonly caused by shaving in the opposite direction of the hair growth. The results are many pustules, papules, and ingrown hairs to develop in the area. The results of this infection can be very painful and embarrassing. The best way to clear this condition is to shave going in the same direction of the hair growth, exfoliate the area and also to use products that are targeted to clear up acneic symptoms. Below I have listed products that will work great to help alleviate the infection:

SkinCeuticals BioMedic Micro-Exfoliating Scrub:

Designed for congested and rough skin, this mild exfoliating gel combines natural microbeads with gentle cleansing and hydrating agents to thoroughly cleanse pores and promote healthy cell renewal without damaging or drying skin. Diatomaceous earth microbeads are formulated at maximum density to provide intense and even exfoliation without causing lacerations. Additionally, the highest purity of aloe softens polished skin. Designed for all skin types, this scrub is safe for face and body.

Murad Man Razor Burn Rescue:

A treatment product that soothes shaving-related inflammation and helps prevent folliculitis. Also fantastic for treating and preventing ingrown hairs. Glycolic Acid clears irritating dead skin and debris from clogged hair follicles and Tea Tree Oil removes bacteria to combat blemishes and promote healthy-looking skin.
