Oh, HONEY!

Published on by

2Honey is often used to acclimatize the body to surrounding pollens to prevent allergies. But did you know: propolis, the tacky resin that a bee gathers to produce honey, is not only anti-inflammatory, antifungal and antibacterial but also stimulates cell renewal! Honey is also a great moisturizer as well as effective for healing wounds.

Here are some of our favorite natural products that are sweet as honey!

Arcona Hydrating Serum incorporates honey as well as Hyalouronic Acid and Aloe to sooth and heals the most stressed, damaged or mature skin.

Caudalie Crushed Cabernet Scrub uses pure Gironde honey as well as 6 essential oils, brown sugar and crushed grape seeds to smooth away cellulite & dead skin cells for a luxurious, spa like exfoliation.

Juara Tamarind Tea Hydrating Toner incorporates Black Tea extract, Rice Bran Extract and Honey Extract to deeply moisturize the skin without clogging pores or causing irritation. This toner is paraben free, oil free, alcohol free & can be used on its own for oiler skin types or in conjunction with your favorite for an added boost of moisture!

You can find these, and thousands of other products at SkinStore.com!

Skincare for Kids

Published on by

When your youngster starts getting breakouts here are some safe and affordable options to clear up their skin. Begin by teaching your kids of the importance of a clean face. This means not touching their face constantly with filthy dirty hands and washing their First Aid Beauty Gentle Cleansing Wipesface morning and night with a gentle cleanser. First Aid Beauty offers Gentle Cleansing wipes that are super easy and convenient. You can throw a package of these in your kid’s sports bags or backpack, also great for mom’s gym bag too! Plus they are a good quality product at an affordable price at just $15.00 for 30 wipes. When your little one does get their first pimple, first record it in their baby book. You don’t want to miss a single memory! And next spot treat in the evenings with benzoyl peroxide. In most cases a 2.5%-5% benzoyl peroxide is all it will take to clear the blemish and is completely safe to use on children. The benzoyl peroxide will dry out the pimple in just a few days. Be sure to remind your kids not to pick at their face because it could cause scarring. And most importantly continue on insisting that they wear their sunscreen no matter how much they protest. Trust me one day they will thank you for your efforts to keeping their skin clear and healthy. For more kid friendly skincare products visit SkinStore.com!
