NuBrillance Microdermabrasion System

Published on by

The microdermabrasion system by NuBrillance is brand new to SkinStore.com, but has been used in doctors’ offices and clinics for many years because of its effectiveness.

The NuBrilliance microdermabrasion system uses gentle crystal free technology to exfoliate and resurface the skin. The diamond tip wand will get rid of dead skin cells while the vacuum suction will help to stimulate collagen production and help to lessen the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. For people with sensitive skin that cannot use a microdermabrasion system, NuBrillance is a great alternative because it has adjustable settings and does not scratch or irritate the skin.

You can save time and money in the long run by not going to a doctor’s office because you can use the NuBrillance Microdermabrasion System right at home. You can also use this product on other areas that may look dry and dull, like on the hands, arms, legs, and even décolletage. NuBrillance is the first and only at-home micodermabrasion device that uses suction combined with real laser-cut diamonds to promote cell growth and a smoother, more youthful appearance. The NuBrillance Microdermabrasion System will help to address hyper pigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles, uneven skin texture, and enlarged pores.

All skin types should start out using the system on the lowest setting, then very gradually work their way up to a higher level, making sure to use very light pressure. If you have concerns about using a microdermabrasion system please consult your dermatologist first before beginning any regimen. You should also make sure you are using a daily sunscreen of at least an SPF30 or higher to protect your skin.

New Items at SkinStore.com!

Published on by

The seasons are changing, and we’re happy to embrace the cooler weather and all of the wonderful things that come with it. Some of our favorite autumn classics include pumpkin spice lattes from Starbucks, cozy wool coats, and chilly football games. But our most favorite things about the new season are the new beauty products and trends, of course! Switching seasons also means switching skin care routines and incorporating products that will get us through the cold months ahead. Fall is also a great time to preview holiday gift ideas! Here are some of our newest SkinStore.com launches that are quickly becoming staff and customer favorites.

Clarisonic PLUS Skin Care System with Deep Pore Cleansing in Blue. While you may go into lazy hibernation mode this fall, you shouldn’t let your skin do the same. Your face and body are in need of deep cleansing and exfoliation, and Clarisonic makes it fun and easy. The PLUS system works wonders for the face and the body with its four speed settings, and the new Deep Pore Cleansing Brush Head gets those stubborn trouble areas clean and clear with the push of a button.

ARCONA White Ice will hydrate your skin through the icy cool weather to come, and because it’s now available in a jumbo size you won’t have to worry about running out too soon. This lightweight gel will moisturize deep within the dermis, won’t clog pores, but will protect your skin against environmental assault.

Even though it’ll be chilly out it doesn’t mean you have to hide your neck, your neck will get all of the tender loving care it deserves with StriVectin TL Neck Firming Cream so you’ll want to show off your new swan-like self. The TL Neck Firming Cream uses breakthrough niacin powered technology to visibly restore firmness, shape, and contour while providing an immediate tightening effect.

If you’re looking for a total regimen overhaul then look no further, because our newest addition is sure to be one of our best as Bioelements joins the SkinStore.com family. Since the early 90’s Bioelements products have been dominating the spa world with their innovative formulas that provide clinical-results. Founded by one of the first ever licensed estheticians the Bioelements brand brings innovative skincare technology and the spa experience straight to your home.

Cool weather doesn’t mean skipping sunscreen OR deodorant, so make sure to stock up on both, because getting a sunburn in the middle of fall is completely possible, and unfortunately smelling bad is too. We’re loving the new LaVanilla deodorants because they’re free of all the bad stuff like petrochemicals, phthalates, proplyne glycols, and synthetic dyes. They are chockfull of powerful antioxidants, essential oils, and soothing hydrators.

One of our worst things about cool weather is chapped, red, dry skin. We’re thankful for ATOAPLM! The original ATOPALM Intensive Moisturizing Cream has a cult following, and the new ATOPALM 130+ Concentrated Intensive Cream will surely be a hit. Enriched with olive oil, grape seed oil, and vitamin E, this parabens-free multi lamellar emulsion formula mimics the structure of the skin lipids, healing to restore the skin’s barrier function. It’s also great for rosacea, and for razor burn.

Dr.Perricone, a pioneer in the skincare industry is always coming up with the latest and greatest. Perricone MD Cold Plasma products were a hot hit during the summer time, and they’ll surely sell like hotcakes in the fall. In time for fall Perricone MD Cold Plasma had a growth spurt and is now available in a 2 oz super-size! The best thing is that it’s a $300 value for only $229!

Revaleskin is also taking their line to new heights with three new products. To rid of hyperpigmentation induced by too much fun in the sun, the Illuminesse Brightening Complex will help to lighten dark spots while brightening the skin with a potent coffeeberry complex. Revaleskin Skin Firming Serum helps increase resistance to stress and environmental aggressors. And the new RevaleSkin Elette 4% Creamy Wash rinses away dirt and residue while killing p.acne bacteria and zapping zits in a jiffy.

Evaluate Your Tools

Published on by

To get a flawless application of cosmetics it is very important to have the clean and proper tools necessary. If any of your makeup brushes look frayed, worn down or broken it’s time to replace them. It is easier to replace brushes in multiples since they come at a better value than when purchased individually. If your tools are damaged in any way, it will affect the application techniques and the final look. Get the brush essentials needed by picking up a simple brush set like Bare Minerals Jet Set Mini Brush Collection or the Stila Brush Set.

Flat Irons & Their Differences

Published on by

With so many different choices of flat irons out there it can be hard to know which one to choose. Next time you go on the search for a sleek new iron pay attention to these key words:

Titanium: Offers extremely smooth surfaces to prevent any pulling or snagging. The durable metal helps to provide proper heat distribution for fast styling from root to tip without the creases.

Ceramic: These plates are fused with a crystal coating that produces a negative charge, which creates an easy glide. Ceramic plates help to seal the cuticle for a sleek, smooth look.

Tourmaline: This material is great for reducing frizz. Similar to ceramic, the negatively charges ions help to seal the hair cuticle, helping to lock in natural moisture.

*Nano: It’s not a material, but rather tiny nano elements processed on the metal plates. Nano particles help to provide a bonus of antibacterial protection!

Hope this has helped to ‘straighten’ things out!

Luminess Air

Published on by

Thanks to Luminess Air we can all have a VIP ticket to flawless, red-carpet ready, celebrity skin from the comfort of our own home. This top of the line air brushing system is easy to use and the results are great. The coverage is customizable and it perfectly blends in one quick and painless application. You can go from foundation to blush to bronzer and then to a full body tan all with one system.

Luminess Air foundation does not cake like traditional makeup while it minimizes the appearance of uneven skin tone, fine lines, wrinkles and pores. Also a great benefit is that it eliminates the risk of cross-contamination that traditional make-up brushes and sponges can’t guarantee (great for acne-prone skin!).

Welcome to a new approach of make-up application that hydrates, accentuates and illuminates better than we thought possible.
