Imagine Being Hair-Free for Up to Six Weeks!

Say goodbye to waxing and hello to smooth, silky skin with the Emjoi Emagine Epliator. Now, let’s be real from the start. If you have not epilated before, it’s not for sissies. Or if you have epilated before but it was a very long time ago when the first epilators hit the market and you swore never again, rest assured, the technology has improved.

emjoiWhat does an epilator do? It has 72 tweezer heads that open and close as you glide the device over the desired area. So it removes hair from the root making for longer hairless days!   Does it hurt? Initially, yes. But if you are used to waxing, it’s not any more painful than that. I find it less painful but I do have finer hair. If you have coarser hair it will be a bit more intense. However, with regular use the pain diminishes every time to the point where it is truly minimal.

You also don’t have to let your hair grow out as long as needed for waxing. Shorter hair is removed with ease. Save your money on those pesky waxing appointments! Get clean-shaven at home. You may still have a bit of stubble initially but over time less and less. Overall, it’s great device!

Contouring 101

Published on by

Contouring enhances your face’s natural curves to create the illusion of more defined bone structure. By using makeup that’s both lighter and darker than your natural skin tone, you can change the way light bounces off your face, in turn enhancing and even slimming your facial features. Dermablend offers the dermatologist-developed and most-recommended products. They’re non-comedogenic, fragrance-free and allergy-tested; they are safe for acne-prone and sensitive skin.Strategically placing contour color two shades darker than your natural skin tone and a lighter highlighter (and blending thoroughly) works wonders for sculpting these areas…

Chiseled cheeks: Place darker contour color beneath the cheekbones (make a “fish face” to see the hollow spot) and highlighter on the tops of the cheekbones.

A slimmer nose: Use darker contour color on the sides of the nose, and highlighter down the center.

A defined jawline: Place contour color along the jawline and blend downwards toward the neck. Use highlighter in the center of the chin and blend outwards.

Try this with the Dermablend Quick-Fix Concealer.     DB076-dermablend-quick-fix-concealer-spf-30-light

Once you’ve created your contoured look, you want it to last. That’s where makeup-setting products come in, and there are two different formulations to meet every need.

The easiest way to keep your makeup in place (contouring included) is with a setting mist. With a just a few spritzes, makeup looks freshly applied all day, and it can also be used to refresh your complexion throughout the day without disturbing your makeup (or the need for application tools). Setting mists are ideal for those who wear powder foundation and they are super-easy and mess-free. Try the Dermablend Set + Refresh Spray.

Setting powder may look white to the eye, but it’s invisible when lightly dusted over makeup. This final step keeps makeup smudge- and transfer-resistant and dramatically increases its longevity. These powders are available in loose form and compact form (which is perfect for touch-ups on the go). Tip: Only use setting powder over contoured areas to keep highlighted areas glowing.

Dermablend Setting Powder is available in “Original” for all skin tones plus two additional shades.

The At Home Peel: Real Chemistry 3 Minute Peel

Published on by

ty002There was a day that you had to visit your local spa or dermatologist office to get a good skin peel. Those days are gone and at home peels are the way to go, if you want to bring your skincare regimen to a new level. If you’re already using great skincare products, you’re probably wondering if a peel is even necessary. Skincare products work better after a peel since the skin is freshly exfoliated and more receptive of the ingredients that are applied onto it.

One peel that we really love right now is the Real Chemistry Luminous 3-Minute Peel.  This peel is a gel that is thinly applied on your face and décolleté. After just 15 seconds, dead skin begins to solidify as you massage the peel onto your skin. Once all of the gel has been worked in, rinse your face, and pat dry.

Keep in mind if you are already using an exfoliating product, there is no need to use that and the peel on the same day. In fact, we recommend that you refrain from using any retinol, glycolic, or lactic ingredients the day before or after doing the at home peel. And as always, be sure to follow up with an SPF. We do not want sun exposure to reverse the results you’ve worked hard for. We recommend that you apply this peel at night. This will allow any redness to calm before exposure to daylight.

Vitamin D and Skin Health

Published on by

The “sunshine” vitamin, also known as Vitamin D, is extremely important for skin health.  Vitamin D is well-known for its role in calcium absorption.  We know that physically, Vitamin D 12057682265_d568e9030f_zdeficiency can cause rickets, osteomalacia, skeletal diseases, metabolic disorders, cancer, cardiovascular disease, autoimmune disease and many others.  It also affects skin conditions, including acne and psoriasis, both of which can be caused by an insufficient amount of vitamin D.

While hormonal balance and overall hygiene are causes of acne, a poor immune system due to low amounts of vitamin D in your system can also increase oil production in your skin cells. Acne forms when the sebaceous glands are clogged and these blocked, oil-producing cells lead to the unsightly blemishes that can afflict you at any time in your life. Sun exposure raises your vitamin D levels as your skin releases a chemical that produces vitamin D. This reduces the amount of bacteria in your system by boosting your immune system, reducing the level of acne.

For skin conditions like psoriasis, Vitamin D plays a crucial role.  The condition is associated with a poor immune system and, in certain instances, low vitamin D levels. The “Journal of Investigative Dermatology” showed that when exposed to ultraviolet-B rays, the element of sunlight that kick starts the vitamin D production system in the body, vitamin D levels increased significantly, and the symptoms of psoriasis disappeared. Similarly, a study in “Rheumatology International” also found that increasing vitamin D levels helped improve psoriasis symptoms.

Vitamin D is important in the rate of cell renewal and division.  A lack of vitamin D can lead to thinner skin that is fragile and sagging.  Vitamin D-3’s presence in your system is known to support the healing of wounds.  Some people use vitamin D for skin conditions including vitiligo, scleroderma, psoriasis, actinic keratosis, and lupus vulgaris.  Some studies have found that both children and adults with eczema are more likely to have low levels of vitamin D. Lower vitamin D levels are also linked to more severe skin symptoms. Research has found that people who have eczema and low levels of vitamin D are more likely to get infections on their skin.
