Published on by

Zents Fragrance KitIf you are extremely sensitive to scents and suffer from migraines at one whiff of a potent fragrance, you can rest assured that Zents will not cause pain or overwhelm your senses.

Born out of a true story of healing, the founder of Zents was in a tragic car accident leaving him without the sense of smell. After doctors told him they couldn’t do anything more for him he went on a holistic journey to wellness and regained his ability to smell. Highly concentrated, synthetic fragrances that once were a mere annoyance, now triggered migraines. Thus, Zents was born. Combining the words Zen and Scents, the founder created a line of fragrances with no synthetics, parabens, phthalates, propylene glycol, petroleum and dyes. In the Zents Eau de Toilette Sample Set, you can layer or mix and match with no fear.   There is something for everyone in this kit. From earthy to fresh and fruity to floral you will be sure to find a few that you love within the ten clean scents. Once you find your favorite, you will be happy to know that these aromas also come in lotions, concretas (solid fragrance) and oil concentrates in rollerball bottles. Ooh la la!

Infuse Skin with Nourishment

Published on by

Elemental Herbology incorporaElemental Herbology Cell Food Facial Serumtes the integral philosophy of the Chinese Medicine’s Five Elemental Theory. The wood element is aligned to spring, germination, growth and change.

Consider adding into any skincare regimen the Elemental Herbology Cell Food facial serum. This serum contains a power-house of proteins, vitamins and anti-oxidants to help boost, protect and repair undernourished skin, especially after the effects of the winter season.

“You can actually feel this serum doing your skin good; natural products don’t get more effective. It leaves skin supple and nourished in the short term and decidedly more radiant in the long term.” - Harper’s Bazaar, October 2014

Niacinamide: Key Ingredient

Published on by

Niacin, also known as Vitamin B-3 is found in many foods, including yeast, meat, fish, poultry, milk and eggs. The benefits for the SkinCeuticals Resveratrol B Einternal consumption of niacin are astronomical. It is scientifically proven to help treat heart disease, diabetes, cholesterol, and more. Topical application of products that contain niacin and niacinamide (which is a derivative of niacin) has also proven to have incredible effects. Niacin is found in all cells and it plays an important role in energy production. Thus, it is present in the organs that are metabolically active like the brain, heart, and liver.

In regards to skin care, Niacinamide has the ability to treat skin conditions including aging skin. It is anti-inflammatory which makes it effective in the treatment of acne. It is also beneficial against skin conditions such as psoriasis and rosacea. Studies have shown that 4% niacinamide gel can improve the symptoms of acne. In regards to rosacea, one study showed rosacea patients treated with niacinamide resulted in a diminished reaction to irritants. 26 out of 34 patients studied had a dramatic improvement in their skin.

Niacinamide is amazing for young skin, but it’s a miracle worker for more mature skin. There is evidence that it stimulates cells to produce more collagen. It’s also great for excessive dryness because it prevents moisture loss. It protects the skin by providing a safe occlusive barrier between skin and the environment. This ingredient does not feel heavy or greasy. Most importantly, niacinamide increases the production of ceramides which are lipids in the outer layer of the epidermis. Ceramides form a protective barrier against water loss. It will soften the look of fine lines and wrinkles. It stimulates circulation in the dermis which increases blood flow and increase vital nutrients to the skin, radiance, and overall skin health.

But what about those ugly age spots and hyperpigmentation that many suffer from due to sun exposure and other factors? Niacinamide in concentrations of 4% helps lighten areas of pigmentation. It reduces blotchiness, improves skin texture, and evens out skin tone.

Is it safe? According to a study published in The International Journal of Toxicology, niacinamide is not toxic or carcinogenic. This was tested on levels higher than those found in any cosmetic product. More importantly, it does not sensitize the skin or cause irritation in most people. It is classified as a low hazard cosmetic ingredient by The Environmental Working Group.

In a clinical study, after just four weeks of Niacinamide use, users saw water loss reduction by 24%, Pigmentation decrease by 68%, and increase of fatty acids by 67%, increase of ceramide production by 34%, fibroblasts production by 20%, collagen production by 54%.

Clearly, the studies show it produces great results; Niacinamide is an ingredient for those who want to go above and beyond in their skin care.

 

Some of our favorite products on SkinStore containing Niacinamide are SkinCeuticals Resveratrol B E and SkinMedica LYTERA Skin Brightening Complex.

Battle of the Dark Eye Circles

Published on by

Under eye circles are a very common skin care concern. Our customers (and myself included) are on a constant hunt foNI007-in-style-eye-repair-cr the miracle product that will address this concern. In order to find the right product, you first need to figure out what is the cause of your dark circles. Take a look at the color under your eyes, if the skin appears more blue then your dark circles may be caused by leaking blood vessels and if your skin appears more brown then it may be caused by hyperpigmentation.

Blue circles are usually hereditary or show up as we age. As we age the padding around the eye gets thinner and we lose the baby fat. The skin around the eyes is about .5 mm while the rest of our skin is about 2 mm. Since the skin is so thin around the eyes it can show blood pooling or leaking. Eye products that contain vitamin K may help address this issue. Vitamin K helps with blood clotting, improving blood circulation and reduces inflammation. The problem with vitamin K is that it is hard to stabilize and therefore you cannot just rub some vitamin K under your eyes and expect to see results. It is important to find a reputable brand that has formulated a product with a stabile form of vitamin K to target dark circles. Peptides are another great way to combat blue under eye discoloration. Peptides will tighten the tissues around the eyes and prevent blood leakage from the vessels. Topix Replenix All Trans Retinol Eye Repair Cream is a spectacular product to “reduce” the look of dark circles.

Brown circles are more common among darker skin tones. Periorbital Hyperpigmentation is when more melanin is produced around the eye than usual. The best way to prevent this discoloration is to apply a sunscreen daily to protect the eyes from sun damage. NIA24 Eye Repair Complex is a great product to address darkness around the eyes. It contains Pro-Niacin to improve the hyperpigmentation and vitamin C to brighten the eye area. Understand that there is not a product that can get rid of the circles completely, but there are products that can definitely help.
