Strawberry Scrub Obsession!

Published on by

PT268-peter-thomas-roth-strawberry-scrubMy newest skin care obsession: this scrub! Not only does this stuff smell amazing, it leaves the skin soft, supple, and refreshed. Gentle enough for daily use and effective on the body as well, this is a delight to use in the morning or at night. I use it nightly after I remove my makeup and cleanse, and I have to say it does what it says it will. I haven’t experienced any breakouts or irritation, and my complexion is overall more even in tone and texture.
Strawberries contain alpha hydroxy acids, salicylic and ellagic acid, as well as Vitamin C. Alpha hydroxy acids eliminate dead skin cells and help reverse signs of aging, while salicylic and ellagic acids tighten pores, reduce blemishes and help lighten hyperpigmentation over time. Vitamin C helps boost collagen production and give the skin an overall brighter appearance. Many different skin types can benefit from the cocktail of acids and finely ground almonds Peter Thomas Roth used in this scrub.
You should be exfoliating at least twice a week to keep your skin healthy and maintain a youthful “glow.” Not only will you be getting rid of dull skin cells, but your other skin care products will penetrate better on freshly exfoliated skin. The benefits of exfoliation are numerous and this scrub contains both physical and chemical exfoliation properties. To get your skin glowing for spring, give this stuff a try.

WEI TAO WEI Cool2Hot Sonic Beautifier

Published on by

tao weiWe’ve all heard that something cold like ice cubes, a kitchen spoon, or a cucumber will reduce puffiness around the eyes while the warmth from steam opens up the pores to release toxins from the skin and to best absorb ingredients in products that are applied to the skin. Many women in Asia attribute their beautiful skin to these methods. Wei has figured out a way to utilize those methods in an easy-to-use hand-held device. The WEI TAO WEI Cool2Hot Sonic Beautifier has a metal massage plate that gets both cold and hot to increase the efficacy and absorption of your favorite skin care products.

The warming plate is used to aid in the application of serums, masks, creams, and lotions. You simply apply your skin care product and place the warm plate against your skin. It takes approximately 30 seconds for the plate to warm. Gentle vibrations provide a soothing yet stimulating facial massage. This vibration ensures that your product is evenly applied into every nook and cranny.

Once the product is completely absorbed into the skin, you click the button once more to begin cooling the metal plate. Once the metal plate cools, you then apply it to the face once more to help close the pores and hold your wonderful product in. The cooling plate also serves as an amazing tool to de-puff your skin and eye area. The Tao Wei Cool2Hot Sonic Beautifier is so convenient and light weight. It’s time to ditch the old cold spoon to the eyes trick and opt for the new and advanced Tao Wei Cool2Hot Sonic Beautifier!

Published on by

Dr. Hauschka’s Rose Day Cream is the perfect moisturizer for sensitive, dry or normal skin types. Combination skin types could also use Rose Day Cream as a night cream as it does not contain any SPF. Each bottle contains 30 rose flowers which are deeply nourishing and soothing for dry or irritated skin. Rose Day Cream also contains Shea butter, avocado oil, and peanut oil which deeply nourish dry skin, reduce wrinkles, and have healing and antiseptic properties.

Jennifer Lopez, a.k.a J.Lo, was asked on an episode of a popular Bravo late night TV show about the high priced Crème’ de la Mer she used, to which she replied she actually uses Dr. Hauschka’s Rose Day Crème. Turns out Jennifer Lopez isn’t the only celebrity who loves this stuff; Jessica Alba is also said to be in love with it. I picked up a tube and I have to say I’m in love as well. I use it as a night cream and wake up with smooth, supple, glowing skin that isn’t overly hydrated or tight. In fact, it’s perfection.

DK011-dr-hauschka-rose-day-creamRose Day Cream also comes in a light version for combination skin types, or to use in warmer climates. If you’re a natural skin care fan like me, or you just want to use the same moisturizer of the ageless Jennifer Lopez, give Dr. Hauschka’s Rose Day Cream a try, and thank me later.

 

 



Why Should Retinol be in Your Skin Care Regimen?

Published on by

How does one product that unclogs pores, boosts collagen, reduces fine lines, and speeds cell turnover to help you even out any skin discoloration sound? It sounds kind of like a miracle product for some. This is what a Retinol will do for your skin. If used correctly and safely it will provide you with incredible results.

Retinoids can cause redness, flaking, and dryness but if you ease into use, you can avoid this transition. For the first two weeks, apply the retinol every three nights. If your skin does not seem to be too irritated you would want to try using it every other night for two weeks. After a month if your skin seems not to be flaking or too dry, apply every night. It is important to wait 15 minutes after washing your face before you apply. After a few minutes you will want to apply your night cream to prevent dryness.

When using a Retinoid, your skin cells are being turned over at a much quicker pace, leaving the new skin exposed to the elements. It is extremely important that you use SPF every morning. There is a good chance that your skin will be in a sensitive state so you need to protect it.

Retinoids were first used in skin care products in the early 1970s as a way to combat acne. Since then we have found that they treat much more. People look to these products to treat psoriasis, warts, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and aged skin. A retinoid is a topical form of Vitamin a which is the number one anti-wrinkle ingredient that dermatologists recommend to their patients. One of the best things about retinol is that it starts working the moment you put it on!



BB Cream-Much More Than A Cream

Published on by

HY040-hydroxatone-hydrolyze-bb-eye-luminous-radianceThe BB in “BB cream” stands for blemish balm or beauty balm. This product type has spread throughout Asia with growing popularity, and has slowly taken hold in Western markets. BB cream will be your all-in-one skin care product to replace your SPF, moisturizer, serum, primer, and foundation. These products are usually mineral-based, and are made to treat and cover age spots, sun spots, and acne.

Western skin care companies launched BB creams in 2012, but some formulas were lacking ingredients that care for the skin. When shopping for a BB cream, look for key ingredients like Vitamins C and E. These antioxidants provide effective anti-aging benefits. Another ingredient that is often added to these creams is Hyaluronic acid, which hydrates and plumps up the skin.

HY025-hydroxatone-anti-aging-bb-cream-broad-spectrum-spf-40-mediumSkin care customers struggle with finding their Holy Grail product when so many companies create their own versions. Hydroxatone has an Anti-Aging BB Cream with Broad Spectrum SPF40 and this product does exactly what it promises. It will firm, brighten, and moisturize your skin while creating a beautiful finish.

These key ingredients work at stimulating collagen, assisting with the regenerating process, and helping skin stem cells maintain their renewal process.

How can you ask for more from one product? Hydroxatone Anti-Aging BB Cream with Broad Spectrum SPF 40 will be your favorite all-in-one makeup and skin care product. It will make it easy for you not only to look your best, but you will feel great knowing that you are giving your skin the attention it deserves!

Imagine Being Hair-Free for Up to Six Weeks!

Published on by

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!
