New Product: FEI’D

Published on by

If you struggle with hyperpigmentation, uneven skin tone and aging skin then FEI’D may be the right product for your concerns. Pronounced “fade”, FEI’D combines Chinese medicine with modern Western science to provide effective skin care results. FEI’D contains 10 clinically proven key ingredients that will address pigmentation concerns and uneven skin tone as well as aging skin. With all of these key components for an effective skin brightening product, FEI’D is still 99% organic. It does not contain hydroquinone, bleaches, or mineral oil. It is paraben free, contains all natural fragrances and does no animal testing. We also find it valuable that FEI’D gives back to children in need, 100% recycles their products and packaging while using biodegradable and renewable ingredients.

So how does FEI’D work? The 10 clinically proven ingredients are Dianella, Ensifolia, Burberry, Mulberry, Licorice, Shanzha, Huang Qi, Fo-Ti, Panex Ginseng, Vitamin A and Vitamin E. The combination of these powerful antioxidants and botanicals will address age spots, melasma, aging and wrinkled skin. The powerful skin brightening ingredient Dianella Ensifolia has been proven to be over 20 times more effective than kojic acid for reducing hyperpigmentation and lightening the skin.

FEI’D has been dermatologically, allergy, and irritancy tested, making this star product appropriate for any skin type, even sensitive skin. FEI’D is recommended to be used twice daily for a minimum of three months for best results. You can continually use this product to help keep your skin tone radiant and firm. FEI’D also works equally as effectively on the body for hyperpigmentation.

Juice Beauty Stem Cell Technology

Published on by

One of SkinStore’s favorite natural brands, Juice Beauty, has developed a blend of fruit stem cells that penetrate the skin, repair DNA damage, and encourage new cell growth. The new cell growth will firm and eliminate wrinkles. Fruit stem cells are beneficial for all the vitamins and antioxidants which hydrate and improve elasticity in the skin that we tend to lack as we get older.

Juice Beauty conducted a clinical analysis testing of their Stem Cellular Repair Moisturizer and Eye Treatment in an independent laboratory by a Ph.D. Principal Investigator. The test ran for 6 weeks. Trial participants noticed a 36% reduction in length and depth of lines and wrinkles; 44% decrease in number of fine lines; 75% improved elasticity of the skin; 88% reduction in appearance of lines and wrinkles; 88% improved skin tone and luminosity; 96% noticeable improvement in the fine lines and wrinkles; and 100% improved hydration. As a girl who wants results, I can appreciate those stats!

Yonka for Men at SkinStore.com

Published on by

In recent years men have increasingly become major consumers of skin care products that provide the same anti-aging and personal care features as mainstream women’s skin care and cosmeceuticals. Men know that shaving, aging, and environmental stressed can have a significant effect on their skin, and many are choosing to actively seek skin care solutions.

Made popular in upscale spa’s and salons, Yonka has a full range of men’s skin care from cleansers to self-tanners and everything in-between.

Starting with the basic regimen, cleansing with the Yonka for Men Foam Gel both in the morning and in the evening will leave the skin hydrated and purified. This non-drying botanical based gel cleanser is great for men because most prefer a gel consistency than lathers up and rinses clean for their daily cleansing needs versus a cream based cleanser that can feel heavy on the skin even after rinsing.

After cleansing with the foam gel, shaving with the Yonka for Men Barber Shave is made easy even for the toughest beard on the most sensitive skin. This product is a multi-tasker that provides not only a close and clean shave with reduced irritation, cuts, and nicks but it also acts as a skin care product leaving your skin soft and smooth.

After shaving with the Barber Shave, the Yonka for Men Lotion YK is an alcohol-free skin energizer that prepares your skin for additional product if desired and also improves the effectiveness of the products already used during cleansing and shaving.

For optimal skin care, we suggest an exfoliating product to be used 1-3 times weekly. The Yonka for Men Foam Scrub is a fantastic product that removes dead skin cells which helps improve cell turnover, it tightens pores, rids ingrown hairs and black heads and leaves your skin deeply cleansed. This product is to be used after shaving and before a skin cream and is highly effective in prepping your skin for the Yonka for Men Masque which will further detoxify your skin and brighten your complexion while balancing the epidermis.

For added treatment benefits, the Yonka for Men Nutri Moist provides you with vitamin rich anti-oxidants to help protect your skin from environmental stress while the Age Defense will help combat the signs of aging. You can use one or both as need to give you softer, smoother, healthier skin. Top off your regimen with the Under Eye Gel both morning and evening to complete your skin care routine.

LightStim Anti-Aging Light

Published on by

The LightStim Anti-Aging light is a non-invasive treatment that will help to reduce the signs of aging and help to restore a healthy radiance within your skin. The LightStim is similar to a LED treatment you would receive from a licensed professional but has a smaller handle making it easier to use at home and more affordable. Many people prefer an anti-aging product such as the LightStim because it is safe, non-invasive, and does not require surgery. The LightStim is very easy to use and in just 20 minutes a day will really help the overall condition of your skin.

The LightStim uses advanced red and infrared LED’s to help support and create collagen and elastin in the skin. LED stands for light emitting diode. Diodes will give off energy in the form of light in a powerful and efficient way. The same way that plants absorb the energy from the sun to stimulate cells and build new proteins, the LED light therapy in the LightStim will help your skin cells to regenerate but with no UV exposure. The LightStim is able to send light rays to the cells of your skin which fuels it to produce more collagen and elastin. Collagen will help to plump up your skin so it will help to fill in fine lines and wrinkles, while elastin will help to firm and strengthen skin to prevent sagging.

The additional benefits of the LightStim include: reducing pore size, smoothing the texture of the skin, making the skin more even toned and radiant, firming and toning aging skin, and can be used to decrease puffiness around the eye area. In fact the LightStim anti-aging light is over-the-counter FDA cleared for periorbital wrinkles around the eye area. The LightStim can penetrate through the epidermis and into the dermal layer of skin, over time the dermal layer will fill up with collagen causing the wrinkle to be pushed out. This will help to plump the skin and diminish fine lines and wrinkles. The LightStim can also soften rough and dry skin by restoring its youthful appearance.

You want to use your LightStim 5-7 days a week for a total of 20 minutes at a time for at least 2 months to receive the full benefits of the product. If you are using a Retinoid or benzoyl peroxide you will want to apply these products only after you use the LightStim.

Anyone can use the LightStim Anti-Aging light, but it is best to consult your doctor or dermatologist first before beginning any new regimen.

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.
