Is your pore size a concern?

Published on by

Many of our customers here at SkinStore are troubled by large pores. If this is one of your concerns, have you wondered about the cause? People who have oily skin naturally tend to have larger pores. Oily skin is due to excess production of sebum. The oil then blocks the pores while collecting dead skin cells and dirt. There are many factors that determine pore size, including gender, genetics, age, and weather. Whatever the reasons may be for the enlarged pores, customers always have the same goal: reducing the size and making them less noticeable. We have come across the most effective way to minimize those pores: Perricone MD Intensive Pore Minimizer. NV193-pore-minimizer

The Perricone MD Intensive Pore Minimizer can be used morning and evening before your serums and moisturizers. Most customers saw a difference in their oil production and pore size within one week. This product will improve the skin texture, reduce pore size, and balance the skin’s oil production. The product does not leave a greasy feeling on the skin, which allows you to follow with your favorite serums and moisturizers. Many customers who have sensitivity to products have not had any issues using this one on a daily basis. This pore minimizer is formulated with alpha lipoic acid, which gently exfoliates and purifies the skin. Purifying the skin and clearing out the build-up that is enlarging the pore will give you the amazing results you have been looking for. Yes, primers and silicones give us the look of smaller pores but they only mask the issues. If you want to get to the root of the problem and say goodbye to enlarged pores, then the Perricone MD Intensive Pore Minimizer is the product that you have been searching for.


The Power of Catalyst AC-11

Published on by

As we age, our DNA changes and its function declines. The genes that help with cellular repair are no longer able to fully do their jobs, thus, the signs of aging we see on our faces. Catalyst AC-11 DNA Repair Serum, from Osmosis Pür Medical Skincare, features a repair mechanism called Zinc Fingers. Zinc Fingers are critical components of proteins and they provide the tools the skin needs to repair DNA and cellular damage while also stimulating collagen production. Included in this serum is AC-11, a specialized extract of Cat’s Claw that is clinically-proven to increase DNA repair. Creating even more DNA repair, AC-11 also heals and protects the skin from everyday elements, while decreasing inflammation at the same time. With Aloe, Zinc and Vitamin E, this serum creates the most change in the skin without causing any irritation.  OM012-osmosis-pur-medical-skincare-catalyst-ac-11-dna-repair-serum

With a proven, patented combination of Zinc Fingers and AC-11 that shows results in skin tags, broken capillaries, fine lines and wrinkles, scarring and pigmentation, Catalyst AC-11 rejuvenates skin cells from the inside out, permanently reversing the signs of aging for healthier, younger functioning skin.

Suggested usage: Shake lightly and apply 1-2 pumps morning and evening.


Estie Find Alert: Quench Your Skin with Algae!

Published on by

PT270-peter-thomas-roth-blue-marine-algae-maskI have an amazing find that I want to share with all my dehydrated ladies:

Peter Thomas Roth Blue Marine Algae Mask.

This mask is a powerhouse! We are talking about a nutrient-rich hydrating treatment that helps soothe and nourish skin with blue marine algae and other potent humectants. This gel mask helps prevent dehydration by retaining healthy water levels in skin over extended periods and through the most intense climatic conditions.

Blue Marine Algae is a nourishing seaweed that infuses skin with nutrients and humectants to help defend against dehydration and prevent future damage. Antarcticine, a unique glycoprotein sourced from Arctic glacial ice, helps skin retain water and protects against water loss in extreme climates or temperatures. Tea, sourced from the Jeju Islands of Korea, delivers deep nourishment and abundant moisture, leaving skin instantly hydrated and smooth with a healthy, dewy glow.

Over time, as the treatment balances skin’s hydration levels, fine dehydration lines are diminished.

Benefits:

• Suitable for all skin types.
• Hydrates and nourishes skin.
• Helps skin retain water.


Nurture Your Neck – Top Neck Creams

Published on by

As we age, our necks tend to show more lines and even give in to gravity a bit. Yet the skin is thin and a little more sensitive to aggressive treatments. So it’s best to take care when dealing with this delicate area. Here are our top choices:

NeoStrata Skin Active Triple Firming Neck Cream is brand new to SkinStore and is expected to fly off neostrata neckour shelves. This dermatologist-formulated brand really delivers results. What you get in this dream formulation is tightening, firming, collagen and volume-building, and a bit of exfoliation to smooth the surface of the skin. It has a light, creamy texture that feels luxurious. The brand is a proven winner and we are so excited they have launched a neck-firming product.

Alchimie Forever Firming Gel for Neck and Bust is a bestseller for the neck-firming category. With 15 reviews giving this product an average of 5 out of 5 stars, you know it has to be good! Formulated by a dermatologist in Switzerland, this gel will provide lifting, tightening and firming as well as lessen dark spots and repair damage. Now that’s what we call turning back time! It has a refreshing smell of rosemary that dissipates quickly.

Last, but not least, the Strivectin TL Neck Cream offers instant and cumulative results in this hydrating, collagen-building cream. It’s perfect to use before a night on the town. It will strengthen and dramatically help with sagging skin. This is an ultra-rich cream formulation. Perfect for dry skin, but it can be used on all skin types.

Be Rid of the Red!

Published on by

My fave new-to-me treatment product is the Topix Replenix Power of Three. This amazing skin saver has reduced my rosy cheeks back to a healthy glow, evened my complexion, and deeply hydrated my winterized skin. power of three

The power comes from three great ingredients. I get superior antioxidant protection with Resveratrol from red wine and Green Tea. They even take it a step further and use Caffeine USP to enhance the properties of the Green Tea! Additionally, the Hyaluronic Acid keeps the moisture bound to my skin and creates a youthful plumping effect.
This comes in two great formulations, Cream or Serum. The cream is in texture only. You would still use a moisturizer over it. I use their Topix Replenix Sheer Physical Sunscreen Cream SPF 50 during the day. I really love that as well, but will save those details for another time. The serum would be appropriate for combination-to-oily skin types and for the acne prone. Both are lightweight, fast-absorbing and ideal for those with rosacea or sensitive skin. Just a side note: the concentration of the Green Tea causes the product to appear as what they call a tan color. I think it would be comparable to a medium foundation shade.
Last but not least, I give it props on the packaging with their lid-less pump design. It’s really handy and there’s no lid to lose. I also whole-heartedly agree with the reviewers on our site that rate this product 5 stars! You deserve a 5-Star serum because after all, you are a 5-Star woman!

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.
