Eye Oasis

Published on by

The delicate eye area is often one of the first places to show dehydration. A lack of moisture can lead to wrinkled skin aeyeccentuating fines lines. Skin around the eyes is much thinner than other areas of the face, which is why you need a product that is specifically formulated for the eyes.  Here are a few of our must have eye creams for maximum hydration:

SkinCeuticals Eye Balm- A synergistic combination of highly effective, yet gentle phytochemicals rehabilitates mature, aging skin around the delicate eye area. This rich, corrective emollient treatment is specifically formulated to counter the three prime signs of aging— moisture loss, collagen breakdown, and free radical damage. A natural anti-inflammatory is added to reduce the appearance of under-eye puffiness, while a soothing agent derived from the chamomile plant calms irritated skin.

Suki Eye Repair Balm- An intensive, delicate eye treatment salve for all skin types. Formulated with beta carotene, pro-vitamin a (carrot oil), omega oils & fatty acids (evening primrose) & polyphenols (grapeseed). This combination of ingredients helps reduce visible lines & wrinkles, nourishes cells, helps prevent visible signs of aging, loss of firmness, oxidative stress, deep dryness & dehydration. This product is vegan friendly.

Murad Hydro Dynamic Ultimate Eye Moisture- This lightweight gel-cream infuses the delicate eye-area with essential nutrients needed to increase cellular hydration providing firmer, plumper, more youthful-looking skin. Suitable for even those with sensitive eyes.

Vichy Aquilia Thermal Eye Roll On- This lightweight hydrogel combines Vichy Thermal Water, Hyaluronic Acid, Dextran and Escin. This formula hydrates and soothes fragile eye contour tissues. Visibly reduces dark circles, puffiness and dehydration lines around the eye area.

Don’t forget, drinking plenty of water is critical to keep your skin hydrated and nourished!


Dry Winter Skin Woes

Published on by

Dry skin is caused by a lack of moisture in the skin and is often characterized by parched, flaking, tightness, itching and even stinging or burning. Often skin begins to look more mature and fine lines or wrinkles are more pronounced. Dry or dehydrated skin is frequently associated with red or chapped areas of the body such as the lips, cheeks, elbows and knees.

Dry skin can be caused by a variety of reasons including but not limited to lack of essential oils, weakened barrier function, inadequate moisturizing, poor diet, environmental factors or improper cleansing.

To ensure that you are providing your skin with all the proper nutrients to stay well hydrated be sure to moisturize daily with a moisturizer or lotion fit for your skin type. Also, only cleanse twice a day and avoid harsh scrubs or astringent cleansers that can leave the skin feeling exposed. Long exposure to dry or cold temperatures can affect the skin and cause “winter itch”; inflamed, itchy skin associated with exposure to extreme temperatures including excessive indoor heating.

As we age our elastin and collagen products begins to slow and our skin becomes natural more dehydrated. Conversely, in our younger years we experience more oil production but that is necessary to keeping our skin balanced and hydrated.

We suggest that you cleanse the skin in the morning with a gentle cleanser, apply a nonalcoholic or moisturizing toner followed by a moisturizer preferably with a sun protection factor. At night, cleanse the skin with luke warm water, tone again, apply any gels/serums/oils and apply a thick, emollient rich moisturizer to absorb into the skin while you sleep.

Skinceuticals Epidermal Repair: A Skin Saver

Published on by

For those of us that like to exfoliate, scrub, and slough off our skin on a regular basis, we often run the risk of overdoing it. The SkinCeuticals Epidermal repair has been specifically formulated for skin that has been compromised by in office peels or at-home blunders. It contains beta glucan and centella asiatica which provide a protective veil on the skin and help to repair and restore the skin barrier function while helping to stimulate collagen production.

The SkinCeuticals Epidermal repair will help with inflammation and will also help to soothe the skin to lessen irritation. If you use this product post-procedure it will help to protect, heal, soothe, and can also prevent scarring (but consult with your doctor before use).

It also makes a nice makeup base for us dry skin types because it contains dimethicone which helps to seal in moisture while preventing peeling and flaking.  This is also a great product to use if you have sunburn, windburn, rosacea, or if you are a retinol user. The Epidermal Repair will be a skin saver for anyone that may have overdone it with the peel or treatment, and wants to avoid looking red, scaly or blistered.

Say Goodbye to Dry Winter Hands

Published on by

Winter can wreak havoc on your hands. The skin on our hands is thin, delicate and often dry making them more vulnerable to cold winds, frost, and dry heated air.

SkinStore has the cure; Barielle Intensive Hand Treatment (gloves included) is an intense, overnight, moisture treatment. It’s formulated with revolutionary Oat Beta Glucan, which acts as a natural anti-irritant. The Barielle Intensive treatment is the perfect remedy for treating and healing rough, dry, scaled, and chapped hands. This greaseless penetrating cream provides a protective barrier directly on the skin to prevent dryness and is safe for even the most sensitive skin.

To apply, massage the cream into hands, put on enclosed gloves and allow the healing powers of the Oat Beta Glucan, Aloe Vera, Jasmine, Honeysuckle, Passion Flower, Rosehips, and Vitamin E to transform your hands into the soft, healthy and hydrated hands that you are seeking. No more irritation and dryness!

For best results microwave the gloves for 10 to 15 seconds, then put the gloves on and allow cream to penetrate overnight. Make sure the gloves are not too hot before putting them on.


Stay Hydrated While in Flight

Published on by

Long flights not only invade your sense of comfort, but they also aggressively deplete your levels of moisture, leaving your skin looking dull and lackluster. Here are a few product recommendations to soothe and hydrate your skin while you’re traveling:

NUXE Serum Creme Fraiche 24hr Soothing and Moisturizing Concentrate. This product absorbs nicely and provides 24 hour moisture leaving the skin toned, refreshed and hydrated all day long. Use morning and night a few days before and after you flight for prevention and maintenance.

Phytomer Marine Breeze (Souffle Marin) Energizing Oxygenating Serum.
This is a smart choice. Considering the less than great air circulating through the main cabin on a plane, this marine based serum actively neutralizes environmental aggressors and helps to defend the skin by re-oxygenating itself for a fresher appearance.

Jane Iredale Balance Antioxidant Hydration Spray.
Stow this baby in your purse and use it throughout the flight. A quick spritz and the antioxidant compound will help for your skin to resist any microbial and free radical harm.
