When I started my esthetics training we quickly learned the process to healthy skin! “Cleanse, tone, moisturize, protect!” Being a girl with acne-prone, oily skin, I didn’t want to add any sort of moisturizer to my skin. I sat down with an instructor one day to go over my regimen. She asked what moisturizer I used, and I said, “Oh! My skin is oily, so I don’t use one!” She looked at me like I was crazy! She explained to me why even oily skin needs a moisturizer, and now, dear friends, I will share that information with you.
You see, believe it or not oily skin can still be dehydrated, meaning it is lacking water, not oil. Dehydration in skin can lead to overactive sebaceous (oil) glands making the skin oily. Using an oil free moisturizer will balance out moisture levels, which will help keep oil production at bay.
It took a couple of months for me to even believe this enough to try it. I finally did, and wouldn’t ya know it! She knew what she was talking about! If you still aren’t buying it, just give it a few weeks. Try an oil free moisturizer! La Roche Posay Effaclar Daily Mattifying Moisturizer is one of my favorites. I bet you’ll notice the difference!
During any season it’s smart to keep sun protection at arms reach. There are now products however to achieve more then just sun protection bringing you closer to perfection.
Why settle for less when you can get more? With recent technology advances, we are able to achieve better knowledge of ingredients and create products that cover many concerns.

Do you want an anti aging product that is natural? Many of our customer would shout out a loud “Yes, Please!” As an Esthetician here at Skinstore.com, I help people select the right products for their skin everyday. Many of the customers I help want to fight off the signs of aging (Who doesn’t?) and many of those same customers are also concerned about the products they use.

So with that being said, I have compiled a list of the top five natural anti aging skin care creams we carry here at Skinstore.com.
Infused with Hyaluronic acid, this moisturizer glides on smooth and absorbs quickly. It has a light scent which was described by one of our reviewers as “Like breathing in a French herb garden on a dewy morning”. I think that sounds just fabulous!

While we all love the bright sunshine, we are warned daily to keep our interaction with the sun to a minimum and to use SPF protection to block the harmful rays. What we don’t realize is that without the sun we most likely may not be getting enough of the essential Vitamin D our body needs and what the importance of the vitamin is.
Vitamin D plays a very important role in our bodies. This vitamin is involved in regulating minerals in our bodies. Vitamin D also works in boosting your immune system, preventing autoimmune diseases and even preventing cancer. It helps to restore weak bones, and helps to heal psoriasis. So the bottom line is that it is a very essential vitamin our body needs to stay healthy and one that we can become deficient in easily. It is important to be aware of the amounts we get to maintain a healthy balance. You can obtain this important vitamin in other ways without sun damage but it’s up to you to reach out. Aside from supplements, there are skin care products specifically formulated to supply your skin with D. I suggest the Goldfaden Vitamin D Face Cream. We can stay safe by being aware and addressing the proper concerns we have. You can still blow the sun a quick kiss without losing some of the benefits it has to offer.

Dehydration is a condition that can affect all skin types. There are both external and internal factors that can lead to dehydration. Common causes are change in climate, pollution, hormonal changes, being on a first name basis with your local baristas…just to name a few.
If you are battling with dehydration, one factor to consider is your current skin care regimen. Are you using the right products for your skin? For example, if you only experience the occasional breakout here and there but you are using an acne cleanser, it may be too aggressive for you and could be stripping too much of your skin’s natural oils. Try switching to a mild cleanser and using a spot treatment instead.
One way to add additional moisture back into your skin is to incorporate a hydrating serum into your current routine.
My personal favorite is the H2O Plus Oasis 24 Hydrating Booster. This oil-free formula absorbs easily into your skin without leaving a heavy or greasy feeling. The Hydrating Booster has time-released moisture to help maintain hydration throughout the day. One quick tip; the product does need to be shaken prior to each use. Also, since I started using the Hydrating Booster I have found that I am using less of my moisturizer each day so I’m saving money!

It’s likely that you’ve heard of seaweed wraps and algae treatments at luxurious spas and retreats. But algae isn’t just for celebrities anymore. There are a plethora of different algae-based products on the market that can be enjoyed by just about anybody.
Algaes are abundant in amino acids and minerals. There are different types of algae (red, blue, brown, green) that may provide different skin and health benefits. Algaes have been known to provide toning, detoxifying, re-mineralizing and moisturizing benefits. We offer many sea mineral and algae enriched products. Here are some favorites that we love:
H2O Plus Sea Results Deep Sleep Recovery Cream contains sea mineral complex which delivers kudzu root extract, marine-derived collagen, nutrient-rich phospholipids and firming marine algae to help promote long-term elasticity overnight.
Thalgo Marine Collagen Cream This cream helps to fight the first signs of aging while it helps to prolong the skin’s fresh and youthful glow!
Algae is great externally, but it’s also beneficial when taken internally. Maybe you’ve heard of (or even tasted) wakame salad at your favorite sushi restaurant. This delicious salad is simply yummy sea vegetable (seaweed) that’s seasoned with vinegar and garnished with sesame seeds. If you see it on a menu, I suggest that you try it! It’s healthy, nourishing, and tasty! It’s also great to take algae supplements internally if you can’t get your hands on a wakame salad. Iodalg Algae Capsules are a great choice to provide the body with detoxification, but make sure to speak to your doctor before starting any supplement regimen!
What’s your favorite Algae product? Are there any other sea ingredients that you like to use in your skincare & body regimen? Caviar extract is popular too! Share with us on Facebook & Twitter!
