StriVectin-SH Age Protect SPF30/PA+++

Published on by

We all know that when it comes to skin health, wearing sunscreen on a daily basis is as essential as drinking plenty of water, taking our vitamins, and getting ample sleep. In fact, we know that sunscreen is the single most important step in our skincare regimen. What many of us don’t know if that most conventional sunscreen products only protect against UVB rays, but UVA rays, which are invisible, are just as damaging to our skin. UVB rays are known as the burning rays, the ones that force melanocytes into overdrive to produce color to protect our cells, and thus a tan line is an indicator of skin damage. UVA rays are the aging rays, the ones that makes our skin crinkly and wrinkly – but don’t always produce a burn. Both UVA and UVB rays are ever present, even on cloudy days. That’s why it’s of the utmost importance to wear sunscreen on a daily basis to protect your skin from both UVA and UVB damage.

The new StriVectin-SH Age Protect SPF 30 is an ultra sheer yet highly potent oil-free treatment sunscreen that delivers the highest grade UVA protection available while shielding from UVB rays with sun protection factor of 30. This elegant formula also contains the patented NIA-144 molecule, which is clinically proven to repair sun damage while strengthening the skin’s barrier. The StriVectin-SH formula also contains a potent berry antioxidant blend to protect the cells and collagen against degradation and free radicals. And the product not only smells like delicious cucumber but also soothes the skin with cucumber and rose extracts.

Do you like StriVectin? We love the line, too! And we’re planning a very special giveaway surprise for you!!! Make sure to enter into our current giveaway on our Facebook page!


Treating Dark Circles & Under Eye Bags

Published on by

Dark circles and under eye bags make us look tired and frazzled and let’s face it… we sometimes feel that way, but don’t necessarily want to look like we’re exhausted and stressed. With the right products, we can offer an alternative to those heavy creams and concealers that do nothing but discourage you.

Most under eye dark circles and bags are caused by leaking blood vessels and inflammation.  Allergies, diet, and stress are contributing factors as well. It is important when selecting an eye product for these concerns, that you try something with caffeine. Caffeine will help to constrict blood vessels and address puffiness. One product that we highly suggest is the Anti-Aging Eye Cream by Glytone. This little eye saver contains caffeine, licorice extract, red tea, and glycolic acid. Red tea also works great for de-puffing, and the licorice extract will brighten the under-eye area. Another great eye product with caffeine is the La Roche Posay Hydraphase UV Eyes Hydrating Protective Eye Cream. This eye cream is very hydrating; safe for sensitive eyes, and also contains an SPF 29. Since the eye area is the most delicate skin on our bodies, it is important to protect it with an SPF.

Now that we have the treatment products under control, we suggest a good under-eye cover up product.  The Jane Iredale Circle Delete comes in three different color choices, containing two customized shades in one product. This is not only a concealer but a treatment product because it contains conditioners like avocado oil and Vitamins A, C, D, and E. It also has light reflecting elements to nicely disguise any under-eye flaws.

Whatever products you decide to use, remember it’s important to use a skin care product to address your concerns first; then add a concealing product to maximize your results.

NIA24 Sun Damage Prevention UVA/UVB Sunscreen SPF30/PA+++

Published on by

The days of greasy, chalky sunscreen are over. Sunscreen formulations are becoming much more elegant, and NIA24 (the sun damage correction & prevention expert) has once again stepped up to the plate with an innovative and impressive sunscreen product. You may be familiar with the renown NIA24 Sun Damage Prevention Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30, a physical sunscreen that helps to correct and prevent sun damage while supplying the skin with Pro-Niacin, a skin-strengthening compound. And now we want to introduce you to NIA24 Sun Damage Prevention Mineral Sunscreen’s big brother! NIA24 Sun Damage Prevention UVA/UVB Sunscreen SPF30 is here just in time for the sunny months.

NIA24 Sun Damage Prevention UVA/UVB Sunscreen SPF30/PA+++ contains a blend of active sunscreens that help to protect the skin from UVA (aging) and UVB (burning) rays. This special SPF blend has a rating of PA+++, which stands for the protection grade of a sun protection factor (SPF) product. While most SPF products receive a rating of PA+, NIA24 receives a rating of PA+++, the highest grade of defense against aging rays.

This advanced, super-absorbent formula contains Pro-Niacin which is clinically shown to improve skin tone, texture, and reduce hyper pigmentation caused by previous sun damage. It also contains ceramides, which promote vibrancy, and mango butter which nourishes the skin. Although this product is power-packed with a lot of ingredients it absorbs very quickly and doesn’t ever leave your skin feeling greasy or looking shiny. And because this formula is made to be sheer you can rest assured that you’ll never have a white residue left behind. NIA24 Sun Damage Prevention UVA/UVB Sunscreen SPF30/PA+++ works great for all skin types, is oil-free, non-comedogenic and is dermatologist recommended!

This elegant product provides your skin with superb protection without feeling medicinal or smelling like your grandma’s sunscreen. Now you’ve really got no excuses to expose your delicate skin to the sun’s harmful rays.

Quick Moisture for Dehydrated Skin

Published on by

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!

Hands need love too! We all have different lifestyles and skin so it’s no mystery that before we decide on products to use, we need to pin-point our concerns. Not all hands are created equal. Neither are hand creams! Do your hands feel dry, do they have wrinkles, is there sun damage or do we just need heavy repair? There are going to be products which can address each concern specifically. Here is a guide to help with the different concerns:

If you are looking for a deeply nourishing and hydrating product, look towards nourishing and hydrating products like the following: Barielle Intensive Hand Treatment Cream, AHAVA Dermud Intensive Nourishing Hand Cream, and L’Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream.

If your hands have age spots and sun damage, look towards these products which can help assist: NIA24 Sun Damage Repair for Decolletage & Hands, Jan Marini Age Intervention Hands, and Goldfaden Hands On.

Strivectin-SD Wrinkle-Fighting Trio Kit

Published on by

Don’t surrender to wrinkles, fight back! StriVectin’s newest Wrinkle-Fighting Trio Kit is your best defense against aging. The set includes a three step plan of attack: StriVectin-SD Instant Retexturizing Scrub (.75 oz), StriVectin-HS Hydro-Thermal Deep Wrinkle Serum (.5 oz), and StriVectin SD Intensive Concentrate for Stretch Marks and Wrinkles.

First, polish and prep your skin for treatment with the Instant Retexturizing Scrub. This scrub cleanses, smoothes and primes the skin for optimal absorption of treatment products. Skin texture is also improved with continued use.

Next, get to the root of the problem with Hydro-Thermal Deep Wrinkle Serum. This heat activated serum travels to the deepest layers of the skin where your wrinkles begin. The serum was developed to penetrate deeply into the skin helping to preserve the integrity of the Dermal Epidermal Junction. Over time the appearance of even the most pronounced wrinkles are lessened.

The final step in defense is StriVectin SD Intensive Concentrate for Stretch Marks and Wrinkles. StriVectin SD is a powerful treatment product and hydrator in one that fights stretch marks and wrinkles. This re-engineered formula has 4x more peptides and patented NIA-114 technology. NIA-114 was discovered in skin cancer prevention research to help rebuild skin layers. StriVectin’s Intensive Concentrate for Stretch Marks and Wrinkles has a proprietary complex of 8% NIA-114 and Peptide Actives which has been clinically proven to improve the appearance of wrinkles and stretch marks in as few as 2-8 weeks. The results speak for themselves!

The new StriVectin-SD Wrinkle Fighting Trio Kit is just in time for spring and a great gift idea for Mother’s Day! Hurry though, quantities are limited. This kit will only be available while supplies last.
