  • How To Encourage Your Significant Other to Take Better Care of their Skin

    Posted on September 30, 2016 by Editor

    Men's SkincareIf your significant other is anything like the typical boyfriend, the bathroom is full of bargain shampoo, combined body and face wash, and a complete lack of anything for moisturizing. Guys are often of the mind that if they buy one expensive product (pricey hair gel or luxury cologne), that the rest of their routine doesn’t matter. If you’re trying to keep your beau looking good for the long term, here are some tips to get them to follow you into skincare salvation.

     

     

    Try a product with multiple uses. 

    Guys really love being able to skip a step. They live for 2 in 1 shampoos, combined cleansers, and, hopefully, deodorant/antiperspirant. If your guy is constantly in a rush, try Arganistry’s Organic Face, Hair, and Body Oil. This 100% natural product loaded with organic argan oil can be used wherever moisture is needed. He can throw some in his hair and use any excess product on his face or coarse spots on his body. Bonus: using this product will soften rough hands. All the better to touch you with.

     

    Don’t use the term “beauty oil”.

    There are a lot of great face products to moisturize, reduce wrinkles, and even tone. There’s also a great chance that your guy won’t want to use it if you call it “beauty oil.” SCULPT’s Retinol Beauty Oil and Ganique’s Overnight Renew Beauty Oil are both great choices for powerful skin renewal. A generic term like “face oil” or “moisturizer” (really, will he know the difference?) can mean a visual of soft skin rather than pink bunnies and unicorns. 

    Avoid overly feminine fragrances.

    You might love the Aroma Dreams Lavender Massage Oil (to die for!), but unless he’s rubbing it on you, it probably won’t be in his wheelhouse. He’ll probably be more willing to try something earthy like Arganistry’s Moroccan Argan Body Oil. 

    Get him to try it with you.

    The next time you’re doing a face mask, ask him to join you. It’s a great bonding exercise and it gives you an excuse to be close. You can even offer to watch Sports Center highlights while you’re waiting. The dark color and masculine packaging of the Medyskin Brightening Mask with Charcoal avoids too much feminization. Or stick Alpha Light Body Bright Wash in the shower and promise to help wash his back and anywhere else he’d like.

     

    Find something just for him.

    Men like products that are designed with them in mind...even when it’s not actually different (man yogurt, anyone?). But with a product like Smooth Groom Beard Oil, your guy knows that this is just for him and his manly facial hair, not something repackaged just to appeal for him. Just subtly remind him that a smoother, nourished beard is all the better for you to feel against your skin.

     

    Don’t point out his flaws.

    No one likes to hear negative things about themselves, particularly from someone they love. Instead of focusing on wrinkles, dry hair, and rough skin, talk up the positives. Remind him how much you love running your fingers through his hair, how good citrus smells on him, and how you love cuddling next to soft skin. If he thinks that better skincare = more close time with you, you’ll get him exfoliating before you know it.

  • Fall Favorites

    Posted on September 23, 2016 by Editor

    fallskincare-blogsm (1)As the weather turns crisp and the leaves start to fall, it’s time to pack away the light creams and mists for heavier products to withstand the chill of winter. (But not the SPF! That’s a 365 days a year product.) If you’re not sure which products best suit your new fabulously fall lifestyle, don’t worry --we’ve got you covered.

     

    Dry skin is one of the banes of the chillier seasons. The lower temperatures and thicker clothing zaps moisture and leave skin feeling like a shriveled leaf. To avoid the feeling of itchy, tight skin, try Arganistry Shea Body Lotion. This lotion is formulated specifically to target dry skin, with organic argan oil and shea butter working together to enrich the skin. These natural conditioning agents eliminate dryness by locking in moisture and preventing loss of hydration. It is rich in Vitamin E, which calms and softens skin to restore skin to smooth, supple glory.

     

    There are few parts of your body more vulnerable than your face--skin has to deal with harsh winds, freezing temperatures, and heating elements that zap all moisture. If you’re not looking forward to wearing a ski-mask all summer, you can protect your skin with Arganistry Maracuja Oil. Argan and maracuja oils quickly penetrate skin to provide hydration to the deepest layers, healing skin from the inside out. Essential nutrients, such as Vitamin C, nourish skin’s health despite the ravaging effects of winter. The result is more luminous, hydrated skin and a glowing complexion.

     

    Vitamin C is a key antioxidant--it protects skin from damage, helps to brighten your complexion, and even reduces the appearance of wrinkles. Fall is a great time to invest in Vitamin C renewal--like Medyskin Vitamin C Beauty Oil. It targets sun and UV damage that you accumulated during the summer while fortifying skin against the future degradation that hits hardest in the winter. With intense moisturizers like avocado and rosehip oil, this product continues to hydrate, strengthen and regeneration cells for improved health and tone.

     

    A change in the season doesn’t always bring to mind balanced and even skin--usually it’s just the opposite. But using the Alpha Light Skin Bright Mask prepares skin for the changes of the season by exfoliating dead skin cells, moisturizing, and resurfacing skin. With a more balanced appearance and deep moisturizing, you’ll have readied your skin for the harsher weather to come--and allow it to fully absorb the much needed moisture and nutrients.

     

    As you get together your fall wardrobe (boot season is the best), don’t forget to swap in these new products to help your skin look its radiant, luminous best all season long.

  • How does sleep affect your skin?

    Posted on December 10, 2015 by Editor

    A goodnight’s sleepaffectsskin-250x250sleep is crucial for your skin health. The stress hormone, cortisol is produced when you suffer from lack of sleep. The severity of skin conditions such as acne or psoriasis can be increased due to sleeping poorly. Skin can clear up when you catch up with sleep and therefore skin health can be improved. When the skin ends up inflamed from lack of sleep, collagen and the skin’s natural hyaluronic acid gets broken down which in turn affects the skin’s glow.

During a healthy sleep cycle, water in the body is being processed for removal. When the water in the body is not balanced due to lack of sleep, the water can lead to puffy bags and dark circles under your eyes, fine lines,wrinkles, and even dryness.

  • Vitamin C- What are the benefits?

    Posted on November 3, 2015 by Editor

    vitamincbenefits-250x250 Vitamin C provides all-day skin protection. Using Vitamin C as a topical serum or a moisturizer that contains a low molecular weight of Vitamin C will help serve as a potent anti-oxidant that can help rejuvenate environmentally aging skin. Sunlight, smoking and free radicals are all factors that can contribute to collagen decline. Levels of

     

    Vitamin C in the skin declines with age, so topically replenishing these levels directly can help stimulate collagen levels and treat stressed skin conditions such as sun-damage and age spots. Firm and youthful skin are achieved as collagen begins to form and free radicals that affect the skin are lessened after applying Vitamin C topically on a regular basis. Collagen synthesis slows down with aging, Vitamin C rejuvenates boosts synthesis when it is applied.

     

    Many people think that ingesting Vitamin C should be just as effective as applying it topically for the skin, but this is not the case because humans and a few other species lack the ability to be able to produce Vitamin C that is so critical for beautiful, healthy skin.

     

    Applying Vitamin C topically is 20 times more effective than ingesting it. Optimal levels are achieved in the skin by just applying Vitamin C for 3 days. Healthy collagen levels are attributed by Vitamin C. Furthermore, hydroxylation reactions involved in Collagen formation are facilitated and gene transcription is enhanced in collagen synthesis. Constantly replenishing vitamin C topically replenishes and rejuvenates the skin and helps achieve healthy younger looking skin.

  • How to get your skin ready to transition from summer to fall

    Posted on September 30, 2015 by Editor

    summertofall-blogsm
    As the warm summer season comes to a close and fall is approaching, it is important to change our skin care regimen just like we change our wardrobes seasonally. During the summer our skin care regimen is all about controlling our skin’s oil production and protecting our skin from UV rays. Our fall skincare regimen should consist of daily skincare products that repair sun-damage that occurred during the summer, and also of products that help keep our skin moisturized from the Autumn’s cooler, drier weather conditions.

     

    It is common to have rough dull skin build up of skin from the summer. Make sure to start to exfoliate daily to rejuvenate your skin. Whether using a daily acid exfoliator that is specific to your skin type or a daily rejuvenating scrub, both of these methods are great for regenerating new skin cells. Your body should not be ignored! Use an exfoliating scrub in the shower to rid of dry patches before they occur. A creamier moisturizer specific to both the face and body during the day and a rich nightly moisturizer to further the moisture component of your skin should be used after daily and weekly exfoliation, daily and nightly to replenish the moisture back into your skin. Layering products on the skin by applying a serum that helps repair, moisturizer, and nourish after cleansing is also a way to increase the repairing of sun-damage that resulted from the summer season. Leave the serum on for a few minutes to soak into your skin before topping with your daily SPF or your rich nightly moisturizer to seal the serum in.

     

    A gentle daily cleanser should be used daily, as using an overly cleansing cleanser could strip all of your skin’s oils during this season which may result in excessive dryness and clogged pores, of which would defeat the change in your skincare regimens whole purpose. Look for a cleanser that removes dirt, makeup and excess oil. A cleanser that works on a variety of skin types is best.

     

    Keeping water temperature not too hot is also key to keeping your skin it’s best. As weather gets colder, shower temperatures get hotter, which can be havoc on the skin. If water temperature is too hot it can result in the skin being dry, scaly, and natural oils being stripped away from the skin. If you must have your shower at a hot temperature, make sure that the temperature is reduced to warm if you cleanse your face in the shower. A product that is commonly used less during the fall and winter is primer. Primer should be continued into the fall and winter as it locks in moisture even further between a serum and and SPF moisturizer.

     

    Last, but not least, do not lessen your SPF applications. Just because bright sun is not apparent during the colder seasons, does not mean that the UV rays are not still strongly existent within the environment. Sun-damage can still occur during both the Fall and Winter seasons. In a nutshell, here is a list of products that you should make sure is included into your skincare regimen for the fall:

     

    Gentle daily cleanser that is best for all skin types
    Gentle daily exfoliator or scrub
    Daily serum that nourishes and repairs sun-damage
    Daily SPF (SPF 30 at the least)
    Nightly rich moisturizer

  • Who should use retinol and what does it do?

    Posted on September 25, 2015 by Editor

    retinoluse-blogsm It is never too early to start using retinol based products. Retinol slows the breakdown of collagen, minimizes fine lines and wrinkles, and treats dark spots. Psoriasis, blotchiness due to sun-exposure, and acne are all conditions that can be treated by retinol. When a retinol is applied, skin cells rapidly turnover, therefore resulting in new cell growth. The deepest layer of skin where wrinkles form is thickened, during the first weeks of use it is normal to experience redness and peeling. Brown spots are sloughed off and the production of melanin is reduced.

     

     

    Consistent daily usage over a period of 3-6 months would be how long it would take to see results. Building skin toleration to retinol is also key, when it comes to achieving most optimum results. It is recommended to start with applying a retinol once every other night as most do experience irritation when first starting retinol applications. If any irritation occurs, it should subside within a few weeks. Sun exposure should be avoided and skin should be protected with at least an SPF 30. Do not combine the use of retinol with products that are made with salicylic acid, sulfur, resorcinol, or benzoyl peroxide. Retinol being used in combination of these ingredients can cause severe skin irritation. Those who are looking for an aggressive topical daily product that are looking to treat fine lines, wrinkles, acne, aged skin, and other conditions should consider Retinol as it is a frontrunner in their skincare regimen.

  • How to pick the best beauty oil

    Posted on September 22, 2015 by Editor

    beautyoil-blogsmBeauty oil for the skin is all the rage lately with those who are skin conscious. This is because these fruit, plant, and vitamin based oils are capable of locking in moisture, treat fine lines, wrinkles, and can prevent your skin from breakouts. Choosing the best oil for your skin is pertinent to the specific concerns you would like to treat.

     

    Oils that contain anti-inflammatory ingredients are best for dry skin types because of their ability to keep irritants out of the skin. When skin is dry, irritants are able to inhabit the skin easily and an oil that is an anti-inflammatory base can help create a shield against free radicals that enter the skin. Hydration is needed to be replenished back into the skin with these oils to build back up a barrier which is also known as the acid mantel, of which is normally non-existent with overly dry skin. Anti-inflammatory based oils can prevent flakiness and treat redness of the skin. A daily moisturizer in addition to this type of serum would be useful to seal the serum into the skin.

     

    Anti-oxidant based oils can help benefit normal skin types by helping protect the skin from sun-damage. Damage that is caused by UV rays on normal skin types can be the cause of fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots. These oils also contain anti-aging and healing properties. Not only do these anti-oxidant based oils keep normal skin balanced, they can keep the skin hydrated and give the skin a healthy glow.

     

    For combination skin, keeping the skin balanced is key, both anti-microbial anti-oxidant blended oil is essential to protect the skin from both sun-damage and breakouts. Anti-microbial blended oils can help with both hydrating dry skin, while at the same time treating bacteria in oily areas of combination skin types to prevent future breakouts.

     

    It is common to think that oil should not be applied onto oily skin types. Oily skin types can benefit from Anti-microbial oils that can destroy bacteria in oily acne prone skin types to help balance oily skin and prevent and treat breakouts.
