If you want to have better skin start with the basics.
Cleansing and moisturizing your skin twice a day (morning and night) is a great start.
By cleansing your skin with a quality cleanser, you remove dirt, bacteria, dead skin cells, built up oils and other elements, allowing your skin to breath, and clearing the path for a moisturizer to do its job.
A cleanser that is effective, mild and non-drying is key as you do not want to make the moisturizer work harder than needed.
Moisturizers provide your skin with hydration, humectants and anti oxidants, keeping it hydrated and neutralizing free radicals.
A morning and night cleansing/moisturizing routine is a simple, and effective way to protect and nourish your skin on a regular basis.
Exfoliating your skin periodically is a great way to keep your skin looking bright and healthy by removing the buildup of old, dead skin cells from the top layer of your skin.
Many scrub products have been marketed to accomplish this using a variety of ingredients to either chemically remove or loosen the dead cells or remove them physically, literally "scrubbing" them off.
Scrubs contain ingredients like volcanic ash, crushed fruit pits and seeds and other physical scrubbing agents that can get into your eyes and make life difficult.
Here's the good news. YOU DON'T NEED A SCRUB.
That;s right !
To effectively exfoliate your skin all you need is a small, soft terry cloth towel and a good cleanser.
Start by washing your face and leaving it wet. Next, wet the terry cloth towel and apply the cleanser to the towel. Work the cleanser into the towel.
Then you simply rub the towel on your face GENTLY in a circular fashion.
When you have treated your face simply rinse your face.
Congratulations ! You just exfoliated your skin without an expensive, difficult to use scrub product.
Have a great day !
Avoiding the flu.
We are all concerned about getting sick. Whether you want to avoid contracting the flu or the coronavirus ( COVID-19) keeping you hands clean is one way to aid in keeping healthy.
Hand sanitizers are simply gels that contain ethyl alcohol. They help eliminate germs on your hands that, by inadvertent contact, can spread to your face, mouth, eyes and nose.
If you cant find hand sanitizing gels at the store, make some. Here's how !
Aloe Vera Gel
Isopropyl alcohol (91% minimum. 99% is best)
Mix approximately 2/3 cup of isopropyl alcohol and 1/3 cup of aloe vera gel in a bowl and stir vigorously until the ingredients are fully mixed together.
Place the mixture into a container and there you have it !
Stay healthy !
The Fix for Franken-Skin
Autumn is here ! The cool breeze in the air, the whipping winds. A nice change from summer, but with that comes dry, dehydrated, chafed, over-pigmented and sometimes blotchy skin.
Don’t worry your skin can recover from that Franken-Skin look.
One way to restore your natural glow and help to reverse summer damage is to eat your cosmeceuticals.
Foods rich in Omega-3 essential fatty acids and antioxidants, such as Vitamins A, C, E, can help to reverse summer damage and boost your skin's immune system.
What you eat has a direct effect on your skin. Some seasonal foods to eat are apples, sweet potato’s, clementines, cranberries and everything pumpkin. Lets not forget plenty of water!
Topically, incorporate a concentrated dose of Vitamin C serum right before you moisturize and use a pumpkin based scrub once or twice a week.
Pumpkin facials or pumpkin based scrubs and skin care products are not a myth. Pumpkin is packed with fruit enzymes and alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) which help to soften and soothe the skin, boost collagen production and prevent the signs of aging.
Voila! You now have some great skin tips to get you started on your path to flawless, glowing holiday skin!

End of Summer Skin Tip…
"End of Summer" skin can look dry, dehydrated, burned, lackluster and just plain dull.
To refresh your sun kissed skin try an aloe based moisturizer.

Not only does aloe soothe dry, sunburned skin, it's great for other types of minor skin irritations.
Give your skin a much needed drink of aloe with a power pack of humectants, emollients and much needed "vitaoxidants".
Try Total Face moisturizer and revive your healthy natural glow.
