4 STEPS TO BALANCING OILY SKIN

I HAVE OILY SKIN . . . SO WHAT?!?

THANK GOODNESS FOR THERADERMA!! 

With over 30 years of skincare research, THERADERMA works with the best of Mother Nature and Science to bring you exceptional quality at an affordable price. Nowhere is this quality more evident than in its carefully calibrated system for oily skin.


If you’re like most people with oily skin, you’ve not only tried a slew of different products … but also a medication or two … plus hormones … and sun lamps … and sheer elbow grease as you scrub with harsh soaps that leave your skin irritated and ultimately oiler than ever. 
Give your skin a break!

The most important thing to remember about oily skin is this:  DRYING IT OUT MAKES IT MORE OILY! WHY? BECAUSE IT STIMULATES THE OIL GLANDS AND MAKES THEM OVER-PRODUCE.

HERE’S ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW . .  .  

FOUR STEPS TO BALANCING OILY SKIN

DAILY CLEANSER
DAILY TONER
DAILY MOISTURIZER
(yes, even for oily skin)

STEP ONE — DAILY CLEANSER

THERADERMA CAMPHOR SOUFFLÉ CLEANSER

More than just a cleanser to remove make-up, Camphor Souffle Cleanser lifts oil, dead skin cells and bacteria without dying out your skin and stimulating oil glands. Aloe Vera Gel makes it gentle enough even for acne, and Camphor, Clove oil and five different herbal extracts – Ivy, Watercress, Lime Tree, Lavender and Soap Wort – make this a thorough cleanser.

 

 

 

 

STEP TWO — DAILY TONER

REMEDIES FOR ALL SKIN TYPES

Do you find yourself admiring the exquisite skin
of magazine models?

We’re surrounded by perfection whenever we open a magazine, watch TV or films. Models and celebrities sometimes make it disappointing for us mere mortals even look in the mirror! The standard they project is pretty hard to live up to.

BUT DON’T GIVE UP!!

Starting today, you can begin to take steps to make your skin all it can be by:
1)  making informed choices about the products – and ingredients – you use
2)  recommitting yourself to a regular, daily skincare routine.

You have nowhere to go but up!!

Let’s take a look at the most common skin types and see what help is available:

AGING SKIN

USE A RETINOID.  A retinoid helps generate new skin cells, so lines and wrinkles are less noticeable. But whatever you use, if you aren’t also using a sunscreen, what’s the point?  It is crucial to protect your skin  from UV light or you are inviting more damage. Find products that contain antioxidents and anti-inflammatory agents (found in  vitamins) that protect you from the powerful infrared energy of the sun.


THERADERMA INSTANT OXYGEN SKIN REVIVAL MASK

Prepare to see your skin replenished and rejuvenated after just one application. Peptides, vitamins, amino acids and antioxidants are just a few of the riches this mask delivers. 


LUSTERLESS SKIN 

EXFOLIATE.  When you don’t slough off old skin cells regularly, they build up on the skin’s surface. But don’t exfoliate more than twice a week because, believe it or not, there are friendly bacteria that live on the surface of your skin that are crucial to maintaining that healthy ‘glow’. And remember, when it comes to your skin: BE GENTLE.

exfoliate,dry skin,oily,acneTHERADERMA PUMPKIN ENZYME PUREE

Mmmm  . . .  sounds good enough to eat, doesn’t it?

Chock full of vitamins, amino acids and enzymes, this luscious puree is good for all types of skin, even acne prone – but not sensitive or irritated skin. Helps diminish fine lines, age spots and its exfoliation properties help restore skin’s natural glow.


OILY SKIN

BALANCE IS KEY.  If you have oily skin and try to dry it out with strong astringents or, even worse, by eliminating a moisturizer in your skincare routine, guess what: your body will work overtime to produce more oil. You can’t fool Mother Nature!  Try a cleanser that contains a combination of salicylic and glycolic acid to normalize your skin. And here is a moisturizer that is ideal for oily skin:

This light but vitamin-rich moisturizer is perfect for skin that is on the oily side. It gives just enough moisture so that your skin maintains the proper balance. Contains Aloe Vera Gel, Aquas Extracts of Chamomile, Cucumber, Blackcurrant Extract, Tamarind Extract, Apple Extract, Yeast Extract (Vitamin B), and Ginseng Extract

 

 

ACNE-PRONE SKIN

BE GENTLE. Those with acne often have sensitive skin, so resist the urge to pick, squeeze and scour those blemishes away. 


THERADERMA CAMPHOR SOUFFLÉ OILY-ACNE CLEANSER

Camphor, Clove Oil and five herbal extracts gently cleanse without your needing to rub or scrub. Along with deep cleaning, this shuffle helps slough off dead cells that clog pores. Also makes an excellent shaving cream!

 

 

You’ll find that each of these products will improve
the look of your skin in no time.
And don’t forget: proper cleansing is a must
before applying any moisturizer, mask or serum.  

ENJOY YOUR ‘GLOW’!!

 

Win-Win: Foods Good for your Body AND your Skin

 

H A P P Y  N E W  Y E A R!

 

It’s the first week of a brand new year and the perfect time to think about what you can do better.

What if by eating healthier you could also improve your skin?  Win-win, right? Let’s take a look at some premier foods that do double duty.

 

 

WALNUTS

WALNUTS are tasty on their own but can also be incorporated into so many recipes. Best of all, they are packed with omega-3 fatty acids, which help protect your skin from the damage caused by ultraviolet radiation. A 1/4 cup provides more than 100% of the daily recommended amount Other nuts, such as ALMONDS, are also a good source of omega-3 fatty acids.

 

AVOCADOS

AVOCADOS give us Vitamins C, B5, B6, and K, plus Potassium. They are also rich in Vitamin E, which helps the skin repair itself and keeps it moisturized and supple. The AVOCADO is used in many skin care products – like this one:


THERADERMA UNDER EYE AND NECK CREAM

 

The areas underneath the eye and on the neck are particularly fragile, which is why they require extra-special care. This luxurious cream is especially good for normal to dry and sensitive skin types. Along with Avocado Oil, Theraderma Under Eye and Neck Cream also contains:

 

 

  • Aloe Vera Gel
  • Olive Oil
  • Peach Kernel Oil
  • Milk Protein, and
  • Extracts of Rosemary and Sage Leaves and Ginseng Extract


SALMON

SALMON is another food rich with omega-3 fatty acids, which protect against sun damage and also reduce inflammation in general. SALMON is also a good source of Vitamins B3, B5, B6, B12, D, Iodine, Choline, Biotin and Potassium. All that, and it tastes good, too!

BLUEBERRIES

BLUEBERRIES are sometimes called “superfood” and for good reason! This delicious fruit is chock full of antioxidants — especially vitamins C and E – which protect the tissues in your body and help repair damage. Other berries, including blackberries, raspberries and strawberries, are also rich in nutrients that are good for your skin. Do you suffer from very dry skin? Try this blueberry-rich moisturizer  . . .

OSMOSIS IMMERSE MOISTURE BOOST

 

Osmosis Immerse Moisture Boost is so soothing for dry skin, with its formula of antioxidant oils from:

– Blueberry Seed Oil

– Vitamin E

– Lavendar Oil

– Lemon Essential Oil

– Citrus Oil

– Calendula oil – an anti-inflammatory that softens skin and helps soothe eczema, inflamed or itchy skin, and even wounds.

 

FLAXSEED


FLAXSEED
is easy to add to your protein shake, cereal, French toast, muffin mix, or breadcrumb mixture. Sprinkle it often – and generously – for it’s an excellent source of those valuable omega-3 fatty acids that promote hair, skin, and nail growth – and, in particular, add luster and shine to your hair. Flaxseed contains lignans, which also act as antioxidants, playing an important role in fighting cancers as well. If you have oily, sensitive, or acne-prone skin, try this cleanser:


ILIKE MINERAL EXFOLIATING WASH

 

Gently cleanses while at the same time calming irritated or sensitive skin, with:

  • Flaxseed oil
  • Lavender oil
  • Omega-3 and Omega-6 Fatty Acids
  • Vitamin F

 

 

 

 

These are just a few of nature’s wonders that make us look and feel healthier. Stay tuned for more.

  • FRESHLY CLEANED FACE / DIRTY PILLOW CASE WHATS WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE?
    Your face and head press against your pillow all night long, and after a few days, that pillow case is not so clean anymore. You should change the case several times a week. ALSO: have you ever noticed how dust accumulates on your bedside table and dresser top? It’s on your pillow, too – so cover it up even if you don’t make your bed.

 

  • HYDRATE, HYDRATE, HYDRATE
    Your skin is 90% water, so flush it out by drinking lots of water and eating fresh fruit and vegetables – which themselves are mostly water.

 

  • LOTS OF LATTES – OR A MONTHLY FACIAL??? YOU DECIDE.
    Reset your priorities and if you have to, forego a few expensive treats and instead have a professional facial one a month. Your skin will show the difference!

What’s Been on your Mind? ASK LINDA

 

anti aging,skincareOnce a month I’ll share the questions I receive most often. Perhaps you’ve wondered a few of these things, yourself . . .

QUESTION: “I’m a no-nonsense person and not into glamour at all. Why can’t I just wash my face with soap? Is it that bad???”

LET me get right to the point:  YES.

cleanser,dry skin,gentle cleansing gelHere’s why: Soaps and many foaming cleansers are just too drying. Those 30 wet and soapy seconds may feel good but they dehydrate your Epidermis (top layer of skin). Many of us grew up using soap and that tight feeling after cleansing means, “All clean!” But what it really means is “All DRY.” Which puts extra pressure on your moisturizer to not only moisturize, but repair.

Remember, as we age, our skin dries out, leading to fine lines and wrinkles. Everything we put on our face should be helping it, not hurting it.

gentle cleansing gel,dry skin

Regardless of skin type, here’s the remedy — 

THERADERMA GENTLE CLEANSING GEL – with six herbal extracts helping to cleanse, moisturize, purify, and calm the skin – cannot be beat. Also removes makeup and mascara too. I get consistent calls and emails about this product because it is not only good for ALL skin types, but it makes the skin feel so-o-o nice after you’re done!

BUT — If you find it too darn hard to give up that soapy, foamy feel – and you have NORMAL SKIN – try this:

TIZO GENTLE FOAMING FACIAL CLEANSER is a soap-free tizo foam cleanserfoam designed to remove all makeup, sunscreen and the grit of the day  —  without drying out your skin. The ph-balanced, sulfate-free formulation conditions and moisturizes the skin, rather than stripping away lipids, and leaves the skin soft and supple.

_______________________________________________________________

THIS IS A GOOD  TIME to remind everyone to please take a moment to leave a review on my website when you love a product. I know it takes a few extra moments, which is why a quick call or email is what I usually get.  But I do think it’s helpful for people when they shop to get feedback from those who are using the product. Just go to the product page and scroll down to the  bottom, and click on “Write A Review”. Thank you in advance!!
_____________________________________________________________________________________

QUESTION: “I can’t afford all kinds of creams and products. Can’t I just use my moisturizer around my eyes?”

Makes sense, right? I mean, skin is skin. Except that the skin around your eyes is much, much thinner than the rest of your face. And what that means is that it is far more sensitive to products. Your eyes will usually burn or sting when you try your face moisturizer near your eyes. Eye creams are formulated with this more fragile skin in mind.

THERADERMA MICRO SILK C EYE CREAM is aptly named, for it gives a smooth and vitamin c,eye creamsilky appearance. And it is reasonably priced! You need only a tiny amount for each eye, so it lasts a long time.

With Aloe Vera Gel as its first ingredient, this Eye Cream is sure to soothe the delicate tissue under the eyes. Almond oil, safflower oil, peach kernel oil, multi-vitamins, peptides and Ginseng extract also help reduce dark circles and puffiness.

THINK ABOUT IT — You can cover your hair with a hat or hide a few extra pounds with the right outfit. But your face is front and center every single day! Isn’t it worth a little extra time and ‘trouble’ to help it be its very best?

I look forward to more of your questions!
