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.

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’!!

More sensitive skin, causing one to bruise easily

UV-A radiation, year in and year out, takes a toll on our skin.

THE BEST TREATMENT FOR PHOTODAMAGE IS PREVENTION“But what about those of us who spent half our lives in the sun??” you ask. “Is it too late for us?” While it’s true we can’t turn back the clock, there’s more we can do besides blame ourselves for those years of sunbathing.

Your Skin is Aging – and What To Do About It

stress free

I WANT TO GROW OLD GRACEFULLY . . . 

Is that too much to ask??

After the age of 20, our skin gradually becomes thinner and more fragile. Why? Because it produces about 1% less collagen. PER YEAR. In addition, aging causes sweat and oil gland function to decrease, resulting in less elasticity and with less ability for the skin to stay hydrated.

Now add to all of this the strain of day-to-day living . . .

stress
pollution
sun damage
poor diet
lack of sleep
alcohol
cigarette smoke

  .  .  . and the result is DRIER SKIN and MORE WRINKLES.

WHAT CAN WE DO ABOUT IT?     The quick answer is: A LOT.

Scientists and dermatologists continue to create – and improve – formulas to replace what Mother Nature has depleted. Judge for yourself by discovering, trying, and ultimately enjoying the ideal solution for you!

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.

  • Pollution gets it dirty and dusty
  • UVA and UVB rays damage its cellular DNA.
  • Alcohol and cigarette smoking (even second-hand smoke) dry it out and age it.
  • Stress weakens its immunity, causing acne, eczema, rosacea and aging.

Did you know that your skin naturally repairs itself while you sleep? During this essential rest time, your entire body slows down – even your temperature drops a bit. This is why nighttime is the ideal opportunity for you to enhance your body’s own natural, restorative routine by choosing a night cream that has the absolute highest-quality ingredients.

DO YOU HAVE SENSITIVE SKIN?

 There’s no one cause for sensitive skin. It is usually a combination of genetics, environmental stressors, skin products and even food allergies. But here are FIVE TIPS to help your skin weather its day-to-day challenges:

1. WATER, WATER, WATER Simply put, drink plenty of water. Well-hydrated skin is not only healthy skin but skin that heals faster. Use a peptide moisturizer by day and a rich night cream at night.

2. SUN PROTECTION Avoid the sun, especially if you have a sensitivity-related skin condition like rosacea. When you do go out, be sure to protect your skin every day with an SPF of at least 30.

Product Picks We♥  Theraderma Sun Protection Cream SPF30 – Moisturize and Protect your skin with one cream. Contains sun filters for protection against UVA and UVB rays, SPF 30.

Theraderma Line Preventing Serum – Jump start your dull, aging skin with this silky hydrating formula. Your skin will feel firm and smooth with an increase in the cell renewal and uptake of oxygen to each cell.

4. ONE STEP AT A TIME When you do choose a new product, take it slow and let your skin adjust. This is especially true for products known to cause irritation and sensitivity like retinol and glycolic acid.

Product Picks WeVitamin C Serum♥  Osmosis Calm – This level 2 vitamin A serum (.05% Retinaldehyde, a form of vitamin A) is a powerful anti aging treatment. Formulated to address sensitive skin conditions: rosacea, acne and dryness. Restores your skin’s moisture barrier by calming inflammation, normalizing oil, and hydrating cells.

The HA provides continuous moisture to the skin by binding up to 1000 times its weight in water.

5. STRENGTHEN YOUR SKIN’S PROTECTIVE BARRIER Your skin protects you, so try to avoid strong soaps or cleansers that have stripping acids and alcohols that diminish the barrier function of the skin. When the barrier is compromised, your already sensitive skin is more vulnerable to irritation and other reactions.
