TONER – EVERY SKIN TYPE NEEDS IT!

THE BENEFITS OF TONER

With new skincare products being created all the time, it’s good to remember that one of them has been around since the beginning . . . TONER. Toner is a crucial and integral step in your daily skincare regime and should never be left out. Here’s why:

FIRST Toner removes any last trace of oil, dirt and make-up – a perfect finish to your cleansing routine,

SECOND Toner soothes and smoothes the surface of your skin and prepares it for your serum and moisturizer.

MOST IMPORTANTLY Toner restores your skin’s pH Balance.

Your Skin’s pH BALANCE is the acid-alkaline ratio in your skin.  The skin’s barrier – called the ACID MANTLE – blocks pollution, toxins and bacteria. Ideally, your Acid Mantle should be slightly acidic – too alkaline and your skin can become dry and sensitive. But you don’t have to understand Chemistry. You just have to use TONER –  twice a day, right after your cleanser, in order to keep that perfect balance.

FIND THE RIGHT TONER FOR YOU ~ select from an array of modern toners with high quality ingredients that are gentle but get the job done.

WHAT CAN RETINOL DO FOR ME?

 

RETINOL MAKES YOU LOOK
YOUNGER WHILE YOU SLEEP!

 

 

 

WHAT IS RETINOL AND WHAT CAN IT DO FOR ME?   Retinol is a member of the vitamin A family called retinoids, which our body requires for bone growth, healthy vision, a strong immune system, PLUS many anti-aging and health benefits for the skin.

Our bodies don’t naturally produce vitamin A, so we must consume different forms of it to meet our daily minimum requirement. Since our skin is the last organ to get the vitamins we take, it’s more important than ever to find a good topical source in order to take advantage of all Vitamin A has to offer. 

Theraderma Vitanol A Serum

vitamin A,serum,skin lightening

This small bottle deserves star billing for its many amazing properties and results! Theraderma Vitanol A Serum contains not only Retinol  – which thickens the epidermis and regulates the renewal of skin cells – but also soothing Aloe Vera Gel, Essential Oils, and Aquas Extracts of Chamomile and Calendula.

Used nightly, this serum will produce a younger looking skin!

For maximum benefit, you should apply Theraderma Vitanol A Serum every night in combination with your regular moisturizer.  Try one of these favorites:

 

for NORMAL or SENSITIVE SKIN . . .

Collagen Elastic Cream

“Goes on like buttah!” one of my clients likes to say. And it’s true that this light moisturizer not only feels like silk going on, but leaves your skin feeling like it, too. But don’t let its light feel fool you: it is chock full of everything your thirsty skin craves:  vitamins and proteins encased in a soothing Aloe Vera Gel formula.

 

 

 

FOR NORMAL, DRY or SENSITIVE SKIN . . .

Theraderma Bio Effective Cream

Repairs your skin while you sleep! Non-greasy and rich in vitamins A, B, C, D3 & E, multi-peptides, exotic butters, Aloe Vera gel and proteins. 

Specially formulated for nighttime, but you can also add a little water and use it as a day cream.

 

 

 

for NORMAL TO OILY, BLEMISHED, AND PROBLEM SKIN . . .

Vitamin B Cream

Even over- oily skin needs  a moisturizer. Why? Because efforts to dry-out your skin – with harsh soaps, stinging alcohol or even worse, time under a sun lamp – will only stimulate your body to provide more oil. What you need is a balance. Vitamin B Cream will provide this balance, leaving your skin looking and feeling just right.

 

 

 

 

 AND DON’T FORGET SUN PROTECTION!!!

Theraderma Sun Protective SPF Applying retinol to your skin makes SUN PROTECTION more important than ever. Don’t leave the house without slathering this on your skin, for it protects against UVA and UVB rays, SPF 30. Pop it into your purse and reapply as needed throughout the day.

SKIN CARE for the 21st CENTURY MAN

REAL MEN TAKE CARE OF THEIR SKIN!

Back in the 80’s, “Real Men Eat Quiche” was all the rage. Since then, we’ve come a long way. Forget fads. Real men want to look good as they age, just like the rest of us!

Let’s talk about skincare for today’s man.

IS A MAN’S SKIN DIFFERENT THAN A WOMEN’S?  The short answer is Yes. Thicker, rougher and with more collagen. Men also sweat more, which helps keep the skin hydrated. But aging takes its toll and means that the smart man takes care of his skin so that he looks as young as possible for as long a possible.

DO MEN HAVE TO USE DIFFERENT PRODUCTS? There are essential steps to skin care that are the same whether you’re a man or a woman. But we have choices for each step.

Here are my recommendations for MEN:

 

CLEANSING ~

THERADERMA CAMPHOR SOUFFLÉ OILY-ACNE CLEANSER

This cleanser appeals to the no-nonsense man who likes to keep things simple:
–  wet hands
–  take a dime’s worth of cleanser
–  ‘wash’ all the grit of the day away.

Camphor, clove oil and herbal extracts flush out  pores, leaving the face clean as a whistle – but not tight and dry. Best of all, this cleaner can be used as a shaving cream because it disinfects hair follicles.

 

 

 

TONING ~

THERADERMA EUCALYPTUS ASTRINGENT TONER

Toning is an essential part of any skin care routine because it exfoliates surface dead skin cells and balances the skin’s pH level. The key ingredient here is eucalyptus, which is an antiviral, antibacterial, antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory and antifungal oil. Its antiseptic properties make it particularly soothing and healing for shaving cuts or blemishes. 

 

 

 

 

TREATING ~

THERADERMA GLYCOLIC TREATMENT GEL

This oil-free gel with Glycolic Acid gives just-shaved skin the VIP treatment and prepares the pores to drink in moisture. Your significant other will see  – and feel – the difference in the smoothness of your skin.

 

 

 

 

 

Clean you can feel . . .

 

MOISTURIZING ~
for Normal-to-Oily, Blemished, and Problem skin

THERADERMA VITAMIN B CREAM

Helps acne-prone skin with Vitamin B, which regulates oil gland secretion. This means fewer clogged pores, fewer breakouts ,and overall smoother skin.

 

 

 

 

 

REGULAR, DAILY CARE
It makes all the difference

IMPROVE YOUR APPEARANCE NOW
and
KEEP LOOKING GOOD THROUGH THE YEARS!

It couldn’t be easier!

 

 

 

 

A Mud Mask with IMMEDIATE Results

SEE THE DIFFERENCE .  .  . now.

 

In this era of instant gratification, we have become impatient … standing at the microwave for our 7-minute entrees and wondering what’s taking so long … carrying our cellphones everywhere so we don’t miss a call … and complaining when our text messages aren’t returned, like — now!!

Likewisewhen we try a new skincare product, we look for a change right away.  We examine ourselves in the mirror repeatedly and have to remind ourselves that, “Change takes time”. And most of the time, this adage is true.  But get ready for an ancient remedy that shows instant results.

Volcanic Origins Face & Body Ash Mineral Clay Mud Mask

150 million years is a long time, but this is how far back you need to go to find the origin of volcanic mud and clay.  Even animals used this healing substance (by lying in it when injured) and we humans are catching up!

Apply a thin layer onto your face and you will feel a tingle and a pulling action as your skin is stimulated by this mask cleaning out pores, drawing out excess oil and increasing circulation. Wait 15-20 minutes (longer is ok), then rinse off with warm water using a washcloth to wipe off residue mask. 1-2 times a week is best.

Going to a special dinner party? Do a mask when getting ready. Your makeup will look like it was professionally done now that your skin is tighter, brighter and smoother. 

Good for all skin types – for both men and women. This mask pulls the toxins out of the skin for oily acne. For dry mature skin, it tightens and brightens the skin.

When you exfoliate, your anti-aging serums and moisturizers penetrate deeper and more easily so that they can do a better job of nourishing the skin cells. Without weekly exfoliation, the dead skin cells build up and cause a barrier on the surface of the skin.

Look in the mirror when you rinse off this mask and you will see a ‘glow’ and see tightened pores and smoother skin. And this is why when you apply Volcanic Origins to your body, you will feel relief

“But what about the delicate skin on my lips and around my eyes?”
Not to worry: Volcanic Origins has developed a mask for those areas as well. 

Volcanic Origins Under Eyes & Lip Contouring Mask

 

Adding Hemp Seed Oil for the delicate areas of the face, this volcanic clay mud mask gently stimulates the skin on your lips and underneath your eyes.  And Grapeseed Oil reduces inflammation and dark circles and leaves skin smoother.

 

 

 

 

TAKE A BREAK.
LIE BACK AND RELAX.
AND LET VOLCANIC ORIGINS MASKS DO THEIR WORK
and leave you
REFRESHED and BEAUTIFUL!

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’!!
