DRY SKIN RELIEF

Whether you’re sixteen or sixty,
dry flakey skin can be a drag —
but it doesn’t have to be!

How you treat your skin plus the products you use
will either HELP or HURT.

FIRST AND FOREMOST
Use a gentle touch when you care for dry skin –
no scrubbing or rubbing!

GOOD TO KNOW
Dry skin doesn’t produce enough of the natural oils that balance and protect your skin. Harsh cleansers make this problem worse because they wash away these oils.  

To help your skin retain its natural oils, AVOID the following:
*Deodorant Soaps*
*Perfumed Soaps and Cleansers*
HOT water * HOT baths
*alcohol*
*fragrance*
*retinoids*
*alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA)*

Believe it or not, baths and showers can make dry skin worse. 

So remember:

Use warm rather than hot water
Limit your time in the shower/bath to 5 or 10 minutes
Close the bathroom door and let the steam sink in
Wash with a gentle, fragrance-free cleanser 
Avoid bath sponges, scrub brushes and washcloths
 (or at least use them very gently)
When toweling dry, don’t RUB. Pat or blot dry
Don’t overuse cleanser – use only enough to cleanse gently
Slather on moisturizer immediately after

HINT
Leave your face and body damp after washing —
this helps your moisturizer or lotion work better.

EXFOLIATE
Yes! You can use an exfoliator!
Dry skin is actually a layer of dead skin cells that builds up
and needs to be sloughed off. 

Theraderma Pineapple Enzyme Scrub

This amazing scrub can be used for all skin types but be sure to use it GENTLY! Extracts of pineapple, seaweed, chamomile papaya and jojoba leave your skin feeling unbelievably soft and moist.

TREAT IT RIGHT and YOUR ‘PROBLEM SKIN’
WILL NO LONGER BE A PROBLEM!

LIGHTEN, BRIGHTEN & TIGHTEN YOUR SKIN

 

Do you ever wake up, look at your face in the mirror, and think…

‘THIS IS NOT A GOOD DAY FOR MY FACE.”

Ask any woman and she will tell you, “My face has good days and bad days.”
What causes the skin to sometimes look dull and lifeless?? 

Consider these:

 ~ DEAD SKIN ~
The human body sheds skin daily, to be replaced by the new.
But here’s the downside: dead skin needs help being sloughed off
so that the fresh skin can be seen. Dead surface skin makes
for a
listless complexion.

~ ORAL CONTRACEPTIVES ~
The pill leaves you with pigmentation problems that
make your skin look muddy.

~ MENOPAUSE / HYPERTENSION MEDICATION ~
These affect skin the same way oral contraceptives do:
the ups and downs of hormones can leave you
with pigmentation problems.

BUT WHAT TO DO ABOUT IT?

First things first. Get rid of that dead skin!  In my over 25 years as an esthetician, I’ve found no mask/exfoliator that compares with VOLCANIC ORIGINS. Use IT ONCE and see a noticeable difference in your skin. That’s right. Once.

Volcanic Origins Face & Body Ash Mineral Clay Mud Mask 10 oz. size

There is no substitute for Mother Nature!  Volcanic Ash Clay  has been used for generations for its healing qualities, penetrating deeply to stimulate and tighten cell tissue – and pores – and remove bacteria. You will feel a slight tingling as it improves your skin’s circulation – and see a brighter, more vibrant skin after you rinse it off. Use regularly to maintain a beautiful, more revived You.

 

 

And now that you appreciate the value of exfoliating, here is a delightful change of pace for your exfoliating regime . . . It’s a scrub, not a mask.

Theraderma Lemon Sugar Exfoliator

Organic citrus … lemon and orange oils… coconut … avocado … carrot oil. Mmmmm – what’s not to like? Buff your skin with sugar particles to exfoliate dead skin cells. This is a gentle scrub that will clean as it exfoliates and seal in moisture. Your skin will feel silky smooth and look radiant!

 

 With dead cells washed away and bright new skin revealed, you are ready for . . .

Theraderma Alpha Brightener

This serum is ideal for non-sensitive skin with dark spots. It’s actually a moisturizer, exfoliator and dark spot lightener in one. Used after exfoliation, it will give you smoother and brighter skin.

Key ingredient is Alpha-Arbutin, which prevents production of melanin in the deep layers of the skin that  cause dark spots.

 

Whatever your skin type: normal-combination / dry-mature / oily-acne / delicate-sensitive — here’s the serum for you!

Vitamin C Serum

Ideal for all skin types. Because this formula rebuilds collagen cells, it rejuvenates your skin. In fact, C-Serum promotes collagen A powerful antioxidant that also fades dark patches.

Also contains Aloe Vera, amino acids, and a blend of organic citrus fruit concentrates.
