BAD HABITS – IT’S TIME TO STOP THEM!

SKINCARE 101

Sometimes it’s not enough to hear what we SHOULD do. Sometimes we need to hear what NOT to do. Take a look at these common bad habits and ask yourself, “Is it time for me to clean up my act?”

SKIMPING ON CLEANSING … 
The day-to-day effect on your skin from dirt, dust, pollution and oil really takes a toll, breaking down the surface of your complexion and contributing to the aging process. 

NEVER FORGET TO CLEANSE MY FACE
No matter how late it is
No matter how tired I am
No matter where I am
DO IT!

Theraderma Gentle Cleansing Gel

Don’t be without it! Put this gem in a small bottle for travel and for the gym so that wherever you are, you’re always ready and able to properly cleanse your skin.

Ingredients like Aloe Vera Gel, Extracts of Coltsfoot, Hops, Carrot, Rosemary Leaves, Sage Leaves and Fragrant Oil, keep your skin clean and supple. 

 

 

 

 

~ SKIMPING ON QUALITY
Please don’t let money be the bottom line when choosing your skincare products. And avoid those sale tables! Deep discounts mean the products are old. Educate yourself – at least a little – by knowing what to look for when you shop for cleanser, toner, moisturizer, mask and serum.  Choose products formulated for your skin type: dry / oily / combination / acne / aging. Yes, the ingredients of all skincare products include chemicals (they wouldn’t last on your shelf more than a week if they didn’t) but also look for natural ingredients like Aloe Vera Gel, vitamins, essential oils and natural herbs.

Theraderma Vitamin C Serum

Bring dull skin back to life by building new collagen cells. Formulated with the most stable and active form of vitamin C this serum contains Citrus extract, Aloe Vera Extract, Yarrow Flowers Extract, Orange Peel Extract and Lecithin.

 

~ SKIMPING ON SUNBLOCK
You’ve only got one face. Take care of it. And get ready for a newsflashThe sun is always shining. That’s right, it’s up there all day long, penetrating right through the clouds and your car windows. Wear SPF. Every. Single. Day.

This smooth and silky cream glides on and makes it quick and easy to apply. PROTECTS you from harmful rays and MOISTURIZES at the same time. With Camellia, Aloe Barbadenis Leaf Juice,  Green Tea Extract, and Cocoa Butter

 

 

~ SKIMPING ON SLEEP
Rest is essential if you want to maintain not only your health, but your complexion. The skin repairs itself while you sleep. Here’s how: your metabolism slows down at nighttime, so it’s the ideal time to let your moisturizing night cream sink in and do its work. So: a clean face, a clean pillow case, and your favorite night cream will pay off by a refreshed-looking face in the morning.

Keep your skin in perfect balance 24/7 with the ultimate in moisture. Remember: All skin types need a moisturizer in order to maintain balance

DAY:   Theraderma Collagen Elastin Cream 

Start the day out right by following your toner with a satisfying slather of this potion but light moisturizer.

 

NIGHT:  Theraderma Bio Effective Cream

Wake up with the softest skin! As your body rests, this yummy cream has plenty of time to sink into your pores and enrich your skin. FEEL the difference.

BRIGHTEN 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.

CLEAN SKIN FIGHTS AGING!

IT’S THE MOST BASIC OF SUBJECTS

CLEAN SKIN is healthy skin

CLEAN SKIN  absorbs moisture better

CLEAN SKIN  fights acne and blackheads

CLEAN SKIN  fights the ongoing deterioration called aging

SIMPLE RULES FOR CLEANLINESS ~

DON’T TOUCH YOUR FACE   Your fingers and hands are in contact with door knobs, dusty desktops, car doors, gas pumps, other people’s hands, dollar bills, coins, public restrooms . . . the list goes on. And don’t hold your cell phone against your face – it’s been everywhere from the bottom of your purse to a bathroom countertop.

WASH YOUR FACE BEFORE GOING TO BED  Remove the day’s dust, grit, oil and make-up that clog your pores.

CHANGE YOUR PILLOW SLIP EVERY FEW DAYS so your squeaky-clean face doesn’t nuzzle up with who-knows-what (dust / oil / drool – eek!) And even if you don’t make your bed each day, throw the sheet over your pillow so dust doesn’t settle on it.

KEEP YOUR MAKEUP BRUSHES CLEAN Dirty makeup brushes spread dirt and bacteria. This may lead to acne, breakouts, and pimples. Clean your brushes once a week using soap and water or a makeup brush cleaner.

CLEANSING IS A 2-STEP PROCESS. You’ve patted your clean skin dry but you’re not done yet. The proper toner is a must.  Why? To restore your skin’s PH balance and prepare it for your moisturizer or night cream. A toner will also refresh your skin, close your pores, and remove any last bits of dirt or make-up. Don’t skip this crucial step!

FIND THE RIGHT CLEANSER AND TONER FOR YOUR SKIN TYPE  . . .

THERADERMA ACTIVE CLEANSING GEL

and keep your skin as vibrant and youthful as possible!

AND THIS GOES FOR YOU GUYS TOO!

How To Keep Your Skin Smooth and Silky

“Treat your skin like you do your most expensive cashmere sweater – GENTLY.”

I’ll never forget these words. They were my very first lesson in skin care from an esthetician who visited my Home Economics class in high school. I only remember this one thing she said, but I’ve remembered it my entire life.

If you’d like your skin to not only look great but feel great, then this is very, very good adviceBy choosing the right products that do the work for you, there is never any need to be anything but gentle when you take care of your skin. That’s right: let the product itself do the work.

For the silkiest, smoothest and very best your skin can be, follow these three steps:

#1 The human body sheds skin continuously, but Theraderma has created a serum to give Mother Nature a little help .  .  .

THERADERMA SKIN REFINING
CONCENTRATE

Oh, so light, but oh, such an effective exfoliator!  Vitamins A, C and E make a potent combination to intensify your skin’s natural shedding process. New skin is beautiful skin, and bringing it to the surface not only enhances your complexion, but soothes sensitive skin and minimizes pores. 

Along with vitamins, this concentrate contains Aloe Vera Gel, purified sea water, extracts of Chamomile Calendula and Ginseng, and Yeast extract.

#2  After your Skin Refining Concentrate treatment, follow with your favorite Theraderma moisturizer.  Choose from:

 Bio Hydrating Cream  – best for normal to oily, even troubled skin.  

Plump up those skin cells by increasing hydration! With Hyaluronic Complex imported from Japan and Europe, as well as Collagen and Seaweed extracts. 

OR . . .

COLLAGEN ELASTIN CREAM – best for dry or mature skin.

.Nourishes – and protects – your skin in the daytime, with Hydrolyzed Elastin to improves skin’s elasticity and Marine Collagen to diminishes wrinkles and age lines. 

Feel the difference as this light cream glides on your skin!

 

#3. Protect your moisturizer from drying during the day with a breathable moisture barrier . . .

THERADERMA VITAL SILK SERUM – good even for sensitive skin

Hyaluronatic Acid,fine lines,wrinkles
This multi-vitamin facial treatment also contains sweet almond oil and carrot oil that join with minerals to seal in your skin’s own moisture without clogging your pores. Provides special protection from the grit and grime of the environment while still allowing your skin to breathe.

Watch and Feel your skin respond as this routine continues. And don’t be surprised if that special someone can’t keep his hands off your touchable face.

“My skin is so-o-o silky soft – I love it!!”

 

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.
