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!!”

LINDA SAYS: 

Before putting a new product on SENSITIVE skin, do the following:

~   Apply a small amount behind an ear and leave overnight.
~  If your skin shows no irritation, then try a small amount next to your eye.
~  If you still see no irritation, this product is safe for you to use.

PLEASE NOTE:

For those of you who suffer from Eczema (scaly, rough patches on the skin) or Rosacea (blushing and flushing, sometimes with tiny red pimples), check with your physician before starting a new skin care regime..  

Let’s take the basic steps of Daily Skin Care and see what Theraderma has to offer for Sensitive Skin.

CLEANSING . . .

Theraderma Camomile Milk Cleansing Cream

Deodorant soap or highly fragranced soaps contain strong detergents and should not be used on the face. Theraderma Camomile Milk Cleansing Cream does everything a skin cleanser should do EXCEPT dry or irritate. Aloe Vera Gel, Camomile Blossom, and extracts of Cucumber, Elder Flower and Orange Peel help rejuvenate your skin, leaving it fresh and clean. This cleanser can be used with or without water. 

 

 

 

 

TONING . . .

Theraderma Aloe Cucumber
Astringent Toner

This toner is ACOHOL FREE, so no harshness or drying. It tightens pores even as it calms the skin, restoring its PH balance and preparing it for moisturizing.

Cucumber Juice, Witch Hazel, and extracts of Horse Chestnut and Ginseng stimulate pores without irritating sensitive skin.

 

 

 

 

MOISTURIZING . . .

Theraderma Bio Hydrating
Cream 

You will see a visible difference after applying this gentle but potent hydrating day cream. Collagen and Seaweed extract are joined with Sodium PCA and Hyaluronic Complex to soothe as well as moisturize thirsty skin

 

 

 

SEE — AND FEEL — THE DIFFERENCE!

“I love Theraderma!”

 

 

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

STEP TWO — DAILY TONER

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!

ASK LINDA: HOW to MINIMIZE FINE LINES and WRINKLES

anti aging,skincare

Many of my clients have been hearing about a new ingredient called ARGIRELINE. 

“I hear this is a miracle worker,” they tell me. “But is it really as good as they say?”

Argireline is being compared to Botox – called Topical Botox, because unlike Botox, Argireline is not delivered through a needle, but through creams and serums.

But what is it?

 

Here are the facts:

In order for a muscle to move, three proteins need to work together. Argireline – the trade name for an ingredient called acetyl hexapeptide – mimics one of these proteins that makes a muscle move – or not move. The less movement, the fewer wrinkles. So far, Argireline has been getting very good reviews.

Let’s take a look at a few serums that contain Argirelene…………..

 

THERADERMA LIFTING ELIXIR

If you are beginning to see the appearance of fine lines  and wrinkles – particularly around the upper lips, eyes and forehead – this serum is for you!

You will love the feel of Theraderma Lifting Elixir – like satin going on! And its ingredients provide vital benefits: after soothing Aloe Vera, you will see Argireline listed second. Next is Ginseng to firm and tighten, and then Seaweed to lift.

 

PCA SKIN EXLINEA PEPTIDE SMOOTHING SERUM

For dry skin or oily … young or old.

This serum helps diminish your fine lines and wrinkles.  Argireline is joined here by Hyaluronic acid – which replenishes moisture – and together they lift and smooth, aided by that time-honored, skin-healing medicinal plant, Witch Hazel. 

 

ENVIRON IONZYME FOCUS FROWN SERUM

Ideal for all types of skin – even delicate/sensitive skin.

This is where Argireline shines, as it relaxes muscle activity to minimize and prevent wrinkles and lines. 

Like Botox – but without the invasive procedure – you will see similar results.

 

 

Any product needs to be tried, tested, and then it’s up to each of us to decide if it works for us. Some users report that while Argireline does not make existing wrinkles go away, it does stop new ones from appearing.  TRY IT AND SEE!

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!
