ASK LINDA – What you’ve been asking me lately . . .

 

Maybe some of these questions
have been on your mind, too .

Q.  When I’m in a hurry, I apply my serum, moisturizer and foundation one after the other. Should I be waiting a bit in-between applications?
A. YES. You should wait at least 30 seconds so that the skin can absorb each product . TIP: wet your fingers before applying both your serum and your moisturizer – this not only helps the skin absorb them but it makes the product go farther. Then, wait 30 seconds before applying your foundation.

Q. What do you recommend for mature skin as a good combination of serum and moisturizer?
A.  Vitamin C Serum and Collagen Elastin Cream not only feed your skin with nutrients, but make it smooth and soft. Take a look . . .

Theraderma Vitamin C Serum 

This serum glides on your skin and regenerates collagen cells and also aids sun-damaged skin.

Contains Citrus extract aqueous blend, Aloe Vera Extract, Yarrow Flowers Extract, and Orange Peel Extract

 

Theraderma Collagen Elastin Cream

IDEAL for dry-mature, sensitive-delicate skin conditions. Can also be used as a night cream for normal to combination skin types.

Contains  Aloe Vera Gel, Safflower Oil, Wheat Germ Oil, Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein, Mango Butter, Olive Butter, and Carrot Oil.

 

Q. Should I clean my skin both morning and evening?
A. NO. You only need to clean your skin at the end of the day to remove dirt, dust and make-up. When you wake up, just splash your face with water and then apply your toner, serum and moisturizer.

Q. Once I clean properly at night, what do you recommend as a night cream?
A. Bio -Effective Cream is – hands down – the product I get the most feedback about. It nourishes while it moisturizes and makes your skin feel absolutely wonderful when you wake.

A. You have a a normal combination skin type. I recommend  Bio Hydrating Cream.

IMMEDIATE HELP for LIPS and EYES

WHAT your EYES and LIPS are MISSING

Did you know that your EYES and your LIPS have something very important in common? Yes, they are the most expressive parts of your face. But here’s the important thing you need to know:

Our eyes and our lips do not have Sebaceous Glands, which are responsible for providing moisture to the skin.

Let’s look at the LIPS first.

 

LIPS  Without moisture-producing sebaceous glands, your lips are much more likely to be chapped if not moisturized adequately. The skin on your lips also doesn’t have hair follicles – which cover every external part of your body except the palms of your hands and the soles of your feet. These follicles protect your skin, and while their absence makes your lips softer, they leave them more vulnerable to sun, to dryness and to aging.

 

 

EYES   With no sebaceous glands, here is the first place we see visible signs of aging. The skin is delicate, thin and prone to dryness, and is sensitive to sunlight – which breaks down collagen – and even facial movement causes stress. Loss of fat and collagen also make the skin appear thinner and more translucent so that blood vessels under the eyes become more obvious and lead to dark circles. Moisturizing here is essential to keep ‘crow’s feet’ and ‘bags’ at bay.

LINDA ANSWERS YOUR QUESTIONS ABOUT SERUMS

Q – “WHAT IS A SERUM?”
A – serum  is a skin care product with the consistency of a gel or light lotion and with a higher concentration of active ingredients than a traditional moisture cream. The right serum will give your skin a smoother texture and help refine the size of your pores. 

 

Q – HOW IS A SERUM DIFFERENT THAN A MOISTURE CREAM?”
A –
A serum . . .
 . . .  does not replace a moisturizer but is meant to enhance it
. . .  
is meant to be used UNDER your moisturizer
. . .  
has molecules smaller than those in a moisturizer and so penetrates deeper
     A moisturizer . . .
. . .  is richer than a serum
. . .  creates a protective barrier on top of your skin, locking-in your serum’s potent ingredients          

 

Q – I AM 68 AND HAVE DRY SKIN. IT THERE A SERUM FOR ME?”
A – YES. Theraderma HA + Collagen Serum is perfect for dry, aging skin.

THERADERMA HA + COLLAGEN SERUM

This serum uses HA –  Hyaluronatic Acid – also called ‘sponge technology’ because it hydrates dry cells and ‘plumps them’ up, with tissues increasing in volume. Watch wrinkles fill in as continuous use results in continuous moisture and a smoother looking skin. Contains pure marine collagen.

 

 

 

Q – I’M ONLY 45 BUT STARTING TO NOTICE LINES. WHAT CAN I USE?
A – 
Theraderma Line Preventing Serum is ideal – especially because any skin type can use it, even sensitive.

THERADERMA LINE PREVENTING TREATMENT

So silky! This serum glides on and makes your skin feel so smooth. It increases cell renewal and oxygen intake as well, diminishing lines and wrinkles with continuous use. Aloe Vera Gel, essential oils and lecithin deliver the nutrition your skin craves.  Best of all, add a few drops to your moisturizer to increase its potency.

 

 

 

Q – “I AM A BIT OILY AND STILL ACNE-PRONE . . .”
A –  Theraderma Vitanol A Serum helps troubled skin and because it is Retinol and light-sensitive, is to be used at nighttime.
