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

DAILY CLEANSER
DAILY TONER
DAILY MOISTURIZER

STEP ONE — DAILY CLEANSER

THERADERMA CAMPHOR SOUFFLÉ CLEANSER

More than just a cleanser to remove make-up, Camphor Souffle Cleanser lifts oil, dead skin cells and bacteria without dying out your skin and stimulating oil glands. Aloe Vera Gel makes it gentle enough even for acne, and Camphor, Clove oil and five different herbal extracts – Ivy, Watercress, Lime Tree, Lavender and Soap Wort – make this a thorough cleanser.

 

 

 

 

STEP TWO — DAILY TONER

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’!!

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!

THIS IS NO TRICK . . . it’s all treat!

If you’re concerned about . . .

fine lines …  age spots …  freckles … rough skin … acne ….

Get into the spirit of the season with Pumpkin Enzyme Puree  by Theraderma.

No, you don’t serve it after the turkey with whipped cream on top! And it won’t add unwanted calories, either. You’ll see its benefits long after the first delightful sniff!

exfoliate,dry skin,oily,acne

Exfoliation is all about helping nature produce new and healthy skin cells, and that’s where this potent puree comes into play. Pumpkin Enzyme Puree is a rich exfoliating treatment full of vitamins, amino acids, and enzymes known for their anti-oxidant and exfoliating properties.

The pumpkin boasts the antioxidant beta-carotene. The same free-radical-neutralizing powers of the carotenoids in pumpkin that may discourage cancer cells can also help diminish wrinkles. Extracts of Chamomile, Ginseng, Cucumber, and Ginkgo Biloba insure that this puree gives you a gentle yet effective treatment. Ideal for normal, combination, dry, oily and acne prone skin types. (Note: not to be used on sensitive or irritated skin.)

GOOD TO KNOW
A cup of cooked pumpkin has more potassium than a banana –
with 564 milligrams to a banana’s 422!

Pumpkin Enzyme Puree is EASY TO USE –  After your normal cleansing and toning, apply a small amount – a thin layer – to your clean, damp face. Allow it to remain on the skin:

~  up to 8 minutes for Normal/combination or Dry/mature skin
~  up to 15 minutes for oily and problem skin

Gently remove all residue with a wet wash cloth and then rinse thoroughly. Caution: Moderate stinging may occur – this is common. If skin becomes irritated, wash off immediately with warm water.

PLEASE NOTE: Always test a new product on small area before use on entire face. Use this puree only as directed, and not on sensitive or irritated skin. Do not use on Rosacea, open sores or other skin ailments. Do not use during or right after chemical peeling. Avoid contact with eyes and mucous membranes.

Now that your skin is smooth and clear of all debris, it is important to follow with this crucial next step: Hydrating your skin with the proper moisturizer.

Oily/Acne skin                        Theraderma Vitamin B Cream

Dry/Mature skin                     Theraderma Collagen Elastin Cream

Normal/Combination skin     Theraderma Bio Hydrating Cream

Be sure to enjoy the upcoming Season ~ and especially your improved complexion!

~ You can trust Theraderma ~

Based upon over 30 years of cosmetic research, Theraderma Skincare products are formula-ted with the highest level of non-prescription pharmaceutical grade ingredients. Instead of abrasive alcohol or unnecessary fragrances, Theraderma products contain soothing, healing Aloe Vera – to give you fast results without irritation – as well as vitamins and natural fruit acids to rebuild and refine your skin so that it glows. Best of all, it includes a personalized regimen that’s designed just for you, monitored by licensed professional, Linda Hong, Clinical Skincare Specialist.

IS YOUR SKIN ALL YOU’D LIKE IT TO BE?

anti aging,skincare, wrinklesDon’t make the mistake of putting more attention on the latest hairstyle and hot makeup tips than you do on basic skin care. We all want a glowing complexion! With the emphasis on cleansers and moisturizers – and without a doubt, they are vital skin care steps – let’s not forget that even the best of them need to be coupled with their essential partner: TONER.

 WHAT DOES TONER DO?  Toner removes any traces of oil or makeup missed during cleansing. It also soothes, smooths and even helps repair the surface of your skin, diminishing blemishes and minimizing redness and inflammation. Not only that – and this is crucial – toner balances your Acid Mantle.

WHAT IS THE ACID MANTLE?  Simply put, the Acid Mantle is a film of amino/lactic acids and oils protecting your skin from bacteria, dirt and other environmental pollutants that contribute to premature aging and irritation.

BUT I HAVE DRY SKIN – ISN’T TONER ONLY FOR OILY SKIN?  Toner is for ALL skin types! Just make sure you choose an alcohol-free toner and if you have sensitive skin, there are toners made just for you.

Theraderma Skincare once again turns to Mother Nature for ingredients to incorporate into the best, most effective toners for your skin:

EUCALYPTUS —– GINSENG —– CUCUMBER —–

Each of these miracles of nature has its own special qualities. Which one is ideal for you depends on your Skin Type

DRY or SENSITIVE SKIN

 ACCUCUMBER

 The CUCUMBER isn’t just for salads and gazpacho anymore. It’s even making its mark in Margaritas!  But today we find it in skin care – and for good reasons. This fruit – that’s right, it’s a fruit – is chock-full of water, plus Vitamins C & K, Magnesium, Potassium and even Protein.

THERADERMA ALOE CUCUMBER ASTRINGENT TONER  iTs an alcohol-free, calming astringent toner that tightens pores and smooths the appearance of your dry or sensitive skin to give it a finer, softer texture.

 

OILY and BLEMISHED, ACNE-PRONE SKIN

ETEUCALYPTUS

EUCALYPTUS is familiar to all of us as the perfect remedy when we have a cold or cough …. ahhh that wonderful, bracing scent!  But eucalyptus oil is also known for its anti-bacterial properties.

THERADERMA EUCALYPTUS ASTRINGENT TONER has a combination of ingredients formulated to keep your pores smooth, clean and healthy by exfoliating surface dead skin cells and balancing the skin’s ph level.

 

 

NORMAL-COMBINATION / DRY MATURE / OILY-ACNE SKIN

GTGINSENG

GINSENG has ancient roots in health care and today is known to boost the immune system, fight infections and is used to improve concentration, memory and physical endurance. Even a cup of Ginseng tea is recommended for its naturally occurring chemicals that are present in the root. But what about our skin?

THERADERMA GINSENG ASTRINGENT TONER is ideal for many skin types because it removes surface dead skin cells to clean deep into the pores to remove residue dirt, makeup and bacteria with its oil-free formulation of Glycolic acid. 

 

Whichever toner you choose . . ….  Enjoy its subtle scent as your cotton ball glides over your skin to give your cleansing routine the finishing touch …. refreshed and ready for your serum and moisturizer. Feel confident, knowing you are giving your skin the very best Theraderma has to offer!

 

Get BRIGHTER SKIN at EVERY AGE

Get Brighter Skin…..20’s Start Early:

Your face is still taut, but that doesn’t mean you’re not noticing pigmentation which can reveal itself in freckles, post acne marks, or melasma due to pregnancy or oral contraceptives. I recommend for your home skincare routine products with Vitamin C as the key ingredient and always wear sun protection during the day even if it’s a cloudy day. My customer product picks: Theraderma Vital Silk C Serum – Provides an invisible shield to protect the skin from damage caused by the environment. Theraderma Sun Protection Cream SPF 30 – Moisturize and protect your skin from sun damage all in one cream.



Get Brighter Skin…..30’s Don’t Stress:

Hyperpigmentation is often stress related – constant hurrying and worrying (your kids, your job, your hectic schedule) are often the culprits. And habits like picking pimples or scratching can also cause brown spots. Best to target trouble areas with a skin lightening ingredient like  Vitamin A. My customer product picks: Theraderma Vitamin C Serum – This antioxidant fades patchy dark pigmentation and protects the skin from sun damage and premature aging.


Get Brighter Skin…..40’s Reverse Damage:

By this age, many women are off the pill and finished having kids, so the wild fluctuation of hormones and melasma are under control. In this decade, choose all-over brighteners to even skin tone and break down unwanted pigment. My customer product pick: Theraderma Skin Refining Concentrate.  This powerful complex of Vitamin A, C, E refines pores and promotes a more even skin tone.


Get Brighter Skin…..50’s Go For The Glow:

Menopause affects the skin the way oral contraceptives do: the ups and downs of hormones can leave you with pigmentation problems. Since skin can also become dry and sensitive and appear dull at this stage, look for products containing arbutin, licorice, and antioxidants, which help halt excess melanin production and promote radiance. My customer product pick: Theraderma 24 Karat Gold Suspension Serum. Another reminder keep sunblock on all day.


Get Brighter Skin…..60’s Be Gentle:

At this point, women are at a higher risk for discoloration if they take anti hypertension medication, which can heighten sun sensitivity, or estrogen, which has the same skin dangers as the Pill. So be extra vigilant about applying sunscreen during the day along with soothing anti aging brighteners.  My customer product pick: Theraderma Instant Oxygen Revival Mask.  Revives dull, tired skin leaving it clean, soothed, glowing and refreshed.


Tips For Best Results for All Ages Using Skin Lightening products………..

Get Brighter Skin Tip #1:

Prepare your skin before applying a skin lightening serum or cream by exfoliating (remove surface dead skin cells) at least twice a week. This will allow the skin lightening serum or cream to penetrate deeper and be more effective. Product Pick: Volcanic Origins Face & Body Ash Mineral Clay Mud Mask.


Get Brighter Skin Tip #2:

The most important skincare part of skin lightening is to always wear sunblock during the day even if it is overcast. Without sunblock you will be wasting your efforts using a skin lightener.

Do brown blotches mar your otherwise nice complexion? Hyperpigmentation (brown blotches, dark spots) affects everyone, regardless of age, skin type, or color, and is caused by acne, sun exposure and/or hormones. But don’t despair…..help is on the way! Here are the best solutions for every age on how to prevent and repair its effects:
