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  . . .

AND THIS GOES FOR YOU GUYS TOO!

SKIN CARE for the 21st CENTURY MAN

REAL MEN TAKE CARE OF THEIR SKIN!

Back in the 80’s, “Real Men Eat Quiche” was all the rage. Since then, we’ve come a long way. Forget fads. Real men want to look good as they age, just like the rest of us!

Let’s talk about skincare for today’s man.

IS A MAN’S SKIN DIFFERENT THAN A WOMEN’S?  The short answer is Yes. Thicker, rougher and with more collagen. Men also sweat more, which helps keep the skin hydrated. But aging takes its toll and means that the smart man takes care of his skin so that he looks as young as possible for as long a possible.

DO MEN HAVE TO USE DIFFERENT PRODUCTS? There are essential steps to skin care that are the same whether you’re a man or a woman. But we have choices for each step.

Here are my recommendations for MEN:

 

CLEANSING ~

THERADERMA CAMPHOR SOUFFLÉ OILY-ACNE CLEANSER

This cleanser appeals to the no-nonsense man who likes to keep things simple:
–  wet hands
–  take a dime’s worth of cleanser
–  ‘wash’ all the grit of the day away.

Camphor, clove oil and herbal extracts flush out  pores, leaving the face clean as a whistle – but not tight and dry. Best of all, this cleaner can be used as a shaving cream because it disinfects hair follicles.

 

 

 

TONING ~

THERADERMA EUCALYPTUS ASTRINGENT TONER

Toning is an essential part of any skin care routine because it exfoliates surface dead skin cells and balances the skin’s pH level. The key ingredient here is eucalyptus, which is an antiviral, antibacterial, antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory and antifungal oil. Its antiseptic properties make it particularly soothing and healing for shaving cuts or blemishes. 

 

 

 

 

TREATING ~

THERADERMA GLYCOLIC TREATMENT GEL

This oil-free gel with Glycolic Acid gives just-shaved skin the VIP treatment and prepares the pores to drink in moisture. Your significant other will see  – and feel – the difference in the smoothness of your skin.

 

 

 

 

 

Clean you can feel . . .

 

MOISTURIZING ~
for Normal-to-Oily, Blemished, and Problem skin

THERADERMA VITAMIN B CREAM

Helps acne-prone skin with Vitamin B, which regulates oil gland secretion. This means fewer clogged pores, fewer breakouts ,and overall smoother skin.

 

 

 

 

 

REGULAR, DAILY CARE
It makes all the difference

IMPROVE YOUR APPEARANCE NOW
and
KEEP LOOKING GOOD THROUGH THE YEARS!

It couldn’t be easier!

 

 

 

 

A Mud Mask with IMMEDIATE Results

SEE THE DIFFERENCE .  .  . now.

 

In this era of instant gratification, we have become impatient … standing at the microwave for our 7-minute entrees and wondering what’s taking so long … carrying our cellphones everywhere so we don’t miss a call … and complaining when our text messages aren’t returned, like — now!!

Likewisewhen we try a new skincare product, we look for a change right away.  We examine ourselves in the mirror repeatedly and have to remind ourselves that, “Change takes time”. And most of the time, this adage is true.  But get ready for an ancient remedy that shows instant results.

Volcanic Origins Face & Body Ash Mineral Clay Mud Mask

150 million years is a long time, but this is how far back you need to go to find the origin of volcanic mud and clay.  Even animals used this healing substance (by lying in it when injured) and we humans are catching up!

Apply a thin layer onto your face and you will feel a tingle and a pulling action as your skin is stimulated by this mask cleaning out pores, drawing out excess oil and increasing circulation. Wait 15-20 minutes (longer is ok), then rinse off with warm water using a washcloth to wipe off residue mask. 1-2 times a week is best.

Going to a special dinner party? Do a mask when getting ready. Your makeup will look like it was professionally done now that your skin is tighter, brighter and smoother. 

Good for all skin types – for both men and women. This mask pulls the toxins out of the skin for oily acne. For dry mature skin, it tightens and brightens the skin.

When you exfoliate, your anti-aging serums and moisturizers penetrate deeper and more easily so that they can do a better job of nourishing the skin cells. Without weekly exfoliation, the dead skin cells build up and cause a barrier on the surface of the skin.

Look in the mirror when you rinse off this mask and you will see a ‘glow’ and see tightened pores and smoother skin. And this is why when you apply Volcanic Origins to your body, you will feel relief

“But what about the delicate skin on my lips and around my eyes?”
Not to worry: Volcanic Origins has developed a mask for those areas as well. 

Volcanic Origins Under Eyes & Lip Contouring Mask

 

Adding Hemp Seed Oil for the delicate areas of the face, this volcanic clay mud mask gently stimulates the skin on your lips and underneath your eyes.  And Grapeseed Oil reduces inflammation and dark circles and leaves skin smoother.

 

 

 

 

TAKE A BREAK.
LIE BACK AND RELAX.
AND LET VOLCANIC ORIGINS MASKS DO THEIR WORK
and leave you
REFRESHED and BEAUTIFUL!

 

 

 

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.

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!
