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!!”

ASK LINDA: Why Do I Need a Serum?

LINDA SAYS,

Cleansing, moisturizing and daytime sun protection is an OK general skincare routine. But as we age, our skin needs more.  Treating your skin with an anti-aging serum both day and night will keep the skin plump and more resilient.

For generations, it has been enough to clean, tone and moisturize our skin. But science never sleeps!  A revolutionary new kind of product has been developed and it getting rave reviews from satisfied users: THE SERUM.

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.

vitamin A,serum,skin lighteningTHERADERMA VITANOL A SERUM

This serum can be used by all skin types. I addition to Retinol, it contains Aloe Vera Gel, extracts of Chamomile and Calendula, lecithin and essential oils. Feed your skin while you sleep! You will see a brighter skin tone with continuous use as skin cells are rejuvenated.

 

 

 

 

Q – “WHAT CAN I USE FOR SUN-DAMAGED SKIN?”
A – Theraderma Vitamin C Serum helps reduce dark spots or a blotchy complexion. 

vitamin c,serumTHERADERMA VITAMIN C SERUM

This serum is ideal for all skin types: normal-combination, dry-mature, oily-acne and delicate-sensitive. It aids collagen production – collagen is the gel that holds skin tissues together and that we lose as we age. Contains L-ascorbic acid and a blend of organic citrus fruit concentrates, rich in vitamin C and amino acids

SCRUB — TREAT — HYDRATE

PREPARE YOUR SKIN

Even the best creams and lotions
will not be effective if
YOUR SKIN IS NOT PREPARED TO ABSORB  THEM!

Residual oil … dirt … air pollution … dirty hands (keep them off your face!) … and the effects of stress … are all a part of the day-to-day grind that takes a toll on our skin. A quick swipe at night with the ever-popular ‘cleansing towelette’ (which should only be used in a pinch) doesn’t begin to truly clean your skin (keep them for emergencies or in your purse for quick cleansing). 

Even so, skin that is cleansed properly every night needs a regular boost to keep it at its best.  

Learn how to PREP YOUR SKIN so that it’s ready to make the most of every single nutrient and drop of moisture!

 

F I R S T .  .  .

THERADERMA LEMON SUGAR EXFOLIATOR

Sounds good enough to eat, doesn’t it. But put it on your face instead!

This exfoliator will gently sluff off the grit & grime that builds up daily, as well as the dead skin we shed continually. No need to rub hard: let the sugar do the work for you. And let oils of citrus, lemon, avocado and coconut leave your skin brighter, cleaner and smoother. Use twice weekly.

A SERUM is a skin care product with the consistency of a gel or light lotion and a higher concentration of active ingredients than a traditional moisture cream.

You’ll feel this serum glide on and absorb instantly, leaving your skin feeling ultra smooth.  Vitamin C  aids in collagen production – we lose collagen as we age – and helps hold skin tissues together.  Its L-ascorbic acid helps reverse dark spots or a blotchy complexion.

 

 

 

 

 

T H I R D  .  .  . 

THERADERMA COLLAGEN ELASTIC CREAM

There is a simple reason this moisturizer is one of our most popular items: it works.

And as it moisturizes, it protects. Feels light but is oh so effective, leaving the skin nourished, moisturized, but never greasy. Can even be used as a night cream, because there’s no time that’s not the right time for Collagen Elastic Cream. Our own formula, incorporating Aloe Vera Gel, Safflower Oil,  Ginseng Extract, G Mango Butter, and Olive Butter.

FACE TIME

FACE TIME MEANS BEAUTIFYING TIME!

The term Face Time gets thrown around a lot these days. Yes, we primp and preen before our on-screen conversations. But what really makes us shine when we’re illuminated across the net?

IT’S NOT . . .

          …  the latest, trendiest eye shadow
          …  extra-long lashes
          …  the perfect blow-out


THERE IS NO SUBSTITUTE FOR FRESH, GLOWING SKIN

And there’s only one way to get it!  
Continuous, loving care and attention
DAY IN AND DAY OUT (and NIGHT, too)
to ensure your skin will be the best it can be.


** IT BEGINS WITH CLEANSING
It doesn’t much matter what products you put on your skin if its too clogged to absorb them.  And it must be done consistently:  in the morning and at night.


THERADERMA CHAMOMILE MILK CLEANSING CREAM

If your skin is dry/mature or sensitive/delicate, this one’s for you. Gently dissolving excess oils or the grit and grime of the day, it leaves the skin clear and ready to absorb either your nourishing night cream or daily moisturizer.  With Aloe Vera Gel, and Extracts of Chamomile Blossom, Elder Flower and Orange Peel. 

 

 


**DON’T FORGET TONING
This is a crucial stop in your skincare routine


THERADERMA ALOE CUCUMBER ASTRINGENT TONER

The perfect follow-up to the perfect cleansing, it gently tightens pores with Aloe Vera Gel, Cucumber Juice, Witch Hazel and Horse Chestnut extracts. 

 

 

 

**FEED YOUR SKIN

vitamin c,serumTHERADERMA VITAMIN C SERUM

Although lighter in texture than a cream, serums have a higher concentration of ingredients and are an excellent addition to your skincare routine. This serum is particularly good for dark spots or blotchy skin.

 

 


**PROTECT YOUR SKIN

THERADERMA SUN PROTECTIVE CREAM SPF 30

It’s no longer up for debate: we MUST protect our skin from the damaging effects of the sun. But we can moisturize at the same time! With Green tea Extract, Cocoa Butter and Aloe Barbadenis Leaf Juice. 

 

 


**NOURISH YOUR SKIN 

THERADERMA BIO EFFECTIVE CREAM

There is a reason this is the most popular product at HelloBeautifulFace.com. IT REPAIRS WHILE YOU SLEEP. Rich and packed with nourishment, including Aloe Vera Gel, Peach Kernel Oil, Ginseng Extract, Hazelnut Oil, Soy Milk Protein, Carrot Oi, Avocado Oil and Sea Buckthorn Oil.

HELP FOR PHOTODAMAGED SKIN

 

sun damage

TOO MANY YEARS IN THE SUN . . . NOW WHAT?
So many of you see changes in your skin as you grow older – changes you don’t
like. Chances are, you have photodamaged skin.

 

WHAT IS PHOTODAMAGED SKIN?
Photodamage is a type of premature aging that occurs over a long period of time from repeated exposure to UV Rays. It affects the COLOR as well as both the UPPER and INNER layers of the skin. Photodamage can occur anywhere on the body where there has been prolonged exposure to the sun.

SIGNS OF PHOTODAMAGED SKIN

Liver spots
Visible blood vessels
Sagging or loose skin

Redness and inflammation
Both fine and deep wrinkles
Abnormal, rough skin texture
Freckles or other spotty pigmentation
More sensitive skin, causing one to bruise easily

UV-A radiation, year in and year out, takes a toll on our skin.

THE BEST TREATMENT FOR PHOTODAMAGE IS PREVENTION“But what about those of us who spent half our lives in the sun??” you ask. “Is it too late for us?” While it’s true we can’t turn back the clock, there’s more we can do besides blame ourselves for those years of sunbathing.

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!

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!

Got Questions? Ask Linda

Ask Linda has been busy lately! You’ve been sending me lots of questions – good ones – so this month I’d like to share both the questions and my answers in the hopes that the information helps each and every one of you.

face hands

Ask LINDA:

How can I determine my skin type?

ANSWER:

There are countless factors that influence skin type including weather, heredity, age and health. Hellobeautifulface.com has a complete list of the 4 main skin types to help you identify your skin type. Remember that understanding your skin type is important for determining proper products to use in your skin care and makeup routine.

Ask LINDA:

How much time should I give each product to be absorbed? Example: When I use a skin treatment serum, a moisturizer and a foundation, can I put them on one after the other?

ANSWER:
Yes, you can put them on one after the other. A skin treatment serum like Vitamin C Serum absorbs very quickly into the skin. If you are using a creamy lotion skin treatment product like Theraderma Lifting Elixir wait about 15-20 seconds before applying moisturizer.

mask it

Ask LINDA:

I have dry skin, how often should I use a mask and what type of mask?

ANSWER:
I recommend using a mask at least once a week. Twice a week is even better. Do a mask at night before bed. The mask will hydrate your skin and prepare it for your night serum and/or cream. Masking before going out for a special dinner or party is excellent to revitalize your skin. Your makeup will look radiant. The Enspri Ultra Collagen Mask has very moisturizing, lifting and smoothing benefits. Volcanic Origins Ash Mineral Clay Mud Mask is another one of my top picks to moisturize and rejuvenate your dry skin.

Ask LINDA:

My foundation has a 30 SPF sunblock, is that good for the entire day – even if I take a walk at lunchtime? cell phone

ANSWER:
No. If you applied your foundation with sunblock in the morning before going to work or an appointment by lunchtime the sunblock SPF 30 has become ineffective. Carry your foundation with sunblock in your purse so you can reapply it before you go out for the walk at lunchtime plus wear a hat. I recommend Solar Protection Formula TiZo3 SPF 40 a tinted formulation that matches all skin tones and types. Elegant and silky, leaves a soft matte finish. For more makeup coverage try Solar Protection Tinted Formula SPF 60. An individually customizable protective liquid makeup/cover-up and daily foundation. Comes in 3 shades. Each shade may be individually customized to match your own skin tone using the light and/or dark color control adjusters included in each box.

eye

Ask LINDA:

After applying a moisturizer for day and for night my face feels greasy after 10 minutes, does that mean I used too much?

ANSWER:
Yes. There is a tendency to apply too much cream because we think “more is better” but not so when it comes to using a moisturizing cream. Be sure to do a thorough cleansing of your skin before applying day and night cream. Dot your cheeks, chin and forehead with cream, use finger tips to sprea d evenly over entire face and neckline. Those of you that are Oily-Acne skin types do not leave out this step. It is very important to use the proper moisturizer to keep a balance skin condition.
Facial toner

Ask LINDA: 

My acne treatment just isn’t working as well as it used to. What can you recommend?

ANSWER:

Your skin may have become accustomed to the formula. Look for formulas with higher concentrations of active ingredients such as: Glycolic Acid, Vitamin A, Vitamin C. These can be found in professional skincare brands like PCA Skin, Osmosis Pur Medical Skincare and Theraderma Skincare .

Ask LINDA:

I am confused when I see so many products at the cosmetic counters. I would like a simple homecare regimen with not too many steps. Help.

ANSWER:

Ok, let’s keep it simple. Here’s 3 Easy Steps for your morning and evening homecare for each skin type: Dry-Mature, Normal-Combination, Oily-Acne, Sensitive-Delicate.

1. CLEANSE

~ Morning cleansing/toning so you skin is fresh and clean to start your day.

~ Evening cleansing before bedtime to remove the day’s makeup, dust and pollution. Crucial for preparing skin for nighttime treatment and moisturizer.

2. TREAT

Repair your skin with an anti aging serum, gel or cream.

3. MOISTURIZE

Replenish your skin cells day and night. Daytime moisturizer must include a SPF 15 or higher to protect skin from the damaging rays of the sun. Nighttime moisturizer is a richer cream to rejuvenate the skin cells during your beauty sleep.

Victoria

Ask LINDA:

I would like to have permanent makeup eyeliner done but I am very nervous about it because it is done so close to my eyes. Can you help calm my nerves about the procedure?

ANSWER:

You can rest assured that the permanent makeup eyeliner procedure is very safe. The procedure begins with the application of numbing cream right along the upper eyelid lash line. Using the SofTap hand tool with extra fine tip needles, the pigment is placed into the skin right next to your eyelashes. With the eyelid skin stretched tight, the pigment penetrates quickly without any pain. All of my clients will ask me, “Are you doing it?” They cannot believe how painless and safe it is.

Ask LINDA:

I’m in my late 40s and have significantly damaged skin. I have never tried anti-aging products – is it too late to start? FACE POINTING AT HERSELF

ANSWER:

It is never too late to start. Your best bet are anti-aging products that contain:

  • Retinol-Vitamin A – improves skin’s firmness
  • Peptides – assist skin to retain moisture providing the skin with an immediate lifting effect
  • Alpha Hydroxy Acids – reduces fine lines by exfoliating the surface dead skin cells.

After a thorough cleaning of your skin follow with at least one of the above anti aging products. Next moisturize. During the day keep your skin protected from the UVA/UVB sun rays, apply a sun protection cream SPF 15 or higher.
