Tag Archives: dark circles


Whether waiting for that special kiss or just trying to look your best, your lips are always front and center. Taking good care of them is a MUST, so let’s start with the basics:

  • the skin on your lips is much thinner than any other place on your body
  • your lips don’t have any sebaceous glands — the glands that keep your skin moisturized. Their only source of moisture is your saliva, and that’s why your lips can easily become dry and chapped  
  • your lips don’t have melanin – your body’s natural way of protecting your skin from ultraviolet rays and the pigment that makes you tan in the sun.

What all this means is that our lips must be PROTECTED, MOISTURIZED, and treated with TLC – Tender Loving Care.

For the ULTIMATE in LIP CARE . .  .  .

1.  Exfoliate

2.  Plump

3. Protect


Volcanic Origins Under Eyes & Lip Contouring Mask 2 oz.

See immediate results! If you have used our Volcanic face and body masque, then you know how effective volcanic clay is as it smoothes, tightens and firms the delicate lip skin. You can also apply under the eyes to smooth fine lines and wrinkles. With Hemp Seed Oil and Grapeseed oil, it also reduces inflammation and dark circles. Use 1-2 times a week and watch your lips and under-eye area improve

#2 — PLUMP

Starry Sexy Kiss Lip Plumper/Gloss

Plump and shine with one easy application! Menthol, peppermint and other mint oils make this gloss feel so cool and yummy while stimulating blood circulation and reducing the appearance of fine lines. This gloss will enhance your chosen lip color and is paraben free, so slather it on!!


TIZO Tinted SPF 45 Lip Protection

Because your lips have no natural protection from the sun, they can develop sunspots and skin cancer just like the rest of your body. TIZO’s lightly tinted color provides full protection from UVA/UVB sun rays with 80-minutes worth of water resistant application. This lip color is a chemical free sunscreen that has no dyes, fragrances, lanolin or parabens.

‘SUPERFOOD’ seems to be the newest buzzword these days. But is there such a thing? And if so, what does it really mean?

A SUPERFOOD is simply a food that is not only nutritious but beneficial for the body in ways we can see. For example, avocado contains Vitamin E, which helps your immune system. But Vitamin E also boosts your skin‘s moisture and elasticity.

A HEALTHY DIET filled with fresh fruits and vegetables is a MUST. But what about the skincare products we use?

THERADERMA has been bringing you ‘superfoods’ since long before the word was even coined. Let’s take a look:

Theraderma Allow Cucumber Astringent

Finishing your cleansing with this on a cotton ball gives you more than just a clean face. Aloe Vera Gel, Cucumber Juice, and Witch Hazel and Horse Chestnut Extracts deliver nutrition that leaves your skin healthier. Cucumber is especially helpful for acne and dark circles under the eyes.


Theraderma Lemon Sugar Exfoliator

Revitalize your skin with this organic citrus lemon and orange oil exfoliator. But there’s more: coconut, avocado and carrot oils make sure that after the dead skin is sluffed away, what’s left underneath is silky smooth and healthy! 



After exfoliating, enrich your skin with the benefits of Olives, Almonds, and Avocado! Olives have been touted as helpful in reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease as well as lowering blood pressure. But they are also antioxidants and their oil is  super-soothing for the skin.




green tea,body cream,smooth skinTheraderma Green Tea, Soy Milk and Honey Homecare System

Let Mother Nature treat you to this winning combination of Body Scrub, Body Cleanser, Body Cream and Seaweed Oil that will leave your entire body delectably soft! GREEN TEA contains anti-aging and antioxidant benefits that can help delay sagging skin, sun damage,  fine lines and wrinkles. SOY MILK helps hydrate and strengthen skin cells as well as prevent acne. HONEY is a natural healer, anti-bacterial and is loaded with vitamins and minerals.

Today, let’s look at three specific areas you’ve been writing me about lately and then find some remedies:

BROWN SPOTS       *        LARGE PORES        *          DARK CIRCLES and PUFFINESS

Brown Spots – also known as Age Spots – are the result of an excess production of melanin, or skin pigment. Doctors don’t always know why age spots develop. Skin aging, sun exposure, or other forms of ultraviolet (UV) light exposure, such as tanning beds, are all possible causes. 

Theraderma Alpha Brightener

This serum is ideal for all non -sensitive skin types and lightens dark spots, including freckles and pigmented scars. But that’s not all: this serum also not only moisturizes, but exfoliates.  

Contains Aloe Vera Gel, (Daisy) Flower Extract, Poria Cocos Extract, Annatto Extract, Citric Acid. 


Theraderma Sun Protective Cream SPF 30 

Moisturize and Protect your skin with one cream.  Its sun filters prevent sun spots by protecting your skin against UVA and UVB rays, SPF 30.

Contains Cocoa Butter and Glycerin, Camellia Sinensis, Green Tea Extract, Allantoin and Aloe Vera.



Some people are blessed with tiny pores. The rest of us spend our lives trying to shrink them. But regardless of your genetics, one thing is certain:  when oil and dirt collect in your skin, your skin swells and your pores look larger than they normally do. The remedy:  DEEP CLEANSING.

YES – this same mask that helps diminish brown spots also SHRINKS YOUR PORES.

Volcanic Origins Face & Body Ash Mineral Clay Mud Mask 10 oz. siz

Ash clay particles penetrate deep to clean, tighten and REDUCE the size of your pores. Results can be seen immediately and when done 1-2 times a week skin becomes smoother, brighter and firmer.



eucalytus astringentTheraderma Eucalyptus Astringent Toner

Used in conjunction with the Volcanic Mask, this toner finishes your cleansing, closing the pores and and pH balancing your skin.  

Glycolic Acid, Sodium Glycolate (15%), Lactic Acid, Eucalyptus Extract and Salicylic Acid work together to close pores and remove any residue from your mask’s exfoliation.  Prepares your skin for your favorite daytime moisturizer or night cream.




Good to know: not enough sleep results in dark circles under the eyes, causing the skin to become paler (thus increasing the appearance of darkness under the eyes), and reduces circulation. To ensure your eyes get a complete rest, be sure to remove all eye makeup before bed.

OTHER CAUSES INCLUDE: allergies and nasal congestion (both treatable with over the counter mediations) and your diet. EAT HEALTHY!  And drink LOTS OF WATER. Do you smoke? Smoking restricts the flow of blood and oxygen. You can improve both your health and your appearance by deciding to reduce or even quit this habit.


vitamin c,eye creamTheraderma Micro Silk C Eye Cream

Designed especially for the delicate skin under the eyes, this silly, creamy formula soothes and heals and helps diminish dark circles and puffiness.

Contains  Aloe Vera Gel, Shea Butter, Safflower Oil, Olive Oil, Peach Kernel Oil, Hazelnut Oil, Extracts of Ginseng, Arnica, and Calendula.

A Mud Mask with IMMEDIATE Results



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.

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!
