Is rosacea leaving skin sensitive? Shake things up with powder cleansers

Powdered cleansers – like mineral makeups – use lightweight and finely ground ingredients to transformative effects. With just a drop of water, they create a smooth paste that acts as a gentle cleanser and exfoliant. While good for all skin types, powdered cleansers are especially effective for those with rosacea, as their fine texture and mix of minerals, botanicals, and enzymes can soothe as well as clean the skin.

Ceramide can help you fall in love with autumn skin

If your skin gets dry and itchy when fall approaches, try looking for a product with a little extra protection. Ceramide is a type of natural fat that your skin uses to seal in water. When applied to your skin, they are absorbed quickly, reinforcing the natural moisture barrier. So try a moisturizer enhanced with ceramide, and we guarantee you’ll fall in love with the instant glow.

Want soft skin without the breakouts? It’s time to ditch the masks

If you’re over 30 and still using drying anti-oil masks in your beauty routine, it might be time to pause for some serious reflection. While they may have worked in your teenage years, these masks might be too harsh for adult skin, which may overdry and break out. Keep skin soft and radiant with exfoliation instead, or use masks that ADD hydration instead of removing it.

Science




Dry skin and inflammation

There's a scientific connection between why the cold exacerbates redness and inflammation. During times of low humidity (such as the winter months, or in dry climates), the skin may crack deeply due to lack of moisture. This disrupts dermal capillaries, and bleeding may occur—which is not visible, as it happens on a microscopic level.Read More >

Break the winter dry spell with this quick skincare tip

We have moisturizers in our medicine cabinets, and small tubes of lotion in our purses, but for many of us, the majority of our day is spent at our desks, without an easily-accessible moisturizer. While that works during humid, warm weather, the winter months can suddenly leave us with dry elbows and chapped knees. Always be prepared by storing a small, multi-purpose ointment like Aquaphor in your top drawer.Read More >

Anatomy of dry skin

As the temperature drops, many individuals notice their skin has begun to look dry, scaly, and dull. For some, dry skin presents as mild dryness, and for others as severe eczema. But this year-round condition isn’t the result of the cold—it’s a multifactorial entity that can be caused by endogenous (inside the body) or exogenous (outside of the body) sources. These can include weather, aging, irritating soaps, and certain diseases.Read More >

Beautiful skin you won’t want to mask

If the skin on your body is prone to blemishes, bumps, or dry spots, consider a body mask to help your skin become more radiant. There are a few ingredients to look out for: kaolin clay fights oil, lactic acid smooths the surface of the skin, and natural oils are a great source of hydration. For dry patches or other trouble spot treatments, apply the mask to the area, then cover with a warm, damp towel for 5 minutes before washing it off.Read More >
