Every where you turn there is a magazine or a commercial is busy suggesting you use this or that product.  Lets face it, we have a counter full of products that we don’t even use or know how to use. Let me share one little step in your skin routine that will blow you away.  Add a Face Serum!!!  A face serum is like the workhorse, there to improve the overall look of your complexion. They can make a difference between dull and radiant skin.  Here are 4 reasons to add a face serum to your skin care routine:

 

1.  You must understand the importance of serums

 

Serums are usually formulated with a higher concentration of active ingredients so that a few drops are sufficient to cover the entire face.  They are packed with turbo-charged ingredients designed to penetrate skin in a way  an everyday moisturizers can’t. The main reason that you should use a facial serum is to get added nutrients into deeper layers of your skin that a regular moisturizer is not able to reach. Each face serum may be aimed at solving a specific problem such as anti-aging, hydration, skin brightening, etc. To get the best results for your skin after cleansing, toning and moisturizing, add a face serum(just before moisturizing) to your daily skin care routine.

 

2.  Your serum should be working for you

 

Instead of being heavy like a moisturizer,  serums are light in weight using the extra space to pack in higher concentration of beneficial ingredients  and antioxidants that fight free radicals that damage the skin.  In essence serums are lightweight moisturizers that penetrate deeper to deliver active ingredients into your skin. You can’t have too many antioxidants in your skin care routine now can you?

 

3.  Don’t be afraid to add layers

 

A serum won’t replace your daytime or night time moisturizer, but they will be extra nourishment for your skin under your moisturizer.  When it comes to anti-aging and healthy skin that extra layer of protection will really pack a punch! Serums are simply an added step for those who are looking to go the extra mile in their daily skin care routines

 

4.  Try wearing it alone

 

A well-formulated serum may work well as a double-duty product that can be used as a stand-alone product for someone with oilier skin, or used under a moisturizer for someone with normal to dry skin.  It is important to use face serums at night, because UV rays and oxygen can cause them to oxidize.

Why Shea Butter

Why shea butter

Why Shea Butter

 

Shea butter is made from the nut of the karite that grows wild on the West coast of Africa. Shea butter is rich in vitamin A, E, and F which protect the skin from free radicals that damage the skin and help to prevent fine lines and wrinkles.  Shea butter also moisturizes dry, heat-damaged and over processed hair. It’s an enjoyable smooth moisturizer and a great humectant, which keeps things moist. Shea butter draws moisture into the hair and coats the shaft to make the hair soft, smooth and supple. Something so natural can be good for both the skin and hair.

4 Simple Steps To Slow Down The Signs Of Aging

 

It doesn’t matter who you are or whether you have a  professional career or stay at home mom the subject of anti-aging at some point in life becomes a topic of discussion for everyone.  Who doesn’t want look their best! When you look great you feel great and in return you exude more confidence.  There are both external and internal factors that can be played to slow down aging skin.  Yes, you can reboot your skin to look great, slow down or fix signs of aging.  Here are 4 simple steps to slow down the signs of aging:

 

1.  Cleanse, Tone and Moisturize daily.




You should use a cleanser formulated to treat your skin type. Be aware (creamy cleansers are best for dry skin & gel cleansers are best for oily skin).  Use a toner to balance the PH level of your skin and be sure your toner is alcohol free.  Moisturize! Moisturize! Moisturize! Hydrated skin is more resistant to aging.

 

2.  Sunblock, Sunblock and Sunblock
Wear sunscreen daily(use a minimum of SPF 15).  The most important thing that you can do for your skin is to protect it against UV rays.   Nothing ages skin faster than sun damage. SPF in your makeup is not enough.

 

3.  Exfoliate
Sloughing away dead skin cells makes the skin feel silkier and look brighter.  Using a resurfacing process that sloughs dead skin cells will diminish signs of aging, encouraging a smoother younger looking skin, so that the moisturizers and anti-agers you use afterward will be more effective.

 

4.  Healthier Eating. 
Have you  heard it said that you are the food that you eat!  According to Dr. Perricone, you can decrease the signs of aging by eating an anti-inflammatory diet, fresh fruits , vegetables and cold water fish. Be sure to stay away from sugar and starch they raise the blood sugar level which could lead to inflammation in the skin, which could lead to wrinkles.  The rule of thumb is:  More of what is good and less of what is not.
