Benefits of Retinol

Posted by Colleen Rothschild on

Benefits of Retinol  

For years, new anti-aging products have been introduced on the market however nothing has been able to outlast or show longer lasting results than those with the ingredient Retinol. Why is this? The plain and simple answer is…because it works!

I like to think of Retinol as tried-and-true when it comes to effective anti-aging. It is, and continues to be, one of the most powerful and popular anti-aging ingredients that you can use to help transform your skin. It works to help minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, clear pores and improve dull skin, resulting in a brighter looking complexion.

We are often asked, “What age should I start using a Retinol product?”

The answer is that it’s never too early to start using anti-aging skincare. If you are in your 20’s start using it now to help prevent, if you are in your 30-40’s, use it to halt the signs of aging, and 50’s plus, use it to reverse the signs of aging.

So what makes our Retinol Supreme Night Oil different from other products containing retinol? Not only does it contain the maximum amount of retinol you can use without a prescription, but we also use a Proprietary Delivery System called Level E3, which takes our products to a whole new level. Level E3 is responsible for transporting active ingredients to targeted areas. It also extends the efficiency and efficacy of all ingredients, giving you the best results possible. These factors are the reason why customers often refer to our Retinol Treatment Complex as their “holy grail.”

How and When to Use:

Your skin is most receptive to renewal at night, so the best time to use your Retinol Treatment is in the evening. Apply dime size amount, evenly to skin, wait one minute for absorption, then follow with a moisturizer such as our Sheer Renewal Cream or Extreme Recovery Cream. If excessive dryness or redness occurs, reduce use to every other day. Don’t forget to protect your skin throughout the day and use a sunscreen of SPF 15 or higher, like our Daily Defense SPF.

Have questions about Retinol or your skincare routine in general? Ask me below or send me an email. I look forward to hearing from you!

The Truth Behind Face Oils

Posted by Colleen Rothschild on

The Truth Behind Face Oils   Face oils can be overwhelming and daunting, especially to those with oily, breakout prone skin. If you’re not yet familiar with skincare’s best-kept secret, we’ll help you understand the facts behind facial oils.

Fact #1

Your skin needs its natural oils to keep lubricated and protected. If we strip the oil away, the skin will produce more oil to compensate, resulting in imbalances and causing breakouts. So you can fight oil with oil, by managing pore-clogging sebum resulting in clear skin.

Fact #2

Far from greasy, Face Oils are the surest way to glowing looking skin without the shine! A good face oil sinks right into the skin and delivers moisture and radiance without the residue.

Fact #3

Face oils can curb the signs of aging. These antioxidant powerhouses deeply nourish thirsty skin with an intense moisture boost, leaving your complexion smooth and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Fact #4

Good base oils such as Black Seed and Omega 3, 6 & 9, provide antioxidant protection and intense moisturization. Moringa and Marula oils restore luminosity and balances your complexion.

Fact #5

Face Oils can be worn alone or layered with your favorite moisturizer. They can also be used both morning and night, but we like to use our Face Oil No.9 in the evening when your skin is most receptive to renewal.

Fact #6

Oils can be true multitaskers and can be used all over the face, eyes, body, hair and even your nails. We like to add a drop to the ends of our hair for silkier strands!
