Oily/combination skinned clients always ask me what they can do to control their oil production. I always recommend the Pure Cleansing Gel; the first step to controlling your skin concerns is what you use to cleanse your skin. This cleanser is good for teens, men and can be used daily and nightly. It also removes makeup. To really control that oily sheen you get by noon, use the ph Balance Mattefying Toner too. (More info will be on another blog) For more information on this product or others contact me!
The main ingredient (papain) in this light foaming cleanser loosens oil, dead skin cell buildup, and leaves the skin with a nice matte finish.
Papain—this proteolytic enzyme dissolves pore-blocking debris to help clean and energize the skin.
This cleanser also contains extracts of lemon, geranium, and fennel; these three ingredients help clarify the skin and balance oil.
Lemon on the skin: Lemons’ antibacterial and antifungal properties make them a naturally control oil, which helps keep pores clear and clean, and blackheads from returning.
Geranium on the skin: The astringent properties of geranium are also very advantageous for our skin. Our muscle contractions get significantly boosted with these. Consequently, we get a firm and toned look. Geranium can provide proper nourishment to our skin cells and keep those young and healthy for long.
Fennel on the skin: Fennel seeds offer amazing effects for the skin, antiseptic by nature, and loaded with antioxidants. As a result, they help prevent breakouts, cell damage, while keeping the skin toned.
It’s a bit chilly this morning here in San Antonio, Texas! Know doubt when temperatures drop, there is less humidity, more wind, we are cranking up the heater, and it’s like the moisture in our skin just vanishes. It’s no fun putting your makeup on dry, flaky skin. It feels rough, looks dull, and doesn’t glow. To help keep that skin nice and soft in this cooler weather, here are some tips for ya. These are the things you’ll need (think of it as your “winter skin” kit):

TIPS FOR PUFFY EYES & DARK CIRCLES
CUCUMBERS for dark eye circles: Applied to the skin around the eyes can help reduce the appearance of dark circles & puffiness. Cucumber slices help to lighten the skin and also have a soothing, refreshingly cool sensation when applied. (Great after staring at a computer all day)
VITAMIN E: Take a capsule, carefully pierce it with a clean needle, dab a bit of the oil on your fingertip, & pat it into the skin under your eyes.
COLD WASHCLOTH: Soaked in cold water & place over eye area. Cold water helps to constrict the blood vessels under the eyes and can also reduce puffiness.
TEA BAGS: Take a used tea bag (black, green or white), after it has cooled, and apply it to the skin under your eyes. Lay down while you do this – otherwise, it’s hard to get the tea bag to stick. Leave in place for about 10 minutes. Make sure wring out the tea bag just a bit so tea cant get into your eyes.
TRUE FACE IDEAL EYE CREAM: Instantly brightens the under-eye area, softening the appearance of dark circles and fatigue. Immediately reduces the appearance of eye puffiness for a smooth, refreshed look. Helps to reduce the look of dark circles.
