Skin Care 101

A few notes on daily skin care...

Taking care of your skin can be very simple!  The three main steps are cleansing, exfoliating and moisurizing.  

A cleanser suited for your skin type should be massaged in twice a day to help breakup dirt, debri and oil which gets trapped in the pores; rinse off with a face cloth to help exfoliate the skin.

It is important to exfoliate the skin once or twice a week to remove dead skin cells that can dull your complexion.  Exfoliation helps unplug pores and keeps the skin smooth and clear.  Massage your exfoliant in using a circular motion and rinse off with sponges or a face cloth.  

Moisturize twice a day to soften and hydrate.  Apply a layer of moisturizer over the entire face and neck area.  Even oily skin needs a light moisturizer to keep the skin soft and supple.

A few notes on extra treatments for the skin...

Eminence toners are packed with aromatherapy using fruits and herbs to balance the natural PH level and infuse your skin with natural vitamins and minerals; they help to increase product penetration as well as exfoliate the skin using beta-hydroxy acids.

Masks are used to treat the skin for specific concerns, such as lack of firmness, acne or rosacea.  When used consistently, once or twice per week they can dramatically increase the health of your skin.

Eminence sermus and oils have the highest concentration and absorption, using liposome technology to deliver active vitamins and nutriants into the deeper layers of the skin.  They are applied as the last step before moisturizing after your skin is cleansed and toned.  Although optional, once you experience the clarifying, hydrating and age-defying benefits of this step you will want to continue to include this essential step in your regime.

Protect your skin with Eminence organic minerals SPF 30, or using their daily moisturizers with a choice of SPF 16, 25, or 32.

A few notes on some of the key antioxidants used in Eminence products...

Vitamin A (source carrots)
  • One of the most effective antioxidants, one molecule of beta-carotene can neutralize a vast number of free-radicals (free radicals are oxygen molecules that have lost an electron in interactions with other molecules. As a result they are extremely unstable and damage healthy cells)
  • Very effective in reducing sun-damage and treating acne

Vitamin C (source rosehips)
  • Promotes collagen production (collagen is a protein, the strong connetive tissue that essentially holds us together)
  • Heals inflammation
  • Reduces sunburn
  • Slows down the production of melanin

Vitamin E (source tomatoes)
  • Extremely effective anitoxidant in the lipid phase of the skin cell (the lipid phase controls the ways in which water and other substances pass through the cell)
  • Protects skin cells from ultra violet light, pollution and other elements that produce cell damaging free-radicals
  • Protects the collagen
(Vitamin E is inactivated when it reacts with free radicals, it requires vitamin C to recondition its-self to be effective in neutralizing free radicals)

Co-Enzyme Q10  (source spinach)
  • Responsible for energy production in the aging cell
  • Assists in cellular metabolism (increases energy production and capacity to heal)
  • Protection from free-radicals
  • Assists other antioxidants
  • Essential for healthy skin and healthy heart!

Alpha lipoic Acid  (source evening primrose)
  • Increases the positive effects of other antioxidants and protects these vitamins
  • Increases the cells metabolism
  • Protects DNA

  • Promotes the growth of skin cells by irritation and stimulation
  • Improves blood flow to the skin
  • Irregular pigmentation can be diminished

Beta hydoxy acids  (source salicylic acid, related to aspirin)
  • Anti-inflammtory
  • Antioxidant
  • Exfoliates
  • Penetrates through sebum (the oil in our skin) that can become hardened in the pore leading to acne, clogged skin
  • Eliminates bacteria which causes irritation and acne
  • Promotes collegan production
(BHA´s are fat-soluble and penetrate into the deeper dermal layer of the skin)

Natural Retinol Alternative  (source chicory root and tara tree)
