What’s New in Skincare: Dermalogica PreCleanse Balm

Have you ever washed your face and thought it was clean but then you use your toner and still see traces of dirt, oil, or your makeup? Did you know the average person spends less time than recommended cleansing their skin? This isn’t sufficient enough to remove all the make-up, sunscreen, excess oil, and environmental pollutants that build up throughout the day. In the age of long-wearing makeup, super harsh environmental allergens, and crazy climate phenomena, you need a product that will truly clean your skin without stripping it. Thankfully, there is a product that does wonders in thoroughly cleansing your skin to leave it wonderfully clean, the Dermalogica PreCleanse Balm.

The Dermalogica PreCleanse Balm ($45.00) is “step zero” in Dermalogica’s exclusive Double Cleanse technique. It attracts and dissolves the layer of buildup that typically blocks your regular cleanser. This unique cleansing balm cuts through the buildup in just one application, setting the stage for your healthiest-looking skin ever. We’ve been using it for a few weeks now and not only has our skin improved from being truly clean, our face looks less oily. We’re also enjoying supple and soft skin as the temperature outside continues to decrease. A water-activated formula that transforms from a balm to an oil, the Dermalogica PreCleanse Balm is an innovative take on Dermalogica’s iconic, top-selling PreCleanse Oil.

This oil-based cleanser is ideal for normal to dry skin types. It features a Natural Biolipid Complex that locks in hydration and reinforces the skin barrier while Apricot Kernel Oil helps nourish the skin – AND it comes with a double-sided, ergonomically-designed mitt for enhanced cleansing and exfoliation! How do you use it? Check out the easy steps below:

  • Step 0: Dispense the balm onto the cleansing mitt or directly to the dry palm of your hand. Massage into dry skin. Add water to emulsify and transform the balm into a lightweight cleansing milk. Rinse.
  • Step 1: Apply your Dermalogica Cleanser to remove any leftover traces of PreCleanse Balm and impurities for a professional level of clean. Skin is left soft, nourished and ready to receive the benefits of your regular skin care regimen.

The Dermalogica PreCleanse Balm comes in a 3.0 oz/90 mL tube with the cleansing mitt and retails for $45.00. Find it at leading Dermalogica Spas and Salons, Ulta Beauty, Bluemercury, and www.Dermalogica.com.

Scorpio Season: Beauty Products to Keep the Eighth Sign Calm

Welcome to Scorpio season, the time to celebrate the most intense, passionate, and powerful sign in the zodiac. As Scorpios, it is certainly true that we can sometimes run a little hot, so keeping us cool and levelheaded is very important. Today marks the first day the sun enters Scorpio kicking the Jupiter effect in high gear. Jupiter only visits each zodiac sign every 12 years, making this year extra special for us Scorpios. To honor this significant event, we are highlighting three beauty products that are meant to keep us (specifically our skin and hair) calm all season long – Dermalogica Stress Positive Eye LiftLa Roche-Posay Hydraphase Intense Mask, and La Roche-Posay Hydraphase Intense Mask.

Contrary to what is said about Scorpios, we do take the time to unwind and relax. In fact, it’s quite easy for us as we tend to go with the flow. We can be calm, cool and collected (just don’t get us upset). For those who a little extra assistance, add these relaxing beauty products to your routine for the most peaceful birthday month yet!

  1. Dermalogica Stress Positive Eye Lift: Remain stress-free with this cooling cream-gel masque. The high-performance formula energizes skin to reduce visible signs of stress, minimizing puffiness and dark circles for increased skin radiance!
  2. La Roche-Posay Hydraphase Intense Mask: Lay back and relax with this daily face mask that provides immediate and long-lasting hydration and improved luminosity. Fragmented Hyaluronic Acid provides instant plumping while antioxidant-rich thermal spring water soothes skin.
  3. Marc Anthony True Professional Hydrating Coconut Oil and Shea Butter Deep Nourishing Treatment: This lightweight Oil Treatment penetrates the cuticle to help nourish and hydrate your hair leaving it smoother and shinier. No need to fret over frizz – apply a couple of drops on hair before bed and wake up with silky, smooth locks.

Welcome to our season Scorpios and happy birthday to all those celebrating. Scorpios Rule!

Titan by Silk’n: The Latest Must-Have Anti-Aging Beauty Device

How we’d love to live a life of luxury where we can get pampered whenever we desire. We’d love nothing for than our face to look radiant and youthful, and our skin to be glowing. But spa visits don’t come cheap unless you take advantage of those twice a year $50 Spa Week deals and plastic surgery is too expensive. But there is hope for affordable beauty treatments you can enjoy. If you’re ready to reduce your fine lines and wrinkles and lift and tighten your sagging skin, keep reading. It’s the latest must-have, anti-aging beauty device, the Titan by Silk’n Skin Tightening and Lifting Beauty Device.

The Titan by Silk’n Skin Tightening and Lifting Beauty Device is the most advanced and least invasive way to tighten the skin. This breakthrough at-home device works from the inside out to activate the body’s natural restoration process. It features infrared energy which increases blood circulation to improve skin tone and texture, it uses LED Light Energy to grow new collagen to reduce fine lines and wrinkles and boasts RF Energy to penetrate deep beneath the skin to contract connective tissue, remodel collagen and strengthen elastin to lift and tighten sagging skin. Basically, it seeks out your damaged tissue and repairs it.

What makes the Titan by Silk’n such a breakthrough beauty essential? This at-home hand-held device uses the same technology offered by leading dermatologists and cosmetic surgeons. Unlike with surgical procedures and many medical spa treatments, the Titan by Silk’n requires no recovery time and is suitable for the entire face and neck. It is the first of its kind that has been clinically tested, FDA cleared and proven to safely tighten facial skin from the comfort of your home. When used with the Slider Gel, which acts as a conductor and is required to emit the energy deep beneath the skin), the Titan by Silk’n Tightening and Lifting Beauty Device should be used twice a week, for 10 weeks. The total treatment time for one single treatment zone takes 15 minutes and it is recommended that you treat
each area individually.

The Titan by Silk’n (with included Slider Gel) retails for $269.00, which is a much more affordable option than any facial or plastic surgery procedure. The Titan is suitable for both women and men, all skin types and skin colors and makes a wonderful holiday gift.
