NEW! MAËLYS Underboob Deodorant and Breast Exfoliating Stick

NEW! MAËLYS Underboob Deodorant and Breast Exfoliating Stick

For those of us who are busty, MAËLYS has launched two new products that are must-haves in your beauty regime; especially for the upcoming summertime heat. For anyone amply gifted on top, you’re very familiar with such annoyances as boob sweat, bra marks, rashes, and uneven skin texture. There has been a void in the beauty industry for breast skincare and wellness until now. For a long time, breasts have been left out of being pampered. With MAËLYS’s two newest launches, GET-SILKY Breast Exfoliating Stick and GET-SASSY Underboob Deodorant, your “girls” are in for the pampering they always deserved.

NEW! MAËLYS Underboob Deodorant and Breast Exfoliating Stick

For anyone blessed with Ds and larger, humidity, friction, and sometimes fabric can be thy enemies. While it’s especially problematic during the hot summer days, the bountifully gifted have to deal with these issues all year round. We’re here to tell you, these two products will leave your “girls” truly loved. These two products from MAËLYS should absolutely be added to your daily self-care routine. The best part, both products smell absolutely incredible and are suitable for all skin types.

MAЁLYS GET-SILKY Breast Exfoliating Stick, $25.00

NEW! MAËLYS Breast Exfoliating Stickb Deodorant

Made especially for the delicate skin around the breast, the MAËLYS GET-SILKY Breast Exfoliating Stick unclogs pores, hydrates skin, and reveals your skin’s hidden glow. Made to use in the shower, we love that the handheld component of the exfoliant helps you control the pressure. We’ve all experienced rashes, excessive heat, and discomfort from our bras, fabric, and laundry detergent. This wonderful exfoliant helps get rid of everything that can irritate the skin under and around your breasts. Comprised of two scrub particles, Diatomaceous Earth to polish skin, and Coconut Shell Powder which busts through heavy layers of dead skin cells, you’ll be left with amazingly smoother skin. This small but mighty product also contains Goji Berry Fruit Extract to assist in fighting free radicals, toxins, and pollutants.

MAЁLYS GET-SASSY Underboob Deodorant, $25.00

NEW! MAËLYS Underboob Deodorant

Yes, this is a product that was long overdue. Thankfully the days of using harmful talcum powder to alleviate boob sweat are long gone. Thankfully, we have a healthier option for our underboobs to stay dry and feel fresh. The gentle, yet power-packed MAËLYS GET-SASSY Underboob Deodorant is designed to leave you with a fresh underboob area. You’ll be left very comfortable as excess moisture is absorbed throughout the day.  Thanks to corn starch, the secret to dryness, and a high content of aloe juice and cucumber water, you’re left with an instantly refreshing feel. Made without aluminum, talc, or parabens, your body is safe from the harmful effects of those cancer-causing ingredients.

Both products are available now and getting rave reviews (from us and everyone else). We know you’ll love them as well. We’d love to hear your thoughts on these two new skincare products.

Raise your hand if you miss rocking a full, beat face outside, that everyone can see! We certainly do but we take our safety seriously so we will continue to mask up. Of course, that doesn’t mean we still can’t have fun with makeup (the gram still exists after all). Unfortunately, we also are still dealing with the effects of maskne, but thanks to makeup and skincare products made with clean ingredients, we can help alleviate and reverse maskne.  This is why we’re so excited to play with the wonderful clean beauty offerings from C’est Moi Beauty.

Lola’s Lashes: The Magnetic Eyelashes Shaking Up the Beauty Industry

As the need to wear face masks continues, our need to purchase lipsticks continues to dwindle; this is something we’ve previously stated. That means when we’re out in public, our eyes, the windows to our souls, continue to take center stage. So while our lip color purchases decrease after months of minimal use, increases in eye shadows, eyeliners, and lashes purchases continue to hold steadfast. We know you’ve heard about magnetic lashes and how they’re shaking up the eyelash game. Today we highlight Lola’s Lashes, the leading lash brand that’s shaking up the beauty industry.

Lola’s Lashes: The Magnetic Eyelashes Shaking Up the Beauty Industry

With Lola’s Lashes premium Magnetic Lashes and Eyeliners, you can finally ditch the toxic lash glue and enjoy all-day hold. The easy to apply magnetic false eyelashes are non-toxic and come in eight styles, each of which uses the power of six magnets to transform your eyes to beguiling. Lola’s Lashes are vegan and come in eight style options: Amethyst, Moonstone, Rose Quartz, Sapphire, Jade, Amber, Diamond, and Ruby.

Rose Quartz – enjoy the subtle lift, length, and volume of these everyday lashes to play up your eyes. Unlike the previous two styles, these feature 5 mini magnets.

Lola’s Lashes: The Magnetic Eyelashes Shaking Up the Beauty Industry

Sapphire – if you’re looking for a more a natural-look, Sapphire offers a subtle finish and lashes that look like they’re yours, only better. They are great for those just getting into magnetic lashes. We recommend getting starting with the Sapphire Magnetic Eyelashes and Eyeliner Kit (pictured above). This set contains 1x pair of Magnetic Eyelashes in style Sapphire, Black or Brown Magnetic Eyeliner and Cleansing Oil.

Jade – another natural lash option, the Jade eyelashes are perfect for those who love to wear minimal makeup but want to look stylish and put together. Like the Rose Quartz and Sapphire, it too has 5 mini magnets.

7 Ways to Reduce Your Wrinkles Without Surgery

7 Ways to Reduce Your Wrinkles Without Surgery

No matter how much we try, we can’t escape the fact that time continues to tick on. And as the years go by, our bodies often start to show the signs of aging. But while the gradual development of facial wrinkles may be somewhat inevitable, that doesn’t mean you have to accept this fate when you’re still in your prime.

In other words, there are a number of things you can do to prevent and reduce wrinkles. What’s more, you don’t have to rely on surgical procedures to do it. Although there were 4 million cosmetic procedures performed nationwide in 2017, it’s not necessary to go under the knife to preserve your youthful appearance. Here are just seven tips that can help you fight the signs of aging — naturally.

7 Ways to Reduce Your Wrinkles Without Surgery

Always Wear Sunscreen

Fine lines and wrinkles can often be attributed to sun damage, so it makes sense that you’d want to protect your skin from harmful rays. Aside from reducing your sun exposure altogether, you should always take care to wear sunscreen on your face — even during the winter, on cloudy days, and when you don’t plan on setting foot outdoors. Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen that offers an SPF of 30 or higher to properly protect your skin. One study showed that applying this type of sunscreen for a year improve skin texture, clarity, and hyperpigmentation by 52% for participants. Of course, wearing sunscreen can also prevent skin damage and potentially alleviate your skin cancer risk.

Apply Moisturizer and a Retinoid

Sunscreen isn’t the only facial product you should apply on a daily basis. A daily (or twice daily) moisturizer can help your skin retain moisture; since dry skin is more likely to show or develop wrinkles, you’ll want to keep your face hydrated. It’s also a good idea to use a retinoid, which is a vitamin A derivative. Retinoids can increase collagen production, which can reduce the appearance of wrinkles, encourage cell turnover, and create new blood vessels — all of which can improve your complexion.

Remember to Hydrate

You can’t rely on your topical moisturizer to do all of the work. You’ll also need to hydrate from the inside out. Drinking water can help with virtually every function in the body, including toxin removal, but it also makes a huge difference in the appearance of your skin. Studies have found that higher water intakes can keep the skin hydrated, and we know that hydrated skin simply looks better. If you really want to achieve that glow-up, you should focus on how much H2O you’re drinking each day.

Use a Jade Roller

You might have seen jade rollers on social media, but they aren’t a new trend. Jade rolling has been around for centuries and was originally used to balance chi or energy. But it also has a cooling effect on the skin, which has a lot of purported benefits. Jade rollers can reportedly brighten the complexion, promote blood circulation, and reduce puffiness. They can also make it easier for skincare products to penetrate more deeply into the skin, which can prevent wrinkles in a more roundabout way. Although they can’t handle the wide temperature range of a load cell and torque sensor unit (which can operate between -452 and 450 degrees Fahrenheit), these rollers can even be refrigerated with other skincare products to provide an even greater cooling sensation on the skin.

Get Lots of Sleep

It may not sound like brilliant skincare advice, but getting enough shut-eye can do wonders for your appearance. When you’re running low on sleep, your body will actually produce more cortisol. Known as the stress hormone, cortisol is also responsible for breaking down skin cells. That explains why your skin tends to freak out when you’re under emotional strain. If you prioritize your beauty sleep, however, you’ll see that it really does live up to its name. As a result, you’ll produce more human growth hormone (or HGH), which can strengthen and elasticize the skin, making wrinkles less likely to develop.

Cut Out Your Vices

Since we’re approaching the end of the year, it’s a good time to think about setting resolutions. If your main goal is to improve the look of your skin in 2021, you might consider cutting out some of your unhealthy vices — like smoking and drinking alcohol. Both of these habits will dehydrate the skin and make your wrinkles more noticeable. Plus, anything that attacks your system from the inside is bound to show up on your face. Keep in mind that this is especially important during the ongoing pandemic, as these habits can lower your immune system and make it harder to fight off infections!

Revamp Your Diet

You’ve probably heard the expression, “you are what you eat.” And while that doesn’t mean you need to completely cut out comfort food, it’s a good idea to turn to Mother Nature when you want to improve your skin. Make sure to add foods rich in omega-3s (like salmon and flaxseed) to your diet, as this can keep your skin looking its best. And since vitamin C is also a good source of collagen and antioxidants can help protect skin cells from toxins, it pays to focus on fresh fruits and veggies, like citrus fruit, bell peppers, melons, berries, Brussels sprouts, carrots, sweet potatoes, tomatoes, leafy greens, and more. If you can eat the rainbow, you’ll start to see the effects on your skin! Foods that contain soy can also improve skin appearance for some people while swapping coffee out for dark chocolate can keep your skin more hydrated and improve circulation.

Now that you know how to prevent wrinkles with these simple and natural lifestyle changes, you may be able to avoid the need for more serious treatments. While not all skin issues can be solved with these tips, you may see a marked improvement — and may be able to keep those wrinkles at bay for years to come.

CLn Skin Care: Effective Dermatologist-Recommend Skincare

CLn Skin Care: Effective Dermatologist-Recommend Skincare

So many things can affect how your skin behaves: stress, the environment, diet, etc. Unfortunately, as we’re seeing yet another increase in Covid-19 cases, we have to continue taking precautions. That means suffering from Maskne, dry hands from frequent hand washing, stressed skin, and dull complexions. The pandemic has made it difficult to make in-person dermatology appointments, and while telemedicine appointments are available, trying to clearly show your skin issues via computer or phone screen is not the same as in-person. The solution? Using skin care products that are recommended by more than 6,000 doctors. CLn Skin Care is a range of effective products to help sufferers of reactive skin conditions like Eczema, Acne, and Folliculitis (Razor Bump or Burn).

CLn Skin Care: Effective Dermatologist-Recommend Skincare

The colder season brings lower temperatures and drier air, both of which affect your skin. Today, we’re highlighting three of the CLn Skin Care products – CLn Acne Cleanser, CLn BodyWash, and CLn HandWash. CLn Skin Care’s sodium hypochlorite cleansers help wash away skin triggering microbes, bacteria, and allergens without impairing the skin barrier to allow the skin to heal itself.

CLn Skin Care: Effective Dermatologist-Recommend Skincare

Let’s face it (pardon the pun), with layers that may include primer, foundation and powder, finishing spray, and a mask with filters, your skin might have trouble getting enough fresh air to breathe. The CLn Acne Cleanser is designed to penetrate pores to stop new breakouts before they begin, yet avoids the drying effects of many topical treatments.  Advanced cleansing is the first step to a healthy complexion. The CLn Acne Cleanser clears breakouts by eliminating clogged pores, killing acne-causing bacteria, and soothing skin. Thanks to this cleanser, we’ve stopped our breakouts dead in their tracks, even hormonal acne (a huge issue for us). We also noticed this acne cleanser doesn’t dry out our skin. We don’t have to follow this acne face wash with a heavy moisturizer as we did with others. Finally, an acne wash that doesn’t have side effects.

CLn BodyWash is a physician designed gentle formula for hands and body prone to infection, eczema, rash, redness, irritation, and folliculitis.  With continued use, CLn leaves skin looking smooth, clear, healthy, and refreshed. As we mentioned above, hormonal acne is a big issue for us. Add in regular stress acne and the skin on our body gets angry. We used this body wash on backne on our upper left side and our regular cleanser on the right; almost immediately we started seeing results from the CLn BodyWash. Within 3 days, that side was clear; this is a definite must for body acne sufferers.

The CLn HandWash is formulated with sodium hypochlorite and glycerin, making it tough on germs, yet gentle on skin – especially for frequent hand washing.  Designed by dermatologists, this non-prescription cleanser is tough on microbes but easy on the skin. It can be used for frequent hand washing that can cause sensitive skin to over dry and crack.

“One of the reasons I was drawn to CLn was its amazing efficacy for my patients suffering from eczema and acne,” said Dr. Sklar. “The far-reaching abilities of this patented sodium hypochlorite cleansers are astounding. I am very proud to be involved in the cultivation and success of CLn because I strongly believe in its ability to revolutionize skincare for everyone.” Jerald Sklar, MD, CLn Skin Care Board of Directors
