Transition From Winter to Spring Skincare with These 4 Beauty Brands

Transition From Winter to Spring Skincare with These 4 Beauty Brands

Just as we do with our wardrobe when one season changes to another, so should we do with our beauty and skincare products. It’s all about transitioning your skincare products to adjust to the changes of the season. This is especially necessary when transitioning from winter to spring skincare. A change of season means a change in temperatures, dryness, environmental debris, etc. With these changes plus the ongoing effects of Maskne, our skin has a lot of adapting to do. Products that may have worked for winter may not work during the warmer spring season. Your skincare choices should reflect that.

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

Over the years, the team at CLn Skin Care has had several tests conducted for kill rates of their products; the results are below:

  • 99.9% kill rate of P. Ances at 30 and 60 seconds
  • 98% kill rate of S. Aureus at 2 minutes
  • 99.9% kill rate of S. Aureus at 3 and 5 minutes
  • 99.9% kill rate of Coronavirus at 15 and 30 seconds

If you’re battling Maskne, dry hands from frequent hand washing, or looking for a solution to treat dry, flaky skin, get acquainted with the products from CLn Skin Care.

Indonesian Beauty Secret: Juara Rice Facial Cleanser

Juara Rice Facial Cleanser: The Indonesian Beauty Secret

As some of you may know, I very recently moved; while I’m ready for all the fun and adventure my new apartment will bring, I found myself playing scavenger hunt with my beloved skincare products. Because I still have several boxes to unpack, I made the mistake of buying a grocery store facial cleanser (one for acne as the stress of moving was breaking me out). Big mistake because my skin ended up paying for it in the end. Luckily, I was rescued (and currently healing), thanks to rice water, specifically the Juara Rice Facial Cleanser. If you’re not yet familiar, rice water is Asia’s best-kept secret. Rice water is rich in vitamins, minerals, and amino acids. It boasts ferulic acid (an antioxidant) and allantoin, an organic compound that helps soothe and heals the skin.

Indonesian Beauty Secret: Juara Rice Facial Cleanser

After just one use of the Juara Rice Facial Cleanser, my tight and dry skin felt clean, softer, and smoother. This sulfate-free, lightly foaming cleanser removes all traces of makeup and dirt without stripping skin. Thanks to its combination of gentle, effective cleansing agents, Vitamin-rich Rice Bran and Candlenut Oil, your skin is left refreshed, hydrated and revitalized. Inspired by the traditional rice water rinse common in Indonesia as a softening and brightening treatment, the Rice Bran softens and smoothes skin while the Candlenut Oil moisturizes and helps mend rough, chapped skin without clogging your pores.

Our skin was left feeling soft, smooth, and clean without the dryness that’s plagued while using the grocery store purchase. It’s even gentle enough for even the most sensitive skin, as well as acne break-out prone skin. This rich in natural Vitamin B cleanser also helps soothe skin and reduce redness.

The Juara Rice Facial Cleanser is 100% vegetarian. It is Dermatologist-tested, free of Parabens, Sulfates, Phthalates, mineral oil, gluten, artificial colorants, and harsh chemicals.

The 4.5oz/133ml bottle of Juara Rice Facial Cleanser is available for $29.00 on www.amazon.com and  www.juaraskincare.com.

It is not even summer yet and the humidity is already doing a number on our skin. We don’t know how you guys are handling what feels like a layer of oil, dirt, heat, and grim on your faces (seriously, we feel the need to wash our faces all the time) but we need a bit of a cool touch to make our faces feel clean whenever we’re outside for more than 20 minutes.

Collosol Eau de Lait: A French Secret for Parched, Wind-Whipped Skin

This winter’s bone-chilling temperatures have been wreaking havoc on our skin, stripping its moisture, disrupting the barrier function and leaving our faces dry, red and raw. We’ve been looking for anything that could help and came upon a wonderful French skincare secret. Cleansing our skin at the end of the long cold day with Collosol Eau de Lait.

Using Collosol Eau de Lait invokes the feeling of the milk baths that long ago royals indulged in. We imagined our skin felt exactly as theirs did, enjoying the beautifying benefits of the historically acclaimed milk bath. Not only did Collosol Eau de Lait take off all our makeup, our skin was left wonderfully soft. There was none of the tightness we’ve been experiencing during the harsh winter days we’ve been having. Using Collosol Eau de Lait during the blustery Bomb Cyclone was a true test of how amazing this product is. We promise you, it’s a must treat for your skin.

So what exactly is Collosol Eau de Lait? It is a moisturizing milk/micellar water hybrid. A thorough but gentle cleanser that can be applied with a cotton pad to remove makeup, moisturize, and soothe stinging skin. No rinsing with water is required, a good thing since the limestone in tap water can be irritating to parched, wind-shipped skin. The universal formula is also suited to all skin types, from sensitive to dry to oily/acne-prone. You will also love the subtle fragrance it leaves behind. It’s sure to take your mind off those cold winter days.

Here’s a cool tip: Lace a warm bath with Collosol Eau de Lait to cleanse, hydrate and luxuriate in the milk’s sweet, musky scent…and forget all about the frigid cold weather outside.

Collosol Eau de Lait is a French skincare classic created in Paris in the 1950s, which is now thankfully available in the U.S. at www.smallflower.com.
