Spring has sprung and summer is on the way. The warmer weather is inviting more outdoor activity which means it’s more important than ever to apply sunscreen.
While sunscreens come in an array of sun protection factor numbers and consistency for different skin care types, they are now adding color to the ingredients. Skin Care Heaven, a skin research center and e-shopping hub based in Encinitas, has picked their favorite tinted sunscreens for this summer.
“Sunscreen has come a long way being that most are featherweight, oil-free and colorless,” said Skin Care Heaven’s spokesperson. “But they’ve come even farther because while they deliver solar protection some offer a tinted color to give us a sun-kissed look.”
This combination is growing really popular, said the spokesperson. While this summer sunscreen trend makes headway, Skin Care Heaven picked a couple tinted sunscreens which have received excellent feedback.
On the list is Dermaquest Skin Therapy ZinClear SPF 30 in Tan. “This Dermaquest product offers excellent coverage for various types of skin needs,” she said. “A physical and broad spectrum sunscreen, zinc oxide is part of its top ingredients which makes it ideal for sensitive skin.”
While offering a good solar defense, it also has antioxidants to help fight free-radicals which can spur premature aging.
Next on the list is EltaMD Skincare UV Physical SPF 41 Tinted Sunscreen.
“This chemical-free sunscreen offers an impressive SPF protection and is ideal for sensitive skin,” said the spokesperson.
Its natural mineral ingredients include zinc oxide and titanium oxide.
Like other sunscreens on the market, this tinted gem is water resistant, paraben-free and oil-free; and, it glides on silky smooth.
“These tinted sunscreens are so versatile that they can be applied by itself or underneath makeup,” she said. “The best part of all is that they will give you a healthy looking glow and keep your skin safe.”

The weather is warming up which means we all need to be more mindful of daily sunscreen. Picking the right sunscreen is important to protect your skin from cancer and premature aging, but what’s even more important is what types of products are out there.
And Skin Care Heaven has the information that you need in making the right choices.
Sunscreen has come a long way. They are now featherweight, non-greasy, and come in fragrance and paraben-free. Also, some of these sunscreen manufacturers offer an anti-aging and a skin recovery enhancement in its ingredients.
A full top inventory list can be found here.
A couple of these picks include Nia 24 Sun Damage Protection SPF 30 and Dermalogica Age Smart Dynamic Skin Recovery SPF 30 .
Remember, broad spectrum formulas (UVA and UVB protection) are important as well as these other ingredient options:
There is a flurry of skin safety tips when applying sunscreen. The most valuable is how sunscreen should be applied 15 to 30 minutes before going outside. And don’t be frugal with it – reports show we do not apply enough to protect our bodies.
Sunscreen should be reapplied every two hours. And after a swim or perspiring, do reapply immediately.
And before diving into some outdoor playtime, do check the product expiration date to ensure optimum skin protection.
Despite how powerful a product may be it is still always wise to find shade to give skin a break, wear a wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses for extra anti-aging care.

A new season is here which means it’s time to spring into new makeup colors and shades.
During the fall and winter months, the popular colors leaned toward darker, dramatic eyes and lips. Now, it’s time to lighten those shades especially during the day.
“This spring season is all about having a more natural tone which really enhances your beauty at another level,” said Skin Care Heaven’s spokesperson. “For starters, during the daytime, go ahead and put away that heavy foundation and use a tinted moisturizer instead.”
Skin Care Heaven, based in San Diego, is the leading destination for top skin care products and offers an onsite spa and skin care research center.
Tinted moisturizers have a wonderful way of hydrating the skin with a hint of color.
“Look for a tinted moisturizer like Revision Intellishade because it has an SPF of 45,” she said. “While this product conceals because of the tint, it protects and corrects your skin on an anti-aging level because of enhanced peptides.”
Tinted moisturizers offer a beautiful, glowing bare facial canvas.
While plums and wines were great hues for the lips during the fall and winter months, the warmer, spring trend is inviting pinks and lighter shades.
“During the day, a lip gloss is excellent,” she said. The spokesperson continued, “Our favorite lip gloss is made by Jane Iredale because it adds a gorgeous coat of shine while the mint and ginger ingredients naturally plump your lips.”
The spokesperson pointed out the must have colors this season are tourmaline, cotton candy, pink candy and neutral.
In the evenings, though, a lipstick is normally worn and the color can be a darker.
In fact, during Fashion Week 2013, a few models did have a deeper lip color leaning more toward crimson which added a great “after five” touch.
Makeup professionals are also telling women to use brown mascara during the day and switch to black for the evening time.
As for the upper eye lids, natural and neutral tone colors are the pick this season. “Again, the mineral makeup Jane Iredale line has a favorite called Glo Eye Shadow Trio in Sandstone which offers the perfect blend of color to highlight your eyes naturally.”
This spring season, it’s all about having that subtle natural look with a splash of color to highlight your best feature.

There is a direct difference between day cream and night cream. While both do moisturize, day creams offer protection against free radicals and night creams provide the skin an opportunity to rejuvenate and repair.
Although night creams is a term regularly used it’s also important to point out that there are evening serums that work their magic, too.
Skin Care Heaven based in the coastal town of Encinitas in San Diego offers both a spa and research center. They’ve handpicked their favorite skin care treatments for nighttime.
“Skin care science has made it possible for night creams to do more than just moisturize,” said Skin Care’s Heaven spokesperson. “Their role is so important in anti-aging and it’s also been reported by professionals that the skin repairs itself faster during the evening than it does during the day. Cellular activity generally occurs between 2 am and 5 am.”
This is why the right night cream or serum is so important.
The top picks for evening treatment are:
“Kinerase Ultimate Night Moisurizer works for eight hours,” said the spokesperson, adding how it minimizes wrinkles and fine lines. “And the kinetin in this product, which is a plant derived molecule that hydrates, embellishes your skin with better moisture, tone and texture.”
Also on the list, the Dermalogica Overnight Repair Serum is a combination of potent anti-aging peptides and oils to help renew skin. Users have seen a marked improvement with the following:
• Lessens the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
Dermalogica Overnight Repair Serum can be used alone or with a moisturizer.
“Another great pick is RevaleSkin Night Cream with one percent coffee berry extract,” said the spokesperson. She continued, “This special antioxidant extract has been clinically proven to battle the effects of free radical damage which helps create smoother and more gorgeous skin.”
Other ingredient highlights are vitamin E, and grapefruit extract, which gently exfoliates dead skin cells for a more youthful glow.
Last but not least in the lineup is DermaEarth Peptidal Activating Serum. While this product can be used both morning and night, skin care professionals are noticing the great effects it has while one sleeps.
“DermaEarth Peptidal Cell Activating Serum is an advanced anti-aging product with Botulinum toxin-inspired activity; and, it strengthens the skin’s antioxidant shield and helps inhibit glycation to protect your collagen for younger looking skin.”
Users of DermaEarth also notice improvement with less wrinkles and age spots.
A nighttime skin care routine is equally important as a daytime regimen. The right night treatment can reverse the signs if aging and uncover youthful radiance.

After a cold and windy winter, dead skin cells are giving many a dull and lackluster complexion. This is why so many people who care about the appearance of their skin renew themselves with a new springtime skin care routine.
The good news is that making a beeline for the nearest day spa isn’t necessary. Many skin care treatments can be done in the privacy of one’s own home making the process both convenient and affordable.
The three top skin springtime tips are the following:
“The first important step to get your skin ready for springtime is to exfoliate,” said the spokesperson from Skin Care Heaven based in San Diego.
One product which offers two perks for the price of one is DermaEarth’s SugarBerry Skin Resurfacing Cleanser.
“This naturally scientific product is a facial cleanser which uses sweet sugar cane extract, lactic acid, tartaric acid, and malic acid to visibly improve facial skin texture,” she said. “While it thoroughly cleanses, it exfoliates with alpha-hydroxy acids.” This skin care line is paraben-free and void of any suspect ingredients making it a welcome for those who are into healthy skin care solutions.
Another great exfoliating product is Obagi Nu Derm Exfoderm Forte. Also containing alpha-hydroxyl, it supremely exfoliates dead skin cells revealing radiant skin. It also prepares the skin for other product penetration.
Following an exfoliating treatment, it’s important to hydrate the skin. A good moisturizer or serum should be applied both morning and evening. Once again, Obagi and DermaEarth deliver great results.
“DermaEarth Peptidal Cell Activating Serum adds hydration, diminishes the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, and improves age spot challenges,” said the spokesperson. “This product transforms wintry, tired skin to a luminous glow.”
The natural science behind DermaEarth products is a blend of high performing lab natural peptides and natural ingredients which are formulated with Rx grade technology.
“And Obagi Hydrate moisturizes skin by using the natural ingredient of Hydromanil extracted from tara seed, shea, mango, and avocado,” she said.
And springtime skin care would not be complete without sunscreen. Being skin safe with a solar defense is one of the most important things to do to prevent premature skin aging and skin cancer.
When purchasing a product, search for a broad spectrum sunscreen and one which is water resistant. Remember, reapplication of a sunscreen throughout the day is necessary to ensure protection.
“A couple favorites on our list include Doc Martin’s of Maui and EltaMD Skincare UV PURE SPF 47,” she said. “Each manufacturer has an array of sunscreen products to choose from and all are really great.”
These springtime tips are a surefire springboard into looking gorgeous with ease.

As many enter their forties, they begin to notice uneven pigmentation also called age spots. They can vary in shades of color and sizes such as freckles or even larger patches. And more times than not, it’s a skin imperfection people want gone.
What causes this hyper-pigmentation is often sun overexposure.
Skin Care Heaven, a leading e-commerce skin care store, spa and research center based in Encinitas, has chosen its best selling pigmentation correction products. While handpicking their top winners, they took mature, premature aging, normal, dry, and sensitive skin care types into consideration.
In their best pick list is Obagi Nu Derm Clear. A hydroquinone-based product, it does an excellent job diminishing pigmentation issues.
“Obagi Nu Derm Clear is one of the best products to clear up age spots and remains one of the best skin bleaching creams around,” said Skin Care Heaven’s spokesperson. “This product is also one of our staff favorites.”
Obagi Nu Derm Clear is part of a skin care system but can be purchased separately.
Another product offering great results is the DermaEarth EnLighten Cell Brightening Serum. This product is hydroquinone-free, arbutin-free, kojic-free and paraben-free. “This DermaEarth line uses multiple peptides and other natural pigmentation correction ingredients to reduce sun spots, age spots and other uneven skin tone issues,” said the spokesperson. She continued, “This is truly a great natural, but scientifically driven treatment for uneven skin tone.”
One more hydroquinone-free product on the list for those sensitive to hydroquinone is Dermaquest Skin Therapy Skin Lightening Serum.
“Users of this Dermaquest line notice how their skin lightens and brightens which makes it a win-win product,” said the spokesperson, adding how it gently exfoliates. The kojic acid, she explained, minimizes pigmentation issues and also helps ward off future melanin damage.”
With any pigmentation correction products, sunscreen must always be worn and reapplied when outdoors.
Ongoing use of these types of systems will unleash healthy and more flawless looking skin.

Over the years, many anti-aging skin care systems have hit the market. Yet, over time, Obagi products are still the leader of the pack. While Obagi has certainly created an array of skin care, the most prominent in their lineup is the Nu-Derm System.
“The Nu-Derm System by Obagi is the best product for every skin type and need,” said Skin Care Heaven’s spokesperson. “While Obagi is strides ahead in anti-aging skin care, Nu-Derm really transforms your skin by making it look younger and more radiant because it treats skin at the cellular level.”
Skin Care Heaven, based in San Diego, offers numerous skin care lines and agrees that Obagi is part of its elite selection.
“Obagi realizes that there’s just not one product that reverse signs of aging. Instead, it’s a system in where the synergy of all products can achieve that goal,” she said.
The Nu-Derm system is available for dry, normal and oily skin. It also addresses the following skin care challenges:
• Age spots
And this particular system has all its anti-aging goals covered by providing users with:
• Foaming Gel Cleanser to clean the skin

Some may think that the summer months is the only time of year where people deal with acne. But that’s not the case. The cold temperatures during the winter and early spring months can worsen acne and spur new pimples.
Many skin care professionals believe that the reason for wintertime acne breakouts is the mixture of cold weather coupled with indoor heated rooms.
“The drastic change between outdoor and indoor temperatures is causing dead skin cells and debris to clog your pores, “said Skin Care Heaven’s spokesperson. “These clogged pores will cause acne in no time at all.”
Skin Care Heaven, an e-commerce skin care store and storefront in San Diego, offers products to help those with acne. And this includes seasonal acne, as well.
“Skin care technology has come a long way and there are actually two devices that can really help acne sufferers,” said the spokesperson. “The first is a Clarisonic Cleansing System to ensure a good cleaning of your skin and pores and the other is LED light treatment from LightStim.”
LightStim is being called a great skin care device that can heal and prevent acne. Its combination of blue, red, and infrared wavelengths assists with the following:
* Calms redness and inflammation brought on by acne
* Clinically demonstrated to destroy acne bacteria, P. acnes
* Decreases pore size
* Helps heal acne scars
* Treats blackheads
“While skin care devices are excellent in the fight against acne, using good topical skin care treatment is essential,” said the spokesperson. “What works best is an acne treatment system and they can cost anywhere from $35 to $150.”
The best acne treatments include:
* Dermalogica Clean Start Kit
* Obagi Clenziderm MD
“When shopping around for the right acne treatment system, it’s important to find products that stop breakouts, but at the same time, help keep your skin hydrated,” she added. “A great system will include a deep pore cleanser, a daytime and nighttime topical, and even a mask that absorbs excess oil.”
The right skin care regimen can stop acne in its tracks.
