Get A Sun-Kissed Jumpstart With Sunless Tanning Lotions

Posted for BeautyGift IdeasMoisturizersSkin CareSun TanningSunscreen On June 4, 2013

While the weather is warming up outdoors, many are throwing on their summer fashion and realizing how they need to remedy their pale skin. For those planning a summer vacation, many dread the thought of slipping into a swimsuit looking so white.

Not to worry. This is where sunless tanning lotion can help.

“Sunless tanning lotion is a great tool we can all use as a springboard into the summer months,” said the spokesperson at Skin Care Heaven, an e-commerce skin care store based in San Diego. “A quality lotion can look like a real suntan.”

The spokesperson pointed out that for those with sensitive skin issues, it’s best to get a sunless tanning lotion for the body, and then another, for the face. The top pick in this category at Skin Care Heaven is made by Sun Laboratories. Boasting an array of shades, this manufacturer offers Sun Laboratories Strictly Faces Self Tanning Cream and Sun Laboratories Self Tanning Lotion. Their mist self tanning products are also popular choices, too.

“It’s important to note that even with the best products, preparation and application is really important to get that perfect sun-kissed tan,” the spokesperson said.

Below are some easy-to-follow steps to get that look.

The Body:

• Use a sugar body exfoliator to remove dry skin to prepare the body for sunless tanning
• Rub in a very thin coat of a body butter or moisturizer
• Apply sunless tanning lotion with a damp sponge
• Move the sponge in small circular motions versus up and down – this will avoid streaks
• Following your application, be sure to regularly use a moisturizer in the days and weeks ahead
• Avoid hot baths and instead take quick, warm showers then blot dry

The Face:

• Use a gentle facial exfoliator to prepare skin for sunless tanning
• Rub in a thin coat of a facial moisturizer with fingertips
• Use a damp makeup sponge for application
• Apply small amounts at a time in circular motions until desired color is reached
• Be sure to moisturize on a regular basis to preserve the sunless tanning lotion for as long as possible

“When it comes to areas of the body which have wrinkles, such as the knees and elbows, be sure to apply a thin layer of sunless tanning lotion to avoid unnatural darkness in these zones,” said the spokesperson. “The best rule of thumb is to take your time with the application so it is done right.”

Self tanning cream can offer an overall healthy glow even before that first visit to the pool or beach.

Easy steps to get skin summer ready

Posted for Anti AgingGift IdeasMoisturizersnatural skin careparaben free skin careSkin CareSkin Care DeviceUncategorized On May 23, 2013

With warmer temperatures on the horizon, it’s time to bare those arms and legs with summertime fashion. Here are some body skin care tips to help keep skin looking healthy and gorgeous all summer long.

Dry Skin Treatment
Following the wintertime, skin can be extremely dry and this includes areas such as the arms, shoulders and legs.

Body exfoliation will give skin the jumpstart it needs.

The Crystal Peel Microdermabrasion Exfoliating Soap Body Bar is considered the first body microdermabrasion at home program.

“This soap bar lathers quickly while it gently removes dead skin cells which will help leave your skin toned and luminous,” said the spokesperson at Skin Care Heaven based in San Diego. “It also works hard to treat ingrown hairs, cellulite and stretch marks.”

Another way to exfoliate while showering or bathing is with Le Edge. Its stainless steel blade is an all natural exfoliating and gentle tool. It removes dead skin, dirt, debris and other impurities.

Another great body treatment is a sugar scrub exfoliator.

“One of our favorites is the Pure Fiji Coconut Sugar Rub which has coconut oils and flower extracts in its ingredients to help soften and nourish the skin,” she said. “It gently exfoliates the skin with natural alpha-hydroxys which will leave your skin hydrated and rejuvenated.”

Treating Dry Feet
Another area needing pre-summer TLC is the feet. During the colder months, many don’t get pedicures since it is boot wearing season. This can lead to very dry feet.

“Using the dry skin tips as mentioned before such as the Crystal Peel Microdermabrasion Exfoliating Soap Body Bar, Le Edge, and Pure Fiji Coconut Sugar Rub are great treatments,” said the spokesperson. “If your feet need a bit more attention, at night, you can soak them in Epsom salts and warm water for about 10 minutes; afterward, you can use our favorite products for a deeper exfoliation.”

Hydrating The Skin
After dead skin cells are buffed away hydrating the skin is the next important step. In this category, body butters and body lotions are the perfect fit.

Some popular choices include:

• Pure Fiji Body Lotion and Butters
Olivella Body Body Lotions and Creams
Mum + Bub Skin Care Products

“While you are hydrating your body, don’t forget to do your hands, too,” she said.

Other Quick Tips
Here are some other at-a-glance summer skin care tips:

• Use a non-soap cleanser to prevent skin dehydration
• Don’t forget a broad spectrum sunscreen to prevent future skin damage
• Stay hydrated with water intake
• Don’t forget natural skin care supplements and vitamins rich with vitamins D, A, C and K.

Following these simple steps will lead to gorgeous and radiant summer skin.

2 Great Products To Treat Stretch Marks

Posted for Anti AgingBeautyGift Ideasparaben free skin careSkin Carestretch marksUncategorized On May 16, 2013

With the summer months just around the corner, many are trying to get their body swimsuit ready. And one thing on the list to take care of is those stretch marks.

There are a couple reasons why women may have these white colored streaks on their thighs, belly, hips, breasts, upper arms and even the lower back. One is post pregnancy and the other is significant weight loss.

“A stretch mark occurs when there is a breakdown in the dermis which can also be referred to as a fracture of the dermis, as well,” said the spokesperson at Skin Care Heaven based in Carlsbad. “A stretch mark indicates that our skin has become fatigued when it was stretched during a weight gain or pregnancy and is having a hard time returning to its original shape and length.”

While there are many products on the market for stretch mark treatments, Skin Care Heaven has voted on their favorite ones to help rejuvenate the skin.

The first is called Lierac Phytolastil Gel.

“This topical is widely used in Europe and is known for treating and preventing stretch marks during pregnancy with a bio-element formula,” she said. “Lierac uses natural bio-nutrients like ivy, horsetail, and alchemlia to jumpstart a fibro-blast synthesis which helps fade stretch marks at a clinical level.”

Another product which can be used alone or in adjunct with the Lierac Phytolastil Gel is the Crystal Peel Microdermabrasion Exfoliating Soap Body Bar. Skin care professionals are also calling it the first easy-to-use body microdermabrasion at-home program.

The soap bar lathers quickly while it buffs away dead skin cells which leave skin toned and luminous.

“The Crystal Peel Microdermabrasion Exfoliating Soap Body Bar is also clinically proven to treat ingrown hairs, stretch marks, cellulite, and eczema,” the spokesperson shared.

While choosing the best stretch mark treatments, other preventative tips include:

• Maintain a healthy weight
• Include a diet rich with zinc such as nuts, fish or natural supplements such as a premium oyster powder
• Eat foods with healthy levels of vitamins A, C, and D
• Drink plenty of water
• Keep the skin firm with daily moderate exercise

Before starting any stretch mark therapy, especially when pregnant, it’s always advised to speak with your health care professional.

Here’s to summer filled with beautiful and healthy looking skin.

The 3 Best Pigmentation Correction Products

Posted for Anti AgingBeautyGift Ideasnatural skin careparaben free skin careSkin CareUncategorized On March 2, 2013

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.
There are some skin types which may not be able to tolerate hydroquinone. So, Skin Care Heaven took that into consideration when picking their top three.

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.

Best steps to avoid wintertime acne

Posted for AcneAnti AgingBeautyGift IdeasMoisturizersnatural skin careparaben free skin careSaleSkin CareSkin Care DeviceSkin Cleansers & TonersUncategorized On February 1, 2013

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

* Skin Care Heaven Basic Acne Clarifying System

“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.

New Year, New Skin Care Technology

Posted for AcneAnti AgingBeautyGift IdeasSaleSkin CareSkin Care DeviceUncategorized On January 9, 2013

Skin care technology has come a long way.  And the New Year is making it possible for everyone to have healthier, younger and more beautiful skin. While a daily topical skin care routine is fantastic, adding FDA cleared technology will boost those skin care goals to new heights.  

Skin Care Heaven, a leading e-commerce store and quaint storefront in Encinitas, handpicks only the best skin care devices. It’s a perfect starting point for those new to the world of skin care technology because their savvy professionals offer a wealth of information.

“People are so excited about new skin care technology because now they can have spa treatments in the privacy of their own home,” said Skin Care Heaven’s spokesperson.  “We’ve done the homework for you and stocked our shelves with quality devices which are FDA cleared.”   

One of the most popular devices to have hit the market shelves is the Clarisonic Cleansing System

“Clarisonic is such an important first step because it cleanses your skin and buffs away impurities,” the spokesperson said.  She added, “And not many people are aware that this is the same company who introduced the sonic toothbrush so they are really scientifically driven and have earned a lot of consumer respect over the years.”

Clarisonic users like the brush head varieties to ensure head to toe sonic cleansing.  This special system also does the following:

  • Improves skin tone
  • Lessens visible pores
  • Smoothes out fine lines
  • Promotes soft skin

“A superior handheld anti-aging device which offers micro-current technology is produced by NuFACE,” she said, adding how they have a few different selections to meet various skin type needs.  “This device superstar invigorates muscles beneath the skin through its micro-current technology and the results include tighter skin, toned and lifted cheekbone and brow areas, and overall skin rejuvenation.”

In less than five minutes a day, NuFACE will uncover more luminous skin.

Another trailblazer in skin care is LED light therapy.  This type of at-home treatment addresses anti-aging and acne prone skin. Skin Care Heaven chose LightStim for its LED light therapy choice since it is FDA cleared and easy-to-use.

“What separates LightStim from other types of LED light therapy is its unique application of red, amber and infrared LED light,” the spokesperson said.  She continued, “The LightStim Professional Anti-Aging Light Treatment offers all three combinations which boost collagen and elastin for younger looking skin.”

This LightStim also helps in areas such as:

  • Firms slack skin
  • Treats sun overexposure
  • Hydrates
  • Lessens the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Helps with hyper-pigmentation
  • Softens skin

“LightStim’s acne light therapy calms irritated skin while combating pimples.  This great LED light therapy also kills p. acnes, lessens pore size, improves acne scars, and treats blackheads,” she said.

Adding skin care technology to that New Year’s resolution list will be the easiest goal to achieve because the right devices will uncover gorgeous skin in no time at all.
