Summer vacation is here. And while it’s time for fun in the sun, keeping our skin nourished is extremely important.

Skin Care Heaven, a skin care store and skin research center based in San Diego, is serving up a summer vacation checklist to help make sure everyone’s skin stays healthy and gorgeous.

“Even though summer vacation is a time to relax, one thing we cannot relax on is our skin care regimen because we have to protect it from premature aging from the sun and keep it well hydrated,” the spokesperson at Skin Care Heaven said. “There are core products we don’t want to forget when we are traveling.”

This suitcase list includes:

Soap-free cleanser
Moisturizer
Broad spectrum sunscreen
• Lip balm with SPF protection
• A duo body and hand lotion
• Nighttime treatment(s)

“One really popular must-have for your getaway is the mini travel size Crystal Peel Microdermabrasion Exfoliating Soap Body Bar which buffs away dull skin for a more glowing and silky look in those summertime fashions,” she said. “This bar is also clinically proven to help with stretch marks and cellulite.”

For those who aren’t committed to a skin care manufacturer, summer vacation is a great time to pick up a travel skin care set. Not only is it light to pack, but it gives you the opportunity to test a new skin care regimen for a fraction of the cost.

“If you are flying to your destination, don’t forget to keep your lip balm, moisturizer and lotion on hand since air travel will dehydrate your skin,” she said. “And be sure you meet those carry-on 3.4 ounce TSA rules so you aren’t forced to leave your favorite products at the security checkpoint.”

With the right skin care arsenal, summer skin will look luminous and radiant.

Expert tips for spring travel skin care

Posted for AcneAnti AgingBeautyEye Care & Eye Make UPLip CareMoisturizersnatural skin careparaben free skin careSkin CareSunscreen On April 15, 2013

Keeping on track with skin care goals can be a challenge when traveling. Not only is sticking to a routine a challenge, but if air travel is part of the getaway, the rules for carry-on items can make things more difficult.

Skin Care Heaven, a leading online skin care store and research center based in San Diego offered some tips can make this task a breeze.

“Spring travel is a season where we don’t want to lose sight of our skin care regimen because it’s recovering from the wintertime damage of dehydrated skin,” the spokesperson at Skin Care Heaven said. “There are core products that we don’t want to skimp out on so we can keep our skin healthy and looking great while we are away.”

Travel skin care sets, the spokesperson said, are a great choice because most meet the carry-on TSA requirement of 3.4 ounces or less.

“And travel skin care sets really give you the opportunity to try a new skin care regimen for a fraction of the cost,” she said.

On the flipside, if someone already likes the current products they are using, they can pack the following must-haves:

Soap-free cleanser
Moisturizer
• Broad spectrum sunscreen
• Lip balm with SPF protection
• A duo body and hand lotion
• Nighttime treatment(s)

“If the above products come in larger than 3.4 ounces than you need to figure out if you want to transfer a portion in travel containers for your carry-on or just put them in your checked-in luggage,” she said. “Many choose to put these skin care essentials in their carry-on just in case their luggage gets lost.”

For longer flights, the spokesperson said, it’s best to keep the lip balm, moisturizer and lotion on hand since these air travel times can be skin dehydrator moments. “If you already have dry skin, you’ll want to keep on top of it by hydrating while in flight,” she said.

Since flight regulations may regularly change, the best rule of thumb is to visit http://www.tsa.gov/ to ensure those skin care items can be cleared through TSA.

The Best Springtime Makeup Tips

Posted for Anti AgingBeautyCosmeticsLip CareMineral MakeupMoisturizersparaben free skin careSkin Care On March 20, 2013

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.

Christmas Stocking Stuffer Ideas For Mom

Posted for Anti AgingBeautyEye Care & Eye Make UPGift IdeasLip CareMoisturizersSaleSkin CareSun TanningUncategorized On December 20, 2012

This year, Christmas stocking stuffers are leaning more towards a theme rather than a host of different ideas. Think of it like a themed gift basket but it’s in a Christmas stocking instead.

If the stocking that needs stuffing are gifts for mom, a wife, or even a girlfriend, chances are she will love it if the theme is on skin care. After all, every woman wants to look and feel beautiful. And above all, it will show her how much time and thought was put into it.

What’s great about Christmas stockings is that they can be packed with any type of budget in mind including affordable gifts for her.

Most of the items listed below really couldn’t arrive at a better time. The cold winter weather coupled with the heated indoors will dry skin out. These gifts will ensure that the she keeps the soft supple skin that she deserves.

Here are some fantastic Christmas stocking gift ideas from Skin Care Heaven, an e-commerce store based in Carlsbad which offers free delivery. She’ll love these items not only this year, but will more than likely want them next year, too.

Hand Cream:

Women are always applying hand cream, and even more so, when the weather is chilly out. Look for cream with vitamins that will nourish and protect her hands from premature aging.

One favorite is Olivella Hand Cream which is made with virgin olive oil. It repairs dry and chapped hands. Aside from olive oil, other great ingredients to find in hand creams are:

  • Cocoa Butter
  • Coconut Oil
  • Jojoba oil
  • Shea Butter

Shower and Bathing Gels:

Locating a gentle cleanser which reverses dry skin to a silky luminous state is worth its weight in gold.

One favorite is Pure Fiji Coconut Shower Gel. The gel is made with coconut and honey. The coconut hydrates the skin with multiple vitamins, and minerals. And its fatty acids soften the skin. Fiji honey repairs damaged tissue, improves skin tone, and helps fight off free radicals that can cause premature skin aging.

In a bathing gel, fantastic product formulas will have:

  • Antioxidants like vitamins A and E
  • Anti aging formulas
  • Paraben-free
  • Dermatology tested

Body Moisturizer:

After a bath or shower is the time to apply a body moisturizer. Body moisturizers can be found in:

  • Butters
  • Creams
  • Lotions
  • Oils
  • Ointments

These above types of moisturizers are applied when the body is slightly damp to make her skin soft and radiant.

Lip Conditioner:

As many already know, lips tend to chap easily in the wintertime. It’s also important to purchase a balm or conditioner with a sun protection factor, too. Just because it may be overcast doesn’t mean skin won’t get UV damage.

A product that many women are getting hooked on is Kinerase Ultimate Volume Lip Conditioner. An anti aging conditioner, its peptides increase lip volume and reduce signs of aging for more youthful kissable lips.

Avoid petroleum derived products because that will increase dry lips. Other great ingredients to look for in a lip conditioner are:

  • Aloe Vera
  • Anti-Ozonate
  • Coconut Oil
  • Dehydrasomes
  • Grape Seed Extract
  • Green Tea
  • Shea Butter

Sun-Free Tanning:

Although this product doesn’t fall into the “how to heal dry skin” category, many women still want a bronze look to go with their evening holiday attire. With so many products to choose from here’s a helpful shopping checklist:

  • Offers a natural look
  • Streak-free
  • Lasts up to seven days
  • Has excellent reviews

With all these great skin care Christmas stocking ideas for her, another thing to stuff in there may be a cosmetic bag for all her new goodies.

Posted for Anti AgingBeautyEye Care & Eye Make UPLip CareMoisturizersSkin Care On January 27, 2012

I don’t know what it is about Jane Iredale, but this mineral makeup manufacturer has a special way of creating makeup.  Their vision crystallized into products that not only looks beautiful on the skin but is healthy, too.

As many know, the biggest tip in beauty is finding the right foundation. After all, it prepares the canvas for the other makeup to follow.

Among the impressive list of Jane Iredale Makeup inventory, we offer some sterling choices in foundations such as Liquid Minerals Foundation, Pure Pressed Base, and Amazing Base.  All these products have an array of shades to match any skin tone and phenomenal coverage capabilities.

Below is a brief description of each to help you make the right choice for your skin.

Jane Iredale Liquid Minerals Foundation

Known to even out skin tone and smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, this foundation is packed with lysosomes, vegetable glycerin and aloe vera.  They are wonderful formulas that benefit the skin.

The bottle holds a liquid formula which contains beads.  Described as cutting-edge, Jane Iredale delivers active ingredients in these beads that are time-released and penetrate into the skin.

After an application, Jane Iredale users either apply Amazing Base or Pure Pressed Base for broad-spectrum sun shielding protection.

Jane Iredale Pure Pressed Base

Stored in a compact, this product is a powerhouse combination of a foundation, powder, concealer, and sunscreen. This makeup base, recommended by the Skin Cancer Foundation, has a sun protection factor of 20.  Its algae extract helps lock in moisture to keep skin looking youthful and protecting it from ultra violet rays.

For those with sensitive skin, Pure Pressed Base has no fragrances, oil, talc, parabens and fillers which make it a perfect choice.

Jane Iredale Amazing Base

This rich, loose mineral foundation offers UVA and UVB broad-spectrum sun protection providing the ultimate solar defense. Like the Pure Pressed Base, it’s also free from oil, talc, dyes and parabens.  Amazing Base is excellent for people with sensitive skin, including conditions such as eczema and roseacea.

It is also recommended by the Skin Cancer Foundation.

Finding a foundation that offers coverage, skin care perks, and sun protection gives you another tool to keep that youthful and luminous glow.

The Shelf Life of Skin Care Products

Posted for AcneAnti AgingBeautyEye Care & Eye Make UPLip CareMoisturizersOily SkinSkin CareSkin Cleansers & Toners On January 23, 2012

Skin care products don’t have an expiration date. So, this makes things a bit tricky in figuring out when to toss out skin care products before they go bad.

As chief officer of an online skin care product store, a producer of my own product line, and operation of a new day spa, it’s important to understand the potency of a product and when it’s time to pitch it. Our health always comes first.

To keep track, some suggest writing a date on the packaging but so many of us forget to recheck it. Instead, a better way is to use your computer or cell phone calendar with “alarm” reminders for a 3, 6, 9 and 12 month checkup to see if it’s product trashcan time.

While many think their products may last up to two years that really may not be the case on all types of skin care and beauty products.

For example, if a cream or lotion product has turned thin or lumpy, chuck it. Other signs to watch out for are:

  • Changes in smell
  • Has a different feeling on the skin when applied
  • Turned darker in color
  • Product divided itself into visible layers

And anti aging products which contain antioxidants, retinol, and vitamins are always at a higher risk for a sooner expiration date. So be sure lids are replaced tightly.

To keep bacterial contamination from happening, keep your fingers out of those containers. When bacteria gets in there, the product is ruined and there’s no turning back. A perfectly new skin care product can go bad instantly once bacteria invades it.

Other helpful tips are:

  • Store your products in a cool place such as a cabinet.
  • If your new product has a broken seal return it immediately.
  • Keep your products away from the sunlight.
  • Always wash your hands before using skin care products.
  • If an infection or rash is brought on by a product throw it out.
  • Do not add water to a formula.

Because there are no regulations and expiration dates, it’s really up to you to figure out when it’s time to part with your products. At first, it may feel like you are throwing away money, but in the end, you are saving your body from the threat of bacterial contamination. And no one wants to risk that.

Remember, these products only last so long once that lid is officially unscrewed.

Although moisturizers, serums, and creams tend to last 6 months to a year, some product ingredients can speed up the expiration date such as:

  • Plant Extracts: known for its wonderful skin care properties, plant extracts have a shorter shelf life.
  • Preservative-Free Ingredients: while many enjoy the thought of not putting preservatives on their bodies, do keep an eye out for changes since preservatives help fight off bacteria.
  • Water: if this is the first or second item on the list of ingredients it has more of a chance to promote bacteria.
  • Wax: this ingredient may also offer a shorter expiration date especially if it has little water in its formula.

It’s important to point out that if you stick with your skin care routine and are mindful of bacterial contamination, chances are you’ll use up your product before it expires.
