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
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.

A new generation of skin care is embracing not only innovative science and technology, but also paraben-free products. A group of conscious consumers are now looking for healthy skin care substitutes.

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:
“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.

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.

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.

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
With all these steps, a more youthful beauty is attainable regardless of age or skin type. Obagi has the right treatment for any skin care need.
