4th of July Essentials

Fourth of July is the perfect time to gather with friends and family and celebrate America’s adoption of the Declaration of Independence in 1776. The day is often associated with lake days, parades, firework shows, beach trips and other activities that allow us to spend the day outdoors. That’s why we’re dishing our favorite COSMEDIX products and snack ideas to make prepping for this day a breeze!

Skincare Essentials

With scorching temperatures, sun exposure and water activities, it’s important to have your favorite skincare items on hand for reapplication. Here’s what we recommend for keeping skin refreshed, hydrated and protected when outdoors.

 

Hydrate+

Protect your skin against age-accelerating free radicals and future sun damage with the help of this dual-action daily SPF 17 and moisturizer. The lightweight formula is suitable for all skin types and works to improve elasticity and loss of radiance, ensuring skin stays hydrated and protected from outdoor elements.

 

Peptide Rich
This intense, age-defying sunscreen takes skin defense to the next level with an advanced formula that replenishes moisture loss, helps improve signs of aging and prevents sun damage with broad spectrum SPF 50. The formula also includes Squalane, which instantly hydrates and soothes the skin, which is perfect for a hot summer day.

 

Mystic

Go hands-free with this Hydrating Treatment that helps eliminate dry skin, reduce the appearance of oil and protect skin from environmental and free radical damage on-the-go. It’s perfect for a mid-day pick me up to keep skin looking healthy and refreshed.


Restore
There’s nothing better than adding a facial mask to your nighttime routine after a day in the sun. Restore, a Moisture-Rich Mask, restores skin to optimal health by providing vital moisture with key hydration retention ingredients.

 

Food + Beverage Essentials

No celebration can go without proper food and drinks, so stock up on these nutrient-rich snacks that will help fuel your body and promote overall skin health.

Infused Water
We all know the endless benefits of drinking water but throw in a few slices of lemon and lime for fresh and zesty take on traditional water.Lemons act as a natural detox and the limeis rich in Vitamin C, which works as an antioxidant and fights against harmful free radicals.

 

Apple Tray

Apples are the perfect easy-to-grab snack that has additional benefits for healthy, glowing skin. Apples are rich in nutrients, like Vitamins C and A to promote skin health from the inside.  Simply cut up your favorite apples and keep them on display for family and friends.

 

Chia Pudding
Chia seeds are all the rage and making it into a pudding is the perfect breakfast option before heading out for Fourth of July festivities. Chia seeds are rich in omega-3 fatty acids and have anti-inflammatory properties that will help promote a clearer and calmer-looking complexion.

 

Berry Bowls
Throw an assortment of strawberries, raspberries, blueberries and blackberries into a bowl and you’ll have a quick and easy dish that’s jam-packed with skin-clearing antioxidants. Not only are berries tasty, but according to a 2009 study by the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology, berries help protect skin from harmful UV rays, as well.

 

COSMEDIX wishes a happy and safe Fourth of July to everyone!

Skin Sins

The outward appearance of our skin is a direct reflection of our lifestyle habits. During the next 30 days, challenge yourself to eliminate these skin sins to promote a healthy change in the skin:

  1. Drinking carbonated drinks:Due to the high sugar, sodium and caffeine that’s found in soda, the body is often left dehydrated after you drink one, which may cause breakouts or a dull-looking complexion.
    The challenge: This month swap out your favorite carbonated soda with flavored sparkling water. Satisfy your craving andpromote good skin health with this simple, yet effective hack.
  2. Not changing your pillowcases:Even if you’re diligent with your nighttime skincare routine, pillowcases harbor dust, bacteria and oil that may lead to breakouts if they are not washed regularly. The challenge: This month try switching out your pillow case twice a week for optimal results.
  3. Touching your face:From the office to our cars, grocery store, gym and more, our hands are constantly collecting germs throughout the day. When you touch your face, the germs transfer, making it easy for breakouts to surface. The challenge: For the next 30 days, make your face a strict no-touch zone outside of applying skincare with cleansed hands. 
  4. Stressing out:Ever notice how blemishes appear when stressed? That’s because our bodies release hormones when we’re stressed than can lead to excess oil and active breakouts. Ease into your day and wind down at night by indulging in a soothing and calming skincare regimen. The challenge: This June, carve out 10 minutes each morning and night to indulge in a regimen that helps you escape your daily stressors.
  5. Using the wrong products:Acne-fighting products are constantly hitting the market but using the wrong lineup could be causing your breakouts. Get to the root of the issue by consulting a skincare professional that can help build a regimen that can target your specific needs.

Why wait for a special occasion to treat yourself to a spa day?

Located in the heart of Walnut Creek, California is the luxurious Changes Salon & Day Spa that can take care of your beauty, skincare and stress-relief needs all in one location!  This unique venue consists of 18 hair stations, 11 treatment rooms, a semi-private pedicure room, an Aqua terra relaxation room and men’s and women’s locker rooms with steam lounges. The best part? This salon and spa duo is packed with COSMEDIX products that can help resolve some of the most troublesome skincare concerns. After all, it was voted The Best of The Easy Bay over 50 times for a reason!

Changes is equipped with 60 talented team members that are dedicated to meeting your salon and spa needs. We took to the 2017 COSMEDIX Esthetician of the Year, Lexie Choate-Bewley, to see which products she recommends for keeping her client’s skin looking and feeling its best this season.

Pure Enzymes
This Cranberry Exfoliating Mask is formulated with Chirally-correct L-Lactic Acid and Cranberry enzymes to exfoliate away dull surface cells and pore-clogging impurities for a smoother and more radiant-looking complexion. This mask gently exfoliates and hydrates skin with the help of Gluconic Acid.

Why Lexie loves it: If there are clogged pores in the skin, a scrub is just going to exfoliate the surface, so the Enzyme will give a deeper clean and exfoliation that is even gentle enough for sensitive skin.

Rescue +
This Intense Hydrating Balm & Mask delivers instant relief and hydration to agitated, inflamed or extremely dry skin. Packed with argan oil and shea butter, this mask calms and rejuvenates the complexion, which makes it perfect for an overnight treatment.

Why Lexie loves it:  I use Rescue+ whenever a client is feeling too “spicy” with the Pure Enzymes by itself. I will mix a pea-size of Rescue+ to give a bit of buffer to the feeling of Enzyme. Clients will get the healing aspects of Rescue + and the glow from Pure Enzymes!

Purity Detox Scrub
A Multi-Layer Detoxification System with Salicylic Acid that cleanses the skin and polishes away imperfections for an all-around smoother, clearer complexion. The cocktail of poppy, jojoba and date seeds work as a physical exfoliator to scrub away dead skin cells and debris.

Why Lexie loves it: If a client comes in with dry, clogged skin, I will create a polish out of Pure Enzyme, Rescue + and Purity Detox Scrub for the ultimate exfoliation. I recommend that my clients apply this mixture 1-2 times a week to keep the results of the treatment room going at home.

Transitioning Skincare in NZ with Samira from Loft Beauty Lounge!

Calling all of our Australia and New Zealand fans! We tapped our friend Samira Sultan-Rouse from Loft Beauty Lounge in Christchurch, New Zealand, to run down some of her favorite products for transitioning skincare!

+

The change of season is in full force here in New Zealand – Autumn is here! The clocks have gone back, the days are darker and shorter. So what does this mean for our skin?

The thing that is presenting itself daily in my clinic daily is dehydration and a lacklustre appearance to the skin. As the weather is still transitioning and is some what erratic – so is the use of air conditioning and heating in our vehicles at home and the workplace. Artificial heating such as heat pumps are drawing the moisture out of our skin and creating fine dehydration lines and a sallow appearance. Walking in from the cold air to warm inside environment isn’t helping much either. This is why transitioning our skincare and incorporating some lifestyle adjustments to suit the elements and our environment is so important.

AMP UP YOUR ANTIOXIDANTS

Protecting your skin from external aggressors that contribute to the breakdown of collagen, trans epidermal water loss (TEWL) and inflammation in the skin is important as the days are getting cooler. Consider incorporating a daily booster such as AFFIRM, PURE C or RADIANCE utilising powerful antioxidants such as:

  • L Ascorbic Acid
  • Vitamin E
  • Resveratrol
  • L-Superoxide Dismutase
  • Spin trap

PROTECT YOUR BARRIER FUNCTION

When your skins natural barrier is impaired – skin will feel tight and dry, water in the skin will evaporate faster (TEWL), skin can become sensitised with higher colour, textural irregularities appear and fine lines become more visible. Increase/maintain the integrity of your skins natural barrier function by consuming adequate fluids, consuming essential fatty acids in your diet and protecting it topically.

  • Essential fatty acids keep our cell membranes in tact, reduce inflammation, help us to produce good quality oil to lubricate the skin and prevent TEWL. Consume oily fish, avocado, raw nuts and flaxseed oil daily
  • 2.5 L water per day – includes herbal teas which are easier to consume when its cooling down outside
  • Topical moisturisers like HUMIDIFY, RESCUE + and EMULSION containing ingredients such as niacinamide, shea butter, colloidal oatmeal, trehalose and hyaluronic acid will support barrier function

MASK IT UP!

If you’re new to applying masks at home the change of season is great opportunity to experiment and infuse some goodness into your skin. Opt for moisture surging, glow enhancing or dual action masks such as PURE ENZYMES, GLOW or BIOSHAPE to give your skin a weekly boost. If your skin is really feeling the effects of the cooler weather – try leaving a generous application of a hydrating mask like RESTORE or RESCUE + on overnight for an extra burst of moisture.

DON’T SCRIMP ON THE SPF

Yes its cooler and you’re spending more time inside – but the effects of UVA and UVB rays are still in full force (even when the suns hiding!). Consider trying an SPF that has the added benefits of peptides, antioxidants and hydrators built in – and don’t forget to reapply during the day. PEPTIDE RICH DEFENSE and REFLECT are favourites!

 

For further advice on how to support and protect your skin through the change of season, be sure to see your COSMEDIX skin therapist for personalised  home care recommendations and in clinic treatments.
