National Aesthetician Month Winners!

Four years ago, COSMEDIX founded National Aesthetician Month as a way to give back to our spas and professionals. We saw a lack of appreciation for aestheticians and all that they do for our skin, and felt the need to make a change in the world to highlight those that inspire our brand.

Each year we honor COSMEDIX aestheticians in each region for their service in October. We give them the title, “Aesthetician of the Year” to help boost awareness in their area of their undivided attention and service to the industry.

Introducing Protect UV

Every skin care junkie knows that SPF is an essential part of your everyday routine, and we’re excited to introduce the newest product in our SPF lineup Protect UV Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Moisturizing Spray! This lightweight, oil-free spray provides broad-spectrum SPF 30 protection coupled with soothing moisture, making it ideal for even those with sensitive and acne-prone skin. It’s the perfect addition to your morning routine to provide your skin with protection from powerful UV rays.

Protecting your skin from the sun is a year-round job! No matter what the occasion, season or weather, your skin needs a daily dose of SPF. Why is sunscreen so important you ask? It’s one of the easiest ways to prevent the development of skin cancer, sunburns or sun damage that can accelerate signs of aging. Adding a sunscreen like Protect UV to your daily routine gives your skin a layer of defense against the sun’s powerful rays, whether you’re outside or spending your day in the office.

Protect UV is formulated as a weightless, quick-drying mist with a clean scent. It works both as a daily hydrator and the ultimate skin protector against environmental stressors. Apply it every morning to your face, neck and chest before applying makeup for daily moisture and protection.

Protect UV combines both clean and clinical ingredients, including:

  • Titanium Dioxide, a naturally-occurring mineral that can reflect light and is used most commonly as a UV filter.
  • Niacinamide, also known as Vitamin B3, which helps improve barrier function, skin texture and tone to keep your skin silky smooth.
  • Green Tea Extract, a powerful antioxidant that not only helps protect skin from environmental stressors but also gives Protect UV its fresh, clean scent.

Summer may be over, but the sun isn’t going anywhere! Try out Protect UV as your year-round SPF.

When it comes to relaxation, every inch of our bodies needs attention and pampering when it comes to taking care of ourselves. Relaxation is a practice that requires that all of us is at ease and there are three new products that will help you reach destination relaxation. To start your relaxation process, Body Polish Dual-Action Exfoliating Body Scrub jumpstarts your pampering during your nightly shower. While you shower, apply Body Polish and scrub into your skin in circular motions to exfoliate dull, listless skin cells to reveal vibrant, more youthful-looking skin. The exhilarating scent of grapefruit oil, lavender and eucalyptus calms and soothes frazzled senses.

Aft you get out of the shower, the relaxation continues with A-Lift Retinol Body Treatment that helps hydrate your skin overnight for you to awake to renewed skin that looks healthier and younger.

Dry Skin Brushes are fantastic for waking up lackluster skin that needs a pick-me-up at any time of the day.

When the soft, gentle bristles brush against your skin, they help wake up your circulation and the soothing feeling gives you a calming effect that boosts you right into relaxation mode.

These products can be used every other day and you can work up to daily use as your skin can tolerate them. After a night of relaxation and rejuvenation, your skin will wake up feeling refreshed and ready to take on a new day. Take the time for yourself and let go of the stresses of the day and allow your mind, body and skin to relax and create your own personal at-home spa day. Happy National Relaxation Day!

Whether it’s taboo to admit or not, many of us look to our favorite celebrities for skincare tips and tricks—and, let’s face it, we want to know exactly what they’re using so we can replicate their beautiful, glowing results! Because we work closely and partner with many celebrity aestheticians, a few of our products have recently been picked up by our favorite A-List celebs! See what they’re loving from the line.

Purity Solution Nourishing Deep Cleansing Oil

“First up in [Victoria Beckham’s] regimen is the COSMEDIX Purity Solution Nourishing Oil, a deeply cleansing mixture of argan, olive, and moringa oils, as well as melia azadirachta extract (also known as neem, which promises to purify and help reduce the appearance of redness due to dry skin).” –Refinery29.com

Purity Clean Exfoliating Cleanser

“[Victoria Beckham] follows up the Purity Solution with the brand’s Purity Clean. It’s an exfoliating cleanser that removes any leftover traces of dirt, oil, or makeup that might remain (it’s nice to know that Beckham is also a big fan of the double-cleanse method).” – Byrdie.com

Opti Crystal Liquid Crystal Eye Serum

“Between [Kim Kardashian West] studying for the Bar exam, taking care of her three (and soon-to-be-four) small kids, and her early morning workouts, it’s no wonder Kim K needs a heavy-hitting eye cream—the woman must be exhausted! The COSMEDIX Opti Crystal treatment works to address all areas of tired eyes: dark circles, lines, and puffiness.” – womenshealthmag.com

Serum 16 Rapid Renewal Serum

“Kim’s now using the COSMEDIX Serum 16 which is a retinol serum (best used at night only). Retinol has been shown to help reduce fine lines and wrinkles as it stimulates your body to produce more collagen. This serum also has squalene, a super hydrator.” – womenshealthmag.com

Purity Clean Exfoliating Cleanser, Clarity Skin-Clarifying Serum and Purity Balance Exfoliating Prep Toner

“’I use the COSMEDIX Purity Clean Cleanser, which contains salicylic acid to help kill any acne-causing bacteria,’ he says, adding that he appreciates how clean it makes his skin feel. Immediately after, he uses the brand’s Purity Balance Toner followed by the Clarity Skin Clarifying Serum, both of which contribute to keeping his skin balanced and clear.” – allure.com interview with Keita Moore, celebrity makeup artist

We’re excited to introduce the newest addition to our starter kit line, our new Clarifying & Cleansing Starter Kit, formulated specifically for oily, blemish-prone skin. The best part?

Salicylic acid gently exfoliates dead skin cells while aloe vera helps hydrate and soothe, leaving you with a refreshed and uber-clean complexion with each use.

Once your skin is squeaky clean, it’s time to apply Clear, our bestselling Deep Cleansing Mask that helps draw out pore-clogging impurities with kaolin clay, sulfur, salicylic acid and tea tree oil.

Willowherb, tea tree oil and aloe vera soothe and calm the skin, so you’re never left with a dry, stripped-feeling complexion.

With Shineless, oily skin is treated with ingredients like lilac stem cells and niacinamide that work to promote a firmer, smoother-looking complexion while helping to reduce the appearance of redness. After cleaning, masking and treating your skin, applying Shineless helps keep oily complexions hydrated but never greasy.

Refresh Your Summer Skincare Routine

Sometimes we need to wash away the things that make our skin unhappy and cause it to react in not-so-nice ways—everything from makeup, skin impurities, reactions to diet and sometimes just the stressors of the day. Especially in the summer when temperatures are hot and our skin is constantly faced with sweat, sunshine and oil, a refreshing skin care routine can take your complexion to the next level and breath new life into your tired, dull-looking skin. Purity Clean Exfoliating Cleanser, Benefit Balance Antioxidant Infused Toning Mist, Affirm Antioxidant Firming Serum and Peptide Rich Defense SPF 50 Moisturizer are all refreshing additions to your routine that can help rejuvenate your complexion to keep your skin looking healthy, renewed and glowing in the summertime.

Exfoliate, minimize excess shine and remove oil with our #1 bestselling cleanser, Purity Clean. From the ingredients to the rich minty scent, Purity Clean refreshes with the gentleness of peppermint essential oil to cool and calm acneic skin. It’s a combination of skin-loving ingredients, including clarifying tea tree oil and exfoliating lactic acid that help unclog congested pores, improve the look of uneven texture and discoloration and transform your skin to renew a healthy, youthful-looking glow.

Benefit Balance is the ultimate skin pick-me-up in the summertime. This fan-favorite toner helps nourish your skin back to health with soothing green tea, aloe vera and chamomile. The trio of calming ingredients gives your skin a deep clean that protects from harmful free radicals without stripping away your skin’s natural moisture, while lactic acid and witch hazel help balance, cleanse and exfoliate the skin.  After giving your skin an extra deep cleanse with Benefit Balance, it’s time apply your serums and moisturizer.

Blocking your skin from environmental stressors, which can increase visible signs of aging, is key to obtaining and maintaining a healthy, rejuvenated-looking glow. Affirm Antioxidant Firming Serum helps protect the skin against harmful free radicals for a firmer and healthier-looking complexion. Packed with age-defying peptides and antioxidants, Affirm nourishes the complexion with radiance-boosting vitamins as it helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It’s our fountain of youth in a bottle!

To help keep harmful and aging ultra violet sunrays from damaging your skin, Peptide Rich Defense Moisturizer with Broad Spectrum SPF 50 Sunscreen helps condition your skin and helps it retain much-needed hydration. Helping to reduce the look of hyperpigmentation, acne scars and dark spots, Peptide Rich Defense creates a 98% block of UVB rays that can cause fine lines, wrinkles and discoloration. It’s the ultimate hydrating final step in your refreshing summertime skin care routine!
