3 Holygrail Products You Need to Tame Dull Skin and Get that Vday Glow

Ready, set, prep your way to Valentines Day skin that glows! Between the chocolate, candles and romance of it all, it is easy to overlook one of THE most important parts of a good Valentine prep—your skincare.

Whether you are celebrating with the girls or plan to put on a full face of glam, your skin needs to be ready. Show your skin some love the night before and achieve a smooth makeup application the next day with 3 easy skincare steps that add a little love and affection to your nightly skincare routine:

Use an Exfoliating Face Mask

Get your complexion ready for the day of L-O-V-E with an exfoliating face mask. Using a chemical exfoliant or gentle facial scrub before bed will help polish away dull, dry skin and reset the complexion for the swoon-worthy day ahead. If you struggle with blemishes, give them some extra valentine attention by applying a Detox face mask with purifying ingredients like charcoal. And if you are looking to amp up the glow, incorporate a face scrub that contains brightening ingredients like the ever-popular Vitamin C.

Indulge Your Skin to Rich Moisture

Now that the dry skin layer has been washed away, let your complexion drink up ultimate hydration. Applying an Intensely Hydrating balm or mask after you exfoliate is a simple way to help boost product absorption and quench the complexion. Look for skincare products that are rich in moisturizing  ingredients such as Shea Butter, Hyaluronic Acid and plant-based extracts to help soften and plump the look of skin, so you can wake up to a complexion that is ready to glow for your vday fun.

Apply a Lip Treatment

We get it. Sometimes we’re so focused on that star-crossed glow that we forget our lips are actually part of our skincare. But honestly, is there anything more important on Valentines Day than a kissable pout and cupid’s bow? We think not. Prep your lips for Valentine pucker with  hydrating lip products the night before. We love to use a lip exfoliator to gently scrub away dull skin before coating the lips in a rich lip balm or Lip-Plumping Mask to help deeply condition, improve the look of fine lines and reveal a fuller-looking put in the AM.

BONUS! The Day Of:

Add a Vitamin C Boost | Don’t forget to add a dose of Vitamin C into your skincare routine on the day of love. Vitamin C Powder and serum is known to help brighten the look of skin while improving the appearance of skin texture so that you can glow, baby, glow.

Get Rolling | Are you feeling a little puffy before your Galentine’s party or Date Night in? No problem. Use a facial tool—like a Rose Quartz Facial Roller—to help roll away the look of tension and puffiness for a more radiant-looking complexion.

Amp Up Hydration | Give your skin a little pick-me-up throughout the day (or night) with a refreshing facial mist or Hydrating Face Treatment. These are a great and on-the-go way to add the lightweight hydration our skin craves throughout the day—plus they naturally add a dewy appearance to the skin for the ultimate Vday glow!

Chemical Exfoliants 101 with Pure Enzymes

Ready to give chemical exfoliation a try?

If there was any silver lining to this past year, it was a newfound appreciation for our beauty and at-home skincare routines. And, if you haven’t ventured into the realms of chemical exfoliants, you might be missing out. While the name might sound like something you brewed up in chemistry class, it is actually a popular method of skin exfoliation that has been used in the skincare industry for years. Nothing to fear here!

So, if you are looking to up your at-home skincare routine, join us as we deep dive into everything you need to know about chemical exfoliants, including a how to with one of our favorite COSMEDIX chemical exfoliants, Pure Enzymes:

What is a Chemical Exfoliant?

Let’s start with the basics. We’ve all heard of a physical exfoliator (think sugar scrub, walnut scrub, or scrub brush), but what about its chemical alter ego? Popular among skincare professionals, a chemical exfoliant is an acid and/or enzyme that is added to a skincare product to help exfoliate dead skin. Often available in a variety of different strengthens, these exfoliants can be applied to the complexion in the form of a cleanser, toner, lotion or face mask. And, while the word “chemical” might sound a little more advanced, don’t let that make you apprehensive! A number of chemical exfoliants are actually gentler than traditional scrubs.

How Does it Work?

Rather than using gritty skincare ingredients to remove dry skin, chemical exfoliators help slough away dead skin by encouraging healthy skin renewal. Examples of chemical exfoliants include AHAs, BHA and Fruit Enzymes—all of which work at different levels to help exfoliate the complexion:

AHA (Alpha Hydroxy Acid): Ideal for normal to sensitive skin types, AHAs work to exfoliate the outermost layer of skin to help improve the look of uneven skin tone, texture and dark spots.

BHA (Beta Hydroxy Acid): Great for acne-prone or oily skin types, BHAs work deeper into the skin to help cut through pore-clogging impurities and refine the look of congested pores.

Fruit Enzymes: Unsurprisingly, Fruit Enzymes are derived from… well, fruit. Papaya, Pineapple and Cranberry are popular forms of fruit enzymes that can be applied to skincare formulations to help exfoliate away dull, dry skin. They are also a gentle alternative to AHA and BHA exfoliants.

So, What’s the Deal with Pure Enzymes

Pure Enzymes Cranberry Exfoliating Mask combines L-Lactic Acid—an AHA—and Cranberry Enzymes to help polish away dull, dry surface skin. Powered with refreshing and moisture-boosting ingredients, this  antioxidant rich formula also helps protect the skin from environmental stressors while locking in long-lasting hydration for a softer, plumper-looking complexion.

How to Apply + How Often to Use…

The most important key to exfoliating with Pure Enzymes is knowing HOW to use it and what to expect. Pure Enzymes can be used 2-3 times a week, depending on your skin type. Because of the chemical properties in this face mask, a little redness and tingling is to be expected—so don’t panic! That’s just the exfoliating and uber-hydrating skincare ingredients doing their best work!

To apply:

Step #1: Use COSMEDIX Dual-Sided Silicone Mask Applicator to apply Pure Enzymes to the face in sections. Don’t forget your neck!

Step #2: Allow to the mask to sit on the skin from 3-10 minutes. 3 minutes is usually best for sensitive skin types, where more oily or normal skin types can benefit from a longer application.

Step #3: Use warm water to gently remove the mask with your hands or a washcloth. Pat dry and follow up with your favorite COSMEDIX serum and moisturizer.

Get to Know Your Scalp with the NEW Skincare for the Scalp (Treatment)

The game of life is all about finding a perfect balance, so it shouldn’t surprise you that your scalp is in search of the same thing! Sure, the scalp might be overshadowed by beautiful locks and flowing hair (literally), but that doesn’t make it any less important. The skin on your scalp lays the foundation for the health and strength of your strands and, if the scalp is imbalanced, it has the potential to lead to dry skin and brittle hair. No thanks.

So, how do you know if your scalp needs balance?

An imbalanced scalp isn’t as easy to spot as an imbalanced complexion. After all, nothing quite gets your attention like a giant blemish popping up right before the big holiday event or company Zoom meeting. While the scalp might be a little more subtle, it will always find a way let you know if it needs some extra love and care.

Everything from stress, to diet, to hat wear can affect the balance of your scalp. Excess oil or dry, flakey skin are the first obvious signs that the scalp isn’t happy. And, if you’re as dedicated to your dry shampoo as you are to your morning coffee, that is another obvious sign that your scalp needs a reset!

Looking for the reset button?

You’ve come to the right place! We’re taking skincare from your face to your head with our latest addition to the Body by COSMEDIX line: Fortify Cooling Enzyme Scalp Treatment. The first scalp product to join our professional skincare collection, this cooling treatment is our latest secret to a more balanced scalp and three-day hair (and, who doesn’t want that?).

Fortify Cooling Enzyme Treatment wraps the scalp in a cooling sensation that helps balance the skin and remove product buildup. Formulated with an exfoliating enzyme and rich antioxidants, this weekly scalp and hair treatment also helps lift away the dry skin that can often cause the scalp to feel itchy or flakey.  With each use, Fortify boosts the scalp with lightweight hydration as it works to help restore balance and encourage the appearance of hair that is soft, shiny and easier to manage.

It is true that healthy looking hair begins at the root, so indulge your scalp to this invigorating treatment with these skin-loving ingredients 2-3 times a week:

Pumpkin Ferment Extract (Rich in Vitamins A, C and E) | An exfoliating enzyme that helps condition dry scalp and hair

Rhodiola Rosea Root Extract | Antioxidant-rich extract that helps soothe dry skin

Brassica Campestris (Rapeseed) Sterols | Helps improve hair manageability for beautiful-looking strands

Powerful blend of Biopolymers| Deeply hydrate dry skin to help relieve an itchy scalp without an oily residue

How to Apply: No scrubbing here! Unlike typical scalp treatments, Fortify contains a chemical exfoliate that helps polish away dry skin—without a gritty texture. Simply apply the Cooling Enzyme scalp treatment to dry and unwashed hair. Gently massage the product into the scalp, wait 2-3 minutes and rinse. Follow up with your favorite shampoo and conditioner.

It’s Peel Season: Find the Chemical Peel Fit for You

Peel the love this holiday season with winter’s favorite spa treatment. Chemical peels are a fabulous way to hit “reset” on the complexion, and while you can opt in for a peel anytime of the year, the cooler months are definitely an optimal time to schedule this spa exclusive appointment.

New to the Facial Peel game? COSMEDIX is here to answer some of your burning peel skincare questions and give you a breakdown of which COSMEDIX peel treatments we recommend for your skin!

So, what is a Chemical Peel?

Let’s start with the basics. A chemical peel is skincare technique performed ONLY by a trained aesthetician (no trying this at home, kids). The goal of this specific peel treatment is to help remove dry skin and impurities on the outermost layer of skin to help reveal the smooth, supple skin underneath.

What is the downtime after treatment?

Well, that depends. Peels are available in different levels, with lower level peels usually requiring little to no downtime. On the other hand, high level peels can cause moderate to severe skin flaking, which is why clients are instructed to stay out of the sun and follow a strict skin care routine. This is also why winter is often the best time to book your chemical peel!

Consult your aesthetician or find a spa near you to find the level that is right for you. COSMEDIX chemical peels range from low Level 1 to a moderate Level 2!

What are the benefits of a chemical peel?

Every peel is different, but common benefits include a brighter complexion, smoother skin, reduced fine lines and wrinkles, a more even skin tone and radiant-looking skin. You can always choose a peel that addresses specific skincare concerns for a more “targeted” result. What’s not to love?

COSMEDIX Chemical Peel Recommendations:

For the Peel Beginner: Pomegranate Peel (Level 1)

If you’re a newbie to the game of peels, the low-level Pomegranate Peel is the perfect place to start. Made with Fruit Enzymes and Lactic Acid, this antioxidant-rich treatment works with all skin types to help lift away dry skin and brighten the complexion. And, the best part? Unlike its stronger counterparts, this gentle peel works at the surface level so that you can carry on with your day while experiencing minimal skin peeling.

For Blemish-Prone Skin: Clarity Peel (Level 1 + Retinol)

Give skin a moment of Clarity with this Exfoliating and Clarifying Treatment. If stubborn blemishes and congested skin are your skincare concerns, then this Level 1 Peel with retinol was made for you. Formulated specifically for blemish-prone and oily skin types, Clarity features two chemical exfoliants—Lactic Acid and Salicylic Acid—and Vitamin A to help refine and clarify the look of skin as it washes away pore-clogging impurities.

For Uneven Skin Tone and Texture: Deep Sea Peel (Level 2)

Uneven skin tone and texture is a common skincare concern that can be addressed with the proper facial peel. If smooth skin is what you seek, ask your aesthetician about the COSMEDIX Deep Sea Peel. This polishing treatment is part chemical exfoliant, part manual scrub that helps resurface the complexion while improving the look of uneven skin.

For the Peel Pro: Timeless (Level 2 + Retinol)

Made for the peel expert, Timeless Peel is COSMEDIX highest level peel that helps dramatically improve the look of skin. With 30% AGP Retinol Complex and 30% Lactic Acid, this age-defying peel contains  the highest level of potent ingredients to encourage healthy skin renewal while improving the look of wrinkles and pigmentation. Powerful results may include mild to moderate skin flaking.

COSMEDIX National Aesthetician Month Digital Events for Aesthy’s Schedule!

It is National Aesthetician Month!

Created to celebrate the essential role all aestheticians play in a client’s skincare journey, National Aesthetician Month strives to reward the dedication and expertise aestheticians bring to the skincare industry. From performing chemical peels and extractions to teaching proper at-home facials, aestheticians work hard to ensure their clients are equipped with self-confidence that is more than skin deep. The month-long celebration also seeks to spark an educational conversation beyond the skincare community by raising awareness for skin health. As a sponsor for National Aesthetician Month, COSMEDIX highlights the importance of visiting an aesthetician to address skincare concerns and helps educate consumers on proper care for the body’s largest organ—the skin. 

As a brand founded by aestheticians for aestheticians, COSMEDIX is always looking to marry education, skincare and awareness. In honor of National Aesthetician Month, COSMEDIX will recognize two outstanding organizations: Skin of Color Society (S.O.C.S) and Good360. Established in 2004, S.O.C.S is committed to educating the public on the misconceptions and specific skin concerns that are common to skin of color. COSMEDIX will donate a portion of their proceeds to support the mission. The professional skincare brand will also donate product to Good360—a charitable organization that distributes excess goods to communities effected by hardship or natural disasters. 

This year, we are so excited to announce a FREE full week of digital events for Aestheticians! Sign up down below!

Unwind for National Relaxation Day

Finally, a day that lets the world relax and unwind from the other 364 busy, beautiful and (sometimes) chaotic days of the year! National Relaxation Day is a day dedicated to you—a day that encourages you to prioritize yourself while taking time to slow your roll and enjoy life’s little pleasures.

COSMEDIX prioritizes pamper and indulgence, as well as self care. We are proud to offer you luxurious and clean skin care products that help you feel like the best version of you. If you are looking for a few ways to take a deep breath, keep on scrolling for our skincare secrets:

Take a Bubble Bath

Nothing compliments a day of relaxation like a luxurious soak in the tub. Enwrap your senses in warm water and an intoxicating scent with a bubbly escape that helps reset and re-center the mind and spirit. Skin gurus praise the benefits of a warm bath, claiming that it aids in relaxation and can even brighten your mood. Whether myth or fact, COSMEDIX can get on board with anything that gives the body a good pamper. Light a candle and top off your bath with a head to toe exfoliation using the POLISH Dual-Action Body Scrub. This skin-invigorating physical and chemical exfoliating body scrub is infused with Eucalyptus, Grapefruit and Lavender and helps gently buff away dead skin cells for softer-looking skin that is buttery smooth.

Mask and Relax

Sit back and relax in a mask that is tailored to your skin type. COSMEDIX has specially formulated a variety of facemask skin care products that help brighten, nourish, smooth and clarify the look of skin. Simply choose the mask that caters to your skincare needs, then indulge in a mini at-home facial that pampers your complexion.

Hydrate: RESCUE Intense Hydrating Balm and Mask

Formulated with Shea Butter, Cherry and Willowherb Extract, this hydrating skin care mask can be used as a moisture quenching face mask or an overnight treatment. With a smooth, creamy texture, Rescue face mask helps protect the skin’s moisture barrier and helps reduce the look of redness on dry, chapped skin.

Refine: DETOX Activated Charcoal Mask

Everyone could benefit from a good Detox. This Activated Charcoal Mask is an uber-gentle, ultra-purifying mask that helps draw out dirt, oil and pore-clogging impurities as it helps smooth texture and restore a radiant-looking glow to the skin.

Firm: BIO-SHAPE Firming Face Mask

A moisturizing face mask infused with Oat Kernel Extract, Leaf Extract and powerful peptides to help plump the look of skin and reveal an overall smoother appearance. With an innovative “lifting” technology, BIO-SHAPE helps promote firmer-looking skin while helping reduce the look of wrinkles and refining the appearance of facial contours.

Cleanse: Clear Deep Cleansing Mask

Meet our secret weapon against skin imperfections—Clear. This top-rated Deep Cleansing Mask is formulated with kaolin clay, salicylic acid and sulfur to help gently exfoliate and trap excess oil and impurities that could potentially clog pores. Niacinamide, a form of vitamin B3, helps improve skin texture, while soothing natural botanicals help reduce the appearance of redness without leaving skin tight or dry. 

Give Yourself a Facial Massage

Some aestheticians say that a facial massage is both a balancing and therapeutic way to help ease the complexion while helping promote a healthier, firmer-looking appearance. An at-home facial massage typically consists of using a light to firm pressure across the skin and can be performed with your hands or a skincare tool. COSMEDIX loves to use the best-selling Rose Quartz Crystal Facial Roller to help roll away the look of tension, minimize the look of puffiness, and revitalize the look of the overall complexion. Simply start at the base of the neck, rolling upwards in a quick and firm motion. Repeat the same steps on both sides of the face, starting in the center and working your way up and outwards towards the hairline for a truly pampering experience.
