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!

Make SPF Your BFF

With the summer months comes more time in the sun at outside cookouts, beach dates, festival fun and relaxing days by the pool. The sun can bring so much fun to our summer days, but it can wreak havoc on our skin: sunburns, hyperpigmentation, sun spots, dehydration and even more serious consequences. The bottom line—you need SPF every single day to help keep your skin protected from the harmful sun rays, whether you’re enjoying the summer weather outside or you’re in the office. Hydrate+ Broad Spectrum SPF 17 Moisturizing Sunscreen and Peptide Rich Defense Moisturizer with Broad Spectrum SPF 50 Sunscreen add a skin-nourishing barrier to the skin that not only helps block the sun, but also soothes and hydrates your complexion after experiencing sun damage.

On top of protecting you from harsh UVA + UVB rays, Hydrate+ works to visibly plump the skin while improving elasticity and loss of radiance. Using Hydrate+ helps give your complexion a firmer look, improving the look of fine lines and wrinkles for a more youthful appearance. To get the best results, apply Hydrate+ every day 15 minutes before being exposed to the sun, giving the moisturizer time to soak into your skin and work its magic!

Peptide Rich Defense SPF 50 blocks 98% of UVB rays, which are the rays that cause sunburns. Because of its broad spectrum protection, this bestselling moisturizer also blocks UVA rays—these rays penetrate the skin deeper, leading to wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and sun spots. Loaded with skin-loving peptides and antioxidants, Peptide-Rich Defense helps replenish moisture loss and reverse visible signs of aging while protecting your skin from the sun’s harmful rays—making it a customer favorite for years.

Summer days shouldn’t come to a screeching halt because of the sun. Hydrate+ SPF 17 and Peptide-Rich Defense SPF 50 help you take control of your summer skin—so you can enjoy the weather while staying hydrated, glowing and uber-protected!

Meet Surge Hyaluronic Acid Booster

Sometimes our skin just needs a pick-me-up—a product that not only makes our complexions look healthy, youthful and radiant, but one that actually transforms them from the inside out with intense hydration and good-for-your-skin ingredients. Look no further than Surge, our new Hyaluronic Acid Booster. Formulated for all skin types, this ultra-dewy, uber-nourishing serum penetrates deep into the skin to restore hydration, plump the look of fine lines and wrinkles, reduce the look of uneven texture and promote elasticity. Sounds pretty great, right? Let’s take a deeper dive into our newest launch and the ingredients that power it, including hyaluronic acid, kiwi fruit water and niacinamide. 

Hyaluronic Acid 

We all recognize hyaluronic acid as a buzzworthy skincare ingredient, but what exactly does it do? Hyaluronic acid is naturally made in our bodies to help our skin retain moisture, keeping it hydrated, glowing and healthy. With the moisture it locks in, the skin stays supple, reducing the look of lines and wrinkles. Surge gives your complexion an extra dose of hyaluronic acid in a super lightweight formula that penetrates deep into the skin to hydrate multiple layers at once. Say hello to moisture that lasts – not just a one-time hydrating fix.  

Kiwi Fruit Water & Niacinamide

Surge is also formulated with kiwi fruit water, which is rich in skin-brightening vitamin C. Kiwi fruit water is full of healthy antioxidants and nutrients that give your skin a radiant, youthful-looking glow while helping to reduce the look of uneven skin tone and visibly brightening the complexion. Combine it with Niacinamide, another active ingredient in Surge, to transform skin texture, tone and barrier function. When working in tandem, these skin-loving ingredients pack a powerful punch and manage to take years off your complexion, leaving your skin looking and feeling vibrant and healthy.

If your skin needs a brightening boost, a burst of hydration or just a good old-fashioned pick-me-up, add Surge to your daily routine! 

All About Oils

Oils are used time after time to help rejuvenate the look of tired skin, but they can be a bit intimidating to some. From familiar oils like jojoba and argan, to newly trending oils like moringa, these powerhouse ingredients help hydrate, sooth and fight signs of aging for a more radiant, youthful-looking complexion. Nothing to be scared of here!

Each oil commonly found in skin care products has its own unique properties and benefits for your skin. Jojoba oil helps decrease the look of acneic breakouts and helps repair damage caused by acne. If your skin is dry all over or in patches, argan oil is full of vitamin E and omega fatty acids that moisturize, moisturize, moisturize! Olive oil is a powerful antioxidant that helps soothe skin after being exposed to UVB rays and helps prevent signs of aging. Safflower oil is also full of vitamin E and omega 6 fatty acids that fight the signs of aging and helps decrease the look of fine lines and wrinkles.

One of the oils we’re most excited about recently is moringa. Moringa oil contains all nine essential amino acids, making it a powerhouse ingredient for your skin that protects it from environmental stressors. The moringa plant has risen to a higher status in the past few years, both in the beauty and culinary industries, and is quickly making its way up the “superfood” ladder. Its leaves are full of potassium, iron and B6 and its seeds are pressed to create the anti-inflammatory and moisturizing oil we all know and love. Moringa oil also helps remove debris from pores, helps clear bothersome breakouts and decreases puffiness.

Which products in our line contain these nourishing, uber-hydrating oils, you ask? Purity Solution Nourishing Deep Cleansing Oil has a powerful combination of moringa, olive and argan oils to soothe and condition your skin while giving it a deep clean. Even though Purity Detox Scrub is a powder, jojoba oil is used to help naturally polish away pore-clogging debris, keeping your complexion smooth and clear. Remedy Omega-Complex Treatment Oil is full of safflower oil to help you achieve the look of nourished, radiant skin.

How to Spot Treat

Our complexions are not always perfect and every now and then we get blemishes that dampen our skincare goals. Sometimes time won’t allow for a full facial or spa visit to clear it all up. That’s when you need to grab those products that can be applied directly to the affected area without over drying or irritating the already agitated acne. Clarity Skin Clarifying Serum and Clear Deep Cleansing Mask make acne spot treating easier and safer.

Clarity Skin Clarifying Serum exfoliates congested skin and draws out impurities from clogged pores that cause bothersome breakouts and uneven skin tones. Just a small amount of Clarity on the infected area can help clear up your acne. Clarity is full of acne-fighting ingredients but two powerful ingredients that help give you more effective spot treatments for those emergency, unexpected blemishes are retinol and salicylic acid. Both are great exfoliants that help remove impurities and keep acne in check. Retinol can be intimidating but in small doses, this form of Vitamin A helps reduce the appearance of oil which causes breakouts. Salicylic acid unclogs pores without drying out the skin and retains much-needed moisture to keep the appearance of your skin healthy and youthful.

Clear Deep Cleansing Mask pulls out pore impurities that cause blemishes and unhealthy complexions. One of the most effective ingredients that make up the formula for this mask is Niacinamide. Niacinamide improves your skin’s texture, condition and retain moisture for the appearance of healthier skin. Other ingredients include soothing botanicals that help calm inflammations and kaolin clay, salicylic acid and sulfur to help balance oil production to reduce the likelihood of future breakouts. Breakouts can create and leave behind redness that makes for a blotchy appearance and acne spotting Clarity to the irritated areas will help dry up and remove skin blemishes. With a small amount on the breakout spot, your skin will appear clearer and healthier. 

Targeting breakouts with products that are made with effective ingredients can keep your skin healthy and blemish free. Clarity and Clear soothe and calm complexion agitations with just a dab of product on the direct place of irritation. The tea tree oil in their formulas helps soothe problematic skin and keep breakouts manageable and far away. Using them daily can help you keep your focus away from acne and on having the times of your life!

Father’s Day: Men’s Skincare Gift Guide

Father’s Day is almost here, and we must make taking care of dads a priority in our lives. They deserve all the gifts and treats we can gift them and what’s better than products that will pamper them and give them a boost of beard and skin confidence?

COSMEDIX knows that most dads are low maintenance and may not think much about skin and beard care. That’s why we’ve chosen to keep it simple to keep their bathroom mirror time at a minimal.

If dad needs some exfoliation action for his pores, Clarity is the perfect fit for his skincare routine. The serum helps remove pore-clogging impurities and exfoliates leaving him with a smoother complexion that even he will notice. Vitamin A, willowherb, aloe vera and tea tree oil will wake up his pores and help give him more youthful-looking skin. There are no harsh ingredients that will irritate, flake or dehydrate his skin and it will reduce the appearance of oil. 

If he needs a little relaxation time, Clear Deep Cleansing Mask will give him at least 5 – 10 minutes of at-home spa time when he has to leave the mask on to do its work. Clear draws out skin impurities that are clogging up his pores and helps balance oil production with a stellar combination of salicylic acid, sulfur and kaolin clay. When soothing botanicals come together in one mask, you don’t only get rid of the appearance of redness, the calming effects will take him away from all the dad duties … at least for 10 minutes!

As Seen in Causebox: Glow Bamboo Brightening Mask

With summer just around the corner, our bodies aren’t the only thing we’re scrambling to get into shape—our skin needs some love, too. How exactly do you get your skin into summer-ready shape, you ask? The dewy, radiant, clear and healthy-looking shape we all crave? Give it some Glow. 

Glow is a nutrient-rich Bamboo Brightening Mask that doubles as a gentle exfoliating scrub and is packed with ingredients to help reduce the appearance of uneven skin tone and lackluster skin. Say goodbye to dead surface cells that take away your vibrance and let your glow shine through.

Glow lives up to its name by helping to wake up your complexion with a combination of skin-loving ingredients that work together to help improve texture and reveal smoother, more luminous-looking skin. Bamboo Stem Extract helps revive your skin with gentle exfoliation, allowing vitamin C to penetrate deep into the skin and work its brightening magic. The phenomenon of Glow has even caught the attention of the quarterly subscription company, Causebox. Last month, Glow was shared with its customers.

Glow has built quite the glowing reputation for itself. Don’t take our word for it—see what our customers are saying about Glow!
