  • Combat Sun Damage And Keep Your Skin Looking Young

    Though everyone wants to have sun-kissed skin, over time, repeated tanning could do more harm then good. The sun emits harmful UVA and UVB rays that actually kill your skin cells. As your skin seeks to protect itself from sun damage, it produces more melatonin, which gives you the tanned look. However, as you age, this constant cycle of damage and melatonin production takes a toll on your skin, causing wrinkles, moles, and sunspots. It is not only the sun but also tanning beds that account for premature aging as well as a heightened risk of skin cancer.

    SkinDirect’s personal esthetician recommends the following products to help you combat and reverse the signs of aging. StriVectin Get Even Brightening Serum exfoliates your skin to reveal the healthy glow of youthful skin. It smoothes away dry patches, brightening your skin while you sleep. With plant-based exfoliants and botanical brighteners, it is gentle enough to be used every night to reduce wrinkles and eliminate the signs of aging. This lightweight formula delivers dramatic results.

    During the day, apply Glytone Antioxidant Anti-Aging Cream to protect your skin from the harmful destruction caused by free radicals. Formulated with high concentrations of free glycolic acid and red tea flavonoids, this cream works all day long to reverse the effects of sun damage and aging. It also boasts the healing and smoothing properties of Vitamin E.

    Use both of these amazing products from SkinDirect to thoroughly protect and care for your skin each day. They are most beneficial and effective when used together. SkinDirect’s esthetician advises that you make them a part of your nighttime and daytime skin care routine to ward off the effects of aging.

  • Fix Those Pesky, Dark Circles Under Your Eyes

    Fatigue, genetics, and diet all contribute to every woman’s worst nightmare – dark circles under our eyes. For some of us, even the faintest bit of fatigue results in bags and circles that no amount of concealer can hide from the world. Here at SkinDirect, our esthetician knows how difficult it can be to treat them. That’s why we’ve put together a list of products that are guaranteed to help you look better, feel better, and present a bright, shining face to the world!

    The skin under the eyes is very thin, and blood vessels show through thinner skin very easily. When the blood isn’t oxygenated enough, such as when we are fatigued, it becomes a darker shade of blue or purple closer to the skin. This causes the appearance of dark under eye circles.

    HydroPeptide Anti-Wrinkle Dark Circle Concentrate is the perfect solution for dark circles! The ingredients in this fantastic formula work to increase circulation in the skin nearest the eyes, resulting in significant lightening of dark tissue over time.

    SkinDirect’s personal esthetician also recommends Goldfaden Bright Eyes, which is literally packed with botanicals, antioxidants, soy peptides and vitamin K. These ingredients visibly brighten under eye skin while fighting to prevent recurrent circles.

    Neova Eye Therapy is another fabulous option to correct dark under eye skin. This product not only treats the discoloration, it also treats the puffiness around the delicate eye area to restore youthful looking skin to any age group!

    With these products available from SkinDirect, we can stop caking on the concealer and start fighting those pesky under eye circles from the inside out!

  • Rejuvenate Your Skin with Facial Masks

    A facial mask is a luxurious way to clean or smooth your face. A creamy “mask” of product is applied to the face, allowed to penetrate deeply and even dry, and then either peeled off or rinsed with warm water to remove. Facial masks generally contain ingredients like vitamins, minerals, and fruit oils and extracts to refresh, refine, and rejuvenate your skin. There are several different reasons why women opt to use facial masks, including deep-cleaning, healing, and brightening the skin. No matter what the reason, SkinDirect’s personal esthetician can recommend the perfect facial mask for your needs.

    For cleansing and the ultimate brightening experience, try 100% Pure Brightening Scrub and Mask. All natural ingredients including licorice, strawberry and even sake work together to both rejuvenate your skin and exfoliate and result in cleaner, visibly brighter skin.

    If you are looking to remove impurities from your skin, our esthetician recommends Astara Blue Flame Purification Mask. All-natural, detoxifying and antibiotic properties help diminish blemishes, remove excess oil and remove environmental pollutants from the pores.

    For ultra-hydration and moisture try Juara Avocado Banana Moisturize Mask. Fruit extracts in this creamy leave-on mask leave skin feeling smooth and supple while providing a huge dose of hydration that won’t clog your pores.

    No matter what your skin type, we here at SkinDirect have the perfect facial mask for you. Kick back, relax and enjoy a spa treatment in the comfort of your own home with any of these fabulous facial mask products!
