Exfoliating Magic

Okay Everyone!

It’s time for some #REALTALK

You have heard me say this MANY times…

Up to 70% of fine lines and wrinkles are caused by dead skin build up!!🤔YES. Shocking, but true.🤷‍♀️

Your skin is constantly regrowing and if you’re not removing the old before the new grows, you’ll be left with bunched up and wrinkly skin!

🙈Ideally, we should be exfoliating 1-3 times a week. When we remove that top layer of dead skin, it is not only preventing fine lines and wrinkles, but it is also allowing your products that you use afterwards to

ACTUALLY WORK!

🙌So, that serum or moisturizer you put on afterwards is actually going to hydrate YOUR SKIN rather than just sit on that top layer of dead skin.

🙌🏻Also, it will help your make up to have a smoother and polished finished- so long as you are using good quality make up!

😉Top recommendations for exfoliating:

🔸Mineral Rich Peeling Gel (for face)

Mineral-Rich Peeling Gel
A lightweight gel that provides gentle exfoliation for deep cleansing results. Apply to clean, dry skin and gently massage onto the face in circular motions for gentle exfoliation.

🔸 Salt and Oil Scrub (for neck down)

Salt & Oil Scrub
This luscious scrub is second to none when it comes to enveloping your skin in moisture. Just one try and you’ll be hooked to this exfoliating treatment that leaves skin feeling unbelievably silky smooth.

🔸 Salt Scrub (for neck down)

Salt Scrub
Get extra-deep with this as a scrub, or turn your tub into a spa by using it as a rejuvenating soak. However you use it, this powerful combination of Dead Sea salt, minerals, and oils will give your skin the attention it’s been longing for.

🔸Pure Salt Smoothing Body Exfoliator (neck down)

Pure Salt Smoothing Body Exfoliator
Rich, buttery-textured body peel is fortified with coarse mineral salts that gently exfoliate dead skin cells, leaving a smooth, refined finish. The nourishing salt blend helps to regenerate skin for a fresh, youthful and silky smooth sensation.

🤔Who already has one or more of these in your repertoire?!

🤔Who is going to add one in after this long and dry winter?!

Exfoliating can actually make you glow and will for sure brighten your skin.

Makeup Remover

An informative blog about proper make-up removal.

Not only does Seacret Direct Makeup Remover Wipes contain minerals from the Dead Sea, but it also include Cucumber Extract, Aloe Vera Extract, and Vitamin E to provide hydration and a smooth and soothing sensation.

It is important for people of all ages to take care of their skin. In the hectic modern lives we live, it is often too easy to neglect one’s health and well-being. The state of your skin says a lot about the state of your overall health, and with that in mind we have created a summary of how to properly remove make-up and cosmetics.

At the end of a busy day, it is difficult to resist the urge to go directly to bed without removing your make-up first. This is problematic for a number of reasons. Make-up tends to clog the pores of your skin, which can lead to significant skin problems. Your skin needs a chance to breathe, so it has the opportunity to regenerate itself. If you go to bed at night while still wearing your make-up, you are simply asking for trouble.

(Previous blogs: Facial care & Skincare Regimen )

You should begin by pulling your hair back and tying it in a ponytail. The best place to begin is with your eye make-up. Using a cotton ball or makeup wipes like Seacret Direct Makeup Remover Wipes that has been moistened with make-up remover, gently remove the make-up.  Be careful to avoid getting it in your eyes.

The next step is to perform a proper facial cleansing. There are a number of excellent products on the market today, so take some time and do some research about each of them. Test a couple of different products, and be sure that you end up with one that is ideal for your skin type. Place a small amount of your chosen cleanser into the palm of your hand, and lather it on your moistened face.

During this stage of your daily cleansing routine, you should pay special attention to cleansing the areas where your make-up was applied. It is best to use lukewarm water, as it will assist in the breakdown of your make-up and will ensure that your cleanser is able to reach its optimal lather. Take your time, and be sure you don’t miss any of the areas where make-up was applied. Rinse with warm water at the appropriate time, and be sure to remove all of the cleanser. When you have completed this step, do it again. Pat your face dry with a clean towel.

Proper facial cleansing is a simple procedure, but if it is not done regularly and in the proper manner your skin can become damaged. As we have said, your skin needs to be able to breath to maintain optimal health and regenerate itself. Try to incorporate a proper cleansing into your bedtime routine. Your skin will thank you for it.

We cleanse, balance nourish and moisturize our face twice a day and add the extra step of exfoliate/ treat (mask) once a week. If you have never exfoliate/ treat (mask) your skin, you will feel a tingling sensation and/or redness due to the product removing the dead skin. Make sure your toner is water base.

Dead Sea Mud

Dead Sea Mud:

Benefits and Uses
Improves skin conditions
Reduces skin impurities
Provides relief for arthritis
Soothes back discomfort
Treats acne

The Dead Sea is a salt water lake in the Middle East, located between Israel and Jordan. The geographical features of the Dead Sea — including the fact that the lake is at the lowest sea level of any body of water on earth and surrounded by mountains — makes the surrounding silt and mud rich with a unique combination of minerals like magnesium, sodium, and potassium.

People use Dead Sea mud to treat health conditions ranging from psoriasis to back pain. A great deal of research backs up claims that Dead Sea mud can relieve discomfort, reduce redness, soreness and more.

1. Helps improve skin conditions such as psoriasis:
Researchers have established that the high concentrations of salt and other chemical compounds in the mud can be used to treat psoriasis effectively. Dead Sea mud can be applied as a compress to psoriasis flares.

Using Dead Sea mud as a mud compress in areas where your psoriasis or psoriatic arthritis is, can decrease symptoms and relieve discomfort caused by flare ups.

2. Reduces skin impurities:
If you have dry skin, try a Dead Sea mud mask. Mud masks can work to remove impurities and dead skin on your body.

An added benefit of Dead Sea mud is that the salt and magnesium in it can improve your skin’s functionality by making it a better barrier and more elastic. Dead Sea salt has also been shown as a treatment to make skin healthier.

3. Provides back relief:
In one older experiment, heated mud packs were applied to the extremities of people with arthritis for 20 minutes, once per day, over a span of 2 weeks. This study used Dead Sea mud and people saw a marked decrease in their arthritis symptoms that lasted up to three months.

4. Helps soothe chronic discomfort:
Data from a 2014 study indicated that a Dead Sea mud compress applied five times a week for three consecutive weeks, led to a significant improvement in symptoms for people with chronic lower back pain. Further research is still needed with a greater sample size to confirm these findings.

5. Helps treat blemishes:
Dead Sea mud has been tested and proven to have an antimicrobial effect on strains of bacteria that live on human skin. Since overgrowth or presence of certain bacteria can lead to acne, it’s possible that this is why Dead Sea mud has been used to treat breakouts since biblical times.

Using Dead Sea mud in a mud mask, or getting face creams and lotions that contain Dead Sea mud, might help you to have fewer breakouts.

There are some people who have skin sensitivities to metals, such as nickel and chrome. Since trace elements of some metals can sometimes be found in Dead Sea mud, people with these sensitivities might want to avoid using Dead Sea mud as a topical treatment or home remedy. But research indicates that most people with healthy skin don’t need to be concerned about using Dead Sea mud on their skin.

Dead Sea mud isn’t a replacement for prescription medication for diagnosed conditions. But it is a very low-risk way to treat some conditions, boost skin health, and is safe for most people.

Dead Sea mud has been proven to have antimicrobial and other properties that make it useful in mud packs and cosmetics. If you’re worried about a sensitivity, talk to your doctor or a dermatologist before using a Dead Sea mud product. Always be sure to test a small area of your skin before applying any new product.

SkinCare Regimen

You are eating better. Feeling Energized. Let’s make sure your face feels fabulous.

Last year, we blogged about Facial Care; If you don’t wash your face daily, your face ages 3-5 times. We wash our faces twice a day and alternate exfoliate/treat (mask) once a week. We are going to share our facial regimen:

  1. Cleanse
    • Wet your skin and circular motions. Gently massage the cleanser onto appropriate area of your face. Afterwards, rinse thoroughly. 
  2. Exfoliate
    • After cleansing, use an exfoliating product and gently scrub in circular motions. Gently rinse off any product that is left over (recommended once a week).
  3. Treat (Mask)
    • Apply the mask to your face and allow to set (recommended time is in the directions). After the mask has dried for the appropriate mount of time, gently scrub in circular motion. Gently rinse off any product that is left over (recommended once a week).
  4. Balance (Toner)
    • Add an extra touch to cleansing with a toner; which helps restore the balance of the skin’s pH and removes any excess oil or dirt that cleansing missed. 
  5. Nourish (Serum)
    • For additional hydration and nutrition; serums slide in between the cleansing and the moisturizing steps of your regimen. After Cleansing, use your finger tips to evenly apply a small amount of product to the area that is targeted for. Then apply the moisturizer afterwards. 
  6. Moisturize 
    • The last step in a regimen would be to moisturize. Use our favorite moisturizer to keep your face hydrated. Put a small amount on your fingers and massage into your skin in a circular motions, adding more product if needed. 

Some people make skip these two regimens due to the feeling. However, it is recommended because the toner removes the excess oil or dirt that wasn’t removed from cleansing Exfoliating/Mask removes the dead skin. For example, the skin analogy of Raisins, Cork flakes and Grapes.
