Dealing with Dry Winter Skin

All right, it’s October now and you know what that means—winter is creeping up on us! If your skin is prone to dryness, you know how harsh winter can be on your skin. The cold air and bitter wind causes peeling, flaking, and very thirsty skin. During this time of year it is extremely important that you adjust your skincare routine to help prevent your skin from drying out, and instead, keep it happy and hydrated. If your skin is naturally dry to begin with, it is critical that you stay ahead of winter and give your skin the moisture it desperately needs. It is the time to prepare yourself in order to prevent irritating dry skin from plaguing you this season!

Dry skin doesn’t have to be an issue! If you are using the right products in your skincare routine, you can combat dry skin and keep it from causing you problems. If you don’t know where to begin, we can help you. At Skin Perfection we want you to have the best products to help your skin specifically. Check out our product recommendations for dry skin. We recommend products that are specifically aimed to target dry skin and help keep it perfectly hydrated. Cleansers, toners, exfoliators, masks, serums, and moisturizers are all recommended just for your skin type. We even provide recommendations for other, more specific concerns you may have (such as crow’s feet, dull complexion, large pores, etc.), that way you are getting your dry skin the hydration it needs while also fighting other skin imperfections.

Having a good skincare routine is the way to keep your skin healthy and beautiful. It is important that you learn exactly what kind of products you need for your skin type. The more personalized your skincare routine is, the more effective it will be. With all the different skin types that exist, no product will be perfect for every person. If you understand your skin, it makes it easier to know what products and ingredients to look for and which ones to avoid. To create your perfect beauty regimen, simply look at our list of recommended products and pick the ones that meet your specific needs. If you are unsure about what skin type you are, try taking our quiz to find out! Answer a few simple questions, and we will direct you to our best suggestion based on your answers. By learning more about your skin, you will be better equipped to make educated decisions regarding the health of your skin.

As the seasons change, making educated skincare decisions becomes increasingly important. Each season is different and they do different things to your skin. As mentioned earlier, winter is approaching, and that typically means drier skin than usual. If you prepare yourself now with a well-thought-out skincare routine, you will be able to prevent winter from causing your skin any issues.

Matrixyl 3000, The Future of Anti-Aging Skin Care.

If you research anti-aging skin care ingredients, you are likely to find Matrixyl 3000 among the top ones listed. If you aren’t familiar with this ingredient, here is what you need to know:

Matrixyl 3000 is an anti-aging peptide. A peptide is a protein that made up of a chain of amino acids. These peptides occur naturally in our skin. As our bodies age, the production of these natural peptides is decreased, which causes sign of aging in our skin. Matrixyl and other anti-aging peptides can be used to take the place of these natural peptides our skin is now missing to provide us with more youthful skin.

Matrixyl 3000 also helps stimulate the production of collagen, another natural protein found in our skin. Again, as we age the production of collagen is significantly decreased. Collagen keeps the skin looking full, plump, and youthful. When our skin is damaged, collagen works to fix the problem. When we are young collagen works quickly to repair the skin and keep it looking great, but as our collagen production is reduced, damaged skin is not as easily fixed. This causes sagging, wrinkles, and other imperfections in our skin. Matrixyl steps up to increase this production to assist your skin in producing the collagen it needs to stay looking young and beautiful.

Matrixyl 3000 even helps to nourish and moisturize the skin by encouraging the production of Hyaluronic Acid in our skin. HA is another substance found in our skin that helps support the layers of skin and keep them hydrated. It helps lock in moisture and hydrate deep in the skin to provide a refreshed and full complexion. By increasing the amount of HA your skin makes, Matrixyl 3000 helps give you softer, suppler skin.

Because Matrixyl 3000 has the power to do all of these things, using it noticeably decreases the look multiple signs of aging—wrinkles will be less noticeable, complexion will be softer and smoother, skin tone will be even with less discolorations, sagging skin will feel much firmer, and dry skin will be left feeling incredibly hydrated.

One skincare ingredient can give you all of these benefits! And even better, Matrixyl 3000 is safe to use on all types of skin, including sensitive skin. It won’t irritate or cause harm to the skin; it is a gentle, but powerful ingredient. And if you have acne-prone skin, it isn’t a problem either. Matrixyl 3000 actually assists in diminishing the look of impurities like blemishes. Your skin will feel beautiful and vibrant no matter what skin type you are.

How could one ingredient do so much? Matrixyl 3000 is a truly impressive skincare ingredient with a reputation to back it up. Studies have been done to conclude that Matrixyl 3000 is in fact effective in improving aging skin. Look for products containing highconcentrations of Matrixyl, or try adding Matrixyl 3000 directly in to one of your favorite serums or moisturizers for an extra anti-aging boost.

Happy Father's Day! Organic Anti Aging Skin Care For Men

Skin care isn’t just for women. Men are equally susceptible to the effects of the sun, photo-aging, wrinkles and discoloration. Unfortunately, many men don’t think about taking care of their skin, but this Father’s Day, you can think about it for them. Here at skin Perfection, we take skin care for everyone very seriously, and we have something for everyone—no matter if you’re a man or a woman, young or old, adult or child!

The basis or any skin care regimen has to begin with a cleanser. If the man in your life refuses to do anything else except wash his face, you can provide just the right cleanser to keep his skin clean, healthy and younger looking. If he’s prone to acne, breakouts or has oily skin, try our Clarifying Cleanser. Made from organic extracts and vitamins, it will deep clean and leave his skin cleaner and less prone to breakouts.

For sensitive, combination or sun damaged skin, try our Moisturizing Cleanser. With its creamy texture infused with Organic Aloe, pomegranate and rooibos tea, it will leave his skin soft, smooth, clean, soothed and nourished.

Another easy skin care product is sunscreen—don’t let him leave home without it, especially for those long days on the golf course! Our products are safe for all skin types, free of harsh chemicals, and completely affordable. Drop a can of 30 SPF in his gym bag and you’ll be surprised when he actually uses it!

We don’t expect miracles, so start slow, but skin care isn’t just for women these days! From our body scrub to acne care, there is a plethora of product types to choose from—and your man will be amazed at the changes he’ll see with even the most basic skin care routine.

Summer is Here! FDA Approved Organic Sunscreen!

Summer is in full swing in most parts of the country. To many, this means long days by the pool, vacations at the sea, amusement parks and myriad other outdoor activities. While most of us don’t usually consider their skin planning their vacations and other outdoor plans, if your summer revolves around being in the sun a lot, you need to think about how to protect your skin.

Sunscreen is the simplest solution, but if you’ve ever stood in front of the sun care aisle at your favorite drug store, you know there isn’t just a huge disparity in price, there are literally dozens of manufacturers, product types, ingredients, and, most confusing of all, a huge difference in SPF.

SPF stands for Sun Protection Factor, and it is a laboratory measure of the effectiveness of sunscreen. Essentially, the higher the SPF, the more protection it offers against the sun’s rays. However, what isn’t widely known is that after SPF 30, the amount of protection wanes considerably. When you use SPF 30, only 1/30 of the sun’s rays reach your skin, which means you are protected against 97% of the rays. However, SPF 60 doesn’t mean you’re twice as protected. The chemical details of how this works can be a little mind-numbing, but generally speaking, although there IS more protection in a higher SPF, it’s not always necessary. The most important thing is to make sure to apply it about 15 minutes before exposure to the sun and to reapply every two hours of so.

Here at Skin Perfection, we offer FDA-approved, organic sunscreen that will protect you from the harmful rays that encourage photo aging (which makes us look older much more quickly!) without using chemicals, toxins, nano particles or parabens! Instead, it’s infused with green tea, Vitamins A and E, and zinc and titanium oxides! So if you want to protect your skin from the potentially cancer-causing UVA and UVB rays, as well as premature wrinkles and other signs of aging, without using harsh ingredients, check out our SPF 30 and SPF 50 here!
