Skincare Tips

11 must DO's:

1. TAKE a “TIME OUT”: Decompress your mind and body by applying the calming Theraderma Skin Recovery Mask on your face and then sinking into a warm bath. After your relaxing bath hydrate your body with Theraderma Black Currant Berry Mint Body Cream. Add a few drops of the Theraderma Velvet Body Nourishing Seaweed Oil for extra moisturizing....your skin will feel silky, velvety soft. Now that’s a “spa treatment” you can give yourself right in the comfort of your own bathroom.
2. PROTECT your SKIN from the SUN: Sun exposure can be very damaging to the skin and speed up the aging process. Apply a sunscreen on your face every day after moisturizing. I recommend Bio Jouvance 4 IN 1 Sunscreen SPF 50 or Bio Jouvance 5 IN 1 Sunscreen SPF50 Tinted.
3. Do a BASIC SKINCARE ROUTINE Morning and night: cleansing, anti aging serum, moisturizing. Use high quality professional skincare products. Avoid drugstore “over the counter brands”. - yes, they're less expensive, but for the most part they use mild ingredients. Add exfoliating and a weekly mask to your routine for more skincare benefits.
4. NO TOUCHING Avoid touching your face throughout the day. Your fingers can transfer germs and bacteria onto the face and cause breakouts. After cleansing your face apply a astringent-toner to keep pores clear of imbedded debris and/or makeup. Theraderma Ginseng Astringent Toner is excellent for normal-combination or dry skin type. Oily-Acne skin use Theraderma Eucalyptus Astringent, fights bacteria and dries up blemishes. Also, don’t forget to clean your makeup brushes every week to keep them bacteria free!
5. SLEEP: Get 7-8 hours of sleep every night. Be sure to go to bed with a clean face and always apply a night cream to nourish your skin cells as they rejuvenate while you sleep. Theraderma Bio Effective cream is our #1 selling night cream.
6. WATER: Drink as much water as possible throughout the day. This will keep your skin hydrated and clear. A facial moisturizer is essential to keep the moisture balance for your skin whether you are dry or oily.
7. EXERCISE: Do you exercise at least 3 times a week? If not…..just do it! You will feel so much better because exercise will distress you and also remove toxins from your skin. After exercise and before you shower remove more toxins from your skin with the Volcanic Ash Mineral Clay Mud Mask.

8. DIET: After exercising you are hungry……eat lots of fresh vegetables, fruits and nuts. All are high in vitamins and antioxidants that help your skin stay healthy with a luminous glow. A topical Vitamin C serum will also strengthen your skin. One of our favorites is Theraderma Vitamin C Serum.
9. CAFFEINE AND ALCOHOL: Avoid excessive caffeine and alcohol, which cause dehydrated skin, puffy, tired-looking eyes and premature fine lines. For extra eye care check out Theraderma Under Eye & Neck cream. A weekly eye mask will shrink puffy eyes and smooth out fine lines and wrinkles. Check it out Volcanic Ash Mineral Eye & Lip Clay Mud Mask.
10. VITAMINS: Take your daily vitamins - especially C, A, D, and E to help maintain good skin and overall health. You can apply these vitamins topically on your skin with Theraderma VitaPlex C cream. a rich yet lightweight formula for a smoothing, lightening, and antioxidant skin treatment. Contains vitamins C, A, D, B5 and E.

11. PORE SIZE: You wake up one morning and your pores are suddenly bigger. Wondering why? As you age and loose collagen, the supporting structure around your pores diminishes, causing them to get larger. Doing a good homecare regimen can increase collagen production. Exfoliate daily with a gentle scrub or mask 1-3 times a week with a exfoliating mask. Clean pores equal tinier pores so try a glycolic acid homecare product or a skin refining serum daily to minimize pore size.
