Summer is just around the corner. While you may be starting to diet and exercise to prepare for that summer bikini, consider adding a regimen for your skin to get in summer shape as well. Your skin is the first thing people see when they meet you. Ensure that this summer is free of dark spots, bumps and discolorations!

Cleanse

To start your summer prep, keep your skin nice and clean to avoid acne and blemishes from distracting from your natural beauty. Summer will include lots of makeup free days at the pool and while sweating during those hot days. You’ll want to keep your skin blemish free so you don’t have to worry about a zit or waterproof cover-up. To keep skin smooth and even, try exfoliating at least once or twice a week. Exfoliating helps remove dead skin cells, dirt and oils that clog pores and create breakouts and blackheads. Our most popular natural exfoliating soap bar is the My Natural Beauty Olive Oil Soap. This gentle yet powerful exfoliator contains aloe vera, shea butter and of course olives for a smooth and radiant complexion on the face or body!

Toners

Still feel oily after cleansing your skin? With the increased summer heat, skin oils reproduce at a much quicker rate leaving skin more susceptible to oils and dirt remaining trapped on the skin. To help close pores and ensure skin is completely clean, try adding a toner during the summer months to reduce oils and balance the complexion. Our Toner Astringent with Alpha Hydroxy Acid helps to regenerate dead skin for a brighter, even tone. Our Sensitive Line Antiseptic Cleanser is perfect for easily-irritated skin types. Use this toner to calm and soothe the skin for a relaxed and refreshed feel.

Hyperpigmentation

Worrying about those dark spots or discolorations on the body? You’ve been able to hide all winter underneath your clothing and now its time to show your beautiful skin! Maximize your skin glow with Clear Essence dark spot correctors and toning lotions! Get rid of pesky marks and scars with the NEW Clear Essence Exclusive Medicated Fade Creme! Dark marks on the body such as dark spots on the face and hands, age spots, acne scars and sun damage are gently diminished. Looking to treat larger areas such as elbows, knees, bikini area or heels? Our Platinum Line Skin Beautifying Milk has been the tried and true solution for over 30 years for achieving an even, toned, flawless skin tone. Apply twice a day for 4-6 weeks to notice an improved appearance. That means, start now while there’s still a few weeks till summer!!

Stretch Marks

Like hyperpigmentation, many of us can be self-conscious when it comes to stretch marks. The first thing we want to say is embrace them! Everyone has them. Stretch marks are simply the growth signs that come with being an adult. However, to help soften and reduce the appearance of stretch marks, we recommend hydrating the skin daily with a repairing body oil. Body oils soften and smooth the skin for a plumped appearance. Using Clear Essence Body Oils also replenishes the skin with natural vitamins and essential plant and fruit extracts for a refined and even complexion. Check out the Sensitive Line Moisturizing Body Oil which contains shea butter and sesame seed oil for a moisturized skin tone. For added vitamins our Specialist Skin Care Body Oil contains Vitamins A & E to repair discolorations and regenerate collagen to the skin.

Sunscreen

Once you’ve achieved your desired skin tone make sure to apply plenty of sunscreen all summer long to prevent tan lines and uneven patches of skin. Damage to your skin tone is also dangerous as it can potentially result in skin cancer at a later stage in life. Clear Essence now offers a two-in-one formula of its Platinum Line Skin Beautifying Milk w/ SPF 15! This dual formula helps correct discolorations while also protecting the skin from the sun. Coming soon: Clear Essence Exclusive Medicated Fade Creme w/ SPF 15 will correct small dark spots on the face, hands or scars on the body again with added sun protection to prevent redarkening and new discolorations.

Sunscreen

The sun hugs closer to the Earth this time of year so it is even more important to apply sunscreen every single day!

Valentine’s Day is fast approaching, and it is never too soon to start adding proper skin care to your daily regimen, especially if you want smooth, touchable skin just in time for your V-Day date. Here are a few important tips for your skin to keep in mind before your date and as a regular part of your routine.

 

 

Exfoliation

Dull, dead looking skin is never a beauty goal for African American skin care. Exfoliation is a way for us to avoid bumpy, scaly looking skin. Exfoliation allows us to remove the dead cells that sit on the top layer of our skin. Once these dead cells are gone, it allows for our natural glowing complexion to shine through. Use a Clear Essence soap bar to gently exfoliate the skin and remove bumps and rough skin. For soft, hydrated skin try the My Natural Beauty Olive Oil Soap which moisturizes while exfoliating.

 

Hydrating Your Skin

When you hop out the shower does your skin feel extra dry and tight? Add a body oil for instant hydration that absorbs into skin and makes it extra soft! Our Sensitive Line Moisturizing Body Oil not only promotes a healthy skin tone and smoother texture, this essential natural oil also can be used to begin the process of achieving an even-toned glow and brighter complexion. It’s important to keep your skin moisturized. And don’t forget those hard to reach places or easily dried out areas such as hands, feet, knuckles and elbows! You want the entire body to be soft to the touch for your Valentine! The Clear Essence Sensitive Line Texturizing Complexion Lotion is a light textured yet highly effective moisturizer. It is an easy to use lotion that restores the skins natural mechanical barrier, locks in moisture and reduces transepidermal water loss. This full body lotion gives the skin a natural supple feel and reinvigorates the epidermis protecting the skin from harsh weather and reducing the dryness that causes ashy skin. Now on sale for only $5.50!!

Why not pamper your “babe” by providing them with products that will celebrate their masculine strength. ChiMere Skin Care for Men offers healthy and natural men’s skin care products that specialize in men’s grooming & skin care solutions. The ChiMere for Men Grooming Set effectively gives a complete shaving regimen for men of color as it includes two cleansers, a shave gel and after shave treatment.

When it comes to your skin one to two products won’t do everything you need. From face, body and treatment products, there’s a few staples that should remain in your cabinet year-round to ensure perfect skin throughout all seasons. Here’s the 5 skin care essentials that should be apart of your daily and weekly skin care routine. Luckily all the items we’re mentioning below are affordable as well! Each item retails under $8 so you can get your flawless skin on a budget! Read on for our tips.

Sunscreen – Apply Daily, reapply every 2-3 hours of direct sunlight

Even in the winter, skin should remain protected from UV rays and sun damage. Clear Essence® My Natural Beauty Moisturizing Body Lotion with SPF 15 is an ultra-lightweight, virtually invisible natural sunscreen offering SPF 15 protection. This silky lotion is incredibly comfortable, even for sensitive skin types, this product forms a protective veil to prevent darkening or discolorations from UV rays.

Exfoliating Cleanser – At least once a week

Exfoliating your skin regularly helps to rid the body of dead skin cells that build up and cause the complexion to look dull and discolored. You can increase the number of types you exfoliate for an even brighter, more even tone. The Platinum Line Complexion Soap for Normal Skin is an all-over body complexion bar which can be used as a face wash for acne on normal to dry skin. This soap bar is uniquely formulated to maximize the performance of other Clear Essence® dark spot correcting products.

Dark Spot Corrector – Twice a day

Once you damage your skin whether from acne breakouts or sun damage, a dark spot can appear on the skin and leave you with discolorations that are hard to get rid of! Our top-rated dark spot corrector, the Exclusive Medicated Fade Creme gradually brightens skin discolorations (such as dark spots on the face and hands, age spots, acne scars and sun damage) with a high-potency formula containing hydroquinone (the gold-standard for skin lightening) which absorbs quickly into the skin and gently diminishes the look of dark spots and brown skin discolorations on the face or the body.

Body Oil – Apply Daily

When you hop out the shower does your skin feel extra dry and tight? Add a body oil for instant hydration that absorbs into skin and makes it extra soft! Our Sensitive Line Moisturizing Body Oil not only promotes a healthy skin tone and smoother texture, this essential natural oil also can be used to begin the process of achieving an even-toned glow and brighter complexion.

Basic Lotion – Apply Daily

Whether you have a flawless complexion that you love or you’re still working on some uneven patches, it’s important to keep your skin moisturized. And don’t forget those hard to reach places or easily dried out areas such as hands, feet, knuckles and elbows! The Clear Essence Sensitive Line Texturizing Complexion Lotion is a light textured yet highly effective moisturizer. It is an easy to use lotion that restores the skins natural mechanical barrier, locks in moisture and reduces transepidermal water loss. This full body lotion gives the skin a natural supple feel and reinvigorates the epidermis protecting the skin from harsh weather and reducing the dryness that causes ashy skin. Now on sale for only $5.50!!

In 2018 you started to improve your skin care by drinking more water, maintaining a healthy diet, and vowing to take your makeup off every night. Did you stick to it? If you’ve already mastered the basics, here’s a few skin care resolutions to maintain and perfect your skin even further this year!

Remove Dark Spots

In 2018 you used Clear Essence cleansers to achieve less breakouts and pimples. In 2019 it’s time to work on those acne scars and dark spots still affecting your complexion. Luckily Clear Essence has released the Exclusive Medicated Fade Creme w/ Sunscreen to help reduce the appearance of discolorations on the face, neck, hands or body. It is a velvety cream best used on dry skin types and comes in a whole new look that will make you excited to pick it up each day and night. If you have oily skin we recommend our Platinum Line Skin Lightening Serum which is a light weight lightening gel that sits on top of the skin rather than soaking in to moisturize. Use either of these dark spot correctors twice a day for 4 to 6 weeks to see a spot-free even toned complexion.

 

Keep skin BALANCED

Is skin always too dry or too oily? A good way to keep skin in check daily is adding a toner to your skin care routine. A pH-balanced astringent helps control an oily t-zone and refresh dehydrated skin. Try the Sensitive Line Antiseptic Cleanser which is great for irritated skin and calming redness. If you have a build up of dead skin and a dull complexion, use the Anti-Aging Alpha Hydroxy Acid Toner to regenerate healthy skin cells.

 

Reduce Hyperpigmentation

Our face is the first thing people see, however, its important to care for the skin on our hands, body and feet too!! Don’t slack on moisturizers this year. You may already notice your elbows, knees or knuckles gaining some slight discoloration due to lack of moisture and hydration. Keeping joints and the body heavily moisturized helps reduce hyperpigmentation and discolorations. For a full body even skin tone we recommend our Platinum Line Skin Beautifying Milk. This lotion is a silky body complexion moisturizer to correct uneven patches such as darkened elbows, knees, knuckles, feet and other scars or discolorations. We recommend using this product twice a day for 4-6 weeks for a noticeable improvement. If you find you have sensitive skin we also provide our Sensitive Line Skin Beautifying Milk, which is hydroquinone-free and contains natural ingredients; it works in only 6-8 weeks of twice daily use.

 

Don’t skip your Sunscreen!

This one is on the resolution list every year, yet we still tend to forget our sunscreen before we walk out the house some mornings! Make it a habit to apply at least SPF 15 daily to ensure you maintain your flawless complexion and prevent new discolorations or dark spots from causing havoc. For an easy two-in-one formula, grab our Platinum Line Skin Beautifying Milk w/ SPF 15. Not only does it tone the skin for an even complexion, it also protects from future sun damage! If you already love your skin try the My Natural Beauty Moisturizing Lotion w/ SPF 15 which is an all natural body lotion w/ natural shea butter and sunscreens. Make sure you enjoy your even skin tone all year and beyond!

 

 

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results – Albert Einstein 

While we may have our go-to skin care products that have worked for us for years, it’s always nice to venture out and see what we’ve been missing in the world of skin care! The brand you know and love, Clear Essence has various other products that you could be adding to your skin care regimen to bring your glow to the next level! Read below for some things you may have missed this year and should start adding in 2019!

Toners

If your first cleanse hasn’t been doing its job its time to beef up your skin care with a second step cleanser. Our Toner Astringents help rid the skin of left over residue to ensure skin is free of dirt, oil, bacteria and any remaining debris that could clog pores. For added skin cell rejuvenation use our Toner Astringent with Alpha Hydroxy Acid which also helps to remove dead skin cells and promote a healthy skin complexion. Sensitive skin? Our Sensitive Skin Cleanser helps calm and soothe skin for a refreshed feel.

Body Oils

When you step out the shower does your skin feel dry and lifeless? Applying a body oil to damp skin can help keep skin softened and moisturized for the whole day! You will love the compliments you’ll get come Valentine’s Day by adding our silky body moisturizers to your routine. To correct dark spots and discolorations use the Platinum Line Skin Beautifying Oil. To soften stretchmarks and discolorations use our Specialist Skin Care Body Oil which contains Vitamins A & E. For Sensitive skin we suggest the Sensitive Line Moisturizing Body Oil which soothe skin with natural Shea Butter and Sesame Seed Oil. We also have our Baby Lavender Body Oil which helps keeps your little one’s baby soft skin comfortable and moisturized during the colder months.

Maintenance Products

Once you achieve your skin care results, do you give up your regimen and wait for the next dark spot, blemish or sun discoloration to appear? NO! Make sure your skin care routine is always evolving and keeping your skin in check. Once desired results are achieved we recommend using our My Natural Beauty Line which is composed of natural soap bars, moisturizers and sunscreen to keep skin protected from environmental elements. Use our My Natural Beauty Olive Oil Soap to rehydrate dry, flaky skin with natural virgin olive oil, aloe vera and shea butter extracts. Sunburned or damaged skin? We suggest our My Natural Beauty Carrot Oil Soap to repair and rejuvenate dead skin cells. For daily skin protection from harmful UV rays we suggest turning to the My Natural Beauty Lotion with SPF 15 to continue moisturizing and correcting your skin tone with sensitive, natural ingredients. Added SPF 15 protection prevents future sun damage and uneven skin tones.
