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!! 

 

Skin Care Sets for Your Love

Ever wonder for the perfect gift for him? Men deserve to have a clear, healthy and beautiful skin as well. 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.

Many of us may think in order to get flawless, even skin we need to spend a lot of money on products, treatments and anti-aging regimens. However, there’s lots of easy and AFFORDABLE ways to achieve a perfected skin tone without breaking the bank! Here’s a few ways you’ve been throwing away money when it comes to your skin care routine..

1) You’re Working on the Exterior without Considering the Interior

Our skin is the window to the body. What goes into the body can effect your overall skin complexion. If you’re not supplying yourself with enough water, internal organs start to dehydrate and your skin can appear dull, dried out and lifeless. The foods we eat can also cause breakouts and other signs of allergic reaction such as sugars, oily and greasy snacks. Another cause poor skin is stress; its effects on the body can translate to acne and overall skin disruption. Make sure you’re starting your skin care with proper nutrition, diet and wellness.

2) You’re Focusing on Brand Names Rather than Ingredients and Results

Often times we’ll believe if it’s priced higher and found on all the high-end shelves, it has to be good! That may be true but its more effective to go off of ingredients and proven results over a number of years. Plus why spend more on something that does the same thing for less??? For example, Clear Essence skin care products have been trusted for over 30 years to even dark spots and uneven skin tones but are affordably priced under $15 USD! We even have a full line of products affordably priced under $5 each, the Maxi-Tone Quick Tone Line, which provide a full regimen of easy to use, effective products. The Maxi-Tone Quick Tone Fade Creme is one of our #1 dark spot correctors for small spots or scars on the face, hands, or body. Use twice a day for 4 to 6 weeks to see improvement. NOW: Clear Essence is offering a special promotion, purchase $50+ of Maxi-Tone Quick Tone Products and receive FREE SHIPPING on your order! Limited Time Only!!

3) You’re Not Sticking to Your Regimen Daily

If you want results, you gotta do the work! Buying all the products in the world will do nothing for your skin if you never apply them! Don’t let your skin care products just collect dust after you’ve purchased; stay consistent and let the products work their magic!!

The holidays are a great time to spend with family and friends. Don’t let your complexion ruin the fun by making those holiday photos something to cringe at later! Keep skin even and flawless throughout the merriest season so you can focus on the ones who matter most! Read below for our tips on keeping skin fresh during this busy time of year.

Stay Rested

This time of year can lead to lots of stress to ensure everything is perfect; the gifts, the food, the tree, etc. It’s all putting additional stress onto your mind! Make sure to continue to take time for yourself during the season of giving by gifting yourself some alone time. Whether taking time for a massage, getting a manicure, curling up with a book or just ensuring you get 8 hours of rest each night, make sure your body and mind is remaining healthy.

 

Watch your Diet

The holidays can wreak the most damage to the skin due to the fatty and sugary foods we tend to enjoy during this time. Another factor that can dry out your complexion is alcohol consumption. Try to remain kind to your body and limit the amount of sugars being put it to the body to limit breakouts and a dull complexion.

 

Piling on Makeup

We all love a holiday glam! But make sure to take your makeup off after every holiday party! Sleeping in makeup can clog pores and trap oils under the skin causing breakouts. For a refreshed skin tone before bed try our Clear Essence cleansers. Our powerful soap bars help remove dirt, bacteria and oil on the skin so that pores are clean and ready for your skin care treatments. If skin remains oily after our soap bar cleansers, try a calming Toner to help remove left over residue and ensure skin is free of any pimple-causing debris.

 

Hectic Schedule

Holiday parties, dinners, school recitals, church events; the holidays always have us running around in multiple directions! Your hectic schedule can make it easy to forget your normal skin care routine. Find easy ways to keep your skin care goals in check while attending to all your festivities. One tip is to carry your moisturizer in your purse at all times to ensure dry skin is never a problem. Our Sensitive Line Skin Beautifying Milk comes in a sleek container perfect for throwing in your purse and also contains licorice extract to correct dark spots and discolorations while curbing dry skin.

Winter Landscape

From Summer to Fall Weather

Cold weather can leave you with dull, cracked and dry skin!! There’s simple things you can do to help combat cold weather and leave your skin looking beautiful and radiant!

You may notice that when the air is cold, your skin is more ashy and dry than usual. There are a few factual reasons for this. The first is that cold air is dry and lacks humidity. Dry air pulls the moisture out of the skin, and makes it difficult for the skin to stay properly hydrated. Heavy winds also add to this problem. They strip the skin’s lipids, which help to seal in the skins moisture. Even people who wouldn’t normally have dry skin, can develop a flaky and dull complexion if the skin is exposed to these conditions.

 

Exfoliation:

Exfoliation is the process of removing dead skin cells that dull complexion. Dead skin appears flaky, dry and weathered. Use any method of exfoliation that works best for you and be consistent, the best results show themselves after some time. Doing away with dead skin is one of the best things you can do for your skin in general, because the build-up clogs pores and causes breakouts. We like to recommend our Clear Essence My Natural Beauty Olive Oil Soap as it not only exfoliates the skin but soothes dry skin with natural olive oil extract.

Moisturizing Dry Skin:

Now that we are working with fresh skin, the next step is to begin adding and retaining moisture. Try to use African American skin care products that work towards hydrating dry skin. Clear Essence Sensitive Line Skin Beautifying Milk helps repair skin that has been damaged by over exposure to environmental elements and also includes natural ingredients to help calm irritation.

Retain Moisture:

Adding an oil to your regimen helps lock in moisture and keeps it from being stripped by winds and other harsh elements. Apply an oil directly to the skin after bathing to help water soak into the skin or add directly to bath water to fully hydrate your body. This will act as a barrier between the environment and your skin, and can be especially helpful if your skin becomes chapped easily. Clear Essence Sensitive Moisturizing Body Oil is a unique oil that contains natural shea butter and sesame seed oil for added skin health. Adding a small amount of this oil to your regimen is sure way to put that healthy glow back into your skin.

These steps are simple, but can completely transform your skin. Always remember to use sunscreen for protection against sunrays, and to stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water.
