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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

People tend to experience changes in their skin when the weather changes. Cold, windy weather often results in dry skin and chapped lips. Warmer temperatures, especially with added humidity, usually  makes the skin oily. When this occurs, it’s important to switch up your  skin care routine!

If you have problems with dry skin in the winter seasons, do not use harsh products on your skin. Our products from the My Natural Beauty Skin Tone Line and Lemon Plus Vitamin C Skin Care Line are gentle, yet work effectively to treat dry skin. It’s best to limit exfoliating products during dry seasons as over cleansing can strip your skin of its natural oils. Use face washes that have creamier textures to keep your skin hydrated. Also, moisturize consistently with oils or lotions! Our Platinum Line Skin Beautifying Oil and Skin Beautifying Milk with SPF 15 work wonders on dry skin. These products help make the skin soft and smooth, while protecting it from harsh weather.
When the weather gets warmer, our skin often gets oilier. Pores open up when you sweat, causing dirt and bacteria to get trapped in the skin. It is important to exfoliate often to get rid of the excess build-up. Our Platinum Line Blemish Control Wash is effective in removing excess dirt and oil from the skin. Make sure to moisturize after, and apply SPF! If you’re looking for an SPF lotion that does not leave the skin feeling greasy like most sunscreens, try the My Natural Beauty Moisturizing Body Lotion w/ SPF 15. It protects the skin as it softens and hydrates.

No matter what the weather may be, always wear sunscreen. We cannot stress this enough. Rain or shine, UV rays will always be emitted into our atmosphere. Clouds often trap more UV rays than on a clear day. If you live in snowy conditions, note that UV rays bounce off of the snow. No matter what season, time, or location you may be in, always protect your skin from harmful UV rays.

Use these tips to make sure that you’re protecting and taking care of your skin in any kind of weather. In any season, it’s up to you to make sure that your best skin radiates through!

Carrot is a root vegetable, usually orange, even though purple, red, black, yellow, and white carrots exist as well. Besides their delicious flavor, carrots contain high amounts of beta-carotene and other health-benefitting compounds such as vitamin A, minerals and antioxidants. Carrots offer multiple health benefits and are beneficial for organs such as the eyes, skin, digestive system and teeth.

This crunchy vegetable is low in calories and rich in nutrients gives you high doses of vitamin A and other antioxidants when consumed or applied topically. Some benefits of carrots for the skin are as follow

 Benefits of Carrots for skin

The benefits of carrot for the skin are evident because the vegetable contains big amounts of vitamin A and other antioxidants that protect again various skin issues and help in keeping a healthy skin complexion.

Carrots for Glowing Skin

Consuming carrots helps maintain your skin and keep it looking healthy and radiant due to their huge amounts of vitamin C and antioxidants—they are substances that may protect cells in your body from free radical damage that can occur from exposure to certain chemicals, smoking, pollution, radiation, and normal metabolism.

Carrots Help with Treatment of Scars and Blemishes

An effective way to reduce scars/blemishes is drinking carrot juice because it is full of skin-healing beta carotene—a skin-friendly nutrient that is converted to vitamin A inside the body. Moreover, you can apply carrot pulp on the areas you want to treat to clear the blemishes away.

Anti-Aging Benefits

Carrots are loaded with vitamin C that aids the collagen production in the body. Collagen is fundamental for the maintenance of the skin elasticity. This type of protein helps in the prevention of wrinkles and slows down the process of aging. Similarly, vitamin A, as an antioxidant, attacks free radicals to prevent signs of aging such as wrinkles, pigmentation and uneven skin tone.

Carrots Protects Against Sun

Beta-carotene helps in repairing the skin tissues and provide protection against the sun’s harsh rays. The antioxidants and carotenoids protect and regenerate the skin to help heal sunburns.

Carrots for Dry Skin

When there is a deficiency of potassium, dry skin might occur. Carrots, however, are rich in potassium. As a result, carrot consumption can prevent dry skin to happen, keeping it hydrated.

As you can read, the benefits of carrots are tremendous, so include the vegetable in your diet. Nonetheless, you can also include it in skincare products to enhance results. If you were wondering where can you find them, we’d love to introduce you to our Clear Essence Maxi-Tone Carrot Seed Oil Skin Whitening  Soap  which has a formative effect in stimulating skin cell growth aimed to rejuvenate wrinkled, aged and dehydrated skin. Carrot Seed Oil contains Beta Carotene and Vitamin A to help maintain skin tone and elasticity.

Do not be afraid to live your best life, start by taking care of your skin. So you can take on the world!!
