Giving Tuesday? How about Giving Month! Every year, we partner with a local non-profit organization in order to make sure we are doing our fair share. This year, we are proud to announce that we will be supporting Heart of Gold Medical International by donating $1 for every order placed on our site this month. What wonderful news!

A Heart of Gold

Heart of Gold Medical International (HOGMM) is a registered 501c (3) nonprofit organization with a mission to provide health education, medicine and medical needs to the less privileged with ailments in remote African villages. As a Company that sells products in Africa, we were more than overjoyed to join in on this worthy cause in celebration of Giving Tuesday. Check out this video from their December 2016 -January Mission trip.

“This is a video from our December 2016 – January Mission trip. Among the many things that inspires us is, the testimonies of those who have benefited from the “Magic pills”, words used to describe the epilepsy continuous pills that is supplied to the epileptic patients. The community cannot stop thanking God for the “American Care”, as they describe the Medical Mission. No patient pays a penny and all the volunteers are fed.  Please continue to support and pray.”

Clear Essence TonersA Clean Face is the First Step to An Even Skin Tone!
If you feel like your first step isn’t doing the job, try adding a second cleansing step to completely remove dirt and oils.

Introducing Clear Essence Toners

Blackheads are pores that are filled with dirt and oils on the skin. You may look at the tip of your nose and find a few right now! The best way to get rid of enlarged pores and dirt getting trapped under the skin is PREVENTION! Here’s a few tips to ensure your skin stays squeaky clean without little black pores showing up throughout the day.

1. Clean with your regular cleanser

However you currently cleanse your skin is perfectly fine. Remember that your skin must be clean to use a toner as you want your skin to be clean before you close pores. Use warm water and one of Clear Essence’s first step cleansers such as the Platinum Line Medicated Cleansing Bar or Platinum Line Complexion Soap for Normal Skin to remove the bulk of dirt, bacteria and oils on the complexion.

2. Apply Toner using a cotton ball

After cleansing use a cotton ball and one of our Clear Essence Toners to close pores and keep skin clean for longer! If you have oily skin this also helps ensure that there are no remnants of dirt and oil still left on the skin after your first cleansing step. Clear Essence Toner Astringent with Alpha Hydroxy Acid has the added exfoliating AHA ingredient which helps to also even out the complexion and give a smoother texture. Exfoliating regularly will also help clear out pores and remove dead skin cells trapped on the skin. Our Sensitive Line Antiseptic Cleanser is great for sensitive skin types to soothe the skin after cleansing with natural witch hazel and ginseng ingredients.

3. Moisturize

Double cleansing can dry out the skin. If your skin feels tight after cleansing that’s a good thing! Your pores are shrinked and closed so no environmental toxins can enter the pores and the skin. To eliminate overly drying the skin however, you may add a light moisturizer to rehydrate the skin and add a luminous glow. We recommend a very light layer of our Platinum Line Skin Beautifying Milk to help eliminate dark spots and give the skin an even glow or our Sensitive Line Texturizing Lotion to hydrate without lightening the skin tone.

4 Apply Sun Protection

Exfoliating the skin can cause sensitivity to the sun. To prevent redarkening or new dark spots from forming on the skin and to maintain the effects of your skin care regimen, apply SPF daily. Clear Essence SPF 15 products are two in one formulas great for creating an even skin tone while also protecting from the sun.

According to The Black Owned Beauty Supply Association, 150 black owned beauty supply stores opened around the country in 2017, bringing the total to 3,000. As a black woman or man, have you shopped at one?

It’s About D*mn Time!

Haircare and skincare combined is a trillion dollar industry and continues to grows every year due majorly to black women . A 2018 Nielsen report shows that African Americans spent $54 million on ethnic hair and beauty products in 2017 alone. Key world, alone. The next time you’re in your local beauty store, take a look around the store and look at the customers. We bet that even if there’s only one customer in the store it’s a black woman. It is black women that have and continue to make local beauty stores THE spot for beauty products. Isn’t it time that your beauty needs are provided to you by someone who truly understands your experience? *Looks at paragraph heading*

It’s no lie that a majority of beauty supplies stores and the distributors that supply them are owned by Korean-Americans. In fact, Korean-Americans run 70% of all beauty supply stores in the country. That’s 7 out of 10 beauty supplies stores, that as mentioned above, are selling their products to mainly black women. We in no way are trying to single out these store owners as the problem but want readers to know more about the places they choose to spend their money. It is this type of information that might motivate you to find that local black owned beauty supply store and provide them with your business.

Your Money, Your Store

While there isn’t an official list of black owned beauty supply stores out there, there are plenty of ways to find your closest one. Google “black owned beauty supply store” right now and if one doesn’t pop up on the right toolbar, there will be surely be links to websites with lists. We did and found a link to Black Wall Street’s 52 Black Owned Beauty Supply Stores You Should Know. Now was that hard? If you still can’t find a local black owned beauty supply store, find the closest one shipping wise and see if you can order products from the store via the phone. Let them know you want to support a black owned business and see if they give you a discount ;). #BuyBlack

We’ve all been a baby at one point in our lives. Can you believe that? Sometimes we even wish we could go back to those days. Think about it, waking up and going to sleep to new sounds, tastes, and smells every day. So many questions such as “Why don’t I like vegetables?” Have you seen baby food? Next question. “Why does the smell of lavendar or cocoa/shea butter take me to a happy place?” Have you tried your baby’s skincare?

Happy Baby Skincare. Happy Baby.

Fact: Babies have super-sensitive skin. That means rashes, rashes, and more rashes. We as adults get a mosquito bite, put some cortisone on it and call it a day. Imagine being a baby with a rash and not being able to even tell your parents where it itches. Cold world. But there is an upside to a baby having super-sensitive skin. One, being able to feel even the lightest of touches like the first kiss from Mom or Dad. Balance restored.

If you ask your parents what baby skincare products they used on you, most will probably mention Johnson & Johnson, Baby Magic, or even Aveeno. These well known brands have earned the top listings in Google search due to proven results over the past decades. Have you ever seen a happier baby than a Johnson & Johnson baby? (FYI, this is not a Johnson & Johnson baby but you get the idea :))

Clear Essence Baby

Try a baby skincare products next time you have a chance and see how the smell alone takes you back to a happy place. That’s exactly the goal of most of these baby skincare products aside from cleaning or moisturizing the skin. The use of smells such as lavendar or cocoa/shea butter in baby skincare products is to soothe and relax the baby. Bath time can be a messy and stressful experience for both baby and parents the first couple times around. Eventually the baby will look forward to bath time, as it is another opportunity for them to be close to their parents and of course, the smell and touch of their favorite baby skincare products. Is it bath time yet?

 

Like Mommy. Like Me.

The Clear Essence Brand was proud to introduce it’s own baby skincare line in 2003, Baby for Babies of Color by Clear Essence. A baby skin care regimen designed to pamper from the top of the head down to the tiniest foot, featuring ingredients such as oatmeal to relieve irritated skin, eucalyptus and menthol to comfort, and Vitamin E to ensure softness. Ingredients were chosen carefully: Its fragrant line was created in collaboration with herbalists, botanists and skin care specialists and includes a variety of cleansing bars, washes, lotions and oils. Also, it’s one of the few black owned baby skincare lines for babies of color.

Today, the Clear Essence baby skincare line has become a new favorite for parents looking for products specifically made for babies of color. We like to think that these parents are current Clear Essence customers and want the same level of care and concern for their baby’s skin that they’ve experienced with our other products. Recently, we have introduced the Clear Essence Baby Gift Pack and Hydration Pack offering buyers a complete baby skincare set that be can be used on babies ages 3 and up. AGES 3 AND UP. We will just that there. If you’d like to learn more about Baby for Babies of Color by Clear Essence and it’s ingredients we invite you to www.clearessence.com/skin-care-lines/baby-skin-care-1.html.

Have you ever wondered why your ‘black soap’ is your go-to acne cure? Why it has a kind of a strong smell compared to the rest of your soaps? Check out the ingredients one time. You see Sulphur listed below ‘Active Ingredients’? There’s your answer. There’s your acne cure.

Sulphur’s Story

Sulphur? You may say. Yes. We would say. Sulphur has been used since ancient times as an all natural acne cure and can be found in the ingredient list of today’s top skincare brands. It’s natural antibacterial properties eradicate acne-causing bacteria in your pores and prevent future breakouts when used on the daily. (Key word: daily. Don’t just use that Soap or cleanser with sulphur when acne appears, make it a part of your skincare regimen. You will see that the Difference is Clear! 😉 )

Aside from being one of the more milder acne medications, meaning it can be used by most skin types, Sulphur is a vital nutrient for your body, especially your skin. Keratin, which is a sulphur containing protein, is important for healthy nails and hair, and a key structural component of the outer layer of human skin. The Sulphur Institute has created the below chart which shows hows sulphur and your body work together:

Thinking of doing a little sulphur-shopping while on the Clear Essence website? Drop the Medicated Cleansing Bar Plus Exfoliants or CHIMÉRE Bump Control Cleansing Bar inside your cart and tell acne to shhhh!

#NoShaveGang

 Have you ever wondered why that in 2018 there still isn’t a cure for razor bumps? We’ve all read articles where they explain the origin of ingrown hairs and razor bumps including ways to try to prevent them but never an end all solution. That’s because there is no end all solution. As long as you are a black man with curly facial hair, you are susceptible to ingrown hairs, razor bumps, and dark spots as a result of shaving. But there is a way to prevent them from happening on the regular. One word: Barbershop.

Clean Cut. Clean Face.

Fellas, let’s admit it, barbers play a vital role in our grooming and truly ‘shape’ how the outside world sees us. There’s nothing like that second look at your cut in the rearview mirror boy! Your cut may not be exactly the same every time but the cleanliness is always there and that’s a big part of why we go to the barbershop. Have you ever tried to give yourself a line up with a straight edge razor? Probably not and that’s why we should leave such matters, including shaving, to the masters of men’s grooming, barbers. Shaving at home is like cutting your own hair, there’s bound to be some consequences. Said consequences when it comes to shaving at home are what we call the Migos of Men’s Grooming: ingrown hairs, razor bumps, and dark spots.

They’re dressed in all black because they want to sneak into your grooming regimen.

Are we saying that you should never shave at home? Yes, kinda, but we understand that sometimes you must due to work/personal related reasons. We don’t want you walking into a big meeting or date giving off the impression that you do not care about your overall appearance. PRESENTATION. IS. EVERYTHING.

Yes, presentation is everything but ask yourself, would you rather have some straggler facial hairs and a bushy mustache or ingrown hairs, razor bumps, and dark spots? Remember, ingrown hairs, razor bumps, and dark spots can last a lifetime whereas the straggler facial hairs and a bushy mustache are gone with a few touches of the clipper from your barber. You choose.

Gift of Creation

Chimére. Pronounced CHI-MER-A is of Nigerian Igbo origin and translates into English as “Gift of Creation” or “God Did It!” We like the first translation because it addresses both Creator and it’s gift to the world, you! And that’s exactly what the CHIMÉRE brand is all about, you!

The process in creating an effective grooming and skin care collection for men of color begin with the thorough understanding of the roots of men of color’s grooming concerns. Once that was understood, we applied our expertise in providing solutions using nature’s bountiful resources. CHIMÉRE became a global venture as our journey to create a treatment for ingrown hairs, razor bumps, and dark spots led us to Africa, Asia, South America and Australia.

In essence, CHIMÉRE is a celebration of You. Your strength. Your purpose. Your being.

Few beauty practices are embraced as enthusiastically as exfoliation. Dermatologists have long said that polishing the skin can banish dullness, clean pores and reveal a fresh, glowing complexion due to the removal of dead skin cells. However, it’s easy to get carried away. Buffing too often with abrasive scrubs, sponges and facial brushes can remove healthy oils and enzymes — leading to inflammation, redness, irritation and even hyperpigmentation especially on darker skin tones.

Now, skin-care experts are advocating for gentler measures. Professionals recommend simple cleansers and the next generation of toners that don’t look like exfoliators at all. Toners now pair exfoliating acids with soothing ingredients and are a major shift away from scrub brushes or coarse scrubs. These hybrid liquid formulas sink in easily, don’t require any rubbing and deliver a calming dose of hydration. They bring skin back to a more balanced state and can improve everything from fine lines to acne.

Find the Right Formula

AHA

Alpha Hydroxy Acid is derived from fruits and sugars and helps to accelerate skin cell regeneration and remove dead skin cells while keeping the top layer of skin soft and radiant.

Clear Essence Complexion Soap with AHA is an acne cleansing soap bar for the treatment of blemishes and pimples. When used consistently, this soap bar helps to exfoliate uneven pigmentation by removing dead skin cells, leaving a clear, even toned complexion.

Clear Essence Toner Astringent with AHA is a hydrating toner made specifically for oily skin is packed with the power of Alpha Hydroxy Acid. Using the toner after your normal cleansing helps to ensure that all makeup, bacteria and oiliness is completely removed from the skin with a clear and refreshing feel.

Witch Hazel

Witch Hazel is a natural alcohol derived from twig, bark or leaves of witch hazel. This calming extract gently cleanses without skin irritation.

Clear Essence Sensitive Line Antiseptic Toner fights oil and cleans deep down in pores to treat and prevent acne. This toner is specially formulated for sensitive skin. The toner is made with salicylic acid acne medicine to target existing pimples and prevent new ones from forming.

Lactic Acid

Similar to Alpha Hydroxy Acid, lacitic acid is one of the first ingredients to be used for light chemical exfoliation and it is now well known for its ability to remove dead skin build ups.

Clear Essence Lemon Multi-Active Toner is formulated with botanical extracts, to remove excess oil, dirt and makeup. This refreshing pH-balanced toner gently refines pores and helps promote an even skin tone. The liquid cleanse is a lemon lightening treatment for dark spots formulated with natural exfoliants which remove dead skin cells, oils, and bacteria left on the skin after cleansing.

The Lemon Plus Vitamin C Body Scrub Soap Bar combines a unique blend of botanical ingredients including Vitamin C, lemon, and other natural antioxidants to restore balance and tone to the skin. The soap bar is a lemon lightening treatment for dark spots formulated with natural exfoliants which scrub away dead skin cells and cause the skin to feel smoother and cleaner. We should also mention the light lemon scent leaves skin smelling GREAT!

Exfoliate Clean Skin, at Night

Regardless of the formula, apply your toner  after cleansing, preferably at night, since exfoliating can make your complexion sun-sensitive. Dispense a few drops in your palm or a cotton pad and sweep over your face, steering clear of your eyes.

Watch How Your Skin Reacts

Start by using toners only three times a week to avoid irritation. Then, gradually increase your frequency to once a day. A little tingling is normal. But if you notice redness, peeling or a burning sensation, you’ve probably been aggressive. Give your skin a break for a few days or dilute your toner with a few drops of water to cut the intensity.

Father’s Day is that special day in which we all want to highlight and be thankful for all the wonderful things our fathers/partners have done for us/our children. However, this should be done on a daily basis because every day is a good day to tell someone how much you love them and how appreciative you are for having them in your life. Sometimes it can be stressful because we do not know what to do to make this day very special. Here are five ways that will help make this Father’s Day, a day to remember.

1. Eliminate the Pressure:

What dads most desire is to have a day stress-free. We are sure dads would appreciate having a day with no deadlines, hassles, chores, and not rushing about this particular day. Allow him to relax and enjoy his day.

2. Spend Time Together:

Really focus on spending time together as a family in peaceful harmony. Many times we get caught up on the cooking, running to store, or finishing up a project that we tend to forget the most important part of this day: enjoying each other’s company.

3. Be Romantic:

This one goes for the wifeys out there. Father’s Day is not only a day to celebrate dad as a caregiver or provider for the kids. It is more than that, you can use this day to honor partner as a lover and friend. Tell him how much you love him and how much grateful you are for having him as a partner in life/father or your children.

4. Focus on Him:

This could be a little hard, sometimes, we want to plan everything but might end up giving him something he does not really want. Give him the gift of choice and freedom. Let him make the decision on how and what he wants to do for that special occasion. Accompany him on whatever he chooses to do.

5. Bring on the Praise:

Dads want to feel appreciated. Show him your appreciation by writing a little note or a love letter. Accompany this gesture by giving a little gift that he really wants or needs.

These easy tips will help you achieve a wonderful Father’s Day. Clear Essence wants to make it even easier for you. So we came up with ChiMere for Men: Face & Body Cleansing Set! For the first time we’ve packed ChiMere Triple Action Body Wash and ChiMere Bump Control Cleansing Bar in an affordable gift set just in time for Father’s Day! This combo cleanses and refreshes the skin, eliminating razor bumps and ingrown hairs. Head to our page for more details on this set. For a limited time we’ll also through in a ChiMere for Men T-Shirt and set of Clear Essence golf balls to really give you a complete package to spoil dad. Order soon to have this special gift in time for June 17th!

Lemons, citrus fruit, with thick skin and fragrant acidic juice provide many properties and benefits to the skin. Taking advantage of this powerful fruit, could help achieve results your skin has been looking for. Lemons are an amazing source of vitamin C, magnesium, calcium and potassium. These are minerals and antioxidants that improve the appearance and condition of hair, nails, and skin. Following are four benefits of lemon when it comes to skin care:

Lemons help heal acne and remove blackheads

Lemons’ antibacterial and anti-fungal properties make them a great solution to treat acne. Lemon’s natural anti-bacterial cleans out dirt and oils that block pores and cause breakouts on the skin.

Lemons lightening black spot and blemishes

Lemons’ acidic juice offers to lighten dark spots and even your skin tone gradually. Another great way to help combat this issue is using products that contain this amazing fruit. For instance, our Lemon Plus Vitamin C Perfecting Serum (now back in stock!) contains plant and fruit extracts, which lighten facial dark spots and blemishes.

Lemons help reduce oily skin

Lemons soothe chapped lips

Lemons Cleanse face and body

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!!
