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.

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 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!

Another reason to hate on January: new research reveals that having dry hands ages us by a whopping nine years on average.

Yes, a specific study asked members of the public to estimate the age of people based solely on photos of their hands, where half were ‘dry’ and the other half ‘not dry’, and 69% of respondents guessed above the subjects’ actual age when looking at the drier hands. Two even guessed the dry hands of a 28-year-old to be aged 80, while – on average – healthy hands were seen to be one year younger. Pretty harsh stuff.

It all comes courtesy of the company Harvey Water Softeners, who are keen to point out that soft water equals softer skin and hair – which can often be the case.

Extreme though the results of their marketing may sound, it does serve as a reminder of the merits of a good old hand cream.

However, it’s important to note that it’s not only dry skin that serves up ageing effects on our hands (should you care), but sun damaged skin too. Therefore your hand cream of choice should always feature SPF. Even in January.

Clear Essence Dry Skin Care Products

dry skin care

to keep your body and hands soft and aging flawlessly!

Most of us have have probably heard or used the Clear Essence Babyexpression, “Soft as a babies bottom.”

It’s true fresh baby skin can be nice and soft, but there are times when their skin might have a rash or not be as smooth which can cause irritation and discomfort for your little one. Some possible reasons for this are: eczema, baby acne, diaper rashes, and the weather. Here’s some tips on keeping your baby’s skin soft including home remedies and the Clear Essence products that can help!

Eczema

According to Parents Magazine, “Eczema is an inherited form of skin sensitivity that causes extremely dry skin.” Babies with eczema tend to have red tiny bumps all over their body. Since it is extremely dry skin, it will become itchy; so it is important to cut your babies nails so they can’t scratch at it. Also, make sure they get their baths and they are using a gentle cleanser, but try not to keep them in for long because it may irritate their skin more and cause it to become dryer.

Baby Acne

Baby acne appears as little zits that are found on the face or body. It can occur during the first few weeks after birth, and is caused by hormones that are still lingering in their blood streams. Baby acne usually clears up on its own, but it should be washed gently. Also, do not apply any oil or lotion on the face or affected areas.

Diaper Rash

Diaper rashes are normal, however with new advances in diapers and material used, they are luckily becoming less common. Rashes can begin when waste is left on the skin too long. It can also be caused by changing your baby’s diet. To prevent this it is important to change their diapers more often and instead of using drying wipes that can irritate their skin more, use cotton squares like toilet paper or tissues. Before putting the diaper on use petroleum jelly on the rash to protect the rash from additional irritation.

Dry Skin

Just like weather can cause our adult skin to dry out, it can do the same to babies’ skin. However, babies’ skin is obviously more sensitive then ours.  Make sure to protect their skin by using sunscreen and clothing. Hats are also very important in the sun because since less hair has grown in, they are more prone to get a sunburn on the head. During the winter it is important that they are wearing lotion especially if you live in very dry places.

A product line that can help with dry and chapped skin is the Clear Essence Baby Line. Each product is formulated with unique herbal blends to soothe and comfort babies’ delicate skin. The Baby lotion with Shea & Cocoa Butter helps with relieving dry, itchy, and irritated skin, as well as maintaining skin’s natural moisture balance. Remember if any of these symptoms, from above, worsen please contact your pediatrician.

Winter Landscape

Dry Skin and chapped lips are some of the things we have in store for us once winter arrives.

Based in Southern California, Clear Essence Cosmetics USA, Inc. headquarters enjoys some of the best weather year round. Bracing for winter here means throwing on a light sweater! However, for those areas with more than one season, your skin may need some help combating the elements. During winter Humid rain dropsthe air becomes much dryer, winds increase, and there’s regular chances of rain, snow, etc. Think of what that does to our skin. You may start to experience increased dryness in your skin during this time of the year. The weather can cause our skin to become so dry that it cracks and becomes sore. Some of the places on our bodies that seem to dry out the most are elbows, knees and knuckles. However, there are ways to prevent, avoid, and cure dry skin and a lot of the solutions are very simple and easy to do.

The Why and How?

Before talking about how to solve these issues for good, let’s answer the question: How does the weather affect my skin? Well, in harsh dry weather water is pulled out of the skin and into the dehumidified wind. Rapidly changing temperatures can also irritate the skin such as leaving the warm house to go out into the snow. Try avoiding taking hot showers during the winter as it dries the skin. And although a heater keeps you toasty it can dry the air in your room which again translates to dry skin.

As mentioned, the areas you may find drier than others are your elbows, knees, and knuckles. This is because the skin is always bending and stretching and needs special care. When it comes to knuckles, our skin can be very sensitive to many household products. Ingredients in cleaning supplies can remove our natural oils from our skin. If you have dry or cracked skin on your hands it is important to use gloves when cleaning around the house to not cause further harm to the healing wounds. Also, the material of sweaters and long sleeve shirts can rub against the elbow causing irritation to already dry skin. Make sure to moisturize completely before putting on clothing to prevent chafing.

Tips and Tricks

So what are some ways you can prevent these horrors caused when winter comes around? You can stay hydrated, drink water regularly. Change your face wash to something that is mild and gentle on your skin. You want something that can seal in moisture. You can switch your moisturizer from light too thick because summer is over and your skin will need extra emollients. And in order to make sure your skin is getting the moisture it needs, you can purchase a humidifier so thatOlive Oil Creme you can still use your heater without over drying your room.

Products that Work!

Clear Essence Cosmetics has dry skin care products that will work great for your skin in the winter such as their Skin Beautifying Milk from their Platinum Line, and their Olive Oil Crème from their My Natural Beauty Skin Line. The Skin Beautifying Milk will even out your skin tone while keeping it hydrated and soft. This is a great addition to your regimen to prepare for the skin bearing summer!
