- SAY GOODBYE TO WINTER SKIN
A new season is upon us! March 20 marked the beginning of the Spring Equinox! As we say goodbye to winter and welcome the sunshine of spring, it’s time to talk about prepping our skin for the change in the weather. Just as your home yearns for a springtime refresh, your skin also benefits from a spring-cleaning. To look your very best this season, it is essential to adjust your skincare, especially if you live in a climate where the temperature and humidity differences are significant. During these changes, it is the time to retire those heavy face creams and let us usher you into a new beauty routine that embraces the vernal equinox with life force energy of active botanicals that will revive the skin and jump-start a fresh new, light springtime daily skincare routine!
- ADD VITAMIN C
Vitamin C’s antioxidant properties help promote collagen, giving your skin a more youthful appearance. But that’s not all! Some studies have shown that vitamin C may also help to prevent and treat ultraviolet (UV)–induced photo damage. Vitamin C helps to remove hyper-pigmentation and uneven skin tone, to reveal brighter, youthful new skin. The form of vitamin C we use in our Vitamin C+ Brightening Moisture Fluid is an ascorbic acid polypeptide. We feel this is superior to other forms of vitamin C traditionally used in anti-
aging products in a number of ways, not the least of which is it does not have the acidic “bite” associated with traditional vitamin C serums that can cause redness and irritation to the skin. That is fantastic news for aging skin that is also sensitive, compromised, or Rosacea-prone.
We have added Purslane – a new “super ingredient” for aging skin to our new Vitamin C+ that will maximize the Vitamin C’s efficacy and bring a wealth of vital nutrients and minerals to address aging skin seriously. This product can penetrate the deeper epidermal layers of the skin to address the root cause of skin discoloration – the cellular production of melanin. Upon application, it penetrates the melanocytes, which produce the protective pigment known as melanin. Melanin is reduced to a colorless substance, inhibiting the formation of freckles and “age spots.” Beta-glucan protects the skin’s moisture barrier, stimulates collagen production, and promotes cell turnover. This beautiful succulent plant is a hidden gem in anti-aging skincare and shows a range of biological activity, including antioxidant protection, wound healing, and anti-inflammatory properties. This is a powerhouse plant whose leaves and stems contain significant amounts of amino acids, Vitamins A, C, and B, and carotenoids—minerals: magnesium, calcium, potassium, and iron. Purslane is rich in glutathione and glutathione reductase and has demonstrated an ability to improve vitamin C stability.

- DOUBLE CLEANSE YOUR SKIN
The Double Cleanse is the #1 “must-have” for spring cleaning your skin. This powerful approach of detoxifying and decongesting the skin and clogged pores immediately refines skin texture and purifies the skin. Whether your skin is dry, sensitive, combination, or acne-prone, double cleansing is the missing link in corrective skincare and is the very foundation of all results-focused protocols.
PreCleanse & Detox and Cleanse & Purify the skin and deeply remove daily grime that plugs pores and dulls the skin’s natural “glow.” Chock full of ultra-pure, organic seaweed, this skin-purifying combination is infused with peppermint, rosemary, lavender, and sage to invigorate the skin and deliver a real “wake-up” call in the mornings!
- GO LIGHTER
The transition from winter to spring can be rough on your skin. In the cold, dry months, our skin gets parched and requires a layered approach of serums, oils, and rich moisturizers. In the spring, as the humidity rises and the weather begins to warm, our skin’s natural oil production increases, and as a result, our skin tends to stay more hydrated. The season changes make it necessary to switch from a heavier moisturizer to a lighter emulsion for warmer weather and more humid climates. Vitamin C+ Moisture Fluid and The Elixir are perfect for hydration for spring and summer skin.
- DAILY UV Protection is a MUST
As we salute the sun, remember to protect your skin from UVA and UVB light throughout the day. With shorter days and little sunlight in winter, we must pay attention to UV protection and protecting the skin from environmental damage. With more sunshine in spring comes more responsibility. We created Total Eclipse to bring together the benefits of a moisturizer, foundation, anti-aging soufflé, and environmental protection – all in one chemical-free formula. This weightless, matte-finish beauty balm formulation is to protect healthy skin from the ravages of harsh environments without any toxic chemicals. It simplifies your daily beauty routine with potent antioxidants, micronized zinc, and titanium oxide that effectively protect your skin. Total Eclipse is three products – in one…an antioxidant-rich moisturizer, environmental protection, and a matte finish foundation alternative all in one lightweight cream. Perfect to even out your skin tone if you don’t want to wear foundation or to use as daily enviro-protective cream under foundation.
- ADD A POWER TOOL
Although it may look small and simple, don’t let the packaging fool you. The MYSKINBUDDY™ Boost has four different proven technologies, in six different settings, for treating and transforming your skin, including ultrasonic vibration, ion care, thermal heat therapy, and photon LED therapy (Light Emitting Diode), including red, blue, and green light settings. Each of these settings can be used for a standalone targeted treatment or combined in a series for your at-home mini facial. This device boosts skin rejuvenation and anti-aging and is also very effective in treating breakouts and problem skin. Ionization works to facilitate optimal skin nourishment by infusing serums and moisturizers into the skin’s deep epidermal layers. The device also promotes collagen synthesis and skin renewal.
