Taking time to thoroughly care for your skin is one of the best ways to improve the appearance of your skin. It’s best to take as much time as you do with makeup (for example, 30 minutes) to take care of your skin. Too often, we cover up with cosmetics, smoothing over discolorations and fine lines without really addressing the factors creating these issues in the first place.
Sun Damage Overexposure in the sun can dry and age our skin while increasing the production of free radicals. We have an anti-aging treatment, Vitamin C Elixir, to shield your skin from free radicals and oxidative stress caused by residual environmental effects. In addition to the treatment, the use of our Lifting Set boosts hydration to replenish dry skin and counteracts the effects of aging by stimulating natural collagen production with three types of collagen: acacia collagen, nattō gum collagen, and marine collagen.
To prevent damage from the sun, it’s imperative to protect your skin really well throughout the day. We recommend using broad spectrum sunscreen or foundation with sunscreen. At CLE, we have 2 foundations containing broad-spectrum SPF 50, CCC Cream.
Dehydration Dehydration has a negative impact on our skin, as well as our entire body. It’s vital to stay hydrated, especially during the summer when we tend to dehydrate more than usual. When we aren’t properly hydrated, our body isn’t functioning as it should; this can cause irritability, headaches, and kidney damage if it becomes severe enough.
It can also lead to our skin to lose some of its natural elasticity. If you’ve noticed your skin is looking dull and flaky or itchy patches, it could be due to dehydration or dry skin in general. Using a mask pack once or twice each week can definitely help alleviate the dryness. We recommend a daily skincare regimen including a cleanser, toner and deep moisturizing agent.
Reducing your intake of caffeine (and alcohol) and drinking more water can be a huge help. Skip that third cup of java and enjoy a glass of water instead! Your face will thank you.
Stress There are many studies showing how chronic stress affects our bodies. Stress can increase our blood pressure, as well as cause headaches, stomachaches and other chronic pain. It can also cause our bodies and our skin to age prematurely.
Stress is just a reality of life. Or, is it? We can’t eliminate every problem the world throws at us. What we can control is our reaction to these problems. There are many ways to reduce the stress in our lives, taking positive steps toward a happier life, including:
♦ Getting a good night’s sleep – create a peaceful environment & stretch before you sleep
♦ Enjoying some type of daily exercise – walk in nature, swim, or take a spin class
♦ Reducing caffeine intake – try to limit caffeine to just one cup of coffee per day
♦ Take a time out for gratitude – jot down a few items of thankfulness each day
♦ Find something to laugh about – it turns out laughter is the best medicine!
♦ Take a deep breath – take a few minutes to focus on deep breathing
♦ Don’t overextend yourself – it’s okay to say no sometimes
♦ Listen to music – a soothing song can help you relax quickly
Can Our Vegan Face Mask Pack Eliminate Stress? To a certain extent, the answer is yes. When you apply the mask pack to your skin, you’ll need to use about 15 to 20 minutes of your time to allow the mask to work its magic.
Why not use that time to relax and decompress? Light an aromatherapy candle, turn on some soft music, lay back and relax. Take some deep breaths and clear your mind from the worries of the day. This short period of time can help reduce your blood pressure and can put you in the right frame of mind to enjoy a good night’s sleep, boosting your body’s ability to heal.
Does Vegan = Cruelty-Free? At CLE Cosmetics, the answer is yes. All of our products are vegan and cruelty-free, no animal byproducts are used to create our skincare and cosmetics. We do not test our products on animals nor do we allow third-party testing of our products on animals.
