April is Rosacea Awareness Month

Rosacea is a chronic skin condition that affects more than 14 million Americans. The symptoms are widely mistaken for acne or sunburn due to their similar symptoms as rosacea. It is a skin condition that causes redness and inflammation in areas like the chin, cheek, forehead and nose. As the condition worsens, small, red bumps called papules and pus-filled pimples called pustules appear on the skin, which is why rosacea is often mistaken for acne.

While rosacea can affect anyone, it is most commonly found in women aged 30-50. People who have pale skin are also more prone to having rosacea. There are some common triggers for causing rosacea flare ups like stress, alcohol, spicy foods, skin irritants, and more. Unfortunately, there is no known cure for rosacea, but there are treatments that can be used to soothe its symptoms.

Rosacea is not a commonly understood skin condition, but it’s important to be aware of it and pay attention to any symptoms you may have. It’s important to always take care of your skin and use products that help treat and control any skin condition you may have. While there currently isn’t a cure for rosacea, it is good to know that there are ways regulate this skin condition!

Excellent skincare products can be very helpful in treating and controlling rosacea. Here are some of our top picks:

1. CREAM CLEANSER is a great option for those with rosacea because it contains lipids from botanical sources which help replicate the skin’s protective ceramides. This allows the skin barrier (which becomes damaged with rosacea) to repair itself. CREAM CLEANSER also thoroughly cleanses the surface and pores of the skin while soothing the dry and irritated areas.

2. CLEANSING COMPLEX is an excellent cleanser for people who are experiencing pustular rosacea, as this product gently yet thoroughly cleans the skin. By removing the dirt, oil and debris that contributes to clogged pores, CLEANSING COMPLEX can help prevent and eliminate the pustules that may develop with rosacea. And because it is so gentle, it won’t further aggravate the skin.

3. PRO-HEAL SERUM ADVANCE+ has gentle botanical ingredients that help neutralize free radicals while helping to calm the skins inflammatory response. This means that it not only minimizes redness, but also reduces the discomfort associated with rosacea. PRO-HEAL SERUM ADVANCE+ also contains L-ascorbic acid, a scientifically-advanced form of vitamin C that provides potent photo-protection and anti-inflammatory properties. With its healing and reparative benefits, PRO-HEAL SERUM ADVANCE+ will help revitalize compromised skin due to rosacea.

4. ECLIPSE SPF 50+ can help people dealing with rosacea as well as protect their skin from harmful UVA and UVB rays. This sunscreen provides broad-spectrum protection and is antioxidant-rich which helps to decrease inflammation. Because it is all-physical and made from the highest quality ingredients available, it is very gentle and won’t irritate the skin – even in those prone to product reactions.

The 7 Powerful Benefits Of Raindrop Therapy

If you want to invigorate tired and stressed muscles, relieve neck and back pain, de-stress or simply slip into a blissful state of relaxation.

What Are Essential Oils? Essential oils are the concentrated essences extracted from raw materials such as; plants, flowers, herbs, resin, leaves, seeds, wood, bark, fruit and grasses.

What is Aromatherapy? Aromatherapy is the systematic use of volatile plant oils known as essential oils. Aromatherapy is a complementary therapy designed to treat the “whole” person by assisting the body’s natural ability to regulate, balance and maintain itself. The therapeutic essential oils support the body by bringing it back to balance without harmful side effects of chemical based products.

What is Raindrop Therapy?

This 75 minute therapy is a wonderfully rejuvenating and deeply relaxing topical application of therapeutic essential oils. Raindrop Therapy combines several holistic modalities to bring balance to the body in a non-invasive manner. It also stimulates all of the body systems on a physical and emotional level. The oils used in Raindrop are therapeutic grade and NOT adulterated oils. Adulterated oils contain synthetic chemicals or compounds and can be harmful to the body.

What Does It Involve?

The relaxing and mild application of the therapeutic-grade oils are gently dispensed like “little raindrops” up along the spine and back. The oils are worked into the skin by using soft feather-like movements and strokes. The essential oils are also applied to soles of feet and shoulders for reinforced benefits.

Why Is It Called Raindrop?

The essential oils are gently dispensed like “little raindrops” along the spine and back.

7 BENEFITS OF RAINDROP THERAPY:

1. Reduces Pain – Since its development, it is becoming clear that the elements of Raindrop therapy not only reduces chronic back pain but also benefits other body systems. The analgesic ingredients in the essential oils help reduce pain and discomfort.

2. Helps Relief Stress & Emotional Well-being Therapeutic essential oils have a normalizing effect on the nervous system making them ideal for reducing stress, anxiety and tension.

The oils can immediately penetrate cell membranes and diffuse through the blood and tissues instantly in a matter of seconds! The oils also cross the brain-blood barrier and effect the limbic system (the Amygdale) parts of the brain that control our mood, behavior and emotions. So if you’ve lost your “Joie de Vivre” Raindrop therapy will have you smiling and back to your normal self in no time.

3. Relax Muscles – Muscles that are sore, spastic or stressed will also benefit from Raindrop Therapy. Basil, wintergreen, marjoram, cypress and peppermint essential oils help with all the common muscle conditions.

4. Helps Reduce Inflammation – World wide studies have identified several essential oils as powerful anti-inflammatory agents. These include wintergreen, peppermint and thyme. These essential oils are all used in the Raindrop essential oil body therapy.

5. Helps Improve Circulation – Essential oils can be most beneficial in boosting circulation due to oxygenating properties. The essential oils of cypress, thyme, marjoram and peppermint all have properties that increase circulation and act as a circulatory stimulant.

6 Helps Detox the Body Systems – The therapeutic oils used in Raindrop therapy are high in phenols hence, cleanse cellular receptor sites and enhance the lymphatic system.

7. Helps improve Immune function – Thyme and oregano essential oils are known to support the immune system. They also create an unfavorable environment for harmful viruses and bacteria that can hibernate and lay dormant in the body.

In short, the benefits of this therapy go well beyond the physical benefits. Raindrop can not only help relieve pain and restore immediate physical well-being, but it can set in motion the healing processes that will last for weeks.

BENEFITS OF A DERMAPLANE FACIAL

Do you love getting facials? Even a facial at home can help to refresh the skin, giving it a glow that can’t be replicated by anything else. Many utilize a combination of olive oil and sugars for at home facials and professional facials are completed every day using similar materials. If you’ve never had a dermaplane facial, however, then you’ve never really had the clearest, cleanest complexion in your life! What are the benefits of the dermaplane facial?

Benefit #1: Even Skin Tone

Dermaplaning is the perfect procedure to help even out a skin tone that made me starting to fade. Whether it is because of skin damage or there’s just a natural tone to your skin that has changed over time, this facial will help to restore more evenness to your complexion’s tone. It does this because a surgical blade is scraped over the skin, much like shaving, and the dead skin cells that can be contributing to the discoloration are quickly removed.

Benefit #2: Elimination of Fine Wrinkles

Although a dermaplane facial doesn’t have the ability to remove deep wrinkles or scars, it can eliminate the fine wrinkles the can begin to develop over time. This happens because the wrinkle in the skin is actually removed from the skin during the procedure, creating the appearance of a smooth complexion that can last for sometimes more than 6 months. Best of all, there are hardly any side effects to this procedure, unlike deep level cosmetic procedures that may require up to two weeks for a full recovery for a similar benefit.

Benefit #3: Hair Removal

Because a surgical blade is being used in this procedure, the application area will naturally become smooth and hair-free. This is particularly beneficial for those “peach fuzz” hairs that can sometimes get itchy, bothersome, or even caught on some things! It won’t cause those hairs to grow back in thicker or darker either, so you’ll be left with the smooth skin you want without the potential for redness or swelling that can accompany other treatment methods, like plucking.

Benefit #4: Very Little Risk

The primary risk that occurs with this facial is that bleeding may occur. A sharp surgical blade is used for the procedure and nicks can happen sometimes on skin that is uneven in tone. It’s a lot like shaving… and who hasn’t nicked themselves with a razor before during the shaving process? Most people experience skin sensitivity after the procedure has been completed for awhile, but makeup can be applied right away after it has been completed.

Benefit #5: It Is Long Lasting

Because this procedure removes up to 3 weeks of dead skin cells that have accumulated, a dermaplane facial will effectively last for up to a month before another procedure may be required. With good at-home maintenance of the skin, however, this time can be prolonged for up to 6 months as long as the dead skin cells are not allowed to accumulate. Many tend to return with the hair returns and dirt and oil begins to collect once again, which is typically 1 to 2 months.
