Turn Over A New Leaf with Glytone

As the seasons change from fall to winter, your skin care regime should change as well, including some TLC for your face, arms and legs…basically, your entire body!  In the winter, it's not just your face and hands that need a little extra attention.

Consider taking the time during your daily shower to cleanse and soften the body with Glytone Exfoliating Body Wash which is designed to cleanse and soften while providing the exfoliating and revitalizing benefits of 8.8% Glycolic acid concentrate. 

Think of your body like a tree, covered in a layer of protective bark, and when you shower, your body cleansing should involve polishing away the oldest and loosest skin cells to reveal the living cells underneath.  This allows the freshly exfoliated skin to absorb the benefits of emollients when you slather on your moisturizing body lotion or cream. 

Gentle, yet effective, this amazingly cleansing body wash removes excess oils, debris and dirt, leaving the body feeling fresh and rejuvenated.  This unique gentle exfoliating wash softly helps in shedding old skin cells and awakening a rejuvenated new skin layer!  Skin is radiant, soft and healthy.

And speaking of moisturizing your body, it only makes sense to follow your a daily and diligent Glytone exfoliating regime with the Glytone Exfoliating Body Lotion. This richly-nourishing body lotion is especially formulated to moisturize and correct skin texture imperfections on the body, while softening and smoothing to reveal younger, more vibrant looking skin.

Dull skin cells need proper upkeep. Here are some points to consider:
  • Basic cleaning: Even dead skin needs a regular bath. If you leave your dry skin cells undisturbed, it will mix with sweat and dirt to form a very open platform for bacteria to live on your skin. Keeping up with a basic cleaning ritual is paramount for your best body skin. 
  • Moisturizing: Ordinary soaps are harsh and drying. They strip away the natural oils in your skin. Unfortunately, this dry skin loses its natural protection against bacteria, which can then slip in through cracks and fissures in your skin. To keep your defenses up, rub lotion on your hands when they become dry (for many people, that means after every washing), and use gentle cleansers on other parts of your body (like your face).
  • Exfoliation: Some people swear by special scrubs and brushes for removing dead skin cells. While exfoliation may improve the feel of your skin and temporarily enhance its appearance, over exfoliation can cause you to end up with dry, inflamed skin. So if you’re an exfoliating junkie, limit your sessions to twice a week, and moisturize your skin to replace the natural oils you’ve just scrubbed away.
The Glytone KP Kit contains the Exfoliating Body Wash and Exfoliating Body Lotion, as well as a body pouf.  It utilizes the benefits of Free Glycolic Acid to help reduce specific skin conditions, such as Keratosis Pilaris, red bumps, and rough, bumpy skin. Great for keratotic or dry skin.

Feel fresh and scrubbed with the entire line of Glytone products just in time for the Holiday Season!

Miracle of Avène Thermal Water Cold Cream

Who would have ever guessed that the main ingredient in Avène Cold Cream was discovered by a horse who was playing in the mountains of Avène, France!

Legend has it that in the South of France in 1736, a horse with a skin condition belonging to a local nobleman, was let free to roam the Cévennes Mountains in Avène, France.  Every day the horse would drink and roll in the water from a natural spring.  Miraculously, the horses’ skin condition was completely cured! 

The microflora, called Aqua Dolomiae, makes this thermal spring water so effective. It comes from deep within the earth and produces the active substances found in the Avène Thermal Spring Water.  Used in all Avène products, this water gives these products its significant anti-itch, anti-inflammatory properties, helping to stimulate the skin’s natural protection.

The “miracle of Avène” water is special because of its mineral content and its quality, both of which are very consistent.  This remarkable biological property combined with the well-known mineral properties of Avène Thermal Spring Water ensures gentleness and tolerance, creating a unique double signature that does not exist anywhere else in the world.

If you’re looking for a great cold cream, Avène has entire collection of Cold Cream based skin products that are rich and moisturizing.  This Cold Cream formula combines Avène Thermal Spring Water, pure white beeswax and pharmaceutical grade paraffin oil to moisturize, nourish, and protect the skin from the drying effects of environmental aggressors that compromise the skins moisture barrier.

Start with Avène Cold Cream Ultra Rich Cleansing Gel for the face, or the Avène Cold Cream Ultra Rich Cleansing Bar for both face and body to gently cleanse the skin.  Follow with the Avène Cold Cream and Avène Cold Cream Nourishing Body Lotion to deeply nourish the skin.  Next apply the specialty products such as the concentrated Avène Cold Cream Hand Cream, Avène Cold Cream Lip Balm or Avène Cold Cream Lip Cream

Suitable for infants and children as well, these products are cool and soothing to the touch, and after about a week of use, the Avène Cold Cream Nourishing Body Lotion will stop your skin from flaking, all without staining your clothes or competing with your perfume.

Five Osmosis Festive Skin Tips for Holiday Glow

5 Festive Skin Tips to Boost your Holiday Glow

To View all Osmosis Skin Care Products CLICK HERE

The holiday season brings with it joy, family, and fun. But it can wreak havoc on your skin if you're not careful. Osmosis Skincare takes a unique, holistic approach to healing from the inside out, ensuring your skin looks merry and bright all season long, no matter how dry and cold it gets! Say Season's Greetings to your all-natural and all-encompassing holiday health routine bringing balance to your skin and body. Let's dive in!

1. Hydrate inside and out! Immerse is one of our favorite products to use in conjunction with Quench or Quench Plus. Adding just half a pump of Immerse to your daily/nightly moisturizer will give your skin a mega boost of hydration to keep your skin in tip-top shape throughout the dry months.
It's also important to increase your water intake to help keep your body functioning at its prime. The more water we provide our body with, the more it is able to flush out those toxins we tend to take in during the holiday season!

2. Gently exfoliate. Adding in a treatment that safely sweeps away dead skin buildup will keep your skin from flaking. We love using our Polish mask once a week as a gentle form of exfoliation. Steer clear of harsh scrubs as they can compromise the surface and health of the skin. That's why we love this cranberry enzyme mask which gives us a fresh, smooth complexion.

3. Treat yourself with Refresh. This thick, balmy eye treatment will keep the sensitive skin around your eyes moisturized and protected. It also makes for an incredible lip and cuticle treatment! Load your lips, cuticles, and gently pat a bit around your eye orbital for a luxurious, moisturizing treatment.

4. Did we mention moisturize? Mineral Hydration Mist is another great way to douse the skin with added moisture. We keep one everywhere! From our purse or car to our desk drawer, we love using this refreshing spray to revive tired mid-day skin. The Mist will give your complexion a nice re-up of hydration. Use it during the day to help your skin combat dryness. Plus! Mineral Makeup thrives on moisture so you can use it to help enhance your look for the holidays too!

5. Night treatment. For those with extra dry, sensitive skin, use our Hydralift Firming Gel Mask as a sleep pack. Pat a small amount all over your face, then hit the pillow. Once a week give your skin a treat with this overnight, hydration hack and watch your skin transform!

Be you!  Be Beautiful!
