Share The Love, Spread The Word: Four Skincare Products Every Woman Should Know About
Have you ever found a product that changed your life… or at least changed your skin? When I get excited about a product, I want to tell all my girlfriends about it. So, girlfriends, let me tell you about four products I love, love, love.
Freeze 24-7® Instant Targeted Wrinkle Treatment
If you want instant results, Freeze 24/7 is your product line! In particular, the Instant Targeted Wrinkle Treatment is a jar of miracles. According to the creators, the wrinkle treatment diminishes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by 50-90% within minutes. In addition, it can significantly reduce the appearance of acne scars, stretch marks, rosacea and enlarged pores.
All talk, no action? No way! This is the real deal. Smooth on the cream. Presto. Instant results—just as the name promises—which can last up to 24 hours.
Tested and approved by the FDA for safety and efficacy, Freeze 24-7 products use GABA (Gamma Amino Butyric Acid), a natural chemical produced by our bodies as a muscle relaxant. In combination with other proprietary ingredients, Freeze 24-7 absorbs into your skin quickly. You can feel it working, your skin tightening.
This is such a great product—and a much more affordable alternative to injectables like Botox®.
Wanting to offer an all-natural product line in my practice, I started working with Osmosis Pur Medical Skin Care about two years ago. I can’t say enough about these cutting-edge products—free of artificial irritants, parabens and sulfates. And, I appreciate that Osmosis doesn’t test its products on animals.
I love Osmosis Clarify. This acne serum has five oil-reducing powerhouse ingredients. Achieving balanced oil production—not too much, not too little—is important because while some oil is necessary for healthy skin, bacteria feed on oil. I know, a little gross to think of, but the bacteria living on our skin plays a vital role in our skin’s natural defensive mechanisms, yet too much oil and now the bacteria throwing a party and the result… acne. For those battling acne, Clarify helps balance and soothe the skin, without the harsh stripping and drying effects of many acne products. That’s important because damaged, dehydrated skin can also trigger the cycle of excess oil production again.
Osmosis founder, Dr. Ben Johnson, believes skincare should focus more on the dermal (middle) layer of the skin, not the epidermis (the upper, outer layer). So, most Osmosis products—including Clarify—contain Phospatidylcholine and Retinaldehyde. The first is a liposome which helps increase a product’s penetration into the skin by up to 1000% and deliver the active ingredients to that dermal layer. The second is the most natural form of Vitamin A, which maximizes stimulation of collagen and elastin with minimal irritation.
With products for all skin types, Osmosis has truly changed not just my skin, but also that of my clients.
LATISSE™ Eyelash Treatment
Girlfriends, science has finally answered your request for longer, fuller eyelashes!
The company that brought us Botox® now offers LATISSE™, the first FDA-approved, prescription treatment for achieving longer, thicker, darker eyelashes. With daily application of the solution to the upper eyelid (just like eyeliner), you should see results in as little as four weeks—for only about $4 a day.
This product is the best of innovation combined with research. Although scientists haven’t identified the precise mechanism of action, research suggests that the growth of eyelashes occurs by increasing the percent of hairs in—and the duration of—the anagen (or growth) phase. LATISSE™ contains the active ingredient, Bimatoprost, which prolongs that growth phase.
LATISSE™ is one of those “finally” products, as in, finally… a solution! A solution developed through years of research by Allergan, a pharmaceutical leader with over 60 years of expertise in prescription eye care products.
Colorscience Sunforgettable SPF 30 Brush
If you’re tired of sunscreens that are messy, sticky or worse, those that burn your eyes and cause acne, look no further.
Sunforgettable is a clear powder SPF that comes in its own refillable brush applicator—making sun protection easily portable. For years I’ve searched for a sunscreen that is non-irritating to the sensitive skin of rosacea clients, that does not cause breakouts for clients with oily skin and that isn’t chalky looking on my clients with darker skin. This is it. The perfect SPF for everyone.
Recommended and approved by the Skin Cancer Foundation, Sunforgettable relies on the reflective and refractive properties of micronized titanium dioxide and zinc oxide. Safe for all ages, odor free and colorless, this product won’t burn your eyes when you perspire and it’s easy to apply… just brush it on.
Most chemical-based SPF lotions create a “mask,” which causes the skin to hold in heat, not allowing the skin to breathe. This causes inflammation—the root of most skin issues. Sunforgettable doesn’t mask the skin, yet, with its superior coverage, sun protection is instantaneous, so you never have to wait to head outdoors. Also, since you can apply it directly over makeup, carrying this handy brush in your bag makes reapplication every 2-3 hours—as recommended—convenient.
I just know you’ll share my love of these products, so I hope you will try at least one. And, once you love them as much as I do, spread the word among your girlfriends because every woman wants to know about great skincare products.
