Best Dry Skin Solutions for Menby Peter Minkoff

People with dry and sensitive skin are the ones who first experience the magic of winter – windy weather often makes their skin unbearably tight and dehydrated. If you’re one of those people – welcome to the club. Stay with us and find out about five dry skin solutions for men that’ll save you this winter!

Don’t go for long, hot showers – take short ones

We can all agree that a long, hot shower (or even a bath, if there’s time) is one of the best ways to finish off a day. However, the truth is that hot water is not nearly as beneficial as we think. In fact, it can do more harm than good by stripping your skin of its natural, protective layer of oils that stop moisture from vanishing from it. That can consequently make your skin even drier and flakier. The good news is that you can prevent that by shortening your shower time and using lukewarm water only.

Best Dry Skin Solutions for MenAvoid using soap and fragrances

If soap is your go-to product when it comes to taking a shower, you may want to rethink using it. First of all, soap can be very aggressive towards your skin – it dries it out to the max. Even the products that contain it are highly likely to make your skin condition even worse. The same goes for added fragrances – the more pleasant the smell, the more irritants it’s likely to contain. Just make sure to find an alternative and you’ll be fine.

Pay extra attention to clothes you’re wearing

Updating your winter wardrobe is a huge must for many men, and if you’re one of them – you’re at the right place! Choosing your perfect pieces such as stylish shirts and trendy sweaters is more than just keeping up with trends – fabrics matter more than you think! People with dry and sensitive skin are the ones who realise the importance of high-quality fabrics, especially during winter. If it feels itchy the moment you put it on, your skin’s reacting to the material, so it would be the best to take it off immediately. You can never go wrong with cotton, whereas wool shouldn’t perhaps be your first choice.

Best Dry Skin Solutions for MenSlather on moisturiser

Even though dry skin can appear almost everywhere – from abdomen, arms, and legs, to hands and feet – it’s commonly detected right on the face. A sensation of tightness is its first symptom. This can get extremely unpleasant and even painful, which is exactly why slathering on a good moisturiser is an absolute must as soon as temperatures drop. Hydrating masks are also a good choice, especially for those with extreme cases of dryness. Using Skinstitut products is highly recommended since they deeply hydrate and repair dull and irritated skin, which makes them perfect for men with extremely dry skin.

Quit smoking

Like it or not, the fact is that smoking affects your skin in more ways than you can possibly imagine. Besides accelerating the process of ageing, it will also worsen your skin condition by making your skin drier and even more sensitive. If you’re a smoker, your face inevitably spends a lot of time surrounded by smoke. The consequences won’t be visible immediately, but rather over time. Similar to your teeth and fingers that are highly likely to go disgustingly yellow, your skin will end up with enlarged, clogged pores, with an obvious discoloration and become extremely dry. That’s not exactly what you want, right?

Dealing with dry skin can be a bit tricky, especially during winter, when low temperatures and windy weather simply don’t let you stay nourished and hydrated. However, you can actually do something about it in just a few simple steps. Carefully picking materials, slathering on moisturiser, quitting smoking, and avoiding hot baths, as well as soap and fragrances, are absolute musts – you’ll see a magical improvement if you decide to follow these steps. Good luck!

Refresh Your Skin for a Radiant Summer with PRP

Refresh Your Skin for a Radiant Summer with PRP

PRPLove the idea of rejuvenated skin but hate the thought of invasive treatments? Refresh your skin the natural way with Platelet Rich Plasma Transfer (PRP) to give your skin a boost ready for summer.

A natural method of facial rejuvenation available at Skin Institute, PRP can restore your youthful glow. The two-hour, in-clinic treatment uses your body’s own resources to improve the tone of your skin, and enhance radiance and luminosity.

The ideal choice if you don’t want a treatment that involves a dramatic change in your look, PRP gives your skin a subtle refreshment, harnessing your skin’s own healing powers for better looking skin without altering your facial shape or expressions.

Used by the Skin Institute’s own surgeons for years to accelerate healing after reconstructive surgery, PRP has recently emerged as a treatment to help improve the appearance of the skin. PRP is unique in that it accelerates the body’s own repair systems to heal your skin by using your body’s own ‘serum’ rather than injecting something else into your face. It’s a safe and simple treatment. Bottom line – you can relax knowing you are helping your skin to repair itself more effectively.

The PRP procedure uses your own blood (a small amount is taken from your arm, similar to a blood test), which is spun in a centrifuge to separate out the plasma from your red blood cells. The platelet rich plasma is then reinjected back into the areas of concern on your face and neck.

What can you expect? Just as your muscles need time to respond to an exercise program, it takes time for skin cells to manufacture new tissue. After a PRP treatment you’ll see a gradual improvement in texture, radiance and tone. Over time, as the plasma gets to work beneath the surface to activate your cells to manufacture new collagen, you’ll notice improvements in your skin quality.

PRPSkin Institute Appearance Medicine expert, Dr Sarah Hart, says clients love PRP because it uses their body’s own natural resources to achieve results.

“It’s the perfect treatment if you’re looking for refreshment and radiance rather than a dramatic change in shape and contour,” she says. “Many people are apprehensive about stronger wrinkle-removing treatments such as Botox or dermal fillers, and find the subtler results of PRP better for their needs.”

One of the better treatments available for improving neck skin, PRP is also a popular choice due to its minimal side effects. A simple, safe procedure, because PRP is extracted from your own blood, there is minimal risk of reaction.

Skin Institute offers three different types of PRP so you can choose the procedure that’s right for you. PRP is your own plasma injected back into the skin. Completely natural, with the subtlest results, it can make your skin feel softer and give radiance.

PRP plus dermal needling is also an all-natural treatment, which induces the production of collagen and reduces the appearance of pores and scars, smoothing the skin’s texture.

“The best evidence for visible results with PRP is when it is combined with other treatments like dermal needling or fractional laser” says Dr Hart. “PRP plus dermal needling gives you a double dose of collagen induction to maximize your result.”

If your skin is in need of more nourishment to combat dehydrated and crêpey looking skin, up the ante with PRP Matrix. Blood is collected in a ‘Matrix’ tube that also has hyaluranon in it. A potent hydrator which forces the skin to activate even more of its own healing properties, hyaluronic acid is mixed with PRP and both are injected back into the areas of concern on your face and neck. The addition of injected hyaluranon provides extra hydration to help achieve radiance and luminosity.

With more than 20 years’ experience in caring for skin health, Skin Institute are at the forefront of the latest and most innovative appearance medicine techniques. Dr Sarah Hart says the fact that a registered nurse or doctor must administer PRP is the reason why it is not available at mainstream appearance medicine clinics.

“At Skin Institute our clinics are unique in that they are all medically led. PRP is becoming incredibly popular at Skin Institute for exactly this reason; we have a team of highly trained medical practitioners and have the specialist centrifuge equipment available at a number of our clinics.”

PRP is the natural way to achieve refreshed, revitalised, beautiful looking skin this summer season and beyond.

Watch your toneWATCH YOUR TONE – An Essential Step In Your Skincare Routine

You wouldn’t wash your hair and not condition it, so why skip toner after cleansing?

Introducing the New Murad Hydrating Toner, the piece of the skincare puzzle you may not have realised was missing.

If you’re unsure whether toner is a necessary step in your daily skincare routine, then Murad’s Hydrating Toner will change your mind. Specifically designed to replenish lost moisture and refresh skin, this lightweight mist works to rehydrate your compexion while restoring the skin’s natural PH balance, allowing the skin to better absorb topical treatments like moisturisers and serums while also neutralising surface impurities.

Dr. Howard Murad, founder of Murad Inc, says toner is the step that completes the cleansing process and is beneficial for the overall health of your complexion.

“Given how busy we all are these days, people tend to rush through the cleansing process, and toners can remove any impurities that may not have been washed away during cleansing,” says Murad.

Formulated without any of the nasties like Parabens, Sulfates or Phthalates, the nourishing formula contains Lecithin and Grape Seed Extract to lock in moisture and restore suppleness, Chamomile, Peach and Cucumber Fruit Extracts to soothe irritation and soften the skin, Vitamins C and E act as a powerful antioxidant protection while Osmolytes help to regulate water balance for optimum hydration levels.

TO USE: Every day after cleansing, generously spritz over face and neck, gently wiping away excess moisture with cotton pad. For best results, follow with your daily moisturiser or serum.

Murad’s Hydrating Toner is scientifically proven, dermatologist developed, and tested on people, not animals. Available exclusively at Caci nationwide.

Chemicals in cosmetics absorb into body in 26 seconds

Chemicals in cosmetics absorb into body in 26 seconds

Start your Spring Equinox detox with Inika Cosmetics

On average, it takes only 26 seconds to absorb chemicals found in cosmetics into the bloodstream[1].

U.S researchers identified 10,500 industrial chemicals used as cosmetics ingredients, including carcinogens, pesticides, reproductive toxics, endocrine disruptors, plasticizers, degreasers and surfactants[2].

Spring is the most popular time for people to undertake a detoxification says natural nutritional therapist, Bridget Lem.

“The Spring Equinox is the time for rejuvenation and new life and is a natural time for us to achieve an optimal cleanse with our bodies,” says Mrs Lem. “Detoxing is not only about your digestive system, it’s about cleansing your overall being.

“Given the skin is our largest organ, it makes sense to detox what we are putting on our skin too,” she says.

Inika Cosmetics was awarded one of the highest safety ratings in the world by the Environmental Working Group. All Inika Cosmetics products are certified organic and free of harmful chemicals and Inika Cosmetics CEO Tony Rechtman believes that’s why it’s the best brand to have on your skin 12 hours a day, 5 days a week.

“For those wanting to detox their skin but still wanting to wear makeup Inika is the perfect choice,” says Mr Rechtman.

Originally created by founder Miranda Bond who suffered from endometriosis and infertility, Inika enabled Miranda to detoxify her cosmetics and life.

Three months following her new chemical free regime, Miranda fell pregnant. “Derived of rock and minerals Inika allows for clean living, starting with your skin and it also prevents any possible, and unknown, harm coming from the 21.9 grams of lipstick women ingest per year”, says Tony.

The most common harmful chemical found in everyday cosmetics is the dreaded Bismuth Oxychrloide, – an ugly filler that is chemically connected to arsenic. “You could have a damaging heavy metal element on your face right now without knowing it,” says Mr Rechtman. “People who find their skin to be constantly irritated, itchy, bumpy with clogged pores, whiteheads and extreme blackhead problems are using product that contain Bismuth Oxychloride. In cosmetics, Bismuth is used as a pearlising agent giving a high shine with an unnatural glow that causes foundations to slide off the face if not buffered into the pores,” says Mr Rechtman.

Three tricks for acing summer skin

Three tricks for acing summer skin
Three tricks for acing summer skin
1. Postie’s No7 from Boots Protect & Perfect Day Cream – RRP $20
2. Postie’s Botanics from Boots SPF 10 Daily Hand Therapy Sunscreen – RRP $10
3. Postie’s No7 from Boots Cleansing Body Polish – RRP $14

Summer means showing a little more skin and spending a lot more time outdoors. It also means changing up your skincare routine to make sure your skin is protected against the harsh New Zealand sun. Here are a few tricks to help you ace beautiful summer skin with these loved favourites from Boots UK.

1. Before you choose to lunch alfresco, consider that at midday, sunrays are 10 percent UVB (the burning rays) and 90 percent UVA (the ageing rays). Both contribute to skin cancer. Seeing as you can’t avoid the sun completely, Postie’s No7 from Boots Protect & Perfect Day Cream combines the protective power of SPF 15 and 5*UVA to give your skin advanced protection against the ageing effects of harmful sunrays while the firming pro-retinol complex containing lipopeptides works to help boost and maintain elasticity.

2. Road trips are a summer highlight, but having your hands on the steering wheel all day exposes them to harmful and ageing UVA rays. Invest in a SPF hand cream and apply at least 20 minutes before driving and regularly throughout the day. Postie’s Botanics from Boots SPF 10 Daily Hand Therapy Sunscreen helps protect against free radical damage and premature skin ageing.

3. As you take your bikini out of hibernation you might worry about how your skin is looking after months of being covered up. Use Postie’s No7 from Boots Cleansing Body Polish to get your skin looking up to scratch again. Fine exfoliating particles buff away dead skin cells to help reveal soft and radiant looking skin so you can rock that bikini with confidence.

Creating a beautiful skin

Creating a beautiful skin

Creating a beautiful skinAdvice with integrity to create beautiful skin through optimal skin health

By Corinna Gerber

 

Whether your wedding theme is designed around brilliant white sands or soft silk and luxurious lace, a beautiful and radiant skin is on the top of every wedding wish list … and so it should be!

Whether you are the bride, mother of the bride, part of the wedding party or one of the special guests, everyone wants to look gorgeous. Creating a flawless canvas for your wedding makeup is achievable, if planned well in advance, resulting in picture-perfect photos and stunning memories. Most people prefer lighter, more natural makeup, and how your skin looks and feels ultimately determines the type of makeup you will wear.

The longer you have, the better prepared you can be. With the right guidance, caring for your skin can be straightforward and simple, providing rewarding results, and a skin that delivers compliments and confidence.

In my opinion, a beautiful skin is created from a combination of aspects that originate from a healthy skin. Here are a few strategies and tips to get you started:

–       Make time for downtime

Enjoy consistent facial treatments to de-stress and keep your skin nourished and healthy! Choose a professional therapist who is trained to provide expert advice and who can offer the most effective skin treatments available, customised to your age and condition. The right therapist will be committed to helping you overcome your skincare concerns and inspire noticeable change to achieve your skincare goals.

Creating a beautiful skin–       Be serious about skincare

Our skin is a reflection of who we are; it changes and evolves over time, just as we do. My philosophy is simply to combine the synergy of science together with my skills and expertise, to deliver treatments and home care designed to meet your personal requirements, within an affordable and uncomplicated routine. A quality and easy to manage skin care regime is achievable for everyone.

–       Eat well and nourish your way to great skin

Stock your pantry with the right snacks, like nuts and seeds, fruit high in vitamin C, pomegranates, tomatoes and even the odd piece of dark chocolate. These healthy options contain vital nutrients to help boost skin’s natural moisture and essential antioxidants. Not only are these options good for your skin, but they can also be healthy treats in a calorie-controlled diet … just perfect!

–       Exercise and fresh air

Take advantage of the natural beauty that is close to where you live; stroll along a beach or through your local park. Yoga and Pilates are becoming increasingly popular forms of exercise and offer the dual benefit of relaxation. Building up a sweat helps flush cellular debris out of the system, almost like cleansing your skin from the inside. Exercise aids circulation, which helps to keep your skin healthy and vibrant.

Creating a beautiful skin–       Ease Stress

Preparing for a wedding can be a busy and stressful time with smaller get-togethers leading up to the big event, as well as a honeymoon that you still want to look your best for. By creating a self-care ritual and allowing yourself a few minutes at the start and end of each day to develop a consistent skincare regime, you will discover rewarding results, a definite improvement in your skin, and a happier and more relaxed you!

Microbeads Off The Menu

Microbeads Off The Menu

Microbeads Off The MenuWhile many multinational beauty companies are pledging to phase out plastic microbeads, one multimillion dollar Kiwi skincare company is leading the charge in New Zealand with the launch of its new microbead-free exfoliator.

Xtend-Life Natural Products’ Age-Defying Exfoliator Scrub refines and renews skin without using plastic microbeads that contaminate the world’s waterways and oceans.

The 5 GYES Institute, Microbeads: Face to Fish

  • A tube of face wash can contain over 330,000 microbeads
  • 1,147 personal cleansing products around the world contain micro-plastic particles abrasives (microbeads), employed as an exfoliant
  • 663 species of marine wildlife are affected by plastic pollution through ingestion or entanglement
  • Micro-plastic particles attract other pollutants in the environment including PCBs, flame-retardants, and other industrial chemicals
  • Many sewerage treatment facilities do not capture synthetic, floating particles the size of microbeads that are only about 0.5 mm in diameter
  • During heavy rains some treatment facilities let sewerage overflow directly into ourwaterways
  • 43,000 plastic particles per square kilometre were found by 5 Gyres in Lake Erie – the fourth largest of the five Great Lakes in North America
  • A single plastic particle can absorb up to 1,000,000 times more toxic chemicals than the water around it

Microbeads are tiny, non-biodegradable plastic particles made of polyethylene that absorb toxins from other pollutants and contaminate the world’s water supply. They pose a significant threat to all marine ecosystems and are readily consumed by various species of aquatic life, passing directly into the food chain.

Many water treatment plants in New Zealand and around the world are not equipped to filter or breakdown synthetic, floating plastic particles, says Xtend-Life founder and chairman Warren Matthews.

“Plastic microbeads replaced natural abrasives such as pumice due to their low cost and have made their way into thousands of personal care products,” he says. “These products are washed down drains and enter the world’s water supply where they can survive for more than 100 years.”

Xtend-Life refuses to use plastic microbeads in any of its products, formulating its new Age-Defying Exfoliator Scrub from naturally-derived volcanic stone pumice and powdered apple peel.

“When it comes to environmental matters, too often people make commitments promising to do things in the future,” says Xtend-Life beauty ambassador Angela Stone.

“But with man-made waste applying serious pressure to our natural resources, we feel this is simply not good enough. We’ve already seen the impacts larger plastics have had on our marine life, but mircoplastics are even more widely dispersed. Once ingested, these compounds and anything they have absorbed can move up the food chain.”

The Netherlands was the first country to announce its intent to ban the manufacture and sale of cosmetic products containing microbeads by 2016. New Jersey passed its own bill banning the use of microbeads in personal care products and over-the-counter drugs last month (23 March 2015), becoming the second U.S. state, behind Illinois, to do so.

Warren says a prohibition against mircoplastics is the only way to prevent pollution and further damage to our waterways and fragile marine ecosystem.

“We urge the New Zealand government to join us in our fight to stop the manufacture and sale of plastic microbeads in all personal care and consumer products in this country,” he says.

Microbeads are found in scores of personal care products including toothpaste, face and body cleansers, sunscreens, shampoos, soaps and moisturisers, but Warren warns these polyethylene beads can actually tear the skin.

Xtend-Life proudly stands behind its claim of not using microbeads or any synthetic ingredients that could potentially harm the environment.

Xtend-Life’s Age-Defying Exfoliating Scrub is designed to exfoliate, refine and renew the skin without damaging the environment. Its unique combination of coarse and fine grinds of rhyolite – a natural volcanic stone pumice – and powdered apple peel removes dead skin cells, unclog pores and support healthy circulation beneath the skin to reveal a natural, healthy glow.

The product has a light, natural scent and is packed full of natural ingredients including Manuka honey, Shea butter, jojoba oil, grape seed oil, Kiwifruit extract and avocado oil to nourish the skin.

Angela says Xtend-Life is breaking way from the perception that exfoliators should only be used to combat young, oily and/or acne prone skin.

“While our exfoliator is suitable for those skin types, it is also formulated with moisture rich emollients, beautifully soothing oils and fruit extracts to nourish the skin without leaving it greasy,” she says.

“It is the perfect product to buff away dead skin cells to leave your skin feeling smooth, moisturised and radiant. The best part is with each and every use, you can feel good knowing that you are not applying toxic chemicals to your skin or contaminating the world’s waterways and oceans.”

Stone says the older a person, the more they should exfoliate.

Xtend-Life recommends that 25 to 35-year-olds should exfoliate once each week, while 35 to 45- year-olds should exfoliate twice and those aged over 45 years, three times per week. As skin can be sensitive after exfoliating, it is best to follow-up with Xtend-Life’s Restorative Night Cream.

Xtend-Life Natural Products promotes marine conservation and advocates against the use of harmful cosmetic ingredients via its website www.xtendoceanlife.org.

To align with this year’s 45th anniversary of Earth Day (22 April 2015), Xtend-Life has launched a new-look Xtend-Ocean Life website which now features valuable, educational resources for children.
