Best Products for Post Summer Skin

Posted by Opus Int. on

During the summer months, you are likely to spend a lot more time outdoors, which can increase your risk of sunburn—even when you wear sunscreen. 

Your skin will need some serious TLC after a summer spent in the pool, sun, sand, and surf. In addition, summer days often lead to temptations where alcohol and bad eating habits are present. 

In the summer, your skin is often sun-damaged, dry, chapped, and clogged with dead skin. It's essential to rehab your skin after spending time in the sun and indulging over the summer.

A light callosity has been built on the callused skin due to the sun. Because of this, the skin is usually rough and flaky and needs more moisture. Moreover, UV radiation creates free radicals and reduces collagen fibers, which support our skin. 

It is essential to use one of the best after-sun products in spray, gel, or lotion form to minimize the sting and irritation of overexposed skin and speed up its repair. 

If you are considering a formula, look for ingredients that will soothe your skin, such as aloe vera and antioxidants, as well as hydrate your skin with hyaluronic acid, glycerin, and ceramides. 

Important Post Summer Tips

Check out these helpful tips for post-summer skin care to help erase the signs of summer.

  • To get silky-smooth skin after a long summer season, use an exfoliating body scrub. Skin can feel smooth and soft after using a gentle body scrub, which removes dead surface skin cells and adds moisture. If you want to address UV damage and promote cell turnover on the face, use a gentle face scrub containing glycolic acid.
  • You might have clogged pores after a few months of sweating and applying sunscreen continuously all summer long. Your complexion is negatively impacted by environmental impurities since you have accumulated oil, makeup, sweat, and dirt over the past few months. To minimize pores and draw out impurities, use a good cleansing mask.
  • Your skin is likely in need of some much-needed hydration after months spent at the pool, beach, and in the sun. Add a rich cream or oil to your daily routine to hydrate parched summer skin. Your skin will benefit from formulas that contain ceramides, retinol, and hyaluronic acid.
  • Your skin tone may become uneven, dark spots may appear, and new freckles may appear at the end of summer. UV rays damage your skin when it is exposed to the sun. Vitamin C serums can help counteract the effects of sun damage. Vitamin C serums improve skin texture and tone while hydrating and smoothing the skin.

Best Products for Post-Summer Skin

1. Light Tightening Cream (50ml)

When the weather gets hot, Light Tightening Cream is the perfect skin care product. Boosts your skin's energy, moisturizes it intensively, and counteracts tiredness.

This energy booster stimulates the metabolism of the skin and makes it more resilient and firmer. Skin receives extra moisture and shine is eliminated even though the texture is light.

2. Vitaforce C Cream (50ml)

Boost radiance and prevent premature skin aging with this highly active anti-aging care. An even and youthful complexion is achieved by reducing age spots, improving skin tone, and brightening the skin.

A deep moisturizing effect is achieved. Vitamin C protects the skin from free radicals through the use of a refreshing and invigorating lemon extract. 

Light-induced premature aging of the skin is prevented by vitamin E. It is reviving and toning to use lemon extracts. In the summer, Vitaforce C Cream is ideal because of its fresh fragrance and light consistency.

3. Pro-Immune Serum (30ml)

The serum stabilizes the skin's immune cells to make them more resistant to harmful external influences with active substances. 

Allantoin, bisabolol, vitamins C and D, long- and short-chain hyaluronic acid, as well as beta-glucan and ectoine, are present.

Once or twice a day, gently massage serum into your skin. Apply the serum to your neck and the area above it. Apply your usual day or night care product after the serum has been absorbed.

Pro-Immune Serum can also be used with any other care cream based on your skin's needs. However, it is best used with our Anti-Pollution Cream to ensure the best results. 

4. Hydro Active Gel (50ml)

Providing a fresh, natural glow, the ultra-light moisturizer hydrates the skin deeply. Moreover, it prevents moisture loss for a long time. By hydrating the skin, Hyaluron reduces wrinkles caused by dryness.

In addition to harmonizing the appearance of the skin by reducing irritations, the gel texture has a pleasingly light texture. Consequently, it is the perfect summer care product to enhance the silky softness of your skin and serve as a super base for make-up.

5. Mild Creamy Cleanser (200ml)

Deeply cleanses and removes dirt and make-up from the skin. By preserving the skin's moisture, unpleasant tension feelings are avoided. 

Combining the Radiant Firming Tonic with the rich, gentle cleansing optimizes the skin's preparation for subsequent care.

When wearing heavy make-up, it is recommended to double cleanse with Mild Creamy Cleanser. The cleansing milk should be applied and rinsed off, followed by another application, and washed off with plenty of water.

6. Mild Face Rub (50ml)

To supply the skin with high-quality and nourishing oils, the skin needs to be peeled once or twice a week to loosen dead skin cells. It prevents impurities, refines the skin surface, and allows subsequent care to be absorbed more effectively.

As a result of the gentle peeling, the skin surface is smoothed and noticeable. Skin flakes and superficial cornification are gently removed with jojoba wax beads. 

In addition to providing additional care to the skin, the round abrasive particles dissolve during application. It results in smooth, supple skin that appears fresh and rosy.

Conclusion

A summer day can only be complete if you're soaking up the sun. Nevertheless, your skin may disagree. All too often during the summer months, we experience excessive sun exposure, despite the importance of getting enough Vitamin D. 

Your skin may be suffering if you've enjoyed long days of sunlight, traveled in planes and cars, and generally enjoyed your daily routine more carefree. 

Too much sun exposure and insufficient sun protection lead to dry skin, sun spots, and wrinkles. Now is the perfect time to hydrate, replenish, and restore your skin.

Getting Your Skin Ready for The Winter Weather

Posted by Matthew Eng on

There is a chill in the air, and the wind is blowing the beautiful leaves off the trees. Winter is just around the corner! As the temperatures cool, the humidity in the air dips, and can leave your skin wanting more — moisture, that is! While it’s true that the top layer of your skin is damaged more easily in the cold, dry weather, the good news is, with the right preparation, your skin will barely notice the change in seasons! A few things to focus on to prepare your skin are:

 

Staying hydrated

Hydration is more important now than ever. Dry skin not only gets damaged more easily, but because the top layer of your skin is dry, it makes it difficult for serums and moisture to penetrate through it. Make sure your skincare is as effective as possible by sloughing off the dead skin cells with a gentle exfoliator once or twice a week.  Hyaluronic acid increases hydration by binding to water molecules and holding them in your skin like a sponge. After cleansing and exfoliating, try our Hyaluron Impulse capsules to supercharge your skin’s moisture. Seal the extra moisture in and finish your routine with a rich night cream. For more mature skin, try our Rich Recovery Cream, and for more sensitive skin, try the Night Replenisher. For the ultimate luxurious experience, try our Night Cream, with colloidal platinum, silk acacia extract, lipid complex, and more. We promise you will feel pampered and immediately refreshed!

 

Continue with sun protection

 Even if the sun doesn’t seem as strong this time of year, it’s important to protect our skin before putting on makeup. Try our anti-pollution cream to protect your skin from the elements during the day. Our anti-pollution cream uses compounds such as red camellia extract to strengthen your skin’s resistance to environmental pollutants and Allantoin and Shea butter to soothe and hydrate. For an extra layer of sun protection with the added bonus of light coverage, try our Optimal Tinted Complexion Cream! It provides light coverage to even out your skin tone, helps retain moisture, and has a mechanical sun shield of SPF10.

 

Ultra-rich day/night treatments

If your skin needs a little more than what is listed above, try pampering it to the max with these ultra-rich treatments!

During the day, use our Rich Nutrient Skin Refiner to give a luxurious boost of hydration, along with the extra layer UV protection your skin needs! The oat extract will help lift and firm your skin while you wear it. At night, refresh your skin and help fight the signs of aging with our Night Cream. This rich cream supports the skin’s nightly regeneration process with ingredients such as colloidal platinum to smooth fine lines and wrinkles, and vitamin E to neutralize damaging free radicals.

Finally, top off your winter skincare routine with the occasional application of our Rich Energy Mask! Packed full of the essential vitamins and nutrients that your skin craves during the winter months, this fast-acting mask can be washed off completely or partially wiped off your skin, and the remainder massaged into your skin for an overnight deep care treatment.

Janssen Cosmetics & Mature Skin

Posted by Matthew Eng on

If you are over 50, you have gracefully entered the “mature skin” stage of life. What a beautiful opportunity to be thankful for what your skin has done for you up until this point and possibly reinvent the way you take care of it! Your skin’s job has been to protect you by providing a barrier to the outside damage we come up against every day: pollution, free radicals, and UV rays, just to name a few.

 

As we come up against these and live our lives, a few things inevitably happen. As collagen breaks down, our skin loses elastin, and as a result is more prone to fine lines and wrinkles. Our skin also loses moisture faster, and requires more help to stay hydrated enough to do its job properly.

 

Here’s our 4 flawless skin tips to keep your skin radiant and dewy at any age!

 

Exfoliate.

Exfoliating a couple of times every week after you cleanse will ensure that your skin can absorb any serums or creams you put on it. It will also reveal a smoother, more radiant complexion! You can exfoliate with a scrub, that physically removes dead skin cells, or with a chemical exfoliator, like our Skin Refining Enzyme Peel. This peel uses enzymes to promote the peeling process and reveal smoother skin.

 

Hydrate both inside and out!

If we could only choose one tip for taking care of aging skin, this would be it. Dry skin is much quicker to develop fine lines, wrinkles, and a dull complexion. Keep it plump and dewy by making sure to drink plenty of water. Lock moisture in with a luxurious cream, like our Rich Recovery Cream. Ingredients such as squalene, shea butter, and macadamia nut oil will lock in hydration and protect your skin all day long. Bonus: it protects from UV rays!

 

Be gentle with your eyes.

The skin around your eyes is already thinner and more delicate than the rest of your face and tends to develop fine lines first. Did you know that your eyes and lips are the first places to show signs of dehydration because the skin is thinner? Drink plenty of water to slow the signs of aging around these areas! Another great way to treat fine lines around the eyes is with a product containing hydrating ingredients such as vitamin E, natural oils, and hyaluronic acid. Our Tricare Eye Cream helps to smooth, hydrate and reverse the signs of aging.

 

Maximize sleep recovery.

Our skin is very active at night when it’s in its most relaxed state. Serums and moisture are more easily absorbed into the skin at night. Get the most out of your skin’s sleep recovery with products that are extra targeted to your skin’s needs. Look for products with hyaluronic acid and squalene, as well as a rich moisturizer. Our Night Recovery Serum is an excellent choice.

 A consistent, high-quality skincare routine will not only keep your skin looking and feeling its best, but it also creates a smooth base for beautiful makeup!

Men’s Skincare Routine

Posted by Matthew Eng on

With the popularization of skincare on social media, it is becoming normal for both men and women to take part in this self-care routine. It is just as important for men to keep up with a skincare routine as it is for them to groom. However, most men aren’t aware of the potential benefits of skincare. For starters, it can help you prevent breakouts and aging. But you might be wondering where to start. For those who just started on this new journey, it can be quite a daunting task to find a routine and products that work for them. But don’t worry, we’ve got your back! Here, we’ve outlined all of the important steps to a skincare routine that you can start today.

Step 1: Cleanse

Cleansing is the foundation of your skincare routine. Just like your hands, your face can also come into contact with a lot of dirt, oil, and debris you encounter every day. These impurities can trigger breakouts and inflammation and further irritate your face. Cleansing also preps the skin on your face for the next steps in your routine. Make sure to choose a face wash suited for your skin type. Those with dry skin might want to opt for mild ones, while those with oilier skin should look out for gel cleansers.

Most likely, you might already wash your face at the sink or in the shower. Washing it with a cleanser is not much different. Just put a dollop of the product into your hands and massage it into your face. If you have facial hair, take some extra time to work it into the skin. Then, you just wash it all off. That’s it!

Step 2: Toner

Toners prime your face for moisturizers and other products you might want to use after this step. To apply toner, all you have to do is put some product into your hand and press it into your cheeks, forehead, and neck. This technique helps the skin to absorb the toner better than rubbing it in would. There are various types of toners depending on what your needs are. If you want to target acne or ingrown hairs, find a toner with lactic or salicylic acid. Aging and dark spots are best addressed with toners that contain AHA, BHA, or glycolic acid.  

Step 3: Moisturize

Moisturizer is extremely important to the health of your skin. It helps give your skin that extra boost if your water intake isn’t cutting it. Many guys who are new to skincare routines find it weird how moisturizer feels on their face for the first time. Depending on the product, it can sometimes feel like it is dragging down your face. However, it is important to apply moisturizer twice daily. Although dry skin feels lighter, you would much rather have a hydrated and plump face in the future.

Step 4: Sunscreen

Next up is sunscreen, which is undoubtedly essential to your skincare routine. Although it is not obvious to you now, the sun is actively damaging your skin when you are outside unprotected. UV rays from the sun have the potential to cause skin cancer and speed up the aging process. And again, it might feel weird for you to be piling on sunscreen after moisturizer. If you want to combine these two steps, try finding a sunscreen with hydrating components. If you want to look young for longer, sunscreen is your best bet.
