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.

Why Professional Grade Products are Better Than Store Bought

Posted by Matthew Eng on

Here at Janssen Cosmetics, we strive to create the best products at the best prices for our loyal customers. We believe in creating professional-grade products that do what is promised, and feel good on the skin. That is why our products include innovative active ingredients of the highest quality. Our German Skincare Line has been family-owned and operated for two generations, and since our start in 1990, we have successfully reached over 80 countries around the globe. Our quality skincare speaks for itself, but we want you to try it for yourself!

 

It is often easier to reach for the drugstore brand for your skincare products, or for the products you have been using since your adolescence. Today, we are asking you to make a change. Test out our Professional Grade Skincare and see what a difference the quality can make.

 

As skin changes and ages, its needs also change. This is why it is important to also make sure you are using the proper skincare products. What worked for you when you were a teenager may be leaving you feeling lackluster and may not be working for you now. Janssen Cosmetics is a Professional Grade German Skincare company that focuses on quality ingredients derived from natural sources with the help of science to provide you with quality results that last.

 

Whether you are looking for anti-aging, sun protection, hydration, an ampoule treatment for an extra boost, or anything in between, Janssen Cosmetics has something for every age, every stage, and every skin type.

 

Janssen Cosmetics is transparent about our Professional Grade Skincare ingredients. While every company needs to list their ingredients, Janssen Cosmetics goes above and beyond and tells the consumer what the purpose of the ingredient is. This way, you know exactly what you are putting on your body, and why. Hop on over to the Janssen Cosmetics website to take a peek and find out what quality ingredients make their way into our products and how they work to achieve the results you want.

 

The skin has a delicate pH balance, and Janssen Cosmetics has taken this into account and also lets its customers know the pH balance of products when necessary. This is helpful because some products that are too acidic or too alkaline may not be right for certain skin types.

 

Janssen Cosmetics is proud to use only the best quality active ingredients with high tolerability that also yield visible results. This means that our German Skincare line is suited even for the most sensitive skin, yet powerful enough to create lasting results thanks to our team of dermatologists.

 

Our products are made from ingredients like avocado oil, white lupine extract, vitamin E acetate, algae extract, oat extract, echinacea, red clover extract, shea butter, hyaluronic acid and countless other high-quality ingredients. Each ingredient serves to hydrate, lift, soothe, revitalize, regenerate, refresh, reduce the look of aging and fine lines, and to restore your natural glow, because we all have one!

What Makes Ampoules Unique

Posted by Matthew Eng on

I have always been lucky when it came to my skin. I never really dealt with acne during puberty, and in my teen years and twenties, you could have described my skin as “normal”. Not too oily, not too dry. I would often get compliments from strangers and friends on my skin, and because it was always this way, I brushed them off with a “thanks” and kind of took what I had for granted.

 

Well, I recently turned 30, and everything has changed. I'm experiencing acne for the first time in my life, and my skin has gone from “normal” to “combination” almost overnight. Dry in some spots, oily in others. I had no idea what to do or try to help combat these new skin concerns of mine until I found out about Janssen Professional Grade Cosmetic Ampoules.

 

Ampoules are a unique skincare solution that you can add to your regime when you want to add an extra boost or feel like your skin needs an extra helping hand. I’ll admit, I was a little intimidated at first, but after doing some research and using my first one, I feel like a pro and honestly kind of silly for ever being nervous to try them. In fact, I wish I would have started sooner!

 

Ampoules are potent serums that have been dosed individually in tiny glass vials, so you know exactly how much to use per treatment. This avoids waste and any irritation by accidentally using too much. It keeps the product super fresh and uncontaminated from the outside world (I think we can all be guilty of getting our makeup and skincare products dirty or messy from time to time), so every time you break one of those little glass ampoule vials open, it's like you are using a brand new bottle.

 

Each ampoule vitalizes, tightens, regenerates, firms, soothes, refreshes, revives, hydrates, or detoxifies the skin. These tiny ampoules bring new meaning to “good things come in small packages”.  Packed with good ingredients derived from nature and tested by science, there is something for everyone and every skin type. Since these ampoules are packed full of high-quality active ingredients, an ampoule treatment only lasts a few days to a couple of weeks depending on the type of ampoule. You get lasting results in a very short time period!

 

Janssen Cosmetics German Skincare ampoules have quickly become one of my favorite skincare products, and I recommend them to all my friends and family. I love the ritual of opening the glass vial, and applying the serum and seeing the product work its magic. It adds a couple of minutes extra of “me time” to my busy day, and it always makes me feel pampered and relaxed. I'm all about feeling great no matter what you look like, but it does feel amazing to have people complimenting my skin again!

 

I feel confident going forward knowing that as my skin changes and ages that I have a professional grade skincare line that feels like it was tailor-made for me and whatever needs I may encounter.

Managing Stressful Skin with Janssen Cosmetics

Posted by Matthew Eng on

I think we can all agree that stress is terrible, but do you know what it has to do with your skin? There are 2 ways stress can affect your skin. The stresses of life can disrupt the hormone levels in your body, which can, in turn, show up as damage to your skin. Dryness, dark spots, and breakouts are common signs. External influences stress our skin out more than we realize too! Here’s 5 things that put stress on your skin and how you can combat them with your daily routine. 

 

Tired body, tired skin. The first thing you can do is get a good night's sleep which, I admit, can be difficult when stressed out. Everyone’s sleep needs are different, but aiming for 6-8 hours a night can make a world of difference in how your skin responds to outside stress.

For a truly refreshing experience for tired skin, try our Rejuvenating Mask to soothe your skin while enhancing radiance!

 

Pollution. The rising amounts of pollution around the world escalate the rate at which our skin cells degenerate. Other than UV damage, pollution is one of the most crucial elements to protect our skin from. Products containing antioxidants, like our Anti-pollution cream can help slow the process of damage caused by pollution. It also contains red camilla extract, a natural compound originating in Japan, to strengthen the skin’s natural barrier and prevent further damage.

 

Over-exfoliation. The purpose of exfoliation is to remove the very top layer of dead skin cells, revealing the more radiant skin underneath. It also increases your skin’s ability to absorb serums and moisturizers. However, over-exfoliating can cause problems. The main issue it causes is irritation to the more delicate skin layers. It can also cause micro-abrasions in your skin that bacteria can settle in. To prevent this, exfoliate no more than twice a week, using our Brightening Exfoliator, and hydrate well after with a rich moisturizer such as our Night Cream.

 

Stressed skin can occur in places other than your face too! Try the following products for these common non-facial skin concerns:

 

Flaky skin: Try the Oxygenating Body Scrub to revitalize and reveal smooth new skin! After your shower, pamper your skin with our Vitaforce Ace Body Cream, enriched with valuable vitamins and shea butter to moisturize and protect. 

Dry hands: Try our Hand Care Cream to refresh your stressed hands and cuticles, while protecting them all day long!

Stretch marks: Full of nourishing oils and vitamins, our Stretch Mark Cream is a must to soothe and strengthen your skin!

Decolletage: Looking to firm the skin around your bust, while minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles? Look no further! Our Perfect Bust Formula combines the best ingredients available, including algae bioferment to improve the elasticity of your skin, mangosteen to stimulate the natural lipids under the skin, and hyaluronic acid to improve hydration.  

 

Even implementing a couple of these steps can help ensure that your skin stays healthy no matter what life throws at it.

Janssen Products for Healthy Sensitive Skin

Posted by Matthew Eng on

Sensitive skin is becoming more and more common, even in well-taken care of, healthy individuals. A big reason for this is that at this point in history, our skin is exposed to more environmental and chemical irritants than ever before. Our skin doesn’t recognize these pollutants and works overtime to protect itself, often developing more sensitivity in the process. Other factors that can contribute to sensitive skin are dry weather, allergies, excessive exfoliation, or skin conditions, such as eczema. Our goal is to soothe the irritants while providing a protective barrier to prevent further damage. Taking care of ourselves and focusing on our inner health is a big step we can take to help our body do the best job it can to protect itself. A little help from the outside doesn’t hurt though! Here are a few tips to help.

 

  1. Always remove your makeup. This step is especially important for sensitive skin. Makeup left on your skin can cause irritation, breakouts, and clogged pores. It will also accelerate the aging process. Removing your makeup will prevent bacteria growth and prime your face for the next steps of your skincare routine. Try our Micellar Skin Tonic to remove all traces of makeup while adding essential hydration.

 

  1. Use serums that are developed for sensitive skin. Finding products that soothe and correct while protecting your skin can be a challenge. Some natural ingredients can be too potent and irritate your skin more, while some “sensitive” skin lines contain harmful synthetic ingredients. Look for products with calming botanical additions. Ingredients such as Allantoin, Bisabolol, Vitamin E, and Hyaluronic Acid will provide an extra layer of protection and help your skin be the best it can be! Try our Anti-Pollution Cream and Pro Immune Serum before applying moisturizer for maximum benefits. The anti-pollution cream is formulated to protect and strengthen your skin’s natural barrier with plant-based antioxidants. The pro immune serum stabilizes your skin’s immune cells to help them combat outside stress, such as environmental factors and free radicals.

 

  1. Use sun protection. We all know that sun protection is important, but did you know that the type of sun protection can make a difference too? Chemical sunscreens are absorbed into the skin and can contain potentially harmful chemicals. They also break down after being exposed to UV rays for a while. Mineral sunscreens, on the other hand, don’t break down in the sun. They are minerals that are not absorbed by the skin and provide effective broad-spectrum protection. Try our Optimal Tinted Complexion Cream. It contains iron oxides and titanium dioxide for effective mechanical sun protection throughout your day!

 

  1. Moisturize. Almost all of our products are formulated to be as hydrating as possible, but it is still important to seal all of your skincare in with a good moisturizer. Using it at night is especially effective because it gives your skin a chance to renew itself and rest. Try our Night Replenisher, which is rich in hydrating oils and vitamins.
