Janssen Collections for Fabulous Fall Skin

Posted by Matthew Eng on

Much too soon, summer is waving goodbye as the sweaters and pumpkin treats make their appearance once again. As the humidity dips in the air, this is the perfect time to start preparing your skin for the harsher winter months. Drier air means that the outer layer of your skin can get damaged more easily, but there are a few things you can do to keep it balanced as the weather shifts. Remember, a little bit of prevention goes a long way!

 

  1. Gentle exfoliation. While very important and effective when used properly, it can be tempting to over-exfoliate as skin shows more signs of dryness. There are two types of exfoliation: physical and chemical. Whichever one you use, make sure to be gentle so that you just remove the very top layer of dead skin cells. Aggressive exfoliation can lead to micro-abrasions in your skin that leave it open to bacteria and other irritants. For physical exfoliation, try our Intensive Face Scrub, made with finely ground peach granules. For chemical exfoliation, try our Brightening Exfoliator or our Skin Refining Enzyme Peel.

 

  1. Hydration. When the winds pick up, the furnaces kick on and the wood stoves are lit. Cozy fall is right around the corner! Unfortunately, the wind and dry heat also suck the moisture from our skin so much faster! Stay ahead of the game by switching to a richer moisturizer now. 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!

 

  1. Don’t slow down on sunscreen. Just because the sun is filtered through the beautiful yellow and orange trees instead of beaming down on us with the summertime intensity doesn’t mean that it is doing any less damage to our skin. Sun protection is just as important in the fall (and winter!) as it is during the summer months. Our Face Guard uses a mineral shield rather than a chemical sunscreen to protect your skin from the harsh UV rays, no matter what time of year it is.

 

  1. Take extra care with certain areas. Some skin is thinner and more sensitive, such as the skin under our eyes, on our eyelids, and our lips. Look for products that are specially made for these areas, and that focus on hydration! Try our Rich Eye Contour Cream around the delicate eye area. With oat extract, macadamia nut oil, hyaluronic acid, and vitamin A, this lightweight cream works hard to hydrate all day or all night long! Our Tricare Eye Cream shares those benefits, but is also formulated for mature skin, and contains ingredients that help combat fine lines and wrinkles.

 

With the right care, and a couple of easy prevention steps, you can assure that your skin will enjoy the fall season as much as you do!

How Janssen Can Protect Your Skin and Keep it Healthy

Posted by Matthew Eng on

Many are looking for the fountain of youth through the latest photo filters or even plastic surgery. But what many don’t know is that the secret to beautiful, long-lasting skin is a consistent regimen designed to protect your skin and keep it healthy. Janssen Cosmetics provides top of the line skincare products that leave your skin beautiful from the inside out. Here’s how you can incorporate our products into your daily routine:  

Cleansing

Cleansing is the first and most important step in your skincare regimen. Without it, you are just asking for a breakout to happen. This is especially important if you wear makeup on a daily basis. You need a clean slate free of oil and dirt to be able to absorb subsequent products properly. Opt for a gentle cleanser that won’t strip away the natural oils from your face. Make sure to wash your face twice daily.

Some products to consider:

  • Mild Creamy Cleanser. Excellent cleanser for dry skin. It is thorough, helps retain moisture, and leaves your skin feeling clean.
  • Clarifying Cleansing Gel. Mild cleansing gel for oily skin. It is specially formulated to tackle excess oil, inflammation, spots, and blackheads.

Toning

Toners are the next products you might want to reach for after you cleanse your face. Contrary to popular belief, toners are actually very gentle on the skin, and they don’t shrink pores. They provide you with a bit of initial hydration and further prime your skin to absorb other products later on. Unlike the other steps in the process, toners are optional. They used to be needed back when facial cleansers were too basic or harsh on the skin. Toners helped bring the skin’s pH back to normal. Nowadays, cleansers are well-formulated enough that toners aren’t as necessary anymore.

Some products to consider:

  • Radiant Firming Tonic. Helps to smooth out the appearance of your skin and refine your pores. You can use this toner and be confident that your skin is ready to face whatever comes next.
  • Purifying Tonic Lotion. Optimized for oily skin. It helps to prevent inflammation, blackheads, and excess oil production.

Exfoliating

At night, you also want to add in exfoliation as an extra step into your skincare process. While you might not realize it, your skin also has its own battles throughout the day. At the end of the day, it is filled with dead skin and clogged with impurities. The cleansing and exfoliating steps help to take this load off.

Some products to consider:

Moisturizing

The next absolutely essential step next is moisturizing. Like cleansing, you want to apply moisturizer twice daily, even if you have oily or acne-prone skin. It keeps your skin barrier healthy and lets the products you’ve applied before work their magic! If possible, apply moisturizer while your skin is still damp. This helps lock in extra hydration in addition to the hydration provided by the moisturizer itself.

Some products to consider:

  • Day Vitalizer. Daily moisturizing cream that hydrates, smoothes, and protects dry skin.
  • Clarifying Cream Gel. With this gel, those with oily skin can worry less about inflammation, oil, and blemishes.

Protecting

Last but not least, you want to seal the deal with sunscreen when finishing off your morning skincare routine. Sunscreen acts like a shield for your face, preventing UV rays from penetrating through. This is also a non-negotiable step. Sunscreen is vital to the longevity and health of your skin. It helps prevent skin cancer and premature aging down the line.

Some products to consider:

  • Face Guard Advanced. Although this is an emulsion and not technically a sunscreen, it protects all skin types from UVA, UVB, IR, oxidative stress, photoaging, and many more.
  • Sun Shield SPF 30. Sunscreen with SPF 30 that protects skin from UVA and UVB rays.
