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.

How to Stay Hydrated During the Cold Weather

Posted by Matthew Eng on

Ready for winter? Here are five steps you can take to stay hydrated during the cold weather this season!

 

Drink plenty of water

It can be easy to forget to drink water during the winter months. We simply don’t feel as thirsty without the heat! Often, we don’t notice that we have allowed ourselves to get dehydrated until we start seeing physical symptoms, such as chapped lips, brain fog, muscle cramps, and sluggish digestion. Staying in a dehydrated state while it’s cold and you are not getting as much vitamin D from the sun also contributes to a weakened immune system. If the thought of chugging cups full of cold water during the winter is not appealing to you, that’s ok, you have other options! Try drinking room temperature water, or even hot water (as herbal tea or with added lemon for flavor). As much as we hope that it would, coffee doesn’t fit into this category, unfortunately, since caffeine is a dehydrator.

 

Eat hydrating foods

You can add hydrating foods to your diet during the winter to help. Soup is a great option, as it combines the hydration of a nourishing broth with the comfort of a warm, filling meal!

 

Use a rich moisturizer

Our faces are not the only skin that feels the effects of the cold air! To lock in as much moisture as possible to your skin, try using a rich moisturizer all over your body while your skin is still damp from a shower. Our Isoflavonia body lotion is the perfect choice to retain and add moisture where your skin needs it most. For your face, try our Night Replenisher to help replenish lipids in your skin as you sleep.

 

Look for extra hydrating ingredients in your skincare, such as hyaluronic acid, glycerin, ceramides, urea, panthenol.

Hyaluronic acid is one of the most powerful hydrating ingredients in skincare. It acts like a sponge, holding moisture molecules in the skin for a long period of time, keeping you hydrated all day long! Because the molecules are smaller and lighter, hyaluronic acid works best when it is used directly against the skin for optimal absorption and then sealed with a heavier moisturizer.

 

Keep a humidifier going

The dry and often stagnant air from central air furnaces takes a toll on our skin during the winter! We can combat this by keeping a humidifier going in our homes or offices. If space is an issue, you can get personal-sized humidifiers that are perfect for smaller office spaces!

 

Avoid super hot showers

Hot water can diminish your skin’s natural barrier and cause it to lose hydration and natural oils. This tip is tough to implement since there is nothing better than a long, hot bath on a cold day, but I promise, it makes a difference! If you are like me and simply can’t give up baths, try sticking to no more than once a week to give your skin a chance to replenish its natural oils in between.

 

By implementing even one or two of these tips, you can be confident that your skin will stay as happy and healthy as possible all winter long!

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.

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.
