Janssen Cosmetics & Sensitive Skin

Posted by Matthew Eng on

As the weather is getting warmer and more humid, people often start neglecting to take care of their skin as much as they did in the wintertime. However, now it is more important than ever to continue with your skin care routine. Experts assert that your skin likes consistency, so when the weather changes, your skin will also have to adapt to its new environment. Janssen Cosmetics’ line of products for sensitive skin will ensure that your skin will stay soft and healthy no matter what season you are in!

 

People often associate spring with sneezes and sniffles from all the pollen in the air, but this pollen could also be affecting skin. These allergens create an increased amount of histamines in your blood flow, causing inflammation in your skin. Some ways to mitigate or avoid these issues include eating healthy and drinking lots of water, as this will give your body the necessary nutrients to manage these allergies. Furthermore, you could also change clothes frequently, especially after spending a day outside or shower at night before going to sleep to wash the allergens off of your body. Together with our Soft Soothing Tonic, these practices will ensure that your skin stays as healthy and moisturized. Not only does this alcohol-free face toner clarify and refresh your skin, but it also soothes any kind of irritation, including redness, swelling, and feelings of tightness, keeping you looking and feeling amazing!

 

There are also ways to protect yourself before you start your day. One great and simple way to ensure long-lasting protection on your skin throughout the day is by using our Intense Calming Cream. Not only does this product make your skin resistant to external irritants, but it also regenerates and strengthens your skin’s natural protective barrier. Additionally, this product will be effective all day long, so you won’t need to worry about reapplying throughout the day. Talk about a great bang for your buck!

 

If you live in an area with a lot of pollution, your skin could be paying the price for it. Exposure to pollution has been linked to the development of aging, eczema, psoriasis, acne, and even skin cancer. This is caused by free radicals that break down the skin’s barrier and smaller particles that get stuck in the skin’s pores. Adding the Anti-Pollution Cream to your regimen will help your skin stay healthy when faced with external irritants. This product reinforces your skin barrier and keeps it intact to prevent more pollutants from penetrating through. 

 

Overall, your skin doesn’t have to suffer just because of factors you can’t control. Being comfortable with your skin shouldn’t require over-the-top maintenance, nor does it have to clean out your pocket. The Soft Soothing Tonic, Intense Calming Cream, and Anti-Pollution Cream are only some of the products that Janssen Cosmetics offers for sensitive skin, but they are a great start for anyone looking to make headway in the health of their skin. With our line of products, we are confident that you will be happy with the results and more confident with your skin than ever before!

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.

Janssen Cosmetics and Dry Skin

Posted by Bold Commerce on

Dry skin is described as a skin condition that contains a low amount of hydration and is often marked by an uncomfortable tightness, itchy, and scaly sensation. Although dry skin has numerous causes, it isn’t usually serious and can be alleviated with the right products.

Those who suffer from dry skin will often notice scaling, flaking, irritation, and cracking and one of the main causes of dry skin is low moisture in the air or washing in water that is too hot. Dryness can also be caused by health-related issues, as well as aging and other environmental factors, such as overexposure to the sun.

Those with mature skin or demanding skin will often find dryness to be a common problem when it comes to skin-related issues. Someone who has dry skin can also experience sensitive skin as the skin loses the protective layering needed to lubricate and protect the skin. The good news is that with the right skin care, healthy, hydrated skin is just a product away. Here are some ways that Janssen Cosmetics can help steer you in the right direction to a more hydrated complexion.

 

Heal and Protect

One of the biggest culprits of dry skin is overexposure to UVA/UVB radiation. Although some sun rays has been proven to be beneficial, helping to trigger the development of vitamin D in the body, too much sun can lead to chapped, burning, peeling, itchy red skin and premature aging, which is why our Sun Shield is a great way to moisturize and protect the skin. If you like sunbathing, After Sun Lotion cools, soothes and nourishes your skin with natural oils.

If you want to go a bit deeper, Vita Care Deluxe Ceramide cream works wonders for those with extremely dry skin, which helps to rebuild lipids that have been lost and improves the appearance of rough skin. If you are already experiencing age spots, and an uneven skin tone, our  Vitaforce C Cream  stimulates collagen and elastin production and helps brighten the skin for an even, more  youthful  tone.

 

Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate

It’s so important to hydrate the skin. So much so that without hydration, your skin would become scaly, crusty, and unsightly. If you have dry skin, hydration is especially important since you don’t receive adequate moisture to the skin. Hydration can be obtained in many ways, such as getting enough water, a great way to ensure that your cells are going to get the nutrients they need.  Exercise is another great way to get circulation going.

Our Hydrating Skin Complex works deep within the layers of the skin to hydrate from  within, smooth wrinkling caused by dryness, and improves the overall feel, structure and radiance of the skin. Then you may top that with the Caviar Luxury Cream, which is like black gold for the skin, increasing cell turnover, protecting the skin from free radicals, and inspires smoother skin.

 

Rejuvenate and Illuminate

If your dry skin is causing a dull complexion, sometimes, all you need is a bit of exfoliation. Exfoliation is the process of removing dead skin cells that are in the way of revealing fresh, vibrant skin. Exfoliants come in many forms such as a scrub, which often contains tiny granules to slough away depleted skin, as found in our Brightening Exfoliator. Other forms are contained in the form of a gentle peel, such as our Bio-Fruit Gel Exfoliator, which helps increase cell turnover by gently peeling away the top layer  of the skin. This action is a non-abrasive way of improving the skin’s moisture content, leading to brighter, softer complexion.

Scrubs and peels are a great way to get to the true, radiant you and should always be performed after washing your skin with a great cleanser, such as with our Multi-Action Cleansing Balm, which can also be used as a makeup remover, SOS balm for relieving dry skin spots, and as a moisturizing mask. Prepping the skin prior to exfoliation helps to soften and wash away dirt and grime so that the product will work it’s best

Professional Grade Cosmetics Vs. Standard Cosmetics

Posted by Matthew Eng on

There are those who prefer to purchase all of their cosmetic needs exclusively from dermatologists and renown aestheticians. Then there are some who would prefer to purchase what they need at drug or department stores at a fraction of the price. Whatever you may prefer, there is a broad difference between what standard cosmetics brands offer and what is deemed professional grade.

Wherever you shop, one can find an endless array of cosmetics to meet whatever need there is. Whether you are seeking a quick fix or something more beneficial for the skin, you can become a more savvy shopper by knowing these key differences in professional grade cosmetics and their standard counterparts so that you can look and feel your best.

 

Professional Grade Higher Standards

When it comes to seeking out the best skincare or makeup, ingredients reign supreme to give your skin the best. Since most skincare is worn all day long and night, it only makes sense that healthy, beneficial ingredients that feed the skin will provide vitality and nourish.  Professional grade products typically mean that the products are held to a higher standard and are typically found in your dermatologist office or spas. professional grade is unbeatable as more money is spent on research of ingredients, rather than marketing a name.

Natural ingredients, such as jojoba oils, vitamin C and minerals help to feed the skin while enabling it to breathe, unlike some products that are full of fillers that block pores and cause skin conditions such as blackheads and acne, as found in many standard products.. This is not to say that every professional grade skin care line out there is natural, as some only boast their name and won’t necessarily deliver as promised, but a good quality brand, such as our Janssen Cosmetics line, speaks for itself- sleek and simple, yet big on natural and dermatologically-tested ingredients that impart very effective results.

 

Pros and Cons of Standard Brands

Although professional grade cosmetics containing naturally-derived ingredients with scientifically backed research has its merits, there is something to be said about drugstore brands, especially for those on a budget or who don’t necessarily care for the  latest and greatest thing on the market. However, drugstore and department store  brands don’t always live up to their promise. For one, standard brands are typically market driven and will constantly change, depending on the latest and greatest trend.

While standard brands may look beautiful  in their packaging and smell wonderful, the benefits are sometimes few, lending very little results. These products also tend to contain ingredients that do not feed the skin, but are filled with artificial ingredients that act as fillers that may harm the skin. If you have sensitive skin, you may notice that standard products may irritate the skin.

Another drawback to standard cosmetics is their one-size-fits-all approach. Unlike a dermatologist or med spa esthetician who may examine your skin and make recommendations based on your needs, standard brands aren’t customizable. Asking a skincare consultant at a department store for advice, while useful, is not always as in-depth as something who can take a closer glance and offer products that will help with their own specific needs.

While professional grade cosmetics are typically pricier, the money goes further than with standard cosmetics. Not only are you paying for something that will help your skin further down  the road, but money well spent on professional grade products will actually spread further than paying for product after product, seeking out the one thing that will improve your skin. While both have their merits, it’s important to think long term if you want the skin of your dreams.
