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.

Janssen Products for Healthy Glowing Skin

Posted by Matthew Eng on

Age, the seasons, and our health can all have a negative effect on our skin, leaving it dull, irritated, or extra sensitive. With just a few simple steps, we can reveal glowing healthy skin all the time! Skin care is one part science and another part art so the most important thing is that you find something that works for YOU. Let’s look at 8 tips that might help.

 

  1. Drink plenty of water. This will help flush out impurities and keep everything working smoothly. Hydrated skin is happy skin, both inside and out.
  2. A beautiful complexion starts with a healthy diet. Eat a healthy diet full of nutrient rich foods. Fruits and vegetables provide essential nutrients that your skin needs to regenerate healthy new cells, while foods high in protein and collagen help strengthen the elasticity of the skin.
  3. Exercise regularly to improve well, everything! One main thing that exercise improves is the blood flow and oxygenation to your skin. Similar to the benefits of nutrition, this helps your skin regenerate healthier cells that contribute to a glowing complexion!
  4. Use sunscreen every day, even on cloudy days. UV damage can occur in any season or weather. Try our Face Shield or Optimal Tinted Complexion Cream for effective protection against the elements.
  5. Wash your face twice a day. To remove impurities from the skin, wash your face morning and night on a daily basis. A gentle, yet thorough cleanser, such as our Mild Creamy Cleanser will cleanse your face while preserving your skin’s natural moisture barrier. The lotion-like consistency of this cleanser also makes it ideal to remove makeup. Simply use it twice in a row to remove makeup, then cleanse. Our Brightening Face Cleanser can be used in the same way.
  6. Use a rich moisturizer. Our Night Replenisher is perfect for replenishing the natural lipids in your skin with hyaluronic acid, white lupin extract, avocado oil and vitamin E.

 

 

Here are a few other products that will gently exfoliate and nourish, revealing the best skin of your life:

  1. Skin refining enzyme peel for a gentle chemical exfoliation.
  2. Our Brightening Exfoliator is formulated to exfoliate and brighten all in one simple step. With effective ingredients such as citric acid, glycolic acid and titanium dioxide, it is sure to reveal the best skin of your life.
  3. Melafadin cleansing powder. If you’ve never used a cleansing powder, you will love the experience! Simply shake a little into your hand, add a few drops of water, and watch it transform into a luxurious foam that brightens your skin with vitamin C while deep cleansing!
  4. Phase Melafadin Concentrate is our 40-day intensive treatment, designed to brighten and improve your skin’s overall health. The treatment consists of an effective Vitamin C powder, which you mix with a liquid to activate. The liquid contains powerful brightening, soothing and antioxidant compounds to promote an even, radiant complexion.

 

We know that you want the most effective skin care to achieve a healthy glowing complexion, and we are confident that a combination of these tips and skin care will help you find it in no time!

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 Men Can Benefit from Janssen Cosmetics

Posted by Matthew Eng on

Many people seem to believe that men are not prone to the same skincare issues women face every day. In reality, it is actually the opposite but not spoken about as much. Men do suffer from the same skin problems, and many are just beginning to realize the importance of skincare to their overall health. It is now becoming the norm for men to pay attention to their skin, and everyone in the industry has embraced it. Janssen Cosmetics has developed a wide range of products called MEN, which addresses the skincare needs of the modern man. See how this exclusive line can benefit you or a man in your life.

Get rid of blemishes

We’ve all been there. One day you wake up to find some pimples and zits that seem to just come out of nowhere. Everyone has experienced blemishes at some time or another. Although it is a normal part of our skin, it can still be super embarrassing. Many men start skincare routines solely because of this, which is not a bad thing! Skincare can help you remove blemishes so that you can be more confident in yourself.

The Purifying Wash + Shave is the first step you should take in your skincare routine. This practical wash thoroughly cleans the face and provides a smooth shave. It is especially formulated to help with skin irritation. What is unique about it is that it contains D-Panthenol, a chemical that improves elasticity, promotes the generation of new skin cells, and smooths out skin.  

Keep skin healthy

One of the first and foremost aspects of skincare, in general, is to keep the skin healthy. Your skin is an organ that takes a beating on the daily from your busy lifestyle and other environmental factors. For it to endure throughout time, we need to make sure we take care of it just as well as we take care of other parts of our body. We now know the importance of this because of our growing awareness surrounding skin cancer, which affects about 3.3 million Americans every year.

Part of keeping skin healthy is to keep it moisturized. The Calming Hydro Gel doubles as a moisturizer and aftershave gel. It contains Men’s SuperMoist, a powerful hydrating ingredient that helps skin to retain moisture and calm down any irritation from razor burn.

Reduce signs of aging

While aging is a natural part of life, most of us want to reduce its signs as much as possible. It shows up most prominently on our face in the form of wrinkles and fine lines due to the loss of collagen. Taking care of the skin with the appropriate products can help men reduce any current wrinkles or fine lines and prevent new ones from appearing in the future.

The 24/7 Skin Energizer brings back youth to your skin. It is an anti-aging cream that provides excellent moisturizing capabilities and helps prevent signs of aging. Like the Calming Hydro Gel, it also contains Men’s SuperMoist to pack in as much hydration into the skin as possible. With the 24/7 Skin Energizer, you will be able to take on the world again from a fresh perspective.

Look refreshed

If you’ve had a particularly sleepless night from work, you might be looking at some raccoon eyes in the mirror the next morning. As you grow older, it seems like eye bags become more noticeable no matter how much sleep you get. It can be difficult to control this even with the best skincare routine.

However, the Energizing Eye Roll-On will instantly bring back life into your tired eyes. The unique rolling ball applicator delivers SPECIMEN and Men’s Eye Perfecting Complex, two anti-aging ingredients that target the culprit of dark circles and wrinkles.
