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.

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.
