Skincare Innovations: Eyelash Extensions, a New Skin Care Trend










Sacramento, CA (PRWEB) December 31, 2007

For anyone tired of applying coat after coat of mascara to get long lashes, this trend may be the answer. Skincare-News.com’s latest article, “The Eyes Have It,” shows that semi-permanent and permanent eyelash extensions are a hot beauty trend that is quickly gaining a loyal following. http://www.skincare-news.com/articles.php?ArtID=481

More realistic looking than false eyelashes, and also longer lasting, eyelash extensions can be made from a variety of materials, such as mink, human hair or even synthetic fabric and when done properly. Salons and spas are offering a plethora of eyelash extension options to suit every taste and budget.

How are lash extensions different? Firstly, they are individually applied by a trained lash-technician, by hand, onto the last line, ensuring that the placement is precise and conforms to the shape of the eye lid. They will last anywhere from four to six weeks before needing replacement. And, lash extensions end the need for mascara as they are naturally lush and full, day after day.

For a more permanent option, eyelash transplants are also growing in popularity. Eyelash transplants are a form of cosmetic surgery where hair, typically from the scalp, is harvested and then surgically implanted into the hair follicle. Because it is natural hair, these ‘new’ lashes will grow and act like regular lashes, making them an appealing alternative for someone who wants a natural look. Once the lashes are implanted, they will last anywhere from four to six months, depending upon the natural growth cycle of the hair and, will need to be trimmed and maintained during that time. Because the procedure is so new, only a handful of cosmetic surgeons perform the surgery, making it very expensive.

The New Skincare Diet: Vitamin-Rich Skin Care Foods

The New Skincare Diet: Vitamin-Rich Skin Care Foods










Sacramento, CA (PRWEB) January 22, 2008

For anyone who assumes that all diets have to be about denial and portion control, a skincare diet may seem surprising. Skincare-News.com’s latest article, “Diet for a New Skin,” explains that far from restrictive, a proper skincare diet can be easy and delicious.

http://www.skincare-news.com/articles.php?ArtID=495

The smart first step to any new diet is identifying the habits of one’s current routine that are not healthy, and the same is true of a skincare diet. This includes over-consumption of coffee, diet soda, and processed foods, or not eating enough fresh fruits and vegetables. Believe it or not, a diet consisting mainly of processed foods is as bad for the skin as it is for the health. In order for the skin to function optimally, it is important to consume foods rich in vitamins, minerals and botanical ingredients.

Vitamin A, a potent free-radical scavenger, helps the skin heal from wounds, and in the manufacture of new skin tissue. In addition, Vitamin A helps the skin fight blemishes and breakouts, and has been shown to slow the aging process. Necessary for the formation of bones and teeth, Vitamin A is an extremely important part of any skincare diet and can be found in: green and yellow fruits and vegetables, squash, beets, peaches, pumpkin, red peppers, spinach, sweet potatoes, cantaloupe, asparagus and apricots. Deficiencies in Vitamin A can lead to dry skin or hair, acne, night blindness and possibly even respiratory infections.

The next vitamin, Vitamin C (ascorbic acid), is probably one of the most well known vitamins, universally acknowledged as critical to good health and well being. Involved in at least 300 metabolic functions, Vitamin C is a potent anti-oxidant, helps repair and grow tissue, protects against the harmful effects of pollution, boosts the immune system, assists in healing wounds and burns, and may even help to lower blood pressure and LDL (or bad) cholesterol. However, the body cannot produce Vitamin C, making supplementation of this substance through the diet necessary. Luckily, there are dozens of tasty foods that contain Vitamin C, including the most obvious: citrus fruit. Vitamin C may also be found in: broccoli, strawberries, tomatoes, asparagus, pineapple, radishes, avocado, beets, berries, green vegetables, spinach and freshly squeezed orange juice.

CoEnzymeQ10 is a vitamin-like substance sometimes called ubiquinone because it is present in every cell of the body. Reputed to be more potent than Vitamin E, CoQ10 is an extremely powerful scavenger of free-radicals, and is necessary for the production of energy in all cells-skin included. CoQ10 also assists circulation, increases tissue oxygenation and has promising anti-aging effects. Because production of this substance slows down with age, supplementation is suggested by eating peanuts, spinach, beef and especially oily fish such as salmon, which has the highest natural amounts of CoQ10.

The second most abundant element on the earth, Silicon is needed for the formation of collagen and connective tissue, calcium absorption and the healthy growth of hair, skin and nails. In addition, Silicon slows down the again process in tissue and can stimulate the immune system. Ensure any skincare diet has enough silicon by consuming bell peppers, soy beans, oats (rolled and whole), whole grains, brown rice and leafy green vegetables

Zinc helps prevent acne and regulate oil production in the skin, as well as promotes collagen production and the healing of wounds. In addition, zinc is an anti-oxidant, and may help reduce the duration of seasonal colds and flu. Found in poultry, whole grains, sunflower seeds, pecans, lamb, egg yolks, fish, seafood, mushrooms, oysters, lima beans and pumpkin seeds, zinc will not be a difficult mineral to incorporate into a diet.

Finally, one of the most essential elements to the body is also essential to any skincare diet as well-EFA’s, or essential fatty acids. All cells need essential fatty acids; they assist with cell rejuvenation and formation, reduce blood pressure, improve the texture of hair and skin, minimize the risk of blood clots, lower cholesterol and are beneficial in the treatment of the skin diseases eczema and psoriasis. Omega 3’s are mainly found in fresh deepwater fish and fish oils, as well as canola, walnut and flaxseed oil and are extremely beneficial to the heart. Omega 6’s are found in unsaturated vegetable oils: grapeseed, borage, primrose, and sesame, as well as raw nuts, legumes and seeds and are very beneficial in treating skin disorders of all kinds including: acne, blemishes, dryness, blotchiness and sensitivity.

Exfoliation, Extractions and Excoriation

If the words, “exfoliation,” “extractions,” and “excoriation” sound painful, don’t feel alone. To the average person, these words sound like a world of hurt.

There’s nothing like the latest skin care product to motivate one to run to the store and stock up in hopes of attaining revolutionary results. Such is the case with caffeine, an ingredient that has made its début in the last few years. Though it has experienced quite a wishy-washy past – with studies showing benefits and other research castigating caffeine for its harmful consequences – caffeine is now commonly included in a range of beauty products. So, do skin care products that contain caffeine really work, or is it all decaf baloney?

Skincare in Winter: Dry, Cracked Skin Care Solutions










Sacramento, CA (PRWEB) November 15, 2007

With winter weather on its way in, cooling temperatures and dry air are sure to become a skincare concern for most all skin types, causing all sorts of reactions from dry scalp to chapped lips. Don’t wait for the inevitable cracked skin and dry lips. Skincare-News.com’s latest article, “Dry Skin is Never In,” gives tips on how to shield the skin from the drying effects of bitter cold air with fashion and — skincare. http://www.skincare-news.com/articles.php?ArtID=464

The delicate skin of the hands almost instantly suffers at the onset of winter weather. Gloves are a fun, fast and affordable method of protecting the hands from all sorts of dry skin mayhem this year, and are available in almost every color, shape, size, texture, pattern and fabric these days, with specific types designed for specific activities. From throwing snowballs to getting the mail, gloves may be just be the dry-skin solution this winter.

The ultimate tool to protect hands from winter weather? A pair of ‘invisible’ gloves — hand cream. With formulations designed for all skin types, conditions and seasons, hand cream is a beauty staple that should not be forgotten.

A great way to protect an often overlooked, yet very visible area of the skin is wearing a scarf. The skin on the neck and upper chest often shows signs of aging before any other area of the body. A fashionable and functional scarf will protect this delicate area from harsh winter weather and help ward off wintertime chills and sniffles. Finally, pamper the skin on the neck with a hydrating and anti-oxidant rich moisturizer.

Don’t forget to winterize the rest of a skincare routine! Seasonally appropriate skincare protects the skin much in the same way gloves, hats and scarves protect us from the cold. Continue to use a moisturizer with an SPF 15 or higher, even in the cold.

With the right skincare, winter doesn’t have to mean an end to the soft and silky skin people enjoy all summer long.

Skincare for Men: Choosing the Newest Skin Care Products










Sacramento, CA (PRWEB) February 14, 2008

For the average guy, shopping for skincare can seem overwhelming and annoying — dozens of products available, yet how to pick the right one? Skincare-News.com’s latest article, “A Happier Man: In Three Steps or Less,”finds that simplicity is the best way for a man to approach skincare.

http://www.skincare-news.com/articles.php?ArtID=512

1. Cleansing

A clean foundation is the best start to all skincare routines, and men are no exception. skin needs to be cleansed every morning and night with a product that contains active ingredients which will pull double duty. Vitamin C, glycolic acid, green tea, grape seed extract, salicylic acid — all of these ingredients offer the have a multitude of benefits for the skin when included in a cleanser, such as: anti-aging, diminishing fine lines and wrinkles, protection from free-radical and environmental damage, exfoliation and a reduction in blemishes or breakouts. To keep time spent prepping to a minimum and reduce time spent primping, use cleanser in the shower when the skin is already wet and application will be a snap. Simply massage a small amount of product over the face and neck, avoiding the eyes and rinse carefully. Pat dry and follow with moisturizer.

2. Exfoliation

Regular exfoliation of the skin will do more than just keep the skin soft and supple, it will also encourage new cell growth, minimize fine lines and wrinkles and increase the efficacy of all other treatment products. With dozens of different formulations and products, exfoliators are a far cry from the sandpapery versions of the past that were hard to use and damaged the skin. In their place are sophisticated, yet simple concoctions featuring vitamins, minerals, herbs and plant extracts, all designed to soften and smooth without damaging the top layer of skin.

3. Final Touches

After cleansing, treat skin to an anti-aging moisturizer with high levels of wrinkle-fighting and skin smoothing ingredients. Just because men’s skin is thicker and tends to be coarser than a woman’s doesn’t mean it also won’t benefit from some TLC. Fact is, environmental damage, free radicals and pollution do not discriminate and everyone is an easy target to these villains, including men. Pump up the skin’s ability to fight back with a skin-specific cocktail of anti-oxidants, vitamins and minerals.

For a dryer skin, use formulations that include vitamin C, shea butter or olive oil. For men blessed with more normal skin, not too dry or too oily, the sky is the limit! Numerous products are available that will not only keep the skin hydrated and healthy, but minimize the signs of aging, as well. Finally, the number one skincare product that should be in every guy’s hand? Sunblock. Sunblock is a year-round necessity to help ward off environmental damage and prevent fine lines and wrinkles and, can often be used in place of a moisturizer.

Lotion, Cream or Serum: Which is Right for You?

http://www.skincare-news.com/articles.php?ArtID=498

The shelves are lined from floor to ceiling with all kinds of lotions, creams and serums. How does one know how to pick? Not surprisingly lotions and creams have much in common. Both contain humectants to add moisture and hydration as well as emollients to help seal in moisture and protect your skin. One of the biggest distinctions between lotions and creams, however, is thickness. Serums are applied to skin before you put on your lotion or cream as part of your daily routine. They prepare skin and allow the cream or lotion to be absorbed into deeper layers of the skin. Without serum, thick creams may not penetrate deep enough to provide maximum effectiveness. Knowing what to purchase is as simple as understanding how much moisture is needed for a particular skin type.
