It's been an extremely cold winter here in Portland, which means we have to make sure we're taking adequate care of our skin. Two of our best products for locking moisture in are the Revitalizing Facial Moisturizer for the face and Aloe Therapy Body Creme for everywhere else. Stay warm and moisturized!
For those who are strapped on time, we're sharing a quick twice daily routine (morning and night) so you can easily stick to your new year's resolution of healthy skin.
step 1 / Use a gentle exfoliant such as Essance's Clarifying Nutrient Cleanser to break down and wash away dead skin cells.
step 2 / Tone, tone, tone! Use an alcohol free toner such as Essance's Revitalizing Toner to deliver hydration back to your skin cells.
step 3 / Lightly apply a nickel sized amount of moisturizer in an upward motion.
Synergistically, our Arnica/MSM Creme is a triple threat when it comes to your every day bumps and bruises, along with sprains, strains, and other serious or chronic conditions. In addition to the two main active ingredients, this creme also contains capsicum and peppermint oil. Capsicum is recognized for its warming properties as it increases circulation, stimulates the healing process, and produces an analgesic effect to the tissue. Peppermint helps to stimulate circulation as well.
We have chosen to highlight this fantastic product as we transition into fall because of the wonders it works on those with rheumatoid arthritis. Rheumatoid arthritis is a condition that tends to flare up when the weather turns cold and rainy, although experts aren't quite sure why this is. Ligaments become tighter, causing pain and restrictions in flexibility. Arnica/MSM creme helps to relax tension in the ligament tissue, alleviating some of that pain and restoring flexibility.
Arnica is an herb celebrated for its ability to heal bruising and accelerate tissue recovery. MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane) is an organic compound containing sulphur, which fosters structural integrity in the skin by building the collagen needed to increase elasticity. It is also an active agent in relaxing overcompensated muscle fibers by reducing the oxidative damage that results in pain and inflammation.
Year round runners and athletes will also benefit greatly from incorporating this creme into their workout routines. Pre-workout stretching is essential to warm up muscles and prevent ligament tearing, and is a practice that is often overlooked. Applying Arnica/MSM during this step ensures less stress on your body in both the short-term and long-term sense. Just don't forget to wash your hands after application!
