Skin Care Product Recommendations

Youthful Skin Bleue Crème, Vitamin C Complex Serum. It is never too early to start taking care of your skin. If your skin is clear, unblemished and healthy, a twice-daily application of an anti-inflammatory moisturizer is recommended after cleansing and toning. This is especially important in the summer when the skin is exposed to damaging UV radiation. Blemished Skin Vitamin B Complex Crème will help heal and repair as well as prevent future outbreaks. Additional anti-inflammatory treatments include The Bleue Crème, The Yellow Crème, Vitamin C Complex Serum, and Vitamin A Liposome Serum. Spot Remover judiciously applied, or a thin layer applied over a larger area anywhere on the face or body, will work to clean out pores, subdue inflammation, heal active blemishes, and prevent blemish formation by stopping it in its tracks. Eye Wrinkles and Dark Circles Essential Eye Crème, Rosehip Serum, Night Line Relief Serum, Vitamin C Complex Serum. The rule of thumb is that serums are most effective for relieving facial lines (wherever they occur) and creams are more effective for puffiness and dark circles. Your individual circumstances will guide you. Use a serum and a cream together for maximum effectiveness, moving towards just one or the other as the situation corrects itself. Creams are often preferred for daytime use and the serums for nighttime repair. Facial Wrinkles and Loss of Firmness Night Line Relief Serum, Rosehip Serum, Carrot Repair Serum, Vitamin C Complex Serum, Vitamin A Liposome Serum, The Yellow Crème, Face Firming Concentrate. Loss of firmness is the most difficult of the aging symptoms to reverse. The serums are excellent for relieving overall dryness and diminishing wrinkles. The creams will decrease depth or occurrence of wrinkles and are particularly formulated with anti-inflammatory firming ingredients. The use of Vitamin A Liposome Serum along with a firming cream is the most effective firming regimen possible. Hyperpigmentation All products that contain Vitamin C also even out skin tone and lighten age spots and other areas of discoloration: Vitamin C and Ginseng Tonic Herbal Rinses, Vitamin C Serum, The Yellow Crème, Face Firming Concentrate, Green Tea Scruffing Milk Cleanser, Essential Earth Elements Cleanser. Psoriasis / Eczema Carrot Repair Serum, Rosehip Serum, Yellow Creme. Recurring anecdotal evidence indicates the success of Rosehip Serum in clearing up crusty patches wherever they occur. Rosacea Rosacea Relief is a synergy of essential oils that has been effective for many in clearing the redness that marks this delicate condition. Anti-inflammatory oils included in Aniba cleanser, toner, and serum are aimed at reducing the causes and symptoms. The Bleue Crème, The Yellow Crème, and Vitamin C Serum are also helpfu. Scars Rosehip Serum, Carrot Repair Serum. Scars are difficult, and take time to evanish, but small amounts of these blends, several times a day, will help fade and heal scars from trauma or surgery. For fresh wounds, start application as soon as the skin has closed and is no longer raw. Older scars take much longer to fade. The Rosehip Serum is not recommended for acne scars. Shaving / Razor Bumps / Ingrown Hairs Vitamin B Complex Crème, Comfrey Tonic Herbal Rinse (ask for a sprayer), Tea Tree Cleansing Gel. Form a smooth skin surface and banish unsightly red bumps that result from shaving irritation or ingrown hairs, anywhere on the body. Skin Tags Carrot Repair Serum. Skin tags are common but harmless skin growths found on the eyelids, neck, chest, wrists, armpits, and groin. The treatments can include freezing them off, cutting them off (see your physician for this), tying off the tag with a thin piece of thread at the base to cut off oxygen supply, or applying essential oil synergies. Stressed / Irritated Skin Vitamin C Complex Serum,  Rosehip Serum, Carrot Repair Serum, , The Bleue Crème. The first rule is to prevent additional irritation. Vitamin C Complex Serum is very healing for sunburned skin. Rosehip Serum is a miracle worker to remove crusty patches.

Happiness. Life lessons from a pandemic.

Inbox musings show there is nothing like a viral life of house arrest dictate to engender bouts of forced introspection.  Socrates said “The unexamined life is not worth living,” but life has a way of happening when we’re too busy to notice. It is the fortunate person who exits the quarantine with some new measure of self-knowledge and perspective.

Ask what they desire from life, ninety percent of people will reply, “I want to be happy.”  Asked to define happiness, the answers become more variable. One person’s trip to Italy is another person’s Harley. Someone actually took the time to figure this out.
