Thunder, Lightning, Snow and Skincare…

What does skincare have to do with the weather? The biggest thing that it has in common with sudden changes in the weather is that there are changes in what you need, and that you have to be prepared. Most women carry an umbrella, tissues, lipstick and hand lotion. But few carry  facial sun block or a light moisturizer in their purse.

Why is that? Sunscreen or sunblock is potentially the most important thing you could carry with you because the sun is the biggest threat to your complexion. Buy Protect Me™ Paraben-Free Sunscreen and keep it in your purse for times when your best friend wants you to go look at that amazing rose garden or dine outside at that new restaurant with the amazing courtyard. Suddenly you’re protected from the sun’s aging rays effectively with no odor or greasiness.

The other thing that would be a wonderful addition to your purse is a light moisturizer. We should not have to say this, but please don’t use your typical hand lotion on your face. Hand lotions are often chosen with less care than facial creams, and very often come with a strong fragrance. Fragrances can irritate the more delicate skin around your eyes, and most hand creams include parabens in the list of ingredients. Parabens are potentially a hazard because they have been implicated in women’s health issues and identified as a component that can promote skin aging. They are not something you want on your face.

So let the snow and end of summer storms come. You’ve got your umbrella, rain boots and a scraper for your windshield! And, hopefully we’ve convinced you to also carry a light moisturizer for times when your skin is dry, and a facial sunscreen to protect you from exposure.

Help for Uneven Skin

Many of us worry about wrinkles, frown lines, crows feet, laugh lines, and crepe-y chins. But for the person who struggles with uneven coloration, recurring blemishes, and pores that tend to be coarse and prone to blackheads, wrinkles are not always the priority. Evening out the skin so it looks smooth and makeup goes on easily and nothing is showing through, is much more important.

Well, fortunately, there is a moisturizer that also contains Retinol to help keep skin healthy with the potent power of Vitamin A. ReNew Youth™ Vitamin A cream fights wrinkles and thoroughly hydrates skin while delivering the highest concentration of Vitamin A available in a skin cream without a prescription.  This wonderful face cream brings antioxidants to your skin to help promote collagen production and hydration so that your skin looks and feels better. And, it’s so gentle it doesn’t irritate.

Our Mango Madness products contain no parabens, are not tested on animals, and have no SLS or formaldehydes. We also do not use artificial fragrances. That is why our face creams do not irritate or bother sensitive skin when applied. Use our Vitamin A facial cream right after cleaning makeup off your face in the evening and apply it every night. You will see a visible difference in a matter of weeks. You may have friends wondering why you look younger!

Try ReNew Youth today and give your skin the boost it’s been waiting for. You’ll be glad you did! And remember, Mango Madness Skin Care always ships free and fast in the continental United States and we have a money-back guarantee that protects your purchase price.

We’re glad you are a Mango Madness Skin Care customer! We work hard for you!

September is A Funny Month

It’s true, isn’t it? September is the time of the year when summer vacation is over and boats get put in dry dock or detailed and trailered into the shelter. Late summer storms gather on the East coast, tornados in the Midwest, and El Nino in the West. If you have children at home it is that hectic time for back to school madness. New sports uniforms, band equpment, bus schedules, paper, pens and clothes, clothes, clothes. It is a time of traditional change when sweaters go to the cleaners to be fluffed up for the Fall chill and bathing suits and sandals go on the shelf.

This also might be the time of year when you switch your facial routine as well. Many people use a lighter daytime moisturizer during the summer. (Like our deliciously silky Mango Miracle day cream.) Or change out their super moisturizing night serum for a night repair cream that can withstand the effects of central heating on your face at night. Nocturne is perfect for that.

Finally, it is a great time to do a thorough cleansing or micro dermabrasion and start fresh on your skin care so that your skin does not dry out over the winter months. Our special Micro Dermabrasion cream is the simple answer to an expensive spa exfoliation treatment. Exfoliating crystals gently but thoroughly remove the top rough layer of dead skin cells and open your pores so they can breathe at last. The moisturizing cream penetrates into the fresh layer of skin cells and protects and moisturizes. The result is absolutely beautiful and smooth skin and a fresh clean feeling as you enjoy this transitional month. The microdermabrasion will take care of minor imperfections and color unevenness and help with blemishes as it diminishes fine lines on your forehead and around your mouth. You will feel the results immediately and will notice that moisturizer goes on and sinks in while makeup looks smoother and more natural.

Treat yourself to this spa-at-home exfoliating experience as an end of summer treat. You deserve it!

I’ve Smoked, I’ve Lived in the Sun, What Now?

How can I undo years of poor lifestyle choices that have caused skin damage?

People ask this question all the time! And they are nervous about asking because they don’t want to get a lecture or get judged. We all understand that. We’ve all eaten the piece of cake we shouldn’t, dated the guy we were told is trouble, or spent the day in the sun when we should have been indoors.

A lot of lifestyle choices affect the way skin looks. How many of these factors are a part of your life or past life?

  • Drinking alcohol regularly or to excess
  • Spending too much time in the sun without sunscreen or adequate coverage
  • Using a tanning bed
  • Drinking an inadequate amount of water
  • Not eating a decent amount of fruits and vegetables.
  • Not getting enough sleep.

Is there any way to renew and promote healing in the skin cells that have been depleted or damaged? Fortunately, yes! There are two strong ingredients that are proven to help renew collagen, increase hydration, and minimize and/or diminish fine lines.

The first of those is Vitamin A. Also known as Retinol this wonderful vitamin is great at penetrating skin cells and delivering nourishment and fading age spots. That Retinol face cream acts as a moisturizer and a powerful face cream that helps smooth and provide anti-oxidants to troubled skin. Ready to try it? We’ve got some right here and it’s paraben-free!

The second weapon in your war against aging and skin damage is a good night repair cream. Our Nocturne Night Repair Cream is applied at night after you cleanse your face or exfoliate. Then, just before bed you apply the Night Repair Cream and leave it on over night. The rich moisturizing formula sinks into skin all night long and penetrating skin cells providing deep hydration to depleted skin cells hour after hour. Three powerful moisturizers work together to thoroughly promote healing deep within your skin. Jojoba, squalane and hyaluronic acid are formulated to synergize the moisturizing action bringing you powerful results you can really appreciate.

Do We Give Out Samples?

We get asked regularly if we give out samples. The simple answer is, “No,” but the correct answer is, “Pretty much.” And I know you are wondering how that could be true. I mean really, either we do or we don’t, right?

Nope. Not that simple. When most people think about samples they are thinking of tiny little tubes or travel sizes of something so you can try it affordably and see if it works. Do we have tiny little bottles, tubes, and jars? No, we don’t. And there’s a reason for that – actually two reasons. The first is that skin care is not a magic bullet. Renewing and replenishing moisture in damaged or wrinkled skin does not take one application of a special “fairy dust” product. Whoosh, years of sun damage, smoking and dehydration are gone. It just doesn’t work that way. What does work is using a quality product wth proven ingredients every day to rebuild collagen stores, help smooth away fine lines and fade discolorations. But that isn’t possible with a tiny sample so you would not get the benefit if we sent you one. The other reason is that creating miniatures of everything has an expense associated with it, too, so we would have to increase prices.

Instead we have created numerous guides to help you choose the right product and a 90-day cash back return policy. Yes, you heard that right, 90 days. Additionally, our shiipping to you is free lowering your cost even more. The advantage to this is that we are giving you plenty of time to try it and see if we match our product advertising. We encourage you to contact customer service with questions or concerns that might help your experience be better. That’s what we are here for.

But if the product is not working for you, then we are ready to take it back. Isn’t that even better than a teeny-weeny sample? You bet.

And why would you try Mango Madness Skin Care to begin with? Quality ingredients, no parabens, no SLS or triclosans, no animal testing, free shipping, a generous return policy, and great customer service. We’d love to have you as a customer. Click here if you are ready to shop!

Why Mix Ethics and Skin Care?

We have been asked many times why controversial presesrvatives like parabens are not in our skin care products. After all, the experts say, the studies are not conclusive and there’s no real proof that parabens cause cancer. Sure, they’ve been found in the cancer tumors but that might be a coincidence. And why through out phthalates and formaldehyde and sodium laureth sulfate? Those are all ingredients used in well accepted brands sold in department stores every single day.

But, they aren’t sold by us. We just can’t do that. Our customers are women who count on us to deliver effective and safe anti-aging products. Parabens in particular can actually accelerate aging. Why would we ever put something that ages your skin in an anti-wrinkle cream? And no, “every body is doing it,” is not a good reason.

We feel the same way about animal cruelty. Why should we offer products to women that are created by the suffering of animals? How could we sell our products knowing the backstory? We are not that type of a company.

So when people tell us we could do it cheaper, cut corners here or there, use fillers, throw in some chemical preservatives, we just don’t. Your health is worth more to us; our peace of mind is important to us. Mango Madness Skin Care is always going to stand for higher quality, fewer chemicals, no animal testing.

You get superior quality, we get a good night’s sleep!

Inside Your Skin

We all face aging of our skin, body and mind. But we have to let that aging win every battle. A lot of what we experience as aging is caused by environmental or lifestyle factors that are within our power to control. Even if many years have gone by since these factors began to work on our skin, we can promote healing and reversal by using the same mechanisms our skin healed with when we were younger.

An excellent example is hyaluronic acid. When we are infants our bodies are full of hyaluronic acid and our skin is amazingly soft, supple, and moist. As we mature, our body loses the ability to manufacture as much hyaluronic acid and, after age 40, we really have a lot less. This doesn’t just affect our skin tone, hyaluronic acid is responsible for keeping our joints moving smoothly, our eyes hydrated, and many other integral systems working the way they should.

In addition to being a moisturizer of unparalleled capability, able to hold 100x its own weight in water, hyaluronic acid also promotes collagen production. Collagen is absolutely critical to beautiful skin as it is responsible for holding the skin cells together in a flexible and supple layout without sagging and wrinkling. With sufficient hyaluronic acid and collagen, you have stunning skin. With too little you begin to develop fine lines, pouchy areas, discoloration and sagging. Finally deep wrinkles

You don’t have to be held hostage by the process of diminishing hyaluronic acid. Mango Madness Skin Care has developed a dual weight, pure hyaluronic acid serum that can renew skin elasticity while providing the deep hydration that keeps skin cells plump and healthy. This serum sinks into your skin penetrating through to the deeper cells and providing them with the building blocks to stay beautiful and fight the wrinkles that come with aging.

Try our amazing anti-wrinkle formula Hydrospherex™ and see what a difference restoring your body’s natural ability to heal can make. Remember we have a money-back guarantee and free shipping!

Summer Pro Tip: Keep Your Cool!

The summer days of July and August are hot and oppressive in nearly every state in the continental United States. Step outside around noon for ten minutes and you go through a series of experiences that can best be described as unpleassant.

  • Stepping from air conditioning in to the summer heat feels as if you are walking into an oven.
  • Your clothes and hair seem to wilt almost immediately.
  • As minutes tick by your hair clings to your skin and shaving your head bald begins to sound like a good idea.
  • After 8 or 9 minutes perspiration gathers on your upper lip, your under arms, and anywhere else that it can.
  • Your body feels heavy and all energy saps out of you.

What should you do to survive these two intense months with a good attitude. We asked a number of people for their summer survival skills and this is what they told us:

  1. Stay hydrated. Drink at least a third more water each day than you do in December.
  2. Change your eating habits. Heavy proteins and carbs make you feel full, bloated, and warmer. Choose fresh salads, chilled fruit, light sandwiches and cool soups like gazpacho.
  3. Change your socializing habits. Forget a middle-of-the-day picnic. Invite friends to kayak but plan your outing for the cool longer summer evening hours. You can still see what you’re doing and youo won’t huff and puff while doing it. Evening concerts, late night strolls indoor wine tastings are all good choices.
  4. Wear more, not less. Forget the strapless top you showed off in the spring. Wear long sleeved light weight cotton blouses and loose, drawstring cotton pants with sandals. Fabric should be gossamer thin but have good coverage to protect you from the sun.
  5. Turn the water temperature down and take two quick showers a day. Tepid water gets you just as clean but leaves you feeling more refreshed. Take a shower just before you dress in the morning and another right after you get home. Then moisturize your skin with Mango Body Souffle with Shea Butter.

You’ll make it through summer just fine if you remember these simple tips and you’ll feel wonderful in spite of it!

 

Banish the Signs of Stress

Many women ask us about products meant to slow or stop the power aging has over our body and face.  Some of their complaints are the lines from the nose to the mouth, the lines across the forehead and right above the bridge of the nose, dark circles under the eyes. Really, a significant component in the visible signs of aging is stress.

In a very real manner, stress affects how your body (including your skin) feels and looks. Stress is the system that wakes you up in the very early hours of the morning and won’t let you go back to sleep. Stress is what you see when you glance at a mirror and realize you are frowning. There are stress hormones that come in to play when you go through a difficult time with your family or on the job. In many women’s lives stress is a daily fact of life, something that is almost unavoidable. The good news is that it is not unstoppable. There are thing you can do to help your body relax even if you cannot stop the source of the stress.

Laugh – Yes, that old saying, “Laughter is the best medicine,” is actually true. What can you do to keep some laughter in your life? Subscribe to a cartoon or joke of the day so it shows up in your inbox along with work and gives your mood a tiny lift. Get an app with amusing videos or jokes on your smart phone and use it when you have unavoidable down time like waiting at the dentist’s office.

Meditate – Of course we know you’re short of time and busy, busy, busy. Take ten minutes at night when you are lying down to sleep and follow a meditation meant for calming relaxation. What can that really do? It can change your pre-sleep thoughts and mood so that you sleep longer and more fully.

Exercise – If you can join a gym or a walking group, do so. Follow through and keep going regularly, your heart will thank you for it. If you don’t have the time or energy, just make a point of walking a little more and getting up from a seated position more often.   Walk over to a window and look out. Walk down a hallway and back.

Lastly, we have two products we recommend if the stress in your life is starting to show in your face. The first is Peptide6® to fight fine lines and wrinkles with the body’s own methods. The second is RefreshMe™ under-eye cream for dark circles. Both can help you look less stressed as you work on finding ways to relax more.

Is Your Skin Ultra-Sensitive?

People come in all shapes, sizes, and sensitivities. Some people go camping and hike through the woods all weekend and come back with a healthy glow. Their best friend will come back with three distinct rashes, hives, and a sunburn on her forehead and shoulders. It’s normal to be anywhere at all on the spectrum. Additionally, if you have a skin condition such as rosacea, your skin may be even more prone to irritation.

So if you are the sensitive one you probably already know that so many things that are supposed to be good for you break you out. Here are just a few we can think of:

  • Many cleansers, especially those with SLS
  • Fragrances
  • Harsh chemicals like Acetone, Formaldehyde, Triclosans
  • Greasy formulas that block pores

Fortunately this is not the first time we’ve thought about this and we have a regimen just for you. First, our cleansers do not contain any of the above and they are also made without Parabens, phthalates, and animal testing. So try our mild Rose Hip Seed Oil cleanser. It is gentle enough to use daily, even if you have acne or rosacea!

For gentle exfoliating you will love our Oh, Honey!™  honey exfoliating scrub with amber beads. It lifts away dead skin cells without irritating the skin beneath!

For moisturizing and keeping your skin youthful and healthy, try our Peptide6® special formula anti-wrinkle cream and complete moisturizing facial cream. Peptide6 contains 6 active peptides to promote healing, renewal, and collagen production as well as hyaluronic acid for deep hydration. Your skin will love the effect and your friends will wonder what you are doing.

And, of course, don’t even think about going out in the sun without a full spectrum UVA and UVB sunblock like our ProtectMe™ non-talc sunscreen.

We’ve put all of our products for sensitive skin on a specially dedicated page to help you think about what you want to use and what other products might be useful. The page includes frequency of use and other info you may find helpful. We understand that you are sensitive, and we want to take the guesswork and trial and error out of taking care of your skin!
