Skin Like A Teenager, With Acne

Women in their thirties and forties always wish they had skin like a dewy-eyed teen – all radiant and smooth with a porcelain clarity to it. But no one wishes they had skin like a teen with acne, and yet that is exactly what happens to some women as they reach menopause or pre-menopause. The same hormones that made teen faces break out in white heads, black heads and blotches are back again in full force making your emotions run amok and your skin erupt nightly. What can you do?

The most important thing to do is keep your hands away from your face. Just like when your Mom told you not to make it worse by scratching or picking. But there is another reason too, hands have oils and salt on them and you do not want to add to the skin issues on your face or spread any bacteria. So to start with, wash your face twice each day very gently. A light cleanser like our Rose Hip Seed Oil cleanser is gentle enough to use on skin with active breakouts but thorough enough to leave skin clean and pores unclogged. Use it twice a day, just after rising and just before bed and that will be a great start.

This wonderful cleanser delivers Vitamin C, Vitamin A, Omega 3, 6, and 9, along with beta-carotene and lycopene to ward off free radicals as it washes away surface grime.

Don’t stop there. Your next step is to use a retinol-based moisturizer to get the maximum amount of healing Vitamin A to your beautiful skin. Renew Youth works to promote healing and minimize skin damage so your skin looks better and breakouts heal more quickly. Putting a light layer on after cleansing can make makeup go on more smoothly and result in a more beautiful you with or without a little blemish.

You can try these products with confidence due to our amazing money-back guarantee and you won’t wait long because we ship everything quickly!

New Year, New You!

Are you ready to face the end of 2013? The ball drops in only four more days and those short days are the time we have to rethink how we have lived this year. How many simple regrets do you have? Are you sorry about money you spent? Sorry about things you shouldn’t have said? Or, are your regrets more along the lines of things you should have done. Perhaps you are thinking you should have exercised more or stuck to your diet, or volunteered at a local community art initiative. It doesn’t matter. Now we have a chance to start over and do 2014 right.

My first suggestion is taking better care of yourself. Nutrition is a key issue, as is getting off the couch and moving – exercise doesn’t have to be at a gym or doing 100 reps of anything. You just have to get moving.

If you are not sure what you should be doing for your face, try this. Our recommended beauty regimen. Look it over and see how close it is to what you are actually doing. The closer you are the better your skin will look and feel. And that’s important. It isn’t just about looks. It’s about getting hydration deep into the pores of your skin, encouraging the renewal of collagen, sloughing off dead skin and creating smooth new layers that have less uneven coloration, less lines and wrinkles, less rough patches. In other words, healthier skin all around. If you need more specific advice we have sections for oily skin, dry skin, and sensitive skin as well.

Make a resolution on December 31st that for 2014 you will treat your skin the best you can and see if by the end of January you don’t have skin that is just amazing! Make time for YOU in 2014 and don’t let anyone hold you back!

Merry Christmas – Take a Deep Breath!

Wow, the holiday shopping is finally over and most of the family together time has passed. You may still have a few lingering houseguests or need to travel home yourself, but for the most part the big event is over and done with. And as much as you love everyone, there is a good chance you’re feeling exhausted. Sometimes the only thing you need is a soak in a bath tub or a massage.

mango-body-creamWhile you are at it, we recommend using a luxuriating body butter after the bath, shower or massage to pamper your skin from head to toe. You don’t have to spend hours wrapped in seaweed if you don’t have the time, but at least take long enough to rub in some shea butter-enhanced body lotion to give your skin that all-over “ahhhhhh” feeling. The other reason I hope you will do it is that this has been a very cold winter (except in Florida) and many women are suffering from the drying effects of indoor heat. A good all-over moisturizing treatment will restore elasticity to skin and sink in for long-term therapeutic effects.

Our Mango Souffle Body Cream with shea butter contains mango and shea butters, emollient oils, hyaluronic acid for deep down hydration, and aloe vera for extra smoothness. To take it over the top we have added the anti-oxidant power of Vitamin E  to really soothe and smooth your skin. What haven’t we added: well, we have absolutely no sulfates, no parabens, no SLS, no formaldehyde, no alcohol and it is even gluten-free! Not convinced, how about our cruelty-free promise that this was not tested on animals and our money-back guarantee? This yummy body cream promotes healing and pampers your senses thoroughly so that you feel refreshed and renewed personally.

Try our Mango Souffle all-over body moisturizer. What a wonderful gift to give yourself this holiday season!

Beauty With A Clear Conscience

We are very excited to have received certification from PETA that our anti-aging skincare products were created without animal testing. If you have been a long term customer of ours you know we do not believe in animal testing. But we wanted to take the next step and get certified so you did not have to take our word for it.

petaYou see, we want everyone to have access to some of the top-grade therapeutic ingredients that promote youthful good looks and healthy skin. But we do not want that to be at the cost of anyone’s health and well-being. That was the philosophy behind the creation of Mango Madness Skincare, that we would never use dangerous ingredients that could harm our customers, and that we would not harm the rest of the earth, either. We avoid the use of a variety of chemicals commonly found in skin care like parabens, formaldehyde, SLS, triclosans, and more because they have been linked in studies to cancer or other health issues. It might be cheaper to use some of those chemicals in the creation of our anti-aging skincare line, but it would be bad for our customers. We also avoid using artificial fragrances because they can irritate sensitive skin, eyes, or even trigger allergy attacks in some clients.

Finally, the idea of having a skincare line that was not tested on animals was a decision we felt we had to make. No one likes the idea of animal-testing and we do not want that on our consciences.  This way, our customers pick up a jar of Mango Madness Skincare and they know they can trust what is behind that label. Just pure, anti-aging goodness. Nothing hiding in the formula but the ingredients that are most effective for your skin. That way you become even more beautiful, and we sleep great at night.
