Don’t Let Stress Get to You!

We all experience times of stress and frustration. Sometimes our stress is caused by trouble with friends or relatives, a problem at work, or worries about money. It doesn’t make you feel less stressed to read one more headline about how bad stress is for you. It can age you more quickly, cause you to lose sleep and look tired, and even trigger a heart attack.

So what can you do about it? Well, it turns out that you can do more than you would think. First, make some simple changes. Whether or not you are a morning person, get up an extra 15 minutes early and go outside and observe the sun coming up or listen to the birds singing. That’s all, just for a few moments stand there on your patio, front porch or balcony and breathe deeply. Believe it or not there is benefit to that in helping to reset your sleep cycle.

If you are working long hours, take an occasional five minute break and focus your eyes out a window or on a farther away visual point. Take a deep breath or two and then go back to work. This can help your mind stay out of a total rut.

If you can get some time for yourself, take ten minutes and close your eyes while you recline on your bed, a couch, in a chair. Listen to a meditation talk from YouTube or Audible and just practice breathing slowly. If you feel guilty taking ten minutes for yourself, add a layer of productivity by applying Nocturne Night Repair Cream to your face and telling anyone who asks that you are taking some “wellness time.”

Last, think about choices that might improve your outlook. Even if you are going through a rough time you might find yourself laughing at a funny movie or Ted Talk or YouTube video and every minute of laughter is a minute during which you are not anxious!


Dazzling Days of Summer

If you are from the Baby Boomer generation June 21st a/k/a the First Day of Summer may cause you to think of the Beach Boys singing Surfin’ USA. If you are younger you may have visions of Duran Duran on a sail boat singing Rio. Whatever your summer music and vision are, June is the month that it all seems to come together.

But when it comes to skin, June, July, and August are hard months that really take a toll on everything your skin holds dear. First, the sun just saps the moisture out of skin and if you have been reading this blog you know moisture is integral to skin beauty. But the heat causes evaporation and the UVA and UVB rays just directly sizzle the skin’s moisture away as the cells try to resist burning and drying. As the skin fires up its defenses and begins to tan and give up precious oils, moisture is depleted as a part of that process.

So, in the summer your skin maintenance is two fold. First, you have to protect your skin from the suns rays to begin with. A good sunblock is essential as are clothes that cover without over heating you. The next course of action is to replenish the moisture your skin has lost during a day in the sun. Mango Madness Skin Care has two good products for you.

The most important is Protect Me™ our UVA / UVB sunblock. Keep that sun away from the delicate skin on your face! Protect Me™ is paraben-free and will not irritate your skin.

Next, we have a great after-sun lotion to restore your skin’s natural moisture. Our delicious Mango Souffle Shea Butter Body Cream can be used all over after a shower or just as needed to soothe away roughness and dryness and make you feel pampered and oh, so silky!

Don’t settle for less – Mango Madness offers fast shipping, a great guarantee, and paraben-free wonderfulness in every product!

Out with the Old, in with the New

Did you know? Exfoliating encourages your skin to renew and regenerate. That’s right, doing something simple like exfoliating can help your skin grow more beautiful. Not just because you have scrubbed away the dull dry skin cells, but also because by doing that you have exposed the next layer of skin to the world and encouraged the production of more collagen and more skin cells.

And the good news is, you have many options open to you on how you exfoliate. Many people like the method that involves small abrasive particles. Our Oh Honey Amber and Honey scrub falls into that category. Many other people prefer our all organic Glycolic Acid gel which gently chemically peels away the dry, lifeless skin cells with a formula derived from pure, natural, organic sugar cane. It leaves your skin feeling fresh and delicious. It’s gentle enough to use regularly, and effective enough that we recommend it to our customers that have acne.

What can it do for you? It can:

  • help minimize age spots and produce a more even skin tone
  • reduce wrinkles by removing dry skin
  • build collagen
  • reduce acne so you feel more competent
  • assist makeup and sun screen to go on more evenly

Additionally, once you exfoliate your skin is better able to absorb and utilize the beneficial ingredients in eye cream, face cream, and moisturizers. You will find your make-up glides right on with no caking or clogging your pores.

If you have any doubts, visit our product page and read the customer reviews and the peer reviews. We are so sure you will like it that we offer a 90-day money-back satisfaction guarantee to encourage you to purchase. What are you waiting for?
