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.

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!

Retinol – What Does it Really Do?

First let’s talk about where Retinol comes from.  Retinol is one of the forms of Vitamin A. It is found in butter and cream, liver, cod liver oil, and many other fats including those in your body. While it can be extracted from animal sources it can also be synthesized by starting with plant-based Vitamin A. Eating more liver and butter, carrots and mangoes would result in more Vitamin A in your body which would aid many organs including your eyes and your skin. Regular doses of fresh vegetables provide you with ample Vitamin A for nutritional purposes.

Since we know that, why can’t we just eat more vegetables and get better skin? We can in general. A healthy diet with plenty of water and fresh vegetables will result in better looking skin. But, in the case of skin that is aging, or suffering with acne, you may want to do something more specific to just the areas that need help.

So let’s look at topical applications of Retinol. Applying Retinol to your skin has been shown to have the following benefits:

  • Creation of more blood vessels in the skin, increasing healthy tissue and lessening pallor.
  • Promotion of collagen, increasing the suppleness of skin and renewing aging skin cells.
  • Suppressing acne and breakouts so that skin is smoother.
  • Lightening age spots.

All of these benefits make skin look smoother, more supple, more even in skin tone, and younger. We are not sure how much liver you would have to eat to achieve that but we bet you’d rather use our Retinol product, ReNew Youth.

Like all Mango Madness Skin Care products, ReNew Youth has no parabens, phthalates, SLS or formaldehyde. Free shipping, and a money-back guarantee make this an easy decision to make! You can buy ReNew Youth here!

The Good Old Days are Now!

Every once in a while I read some nostalgic piece about the “good old days” when things were simpler and more wholesome. But, on a closer look, that almost never turns out to be true. That is especially the case when you consider skin care.

vintageskinThere was a time when most women simply had no time or energy to worry about their skin. They toiled in garment factories, took care of their homes while their men were down in a mine, and less than 1% had the luxury to gaze into a mirror and worry about their skin. The advent of the industrial era and electric lighting changed all of that. Women began to have more time, and everyone could see each other more clearly. Suddenly, ads began to spring up for nostrums guaranteed to keep your skin light and creamy and smooth. To enhance the lighter color of skin women resorted to milk baths, arsenic, and cold creams comprised of fats and beeswax. Smart women of the day carried a parasol at all times. That, at least has not changed. Avoiding direct sun is always a good option!

Then came the “scientific” era and women smeared oily petroleum products onto their faces and creams containing Lanolin, derived from sheeps wool. The thinking behind both of those was that protecting the fact from dehydration was a good idea. And it was! Now we are in the twenty-first century and we know so much more.

We understand the building-blocks of skin. Science has unveiled how collagen works to keep skin supple and the role hyaluronic acid plays in retaining moisture in skin cells. We now know how peptides help in renewing and promoting regrowth of critical skin systems. We aren’t guessing any more and telling women, “here put this sheep oil on your face.” Sophisticated skin care companies are working directly with the skin itself to renew and enhance what nature was already doing.

Are you ready to take advantage of the best solutions this era has to offer? Get ready to enjoy your best skin and remember, every Mango Madness product is paraben-free, phthalate-free, cruelty-free and backed with an amazing money-back guarantee. Welcome to the best days we’ve ever had!

Why Fight Aging?

Society today seems to be of two minds: rush to get constant cosmetic procedures, or accept yourself as you are and look down on anyone who gets a peel or a lift. The trouble is, both of those directions are extreme. One thing society has always embraced is the look of youth. Neither of the extremes work to make you retain a youthful look. The other thing to consider is health. Looking youthful is one thing, but being healthy and retaining your youthful looks is much more desirable.

Esthetician-AdviceThat’s where recent science comes in. As medical science gets more and more knowledgeable about the aging process, we learn what we can do to stop the damage that happens to cells. And, as any article on skin damage can tell you, a lot of what we call “aging” is really the cumulative effects of lifestyle and environmental damage. Sun damage, smoking, harsh cleansers, chemicals such as parabens and formaldehyde, all play a part in how our skin cells breakdown. The result that we call “aging” would happen much more slowly and less dramatically if we could simply avoid all of those causes.

So how can we help our skin look and feel its most healthy without resorting to surgical methods or injecting artificial substances or toxins under our skin? It’s more simple than you might think. Several ingredients in medical grade skin care can help boost natural skin renewal and aid in collagen production and moisture retention. It is the drying and depletion of skin cell moisture that causes skin to loose suppleness and form wrinkles. When that process is reversed, skin is smoother, more elastic.

A good option for older skin is Peptide 6®. By utilizing six powerful peptides found in your skin naturally, new wrinkle formation is inhibited, and existing lines diminished. Collagen production is enhanced, and the hyaluronic acid in Peptide 6® is a potent moisturizer helping the skin stay hydrated the way young skin does. It’s really all about restoring health to your skin.

If you have not tried Peptide 6® this is your chance. Fast, free shipping and a money back guarantee make it easy. The results will soon make it your favorite face cream!

Purity Matters in Skin Care

Here at Mango Madness Skin Care we believe that consumers get more savvy every day. And we also believe that the more informed the customer is, the more likely she is to buy from us. Why is that? Because we put in the ingredients that matter, and we leave out the ingredients that might be harmful or just act as fillers. Lets look for one moment at our ingredients in our best hyaluronic acid moisturizer and a leading brand:

lab_beakerOurs: Squalane, Hyaluronic Acid, Xylitylglucoside,Anhydroxilitol, Xylitol, Other: Purified water, Polyacrilate 13, Polysorbate 20, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexyglycerine.

 

lab_beaker3Leading competitor: Water, Glycerin, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Ternifolia Seed Oil, Sodium Hyaluronate (Hyaluronic Acid), Calcium Ascorbate (Ester-C), Dimethicone, Organic Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), Retinyl Palmitate (Vitamin A), Allantoin, Panthenol, Xanthan Gum, Ammonium Acryloyldimethyltaurate/VP Copolymer, Cetyl Alcohol, Stearyl Alcohol, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin, natural oils.

The truth is, if you throw a ton of little ingredients into the beaker, you don’t have much room for the main ingredient. The jar is the same size so you can’t have the same amount of beneficial therapeutic hyaluronic acid if you are too busy fitting everything else into that same jar and selling it to the customer as a hyaluronic acid moisturizer. Consumers don’t fall for that anymore.

So we wanted you to see the facts. We can tell you how kissable and pretty your face is going to be thanks to the power of hyaluronic acid moisturizing, but we want you to know why ours is more effective. We aren’t hear to do any hocus pocus or double speak. If you aren’t sure about our products vs. some other brand, read the ingredients. We’re ready and proud of our formulas. Is the other brand? You decide.

The Building Blocks of Skin

If you follow the anti-aging beauty industry you hear a lot about hyaluronic acid injections, collagen injections, and even fat injections into lips, cheeks, and areas of the forehead that have lines. The effort that all these injections have in common is to make the skin look fuller so that it will not show wrinkles and lines. But how does the skin lose fullness to begin with, and is there a way to restore the skin’s natural fullness and suppleness?

To understand the needs of your skin, the first thing you must be introduced to is collagen. Collagen is one of the most abundant proteins in the human body and it is what connective tissue is made of. It holds together skin, ligaments, cartilage and more. Anywhere the body needs something to be flexible and smooth, you will find collagen. You will also find hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic Acid has a very specific role to play in the renewal of collagen and the body’s ability to retain moisture necessary for smooth functioning.

When we are young, the body has plenty of collagen and hyaluronic acid and knees work smoothly, faces look unlined and radiant. As time goes by, collagen stores are depleted and the body makes less collagen and hyaluronic acid. How can that be reversed. First, you can have collagen directly injected where you want it. There are several drawbacks to that method. We’ve all seen actresses with bloated, unnatural looking faces and heard the stories of unexpected infections or injections that migrate. There is also the bruising and pain, and worst, the treatment is temporary.

But there are ways of encouraging the body to create collagen. One is to use a hyaluronic acid moisturizer which both promotes collagen production and restores moisture. That’s using the skin’s own natural method. The other is to use a face cream that includes peptides. Peptides are amino acids that are necessary for certain chemical exchanges to take place in the human body. When you utilize these peptides on skin, they help the skin to renew itself just the way it did when it was younger. No bruising, no swelling, no unsightly misshapen results. Just skin, feeling and acting much more like itself 20 years ago.

So get the peptides and the hyaluronic acid building blocks working for you, helping your skin to work just the way nature intended it with Peptide 6® Wrinkle Cream.deep-wrinkle-reducer You’ll be glad you did!

Minimal Additives Means Maximum Effective Ingredients

facial_creamIf you’re a money-conscious consumer you know you don’t want your products watered down. Who would? And yet much of the skin-care industry does exactly that. They water down the products they sell to consumers with a variety of additives, fillers, fragrances, and preservatives until the active ingredients are the smallest part of the ingredient list. When you are buying a product for one particular ingredient and it is preceded on the label by about twenty other ingredients, you know there is very little of the ingredient you are looking for in there.

We don’t do that. We leave a lot of things out of our products. Some because we believe they are toxic or of medical concern, and some because we don’t feel they add to the effectiveness of the product. You buy our products because they work. You would not buy them anymore if we watered down the formula with a lot of extra mysterious ingredients. These are some of the things we do NOT put in our skin creams:

  • Parabens
  • Phthalates
  • Estrogen or xenoestrogens
  • Sulfates or SLS
  • Bisphenol A
  • Formaldehyde
  • Gluten
  • Alcohol
  • Soy
  • Petrochemicals or petroleum derivatives

We want you to be able to buy AND use with confidence. So when we tell you that you are getting six peptides, you are! When we tell you that you are getting Retinol and Hyaluronic Acid, that’s what you are getting. We feel that you will have more confidence in us if we are true to our advertising. We also think our results speak for themselves. Use our Maximum Moisture and feel for yourself how smooth and supple your skin feels. You will be thrilled with the difference in your face and we’ll be thrilled right along with you. We make these skin care products because we want to make a difference to your skin. So if you have not tried one of our wonderful anti-aging wrinkle creams, give one a try today!

The Opposite of Moist is Dry

Those of us who have dry skin know how very important a moisturizer is. We try to hydrate from within by drinking water and making sure we are on top of our nutritional needs, but it doesn’t seem to do as much good as it should. Then you throw in winter with its dry forced-air heating in most homes, and the skin dries out even more. What is a woman to do?

Well, dry skin does require extra effort and emphasis on specific products more than others. For one thing, you need to very gently exfoliate because dry skin cells turn into dead skin cells very quickly. Additionally, protecting that skin from the sun is critical, and moisturizing dry skin can seem to be a never ending battle.

We sell a lot of anti-aging, anti-wrinkle products and a fairly high percentage of our customers report that their skin is dry. So we have created a collection of products that we feel really help a woman with dry skin look her absolute best.

We have identified certain cleansers that do a good job of cleaning your face without drying it or stripping away the natural oils. We also have some exfoliators that will remove the dead skin cells, as well as a good line of moisturizers that go on smoothly and then penetrate deeply for maximum hydration of the layers of your skin cells. If you follow those recommendations, you will have a complexion that your friends will envy. Dry skin won’t win over your new beauty regimen; you’ll be delighted with the results before the first jar is completely gone.

Trust Mango Madness Skin Care to give you the right advice when it comes to taking good care of your skin. This is a business we have devoted all of our skills and knowledge to and we’ve done it so that you will get the optimal benefits for your pretty face. Read how to care for dry skin here.

Spring Forward

We are not quite there yet but I am already dreaming of Spring. I can’t wait to wear light dresses, sandals, and shed all of these heavy clothes that I’ve been burdened with throughout the Winter months. I know we are not quite to Spring yet but that doesn’t mean I can’t look ahead!

The first plan I have for Spring is to do a thorough exfoliation of my skin, and for that I have a number of choices. I could go to a medical spa for a serious peel but that makes me nervous. I’d rather use a gentler product and not risk damaging my skin. Right now my choices are:

Oh Honey, Amber Facial Scrub – This one really appeals to me. I love the little amber exfoliating crystals and the honey and vanilla cleansing and moisturizing scrub just makes it all seem so luxurious and enjoyable. The jar is good for about 40 exfoliation treatments so it is a great buy as well!

Or, I could use Exfoliate Me™ Glycolic Facial Cleanser, a preparation that uses glycolic acid to gently remove dead skin cells and promote and encourage growth of new cells. You can use it occasionally, or even every day as part of your regimen. It works on all skin types and is a superior product if you are dealing with discolorations and unevenness in skin color, or blemishes from acne.

My favorite to work on my skin after a long winter has always been the Microdermabrasion Exfoliating Cream. Gently abrasive crystals go to work scrubbing your skin, while the moisturizing effects of Shea Butter, Vitamin E, Grapeseed Extract and Jojoba Oil smooth away any imperfections or fine wrinkles. What a feeling! Afterwards, my skin feels as if I’ve had a spa treatment and makeup just glides on!

Whichever one you choose, make sure it is paraben-free, cruelty-free, and contains no artificial fragrances or formaldehyde products. Treat your skin with love and you’ll look radiant!
