Holiday Skin: Glow All Season Long

The holidays are a time for joy and celebration. However, with all the festivities, you may notice some unwelcome skin changes. With the lack of rest and the common overindulgences that tend to come with holiday celebrations, your skin may experience more blemishes, dullness, and dehydration. 

 


Revitalize your skin’s health and radiance with this easy at-home facial:

  1. ApplyMikel Kristi’s Refreshing Botanical Wash to your face, neck and chest.  Leave on the skin for 10 minutes. If it starts to dry, give it a spritz of our Lavender Hibiscus Toner to rehydrate. Refreshing Botanical Wash is a gentle cleanser with lactic acid to encourage exfoliation, malic acid to cleanse pores,and the antioxidant tartaric acid to fight free radicals. The light minty feel is invigorating. 

  2. Rinse with cool water and pat dry with a towel.

  3. Apply a layer of our Balancing Mask to the face, neck and chest. Leave on for 10-20 minutes. Spritz with Lavender Hibiscus Toner, if rehydration needed.  Our Balancing Mask is a silky pampering mask loaded with activated charcoal and the extremely potent moisturizers Aloe Vera, hyaluronic acid, jojoba, and olive oils.Therefreshing scent of freshly brewed green and red tea will leave you feeling balanced and renewed. 

  4. Rinse with cool water and pat dry.

  5. Apply 1-2 pumps each of Bio Peptide Revitalizing Serum, followed by Vital A Rejuvenating Serum, and then C Radiance Moisturizer to your face, neck, and chest. Bio Peptide Serum, or as I like to call it “photoshop in a bottle,” is loaded with soothing peptides and redness reducers. Our Vital A Serumtreats your skin with a healthy dose of retinaldehyde and niacinamide to promote healthy skin renewal. Our C Radiance Moisturizer goes above and beyond with the added antioxidant and restoration benefits of liposome encapsulated vitamin C. 

Three pro tips to practice a little self-care with your skincare for added relaxation and rejuvenation:

  • Do your facial while taking a warm bath with Epsom salt and lavender essential oils.  
  • Take extra time to massage the muscles of the face with the application of your products. 
  • Take deep breaths and smell the lovely essential oils in our products to sooth your senses. 

Also, be extra diligent through the holidays to stick to a great daily skincare routine,  like the Mikel Kristi Core Collection, which will helpcombat the stresses of the season. Remember, dull and dehydrated skin happens because of a decreasein the skin’s natural exfoliation process. So, using our Vital A Rejuvenating Serum nightly will aid in exfoliation and increased natural hydration.Due to cold weather and artificial heat, this tends to bethetime of yearwhen you may need to add a little extra moisture to your skinas well. All of our products are loaded with hydrating ingredients like hyaluronic acid, sodium hyaluronate, and prickly pear extract. So, whether it’s a moisturizer or a serum, any of our products will providehydration foryour skin. 

Follow these tips and enjoy all your holiday celebrations with a beautiful, radiant glow.

5 Ways To Amp Up Your Beauty From The Inside Out

by Christy Hall March 24, 2020

We all know that beauty starts on the inside.  Let’s look at some ways to go beyond skin deep to get the results you desire. 

  1. Be kind to yourself:  Be conscious of your thoughts. Notice when you feel yourself going into a negative state. Because of our survival instincts, humans have a negativity bias built into our psyche. This was helpful back when we needed to remember not to eat a poisonous plant in the wild, or that a tiger lived in that particular cave. But in modern life it is used to ruminate on current dramas, past hurts, or future anxieties. See if you can notice when you go down your particular rabbit hole, and see if you can change your thoughts to kindness and gratitude. If not, just focus on the word STOP.

Skin Health & Well Aging Part 1: Skin Function

by Christy Hall March 09, 2020

Understanding how the skin functions as a whole will explain why some topical (on the skin) interventions work, and others don’t. The intent of any good skincare regimen should be on bringing the skin’s natural function back to optimum performance, much like it was back in your younger years. It is important NOT to just apply a topical “Band-Aid” on skin issues with moisturizers or organic oils. You need to get your skin back to a healthier state of functioning on all levels by feeding it the right nutrients.
