Life Is Busy

Life is Busy

For Moms, August can be an even busier than usual with the end of summer vacation and back to school preparations for the kids.  Add a career on top of that and you’ll see many Moms putting their self-care needs last. Rather than letting yourself go during these busy times, we want to help you simplify your life and your skincare routine so that you love what you see when you look in the mirror.

Here’s a comprehensive, yet quick and easy skincare routine.

M
orning:A quick and easy morning skincare routine is a great way to wake up and protect your skin for the busy day ahead.  

  1. Cleanse your skin with a non-drying cleanser.  I love the lemony scent of our Purifying Botanical Wash
  2. Next do double duty with our C Radiance Moisturizer that provides both antioxidant protection and all day hydration.  
  3. Protect and cover all at once by using a tinted SPF with zinc oxide. My favorite is Elta MD’s tinted sunscreen 
  4. Add a touch of mascara and lip gloss. Voila!  You're ready to conquer the day.

Evening:  Women often skip this step when life gets busy and they’re just too tired. I recommend doing this as soon as you get home in the evening, to help you relax for the night and wash away the impurities of the day.

  1. Cleanse your skin with a non-drying cleanser.  Again, I love the calming lemony scent of our Purifying Botanical Wash
  2. Blend together: Mikel Kristi Vital A Rejuvenating Serum, Bio Peptide Revitalizing Serum, and C Radiance Moisturizerand apply to your face, neck, and chest.  Because we use liposome encapsulation technology with our ingredients, all of our serums and moisturizers can be blended together without worrying about effectiveness. I like to call this “cocktailing.”  That’s it! Your skin is ready to revive itself as you sleep. You’ll love the vibrance and glow of healthy skin. 

Self Care

Use your skincare routine as your self-care time. Take a few minutes in the morning and evening, take a deep breath, and care for your tired skin with these self-care through skincare tips:

  • Be mindful and enjoy massaging your skin and facial muscles when cleansing or applying your serums. Squeeze the brows and the area between the brows. Let your jaw go slack and relax.
  • Create a mindfulness practice within your routine. When you cleanse, tell yourself you are washing away stress, concerns, and circular thoughts. When applying product, think of things you are grateful for or qualities you would like to increase in yourself.  
  • Inhale the scent of the essential oils in your Mikel Kristi products to refresh your senses and calm your mind. 
  • Give yourself some love: when your skin routine is complete, look in the mirror, smile and say “I love you” to yourself.

Ingredient Spotlight:  Prickly Pear Extract
Ingredient Spotlight: Prickly Pear Extract

by Bold Commerce Collaborator August 19, 2019 3 min read

Plant based skincare ingredients are nothing new. They’ve been used for centuries to care for our skin and bodies. Since plants cannot move away from danger, they adapt and  develop unique qualities to ensure their survival. Many of the most effective skincare ingredients come from plants that have evolved to survive in the harshest of environmental circumstances. The desert is one such unrelenting  climate, with its arid soil, low humidity, high UV radiation, and intense heat, cacti have become hearty, resilient plants. The Opuntia Ficus-Indica Cactus, or Prickly Pear Cactus, provides us with one of our newest Mikel Kristi ingredients, Opuntia Ficus-Indica (Prickly Pear) Stem Extract. Living in Tucson, we’re surrounded by these adaptive cacti and have seen first hand the resilience of these powerful plants. What better ingredients to use to care for our skin than one that can defend against a myriad of environmental stressors.

Aging is an interesting journey of trials, tribulations, and jubilations that bring with them growth and wisdom, along with wrinkles. What if you could age as you wish, and enjoy the sageness that comes with growing older, without all of fine lines and saggy skin? The secret here is to start when you’re young.  But don’t worry, if you are starting later in life there’s still hope.

The Myth Of Moisturizer
The Myth Of Moisturizer

by Bold Commerce Collaborator July 29, 2019 3 min read

There is no greater skincare myth than the old wives tale that somehow slathering on moisturizer will erase fine lines, wrinkles, and lack of tone.  Even worse, moisturizer is not really helpful in remedying dry skin. Often times big beauty brands are responsible for this misconception and add to the hype by consistently flooding the industry with “new and improved” gloop in a jar that has “limitless” anti aging and hydrating abilities… If only any of this were true! Many of us have  fallen prey to this type of advertising, and if you are among us, read on so you never need to buy into the myth behind the moisturizer cure all again.
