Winter Skin Tips

Winter has finally come to Tucson and our skin is feeling the dryness. As the humidity drops and the heaters come on, the moisture is pulled from our skin leaving us feeling tight, dry and itchy. Restore your skin’s moisture barrier with these easy tips:

  • Avoid long, hot showers or baths
  • Invest in a humidifier to increase the moisture in the air
  • Drink at least 50% of your body weight in water daily
  • Take Udo’s Oil Supplement daily for all your essential fatty acids
  • Dry brush the skin before every shower or bath. This is not only great for removing dead skin cells but it also aids in your body’s lymphatic drainage/detox.
  • Don’t over exfoliate the body skin. Use a gentle physical exfoliation on the body like
  • mikel kristi’s Bamboo Body Polish or a loofah a few times a week.
  • Never physically exfoliate your facial skin! The skin on our face is much too delicate and harsh physical exfoliation creates an ugly sandpapery texture. Use a gentle retinaldehyde product like mikel Kristi Vital A serum to support your skin’s natural exfoliation and cell turnover process.
  • Apply moisturizer as needed. Try mikel Kristi Fran’s Lemon Verbena body moisturizer. This luxuriously rich moisturizer not only smells great but restores the body’s moisture barrier. Apply generously to the body twice a day.
  • For facial moisturizer, my favorite is mikel Kristi Calendula. Calendula is a rich, anti- inflammatory, anti-aging moisturizer that’s perfect for adding moisture without feeling heavy or greasy on the face. Apply once or twice a day as needed.
  • Choose your skin care products carefully. Many companies use harsh chemicals and alcohols in their products which only make the skin worse. At mikel Kristi, we use all- natural, plant based ingredients that have been proven to nurture the skin.

Follow these basic steps and enjoy your supple, hydrated skin for the holiday season.

For many, summer time equates to travel and outdoor fun.  I don’t know about you, but I love quick weekend getaways. Especially for those of us in Tucson, we love to escape the scorching heat of the desert and enjoy some time by the water. I like to pack light and that means simplifying the skin care products that I take with me. 

So, what do you need for an easy and effective travel regimen?
Pack light and choose products that can multitask.

Travel is fun and exciting and there are so many wonderful places to visit in the world. Each place can offer incredible experiences and beautiful landscapes; but, how does your skin react to these environments? There are so many different climates and micro-climates that you may experience differences in your skin while traveling to different areas. Many may assume that they can skip certain skin care steps depending on the atmospheric conditions they encounter, but this is not the case.

We Love Peptides!

Why do we love peptides?
We love peptides because they reduce the appearance of fine lines and improve skin tone and texture.  And I don’t know about you, but the older I get the more I love and appreciate having smooth, radiant, and firm skin.  I like to refer to our 
Bio Peptide Revitalizing Serum as “photoshop” in a bottle.
