PRICES HAVE GONE UP, READ ON TO SEE WHY

I would like to start out by saying how very grateful I am for all the support you have shown us as we launch our fully re-branded line, Botnia. We have been working for years now to bring you simple skincare that truly loves your skin, and it means the world to us to have so much positive feedback from all of you who have been with us since the beginning.
Now that we have had the privilege to share that hard work with you, I wanted to be sure to take a moment to explain to you why we have revised the prices for the new Botnia product line.
As we continue to move forward, I have been carefully refining our mission as a responsible company. We are in the process of taking full control of our product line from whole plant to finished product in order to bring you skincare we wholeheartedly stand behind. Some ingredients we carefully source; some, we craft ourselves in our lab in Sausalito. Our focus is on buying locally, ensuring fair wages and working conditions for farmers, minimizing environmental impacts, and making as much as possible and growing as much as possible in our own gardens.
We are also working on sole-sourcing all of our raw botanicals. By purchasing each ingredient from a single farm or a single producer we are able to build the relationships that guarantee that our products are of the absolute highest quality. Furthermore, all of our new packaging is manufactured here in the United States from start to finish. To put it simply, these efforts mean that our ingredients are more expensive, but we know we can trust the products we are putting into your hands.
We have also turned an eye to the future and have hired Clayton Coker full-time to hand craft each product. Clayton has been a research Scientist for the last 8 years and is engaged in the further development of simple and potent products to care for your skin and protect its natural beauty.
We believe that our line of skincare is the very best. The new Botnia line may be more expensive than the Skin Remedy line of products, but they are a reflection of the costs associated with bringing you ethical, handmade, organic skincare of the absolute highest quality.

Skin Remedy of the Week

How to master that “dewy glow” look with some of our favorite products.
Just because it’s winter doesn’t mean you can’t sport that beautiful fresh summer glow all winter long.
Here’s how to make it happen with some of our favorite products..
First off, it is so important to keep the skin hydrated. 80% of people have dehydrated skin, so there’s a good chance that’s YOU. Our favorite product to deliver hydration to the skin is Skin Remedy’s very own Hydrating Serum made by our founder. This serum is a base of hyaluronic acid which delivers a huge drink of water to the skin while the juniper and cucumber extract calm and soothe.
Lastly, Moisture, moisture, moisture… Our skin can’t glow when it lacks moisture. The best time to replenish the skin is the nighttime when your skin is repairing and rebuilding. We absolutely love our treatment oil. Put this on at night after your hydrating serum and wake up to a beautiful soft complexion.
Also, a little highlight in the face does wonders to “glow” up a complexion. Try RMS Beauty’s “living luminizer”, apply it to the cheek bones and underneath the brow for a little “pick me up”.
Come by and see us at Skin Remedy and we can mix you up your own regimen to keep your skin glowing all season long!

Skin Remedy Insights

Happy Friday Skin Remedy Fans!
As we all transition into our weekend, we’d like to share some skincare wisdom and tips for those in their twenties, by our very own Katie Woods!
“I am in my late 20’s now. Luckily, I became interested in skincare at a young age, which drove me into my career as an esthetician. Throughout the years, I’ve researched and experimented with many different products, regimens and most importantly, Ingredients! In your twenties, it’s all about creating and maintaining great habits to shift you into your thirties with a fresh, healthy glow! Bring it on 30’s!
As much as I would love to write a book here on “everything skincare”, I am instead, going to focus on a few tips that I find particularly important.
-Stop over stripping your skin! You’re a big girl now, Please get rid of that Neutrogena and bar soap! Many of these cleansers and soaps with low grade ingredients can be very stripping to the skin. You may feel “squeaky clean” but in reality, your skin is stripped and left vulnerable until its proper Ph is restored. Don’t strip the life out of your skin, find a great skincare therapist to guide you in investing in a gentle high quality cleanser.
-Exfoliate! If you don’t properly exfoliate, then that amazing hydrating serum, or night cream won’t work to its fullest potential. This is because dead skin acts as a barrier over the surface, hindering your products efficacy. I’m a big fan of AHA’s in gently speeding up cell renewel! And of course, as an added bonus, exfoliating makes you glow!
-Embrace Oil and Moisturizers! For the longest time, in both diet and skincare, we became obsessed with avoiding oil. We now know, that the right kinds of oils are essential for our body, both internally and externally. I can’t tell you how many people tell me that they cleanse and don’t moisturize. Please don’t do this, it’s important to create a healthy balance and find the RIGHT oils for your particular skin. (Ex. using squalene oil over avocado oil enables the oil to penetrate and nourish the skin verses causing a thick greasy film over the surface)
-Find a great sunscreen! Your early 20’s is a great time to find a high quality SPF that you love! I recommend and use Suntegrity which is zinc oxide based, is lightweight and has a very light coverage.
-Consistency is KEY! I think of skincare as exercise. It’s better to work your body out consistently for 20 minutes daily then to workout weekly for 2 hours. Similarly, it’s better to utilize a gentle AHA toner on a daily basis then just going to an esthetician for an intense “peel” every few months. If you find the right regimen and are consistent then I promise, you’ll see the results!
-Lighten and Brighten in those “dull” months! The best time to repair skin damage and “lighten” and “brighten” the skin is during those months where we see less sunshine and spend less time outdoors. This is because products that are meant to rejuvenate and stimulate cell renewal are usually those which also make our skin photosensitive (UV sensitive). So, focus on repairing and evening out skin tone in those fall and winter months!
Book an appointment @ Skin Remedy to get a customized skincare regimen and personal skincare advice- It’s our specialty! These are a few of the tips I’ve accumulated over the many years of being an esthetician. Keeping your skin beautiful is about consistency and experimentation!
“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.” -Aristotle
Happy Weekend To All!

Skin Remedy Insights

Hi Skin Remedy Enthusiasts!
Catch up on some very interesting skin care insights on staying youthful in your forties from our very own Julie Osborn!
“I am in my mid forties now and my skin really has changed throughout the past couple of decades. No longer can I ride my youthful resilience and rely on basic maintenance to keep my skin looking healthy, I am now employed in the battle against time to hinder the aging process. I am sure many of you can relate!
There are many things you can do to help your skin appear more supple, smoother and youthful. Here are a few things I like to do to stay on top of it.
In your forties, skin dryness and excessive dehydration comes with the territory. This is because your dying skin cells are not replaced as quickly as when you were younger, and as a result can make your skin appear older and have a dull, uneven texture. Nobody wants that! For me, the answer lies not only in drinking plenty of water, but also adding a moisturizing serum underneath my daily/nightly moisturizer. My favorite is Skin Remedy’s own Hydrating Serum with hyaluronic acid. The hyaluronic acid is a humectant which bonds moisture to the skin. After cleansing I massage a couple of pumps of this product into my skin and immediately see a fresher, plumper, dewier complexion. It feels beyond great and I look visibly younger!
Melasma, sun spots and freckles are the most common types of skin discoloration/hypepigmentation in your forties. They start coming on fast and seemingly out of nowhere. They are an accumulation of damage done to your skin over time from sun, the environment, and hormonal imbalances. A daily dose of topical vitamin A, or retinol, can help tremendously because it helps to slough away dead skin cells and reveal new growth underneath. For that reason it is also great for reducing fine lines and wrinkles. I personally started using Skin Remedy’s Retinol moisturizer every night and have noticed an evenness in my skin that I haven’t seen in years. What’s more is that retinol also helps control adult acne. A super, multi-faceted product!
I have never gotten so many compliments on my skin as I have in my forties and not only do I totally believe it, I can absolutely see it! A routine of facials and using the right products for my aging skin every single day has proven to be the key to my skin care success and the secret to keeping my skin looking youthful and glowing!”

Skin Remedy Tips

Hello, Beauties!
Tarren here, and I have some skin care tips for you. These are some favorites that have made a world of difference for both myself and my clients…
-Toners. Toners could possibly be the most underrated of skin products. A good toner will balance out the PH of your skin and give you an extra cleanse. And of course my personal favorite is SR’s own Neroli Toner. Love this stuff!
-AHAs & BHAs are king and queen when it comes to exfoliating. Acids exfoliate the skin in a deeper way that a physical exfoliant, like a washcloth or scrub, cannot. Depending on your skin, physical exfoliants can also spread bacteria and further aggravate inflammation. Yuck!
-Having a mysterious break out? Paying attention to food triggers, such as sugar, gluten and dairy, can teach you what does not work for your skin. Try cutting one of these out for a solid week and see if it makes a difference. It’s less daunting than one would think, and if you have some sort of intolerance it will totally be worth any sort of inconvenience.

SR New Creation
Skin Remedy is busy creating new progressive products all the time! This past Sunday in the lab, we’ve created one that we are especially excited about! By denaturing peach, we were able to extract the natural sulphur then added 5% glycolic acid and soothing botanicals to balance the potion. Peaches are extremely high in sulphur, making the peel anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-septic. This is great for both aging skin as well as acneic skin. You can experience this in the “Skin Remedy” facial and we may even be offering take home bottles of this lovely potion. Stay tuned! Skin Remedy SF

Antioxidant’s for the Skin

Everyone has seen how fast an apple turns brown when peeled or perhaps the other half of the avocado you saved for lunch turned brown and its not its voluptuous green color anymore….this is called oxidation. Everyday we are exposed to damaging UV radiation and free radicals in the air we breathe, which oxidizes our healthy cell tissues in our bodies as well as our skin. Antioxidants are nutrient rich in vitamins, minerals and enzymes that have the power to fight off damaging environmental stressors to prevent our skin from oxidizing. This is why it is beneficial to consume antioxidants into our diet as well as our skin care to prevent from premature aging. Here at Skin Remedy we offer customizable in house treatment masks that are packed with antioxidant rich ingredients. We hope to see you soon for your next treatment!

Get Your Skin and Body Beach Ready with Dry Brushing

It’s that season again… Summer is upon us! Sunshine, BBQ’s, Music Festivals, The BEACH… Good times! Is your skin and body ready to “Bare It”?! Read on to see how you can assist in smoothing, evening tone and resurfacing that lumpy surface! And, if you’re one of those lucky ladies without cellulite then consider yourself extremely lucky- You’re ONE of the 10%!

What is cellulite anyway? Other then the bain of bikini season, cellulite is a condition in which the skin has areas with underlying fat deposits, giving it a dimpled lumpy appearance. It is most common on thighs, buns, hips and belly. Although cellulite will probably never fully disappear, there are ways to improve its appearance. Here are some tips…. Eat well and exercise (duh!), Hydrate constantly, get regular massage, body scrubs and wraps.

Skin Remedy has an amazing body wrap called the Detox Remedy. This specific wrap uses high heat and detoxifying, antioxidant rich potions to assist in blood and lymph circulation, which in turn, improves the health and function of the entire body. Best of all, it can assist in weight loss and improve the appearance of that pesky cellulite. A great at home tip to use daily is dry brushing and what you do daily can have biggest impact on overall health and beauty. Dry brushing helps your lymph system get rid of toxins which in turn can assist in smoothing cellulite. Lymph is a fluid that collects toxins from cells and moves the toxins to areas where they can be eliminated. Dry brushing paired with our Detox Remedy Wrap will be sure to get your body Beach Ready!

Here’s what you do!

Use a natural bristle brush.
Start on dry skin before bathing.
Start at the feet/ankles and brush in long circular movements up toward the heart.
Always brush to the center of the body.
On stomach and armpits use a circular clockwise brushing motion.
Brush softly at first and eventually work up to firmer pressure.
After dry brushing, shower (cool water or alternating cool and hot is best)
Moisturize after showering- we use Skin Remedy’s Signature Body Butter or Body Lotion.
Repeat daily or as needed.

Skin Remedy of the Week

Bee Pollen has so many benefits, it’s hard to focus on just one! Pollen is the food that bees collect from flowers and bring back to the hive. When collected ethically, this magical pollen can be consumed by us! Bee pollen is full of all sorts of essential proteins, lipids, vitamins, minerals, anti-oxidants and fatty acids. Just a spoonful of bee pollen a day can prevent allergies, maintain healthy skin, prevent illness and increase energy.
So how would bee pollen help to remedy the skin?
-Free Radicals break down the skin’s natural function to keep itself healthy. These free radicals come from environmental elements-stress, pollution, etc, which cause premature aging. Bee pollen is full of antioxidants, which fight the effects of these free radicals and protect from further damage.
-More specifically, pollen contains Rutin, a bioflavonoid anti-oxidant, which supports the cardiovascular system and helps build strong capillary walls, preventing broken capillaries and creating a more even skin tone
-Nucleic acids are what make up our RNA and DNA, and bee pollen is full of it! This means maintaining healthy cells which will continue healthy cell turnover and leaving you with fresh, beautiful skin.
-The antibiotic effects of bee pollen come from the acids it possesses and reduce inflammation, which is wonderful for all sorts of skin conditions, including acne and rosacea.
-Pollen contains many enzymes, which help aid in digestion. When your digestive system is working, your body can more easily absorb all the nutrients you take in-resulting in healthy body and of course…healthy skin!

*To start, and avoid allergic reaction, take a little bit-one or two granules and build up to a tablespoon over the course of a week. It can be blended into a smoothie, your cereal, or by itself-whichever way you choose you are sure to notice a difference in your overall energy, and soon enough your skin!

Dearest Clients,
As many of you know by now my husband Christopher and I are expecting our first baby at the end of April. We could not be more excited about this wonderful addition to our family, but with it comes some changes for Skin Remedy.
I will be taking a few months off to spend with our new baby girl and will be back in the summer with limited hours. I have loved being able to nurture all of my clients through our personal relationships as well as with the Skin Remedy product line. I wish I could be wonder women and be at two places as once, but at this crucial time in my life I need to be at home with our new addition.
I have spent the last three years training Katie Woods and she is nothing short of a master Esthetician. Her touch and knowledge base is something to be experienced! Katie has the highest level of training with a cidesco certification. She will be stepping into my shoes as I take maternity leave as the head honcho and has been paying close attention to my direction around each one of you and your needs.
I have also recently hired Tarren Brooks, Tarren came to Skin Remedy with years of experience in the beauty industry and has gone through our rigorous training and is now taking clients. Tarren a gives the same amount of consideration to each client as Katie and myself and has studied with the Nova studio, the same training I did to learn about raw natural ingredient’s and organic skin care. She is well versed in all of our treatments and is a total doll! I feel so lucky to be able to bring you the best this industry has to offer with talented Estheticians such as Katie and Tarren!
I will also continue to bring you the Skin Remedy product line with help from our resident scientist Clayton Toon. I will miss all of you dearly as I depart from our routine visits, and thank you all for your continued support as I move into motherhood. I wish I knew exactly how long I will need to be home caring for our new baby. One thing I do know is, I love being a Esthetician, love all of you and will be back in action in no time! Please see below for all the upcoming changes.

Skin Remedy of the Week
*Why Sugar’s The New Wax*
Hard wax, Soft Wax, Honey Wax, Cream Wax, SUGAR!? What the heck is Sugar!? Sugar hair removal is my personal favorite for those particularly sensitive areas of the body. In comparison to wax, there are so many reasons why this form of hair removal is quickly gaining popularity. Here are a few.. Sugar paste is simply made from sugar, water and lemon and is a paste verses a wax. This paste is gently worked into the hair, against the growth, then pulled out in the same direction as the follicle with no sticks or strips necessary. Sugar pulls on the hair, not the skin, resulting in less irritation and inflammation making it wonderful for those with super sensitive skin. Not only is there less sensitivity involved, many clients also experience longer lasting results, less ingrown hairs and overtime many enjoy a permanent lack of hair growth. One of my favorite features of sugar is that it’s fully compostable, making it a service with zero waste. So, what are you waiting for!? Give us a call and try sugaring today, Mother Earth thanks you!

Skin Remedy of the Week

Clogged Pores = Wasted Product

Clean pores are key to healthy skin. Extractions are an important step to any thorough facial and at home skincare regimen. Exfoliating the excess oil, dirt and dead skin buildup enables ingredients to properly penetrate the skin instead of it acting as a barrier. This makes products much more beneficial and effective. Plus, regular cleansing and exfoliation are important in removing pollution and prevents acne bacteria buildup. Book a facial today at Skin Remedy and we can customize a skincare regimen just for you!

Skin Remedy of the week

“Take a few minutes to relax and simultaneously improve your skin with a botanical facial steam! Steam by itself opens up the pores and gives a deep cleanse. Deep breaths of steam can also clear congestion in the sinuses and lungs as well as calm the nervous system. Adding dried herbs to the steam will have even more great benefits for your skin, as well as aromatherapy!

To start, you will get your herbs ready. You want about one cup total of dried herbs:

1/4 licorice root (soothing, deep cleansing)
1/4 calendula (regenerative, anti-bacterial)
1/4 chamomile (anti-inflammatory, soothing)
1/4 rose hip (hydrating, toning)

-Bring 2-3 quarts of water to a boil, add herbs. Simmer for five minutes while you go wash your face
-Remove pot from heat, land make sure it is on a stable surface
-Drop a towel over your head and the pot, keeping your face at least 10 inches away from the water at all times
-Close your eyes, take some deep breaths and relax
-Steam for no longer than 7 minutes!
-When finished, rinse your face with warm water

*You don’t have to follow this recipe exactly, add or remove herbs freely-marshmallow root and elderflower help to hydrate dry skin, while rosemary and sage clarify oily skin.”

-Tarren Brooks

“An apple a day keeps the doctor away”

The adage, “an apple a day keeps the doctor away,” has been found to be more than true. In fact, it has been proven to be both one of nature’s best antioxidants and a friend to anyone who wants healthy hair and skin. Rich in Vitamin A, B, and C it’s skin and hair’s super food right at your fingertips.

Apples, green in particular, are great for toning and reviving tired, stressed skin. Their natural antioxidants work to fight off the free radical damage we’re exposed to every day and are especially healing if you’ve had just a little too much sun! Add wheat germ to the mix and you’ve got a ten minute mask that will give you some exfoliation and leave your skin supple and glowing.

Here’s how we do it at home:
Grate or puree an apple of your choosing so that you have a tablespoon worth of apple. In a small bowl mix with a tablespoon of wheat germ (or as much as you need to get the consistency of a paste). Apply this to a freshly washed face and leave on for ten minutes. Enjoy!
For additional variations try mixing apple with honey to a paste-like consistency and leave on for ten minutes for some extra nutrient-rich hydration. And as always, make sure you follow up with your favorite moisturizer after your at home treatment.

Skin Remedy Of The Week:
antioxidant rich calming and soothing mask

Did you all have a great time at Outside Lands Music Festival this weekend?! Is your skin showing it!? If so, here’s a great antioxidant rich calming and soothing mask to get that glow back and help to deliver the nourishment that was lost over the weekend.

You’ll Need:
1 tablespoon of beet juice
1 tablespoon of ground colloidal oatmeal.
1 teaspoon of honey.

Mix all ingredients together to form a paste similar to the consistency of pancake batter. After fully cleansing the skin apply this mask just before hopping in the shower. Leave on for the remainder of your shower so the steam assists in penetrating the active ingredient further into the skin. Tone and moisturizer as usual.

Beet juice is a very powerful antioxidant that reverses sun damage and gives your skin a deep exfoliation. Colloidal oatmeal helps to calm, soothe and heal damaged skin while the honey acts as a humectant, and has powerful antibacterial ingredients.

Voila! Ready for Monday!
Enjoy.

Skin Remedy of the Week:
Hyaluronic Serum

Hyaluronic is a timeless classic in the world of skincare. Known to be the most powerful humectant every skin type can benefit greatly from this ingredient. Skin health relies heavily on maintaining a proper amount of moisture – and this can be tricky when we’re battling the sun, the environment, and our own specific skin conditions. In order to stay youthful and healthy our skin must have enough moisture.
So what makes the Hyaluronic Serum the right choice? The answer is in the name – Hyaluronic holds 1,000 times its weight in water and will seal in the moisture your skin already has. It plumps out fine lines and provides a deeper level of hydration than over the counter moisturizers. Our Hyaluronic serum feels light and won’t leave you with a greasy finish.
Skin Remedy recommends use in the morning and at night underneath your daily moisturizer for an extra kick of hydration!

Ice: The Perfect Spot Treatment

Ice: The Perfect Spot Treatment

Got a big whopper of a pimple you’d like to get rid of? Ice it! A pimple that has become increasingly red and inflamed is the body’s immune response to fighting the build-up of bacteria within a clogged follicle. By applying ice to the area a signal will be sent to the body to calm down and pull back it’s army of white blood cells while constricting blood vessels to help reduce redness and inflammation. Just by icing for 5 minutes every day the size of the pustule should decrease day-by-day without causing the flakiness and dryness OTC spot treatments tend to do. Of course, we still want to keep the area clean, so before icing make sure the area is freshly washed and put a dab of an antiseptic on the little guy to neutralize bacteria.

Skin Remedy Of The Week:
Sunforgettable SPF 50

Happy Fourth! Summer holidays are a great time to get outside and celebrate! Skin Remedy would like to remind everyone to have fun and protect your skin while you’re outside. Our advice? Wear an SPF 50 or higher and re-apply every 80 minutes.

Colorescience “Sunforgettable” SPF 50 is an easy way to make sure your skin stays protected while you’re on the go and doesn’t have any of the greasy finish that comes with liquid sunscreens.
This water-resistant powder sunscreen contains Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide providing powerful UVA and UVB protection and Red Seaweed Extract Minerals for additional skin nourishment. Sunforgettable comes in three different shades and has a self-dispensing brush to allow an easy application on the go. This SPF can be applied over your makeup or on a fresh face and will give your skin a sheer, mineral finish.
Always remember, your SPF is effective for 80 minutes so a re-application throughout the day is vital to healthy skin.

Skin Remedy of the Week:
Vegetable Glycerin Cleanser

Our Skin Remedy Glycerin Wash is a non-foaming cleanser that gently and safely removes the excess dirt and oils from our faces. Unlike our other cleansers the Glycerin Wash feels similar to an oil-based cleanser but will not clog the pores. The benefits of a using a cleanser with this consistency is that oil attracts and binds to oil. This wash will be especially beneficial for removing makeup and excess oil without stripping and over-drying the skin.
The Glycerin Wash still provides the anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, and anti-fungal properties that every good cleanser should. It contains Vegetable Glycerin, Witchhazel, Arnica Extract, Hyaluronic and Salicylic Acid which provide powerful hydrating properties in addition to their focus on ridding the skin of bacteria, fungus, and inflammation.

After Workout Breakouts Be Gone!

“After Workout Breakouts Be Gone!”

Here comes the lovely warm weather! The time of year where we break out the tank-tops and skirts. Also, it’s a time where we tend to up our game at the gym, working hard to tone and feel lighter and healthier.

Often times, I get clients who complain of more consistent breakouts when they intensify their workout routine. More often then not, this is due to the fact that they’re not washing their face immediately following their workout. The best thing you can do is always wear clean workout clothes, and immediately remove them, hop in the shower and cleanse your entire face an body. However, sometimes our hectic schedules get in the way and we can’t shower immediately.

Here’s a great QUICK and easy anti-bacterial toner that you can bring with you to class or the gym when you’re unable to hit the showers immediately! This will assist in killing bacteria on the surface of the skin that causes those pesky breakouts!

You will need:
-A small sterile spray bottle
-Witch hazel
-Apple cider vinegar
-Essential oil (lavender, tea tree and lemon all all great)

Recipe:
-2 cups witch hazel
-1/4 cup of braggs apple cider vinegar
-15 drops essential oil

Mix together and shake before use! Use this before your workout to help remove makeup then again after when you can’t fully wash!

No excuses now! Happy exercising!

The Benefits of Oil

1

The Benefits of Oil and why ALL skin types Need It

From oily, to dry, to combination skin, ALL skin needs oil. Before you forego oils entirely as part of a healthy skincare regimen, read on!

Oils have some wonderful benefits, and it’s truly about finding the RIGHT oil for your particular skin type. They’re rich in healthy skin essentials such as moisturizing fatty acids, including omega-3, -6 and -9, which strengthen the skin’s lipid layer and help stabilize natural oil production, which means even if your skin is already oil rich, oil still breaks down oil- balancing even oily skin types.

Many oils contain powerful antioxidants, anti-inflammatories, and deep healing, moisturizing properties making it an extremely useful anti-aging potion.

At Skin Remedy, our lab is stocked with beautiful powerful oils to customize any facial treatment and even better, any at home skincare regimen! With the fall/winter season vastly approaching we suggest incorporating a oil into your nighttime skincare regimen which will boost your skins lipid barrier creating a strong, protective canvas to fight off any rugged winter weather!

If you’d like to learn more about your particular skin type and what oils are best for you then come see us! We love what we do and are here to help!

*Ask about our amazing Skin Remedy Treatment Oil, cold pressed and created with love by owner Justine Kahn. It’s even grown from her garden in Sausalito! Composed of Rosehip, Lavender, Geranium, Lemon, Verbena, and Chamomile. It smells divine and will keep your skin glowing and supple through the season.

“Fall” Into A Weather Proof Skincare Regimen.

4

As days grow shorter, temperatures drop and air becomes drier, your skin may lose much needed moisture.

Fall is a time of transition and with it comes perfect timing to adjust your skincare regimen. Focus on creating a routine to address any summer damage that has occurred and prep your skin for winter! Being the season with the least sunshine also makes it an ideal time to address any hyper pigmentation, or uneven skin tone.

Daily skincare regimen adjustments should be based on your specific skin type and condition. Come in for a complimentary consultation with one of Skin Remedy’s estheticians to find your perfect winter regimen. Let us assist you in keeping your skin bright and glowing through the winter season!

*The best part of the Skin Remedy line is we can make minor tweaks and adjustments by simply adding or taking away key ingredients to grow with your skins needs*

In the meantime, here are some tips for a seasonal regimen adjustment..

– Add a nighttime treatment oil to your routine.

– Switch from body lotion to body cream.

-Consider changing your cleanser (body and face) from a gel or soap base to one which has a creamy or milky texture.

-Add a hydrating product to your regimen to assist in delivering and holding water moisture in the skin. (Try Skin Remedy’s Hydrating Serum).

-Don’t forget to exfoliate, which enables hydrating and moisturizing products to penetrate deeper within the skin.
