ScrimpvSplurge

Oh, the joys of wandering down drugstore beauty aisles. Under the glare of fluorescent lights and overwhelmed by row upon row of countless products promising only the best for your complexion, perhaps you’ve questioned your decision to choose professional over store-bought skincare. Is it cheaper? Is it more convenient? Is it just as effective? While everyone secretly hopes that the Target generic is just as good as the serum applied by the esthetician, that’s simply not the case. And although clinical skincare may seem like a splurge to some, when you compare the efficacy and quality of ingredients in professional versus drugstore products, you’ll likely find “savings” insignificant. But, the proof is in the pudding, right? Well, here’s the pudding: Active Ingredients: Working Hard or…

Men & Skincare

When it comes to men’s attention to grooming and skincare, let’s just say the manscape is changing. While women still bear the brunt of beauty standard up-keep, it’s definitely become more socially acceptable – and often encouraged – for men to take on more than a bar-soap-skincare regimen. Skin issues don’t gender discriminate, so adult acne, dry skin, sunburn and other common skin conditions can certainly grace his face if he foregoes a proper skincare routine. And although he may balk at owning a product collection that rivals his partner’s, his current and future complexion will thank him for at least adopting these skincare basics:   Shave smarter. According to a recent consumer poll conducted by the American Academy of Dermatology (Academy), 78 percent of…

Botanicals & Sensitive Skin

You’d have to live under a rock to not know that botanicals have quickly become one of the biggest buzzwords in beauty. Due to continued consumer interest in and demand for natural products, botanicals form the largest category of cosmeceutical additives found in the marketplace today. But whether or not you fall into the customer category of “green” or “eco-conscious,” the reality is, botanicals have intrinsic skincare properties that can benefit most everyone – especially those with sensitive skin. In contrast to harsh chemical or man-made ingredients, which can often leave skin irritated, active botanicals can offer those with skin sensitivities a gentle and effective alternative. And when botanicals like Aloe, lavender and chamomile naturally offer anti-inflammatory, soothing and calming properties, why recreate the wheel?…

Making Skincare a Priority

Taking Skincare Seriously: When Do I Start? While some people have pampered their skin since they noticed their first pimple, many have mistakenly partaken in the highly ineffective abuse-ignore-panic phases of skincare, which go something like this: Teens (Abuse): I should take off my makeup before bed, but I’m just…too…tired. Twenties (Ignore): Stay up late. Wake up early. Repeat. Thirties (Panic): OMG…Crow’s feet?! So, just when should you make skincare a priority, and what is a realistic expectation for each age group? In short, it’s always best to turn attention to your skin before it turns on you, but it’s also important to note that each decade has different skincare needs. So, to avoid the abuse-ignore-panic cycle, instead consider this approach: Teens (Prevent & Protect):…

Dangers of DIY

And while at-home complexion concoctions may seem like a fun, easy and more affordable alternative to professional skincare, according to skincare expert Ellen Clark, a licensed esthetician and founder of Control Corrective Skincare Systems, there is a dark side to DIY. “DIY beauty lore has been around forever, but the Internet and social media have proliferated the dissemination of skincare ‘tall tales’ that can actually have detrimental effects,” she said. “Before raiding the pantry…
