Transitioning Your Skincare Routine in Spring from the Brutal Winter

Facial 2

As we transition from winter to spring our skincare routine needs to transform with us. Thanks to the frigid temperatures this past winter weve gone through dreary moods, dry, and itchy skin that have wreaked havoc on our bodies, so weve slather ourselves with heavy balms and serums. Now that the warmer air is on the way we have to prep our skin for the sunny day ahead.

Susan Ciminelli shares a few tips on glowing skin for Spring time!

  1. The first thing to do is replace your cleanser with a lightweight creamy one. We also recommend a cleanser with hyaluronic acid for extra hydration and keeping pores cleaned.

Hyaluronic acid is a lubricating, clear substance thats produced by the body naturally. In the human body, hyaluronic acid is found in the greatest concentrations in the skin, inside joints, within the eye sockets and in other tissues where it helps retain collagen, increase moisture, and provide elasticity and flexibility.

  1. Exfoliate, Exfoliate, Exfoliate! You dont just do it to your whole body, you do it to your fast too. You want to get rid of all of the dry skin particles and blocked pores.

Our Algae Deep Cleanse is the perfect cleanser for spring and any season. This unique, natural exfoliant contains glycogen that melts away dead skin cells deep within pores, leaving skin feeling smooth and soft after months of harsh weather. Algae Deep Cleanse can be used around the eyes, mouth, neck, and dcollet to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. This best-selling cleanser is priced at $65.00.

Cut down excess oil by incorporating products containing glycolic acid.

  1. You also want to transition into a light-weight moisturizer to keep your skin hydrated and cool throughout the day. The skin holds more water in the spring and summer so it is important use SPF 30 or higher.

Our Moisture Replenishing Day Cream soothes dry skin and softens fine lines and wrinkles. This cream is comprised of essential ingredients such as shea butter, Vitamins A, C, and E, and soybean protein, all of which serve to nourish and heal skin after the cold, drying winter months. This day cream is priced at $125.00.

  1. Summer skincare routine should be fairly simple. Instead of a heavy foundation opt-in for a tinted moisturizer.

Very Berry Serums antioxidant-rich formula is essential for providing your skin with nutrients, combating free radicals, and preventing wrinkles. This ultra-lightweight serum also adds a natural tint to skin when added to your day or night cream. This serum is priced at $105.00.

  1. Combat Dry Skin with a hydrating mask.

Whether youre in need of a quick skin pick-me-up or looking to return your skin to its natural glow and youthful appearance, 1-2-3 Glow kit is the perfect solution. This affordable kit provides a luxurious, spa-worthy facial that you can do at home, including a skin peel, a nourishing skin-activating serum, and a deep hydrating mask. In less than thirty minutes, you can have healthy skin and a long-lasting, luminous glow. This beauty treatment is being offered at $29.99.

 

Are You Getting Enough Magnesium?

magnesium

For many, incorporating veggies and other magnesium-rich foods can be extremely beneficial, especially if that is one mineral your body is lacking due to your diet or lifestyle choices. Sometimes, just a small tweak in our diet can help boost our energy levels, mood, skin appearance, hair shine and digestion. Although walking into a health food store or vitamin shop can seem overwhelming, heading to the proper aisle to assist your needs can be easy once you are informed on the nutritional benefits of the supplement or vitamin that you are interested in consuming. A great place to start is including more magnesium into your diet.

Magnesium is a mineral that plays a role in energy production; it helps regulate muscle and nerve function, blood glucose levels and blood pressure levels. Magnesium helps with bone and cell formation, nerve transmission and helps to create a normal and steady heart rhythm as well.

This mineral is found in many common foods items that you may be consuming on a daily basis, such as pumpkin seeds, leafy green vegetables, beans, brown rice, spinach, carrots, cashews and sesame seeds. Another great way to include magnesium into your diet is trying our Blue Green Algae Pills.

These anti-aging supplements remineralize the system as they increase the levels of calcium and magnesium in the body, due to a special delicate and proprietary drying process that ensures the highest standard of purity. Incorporating this mineral with the proper serving size into your diet could possibly relieve a few symptoms you may be experiencing.

Benefits of Magnesium:

-Prevents Migraines

-Calms Anxiety/ Nerves

-PMS Symptoms

-Helps with Bone Formation

-Increases energy

-Aids in digestion

-Regulates calcium levels

Although everyone’s needs may differ when it comes to the proper amount of Magnesium that should be consumed, you may find the right amount depending on your age, gender, or if you are pregnant or breast feeding here.

Signs you may be Magnesium deficient:

-Anxiety

-Nausea

-Irritability

-Agitation

-Muscle Weakness

-Poor memory

-Lethargy

Try adding more of this helpful mineral into your diet, and begin to feel the benefits! As always, consult with your doctor before adding any supplements to your diet. For many, the information above may or may not be a sign of magnesium deficiency, but learning about the benefits and warning signs may help lead you to a better approach of self-care.

Exclusive Q&A with Susan Ciminelli

Q: How do you explain whats going on internally with someone, you have a girl who has pimples all over her cheeks, her chin, her forehead as opposed to a girl that just has pimples, you know, here and there. How do you explain whats going on inside of them?

A: Thats a really great question. Thats something I learned at a very early age there is somebody I was reading all of his books as much as I could when I was younger. His name is Edgar Casey and he believed that diseases started internally and he taught me the importance of having a clean colon. You know our large intestine. So when I got into the business I realized that people who had an impacted colon were impacted all the time, all of the garbage that it was accumulating in their system would leech into their blood stream in their lymphatic system and it would come out through their pores.

So your body uses FOUR different organs to push garbage and waste out of. Your lungs for gasses waste,bladder for liquid waste, colon for solid waste, and thenpores. Their considered an Orpheus or a whole or an opening and every opening that your body has, you know your ear wax comes out, eye gook comes out, nose excess mucus comes out, pores release sweat and pimples! So it all depends number 1 where the break out is, what it means, but number 2 your general question about what happens when a somebodies broken up all over their face, they are really polluted inside.

Lets imagine that in your house you have a gigantic garbage can and all of your rooms in your house need to be emptied, you need to empty the garbage from each room into that big receptacle. The big receptacle is filled to the top but you keep trying to add garbage to it. So what happens? The Garbage spills all over and when it spills all over it leeches into your blood stream in your lymphatic fluid and thats when somebody breaks out. The way God made us, it was so ingenious because your skin doesnt lie it always teaches you what happens internally, so the bottom line is if youre breaking out all over, all the time or even with pimples popping up here and there occasionally always check the colon first. You need to increase your fiber, which would be in the form of fresh fruits and vegetables, bran type crackers that are almost like eating sawdust, short grain brown rice as opposed to white rice which can clog you.

Q: So you would suggest brown rice?

A: Short grain is the best, yes brown rice but short grain is the best. But fiber is really good for you and people should look up the best forms of fiber that resonates to their taste buds and their palette because fiber acts like the scrub brush, right? But you also need liquids and people dont realize how much water they need to drink. For every pound that you weigh you need to drink a half of ounce of water per pound. And when youre eating fiber and drinking the right amount of water throughout the day what happens is the fiber will expand in your gut and act like a brush and clean out your colon. There also some really good very gentle colon cleansing herbs and herbal concoctions. My favorite is super cleanse by Natures Secret and because of my problem, and by the way my colon was problematic from the time I was a little girl and thats what got me into the business because I was impacted. I could not go to the bathroom. And so as an adult when I started to read Edgar Caseys book and learn how to detox the colon very gently. I discovered these pills and I started out taking 3 every night with a glass of water right before bed and within a couple days when I would wake up in the morning I started really cleaning out my colon, it was great. I felt much better, much lighter, and I had more energy. My pores were smaller and my little pimples went away.

Once I was able to evacuate my colon the right way then I started taking probiotics. I really experimented and probiotics are the friendly bacteria that when theyre in your gut they help to keep breaking down your food so that your body could release it. The best one, after years of experimenting with the pill form, that worked for me the best was liquid acidophilus and the brand that I like the most is called LifeTime, and the flavor I personally like the most is blueberry. And I like the one thats actually made from dairy but if somebody is lactose intolerant of course they also make it where dairy is not the source of it. Once that friendly bacteria, that mantle is corrected within your body and your colon, your gut, and then your body will be more regulated and your other organs like your liver, gallbladder, pancreas, stomach, and all the other organs can then dump their waste into the blood stream and the blood stream can deposit it into the colon, thats whats happening. As soon as somebody is broken out when I do facials on them those are the first questions I ask them. How regularly do you go to the bathroom? I even ask them how big is it? Because you have to go at least 18 inches twice a day.

Q: Really?

A: Yep, that is a goal people should aspire to because what stays behind in your colon solidifies and it turns into like a black tar and that black tar is very difficult to remove I kid you not, you should google it!

Q: If you could see my face right now, Im like disgusted (laughs). Thats really interesting to know, so when they come to you, you see their face and you can immediately kind of tell what it is that is wrong with them? Where its coming from?

A: Exactly, depending on where they break out, even the type of break out they have. If they have a very fatty breakout you know like, oily pimples, there are different types of pimples. Some are infectious, some are just trapped oils and fats. Like for instance, if people eat too much dairy, theyll get these white heads called Melia. That means that their bodies not able to break down dairy they should back off, they really dont want to back off they should switch from Cows milk cheese to Goats milk cheese and sheeps milk cheese because its much easier to break that protein chain down than it is cows milk cheese. Its very difficult for humans to break it down. So I always encourage that person who has melia to eat radishes because radishes help to get rid of that excess protein in the body from the dairy that they cannot absorb and eliminate through their colon so its coming out there pores. Does that make sense?

Q: It does. So speaking of breakouts, when I was younger my mom would actually tell me and my sister to put toothpaste on our pimples, is that something that you would suggest doing or how do you prevent breakouts?

A: Ok. Preventing breakouts comes from cleaning the colon, I dont know why youre mom told you that but I respect her but the thing is in todays day in age were using clay. We use sea clay, we use camphor plus clay, and we use camphor, zinc, and clay altogether because clay has the tendency to absorb and itll also increase the circulation. When the circulation is increased that means that blood is going to come to that area and the blood carries nutrients and takes away toxic waste. So when you treat a pimple externally with our sea clay mask or our pore minimizing mask, itll speed up the time frame for the pimple to heal. Itll heal much more rapidly, does that makes sense?

Q: It does make sense, so being that its colder with the winter climate right now, a lot of our skin is flaky, and our lips are cracking. How do we prevent that from happening?

A: How do you prevent that kind of dryness? I developed a system early on where its not just cleanser, toner, and moisturizer like other cosmetic companies did. Years ago I discovered the healing benefits of the sea and also from essential oils. Theyre very powerful and they go back thousands of years. Cleopatra used them, the Chinese used them, and ancient Chinese used them. They carry a power like acupuncture does when you use them on the body. They move energy through your body, they increase your circulation, they help kill bacteria, and they also nourish the skin. So my skincare products are set up in such a way where when youre going through winter, our clients do not have that problem because theyre cleansing without stripping their skin. We have a great cleansing system that doesnt strip the skin and then instead of going right to a moisturizer, we have this 3-step process in between where youre using essential oils to hydrate your skin, Marine Lotion which is like a serum which is very powerful, its based with Algae, and then you spray yourself with Seawater which helps these 3 things together deeply penetrate the skin. And then when youre wet from these 3 things you put your moisturizer on and you put it on all over your face, your neck, your dcollet, and you do it around your mouth as well and I guarantee you youll breeze through winter without a problem, you wont be peeling, you wont have that roughness because I grew up in Buffalo, NY and the winters were bitter, very, very bad. I was a vain tomboy, I was always outside playing with my 4 brothers and I was just like a boy, and so if they could do I it, I could do it. My skin would be so raw and I was always on a quest to heal it. How can I make this go away because it was so uncomfortable and my mom never knew what to do and because my job was doing the dishes all the time and I was always interacting with food I discovered the healing benefits when food touches your skin, what it does to you. So I would coat my face with olive oil.

Q: So when, well at least for millenials, when should we start getting facials?

A: Ok, thats a really good question. It all depends on what your skin is going through. So in my opinion you can start getting facials as a teenager.I think it just depends on what your skin looks like. How often you should get a facial? Typically women get facials every 4 weeks, with the economy being what it is, women stopped getting facials as often and now they stretch to every 6 to 7 weeks but that being said I just came up with a new kit. Its called 123 glow, and it is a do-it-yourself facial kit that you can use at home and the first. Its really cool and its very inexpensive, its $29.99 and its a way for you to care for yourself at home if you cant make it to the spa.

Q: Oh great, that was going to be next my question.

A: Yup, this is what you do. So this kit, it starts, you have to put it on a clean skin and then you take the 1st vile that you open up, its a peel, but its very gentle. It wont turn your skin pink yet alone red, it will not burn you at all its very gentle. Its made from lactic acid. So you put that all over your face, neck, all around your mouth, all around your nose, everywhere youre breaking out. Then you open up the 2ndvile, after a couple of minutes its the next step, which is organic hyaluronic acid and this acid will replenish the moisture that was in your tissue when you were a little girl and as we age the amount of hyaluronic acid naturally leaves the cells. So this replenishes that, you reserve one quarter of the vile for the afterwards, for the very end. Right on top of these two viles that are on your skin right now the 3rd step is a packet of this really rich mask, its full of vitamins, nutrients, minerals, you open that up and you put like two thirds of that all over your face and your neck and your dcollet and you rub it in a little bit just let it sit there and after a few minutes you refresh it with the rest of it thats in the packet where it start to get dry on your face and after about 10 minutes remove it with a warm damp wash cloth. Make sure its completely off your face and then you take the last little quarter bit of the hyaluronic acid and you top off your face and your neck and your dcollet and youre done. You can go in to your own moisturizer if you want or some people dont have to most people dont have to. Most people do this at night when theyre relaxed, they do it in the bathtub or they do it before a big date, important date. Young girls want to look really cool for their boyfriends and they want their make up to go on well. Did you ever notice that sometimes when you put your make up on it flakes around your nose?

Q: Oh Gosh! Yessss.

A: This would prevent that. So before any important event its a good thing to do or even if youre just a lovely busy mother and housewife and you want to look great when you pick your kids up from school or when your husband comes home from work. Its a way to really look refreshed and turn back the clock. Millennials dont have to worry about turning back the clock but they do have to worry about the makeup thats clinging to the side of their nose and this peel really takes it away.

The Magic of Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic acid has become pretty mainstream in the skincare industry, and its amazing that not a lot of people are aware that the acid is already present in the bodyit is naturally hydrating, firming and plumping the skin. However, as you age, the levels decrease in the body so its important to incorporate hyaluronic acid serum into your skincare routine to maintain that youthful glow. Its one of the most extraordinarily beneficial ingredients for all skin types.

In much simpler terms, hyaluronic acid has powerful anti-aging properties and is one of the premier hydrating ingredients for skin, all skin types that is. Oily, sensitive, or acne-prone, doesnt matter, you can use it!

So how does it benefit the skin? Its truly magic.

This magic is in its ability to replenish moisture, a lot of moisture! Hyaluronic acid is able to hold 1000 times its weight in water within skin cells, showing that it is a strong biological substance. Mind-blowing!

A major quality of youthful skin is its ability to hold water and retain an equal amount of moisture. So as we age, our skin loses the ability to plump moisture as it once did when we were younger. The result of this is loss of firmness and a diminished appearance of plumpness and suppleness. This is where the fine lines and wrinkles come into play. Hyaluronic acid can enhance moisture content beyond comparison with anything else, and at the same time revitalize skins outer layers so they look and feel softer, smoother, and, especially, radiantly hydrated! Thats how it instantly improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Hyaluronic acid is also incredibly gentle, for even the most sensitive, redness-prone skin. In fact, its positive influence on skins surface is due in part to its natural calming benefit, which means it can help sensitive skin as well as acne-prone skin.

Now that you know how hyaluronic acid can benefit your skin, and youre wondering which product holds this special magic ingredient?

Look no further. For ALL skin types, Susan Ciminelli has created the 1-2-3 GLOW kit. A do it yourself three-step facial kit face with natural ingredients to reveal your skin’s youthful glow in under 30 minutes.

1st step: Skin Peel

2nd step: Organic Hyaluronic Acid

3rd step: Deep Hydrating Mask

For the Love of Avocados

Is avocado making a name for itself or what? Listed as one of the top skin care trends for 2017, could it be the new coconut oil? Probably not, as each has their own separate benefits but there are major brownie points to eating avocado and applying the oil topically. The craze of the benefits of avocado oil are all over the internet, an obscene amount of hashtags mentioned on Twitter and Instagram, and let’s not forget the DIYer’s adding it to their at-home face masks.

Here’s the 4-1-1, the secret of this little fruit’s success is in the oil, about 77% of an avocado’s overall caloric composition (the more ideal the nutritional composition of a food, the more valuable it is as a source of calories), and avocado my friends is very valuable. Avocado is a nutrient-dense food, which means all the good stuff is packed together.

There are a many benefits to applying avocado oil, here are a few:

  1. Strengthens the Skin– Let’s just say it’s a super-food for your skin. By moisturizing it into the skin it boost’s the ability to generate more cells, stronger cells that is. There are 3 primary skin-feeding nutrients which are vitamin E, potassium, and lecithin. They are all easily absorbed where they provide energy for the growth and health of new skin as well as strengthening existing cells.
  2. Detoxification– Did you know avocado oil is LOADED with chlorophyll, you know, a natural source of magnesium? Which, in fact, is one of the best-known natural substances for removing heavy metals like mercury and lead from the liver, kidneys, brain, and other organs in the body.
  3. Highest in Vitamin E: This fat-soluble and powerful antioxidant vitamin is known for improving skin and eye health, providing defense against oxidative damage to cells caused by free-radicals.
  4. Oleic Acid– Oleic acid is known to have positive effects throughout the body. It can lower the risk of some cancers, prevent flare-ups of certain auto-immune diseases, speed cell regeneration, aid the body in eliminating microbial infections, and help reduce inflammation inside and out.

Keeping the benefits in mind there are two Susan Ciminelli products that contain avocado oil. Our Cleansing Milk is a super light-weight aroma therapeutic milky cleanser used for removing makeup and daily impurities. Our Body Buff, a full body scrub, leaves the skin feeling silky smooth and soft. The Dead Sea salts gently exfoliate while the essential oils replenish moisture into the skin and repair damage caused by stress and harsh environments. While these products contain Avocado oil, it works to bring rich anti-aging nutrients into the skin while soothing, unclogging pores, and promoting a radiant skin tone.

Your skin never lies.

Your skin never lies.

If you have breakouts, your skin is trying to tell you something. Depending on where you break out on your face and body, you need to cleanse your system from the inside out. Eating a healthy diet does not necessarily mean you have to give up flavor. You can have your cake and eat it too, you can have your wine and occasional cocktail without throwing your body out of balance. There are some simple rules to follow to insure you are getting the nutrients your body needs in order to be healthy. Even before you eat breakfast, you need to prepare your system for food and beverage. Your alimentary canal goes from your mouth to your anus inside.

In ancient cultures, they practice cleansing the alimentary canal each and every day before they eat or drink anything. Being clean inside allows your bodies immune system to flourish. What good is a healthy diet if you don’t have a clean system to receive your food? Digestion, absorption (assimilation) and proper elimination are key to health and wellness.

You earn beautiful skin by bringing your body into balance.

Before you eat in the morning you must practice great oral hygiene. Scraping your tongue, flossing and brushing your teeth along with rinsing your mouth with sea salt water (1 tablespoon of sea salt in glass of warm water) help to cleanse your mouth thoroughly before you eat every morning. After you eat your breakfast, make sure to brush your teeth again and rinse your mouth thoroughly.fruits and veggies

Breakfast can consist of fresh fruit, berries, ground flax seeds, non fat yogurt and walnuts help to sustain you for hours until lunch.

For lunch, dark green leafy lettuces such as kale, watercress, dark green outer leaves of Romaine lettuce, fresh parsley, basil and cilantro, which help to bind with heavy metals in the body allowing you to safely discard them through your colon.Adding a lean protein such as white meat chicken or turkey, wild fish (nothing farm raised), shrimp, and lobster help to complete this dish and sustain you for hours until your 4:00 pm snack time. This type of salad is perfect for you to maintain your health and wellness.

Dinner would consist of fresh lean protein that has been baked, broiled, or steamed, steamed veggies tossed with fresh squeezed citrus juice and parsley.

Eating slowly insures that you will not over eat. Your brain has time to listen to your stomach when it sends the message saying you are full and satiated.

Eating like this avoids dark circles under the eyes, dry skin patches, large pores, bloating, water retention, weak immune system, irritability, mood swings, menstrual cramps, pimples, low energy, and inflammatory diseases such as arthritis.

Super Ingredient: Aloe

21034673 - aloe leaves with drops, isolated on white

One of the most nourishing plants for our bodies and minds is aloe. Whether applied topically or consumed internally, aloe can have amazing effects on one’s health, wellness, and beauty. Aloe is a succulent plant found in tropical, warm climates worldwide and has been used medicinally since ancient Egyptian times.

Aloe juice and other beverages containing aloe have gained popularity in recent years. When ingested, aloe detoxifies the body, supports the immune system, lowers cholesterol, and aids in digestion and absorption of nutrients. Aloe juice can promote healing from the inside out, which can be reflected in the skin. When consumed regularly, foods like aloe will minimize dry skin and inflammatory skin conditions such as psoriasis.

When applied topically, aloe has even more nourishing properties. Aloe’s antimicrobial properties reduce acne and infection, and aloe is also shown to accelerate wound healing, lighten blemishes, prevent and minimize the appearance of wrinkles, and moisturize. Aloe contains vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and antioxidants that leave skin feeling rejuvenated. In the winter, aloe can play a huge role in helping skin retain moisture, leaving skin feeling supple and smooth. In the summer, aloe’s anti-inflammatory and cooling properties make it a wonderful remedy for sunburned skin.

Many of Susan’s skincare products contain aloe juice, including the Hydrating Gel Mask, Body Silk, Eye and Wrinkle Cream, Revitalizing Sensitive Skin Moisturizer, Moisture Replenishing Day Cream, Power C Moisturizer, Algae Deep Cleanse, and more.
