Summer Skin Rehab

Summer Skin Rehab By Barbies Beauty Bits

With all the humidity, UV exposure, saltwater, and chlorine, the Summer months can wreak havoc on our skin, which is why I recommend some Summer skin rehab.  Even for those diehards who have applied safe sunscreen measures religiously and keep ourselves properly hydrated. Some environmental factors can still impact the skin, causing free radical damage to the skin cells.

And with only one month left in the Summer, it is time for us to start thinking about getting our skin ready for cooler weather, and a Summer skin rehab, refresher is just what you need.

Here are a few of our suggestions to help rejuvenate and refresh your Summer damaged skin:

Summer Skin Rehab At Home
To refresh your dry Summer skin, consider starting at home. With a little TLC, you can improve the look and feel of your Summer skin, even with just one pampering session.

Exfoliating is an excellent place to start; if you want healthy, glowing skin, you should be exfoliating! However, avoid overdoing it, as it can weaken the protective skin barrier.  Always follow up with an intense hydrating moisturizer that contains hyaluronic acid to provide long-lasting moisture to soothe and restore your complexion. Hyaluronic acid attracts up to 1000 times its weight in moisture; for that reason, it is ultra-moisturizing and helps keep your Summer skin hydrated, plump, and radiant. It even visibly softens fine lines and wrinkles.

Professional Skincare Treatments For Damaged Summer Skin by barbies beauty bits

Get A Professional Skincare Treatment
Sun damage, chemicals, abrasion – it all adds up. Luckily, there are new technologies available to help your summer skin.

To step up your exfoliating game, we highly suggest some professional skincare rehab treatments. To ensure you are getting the right treatment and results, we recommend visiting a trained cosmetic dermatologist. 

One professional exfoliating treatment I love is a micro peel. Because this is a potent peel, it offers a more significant exfoliating boost than an at-home treatment, and no worries there is no downtime. This peel is fantastic at improving your skin's texture, reducing discoloration from the sun, minimizing your pores, while overall brightening your complexion. Also, another treatment to consider for damaged Summer skin is some laser skin rejuvenation.

Make Some Lifestyle Changes
Life is all about balance. And the health of our skin is no different. With everything going on in the world currently, stress is going to be at an all-time high, resulting in a lack of sleep, unhealthy eating, and excessive alcohol consumption, all of which can harm our skin.

For our skin to be healthy, there is more to it than just skincare products and treatments. For example, eating properly, even getting our beauty sleep. Yes, it is real. Getting at least eight hours of rest is crucial for skin renewal because as we sleep, our skin rests, recovers, and renews. Also, you want to make sure you are drinking plenty of water. If your body is not hydrated, your skin starts to look dry and flaky. For a dewy, hydrated complexion you want to drink at least eight glasses of water a day, even consider drinking infused water for an extra boost.

Tips to prevent your face from breaking out from wearing a face mask by barbies beauty bits

Give Your Skin A Breather
Our skin, just like everything else in our life, may need a break! Especially now that we are all required to wear facial masks, people experience "maskne."

To help reduce skin irritations and breakouts caused by wearing a facemask, consider implementing some ideas like:
  • Limit your makeup use when wearing a mask. If you are wearing makeup, the mask is like a filthy makeup brush, pressing dirt, sweat, and other microbes into the skin.
  • Do not over wash. While it may be tempting to wash your face before and after you wear a mask, you do not want to overdo it. Dry skin can cause irritation and breakouts.
  • Stay away from harsh skincare ingredients. I will be the last person to promote staying away from anti-aging products. However, if you wear a face mask frequently, you want to lighten up on ingredients like retinol.
So, there you have it beauties our top remedies for some Summer skin rehab, until next time!

The Benefits Of Using Shampoo Without Water

Shampoo Without Water By Barbies Beauty Bits

Did I just say, shampoo without water? Yes, but technically you do need water to activate it. And while this is a powder, it is not technically a dry shampoo. So what am I talking about here? What Are The Actual Benefits Of Using Shampoo Without Water?

You see shampoo without water, aka "Waterless Beauty" is one of the newest beauty trends. As the water in most beauty products is not needed, it is just an inexpensive filler ingredient.  Compared to most shampoo that contains tons of wasteful ingredients, preservatives, and about 70%-80% water. CIC Beauty's Neo-powder shampoo does not. It is a concentrated powder that contains no chemicals.

What is in it is what intrigued me. Potent, ecologically conscious ingredients that are gentle on the hair and the environment.

The Power Is In The Powder

Hair And Scalp Loving Ingredients
Think of all of the great ingredients for your skin and hair, and it is in this waterless shampoo. For example.
  • Caffeine and Vitamin B3 (Niacin)  to help stimulate the scalp and promote hair growth.
  • Hyaluronic acid and vitamin B5 for a fuller, thicker hair.
  • Apple Cider Vinegar balances PH and closes hair cuticles to reduce frizz.
  • Blend of ginger and hemp, mild but refreshing scent.
  • And a blend of some other amazing ingredients.

Benefits Of A Waterless Shampoo

The main advantage of using a shampoo without water (aside from saving the planet) is that you are getting a concentrated product of ingredients you need and will benefit from, rather than a water-diluted product as you find in most liquid shampoos.  

Consistency Of A Waterless Shampoo
This is a powder to lather shampoo. Meaning it starts as a fine powder, but it is specially formulated that when mixed with water, it turns in a creamy foam, that cleanses your scalp and hair without stripping away your hair's natural oils. And with the health of my hair, a product that gently cleanses and hydrates, I need.

How To Use A Waterless Shampoo, By Barbies Beauty Bits

How To Use Neo Powder Waterless Shampoo
To get maximum results, CIC Beauty recommends shampooing twice. Since I only wash my hair about once a week, this was a norm to me, as the first wash is to cleanse the scalp of dirt and oil. The second is to penetrate deep into the scalp to stimulate hair growth, balancing the PH, and more.

Do It Dry Or Do It Wet
While this is not a dry shampoo, the dry washing does remind me of dry shampoo. As before you get into the shower, you want to apply the Neo Powder Shampoo on your roots and massage evenly on the scalp.

Then jump in the shower, and when you get your hair wet, you will notice a lather.

If you think that is too much work, while in the shower you can simply sprinkle the Neo powder into your hand, activate it with water, and once the powder has turned into a foam, apply to your hair and lather up.

Sunscreen Ingredients, More Harm Than Good By Ginjo Beauty And Barbies Beauty Bits

Sunscreen Ingredients, More Harm Than Good? And Safer Alternatives
Did you know that EWG has investigated the safety and efficiency of USA sunscreens and ingredients over the past decade? Unfortunately, due to the weak federal rules set by the FDA, many inferior products reach store shelves, touting overstated sun-protection claims, with ingredients that can be potentially harmful.

People are becoming more aware of the dangers of overexposure to the sun and its links to cancer and premature aging. But the scary part is Americans have fewer choices, and notably, more inferior protection than other countries because of the sunscreen ingredient options.

So, if Sunscreen Ingredients Are More Harm Than Good, what are we to do? Obviously, vowing to never go in the sun isn't an option, but there are a lot of what we like to call "Common Sense Approaches To The Sun," and we'd like to share these alternative approaches with you today.
