    How to Keep Oily Skin from Causing Breakouts

    Oils produced by the body help keep skin healthy, but there can be too much of a good thing. Excess oil can lead to blemishes and acne flare-ups. Dr. Jennifer Linder, Chief Scientific Officer for PCA SKIN provided some interesting insight for those of us that struggle with oily skin, along with why excess oils lead to breakouts and what we can do to keep it in check!
    “Oily skin tends to be a “sluggish” skin condition, meaning it does not effectively shed dead surface cells as easily as normal skin due to the increased oil production acting almost as the glue holding the dead cells together. It is important to add in an exfoliating treatment on a weekly basis that also assists in purifying the pores. PCA SKIN’s Purifying Mask is a clay-based mask with micro-fine pumice that draws out impurities, helps to minimize oil production while also providing gentle exfoliation. Nighttime products containing pure retinol are also a fantastic way to regulate cellular turnover and oil production. I highly recommend PCA SKIN’s Intensive Clarity Treatment at night to increase cellular turnover while regulating oil production.”

Many of those trendy treatments contain ingredients such as synthetic fragrances, parabens, phthalates, etc. that sit there, being soaked up by your skin. Not to mention, they’re not the most environment-friendly once they’re thrown away.

    @Clayspray for Your Winter Skincare Routine

    I’d love believe that with over half of February behind us, Old Man Winter is making his retreat… but these weekly (and sometimes twice weekly) snowstorms and cold weather tell a different story. So until I can start thinking about packing away the the heavy coat and switching to something light and springy, my winter skincare routine is in full effect.

    Here are my top 5 winter skincare quick tips:

    1. Go easy on the heat.
      Hot water dries out your skin, so suds up with lukewarm water instead.
    2. Time the moisturizer.
      Apply moisturizer immediately after washing your face while it’s still damp; it will absorb moisture better.
    3. Don’t ditch the sunscreen.
      There are less hours of sunlight each day, but winter sun combined with snow glare can still damage skin.
    4. Switch to a heavier moisturizer.
      The same light moisturizer that gets you through the summer might not cut it in the winter. Switch to a heavier cream to combat winter dryness.
    5. Let your skin glow.
      Shed that layer of dull, dead skin by using an exfoliating mask to smooth and add a natural glow.

    Keeping those tips in  mind, I recently tried out Clayspray, a clay mask in a spray. The Clayspray line consists of five different masks, each addressing a specific skin care concern: Pore Refining, Skin Brightening, Glow, Toning and Mattifying.


    I considered the different options and decided on Glow because wheres my skin is oily in the summer, it tends to be dry during the winter.


    It comes out like a gel shaving cream. I like that I didn’t have to fumble with a tube–it’s very convenient to apply.

    After I sat with the mask on for a few minutes while it dried, I was able to easily rinse it off — and the results? My skin felt softer, refreshed and had a noticeable glow. Most clay masks have a drying effect because they work to draw out impurities and environmental toxins from deep within your pores. But Clayspray also deposits moisture and nutrients to your skin, which makes it different from regular clay masks. It’s awesome because that means I don’t have to follow up my clay mask with a moisturizing mask like I normally do in the winter.

    The clay is sourced from the Irene Mine in Spain’s Iberian Peninsula where it has been protected from pollution and contamination for thousands of years.

    Fresh Face with @WhenMask

    Yesterday I got an awesome package from KOREA!  It contains 5 facial masks that solve skin issues like dehydration, dullness and the sense of blah.  When Masks are the perfect solution for busy women who need to give their skin the extra TLC it needs in a hassle free face mask that is both time and budget friendly. They are available at Sephora for $28. Way better than getting a facial at a spa!

    There are 2 pieces of film and the mask is in the middle. The one side is a shiny plastic, the other is like mesh paper – The MIDDLE mask is a gel texture. You can see from the pic below on that I put the mesh paper on my face by accident. LOL

    When Masks use a bio-cellulose sheet, a soft, gentle material made from coconuts that fits to stay on your face. There are five different formulas available using this material that is highly effective in delivering nutrients to the skin. It only has to stay on your skin for 20 minutes and you will feel a huge difference afterwards!

    A great item for travel, everyday and a little bit of at home pampering. If you are stuck for a mother’s day present idea – Try WHEN masks!
