Our Skin Care Tips

Getting Your Teen On A Skincare Routine September 24 2018, 0 Comments

Getting through your teen years without any skincare issues is almost impossible. Our skin expert and founder Jenette Serrins offers helpful advice on teen skin care and an ongoing regimen that can help prevent acne, blemishes and scarring. Cleansing carefully should be the basis of any skin care routine and especially so for teen skin, even as young as eight years old. 

Chemical warfare or going the natural route

Many over the counter and prescription cleansers for teen skin assume your teen will suffer from breakouts or acne and rely on harsh chemicals and alcohols to dry out skin while trying to achieve simple cleanliness.

Choosing to go the natural route for your teen’s skin is more beneficial in the long run, and with the right regimen and consistency, will achieve the same and most likely better results.

Cleansing twice a day will give your teen the best skin possible, all while preventing acne!  I suggest using Just Add Sugar Soap Bar, followed by Be Clean - Detoxifying Toner. Both of these products will help control oil if necessary and won’t dry out your skin when used properly, which can send you on a vicious circle of cleaning, oil build up, more cleaning, possible dryness and then more bumps.

After toning add a few drops of Be Clean - Detoxifying Elixir onto skin, if a child is broken out, pressing the oil into the skin is recommended. This Clean Elixir will give you a layer of hydration that can never clog your pores, as well as helping calm redness and bumps. 

Finally, kill bacteria and prevent future breakouts with our miracle Just Add Sugar - Cacao Herbal Infusion Masque, when you have acneic skin you should use this masque about 2-3 times per week, even if just while you floss and brush your teeth;).

See what others have to say about the products in my Acne Kit:

"I've tried countless products over the years for my acne prone skin that is overly sensitive and now showing signs of aging. Someone once told me you can't cover up unhealthy skin- and I finally took note to change what was under my makeup. This line has changed my skin, pore size, and texture and has truly made my skin healthy and glowing. I've never gotten such amazing results from any other product. I moved from LA to Austin but still buy all my facial products from Jenette. Nothing quite like it! " - Anne on Feb 05, 2018

Other tips you could share with your teen:

Keep your hands clean, and don’t touch your face throughout the day, this helps keep unwanted bacteria off your face! Tell them this simple trick and they will see a difference in no time.

If you have teen girls that are wearing make-up, make sure they are not sharing their products and that they choose clean products. I suggest Jane Iredale Mineral Cosmetics, the skin care make-up, as it doesn’t clog pores, calms redness, acts as sunscreen and causes no additional oiliness.

Should your teen use hair products it would be good to check how they use them and if any of the product ends up on their face. A little mindfulness here goes a long way.

With a daily thorough cleansing and balancing regimen, your teen should feel a difference and want to continue on this path.  If the acne is not going away after a month, contact a recommended aesthetician for a Teen Facial.  Jenette offers these at her spa, being in LA and the kids LOVE them!

Setting your teen up with a simple yet effective skincare regimen will set them up for a lifetime of good hygiene and skincare routines that will not only make them feel good about themselves in their teen years but also protect their skin in the long run.

Ditch the Accutane for a Healthier Life, all while having healthy and clear skin! August 30 2018, 0 Comments

If you suffer from severe acne, then you may have heard about Accutane, a medication that is primarily used to treat acne. Accutane is an Extremely High Dose of Vitamin A and reduces the amount of oil that our skin glands release, helping skin renew itself a bit more quickly.

While it may be beneficial in treating cases of acne, it can also cause several negative health effects. For example, if you are pregnant, Accutane can cause severe and life-threatening congenital disabilities.

You also shouldn’t take any other vitamin supplements while using Accutane if they contain vitamin A.  You also are not able to donate blood for at least thirty days after you stop using the medication.

Maybe it is time to ditch the Accutane for a more natural skincare routine?

Adopting a more natural routine offers a much safer and even less expensive alternative to the Accutane medication. Let's take a look at natural ingredients and a more holistic approach: 

Cold Pressed Aloe Leaf Juice

Cold Pressed Aloe Leaf Juice is the ultimate calming, clean and anti-inflammatory ingredient that will help you achieve the clear skin you are looking for. contains more vitamins and minerals in this cold pressed process. This super-food calms, cools, heals damaged and inflamed skin instantly. Drink it daily for overall health and well-being. Find Aloe Vera in all of our products excluding our Be Clean Elixir.

Organic Cold Pressed Grape Seed Oil

Grapeseed oil is a good source of Vitamin E and can also work as a fat-soluble antioxidant which helps protect your body’s cells from damaging free radicals. Adding grapeseed oil into your daily skincare routine can also help treat acne and act as a moisturizer to help balance dry and oily patches on your skin.

Raw Cacao

Raw Cacao contains one of the biggest antioxidants and can help protect your skin from oxidation and aging. The high levels of this antioxidant can also help repair skin damage; it is full of Vitamins A, C, and E which are all nutrient rich and essential to maintaining healthy skin.

Cacao also contains chromium that can help balance blood glucose levels and healthy fats to help balance oil production which ultimately helps with any acne breakouts you may experience.

Sandalwood Oil

Sandalwood oil is highly regarded when it comes to a more natural skincare routine and can help tone the skin, relieve itching and inflammation, and can help hydrate and brighten. This oil is often found in skin care soaps, lotions, and creams. Find Sandalwood in Be Calm - Brightening C Serum.

It can effectively protect your skin and create a very soothing and calming effect.  In addition Sandalwood can produce long-lasting results when used regularly in your natural skincare routine.

Radish Root filment that I add to every product in our line helps to calm redness, kill bacteria and boost the skin’s immune system to fight off future bacteria. The ultimate healing ingredient from the inside out.

As you can see, there are several benefits when it comes to choosing a more natural approach to your skin health and wellness. Before you ask your doctor about an Accutane prescription for you or your teen, see what a more natural approach can do for your skin.

Achieving clean, clear, healthy skin the natural way can take some adjustments and time but I can assure you that you do not have to rely on harsh chemicals or Accutane to keep your skin free of break outs.

Your skin will instantly feel clean with my loving heartfelt Just Add Sugar Soap Bar, feel more balanced with my Be Clean - Detoxifying Toner, more calm and clean with a few daily drops of my Be Clean - Detoxifying Elixir, as well as giving you a layer of hydration that will never clog your pores. Finally, kill bacteria and prevent future breakouts with our miracle Just Add Sugar - Cacao Herbal Infusion Masque. Finally, our most anti-inflammatory product that will help you achieve the clear skin you deserve is Be Calm Vitamin C Serum.

All of these products are a part of my 4 piece Anti Acne Kit, the results speak for themselves:

“I've struggled with problem skin since my early 20s. I'm 38 now-- and to say that my skin has been a battle is an understatement. I've been using Jenette’s 4 Piece Acne Kit for just over two months now and I'm pleasantly surprised by the results. My skin is clear, smooth, and much healthier than it has been in a long time. The Detoxifying Toner is the absolute best! I highly recommend these products for anyone struggling with frequent breakouts.” Travis

 

“I tried every product under the sun for my acne, but they would dry my skin out and cause my eczema to flair. But being on Jenette’s acne skin care line for a few weeks changed and improved my skin dramatically! It is all organic and no harsh chemicals to irritate my very sensitive skin. I will always be grateful for discovering these products!!! Highly recommend it to anyone with intense or even mild acne... or even maintaining beautiful skin!!!!” Nicholas

 

“I have been struggling with acne for years and this kit has worked wonders for my skin. Previous treatments from the dermatologist would not only dry out my skin but were also ineffective. Jenette’s products nourish and clean my skin while maintaining moisture and a natural glow. My skin has looked better and better as the days go by and I no longer have regular breakouts. I continue to notice amazing results and have only been using these products for a short time. Highly recommend!” Alexis
