Our Skin Care Tips

Understanding Inflammation: The Root Cause of Aging Skin Cells October 16 2018, 0 Comments

In our last blogpost we talked about the root of all skincare challenges, i.e. inflammation. Inflammation causes aging and free radical damage. 

What is inflammation?

Inflammation is a signal to the body to begin healing any trauma or damage. Without this process infections or wounds would not heal, so far so good. However, when our skin becomes chronically inflamed, the process becomes destructive, and your skin starts showing the signs of aging, i.e. dullness, age spots, lines and wrinkles.

There are many ways to fight (chronic) inflammation of the skin and using the right skincare products are a great place to start. Taking a closer look at what you put in your body is the next step.

Food and drinks that may cause inflammation

Eating too many inflammatory foods may cause chronic low-grade inflammation.

While most of us know it’s a good idea to avoid having too much caffeine, alcohol, sugar and dairy, there are also some vegetables that can cause inflammation. 

The veggies we are referring to are part of the nightshade family. Nightshade vegetables belong to the family of plants with the Latin name Solanaceae, they grow at night under the shadows of the moon.

The most commonly consumed nightshade vegetables:

  • Eggplants: Also known as aubergines.
  • Peppers: Including sweet, bell, chili and others.
  • Potatoes: All varieties except sweet potatoes and yams.
  • Tobacco: Typically dried and smoked in several forms.
  • Tomatillos: A green, tomato-like veggie common in Mexican cuisine.
  • Tomatoes: All varieties and tomato products.

While research shows we can eat these foods just fine without immediately causing inflammation it’s important to note that you do NOT want to eat one or all of these in excess.  Keeping an eye on your intake will help your body heal excess inflammation and you can still benefit from the abundance of nutrients these nightshade vegetables contain.   

Please try and limit the intake of sugar, gluten, fried foods, corn, soy, blackened or overcooked foods, soda water/drinks, too much citrus. 

Adding herbs to your diet to fight excess inflammation:

Before venturing into herbs, Jenette recommends adding green tea, zinc, aloe vera, probiotics (fermented food), broccoli, olive oil, blueberries, kelp (chlorophyll), pineapple and papaya to your diet. All of these have been proven to have a positive effect on balancing your immune system.

Devil’s Claw, also known as Harpagophytum procumbens:  this herb comes from South Africa and is related to sesame plants. Some research has shown it may have anti-inflammatory properties. Various brands are available to purchase online.

Ginger: This has been used for hundreds of years to treat dyspepsia, constipation, colic, and other gastrointestinal problems, as well as rheumatoid arthritis pain. Ginger may be purchased raw at grocery stores or  online in supplement form.

Turmeric: Current research is looking into the possible beneficial effects of turmeric in treating arthritis, Alzheimer's disease, and some other inflammatory conditions. Curcumin, a substance found in turmeric, is being invested for the treatment of several illnesses and disorders, including inflammation. Supplements with turmeric and curcumin are available.

Cannabis: This contains a cannabinoid called cannabichromene, which has been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties, along with many other health benefits.

Jenette recommends doing your own research on this.  She personally supports PrimeMyBody’s NanoEnhanced Hemp Oil.  

Note: Discuss any possible use of herbal supplements with your doctor. Source.

Other supplements to consider are Rutin, Bioflavinoids and Yucca root.

In conclusion, we are all about raising awareness around healthy skin and healthy living and hope to educate our readers on what you can do to get your best skin and live your best life!

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 

25% OFF my 4 Piece Acne Kit!

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.

Best Natural Sunscreen – Jenette’s Picks July 23 2018, 0 Comments

Jenette recommends we all wear sunscreen year round, yes, 12 months out of the entire year!!  However, now is the time when we do receive more questions as the summer and heat amps up!

Let’s take a look at Jenette’s favorite natural sunscreen brands in order of preference and least amounts of ingredients.  All of these products have been vetted personally by Jenette and adhere to her standards skincare/sunscreen. We’ve listed the products in order of 'cleanliness'.

  1. Jane Iredale – Jane launched her brand over 20 years ago and was one of the first cosmetics companies to add SPF to make-up. From Jane Iredale’s signature mineral make up to her tinted moisturizer, you will get at least 20 SPF with broad spectrum (UVA/UVB) sun protection. The unique Powder-Me SPF® Dry Sunscreen has a 30 protection, can be re-applied throughout the day and is water resistant up to 40 minutes! Super handy to carry around with you AND great for kids who do not like to wear creamy sun blocks.
  1. Epicuren - Zinc Oxide Perfecting Sunscreen SPF 27 - This antioxidant-rich sunscreen naturally protects your skin from UV-related damage, including premature aging and hyperpigmentation. With a 10% zinc this is our GO-TO sunscreen CREAM for those who are sensitive, oily or acneic.  It has no smell and does NOT leave you pasty white!
  1. Suntegrity - Tinted SPF 30 – This beautiful and very hydrating formula is loaded with clean, nutrient rich ingredients with a 20% zinc in it. There are an array of different colors that can best suit your skin tone.  Best results come from normal to dry skin types as this product is a 3 in 1!
  1. EMK – If you are in the market for a multi task moisturizer with SPF, GLOWIN™ 8-in-1 Tinted Cream is a great option.  It gives skin glowing natural color, helping to repair and inhibit aging from sun and environmental exposure and also acts as a great primer under any tint, powder or foundation.  You will love the real Vanilla Essential in here;)
  1. IMAGE SPF 30+. This daily moisturizer subtly evens out skin tone and gives the skin a gorgeous, healthy glow with the benefits of plant stem cells and SPF 30 sun protection. The formula is zinc-based, non-clogging, sheer and does not leave a white layer on your skin. It blends perfectly and creates a great base layer for your make-up.

It’s important to remember a few things when protecting your skin from harsh sun rays.

  1. Always apply 20 minutes before you leave your house and under your make-up. Let your sunscreen sit for a minute or two before you continue with a (mineral) foundation.
  2. Re-apply! Aim to re-apply at least two or three times throughout your day.Dermatologist recommend every 2 hours between 10am-4pm!!
  3. Make it easy on yourself by using a powder such as Jane Iredale’s Powder Me SPF 30. (This product will not expire being left in a hot car!)
  4. Cleanse! After being out and about in the sun you should pay extra attention to cleansing your skin. Jenette suggests a double cleansing routine. Start with Be Clean Detoxifying Elixir- this will dissolve any product on your skin, follow with Just Add Sugar - Cacao Herbal Infusion Soap Bar. Rinse your face well and tone with Be Clean - Detoxifying Toner. Now that you have squeaky clean skin you can apply Be Calm - Brightening C Serum, this will instantly calm and repair the day’s damage, as well as brighten your skin. Finish with your favorite night time moisturizer.s

Natural Anti-Aging Ingredients And Products That Actually Work July 02 2018, 0 Comments

Keeping your skin looking good, healthy and vibrant can be challenging in the summer months, especially for mature skin. I’ve been in the business of natural skincare and effective anti-aging products for decades and my experience has allowed me to hone in on what my clients want, and what’s best for their skin.

Relying on all natural skincare for anti-aging purposes can be a leap for some of my new customers and I’d like to take some time and address some of the concerns you may have. 

First of all, creating all natural skincare products is a complex task. I spend a lot of time researching ingredients and finding clean, sustainable ingredients that actually work is even more of a challenge.  I gladly accept and embrace this challenge and have made it my life’s mission to provide you with anti-aging products that are proven to work.

5 Piece Anti-Aging Kit jenette all natural skincare

Finding the right mix of natural ingredients is crucial, they need to work together to ensure efficacy. Some plant based ingredients don’t play nice together and others complement each other. Combining ingredients such as Oil Soluble Vitamin C and Cold Pressed Aloe Leaf Juice has allowed me to create products such as my Be Calm Brightening C Serum, a power house serum that helps erase the damage of the day and gets your skin back to its healthy vibrant self within weeks.

The next step is for these ingredients to actually enter your dermis rather than just sitting on top. Using natural lipids ensures this natural goodness can do its job, which is why most of my products contain cold pressed organic oils. 

Lastly, we must make sure your products are fresh and alive when they get to you, this is where Leucidical liquid comes in. Not only does this all natural ingredient preserve the efficacy of the product it also prevents microbial contamination while feeding your skin with probiotics, preventing the inflammation process from killing your live cells. Praised for its anti-bacterial properties, recent studies have shown that it is also effective in killing cancer cells and preventing radiation damage from entering the dermis.

You will see that if these three concerns are addressed properly your skin will benefit. After using my anti-aging product line for about 2-3 weeks you will start noticing a true transformation. Your skin will start healing itself from the inside out and fine lines, age spots and wrinkles will start to decrease, leaving you with healthy, calm and vibrant skin. 

Because I want you all to be able to try my anti-aging line, we have created a special promotion for the month of July. Take 25% off my new and improved anti-aging kit and experience what all natural skincare can do for you!  (Total Savings of $183!)

 


What You Should Look For In Natural Skincare If You Have Sensitive Skin May 04 2018, 0 Comments

When switching to all natural skincare there are a few things to keep in mind.

If you have sensitive skin, you are likely already paying a lot of attention to labels and ingredients and you know a lot of what works and what doesn’t.  However, when it comes to natural skincare there are some specifics you need to be aware of in order to achieve the best results. 

You may be used to looking out for products that have the hypo-allergenic stamp but these can ultimately cause inflammation as they use ingredients that counter smell or use alcohols that dry you out too much.

After years of using unnatural products or beauty products that contain alcohol, sulfates and parabens in them, redness and bumps may begin to appear. This is your body's way of saying;  don't use these products anymore!!

Sensitive Skin Inflammation Causes

Natural skincare can be super helpful in combatting recurring sensitive skin problems such as breakouts and redness.  When you experience breakouts and redness you are most likely experiencing this because your skin is inflamed. There is an imbalance happening, and simply put, your skin is angry.  You may have used products with synthetic ingredients or alcohol in them before, and your skin will need to detox from these ingredients. 

Apart from inflammation leading to breakouts and redness, inflammation is also the leading cause of ageing.  If we don’t fight inflammation with calming ingredients and treatments, our cells continue to be damaged and killed, and we end up with more wrinkles and hyper pigmentation.  YIKES!  Who wants that?? 

To get your skin to calm down and find balance, look out for ingredients that are naturally calming such as Aloe Vera, Cold Pressed Oils and Probiotics. 

What to look for in natural skincare when you have sensitive skin 

When I speak with clients with sensitive skin they often think oils are not good for people with sensitive, acne prone skin, when in fact oils like jojoba, sunflower and grape seed mimic the skin’s natural oils/sebums and help balance your oil production. A much better approach than trying to dry out your skin with harsh synthetic skincare (link to article Rachael Pass)

Cold pressed oils are particularly helpful for sensitive skin, as they are untampered with (never in contact with high heat), clean and pure. They simply don’t allow for clogging and you will not get any build up that leads to breakouts. 

Calming, clean and anti-inflammatory ingredients to look out for: 

  • Aloe Vera
  • Cold pressed grape seed oil
  • Cold press rose hip seed oil
  • And my personal favorite, cold pressed pomegranate seed oil that I use in my Be Calm Brightening C Serum.
  • Probiotics
  • Pink Grapefruit extract
  • Cucumber
  • Rose Water
  • Distilled Water

 be calm vitamin c serum

Think of your skin as you would think about feeding yourself with healthy clean food. When you heat juices it kills nutrients hence you drink cold pressed juices that make you feel great!

Repair any damage and prevent future damage by making the switch to all natural skincare. I promise results without harmful chemicals and long-term damage.  The results speak for themselves.

 


What Is Your Natural Skincare Beauty Routine I: Rachael Pass April 27 2018, 0 Comments

We spoke with Rachael Pass the other day, loyal customer and skincare junkie. Rachael lives in Los Angeles with her husband and young son.

The beauty products that Rachael loves most are all natural skincare products from Jenette All Natural Skin Care.

On Meeting Jenette and Using Her Services and Products

To be honest I did not set out trying to find a specifically natural skincare line to be the answer to my skincare challenges, but once I met Jenette and got to know her story and her all natural skincare line, I was hooked. 

There is something pretty special about meeting Jenette, she is a very warm, highly intelligent human being that really knows her stuff. We connected on a personal level and I met her years ago but only recently started getting treatments at her spa again.

Going to see Jenette on a regular basis and using her skincare products has transformed my skin. Jenette is a true skin alchemist and she has created the perfect combination of products for every skin type.

What is your skin type?

I have classic combination skin with dry patches and oily patches, and since my late twenties a lot of break-outs.  Because I have oily skin with patches of dryness I tried to dry my skin out as much as I could but of course this backfired and I was left with exceedingly oily skin as my skin tried to compensate for the dryness.  Luckily Jenette set me on the right path. To keep my skin looking its best, Jenette suggested a specific routine I can follow between visits to her beautiful spa, Being In LA.

What’s Your Morning Skin Care Routine?

My routine starts in the morning by cleansing with a gentle cleanser, EltaMD Facial Cleanser, followed by applying Jenette’s Be Clean - Detoxifying Toner. I spritz this on gauze and then gently wipe my face.  Jenette suggested using gauze as it absorbs much less product than traditional cotton rounds.  If I have a breakout at the time, I will use her Be Clean - Detoxifying Toner on a gauze to press it onto the breakout, making it virtually disappear within a day or so. On my last visit Jenette shared with me that she will be launching a sensitive skin soap bar very soon, so I will be thrilled to be amongst the first to try this new soap.

When my face is dry I apply Jenette’s Be Calm - Brightening C Serum, this serum instantly calms and brightens my skin. This miracle serum also fights free radical damage throughout my day! 

Extra nourishment is added with her Potion No.1 - Age Defying Serum, this provides my skin with the ultimate daily protection and has really changed the way my skin feels throughout the day.  I live in Southern California so I always follow up with an SPF. I am currently using Image PREVENTION+ daily tinted moisturizer SPF 30+. This zinc based SPF provides a little tint and a lot of protection!  Jenette sells a lot of great zinc based sunscreens at Being in LA.

What’s Your Evening Skin Care Routine?

My evening routine starts the same way, I cleanse as I do in the morning unless I feel buildup or a breakout coming on, then I will take Jenette’s heart soap (The Just Add Sugar - Cacao Herbal Infusion Soap Bar), rub it on my face and really work it into my face with my fingers. This soap, which is almost more like a treatment, leaves my skin feeling squeaky clean. I will follow with her Be Clean - Detoxifying Toner and her Be Calm - Brightening C Serum. I then apply her Be Nourished Apple Stem Cell Moisturizer. This moisturizer is unique in that it feels super rich yet it is absorbed by my skin quickly and does not clog my pores.

On Her Weekly Masque Treatment

About once a week I will use Jenette’s amazing Just Add Sugar - Cacao Herbal Infusion Masque, which is truly unique in that it is a miracle herbal masque that actually works…it feels like a clay mask but better! After removal my skin feels both clean and super nourished, something I never experienced with other masques. Following this routine has really done wonders for my skin and has allowed me to maintain results in between facials even if I can’t keep up a regular facial routine.

Traveling with Jenette All Natural Skin Care products

When I travel I bring all of my products, although recently a single product has stood out to be especially beneficial during travel and that is Jenette’s Be Divine - Age Defying Toner. My girlfriends and I recently travelled to Las Vegas where there is so much air conditioning that your skin really starts to suffer. We misted ourselves with Be Divine throughout day, adding much needed moisture. Our skin felt great and our moods were even lifted.

Another travel essential for me is the Be Clean - Detoxifying Elixir. This elixir calms your skin and kills bacteria, super handy if you are trying to keep a semblance of clean skin while you travel or after you’ve used SPF on the beach all day.

Finally, What is Your Favorite Product of Jenette’s?

If I had to pick a favorite it would be her heart soap (Just Add Sugar – Cacao Herbal Infusion Soap Bar), that little soap is my best friend. On a recent trip to Mexico I gave it to my husband to use as he was getting a breakout on his forehead, this soap made the bumps disappear overnight!!

 


Our Promise To You; No Chemical Fillers, EVER. February 20 2018, 0 Comments

­There is a lot of talk about the use of fillers in skincare. While most skincare brands use some kind of chemical fillers, we guarantee no chemical fillers, ever!

What does that mean? It means that we do not use fillers such as Propylene or Butylene Glycols or any Parabens or Alcohol stabilizers!  

These types of glycols and parabens are proven to be toxic and carcinogenic, yet they are used in most over the counter skincare products. When you take a closer look at the ingredient labels of luxury skincare brands, you will notice the use of these prolific fillers. Even certain “so called natural or botanical” brands use them.

Why use them at all?

These chemical fillers are used as preservatives, keeping products moist and well-formed as time goes by.

However, these dangerous ingredients are known to cause skin irritations as well as show up in your blood after long term use. While they are cost effective for the creators of these brands, they are not effective as skincare ingredients, or safe for your long term health and well being!

In fact, they are toxic and if you are committed to leading a green and healthy lifestyle without affecting your endocrine system, we suggest you stay far away from ingredients like these chemical fillers.

What is the alternative?

What you should look out for when purchasing skincare is the use of fillers versus effective ingredients.

Between 85% - 90% off my product ingredients are actually doing something for your skin. Of course we also use preservatives but not chemical preservatives.

After years of research I found a probiotic preservative that is the result of a natural fermentation process. Not only does it keep my products moist and well-formed over time, it’s also an effective ingredient. Probiotics in skincare are popular right now, and for good reason! They keep your skin cells ALIVE and healthy from the outside in! 

Be vigilant when purchasing your skincare products, take a close look at the ingredients and Google the ones you do not recognize. As always, if you have any questions about natural skincare or the kinds of ingredients I use in my products, please reach out!

 


Why You Should Add Aloe Vera to Your Skincare Routine Today January 24 2018, 0 Comments

If you are motivated to use all natural skincare you probably know about the main toxic ingredients you want to avoid. These ingredients are used as fillers and stabilizers in many skincare products, even in products created by brands that use botanicals!

These ingredients are not as harmful as parabens, however, they are toxic and should be avoided. Filler ingredients are called PEGs (polyethylene glycol) and PPGs (polypropolene glycol). Other fillers are alcohol and unpurified water. Chemical fillers are less expensive but have no real nutritional value and offer no benefits to your skin’s health and your well-being.

be calm and happy all month long jenette all natural skin care

Instead of using these chemical skincare product fillers I use a sustainable Aloe Vera Gel as the base of most of my products. It is more expensive than chemical fillers or alcohols, but the benefits speak for themselves. Aloe Vera has been used for healing many skin concerns for ages; the Egyptians called Aloe Vera the “plant of immortality.”

While Aloe Vera is probably best known for its use against sunburns I know its benefits reach far beyond that.

Here are 5 benefits of using Aloe Vera in your skincare:

  1. It is instantly calming, Aloe Vera brings down heat and inflammation;
  2. It acts as a light weight, nourishing moisturizer, especially helpful in extreme temperatures. With Aloe you will always feel hydrated without feeling like you have something heavy or clogging on your skin;
  3. Anti-Acne; due to its anti-inflammatory properties it is perfect to use as an anti-acne treatment;
  4. Anti-Aging; Aloe Vera contains many antioxidants including: beta carotene, vitamin C and E that help improve the skin's natural firmness;
  5. Aloe Vera acts as a carrier that assists other ingredients in our skincare to penetrate more effectively into your skin.

Why is it so important to add Aloe Vera to your skincare routine?  

Apart from these long term benefits, Aloe Vera is non clogging and obviously non-toxic. This magic ingredient can do wonders for your skin!!  If there is one thing you should add more of to your skincare routine today, it’s products that contains ample volumes of Aloe. 

I use Aloe Vera in almost all of my products, from my moisturizers and serums to my cleansers and masques!

The Benefits Of Probiotics In Skincare January 12 2018, 0 Comments

Jenette Serrins, founder of Jenette All Natural Skincare talks about probiotics and why they are so many benefits of using probiotics in skincare.

Why do you use probiotics in your line?

I create all natural skincare products that promote clean, clear and radiant skin. In order for my products to work best I needed to find a preservative that was sustainable and all natural. While researching this, I read many medical journals and studies and stumbled upon a particular preservative that allows my products to live longer. 

This unique ingredient naturally preserves my products and prevents microbial contamination. This lactobicillai is praised for its anti-bacterial properties and protects the skin from future breakouts. Furthermore, recent studies have shown that it is also effective in preventing cancer cells and radiation damage from entering the dermis. (Learn more at: www.activemicrotechnology.com )

Probiotics in Jenette All Natural Skincare

I first began using it in my Just Add Sugar Cacao Masque and it was wonderful as it allowed my masque to live longer and have more impact on the skin. Seeing these first results, I conducted further research about these special probiotics and started using them in more of my products until I used them them in all my products, except for my Just Add Sugar - Cacao Herbal Infusion Soap Bar and my Be Clean - Detoxifying Toner. These products preserve very well on their own! 

You will never find chemical preservatives such as Propylene glycol or Parabens in Jenette All Natural Skincare. We avoid all of these types of ingredients, whatever it takes. Studies have shown that these chemicals do not completely leave your system, and this could even be the leading cause of cancer for women. Our bodies act like a sponge and if your liver and kidneys are not able to filter these ingredients, what is happening to them?

Using probiotics in skincare has now become more mainstream, its properties boost your skin’s immune system which is great for anti-acne purposes, it will keep your skin alive and clear and gets you that glow you are after!

My all natural skincare is a preventative line and probiotics add wonderful anti-aging properties to two of my flagship products:

Potion No.1 - Age Defying Serum, a natural anti-depressant due to its smell. Loaded in nutrient rich probiotics and extracts, your skin is instantly toned, lifted and calm all day long.  No more irritated, bumpy, red skin with regular use of this miracle serum; with notes of pink grapefruit.

Potion No.2 - Age Defying Serum, this divine rose geranium anti-aging formula will provide instant nourishment for even the most sluggish of skin types.  Acts as 75% probiotics due to it's unique combination and blend of cold pressed oils. Your skin takes on new life, providing natural Retinol boosters and cucumber witch hazel to bring even more lifting and balance.  Your instant glow in a bottle!

Probiotics and Anti-Aging:

You will be seeing a lot of mainstream brands moving in this direction as they learn how powerful and healing these ingredients are, however, be a conscious consumer and study the other ingredients attached!!

If you find a product that uses these amazing natural probiotics, please make sure they are not filled with glycols, alcohol and parabens, effectively cancelling out the healing benefits of what the probiotics can do for your skin.

 


My commitment to you: Few ingredients, No Fillers, High Performing All Natural Skin Care. October 15 2017, 0 Comments

Creating all natural skin care products with integrity is my no 1 priority for Jenette All Natural Skin Care. It has taken me years to ensure my products deliver remarkable results with integrity.  Both myself and my customers are critical when it comes to ingredients and so  should we!  

You will never find any toxic ingredients, parabens or synthetics in any of the products in my line. My products are all cruelty free, sulfate free, paraben free, gluten free, petroleum free and PEG free.

Instead, I select only the highest quality and medically researched performing natural ingredients. It takes time, sometimes months, as I take a close look at my suppliers to make sure they share my beliefs in natural, clean and ethical growing. 

As this months’ promotion is centered around the Just Add SugaCacao Masque, let’s take a closer look at this product

The ingredients in this masque are truly exceptional and took me years to find, source and combine in just the right way.  The ingredients include a unique blend of Chinese and Korean herbs, these herbs detoxify and rejuvenate your skin. They are anti-bacterial, anti-aging and revitalizing. With regular use, you can alleviate acne and prevent future breakouts. If you do have these concerns, I suggest using the Masque 2-3 times per week.  The added organic cold pressed Aloe Vera and cold pressed Coconut Oil add nourishment that will leave your skin smooth and perfected. 

This is what Barbara (long time customer) has to say about Just Add Sugar – Cacao Herbal Infusion Masque, her favorite product:

“This masque combines the unique feeling of a clay mask when it dries, yet when you remove it, your skin feels clean and nourished, almost so nourished I don’t feel the need to add a moisturizer. This is truly unique, I have never found a masque that brings these two qualities together. It’s especially appealing to me as a woman in her forties who’s focused on products that provide nourishment, cleanliness and have anti-aging properties.”  

With consistent use of my products you will have the healthiest, brightest and smoothest skin of your life!

PS, did you know this face mask doubles as a whole body scrub if you ‘Just Add Sugar’?


Back To Basics With My Just Add Sugar - Cacao Herbal Infusion Masque October 03 2017, 0 Comments

I’ve been sharing with you my expertise on how to take your skin to the next level, talking mostly about nourishing, moisturizing, calming and plumping your skin.

Today I want to take a step back and focus on cleansing your skin. In order for my serums, Potion No.1 and Potion No. 2 and the Be Calm - Brightening C Serum to really work at their highest level your skin needs to be clean!

I created my skincare line because I was diagnosed with severe hormonal imbalances. Jenette All Natural Skin Care was born out of necessity and a longing for beauty products with integrity. I couldn’t find the products I wanted to use and I really needed to pay attention to what was going in and on my body and skin.

For me, this really is about defining beauty from the inside out and creating products that will leave your skin clean and healthy without leaving you with hormonal imbalances or other reactions to putting harmful chemicals in and on your body.

The first step in getting clean skin is my Just Add Sugar - Cacao Herbal Infusion Soap Bar. With regular use of this detoxifying soap your skin will be super clean, without any buildup, creating a base for my serums to really do their job.  The soap has many of the ingredients that I found so effective in my Cacao Miracle Masque, which for years my clients were begging for more of.

I created the soap after I created my Just Add Sugar - Cacao Herbal Infusion Masque. This is one of my flag ship products. It took me years to create but the results are so worth it. This weekly treatment works on a wide range of issues. Whether you have acne or dull and aging skin, using this all natural face masque gives you a deep cleanse and allows your skin to feel and look alive and hydrated. 

With ingredients such as a proprietary blend of Chinese and Korean Herbs and Raw Organic Cacao, it is sometimes hard to explain just how fabulous this masque is so let’s take a look at what my clients have to say:

‘This product feels good, smells good and leaves your skin feeling great! I use it every Sunday as part of my routine and my son has started using it because he likes how it feels too! It's great for the entire family! “– Hillary

“I use this once a week and it makes all the difference with age spots, wrinkles and dullness. It's like getting a weekly facial. I adore.” – Wesley 

“This mask is truly amazing. It firms your skin while clearing any breakouts and leaves your skin so soft and smooth. As a bonus it smells so good. I use it once a week and absolutely love it!” - Ashley

Other ingredients include Organic Cold Pressed Aloe Vera, Organic Cold Pressed Coconut Oil, Probiotics, Meadow Foam Seed Oil and Grapefruit Seed Extract.

This masque instantly rids your skin of pollution and bacteria. When it begins to dry, I know its tightening and lifting my skin, preventing wrinkles from setting in and after 15-20 minutes it’s ready to remove. I’m left with clean, soft and hydrated skin.

5 Benefits of Adding a Serum to Your Skincare Routine September 25 2017, 0 Comments

Adding a serum to your skincare routine is crucial to healthier skin and can make a big difference, especially if you are trying to combat acne and/or keep your skin bright and plump, and that’s basically everyone!

I am dedicated to giving you the best skin of your life and have put years of research into finding the right ingredients for my serums.  My serums offer the ultimate protection against environmental pollution, as well as providing your skin with instant nourishment. 

5 Benefits of Adding a Serum to Your Skincare Routine

  1. They give results; I created my Potion No.1 and Potion No. 2 Age Defying Serums with all natural, high quality ingredients that make up 75% of the actual product, there are no by-product ingredients (synthetic preservatives) or fillers. This creates a product that gives you long lasting results!
  2. Fewer breakouts; With daily use of my serums you will have fewer or no breakouts. "I haven't had one breakout since starting Jenette All Natural Skin Care 6 weeks ago, only small bumps that go away quickly.” This is especially true for Potion No. 1 that reduces redness, bumps and instantly clams your skin. 
  3. Eliminate dry skin; Omega fatty acids naturally occur in these serums, they act as a plumping retinol... you will never go dry again!
  4. You will save money; Because my potions are multifunctional, i.e. they lift, tone, protect and hydrate your skin, you will need (to use) less product
  5. Mood enhancing; Both serums smell amazing and have mood enhancing qualities that go beyond skincare. “Potion No. 2 is amazing! My normally dry skin is never dry now. And the smell is intoxicating. I can't live without it!” Potion No. 1 functions as a natural pick me and anti-depressant and Potion No. 2 is calming and hormonally balancing. 

My clients refer to these serums as a miracle in a bottle and I know you will feel the same way after using them! Get 25% off your first order and free shipping to the US and Canada through the end of September!

Look As Beautiful On The Outside As You Are On The Inside With Jenette All Natural Skincare 

You spend a lot of time carefully selecting the nutritional food you eat, ensuring you only use natural products around your home, and living a clean, healthy lifestyle. As a conscientious consumer, you understand how important it is to reduce your exposure to toxins, so why should you compromise your values when it comes to your beauty products?

I am dedicated to providing you with safe and effective skin care products. All of my products are made from organic, sustainably sourced ingredients and produced in small, homemade batches to ensure the highest quality. Like you, I believe that health and well-being are products of living naturally, and I have dedicated my life to providing conscious skincare products.

What Makes Jenette All Natural Skin Care Different?

The skincare products found at most drugstores and makeup counters are often made with unhealthy chemical ingredients. Ingredients like sulfates, parabens, synthetic colors and fragrances, and phthalates have been shown to damage the environment and can put your health at risk with long term exposure. None of my products at Jenette All Natural Skincare contain any of these synthetic ingredients. Instead, I only use natural extracts and oils from plants and from everything living.

In my products you will find ingredients like: 

  • Leucidal liquid, a probiotic from the fermentation of radish root
  • Chinese and Korean herbs that detox from the inside out
  • Apple stem cells
  • Cold-pressed aloe juice, pomegranate seed oil, grape seed oil and coconut oil
  • Basil, eucalyptus, litsea, clove and rosemary extracts
  • Flowers like calendula, geranium and lavender

All of the ingredients I use are not chemically-altered and provide a range of health and beauty benefits. I also package all of my products in glass to maintain the integrity of the ingredients and avoid chemical agents leaching in from plastics. 

What Jenette All Natural Skin Care Can Do For You

 Our broad range of skincare products cover any personal needs, across all skintypes: 

  • Anti-aging benefits, plumping, firming and lifting
  • Have anti-inflammatory properties
  • Fight acne and blemishes
  • Exfoliate and soften skin
  • Detoxifying qualities
  • Create balance

When you use Jenette All Natural Skincare you will see immediate results. Your skin will be healthy, soft, and have a youthful glow. 

Finding The Right Organic Skin Care Product For Your Needs

I know that skincare management is not a one size fits all model. Every individual is unique and what meets the skincare needs of one person, is not going to work for everyone. That is why I developed a diverse range of products to target everyone’s unique skin. In my product line, you will find a range of natural and effective anti-acne and anti-aging skin care products. Here is a list of my premier products and a brief overview of how they will work for you:

Just Add Sugar - Cacao Herbal Infusion Masque: Made with the power of raw cacao, and Chinese and Korean herbs, this detoxifying masque works to clear pores, clean skin, lift and hydrate. The masque can be used on your face or over your whole body for soft, glowing skin.  This miracle worker was hand picked by People Magazine as a great mask to detox your skin without drying it out. 

Just Add Sugar - Cacao Herbal Infusion Soap Bar: Using the same powerful ingredients as our masque, the soap bar offers an easy daily cleansing solution. Used on blemishes, rough skin, and age spots, you will see a noticeable difference as your skin brightens and tones.

No. 1 Age Defying Serum: Made with probiotics, this serum fights against the free radical damage your skin endures every day. Applied daily you’ll find that your skin immediately looks younger and brighter.

No. 2 Age Defying Serum: Containing nourishing retinol boosters, this daily serum does all of the above, as well as helps firm your skin for happier, healthier, and younger you.  

Be Happy Brightening Toner: Created to maintain your skin’s natural pH balance, this toner will keep your skin looking happy and healthy. The antibacterial properties remove dirt and help to unclog pores, while natural oils hydrate and moisturize thirsty skin.

Be Clean-Detoxifying Elixir: Our elixir is a favorite product among our customers because of its calming yet acne-fighting power. This elixir instantly cleans skin, reduces puffiness, swelling and inflammation, and keeps your skin clear and free of blemishes. This little bottle is carried by many of my mom friends for on the spot treatment, this elixir is great to calm nerves and treat dry skin. 

Be Clean-Detoxifying Toner: With serious herbal power, this toner works to not only help your skin fight against dirt and bacteria build up, it also helps support your immune system from the outside in. With a few sprays a day, you will not only see healthy, cleaner skin but you will feel healthier and more energized.

Be Calm-Brightening C Serum: Oil Soluble Medical Grade Vitamin C is the most powerful antioxidant and is safe for even the most sensitive, delicate skin types. Our brightening serum fights against the sun and environmental damage to help you have bright and healthy skin.

Be Nourished-Apple Stem Cell Moisturizer: The ultimate key to youthful skin is to nourish it with powerful moisturizers. Our formula not only fights the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles but helps boost skin cell production renewing your skin.

If you still aren’t sure which products are best for you, I also offer two targeted kits, one for anti-aging and balance and one for anti-acne so you can try the perfect products of our natural skincare line. 

Wellness As Skincare

It's time to start thinking about your fall natural skincare regimen September 07 2017, 0 Comments

The way we feel on the inside is often influenced by the way we look on the outside.  While most of us love to spend quality time outdoors over the summer months, it may not be the greatest thing for your skin. Using chemical SPF, perspiration, the sun’s rays; these can all wreak havoc on your skin.

Getting back on track.

My skincare line is created with your best skin in mind and will help you get your skin back on track after the summer. Your fall skincare regimen should include a weekly deep cleansing routine and possibly adding an extra layer of protection for those colder days ahead.

What does this look like practically? A good place to start would be with my Just Add Sugar - Cacao Herb Infused Masque. I love this product for its ability to give you a deep cleanse at home! The masque is perfect for all skin types, including acne prone skin. Use this all natural, delicious smelling masque weekly to deep cleanse your skin, as well as brighten, lift and tone! 

This is what 2 of my customers have to say about this miracle worker: 

“I use this once a week as a mask to exfoliate my face, and it's all I need, beyond my daily skin care routine. I love the smell, and I love how fresh and rosy and soft my skin is after using it. Jenette is a magician!”

“It will make you mad at other masks you've bought, that's how good this thing is. If you're not a mask person, become one.”

Adding an extra layer of protection.

If you use my Potions, I usually tell my clients to use Potion No. 1 during the summer months and Potion No. 2 during the fall and winter months. Potion 2 is just a bit more nourishing and will give your skin that extra layer of protection during the colder months, also acting as a natural retinol to plump, firm and tighten your skin.

Loaded with Organic Rose Hip Seed Oil and Organic Rose Geranium Extract this anti-aging formula provides instant healing and will invigorate even the most sluggish of skin types.  The added probiotics, along with my unique blend of oils will help your skin take on new life!  Your instant glow in a bottle! 

Get your healthiest skin in days.

Beginning your new fall natural skincare regimen can be easy and fun with this weekly deep cleanse and adding a nourishing, all natural skincare serum to your daily routine, will ensure your way to healthier, more vibrant skin! 

If you have any questions about these products, please reach out to me via my contact page or my social media channels! Be sure to follow me on Instagram, I share many tips and tricks here, and you will keep abreast of all my monthly specials and promos.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Skin Guru July 19 2017, 0 Comments

My journey began years ago when I could not find PURE, RESULTS oriented product. I saw a need for acne remedies and natural anti-aging skin care products that truly worked without harsh chemicals and toxic ingredients, a natural alternative to traditional acne treatment and aging remedies. I just couldn’t find products that were as pure and effective as I needed them to be for my clients and myself. Which lead me on the path to creating my own products. 

The lab is in house and I personally oversee every step of the process. My products go more than skin deep: the aroma-therapy uplifts the mind and spirit, serving as a natural antidepressant from the inside out. I am constantly researching new ingredient technology for products that can deliver powerful results. Each of my products are free from animal testing, parabens, sulfates, silicone, gluten, petroleum, PEGs, harmful preservatives and artificial colors. They won't clog pores and are suitable for all skin types. Better yet, your skin cannot collect bacteria with these magical ingredients! Wherever possible, Jenette All Natural Skin Care™ is also committed to organic ingredients and sustainable, environmentally friendly packaging. 

The result, Jenette All Natural Skin Care™, provides my clients with safe and natural solutions to their most primary skin concerns. My products are a culmination of years of development and testing - on myself and my clients - to ensure they deliver remarkable results with integrity. Every one of our skin care products is specially formulated to be applied at home, giving you an aromatherapeutic experience every single day. 


Lavender And My New Be Nourished Apple Stem Cell Moisturizer July 17 2017, 0 Comments

My products are known to work more than just skin deep, the aromatherapy in my all natural skin care products uplifts your spirit as well as your skin! As I am researching new ingredient technology and am committed to finding sustainable and when possible organic ingredients I am particularly thrilled to share a recent trip with you.

 

I travelled to Covelo, a small town in Mendocino County, northern California. This area has been designated as an American Viticultural Area (AVA) by the state department based purely on the unique climate conditions of the area. While I love to enjoy a glass of wine on occasion this was not the reason for our trip. We travel to relax and enjoy each other’s company and sometimes we are lucky enough to do some work that doesn’t feel like work.

jenette harvest lavender

My friend Lauren owns a lavender farm in this beautiful area of the Golden State and she lets me help with the yearly harvest. The wonderfully fragrant and healing properties of Lavender are well known to most.  Lavender reduces anxiety and stress, restores skin’s complexion and reduces acne. Lavender slows aging with powerful antioxidants, it heals burns, improves eczema and psoriasis, and can help diminish headaches.

I use Lavender in my new Be Nourished Apple Stem Cell Moisturizer. This wonderful moisturizer is launching on August 1st and will leave you feeling super nourished. More about this amazing new product very soon!

This serum also offsets premature aging, pigmentation, improves skin texture, and will help you reduce wrinkles and heal sun damage.

Some of our other products include a 4 Piece Acne Kit, an all natural acne remedy you do yourself, at home or on the road. We also offer the Just Add Sugar - Cacao Herbal Infusion Masque and Soap Bar. The masque is the ultimate game changer for all skin types. This weekly skin treatment hydrates your skin to remove your acne or give dull, aging skin a deep cleanse with the added bonus of a rosy glow! Our miracle masque is now available in a bar of soap that gently kills bacteria, tones skin and prevents acne without drying your skin. With my proprietary blend of Chinese and Korean Herbs hand made alongside organic coconut oil, grape seed oil, aloe vera and raw organic cacao, your skin will receive the deep pore cleanse it requires every day to be free of acne.
