Skincare In A Flash….Sebum

A post to provide you information in a quickly absorbed manner. Kind of like flashcards for skincare.

Sebum……

What is it? In very (very) simple terms… it’s an oil produced by our sebaceous glands.

What does it do? In simple terms it helps protect our skin and hair from drying out. It also has a “waterproof” quality to it.

Under and Over…. 

If there is not enough sebum being produced in your body.. the skin will be dry.

If there is too much sebum production … this results in what we’d call “oily skin”.

Sebum is produced by the Sebaceous glands...

Skincare In A Flash…. Chilled Eye Cream

This week’s Skincare In A Flash… is a quick reminder about your Eye + Lip Eraser and helping with allergy relief.

In addition to all of the wonderful benefits of reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.. Apriori’s Eye Cream also helps reduce under eye puffiness that you might experience with seasonal allergies. Your eyes might be swollen from either rubbing them or all of the beautiful blooms cranking out pollen- whatever the cause might be make sure to keep on using your Eye Cream.

And as an extra treat… you can put it in the Fridge.. chill it… and then apply. The cooling sensation is a wonderful way to pamper your peepers. You’re getting the benefits of the amazing anti-puff ingredients at a soothing temperature.  Win-Win!

Skincare In A Flash….. It’s not your Typical Toner….

This week’s Skincare In A Flash is all about Apriori’s Activating Tonic… which is not anything like your typical toner. 

What is it:  The Activating Tonic is a cooling “splash” that is used after you have cleansed your face.

Benefits: It removes the last traces of impurities and has antiseptic, astringent and anti-inflammatory properties. It also protects your skin’s natural acid mantle (See: Acid Mantle )

Toner vs Activating Tonic: Your typical toner is designed to close pores (to reduce their appearance), the Activating Tonic on the other hand is specifically designed to open your pores so they can readily absorb the ingredients of the next product used (like your Day Defense Moisturizer or Precision Skin Rejuvenator).

Other cool info: 

  • It contains a mushroom extract which helps your skin absorb and hold on to moisture.
  • Since it helps your skin absorb more of your moisturizers and serums …. you can effectively use less of those products and still have optimal results (which means you’re saving moola by not using an excessive amount of the product each day)

Check out the FAQ section on the product page for additional information

Skincare in a Flash….Nurdles

A post to provide you information in a quickly absorbed manner. Kind of like flashcards for skincare.

This week it’s all about the Nurdles, baby! They’re probably something you’ve never heard of but may have used on many occasions!

What are they: “Nurdles are the tiny bits of plastic that are melted down and used in the production of plastic bags, bubble wrap, packaging and wrapping material. They can be responsible for the sickness and death of fish and birds when they are mistaken for food” – EPA.gov 

What does this have to do with skincare: Nurdles are also found in beauty products (face scrubs, body washes) and usually come with the unassuming, non-threatening title of “gentle microbeads”.

Coming Attraction: Look for next week’s post featuring a special guest who knows first hand why Nurdles should be making a mass exodus from your skincare regiment.

Nurdle-Free Alternatives by Apriori Beauty: Celloxylin® Cellular Age Advantage Body Cleanse & Lotion & the Enzyme Activated Micro Scrub

 

** If you’re interested in going Nurdle free in TwentyThirteen and want to order these products… please make sure to sign up by registering Here!

This will ensure you get direct access to Apriori Beauty’s product line and excellent customer service.

Skincare In A Flash……… DFI Functions

A post to provide you information in a quickly absorbed manner. Kind of like flashcards for skincare.

This is a quick post taken from the Apriori website regarding the two functions of the Derma Firm Illuminator.

The Derma Firm Illuminator utilizes four advanced anti-aging technologies — Ultrasound Wave, Galvanic Ion, Far Infrared Light, and Micro Massage — to visibly improve skin’s appearance.

During the Spot treatment cycles, galvanic ion and ultrasound wave therapy help stimulate cleansing and healthy skin cell turnover to help reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation, age spots, and blemishes. You will experience a gentle vibration and feel a warming of the skin

During the Wrinkle treatment cycles, far infrared light and micro massage work to address fine lines and wrinkles by promoting collagen and elastin synthesis, increasing cellular metabolism, and improving muscle tone. You will feel a more intense vibration from the micro massage, and the far infrared light will come on half way through each of the 3 cycles.”  (Source: Apriori Beauty Science Center Article Archive, April 2012)

Skincare In A Flash……..Peptides

A post to provide you information in a quickly absorbed manner. Kind of like flashcards for skincare.

This week’s flashcard is for Peptides

What are they? Short sequences of amino acids linked together by peptide bonds. (Holy scientific terminology, Batman!)

In layman’s terms, please: They’re essentially naturally occurring chemical messengers that tell the skin to conduct various functions.

Why should I care? In regards to skincare; different peptides can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and improve the production of collagen.

Give me an example: Acetyl Octapeptide-3  & Avena Sativa (Oat) Peptide    (Avena Sativa… that’s a pretty name for a pretty ingredient!)

Where can I find them? You can find peptides in a number of Apriori’s skincare products including the Day Defense Plus, Night Repair 3-Deep and Firming Complex

 

 

You can find Peptides in Apriori's Firming Complex - a beautiful serum to have in your skincare routine.
