Getting Skin Back to School Ready

Hold Onto Your Summer Glow

The end of August traditionally leaves us longing to hold onto the healthy glow that we have cultivated all season long. Do not pine away as your tan fades, give it a little boost with Institut Esthederm Sun Sheen Light Self-tanning Face Cream and Sun Sheen Light Self-tanning Body Lotion. These products can be used 3-4 times per week to stretch the life of your tan. They never turn orange or streaky and layer gradually to produce natural results. Your skin can stay party-ready all year round.

And Now…Back to School

Now that we have addressed the fears surrounding the possible disappearance of your seasonal lustre, let’s focus on getting the kids ship shape for September. Around this time of year, many of my clients bring in their children, as young as ages 12-21, for a back to school facial.

Some of the younger adolescence I see have been at sleepaway camp and may have returned with a bit of pre-teen breakouts, while most teenagers have post-summer skin irritation due to sun exposure.

Whether going back to school or off to university, it is a good time to start kids off with a simple custom regimen that will empower them to easily take care of their skin all year round.

Customize with Travel Beauty

What I find unique about Travel Beauty is that one can tailor his or her own regimen and create a custom kit of products. Travel Beauty’s Concierge Service is always on call and reachable by phone or email to help create a skin care routine that is perfect for you. You can call them at 888-717-8790 or email them at concierge@travelbeauty.com. Let them know your and your child’s skin type, and they will help you create an effective skin care practice that will deliver the best results.

Back To School Skin Care Regimen

In the meantime, here are some easy steps that are sure to work for ALL:

Step One: Cleanse

B. Kamins Laboratories makes a gentle Vegetable Cleanser that is specially formulated for sensitive skin. It is well suited for everyone and gently removes dead skin and impurities.

For those in their late teens who wear makeup and/or are willing to take an extra step, I also suggest a post cleansing toner. Lavido Hydrating Facial Toner is organic and gentle enough to use without fear of throwing off their pH balance.

Step Two: Moisturize

B. Kamins Laboratories makes a wonderful BB Cream which contains a light moisturizer, vitamins and a hint of color and sparkle. Teens and tweens seem to be wearing makeup younger and younger these days and this will give them the glow they need for every day.

Another good moisturizing alternative is Alchimie Forever Daily Defense Cream SPF 23. All natural, dermatologist-tested and vegan, this moisturizer is gentle and has a light SPF, which is beneficial all year long.

For young men that are about to start shaving or are already doing so, Elemis S.O.S. Survival Cream is an ideal moisturizer and/or aftershave. It fights razor burn and irritation like a charm.

Step Three: At Home Mini Facial

For those that will take the extra step, applying a mask once a week will do wonders. It is akin to an at home mini facial that will keep their skin clear all year long:

•   Elemis Herbal Lavender Repair Mask: For normal to oily skin. Great for healing blemishes and clearing up breakouts.

•   Juvena Specialist Moisture Plus Gel Mask: A rehydrating mask for sensitive, dry or reactive skin.

Some Useful Extras

For teens that find themselves with blemishes, B. Kamins Laboratories Blemish Gel 5% is the perfect spot treatment to dab on to affected areas. It delivers the right amount of medicine in a lower dose than other over the counter treatments and will not irritate or overdry skin.

B. Kamins SPF 20 Lip Balm is a no brainer. With the change of season and school stress, everyone can use a new lip balm to kick off the school year with a stunning smile!

All of these products will take you and your teens through fall and into winter.

Premium Shaving Products for Men

We hope you thoroughly spoiled mom with lots of lavish gifts on Mother’s Day. Now it’s time to turn our attention to the men in our lives. Put down the tie and boxers and get dad something he really needs.

Though beards have become a bit of a thing in the past few years, shaving will never go out of style…and neither will quality shaving products. Finding the perfect combination of shaving essentials that best suits a specific skin type can be tricky, and many men can’t be bothered with tricky skincare situations. Travel Beauty is here to “shave the day” with a soup-to-nuts skin care and shaving supply kit. Let us spoil your favorite man (or you!) with our top-notch tools and smoothing, soothing products, so you’ll never suffer through a scathing shave again.

Shaving Kit Essential: A Great Shave Starts With a Clean Slate

Men’s skin produces more oil and sweat than women’s, so proper cleansing is important. The gentle yet effective B. Kamins Laboratories Vegetable Cleanser is the perfect pre-shave skin care step to start your shave with a totally clean slate. You can follow your wash with Ursa Major Essential Face Wipes. These travel-friendly, use anytime/anywhere cleansing and toning wipes are saturated with Ursa Major’s 4-in-1 Essential Face Tonic. 4-in-1 Essential Face Tonic is a potent skin care cure-all that removes oil and grime, dissolves dead skin, clears blocked pores, and combats blemishes, razor bumps and ingrown hairs. These can also be used post shave, it’s up to you! Use them regularly and they will deliver clearer, brighter, calmer skin.

Shaving Kit Essential: Tools of the Trade

Your skin is now prepped and ready to be shaved. Even if your skin is not particularly sensitive, shaving can be harsh. Even those with sturdy skin can never go wrong with a shaving cream formulated for sensitive skin. Taylor of Old Bond Street Jermyn Street Collection Shaving Cream for Sensitive Skin is a Travel Beauty favorite. It contains no parabens or allergens, making it especially suitable for even the most sensitive skin. A small amount easily works into a creamy lather that gives great glide and moisture; making a smooth shave a cinch every time.

Don’t Forget Your Shaving Brush

Nothing upgrades your shave like a luxury hand made shaving brush. Using a shaving brush generates more lather, lifts the hair on your face, opens up your pores and naturally exfoliates your skin. All this leads to a closer shave with less irritation, razor burn, and ingrown hairs. Taylor Of Old Bond Street Pure Badger Shaving Brush in Imitation Ivory Travel Case is handmade with the highest quality hair. Its convenient travel case makes it easy to take with you anywhere you go.

Shaving Kit Essential: Post-shave Skin Soothers

After shaving, pores need closing and skin needs soothing. Given their soothing and hydrating properties, you can follow your shave with Ursa Major Essential Face Wipes. They will also help close up your pores. Last, slather on some Mr. Taylor Luxury After Shave Balm or Ursa Major’s Fortifying Face Balm. These high-performance moisturizers, both paraben free, are the perfect solutions for sensitivity, irritation, dryness and blemishes (including ingrown hairs). The powerful formulas contain active natural ingredients like witch hazel, frankincense and lavender to instantly soothe any problem areas and leave skin comfortable, hydrated…not to mention, handsome.
