When and why would you use a Toner?
Toners are great products to add to your at-home skin care regimen. Toners help balance pH, remove excess dirt, oil, makeup and cleanser residue, and help prep for better delivery of active ingredients from serums and moisturizers. In addition, emerginC toners help address common skin care concerns such as dehydration, pigmentation issues, oily skin, breakouts, and sensitive skin.
Should you use sunscreen all year long?
While it is important to get a healthy amount of sun for vitamin D intake, regular use of sunscreen can help reduce your risk of skin cancer, sun damage, and/or premature aging. We suggest using a broad spectrum sunscreen of at least spf 30, such as our tinted or non-tinted sun spf 30+. emerginC sun spf 30+ use physical sunscreens (as opposed to chemical sunscreens), such as titanium dioxide and zinc oxide, antioxidants, vitamins, and botanical extracts to nourish and moisturize skin. emerginC sunscreens can be used on the face and body, and are suited for men and women.
Is it safe to use the scientific organics at-home peel + clarifying kit every day?
Our scientific organics at-home peel + clarifying kit combines a gentle, multi-fruit acid blend of bilberry, sugar cane, sugar maple, lemon and orange extracts, as well as lactic acid to exfoliate dead skin cells without harsh irritation to skin. The at-home peel + clarifying kit can be used as a daily resurfacing treatment, however, you may reduce frequency if skin becomes too dry.
Do you have anything I can put on my face as an overnight treatment to help even out my skin tone?
Our triple threat creamis a perfect choice for an overnight skin resurfacing treatment. The triple threat cream contains alpha hydroxy acids, salicylic acid, retinol, and vitamin C to help remove dead surface skin cells, and promote cell turnover. Applied nightly for 6-8 weeks, you will see an improvement in uneven skin tone or hyper-pigmentation. It is advised to use our sun spf 30+ sunscreens in the morning to protect skin while using the triple threat cream.
I have very sensitive, fair skin. Also it has a red undertone to it. I am now living in the dryer climate of northern California and at 50 yrs old this is hard on my skin. What I need is a good sunscreen to go with my daily makeup. Everything that I hav
We recommend our tinted spf 30+ sunscreen (perfect for face and body) if you are looking for a good sunscreen. Our tinted spf 30+ is a non-comedogenic (non-pore clogging), broad spectrum UVA and UVB sunscreen infused with tea extracts, vitamins C and E, and botanical extracts to help protect and nourish skin. The tinted spf 30+ has a tint that works for nearly all skin tones to help diminish redness. Bonus, we use only natural UV filters (titanium dioxide and zinc oxide), nothing chemical, for a more natural approach to skin protection.
What are the best acne ingredients to use in your 30s and 40s? I want to fight both acne and signs of aging.
Look for products containing glycolic, salicylic acid or retinoic acid. These ingredients are all chemical exfoliants, so they'll help get rid of the dead skin clogging your pores and help with cell turnover to reduce the appearance of fine lines and discoloration. The scientific organics at-home peel + clarifying kit excellent as it contains natural fruit acids acids and willow bark extract (which contains natural salicylic acid).
How do I choose the most appropriate eye cream for my eye area?
Choose an eye product that addresses your specific needs. There are many eye creams available, and each of them is formulated to treat diferent problems. If you are looking to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and sagging, choose an anti-aging eye cream like our hyper vitalizer eye cream, with alpha lipoic and coenzyme Q10, or protocell bio-active stem cell combat eye cream, with anti-aging apple stem cells. If you want a product that will help treat under-eye circles or pufness, look for products with brightening ingredients like arbutin and anti-inflammatory ingredients such as green tea- some of the main ingredients in our emerginC lighten-up eye cream.
