THE GARDEN OF YOUTH

How the Natural, Healthy Ingredients in Our Beauty Products that keep You Feeling and Looking Young

 

The explorer Ponce De Leon was misguided. He bet his historic career on discovering a mythical “fountain of youth” and he died trying.  Had he only known the “fountain” is actually a “garden,” poor Ponce’s story may have ended differently!

It is true, botanicals and their extracts hold the real magic for a youthful appearance. Flower potions are proven to revive, restore, and retain younger skin. Modern technology has produced many amazing, scientifically advanced products but nothing rivals the power of flowers – the authentic Garden of Youth.

Natural, healthy, derivatives from plants provide the basis for many important skin care products.  Consider the value of the following ‘common’ flowers:

Chamomile flowers are members of the Asteraceae family of plants.  Chamomile plants produce white flowers with yellow centers.  They are used as the source for the herb “Chamomile” an, antioxidant, mild astringent, and healing agent. According to significant scientific studies, chamomile flavonoids and essential oils have the ability to penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin.  They inhibit damaging enzyme activity and provide a potent anti-inflammatory for many skin conditions.

Cornflowers are pretty blue darlings and annual flowering plants.  Cornflowers are also members of the Asteraceae plant family.  In the personal care product industry cornflowers are distilled for astringents and skin conditioners.  Cornflowers are rich in polyphenols, flavonoids, and anthocyanins all of which work to protect the skin from free radical damage.

Arnica blooms have yellow or orange petals with a distinct “eye” or center.  There are several varieties of arnica all containing various healing properties. Herbalists often refer to arnica as the “super-healer” of plants.  The dried flowers are harvested to use in skin ointments to treat bruises, swelling, contusions, and pain. Arnica contains high levels of the flavonoids quercetin, rutin, and apigenin all powerful antioxidants that heal and protect the skin from environmental toxins.

Roses are easily the most recognizable and beloved flowers in the world.  Roses are widely used to add fragrance to cosmetics. They are also important conditioning agents delivering antioxidant properties.  Rose extracts are proven to cleanse and tone while boosting the natural regeneration of cells and improving moisture levels. Certain rose varieties – specifically cabbage roses – produce up to 63% phenylethanol a natural preservative and antimicrobial compound.

Lavender, another fragrant garden favorite possesses over 150 compounds. It is frequently used for its antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties. Lavender oil has long been sought to help speed the healing of dry skin, abrasions, cuts, burns, and rashes. Lavender helps normalize the texture of the skin by balancing the production of sebum. Lavender is used as aromatherapy to relieve stress, tension, and to promote relaxation.

Orchids appear most fragile but they are fierce protectors of the skin.  Orchid extracts hydrate and renews cell production while guarding against environmental stressors.  They are known to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. The orchid’s primary anti-aging properties include the distribution of mucilages, important water-holding capacitors used to deliver essential moisture to all skin types.

Hibiscus’ glorious blooms effectively revives the skin. The most potent extract of the hibiscus is anti-aging alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) and amino acids. Blended in skin care products they exfoliate, tone, firms, hydrate, and protects against premature aging. Used to infuse certain circulation-stimulating powers in anti-cellulite creams, hair shampoos and serums – the youth producing benefits of the hibiscus are priceless.

Modern technology continues to produce many amazing, scientifically advanced products but none rival the effectiveness of flowers – the authentic Garden of Youth.

The best way to introduce beneficial botanical attributes to your skin is by using natural, quality, effective skin care products.  Skin Modern seeks out ingredients that are recognizable and utilizable by the body. We have developed a unique proprietary technology to harvest and process the plant’s potent phytonutrients and polyphenols fully intact and active.  The process yields higher concentrations to drench skin cells with a plethora of nutrients to feed healthier skin.

 

A VEGAN DIET – FOR THE SKIN

The Benefits of a Vegan-based Skincare Product Line

 

Veganism is a contemporary term primarily used to describe a plant-based diet. There are many reasons individuals opt to abstain from the use of animals as a nutritional source. Disciples of veganism are typically driven by an acute consciousness for personal health, a concern for the environment, and a respect for all living creatures. That is not to say the person hankering for a big hunk of beef is void of ethical attributes. A vegan diet is simply not to everyone’s taste. There are controversies that both support and detract from the health benefits of removing all animal products from the menu.  There is one vegan effort that has gained acceptance among all dietary groups – vegan skin care.

Many personal care products bear the label “Cruelty-Free.”  Does that make them “Vegan?” No. Do not mistake “cruelty-free” skin care products with vegan products.  The label “cruelty-free” is used by companies that reportedly do not actively test formulations on animals. According to the Food and Drug Association, there is no “legal definition” for the term cruelty-free. Some manufacturers may get a bit creative with their “cruelty-free” consumer product labeling by allowing subcontractors and materials suppliers to conduct testing on ingredients and formulas.  Skin care products may also contain animal by-products such as milk, eggs, honey, or lanolin and still be labeled “cruelty-free.”

Vegan skin care products are considered the most ethical in the cosmetic industry. Vegan products are not tested on animals and production definitively excludes the use of any animal or animal by-products in the ingredients.  The creation of vegan skin products offers consumers a pure, minimalist approach to skin care. Plant or clay-based vegan products often contain essential oils and include face and body cleansers, oils, lotions, moisturizers, soaps, and even lip gloss. Vegan products are compounded without harsh preservatives, chemicals, or toxins that irritate and compromise the skin’s delicate balance.

Independent testing of vegan skin care products indicates they are equal, and in many cases more effective to replenish, revitalize, and restore the skin. They offer a natural, organic way to obtain healthier skin.  Dermatologists often recommend vegan skin care products for patients suffering from acne, psoriasis, dermatitis, and other skin conditions. Do not fear sacrificing vital skin care by electing the vegan choice. You do not have to be vegan to appreciate the proven benefits of vegan products!  

No matter your dietary choice, environmental, or ethical position, explore the high-performing, effective vegan products available. Going skin vegan is healthy, ethically-conscious, and it promotes peak restorative performance.

 

The corporate mission of Skin Moderne is to produce the most natural, organic, effective products possible. No Skin Moderne products or ingredients are ever tested on animals, and we do not permit our raw material suppliers to do so. We have proudly earned the international Leaping Bunny Certification. By seeking out the most modern, technologically advanced naturally derived, bio-active ingredients, we strive to ensure every molecule in every component is recognizable and utilized by the body.

UNDER THE KNIFE

Is Cosmetic Surgery the Best Option or are there Alternatives?

 

     The surgical approach to improving one’s physical appearance is not new.  Ancient Egyptian transcriptions document surgery was performed to change human’s appearance as long ago as 3000 BC.  Sushruta, a physician in India developed techniques for reconstructive surgery in the 6th century BC. An Italian physician named Gaspare Tagliacozzi worked perfecting methods to reconstruct the nose. In his writings, Taliacozzi states his medical mission, “We restore, rebuild, and make whole those parts which nature hath given, but which fortune has taken away. Not so much that it may delight the eye, but that it might buoy up the spirit, and help the mind of the afflicted.” Dr. Gaspare Tagliacozzi is considered by many to be “the father of modern cosmetic surgery.”

   Cosmetic surgeries performed before the 19th century were a very painful and dangerous proposition. Many patients died as a result of the procedures. The discoveries of anesthesia, antibiotics, disinfectants, and sterile techniques improved the procedures, made surgery much safer, and less painless.  By the 1950s cosmetic surgery was a common, acceptable way to alter one’s physical appearance. Nearly any part of the body may be considered for ‘reconstructive’ or ‘plastic surgery.’ Today, an estimated 20 million procedures are performed annually. Americans spend more than $16 Billion dollars a year on nips and tucks.

   The most popular cosmetic surgeries are breast augmentation, liposuction, nose reshaping, tummy tuck, and buttock augmentation. By far, elective cosmetic procedures most in demand are also the least invasive and less costly. They include;

+   Wrinkle treatment injections (botulinum toxin type-A, such as Botox®, Dysport®) (7 million procedures): national average cost of $385 per treatment, results last up to 6 months.

+  Hyaluronic acid fillers (2 million procedures): national average cost of $644 per treatment, results last up to 9 months

+  Chemical peel (1.3 million procedures): national average cost of $673 per treatment, results last up to 2 months

+  Microdermabrasion (775,014 procedures): national average cost of $138 per treatment, results last about 1 month

+  Laser treatments (Intense Pulsed Light) (656,781 procedures): national average cost of $433 per treatment, results last 2 to 5 years.

 

Unlike surgical procedures, the effects of the minimally invasive and topical cosmetic procedures are not “permanent.”    Most of these applications will need to be repeated on a regular basis to sustain desired results.

The many medical procedures available to correct skin imperfections and improve the appearance are impressive.  A realistic outcome, lasting effects of treatments, cost, downtime, and associated health risk factors must be diligent considerations in the decision to elect any procedure.  Before you choose to go “under the knife” try a kinder, gentler, natural approach.

 

Embrace a new lifestyle. It’s never too late to start.

+  A healthier diet. Look for ‘superfoods’ and nutrients that feed the skin as well as the body.

+  Exercise at least 30 minutes a day, three days a week.  Ride a bike, swim, try yoga, or simply take a brisk walk. The effort will increase blood flow, enhance oxygen, and improve the health of the skin, muscles, and body. Outdoor exercise is especially beneficial but always remember the SUNSCREEN!

+  Limit exposure to pollution and free-radicals.  Avoid the threat of sunburn and windburn. If you smoke – STOP. Drink in moderation.

+  Practice good skin care daily. A quality, gentle cleanser formulated for your skin type will wash away dead skin cells and produce a radiant glow.

+  Be wise – moisturize! Regardless of your age; 20s, 40s, 60s or older, your skin needs moisturizing support to prevent wrinkles and to retain a youthful appearance.

+  Quality counts so choose skin care products that not only deliver the best immediate results but actually work to prevent the signs of aging skin, produce aging reversal, and promote skin wellness.

 

Skin Moderne products are formulated to revitalize a youthful, beautiful appearance naturally. Every molecule in every ingredient is recognizable and utilized by the body.  Our products are free of harmful chemicals that may cause irritation and cellular toxicity. Spare the knife and treat your skin with the Live Line Bundle for a sample of total skincare goodness. Like our many other clients, you will be glad you did!

STOP DYING FOR BEAUTY

Humans have cultivated an obsession with physical beauty since well, the beginning of time. The quest for full, red lips, black-rimmed eyes, and a flawless complexion proves irresistible and worth nearly anything. In many cases, the cost of such beauty is life itself.

Archaeologists discovered the use of mineral pigmentation and plant dyes among bodies exhumed from thousand-year-old African excavations.  More than 12,000 years ago Ancient Greek, Egyptian, and Roman civilizations widely used castor oil, beeswax, olive oil, and rosewater as balms and skin creams. In 1929 it was estimated that a pound of face powder was sold annually for every woman in the U.S and there were more than 1,500 face creams on the market. Today, personal care products represent 265 billion dollars in sales globally. Cosmetics in some form are present in nearly every society on earth.  

The production and use of cosmetics is historically a very dangerous business.  Until the 19th-century beauty concoctions consisted of whatever ingredients were available. Testing creations for safety proved more often than not an afterthought. Formulations often consisted of toxic chemicals such as lead, copper, bleaches, hemlock, and arsenic. Application of the tainted cosmetics resulted in severe injuries to the skin, eyes, nose, mouth, and health — in some cases, the damage led to death. By the early 1900s governments around the world demanded oversight of the consumer products manufacturing process. To comply with regulations, and to ensure the wellbeing of users (and to protect corporate images) modern age cosmetic companies embraced a wide-range practice of testing cosmetics on animal subjects including mice, hamsters, Guinea pigs, rabbits, monkeys, cats, and dogs.

Today, animal rights organizations estimate one new ingredient in any cosmetic product leads to the death of at least 1,400 test animals.  The number of animals sacrificed each year in research laboratories ranges in the millions! Despite the harm done to the test subjects and the subsequent outrage of various activist organizations, many cosmetic companies actively practice live animal testing for products.

To be fair, animal testing may have once been the appropriate research alternative to protect human health.  Given advances in technology and the availability of approved substances, animal testing is no longer an essential protocol.  More scientific methods are available to accurately measure potential risks in the development of products including the use of in vitro samples. Researchers have developed artificial skin as an effective alternative to animal testing.  There are even synthetic models of major organs developed to predict the effects of potentially toxic ingredients on the human body. Live animal testing for most research is optional. For consumer products live animal testing is NOT a regulated requirement. The practice is prohibited in several countries including Norway, Israel, India, and the European Union. Legislation to limit or ban live testing is currently under consideration within individual state jurisdictions in the US.

Want to do your part to protect animals from the inhumane practice of testing beauty and household products on live specimens?  It’s easy. Simply look for “Leaping Bunny” the Cruelty-Free International logo. CFE is the global organization managing the certification of ethical companies around the world who pledge to be “cruelty-free.”

SkinModerne never tests products or ingredients on animals nor do we permit our material suppliers to do so.  We are an ethical, “Leaping Bunny Certified” manufacturer.

STOP dying for beauty – commit to purchase only cruelty-free products!

BEST PRACTICES FOR SIMPLY SUPERB SKIN

Aging is inevitable. Most adults spend an enormous amount of time and money to look and feel as young as possible for as long as possible. Unfortunately, the body’s largest and most visible organ – the skin – bears some of the more prominent signs of the aging process.  So, how is it that many people achieve clear, radiant, youthful-looking skin well into their senior years? Aside from winning the DNA lottery for good skin genes what are the best practices for simply superb skin?

 

HYDRATION – Skin that is well hydrated (inside and out) is best equipped to resist overt signs of aging. Drinking an adequate amount of water daily provides each layer of the epidermis with moisture.  Consuming water also flushes toxins and transports nutrients throughout the body. Water quickly moves through the body so to create the most efficient hydration cycle for the skin the daily the use of a natural, nutrient-dense moisturizer is recommended.  

TIP:  Organic moisturizers like Skin Moderne’s Breakfast Smoothie and Dinner Smoothie are specifically formulated to provide deep hydration and to nourish, protect and rejuvenate skin.

 

PROTECTION – The skin is vulnerable to free radical damage every single day promoting the onset of dehydration, wrinkles, and the melanogenesis process.   Thinner, dry, discolored, and wrinkled skin is the result of the accumulation of free radical damage. Environmental sources such as air pollution, cigarette smoke, poor nutrition, and radiation all produce high-level free radicals. The sun’s destructive UV rays are among the most notorious and unavoidable sources. Sunlight is not the only enemy. Electronic devices such as computer monitors, cell phones, and televisions produce “high energy visible light” (HEV) also known as blue light which can result in the fine lines of early aging symptoms.  To protect the skin from these damaging sources apply sunscreen every day, avoid prolonged sun exposure, and consider putting a filter over HEV screens, do not smoke, and maintain a healthy lifestyle.  

TIP: To help minimize damage, Skin Moderne developed Éclairissant Serum with patented, double-encapsulation technology. Éclairissant Serum penetrates skin cells to block the melanogenesis process, reduce inflammation, and boost cell renewal.  

 

CLEANSING – Keeping the skin clean may seem like an obvious routine toward achieving a good complexion. Washing your skin removes dirt, oil, bacteria, dead cells, and other debris. Regular cleansing helps maintain an optimum level of hydration, and it provides a good pallet for skin care products. Knowing HOW to clean may be one of the best-kept secrets for achieving healthy, glowing skin.  Choose a natural skin cleanser that is appropriate for your skin type. Use a loofah every day to exfoliate dead skin, scales, and to promote the production of new skin cells. Do not use hot water as it increases dryness. Always moisturize after cleansing to revitalize the skin’s youthful appearance.

TIP:  Cleansing Gel Smoothie is a sulfate-free cleanser formulated with mild natural plant-based cleansers and NO harsh, chemically derived detergents. It is gentle, yet purifying and leaves your skin feeling clean and nourished.

 

NUTRITION – Properly fueling the body’s system with good nutrition is critical to overall health. To keep the skin soft, supple, and elastic certain nutrients such as beta-carotene, vitamin C, vitamin E, selenium, and zinc are especially essential. Eating “superfoods” like fresh fruits and vegetables, fatty fish, nuts, and seeds provide the optimal method for introducing nutrients to the body.

TIP:  Subsidizing the diet with an organic skincare regime like Elements Bi-P Wrinkle Repair paired with MzC Skin Oxygenation works to produce great nutrition from the outside/in! The Elements product line is free from harsh chemicals and loaded with highly efficacious ingredients.  Combined, these two products boost the other’s strength, creating the ultimate anti-aging treatment.  

 

SLEEP – Who knew our grandmother’s advice of “get your beauty sleep” was not simply a sweet sentiment but an anti-aging fact?   Turns out sleep provides the body with critical healing time. Sleep promotes blood flow which boosts oxygen to all organs including the skin. When the body is sleep deprived it reacts by releasing stress hormones. These aggressive hormones lead to chronic inflammation and many skin problems including atopic dermatitis, eczema, and psoriasis. A tired, sleepy body at any age simply looks older.  

TIP:  Daily use of our new Cell-CPR provides resuscitation for tired skin by working in harmony with your body’s natural biological and cell-signaling processes. It was designed to not only mimic your cells but stimulate the body to naturally produce new cells and restore your youthful beauty. 

 

EXERCISE – Run, swim, bicycle, hike, walk, or enroll in a yoga class! The benefits of exercise on the body cannot be overstated. Those benefits are especially telling on the skin. Exercise increases blow flow to the skin.  It promotes the production of sebum – the skin’s natural moisturizer. The increased oxygen from exercise carries valuable nutrients to boost skin health. A bonus benefit of exercise is weight control which keeps skin tight and more wrinkle resistant. Just remember to apply sunscreen for any outdoor activity!  

TIP:  A nourishing boost of Refreshment Spritz will provide your skin the feel of a good, refreshing, workout anytime, anywhere. Apply the nutrient-dense, organic elixir as a refreshing toner spritz for post-cleansing, a stand-alone skin treatment, or an aromatherapy pick-me-up throughout the day.

 

KISS – Yes, a happy relationship will give the skin a certain glow, but in this case, the very best method to obtain simply stunning skin is to practice the KEEP IT SIMPLE SWEETHEART (KISS) approach.  Even those lucky individuals with great skin genes are required to practice some daily care to maintain their precious gift. Simply choosing to practice beneficial health habits, good common sense, a diligent skincare regimen, and embrace the evolving industry science you too can experience simply superb skin at any age!

TIP:  Skin Moderne products are formulated from natural and naturally derived bio-active ingredients, which are clinically tested for safety, efficacy, and skin compatibility. We keep our ingredient lists as short as possible, strip out all unnecessary fillers and additives, and only deliver what your skin needs- KISS!

The Skin Moderne Difference: How Skin Moderne’s Revolutionary And Unique Products Are Changing the Face of the Skincare Industry

Skincare Industry

The New Standard for Skincare Products is here

Many women and men have lost faith in skincare products and the companies that sell them, and rightfully so. There are tons of skincare gimmicks out there that promise to “completely change your skin” or “stop aging in its tracks,” but don’t even come close to producing those results. These unfulfilled promises have, understandably, caused people to think twice before paying premium prices for skincare and aging products. At Skin Moderne, we think it’s time for this to change.

Skin Moderne wants to improve not just the products you put on your face, but the face of the skincare industry. Not just another disappointing, overpriced skincare line, Skin Moderne follows a standard that goes above and beyond cosmetic regulations to bring you clean, natural products that are fairly priced and actually live up to their promises. Many cosmetic brands just say they make a difference, but Skin Moderne products truly change people’s lives.

We pride ourselves on the many consumers who have used our products and seen a difference in their skin and overall wellness. While our products’ results speak for themselves, we are driven to share the Skin Moderne difference.

Our difference is in the ingredients we choose to put in our products. Free of any harsh chemicals, we strip away the unnecessary fillers and additives present in many of today’s popular skincare products, leaving you with only what your skin needs. Every ingredient we use serves a purpose, and is natural or naturally-derived, skin-compatible, and extremely effective.

Skin Moderne products are unique, because we take great care in choosing high-quality ingredients that are recognizable and utilizable by the body, and have no potentially harmful reactions. Plus, we do not allow our ingredients or products to be tested on animals.

Another key difference that sets Skin Moderne apart, is our relentless dedication to fostering a culture of innovation in skin wellness. We know our skincare products are good, but we are constantly pushing boundaries and experimenting to discover new ways to make them even better. We strive to bring you the most up-to-date products in preventative aging, aging reversal, and overall skin wellness, while always meeting our clean and green standards.

Skin Moderne is different because we push limits in order to deliver healthy, natural skincare products whose results exceed expectations and bring people value.

Superfood Skincare: Why the Top-Rated Skin Products in the World Are Infused with Superfoods

The Secret Behind Natural Skincare Products & Their Benefits

Want healthy, glowing skin? Just start matching your skin products to your grocery list! Healthy kitchen staples like blueberries, carrots, and kale are just a few examples of the nutrient-packed group called superfoods. While most people understand the health benefits linked to eating organic superfoods over processed junk foods, they often aren’t aware of the positive effects these same foods can have when used on your skin.

Rich with phytonutrients and antioxidants, superfoods are known to reduce inflammation, fight environmental aggressors, and prevent free radical damage. When used in skincare products, these nutrient-dense superfoods properly nourish skin cells, preventing wrinkles and leaving you with healthier, radiant skin.

Why should we carefully choose what we put into our bodies, but not glance at what’s in the products we put on our skin? After all, the skin is the body’s largest organ, with countless cells that need to be cared for, just like the rest of the body.

Many skincare products out there today are the equivalent of junk food for your face, chock-full of enough chemicals to match your kitchen cleaner. The toxic chemicals present in common skin products aren’t recognizable by the body and irritate the skin. Unlike these harmful ingredients, natural superfoods are easily absorbed and utilized and give the body what it needs to thrive.

Thankfully, now the numerous benefits of superfoods can be delivered directly to the skin topically! Skin Moderne, for example, applies unique technology to harvest superfoods that not only maintain their important phytonutrients and polyphenols, but yield a high concentration of them. This ensures clean skincare products that feed and revitalize skin cells.

Below are several superfoods to become familiar with, and the Skin Moderne products that contain them.

Pumpkin

Not just your favorite latte flavor, pumpkin is a natural superfood that’s full of nutrients and antioxidants that are great for your skin. Skin Moderne’s Breakfast Smoothie is a day-time moisturizer that contains pumpkin extract in addition to other natural ingredients and hyaluronic acid for hydration and wrinkle reduction. This superfood-rich moisturizer nourishes and protects skin cells, helping you achieve glowing skin all day long.

Acai

Another awesome superfood, acai berries are high in antioxidants and essential fatty acids. They’re just as great for your skin as they are in your acai bowl. Along with other organic plant ingredients, like blueberry, pomegranate, and mangosteen, Skin Moderne’s Cleansing Gel Smoothie is packed with acai extract that will help cleanse and purify your skin without the use of any chemically derived detergents.

Kale

This leafy green superfood contains potent antioxidants that help reduce skin inflammation. Decadent Dessert Smoothie, Skin Moderne’s nourishing rejuvenation serum, combines kale and other organic superfood extracts with active plant cells, proteins, and amino acids to create a powerful anti-aging serum. As the name suggests, it’s decadent, luxurious, and leaves your skin glowing and youthful.

Goji

Goji is rich with iron and vitamins C and A. This nutrient-dense super fruit is one of the organic superfood extracts used in Skin Moderne’s Refreshment Spritz, a nourishing toner loaded with natural superfoods and organic essential oils for aromatherapy. In addition to its use of goji and other clean ingredients, it is multi-functional and can be used as a toning spritz, skin treatment, or pick-me-up throughout the day.

There are many other amazing superfoods that are beneficial to your overall health and skin. The superfood skincare trend isn’t going anywhere anytime soon, so now that you’re familiar with a few, you can start implementing Skin Moderne’s natural superfood products into your skincare routine!

THE BEST SKINCARE PRODUCTS FOR MEN

The Best Skincare Products for Men

Tips for a Simple Routine to Achieve Better, Younger Looking Skin

Okay men, let’s get down to business. From acne struggles to the first signs of aging, we know that you care just as much about the appearance of your skin as your female counterparts. That’s why we, at Skin Moderne, want to help you learn how to better take care of your body’s largest organ. With the right routine and products – and, no, we don’t mean just stealing whatever your girlfriend has on the bathroom counter – you can achieve younger, healthier-looking skin.

First, let’s clear something up. There is a common misconception that men’s skin is somehow different than women’s, and there are tons of skincare products out there with ‘manly packaging’ that feed into this idea. We’re here to tell you that your skin is not that different from women’s. While men do tend to have larger pores, this is only because they typically don’t have as vigorous skincare regimens or make the effort to protect their skin from damage.

Skin is skin, no matter your gender. There is no magical product that only works for males. However, we do understand that when it comes to skincare, men don’t want to use a product that’s pink and smells like a flower. We also know that simplicity is key. Men are not likely to keep up with a heavy, 10-step skin routine.

Well men, Skin Moderne has got you covered. Our natural skincare products are all made for both women and men, so we don’t add any overwhelming perfumes. The only fragrances you’ll find in our products are already naturally present in the organic, superfood ingredients we use.

Plus, they are incredibly easy to use, light, and highly effective. While every man has varying skin issues they want to address, the experts behind Skin Moderne suggest this basic skin regimen because it will keep your skin clean, moisturized, and protected from free radicals, aka environmental aggressors, while also providing anti-aging properties to keep fine lines and wrinkles at bay.

Want to avoid rough skin and those pesky crow’s feet? Make these three simple skincare products part of your quick, daily routine to treat and protect your skin.

 

 

Put down the bar soap and the 3-in-1 body wash. These usually contain harsh ingredients that can irritate and dry out your skin. Instead, try Skin Moderne’s mild, natural plant based facial cleanser. It’s gentle, and will leave your skin feeling clean and nourished every time.

 

 

Keeping your skin properly moisturized is key for maintaining younger, brighter looking skin. This natural, nutrient dense product is the mother of all moisturizers. While it’s not actually a smoothie, it does technically “feed” your skin all the nutrients it craves. Loaded with organic moisturizing ingredients, it contains hyaluronic acid for hydration and wrinkle reduction, and provides long-term skin cell protection from pollution and free radicals, all while giving you a natural glow of subtle color.

 

 

Serums are ideal for men, because unlike thick and heavy creams, they are extremely light, so you won’t feel like you’re wearing a pound of lotion on your face after application. Skin Moderne’s Vitamin C serum is an awesome skincare staple every man should add to their daily routine. It’s extremely easy to apply, as you can use it on its own or kill two birds with one stone and mix in a few pumps with your cleanser or moisturizer. Its high levels of Vitamin C will brighten tired, dull looking skin.

There you have it. Three basic skincare products for men to develop a quick and insanely easy skincare routine. So simple and effective, your girlfriend might actually start stealing your products.

How to Pick a Great Skincare Product: Helping Consumers Understand How Quality Skincare Products Are Made and Tested

Quality Skincare Products

The Difference is Clear – How to know what Skincare Products are Best for You and Your Skin

Go to your local beauty store and you’ll undoubtedly find shelves upon shelves of nicely packaged skincare products all claiming to be the best. Who has the time or patience to decide? What’s worse, many skincare products on those shelves don’t come close to delivering the results they promise. It can not only be incredibly frustrating, but costly to use the trial and error method to find a great product that delivers.

In a world where we’re increasingly exposed to more and more options and misleading advertising, it is vital you find the right information and products you can trust. That’s why we at Skin Moderne, a revolutionary skincare company committed to providing honest and natural products, are making it our goal to help you understand what makes a good skincare product great.

We take your skin seriously, and believe everyone should know exactly what they’re putting on their face. Here are the top elements that mark a safe, quality skincare product, so you never have to question your beauty store purchases again!

1) Clean Ingredients

Going back to the shelves at the beauty store, do you ever glance at the back of the bottles and wonder why so many of the products’ contents contain ingredients you can’t even pronounce? Do yourself a favor, and put it back on the shelf. Many common skincare products out there contain a ton of harsh, unnecessary chemical ingredients that can irritate and damage skin.

When searching for a safe skincare product with high-quality results, the first thing you should look for is clean, organic ingredients. Skin Moderne, for example, ONLY uses ingredients that are natural or naturally-derived. Our conscientious methodology and modern technology ensures we source only the best raw materials for our products. We keep our ingredient lists short, and save the harmful chemicals for our bathroom floor cleaner.

2) Biocompatible

When skincare products contain natural, organic ingredients, they are far more biocompatible than those chock-full of chemicals. Biocompatibility is another important element of great skincare products, because when ingredients are biocompatible, our bodies recognize the molecular structure of those ingredients and are able to easily utilize them and produce results.

To put it simply, if an ingredient isn’t biocompatible our bodies won’t recognize it and it can potentially become an irritant, creating chemical build-up and cellular toxicity. If that doesn’t make you double check what’s in your products, we don’t know what will.

Every ingredient used in Skin Moderne’s products are biocompatible. Our LIVE line of organic skincare products contains natural superfood extracts like blueberries, acai, kale, and pumpkin, which are highly skin compatible and recognizable by the body. They are rich in phytonutrients and antioxidants, giving the skin only what it needs to thrive.

3) Level of Efficacy

While this one can get a little technical, it’s super important when it comes to great skincare products. Many people get frustrated with their skincare products, because they spend good money, but don’t see the results they were promised. Sometimes these products even contain quality, active materials. But the problem is, they are used at such a low level that the product doesn’t have any efficacy and produces little results.

The experts behind Skin Moderne have solved this frustrating problem and ensure maximum levels of efficacy in every product. Our unique Nano-technology delivery system allows the clean, active ingredients to penetrate the skin without being diluted. It is also designed to deliver the ingredients to areas where they will be most effective.

Let’s be honest, there’s a science behind creating great skincare products. By seeking out the most modern technology, Skin Moderne is able to produce effective products that bring you the results you want, all while maintaining our clean and green standards.

There you have it. Avoid information overload or buying, yet again, an ineffective skincare product. Stick to these guidelines and pick a quality skincare product every time. All of Skin Moderne’s products contain natural ingredients, are biocompatible, and highly efficacious. With high-quality ingredients, unique philosophies, and modern technologies, Skin Moderne is making a difference in preventative aging, aging reversal, and overall skin wellness.

Fact of life: everyone’s skin changes in a variety of ways as we age. Natural processes in the body that keep your skin bright and youthful start to decline over time. Wrinkles, sagging skin, less collagen production, reduced elasticity, and skin cells not turning over as quickly are just some of the things we have to look forward to.

And these internal factors are not the only causes of aging skin. Lifestyle influences like stress, tobacco and alcohol use, and unprotected sun exposure are a few external components that can advance the skin’s aging process, as well.

That’s why it’s so important to understand and include an anti-aging product in your skincare regimen to prevent early signs of aging or specifically address already mature skin issues. You can’t stop time, but you can slow it down by using the right skincare products!

With this in mind, Skin Moderne has compiled the top elements to look for and avoid in anti-aging skincare products to help you minimize those pesky signs of aging we all experience.

1) Avoid Chemicals

When it comes to anti-aging products, it is especially important to be aware of the specific ingredients that you’re putting on your skin. Products that contain a massive list of chemicals are harsh and can cause even further damage to already mature skin.

By talking with consumers and ingredient houses, the experts at Skin Moderne have discovered that many people who have used these chemical-filled products feel they only advance skin aging. That’s why all of Skin Moderne’s products are absolutely free of any harmful chemicals.

When seeking a safe, revitalizing anti-aging product, a good rule of thumb is: If you can’t pronounce at least half of the ingredients, don’t put it on your skin.

2) Nourishing Ingredients

Now that you’re aware of what to avoid, you should also know what ingredients to look for. With anti-aging products, you want to use safe, nourishing ingredients that are rich in natural oils and fats. Overall, natural ingredients benefit the skin, because they are more skin compatible and recognizable by the body than harsh chemicals. Plus, products rich with lipids – oils and fats – work to lubricate aging skin, that tends to be drier and produce lower oil levels.

Hyaluronic acid is another powerful ingredient to look for in anti-aging products. It isn’t harsh, and works to keep skin plump, hydrated, and youthful.

Decadent Dessert Smoothie, Skin Moderne’s potent anti-aging serum, combines active plant cells, organic superfood extracts, and hyaluronic acid to stimulate collagen production, cell renewal, and moisture, while reducing fine lines and wrinkles.

Using anti-aging skincare products that contain natural ingredients ensures the skin is getting only the nutrients it needs to restore healthy, radiant skin.

3) Efficacy

While being highly effective is a quality desired for any skincare product, it is especially important to consider when searching for an anti-aging skincare line. The main problem with so many anti-aging products out there is their active materials are used at such low levels they don’t have the efficacy needed to produce the results you’re looking for.

In order to reverse years of damage and signs of aging, you need to look at the technology behind the product to understand how it’s going to work once it’s used on your skin. Otherwise, you’ll just waste time and money applying an ineffective product.

Skin Moderne, for example, uses unique Nano-technology that allows active ingredients to penetrate the skin and get to work in the areas where they will be most effective. Plus, all of our ingredients are clinically tested for efficacy levels and safety. By seeking out the most modern technology, Skin Moderne is able to maximize the efficacy of our products and give you real results.

At Skin Moderne, it’s our mission to make a difference in preventative aging, aging reversal, and overall skin wellness. Creating natural products that actually revitalize people’s skin is what gets us up in the morning! Each and every one of our products are designed to deliver exactly what they promise, helping you avoid the frustrating experience of spending money on anti-aging skin products that either don’t work or are harmful to you.

How Organic Ingredients Naturally Increase Your Body’s Ability to Adopt Skincare Products

Ever wonder why your “grapefruit” or “apricot” scrub or moisturizer isn’t actually the color of a grapefruit or an apricot? Well, the leaders behind Skin Moderne have, too.

Many skincare companies today claim their products contain natural superfood plant ingredients, but they completely lack the color, or pigment, of the plant, which contains many of the valuable health benefits. From its early stages, Skin Moderne has always used natural or naturally-derived ingredients that are recognizable by the body. But with a lot of research and the help of a special, patented technology, we are now able to retain the important, rich pigment of the organic fruits and veggies we incorporate into our skincare products. Even better, the preservation method is 100% natural.

Without getting too scientific, the phytonutrients and antioxidants that fight environmental aggressors and inflammation are present in the natural pigment of fruits and vegetables. So skincare products that say they contain blueberry, but are white in color are lacking what makes including the blueberry beneficial in the first place. You wouldn’t eat a blueberry that wasn’t the natural rich shade of bluish purple, so why should you put a blueberry skincare product that’s actually white on your face?

Enter Skin Moderne’s LIVE line of all-natural, organic skincare products that actually possess the natural color and benefits of the superfood ingredients they contain. We put live, fresh food ingredients, hence the name LIVE, in each of these products, such as blueberry, mangosteen, carrot, and more. And while you’re not actually eating the ingredients, the nutrients are technically working to feed your skin!

Because the superfood infused LIVE line is designed to “feed” your skin, each product is uniquely named after actual meals. Our nutrient dense, moisturizing day cream, for example, is called “Breakfast Smoothie,” while the rich, hydrating night cream is “Dinner Smoothie.” We chose to add “smoothie” to the name, because drinking a smoothie is rejuvenating and leaves people feeling cleaner and nourished. And that’s exactly what our LIVE line products will do for your skin.

Filled with all-natural superfood ingredients that are packed with phytonutrients, Skin Moderne’s LIVE products are highly recommended for consumers searching for clean, organic skincare products. From the fresh ingredients to the technology we use, Skin Moderne is passionate about creating absolutely natural, efficacious skincare products. Start feeding your skin today with our LIVE line!
