FAQs: Can I mix and match skin care lines?

FAQs: Can I Mix N Match Skin Care Lines? - SkinMedix.com

This is a question we hear all of the time and our answer is always the same—Aaabsolutely you can! There are a lot of skin care companies that will disagree with us on this one and say you must use all the same products, but truthfully it’s because they want you to ditch your other products and only use theirs. We believe that as long as you’re getting the desired result from whatever product lines you happen to use, customizing your own routine from various lines is perfectly acceptable.

What do you think? Do you mix and match product lines in your skin care regimen?

NEW ARRIVAL: Cool-It Caddy

NEW ARRIVAL: Cool-It Caddy

Introducing our newest arrival—Cool-It Caddy cosmetic coolers by Vinci Designs. These ‘cool’ stylish bags have a fully insulated interior and integrated coolant system that will keep your favorite lip lusters, sunscreens, snacks, medications and make-up chilled even in the hottest of places. It’s small enough to fit into purses, golf and gym bags, backpacks, beach totes, etc., so you your items will stay fresh and cool, no matter what the score–or the temperature!

The Cool-It Caddy concept came about when founder, Deborah Vinci, was golfing in the summer heat and went to re-apply her protective lip balm only to have a large chunk come off onto her lips. Deborah was fed up with dealing with melted lip balm, lipstick, and make-up during her game and decided to find a solution. Shortly after, her very cool, yet haute line of products was born—keeping make-up from melting in the hot summer sun, yet fashionable and fun.

How does Cool-It Caddy work? Just pop your Cool-it Caddy into a freezer until frozen. Next step? Go play…On the course. On the boat. On the go. Courtside. Beachside. Poolside…Cool-it Caddy are always chillin’ by your side!

Stick Your Neck Out: Top Neck Creams

Stick Your Neck Out - Neck Creams

We’re familiar with anti-aging formulas, oil-free moisturizers, skin-brightening creams, and everything in between, but we forget that our “skin” doesn’t just stop at our chin – our necks deserve some of that creamy, dreamy love, too! If you’ve been ignoring that part of your complexion, it’s time to give it a little bit more attention. Continue Reading →


Berry Good Skin

Berry Good Skin - SkinMedix.comStrawberries and green tea may one day be key ingredients to help treat or prevent skin cancer.

Green tea is especially known for its high levels of antioxidants including vitamins such as vitamin C and polyphenols such as epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) that scientists at the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow have used to  create an injectable therapy. When administered into the cells of mice that had skin cancer, 40% of tumors vanished and another 30% shrank.

In another study, a group of Spanish and Italian researchers have discovered that strawberry extract added to skin cell cultures acts as a protector against ultraviolet radiation as well reducing damage to DNA. Then, the researchers exposed those skin cell cultures to ultraviolet light that is equivalent to 90 minutes of mid-day sun in the summertime. The study found that adding the strawberry extract, especially at the highest dose, to the skin cell cultures seemed to help decrease DNA damage and help to preserve the cells’ survival, compared to cells treated with  a placebo.

It’s important to note that the findings in these studies are only in skin cell cultures and mice, and not in actual humans. More research is needed to tell if strawberries  and green tea will actually be viable as a skin protectant (and in what form).

But in the meantime, here’s a full list of sun protection products available on SkinMedix.com!

Skin Care When Traveling

Skin Care When TravelingThe very best way to adjust to a new environment and climate change is to spend some time planning you skin care needs before you travel. While your skin always needs a few days to adjust, proper preparation can help you avoid breakouts, dry skin, and a dismal appearance. Start using using the products you’ll be taking with you 3 days before you leave, to acclimate your skin. Refrain from over using any drying or irritating ingredients, like alpha hydroxy acids or retinols, and replace them with rich, moisturizing creams and serums to help hydrate your skin, as new climates can throw off natural moisture levels.

5 Superstar Anti-Aging Ingredients

Meet the super star players of the skin care world – and learn how to make the work for you.

1. RETINOL (a.k.a. the Cure-All)

What It Does: This vitamin A derivatives that unclog pores, boost collagen to reduce fine lines, and speed cell turnover to even out discoloration and smooth the skin—sometimes in as little as four weeks. Forms of retinol “are among the best anti-aging ingredients we have,” says Jeffrey Dover, an associate clinical professor of dermatology at the Yale School of Medicine.

How It Works: Retinol works so well for skin care because of its molecular size. Vitamin A has long been known to help keep skin healthy and young-looking. However, most forms of vitamin A have molecules that are too large to get through the top layer of skin and into the lower layers of skin to work on the collagen and elastin. Collagen and elastin are both important components for the prevention of wrinkles. Once applied, the retinol sinks into the lower levels of the skin and stimulates the collagen and elastin. This causes the skin to look smoother and feel firmer.

How to Get the Best Results:
Pay attention to packaging. Buy it in an aluminum tube or an opaque plastic pump bottle so light and air don’t degrade it.
Use it at night. The vampire of the skin-care world, retinol works best in the dark.
Put it on after cleansing. Wash your face with warm water and make sure it’s dry before applying retinol. Then, blood vessels and pores are dilated, making more space between cells for absorption. (Prescription versions, called retinoids, in particular must be applied to dry skin or they absorb too quickly and irritate.)
Make sure it tingles. If you can’t feel it, it’s not strong enough, says Dover.
Go easy on your eyes. Dab around the eye area every third night. Retinol is great for undereye crepiness.
