  • The Science of Skin Care: Hyaluronic Acid

    Hyaluronic acid is a promising anti-aging skin care technology. It’s what makes babies’ skin so plump and soft and supple. And in the right delivery mechanism, it can add softness and suppleness to aging skin, too.

    Hyaluronic acid is essentially a lubricant and hydrator, locking water (moisture) where is it needed most. Hyaluronic acid is a major component of synovial fluid around the joints, lubricating the surrounding tissues and allowing them to move smoothly. It is also found in eye tissue and, of course, the skin. In the skin, hyaluronic acid’s ability to lock in moisture helps combat dryness, flaking, scaling and scarring.

    Babies’ skin contains large amounts of hyaluronic acid. Unfortunately, the amount of hyaluronic acid in the skin diminishes with age. The decrease in the skin’s ability to hold moisture can cause it to sag and wrinkle. However, restoring hyaluronic acid to the skin can combat the signs of aging.

    There are two possible ways of increasing hyaluronic acid:

    1. Internally by taking a dietary supplement, or

    2. Externally through hyaluronic acid-containing skin care products

    The results of ingested hyaluronic acid on skin are not well documented. Hyaluronic acid doesn’t know where you need it most, so your body will likely distribute it to all the places it is normally present—your joints, your eyes as well as your skin. That means that if there are any noticeable benefits from hyaluronic acid, will likely you take you much longer to see them.

    Topical delivery is much more likely to give you the anti-aging effects you desire. It is most effective in reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles around the eyes, but it can be an all-over-face aid to soothe and regenerate skin after a chemical peel, sunburn or laser treatment.

    If you are interested in reducing the signs of aging by giving your skin more of what it uses already, check out the It’s Skin Hyaluronic Acid Series at www.beautyborder.com. This skincare series consists a cleanser, a toner, an emulsion and a cream. They have rich amount of hyaluronic acid and is gentle enough for twice-daily application.

  • BB or CC?

    BB or CC? Feeling confused yet? Don’t worry, we have saved you some time and done the research to get us both up to speed with the latest craze in beauty and skin-care. Check this out!

    CC cream is BB (Blemish balm) cream’s trendy younger sister, express from Asia. The ‘CC’ in CC cream generally stands for color correction or color control. A major appeal of both BB and CC cream is the ability to address a number of beauty concerns in one quick application and product. CC cream is a multi-purpose primer that corrects and conceals discoloration, such as redness and uneven skin tone, while offering reasonable SPF, oil control and brightening properties.

    BB cream is, just briefly, the mother of all skin-care time-savers. Moisturizer, foundation, concealer, sun screen? You name it; BB Cream has it in the form of a single product you can slather on before you race out the door. Not only does BB cream act as foundation or tinted moisturizer, it also contains anti-aging and acne-treating properties.

    In short, BB creams are often more preventative, with a focus on preventing aging and treating breakouts. Conversely, CC creams address existing issues, such as redness. CC creams also tend to have a lighter formula with better oil control and higher SPF, making them a good light-weight choice for summer.
    When you’ve completed any pre-make-up skin care, apply a small amount of CC cream to areas you wish to color correct. Cheeks, forehead, nose and chin are generally the most appropriate areas. If you’re happy with a natural look or the coverage of your CC cream, you can go ahead and apply powder. If not, you may consider using your CC cream as a primer and decide to layer your favorite BB cream over the top.

  • Where Skin Aging Starts and How to Prevent It

    Your skin is different in texture and thickness all over your body. On your face alone, skin can vary in oiliness simply based on the region.

    While there is no way to halt the aging process, you can slow the process by taking special care of the areas of facial skin that are more likely to show signs of aging: your eyes and your neck.

    eye aging

    It is unfortunate that the skin around the eyes and neck are usually the first to announce our age – mostly because both areas are central to communication and expression. Our eyes and neck are one of the first features many people notice, but for some reason are commonly neglected in our daily skincare routine.

    Many skip the neck region entirely when washing and moisturizing, mistaking neck skin as having the same needs as your arms, legs, and body. In fact, your neck skin is just as sensitive as the rest of your face and requires the same level of skincare. If neglected, the skin may develop premature wrinkles, making you look older than you actually are.

    And while the skin around the eyes has more elasticity than the rest of your facial skin, it also endures hours of eye movement, blinking, and squinting on a daily basis. Without hydration and nourishment, these repeated movements give wrinkles, bags, and even dark circles free reign on your appearance.

    To prevent the signs of aging, it is essential to use skincare that is engineered for each area of skin. At Beauty Border, we carry the Cellborn Intensive Eye and Neck Cream. This is a cream specially engineered to care for eyes and neck areas. The cream contains a blend of firming complex, collagen, Hyaluronic Acid, Epidermal Growth Factors and various plants extracts to help firm, brighten and reduce lines and wrinkles around eyes and neck. It has a delicate texture melts right in, without a greasy after feel. Ideal for women age 30 and over.

  • Don’t Let your Neck Reveal your Age

    The skin on our neck is much thinner than that on our face. Because it is so thin, it can dramatically change our appearance to make us look older and less youthful by becoming wrinkled and loose. Beauty Border is dedicated to helping you rejuvenate your skin for a youthful and age-defying appearance. That is where the Cellborn Intensive Eye and Neck Cream comes in the picture.

    Cellborn Intensive Eye & Neck Cream

    The thin skin of our neck reveals fine lines as it loses its elasticity and begins to sag with age. The Cellborn Intensive Eye and Neck Cream is an all-natural eye and neck treatment that improves the appearance of fine lines quickly, effectively and 100% safely.

    neck-aging

    No one wants a youthful face with a sagging neck. Keep your neck firm, tight and young by using the Cellborn Intensive Neck and Eye Cream.

  • Why Men Should Moisturize?

    For some reason, when we think of moisturizer, it is accompanied by an image of a woman – usually our mother – dotting cream on her crow’s feet before heading to bed. But, moisturizer is just as important to men as it is to women—especially considering that many men shave!

    man should moisturize

    Bottom line: moisture is vital to skin health whether you are male or female. If there was ever a time to encourage men to invest in moisturizer, it’s now. This is because:

    1. Skincare is part of a healthy lifestyle. Using the right moisturizer can help you exude a healthy glow that reflects your healthy, active life.

    2. Reduce skin problems. Moisturizers are available in a variety of formulations for every skin type. Whether you are acne prone or have sensitive skin, you can find a moisturizer that works for you.

    3. Dry, flakey skin is unattractive. Add a moisturizer to your routine and say goodbye to dry skin flakes!

    4. Moisturizing has anti-aging benefits. The more hydrated your skin is, the less likely it will wrinkle. Keep moisturizing to keep signs of aging at bay.

    5. Smoother, better shave. With hydrated skin, shaving can be less irritating and more effective.

    On average, men do not moisturize their skin as much as women. But, that doesn't mean their skin needs any less hydration. Beauty Border carries the It’s Skin Real Macho Moisturizer that can be easily incorporated into men’s skincare routine.

  • Protecting your Skin with Sunscreen this Winter

    It is a common misconception that because it is often cloudy and there is less day time in the winter season, that sunscreen is unnecessary. In reality, it is quite the opposite. UV rays are just as damaging to our skin in the winter as they are in the summer. Beauty Border carries the Cellborn Sun Cream SPF 45 PA +++ to protect you from the UV rays of the sun, no matter the season.

    Cellborn Sun Cream

    In the winter, we often like to go play in the snow; whether it is snowboarding, sledding or skiing, we hit the slopes for some snowy fun. However there are some increased risks that come with being outdoors during the winter that can damage our skin, such as:

    • High elevations: UV radiation exposure increases by four to five percent for every 1,000 feet above sea level making it more intense and the likelihood of a burn higher.
    • Reflecting snow: Snow reflects up to 80% of the UV light that comes from the sun, increasing your risk for skin damage and burns.
    • Bitter, cold winds: The strong wind and bitter snow combined can slowly wear away your sunscreen causing damage.

    It is important to always be mindful of the sun when going outside, no matter the season. That is why we recommend using a good sunscreen.

    If you want to protect your skin so you can maintain a healthy, youthful appearance, then you want to know what you are putting on your skin. At Beauty Border, we carry the Cellborn Sun Cream SPF 45 PA +++. This sunscreen use only natural ingredients such as titanium dioxide, alumina, glycerin and others.

    The Cellborn Sun Cream SPF 45 PA +++ is a natural UV blocker strong enough to protect your skin from the extreme UV rays that penetrate high elevations and strong enough to stay on your skin when encountering bitter, harsh winds.

    Call Beauty Border at 1-952-646-2454 or visit www.beautyborder.com to order yours today. We will do our best answer any questions you may have about the Cellborn Sun Cream SPF 45 PA +++. If stock is available, we can offer you a sample to try.
