Transitioning to a New Skin Care Regimen

Most people are hesitant when changing their skincare routine. Whether their current one is working or not, they fear that changing their products will have a negative impact on their skin. The truth is implementing different skincare products and ingredients into your routine are beneficial. Just like a personal trainer advises their clients to rotate their workouts so your muscles don’t become complacent, estheticians advise their clients to change their skincare routine. This allows the skin to receive different benefits from new products. Your skin is consistently changing and your skincare should be adjusting to reflect your skins current needs.

If you are making the decision to try natural products for the first time, or you are switching over your skincare products from summer to autumn, you might experience a transition phase known as skin detoxing. Detoxing can have some not so pleasant side effects and appear in several different ways depending on your skin type. The most common symptoms of skin detoxing are acne, redness, skin sensitivity, excessive oil production, or lack of oil production. This period could last from a couple of days to a couple of weeks depending on the type of change you are making. Keep in mind if you are changing over to natural products for the first time this period may last a little longer.

            Below are Lemongrass Products that can help each detox symptom your skin may experience. They may not cure them 100%; however they will act as an aid until your skin adjusts.

Used for centuries in Africa to moisturize and protect skin from the harsh elements, “shea butter is the skin’s best friend,” according to the American Shea Butter Institute. The shea tree (Butyrospermum parkii), nicknamed “The Tree of Life” because every part of the tree is used as a natural health remedy, produces mango-sized green fruits, the nuts (seeds) from which shea butter is extracted. Shea butter has been studied for its chemical makeup and is a favorite in natural skin and hair care.

These are some of shea butter’s nutrient benefits:

  • Vitamin A aids in skin protection and healing
  • Vitamin D promotes skin cell growth 
  • Vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant, protects against sun and free radical damage and slows the signs of aging
  • Essential fatty acids to help with skin cell renewal and acts as a skin protector, soothing dry chapped skin

Shea butter is renowned for its emollient and anti-inflammatory properties to sooth minor skin conditions such as sun burns, small wounds, eczema, allergies, blemishes, cracks and bruises. Shea butter can decrease the amount of moisture loss in skin and hair and stimulate collagen production to strengthen skin. It is said the moisturizers present in shea butter are also some of the same moisturizers produced by skin’s sebaceous glands, making it suitable for all skin types. As an added bonus, shea butter could have sunscreen properties (up to SPF 6) due to naturally occurring cinnamic acid.

For softer, smoother looking skin and hair, choose products enhanced with shea butter*, like some of our Lemongrass Spa Products’ favorites. Your skin and hair will thank you!

Ingredient Spotlight: Jojoba Oil

Pressed from seeds of the scrub Simmondsiachinensis and used for centuries to treat wounds, jojoba [pronounced hoh-hoh-buhoil stars in skincare products due to its numerous benefits. Comprised of fatty acids and fatty alcohols, this golden liquid isn’t oil at all but a liquid wax, and is loaded with vitamin E, vitamin B complex, vitamin C, myristic acid, iodine and the minerals silicon, chromium, copper and zinc.

Revered in folk medicine for its skin healing properties, studies on jojoba oil, as with many natural skincare ingredients, have only recently begun. A preliminary study on the effects of jojoba oil on mild acne, in which participants used a clay and jojoba oil mask, showed an average of 54% acne reduction, and jojoba was found to help speed the closure of wounds according to a 2011 study published in the Journal of Ethnopharmacology. Inflammation can be blamed for skin conditions such as eczema and acne, and a 2005 study concluded jojoba could help reduce inflammation. Results of these studies confirm why natural skincare manufacturers choose to use this ancient oil.

These are just some of the reasons to use jojoba oil:

  • Suitable for all skin types
  • Quick absorbing with no greasy residue
  • Antibacterial & anti-inflammatory for soothing dry, itchy skin
  • Increases hydration to skin
  • Improves skin’s suppleness
  • Fights the signs of aging due to high levels of antioxidants Vitamin E and Vitamin C
  • Calms and heals sunburnt skin
  • Removes buildup on hair follicles which can help reduce dandruff

Reap jojoba oil’s nourishing benefits by trying our now famous seasonal favorites such as Frosted Cranberry Hand & Body Soap, Perfectly Pumpkin Body Polish and Candy Cane Hand & Body Lotion. Or pamper your skin all year long with the #1 selling Healing Elements Balm, chapped skin savior Ultra Hydrating Body Crème and creamy new Men’s Essentials Shaving Crème, just to name a few.
