• Detox Your Skin with Shinso

    December 14th, 2014



    Around the holidays, it’s easy for our skin to change. Between the cold wind and weather and indulging in not-so-healthy foods and alcohol, all these factors can affect the quality and appearance of your skin. After the holidays, you’ll most likely want to detox your skin, so here are some tips and tricks.

    Use products with good-for-you ingredients. Shinso skincare products are a great option for detoxing your skin from chemicals, bacteria and oils and replenishing them with ingredients that are good for you. These ingredients include various minerals, deep sea water and more.

    Drink plenty of water. You’ll want to stay hydrated to maintain the balance in your skin, so make sure to drink 8 glasses or more of water per day. Water will also flush the toxins out of your skin, which is key when detoxing. Also look for fruits and veggies, which are full of water, and add those into your diet.

    Use clean makeup & brushes. Did you know that expired makeup or dirty, not-cleaned brushes can cause skin problems? To combat this, bi-annually go through your makeup collection and throw away anything that’s expired or has changed texture, color or scent. Then wash your makeup brushes in makeup brush cleaner, or a gentle soap and water mixture.

    Give yourself a facial. Full facials include exfoliation of dead skin, a deep cleansing to remove dirt, debris and blackheads and then extremely precise moisturizer. Indulge in quality products and pamper yourself during this time- you deserve it!

  • Gentle Cleansing for Winter

    December 11th, 2014



    We are approaching the harsh winter months, which means you need to make sure you are properly preparing and taking care of your skin. By using gentle cleansers, exfoliators and protectants, you will be on your way to great skin.

    Shinso Essence is the perfect gentle serum that works to heal chapped areas, such as your face, hands and lips. It rejuvenates and tightens your skin, while it goes to work on the deepest layers to boost collagen production. Shinso Essence is oil, chemical, fragrance free, and paraben free, so there’s no need to worry about irritation.

    When using an exfoliator, you’ll want to chose a gentle one. A harsh exfoliant can physically hurt your skin and give a ruddy, red appearance. Try to exfoliate less than usual in winter as well to reduce the irritation.

    Replace your daily moisturizer with something that works harder, something more intense. Products such as ointments and creams have a thicker texture that works to deeply moisturize the skin. Look for ingredients such as petroleum and ceramides, which work to prevent the loss of moisture already in the skin. Ingredients such as glycerin and sorbitol work to attract moisture from the environment to restore the skin’s balance and reduce dryness.

     

  • Holiday Skincare Gifts

    December 10th, 2014



    With the holidays right around the corner, more and more shoppers are out shopping for the perfect gifts. Women are sometimes known as being “hard to buy for”, but we know that one way to a woman’s heart is great skin. While you can’t actually give the gift of great skin, you can help along the way with the following gifts.

    A trip to the spa. Nothing puts a woman’s mind at ease like a nice, relaxing trip to the spa. She can get a massage, treat herself to a wax and opt for a deep-cleansing facial. At-home facial and spa treatments are great, but let her indulge in the best of the best by having her see a professional. Most spas or facial salons offer gift certificates that can be easily purchased online or at the front desk.

    Shinso Skincare products. Your wife, girlfriend, mother or sister might not usually like to treat herself to quality skincare products, so why not surprise her with the gift of Shinso Skincare products. Whether it’s Essence, Mist or Glow, there is a Shinso product for her specific needs.

    A gift card to your local beauty or department store. Specialty beauty stores carry unique brands and products that are hard to find at drugstore or supermarkets, while department stores carry high-end brands that are hard to find. A gift card to one of these places ensures your special friend that she can get whichever product she wants, while you don’t have to worry about getting a gift receipt to return it.
