Improve Your Skin While You Sleep

Your nighttime skin care routine plays an important role in the condition of your skin. Those eight hours of sleep (well, maybe more like 5 – 8 hours depending on life’s busy schedule) are prime time for your body to relax, recuperate, and repair.  Help your skin to take advantage of your slumber with some pre-sleep face prep.

Wash Away the Day

I never go to bed without washing my face. My go-to nightly face wash is HollyBeth Organics’ Chamomile Foaming Cleanser. For normal to dry skin, this face wash beautifully cleanses the skin without stripping it of moisture.  100% USDA certified organic, HollyBeth’s Chamomile Foaming Face Cleanser is made from the goodness of Mother Nature, meaning there are no chemicals or artificial ingredients that will linger behind on your skin. Skin is naturally cleansed, balanced, and prepped for the next step in my nighttime skin care routine.

Combat Irritation

With blemish-prone skin, I like a little extra insurance to protect me from future breakouts. HollyBeth Organics’ Marigold Bergamot Dry Oil is my solution. A few drops applied to my freshly washed skin protect and repair from below the surface, maintaining the skin’s natural balance while combating irritation and acne. And because it is dry oil, there is no greasy film or heavy buildup. It sinks directly into the skin and won’t clog pores.

Nourish the Eye Area

The final step in my nighttime skin care routine is HollyBeth Organics’ Eye Cream. A fan favorite and best seller, HollyBeth’s Eye Cream hydrates, smoothes, and invigorates the eye area, allowing you to wake up refreshed and dark circle free. My husband and I won’t go to bed without it!

Cleanse, protect, and nourish while you sleep with a little extra help from HollyBeth Organics’ 100 % USDA certified skin care solutions.

HollyBeth’s Three Favorite Skin Care Products for Traveling

Short-Sleeve Travel Weather is Around the Corner

When it’s a sunny, 60 degree day in February, you can’t help but long for short-sleeve shirt weather and spring road trips. Inspired by the surprise heat, HollyBeth and I couldn’t help but discuss our favorite places to travel to as we ate lunch today. Exotic beaches with white sand, classic cities home to great art and architecture, off-the-map locations promising fun and adventure, and familiar favorites full of good memories: we want to visit them all! Almost time to get those passports ready – and figure out what to pack.

Packing for a Trip

Ah, the process of packing for a trip. If you are anything like me, you want to pack your entire closet, because you may get the chance to break in those shoes you‘ve never worn, to wear that dress that has been begging for a night out, or use that cute rain jacket that just might come in handy – you see where I am going with this. Once the hypothetical outfit situations are covered, time to narrow down your toiletry bag.

With the skin care guru herself sitting next to me at lunch, I couldn’t resist asking her which HollyBeth Organics’ products are her favorite skin care products for traveling.

HollyBeth’s Must-Have Skin Care Products for Traveling

  1. Rose Geranium Toner – A few squirts of this flower-flavored beauty mist refreshes and rehydrates (and makes you smell good). An excellent pick-me-up when you have been traveling all day.
  2. Eye Cream – A HollyBeth Organics classic (the first product she created), this luxuriously silky cream keeps delicate skin hydrated and moisturized. The perfect eye refresher after a tiring day of adventures.
  3. Chamomile Foaming Cleanser – This gentle yet sudsy cleanser removes the day’s dirt and oil, leaving behind soothed, balanced skin. Great for all skin types, so everyone in your travel party can use it.

So now I know what I’m bringing with me on my next vacation!

double duty eye cream

The skin around your eyes is the first area to show signs of aging and the damaging effects of sun exposure, smoking, and environmental toxins. Why? Skin is thinnest around the eye area and as we age we lose muscle tone.  Sun exposure damages the elastin and collagen in your skin thus decreasing elasticity. Our customers swear by our eye cream and tell us that they have seen positive results around the eye using HollyBeth Organics eye cream loaded with camellia oil (uva protection properties) Vitamin E and jojoba oil. This is by far our number one seller. Customers e-mail us telling us they swear by it for cuticle cream and cold cream – what do you use it for?

under eyes' circles

We get so many calls from women about our eye cream and if our eye cream will diminish and/or erase the dark circles under the eyes. Dark circles under the eyes are attributed to so many different reasons: tanning, tiredness, allergies, heredity, smoking, eczema, drinking and according to the Mayo Clinic can even be caused the loss of weight. I like what the Mayo Clinic recommends as I have always said this: Camouflage. The right concealer can do just that – hide dark circles. If the circles under your eye are bluish, use a peach-colored concealer, not one that’s white or gray. Avoid scented products and those containing salicylic or glycolic acid, which can irritate delicate eye tissue, making redness and swelling worse. Having said this, I do believe that our eye cream (camellia oil, jojoba oil) provides the moisture and anti-oxidants in Vitamin E to keep the under eye area healthy. . This is our number one seller and I don’t believe it would be number 1 were it not for our wonderful customers who clearly feel they are getting results. Always use your ring finger and start on the outside of the eye and come in when using eye cream.
