Know Your Skin Type

HollyBeth Luxury Rose Geranium Face Moisturizer

 

Many factors play a role in the condition of your skin, including hormones, climate, and age. It is important to recognize the state of your skin in order to find the right products to restore balance.

Dry Skin

Skin feeling dehydrated, tight, and flakey? You are experiencing dry skin, which indicates a lack of moisture. Overexposure to cold or heat, excess use of cleansing products, or a natural result of aging can leave your skin dehydrated. Go for hydrating cleansers and thicker moisturizers, while avoiding heavy toners and chemical-based products that zap oil production and dry out the skin.

Check out HollyBeth Organics’ Rose Geranium Face Moisturizer, the perfect face hydrator for those in need of extra moisture.

Oily Skin

Prone to a shiny t-zone area? Your body is over-producing sebum, on oily substance made by your sebaceous glands to protect against dryness. Hormone changes or exposure to heat may be responsible for oily skin. Go for lightweight products that won’t clog pores and natural ingredients like grapeseed that help regulate oil production. Try to avoid over-cleansing, as this can dry out the skin, encouraging your sebaceous glands to secrete more oil to compensate for the loss of moisture.

Try HollyBeth Organics’ Marigold Bergamot Dry Oil, a lightweight dry oil that quickly absorbs into the skin to restore balance and reduce oiliness – its antiseptic properties help fight acne as well!

Sensitive Skin

Notice your skin gets splotchy, irritated, or itchy when you change your beauty routine or experience a new environment? You may have sensitive skin, which can be caused by an allergy or reaction to extreme weather. Keep track of what irritates you and steer clear of products with foreign ingredients. Go for organic products with natural ingredients and keep it simple.

Use a cleanser like HollyBeth Organics’ Marigold Foaming Cleanser. It is gentle on skin while combating oil and removing makeup (and like all HollyBeth Organics products, it is 100% USDA Certified Organic!).

Most of us will experience all of these skin conditions, so make sure to maintain balance with the help of the right products.

Happy Weekend – Let’s Go to Arabia Mountain

It is a beautiful Saturday afternoon here in Atlanta. The sun is shining, the sky is clear, and rumor has it the temperature is going to reach 64 degrees today. What a delightful surprise for the last weekend in January, especially since there was snow on the ground only a week ago.

Arabia Mountain

Time to take advantage of this fortuitous break from the cold and head outside!  And a day like today is perfect for a trip to Arabia Mountain. About 25 minutes outside of downtown Atlanta, this rock mountain’s unique topography hosts beautiful plant life, water formations, and landscapes that make you feel like you’re on another planet. This little piece of outer space has both bike and hiking trails, perfect for a full day of outdoor fun (and dogs are welcome, too!).

Wash Away the Dirt

After a day of navigating rocks, water, and hiking trails, you may be feeling a little sweaty and grimy. For those of us who are acne prone or have sensitive skin, sweat and oil can lead to a rash or breakouts. Wash the dirt away with HollyBeth Organics’ Cleansing Oil. Made with camellia, avocado, and lavender oils, this natural cleanser is antiseptic and antioxidant rich, healing and soothing while hydrating the skin. Calm skin irritations and knock out bacteria while infusing your skin with moisture.

No matter what you get into this weekend, make sure to give your skin some much-needed rest and relaxation. Every part of us – including our skin! – needs some time to unwind and regroup.

Have a great weekend!
