Krystle Skin – A New Specialty Line

2 03 2012

I am pleased to announce that we are almost ready with a new luxury line developed exclusively for Krystle Skin.  The products we are formulating for Krystle Kelly, a model and entrepreneur from California, will be based on three lines; a Lotus Lie, a Tiare Line, and a Rose Line.  The products have been in development and testing for about two months and we are now in the final phases of solidifying the signature scents.  All of the scents derived in all three lines are created using Essential Oils and other natural products, there are no synthetic fragrances allowed.

The Tiare line will be the deepest line with butters, and creams, foaming sugar scrub gentle enough for your face, bath salts, bath milks, body oils and bath oils just to name a few.  The signature scent for this line is based on Monoi de Tahiti.  This oil is truly fabulous.  It is made in Tahiti with pure coconut oil infused with the Tiare Flower which is a gardenia from French Polynesia.  It is sweet and subtle and imparts so many benefits.  Additions will be Jasmine, and Ylang Ylang, Bergamot and the slightest touch of citrus.  This is a sweet gentle and yet subtle flower scent that will invoke visions of the islands without that “suntan” smell.  This line will meet all the requirements for certification as Monoi de Tahiti.

The Lotus Line is the intensive treatment line.  Lotus is a very unique and exotic fragrance that can only be found in the true absolutes from the east.  There is an intensive facial serum with Argan, Camellia, Meadowfoam, and B-3 among other goodies to help prevent aging.  It is never too early to take great care of your skin.  If you are 20, 30, 40 and beyond this serum will do wonders for your skin’s elasticity, cell regeneration, moisture, and wrinkle reduction or prevention.  There will also be a companion facial cleanser made with Shea butter in a souffle style matrix so that you may easily use simply your fingers to cleanse the face and not have to pull and drag the skin with a pouf or wash cloth.

The Rose line will be based on Rose Otto which is the purest Rose scent available.  It is not overwhelmingly Rose like some of the products you see on the shelves made with fragrance.  We will have one very unique product in this line called Rose Petals.  These are real live Rose petals dipped in a clear moisturizing Rose soap and dried to be used one petal at a time.  You have never seen anything like this and will make a truly unique gift or guest bath addition.  A toner will be in this line with Rose and Carrot Seed and Chamomile and NO alcohol.

So as you can see we have been very busy lately in development of this new exclusive luxury line for Krystle Skin.  You will be able to find my products only at www.KrystleSkin.com.  I will have a link to this website permanently on my web page so you can easily find them.  These products have intrigued me and I will be developing some of the same type products such as bath salts, and body oils for my own lines in citrus, earthy notes, and different flowery notes for all of you who love these lines already.

I am very excited about this project and hope that all my followers will try some of them when we are all done and they are ready for sale.  Keep awake and watch the blog or my website www.MBABodyEssential.com for announcements and new products.

Have a great Weekend,

Ann

How to avoid winter dry skin

6 12 2011

Well winter is here!  Today in Colorado Springs it is currently -3 and the furnace is running at full tilt.  This situation will continue now for at least another 3 months or so and it is not just in Colorado.  Even in the deep south, it is cold and furnaces are running.

All of this dry heat inside and cold dry air outside has a negative impact on your skin.  You can combat these effects with just a few simple skin care changes.

  • Our bodies are primarily water.  In the winter the dry heat in the house and the cold dry weather outside suck the moisture from your body.  We all have heard that you should drink at least 8 eight ounce glasses of water a day.  In the winter it is important to increase that amount.  Many people don’t drink enough water as it is, and soda, coffee, and alcohol do not count.  In fact these drinks will further dehydrate your body and your skin.  So drink at least two more glasses of water each day than you normally do and it will significantly help ward off dry winter skin.
  • Nothing feels better than a hot bath right?  A soak in a hot tub is fabulous after a cold day.  Well hot water strips your skin of moisture.  So a better option in the bath is to use warm water instead.  This will limit the stripping effects.  No hope to correct a hot tub soak, but, well…that just can’t be helped.  So a warm bath instead of a hot shower.  And adding some Essential Oils or a Carrier Oil such as Hemp Seed Oil or Grapeseed Oil can be beneficial.  But be careful if adding the Carrier Oils as they will leave the bath oily and slippery.  Better add a little Baking Soda with the Essential Oil and you will be highly surprised how soft your skin feels.  Also do not rub to dry off but pat and that will keep the skin from being stretched and creating small fissures in the skin that can eventually become flaky.
  • Exfoliate at least weekly.  If you are prone to dry skin you may want to exfoliate all over twice a week.  Be sure to use a gentle product like Sweet Sunshine Sugar Scrub or CranberrySpyce Sugar Scrub (www.MBABodyEssential.com ).  I exfoliate face, arms, and legs daily during the winter with my products because they are gentle, foaming and moisturizing all in one.  I have doing this since I started in May 2011 and have no flaking or dryness at all.  It is wonderful!
  • Use a high moisture content body wash and not a bar soap.  Bar soaps generally will dry out your skin due to the high lye content necessary to create the bar style soap.
  • Finally moisturize extensively.  A heavier product is necessary during the winter months to offset all of the negative impacts your skin receives from dry and cold air and the continued temperature changes you expose your skin too.  Be careful to not just add more of a light weight moisturizer which could potentially clog pores and create a whole new problem to deal with.  The more natural, quick absorbing and thick the product the better.  It will also provide a barrier to help seal in the moisture.  The best time to apply is directly after a bath or shower (warm of course).   Many moisturizers do not provide additional moisture but only seal in the moisture already in the skin.  Our Body Butters being pure butter and oils do add moisture to the skin, are thick and soothing without leaving your skin greasy.  We use light oils and Shea and Hemp Seed Butters so the combination gives quick penetration, you don’t have to wait 30 minutes to dress, and leaves a well moisturized barrier to the weather.  Try a citrus scent like Sun Glow Body butter that smells light and fresh going on and fades quickly so it does not compete with your perfume or other scents.  Or try one that has a lasting scent like Champagne Dreams or Haunting Meadow.  These scents fade leaving just a trace that you will notice and those closest to you will as well.

I hope that these suggestions will give you some ideas of how to combat the dry skin problems we all encounter in the winter months.   Give yourself the sinfully angelic skin you deserve or give it to a loved one.  Christmas is almost here order soon before stock runs out.  www.MBABodyEssential.com

Until next time.
