What Dry Brushing Does for the Skin Posted on 03 Feb 11:02 , 0 comments

Dry brushing is a process of brushing dry skin with a natural brush. The action helps remove old skin cells, leaving your body feeling softer and smoother than it did before. Dry brushing is done before showering using a soft sweeping motion from the feet toward the heart until the entire body has been brushed. It’s important to not brush your face with a brush as the skin is very delicate and requires a different type of care.

Some of the benefits regular dry brushing delivers include:

  • Soften skin. Exfoliating regularly helps loosen and remove dead skin cells. Buying a long handled dry brush helps you get to the hard to reach spots on your body. After a few days, you’ll notice a distinct difference in how your skin feels. It may even look younger.
  • Cleaner pores. Remove dirt, oil, and residue from our body. This prevents your pores from getting clogged. You’ll see fewer breakouts because of your decision to dry brush.
  • Support of the lymphatic system. The body’s immune system consists of organs, lymph nodes, ducts, and vessels. This helps transport lymph in the body. Dry brushing helps nudge them along by stimulating lymph flow. This helps with detoxification as the lymphatic system is a natural cleaner.
  • Breakdown of cellulite. Dry brushing breaks up cellulite for some people. It’s a natural way to deal with the fatty deposits under the skin. Dry brushing is a cost effective way to help yourself look and feel your very best.

Slather moisturizer onto your skin after showering for best results. You’ll find our Maywood Creek Essentials Facial Moisturizer soothing. It helps lock moisture into facial tissue. It consists of organic products such as sunflower oil, avocado oil, shea oil, and waxes that are naturally derived. It’s handcrafted in small batches to maintain its quality.


Five Bad Skin Care Habits You Need to Give Up Right Away Posted on 20 Jan 12:02 , 0 comments

 

The body’s largest organ is the skin. It serves many purposes in addition to protecting your muscles, tendons, veins, bones, and vital organs from injury, illness, and UV radiation. It also serves as a barrier to water which is why it has a tendency to absorb oils better than it does H2O.

How well do you care for your skin? Do you have some bad habits that you’d like to break? If you do, you’re not alone.

Many men and women have room for improvement when it comes to caring for their skin. They either neglect it entirely or spend too much time tanning it. If this sounds like you, it’s time to change your ways.

Here are five bad habits that you do to your skin:

  1. Going to bed in your makeup. For as much time as you put into making yourself up, you should spend equal time removing your makeup at night.
  2. Not cleansing and moisturizing your face daily. Use Maywood Creek Essentials Rose Clay Facial Cleanser or Organic Face Cleanser in Citrus Herb daily to remove dirt, makeup, and impurities from your face.
  3. Spending time outdoors without sunscreen. It doesn’t matter how used to the sun you are, you should always give your skin ample protection by choosing the right SPF for you.
  4. Taking too hot of showers or baths. Although it feels good, hot water is very drying and requires a lot of moisturizing.
  5. Not exfoliating properly. You’ve got to address that dry skin regularly to keep it from looking and feeling bad.

Are you guilty of going to bed with a full face of makeup on? Do you rush out the door without thinking about sunscreen or applying foundation with SPF in it? When was the last time you used a loofah or brush to exfoliate your body?

It’s time to put some effort into your skin care routine!


How to Avoid Over-Tweezing Your Eyebrows Posted on 23 Dec 11:30 , 0 comments

A perfectly tweezed brow looks beautiful. It enhances the appearance of eye make-up, too. If you have a tendency to go overboard when tweezing your eyebrows, there are some things you can do to prevent future mishaps. Consider this your guide to using tweezers properly.

You can make your eyebrows look their best by doing the following:

  • Choose the right tool. There are a number of different types of tweezers to choose from. Some are specifically designed for removing ingrown hairs. Others have a rounded or slanted tip. Decide which works best for you and make sure to put the cap on them to keep the tweezers sharp between uses.
  • Tweeze after you’ve gotten out of the shower. Warm water softens hairs making them easier to pull. After you step out of the shower, take a few extra minutes to pluck any stray hairs you see.
  • Know where the arch should stop. The experts say that your brows should begin above your tear ducts. The outer side of your iris should like up with the peak of the brow. The end point should then fall from the outer corner of the eye at a 45 degree angle.
  • Create a shape you can live with. Use an eyebrow pencil that is the same color as your brows to help shape the eyebrow further. You can even purchase a stencil that helps you achieve the perfect look.
  • Reduce redness. Use cortisone cream to reduce inflammation. Dab a small amount on the area immediately after tweezing. Be careful not to get it in your eyes.

A good set of tweezer prevents you from over-tweezing your brows. They’re sharp enough to remove unwanted hair with ease. If your old tweezers are impossible to use without injuring yourself, opt to buy a new pair from Castle Rock Essential Products. You’ll find a wide range of health and personal care products designed to meet your needs.


How to Choose the Right Kabuki Brush for Your Needs Posted on 11 Nov 11:07 , 0 comments

You don’t need to be a professional make-up artist to know the value of a Kabuki Brush. All you have to do is wear make-up and want a polished, finished look when you do. The right tools make it possible for you to enjoy a professional make-up artist finish without the cost.

Here’s how to choose the right Kabuki Brush for your needs:

  • Round. Covers larger areas of skin. This type of brush is ideal for applying mineral foundations and powders as well as blushes and bronzers. A long wooden handle with soft, dense bristles assures that the makeup glides onto the skin easily. It’s great for stippling, contouring, and blending, too.
  • Angled. Perfect for getting an airbrushed finish, this rush works well with liquid, mineral, powder, and cake makeup. It helps get close to the skin and cover imperfections. The bristles should be dense, making for a flawless look every time makeup is applied.
  • Flat Top. When you need to apply a lot of pigment to one area, this brush is best. Because the bristles don’t spread the way a round brush does, you get more makeup in one area. It allows you to follow the angles of the face better than with other types of brushes.

A Kabuki Brush should have bristles that are soft to the touch and a handle that feels comfortable yet sturdy to hold onto. It should feel great in your hands. It should apply makeup fluidly and evenly every time that you use it.

Buy the right Kabuki Brush for your needs. Castle Rock Essential Products carries a number of different brushes for you to choose from. Ours are vegan, cruelty-free, soft, and easy-to-clean. What more can you ask for from a Kabuki Brush?
