  • Getting that Post-Workout Glow

    How working up a sweat keeps your skin healthy.

    • Always remove your makeup prior to working out
    • Clean your face as soon after working out as possible
    • Rehydrating is an important step to keeping your skin fresh

    There is no doubt that hitting the gym for a daily sweat sesh has some serious benefits for your bod, but have you ever thought about what it can do for your skin?

    Getting a daily dose of exercise helps lower cortisol levels – a hormone released in response to stress that can lead to a breakdown in the collagen of the skin, eventually leading to wrinkles. In addition to bringing amazing stress relief, exercise leads to an increased production of collagen and ultimately, firmer, younger looking skin.

    Sweating is a natural way for your body to clear the dirt and toxins that accumulate in your pores and activating this process daily can contribute to that healthy glow we are all striving for. Think of it as a trip to the spa. According to Dr. Mauro Romita, a board-certified plastic surgeon and founder of Ajune Center for Beauty Synergy in New York City, exercise enhances circulation bringing blood flow and oxygen to the skin and increases the delivery of nutrients. This process helps repair damage from daily environmental insults like the sun.

    A few things to remember so your fitness routine doesn’t have a negative impact on your complexion:

    Always, always, remove your makeup. Working out with a face full of makeup is a recipe for clogged pores and a breakout reminiscent of pre-pubescence.

    Ditch the dirty duds. Hanging out in your sweaty gym clothes allows oil and grime to get comfortable, often resulting in body breakouts. Even if you can’t shower post-workout, freshen up with a cleansing wipe and switch to a fresh change of clothes.

    Moisturize. Intense exercise can be unforgiving on already sensitive skin (the skin on your face is more delicate than anywhere else on your body!). Rehydrating after your workout is an important step to in giving back what may have been lost through sweat.

    No more excuses, get moving and enjoy the benefits a healthy, fit body!

  • Look Good…Feel Better Virtual Workshop

    Join our charitable partner, Look Good…Feel Better for its first-ever live, virtual workshop! Look Good…Feel Better realizes that some cancer patients may not be able to attend the program’s two-hour workshops that are normally hosted in hospitals and cancer treatment centers. The virtual workshops will provide most of the benefits, but for those who are unable to attend in person, this new format will enable a patient to participate from the comfort of her own home, office or favorite coffee shop via a live streaming webcast!

    The Look Good…Feel Better workshop will offer tips, advice and instruction on dealing with treatment related hair loss, changes in skin, complexion and nails during cancer treatment.  The workshop will be facilitated by two top-notch volunteer beauty professionals–one of whom is a national Look Good… Feel Better trainer!

    With a portion of proceeds from the sale of each designated PINK Clarisonic cleansing system going to Look Good…Feel Better, as well as fan participation in campaigns such as the Autographed Mia Auction and the Facebook Like Campaign, Clarisonic has raised more than $1 million for the program. Most recently, we received help from Clarisonic’s Empowered Woman of the Year, Mila Kunis, in presenting a check for $250,000 to Look Good…Feel Better! We want to thank all of our customers and fans who have helped make all of this possible.

    We encourage you to learn more about the organization and its work by sitting in on the virtual workshop and making sure to inform anyone you know who might benefit from the Look Good…Feel Better program. We’d love to hear your comments after you’ve seen the webcast!

    Virtual Workshop: Tuesday, April 26th, 2011, 12:00-2:00pm EDT. Webcast will be archived for future viewing.

    The following video will give you a preview of what’s in store for the first-ever  Look Good…Feel Better workshop!
