Pregnancy is such a beautiful miracle and is undoubtedly one of the most precious times in life, with the imminent arrival of a new baby along with all the joy and excitement that entails.
However, you want to be mindful of what you are putting on your skin to ensure you are keeping yourself and your baby safe. In this blog, we dive deep into all your skincare-related pregnancy questions to reveal the safest ways to skincare during this exciting time in a woman's life. While there are no specific rules to follow regarding skincare during pregnancy, our resident esthetician shares general guidelines for pregnancy-safe skincare practices.
Start With A Solid Foundation
The first step to building anything is starting with a solid foundation. We recommend starting with a simple business plan. Write down your vision and ask yourself questions. Would you like to sell your skincare products wholesale, direct to consumer, or both?
There has been a lot of buzz on social media lately about whether or not an eye cream is necessary. Here, our resident aesthetician explains all we need to know about eye creams, why she recommends using one, and how to choose a result-driven eye cream.
The Importance of Eye Cream
Once we understand how delicate the skin is around our eyes, we can better care for it. The skin around the eye area is thinner and more sensitive than the skin on the rest of your face. Did you know that the first signs of aging often become visible around the eyes?
Are you passionate about skin health, skincare, and helping others solve their skin issues? Then maybe it's time to consider starting your private label skincare line. In this blog, we will go over three tips to help you launch your skincare brand.
Define Your Brand
Your brand is your business's personality. Have you ever seen a business and loved it's content, what they stand for, and their overall "vibe"? That is their band. A strong brand will lay the foundation for the rest of your business and get you set up for success in the long run. If you need help you can always hire a specialist to start the branding process and help your vision come to life!
What Is Vitamin C?
Vitamin C is also known as ascorbic acid, though when added to private label skincare formulas it can come in many different forms with different names (pro tip: we use an extra stable form of vitamin C in our formulas called sodium ascorbyl phosphate). Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant used throughout the body for a number of necessary functions - including those that affect the skin.
What are fruit acids in skincare?
The word acid may seem scary when your delicate skin is involved, but there is no need for concern. Fruit acids found in skincare products are part of the alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) group. Like our skin, fruit acids also fall on the acidic end of the scale, typically ranging from three to four, making them gentle on the skin. Don't let the word acid steer you away from this result-driven ingredient.
Limit Sun Exposure.
We can blame the sun for many skin concerns, so no matter what time of the year, protect your skin from sun exposure. Our resident esthetician recommends using sunscreen and a vitamin C serum daily (rain or shine).
