Sanafect Sample Bundle: Natural Home and Body Care

Posted by RainShadow Labs on 12/21/2020 to Lifestyle
Many of us have shifted to a mindful and conscious approach when it comes to personal care products and cosmetics. But what a lot of us haven't thought much about is our daily household products! Or, maybe you have and are not sure where to start! With a worldwide pandemic currently happening, what better time than now to shift our household products to more natural options. Many restaurants and businesses are asking us to apply hand sanitizer before entering the building and to take extra precautions. The constant use of harsh and drying hand sanitizers and soap can severely dry your skin out. Which is why we formulated our private label Sanafect product line. 

Lash & Brow Serum: How to Have Lush Brows & Lashes

Posted by RainShadow Labs's Resident Esthetician on 12/21/2020 to Cosmetics
There is something about glowing radiant skin and lush lashes and brows that I have always found to be my top priority in my beauty regime. Long lashes instantly lift your look and enhance your features, not to mention they look incredibly gorgeous. Don't worry, even if you weren't born with naturally long lashes, you can still have your dream lashes and brows. Grow Max Lash and Brow Serum is a spectacular product that you apply to your lash line and brows to enhance growth and shine. While the market has a lot of different options, you will need to be mindful of the ingredient list and find a safe, private label lash and brow serum that gives you the best results. The last thing we need is to apply a product with shady ingredients right on our eye area. Eyelash and brow serums are applied morning and night to your upper lash line and full brow, and results may take up to three months.

Peptides in Skincare

Posted by RainShadow Labs' Resident Esthetician on 12/14/2020 to Lifestyle
Peptides are one of those ingredients that are getting a lot of buzz in the industry lately. So what are they, and what do they exactly do for the skin? Peptides are amino acids that are the building blocks of specific proteins needed by the skin, like collagen and elastin. These proteins are the foundations of your skin and are responsible for its strength and resilience. Using eye cream, moisturizer, and serums that contain peptides can lead to firmer, more supple, and younger-looking skin. 

Why You Need To Be Masking Your Skin Weekly

Posted by RainShadow Labs on 11/23/2020 to Lifestyle
There is nothing quite like relaxing with a face mask on to level up your skincare regimen. Using a face mask in between facials can help you reach your skincare goals no matter your skin type. Like serums and moisturizers, a face mask is a skincare vehicle. It delivers highly concentrated actives and vitamins to the skin to improve the overall quality of the skin's appearance. Face masks are occlusive - they create a physical barrier that locks in beneficial ingredients, allowing them to work more efficiently. Using a face mask two times a week that’s suitable for your skin type can assist with better looking tone and smoother texture. Masking should follow cleansing, toning, and applying a facial toner. These steps clear away impurities and excess oil, provide a base layer of hydration, and prep your skin to better absorb the benefits of your face mask.

Eye Care, According to an Esthetician

Posted by RainShadow Labs' Resident Esthetician on 11/23/2020 to Private Label Skin Care
The skin around our eyes is significantly thinner and more fragile than the skin on the rest of our face. Meaning the eye area is incredibly delicate and more vulnerable to environmental stressors, dehydration, and premature aging. Simply put, we need to show extra care and love to our eye area! And luckily, there are serums, moisturizers, and other skincare products to help.

Serums: The Product That Changed My Skin Forever

Posted by RainShadow Labs' Resident Esthetician on 11/16/2020 to Private Label Skin Care
Serums were one of those products that I just wasn't sure I needed in my skincare regime. In all honesty, I wasn't quite entirely sure what their purpose was and if my skin needed them. That's when I did some research and purchased a few that were suitable for my skin type. Now I can't even imagine how I ever lived without them before! They helped me transform my problem skin (which can tend to look dull at times) into a dewy goddess-like complexion. Anyways, the main takeaway is that face serums rock and now a staple in my skincare regimen! 

Skincare How-To: The Double Cleansing Method

Posted by RainShadow Labs on 10/27/2020 to Lifestyle
Double Cleansing is a method that involves cleansing your face twice, once with an oil-based cleanser and second with a water-based cleanser. The concept behind the double cleansing method is to use cleansing oil to remove your makeup, excess sebum, and sunscreen. This initial step is supposed to clear the way for your regular facial cleanser to cleanse your skin instead of having to work its way through layers of makeup and sunscreen. The results are a more thorough cleanse without compromising the skin barrier.
