Ayla Offers Winter Skincare Tips for Dry, Acne-Prone Skin

Luzern Laboratories Hydra-Enzyme Mask

San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) January 28, 2014

Combat that dry, dull, acne-prone skin with natural skincare tips and products. Ayla (, an online natural skincare boutique, offers advice from top skincare experts and product recommendations for those who are looking to give their skin, particularly dry and breakout-prone complexions, the relief and nourishment it craves.

Thrashing winds, dry air, chilly temperatures, and indoor heating all can suck extra moisture from skin—leaving skin looking dull, flaky, or inflamed. Dry skin with acne is particularly challenging to treat because most acne treatments are made for oily skin. Luckily, top New York City facialist Julia March provides Ayla with a few cures and preventive measures to combat winter woes.

Here are Julia’s top five tips for dry skin with acne:

1)    Once or twice a week, use a salicylic acid or white willow bark cleanser rather than a leave-on acne treatment. Leave-on medication typically dries out skin even more and causes further breakouts. (Medik8’s betaGel is an exception and works well on dry skin as a spot treatment).

2)    Wash face with plain lukewarm water in the morning and use a creamy cleanser on alternate evenings when not using a salicylic acid cleanser.

3)    Keep the rest of your regimen simple and gentle: just moisturize with a lotion or light cream, such as MyHavtorn’s Organic Face Cream during the day.

4)    At night, take a break from creams when breakouts are occurring to let skin breathe and encourage its natural detoxification process. Instead, use an oil or a gel mixed with oil. (Great choices include The Organic Pharmacy’s Antioxidant Gel and Kahina’s Argan Oil.)

5)    Hydrate and nourish skin with a clay mask mixed with raw honey either once a week or bi-weekly if skin feels very dry.

Julia also recommends using a weekly hydrating mask to keep skin balanced and nourished, such as the new Hydra-Enzyme Mask from Luzern Laboratories. Introduced just in time for the coldest months of winter, Luzern’s Hydra-Enzyme Mask leaves skin hydrated and radiant. Naturally made with exfoliating pumpkin enzyme as well as moisturizing hyaluronic acid, organic sweet almond oil, and olive-derived squalene, this mask helps dissolve dead surface cells and infuse skin with hydration for a brighter, suppler complexion. It also contains stabilized vitamin C and organic licorice extract to leave skin firmer and diminish the appearance of visible lines and wrinkles. This mask is excellent for all skin types, particularly those dealing with clogged pores, dullness, and dehydration. With buddleja davidii extract to fight free radicals and fight inflammation, it’s also great for sensitive skin.

Newest Best-Selling Skin Care Using Key Antioxidants to Repair Sun Damage and Reverse the Signs of Aging at

Antioxidants work by penetrating the top layer of skin

Miami, FL (PRWEB) July 12, 2012

Antioxidants work by penetrating the top layer of skin and turn free radicals into harmless molecules. Thus preventing the signs of aging, stimulating collagen, repairing damaged skin cells, and eliminating blemishes or imperfections.

Vitamin E, also known as Tocopherol, is a moisturizing antioxidant that protects the skin barrier from damage. It acts as an obstacle, fighting free radicals and environmental factors from damaging skin. It is found in neck and decolletage creams because these areas tend to sag and wrinkle over time due to sun exposure and age. Pevonia Ligne Esthebuste Restore Neck and Bust Concentrate $ 70.51, offers it in a concentration for maximum absorption on skin.

Retinol is a Vitamin A derivative. It is considered one of the best anti-aging ingredients because of its long list of benefits. Retinol treats fine lines, wrinkles, sun spots, dullness, crepiness, sagging skin, hyperpigmentation and various other signs of aging and skin concerns. It is found in night serums like the DDF Anti-Aging Restoring Night Serum , $ 86.04 , because skin exposure in the daytime can cause skin damage in the form of spots. Another reason it is recommended for overnight use is because skin absorbs the most when it is at rest. Thus allowing for maximum effectiveness from the ingredient.

 The beauty consultants recommend serums to their clients because the stronger doses allow faster penetration than creams.   Vivite Daily Antioxidant Facial Serum $ 37.25, contains  a mix of extracts from pomegranate, green tea, chamomile, and contains glycolic acid to help diminish discoloration.  Pomegranate is an antioxidant protecting skin against some UV damage that can lead to wrinkles, sagging and skin cancer.  Green tea is an antioxidant that protects against free radicals – helping to enhance skin elasticity, stimulate collagen, and soothe inflammation.  ” Skin that has a sprinkling of freckles, fine lines around the eyes and mouth.  I recommend this wonderful to serum to clients who are not ready to dive into the world of age creams and skin treatments, but want a little proof of how choosing great skin care can make them look a little younger again,” stated Rebecca, lead beauty consultant at  

Idebenone is a synthetic antioxidant that reduces inflammation and UV damage to skin cells that can cause wrinkles and hyperpigmentation. It is popularly found in Prevage MD Anti- Aging Serum, $ 67.00, because this anti-aging serum contains the highest concentration of idebenone found in any skin care product. “This skin product may actually be the best-selling skin care treatment at I talk to clients who have used it for years and praise its benefits!”, stated Rebecca. The antioxidant helps promote firmer, smoother, and brighter skin. It works good with all skin types, but ideal for dry, mature and aging skin. is a leading online retailer of professional beauty products for hair and skin care needs.
