Iconic Ceramide Capsules relaunch after 25 years!

Iconic Ceramide Capsules relaunch after 25 years!

I’d like to address the Iconic Ceramide Capsules… it has been relaunched after 25 years!

Ceramide Capsules Daily Youth Restoring Serum\Advanced Ceramide Capsules Daily Youth Restoring Serum (60 piece). [/caption]As a market leader in ceramide technology, Elizabeth Arden is now introducing the next generation of their iconic and best-selling capsules: Advanced Ceramide Capsules Daily Youth Restoring Serum ($98 for 90 capsules/$78 for 60 capsules).

 The new amped up formula delivers triple the anti-aging power to enhance skin’s barrier repair function, increase moisturization within the surface of the skin, and minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Elizabeth Arden was the first to introduce the best-selling, single dose beauty capsule concept more than 27 years ago and the petite packaging is equally as groundbreaking as is the serum housed inside. The capsule itself is airtight to protect the integrity and potency of the formula without the use or need for preservatives. Moreover, the capsule material is vegetable based, 100% biodegradable and TSA-friendly!

How Has The Formula Changed?

Skin Barrier Repair Ingredients:

· Enhanced Ceramide Lipid Complex (ECLX): combines Ceramides 1, 3 & 6 to help support skin’s own natural protective barrier against moisture loss, and help to retexturize, exfoliate, and smooth skin. Ceramides 3 & 6 are both new to the formula.

· Increased Fatty Acids: help maintain the integrity of the skin’s lipid barrier

· New Cholesterol: helps retain moisture levels and support the stratum corneum, protecting skin from dehydration

· Increased Phytosphingosine: allow the skin itself to produce the ceramides it needs

· New Sea Fennel Extract: enhances skin cell renewal as well as increase luminosity and skin smoothness

· Moisturizing Ingredients:

~New Botanical Complex Technology: alfalfa Extract, lipids from olives and hydrocarbons from coconut oil reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, increase hydration & soothe skin

· Anti-Aging Ingredients:

~New Tsubaki Oil: rich in Oleic Acid, Vitamins and Omegas it helps to improve elasticity and moisture levels

~Increased Retinyl Palmitate: smoothes lines and wrinkles and helps support natural collagen for a firmer look. Improves skin’s clarity for a more even-toned appearance.

Advanced Ceramide Capsules Daily Youth Restoring Serum launched January 2017 and is available on

Beauty travel essentials: Don’t leave home without them 

Beauty travel essentials: Don’t leave home without them 
Beauty Examiner interviews VS model Erin Heatherton

I interviewed a Victoria Secret model once and she said that traveling can take a toll on the condition of the skin, especially traveling by planes due to the high altitudes. The products listed below will provide some ease to the skin moisturization , tone and elasticity.

Over time flying in high altitudes take a toll on the skin

Even the most hydrated skin can dry out on a plane. Keep skin looking fresh and dewy with a quick spritz of La Roche-Posay Thermal Spring Water (1.8oz $9.99), which is 100% pure natural spring water. The soothing water tones and refreshes skin, with a soft mist. La Roche-Posay Thermal Spring Water is perfect for a quick boost of hydration. Also appropriate for anti-inflammatory care following in-office procedures like chemical peels, laser resurfacing and microdermabrasion.

The fatigue of holiday travel can cause eyes to look tired under puffiness. Obagi ELASTIderm Eye Complete Complex Serum ($99) reduces the appearance of puffiness and includes caffeine to energize and revitalize skin. The Obagi ELASTIderm Eye Complete Complex Serum has a soothing, innovative stainless steel rollerball that applies serum to cool and gently massage eye area. Great way to perk up eyes after a long trip.

For those who want to travel light, leave all the bottles at home and pack one product, Vichy Aqualia Thermal Dynamic Hydration Rich Cream ($31.00), Replenishing and soothing 48-hour moisturizer in a rich, refreshing cream. For deep comfort and a fresh complexion that lasts.

Traveling can wreak havoc on your skin, and pimples can pop up mid-flight! Dermablend Quick-Fix Concealer SRP $23, Macy’s is a full coverage concealer for moderate to major localized skin flaws and imperfections in an instant. The improved lightweight formula with high purity pigments offers improved skin tone shades and texture, giving skin an even, natural complexion. Available in 10 shades to perfectly match any skin tone, Quick-Fix provides buildable coverage that won’t enhance the appearance of wrinkles or pores, and leaves skin soft and comfortable.

Traveling is a germy situation, and hand sanitizers are a must! But some hand sanitizers can dry out and chaff the skin. Jurlique Moisturizing Hand Sanitiser ($10.00) kills 99.9% of germs naturally and is free of Sodium lauryl sulfate, parabens, PEG’s, artificial colors, and artificial fragrances. Plus, unlike most sanitizers it’s designed with innovative moisturizing technology that  leaves skin feeling soft, silky clean and smooth.

So before you make that trip to the airport… be traveling ready… travel smart and travel lite.🏖💄💋. This blog post was brought to you by:

I am in the relaxing mood, so I want to try  lavender aromatherapy.

Rejuvenated skin…what a feeling!

A soothing treat!!! The Lavender treatment helps to do-stress and pamper your skin with this mask rich in lavender essential oil. As the mask gently cleanses, tones and calms tired skin, the natural scent of lavender will infuses your sense leaving you with the 3 R’s…feeling Refreshed, Revitalized and Relaxed.

This 6-pack is so much fun! Over a 6-week period explore the different facial masks and see the difference in your skin.

Let’s get started! Here are the easy steps:

  1. Simply cleanse your face with warm water.

Prepare the skin by gently cleaning with warm water.

2. Apply the mask using your fingertips.

Used the fingertips to apply facial mask.

3. Relax and enjoy for up to 15 minutes while the lavender goes to work! That in itself is peaceful and calming.

Relax and wait for 15 minutes.

4. Rinse with warm water and gently pat dry.

Pat the skin dry.

Let your skin enjoy the pampering treatment. Follow-up with a toner and a moisturizer. Relax and enjoy your refreshing and revitalized skin.
