Most likely your skincare isn't working to it's maximum potential because it's not penetrating deep enough into your pores. Exfoliation plays such an important part in sloughing off dead skin cell buildup and allowing new ones to resurface. The least amount of "blockage" your skincare has of getting to that pore the better your products will work. This works hands down on the rest of our face but the eye area is totally seperate as the skin around it is a lot more thin and sensitive. This is where an ingenious product has come out that will allow your eye serum to penetrate deep into the pores, The Clarisonic Black Opal Sonic Infusion System. This breakthrough in eye care uses the same sonic technology seen in it's popular facial cleansing family, Clarisonic, to instantly smoothe and hydrate the eye area. The Black Opal comes with the Anti-Aging Sea Serum although you can also use any eye serum you like. Simply pump a tiny bit into the domed out sponge, turn it on and gently put it over the chosen eye in circular motions. The micro massage action is allowing the pores to open and deliver your chosen serum beneath the surface. After just 4 weeks there will be a noticeable improvement in skin's elasticity, fine lines and brighter eye area!Read More »

Although applying body oil was known by ancient Romans and Hindis to be an excellent skin care regimen, many modern American women would probably cringe at the idea of adding oil to their skin. After all, each of us has seen dozens of commercials despairing oily, greasy skin. For years, advertisers have tried to convince us that our beauty routines should remove as much oil as possible from the skin, urging us to instead use lotions as moisturizers. However, many dermatologists and beauty experts now believe this approach is somewhat misguided, given the importance of oil in skin health.
Oil is so important for profiting and waterproofing the skin that the body produces its own oil. This oil is secreted by sebaceous glands that cover every inch of the body save the palms and the soles. Some individuals’ oil-producing glands are overactive, so they have oily skin. Others suffer perpetually dry skin because their sebaceous glands are under-active. In both cases, applying an oil such as Rodin olio lusso as a moisturizer actually normalizes the body’s natural production of sebum oil.
Ironically, many contemporary skin care products actually cause irritated, oily skin. By removing the body’s natural oil, they trigger the sebaceous glands to overproduce. These glands go berserk when they detect a complete lack of oil in the skin. Not understanding this, many women simply apply more drying skin products – alarming the sebaceous glands again. And the whole vicious cycle starts over.
In contrast, applying oil is a way to reclaim balance using the body’s own natural techniques. Applying a pure product such as Rodin body oil can help anyone achieve more naturally radiant skin.
Furthermore, oil-based products can deliver potent essential oils that foster luminous skin. Rodin body oil uses an apricot kernel and sweet almond oil base to deliver essential oils including calendula and arnica. Apricot kernel oil is known to penetrate quickly, leaving skin feeling dry and not at all greasy. It is excellent for the skin because it contains a large amount of vitamin E, which helps skin retain its elasticity. Apricot oil also contains vitamin A, which is excellent for mature, sensitive or aging skin. Sweet almond oil is another emollient in Rodin olio lusso; it softens and moisturizes the skin. Both calendula and arnica are known for their soothing, healing qualities.Read More »
