“When it comes to supplements, the biggest difference is attention to safe natural ingredients,” Dr. Agin continues. “There are so many products for hair and nails that it is very hard for consumers to figure out which ones are reputable with safe ingredients. Without any governing body that weeds out the bad companies and products it is up to the consumers to figure this out. MONAT removes the guesswork for the consumer.”

Keep Your Skin And Hair Nourished During The Dry Summer Months!

Our favorite parts of summer might be the warm weather and sunshine but too much sun and heat can zap skin and hair of their natural moisture. To keep your skin glowing and vibrant when the temperatures soar, you’ll need to take extra precautions to protect your skin from dehydration. The combination of the sun, heat, extra sweating, exposure to sand and surf and chlorine from the pool can take a real toll on your skin and hair.
To prepare for summer and keep hair and skin radiant and healthy, here are seven tips for the summer months to keep your skin radiant and your hair glossy.
TIP #1: Shower or bathe in warm water
Hot water zaps moisture from your skin, so always shower or bathe in warm water. And only bathe once a day because too much time spent in the shower or tub can rob your skin of moisture. You should also avoid the hot tub because the hot water and chemicals are torture on your skin.

TIP #2: Use an oil after the sun for hydration
Oil? Yes, oil! A non-greasy, lightweight hydrating oil will act as a barrier to pollutants, bacteria and soothe sunburn. In fact, REJUVENIQE™ Oil Intensive provides healthy, enriching benefits for the skin and hair. It comes with a high concentration of vitamins, antioxidants and essential fatty acids that help lubricate, protect and hold in moisture. REJUVENIQE is super-nourishing so on the skin it combats flakes, dehydration and the dried-out sebum that clogs pores. When applied to the hair, REJUVENIQE reduces hair thinning and adds incredible volume with long-lasting shine, all without the damaging effects of silicone.
REJUVENIQE blends 13 significantly potent botanical oils from around the world that serve to enhance the effectiveness of its Abyssinian oil.

Also take advantage of nighttime, which is repair time. While you’re sleeping, your skin, hair and body work to right the wrongs of the day. So why not treat dry summer skin and hair before turning in? Apply some REJUVENIQE to the mid lengths and ends of your hair on the nights before you shampoo. This is a very effective and hydrating overnight hair treatment! And make sure to put a coal of oil on your face and décolleté too!

TIP #3: Always apply moisturizing lotion and oil after bathing, every time after you wash your hands and throughout the day as needed
The goal is not only to add moisture to your skin but to lock moisture in to keep your skin from drying out. When your skin is red, scaly or feels tight or itchy, you should apply moisturizer. Extra attention should be given to your face, hands, elbows and knees, and don’t forget to moisturize your feet as well.

TIP #4: Be wary of excessive time spent in air conditioning
Think heaters are the only artificial air source that can visibly dry out your skin? Think again. Air conditioners can suck the moisture and humidity out of the air, which may lead to dry-looking skin in the summer. If you can’t avoid them, like at the office for instance, don’t quit your day job! Just make sure to keep your skin moisturized throughout the day to help keep skin hydrated.
TIP #5: Exfoliate weekly
Slough away dead skin cells from skin’s surface once a week with a gentle exfoliator to help smooth the appearance of skin. This will help give the appearance of a refreshed complexion. But be careful not to over-exfoliate. You don’t want to dry your skin out even more. Start by exfoliating as instructed on the product label and go from there.
TIP #6: Lather on SPF
By now, you should already know how important it is to wear water-resistant, broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 15 or higher each and every day. When temperatures begin to rise in the summer and you’re spending more time outdoors, lather on SPF religiously and take other sun protection measures, like seeking shade when possible indoors or under a covered awning or umbrella, as well as wearing protective clothing and avoiding peak sun hours (between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.) when the rays are most powerful, to help protect your surface skin and hair.
But it’s not enough to just apply sunscreen once. You have to continue to reapply it as the day goes on—at least every two hours—to help keep skin protected against damage on the surface of your skin that may be caused by UV rays.

TIP #7: Drink plenty of water to stay well hydrated
There are many summer activities that have us outside for extended periods. With warmer temperatures, you need to consider the additional water your body loses. If you don’t replace the water you lose, you will become dehydrated. Children and older adults are especially at risk for becoming dehydrated due to the way their body responds to hot temperatures.
Make it a habit to carry a bottle of water with you at all times. Find a way, such as setting an alarm on your phone, to remind you to drink your water regularly. Eating fruits, vegetables and drinking milk are also healthy ways to get more water!
Relief for dry skin and hair really isn’t difficult at all as long as you are prepared and take steps to protect yourself ahead of time. With a little extra care, you’ll be able to enjoy healthy, sun-kissed skin and hair all summer long.

5 Tips to Autumn Healthy Skin!

With fall upon us and temperatures getting colder, we’re into wearing sweaters and boots. But we also should have changed our skincare regimen to take on tolls of cold weather. We checked in with Dr. Amy Ross, MONAT Scientific Board Member, and came away with 5 tips to glowing skin!


Exfoliate, Exfoliate, Exfoliate

Start off with a full-body exfoliating session. Gently exfoliating the skin once a week helps remove dead skin cells and leaves your skin smooth and renewed, Dr. Ross explains. Oil-based scrubs are wonderful because they exfoliate and hydrate.


Use Creams and Oils vs. Lotions

As the air has become drier, your skin needs a thicker moisturizer, Dr. Ross says. Creams provide a stronger oily barrier, which means they both reduce water loss from the outer layer of skin and provide hydration to the inner layer of the skin at the same time. And one of the best hydrators to use for your skin is REJUVENIQE™ Oil Intensive. Made of Abyssinian oil and combined with a blend of 13 unique molecular ingredients, REJUVENIQE™ can be used prior to moisturizer for instant hydration, protection, and improved texture and tone.


Protect Against Still-intense UV Rays

Sun protection shouldn’t end just because the leaves have turned. More than 90 percent of all skin cancers are associated with the sun, which emits cancer-causing ultraviolet (UV) radiation all year-round. Use a broad spectrum (UVA/UVB) sunscreen with an SPF of 25 or higher every day.


Protect Your Lips!

Start moisturizing now to prevent dry, cracked lips this winter, Dr. Ross advises. Gently exfoliate your lips and apply a moisturizing lip balm that’s petroleum free and contains sunscreen with an SPF 20 or more.


Don’t Forget Your Knees, Elbows, Hands and Feet!

Your knees, elbows, hands and feet always are in need of some TLC. Update your skincare routine and gently exfoliate these areas and follow with a rich, creamy skin moisturizer, Dr. Ross emphasizes. Adding a nightly cuticle cream can help your hands get a jump on colder winter weather.our needs.
 
Now you’re ready to face the brisker fall and winter temperatures with a glow in your skin!

Know your skin, love your skin

Did you know that our skin may reflect different ailments as well as our state of wellbeing, not only of the body, but of the mind too?
From genetics, hormones, and our ability to manage stress, to the foods we eat and the products we use on our body, many factors contribute to the appearance of our skin. As a result, skin problems on specific areas of the body may point to underlying conditions, while having flawless skin might be a sign of a good overall health.
The reality is that each one of us is unique, hence we need to care for our skin based on its own unique needs. Many times, changes here and there are nothing to get alarmed about and can easily be treated, even with home remedies combining natural ingredients from our kitchen pantry!
Bottom line: know your skin a little better, love your skin a lot more! September is National Skincare Awareness Month, so what better time to do so? It is the largest organ in our body, after all!
