A Brief History of Anti-Aging

For centuries, people have been looking for ways to delay the onset of wrinkles. People figured, while getting older couldn’t be stopped, at least they could remain looking young for as long as possible! The origins of preventing wrinkles isn’t anything new. Although Shira has been developing innovative skin care treatments since 1990, many ancient cultures including Greek, Indian, Chinese and Egyptian, developed their own ways to fight wrinkles, before anyone could buy anti-wrinkle cream and anti-aging products.

As one of the first societies to study cosmetology, Egyptians mixed natron and water to make a night cream. (Natron is a by-product of sodium bicarbonate or sodium carbonate.) Egyptians also were one of the first civilizations to use oils on their skin and hair to protect from the dry and hot climate of their land.

Greek women used honey and olive oil for moisturizing and protecting their skin. They also used these natural ingredients to create products that not only smelled good, but were beneficial to their skin. Many Greek women were also careful about limiting sun exposure to prevent wrinkles.

Indians also had their own skin care routines, including using sandalwood as a base for creams and medicines to clean and moisturize. It was also used to develop an anti-acne product by mixing it with turmeric. This created a paste that was left on overnight. Other ingredients they used in their skincare products included rosewater and other plants and herbs.

As time has passed, many modern anti-aging products and techniques have been discovered. Shira Esthetics is constantly learning and utilizing many new ingredients and formulations in our product lines. From our earlier product lines to the natural and organic fruit ingredients in the Shir-Organic line, to the advanced formulation of Pentavitin® in our Shir-Radiance line, Shira Esthetics has stayed on top of the latest ingredients to provide the best, and most advanced cosmeceuticals for our clients. Shira Esthetics has some of the best eye creams for wrinkles and best anti-aging creams, so be sure to visit our online store to see all our products!

New Year Resolutions

Healthy Skin Resolutions for the New Year!

Everyone knows that losing weight and going to the gym top the list of New Year’s resolutions, but what about making a resolution to take better care of your skin?

If your skin has been dry and dull or showing signs of aging, now is the time to begin a skin care regimen by making it your New Year’s Resolution, and actually sticking to it. For most people simply washing their face, putting on make-up and heading out the door is all they do. Worst of all, at night, many go to bed without removing their makeup! (Read here why this is BAD!)

Of the numerous ways to achieve great skin, the first is having a good routine that consists of cleansing, exfoliating, treating and moisturizing and it really doesn’t take much time.

Shira Esthetics has several lines of products for all skin types and issues. Our on-site esthetician Jordanna can help you find the best products for whatever your skin concerns may be. Read through her tips below for a healthy skin regimen along with some product ideas and learn how to have the best skin in 2017! All our products can be found on www.shiraesthetics.com.

  1. Start your regimen by cleansing your face with lukewarm water. If you have normal to dry skin, try our Shir-Radiance Deep Foaming Cleanser. This cleanser is formulated with Mandelic acid to deeply cleanse and brighten the skin and set the skin up for optimizing the rest of a great skin care regimen.
  2. After cleansing, pat the skin dry and follow with a toner. For oily skin, our Shir-Organic Green Tea Toner will remove any remaining skin residue while its anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties clean bacteria on the skin to reduce redness and swelling that can be caused by oily and acne-prone skin.
  3. Allow the toner to dry on the skin for a minute or two and continue with the next step to great skin by exfoliating. While it’s not necessary to exfoliate everyday, exfoliating removes the dead the skin cells on the face which helps you achieve optimizes results of serums and moisturizers. Formulated with natural alpha-hydroxy acids from real fruit, our Shir-Organic AHA Treatment Scrub, for all skin types, brightens and smooths the skin complexion and surface.
  4. Serums are treatments that target specific skin concerns such as fine lines, hyperpigmentation, and even acne! More than one serum can be used in your regimen to address more than one skin issue. For example, if your skin is acne-prone but dry due to prescription creams, use our Shir-Organic Eucalyptus Serum to rid the skin of acne causing bacteria followed by the Shir-Radiance Ultrapure Hyaluronic Acid Serum to hydrate and alleviate skin dryness without clogging pores.
  5. Moisturizers are the last step in the regimen because they lock in all of the benefits from the serum. With SPF 20, our Shir-Radiance Ester-C Collagen Moisturizer, for normal to dry skin, will provide long-lasting hydration. The active ingredient Pentavitin is a unique ingredient that locks in moisture for 72 hours. Also formulated with Ester-C and Mandelic Acid, your skin will be restored with a youthful and healthy glow. If you have oily/combination skin, our Shir-Organic Grapefruit Moisturizer. Grapefruit is rich in Vitamic C, which improves collagen protection and reduces skin damage caused by free radicals.

3 Summer Skin Care Tips to Keep in Mind

As you get ready to switch from your spring wardrobe to your summer wardrobe, and thus show more skin on a daily basis, you should also keep in mind that you will need to keep your skin protected. In fact, if want to keep your skin looking great all summer long, you should consider these three tips!

1. Keeping your skin hydrated will help it stay healthy all summer long.

Just as you should keep your skin hydrated in the winter, you should do the same during the summer. After all, it’s likely you will be wearing less clothing and be in the sun more often, so this means your skin will be robbed of its moisture and oils a lot faster.

2. Prevent sun damage before it happens by applying sunscreen.

The sun’s UV rays can do some serious damage to your skin even if you have a darker complexion. It can cause wrinkles, brown spots, and most of all, increase your chances of getting skin cancer. So, if you truly desire to keep your skin glowing and wrinkle-free throughout the summer and beyond, you need to get your hands on a great SPF.

3. Prepare your skin internally by incorporating more foods with antioxidants into your diet.

Ingesting as many antioxidants as you can (the healthier the food, the better!) will help to reduce potential skin damage and keep your skin healthy. What’s more, if you want to learn more about how omega-3s can help fight skin inflammation, we have a whole blog on it!

While there are many products out there that will keep your skin debris-free, hydrated, and protected, some of the best are those that contain natural and organic ingredients. You will even find that most of the products we sell will help to provide you with an awesome summer complexion!

In all, if you are looking for a place to buy natural skin care products or buy professional organic skin care products online, we have plenty here on our website. To learn more about how our products can keep you looking great in the summer, please call or email us at any time!
