What are some skincare tips for traveling?

June 20, 2014


Traveling can be stressful. Not only do you have to temporarily put your daily life on hold, you also have to plan and pack. Between choosing outfits and making sure that your favorite beauty products are sized for airport security, getting away can be a hassle. Luckily, you don’t have to leave behind all your favorite beauty products. The ProSonic Go is a travel sized version of your favorite ProSonic cleansing device, so you can take it with you wherever you may wander.

By using the ProSonic Go device and following these skincare tips, your skincare routine won’t miss a beat while traveling.

Be sure to moisturize your skin the night before you are set to go. This is especially important if you plan to fly because airplane air can dehydrate the skin dramatically and make it appear lackluster for the rest of your trip.

If you’ll be spending a lot of time traveling, or will be in the air, you may want to skip the foundation application as it will fade. Instead, apply a tinted moisturizer once you arrive at your destination or your use the ProSonic GO Cleansing Brush and Makeup Applicator System to easily and quickly apply your foundation on the go.

Keep skin hydrated with a refreshing water mist. Rather than adding foundation and having it look cakey, simply spray a little mineral water to refresh your makeup.

Blotting papers are your best friend while traveling. Simple dab blotting papers or rice paper on the oiliest areas of your face, typically the T zone, in order to stay fresh and clean looking, rather than super shiny. Be sure to gently blot rather than rub to avoid smearing your makeup.

If your skin tends to get dry and dull or you’re not feeling your best while you’re away, you can fake being bright eyed and bushy tailed with a hint of shimmer. Keep a little shimmer powder or cream on hand for when you’re not looking or feeling your best. Dab a little down the straight of your nose and on the tops of your cheekbones for a glowing complexion.

Switch your lipstick for a lip gloss or stain. Lipstick can be dehydrating and cracked lips or faded color isn’t flattering. Rather than using your favorite lipstick, use your vacation to try something new, like a shiny lip gloss that can be easily reapplied for a fresh look or a subtle stain if you want some color.

Keep your lips hydrated by using a medicated lip balm whenever possible. It’s especially important to use the product when on an airplane or on a bus or train where you can’t control the environment and excess heating or air conditioning can wreak havoc on your kisser.

Fake a good night’s sleep by taking advantage of your hotel’s ice machine. Flying and time changes can make getting plenty of rest difficult, but you can calm down puffy eyes and dark circles by applying a cold cure. Simply put some ice in a washcloth and apply it to eyes to reduce dark circles and swelling. Any redness caused by the ice will soon fade, unlike puffy eyes that are left untreated.

Switch up your usual eye makeup routine. Mascara has a tendency to smear, so either skip it or simply use an eyelash curler to show off your lashes, or opt for a waterproof formula. You may also want to switch your cream formula eyeshadow for a powder, which is less prone to smearing and fading.

Keep your nails neutral. It’s nice to treat yourself to a manicure before you travel, but opt for a gel formula that will last or skip brightly colored nails that will easily chip and look ragged. Instead, keep nails natural and buffed or use a neutral color that won’t easily fade.

Be sure to use the same skincare products that you do at home. The last thing you need while on vacation is a skin flare up, so use your favorite cleanser and moisturizer while you’re away. Bring along the ProSonic Go to easily clean your face at the end of a busy day and get rid of any foreign particles that can wreak havoc on the skin. In the morning, you will be able to easily apply your foundation with the device, making it a skincare travel essential that fits into any makeup bag, thanks to its compact size.

What are the common types of acne and how can the ProSonic Glow help fight it?

June 16, 2014


It may surprise you to learn that there are several different types of acne. Typically classified as mild, moderate or severe, acne is also classified as either non-inflammatory or inflammatory. Whatever type of acne you have, it can cause a loss of confidence and feelings of shame and unattractiveness. Luckily, acne of all types can be treated with a ProSonic Glow device, getting rid not only of the acne but also the negative feelings that it creates.

Acne is mostly common in teenagers, but it can affect adults as well. It is caused by excessive sebum–oil produced by the skin–getting trapped in pores by dead skin cells. The oil then gets backed up in the skin, causing whiteheads and blackheads. When the whitehead or blackhead gets inflamed, it creates acne. Most often acne occurs on the face, but it can also occur on the chest, shoulders and back.

Take a look at the different types of acne and how a ProSonic Glow can help fight it:

Inflammatory versus Non-Inflammatory Acne:

Non-inflammatory acne is less severe than inflammatory and is commonly referred to in more causal terms as a pimple or zit.

Mild, Moderate and Severe acne:

Mild: Mild acne is categorized by the appearance of whiteheads and blackheads, known as comedones. These are clogged pores. Contrary to common belief, blackheads are not actually dirt trapped in the skin. Rather, blackheads are open pores that allow skin pigment, melanin, in the pore to mingle with oxygen in the air. Whiteheads are closed pores with a white or yellowish head. As more and more oil builds up, it is more likely to cause inflammatory acne. Acne is also categorized as mild if there are only a few pimples present or if they are small.

Moderate: Moderate acne is categorized with an increased number of pimples. These pimples may be inflamed and called “papules” (small bumps) or “pustules” (filled with yellow pus).

Severe: Those that suffer from severe acne often have papules and pustules as well as reddish, painful nodules that can cause skin damage and scarring.

Treatment options:

There are many different ways to treat acne, from specialized soaps and cleansers to topical treatments, prescription medications and physical treatments. While some people find these solutions beneficial, many of them can cause further problems. Soaps can be too harsh and cause irritation to the skin. Topical treatments can be costly and may not work. Prescription medications can have bad side effects and using antibiotics can become ineffective if the bacteria become resistant to the medication.

Other treatment options, like professional facial treatments and extractions can be expensive and time consuming, as can laser treatments, IPL therapy and phototherapy. These procedures can be effective, but are often too expensive to maintain.

The ProSonic Glow:

The ProSonic Glow is the same type of skincare system used by professional skincare specialists. The sonic and pulsation technology is six times more effective at getting a deep down clean than soap and water and is suitable for use on both face and body, so it can treat acne wherever it occurs.

The deep down cleaning power of the ProSonic Glow gets deep into pores to remove known pore clogging materials like dirt and makeup. By cleansing and exfoliating at the same time, you not only save time, but also get a more effective cleaning power improving skin texture. The ProSonic Glow also reduces the appearance of large pores and the presence of acne as well.

The ProSonic Glow features four different brush heads and three speeds to get you acne free, or close to it, from head to toe. The facial brush head evens out dry skin and oily patches and prevents acne breakouts as well as reduce pore size. The body brush can be used to help treat and prevent acne on the chest, shoulders and back.

Best of all, the device is simple to use and portable. You don’t have to make and keep appointments at the doctor’s office or go without treatment when you are out of town. The portable device can go with you to treat and prevent acne at your convenience.
