Problem Skin not a Problem!

Do you suffer from blemishes, oily skin, or acne? Sometimes our skin seems to be its own worst enemy and we are not sure what to do to get that even and smooth complexion that always seems just out of reach.

Exfoliating and cleansing are part of the answer. Skin that is breaking out is more sensitive and more easily irritated skin and keeping it free of dead skin cells and environmental particles is absolutely key to keeping it from getting inflamed. Using a glycolic acid gel cleanser is the gentlest way to cleanse the skin thoroughly without irritating it. Some exfoliation systems use crystals or particles to clean away dead skin, but skin that has broken out will find that irritating and the breakout area will be redder. By using a glycolic acid gel, natural ingredients from sugar cane gently dissolve away impurities and give the skin a chance to heal and renew naturally. This leaves the skin looking cleaner and more radiant after just the first cleaning.

Repeated cleanings will help promote cellular renewal by encouraging collagen production which firms and smooths the skin naturally. You will notice an immediate improvement in skin tone and making Exfoliate Me a part of your daily cleansing routine will continue the process to a smoother, more lovely complexion.

Best of all, Exfoliate Me is made with no artificial fragrances or preservatives. It is paraben-free, formaldehyde free, triclosan free, and SLS free so your skin will be cleansed with a no-toxins formula that you can count on.

Order Exfoliate Me with confidence. All Smooth Skin Systems products are shipped quickly to your home or office and are paraben-free and cruelty-free with a money-gack guarantee. You can buy with confidence and then tell your friends what the secret of your “new skin” is! Order Smooth Skin Systems Exfoliate Me today!

Your Best Look

There is an old saying, “You never get a second chance to make a first impression,” and even though that is a clever little cliche, it is also the truth. That is why it is a mistake to focus on makeup or wardrobe if you skimp on skincare. We all admit that a beautiful outfit can really make our mood lift and our confidence soar but what is happening in the eye of the beholder? Maybe they are impressed with our outfit, but if our skin looks dull, tired, old or wrinkled, that skin will make as big an impression or bigger, than the outfit did.

Glowing skin will not help much if you are wearing unsightly clothes but good skin care and a fashionable wardrobe together are simply an unbeatable combination. You want to watch someone walking towards you see that beautiful dress, glance up, take a look at your face, and begin to smile. It’s all part of the same package; all part of your basic allure. After that, mascara and lipstick, a bangle bracelet or diamond stud earrings are the finishing touches, or icing on the cake!

There are some basic steps to taking care of your skin and they do not have to be complicated. Your skin needs hydration. That means drinking plenty of water and using a moisturizer on exposed parts of your skin that take a beating from the sun and the environment. That also means protecting your skin from the rays of the sun with a full-spectrum sunscreen or sun block.

Cleansing is a must with a cleanser made for your skin and gentle enough not to irritate it. Additionally, your skin builds up dead skin cells so you will want to use a good exfoliation gel or cream on your face and hands so that your skin is smooth and fresh. Next, a moisturizer for daily use is necessary on face, hands, throat and decollete. Really, that takes care of the basics of skin care.

Is there more? Of course! You may consider your neck a problem area or be concerned about dark circles under your eyes. There are special creams for that and many other problem areas. But if you take care of the basics you will look like a million dollars, especially in that designer dress.

Skin Care Breakthrough! Or Is It?

How many times do you read those words, “Anti-aging miracle; skincare breakthrough,” or others like them? It seems that every cosmetics company in the world has a new discovery coming out in a bottle that will make you younger. Are people really getting younger? Are there really that many new products?

The answers are yes and no. Yes, people are able to defeat some of the least attractive visible signs of aging like the frown lines on the forehead or crows feet at the edges of the eyes. No, there are not really that many new products. But they seem dramatic compared to what companies knew about aging just ten or fifteen years ago. Back then if you wanted your skin to have a better surface you underwent serious chemical peels that might take months of recovery before you looked good. Or, you went in for a facelift and then hid yourself for months until the black eyes and swelling went away. Then you tried to explain why your face looked all pulled and tight.

Botox™, hyaluronic acid, and peptides changed a lot of that. Scientists discovered the function of hyaluronic acid in skin repair and renewal and discovered that it plays a significant role in collagen production. This truly transformed the understanding of what could be done for skin, even skin already damaged by the sun or aging. Then peptides became the big thing in skin care. Again, these are building blocks of your body and play a role in wound healing and skin renewal. What wonderful discoveries! You could renew and revitalize your skin with peptides and hyaluronic acid without primitive surgery and long recovery times.

But how can you tell if the product you are using is really delivering the right ingredients to your skin? First look for one with NO parabens. Parabens are a cheap preservative that promotes aging, and yet many expensive formulations use parabens because it increases their profit margins. Avoid them at all cost. Next, avoid skin creams that have artificial fragrances and fillers. Look for an ingredients label that shows a short list of ingredients and those ingredients should be the hyaluronic acid and peptides you are looking for. At that point you have done your homework. Congratulations! You are buying the big breakthroughs! Buy our best face cream with six peptides and HA!

How Sweet is Honey for Your Skin!?

Honey and amber are two substances that have been prized for many centuries. The Egyptians knew the value of honey and relied on its anti-bacterial and preservative powers. Modern medicine is rediscovering the healing properties of honey and many chronic wound treatments now have a component that utilizes honey to promote healing and keep wounds clean.

Amber’s beautiful golden glow has been used in jewelry and sought by alchemists for its rarity and beauty. Fossilized tree resin it has a place in folk medicine as a healing ingredient and in jewelry as a beautiful, natural “stone.”

Now the combination of Amber and Honey are used in a wonderful exfoliating scrub that thoroughly and effectively cleans pores while promoting healing and renewal of skin cells. Gently wash your face and then apply Oh, Honey™ scrub to the skin of your face and neck. Moving your fingers in a light, circular motion you will feel the amber crystals lifting dead skin cells and revealing the newer skin beneath. As the amber crystals clean and exfoliate, the honey and jojoba moisturize and renew your skin leaving your face smoother than ever with a lovely glow.

This luscious scrub is gentle enough to use on sensitive skin and a good enough exfoliation treatment to keep your pores open and delicately clean. You will be delighted with the results and the feel of this wonderful scrub. Improves your skin, diminishes age spots and discoloration, helps heal blemishes and reduces wrinkles and fine lines.

What Are You Looking For?

Running a business that caters to women can be both exhilarating and challenging all at once. Women are not a one-size-fits-all proposition. Even focusing on one specific area like the facial skin care, there is still a lot to think about and a lot of decisions to be made. Many people have asked us so we are writing this little blog post to explain how we came up with a product line that we believe women are looking for.

It began, naturally, with talking to women. Women had a lot of things they wanted a face cream to do that the felt was not being met by the existing industry. For one thing, they all agreed they wanted something that could slow or even reverse aging. As extreme as that might seem, in today’s sophisticated research laboratories it is not that unreasonable a desire. The mechanism by which skin ages is understood. The things that occur that make skin look older are also well understood. Skin, in a teen and early 20′s woman, renews itself by a simple process. When it begins to run low on collagen it simply creates more. So skin care that wants to stop the effects of aging must do two things: penetrate the skin to get deep into the cells where they depletion is taking place and stimulate collagen production and hydration. The concept is simple. Skin cells that lose moisture collapse and form wrinkles. Skin cells that retain moisture and stay hydrated are smooth and  firm. That is where ingredients like Peptides and Hyaluronic Acid that are key to modern skin revitalization come in.

Women also did not want potentially harmful estrogen mimics in their skin creams. That seems so obvious it is amazing it had to be stated. But cosmetics companies have for years been using preservatives like Parabens even though there are possible links between parabens and breast cancer, and parabens have been shown to accelerate aging!

No wonder women did not want them used in skin care products! So when we created Smooth Skin Systems products we put in the highest quality medical-grade anti-aging ingredients currently available. We left out potentially harmful chemicals and wasteful fillers and anything that might irritate a woman’s face. What is left is just what women asked for: safe, effective anti-aging skin care products. It’s just that simple!

Smooth Skin Systems Goes on the Road!

Smooth Skin Systems had a wonderful time at the Essentially Women show in Charleston, South Carolina! The show was primarily for retailers serving the needs of post-mastectomy women and breast cancer survivors. There was a cocktail reception, seminars, and a wonderful trade show for the vendors. We think our booth looked really beautiful and we shared some space with an organic bath products manufacturer.

You may wonder what an anti-aging skin care system and a bath and body manufacturer would even be doing at a trade show aimed at breast cancer and post-mastectomy women. That’s easy. Both product lines are formulated specifically to avoid the chemicals in normal cosmetics and skin care that have been linked potentially to cancer. Among the most controversial of these are the parabens. Paraben molecules have actually been found in breast cancer tumor tissue and because they are an estrogen mimic and breast cancer is estrogen sensitive, there are many concerns about them. However, many cosmetic and skin-care lines continue to use parabens. We are aware that breast cancer survivors are often among the most aware consumers and we have talked to 100′s of them to find out what their concerns are. Because of those dialogs, not only are we paraben-free, we also use no artificial fragrances, fillers, preservatives, triclosans, sls, or formaldehyde. Smooth Skin Systems is meant to be good for women, good to women, and help women look their best at any age.

We hope to continue spreading the word about Smooth Skin Systems and women’s health any where we go. The Essentially Women show was wonderful for us and we look forward to more opportunities to meet our fans and customers.

Keep your eyes open, we may be coming to a women’s show in an area near you and if not, you are always able to buy our paraben-free anti-aging skin care right here online! Remember, women are not only our customers, they are our whole focus and their beauty and youth are our mission!



You Look Tired!

Don’t you hate to hear that? You’re wearing some amazing clothes, gorgeous peep-toe shoes, your hair looks good, but something is giving you away. The person talking to you thinks they are being sympathetic, but you know the real problem – how tired you look is the first thing they noticed about you. That’s not good. It isn’t that we are never tired, or too vain to admit it. But, to think that is the first thought in the other person’s mind when they see us never puts us in a good mood!

Usually, it is the eyes that give the impression of fatigue or weariness. Sometimes because of circumstances we cannot control like past sun damage or a sleepless night. The skin around the eyes is much more delicate than most skin so it is more prone to darkening under the eyes or general puffiness. The more this happens, the more fine lines begin to appear at the corners of the eyes and pretty soon you have crows feet.

Isn’t there anything that can help? Of course there is. With breakthrough advances in the chemistry of facial aging and skin care creams, there have also been advances in science’s understanding of the process that makes your eyes look exhausted. Several things happen when your eyes get tired. Dark circles appear underneath your eyes caused by blood pooling from tiny capillaries. Surface inflammation flares up, making eyes droopy and puffy. Finally, as the skin around the eye sags and gets puffier, fine lines form. The result is that your whole face looks tired. That’s not fair, but the eyes are the most noticed elements of your face.

Take heart and consider using a paraben-free Vitamin K skin care product that can penetrate the fragile skin cells, reduce inflammation and help control vein seepage. Refresh Me eye cream works to eliminate dark circles with a special blend of natural and nourishing vitamins and powerful anti-aging ingredients including Arnica Montana, Jojoba Oil, Apricot Kernel Oil, Rice Bran Extract, and Squalane. What Refresh Me does not have is parabens, triclosans, phthalates or artificial fragrances or fillers.

Eliminate your worry about tired looking eyes and dark circles with Vitamin K enriched under eye care cream!
