Mannatech Releases Top Winter Skin Care Tips
COPPELL, Texas, Nov 17, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Mannatech, Incorporated(NASDAQ: MTEX) and spokeswoman for the new Mannatech LIFT(TM) skin care system, Susie Galvez, today released quality tips for skin care maintenance during the winter. Galvez is an internationally known esthetician and beauty expert who has authored eight internationally launched books on beauty and lifestyle.
- Gently cleanse - Opt for a gentle facial cleanser and choose a creamier body cleanser instead of gels or soap. Choose products with gentle, hydrating ingredients such as sunflower oil, mondo grass, lavender, coconut oil and other plant-based botanicals.
- Find a thick moisturizer - During the winter months, thick creams will seal in the moisture and reduce in transdermal moisture loss, which is water leaving the body.
- Soft exfoliation works during the hard cold - Instead of abrasive ingredients such as ground nuts or fruit pits to remove dead and dry skin cells, choose an exfoliator with finely milled grape seeds or sugar type exfoliators to whisk away the debris.
- Time your bath - Keep shower time to less than 10 minutes. Baths should last no longer than 20 minutes. Excess water time will only dehydrate the skin.
- The three-minute rule - After you wash, you only have three minutes to add moisture back to the skin before it seals itself off. So wash, towel dry, and add a deep conditioning, moisturizing product all over the body within three minutes to get the most out of your products and protect the skin.
