Microdermabrasion Set and HOW TO USE~

TimeWise® Microdermabrasion Set Try it! Love it!

Instant Results
Fight fine lines, refine pores and achieve beautifully smooth skin – immediately! with this simple, two-step set.
NOTE: This is NOT to be used as a Face Wash!
When used as directed
Before you start Personal Tips: 
This is to only needs to be used 2-3 tops times a week.
Use at night! Its always best to use anything that has or is a serum at night because it allows the nutrients to really soak in and not loose potency do to sun exposure. Also because step One really works! and by that i mean it really buffs away that first layer of skin therefor leaving skin more sensitive to exposure to the sun to quickly. your skin needs time to reveal that under layer of new skin to its full potential! If you need to use in the day then of course be sure to put on your SPF! But you should be using one everyday anyways riiiiiight? ;) 

Also i personally think on days you use the Microdermabrasion Set at night you can skip the TW nighttime solution if you are currently using it.
You don't want a an exfoliator with large coarse grit because it will  overwork your skin and can actually cause scratches and tares that can lead to irritation or worse, infection! Use a fine grit that is gentle yet effective!!
Step 1: Refine is an advanced exfoliator using the same professional grade exfoliating crystals used by dermatologists, to immediately energize skin and reveal more radiant, healthy-looking skin.
Application: After cleansing away dirt and makeup, apply a quarter-sized amount of Step 1: Refine to wet face with fingertips. Using circular motions, gently massage face with fingertips for 1-2 minutes. Rinse thoroughly with warm water and pat dry.
Also use on chest to help get rid of signs of sun damage! 

Step 2: Replenish separates the set from the competition. It's a rich serum, containing vitamins, antioxidants and anti-irritants. This serum nourishes the soft, smooth skin revealed by Step 1: Refine.
Application: Following Step 1: Refine, use fingertips to gently apply Step 2: Replenish. Continue with SPF  like TimeWise® Day Solution SPF 25* then TimeWise® Age-Fighting Moisturizer.

Removing makeup every day is a tricky process as you don’t want to pull or tug the delicate skin around the eyes. Also you want to cause your skin to dry out by using a harsh cleanser and/or makeup remover. It is important for the health of your skin to remove any makeup before going to bed each night. Leaving makeup on your skin overnight can clog your pores and lead to acne. Leaving eye makeup on overnight can result in the makeup getting into your eye, causing irritation and possibly infection. and eyelash loss.
Direction Tips:
- I like to wash my face First, washing my face yet being gentle around my eye area, but not worrying if all the liner, mascara and shadow comes off  right away.
- Once you have finished washing your face the water and cleanser will have not only already washed away most but eye products also loosened anything left over for easy removal causing less tugging.
- Soak a cotton ball / pad with Mary kay Oil Free Makeup Remover and wipe gently over the eye area from inner corner of the eye out and slightly up, resisting tugging. Any remaining hard to get bits can be easily finished up with a Q-tip.
-Then simply splash face with cool water and pat dry.

    Why Mineral powder might be best for you!

    "MIRACLE" Mineral Powder
    by Mary Kay
    Mineral powder  foundations are made from all natural and gentle ingredients that do not damage your skin. They do not contain fillers, oils, dyes or any harsh chemicals. They will almost Never cause irritation to your skin. This is especially important considering the largest area to which it is applied is your face…. Your most visible pallet!!

    Beautiful, Complete Coverage
    Another attraction of the mineral powder foundation is that it gives great coverage. It is ideal for concealing scars, small pimples, brown or red spots, blemishes. They provide superior coverage due to the lack of cheap, unnatural and unhealthy fillers. This type of foundation has also been proven to be the best for concealing skin disorders such as acne, Rosacea and Melasma. Tests and studies have shown that mineral powder foundations are wonderful for acne sufferers. Not only do they provide complete coverage, they also help to calm and heal inflammation brought on by acne. Mineral powder foundations will give you an even and natural looking coverage that you can wear all by itself on days that you prefer to be more casual. Or you can totally dress it up with your other makeup products and be pure glamourous!!
    Mineral powder foundations are also great for those who suffer from dry skin because the minerals “trap” moisture in the skin and help your skin feel hydrated all the time. It also gives you a weightless feel to your makeup unlike the “caked on” feeling some liquid foundation, concealer and loose powders can do. This foundation is truly light as a feather! Mineral powder foundations work perfectly on all ages. It works great on mature skin because it refracts light which in turns minimizes the appearance of fine lines, imperfections, discolorations and wrinkles.  Loose mineral foundation is the purest form of foundation available and is appropriate for every skin type, including those with very oily or sensitive skin.
    Perfect and Economical
    Another great thing about MK mineral powder foundation is the cost. Mary Kay’s Mineral Powder Foundation costs $18.00 and you will be amazed at just how long it lasts. A little goes a long way! Who doesn’t love that?!?!
    If you have never used a mineral powder foundation you may be wondering about the application process. The natural pigments that mineral products contain blend easily and effortlessly on the skin. This type of foundation should be applied with a good brush for the application of this product. Using a brush to apply the foundation will allow for you to distribute the minerals evenly and ensure a “streak free” face. When choosing your foundation brush be sure that its bristles are consisted of high density hair. It should also be short, soft and firm. Mary Kay’s Mineral Foundation Brush is just that and priced very affordable at only $10.00.  Remember using makeup brushes comprised of synthetic bristles is damaging to your skin because of the chemicals they contain and their hard texture. You will turn your container upside down and tap on the bottom a few times to release the powder into the lid. Turn the container right side up and unscrew the top. Place your brush in the powder that has presented itself on top and lightly tap your brush into the lid to eliminate the excess powder. Then simply begin brushing it across your face until all of the desired areas are covered. It's as easy as 1-2-3!!!

    Eyelash and Mascara Tips for Healthy Eyes

     In Honor of the New Mascara "Lash Love"
    here are some Tips all about Mascara!

    Although wearing mascara is completely safe, following mascara tips for healthy eyes in never a bad idea.
    One of the dangers of mascara is that bacteria can build up on your mascara brush over time and if these bacteria get into your eyes it can cause a rather nasty eye infection that can cause your eyelashes to fall out, eye injury even blindness.

    Many types of mascara contain preservatives that help prevent the growth of bacteria, however as your mascara ages the preservatives can still break down and your mascara is vulnerable to producing dangerous bacteria.
    For this reason your mascara should be thrown away after about 3-4 months. Additionally, while the eye normally offers a good barrier against bacterial invasion, a slip of the mascara wand can scratch the cornea and introduce infection.
    Here are some safe recommendations for how to use and store your mascara for maintaining your eye's health.

    -Never share any makeup with friends, especially eye makeup and mascara.

    -If you smell a strange odor coming from the mascara tube, throw it away immediately. Bacteria found on the applicators and in the product can and have lead to severe eye damage, even blindness.

    -If you do get an eye infection, throw away your existing tube of mascara; don't risk reinfecting your eyes.

    -Never put water or anything else in your mascara it will promote the growth of bacteria. It's not worth losing your vision for especially if you wear contacts.

    -If your mascara dries out or clumps, throw it away. Do not attempt to add water, baby oil or any other substance; this is how bacteria can grow.

    -Don't pump your mascara brush in and out of the tube, this allows air to get inside and it will dry out faster. In addition, this pumping motion can increase the growth of bacteria.

    -Never use saliva to moisten mascara. Your mouth has millions of bacteria that can get into the mascara and eventually will transfer to your eyes.

    Additionally, don't assume that hypoallergenic mascara is safest against harmful bacteria. Some tests have shown that hypoallergenic mascara often produced the most bacteria over long periods of time.
    The safest way to use mascara is to follow the above recommendations and see a physician at the first signs of any infection.  

    • Use an eyelash curler before applying mascara. Or, if you prefer to curl after application, make sure that the mascara is dry.
    • Apply properly, by starting with the wand at the base of your lashes and working out to the tips.
    • Wiggling the wand at the base of the lashes is said to make your lashes look thicker and will help keep the lashes from clumping together
    • Use even, consistent strokes to prevent globs being deposited on your lashes
    • For extra help to prevent clumps use a lash comb also to separate any lashes that are stuck together.
    • Want to try some colored mascara?  Avoid a garish look by applying one coat of black, let dry, and then a coat of color.
    • When applying a second coat, whether of the same color or different, make sure that first coat is dry. (if the first coat isn’t dry, it can cause the lashes to clump together.)
    • Keep eyes open really wide (unnaturally so) for a few moments before blinking.  This will help make sure the mascara is at least partially dry, and can help reduce smudges around your eye.
    • To help reduce under eye smudges, powder the under-eye area before application.
    • If you still get a smudge, let dry then remove carefully with a Q-tip:  Press the Q-tip onto the smudge, then rotate a half-turn. This will remove most smudges quickly and cleanly.
    • If can’t seem to get the hang of smudge-free application, you can put a tissue under your lashes.
    • Replace your mascara after 3-4 months, or sooner if it smells “off” or looks dry.  (take a sharpie or sticker and write the date you opened it right on the tube or cap to know when it’s time to be replaced.)
    • Although you may have a favorite mascara, don’t be afraid to try something new.  A new color or new applicator brush may give you a totally amazing look.

    Beauty TIP: A great mascara is important, but you can take extra care of your lash as prep. Apply Lubricants for eyelash growth. Eyelashes get dry at times. Try lubricants such as olive oil, Vaseline or vitamin E which is widely known to stimulate growth of hair. Keep eyelashes moist at night when you sleep and as a result could enhance growth
