Ice Rolling 101

I’m sure you’ve heard all of the buzz about ice rollers but do you know all the benefits they could bring to your skin? Our skin is the largest organ of the body, so it is very important to take care of it. Cold massage therapy is a natural way to help relieve so many skin concerns.​

If you struggle with large pores, swelling or puffy skin, you may want to include an ice roller into your skin care regime.

Here’s everything you need to know and how these tools could improve your skin.

What is an ice roller?

Ice rollers are facial massagers that have been chilled to achieve the benefits of combining facial massage with cool temperatures. It is a water and gel filled roller with a handle that can be kept in the freezer.  They were created as a way to soothe and pamper the skin before and after skin treatments.

Ice Roller

Why should you ice roll?

Ice rolling is a type of cooling therapy for the face and using an ice roller can have many benefits. They can help reduce inflammation, cool skin, increase blood circulation and have a skin tightening effect. Cold temperatures cause constriction in the skin, resulting in a shrinking effect on the appearance of pores and blood vessels, creating a smoother, more even-toned surface over time. Cold treatments can also soothe inflammation and irritation, which is perfect for those who experience sensitivity or redness in their skin.

When should you use an ice roller?

You can use an ice roller daily or as often as desired. Here are some reasons you’ll definitely want to start using one:

Puffy Skin

Cold therapy is nothing new. Ever heard of an ice facial? People have been dunking their faces in sinks full of ice water for decades because they believed that the freezing cold water helped get rid of puffy eyes, redness, and temporarily tighten the skin – and they were right. But now there is an easier and more comfortable way!

Tired Eyes

If your eyes are tired and puffy, gently roll an ice roller around the under-eye area to bring relief and help shrink inflammation.

Post Shaving or Waxing

Great for using after hair removal treatments. Try rolling the ice roller around the eyebrows and upper lip to soothe stinging and reduce swelling and redness.

Mild Sunburn

There are not too many things that can sooth sunburn as well as cold therapy does. I recommend applying a thin layer of Aloe Vera Gel, and gently roll over the sunburnt areas to help soothe.

During Allergy Season

Ice rollers are great for people who suffer from allergies. You can calm inflammation and reduce swelling caused by some allergies.

Breakouts

If you have a particularly irritated breakout, ice rolling the area helps to reduce swelling and redness as well as reduce any itching and pain. It will also help it clear up a bit faster.

Headache or Sore Muscle Relief

Cold therapy can dramatically relieve muscle pain. With the rolling motion you can massage and cool down the muscles. If you have jaw pain, neck, forehead or any part of the face and body, massage that area with cold therapy for relief. And you can roll other parts of your body too!

Seal in Treatments

The constricting effect of ice rollers also offers an efficient way to seal the blood vessels in the skin after applying a treatment such as serum or other treatments. I also like to use it with my sheet masks.

Lymphatic Drainage

Used at the end of your skin care routine, an ice roller massage soothes and smooths skin, aiding in lymphatic drainage as much as a fingertip massage, with the added benefits of the cold temperature.

How to use an ice roller

1. Sanitize with alcohol and a cotton ball.

2. Freeze your ice roller for at least 2 hours

3. Once cold, start rolling using light pressure, roll outward from nose, across jawline and across forehead for 2-5 minutes each day.

4. Roll gently down the sides of your neck.

5. Sanitize and store in freezer.

no makeup look

How To Get The Look:

  1.  Lumière de Vie Pore Minimizing Serum-It’s a lightweight serum that instantly blurs imperfections and reduces the appearance of pores. The innovative formula is designed to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, moisturize and eliminate shine. Perfect for all skin tones this universal shade gives your complexion a semi-matte finish without the feel of makeup. Apply with a foundation brush, or with your fingers for a no-fuss application. 
  2. Blush Bronzer Duo – Another time-saving hack is to use this Blush-Bronzer duo to add warmth and color to your cheeks. Also, a great tip for a quick eye look is to also take your bronzer shade and add it to the crease of your eyes. Use a large powder brush to apply to the areas of the face where the sun would hit it.
  3. Khol Eyeliner – Make your eyes pop with a quick swipe of brown eyeliner. Choosing a softer shade like brown helps the look appear more natural. Make sure to smudge it out so it looks soft and not drawn on.
  4. Fiber Lush Mascara – Top off your eye look with a coat of mascara. For a natural look just apply one coat, or for a more dramatic lash effect layer on 2-3 coats. Less is more with this mascara!
  5. Vitamin E Lip Treatment – Let your natural lip color be the star of the show. Add a little moisture and nutrients to your lips with our Vitamin E Lip Treatment.

 These tips and tricks will have people wondering if it is your natural beauty shining through, or a touch of makeup!

7 Tips for Date Night Skin

7 Tips for Date Night Skin

Whether you’ve been married for a long time like me, or if you are “dating”, date nights are so important! If you’re anything like me, when I look my best, I feel my best, and why not WOW your man. Take the time to easily prep your skin for a beautiful glow that will have your date enamored. Here are 7 great tips for healthy, smooth and clear skin for your next date night.

1. Start the night before

Consider using a sheet masque prior to bed. Incredible skin demands an incredible masque. Lumière de Vie Moisture Intense Sheet Masque is the definitive treatment that is formulated with aloe to intensely moisturize while reducing oxidative damage from the everyday elements. Utilizing the powerful hydrating effects of hyaluronic acid, this specialized sheet masque instantly revitalizes dry, aged skin on contact.  Allow 10-25 minutes for the masque to activate and then gently remove from skin. Lightly massage any remaining product into face, neck and décolleté. Follow with your favorite moisturizer. Your skin will be soft the next morning.

2. Remove your makeup

A blank canvas is the best way to begin a work of art. Leaving residual makeup on your face can block pores and cause breakouts. Don’t apply new makeup over old makeup, it’s important to begin your pre-date skincare routine with a clean face.

Try dabbing some Lumière de Vie® Micellar Cleanser on a cotton pad to remove your makeup. This is an all-in-one, waterless cleanser that gently removes makeup and purifies skin with no need to rinse or scrub. Scientifically designed with micelle molecules that lift dirt, makeup and impurities on contact, this advanced formula cleanses and conditions without clogging pores, making it the perfect choice for all skin types.

3. Wash your face

Double cleansing your face is important. This ensures you have removed any excess debris for a fully fresh and blemish-free face.

To avoid any last minute disturbances in your skin, use a soap-free product like Lumière de Vie Facial Cleanser. This helps to moisturize while cleansing, refreshing and invigorating the skin. The appearance of rough, dry skin is visibly diminished, creating skin that is softer and smoother.

4. Tone your skin

Now, your face will be clean and product-free, which means it’s time tone and bring your skin back to its prime pH level.

Grab a gentle toner, like the Lumière de Vie Toner, and apply the toner to cleansed skin using a cotton pad, then gently massage into the face and neck in small, circular motions with your fingertips. Allow the toner to absorb into the skin before applying treatments or moisturizer. Follow with Lumière de Vie Serum Concentrate, Lumière de Vie Illuminating Fading Fluid and Lumière de Vie Intense Rejuvenation Crème for best results.

5. Perfect your complexion

It’s common to skip this step, but we highly recommend against it! The protective properties of serums are absolutely worth it for gorgeous date night skin.

We like to use a hydrating serum, like Lumière de Vie Serum Concentrate, suitable for all skin types. Apply evenly to your face. This is the next generation skincare that utilizes nature and science with effective brighteners, powerful antioxidants and the power of the sea. Potent extracts that promote healthy skin collagen for firmer-looking skin, while reducing the appearance of fine lines, delivering extreme radiance, clarity and renewal.

6. Keep hydrated

This is key for that dewy glow beloved by all,

The best moisturizers are the ones that also protect you from the sun. Use a product like Lumière de Vie Intense Rejuvenation Crème to hydrate and protect your face. Let your skin absorb a super-hydrating, intensive repair treatment developed for chronically-stressed skin and designed to work with the skin’s renewal process. An ultra rich, fast-absorbing formula specifically formulated to reduce the appearance of lines, wrinkles and age spots as it imparts skin with the look of improved radiance and newly-found firmness.

It’s stressful enough worrying about what to order at dinner, don’t let the threat of breakouts and dry skin rain on your romantic nights out.

7. Finish with a spritz

Don’t forget a little spritz of Lumière de Vie Rosé Refresher!  Aloe and Botanimoist effectively soothe and moisturize for skin that feels soft and smooth to the touch, while Phytic Acid brightens for a more refined, radiant complexion. This versatile mist is a pick-me-up for your skin that instantly refreshes makeup and provides long-lasting hydration. Revitalize, renew and reset skin with this calming rosewater toner. Plus, it smells good too!
