    September - a month that carries the gentle transition from the balmy breezes of summer to the vibrant hues of autumn, a period of dramatic transformations not just in seasons but also in lifestyles and spirits.

  7. 5 WAYS ANY MAN CAN TAKE CARE OF THEIR SKIN

    5 WAYS ANY MAN CAN TAKE CARE OF THEIR SKIN
    Taking care of yourself starts with your skin, but with the hustle and bustle of everyday life, it can be hard to take some time for yourself and indulge in some self-care. However, it’s important to start these habits now, because maintaining your skincare routine will be a life-saver in the long haul. Here are some of our tips to help men keep their skin glowing and healthy! Know your skin type Starting up a skincare routine begins with understanding your skin type and what products will work best for you. For example, oily and acne-prone skin may need a stronger face wash or exfoliator, while dry skin may need gentler and more moisturizing products. Try to avoid products you know will irritate or damage your skin, and go for something you know will be gentle on your skin. Schedule out time to take care of your skin For the men constantly on-the-go, it can be difficult to maintain a consistent routine. If you’re having a hard time with this consistency, try to make a schedule of exactly when you will use your line of skin care products and stick to it! For example, you may want to start your day with a face wash and use face purifying masks once or twice a week at certain times to help unwind. If you need help sticking to a schedule, try setting daily alarms or reminders on your phone to hold yourself accountable! Creating and sticking to a schedule will help keep your skin healthy and looking its best.  Make sure you’re giving yourself a clean shave Getting a clean shave is a key foundation of having healthy, glowing skin. Make sure you have a versatile shaving kit that will give you a clean shave and the proper pre-shave and aftershave products for a smooth and cut-free finish. Having aged or rusty razors, especially for men with sensitive skin-type, can damage your skin and leave you with unwanted nicks and cuts. Keep your skin moisturized Although winter is coming to a close, it’s important to make sure that your skin is properly hydrated during this change in seasons. Do some digging and find a moisturizer that will not only cooperate with your skin type but will also work well with your other skincare products. Skincare is not just about the individual products, but rather how they all interact with each other to give you glowing and healthy skin. This process may take some trial and error, so don’t be afraid to experiment as you go. As the weather changes and summer approaches, you’ll also want to use a moisturizer along with a natural sunscreen with UV protection to keep sunburns at bay. Use hand sanitizer when necessary When you come in contact with germs and don’t have time or resources to wash your hands, use hand sanitizer to keep yourself healthy and happy. During this global COVID-19 pandemic, it’s more important than ever to stay healthy and keep your hands clean and free from harmful germs and bacteria. Although it’s recommended to thoroughly wash your hands with soapy warm water, using hand sanitizer can help prevent illness and keep germs away. If you’re in need of hand sanitizer, check out ours! Sticking to a skincare regimen can be difficult between your career and your day-to-day responsibilities, but it will prove worth it in the long run. We hope these tips inspire you to start and maintain healthy habits for your skin.

    When & How to Use Hand Sanitizer in Community Settings
    Wash Hands Frequently. Wash hands with soap and water. If that isn't available, use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.

    The CDC (Center for Disease Control and Prevention ) recommends washing hands with soap and water whenever possible because handwashing reduces the amounts of all types of germs and chemicals on hands. But if soap and water are not available, using a hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol can help you avoid getting sick and spreading germs to others. The guidance for effective handwashing and the use of hand sanitizer in community settings was developed based on data from a number of studies.

  10. 4 Simple Tips For Healthy Summer Skin

    4 Simple Tips For Healthy Summer Skin


    It’s summertime and the living’s easy. Whether you’re headed to the beach or simply enjoying the weather in your own backyard, if you want to maintain healthy skin this summer, you must be proactive. The Jersey Shore Cosmetics team offers endless products to keep all areas of your body protected during the warm-weather months and beyond. Below, we’re including some ways in which you can keep your skin looking and feeling its best this season and always. 

    Lather on the SPF

    After spending the winter months trapped inside, once we get a taste of the sun, we want to spend as much time in it as possible. However, the sun’s UVA and UVB rays can do a number on your skin if left unprotected. Our Sans Tan Anti-Aging Mineral Sunscreen contains UVA/UVB broad-spectrum protection with an SPF 30. It is dermatologist recommended, safe for all skin tones and types, contains anti-aging properties, with no banned or toxic ingredients and is even safe for all marine life! With the added bonus of aloe vera leaf juice and hyaluronic acid, applying this sunscreen will leave your skin feeling hydrated and refreshed. It’s true that big things come in small packages and this product certainly proves it.

    Bonus Tip: Don’t let your past skincare routine, or lack thereof, get in the way of giving your skin and hair a healthy future it deserves. It’s never too late to begin protecting yourself, while simultaneously repairing the damage that’s been done. Invest in a conditioner like this, to provide your hair with the moisture and hydration it craves. Over time, you will find your hair to be softer and stronger which is all the more reason to protect it! 

    Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate! 

    Between trips to the beach and hanging out poolside, it’s likely you’ll be spending a lot of time in and around the water this summer season. However, if you’re not keeping up your H2O intake, your skin, and other parts of your body, will surely feel the effects. When it comes to consumption, the common recommendation is eight, eight-ounce glasses per day. This can vary from person to person and may need to be upped, especially in warmer temperatures. Drinking an adequate amount of water is essential to maintaining healthy skin, but it doesn’t stop there. Did you know dehydration affects brain function, digestion, and low blood pressure? It can also affect your mood, appetite, and quality of sleep. Constantly on the go, or on the tennis court, consider clean bottled spring water like Quattro H2O Pure Hydration Natural Spring Water to help you stay on track. For those who are more active, there’s Quattro H2O Pure Energy Caffeinated Pure Spring Water with 100 mg. of natural caffeine.

    Don’t Forget to Moisturize

    At times it may feel like a chore, but applying moisturizer to all areas of the body plays a large role in keeping your skin healthy. This becomes especially important following exposure to the sun. Much like your organs need water in order to function, your skin needs this same level of hydration. Some areas of the skin require more attention than others, and at times this can mean applying a range of products. If you’re the kind of person who likes to keep things simple, our Super Sativa Whole Body Butter is the perfect solution for you. This body butter is nourishing and gentle enough to be used on all parts of the body, yet hydrating enough to clear up those rough patches on areas like the knees and elbows. For best results, exfoliate with our African Black Soap Gentle Face and Body Scrub, then apply body butter directly after your bath or shower in order to lock in maximum hydration.   

    Go Faux

    Aside from a UVA/UVB blocking sunscreen, the best way to protect your skin from the sun is to stay out of it. While this may sound impossible, especially during the summer months, with a little effort, it can be done. Small steps, such as wearing a hat, dressing in fuller coverage clothing, sitting under an umbrella at the beach or by the pool, or making an effort to be in shaded areas whenever possible, are all great ways to escape a majority of the harmful rays given off by the sun. If these ideas sound great to you, but you’re concerned about missing out on sun-kissed skin, you’re in luck! Our Safe Tan, Tan Enhance, Hydrating Sunless Tanning Concentrate will give you the glow you’re looking for without the risk of over-exposure or skin damage. This lotion concentrate is added to your favorite face, and or body lotion and includes all-natural, vegan ingredients such as aloe-leaf and hyaluronic acid work on all skin tones, and even contains an anti-aging element. The result is a natural-looking tan, and if desired, a few more drops can be added for a deeper, richer tan.

    Skin is our body’s largest organ and it’s essential we protect it. During the summer months, in particular, our skin is exposed to a number of elements, the sun’s rays being one of the most damaging. With the proper application of an SPF, along with staying hydrated, moisturizing properly, and accepting that sometimes it’s just better to stay out of the sun altogether, you can maintain healthy skin this summer and many more to come.
