Wick-edly Sent Acne Detox Soap

We’ve been on the topic of face care for the past few posts because it’s such an important topic for the way you look, feel and your general well-being.  Now we’ll move on to the topic of acne and how you can treat it using Wick-edly Sent’s Acne Detox Soap. Most people think of acne as a teenage complaint, but in fact, acne can be a challenge at any age.  Acne is caused by blockages in skin follicles.  These blockages  collect bacteria and can result in blackheads, inflammation or red splotching. Some of the causes of Acne are: Heredity Puberty Heightened Stress levels Dead skin cells that aren’t exfoliated Bacteria Scratching Adverse reaction to medications Some chemicals Not all people are affected by these factors and different people react to some more than others. There are a variety of ways to get rid of acne as well as to reduce the signs of it.  If you are prone to severe cases, we recommend you see your dermatologist for medical treatment. Whether your case is mild or severe, most doctors agree that you lower the risk of acne breakouts by cleansing your face regularly with a soap designed specifically to treat acne. In our Acne Detox Soap we use an all natural blend starting with fuller’s earth clay as a base to pull toxins from your skin.  We also add real lavender and tea tree essential oil and combine these ingredients with oatmeal to balance and calm your skin.  We recommend that you use the soap regularly, but sparingly, and discontinue use if skin irritation occurs. Our all natural acne...

5 Tips for Healthy Summer Skin and Face Care

Ah, summer!  Picnics, ball games, swimming in the pool or at the beach, boating, gardening, hiking and just enjoying the out-of-doors…these are the wonders of summer!  But all these activities can put the skin at risk for over-exposure to the elements and skin cell damage.  During summer months, It is especially important to develop a regular practice of healthy skin and face care. Cleanse Daily – Use a gentle cleanser morning and night that rids the body of harmful pore clogging elements.  Be sure that you remove makeup before going to bed and look for face cleansing and toning products rich in antioxidants to promote healthy skin. Drink Plenty of Water – Water is important for cell hydration.  Since approximately 65% of the human body is composed of water, replenishing water is essential for healthy summer skin and face care.  Drink six to eight glasses of water each day to cleanse the body of toxins and to rehydrate. Eat foods high in antioxidants – By selecting foods that are high in antioxidants, you reduce free radicals that damage cells.  According to the USDA, a diet high in antioxidants reduces the risk of many diseases and promotes health throughout the body.  As a general rule of thumb, the brighter the fruit or vegetable color, the higher they are in antioxidants. Use Moisurizer – A moisturizer acts as a shield against harsh environmental elements that can age the skin.  For healthy summer skin and face care, choose a moisturizer that contains antioxidants and natural products. Use Sun Screen – As popular as it is to have a healthy sun-kissed glow, the sun is skin’s worst...
