For those with oily or acne prone skin, the new CosMedix Shineless Moisturizer ($48) is a beauty bag must-have. This lightweight, oil-free moisturizer is free of parabens, silicone, and animal products, utilizes nourishing ingredients to control the skin’s oil levels, delivers deep hydration, and provides a matte complexion.

Let’s break down the ingredients, shall we?

  • Lilac stem cells help control and balance oil levels, reduce the appearance of redness, and make skin smoother over time.
  • Prickly pear cactus extract contains linoleic acids, Vitamin E, and natural anti-inflammatory agents, which calm and soothe dry, irritated skin.
  • Niacinamide, aka Vitamin B3, stimulates the production of fatty acids to brighten, plump, and firm your skin. This essential vitamin also fills in holes in your skin’s moisture barrier to help your skin retain moisture.

CosMedix Shineless Moisturizer is available at milk + honey’s 2nd Street District, Hill Country Galleria, Houston, and South Lamar locations.

NuFace’s new Prep-N-Glow cloths are a beauty bag must-have.  These easy-to-use wipes remove dirt, oil, makeup, and other impurities that leave you with a soft and cleansed complexion.

The 411 on NuFace Prep-N-Glow Cloths

Nuface’s dual-sided cloths are designed to cleanse, hydrate, and gently exfoliate your skin. First, use the smooth side to cleanse your face. The soft cotton side removes makeup, dirt, and oil to leave you with a smooth, unblemished complexion. Then, switch to the textured side to gently exfoliate your skin. The micro-dots remove impurities that are trapped in your pores. Both sides of the cloth contain hyaluronic acid, antioxidants, and minerals, all of which give you a refreshed and beautifully glowing complexion.

“I always carry these Prep-N-Glow Cloths in my bag. After a workout, I’ll quickly cleanse my face with these cloths to remove any sweat and dirt. I love how it gives my skin a refreshed and clean feeling.” — Summer S., Managing Director of Operations

NuFace’s Prep-N-Glow Cloths are free of oil, alcohol, and parabens. You can use these wipes as part of your daily routine and they’re ideal for prepping before a NuFace treatment.

About NuFace

NuFace is the brainchild of famed esthetician Carol Cole. As an esthetician, her clients would always ask her for anti-aging product recommendations. With the help of her daughters, Carol decided to launch the first NuFace device in 2005. NuFace devices utilize non-invasive microcurrent technology and help to reduce signs of aging. They are the only FDA-certified, at-home, non-invasive devices on the market.

NuFace’s Prep-N-Glow Cloths are available at all milk + honey locations.

Meet Nature’s Natural Pain Reliever: Arnica

March 24, 2017

 

arnica group (b)

Next time you’re feelin’ those aches and pains, reach for nature’s antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory herb: arnica. Used as a cure for everything from sprains to eczema, this plant has been used as a homeopathic remedy for centuries.

What is Arnica?

arnica-montana

Known as Arnica montana, Arnica is a bright, yellow, daisy-like flower found in the mountains and upland meadows in Europe, Siberia, and North America. Legend has it that this plant was first discovered by humans after watching injured goats trek up a mountain in search of Arnica to heal themselves. The first documented medical use of this flowering plant dates back to the 1500s; although, many historians believe it has been used in healing remedies since the Middle Ages.

How does Arnica work?

Known for its anti-inflammatory properties, Arnica is packed with the natural chemical, helenalin. This potent compound works to relieve trauma and speed up the healing time of bruises. Arnica reduces swelling by stimulating the body’s white blood cells. This causes a breakdown of fluid and excess blood that’s trapped within muscles, joints, and bruises. But that’s not all. To speed up recovery from bruises, it increases the number of white blood cells within the body to stop busted capillaries from bleeding into the surrounding tissue. Along with aiding in swelling and bruises, it’s been proven to treat and temporarily relieve pain. Recent studies have even found that it’s a safe alternative to treat arthritis pain.

Ask the professional.

To get the inside scoop on arnica, we asked our 2nd Street District massage therapist, Terri, how she uses our popular Arnica Balm during massages. “Arnica can be used in any massage, not just a Deep Tissue or Sports Massage,” she says. When treating a client, Terri will ask them which specific areas need more attention. Before the massage, she’ll pre-treat certain areas that clients have indicated as target spots in order to relax the muscles and alleviate any soreness they might feel after their treatment. After the massage, Terri will tell her clients how to use the balm to soothe muscle or joint pain. “I suggest that clients use the balm before working out or doing any type of physical activity to loosen up the joints and muscles. Then, after any strenuous workouts, I’ll tell them to get a small amount of the balm and really work it into a particular area.”

Which milk + honey products contain Arnica?
