5 Ways to Make Your Skin Care Routine Exciting Again

Make your skin care routine exciting again

If you’re like most people, you wash your face twice daily to practice good skin care hygiene. But if you’ve been sticking to a skin care routine since middle school, we’re guessing you’re “going through the motions” of good hygiene. We’ve all been in ruts- that’s why we’re here to help ‘reVive’ your routine.

Changing your entire routine can be overwhelming (and pricey), so we’ve compiled 5 ways to make your current routine exciting again without needing a big budget.

 

Add Facials

Facials can be an at-home DIY project or you can “treat yo’self” to a professional facial. Whichever method you prefer, facials can be an excellent way to unwind all while cleansing, exfoliating, nourishing, and promoting a clearer complexion.

 

Steam Your Face

Don’t have time for a full on facial session but still want a relaxing activity that opens your pores? Steaming your face is an easy way to achieve that.

  • Grab a microwavable bowl, fill 3/4th of the bowl with water
  • Put the bowl in the microwave for 5 minutes
  • Grab bowl with towel
  • Place the bowl on the table and with the towel over your head
  • Hover your face above the water for 5-7 minutes

For an invigorating pore purification, add herbal steams. They can make the air smell great, too.

 

Natural scrub

There are several cost-effective ways to exfoliate your skin, but this idea surely takes the cake as a cheap solution to slough off dead skin cells. Cut a lemon in half and dip one half in sugar while the other is wrapped in tinfoil until next use. With the lemon half covered in sugar, gently rub in circular motions on to damp skin. When finished, wash your face with luke-warm water.

 

LED Light Therapy

You were waiting for that one, huh? Even though light therapy isn’t a new innovation, it has recently been made accessible to consumers. With proven technology and clinical results, who wouldn’t want to add light therapy to their current skin care routine? Our lights are FDA cleared and FSA approved. Shameless plug to advertise our efficacy. See our lights in action with our influencer, Beauty By Anne-Marie. Her results are stunning.

 

Green Tea Extracts

Green tea extracts can be applied to your skin after cleansing. Adding herbal products to your routine has been known to demonstrate anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects. Green tea may have anti-aging effects by reducing inflammation and hunting down free radicals. You can also pair green tea extract with our LED light therapy anti-aging system to see the green tea work up to 10 times faster.

 

You shouldn’t have to mindlessly tend to your skin. Give these refreshing tips a try and let us know which idea made you excited to wash your face.

4 Reasons Why You Should Give Up Straws Once and For All

Straws damage the environment and straws damage you.

They may be convenient, but they’re evil. After reading this article we’re hoping you’ll be thoroughly horrified and telling everyone in your life that you’re giving up straws for good.

First, you should know people use a boatload of straws. The NPS says Americans alone use 500 million drinking straws daily. DAILY.

And here are the reasons you should give up straws.

  • Duck face can cause fine lines around upper and lower lips.
    At reVive Light Therapy, we make beauty products. So let’s talk wrinkles. Sucking from a straw causes the lips to be in a state of pursing, which invites premature wrinkling to settle in, especially when the expression is repeated. Oh? What’s that? You’re on the Forehead Scrunch Police? The Lip Line Task Force is in dire need of your help. Here’s a helpful sentencing: daily usage of reVive Light Therapy anti-aging devices. Our lights stimulate collagen and plump skin back up, making wrinkles less severe. Lip wrinkles from straws be gone!Check this out. 500 million straws per day * 365 days / 325 million Americans * 6 sips per 20oz, the typical medium-sized fountain drink (we’re being ultra conservative by assuming you always take large, brain-freezing, dying-of-thirst sized sips) = you purse your lips 3,369 times per year—or nearly 10 times every day.*
  • Air into intestines = unpleasantness.
    Drinking through a straw makes you swallow air, which can cause stomach bloating, digestion issues, uncomfortable abdominal cramping, and… the last part in the process. The part where the air escapes, when you’re in a job interview or on a first date. THE STRAW CAUSED THAT.
  • Want artificial teeth? Use straws! 🙂
    Drinking through straws blasts teeth with staining liquids and chemicals which break down enamel. By the way, contrary to what certain toothpaste or mouthwash ads may have you believe, damage to tooth enamel is permanent. Your body can’t rebuild tooth enamel since no living cells are found within enamel. If you like straws, you should get used to the idea of dental veneers or dentures. What’s up George Washington? We see you.
  • Straws are damaging to oceanic wildlife.
    News flash: Many plastic straws are not recyclable. And what happens to straws once they’ve been used? Many end up in the ocean where they threaten natural habitats. It takes plastic a bazillion years to fully decompose. Straws are found all the time in stomachs of whales, piercing sea turtles’ nostrils, and disrupting the natural beauty of our oceans.

 

Bottom line: stop using straws.

 

*Pro tip: If you’ve used one too many straws, reVive’s LED Light Therapy devices use scientifically-proven technology to help reverse those pesky lines using infrared and other specific wavelengths of light. Ch-ch-check it out here.

An Open Letter to Skin

An Open Letter to Skin

quotation-mark

They say you should love the skin you’re in.

I am covered in you. You’ve been with me since the beginning of my time. We’ve felt fresh rain drops, we’ve experienced uncomfortable peeling, we grew from pea size to full grown adult, we have been cut, scraped, and bled. We have felt the pain from needles and burns but also felt a loving touch and kisses. We have been through everything together.

To the skin I call “home,” I have been a terrible tenet. I’ve picked, pulled, popped, antagonized, and irritated you. I’ve disrespected you and didn’t think twice. From leaving you unprotected and vulnerable in the sun to neglecting moisturizers, I feel guilty.

As I look back at photos of us, I get a sudden nostalgia. The supple yet firm, clear, undamaged glow is something I relentlessly search for at the bottom of a product bottle; I wish instead I had tended to your needs since day one.

Life is about moving forward. As badly as I wish to reverse my careless ways, I must press on with thoughtful decisions with you in mind.

I only get one you. I will learn ways to keep you healthy. Above all, I will be kind to you. Skin, I see and feel you constantly. It’s time for me to start demonstrating my appreciation for you. I vow to put in the work to see you thrive for the years to come.

Here’s to our newfound journey: the skin project.

LED light therapy is the first step I will take to make sure you’re feeling better than ever. I’ve seen the results; light therapy is medically proven and I know what it can do for us. Red, Amber, and Infrared LED lights will erase the times we spent outside without UV protection. Blue LED lights will destroy the bad bacteria burrowed in your glands to reveal a clearer you. In addition to the lights, I vow to apply moisturizer, sun block, and get enough rest so that you may repair and regenerate healthy cells for a more radiant you. I know this will take time. Nothing is overnight.

But one thing is for sure. I love the skin I’m in, and I will do everything in my power to keep you healthy.
