Toss away all of your old skin care products, and stock up on some new Dead Sea products! Refreshing your collection of beauty products every few months is as must; learn about the basic products you should always have around.

Clearing your old makeup and skin care products has many benefits. First, too much clutter and accumulated stuff are bad for the overall feeling in the space, and the energies that surround us- the less you have the more you use it! Second, it can be unhealthy to use old opened products that have been exposed to air, light and touch- bacteria can grow in those product and cause serious infections.

Therefore, the first step on the way to create your own skin care collection is to go over your existing products and sort them out. Once you are done, make sure you have all these basic skin care products:

Skin cleanser- No matter what you skin type is, skin cleanser is a must in every skin care routine. It cleans your skin from oil residues, eliminates bacteria and clear up pores. The result is clean, healthy looking skin.  We recommend you try Jericho’s Dead Sea Cleanser which opens up pores and gently and thoroughly removes makeup residue and impurities. Jericho’s Dead Sea Cleanser will refresh your skin gently without itching or stinging.

Daily moisturizer- Even the most delicate skin of all, babies’ skin, loses moisture throughout the day.  Therefore, keeping your skin moisturized is one of the most important skin care routines you should never skip. Rich with minerals from the Dead Sea, Jericho Moisturizing Day Cream protects your skin from harmful UV rays. Natural oils, aloe, vitamins and of course minerals from the Dead Sea make the Moisturizing Day Cream perfect for all skin types.

Eye Gel- The skin around the eyes is very delicate, and is at more risk for wrinkles then other facial skin parts. Therefore, don’t neglect your eye area, and use an eye gel on a daily basis. Jericho Eye Gel uses Dead Sea minerals and enriching moisture. Eye Gel by Jericho promotes a healthy look that is convenient for all skin types, because it contains an overflow of minerals including magnesium, sulfur, calcium, bromide and other beneficial minerals that maintain a glistening, new feel to your skin.

Facial mask- Yes, daily cleansing is important, but some impurities get stuck deep inside the skin, and require stronger ways of cleansing. Use facial scrubs on a weekly basis to get rid of all dead skin cells, and apply a purifying mask two to three times a week to get the maximum results and achieve a glowing, healthy looking skin.

Halloween is almost here… While decorating your home with spooky spider webs and skeletons, you are probably working on your costume for this year’s party. Since costumes usually involve makeup, glitters and glue, here are some safety tips to help you keep a healthy, clear looking skin after all the parties are over.

Halloween makes us all feel like children again; the joy of putting on a costume, even if it’s just for one night, is priceless. But then again, as adults, we must take a few precautions if we want to drop the costume without keeping that witch look on our skin… Costumes, make-up and funny shoes are all fun to try on, but here are some pointers that will help you get through Halloween without affecting your skin and your health:

  • Latex Masks- Don’t wear masks if you know you are allergic to latex. If you have sensitive skin, the latex in the mask might cause irritation. Even if you’re not allergic, it’s important to clean your face with facial soap and toner in order to clear the pores, since latex mask might cut the air flow to the skin, causing excess sweat. Having clear pores may prevent infections and breakouts.
  • Glue- Thinking of gluing a beard on your face? You might want to reconsider that… even special glue that is safe to use on the face can cause rashes, irritations and blemishes. Be very careful when applying glue on the face, and never apply near the delicate eye area.
  • Halloween Makeup- In order to get the right effect for your costume, you might need to use excessive makeup, not necessarily the kind of makeup you use on a daily basis. In order to avoid bad skin reactions, make sure to try out the makeup a few days before Halloween, and see if your skin develops a bad reaction. Also, choose products that are suitable for your skin type. Finally, be extra careful around the eyes area and don’t use any of these products too close to your eyes.
  • Bacteria Free Makeup- Bacteria can lurk in makeup and infection can easily travel from one person to another by sharing the same products. Try not to borrow any of your friends makeup, especially not any eye products such as mascara, eyeliner etc. Another good tip to avoid contamination is to use disposable sponges and applicators. Don’t be tempted to use last years’ Halloween makeup- old cosmetics are the perfect place for bacteria to grow.
  • Clean Your Skin- The most important thing to do is to clean all makeup residues at the end of the evening. Don’t be tempted to crash into bed with your makeup still on! Removing all off your make-up is important to avoid breakouts and allergic reactions the next day. Use Jericho Makeup Removing Facial Wipes to remove makeup, and then wash your face with a Foaming Facial Scrub. After patting the skin dry, apply Jericho Skin Toner to eliminate any impurities that may be still hiding beneath the skin’s surface.

Jericho Skincare Tip: 2010 most popular costumes are Lady Gaga, Alice in Wonderland, Neytiri (Avatar), Queen of Hearts, and of course, Vampires!

Leaves are falling, the sun is fading and the air smells like rain… the changing season is not only changing the view, but also the skincare choices we make.

Fall is a wonderful season, a time for reflection, slowing down and getting back on track after a fierce summer. As the season change, so should your skincare routine. Lucky for us, Dead Sea minerals have special nutrients that nourish the skin, and help restore its natural balance.

Mineral Skincare

To achieve a healthy looking skin, it is important to adjust your skincare routine according to the changing weather. During the fall it’s recommended to exfoliate the skin at least once a week to get rid of any dead skin cells accumulated over the summer.  Also, since the fall air is drier then summer, you might want to switch to a slightly heavier moisturizer, which will nourish your skin with extra moisturizers.  Jericho’s Exfoliating Facial Mask exfoliates and renews the skin in minutes, thanks to the natural grains blended with aromatic oils and Dead Sea minerals. This concentrated blend of Walnut Shell Powder, Jojoba Oil and Chamomile Extract helps rejuvenate your complexion and makes the skin soft and silky. You should also try Jericho Pearl Mask, which offers deep nourishment and is wonderful during fall and winter time. The Pearl Mask helps restore hydration while softening your skin, so you might use it at least twice a week (and even 3 times if you have dry skin).

Mineral Hair Care

The dry whether affects our hair as well; a haircut is the healthiest way to get read of those summer splits and dead ends. Now is the perfect time to revive your hair by treating it with care. Jericho Mineral Hair Mask for dry hair is especially recommended, since it is enriched with Dead Sea salt and Jojoba oil. The mask strengthens your hair and keeps it shiny and healthy, while returning the moisture, softness and volume to the hair.

Update Your Makeup

When switching from summer to fall, there are a few things you need to do about your makeup. First, go through your makeup and toss away old foundation, sponges and other products that can be contaminated by bacteria. Second, get yourself a heavier, more elegant foundation and invest in a good concealer.  You won’t believe the difference a concealer can make, just by hiding some of the under-eye circles.

Makeup shades depend mostly on fashion trends and you personal complexion, but make sure to adjust your colors to more season appropriate colors, like deep purple, luscious red, and grey. Also change your sheer summer lip gloss with creamier lipsticks.

Jericho Skincare Tip: When using bold colors remember to keep a balance and not over do it- if you’re highlighting the eyes use a nude shade on your lips and vice versa.
