product spotlight: hydra-pure™ oil-free moisture

Happy First Day of Summer, readers! Isn’t it funny how a small change to your daily routine can be a major improvement? I’ve been feeling a little oily lately, which is odd for me — and then I realized that I hadn’t yet switched out my daily moisturizer to an oil-free formula!

Why is this important? Which one is my favorite? Read on!

product spotlight: QVC TSV EXCLUSIVE the wrinkle fighters

I am SO excited to finally spill the beans on this — today only, DGSkincare is sharing an exclusive kit, The Wrinkle Fighters, on QVC as Today’s Special Value! A $260 value, you can snag this set for more than 50% off at the unbelievable price of $124.95.

Dr. Gross put this set together because it addresses all visible signs of aging on the entire face, neck, and décolleté, which is why he gives it to all of the patients that visit his practice. This unstoppable anti-aging trio contains Ferulic Acid + Retinol Brightening Solution, Ferulic + Retinol Triple Correction Eye Serum, and the Alpha Beta Peel – your choice of Original or Extra Strength.

When you prep your skin with Alpha Beta Peels, you’ll reveal fresh, radiant skin (with smaller pores!) ready for the application of Ferulic Acid + Retinol Brightening Solution and Ferulic + Retinol Triple Correction Eye Serum. The power of Ferulic + Retinol works to fight aging at the surface level and beyond, including fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin texture, and dull skin – and the eye serum targets the entire eye area, including crepey, tired-looking eyelids.

These are our three bestsellers – and with good reason. Have you seen these stats?

exclusive father’s day gift set + BIG news!

Hey readers! Father’s Day is coming up this Sunday, June 16th — have you bought that special man in your life a gift yet? I personally have always had trouble picking a gift for my dad. He’s hard to shop for, and I’m always trying to find something that he’ll both like and actually use.

If you’re in the same boat, or just looking for something different than what you usually give your dad (ties? Tools? Grill-related equipment? Been there, done all of that), then consider skincare! I put together a special duo for dads, “Dad’s Essentials,” that consists of the father-friendly products Botanical Cleansing Bar and Age Erase Moisture for Face.

Botanical Cleansing Bar is great for everyone, but I’ve found that men like it because it’s a great multitasker: you can wash your face and body with it (my dad washes his hair with it, too!) as it’s hydrating and exfoliating. As for Age Erase Moisture for Face, it’s one of my favorite products from DGSkincare – I put it on before bed and it leaves my skin super soft.

If you haven’t visited DGSkincare’s Facebook page recently, you might not know that we’re counting down to something MAJOR this Monday, June 17th. We’ve all been gearing up big time for this, and I know you’re going to love it. Check back here or on dgskincare.com on Monday to find out what it is!

How do you celebrate Father’s Day?

will the SPF/anti-aging connection surprise you?

If you’re passionate about skincare and sun protection, I hope you haven’t missed the scientific study that both the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal wrote up this week.

Believe it or not, there hadn’t been “hard evidence” to support that sunscreen prevents photoaging before this study was published. The study, conducted over 4.5 years, consisted of 900 white Australians between 25 and 55 years of age. All were provided with an SPF 15+ to apply — half were asked to use it as they normally would, while the other half were assigned to daily use.

According to the Annals of Internal Medicine, those who applied sunscreen daily showed 24% less skin aging than those who used sunscreen inconsistently. Their skin was smoother with fewer wrinkles and more elastic (less sagging).

What do you think about this? I’m personally not at all surprised – Dr. Gross, along with most dermatologists, highly touts the benefits of using sunscreen regularly. (After all, he does have background as a skin cancer researcher!) I’ll admit, it can be hard to remember to apply sunscreen daily – at least for me – even though any sun exposure at all can cause skin damage.

I’m going to Florida this weekend, and while Tropical Storm Andrea may be crashing my vacation, I’ll be sure to load up on Powerful Sun Protection SPF 45. Psst! In a few weeks, we’ll be launching a new sunscreen — a physical sunscreen that’s a mineral mist — and it’s super easy to apply. I’m very excited about it, and I’ll keep you posted on more info!

What are your biggest concerns when it comes to sun exposure? Why? And what are your weekend plans?

get the look: my picks for spring – an exclusive set!

Now is the month of maying, and I am absolutely loving this radiant spring weather! How about you? Even if the weather in your neck of the woods isn’t super sunny, you can still get a complexion to match this beautiful month! I put together a fun trio of spring essentials just for dgskincare.com fans — and that includes you, my lovely blog reader.

Personally, I find that as the weather warms up, I have a few very specific desires for my skin’s appearance. I want it to look clean, fresh, dewy, and radiant, and I also want to start lightening up my makeup routine. The kit I’ve put together, “Eternal Spring,” contains everything I need to achieve the spring complexion of my dreams.

1)    All-In-One Cleanser with Toner

As I may have mentioned around here, I am terrible at remembering to take off my makeup. This cleanser gently washes away dirt, oil, and even waterproof makeup while soothing and balancing skin.

2)    Alpha Beta® Glow Pad for Face

As you may have guessed, this is a face-sized version of our Alpha Beta Glow Pad for Body. It’s exfoliating, so it reduces pore size (a must!) as well as firming skin and smoothing fine lines and wrinkles. It contains Active Vitamin D, so you can get the benefits of “the sunshine vitamin” as well as a natural-looking glow without the harmful side effects of the sun’s rays.

3)    Hydra-Pure™ Oil-Free Moisture

My skin is often dry, but when weather gets warmer, I don’t get rid of my moisturizer – I just switch to a lighter formula! This one makes my skin feel like velvet without feeling greasy. It contains powerful anti-aging ingredients as well as a unique Chelating Complex™ to detoxify skin of harmful agents, including heavy metals.

You can get all these products for just $200 (that’s a steal, trust me!) or you can check out each product individually. We have other great spring skincare value sets — some perfect for Mother’s Day! — and I invite you to check them out. You’ll never know what kind of deal you’ll find!

Besides using this kit, I take my dog on a walk in the sunshine to get my best spring skin. How do you get your spring glow? 

product spotlight: alpha beta® glow pad for body

Happy Friday! I don’t know how the weather has been in your neighborhood lately, but here in Manhattan, it’s finally starting to warm up and really feel like spring. Not only am I excited to switch from a down jacket to a trench, but I’m more than ready to start wearing more skirts and dresses.

The only thing that keeps me from baring my legs is the fact that my legs are blindingly pale from being cooped up all winter. But now that I use Alpha Beta® Glow Pad for Body, I no longer have to worry.  Read on for benefits!
