As many of you who have chronic troubles with dry skin are probably well aware, winter is coming. And it is bringing along with it the cold, dry weather that will zap your skin of moisture leaving it flaky and cracked. Those with dry skin are all too aware of the condition that the impending holiday season leaves their skin in while all they can do is stockpile chap-stick and sit by the calendar, counting the days until spring. Well to all of the dry skinned winter-hermits. Here are just a few tips to keep your skin from getting dried out and irritated in general to help you through the impending winter months.
1. Limit Hot Shower Time
There are few things better than coming in from a frigid winter day and stepping directly into a steaming hot shower for an extended period of time. Long steamy showers feel great at the time but just like most things, too much of a good thing isn’t healthy. In this instance, too much extremely hot water will dry out your skin and leave it in a state that will make it all the easier for a brisk winter breeze to damage it further and possibly crack it. Try your best to limit your shower time to no more than 15 minutes or so to prevent giving the winter season an edge on drying out your skin.
2. Don’t Forget to Protect Yourself
It is easy to let something like protecting your skin from the sun slip your mind in the dreariness of winter. Applying daily sunscreen seems like such a summer and spring activity making it simple to justify not protecting yourself. But, the harmful UV rays of the sun unfortunately take no holiday. The cold dry weather along with the sun form a dermal-damage tag team that, if gone unprotected, could harm and irritate your skin on multiple levels. Don’t forget to use some kind of moisturizing UV protection, before leaving home if you want to maintain a healthy, youthful appearance this winter.
3. Avoid Scented Soaps
Using fancy scented soaps and body washes may make your skin smell nice but they more times than not dry out your skin and leave it more vulnerable to the elements. The scent used in many of said soaps is often alcohol based which means the alcohol-infused scent is applied to the skin and soon after evaporates off, leaving just the scent. The problem here is that with the alcohol often takes your skins essential oils with it when it evaporates, leaving your skin dried out. Stick to moisturizing soap to keep your skin looking plump and healthy.
Of course, these are simply preventative measures you can take on top of your existing skin care regimen. To actively fight dry, flaky skin you need a line of moisturizing products that are proven to work in the toughest conditions. Tamara’s offers an array of moisturizers, lotions and serums. Don’t wait until its too late! Take action now and and see how Tamara’s can save your skin this winter.

This holiday season show your friends and family how well you have been doing this past year by showing up with the healthiest, most radiant skin you have ever had! Out of all of the amazing ingredients found in any one of Lira Clinical’s products, there is one that deserves special accolades when it comes to lightening your skin: Arbutin. This natural molecule is pivotal in making your skin more vibrant and bright than you could have imagined.
Arbutin is an extract from the bearberry plant that naturally suppresses the formation of melanin in your skin. This means that it actively stops dark spots before they form and even your skin tone out leaving it bright and beautiful. The best part about this amazing substance, besides how incredibly effective it is, is that it is completely natural! Most lightening agents you would find in skin care products use a chemical-based bleaching agent like hydroquinone which damages your skin over time. You deserve to know what you are putting on your skin and you will not have to think twice when using the natural ingredients in Lira Clinical’s products.
Get lightening now so you can be the most radiant, confident you when it comes time for the holidays. Try Lira’s PRO Lite as well as the BB Brite solutions, both of which contain the scientific miracle that is arbutin. But why stop there? Lira Clinical’s lines of skin care products address all kinds of skin issues of varying severities so give me a call today at 714-470-2329 today for your one stop skin care solution!

retinol reduces appearance of fine wrinkles
Retinol acts as an antioxidant repairing damaged skin cells, and preventing future damage. When used regularly, retinol can reduce signs of aging and improve skin’s elasticity and youthful appearance. When used as a preventative measure, it can help prevent skin from forming fine lines and wrinkles as we age.
It can be a bit confusing trying to choose a retinol product. There are so many products on the market claiming to offer many of the same benefits to your skin. Tamara’s offers a great retinol-based skincare regimen to help rejuvenate and repair your skin.
If you’ve got a slight to severe case of skin discoloration, retinol may be the answer to evening out your skin tone and revealing a more glowing complexion hiding behind those spots. The exfoliating properties in retinol help slough off dead skin cells, leaving lighter, brand new cells in their place.
We all get that stubborn pimple every now and then, but some of us have much worse cases of persistent adult acne. That’s when retinol steps in to save the day (well, your skin)! It helps unplug your follicles and exfoliate the skin, leaving your pores clear. At the same time, retinol helps to reduce the bacteria, which causes breakouts on your skin. Dermatologists recommend products containing retinol to patients with acne concerns with a great success rate.
