Did you know that managing your stress levels and teaching yourself to change the way you react to stressful situations can actually improve your complexion?

Our skin care products are backed by science and specially formulated for those who care about the health— as well as the beauty— of their skin. (This makes good sense, as a healthy skin is a beautiful skin.)

Sun Protection
Sun protection has been trumpeted by enough dermatologists and general health care experts that the public has begun getting the message. That doesn't necessarily mean that it has shown people the error of sitting in a tanning bed, but most people are at least aware of the dangers. At the risk of repeating a well-worn message, the dangers are very real. Sun exposure is not just the biggest contributor to melanoma, but it also contributes strongly to wrinkles, spots, and a variety of other issues. By using sunscreen, staying in the shade as often as possible, and wearing protective clothing, you can minimize the damage.

Hot water can dry out the skin by stripping some of its natural, necessary oils. For some of us, the skin gets even drier during the fall and winter months. Worse, excessive showering in very hot water can really cause problems for people with skin that is already super dry. Turn down the temperature while showering or bathing and you’ll do your skin a favor. It’s also a good idea to spend less time in the shower or cut back on how often you shower if it really isn’t necessary.

Baby Acne
Due to hormones, it’s common for some babies to develop cases of baby acne. While this is a harmless condition, it can cause concern in new parents. Baby acne is commonly seen in infants and babies that are a little over six months old. During changes in hormones, sometimes the oil glands can become clogged and acne may appear as red or white bumps, also known as milia. These are similar in appearance to what we call whiteheads, commonly seen in teens and adults. They often appear on areas of the forehead, cheeks, nose, and chin.

It’s important to understand that your baby’s skin is extremely sensitive and unable to tolerate the types of products used by adults. For this reason, it’s important to refrain from using any spot treatments that can be harsh or irritating.
Additional things to avoid:
  • Astringents
  • Picking at pimples
  • Using products not formulated for baby
To keep your baby’s skin clear, use a mild wash formulated for his or her skin. ResQ Organic Face and Body Wash is safe and gentle even for newborn skin. Avoid using harsh soaps that can strip the surface of the skin and throw off baby’s pH levels. Try to keep your child’s face clean and dry, especially after activities like feeding—as spit up and drool can make acne worse. If irritation from the breakout causes your baby to scratch at his or her face, you can have your child wear soft cloth mittens and also keep his or her nails short.

Some people believe that certain food choices and dieting habits—like those with high sugar and dairy content—may contribute to breakouts. If you feel that this could be the case, it’s best to speak with your doctor to determine what changes may be beneficial to your diet. Understandably, many new moms are prone to erring on the side of caution when making health choices that may affect mom and baby.

Luckily, it won’t be long before your baby’s acne resolves. Typically it takes just a few weeks for things to calm, leaving behind clear skin.

Post-pregnancy Acne
It’s also common for new moms to experience acne breakouts shortly after giving birth while hormones fluctuate. Post pregnancy, your skin may also be prone to increased redness, hyperpigmentation (called melasma) and different types of acne. While this may be frustrating, it’s important to take it in stride. Like your baby’s acne, post pregnancy breakouts are usually short-lived.

To encourage a healthy complexion, be sure to use ResQ Organics Face and Body Wash and to decrease dullness and increase radiance, exfoliate your skin with ResQ Organic Micro-derm Scrub twice a week and moisturize twice daily with ResQ Organic Skin Treatment. For issues with hyperpigmentation, limit your sun exposure during the peak hours of 10am and 3pm. If outdoors, you should keep your baby and yourself protected by spending time in areas that offer adequate shade.

Live yogurt a rich source of anti-ageing vitamin A and vitamin D, calcium and protein. It also contains cultures that can help your digestive system to absorb all these wrinkle-preventing nutrients more effectively. The words “live and active cultures” on the container mean that your yogurt has probiotics, which is the healthy bacteria that aids digestion.

Green Tea
Green tea has antioxidant properties that can counteract the effects of free radicals, which are byproducts of the body that can cause damage to cells and tissues. Green tea also contains polyphenols.  Polyphenols have antioxidant antibacterial, anticancer and antiviral properties.  Most of the polyphenols in green tea are catechins, which tend to function as skin anti-inflammatory and anticancer agents.

Walnuts can help prevent future damage by lowering stress levels. It is also a source of melatonin, which helps us, sleep better and allows our bodies repair themselves more quickly. Walnuts can also help with conditions like acne breakouts, wrinkles blotchiness, swelling and redness. Omega-3s are by nature anti-inflammatory and can help seal moisture into the skin and protect it from toxins and chemicals. . For example the alpha-linolenic acid in these omega-3s can work to combat the dryness associated with aging that leads to wrinkles.

Tomatoes contain an antioxidant called lycopene which helps eliminate skin-aging free radicals caused by ultraviolet rays Studies suggest that lycopene may help protect the skin against sun damage.  The most effective way of ingesting lycopene is through cooked tomatoes like sauce or paste.

Flaxseeds have a ton of omega-3 fatty acids, which help with fine lines. The British Journal of Nutrition reported that participants in one study who took about half a teaspoon of omega- 3s in 6 weeks experienced better-hydrated skin abd significantly less irritation and redness on their skin.

Sweet Potatoes
Sweet potatoes are packed with vitamin C, which smoothes out wrinkles by stimulating the production of collagen. A study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that people who ate 4 milligrams of C (half a small sweet potato) daily for 3 years decreased the appearance of wrinkles by 11 percent.

Eggs have Omega 3 fatty acids, protein, zinc and selenium all contributing to the anti aging effect.  But the egg yolks also contain another wrinkle fighting agent – biotin. Biotin is needed for cellular fat production in the body, which is critical for cell turnover and repairs damaged skin.

Men’s Skin Care
Men's skin care is often neglected, but guys' skin needs just as much care as women’s'- especially guys who shave regularly.

Men’s skin care has come a long way from the days when your father would wash his face with a withered bar of soap and cover up shaving nicks with bits of toilet paper. ResQ Organic Skin Care products for Men are specifically formulated to meet the needs of a man’s skin.

A man´s face attracts a fair amount of dirt. If we compare skin on a man´s face with a women´s it is very different. It contains larger pores, whiskers, more collagen and elastin a denser supply of blood vessels, and it also produces more sweat.

Many men wash exclusively with standard soap. Regular soap dries out skin, its ingredients clog pores and lead to rough and unhealthy skin. Most products hare highly alkaline at about 11ph! That creates an alkaline burn on your skin and makes it nearly impossible to repair and heal. Further, it could worsen any skin condition and in fact, create many different skin conditions. You should never use any product above you skins natural PH of 5.5. ResQ Organic Face and Body Wash is that product. ResQ Organic Face and Body Wash is pH balanced at 5.5 like your skin, promoting good skin health. You will see results in just a few days.

Why exfoliating is important for men?
Have you ever thought what Exfoliation is? Scrubbing off dead skin cells to reveal and expose “younger,” fresher skin is called Exfoliation. The shedding process, keeps skin clean, unclogs pores and it also helps reduce acne breakouts. ResQ Organic Micro-Derm Scrub is the perfect solutions for exfoliating a man’s skin. Exfoliation also helps men for a better shave, because it exposes the face’s hair follicles. Because men have hair all over their bodies it is recommended to exfoliate the face, chest and even the back. Hair traps dirt, grim and oil into the skin. It is recommended to exfoliate two times a week followed by ResQ Skin Organic Skin Treatment for Men.
