Too much fun in the sun.

You forgot to reapply and you have a sunburn…now what?

It’s summer!  And that means sand, boats, beaches, oceans and lots of fun…and lots and lots of sun.  Sometimes — no matter how hard you try, or how much sunscreen you put on — a day outside can mean you end up with a sunburn.

While sunburns aren’t ideal, we get real life and know that it happens.  So, what do you do if you get a burn? Immediately take care of your skin!
Here’s how:

First, start with our Green Tea & Pomegranate Antioxidant Cleanser. This soothing cleanser is designed to calm the skin and to alleviate redness and puffiness while also stimulating cellular regeneration, encouraging dead skin cells to move along and make way for newer, fresher skin. 

PS -> You can use this cleanser all over your face, scalp, and body.

 

 

 

Next, you’ll want to be sure to moisturize and protect your face with our Vitamin C+ Sheer Defense SPF if you’ll be out in the sun again soon. This lightweight sunscreen improves the appearance of fragile skin and helps with discoloration while also creating a powerful shield to protect skin from UVA/UVB rays.

 

 

 

 

If you’re heading to bed right after your burn, we suggest keeping your face ultra-moisturized with our Daily Facial Moisturizer SPF 30. Our lightweight yet super moisturizing cream is a mix of aloe vera, vitamin E, and botanical oils, which hydrates the skin without clogging pores. These natural products also reduce redness, calming and soothing the skin.

It’s Time You Take Control.

Get clear, beautiful skin.

So, it turns out, acne is actually a disease. Yep, just like any other health condition, acne is sometimes just something you’re born with in your genes (thanks a lot mom and dad!) You’re also not in the clear just because you’ve graduated high school – the acne disease affects teens and adults. Here’s what’s great about knowing this though, it means, you can take control of it. Just like any other health condition that you would go to the doctor and get medicine for, your acne can be helped in the same way. Being knowledgeable about your condition, watching how and when it gets better and worse and using products that combat the issues gives you the BEST defense against acne and the BEST path to clear, beautiful skin.

Guess what else we suggest you put in your arsenal? Seeking help! Seeing a professional who can look at your skin, see what your issues are and prescribe you the medicine you need is KEY to success. Don’t just peruse the drug store aisle hoping the next cleanser you pick out is the one that works. See someone who has studied skin and knows what will work, what won’t and what to not waste your time and money on.

beyond complexion was founded to help people suffering from deep-rooted skin issues. Our medical-grade products are developed to go below the surface of your skin so your outer appearance can match your inner glow.

Get Your Skin Glowing This Summer

Make sure you have your summer essentials.

Summer can do a number on your skin. We’ve all gotten a little too familiar with the sun at some point in our lives and lived to regret the burn and dry skin the next day. With the sun, the sweat, and the heat all making an impact, it’s incredibly important that you pay attention to your skin. The right skincare routine during the summer is essential to keep your skin hydrated, glowing and protected.

Protect Your Skin

SPF is always a must.

Before you bound out of the house for a walk, jog, stroll or just sipping a coffee at an outside café, make sure you first protect your skin with SPF. Lathering up with SPF doesn’t have to be like it was when you were a kid – we’re not suggesting bright orange zinc oxide! – but, making sure you’ve got a good layer of protection is still a must. Check out our light, yet powerfulSPFs that will keep your skin glowing AND protected all summer long.

Vitamin C+ Sheer Defense with SPF 30 
This lightweight sunscreen is loaded with potent antioxidants to fight free radicals, improve the appearance of aged, fragile skin, and discoloration. It creates a powerful shield to protect skin from UVA/UVB rays and renew skin’s moisture barrier, leaving your skin feeling silky-smooth. Ideal for all skin tones and types.

Why You Should Add Mandelic Acid to Your Routine

Powerful, yet gentle.  

Derived from almonds, Mandelic acid is a powerful, yet gentle acid that goes to battle with the oil, acne, and bacteria that disrupts the skin’s natural glow. Mandelic acid also provides a slight exfoliation, dislodging dead skin cells to loosen clogged pores and penetrating the skin to boost cell regeneration and skin elasticity. What does all of this mean? If you struggle with blemishes, oily skin, dark spots, fine lines, acne or aging skin (so pretty much everyone!), then Mandelic acid is a must in your skincare routine.

Learn Which Cleanser is Best for Your Skin Type

It starts with a clean face.

To get your skin looking its best, you have to start at the beginning…and that means cleansing. Cleansing your face is step one to clear, beautiful skin, and what you use to cleanse your skin makes a big impact on the results. Not all cleansers are created equal though, and not all cleansers are for every skin type. We’re breaking down our cleansers so you know which is best for you.

 

All-New Green Tea & Pomegranate Antioxidant Cleanser 
Meet our all-new cleanser! A powerful blend of antioxidants in a soothing cleanser designed to calm the skin and reclaim a youthful glow. The perfect cleanser for those with sensitive skin – especially after a peel or laser treatment. This is also a great addition if you are dealing with rosacea, puffiness or environmental skin damage (aka sunburn!) It’s the perfect everyday cleanser to add to your routine.

 

 

 

 

BPO Cleanser10% BPO Cleanser + Scrub

When combined with exfoliating beads, you get a potent cleanser that penetrates pores quickly and more effectively than standard benzoyl peroxide products.

You’ve got questions. We’ve got answers.

The skin care questions you want answers to.

Working with patients and clients who deal with an array of issues from pre-teen breakouts to over-the-hill aging skin, we’ve heard almost every question out there about skin care.

Here are a few of the questions we get asked ALL the time and the answers to them…because we know you were wanting to ask them too! {By the way, keep coming back as we’ll be updating with new questions and answers all the time!}

 

Can ice really help your skin?

Yes! Ice is an all around team player when it comes to great looking skin. Ice can help with inflammatory acne flare-ups, blemishes and can even help in the rejuvenation of your skin. In fact, look no further than your freezer to help with puffy eyes, and to help products sink into your skin even faster.

Ice is an easy addition to your routine. Once you’ve cleansed your face (check out our awesome facewashes here), ice for fifteen minutes by moving and lifting the ice cube every five seconds all around the face. The ice prepares your skin to absorb your skin care products even faster – helping to produce more peeling and thus more rapid clearing. A little trick we love is making ice cubes out of chamomile tea – as both the ice and the chamomile help calm inflammation.

If you’ve had extractions that day, up the time to 30 minutes to help promote clearing and to heal the inflammation.

If you are in the middle of peeling treatments, then we suggest using a soft cloth dipped in cold water to create a cold compress to place on the face to help with overall inflammation.

What is the difference between beyond complexion’s BPO cleanser and other benzoyl peroxide products? 

The Benzoyl beyond complexion uses is micronized – which means it is broken into very fine particles. This allows us to have a higher concentration without the irritation. When combined with exfoliating beads, you get a potent cleanser that penetrates pores quickly and more effectively than standard benzoyl peroxide products. This irritation-free scrub will gently remove bacteria, dirt, and dead cells to clear acne, fast.

 

Does the order of how you apply skin care products matter?

Yes. You should always go from thinnest to thickest after cleansing.
So, toner, then serums, then gels and then lotions. Want an example of an exemplary skin care routine? Check out our 6 Steps to Glowing Skin and get your skin in shape!

 

Is it worth it to buy expensive eye cream?

Yes! The price of the very good ingredients is high and that will increase the price of the product. For example, our Intensive Eye Complex is made from effective and powerful anti-aging ingredients such as Swiss apple stem cells—a revolutionary skincare ingredient from the rare Swiss apple—offering unmatched anti-wrinkle power to smooth fine lines and wrinkles.

 

Should you change skin care routine when the temps drop? If yes, then what updates need to be made?

Absolutely. There is less humidity and the weather is dryer in the winter, so the skin becomes more sensitive. Plus, heaters dehydrate the skin (ugh). It is normal to have flare ups, peeling skin and other issues because of these changes.  If you are using beyond complexion’s Mandelic Acid 5+ re-texturizing Pads twice a day, make a change to once a day.  If you are using them once a day and they are still too drying, use them only three times a week. It is also very important to remember to always start the pads on the forehead, as it is the thickest and most stubborn skin on the face.  Ultimately, you need to keep your skin extra moisturized. We suggest using beyond complexion’s Daily Facial Moisturizer SPF 30 more than twice a day if necessary.
