Our hearts have been heavy for all those affected by Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria. While the end of the 2017 hurricane season is nearing, we know recovery efforts in the path of their destruction will continue to go on for months.

At Earth Science, we try to fuse social and environmental responsibility into the core of our business. In considering how we could help hurricane victims as they begin to rebuild their lives, we decided to partner with Good360, a global leader in product philanthropy and purposeful giving. Good360 works with recovery agencies and nonprofits to determine exactly what families and individuals need and then provides them with products donated by companies. They’re helping us deliver $100,000 worth of basic essential hygiene items—shampoo and conditioner—to the people of southern Florida in the wake of Hurricane Irma!

If you’re an animal lover, another great organization to have on your radar is Best Friends Animal Society. We’ve also committed to support our friends at this nonprofit in their disaster response efforts, which have been phenomenal! Their work in Texas and Florida has included rescuing stranded animals, helping reunite families with lost pets, delivering supplies to hard-hit animal shelters, and transporting displaced shelter pets. In Texas alone, they’ve already helped more than 1,600 animals in the Houston area and served more than 10,000 pounds of food to hungry pets.

Our thoughts remain with the communities impacted by these disasters. We invite you to join us in our commitment to helping them as they recover and rebuild.

Skincare Decoded

With so many skincare products on the market, it’s often difficult to know when and how to use them for maximum benefits. Figuring out whether serums go under or over your moisturizer doesn’t need to be complicated. We put together a step-by-step guide for normal to dry skin types that includes some of our favorite products.

Step 1 – Makeup Remover: Start by removing any makeup with a mild, non-irritating makeup removing solution and a cotton round. Our Chamomile & Green Tea Eye Makeup Remover gently dissolves stubborn mascara without tugging at delicate skin or leaving any residue behind.

Step 2 – Cleanser: Next, dampen face and gently massage a cleanser onto skin with clean hands or a washcloth. For a decadent and silky cleansing experience, try our Active Age Defense Whipped Cream Cleanser made with kukui and macadamia nut oils to create a luxurious velvety lather. Massage in a circular motion and rinse with warm water.

Step 3 – Toner: (Toning is an optional step, but beneficial and is often overlooked.) After patting skin dry, saturate a cotton round with an alcohol-free toner, like our Aloe Vera Complexion Toner & Freshener, to normalize your skin to its natural balance. Gently glide toner over face and neck. It prepares the skin to be more receptive to new sources of moisture and minimizes pores.

Step 4 – Serum: Once toning is complete, a small amount of serum can be dropped onto a fingertip to smooth gently into skin. Face, neck, and specific areas that need extra plumping and hydrating benefit from our Active Age Defense Maximum Hydration Hyaluronic Acid Serum by reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, making skin feel fresher, firmer, and more youthful-looking with each use.

Step 5 – Eye Cream: After serum has been applied, you’re ready for your moisturizers. Start with a gentle but effective eye cream, like the Active Age Defense i-cream, suitable for use under makeup. Our i-cream adds radiance to tired eyes, softens the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as reducing puffiness and dark circles.

Step 6 – Daytime Moisturizer & Sun Protection: A moisturizer with SPF is highly recommended to defend against harmful UVA and UVB rays daily. The Active Age Defense Protective Day Cream with natural minerals provides spf 30 protection with just a little amount of product.

Step 7 – Nighttime Moisturizer: Add long-lasting hydration to promote luminous tone and texture. At night, an overnight formula like our Active Age Defense Fruit Actives Perfecting Lotion works hard exfoliating  and rejuvenating for that fresh morning glow.

Extra Steps: A skin masque, like our Papaya-Glycolic Radiant Skin Masque, can be used once a week to gently loosen dull skin cells, clear pores, and polish away impurities. Additionally, an exfoliator, like our Apricot Gentle Facial Scrub, can promote the development of new skin cells and leave skin soft and smooth when used one to two times a week.

Although these are our recommendations, it is important to remember that each person has different needs that may require a slight variation. Experimenting with different products and steps can help develop your perfect skincare routine.  Contact us for recommendations.

We here at Earth Science Naturals love our products! We are always talking about them, writing about them and gathering feedback from our customers and colleagues. We can say a lot of fantastic things about our favorites, but thought we would share the love by featuring a couple of our favorite blog mentions:

Our Olive & Avocado Deep Conditioning Hair Masque is one of our most popular products – it’s always on our top sellers list and when we’re out visiting stores, customers comment to us how they can’t get enough masque. Amber shared her experience and we couldn’t be happier: “I tried the Earth Science Olive & Avocado Hair Masque and my hair felt instantly smoother and healthier… When I got up in the morning my hair was smoother and shinier than it has been in years.”

Cori over at Well Beauty Blog wrote a descriptive and detailed review of one of our younger products, our Multi-Therapy Ceramide Healthy Skin Lotion. She concluded her post with an awesome recap of this effective product: “Overall, Earth Science’s Multi-Therapy Ceramide Health Skin Lotion is awesome. It’s light but moisturizing. Since it’s fragrance free and full of vitamins and anti-inflammatories, it’s great for my sensitive skin. And, since it sinks in so fast I can use it anytime and even in the hot summer.” We’re glad to hear it, Cori!

Our Cellagen Renewal Serum is designed to smooth and firm skin, and it sounds like it’s doing it’s job according to Kim: “You see it says on the box that you just need to place a few drops on fingertips and smooth into wrinkled areas or anywhere you need to “plump skin”What I didn’t expect was it to really work…I guess I am a bit jaded at times when it comes to skin care. Well guess what? It really did work! And yeah you bet I am still using it too!! I am over 50 so anything to help me not look 50 I’m game!”
