Romance is in the air… Yep, that’s right: Valentine’s Day is just around the corner!

Your plans might entail a special night out with a loved one or friend – or they could include a nice, quiet night in, allowing for an at-home facial.  Regardless of your plans, this time of year tends to remind us of some of the perfect partners in life – like macaroni and cheese, peanut butter and jelly, and even music and dancing. Sometimes two things just go better together – and here at MyChelle, we have found that our line of skin care products contains several of these “perfect partners”! Here are a few power-packed combos that can work wonders on your skin:

Luxury Spa Partners

luxuryspapartnersWho knew that hidden in the MyChelle line was a pair of products that would leave your skin looking like you just had an expensive facial? For a healthy, hydrated complexion, incorporate the Tropical Skin Smoother and Hydrating Cactus Mask into your weekly routine. The Tropical Skin Smoother is a delicious scrub designed to exfoliate and re-texturize for a youthfully soft and vibrant complexion. Ultra-fine Bamboo Stem Powder and 1.6% Lactic Acid release and dissolve dead cell build-up to give dry skin a brighter appearance. Rich in vitamins and minerals, exfoliation also helps ingredients to more deeply penetrate the skin.

Apply the Hydrating Cactus after exfoliating. This mask luxuriously softens, soothes and maintains hydrating moisture. Skin-protecting and antioxidant-rich Prickly Pear Cactus combines with soothing Blue Agave to ease discomfort and signs of redness – while also deeply hydrating and preventing moisture loss. Protection is further enhanced with Smithsonite and Malachite Stone Extracts to shield against environmental stress and pollution.

Powerhouse Partners

Wrinkles are an inevitable part of the aging processes.  As we get older, fine lines and wrinkles start to form powerhousepartnerson the skin and the battle for a youthful appearance begins. As Mark Twain once said, “Wrinkles should merely indicate where smiles have been.” This is true – but we all get wrinkles, and they appear on the skin for a whole host of reasons (UV damage, genetics, lifestyle choices, etc.)

For a long-term solution that will diminish and prevent wrinkles, try using the NoTox™ Anti-Wrinkle Serum, which contains powerful antioxidants and a unique multi-peptide blend of over 7 different peptides working to improve skin texture while at the same time reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Matrixyl® synthe’6™ reduces wrinkle volume by 21% and wrinkle depth by 19% in just 8 weeks. Thymulen® 4 stimulates epidermis regeneration, reflecting a youthful appearance. Syn®-Tacks Peptide stimulates collagen formation and minimizes wrinkle depth. This nutrient-dense serum will help prevent glycation within the skin as well as repair and rebuild the skin’s structural integrity.

After applying the serum, moisturize your skin with the Supreme Polypeptide Cream. This nutrient-rich cream lifts and firms the skin for a more refined, youthful appearance. Our highly concentrated peptide cream contains Matrixyl® – but we also added Proteasyl® TP Pea Peptide because it is clinically proven to improve skin’s elasticity, increasing overall firmness by 35% in just 6 weeks. And we didn’t stop there; we also added Rice Peptides to  improve skin smoothness – while Syn®-Coll Peptide triggers skin’s own reparative function to accelerate collagen production. This power-packed nourishing cream is excellent for anyone at any age! Use the NoTox™ Anti-Wrinkle Serum in combination with the Supreme Polypeptide Cream, and be amazed as the wrinkles and fine lines dissipate and your skin looks visibly younger and firmer.

Serious Partners

seriouspartnersTalk about a duo designed to repair, protect, hydrate and firm! Apply the Perfect C Serum in the morning and use our Serious Hyaluronic Firming Serum at night to create a healthy, vibrant appearance in two easy steps. The Perfect C Serum really is perfect; it can help minimize breakouts, brighten the skin, diminish hyperpigmentation, and even strengthen sensitive skin while also improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This amazing product truly does it all! A 17% dose of clinically correct, clinically proven L-Ascorbic Acid helps to strengthen collagen and improve skin texture. L-Ergothioneine boosts cellular energy and helps interrupt the stress reaction that destroys elastin, while Buddleja Plant Stem Cell protects against photo-damage and oxidative stress through antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activity. Use every morning to keep your complexion healthy and balanced.

Also incorporate the MyChelle Serious Hyaluronic Firming Serum into your evening routine to enhance hydration and overall firmness. Cell-renewing Copper Mineral has been shown to tighten skin, improve elasticity, and stimulate collagen synthesis. Proline, an amino acid, improves moisture retention and aids tissue repair. Superoxide Dismutase inhibits the free radical reaction that causes cell damage. Hyaluronic Acid replenishes skin’s moisture reserves. Your skin will look healthy and radiant with this pair!

Gentle Exfoliating Partners

gentleexfoliatingpartnersWant to get a deep cleanse and gentle exfoliation without much hassle? Mix 1 pea-sized amount of the Fruit Enzyme Scrub into 1 dime-sized amount of the Fruit Enzyme Cleanser for 2-in-1 deep cleansing treat. Our gentle Fruit Enzyme Cleanser uncovers remarkably fresh, smooth skin. A special blend of natural multi-fruit Alpha- Hydroxy Acids unclogs and purifies pores, and also increases cellular turnover for a more youthfully refined look. Strengthening antioxidant Turmeric keeps skin calm and eases signs of irritation, while Fructooligosaccharides (from sugar) promote and protect skin’s health. The Fruit Enzyme Scrub contains dual skin polishers and dissolving enzymes that quickly exfoliate dead skin cell build-up and unwanted debris in pores. Super-smooth Jojoba Beads and refined Bamboo Stem Powder gently polish the skin without irritating or tearing the surface. Fruit Enzymes dissolve dulling residue for ultra-smooth, ultra-soft skin. You can use separately or mix together; either way these partners revive the skin!
