Jojoba Wonders

11 January 2020
What's New

Could the secret to ultra-hydrated skin be found in nature’s more arid regions? The answer is, yes. Jojoba is a desert shrub and the extract from its nut is known for its rich moisturizing benefits.

Although it appears to be oil, jojoba is a liquid wax ester with a structure similar to the natural esters present in sebum, which is a natural protector produced by the body’s sebaceous glands. Sebum holds in skin’s moisturizing water, leading to healthier, more radiant skin and a more youthful appearance.

Antibacterial and Anti-inflammatory

Jojoba is naturally an antibacterial, antiviral, and anti-fungal substance and this makes it ideal for several skin conditions. It has also long been used as an anti-inflammatory for dry, itchy or sensitive skin. It moisturizes while providing the skin with a nutrient rich substance to soothe.

Antioxidant

It contains natural Vitamin E, a well-known antioxidant. This means it helps to prevent damage to the skin caused by free radicals such as pollution, while also boosting skin complexion by discouraging the oxidization of things like oil, which helps to prevent clogged pores and blemishes.

Helps balance out sebum & doesn’t clog your pores

The make up of jojoba is very similar to sebum, which is the natural oil produced by our bodies. As jojoba is similar to this naturally occurring substance, when applied, the skin believes it has produced enough oil which prevents to production of more oils on the skin. Hence helping to balance out sebum production and prevent clogged pores from excess oils on the skin. Jojoba for oily skin is a powerful ingredient that will work wonders.

Aids wound and scars healing

Its benefits don’t stop there, research shows the jojoba binds with your skin when damage has been caused on it, providing a protective coating while aiding the repair of these separated skin cells. Due to the rich vitamin E content of jojoba, in the same way it helps to heel wounds, it also helps to lighten dark patches of skin due to its skin repair qualities.

Reduces wrinkles

Jojoba works as an excellent moisturizer which helps to fade deep set wrinkles and fine lines. Research shows that jojoba  also increases the skin’s suppleness in the short-term and is somewhat long-lasting.

All in a scrub

In DÉCAAR we understand that the jojoba benefits for skin are too hard to resist, so we’ve created the Oxygen Scrub. This gel based exfoliator rejuvenates and boosts the skin to restore all of its functions. It cleans out the pores, resulting in radiant glowing and healthy looking skin.

The winter weather can seriously affect the health and appearance of your skin, not to mention the seasonal excess and the late nights. There are several simple procedures that can really transform your appearance quickly and extremely effectively. Read below as DÉCAAR shares the best facials to offer during the holidays that will have your skin glowing for those under-the-mistletoe moments!

Breath of Life treatment for all skin types

For those who are looking for that holiday sparkle, DÉCAAR offers the Breath of Life program. It is provided for any type of skin with signs of tiredness, and oxygen deficiency caused by unfavourable factors of the environment, stress, diet and chronic somatic diseases. This treatment helps deep cleanse, hydrate, and brighten the appearance of the skin to create the perfect canvas for holiday makeup!

Oxygen is essential to rejuvenate dull and ageing skin, fine lines and wrinkles, as well as to help clear acne. When your skin breathes, everything that one does thereafter in terms of skincare brings even more exceptional results, as oxygen opens the pores all the way down through the layers.

Protocol

Start with cleansing the skin with a DÉCAAR Cleanser according to skin type. After that restore the skin with PH Balancing Lotion.

Apply Oxygen Scrub and rub for 3-5 minutes. Thoroughly remove the scrub with watered sponges or a small towel.

Next, apply Oxygen Serum+ to the treated area. Follow with the Oxygen Massage Cream and perform extensive massage for 20 minutes.

Apply a thick layer of Oxygen Mask+ and rub the treated area with a membrane for optimum results, then leave it to rest for 15-20 minutes.

Finish with the Oxygen Serum +, Oxygen Gel, Oxygen Hydro 24hr and Oxygen Cream SPF30 for sun protection.

Algae Peeling Regimen for all skin types

For those who want a skin boost, they can indulge in express facials with natural ingredients like algae herbs and perfluorocarbon found in Algae Peeling Regimen. This treatment is the most advanced and effective treatment for the most common skin problems like; acne, blemished dry and oily skin, wrinkles and sagging skin, pigmentation, scars and enlarged pores. Because the DÉCAAR Algae peeling regimen works biologically, it is suitable even for the most sensitive skin.

Protocol

Cleanse with Purifying Cleansing Gel and massage the skin lightly with your fingertips. Within 2-3 minutes, wash off with watered sponges.

Apply Natural Exfoliation Scrub for Oily and Normal skin, or Oxygen Scrub for Sensitive and Dry skin, and massage for 3-5 minutes. (In case of sensitive skin do not massage) Wash off with watered sponges.

Follow with Phyto Lotion using cotton pads.  Then, apply a thin layer of Pro-Cleansing Gel Mask for 10 minutes and cleanse the skin with Phyto Lotion using cotton pads.

Protect your eyelids, eyebrows and any birthmarks with Oxygen Massage Cream.

Dissolve one Algae Peeling Powder sachet with 10-12ml of Natural Peeling Solution until the paste is uniform. Make sure you wear gloves and apply uniformly a thin layer of it to the face and any other areas you want to treat (hands, neck, breast, back). You want to make sure you do not treat the face, neck, décolleté and back in one treatment, not to over ballast the lymphatic system of the facial/neck that connect to the clavicle-arteries. If you want to treat more than one area, please wait 24 hours per area and use one sachet per area.

Within 5-10 minutes, depending on the damage degree and skin sensitivity, rub the preparation gently into skin. If the mixture gets dry on the skin while scrubbing, wet your skin with your fingertips.

In case of a very thick skin leave the preparation on the skin for 10-15 minutes. In case of a very sensitive skin apply the algae peeling like a mask and leave it for 5 minutes without massaging the peeling. To remove, use watered cotton pads.

After that, clean and restore the skin with PH Balancing Lotion.  Apply the Calming Mask and leave it for 10-15 minutes.

Wash off with watered cotton pads and restore again with the PH Balancing Lotion. Finish with the Oxygen Gel and Oxygen Cream SPF 30.

Deep skin penetration by DÉCAAR

20 November 2019
What's New

Serums are essential supplements for your skin, as they have been proven to make a noticeable difference to how the skin looks and feels. With their lightweight texture and smaller molecular structure – much smaller than those found in oils, moisturizers and lotions – they can deeply penetrate the skin. This allows them to deposit powerful active ingredients like peptides, antioxidant rich vitamins or glycolic acids in the deeper layers of skin for more targeted results. So, it is no wonder serums are considered to be a vital step in correcting a variety of different skin issues.

Even though serums can be chock full of moisturizing ingredients, like hyaluronic acid and ceramides, which help skin retain moisture, they can’t replace a moisturizer. Face lotions and creams are richer and create a barrier on top of the skin to keep all that good stuff in. Following with a moisturizer is an important step after using a serum. Since the key purpose of a serum is to deliver active ingredients deep within the skin, most are not formulated to also provide intense hydration.

DÉCAAR offers four unique formulas with powerful concentrations, perfect for targeting specific skin concerns, whether they may be fine lines, fatigue or large pores.

Oxygen Serum

This highly active serum rejuvenates the skin and has a perfect application for damaged skin or skin with eczema. The skins immune system is enhanced, fine lines are smoothened, and the skin takes on a brighter look.

Delicate Serum

Silky and smooth, this serum is highly concentrated, providing an immediate calming effect, reducing skin redness, itching and inflammation while boosting moisture levels and reinforcing skin’s natural barrier. It intensively smoothes and hydrates sensitive skin, irritated or weakened by external factors such as stress and pollution.

Brightening Exfoliating Serum

An innovative formula that prevents face from reddening, resulting in an even skin tone effect. Through its gentle exfoliating activity and strong antioxidant properties, it refreshes and brightens the skin. The tendency of gluconolactone and lactobionic acid to bind water molecules, also results in increased hydration of the skin and reduces its roughness.

Elixir Serum

Last but not least, the strongly condensed DÉCAAR serum which with its firming and lifting properties, eliminates mimic and static wrinkles. Using a new generation of ingredients, the elixir serum provides the immediate effect of skin illumination. It restores health to wrinkled skin caused by sun damage, stimulates collagen production, and it moisturizes and protects the skin against water loss and harmful external factors.

 

Argan: The gold of the desert

22 October 2019
What's New

A 3,500-year-old beauty secret is revealed, giving us the most precious and desirable ingredient in cosmetics.

Sourced from the kernels of argan trees (Argania Spinosa L.) in Morocco, argan oil is an extremely versatile ingredient. Commonly used in food and cosmetics, argan oil is quickly gaining ground worldwide as a skin care staple. At once nourishing, moisturizing, and soothing, argan oil is gentle enough for all skin types while providing some serious anti-aging benefits.

In this installment of our Ingredient Spotlight series, we’ll dive into the argan oil benefits in skin care and what makes it so nourishing.

Great Moisturizer

Argan oil is naturally very moisturizing and non-clogging. This means that it can provide your skin with the moisture it needs without clogging your pores with unnecessary amounts of oil. Argan oil very closely resembles the oil your skin naturally produces. Therefore, your skin will accept and absorb it best.

For All Skin Types

Whether you have oily skin, dry skin, or a combination of both, argan is the oil for you. Most facial cleansers and moisturizers are too harsh for skin and ultimately strip your face of its natural sebum, forcing skin to overproduce oil to compensate for the loss. By applying argan oil to the skin, you are balancing your natural oil production levels.

Excellent Remedy for Acne

Argan oil is an excellent remedy for acne breakouts. It’s high in linoleic acid content, making it perfect for reducing inflammation and redness when healing acne. What is linoleic acid you ask? Linoleic acid is a polyunsaturated fatty acid that is part of the omega 6 fatty acids. This means that linoleic acid helps keep your hair and skin moisturized.

Great for Anti-Aging

Argan is packed with fatty acids and antioxidants, which makes it an excellent product to promote elasticity in your skin. This oil also naturally carries Vitamin E and A, which contribute to the anti-aging process. When used regularly, argan can help reduce the production and depth of wrinkles, while also fading age spots and reinforcing the regenerative properties of healthy skin cells.

Skin Healing Properties

Due to its rich natural formula, argan is deeply moisturizing and restorative to your skin and face. It can help reduce inflammation and heal wounds, creating a preventative remedy for scarring. Both women and men can benefit from argan’s ability to nourish and heal the skin. It can heal and moisturize a dry scalp, soften a scruffy beard, and double as a soothing post-shave product.

DÉCAAR’s golden formulas

The nature’s liquid gold is one of the active ingredients of DÉCAAR Oxygen Mask and Lift Firming Eye Cream.

The Oxygen Mask calms, hydrates and restores all skin functions by increasing the oxygen level of the cells. The skin metabolism is optimised and leaves the skin with a healthy glow. Fine lines are softened and the skin looks more healthy, tight and radiant.

The Lift Firming Eye Cream is a rich and innovative eye cream that actively counteracts fine lines, smoothes wrinkles and improves skin tone, giving the skin around the eye area a rested appearance. Fine lines and puffiness are reduced and the skin is moisturised and restored.

 

 

 

Neck & Décolleté Regeneration by DÉCAAR

8 October 2019
What's New

We tend to focus on our faces because we look at them every day in the mirror and necks are just one of those places that are easily forgotten about until they become a problem. However, you can always tell the true age of someone by their neck, décolleté and hands, which are susceptible to showing signs of ageing before the face.

The delicate skin on the neck and décolleté

Skin here is finer and more delicate as there are fewer sebaceous glands to keep it moisturised and yet it’s as exposed to environmental damage as the face. It also has a less protective hydrolipidic film, and a thinner dermis and epidermis, so it’s more vulnerable to lines and loss of firmness.

On top of fine skin and lack of moisture and protection, fat drops towards the base of the face as we age, turning a once defined jawline into a double chin – not helped by constantly looking down at tablets, mobiles and laptops. So even if you’re young, tech-neck, as it’s known as, can still be an issue.

And the final insult is the menopause, when hormones go awry. Oestrogen drops off, the hormone responsible for (amongst other things) collagen production, and so skin loses density and firmness, which results in skin slackening, creping, sagging, fine lines and wrinkles.

Protecting it with DÉCAAR

The good news is that there are ways to both prevent and treat existing signs of aging on the area that require minimal effort. DÉCAAR blends a range of nature’s finest skin savers – like gold, abyssinian oil and buriti oil – with scientific expertise to create skincare that delivers real results. With its unique formula, DÉCAAR Neck & Décolleté Lifting Cream, reduces wrinkles and restores silky smoothness, firmness and hydration to the neck and décolletage. It wonderfully regenerates and restores sun-damaged skin and gives back its elasticity and structure.

Gold

One of the many benefits of Gold when applying it to the skin, is that it boosts blood flow to the area being treated, and this speeds cellular process and activates regeneration. An increase in blood circulation also helps hydrate and maintain the skin’s moisture level, leads to reduction in acne and other skin ailments. Gold provides glowing skin, restores elasticity, slows down collagen depletion and the breakdown of elastin to prevent sagging skin. It also stimulates cellular growth to regenerate healthy, firm skin cells and provide a tightening effect. It has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, as well as recreating broken cellular connections, which translates into fine lines and wrinkles being diminished with its use.

Abyssinian oil

Abyssinian Oil is a natural seed oil with an ultra light, non-greasy skin feel, and has a unique molecular structure not found in any other naturally occurring substance. It is an excellent moisturizing property which help promote skin suppleness, softness and wrinkle reduction. It contains an abundance of both Linoleic and Linolenic Acids. Linoleic Acid, an Omega 6 fatty acid, is helpful with skin regeneration, while Linolenic Acid, an Omega 3, is anti-inflammatory, cell-communicating and skin conditioning.

Buriti oil

According to research conducted in various labs throughout South America, buriti oil is antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and photo-protective. The antioxidant activity of buriti oil protects the lipid membranes that surround all skin cells, keeping cells healthy longer. The anti-inflammatory activity of the oil is beneficial in cases of rough or sensitive skin, redness, rashes, and irritation. And the photo-protective properties of the oil help skin cells to better withstand the potentially damaging UVA and UVB rays of the sun. This last activity makes buriti oil suitable for use in sun-protection products. The discovery of the sun-protective properties of buriti was learned from native people, who sometimes finely grind the fruit and smear a paste of it onto their skin if they are going to be in direct sunlight for long periods.

 

Acne: causes and treatments

24 September 2019
What's New

Acne is a skin condition characterized by red pimples, whiteheads or blackheads due to inflamed or infected sebaceous glands that is present mostly on the face. It isn’t just a teen skincare issue. In fact, dermatologists are seeing more adult acne cases today than in previous decades. Some adults develop acne for the first time in their 20s, 30s or beyond and others also had it as a teen. Either way, acne can be frustrating.

What causes acne?

Acne may be non-inflammatory or inflammatory. Subtypes of acne within these two categories include whiteheads, blackheads, papules, nodules, pustules and cysts. For the most part, the same factors that cause acne in adolescents are at play in adult acne. The four factors that directly contribute to acne are: excess oil production, pores becoming clogged by “sticky” skin cells, bacteria, and inflammation. There are also some indirect factors that influence the aforementioned direct factors, including:

  • hormones, stress, and the menstrual cycle in women, all of which can influence oil production
  • hair products, skin care products, and makeup, which can clog pores
  • diet, which can influence inflammation throughout the body.

Some medications, including corticosteroids, anabolic steroids, and lithium, can also cause acne.

DÉCAAR provides the most advanced acne treatments

The basis of DÉCAAR methodology is listening and observing to make a relevant skin diagnosis and effectively recommend the most appropriate care. Our skin professionals propose to each one a customized cabin care program in order to prolong at home the benefits of the care cabin. Our face skin care protocols have been classified into different categories to allow the beauty professional to offer the most appropriate care for each customer, cell repair and regeneration. It performs deep skin hydration and changes skin profile and depth of wrinkles. The skin’s immune system is significantly improved, and the cells are energised. We use a different cabin care healing protocol and treat acne at a different stage.

Algae Peeling Regimen

Algae Peeling Regimen protocol is used for 1st stage acne. This stage is diagnosed because of excessive skin oiliness and the keratinization of the sebaceous follicles, blocked pores and the appearance of comedones, papules and pustules. The biological Algae peeling contains ingredients like algae, perfluorocarbon, herbs and organic compounds with a high capacity for transporting Oxygen in solution. Its micro-fibres penetrate the skin causing an increased blood flow and production of new cells. The result of this action is to balance the function of sebaceous follicles, reduce oiliness, increase microcirculation and improve the immune capacity. The skin become softer, cleaner, the pores are cleaned deeply, and regenerated.

Deep Phyto Peeling

For more severe acne (2nd and 3rd stage), with contaminated papules and pustules, nodules and small cyst, Deep Phyto Peeling protocol is recommended. This protocol includes DÉCAAR Deep Phyto Complex as it can quickly penetrate the surface of the skin, boost collagen, correct even extensive sun damage, soften wrinkles and clear acne-scarred skin. The peeling reduces cutaneous inflammation, hyperkeratosis and balances the lipid moisturizing and gives a skin film protection.

 

It is advised to use DÉCAAR home care products to optimize treatment outcome, as more than 70% improved results have been noticed when the treated person combines the treatment with DÉCAAR homecare products.
