Advantage of Baking Soda Toothpaste

SLS Free Toothpaste for Healthy smile
Everyone wants to have whiter teeth free of cavities, stains and problems. Baking soda toothpaste has had a long history since the early 1900s for brushing the teeth.  It used to be used by itself. Many brands of toothpaste market baking soda toothpaste today as an ingredient in the paste.  What are the benefits of using toothpaste with baking soda? 

Pros of Brushing with Toothpaste with Baking Soda
  • According to studies, brushing teeth with baking soda toothpaste is more effective than toothpaste without baking soda.
  • Removes stains for whiter, brighter teeth
  • Helps fight bad mouth odor and freshens breath  
  • Helps remove plaque effectively
Cons of Brushing with Baking Soda Toothpaste
  • It may be too abrasive
  • It's not meant to reduce tooth decay
  • May not taste good in toothpaste
  • May be too abrasive if used by itself or in higher concentrations in toothpaste
Cleure Baking Soda Toothpaste cleans without being too abrasive.  University tested and proven with just the right percentage of baking soda, it helps remove stains for whiter, brighter teeth.  Added benefits of xylitol help with dry mouth, gum disease and tooth decay.

Best Gentle Exfoliator for Sensitive Skin

Sensitive Skin Scrub and Mask
If you've had a facial at a spa, you know it's pure luxury.  The pampering is wonderful and relaxing, but there are drawbacks.  Not only can the spa facial cost hundreds of dollars, but if you have sensitive skin, the herbal 'natural' skin care products they usually use, can leave your skin irritated.  There is a safer, more affordable way to have silky smooth skin and make it a weekly event, right at your own home.  All you need is the best gentle exfoliator and a facial mask for sensitive skin.

Exfoliating Scrub to Unclog Pores
Dirt, makeup and oil that remains on your skin will clog pores and make your skin dull and unhealthy looking.  Your skin evolves as you age.  At birth your skin generates new skin cells every few days as old cells die.  As we get older, instead of a few days for the old cells to die, it may take up to a month or longer.

When these dead cells are not removed regularly, they bind together and regular soap or cleanser is not enough to remove them.  As they build up, the new skin cells can't reach the top layer of the skin.  You may end up with:
  • Dull looking skin
  • Uneven skin color
  • Blemishes and acne, and other skin problems
  • Large pores with dry to oily patches, or even rashes
How a facial Exfoliator Works
Facial Mask for Sensitive Skin

Exfoliation is the process of removing your skin's dead cells.  Some scrubs used, even at high end spas, may leave your skin red and irritated, or stinging. Even with the most gentle exfoliating scrub, it's best to not over do it, but use it as needed by following the product's instructions.  Typically, you'll see benefits with regular once a week use of an exfoliator.  A facial mask can also be applied weekly.

The best exfoliating scrub and facial mask can have the following benefits:
  • Improve circulation
  • Help detoxify your skin
  • Even skin tone by reducing production of sebum, the main cause of oily skin
  • Reduce acne, rashes, skin problems
  • Clear skin with no visible signs of large pores

Cleure Exfoliating Scrub helps remove dead cells with fine grains of pumice.  These particles gently scrub away dead cells allowing new skin cells to rise to the top.  This leaves you with healthier, smoother, brighter skin.

Cleure Facial Mask helps clear your skin with dead sea mud and kaolin clay.  Dead sea mud is rich in minerals.  Studies report these minerals in dead sea mud have healing properties.  Kaolin clay helps soften your skin, improve elasticity, helps absorb oil, minimizes pores, wrinkles and fine lines.

Face Moisturizer for Sensitive Skin

Sensitive Skin Hydration
All of us should treat our skin as if we have sensitive skin.  With age, facial skin does become more delicate.  Delicate skin becomes easily irritated with little effort.  Face moisturizer for sensitive skin should work with your skin's natural properties and help restore it to optimum, youthful appearance and health.

The skin is made so as to naturally prevent it from drying out by keeping it hydrated.  Superficial glands, called sebaceous glands, secrete oil and help prevent evaporation of water from the skin.  The right face moisturizer for sensitive skin will be formulated with the proper ingredients to keep your skin hydrated by enhancing the function of these sebaceous glands.


Even sensitive skin comes in a variety of types and so do face moisturizers:
  •  Day time face creams are lighter to allow easy makeup application and help them to stay on longer.
  • The purpose of night cream is to be richer in oil content and contain skin rejuvenation ingredients, such as antioxidants.
  • There are also sunscreen moisturizers to help during sun exposure.
To improve hydration, the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) suggests to moisturize right after cleansing.  This allows the moisturizer to help trap water, encouraging and improving the moisture content of your skin.

Premature aging and wrinkles can be prevented by keeping your sensitive skin moisturized.  Stay away from harsh, irritating ingredients such as salicylic acid in moisturizers.  The best face moisturizer for sensitive skin helps protect your skin from sun and wind.

Face Moisturizer for Sensitive Skin
Cleure face moisturizers for sensitive skin include Day Cream and Night Cream.  Both include shea butter which gently does protect from sun and wind.  Daily care of your skin is a reward in itself, every time you look into the mirror.  Healthy, radiantly beautiful skin is possible with fragrance free, paraben free Cleure face moisturizers for sensitive skin.

Makeup Advise for Sensitive Skin

Sensitive Skin Cosmetics
Irritated skin is very common with sensitive skin.  If you apply makeup and your skin tends to burn, turn red and sting or break out in a rash, read on for TLC tips for problem free makeup to beauty perfection.

1.  Preparing your face before applying makeup is important.  Based on your skin type, use a gentle cleanser.  Cleure has three types of senstive skin cleansers to clean your face with.

Safe Sunscreen
2.  Follow cleansing by applying moisturizer.  Certain ingredients tend to worsen sensitive skin.  Use a fragrance free moisturizer.  Face creams with plant extracts, fragrance and salicylic acid can be very irritating to sensitive skin.  Many of these ingredients can either be too harsh for your skin and may not have anything to do with helping your skin become healthy.  Many are used only for marketing.

3.  During the day, when you'll be exposed to the sun, go for a sun block with zinc oxide and titanium dioxide.  These are the safest for all skin types and offer broad spectrum protection.

4.  Mineral makeup is the best and most gentle on sensitive skin.  Cleure has a complete line of mineral makeup including lipstick, foundation, bronzer and blush.  Cleure mineral makeup also has an SPF 15 - 25 to help protect your skin from harmful sun's radiation.

With loose mineral makeup, applying it lightly appears more natural.  Using proper, high quality brushes makes a big difference as well.  Kabuki is the brush choice for overall foundation.  Tap extra powder off the kabuki, until you can barely see any powder.  Apply in a circular motion.  Smaller brushes can be used for all other makeup.  For complete instructions read How to Apply Loose Mineral Makeup.

For oily skin, finish by dusting on Cleure Rice Powder.  It absorbs oil from your skin and leaves your skin looking smooth and flawless.

Sensitive Skin Anti Aging Products

Sensitive Skin Anti Aging Products
There are two age groups that should always use sensitive skin products: babies and those with aging skin.  Babies have very delicate skin, and harsh ingredients can cause irritation.  As we age, our skin also becomes more delicate and sensitive.  With aging can come dry, cracked and even itchy skin.  Most commercial anti aging skin products can make your skin worse, and even cause premature aging.

The best sensitive skin anti aging products should help the skin retain moisture.  This is important since less oil is produced with aging skin compared to youthful skin.  This reduced level of skin oils is what makes it drier and more sensitive. Added perfumes, dyes and harsh ingredients, natural or chemical, can cause further irritation and aging.

Anti Aging Cleanser
Always opt for a gentle cleanser that is free of sodium lauryl sulfate.  Your skin should not feel taught and dry after cleaning it, but soft and healthy.  Soap or cleansers formulated for aging skin are more gentle for sensitive skin types.  Cleure Gentle Cleanser is free of fragrance, dyes, sodium lauryl sulfate and is excellent for dry skin.

Best Anti Aging Cream for Sensitive skin
If you only purchase products to help remove wrinkles, you may be adding irritating ingredients to your skin.  Many anti wrinkle creams, lotions, moisturizers and toners may very well contain natural and chemical harsh ingredients that can damage your skin.  Anti oxidants are very useful and are healthy natural ingredients for aging skin.  Use a heavier moisturizing night cream at bedtime to help hydrate your skin.  For oily skin, there are anti aging oil free lotions available.  Cleure Night Cream is excellent as a natural heavier moisturizing cream.

Monthy Facial
You may want to give yourself a monthly deep hydrating, healing mask with kaolin clay to add vital nutrients to your skin.  Start with a gentle exfoliating scrub to remove dead skin cells and follow by applying a facial mask with dead sea mud and kaolin clay.
