Why You Should Add Some Charcoal to Your Skincare

Simply put, activated charcoal acts as a mega sponge for impurities and toxins including bacteria… chemicals… dirt… and poisons. It leaves your skin detoxed and refreshed.

In fact, activated charcoal powder can hold 1,000 times it’s weight in toxins. It’s no wonder charcoal has made its way into skincare products, especially masks.

All skin types can benefit from charcoal for a good detox, particularly those with oily skin to really absorb and detox all that extra oil and sebum. Normal skin types can certainly benefit as well, but shouldn’t overuse.

Here are two of our charcoal products in our MUAC line that you won’t want to miss:

Provide Your Skin with A Good Detoxing
Our MUAC Glow Mask is just the product to detox and decongest your pores. Great for ANY SKIN TYPE. The thermal charcoal formula within this mask activates with water to create a warming sensation, while helping to melt away debris.

The Best Face Mask for My Very Sensitive Skin
The mask effectively does what it is designed for: it unclogs the pores, without irritating the skin. I could see my face looking healthier and “glow” right from the first application of the mask. I also love the warming sensation of the activated thermal charcoal on my face. Thank you dear MUAC team for this very good product – Anissa from Mauritius
Keep Oil and Sebum at Bay
Our MUAC Blemish Busters Cleanser uses activated charcoal, along with Tea Tree oil and other fabulous ingredients, to absorb excess oil and sebum. Use it two – three times a week rotating with a gentle cleanser to maintain your skin’s natural hydration. You won’t want to over dry your skin even if it’s “oily”, as too much drying can produce more oil. A great cleanser to use in between our Blemish Busters is our Wild Oat and Honey Cleanser.  Those with oily and acneac skin should absolutely order their sample bottle asap if they haven’t tried it already.

WOW!!
I am an African-American woman with a chocolate brown complexion and combination skin. I have to say that I am so thankful that I found this website. I have been using the blemish buster cleanser and toner for the past few weeks and I have to say that my breakouts have been kept at a minimum especially in my t-zone area. This product leaves my skin feeling clean without feeling too dry. I will definitely be continuing to use this product. – Megan W from Washington DC

BellEvolve Vitamin C 20% Professional Serum

Our BellEvolve Vitamin C 20% Professional Serum is a *potent* anti aging product. This advanced formulation contains L-ascorbic acid enhanced with Vitamin E, Hyaluronic and Phytic acids. Phytic acid, derived from natural plants, is an antioxidant that helps to block new formation of melanin.

Benefits:

–Stimulate collagen synthesis
–Fades age spots
–Reduces acne and acne scars
–Defends skin against free radicals and environment damage
–Minimizes fine lines and wrinkles
–Reduces general skin discolorations
–Excellent for sun damaged skin
–This product should be a staple in your anti aging regime.

Concentration:

Maximum tissue levels are obtained at 20% L-ascorbic acid. Any amount higher or lower than 20% is not an optimal concentration. You will see some companies market their serums at 20%, however they may be using other acid combinations to achieve this level. The L-ascorbic acid in our serum is exactly 20%. Additional ingredients are enhancements to maximize effectiveness and stability.

This product does *not* need to be refrigerated. Store in a cool, dry place and away from light.

pH: Many Vitamin C preparations are not pH adjusted for optimal biologic activity and penetration. The optimal pH of an L-ascorbic acid formula is between 2.5 – 3.0. Anything higher than pH 3 can reduce the ability to penetrate efficiently and lose overall effectiveness of the vitamin. Anything lower than pH 2.5 can cause irritations and very dry skin.

Compare to Cellex C, Skinceuticals and CRX.

Sun Damaged Skin

The Sunshine Vitamin D Dilemma: How to find your fill without risk

It’s no secret that the sun is the #1 cause of photo aging to the skin… but it’s also the bodies’ best source of Vitamin D. Most of us know that. But what may not be known is how much you need from the sun… while still protecting your health… to get your dose of the big “D” – the mega vitamin responsible for strong bones, a mighty immune system, cancer prevention, heart health, and mental soundness.  It’s not a vitamin you want to lack.

Deficiencies in the vitamin lead to ugly side effects and health issues. Think about winter – when the darkness sets early and the dreaded side effects follow: sluggishness… low mood… lethargy.  Even depression and “seasonal affective disorder” are linked to low D levels.

That’s why summertime is so important for filling up on the critical vitamin.  BUT what level of sun exposure is considered dangerous now a days? Here are some answers to questions you may be asking:

  • How much time is safe in the sun before I’m at risk for sun damage? There’s a period of time for safe sun exposure – enough to fill your “D” tank before damage begins.  US News Health Reports, if you’re fair skinned, experts say going outside for 10 minutes in the midday sun—in shorts and a tank top with no sunscreen—will give you enough radiation to produce about 10,000 international units of the vitamin. 

    Those of a tanner origin need about 15-20 minutes to absorb the same amount… and those with extremely dark skin can probably go beyond 30 minutes without sun damage. One you’ve reached your limit, Dr. Mercola recommends: The rest of the day, you can spend in the shade, wear clothes, and, if you still want to be in the open sun, use a non-toxic lotion with SPF15 for uncovered skin. Just be sure to be on the safe side of burning! 

  • What if I already have on sunscreen? Will I still be able to absorb any vitamin D? YES. You can wear sunscreen and STILL benefit. A recent study conducted in London concludes that subjects wearing SPF 15 versus sunscreen-free subject absorbed plenty of Vitamin D – although not as much as the non-sunscreen group. HOWEVER, researchers still don’t know if a higher level of SPF would inhibit the vitamin more so.

A Product that Fits the Bill… MUAC offers an outstanding product to fight the detrimental effects of UV radiation in human skin, protecting and *repairing* DNA, thus preventing premature photo-aging: Our Anti Aging Day Protect with Preventhalia.  It provides the skin with a complete system of protection from intrinsic and extrinsic aging.  And, that… quite simply… is remarkable. Simply click here to review it for yourself.

IMPORTANT TO NOTE: Those of you using anything chemical, i.e., chemical peels, retinoids, or any acids are required to wear an SPF of 30 on your face or body where you’re using the products to protect from sun burning. These ingredients create ultra-sensitivity to sunlight within the areas used. The FDA requires sunscreen usage of at least an SPF 30 with these products.

As always we appreciate your readership and business. At MUAC, we strive to be your #1 source for skin health and beauty.

40% Mandelic Acid Peel

This NEW Peel Packs a Results-Punch!

NEW: 40% Mandelic Acid Peel

For those of you who’ve needed a stronger line of mandelic acid attack, we’ve got you covered. Our new 40% Mandelic Acid Peel packs a punch… so it’s NOT FOR BEGINNERS.

Mandelic Acid penetrates skin slower than other alpha hydroxides, due to a larger molecular structure… meaning a less irritating experience. Derived from bitter almonds, Mandelic acid goes to work doing the following:

–Loosens blackheads…
–Rapidly exfoliates the skin…
–Deeply cleanses and decongests pores…
–Brings antimicrobial and antibacterial properties…
–Super effective for acne sufferers…
–Inhibits the growth of melanin, meaning discoloration reappears more slowly…
–Reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles…
and can reverse sun damage upon continued use.

Additionally, those with darker skin tones don’t have to worry about this acid bleaching their natural skin tones, as other AHA’s might.

NOTE:
Only those who’ve successfully used our 25% Mandelic Acid Peel for 6-8 weeks should consider using the 40% Mandelic Acid. A beginner “peeler” must always start at the lowest strength and work up the chain slowly. We take this matter quite seriously, so always read our instructions within your peel packet.

.50 Retinol Lotion – Our Strongest Retinol Product

Our Most Powerful Strength… Yet Gentle Enough for 80 Year Olds!

A research study at the University of Michigan tested retinol lotions on 36 elderly, healthy people… most around the age of 80. After six months of applying retinol lotion on a small area on their upper arms, results showed considerable decrease in fine lines and wrinkles. However, even more interesting is how quickly effects decreased upon discontinuing use of the lotions.

Now consider the skin of the elderly for a minute…
It’s thinner. Looser. Usually dryer. If these retinol lotions can effect and improve the skin of 80 year olds, imagine what it can do for younger skin…

Mind you, our .50 retinol lotion is an advanced strength and only for those who have worked up to that level. Any “retinol rookies” need to begin with a .10% strength to ensure skin safety and minimal irritation.
