What is the perfect solution to sun-damaged skin after summer fun? We’ve created a kit to correct hyperpigmentation and even skin tone, as it heals and protects the skin from further damage. Sun damage can break down collagen and elastin, so we replenish with a variety of anti-oxidant rich ingredients to aid healing. Nutrition is important to keep skin healthy from the inside out with the antioxidant summer fruit powerhouse; berries. Other foods rich in healing nutrients include kale, broccoli artichokes, spinach, artichokes and sweet potatoes. Remember to get enough sleep, because the repair process occurs primarily while we are sleeping.
Our kit for repair includes an Illuminating serum in the evening to work on hyperpigmentation, and an antioxidant serum in the daytime to protect and heal. The combination of these two-targeted serums evens out skin tone and repairs wrinkles and dry skin. We’ve formulated each serum to have the most benefit without side effects from some skin lightening products.
The Illuminating serum is used at night for repair and rejuvenation. This serum contains:
- Arbutin: natural lightening and brightening agent
- Salicylic Acid: breaks down and exfoliates dead skin cells
- Kojic Acid: helps to balance skin tones, fades dark spots and freckles
- Azelaic Acid: antibacterial, anti-acne agent
- Glycolic Acid: improves skin hydration, clears pores, promotes clarified skin tone, and lightens while boosting collagen synthesis
- Ferulic Acid and Peptide Stabilized Vitamin C: neutralize free radicals and help prevent UV light damage to cells
To use simply apply to the face after cleansing with our gentle cleanser and a spritz of Hydrating Toner.
The Antioxidant serum is used during the day to protect and heal.
Antioxidant serum serves up a high potency multi-C and Ferulic Acid cocktail that drenches the skin with an infusion of powerful antioxidants, and offers advanced protection from photo aging, UV damage and hyperpigmentation.
- Kakadu Plum: highest naturally occurring Vitamin C
- Gallic Acid: antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal, anti-inflammatory
- Astaxanthin: strongest antioxidant vitamin in nature
- Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate (high potency antioxidant): helps to prevent the breakdown of cells due to environmental exposure
- Ferulic Acid (powerful antioxidant): neutralizes free radicals, helps to prevent UV damage
- Emblica: free cascading antioxidant, reduces hyperpigmentation
The approach of autumn means daylight starts to shorten and students (and parents!) prepare for back to school. In our area, as beautiful as it is, autumn means fire season, and the possibility of lower air quality. When smoke affects your lungs it also affects your skin. What is the solution for deep cleansing and hydration when you can’t get to the spa? A home facial kit to fill the gap.
Continuing with our theme of self-care this month, we offer an at-home facial kit. Plan a day to soak your feet and drink tea while a special cleansing and exfoliating cocktail beautifies your skin. Facial in A Bag was created to give you options when you need a skin reboot. The kit offers a chance to kick back at home, enjoy quiet time while becoming more beautiful.
Facials are a way to rejuvenate and refresh the skin, and are especially effective when transitioning from one season to another. We’ve prepared this special kit and instructions for your perfect, relaxing and effective home facial.
Deeply cleaning and exfoliating helps protect the skin from these environmental factors. It also sloughs off the dehydrated, dead skin cells, readying them for nourishing antioxidants. After exfoliation, a rejuvenating mask is applied to protect, regenerate and stimulate the skin. The mask helps reduce inflammation and heal the skin. Lastly, the Antioxidant Serum includes high-potency Vitamin C, recognized universally for its ability to heal and protect the skin. The result is a beautifully refreshed and healthy complexion.
Key Products included in Facial in A Bag:
EXFOLIATING PEEL This gentle flower acid-based peel dissolves devitalized cells, exposing a more youthful appearance. Apply to face, neck and décolleté and relax for 3 min. Remove with our gentle cleanser, washing thoroughly with tepid water. Active ingredients include Hibiscus Sabdariffa Flower and Lactic acids to provide non-irritating exfoliation while nourishing the epidermis. Vit-A-Like plant extract stimulates cell turnover, reduces fine lines and promotes a more even skin tone. Tego® Cistus and Stemlastin are included to protect DNA, reduce inflammation and protect from environmental assaults like smoke and dry air while encouraging skin rejuvenation. Acti-White targets skin pigmentation.
REVITALIZING MASK The revitalizing mask detoxifies and balances skin with Bentonite and Kaolin clay while stimulating cellular regeneration. Seaweed extract and Aloe use nourishing properties to repair skin. Colloidal Silver is an antibacterial that reduces inflammation while essential vitamins and antioxidants renew and repair skin.
ANTIOXIDANT SERUM The high potency multi-C and Ferulic Acid cocktail drenches the skin with an infusion of powerful antioxidants, and offers protection from UV damage. In addition, Astaxanthin is used because it is the strongest antioxidant vitamin in nature, and combined with Ferulic Acid and Emblica antioxidant, skin becomes softer, healthier with more even skin tone.
The Calming Kit was created for red, irritated, and allergy-prone skin. This kit is also an excellent maintenance program for rosacea, post-laser and postoperative care to help promote healing. Designed to offer a take-home version of the Sensitive Facial, the kit includes the correct anti-inflammatory products to ensure your skin continues to heal. It reduces redness with Arnica and Aloe, two ingredients long-recommended for skin health. The kit provides a hydrating and gentle cleanser, a Calming Serum and a Calming Cream. We created this kit after observing so many patients with “over-wrought” skin. This kit is ideal as a reset for the skin, to calm and moisturize the skin while preparing it for more rejuvenating treatments.
A natural part of aging is loss of skin elasticity, especially in the most visible and inconvenient places; that is, our neck and face. Our neck and decollete is often subject to premature aging because of the quality of the skin (thin and delicate) and the lack of proper skin care. We see our patients who’ve religiously treated their face with proper cleansing and care, but have neglected the neck and decollete. With this in mind, we’ve assembled the Firming Kit to help focus on that area with targeted products.
The Firming Kit features TITOK naturals Rejuvenating Serum — a multi-peptide booster treatment with low molecular hyaluronic acid — as well as our Neck & Decollete Salve. This kit ideal for patients 45 and over with dry, sun-damaged or mature skin with lines, wrinkles and discoloration.
One of the most effective ingredients in the Rejuvenating Serum is SesaFlash. Derived from sesame seeds, this ingredient instantly and visibly smooths and tightens skin while offering long lasting hydration. The Neck And Decollete Salve features Pepha®Tight, a microalgae extract that works to tighten lax skin and lift the area around the neck and jowls.
To use, gently massage a quarter-size amount of the salve in the morning and evening into your neck and décolletage area on top of the appropriate serum and cream. Apply a few drops of the serum at night to the same areas, avoiding the eyes.
We yearn for a dewy complexion and smooth skin. Healthy beautiful skin needs cleansing, nourishment, and protection. Warm weather brings new challenges for your skin, and hydration tops the list.
TITOK naturals® hydration systems are based on 40 years experience and knowledge. We call our product kits “systems” because they are formulated to yield the best results when used together. The TITOK naturals® toner, cleanser, cream and serum are formulated to work synergistically. Each individual product is created with powerful ingredients that will improve skin tone, texture and appearance. When the entire system is used each product builds on each other. Within a week skin improves and exciting changes are evident.
In the spring we focus on hydration with the Hydration Kit. All of our products contain exceptionally effective ingredients for skin hydration, including hyaluronic acid, shea butter, avocado, jojoba and rose hip oil. The Hydration kit is created for those with truly dehydrated skin who need to restore skin moisture with a combination of effective ingredients.
Throughout the TITOK naturals® skin care line we include ingredients to hydrate and heal the skin, including antioxidant Green Tea extract, Clover Flower extract and Vitamin E.
Cleansing is the first step in the simple TITOK naturals® regimen. The Cleansing Milk smells wonderful and the creamy texture cleans without making the skin feel dry. The Hydrating Toner balances the skin’s PH after cleansing to help product absorption. The Hydrating Toner can also be used throughout the day to freshen and hydrate the skin, even over makeup.
The next step after cleaning and toning is TITOK naturals® Serum. The Hydrating Serum is formulated with smaller hyaluronic acid molecules to deeply penetrate and hydrate skin. Directly after serum, Hydrating Cream with shea butter is applied to provide a moisture barrier. The cream also includes plant collagen for smoothing lines and wrinkles, and Vitamin E for fighting free radicals and promoting collagen production.
All TITOK naturals® products contain healing and hydrating ingredients, but we formulate products based on skin concerns to make it easier for our clients to target their key concerns. We clearly list the active ingredients on our website so that you know exactly what ingredients do and why we use them.
