New Products for 2016

This past year Diana Lee Cosmetics has developed a couple of new products for our customers. These new products are Hair Be Gone Sugar Wax, Baby's Own Body Butter with Lavender & Diana Lee's Puffy Eye Cream. These new products have done very well this year for us and we have received many compliments for the new products.

Hair Be Gone Sugar Wax.:
Sugaring is the new wax for hair removal.

Body Sugaring is simple and all natural. The sugar paste composed only of sugar, lemon and water so there are none of the artificial ingredients that can cause an allergic reaction.

Body Sugaring is less painful than waxing because sugar doesn't adhere to live skin cells the way wax does. This reduces irritation to your skin. So your Brazilian will be more comfortable.

As opposed to waxing, Body Sugaring extracts the hair from the follicle in the natural direction of hair growth. This results in fewer hairs breaking off rather than being extracted, as well as less pain, less skin irritation and fewer ingrown hairs. Sugaring while a young hair is in the earliest stage of growth (the anagen stage) results in permanent hair removal over time. And with each treatment the hairs become easier to remove and that means less pain. This is particularly important for Brazilians.

Baby's Own Body Butter with Lavender:
Baby's Own Body Butter is a great way of nourishing the skin, especially in this cold season. Effective in treating diaper rash and cradle cap. Can also be used for a calming baby massage and for a gentle baby belly rub. Our Lavender Baby's Own Body Butter is soothing goodness to your skin and will moisturize deep with a fantastic light fragrance of Lavender. Made with our special mixture of Coconut Oil, Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter, Sweet Almond Oil, 100% Pure Vitamin E Oil and lightly scented with Lavender 40/42 Essential oil. You and Baby will just love this new Baby's Own Body Butter.

Diana Lee's Puffy Eye Cream:
We have developed our own Under Eye Cream to help reduce dark circles and under eye puffiness. We have infused caffeine with Sweet Almond Oil.

If you are a coffee lover then you definitely love the products that are made from coffee. Coffee is an excellent beauty aid, it is full of antioxidants and the caffeine in the coffee helps to increase the blood circulation that helps to treat cellulite, dark circles, tighten and brighten the skin. It also helps to promote hair growth, adding natural highlights and shine to your hair.

Improves skin texture – Coffee is said to tighten the skin and improve the texture of it

Increases blood flow – The caffeine that is a part of the coffee increases the blood flow to the skin. This decreases the appearance of the cellulite, varicose veins and stretch marks. It also melts the fat cells from the body.

Acts as an antioxidant – Caffeine is a natural anti-oxidant and is said to fight with free radicals in the body that causes oxidation. Thus, you can rely on coffee oil to ward off wrinkles and fine lines.

Coffee promotes hair growth – The caffeine stimulates the follicle’s ability to produce hair.

Reduces Puffy eyes and dark circles – Caffeine, when applied topically to the skin, constricts the blood vessels under the skin and help reduce puffy eyes and also treat dark circles.

Diana & I look forward to 2017 and many more new products for our customers.

Fresh Face Cleansing Balm



This year we designed a new Face Cleansing Balm called Fresh Face. This new cleansing balm is made from the best ingredients for your skin and is 100% all natural. This new product is made from, Bees Wax, Shea Butter, Witch Hazel, Sunflower Oil, Olive Oil, Lemon Essential Oil & Lavender 40/42 Essential Oil.

Our Fresh Face Cleaning Balm will remove all makeup even water proof makeup, daily dirt and grim and is a great moisturizer for you skin. It will leave your skin clean & fresh.
This new Face Cleansing Balm works so well we decided to make a second product called Fresh Face II for sensitive skin

Beeswax: is a natural emulsifier that infuses skin creams with the delicate rich scent of honey while sealing in moisture. It covers skin with a light, imperceptible protective layer that allows the skin to breath. Added to skin creams, beeswax creates the bridge between oil and water allowing the two to mix flawlessly. Not only does beeswax allow oil and water to mix, it adds healing, soothing and deep moisturizing properties to skin creams.

Shea Butte: Moisturizing: The concentration of natural vitamins and fatty acids in Shea butter makes it incredibly nourishing and moisturizing for skin. It is often used to remedy dry skin and to help protect the skin's natural oils.

Sunflower Oil: retains moisture, and in preventing the skin from drying out, it helps to keep wrinkles at bay and the skin looking youthful and vibrantly healthy right from birth. It is extremely powerful at keeping away bacteria and maintaining youthful skin.

Olive Oil: contains three major antioxidants: vitamin E, polyphenols, and phytosterols. Antioxidants, when topically applied, may help protect the skin from premature skin aging. Vitamin E partly accounts for the anti-aging benefits of olive oil because it helps restore skin smoothness and protects against ultraviolet light. Hydroxytyrosol, a rather rare compound found in olive oil, also prevents free radical damage to the skin.

Lemon oil has a fresh, clean scent that activates the body and the mind. The oil has many different properties, one of the most important being its ability to activate the white corpuscles that defend the body against any infection. For colds and fatigue, use five to seven drops of lemon oil in your vaporizer to clear your lungs and energize your mind.

In addition to its medicinal properties, lemon oil is nourishing for skin and hair alike. Lemon oil is not only good for oily skin, but it can also smooth and rejuvenate any cracked or dry areas. For oil prone skin, mix 10-15 drops lemon oil with two ounces of jojoba cream to keep your skin clear. Tired of the hard calluses, corns, and/or bunions making your feet hard, crusty, and sore? Try rubbing a few drops of lemon oil on to the bottoms of your feet every night and before you know it, you'll have soft, moisturized skin! Many men and women struggle with oily hair, which can be alleviated with the help of lemon oil. Add four drops to wet hands and apply to freshly washed hair before rinsing. Not only does lemon oil reduce your need to shampoo frequently, which can cause further damage to your hair, but it also leaves your locks with a nice shine!

Witch Hazel: Since witch hazel is usually used to treat existing skin conditions, people often forget that it is also good at refreshing and rejuvenating regular, healthy skin. For example, applying some organic witch hazel oil to our face can help seal in moisture and refine the pores.(6) Aside from improving our looks and providing anti-aging benefits, using witch hazel in this way can also guard us from environmental pollutants and other external toxins that are responsible for so many skin problems in the first place.

Lavender Essential Oil: The health benefits of lavender essential oil include its ability to eliminate nervous tension, relieve pain, disinfect the scalp and skin, enhance blood circulation and treat respiratory problems. The Latin name of lavender is Lavare, which means "to wash", due to its aroma which has a particularly clean aroma.

If you have not tried our Fresh Face Cleansing Balm it's about time you did. Your going to love it.

Diana Lee Cosmetics Face Masks



Face masks are one of my favourite skin care products.  They’re easy to apply, fun to use and are great at delivering results. My favourite thing about applying a good face mask is the feeling of tightened and toned skin after a single use!

Should everyone use a face mask? Absolutely! Face masks are the perfect skin care treatment to help you with your skin care concerns.  The right face mask can help hydrate skin, remove excess oils and help improve the appearance of your pores.  They’re also an excellent way to help pull out impurities. Another advantage of wearing a face mask: the feeling of being pampered like you’re at a spa from the comfort of your own home!


Every healthy skin care regimen includes daily-use and weekly-use products. You can use a face mask once a week, or you can use it more then that depending on your skin and your skin care concerns. Both men and women can benefit significantly from using a mask and here’s why.

If you have purchased one of our fantastic face masks from Diana Lee Cosmetics, like the Blueberry Delight, Strawberry Shake remember that they were fresh made when you ordered it and should be kept in the fridge. You can take it out about 20 minutes before using just to warm it up a bit. Remember they only last about two weeks. Or the Chocolate Mud Pie Face Mask. It does not need to be refrigerated and will last up to about a month and a half.

5 reasons to apply a face mask right now

 

Relaxation

Face masks don’t just offer results that improve the overall appearance of your skin, they can also be quite therapeutic. When they’re infused with aromatic essential oils like mint and rosemary, a face mask can lift your spirit by stimulating your senses. Using a face mask should be treated as a luxury.  Set aside a bit of “me” time when you decide to give yourself a mask. Draw a hot bath, light some candles and let the magic of the mask begin to work. You’ll be drawn into a wonderful sensorial experience that will not only relax the mind and spirit but will also leave you with fabulous looking skin.

Deep cleansing

Sure, cleansing each day helps to clean your skin by removing dirt, oil, makeup and impurities from the surface of the skin. But did you know that proper masking takes the cleansing process to a whole new level? Only a good facial mask can help to draw out impurities that hide beneath the top layers of the epidermis. Some people say that their skin goes through a “detoxing” when they use a mask because they actually notice the changes in the skin while this is happening. Masks are incredible at providing this deeper cleansing process that leads to an improvement in the appearance of pores that you can see and feel. Who doesn’t love that?

Unclog pores

Masking with a product that contains Bentonite clay or Calamine Powder helps to remove dirt and absorb excess oils. It’ll also help to remove the build-up of dead skin cells that accumulate on our skin.   When you remove all the debris from the surface of your skin, it’ll help to unclog pores too. We all know that clogged pores are nothing but trouble! Yucky stuff gets trapped in our pores and gets pushed deep down into the pore where bacteria can develop. Once that bacteria starts to grow, it’s all over for our skin because we will soon get a blemish, a flurry of breakouts or even one giant pimple that will wreak havoc on our life for several days. Regular face masks help to keep our skin surface clean and our pores unclogged. This is an excellent reason to use your face mask right now!

Glowing skin

Masks, especially ones with tingly mint in the formulation, can help stimulate blood circulation. The process of the mask drying on your skin and beginning to harden, along with the removal of the mask causes an expansion in the blood vessels of your skin. This ensures an overall improvement in skin tone. You’ll be left with softer-feeling and smoother-looking skin, and you’ll also notice a radiant glow and more refreshed appearance.  So relax, feel the tingle, breathe in the minty aroma and wait for your skin transformation!

Helps your overall regimen

Masking helps all of your other skin care products work more efficiently. If you want your day lotions, serums and night time products to be absorbed by your skin quicker and deeper, then a face mask is a must. By masking on a regular basis, you can ensure that your toning, hydrating and protecting products will all perform better, providing you with the results you’re looking to achieve at a much faster pace.

Apply a face mask in 5 simple steps


Step 1: Be prepared to make a mess.  If you’re going to apply a facemask while relaxing in the tub, you don’t have to worry about making a mess. You can cover your face, neck and throat and just relax. If you don’t have time for a bath, then take the time to pull back your hair so it’s not near your face.  Be sure to wear clothing that you don’t mind getting messy. Chances are, you’ll make a bit of a mess when you use a mask.  But, hey, that’s the fun of it all!

Step 2: I always recommend starting with a freshly cleansed face. Use your daily cleanser to remove all of the surface dirt, oils and makeup before you apply your mask. This will help to ensure that you receive all of the benefits your face mask was designed to deliver.

Step 3: Pat dry your face do not apply the mask to a wet face as the mask might not work as it should when your face is wet.  Remember it’s called a face mask for a reason. You should look like you’re wearing a mask when you put it on. Never rub the mask directly into your skin. It should be applied like frosting on a cupcake. Be sure to avoid the eye area, keep your nostrils clear and extend the mask from your face, down your neck and throat. Nothing worse than a young looking face and an old wrinkly neck ,right?  I always treat my neck as an extension of my face.

Step 4:  Just wait! You can use this 10  to 15 minutes or if using a store bought product red the directions. Now relax, style your hair, check your email…whatever you want. Just be conscientious of the time and follow the directions. If the directions read leave on for up to 15 minutes, then that’s what you need to do. Just don’t leave your face mask on for 20 or 30 minutes. Be sure to follow them exactly.

Step 5:  It’s time to remove the mask. Masks are designed to adhere to your skin. You don’t want to be too rough when removing it. Use plenty of water and a wash cloth to gently wash away the mask. Pat, don’t rub, your skin dry with a towel. It doesn’t get any easier then that when it comes to using mask.


Extra! Top tips two for a happy face mask experience


Beauty tip 1: Before applying your face mask, dab a small amount of eye gel or eye cream around the eyes.  This will help to protect this very delicate area from dehydration.

Beauty tip 2:  When your face mask mask has dried and it’s time to come off, simply place a warm, wet washcloth over your face and hold it onto your skin for a few seconds. Repeat this a few times to help loosen up and dissolve the face mask from your skin. this tip will make the rinsing off process much easier and gentler for your skin.
***
Everyone should introduce masking into their skin care regimen, if they haven’t done so already. For just a few (relaxing) minutes a day, your skin will go through a noticeable transformation that you can see and feel. You may look silly doing it, which makes it all the more fun!

I would love to hear any masking tips you may have. Please leave them for me in the comments section below. And remember, there’s no time like the present to kick your skin care routine up a notch by introducing a face mask!

Benefits of Cocoa Butter



Cocoa butter is one of my most favourite ingredients; I love using it because it smells so good, and because it has so many great benefits for the skin. This is one of the indredients used in our Mosturizing Creams.

What is cocoa butter & how is it produced?
Cocoa butter comes from the cocoa bean which is found inside the cocoa pod which grows on from the cacao tree. Cacao pods are also where we get cocoa from to make chocolate – that’s why good-quality cocoa butter has a wonderful chocolate-y scent.

To produce the cocoa butter, these seeds must be fermented in banana leaves, dried, roasted and pressed, releasing the vegetable fat we know as cocoa butter.

Alternatively, the beans can be cold-processed. Cold-pressed cocoa butter is made by pressing the whole bean thus retaining vital antioxidants. This cold-pressing process uses only the heat from the friction caused when pressing the bean which helps protect the antioxidants.

How does cocoa butter benefit the skin?
Because of its natural make-up and its nutrient and fatty acid content, cocoa butter is amazing for dry skin and can actually penetrate further than the top layer of the skin, meaning it moisturises deep-down and really nourishes the skin.
  • Antioxidant action
Free-radicals are small molecules formed during the body’s metabolism when energy is generated from glucose in every cell in your body. They are also formed by exposure to pollutants such as car fumes, pesticides, and tobacco smoke.

These free-radicals destroy cells, and when these are skin cells you begin to age. Your skin wrinkles and dries up, and you begin to take on the look of somebody years older than you are. They do this through a process known as oxidation (a good way to think of it is to consider how iron rusts when it oxidises), and antioxidants can prevent it. They neutralize the free-radicals, and prevent your skin cells from being destroyed.

Cocoa butter contains a number of different antioxidants which can kill-off a wide range of different free-radicals. In fact, cocoa butter contains a much higher antioxidant concentration then even blueberries and other super foods.
  • Stretch mark reduction
Cocoa butter is widely noted to help reduce stretch marks. This is most likely due to its nutrient and anti-oxidant content, as we’ve seen above.
There are no guarantees, but many women claim that regular use of cocoa butter was what kept their stretch marks away.
  • Other benefits
1. Cocoa butter is high in fatty acids, meaning it can penetrate deep-down into the skin and hydrate from within.
2. Cocoa butter can also be helpful for many skin problems like eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, and skin irritation.
