Ultramarine blue, a pigment commonly found in eye shadow, can be a bit of a bully to sensitive skin. If it’s giving you the blues, find relief by using neutral eye shadow shades like beige or brown, which expose skin to fewer irritating chemical pigments. Also, “mica, a light-reflecting particle with chemical properties, is found in mineral makeup and bronzing powder, and it can be a big itch inducer,” says Zoe Draelos, M.D., a consulting professor of dermatology at Duke University School of Medicine.
Another culprit is bismuth oxychloride, a sheen enhancer that’s known to cause stinging. “Unfortunately, these ingredients are found in products we aggressively rub in with a brush, which exacerbates the irritation by pushing the product deep into the pores,” she says. Choosing liquid blushes, bronzers, and foundations (which aren’t brushed on) will keep your skin placated. So the next time you find yourself buying makeup, reach for cosmetics that are free of bad guys like fragrance, mica, and talc.
We also recommend cleaning those make-up brushes on a regular basis, but that should be a no-brainer. Right?

What delights your nose can certainly aggravate your skin.
Did you know that fragrance is the number one allergen in cosmetics and skin care and you can credit citrus, floral, and minty scents for making your skin go berserk? So choose fragrance-free beauty and household cleaning products, and seek out those that have the words hypoallergenic and formaldehyde-free on their labels.
At SIRCUIT® the primary source of any product scent is from beautiful blend of Essential Oils which, by the way, also contain therapeutic properties and are phthalate free. All designed to be very light and quick to dissipate, but also smell fantastic.
But for those of you sensitive folks looking to avoid scent altogether, try a cleanser like Supermild™ that is fragrance free. This lush gentle foaming cleanser really is the next generation of clean and pure moisturizing cleansers, and of course, it’s also gluten free.
When your old sweat pants and favorite fuzzy slippers just won’t do the trick for our stressed our skin, we sensitive Sally’s turn to our favorite, SIRCUIT® Nineoneone™; a calming serum formulated to radically reduce redness, irritation and improve the appearance of couperose and stressed out skin!
Comfort sets in and the redness vanishes as it instantly corrects blushing and flushing by strengthening the skin’s barrier, helping to keep it both cool and calm.
"I’ve used X-Trap for over 10 years AND my 15 year old, who uses strong prescription topicals for acne, just started using it too. For him, all other face washes resulted in painful, persistent dryness, and, being 15, he refuses to use moisturizers. After only a week of using X-Trap, his skin has cleared dramatically! X-Trap’s advantage over other cleansers: it’s extremely gentle AND very deeply, thoroughly cleansing at the same time”

1. Men have oilier skin. Even though men have smaller sebaceous (oil) glands, their skin has higher secretion levels of sebum. Oilier skin is prone to many issues that include acne and blemishes. Men’s products that factor in these common problems will offer more balance in the production of sebum. Use Sir Activ for exfoliation and Fixzit for spot treatments.
2. Men have more facial hair. Men’s facial hair is generally coarse and is toughened by testosterone. This can present skin concerns for men if they develop pseudofolliculitis (ingrown hairs). This is where the coarse hair curls back or grows sideways in the skin follicle and is mostly caused by shaving. Men’s skin care products that reduce cellular blockages and control infection will eliminate this problem. Use Immaculate Mist daily.
3. Men have more sensitive skin. Most men’s facial skin experiences some sensitivity such as being prone to redness and under eye puffiness. The irritating effects of shaving and other damaging conditions such as sun, wind, cuts, scratches, and chemicals result in more sensitivity. Quality male products that are designed to strengthen and soothe skin and offer daily protection will promote a healthier skin. Try Cool Aid.
4. Men have more acidic skin. A mans skin is more acidic with a pH of 4.5 and an overall sweat composition that contains more lactic acid contributing to the skins acidity. Cleansing, the first step to any program, is most effective for men when using a cleanser that has a higher pH to achieve more alkalinity. X-Trap with a 7 pH works fantastic.
5. Men have thicker skin. Male skin has a more active fibroblast, which increases collagen, resulting in a thicker epidermis. While thicker skin may give men an advantage, the downside is that the skin contains more and deeper facials lines as they prematurely age as well as more age spots (hyperpigmentation). With regular use of early sun protection and preventative repair and healing tropical’s, men are able to maintain skin strength, tone, vitality and a marked reduction in wrinkles. Use SIRCUIT Addict and I.Cee. U.to help fight fine lines.
6. Men also have a higher rate of skin cancer. Men are more often outdoors and Caucasian men usually have a higher rate of all forms of skin cancer, so the professional must recognize the signs of basil cell carcinoma and refer those cases to a physician. The most common skin cancer for men is melanoma - generally found on the upper back, neck, face and ears. For maximum sun protection, men must use a good sunscreen with Zinc Oxide that contains a naturally high occurring sun protection factor, like SIRCUIT’s Sol Avert SPF30, and Day Care (for daily use).
Of course, a week couldn’t go by without another great review on one of my personal favorites, X-Trap! This cleanser really is amazing, but you won’t really know how good it is until you try it, so what praytell are you waiting for?
See what Kimberly Odom, founder and Editor-in-Chief of the Beauty Fox has to say about SIRCUIT Cosmeceuticals after her beautiful review of the 7 essentials kit.
“I’m thrilled to introduce SIRCUIT Skin Careto you. Sircuit is a natural, green skin care line that shows lasting results. For over 12 years Sircuit has been pioneering the way for “green”, chemical free skin care that gives results and heals troubled skin. Like I said, I recently began transforming my beauty arsenal to a more natural one and while not all of my beauty products are chemical free, I have drastically cut out many products that were doing more harm than good. My skin has always been sensitive and after developing severe dryness and mild ezcema this winter I began searching for a more holistic approach to skin care. My greatest revelation after experimenting with different natural skincare lines, like SIRCUIT, was that my skin was reacting to chemicals and parabens found in the products I had previously been using (for basically my entire life). Sircuit is free of articial preservatives, colors and fragrance, and the line takes pride in being cruelty free. The more ingredient savvy I’ve become the higher my standards are for honest, clean skin care. I appreciate the fact that Sircuit includes a list of all the ingredients for each product on their website, as well as an extensive ingredient glossary. The line also offers free skin consultations over the phone to give you a customized skincare plan. Love that!”
This beauty and wellness expert really goes into depth on each of the SIRCUIT products in the kit and her vast knowledge extends to usage and application as well.

An antioxidant is a particular ingredient that will help to prevent damage to skin cells from free radicals. To understand why that’s important one must understand what a free radical is. A free radical in the simplest terms is a molecule that has an unpaired electron. It is searching for something to pair up with…in this case a healthy skin cell!
Antioxidants help to prevent the damage to the cells by slowing or preventing the effect of free radicals, which start oxidation — a process that causes damage from oxygen that can lead to cell dysfunction. If you’ve seen a peeled apple turn brown, you’ve seen oxidation in action. As antioxidants block the effects of free radicals, they end up being oxidized.
This is why it’s important to constantly replenish your supply of antioxidants.
Here are the top 5 ways Antioxidants can help in skincare.
1. Anti-inflammation: One of the most desirable benefits of antioxidants in skin-care products is the calming of inflammation. Reducing inflammation helps to promote a more even skin tone and helps keep acne and wrinkles at bay.
2. Skin firming: Another top benefit of antioxidant skin care is skin firming. Antioxidants may actually reverse the effects of aging by improving skin health and rejuvenating its appearance, especially when combined with peptide therapies.
3. Reduced appearance of wrinkles: Although it is nearly impossible to make wrinkles disappear, skin-care products with antioxidants can help plump out the skin and make it appear more youthful, especially when combined with peptide therapies.
4. Scar treatment: Reducing the appearance of scar tissue is another important benefit of antioxidants in skin care. Scar tissue has a different cell structure than that of healthy skin, making it rigid. Many types of antioxidants, including the phytoantioxidants, help to increase blood flow to scar tissue, minimizing the look of the scar and blending in the development of new skin. These are even more powerful when used in conjunction with Epidermal Growth factors or (EGF). See SIRCUIT® OMG™with EGF by going here.
5. Repair of sun damage: We all know that too much sun is dangerous, but it can also be bad for your skin’s appearance, drying it out and damaging your cells. Sun damage can also make skin appear tough and wrinkly. Antioxidants that stimulate blood flow in the skin can help encourage cellular regeneration. It is still essential to use preventative measures with the added use of natural sun protection products.
6.SIRCUIT® Addict™is just one of the many products loaded with antioxidants and anti-aging ingredients.

All SIRCUIT® products and formulas have been 100% ingredient transparent since 2002 because we believe strongly that all of us need to know as much about the products (and especially the ingredients) we are putting on our body as possible.
What makes SIRCUIT® products unique in the crowded skincare marketplace is that each formula is strategically developed to address a problem from many different directions. We do that by carefully selecting the ingredients and unique technologies included in the products we offer.
For example did you know that our cleanser (X-Trap™) has a brand new dirt resistant peptide technology added that helps to keep your skin cleaner, longer? Or … did you know our under eye crème (White Out™) includes an new ingredient technology that harnesses the energy of the sun to create topically, the healing light (much like LED light treatments) you might get from a spa treatment?
On our website SIRCUITSKIN.com, we have compiled a very comprehensive glossary of ingredient descriptions with links back to all of the SIRCUIT® products that that particular ingredient or technology your looking for is formulated in. We do this so that our clients and consumers know exactly which products to use for each skin concern and have a better understanding why the products we offer are so effective. This glossary is designed to make it simple and easy to understand, because ingredients matter!
If fact, our customers are some of the smartest, ingredient savvy consumers in the industry today and we couldn’t be happier.

We cover everything in this formula from ingredients that specifically target wrinkles and fine lines with light dispersing diamond core particles to smoothing fine line-filling peptides and even a brand new ingredient that captures UV light as energy and, much like LED light therapy, and transfers it to beneficial aspects of the skin to heal, diminish the appearance of wrinkles, as well as overall tone/radiance improvement.
Minimizes dark circles and under-eye puffiness.
Improves skin hydration, firmness and elasticity.
Strengthens and thickens the delicate skin around the eye.

EGF’S play an important role in the regulation of cell growth, proliferation and differentiation and survival. It stimulates the production of hyaluronic acid, accelerates cell proliferation and differentiation of epidermal tissue. So much so, that the discovery of EGF won Stanley Cohen and Rita Levi-Motalcini a Nobel Prize in Physiology and Medicine in 1986.
EGF’S act by binding to epidermal growth factor receptors (EGFR) on the cell surface ultimately leading to DNA synthesis and cell proliferation.
EGF’S can help to repair epidermis, delay aging, inhibit wrinkles, and moisten skin, while also softening scars and improving the overall texture and condition of the skin.
In younger people, the body can produce enough EGF to promote epidermal cell growth, but as we age, EGF production decreases gradually, and the renewal of epidermal cells markedly slows down. The deficiency of EGF will result in delayed wound healing, difficult scar healing, skin aging, and formation of wrinkles, freckles, and age pigment.
EGF’S rejuvenate the skin by helping skin stem cells to absorb nutrients, speed cell metabolism, accelerate skin cell division and growth, and stimulate the synthesis of hyaluronic acid and glycoproteins.
EGF’S also accelerates cell regeneration and tissue repair: by helping to promote the healing of a wound surface of skin, reducing scar contracture and skin cell’s abnormal proliferation.
They also can help to whiten skin: EGF help’s promote the growth of new cells, which replace cells injured by ultraviolet radiation by reducing the number of melanocytes in the skin.
The bottom line is that using products formulated with EGF ingredients simply results in beautiful skin, which is why we are OMG over EGF!

Here’s a little background on Presidents’ Day for all of you! Washington’s Birthday officially honors the life and work of George Washington, the first president of the United States. The day commemorates past presidents of the USA. Washington’s Birthday is sometimes known as Presidents’ Day. This is because while most states have adopted Washington’s Birthday, some states officially celebrate Presidents’ Day.
Some states pay particular attention to Abraham Lincoln, as his birthday was also in mid-February. In the weeks or days leading up to the holiday, schools often organize events and lessons for students about the presidents of the United States and George Washington in particular. It is a popular day for stores to start their sales.
The US federal holiday is on the third Monday of February each year, but records show that George Washington’s birthday is on February 22.

Happy Chinese New Year from SIRCUIT®!… or should we say Xin Nian Kuai Le!
Just like what Long Hwa-shu of The Chicago Sun Times said, “The New Year didn’t start out quite right for you? Try the Chinese New Year for a second chance.” We know it’s only been a month, but hey, we thought some of you might like another chance at a fresh start!
“It’s the Year of the Horse, which falls on Jan. 31 [and goes through February 14th] on the lunar calendar. A lucky year, according to the Chinese. The Year of the Horse kicks out the Year of the Snake — not a good year considering all the turmoil, conflicts and tragedies in the world.”
For those of you who celebrate the Chinese New Year- what are your fun traditions or your favorite dishes? We’d love to hear them! From all of us here at SIRCUIT® we wish you a year filled with prosperity and good luck!
For a little Wednesday distraction … we were clicking thru the web and stumbled upon and absolutely adored this article. You can easily see why we instantly fell in love with these little guys and their sweaters!
Back in 2011, the Rena Oil Spill in New Zealand caused a large amount of environmental damage to the beaches, birds, and wildlife. Hundreds of blue penguins in the immediate area were covered by the oil. Many volunteers from the Oiled Wildlife Response team helped scrub the penguins clean with detergent.
The sweaters were used to help keep the penguins from preening their feathers and swallowing the oil, which can cause them to become poisoned and die. The good folks at Skeinz.com (an all natural yarn store in New Zealand) recognized the urgent need and set off to knit as many sweaters as they could.
The sweaters worked very well and quickly there was an abundance to go around. The people of Skeinz didn’t let any of those extra sweaters go to waste -
“To ensure all this hard work was realised to it’s full potential - we placed the extra jumper sweaters onto penguin mascots & the profits from their sale was used to set up the Skeinz Penguin Rescue fund. Since 2011, we have donated thousands of dollars towards the clean up after the Rena spill […].
We have now almost exhausted the surplus of jumpers we originally received. In order to keep the fund going, we require fresh jumpers for our mascots. So if you would like to donate to the cause by the way of knitting a penguin jumper, we’d love to accept your donation.”
Though none of us here at SIRCUIT know how to knit, we sure wish we did. Those penguins are so darn cute.
For those of you who DO know how to knit, please visit skeinz.com for the pattern, and to learn more about this fund.

Face mapping combines modern dermatology with ancient Chinese medicine. The idea is that there’s a correlation between your internal organs and different zones of your face.
Face mapping makes a lot of sense when you consider the fact that your skin is an organ too (the largest organ in your body, in fact). Besides just being an interesting topic, educating yourself about face mapping can actually help to clear up your skin. Once you’ve identified what’s causing your acne, it’s easier to prevent it. While some causes are unavoidable (monthly hormone swings, for instance), diet and lifestyle changes can definitely help to clear up your skin.
Without further ado, here are what your breakouts are telling you in five different zones of your face…
Forehead. Breakouts across the forehead are often triggered by stress or sleep deprivation. Make sure to log 7 to 9 hours of beauty rest a night to keep your forehead clear.
Above the brow. The area above the brow is affected by your immune system. Breakouts here tend to happen right before, after, or during a cold or flu. If you notice a breakout in this zone, slow down for a couple days, drink plenty of water and eat these 10 immune boosting foods.
Between brows. Breakouts between the brows can be caused by overindulgence of unhealthy foods or a food allergy. Cutting back on sugar, dairy, rich foods, and alcohol can help clear up skin in this zone.
Cheeks. Your cheeks are linked to your respiratory system. Smoking or breathing polluted air can cause breakouts here.
Side of chin. The sides of your chin are affected by hormones. Breakouts here occur around the time of your period and happen on one side or another depending on which ovary is ovulating that month.
