8 Beauty Sins You Might Be Committing
By Woman’s Day, You’ve got your daily beauty regimen down to a science: Wash, rinse, repeat. Your attention to every pore is immaculate, yet why oh why does it seem that, despite all that pampering, your looks are lacking luster? Unbeknownst to you, a few faux pas may be foiling your grooming routine. Here are eight bad beauty habits and how to break them.
•Drinking Through a Straw
Constant puckering can bring on premature wrinkles. Repeated facial expressions, such as pursing your lips, cause fine lines around your mouth to form over time, says Dr. Graf. The solution: Lose the straw and drink directly from the glass, bottle or can.
•Washing Your Face Before Your Hair
If you have sensitive skin, this can be a real no-no, says Dr. Graf. Pores get clogged, leading to breakouts, especially along the hairline. Make sure you thoroughly cleanse away any residue from your face after rinsing your hair, she says.
•Wearing Too Much Moisturizer
You may be extra-vigilant about keeping skin supple, but too much of a good thing can have a reverse effect. Excess cream won’t absorb deeply enough into cellular tissue, so skin won’t be able to breathe and pores will clog, says Raichur. Sometimes this can even manifest in dryness.
•Rubbing Your Eyes
“The area around your eyes is the thinnest, most sensitive area of the face,” says Dr. Graf. “It needs to be handled with kid gloves.” The more you rub it, the more it will stretch, she says. Since there are no oil glands there, the skin has very little give. Repeated rubbing or pulling on the lids, especially when putting in contact lenses, can cause skin to slacken and fine lines to form, she says.
•Wearing a Too Tight Ponytail
The tighter the ponytail the more prone the hair will be to falling out, says Dr. Graf. Pulling every hair into a taut tuft causes traction alopecia, a form of hair loss that leads to a receding hairline, she says.
•Cleansing With Water That’s Too Hot
“A temperature that’s scorching causes broken capillaries on the face,” says Raichur. The capillary walls are very thin and elastic, so they are reactive to temperature, she says. To keep skin balanced, always cleanse with lukewarm or tepid water.
•Sleeping on The Same Side of Your Face
We can’t always control where our head hits the pillow, but repeatedly snoozing in the same spot can cause fine lines to become permanently etched, says New York dermatologist Dr. Jeannette Graf. This is because skin is scrunched up against the pillow over and over again.
•Sleeping in Your Makeup
When you forget to wash your face, your skin has the chance to marinate in a day’s worth of debris and oil overnight. “The skin is unable to breathe, regenerate tissue, exfoliate dead surface cells and heal itself,” says skincare expert Pratima Raichur, owner of Pratima Ayurvedic Skin Care Spa.

Sensitive Skin Alert: Chemicals in Soaps and Cleansers
They may leave you feeling squeaky clean, but cleansing agents known as surfactants play a dirty trick on sensitive skin. Sodium lauryl sulfate is a harsh emulsifier that is found in body washes, facial cleansers, and soap (it’s even in your toothpaste, true, go look); it helps rid the skin of dirt and oil while breaking down precious lipids, the glue that binds skin cells together, keeping them resistant to dryness and damage.
Some soaps also contain drying antibacterial agents such as tetrasodium EDTA and triclosan. Because sensitive skin is almost always dry, soaping up with moisture-sucking products can lead to itching and peeling. We have a different suggestion.
SIRCUIT’s X-Trap+ (it’s pH balanced too) and Savior+ cleansers are formulated with Sodium C14-16 Olefin Sulfonate and Sodium Cocoamphoacetate which are mild plant derived amphoteric surfactants made from the fatty acids of Coconut. They have an entirely different molecular structure than the sodium lauryl/laureth sulfates. We also formulate these cleansers with an additional shot of moisture with shea butter and bisabolol to counteract any possible drying effects from the surfactants and help to provide that necessary hydration.

The exercise of looking at someone’s glow or Aura takes skill and patience. Often times the term “Aura” is used to describe an individual’s color that surrounds their body. These “colors” depict the “True Nature” of that individual. Someone’s Aura can be described as being bright and light.
In general, the more colorful, cleaner and brighter the Aura, the better and happier the individual is. Also, the more uniform the energy distribution in the Aura, the healthier and more balanced the person is.
Although SIRCUIT does not claim to enhance anyone’s “Aura”…
We can certainly enhance your skin’s BRONZY GLOW.

Sensitive Skin Alert | The Environment
Sunny days aren’t so glee-filled for the sensitive; even the tiniest amount of daylight exposes your skin to sensitizing UV rays. Ultraviolet light mutates proteins in the skin, which damages skin cells and causes a red, stinging reaction known as photosensitivity; which is why it is always recommend to wear a physical sun block, rain or shine. Unlike potentially irritating chemical UV absorbers such as PABA, benzophenones, and cinnamates, physical blocks contain zinc oxide or titanium dioxide, which play nice with fragile skin.
We like SIRCUIT Sol-Avert™ because not only is it formulated with Zinc Oxide for an SPF of 30 but it also contains Thiotaine; a natural antioxidant that helps to prevent damage caused by UV radiation and inhibits the production of Tyrosinase.
Sadly, the dark days of winter don’t offer much of a reprieve. Chilly dry air and gusty winds steal water from your skin, leaving it to dry out, crack, and turn red. “Fall and winter wreak havoc on skin, thanks to lower humidity,” explains Ellen Marmur, M.D., a dermatologist in New York City. (If you live in a climate where damp air prevails, your skin is less likely to become dry and itchy.) Slather on a night cream rich in ceramides and water retention properties to restore hydration and prevent moisture from further leaching out of your face and body.
SIRCUIT Cloud 9™ is loaded with hydrating and nourishing ingredients like Ceramide 3, AquaMAX, and MariMoist to keep the skin soft and supple. Apply the product right after you take a shower to maximize its absorption, and reapply throughout the day if needed.
