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.

Sensitive Skin Alert: Chemicals in Makeup
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?

Sensitive skin alert: Fragrance
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.
For more information go to Supermild™. or SIRCUIT® Nineoneone™.
Best cleanser ever!!!
"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”
We absolutely agree!

2013 Epic Beauty Awards – Best of Natural Beauty
6 big differences between men’s and women’s skin.
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).
