Solving Your Winter Dry Skin Dilemma

Even though we have barely turned the heat on in our house, my skin is already objecting. My dear James is welcoming Jack Frost by lighting nice, cozy fires which is drying my skin even more, while simultaneously inducing annoying hot flashes. Of course he means well, but as outdoor temperatures go down and the air in our homes becomes drier, even more moisture is leeched from our skin. This problem is experienced to a greater degree by those of us over 40.  So, what’s the answer? Divine skin hydrator! Divine works to hold the moisture in your skin and relieves that dry, itchy feel. Give it a try after you shower in the morning – you won’t be disappointed. 

The other day a friend of mine who is a nurse asked me if she could apply Divine skin hydrator again during the day. She washes her hands and forearms a lot at work and is experiencing a lot of dryness. The answer is yes, with the caveat that you should be sure to dampen your skin first, and then apply a small amount of Divine for immediate relief.

Watch for our exciting Christmas specials coming soon! Hint: these gifts are “naughty” and “nice” at the same time!

It’s new and it’s here!!!

Hi, everybody! We had a long hot summer here in Missouri, and I know you are as ready for Fall as I am.  With this new season comes the launch of a new Albertini International product. Many of you have been asking us for a scrub for your face, something that really smooths and refreshes your skin. Our answer? Warm Love pumpkin exfoliating masque!

As we age, our skin’s cellular turnover slows w-a-a-a-y down, resulting in a rougher, dryer and congested texture. Perimenopause and menopause add in effects of dehydration, loss of elasticity and other not-so-fun issues. An efficient way to jump start and rejuvenate your skin is to exfoliate. Warm Love facial masque contains enzymatic fruit exfoliates papain and bromelain (papaya and pineapple) which work to effectively dissolve and exfoliate dead skin cells.  The warming effect of the masque and the unique properties of pumpkin enzymes (exfoliation and promoting new cell regeneration), combine with a lovely fragrance to make this new product one you are sure to love!

Those of you who have already enjoyed using our Rough Love body scrub will want to be among the first to try our Warm Love pumpkin exfoliating masque. We are offering an awesome introductory special – check out our Specials page to check it out. I can’t wait to hear what you have to say about the newest member of our product line, Warm Love!

New Product Coming….

Hi everyone! Recently I had a question from one of my clients:

Hi Val –
Annoying skin problem- clogged pores on the nose. My skin is no longer oily but large pores remain. Any thought to something for the face- kind of like the Rough Love for the body? Congratulations on your new line- you are old enough to know and young enough to care!
Love ya,
Tina

Thanks for your question, Tina!  Many of us who had oily skin when we were younger experience this. Even though your skin is no longer oily, your pore size doesn’t get smaller. As we age the slower rate of exfoliation results in dead skin build-up that actually exaggerates the pore size, in addition to the pore “sagging” a little. Regular use of an exfoliating masque or scrub will definitely help, along with an occasional professional facial. In the fall, Albertini International will be launching a new masque you might like, with pumpkin enzymes.

Hope this new product will help those of you who are having the same issue as Tina. Don’t forget to enter our Facebook Simply Divine Contest where you can enter to win fabulous Albertini International products! Hope your summer is off to a great start!

The Skinny on Skin

Welcome to my new blog! My name is Valorie Albertini – thanks so much for joining our discussion!

A few years ago as my hormones started to change with menopause, so did my skin, similar to thousands of women my age. For the first time in my life my legs and arms were dry and itchy. Although I shouldn’t have been surprised, I felt as if I just woke up one day with dry skin. Many of my friends and clients were telling me exactly the same thing. My friend Paula said, “I am absolutely certain this wrinkle by the side of my mouth was not there yesterday!!!”

I’ve spent 30 years in the beauty industry, working with clients’ skin and hair problems. For many years I worked for major skin and hair care companies, lecturing all over the world. Most of my focus has been developing and testing skin and hair care products. So, I went to work to solve the skin problem that was irritating me and many others our age.

As we go through menopause we lose our Natural Moisturizing Factor and the ability to hold water in our skin -read more about Menopause and NMF. So I designed a product to help restore that moisture barrier, and Divine skin hydrator was born. It is applied in the shower to help replenish the moisture (water) that your skin has lost. As my friend Mary said, “It is so much easier to apply moisturizer in the shower, than later when I’m having a hot flash. And the great thing is, IT WORKS!!”

Albertini International creates products For Women Old Enough to Know and Young Enough to Care. We still want to look good, but we hate it when beauty companies don’t give us the straight “skinny” on what their products actually do. Our Baby Boomer minds may be a little numb to the fact that we are aging, but nevertheless our skin continues to age. And I promise never to have a 25 year old in an ad tell you about wrinkles!!!

By the way we don’t test on animals. My dog Coco and cat Boots would never allow that! Instead, our friends and customers volunteer to be Albertini International “test bunnies”! If you are interested in working with us as a “test bunny”, testing our future products, keep an eye out in our blog for opportunities. Albertini International products are designed for women who have common sense and a sense of humor!

I’d like to have an open dialogue about your skin problems and what is on your mind. So, why don’t you take a moment, join this discussion and let me know…what is your most annoying skin problem right now???
