Breathe New Life Into Dehydrated Skin

We are all born with perfect skin. As time passes, the fully oxygenated outer layer of skin we are born with shows signs of wear and tear. By the age of 25, there is already a significant decline in skin’s oxygen level, up to 40%.

Why is oxygen so important to skin? It is an essential molecule for hydration. It provides cells with the water and energy needed to produce collagen fibers and elastin, which help to repair the skin. Most skincare products that claim to be formulated with oxygen are actually just pumped with air in order to create a fluffy consistency. Karin Herzog is the only brand to be formulated with patented “active oxygen,” which actually creates additional skin moisture.

The revolutionary Karin Herzog Oxygen Body was developed utilizing the brand’s patented active oxygen technology. This dual action body moisturizer provides deep hydration and gentle exfoliation in one treatment. Containing 1% active oxygen and mild fruit acids, Oxygen Body effectively removes dull skin cells while hydrating, softening and toning the skin.

We love that all Karin Herzog products are cruelty free. The brand does not test on animals and no animal extracts appear in their products. All Karin Herzog products are non-comedogenic. This body cream is a great product and improves the texture of your skin.
Though we do not fully  understand how some of the products work and how they are able to oxygenate skin but when you apply the product you will be shocked to see your skin white! You can't wipe it off, wash it off..it is in your skin. Proof that our skin is being oxgenated The whitening effect lasts 30-45 minutes. 
The 1% body cream is really great. Spreading a thin film of this cream all over your body will result in soft skin. 

" Active oxygen in Karin Herzog products immediately change from the liquid to gaseous form once coming in contact with the skin. It is important to not apply the product to your hands. Instead, apply to the desired part of skin, or activation will only take place on your hands. "

How to use:
1) Apply product to Karin Herzog brush or directly onto desired skin location
2) Using brush or light touch of hand, gently smooth product over desired location without massaging or rubbing in. A thin layer of product should be left on skin as it will be absorbed. 
3) Allow a few minutes for product activation to take place. Depending on the level of oxygenation, you may notice a slight bubbling or tingling feeling, this is totally normal. 
4) Wipe away any excess product from skin. You may notice skin has become lighter or cooler to the touch, again this is normal. Each oxygen molecule is bonding with hydrogen molecules under your skin, creating water and hydrating your skin from within. The light color will dissipate momentarily.

The Karin Herzog Skin Care product line is outstanding and essential to putting your skin into the best possible state.

Beautiful Skin Made Simple

We all have experienced having little to no time to get ready before an early morning class or before work. We've all experienced post work, when you wish you had enough time to give yourself an at home facial and were just too tired from the long day. Now, you can cleanse, exfoliate and hydrate skin with one advanced product.

Combining the best of science and beauty, the Cleanser and Exfoliator from Scalisi Skincare thoroughly cleanses the skin without stripping away moisture. This 2-in-1 daily cleanser and exfoliator features tiny micro-beads to gently exfoliate dead skin cells, allowing new cells to surface. The paraben-free Cleanser and Exfoliator is formulated with jojoba, macadamia nut and sunflower oils to moisturize, while time released vitamins A, C and E nourish skin and help provide antioxidant protection. Scalisi Skincare’s Cleanser and Exfoliator is gentle enough to use daily on normal to oily skin.

How to Use:

Wet your face, and massage a quarter-size amount into your skin using small circular motions. Rinse with warm water.

We love that this is a multi-tasking product. It cleanses, takes off make up, and smoothes skin with gentle exfoliators. It even removes hard-to-remove eye make up. Just be sure to not scrub the product on harshly, but apply gently.
A little product goes a long way! the Cleanser and Exfoliator retails for $25 and is available online via www.scalisiskincare.com.
We love how this product is gentle on skin, but effective to get rid of flaky skin while moisturizing your skin at the same time.
We love the microbeads and how they gently exfoliate your skin while leaving skin clean and refreshed.It is gentle enough to be used daily on normal to oily skin.

HairMax for den•si•ty Shampoo


"Thinning hair… a receding hairline… are either familiar sights you see the man in your life struggling with?

From the guy next door, to royals and movie stars, the battle with a balding head is a fight every man fears."

“Hair loss can start as early as your 20s and 30s and many men don’t even notice it until they’ve lost 50% or more of their hair,” explains NYC Plastic Surgeon Dr. Halaas. Prince William and Jude Law are noteworthy cases often highlighted for their thinning tresses and even Captain America himself, Chris Evans, has revealed concern for his receding hairline.

The best way to treat hair loss is to prevent it, like flossing to prevent cavities or wearing sunscreen to prevent wrinkles. Help your man maintain that youthful coif with four simple tips:

Keep Follicles Active : HairMax has a LaserComb that is an at-home laser that can energize follicles and prevent hair loss in minutes by using it 3x per week. Their lasercomb is FDA approved and clinically proven to work.  
Cleanse & Condition : Have a healthy scalp. HairMax has their den•si•ty collection that prevents build-up of sebum on the scalp,allowing new hair to grow. Their collection is scientifically formulated to revitalize and fortify hair follicles. .
Eat a Well-Balanced Diet : What you put inside, will show outside! Eating a healthy diet consisting of lean proteins, healthy fats, and fruits and vegetables will give you healthier, thicker hair. HairMax has their Essential Dietary Supplements that will give you vitamins to promote healthier and thicker hair.  
Double Your Efforts : There is a topical treatment called Minoxidil that is FDA approved to regrow hair. It can be used alone or with the HairMax Laser comb. 


HairMax is an established leader in Hair Growth, Care, and Science. They have a collection and are experts in the development of advanced hair loss treatments and hair growth products. 
Their  den•si•ty collection is designed to cleanse, restore, revitalize and fortify your hair follicles resulting in denser, thicker and fuller looking hair. 

Their collection includes a sulfate-free Shampoo and Conditioner that gently exfoliated the scalp and restores vitality, thickness and volume. They also have Revitalize, a treatment that helps unclog hair follicles and an Activator serum spray that nourishes the scalp and encourages naturally thicker and stronger hair. They can be used separately or together to ensure the maximum results. These products are formulated to work synergistically with the HairMax Laser Comb to strengthen weakening hair follicles. 


HairMax for den•si•ty Shampoo– FORTIFIES AND REVITALIZES 
This powerful yet gentle shampoo cleanses your hair without the harsh effects of sulfates that strip essential oils. The lower pH, purifying formula gently exfoliates your scalp and removes the build-up of sebum, styling products and environmental pollutants. Infused with a synergistic blend of DHT blockers, anti-oxidants and therapeutic botanicals to restore balance, optimize scalp health and enhance the vitality, thickness and volume of your hair.
• Sulfate-free
• Formulated with 3 DHT Blockers, Anti-Oxidants & Vasodilators 
• Lower pH formula for gentle exfoliation and to strengthen the scalp’s natural protective barrier
• Safe for color and chemically treated hair
We really like how there is a luxurious lather to this product. It is soothing and great for a sensitive scalp and hair feels softer and looks full and thick. There is shine and with ingredients of tea tree and peppermint oil, your scalp will feel refreshed on the very first day. 
We really love how clean your scalp feels after a few days of use! Unlike other shampoos that claim to clean the scalp only to leave hair dry, this one does not. It is also safe to use on chemically treated hair, and we highly recommend this product!
