Keeping You Informed - Special Announcements, Media Coverage, Marketing Updates
September is National Skin Care Awareness Month
Celebrated by learning new ways to take care of our skin, National Skin Care Awareness Month encourages others to get educated about the best way to care for their skin and its needs. Your skin is the body’s largest organ, so it’s important to take good care of it! It’s also a great time to just treat the skin.
Take this month to educate your clients on how to protect, prevent and correct past and future skin damage. A helpful tip might be to promote your professional treatments and home care by offering a free skin scan using a UV lamp to identify areas of sun damage. Or provide some helpful tips during a facial on how to cleanse the skin properly, then offer a free travel-size cleaner for them to take home and try out.
Here are additional skin care tips to pass along to your clients for skin awareness from the American Academy of Dermatology:
- Determine your skin type. Oily, dry, combination, normal, sensitive… Choose skin care tailored to your skin type.
- Wash your face every day and after exorcising. Use a treatment cleanser best suited to your skin type and lukewarm water. This is an excellent time to get into the habit of washing off any make-up you may be wearing every single night.
- Moisturize daily. Apply lotion or cream while skin is still damp to lock-in moisture. As temperatures drop, skin will have a tendency to become drier.
- Examine your skin regularly for signs of skin cancer. Look for new or unusual spots.
- Protect your skin from damaging UV rays by seeking shade, wearing protective clothing and wearing broad spectrum SPF of 30 or higher. Just because it’s getting colder, doesn’t mean we can’t get burned!
A good AM and PM skin care regimen really doesn’t have to take more than 5 minutes each day. Wash, rinse, dry – apply serums/correctives, moisturize and add SPF for the day. Then just grab your water – yes water - and you’re out the door. Water is an absolute must for glowing skin.
Remind your clients when they care for their skin, they will feel better and more energized overall. Encourage them to give it a try and enjoy September!

Sensitive Skin Can Be a Sensitive Topic!
Shannon Easu, CEO of Rhonda Allison featured in Dermascope Magazine
Watch, THE TREATMENT ROOM: Using Flower Extracts to Rebuild Sensitive Skin, as our own Shannon Esau speaks on sensitive skin.

Cactus - Don’t be Fooled by Its Prickly Nature!
Did you know that cactus is being hailed as one of 2019’s most exciting ingredients in beauty right now? Dermatologists have even confirmed that the use of cactus extract on the skin is highly beneficial - a natural ingredient aestheticians have been using in the treatment room for years.
The prickly plant’s ability to survive in harsh climates also happens to be what makes it such a great hydrator. Cacti are flowering plants with an amazing ability to conserve water because of the arid environments they grow in and deliver superior hydration due to their high content of water-binding compounds. They even contain more vitamins, minerals and antioxidants than the very popular Argan Oil.
Cactus in general:
- Controls oil while keeping skin hydrated
- Absorbs quickly into skin without blocking pores
- Comprises 17 amino acids (8 of which are essential), antioxidants and flavonoids
- Stimulates healthy cell production and turnover
- Provides protection and helps skin retain moisture using vitamin E
- Soothes, hydrates and reduces inflammation that damages collagen
- A natural source of electrolytes and minerals
So put some cactus on your face – it won’t hurt, we promise! The earthy essence of Rhonda Allison’s Cacti Flower Mask is a mineral mud fusion that will take your clients’ skin to a whole new level. The natural exfoliating action of purified oligosaccharides reduces cellular cohesion for smoother, softer skin while vitamins, minerals and amino acids fortify the skin for added strength and hydration.
With the additional benefits from Smithsonite to reduce cellular stress and Kaolin to draw out impurities in the skin, Cacti Flower Mask is the perfect treatment to balance, detoxify and invigorate skin while refining pores. Great for most skin types, it is especially beneficial for more oily, problematic, thicker skin types.
Cacti Flower Mask is available in backbar only!
What you should know about Niacinamide!
Excerpts from Skin Inc., July 2019 by Rachel Grabenhofer and Katie Anderson
Niacinamide, also known as B3 and commonly found in foods such as yeast, meat, fish, milk, eggs, green vegetables and grains, can also be created by dietary niacin in the body. A multifunctional vitamin, its key role in the body is to convert sugars and fats into cell energy; however, since it is water-soluble, it is not stored by the body and must be ingested. Niacinamide is considered an important part of coenzymes which play an important part in maintaining healthy skin function where topical application will actually enhance skin barrier function.
Benefits to the skin include:
- Reduction in TEWL & Melanosome Transfer
- Increase in Collagen Production & Smoother Skin
- Decrease in Inflammation, Redness and Irritations
- Diminishment in Pore Size & Sebum Production
- Improvement in Elasticity & Hydration
When it comes to professional skincare products, niacinamide has long been a star ingredient with benefits for acne, aging and dry skin in such Rhonda Allison products as Mandelic Perfecting Polish, Blemish Serum, Blushed Wine Gel, ChronoPeptide A, and more recently, B3 Booster - a powdered blend of vitamin B3, beta glucans and cornflower extract to heal problematic skin, reduce the risk of scarring, inflammation and pore size and overall provide a more youthful appearance to the skin.
