The Janesce Re-Energising Range enlivens mature skin through highly active botanical stimulation.

We are so excited to announce the launch of the Janesce Re-Energising Range for women aged 45+.

The Janesce Solutions Re-Energising Range contains, on average, double the level of plant extracts found within the rest of the Janesce Professionals range.

At the heart of the range is the existing Janesce Re-Energising Complex, which Jan Smith (founder of Janesce Skincare) created to enliven and energise my skin when I turned 50.

Jan Smith has now designed four new products to create the extremely potent Re-Energising Range. This powerful range series enlivens mature skin through highly active botanical stimulation. 

Think of it as Janesce, on steroids!

We will release one new product each season throughout 2019. The Janesce Re-Energising Skin Dew is out now.

The Janesce Re-Energising and Renew Cream has just been released.

The Pinnacle of Jan’s Creations

From my perspective, the Re-Energising Range is the pinnacle of Jan’s creations so far. Now in her late 80s, Jan is throwing the budget out the window and adding in all the plant tinctures her heart desires at VERY high concentrations.

When Jan emailed me about this range she said “I have total focus on them being THE BEST EVER!”

When Jan uses caps, she means serious business.

Featured Botanical Ingredients

The botanical theme of the Re-Energising range story is the energising blend of gingko, ginseng and myrrh. This trio offers powerful plant actives to stimulate and enliven maturing skin, slow the visible signs of ageing and support the continuation of a youthful Janesce glow throughout hormonal changes.

Gingko is rich in antioxidants, which neutralise free radicals that cause wrinkles and other signs of ageing. It also has strong anti-inflammatory properties and helps protect the skin against UV damage.

Ginseng contains numerous phytonutrients that increase skin cell oxygenation and boost circulation for brighter, more evenly toned skin. It also has anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties and forms a protective film over the skin.

Myrrh encourages gentle microcirculation to stimulate mature skin. It is a natural antiseptic, preventing infections and promoting healing. Anti-inflammatory and powerfully anti-oxidant, it helps to combat oxidative damage.

In addition the range features liquid oxygen, liquid silk, lavender, rose, sage, chamomile, and viola tricolor – a beautifully feminine, powerful alchemy of energising botanicals.

Key Features of Janesce Re-Energising Range

  • Very potent range for women 45+ to re-energise and renew maturing skin.
  • Enlivens mature skin through highly active botanical stimulation.
  • Contains double the plant actives of the Janesce professional ranges.
  • Only suitable for existing Janesce clients, too stimulating for beginners.
  • Five products supply beautiful layers of botanical energy.
  • Hero botanical ingredients are gingko, ginseng and myrrh.
  • Anti-inflammatory and anti-ageing with potent anti-oxidants.
  • Stimulates blood flow and cell renewal.
  • Awakens sluggish skin.
  • Naturally offsets hormonal deprivation and promotes youthful, supple skin.

Who Is this Range Suitable For?

The Re-Energising Range brings ageing skin back to life. It supports blood flow and cell renewal and helps to offset hormonal deprivations and support a youthful, Janesce glow as we age.

Because this range is so powerful and active, it would be prudent to prescribe these products only to clients with mature skin who have been using Janesce for some time. Only a dedicated Janesce client will have skin strong enough to benefit from these high levels of actives without overstimulating the skin.

How to Prescribe

The Janesce Re-Energising Complex is the hero of the range and the other four products provide complementary botanical layering to energise and stimulate mature skin.

The Janesce Re-Energising Complex and Janesce Re-energising Skin Dew are the first two layers in this skincare regime and we recommend you prescribe the two products together. Then lock it in with the Janesce Re-Energising and Renew Cream.

Don’t forget that you also have the Janesce Re-Energising Tincture available in your clinic products. This tincture can be added to your Facial Base Mask to create a Re-Energising facial treatment. You may like to do this to celebrate the launch of the range and start conversations about the new products.

Feedback from Christine Terry | Soak Beauty

“I think this the Janesce Re-Energising Range is a game-changing range and its value is easily justified by the ingredients and level of actives that Jan has been quite ‘cavalier’ in using. Good on her for throwing out the budget! She has always been so mindful of the end user regarding the budget, but I believe some mature clients will be happy to pay a higher price for such a premium product. I can’t believe how different my skin looks. I think this takes the intelligence of the Janesce range to a new level, which is so exciting.”

Who is the Janesce Re-Energising Skin Dew suitable for?

This energising and hydrating botanical mist is designed for woman aged 45 and over. Because the Janesce Re-Energising Range is so potent, it is wise to prescribe these products to clients who have been using Janesce for some time. Only dedicated Janesce users will have skin strong enough to benefit from the high levels of plant actives without overstimulating the skin.

How to Prescribe

The Janesce Re-Energising Complex is the hero of the Re-Energising Range and the other four products provide complementary botanical layering to energise and stimulate mature skin.

We recommend that you prescribe the Janesce Re-Energising Skin Dew and the Janesce Re-energising Complex together. The remaining three products from the range will be released throughout 2019.  As they come available, you can add these products into your clients’ skincare regime to build beautiful layers of energising botanicals.

How to Use

You can apply the Janesce Re-Energising Dew to the skin in one of two ways:

  1. Spray 1-2 sprays of the dew directly onto the skin.
  2. Spray two pumps of the dew into mist into the palm of one hand, press hands together and gently press the mist into face.

Where does this product fit in the Janesce skin soaking routine?

The Janesce Re-Energising Dew contains botanical extracts to treat the skin and plant proteins that seal in moisture. For this reason, apply after skin-soaking. It can be applied either before or after the Re-Energising Complex, depending on how strong the skin in.

If the skin barrier is strong, it will benefit from having the Janesce Re-Energising Complex applied first, as it contains the highest amount of plant actives in the range.

If the skin barrier is sensitive, apply the Janesce Re-Energising Dew first to buffer the skin and protect it from being overstimulated from the high levels of plant actives in the Re-energising Complex.

The Skin-Gut-Brain-Diet Connection

In my 20 years as a holistic skincare therapist, I have come to trust that the nutrition and wellbeing practices we use to bring about skin transformations will eventually be validated by science. This is proving to be true now more than at any other time in my career as our industry enters the wellness era.

Acne is the focus of new scientific research which is overturning old myths and affirming that a holistic approach is necessary for effective treatment.

It used to be widely accepted that acne was the result of a genetic tendency for skin sebum to get trapped in the pilosebaceous canal.  However, new research points to multiple triggers for acne including the food we eat, our gut health and even our anxiety levels.

This scientific research is confirming what I have found to be true through two decades of transforming acne through botanical skincare, skin nutrition and well-being wisdom.

Acne is a particularly distressing skin disorder, and I hope this valuable research which explains the connection between skin, diet, gut and brain chemistry will help us all to understand this complex disorder better and treat it more effectively.

THE DIET + ACNE CONNECTION

For many years, acne sufferers were told that the food they ate had no impact on their skin. Sadly, this was not the case!  Studies now show that while diet is not the cause of acne, it can fuel it.  Acne treatment is usually ineffective until the foods that are feeding the acne are removed.

The research highlights two dietary sources which fuel acne – sugar and saturated fat.  A high intake of these food sources changes the composition of the sebum the skin produces, which in turn promotes the colonisation of P acnes. These little-known microbes are a slow growing bacterium that are linked to acne. They are a normal part of the skin microbiome, but in healthy skin, the number of P acnes are so low they are barely detectable.

On the other hand, a diet high in sugar and nasty fats can cause a population surge of these bacteria, resulting in cell damage, protein secretions and bacterial debris that can lead to red, angry, inflamed acne.

Diet Strategies for Treating Acne 

  • Remove processed sugar and saturated fats from diet while treating acne. Common acne-fuelling foods to avoid are: chocolate, cheese, full-cream dairy products, meat-fat, fried foods, chips, protein powders, cashews and peanuts.
  • Nourish skin with a whole-food diet and make some skin-friendly treats to have on hand for when cravings strike.
  • Take a good quality Essential Fatty Acid (EFA) supplement. EFA’s are essential for acne-prone skin as they improve the free-flow quality of the skin sebum, avoiding the formation of blockages and even clearing existing ones.
  • Prescribe skin nutrition boosters to provide foundational nutrients for healthy skin.

 

THE GUT + ACNE CONNECTION

Unhealthy bacteria colonies in the gut and a compromised gut wall can lead to skin inflammation and the development of skin disorders. Studies have shown that 66% of acne sufferers have intestinal permeability (leaky gut) issues and an even higher percentage suffer from constipation. A congested bowel is often reflected in congested skin!

40% of acne sufferers also have low stomach acid and this results in increased populations of harmful microbiota in the gut. These unwanted microbes produce substances that can get into the blood stream. When this happens we rely on the liver to filter them out, but if the liver is overloaded then these toxins will negatively impact the skin.

The skin is the visible sign of what is happening in the whole body. When the gut/digestive system is blocked up and overloaded with harmful microbes, it is often reflected in the  blocked pores and bacteria-laden skin inflammation we call acne.

Gut Strategies for Treating Acne

  • Reduce sugar and processed foods which feed bad bacterial populations in the gut
  • Eat fermented foods such as kombucha, sauerkraut and kefir which feed healthy bacteria populations.
  • Prescribe a fibre-rich, probiotic powder to stimulate elimination, repair the gut wall and increase populations of healthy bacteria in the gut.
  • Take one tablespoon of apple cider vinegar in ½ cup of water before meal to compensate for low stomach acid and improve digestion.

 

THE BRAIN + ACNE CONNECTION

Did you know that it has been shown that acne sufferers are more likely to suffer from depression or anxiety than people with other chronic medical conditions?  There is a two-way conversation between the gut and the brain which has significant implications for the way we treat both acne and anxiety.

Stressful emotions slow down the movement of the gut and increases the time it takes for food to pass through the digestive system. This can negatively impact the gut microbiota which in turn, has a negative impact on the skin as described above.

Conversely, the gut can affect our brain. Our gut bacteria produce neurotransmitters (dopamine, serotonin, substance P and GABA) which have a direct impact on our brain chemistry and mood. A vicious downward cycle can be set in motion with anxiety and depression negatively affecting the gut, resulting in bacteria that in turn contributes to low mood. One thing fuels the other and both fuel the acne.

Brain Strategies for Treating Acne

  • Improve stress resilience with mindfulness and meditation.
  • Every day take 20 deep, slow breaths which will help to condition the body towards the parasympathetic nervous system which is the ‘rest and repair’ mode.
  • Feed a happy brain with a nourishing ‘happy gut’ diet.
  • Build self-care and soul-care rituals into each day to support wellbeing.
  • Develop a daily gratitude practice to direct the conscious and sub-conscious mind towards the positive things in your life.

THE SKIN-GUT-BRAIN CONVERSATION

It’s clear to see that acne is more than a simple skin problem. There is a complex gut-skin-brain conversation that is going on within the body via the metabolites, the neuroendocrine system and central nervous system.

To truly support our clients in their journey to heal their acne, we need to encourage a healthy diet with alternatives to foods that fuel acne, to help them to improve their gut health and to offer them wellness wisdom tools that will support their mental wellbeing and improve their stress resilience. It is a completely holistic approach.

I find it so interesting that 25 years ago my mentor, Janice Smith, said to me, ”Janine, take a good look at your skin disorder clients, they have sensitive skin, a sensitive gut and a sensitive personality. It all goes hand in hand”. It looks like science has proven her holistic instincts and observations right once again!

Simone Rose offers botanical skin therapy and holistic skincare coaching from her tranquil salon in Birkdale, Auckland – Simone Rose Organic Face and Body. She delves deep into her clients’ diet and lifestyle to get to the root of their skin conditions, healing them from within. Bestow Beauty plays an important role in her holistic approach, giving Simone the tools to supplement topical products and lifestyle adjustments with powerful skin nutrition remedies. 

Here is an inspiring case-study of transformation that came about from Simone working closely and compassionately with a client who was struggling with acne.

Simone Rose Soothing Mist

Riding the Emotional Rollercoaster of Clearing Acne

When Louisa first came to see me she was very insecure about her skin and was at an emotionally low ebb.

Her skin was sensitive with extreme congestion and she wanted to heal her skin in a natural way. Louisa was very motivated to repair her skin, doing everything that I asked her to do, from topical skincare to lifestyle and diet changes.

It took six months for Louisa’s skin to clear and at the halfway mark her skin got worse before it got better. The comedones on her face had to turn into full blown pimples before they could heal, which was a learning experience for me as well as a challenging journey for Louisa. While we worked together, I had to not only rely on my knowledge as a holistic beauty therapist, but I had to be sensitive and compassionate, encouraging Louisa every step of the way to keep her moving forward.

A Holistic Skincare Strategy
Topical Approach

Louisa adopted a morning and evening routine using the Janesce botanical skincare range. Each morning she soaked her skin with warm water, sprayed the Soothing Mist, applied a cocktail of Janesce Soothing Mist and Janesce Lavender Oil, and then applied Janesce Suncare lotion to finish. She used the Janesce Rose Cleanser in the evening and then repeated the rest of her morning routine, minus the Suncare lotion.

A few months in, when her comedones turned into pimples, we added the Janesce Gentle Clearing Wash three times a week. The Gentle Clearing Was is great for treating pimples by reducing inflammation and speeding up the healing process. By now her skin was hydrated and stronger, better equipped to cope with this stronger product.

I also gave Louisa an extraction facial treatment every three weeks.

Internals – Diet Changes, Bestow Beauty and Supplements

Louisa kept a food journal which she emailed to me weekly so we could improve her diet and eliminate congesting foods. She swapped peanut and almond butter for tahini, to be used sparingly. She switched from ghee to coconut oil. We cut down her fruit intake, avoiding it completely it the mornings.

Louisa was drinking too much water, so I cut this down and recommended that she remove drinks completely at meal time. Louisa took two tablespoons of Bestow Beauty Plus Oil each day either in porridge, smoothie or salad dressing. She took one tablespoon of Bestow Be Cleansed Powder each day in either her porridge or smoothie. Louisa found the Bestow Savour recipe book a helpful guide on her journey to making nourishing, skin-friendly meals at home.

In terms of supplements, Louisa took Janesce Zinc Repair, B complex vitamin and took one teaspoon of the Janesce Aperitif before each meal.

Lifestyle Changes

Because Louisa was so stressed about her skin, I sent her to a Network Spinal Analysis (NSA) Doctor which is a very gentle but powerful method of chiropractic care that helps your body learn how to better regulate spine and life tensions, creating sustainable improvements in your spinal flexibility, body awareness and overall wellbeing.

Joyous Milestones Along the Way

The first sign we were on the right track was when I extracted a comedone and it came out clean with no extra angry, sticky fluid. The Bestow Oil and B complex were working well to create a healthier sebum. Each facial after that there were fewer and fewer comedones to extract, plus the internals were strengthening Louisa’s skin from within.

Challenges and Setbacks Are Part of the Process

Three months into the journey Louisa’s skin looked worse than at the beginning! I realised every single comedone had to form into a pimple before it went away.

Aware that this setback could be discouraging, I asked Janine Tait to write Louisa a note assuring her she was in good hands. I also spoke to Jenny Barrow about her journey to get rid of congestion and she was kind enough to forward me her before and after photos. It took Jenny eight months to clear her skin and she had to be completely free of all congesting foods to get there.

Armed with these tools I was ready for the very emotional Louisa who turned up at my door and I was able to encourage her to continue her journey.

When Things Get Worse Before They Get Better

Janine Tait knows as well as anyone that when it comes to congestion, skin often has to hit rock bottom before it can improve. By understanding why this happens, therapists can maintain a good relationship with their clients in the face of break-outs.

“With acne and congested skin, there are many open and closed comedones present. Comedones form when sebum thickens and blocks the pore. Because they are not red or inflamed, these comedones fly under the radar of the immune-system’s awareness.

Once you start to repair the skin and it becomes soft and supple with sebum that flows, the body becomes aware of blockages and deals with them through the immune system. One by one each comedone turns into a pimple as the skin purges the congested serum. It’s understandable that your client might freak out as this break-out occurs, but it actually signifies progress!

Once that pimples clears and heals that pore is now ‘free’ for the first time in a long time. You just have to help your client to understand what is going on and support them emotionally as they deal with the challenges of facing the world each day through this break-out stage.”

~ Janine Tait

Louisa Today – A Radiant Woman with Radiant Skin

Today, Louisa’s skin is strong, clear and radiant. She is very happy and turns up to her facial appointments with a big smile. She chats cheerfully right up to the moment I start the massage. Without the worries about her skin, she is strong enough to welcome new and exciting challenges into her life.

From this personal journey, Louisa developed a passion for natural health. She quit her job and has started studying naturopathy – she is so excited about the future!

My Learnings as a Skincare Therapist

This is the first time I’ve experienced congestion that has to turn into a pustule before going away, so it was a real learning experience as a beauty therapist.

This case drove home the importance of a holistic approach: I could never have healed Louisa without looking internally.

I also learnt that skin disorders affect people emotionally, they can make a person feel so insecure that it’s all consuming. Because Louisa was so anxious about her skin, I needed to show deep compassion, while sharing my knowledge and lots of patience.

A Word From Louisa

“After struggling with skin problems for two years and having no success at healing, I am so thankful that I found Simone! I wanted to find a natural way of healing myself and Simone had the answers.

After my initial consultation with Simone I felt so much anxiety lift off my shoulders. She really listened to me and was very understanding about how my skin was affecting me mentally and emotionally. I knew I was in safe and healing hands.

Simone has taught me so much about my skin and how to care for it both internally and externally. She is extremely knowledgeable and her passion for helping and healing others shines through in everything that she does. Simone was there for me every step of the way with support, encouragement and patience.

I get so excited when my next appointment is coming up. Her studio is beautiful and her treatments leave me feeling relaxed and rejuvenated. Simone has a professional, warm and friendly approach and always makes me feel comfortable.”

I love reading case studies from our amazing Janesce Skincare therapists. Hearing about client’s skincare journeys has reminded me of what an emotional rollercoaster it can be treating acne or congestion. Why? Because the skin often gets worse before it gets better! Eeek!

This can seriously challenge the confidence of even the most experienced skin health therapist. And, there is always the danger that it will undermine your client’s trust in you. As her skin gets worse under your care, the question inevitably rises, “does my therapist really know what she is doing?”

I’d like to support you in this process.

By providing education and advance-warning  you can reduce the volatility of the emotional rollercoaster and smooth the acne healing pathway for you and your client.

Firstly, let’s look at the skin science.

Why Does It Get Worse Before It Gets Better?

With acne and congested skin, there are many open and closed comedones present.  Comedones form when sebum thickens and blocks the pore. Because they are not red or inflamed, these comedones fly under the radar of the immune-system’s awareness. It’s as though the body doesn’t even know the comedones are there so it doesn’t expend any effort trying to purge them from the skin.

What Causes Comedones in the First Place?

Comedones will be present due to one or a combination of the following factors:

  1. A genetic sensitivity to congesting foods (like chocolate, cheese, cashews etc.)
  2. An EFA deficiency (EFA’s help produce a free-flowing sebum)
  3. A deficiency in certain B vitamins (B-vitamins must be present for EFA’s to work)
  4. Perspiration drying on the skin (The salts the perspiration contains blocks the pores).
  5. A stripped, dehydrated stratum corneum (The skin lacks flexibility which inhibits the free flow of sebum to the surface of the skin)
  6. The use of comedogenic products (Some make-up products physically block the pores)

Once you address all of the above factors, the skin will stop producing new comedones.

What Happens to the Comedones That Are Already Present?

Well, for some lucky people, they simply disappear!  One minute they are there and the next time you look, they’re gone.  If only that was the case for all of our clients! Unfortunately it is more likely to be one of the following two scenarios that plays out.

  1. Comedones Turn Into Papules and Pustules

Once the skin becomes soft and supple (through topical hydration) and the sebum starts flowing (with the elimination of congesting foods and addition of EFA’s and B Complex), the body becomes aware of blockages and deals with them through the immune system.

One by one each comedone turns into a pimple as the skin purges the congested sebum. It’s common for your client to freak out as this break-out occurs, but it actually signifies progress! Once that pimples clears and heals that pore is now ‘free’ for the first time in a long time. You just have to help your client to understand what is going on and support them emotionally as they deal with the challenges of facing the world each day through this break-out stage.

  1. Comedones Remain as Historical Congestion

Some client’s skins are genetically predisposed to more stubbornly hold onto blockages and the existing comedones continue to sit there as ‘historical congestion’. This can take many months to clear.  In Jenny Barrow’s case, her skin which had been deeply congested for 15 years took eight months to clear – and she did everything we told her perfectly!  In these cases continued commitment, encouragement and patience is required.

Extraction Facials Speed The Process

In both of these situations I cannot over-emphasize the power of extraction facials to speed up the skin-clearing process. This is a far quicker and less distressing way to manage the skin-clearing process than letting nature run its course and produce break-outs.

How to Perform A Skin Healing Extraction Facial

Once your client’s skin is supple with hydration and the sebum has started to soften with dietary intervention, your client will be ready for an extraction facial treatment. This will take a minimum of two weeks of skincare/dietary care and possibly longer.

  • Begin with Janesce Rose Cleanser
  • Soak the skin really well with a warm lavender compress.
  • Massage Janesce Gentle Enzyme Peel into face for five minutes and remove with warm cloth.
  • Apply Janesce Gentle Clearing Wash, gently press it in to the skin with damp hands for leave 5 minutes and remove with warm cloth.
  • If you have a vapozone or steamer, use this to soften the skin further.
  • Prevent the skin from dehydrating with the application of the Rose Petal Mist.
  • Extract comedones using a comedone extractor or two cotton buds. If a comedone proves to be difficult to remove, don’t force it out, as this will damage the skin. Leave it for next time – it’s just not ready yet.
  • Finish your session with a lymphatic-type massage using a cocktail of Soothing Mist and Calendula Concentrate. These two products will leave a fine, healing, protective film on the skin and you won’t need to apply an oil or moisturizer.

Warn Your Client In Advance

It is a really good idea is to warn your client about the possibility that their skin may get worse before it gets better when they first begin their programme with you. With understanding comes acceptances and patience.

Knowing what to expect will help your client to mentally prepare for whatever happens and will make her more emotionally resilient in the face of the inevitable ups and downs that will occur.  If the worst happens, rather than thinking, “does my therapist know what she is doing?,” she will instead think, “ah, my therapist said this might happen, and she was right.”

This will continue to build the confidence and trust that is at the heart of every successful change partnership.

I look forward to hearing about your success stories!
