5 Tips for End of Summer Hot Weather

1) Of course, sunscreen is always a must! Don’t leave home without it. I know everyone says this, but it is true. Don’t skimp.

2) Light weight, fast absorbing products like Striking Multi-Peptide Serum provide instant rehydration to sun parched, wind swept skin. Make sure to apply Multi-Peptide Serum both morning and evening for refreshing revitalization of your skin.

3) Give yourself some stress reduction time – sit in the shade, kick back and start reading a good book. Maybe it’s about London or someplace you want to visit or maybe you just want to read Julie & Julia before you see the movie – but make a habit of spending a few minutes each day just to get away from it all.

4) Hydrate, hydrate hydrate! Summer heat dehydrates you – sometimes before you know it. One indulgence that I just love is TeaZen – it’s concentrated white tea extract – full of antioxidants. The flavors are friendly and it’s easy to add to your water bottle plus it is not too sweet making it perfect for a hot summer’s day.

5) Get a cool, breathable sleepshirt so you can be comfortable. I love the softness of bamboo for dreamy comfort.

Striking Product Mention: What Has Happened to My Decollete?

Eileen Kisailus, owner of Lunar Radiance just started using Striking and wrote about it on her blog, Hot Flashing Thoughts. The post is called What Has Happened to My Decollete? She has been using the Striking Skin Care System and talks about her experience.

Check out her blog Hot Flashing Thoughts and don't forget to check out her website Lunar Radiance that sells sleepwear solutions for night sweats. The sleepwear is designed to help keep skin cool and dry while sleeping through hot flashes. The sleepwear is made with a "wicking" type fabric that helps to pull moisture away from the skin and then evaporates in to the air. This is similar to what athletes have been using for many years.

The product line is suggested for women who are in menopause, perimenopause but also chemotherapy patients and women with thyroid problems can wear these pajamas to help with night sweats. Even women living in warmer climates or during summer months can use these sets to help remain comfortable while sleeping through the night.

How Our Community Got Started

As of August, our Striking Skin Care online boutique is finally up and running. In anticipation of the site going live, the marketing team decided to take matters into their own hands and began networking. We started emailing and posting on Facebook trying to get samples in to the hands of potential customers. Once that took off, we suddenly found ourselves taking orders over the phone and sending samples to friends who called and said, “I love this line so much I want to tell my friends about it. Can you send me some samples and order forms?”

We love the social media and grassroots marketing combination. We have watched it work and continue to dig deeper into this new territory. We have added Twitter and YouTube as well as this blog to our mix. Join us on our journey as we start to grow.

What is Striking?

Striking Skin Care is a new skin care line marketed to women over 40. We know fine lines, wrinkles and loss of firmness are a concern for women dealing with changing hormones. As we age, our skin thins and collagen breaks down. Firmness is lessened and wrinkles start to develop appearing gradually over time. Skin can appear dull and less radiant than before.

There are three SmartPeptides™ that are used in the Striking Skin Care product line. Each of them has been added to provide visible results for the user. By adding specific peptides to the formulations, targeted concerns can be addressed. Tests have shown that SmartPeptides boost collagen production and migration to support the extracellular matrix. This helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while increasing firmness. Over time, skin feels firmer and supple and looks younger, vibrant and refreshed.

Up until recently, Striking Daily Essentials Travel Kits were only sold on Norm Thompson and Gold Violin websites. We now have our new online boutique up and running where you can learn more about all of our Striking products and our community.
