Skin Care Note: Are you wearing Sunscreen today?

May 6, 2013

Do you know that sunscreen is a critical anti-aging product?  Some people still think of sunscreen as a product that we carry to the pool or the beach to help avoid sunburn. True, but come to think of it, sunscreen is the first shield for preventing premature skin damage and even skin cancer from occurring.  Remember, UVA rays cause aging and UVB rays cause burning. As skin professional, I would recommend client to invest in a broad spectrum sunscreen product first, especially if budget is an issue.

 Do you know that sunscreen must be used on a daily basis, no matter what time of the year?  Even though it is winter or the weather is gloomy, sunscreen is a must.  There are still UVA rays coming from the “hidden” sun that are responsible for extrinsic aging.   

If you know that sunscreen must be used on a daily basis, do you use it?  If not, then I suggest you start using it now.  With the latest marketing and labeling of sunscreen, I am sure you may be confused as to which one is the best to use. 

What is SPF? Sun Protecting Factor, a measure of how long a sunscreen will protect skin against sunburn. SPF 15 or higher helps to reduce the risk of premature aging of the skin.  There are many sunscreens in the shelves and you may find a number of ingredients. Sunscreen with zinc oxide gives extensive protection against UVA and UVB rays.

FDA has implemented new rules now on labeling sunscreen.  Talk to you skin care professionals or contact us to know more about sunscreen products.

Skin Care Note: Facial Serums

May 4, 2013

When we hear facial serums, we immediately think of them as “anti-aging” products.  Facial serums are problem solving serums and they treat more than just fine lines and wrinkles. There are several kinds of facial serums:  anti-oxidants, anti-hyperpigmentation, hydrators, strengtheners, soothers, firmers, and oxygen breathers.  There are serums for all skin types but mostly they are formulated to target specific skin types and problems.

Facial serums are clear, lightweight, highly concentrated beauty products formulated to deliver a higher dosage of beneficial ingredients to the skin. Examples:  vitamin C, rosehip oil, ceramides, hyaluronic acid, probiotics, cornflower, honeysuckle flower, cornflower, licorice root, arbutin, peptides and many others.   Some company combines two or more these beneficial ingredients creating their own exclusive proprietary serums.

Contact us to determine which serums are right for you. We have a selection of award winning professional products that offer various kinds of facial serums.  (Bioelements, Dermaquest, PCA Skin Care, Hydropeptides, Mesoestetic, Aminogenesis, Repechage etc.)

March 24, 2013

I am sure you are bombarded with all the old technology out there like Galvanic, Microdermabrasion, steamers, peels, wax and Ultrasonic machines, but what do you really want as customers? Results!!!It’s time to finally get what you want. Although, these other treatments are good, some maybe superficial and doesn’t last very long. Some do not really heal or cure the skin conditions you are looking for, especially if you are not disciplined to do your home care program.

Introducing:  Microphototherapy that gives radiancy all over your face!  It can give you everything those treatments do BUT more by reaching deep down into the skin.  It heals the condition that stay trapped in there and at the same time creates collagen to remove lines and smooth out wrinkles.  It continues to even out skin tone by giving it a wonderful milky creamy look.

The treatment is here, I am just waiting for you to come. Call me or email me.
