Say Buh-Bye to Dry Cracked Feet!

Fashionistas would agree that winter is all about the boots! When the temperature drops ladies run out to buy a new pair of boots to be fashionable and warm. But, there is a negative side to the tall, leather wonders that we zip up every day! Corns and calluses are the often the result. When we stand for hours in hard shoes our feet pay the price. Skin builds up on our heels causing them to become rough and cracked. The best way to prevent this from happening is to thoroughly moisturize your feet and exfoliate them regularly. A few of our favorite products for dry, cracked feet are:Feet

ANSR Sole

A Guide to Enzymes

Published on by

When you think of enzymes think of the game Pacman… yes Pacman! When applied enzymes are like a little Pacman on our face eating away at the dead skin. Scientifically enzymes are large molecules responsible for accelerating biochemical reactions in the body. In skincare enzymes accelerate exfoliation on the top layer of the epidermis. Most skincare products that are geared towards chemical exfoliation use enzymes derived from fruits such as: pineapples, oranges, or apples. These enzymes help to reveal brighter, smoother looking skin and help to improve overall texture. I highly suggest Peter Thomas Roth FirmX Peeling GelPeter Thomas Roth FirmX Peeling Gel. FirmX Peeling Gel visibly rolls, lifts and sweeps away dead skin cells when massaged into skin. Multi-action enzymes (Pineapple, Pomegranate and Keratinase) and Cellulose effectively peel and help uncover a smooth, fresh, new complexion without drying, irritating or causing undue stress to skin. Enzymes will rescue you from your dull skin rut in a flash!

-Removes impurities and decongests clogged pores.

Yes a brightening mask when left on the skin for 3-5 minutes. This cleanser does it all and I highly recommend it for your daily regimen.

Pigmentation Buster

Published on by

If you ask a woman what the biggest problem is that she faces regarding her skin you’ll most likely hear “hyperpigmentation” every time. Hyperpigmentation can be caused by hormones, post inflammatory acne, or sun induced (photo damage) and is one of the most difficult to treat. Hyperpigmentation is hard to treat because the Melanocytes in our skin which produce Melanin haveSkinCeuticals Phloretin CF a great, long lasting memory. Melanin is what pigments our eyes, hair, and skin. So every time melanin is produced by the cell it’s the color of the darker pigmentation. Every 28 days when your cells turn over it is recreating the dark melanin in its memory bank per say.

So I know you’re asking… “What can I do to break this cycle?” The key is to use the right ingredient to change the melanin back to the color they should be. Kojic acid is an awesome ingredient and is derived from fungi. Kojic acid helps to stop the production of melanin in your skin and is a great all natural approach to clearing up pigmentation. Another great ingredient is Ascorbic acid or better known as Vitamin C, this ingredient is rich in antioxidants and is commonly used topically on the skin. This ingredient works by gradually fading the appearance of pigmentation on the skin. Both of these ingredients are very effective and will give you the clear skin you desire.

We highly recommend SkinCeuticals Phloretin CF to help with hyperpigmentation.  Phloretin CF represents a new class of preventive and corrective topical antioxidant treatment. After five years of extensive research, SkinCeuticals developed this patent-pending breakthrough technology combining the newly-discovered, broad-range power of Phloretin with Vitamin C and Ferulic Acid in a biodiverse formulation to divide and conquer sources of damage at every level. Phloretin CF, a broad-spectrum treatment, protects against not only free radicals, but the range of other reactive molecules known to cause damage and DNA mutations among the integral cell types. In addition, it corrects existing damage by stimulating the synthesis of essential proteins and fibers and accelerating cell turnover. The result — a strengthened support structure on the inside and a more youthful, firm, radiant appearance on the outside.
