What is your skin like? Like millions of people I would say I have a combination skin. My t-zone is oily (especially in the warmer months), and the rest of my skin is normal. I have to watch what I use on my face because I do break out easily.
Skin concerns: I try my best to keep my skin clear and use preventative products. My forehead can get very oily and I get the occasional break out.
I use this cleanser once a day to keep my break outs away. The combination of salicylic acid and glycolic acid helps prevent\treat breakouts, unclog pores and remove black heads without over drying or irritating my skin.
If your anything you like me you hate the feel of sunscreen but you know it’s necessary. This product gives you the protection you need, yet it is tinted so it makes your complexion look wonderful. I will not leave the house without it on!
Can bacteria be good for beauty? Yes! Probiotics are another weapon in the arsenal for great skin. These tiny warriors can help to clear up acne by preventing inflammation and infection. They can also help alleviate eczema by assisting in oxygen release, blood flow and better skin breathing. Who would have thought that microbiology could have such a macro effect?
Topical probiotics can also slow down the aging process by improving moisturization, stimulating cell function and regenerating mature skin cells. All of this leads to a softer, smoother complexion. Bioelements Probiotic Anti-Aging Serum helps to strengthen the skin’s natural barrier protection.

With all our hands do on daily basis it is so important to give your hands a hand. Washing dishes, gardening, typing, and any other prehensile manipulation can leave the hands feeling rough and dry. Hands can suffer from a loss of volume, the skin becomes thin and loose. The brightness can disappear and discolorations set in.
With so many ingredients and buzz words in skin care it can be hard to keep up. But don’t fret because we are going to keep you in the know by defining peptides.
Peptides are naturally occurring chemical messengers, each one instructs the skin to behave in a certain manner. Some peptides can reduce the signs of aging by increasing collagen production, which will firm the skin from the inside. Other peptides send the message for the skin to “relax” and the result is wrinkle reduction.
Peter Thomas Roth UnWrinkle has the peptide Tripeptide, synthetic snake venom that temporarily debilitates the muscle, keeping it from contracting and thereby smoothing lines in the wrinkle prone area.

Exfoliate your way to a brighter more even complexion with results you can see and feel! Everyone always loves that baby face, fresh and clean feel after they leave their facial appointment. Well now you can have that feeling at home. Formulated with microbeads, fruit enzymes and salicylic acid, the Kate Somerville ExfoliKate Intensive Exfoliating Treatment will leave you with healthier looking skin after just one treatment! It became a personal favorite of mine after the first use. It’s best used once or twice each week, morning or evening, to keep skin radiant. Apply a thin, even layer to a clean, wet face, massaging in a circular motion for 30 seconds. Leave on for up to two minutes. Rinse off with warm water and gently pat dry and experience the results! This product does increase circulation which can cause the skin to flush for a short time. If you have sensitive skin it is best to leave it on for less than a minute or use the ExfoliKate Gentle Exfoliating Treatment. And for those with a problematic skin type, we highly recommend the ExfoliKate Acne Clearing Exfoliating Treatment to give you that glow, while targeting blemishes and helping to prevent new breakouts.
Tip from Kate Somerville: Use ExfoliKate in the shower as the steam will help to activate the enzymes, making it even more effective.
