Personal Microderm Tool Kit

Published on by

When someone has dehydrated, pigmented skin they usually gravitate towards a cream to fix their dry skin woes. And it’s only natural, since moisturizing creams have been around for decades. Exfoliation, on another hand, has increased in popularity in recent years. Any aesthetician knows that if you are looking to make your skin look brighter, smoother and less pigmented then you should exfoliate!

Microdermabrasion sloughs off dead skin cells, induces faster skin cell regeneration and increases blood flow which helps to increase collagen production.

The Personal Microderm Tool is an amazing device that uses gritty disk attachments and vacuum suction to remove a thin layer of dead skin cells. This easy to use device is safe and comfortable for at-home use, so you don’t have to wait at the doctor’s office or shell out big bucks to get professional microdermabrasion results.

After your first PMD session you’ll notice that your skin looks brighter, more even toned, and much smoother. You will also notice that expression lines and enlarged pores are much less visible. Pigmentation and skin discoloration will also be less noticeable, and with continued use sun spots and freckles will become lighter and less prominent. If you have acne or mild burn scars the PMD will also lessen their appearance, depth, and severity.

You can find this amazing product at SkinStore.com!

Eye Oasis

Published on by

The delicate eye area is often one of the first places to show dehydration. A lack of moisture can lead to wrinkled skin aeyeccentuating fines lines. Skin around the eyes is much thinner than other areas of the face, which is why you need a product that is specifically formulated for the eyes.  Here are a few of our must have eye creams for maximum hydration:

SkinCeuticals Eye Balm- A synergistic combination of highly effective, yet gentle phytochemicals rehabilitates mature, aging skin around the delicate eye area. This rich, corrective emollient treatment is specifically formulated to counter the three prime signs of aging— moisture loss, collagen breakdown, and free radical damage. A natural anti-inflammatory is added to reduce the appearance of under-eye puffiness, while a soothing agent derived from the chamomile plant calms irritated skin.

Suki Eye Repair Balm- An intensive, delicate eye treatment salve for all skin types. Formulated with beta carotene, pro-vitamin a (carrot oil), omega oils & fatty acids (evening primrose) & polyphenols (grapeseed). This combination of ingredients helps reduce visible lines & wrinkles, nourishes cells, helps prevent visible signs of aging, loss of firmness, oxidative stress, deep dryness & dehydration. This product is vegan friendly.

Murad Hydro Dynamic Ultimate Eye Moisture- This lightweight gel-cream infuses the delicate eye-area with essential nutrients needed to increase cellular hydration providing firmer, plumper, more youthful-looking skin. Suitable for even those with sensitive eyes.

Vichy Aquilia Thermal Eye Roll On- This lightweight hydrogel combines Vichy Thermal Water, Hyaluronic Acid, Dextran and Escin. This formula hydrates and soothes fragile eye contour tissues. Visibly reduces dark circles, puffiness and dehydration lines around the eye area.

Don’t forget, drinking plenty of water is critical to keep your skin hydrated and nourished!


Dry Winter Skin Woes

Published on by

Dry skin is caused by a lack of moisture in the skin and is often characterized by parched, flaking, tightness, itching and even stinging or burning. Often skin begins to look more mature and fine lines or wrinkles are more pronounced. Dry or dehydrated skin is frequently associated with red or chapped areas of the body such as the lips, cheeks, elbows and knees.

Dry skin can be caused by a variety of reasons including but not limited to lack of essential oils, weakened barrier function, inadequate moisturizing, poor diet, environmental factors or improper cleansing.

To ensure that you are providing your skin with all the proper nutrients to stay well hydrated be sure to moisturize daily with a moisturizer or lotion fit for your skin type. Also, only cleanse twice a day and avoid harsh scrubs or astringent cleansers that can leave the skin feeling exposed. Long exposure to dry or cold temperatures can affect the skin and cause “winter itch”; inflamed, itchy skin associated with exposure to extreme temperatures including excessive indoor heating.

As we age our elastin and collagen products begins to slow and our skin becomes natural more dehydrated. Conversely, in our younger years we experience more oil production but that is necessary to keeping our skin balanced and hydrated.

We suggest that you cleanse the skin in the morning with a gentle cleanser, apply a nonalcoholic or moisturizing toner followed by a moisturizer preferably with a sun protection factor. At night, cleanse the skin with luke warm water, tone again, apply any gels/serums/oils and apply a thick, emollient rich moisturizer to absorb into the skin while you sleep.
