The Truth About Retinol

Published on by

A retinol based product can be found in almost every beauty line available and it easy to see why. Retinol, or vitamin shutterstock_21728725A, has the ability to increase collagen production. It can be used to treat a range of skin conditions from acne to visible signs of aging.

Retinol gently exfoliates the skin, removing dead skin from the surface and helping reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, scarring and dark spots. Retinol is a great addition to any skincare routine for many skin types but be aware you should allow 4-6 weeks for results to show noticeable and lasting results.

As many consumers are aware, the largest downside of retinol products is increased photo sensitivity. Because the retinol acts as an exfoliant, it exposes skin to environmental elements. It is proven that retinol does increases risk of sunburn but not an increase in development of skin cancer. It is high recommended that consumers stop tanning in UVB tanning beds while using retinol products. Users who are cautious of sun exposure or know they may be exposed can mix their retinol products with an SPF product or restrict their usage primarily at night.

Typical side effects include redness and photosensitivity. Overuse of Retinoid can cause peeling, shedding or excess dryness so it suggested that users limit their use to 3 times a week until the symptoms subside. Stop using retinol based products if skin becomes irritated, itches or burns. Active ingredients like retinol or other acids can cause activity like a light tingling sensation but should never burn. This said vitamin A or retinol products are not recommended for pregnant women or clients with skin conditions like Eczema and/or Rosacea.

Like any skincare product, if used correctly retinol can offer amazing results. Some of our retinol favorites include SkinCeuticals Retinol 0.5 or SkinCeuticals Retinol 1.0 for expereinced retinol users and SkinMedica Retinol Complex 1.0 .

The Benefits of Rose for Your Skin

Published on by

Roses have long been admired for their enchanting beauty and fragrance. However they have many more benefits than their Roselooks alone. Rose oil has been used for centuries in skincare and is suitable for all skin types.

Rose oil is most beneficial for individuals with sensitive, dry or aging skin. It aides in reducing redness, boosting circulation, increasing elasticity, strengthening capillary walls and provides an astringent effect. Some of the most popular roses used in skincare are Musk rose, Damask rose, Dog rose, and French rose. The benefits of the rose are numerous and it comes with a costly price tag. In order to extract just one drop of rose oil it takes approximately 30 roses!

Some of our favorite Rose products are:

Hot Ingredient! Resveratrol

Published on by

Resveratrol is the hot new ingredient in the beauty world! Lately, the skin scene is a buzz with new treatments using the powerful phenol. Resveratrol is found in the skin of red grapes among other fruits. The content of resveratrol is increased when fermented which causes red wine to be the most potent source. Although, there is no documented proof that Resveratrol has any effect on cardiovascular disease, cancer or metabolism; it has been proven that Resveratrol can aid with skin protection. Since oxidative stress caused by multiple factors is a major factor in aging, Resveratrol is widely sought after for its antioxidant properties. Although this is no fountain of youth, if you are looking to try this new ingredient, here are a few of our favorites:

1. Topix Replenix Power of Three Cream: Replenix Power of Three Cream and Serum contain 90% Green Tea Polyphenols, Resveratrol and Caffeine U.S.P.

Replenix Power of Three Cream is an emollient with a soy phospholipid and hyaluronic acid base, while the Power of Three Serum is a lightweight, fast-absorbing formulation in a hyaluronic acid (humectant) base. Patients can choose the formulation based on their own skin type and preferences.

The majority of patients can experience the benefits of green tea, making this a welcome addition to the practice. Oily skinned and acne patients tend to prefer the serum, while dry skinned and more mature patients prefer the cream.

2. SkinCeuticals Resveratrol B E: With age and ongoing aggression, skin accumulates excessive free radical damage and loses its efficiency to effectively repair at night. This compounded effect leads to accelerated signs of damage such of loss of radiance, elasticity, and density.

This antioxidant night concentrate with a maximized concentration of 1% pure, stable Resveratrol, synergistically enhanced with 0.5% Baicalin and 1% Alpha Tocopherol (vitamin E) boosts skin’s own antioxidant defense system to promote its natural nightly repair for improved radiance, elasticity, and density.

3. Arcona Wine Hydrating Mask: This moisture binding mask helps to nourish skin while stimulating cellular renewal, reducing wrinkles, firming and smoothing. Leaves skin feeling supple, soothed and balanced.

Revamp Your Skincare Routine with Dr. Dennis Gross

Published on by

Spring is finally here! If you haven’t already, it’s time to start transitioning your skincare routine. If you find that it’s a challenge to select just the right regimen for your skin, you’re not alone. Skin can be very unpredictable — some days you’re more blemish-prone and oily, some days your skin is dry, and to top it all off, your skin has targeted zones that have their own issues (enlarged pores on the t-zone, rough cheeks, dull overall complexion).

Enter Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare™ Clinical Concentrate Boosters. These three water-free super serums — Radiance, Hydration, and Purifying — were formulated by the doctor with the goal of perfectly balanced skin in mind. Dr. Dennis Gross Clinical Cocktail Concentrates Kit

• Radiance: helps transform dull skin into a younger-looking, glowing, luminous complexion (featuring Linoleic, Pyruvic, Tartaric, and Glycolic Acids, Retinol, and Quercetin)

• Hydration: helps infuse and seal deep moisture for firmer, softer, smoother-looking skin (with Hyaluronic Chronospheres, Watermelon Extract, and Centella Asiatica)

• Purifying: helps tone and control excess oil; tightens pores for increased clarity (including Willow Bark Extract, Witch Hazel, Lactic Acid)

While you can use them like traditional serums and apply them directly to specific facial zones, the real magic happens when you start mixing your own custom cocktail. After all, if your skin has different needs, why would you treat it the same way every day? Each booster can be mixed into your favorite skincare and makeup products to take their benefits to the next level. That means any existing product you have — moisturizer, foundation, cleanser, anything! — can be totally transformed for your skin’s daily needs. What will you mix with your Clinical Concentrate Boosters?
