Quick Moisture for Dehydrated Skin

Published on by

Dehydration is a condition that can affect all skin types. There are both external and internal factors that can lead to dehydration. Common causes are change in climate, pollution, hormonal changes, being on a first name basis with your local baristas…just to name a few.

If you are battling with dehydration, one factor to consider is your current skin care regimen. Are you using the right products for your skin? For example, if you only experience the occasional breakout here and there but you are using an acne cleanser, it may be too aggressive for you and could be stripping too much of your skin’s natural oils. Try switching to a mild cleanser and using a spot treatment instead.

One way to add additional moisture back into your skin is to incorporate a hydrating serum into your current routine.

My personal favorite is the H2O Plus Oasis 24 Hydrating Booster. This oil-free formula absorbs easily into your skin without leaving a heavy or greasy feeling. The Hydrating Booster has time-released moisture to help maintain hydration throughout the day. One quick tip; the product does need to be shaken prior to each use. Also, since I started using the Hydrating Booster I have found that I am using less of my moisturizer each day so I’m saving money!

Strivectin-SD Wrinkle-Fighting Trio Kit

Published on by

Don’t surrender to wrinkles, fight back! StriVectin’s newest Wrinkle-Fighting Trio Kit is your best defense against aging. The set includes a three step plan of attack: StriVectin-SD Instant Retexturizing Scrub (.75 oz), StriVectin-HS Hydro-Thermal Deep Wrinkle Serum (.5 oz), and StriVectin SD Intensive Concentrate for Stretch Marks and Wrinkles.

First, polish and prep your skin for treatment with the Instant Retexturizing Scrub. This scrub cleanses, smoothes and primes the skin for optimal absorption of treatment products. Skin texture is also improved with continued use.

Next, get to the root of the problem with Hydro-Thermal Deep Wrinkle Serum. This heat activated serum travels to the deepest layers of the skin where your wrinkles begin. The serum was developed to penetrate deeply into the skin helping to preserve the integrity of the Dermal Epidermal Junction. Over time the appearance of even the most pronounced wrinkles are lessened.

The final step in defense is StriVectin SD Intensive Concentrate for Stretch Marks and Wrinkles. StriVectin SD is a powerful treatment product and hydrator in one that fights stretch marks and wrinkles. This re-engineered formula has 4x more peptides and patented NIA-114 technology. NIA-114 was discovered in skin cancer prevention research to help rebuild skin layers. StriVectin’s Intensive Concentrate for Stretch Marks and Wrinkles has a proprietary complex of 8% NIA-114 and Peptide Actives which has been clinically proven to improve the appearance of wrinkles and stretch marks in as few as 2-8 weeks. The results speak for themselves!

The new StriVectin-SD Wrinkle Fighting Trio Kit is just in time for spring and a great gift idea for Mother’s Day! Hurry though, quantities are limited. This kit will only be available while supplies last.

Perricone MD

Published on by

Dr.Nicholas Perricone. We’re sure you’ve heard the name before. Dr.Perricone is a renowned clinical and research dermatologist with a medical degree from Yale and three New York Times best-sellers. He is regarded as the father of the Inflammation Theory of Aging, a theory which states that internal inflammation caused by factors such as an improper diet, stress, and hormonal imbalances affect the way the skin ages. He is also the creator of one of the most revolutionary and effective skin care lines on the market.

Dr.Perricone believes that through a three-prong approach, inflammation and the visible signs of aging can be stopped in their tracks. Through diet, nutriceutical dietary supplements, and effective cosmeceuticals visible results can be achieved externally, while overall health and energy are increased and enhanced internally. A healthful diet rich in essential fatty acids, colorful vegetables, and complex carbohydrates will provide the vital foundation for optimum skin health. Additionally, supplements which provide essential antioxidants, amino acids, vitamins and minerals further help to reduce inflammation and enhance the body’s natural defense system against aging. Lastly, essential cosmeceutical products are used externally to help achieve beautiful, glowing skin. Dr. Perricone’s cosmeceutical program includes such compounds as Alpha Lipoic Acid, DMAE, Vitamin C Ester, Tocotrienols, and Phospholipids. Gentle, yet efficient topical ingredients that achieve proven, clinical results.

Perricone MD skin care products will help to prevent, correct, repair, restore, and clarify your skin. Many products in the line target specific concerns (like Perricone MD Cold Plasma Sub-D for firming the neck area, MD Pigment Corrective Topical for lightening hyper pigmentation), while others address a multitude of concerns in one (seemingly magical) treatment product (like Perricone MD Advanced Face Firming Activator – which smoothes texture, plumps out fine lines, tightens, tones, and soothes!)

Invest in Perricone MD products today. We urge you to read one of his best-sellers, visit his blog for amazing free recipe ideas and healthy living advice, and try out his supplements. We’re sure you’ll love your results as much as we love ours.

Very soon we’ll host a really exciting Perricone MD GIVEAWAY on our Facebook page! Don’t forget to ‘like’ us to see the giveaway details! We’ll give away some very special prizes from the amazing Perricone MD line!

Wrinkles 101

Published on by

Let’s talk wrinkles. We all have some type of wrinkle on our skin, but do we know what causes wrinkles, the different types, and most importantly how to diminish the appearance of them? According to the Fitzpatrick scale there are 3 classes of wrinkles: superficial wrinkles, fine-to-moderately deep wrinkles, and fine-to-deep wrinkles. The severity of the wrinkle will determine which treatment option is appropriate for you.

Mark Twain once said “Wrinkles should merely indicate where smiles have been”. In that case we should all be delighted about our wrinkles right? We have earned our laugh lines, battle scars, and wisdom; but now I think we deserve a break for all of our hard work!

There is hope for reducing the appearance of wrinkles, sometimes just by minimally using effective products and/or procedures. You will want to look for products that contain active ingredients to resurface your skin while boosting collagen and elastin. You can start by using a mild exfoliant such as glycolic acid and a topical retinol such as the Skinceuticals Retinol. Ther’es a a .5% for sensitive skin and a 1% for more tolerant or problematic skin. This will help the appearance of uneven skin tone; improve wrinkles and texture while encouraging collagen production.

If your wrinkles are beyond laugh lines and are not as superficial as they were in your 20’s and 30’s you may want to look into alternative treatments to use in conjunction with your anti aging products. Procedures include microdermabrasion, IPL photofacials, injectables, or skin laser resurfacing. You will want to consult your dermatologist for your best treatment options available for your specific concerns.

The key to your success for fighting the signs of aging is prevention. You should limit your sun exposure at all times, and make sure you are always wearing a sunscreen with an SPF30 or higher. You will want to look for a sunscreen with both UVA and UVB protection. UVA rays are the main culprits for premature aging on the skin because they penetrate more deeply, so make sure you are choosing a broad spectrum sunscreen. A good sunscreen to try is the La Roche Posay Anthelios 40 Sunscreen. Wearing a daily sunscreen will help to prevent breakdown on your skin while promoting a healthy glow. Aside from the sun, watch out for the other no no’s such as smoking, poor nutrition, and not hydrating your skin properly.

We are all going to age eventually, but we don’t necessarily need to look our age… right?
