3 Ways to Get Rid of Old, Dead Skin from Your Face

It’s a fact that as we age, our body’s ability to move along old, dead skin cells slows down. I have three different ways – and products – you can use to exfoliate your skin, so moisturizers can better absorb, doing their job more completely, instead of sitting on the top of your skin, giving you partial results.

Should I scrub, peel or masque?

If you think your skin is too sensitive for an exfoliating scrub, peel or masque, think again. Exfoliation has benefits for every skin type.

Why Exfoliate?
Exfoliation removes dead skin cells from pores, revealing fresh skin cells and making the pores appear smaller. Not only will your skin look fresh and smooth, but your makeup will also look better. And once the build-up is removed, your skin’s ability to absorb everything that follows, from acne treatments to your anti-aging regimen, is enhanced. [Read more…]

Ultrasonic Wave Therapy

More often I’m reading about ultrasonic wave therapy used in skin care treatments, mostly as an anti-aging treatment. Turns out there are some excellent benefits from regular treatments with ultrasonic waves. Just what is it?

Ultrasound wave technology uses sound waves that are greater than the upper limit of human hearing. These waves generate approximately 5 million vibrations per second and generate heat that raises the skin temperature by 0.5 – 1.0°C, benefiting skin by: [Read more…]

Infrared Light Therapy for Clearer, Sharper Thinking?

I’ve been using Far Infrared Light three to four times a week for the past five years now, together with three other therapies, to give me a non-sugical facelift. I really love my results, and have been reading with great interest about research on additional uses for far infrared light. Knowing it has a positive effect on wound healing and tissue regeneration of the skin, there are now studies looking at deeper light therapy, particularly into the brain, with positive findings.

We’re starting to use it on the brain.” [Read more…]

Why Acetyl Octapeptide-3 is Better Than Injectables

I don’t use facial injectables as part of my beauty regimen, so when I have a chance to observe, fairly up close, someone who does, it interests me. I like to watch how her facial muscles contract, or not, how her emotions are expressed on her face matching the varying tones of her conversation, then try to guess which areas the formulas have been injected. I wonder if prolonged use of injectables does long term damage to the nerves, muscles and circulation within the tissues. I also wonder if the tissue “stretches” to accommodate the added volume, and if over time and with loss of collagen and elastin, will the area require more filler to keep it up, and if the tissue will eventually sag even more.

Someone I observed recently, was seated next to me at a luncheon. As we were chatting, I thought to myself back to the last time we had chatted, which was over a year ago. Then I thought she looked different, which was when it dawned on me she had had some cosmetic support as I noticed her forehead not moving and very little facial movement during the course of our hour long conversation. If I hadn’t honed in on her facial movement, or lack thereof, I would have left thinking how youthful and beautiful she looked. And she really did look lovely.

Should You Use Galvanic/Microcurrent After a Salicylic Acid Peel?

20EX Acid Peel

Salicylic Acid peels are great for getting rid of old skin and sebum debris that clog the inside of your pores. Being a Beta Hydroxy Acid, Salicylic Acid is oil soluble, meaning that it can “eat” through the oils on your skin’s surface, and penetrate into the pore to loosen up the dirt the plugs up the pore which cause blackheads and pimples.

Microcurrent / Galvanic ion exchange, is the use of electric current to “push in” the ingredients of the topically applied conducting serum, and “pull out” impurities and dead skin cells. Usually, after a Microcurrent treatment, you will find bits of old skin debris on your skin’s surface. (I use a home beauty gadget that has galvanic/ultrasound/far infrared light/ micromassage) [Read more…]

What to do for Blotches of Hyperpigmentation?

HyperpigmentationMy sweet manicurist shared her newly developed area of darker skin, or hyperpigmentation, on her upper lip. I don’t think a “skin mustache” was what she was actually looking to sport as a young, gorgeous, single gal. Would you like one? Didn’t think so.

Let’s talk about hyperpigmentation when it is in a larger patch on the face, also known as melasma. Melasma usually develops as a result of increased melanocyte production, caused by fluctuations in hormones, or stimulated by sun exposure. [Read more…]
