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…]

7 Tips to Prevent and Treat Dry Skin

Winter winds is a major factor for dry skin. Dry skin seems to increase in the windy, cold months of the year. If you are using products on your skin that don’t protect its layer of natural oils, or are not cleansing and exfoliating often enough, your skin will show it. Dry, flaky, itchy skin can be prevented and you can also help it heal with a few steps:

1. Use warm water, not hot, to wash / bathe in – hot water opens the pores, promoting loss of natural moisture. [Read more…]

How to Keep Your Chin and Neck from Sagging

Healthy NeckOur face is not the only place we show our age, yet it is the one part of our body that we focus the most attention on. On the opposite end of the attention spectrum tends to be our neck. We’ve all seen her, the woman with the beautiful face and the wrinkled neck. She looks younger than her actual age, until you glance down. Don’t let your neck age you before your time … don’t neglect your neck!

The skin on our neck is often the most exposed part of our skin. No matter how good we are at covering up or applying sunscreen, often times, the sun’s unrelenting rays still reach our neck. As a result, lines and wrinkles tend to show earlier on our neck and décolleté, sometimes as soon as age 30. [Read more…]

What Do You Do If You’ve Over Exfoliated?

As you age, your rate of dead skin cell turnover slows down and your skin thins. Exfoliation is a must, to keep those dead skin cells moving, providing better absorption of your moisturizers and nutrient serums. At the same time you are walking a fine line of balancing the right amount of exfoliation while protecting your skin’s protective barrier covering.

Mechanical exfoliation is achieved through substances such as walnut shell, sea salts or other forms of “grit” that will massage or rub the dead skin cells off. Chemical exfoliation is accomplished through an acid or a combination of acids that reduce the skin’s pH enough to remove the “glue” that holds the dead skin cell to the skin’s surface.

Overuse of either or both, together with fragile skin, or a sensitive skin condition such as eczema or rosacea, can set your skin up for signs of irritation and inflammation as well as redness, itching, swelling, scabbing, infection and scarring. [Read more…]
