What in the World are AHAS, BHAS and Retinols?

Today we are learning more about alpha hydroxy acids and how they benefit our skin. KOJIC ACID is produced by aspergillus oryzae. This is a filamentous fungus (a mold) used to ferment soybeans. It is well known for it skin-brightening abilities and you will find this in many products that use naturally based ingredients for lightening the skin. It has exfoliating properties but is used with caution on very sensitive skin types. Learn which AHA, BHAS and Retinols will work best for your skin by contacting.

Retinol vs Retin A

Rejuven-A is an excellent retinol product that is easier to use for those people who are sensitive to Retin A (tretinoin). Available by calling Skin Deep 970-250-9249 $59.00

Rejuven-A is an anti-aging treatment formulated with Retinol, CoQ10, collagen stimulating peptides and Vitamins C and E.

Ylang Ylang Essential Oil used to Relax

Ylang Ylang is a wonderful essential oil that I use daily at Skin Deep. It works well when you are feeling nervous or emotionally stressed. Using Ylang Ylang in massage will help recover your equilibrium and will aid in the regulation of your heart rhythm. It will help relax and awaken the body. You may blend it nicely with lavender oil to calm the mind and body.

10 Days Post CO2 Fractional Laser Resurfacing

Day 10 photos of post CO2 Fractional Laser Resurfacing.
My skin is just about back to normal with just a slight amount of redness remaining. The itching is still pushing my every little button, however, this is a good thing and it means the collagen cells are stimulated. On day 10 you can resume wearing makeup. You will still be using a lot of moisturizers on your skin because it feels really dry. You also need to be using your Sanitas Vitamin C Serum or Topical C and Pevonia Stem Cell Treatments on a daily basis. I recommend SPF 50 IS Clinical SPF. Your skin will continue to improve over the next 6 months. The collagen and elastin will increase, your skin will be plumper and tighter. Oh Yes!! This makes the last 10 days worth it. Please contact Skindeepgj.com if you have any questions regarding laser or skin care treatments. #Co2Laser, #Pevonia, #Sanitas, #laser Resurfacing, #laser treatmentspost co2 10

How do I take care of my dry winter skin

Many factors contribute to dry skin in the Winter.

1) Be sure to use tepid water. It is so easy to turn the heat up, but it causes more drying of the skin than any single thing.

2) Exposure to cold and wind. Be sure to wear a good moisturizer and sunscreen. Shield your skin as much as possible with clothing.

3) Eat a diet rich in EFA like salmon or fish oils.

4) Drink more water. It is hard to drink enough water in the winter so try tepid water.

5) Don’t use irritating products on the skin and be sure your facial scrub is a fine jojoba bead in a moisturizing complex.

Apply moisturizer at least twice per day, avoid heavily foaming cleansers and soap and cut down on fragranced products. Fragrance is a well know skin irritant. Hyaluronic Acid is one of my most favorite ingredients to add moisture to very dry skin.
