SKIN DEEP ROSE MIRACLE MAKEOVER

Remember to celebrate the special woman you love and appreciate on Mother’s Day Sunday May 14.

Plan ahead and thank her with a treatment that will speak her love language.

Truly, a gift that is all about her!

Truly, a gift that is all about her! Throughout history, no flower has been as loved or renowned as the rose. Considered as one of the most revered skincare ingredients available, it takes tens of thousands of rose blossoms to yield 1 ounce of rose essential oil. That makes rose oil one of the most expensive essential oils; however only a few drops are necessary to reap the full benefits it has to offer. Fun fact: Rose essential oil has the highest known vibrational frequency, which is why they’re so powerfully purifying and healing for our mind and body. Among all the flowers in the world, Rose has the oldest history with fossilized remains estimated to be over 35 million years old.

SKIN DEEP ROSE MIRACLE MAKEOVER

Experience a calming, healing facial that refines and illuminates skin with a combination of microdermabrasion, purifying clay, skin brightening vitamin C and a “queen flower” essential oil blend of rose absolute, rose geranium, neroli and ylang ylang. A relaxing massage leaves hands, feet and arms soft and hydrated.

Skin Protection and Why We Need SPF

UV Radiation is the primary cause of free radicals in the skin. You have two types that you should be concerned about UVA/UVB.

The UVB rays stand for BURN, you will feel these rays. Unfortunately, one of the most damaging rays UVA you don’t feel. UVA can penetrate through clouds or glass. Riding in your car or sitting by a sunny window will give you damage that you won’t feel. Thus is why most people have more sun damage on the left side of their face, it is exposed next to the window while driving. UVA rays are present year round. You will not see the damage from these rays for several years. They also penetrate the skin 30-40 times deeper than UVB rays.

How do we protect our skin from this type of damage? Choose IS Clinical SPF 50, it is a broad spectrum SPF that protects against UVA/UVB rays. This formula is oil free and vitamin E enriched making it a perfect solution for all skin types especially oily/acne skin.

Be sure to apply your SPF 30 minutes before you go out and saturate your outer part of your skin the epidermis.

When is Medication Necessary for Acne Treatment

When is medication necessary for acne treatment?

This is a common question.   As an esthetician, I try to guide and educate you to understand what your treatment options are available.  A consultation is the perfect way to start this educational process. Many areas will need to be discussed as to your family history, how you care for your skin, diet/exercise, and what type of breakouts  you challenged with.

I like to start with the basics and teach you the #anatomy of your skin and what really causes acne. Many time there are myths associated with acne treatments and I want you to understand the science behind treatment. Commonly, estheticians, work in close relation to other medical providers. It will take a good team to treat all the different components associated with #acne.

Skin surface bacteria is always present but causes no harm as long as it is exposed to oxygen. When bacteria is trapped in the pore, where the environment has little oxygen, the bacteria breaks down the oil glands to free fatty acids. These acids cause inflammation, irritation redness and swelling that lead to pustule formation. If infection with fluid pustules is present, oral antibiotics may be necessary to help provide control and promote healing.

Topical antibiotic lotions also are very effective and sometimes both oral and topical antibiotics are necessary. The skin will usually get worse before it gets better, so it is important to stay the course of the treatment.

When medication is necessary for treatment of acne, tretinoin is a common topical drug  that is used (Retin A);  oral minocycline; a broad-spectrum tetracycline antibiotic in addition to topical clindamycin may be prescribed by your physician. For severe cases  Accutane (isotretinoin) is prescribed.  It is important to use sunscreen and wear a hat to protect your skin during treatment due to photo sensitivity. Sometimes hormone medications such as birth control or hormone replacement therapy’s may also  be suggested. Your physician will guide you on the benefits of each medication.

Keeping the skin balanced and not to dry is very important and this is when the esthetician is most helpful. We perform the extractions to clear the skin and recommend the right topical skin care routine to aid your healing process.

Together your physician and an esthetician will guide you to healthy glowing skin.

What in the world are AHAS BHAS and RETINOLS

This week we are learning about acids that are used on your skin and why in the world would you use them. Yesterday, we learned that glycolic acid is an exfoliant and is used to deliver other ingredients into your skin.

Today, let us look at LACTIC ACID which is derived from milk, fruit, vegetables and some plants. It is a milder form of alpha hydroxy acids and one that is a moisturizing. It is much less irritating to sensitive skin than glycolic because it has a larger molecular structure and penetrates the skin much slower than glycolic. Lactic acid is a natural component of your cells and can stimulate collagen production. Lactic Acid will smooth out the appearance of large pores and lightly improve acne scars. Lactic Acid will also aid your skins barrier function and improve the water barrier properties by increasing ceramides and glycosamino-glycans (natural moisturizers).

You will find LACTIC ACID in many skin care products ranging from light peels, moisturizers, serums and cleansers.
