Learn about the Red, White, and Blue of Skin!
Rosacea is a skin condition that causes redness in the face, most commonly affecting middle-aged women with fair skin. While it is incurable and often controlled by environmental factors, there are a few ways to treat the condition! Medications and oral antibiotics are good options if you see a physician for your rosacea. Topical treatments, like my Triple Shot Serum are also amazing! Triple Shot contains green tea, antioxidants, and resveratrol. These ingredients are extremely soothing, helping with both prevention and treatment of rosacea flare ups.
White: Dry Skin
70% of women have dry or combination skin! Dry skin is a very common skin condition that can easily be treated by a hyaluronic acid treatment. Hyaluronic acid is a sugar that naturally occurs within the skin to retain moisture and maintain collagen synthesis. When applied topically, hyaluronic acid molecules promote moisture penetration and retention by restoring water content to dry skin! Hyaluronic acid holds 1000x its weight in water and is water-based, allowing for intense hydration without making your skin oily! My Hyaluronic Line Filler is an amazing hyaluronic acid serum, fractionated into three different molecular weights to ensure successful penetration into the skin.
Blue: Under Eye Hollows
Under eye hollows are so common, especially as we persist through allergy season. The blue veins underlying your under eye skin can age you and make you appear tired and unrested! A daily allergy pill can help with these blue veins, but the best treatment for this hollowed appearance is under eye filler! Under eye filler can restore volume underneath the eyes to combat the hollowing effect that accompanies age and many nights of insufficient sleep. You will instantly look brighter and more rested!
Brown Spots: Causes and Treatments
Many people suffer from brown spots or some sort of hyper pigmentation, but very few people know that there are different types of brown spots. Keep reading to find out what causes yours!
Age Spots/ Sun Spots: These types of brown spots are caused by prolonged sun exposure. Be sure to wear a sunscreen with at least SPF 50 to help minimize this! My Perfecting Sunshield is amazing. It has Vitamin C, green tea, and antioxidants to help prevent brown spots and prevent free radical damage from the sun!
Acne Spots: Acne can cause hyper pigmentation because acne is an injury to the skin. This is why it is very important not to pop or pick at your pimples as this may result in darker scarring. Use a good Retin-A serum, like my Diamond Line Refine. My serum will not only promote collagen turnover to help with this scarring, but it will also mature your oil glands to help prevent new acne.
Hormonal- Melasma & Chloasma: Many women who have recently started birth control or are pregnant can experience an increase in dark spots. Melanocytes are triggered during hormonal changes and are extra-sensitive to UV damage. This is another reason to be religious with your sunscreen!
Microneedling: If you are looking for a deeper treatment, then consider microneedling! Microneedling causes micro-injuries to the surface of the skin, which triggers your body's healing response and produces collagen. Come by our office to for a microneedling treatment complemented by growth factors that boost skin cell growth and my Pure Hydration that topically fills in lines and penetrates deep into your skin to provide intense hydration.
Exfoliation: To regularly treat dark spots, make sure you are exfoliating your skin! An exfoliant with glycolic acid is crucial for lightening dark spots and brightening skin because glycolic acid renews skin by triggering skin cell turnover. My Glycolic Acid Cleanser not only has glycolic acid, but it also has Vitamins A,C, and E, as well as Green Tea extracts to prevent irritation.
Acne Free Skin All Summer!
Hydration: Lots of acne products can be drying, so this month we are focusing on bringing moisture and hydration back to the skin. An easy first step is drinking more water. Drinking water can not only prevent dry skin and flaking, but it also improves skin elasticity and flushes out skin toxins. The next step is using a good moisturizer that gives you moisture without making you oily. While you do want to re-hydrate your skin, you don't want to become too oily and break out again.
Glycolic Acid: To prevent future breakouts use a cleanser with glycolic acid. Glycolic acid is one of the smallest molecules in the alpha hydroxy acids family, which means it can penetrate the skin better than other molecules. It works topically by breaking down sebum on the surface of the skin and works on a deeper layer by triggering the skin's renewal process to bring you brighter, tighter skin. Glycolic acid also unclogs pores and prevents blackheads. Using a glycolic acid cleanser regularly is crucial to maintaining clear skin.
