Beautiful Skin Takes Time

While this approach works, I would like to introduce a slower but more effective method, whereby we first work with what’s causing it and then we improve the symptom. For example, some clients come to us with a dark spot on their face (hyperpigmentation). In the past, we would usually work that condition with a specific method, be it the e-matrix or a peel. However, we now want to look at it differently by determining the...

Today, we want to place some emphasis in Olive Oil, since is often a very good idea to keep it simple and natural, especially for those with allergies or a very sensitive skin complexion. Unlike cream and lotion in the market that contains preservatives and alcohol, pure oils have a natural base and I recommend them as wonderful natural skin dry remedies. Natural Oils works as moisturizers and mixed with other ingredientes work as a...

A client should always be granted the opportunity to express what his or...

Melasma Treatments

Melasma is a skin disorder that causes discoloration on the skin. More often than not, Melasma appears on the face in the form of dark patches, making your skin tone uneven. Although the symptoms of this disorder are superficial, you may have a genetic predisposition to Melasma; as it has been recorded to be more prominent in people with tan skin tones than in those with light or dark skin tones. Other components that increase your risk of developing Melasma include sun exposure; hormonal changes experienced during pregnancy or through the use of oral contraceptives and strong skin care products. Treating Melasma generally begins with protecting your skin...

Melasma

What causes it? If you’re noticing light to dark brown or gray patches on your skin, you may have Melasma. Melasma is a common skin disorder that affects 1 in 4 women globally and 1 in 20 men. It is typically seen on people with a natural brown skin tone but has affected those with lighter, fair skin and darker, black skin. In simple terms, the condition is a form of hyperpigmentation that causes the skin to produce more melanin (the formulation of pigment – skin color) in certain areas of your body, primarily the face. For most people, these patches become embarrassingly noticeable and can lead to...

The Sun is the Primary Cause of Aging

  The battle against aging is a concept as ancient as the extinction of dinosaurs. At some point, we all come to terms with the fact that we will grow old but we will do so gracefully. There are preventative measures we can take to ensure that our skin continues to appear youthful and the most significant of all is protecting ourselves from the sun. As the summer comes to end and we begin to prepare for winter, our skin is most likely recovering from all the sunny days we spent outdoors. The sun damage our skin experiences can be as lasting as all the memories you made throughout...

Don’t Just Fight Wrinkles, Tighten Your Skin

Although wrinkles can be a telltale sign of aging, it’s not the only sign. The number one indicator that your skin is aging is loosening. As we get older, the amount of oil that our skin produces begins to decrease, resulting in drier and looser skin. Although it’s simply a fact of life, loose skin still makes us look—and, as a result, feel—much older. This is the point when we run to the store, pulling any product off the shelf that has remotely anything to do with “anti-aging.” However, many anti-aging creams tend to only fight wrinkles. This helps in one way—it smooths out your wrinkles, but it doesn’t...

What Sunscreen Works Best For Your Skin Type?

It’s important to apply sunscreen every time that you go out in order to prevent short-term (sunburn) or long-term (sun spots or skin cancer) skin damage.

Some of these can happen if you’re using the wrong sunscreen, so keep reading to find out what sunscreen works best for your skin type. Oily Skin If you have naturally oily skin, the last thing that you want to do is apply something with an oily consistency to your face. However, sunscreens do come in mineral...

6 Ways to Protect Your Skin Against Sun Damage

Although the sun causes short-term skin damage through painful sunburn, there are many much worse long term effects that we can always see, such as susceptibility to wrinkles, sunspots, and even skin cancer. It’s important that you are aware of how to protect your skin against potential sun damage. 1. Keep up with sunscreen application. Always apply a thick coat of 15 SPF sunscreen or higher. Layers that are too thin aren’t even half as effective as a thick layer, so don’t skimp. Apply at least 20-30 minutes before you’re in the sun and be sure to reapply every two hours. 2. Wear a hat. Hats or dark clothing...
