  • Does Oily Skin Need A Moisturizer?

    Wednesday, February 15, 2017 - 7:43am

    If you have oily skin, you might be thinking, “I don’t need any more oil on my face!” And you are right! What you do need is moisture.

    Big difference.

    Oily skin types are generally dehydrated, and that’s a big part of the problem. Your skin is screaming, “Quick! Make more oil!” But it really needs water. That’s why you need an oil-free moisturizer.

    Your skin needs balance!

    Your local drugstore or department store does offer a wide variety of products, but are they right for you?

  • How To Get Younger-Looking Skin At Any Age Without Invasive Treatments

    Thursday, January 26, 2017 - 7:17am

    I applaud every woman who wants to keep her skin looking beautiful. Unfortunately, many times to get that younger, healthier skin, it feels like you have to take out a second mortgage!

  • Do Showers Help Dry Skin Stay Moist?

    Tuesday, January 17, 2017 - 4:46am

    Who doesn’t love a long, hot shower or soak in a hot tub? Yes, they are incredibly lovely and soothing, but for dry skin, very hot water breaks down your lipid barrier and moisture leaks out, causing dryness and itchiness.

    It’s best to use warm water then pat dry when you get out of the shower or tub. Follow this with body lotion or oil to seal in moisture. And, of course, don’t forget your facial moisturizer.

  • Is your Birth Control causing you to have ACNE?

    Saturday, December 24, 2016 - 6:36am

    You might want to call your Physician instead of your Dermatologist to help combat your acne. REALLY!?

     

    Yes! Helping young women have clear skin is my thing. And often times it’s all in their hormones. Am I advocating every teenager get on the pill…NO! I’m suggesting it will help, much better than antibiotics and prescription acne cream and irritating retinoic creams.

  • People should be beautiful in every way-in their faces, in the way they dress, in their thoughts, and in their innermost selves

    Monday, December 19, 2016 - 6:29am

    It’s no secret European women don’t skimp on skin care and monthly facials. European women spend about 75% on skin care and 25% on makeup - North Americans are the exact opposite with 25% on skin care and 75% on makeup.  European women are more concerned about preventing aging than fixing it with the help of make-up or plastic surgery. 

  • Why does dry skin itch?

    Wednesday, December 14, 2016 - 6:40am

    Dry skin has exposed gaps in the barrier function, making nerve endings more exposed. When surface cells dry, they become more brittle and itchy. When the skin is scratched, these cells are removed and the skin becomes inflamed and can even become red and itchier!

  • Do Thick Moisturizers Give More Hydration?

    Monday, November 14, 2016 - 7:02am

    It’s a mistake I see all too frequently. Women with “dry” skin buy heavy, oil-based moisturizers because they think their skin is truly dry.

     

    Initially, the heaviness feels good, relieving that tight, dry feeling. But a few hours later, the old problem returns. Why? It’s the wrong product! Truly dry skin actually flakes. It needs an oil-based moisturizer to replenish that missing ingredient in your skin.

  • Are You Sick And Tired Of Shaving? (Here’s What To Do)

    Monday, November 7, 2016 - 7:36am

    UGH! Shaving is so tedious, isn’t it? And what about those ingrown hairs around your bikini line? That’s definitely an ouchy.

     

    Instead of putting up with the drudgery and inconvenience of shaving, just get rid of that unwanted hair!

    With Intense Pulse Light Therapy, or IPL, the next generation in light therapy, you can get rid of unwanted hair on almost any part of the body. In fact, IPL is so effective that it gets rid of 80% or more of hair permanently.

  • Many Benefits of Rosehip Seed Oil

    Thursday, September 8, 2016 - 7:05am

    Used for generations by the Andean Indians of Chile who recognized years ago that Rosehip seed oil had exceptional healing benefits for skin and hair. The essential fatty acids in rosehip seed oil quench dry, sun damaged skin and helps to improve the appearance of burns, scars, wrinkles and stretch marks and gives a beautiful, natural glow to the skin when used regularly.

  • Bye-Bye Summer! The Secret To Turning Up Your Skin’s Glow

    Monday, September 5, 2016 - 10:52pm

    Because your skin is greatly affected by the seasons, you have to give it what it needs for each season of the year. As a result, your home care may need to change to accommodate those needs.

    Think of it this way. You don’t wear winter clothes in the summer. So why would you use the same skin care regimen all year long?
