    Monday, May 11, 2015 - 8:37pm

    None of us has a ton of time these days. That’s why it’s important to pack as much punch into your skincare routine as possible.

    But what if you want MORE results from your skincare without adding extra time? Great! We’ve got some “at home” solutions that will knock your socks off! These are chemical exfoliants that contain enzymes to work a little more deeply.

    Let’s take a look:

  • Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize.

    Leaving moisturizer out of your routine today could lead to deeper wrinkles later on. When the skin barrier is compromised, which is what we see when it becomes dry, there's actually a low-grade chronic inflammation that occurs in the skin.

    Low levels of ongoing inflammation ultimately lead to a breakdown of collagen and accelerated aging. Even if your skin type tends to be normal to oily, using a high-quality moisturizer on a regular basis can be the key to improving the way your skin looks and feels.

  • I Challenge The “I Don’t Have Time To Get Good Skincare” Excuse!

    Sunday, March 27, 2016 - 6:33am

    I get it. Almost every person on the planet is trying to find more time in his or her day.

     

    So what happens? Skincare gets pushed to the back of the “to do” list, which usually means you’re on overload. See if any of these excuses sound familiar.

     

  • What do Peptides do for your skin?

    Tuesday, March 22, 2016 - 6:56am

    Peptides are “messages” made from chains of amino acids and signal your skin to make more collagen.

    One of the most popular signal peptide for cosmetic use is palmitoyl pentapeptide (Matrixyl) a neuropeptide that reduces fine lines very well. It can be found in many peptide skin care products and is quite effective in improving the appearance of fine lines and give your skin a more youthful appearance.

  • What is the best way to find a good Esthetician or Skin Therapist?

    Friday, February 19, 2016 - 6:02am

    This is a good question. In most provinces and states, Estheticians, also Medical Estheticians, also sometimes called Facial Specialist, Skin Care Specialist, or Skin Therapist, are regulated by the State Board of Cosmetology. In Canada, only Nova Scotia has Licensed Estheticians, the rest of the country is unregulated and education is not required. Many States have websites so consumers can check to make sure their specialist is licensed. Sadly, Canada has nothing like this.

  • The Skin Care Excuse Hall Of Fame - Excuse #5

    Thursday, December 3, 2015 - 4:26am

    Excuse #5: “Your products are too expensive and I have a family to feed!”

     

    This excuse is rooted in family protection, wanting to make sure your kids have what they need to live a good life. That’s completely understandable so let’s add a little balance to the equation.

    The kids that come into my skin clinic never look under loved. It’s obvious to me that their needs are more than provided for. I love to see that!

    So, just make sure that excuse is not hiding the same mistake women around the world have made for a millennia.

     

  • The Skin Care Excuse Hall Of Fame - Excuse #3

    Thursday, November 19, 2015 - 3:44am

    Excuse #3: “It’s Too Late For Me To Do Anything About My Wrinkles!”

     

    Okay, this excuse has my knickers in a twist! Why?

    Well, that’s easy. We live in a world with incredible advancements in absolutely everything from computers to skin care. That’s why our ability to rejuvenate skin that’s “too late” for any help is remarkable.

    The products I offer, as well as my treatments, are living proof that you can look younger at any age!

    Bottom line: It’s never too late to turn back the hands of time.

  • The Skin Care Excuse Hall Of Fame - Excuse #2

    Thursday, November 12, 2015 - 3:33am

    Excuse #2: “My Mom Always Used Soap And She Has Good Skin

     

    This is an interesting excuse. So let’s take a close look at it. Because mom always used soap seems, on the surface, to be a strong enough justification to do the same thing, right?

    Well, mom also used:

    • A rotary phone or push button phone
    • Waxy lipstick
    • A sink to wash dishes
    • The newspaper to catch up on what’s happening

     

    Done any of those things lately?
