  • Does Dimethicone clog pores and suffocate the skin?

    Friday, December 29, 2017 - 7:38am

    Dimethicone is a non-greasy occlusive silicone based polymer that is a man-made synthetic molecule made up of repeating units called monomers. It also has been shown time and time again to be non-comedogenic, yet it provides a significant amount of emollience and coverage to the skin, without adding any heaviness. 

  • Why Retinol is such a workhorse in your skin care regimen?

    Wednesday, December 6, 2017 - 4:28am

    As we age our cycle of cell production slows down to about 45-60 days in our 40's and 50's and further slow down to 60-90 days in our 50's and 60's. Retinol is a vitamin A derivative that has been used for anti-aging and acne clients for years. Retinol stimulates the metabolism of skin cells and encourages collagen production. Retinol is much gentler when absorbed within the skin and it’s converted into tretinoin (the acid form of vitamin A, also known as retinoic acid).

    And the results are nothing short of amazing! This powerful antioxidant slows free radical damage, those pesky, unstable molecules that damage collagen, cause skin dryness, fine lines and wrinkles.

    Why am I successful at resolving Acne?

    Acne is not a bacterial problem. Acne is an inherited tendency of too many dead skin cells within the pores. Antibiotics do NOTHING to address this underlying cause. According to Dr. James Fulton, co-developer of Retin A, even if you had an antibiotic that killed 100% of the bacteria, you would still have a recurring acne problem.

  • 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!
