    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:

  • Can you shrink your pores?

    Sunday, April 21, 2019 - 3:11pm

    Pore size and prominence is partially determined by your genes but significantly affected by your daily habits and lifestyles choices. Your skin type, too, plays a role. Naturally dry skin tends to appear poreless, while oily skin has more-visible pores.

  • What are Sebaceous Hyperplasias?

    Monday, December 4, 2017 - 11:24pm

    Sebaceous hyperplasia is the term used for enlarged sebaceous glands seen on the forehead or cheeks of the middle-aged and elderly leading to an ongoing problem with over-productive oil glands. They appear to be somewhat indented in the middle. This indented centre is characteristic of sebaceous hyperplasia. It has nothing to do with milia or an old spot.

  • Does Oily Skin Need A Moisturizer?

    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!

  • 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 Sure You Have Oily Skin?

    It’s not uncommon for women to tell me during their Advanced Skin Analysis they have oily skin, when in fact, they actually have combination skin.

     

    What’s the difference?

    Oily skin is oily all over—not just the t-zone. Combination skin types experience two skin conditions on their face, oily and normal or dry. It’s tricky and difficult.

     

  • Are You Sure You Have Oily/Combination Skin?

    Are You Sure You Have Oily Skin?

     

    It’s not uncommon for women to tell me they have oily skin, when in fact, they actually have combination skin.

    What’s the difference? Oily skin is oily all over—not just the t-zone. Combination skin types experience two skin conditions on their face, oily and normal or dry. It’s tricky and difficult.

    While you may have to use lighter products in your t-zone and heavier products on your cheeks, exfoliation remains simple!

  • How To Treat Tight, Dry Facial Skin?

    Sunday, January 17, 2016 - 6:41am

    It feels awful, doesn’t it? Tight, dry facial skin is not only uncomfortable, but it’s actually visible!

    Known as dehydrated skin, that tight, dry feeling looks dull. Make-up doesn’t perform nearly as well and can accentuate the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

    You may think of dehydrated skin as a winter problem, but the sun can wreak just as much havoc.

     

  • What You Can Do About Large Pores?

    Sunday, January 10, 2016 - 1:32pm

    Grrr! Large pores, what can you do about them? Plenty! Let’s start with the basics.

     

    The right cleanser: Large pores are often the result of oily skin, sun damage and genetics. Opt for an exfoliant cleanser to slough off the outer layer of dead skin cells, leaving you with smoother skin.

    Retinoids: These are not only excellent for reducing the appearance of large pores, but they smooth fine lines and wrinkles!

  • What's your Skin Type?

    Friday, July 24, 2015 - 12:34pm

    Oily Skin

    Oily skin tends to be shiny with enlarged pores, and is prone to blackheads and blemishes. You might experience some tightness.

     

    Combination/Normal Skin

    This skin type has medium pores, a smooth and even texture, good circulation, healthy color, may tend towards dryness on the cheeks while being oily in the T-Zone.
