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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
Ah, the follies of youth! Too much sun (but a whole lot of fun) and now the brown spots, premature wrinkling, and blotchy skin are acting like they have a right to take up residence on your beautiful face.
Not just a nuisance, these skin conditions really affect how you feel about your looks. No more.
Now say, “Hello, Gorgeous!” because I know how to give you back youthful, smooth skin quickly.
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.
