2016 Top Ten Skin Care Resolutions

  1. Wear SPF 30 every day

90% of all visible aging comes from sun damage. Protecting your skin daily will help keep it looking younger and healthier, while reducing your risk of skin cancer.

  1. Quit Smoking

Smoking accelerates the aging process within the skin, which leads to more wrinkling, sagging, and discoloration. Quitting smoking can be difficult, but there are ways to make it easier on your road to healthier skin. Many use vapes to help them stop the unhealthy habit, and with a variety of great-tasting vape liquids, this should be a simple transition. You can shop with them here if you’re interested to stop smoking through vaping.

  1. Eat Clean

A healthy, nutrient-dense diet will result in a youthful, radiant complexion. Eating clean has been shown to improve acne, rosacea, and eczema.

  1. Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate

Want skin that glows? Drink water! We recommend drinking half your body weight in ounces for ideal hydration.

  1. Reduce sugar & caffeine

Sugar causes inflammation which can aggravate acne and rosacea. It also can cause collagen and elastin fibers to become brittle which leads to premature aging. Caffeine is a diuretic and will dehydrate your skin if you’re not consuming enough water.

  1. Relax

Stress causes the release of hormones such as cortisol and testosterone, which can aggravate a number of skin conditions including acne, rosacea, eczema, psoriasis, hives, etc . Speaking of psoriasis, although there is no cure for this so far, some people may opt to use products such as nano glutathione liquid, in the hopes of improving the symptoms and managing it better than before. As well as this, it would also be beneficial to find ways to relieve stress too, as this could help. Stress may also accelerate cellular destruction which leads to premature aging.

  1. Exercise

Committing to a regular exercise routine will increase circulation to the skin, reduce the levels of stress hormones, and increase endorphin levels. This all leads to a beautiful, more youthful complexion.

  1. Wash your face every night

Remove dirt, oil, makeup, and pollutants that accumulate on your skin throughout the day.

  1. Sleep

Try to get at least 7 hours of sleep each night. Insufficient sleep will lead to accelerated aging and a reduction in your skin’s ability to repair itself.

  1. Invest in your skin

Fashion trends come and go, but great skin never goes out of style. Do yourself a favor and consult a qualified skin care professional to determine the best products and treatments for your skin type and concerns.

Too Young For Botox? Maybe Not.

When it comes to cosmetic procedures, the commonly held beliefaxle is to wait until you have signs of aging before beginning treatment. However, it is far more effective to start treating the skin early to prevent fine lines, wrinkles, discoloration, and loss of elasticity and volume. We encourage people to stay out of the sun, quit smoking, and adopt an age management skin care program by the age of 25 because it is easier to prevent premature aging than to correct it. There is even evidence to support the use of Botox early on to prevent or delay the development of fine lines and wrinkles caused by muscular contraction.

What Are Dermal Fillers Anyway?

Dermal Fillers are cosmetic injectables used to diminish testimonialsfacial lines and restore volume and fullness to the face. The most popular type are hyaluronic acid fillers. Hyaluronic acid is a natural sugar found in all living cells and is a major component of the skin’s connective tissue. It works by absorbing more that 1000x it’s weight in water, therefore hydrating the skin while increasing volume and density.

Areas that are treated with dermal fillers include lines around the mouth (nasolabial folds & marionette lines), tear troughs, cheeks, temples, and lips. The results are immediate and may last from 4 months to 2 years, depending on type of filler and area treated. To  minimize discomfort, a topical numbing cream is usually applied prior to the procedure, and some fillers actually have lidocaine (a common numbing agent) in them.

MicroNeedling: The Latest Technology in Age Management & Skin Resurfacing

eclipse

MicroNeedling is Hollywood’s hottest secret! This new innovation in cosmetic medicine has been clinically proven to treat fine lines & wrinkles, acne scars, discoloration, and uneven texture. During the microneedling procedure, tiny micro-channels are created in the skin that penetrate into the dermis, or inner layer of the skin. These microchannels trigger the release of growth factors within the skin, which in turn increase collagen production, stem cell production, and an overall resurfacing of the skin. The results are nothing short of amazing!

Botox Myths & Facts

botox-myths

There are a lot of myths flying around about Botox, and I’m here to debunk them. A lot of people seem to avoid botox due to these simply untrue myths that seem to spread like fire. The truth is, Botox has helped many people feel much more comfortable and happier in their own skin. Botox is a simple and super effective procedure that turns back the clock for a more youthful, yet natural appearance. It is used to treat the forehead, in between the brows, and the eye area, and can even be done preventatively. Treatments are not expensive and are typically done every 3-6 months. Botox is injected directly into the muscle where it is completely absorbed. It works by blocking the signal that tells your muscles to contract, therefore holding the muscle in a state of relaxation. If you’re interested in getting botox, you can access plastic surgery procedures and non-surgical treatments in Las Vegas to rectify those lines.
