Vitamin C

Free radicals are one of the main causes of the visible aging process. They are in the food we eat and the air we breathe.  Scientists have proven by applying a topical antioxidant daily to your skin, it can help regenerate cells and protect you from free radicals.  These topical antioxidants are prevalent in the skincare world now more than ever and include vitamin C, vitamin E, resveratrol, retinol (vitamin A) and green tea.  Using a SkinCeuticals, NEOCUTIS or Obagi vitamin C topical serum every day, will not only prevent the extrinsic aging process from free radicals, but can make your sunscreen up to 8 times more effective.

This is a trend our dermatologists are rejoicing over!  The NO TAN trend not only keeps a youthful look, but helps prevent skin cancer.  Wearing a broad spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher daily decreases your risk of melanoma by 50%. One person dies of melanoma every hour, and tanning beds increase your risk of melanoma by 75%.  If you are spending a day at the beach, be sure to reapply your sunscreen every 45 minutes, wear a broad-brimmed hat and stay shaded as much as possible. Join celebrities Zooey Deschanel, Nicole Kidman and Scarlett Johansson in the NO TAN trend for 2015!

What does my makeup have to do with my skincare?

Your makeup is an extension of your skincare. Being aware of all ingredients is very important since some ingredients can undo the hard work you have put into your skincare and possibly damage your health. Talc, methyl, butyl, propyl and ethyl paraben are ingredients of concern.  Just because makeup says it is strictly mineral based, does not mean it doesn’t include these ingredients. These can be found in eye shadows, face powders and long wearing makeup products.

glo•minerals is a 100% mineral based foundation and is committed to using superior pharmaceutical-grade vitamins and minerals. glo products offer many benefits including antioxidants, UVA & UVB sun protection and it’s anti-inflammatory. In addition, this company is cruelty-free and does not test any products on animals. This makeup is highly recommended by our Board Certified Dermatologists and Licensed Estheticians

Growth factors are naturally occurring proteins which have been clinically proven to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and are essential in rebuilding collagen. Skin Secrets offers two types of skincare lines with growth factors; Neocutis and SkinMedica which both offer lift and fullness. Neocutis is formulated with PSP, a product composed of proteins obtained after cell disruption and helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improves skin tone and texture for renewed radiance and enhances skin firmness. SkinMedica is formulated with TNS, which is a mixture of proteins and antioxidants to help enhance and rejuvenate skin.  Just like PSP, TNS is an essential ingredient in rebuilding the skin’s lost collagen. These products have been featured in Elle, Instyle, Self, People, Web MD, The View and The Today Show.
