RETINOIDS  and the fountain of youth

RETINOIDS and Anti-Aging Skin Care

Retinoids are a product that is an important one to include to be proactive for youthful appearance. Who doesn’t want to put their best face forward ?  When retinoids turn over the skins’ cells they promote healthy skin.  Retinoids are used to  minimize the appearance of wrinkles, bolster skin’s plump youthful and elastic appearance, and lighten brown spots caused by sun exposure. Retinoids are Vitamin A also unclog pores.  Results vary depending on the strength and how often used.  I usually advise clients when starting off any strength they should apply every other night as there is USUALLY an adjustment or ugly phase. Vitamin A/ retinoids can inflame the skin where it becomes sensitive, red and peeling.  After a week or two, you can reevaluate the times used per week to either stay the same, increase, or decrease as tolerated. Retinoids need to be applied at night as this is a photosensitive product. Therefore,  sunblock needs to be used during the day.  I advise my clients to stay out of the sun during 11am -2pm because of intensity of the sun. If they don’t or are going to be in the sun, a hat is desirable too.

Skin Care Misconceptions

Skin Care misconceptions. Steps 2, 3 and 4

2.Vitamin E minimizes scarring.

Vitamin E is an antioxidant and helps build skin, but there is no evidence that it does anything to help with scarring. There is even some research that suggest it may have a negative effect on scarring.


3. Cucumbers help reduce puffiness around the eyes.

The principle ingredient in cucumber is 90% water with the balance being inert fiber. They can be soothing and, with moisture, hydrate skin temporarily. The same results can be obtained from a cold compress.


4. Skin pores open and close.

Pores are openings in the skin that allow oils (sebum) to reach the surface. If pores are larger, this can be due to dead cells, genetics or scarring from squeezing blemishes.
