Pollution & Stress

We often get information about the sun’s damaging effects on skin, but many may not be aware that other environmental and even emotional factors can contribute to premature aging in a nearly identical manner. According to a recent article in The Dermatologist, the dangerous reactive oxygen species known to cause aging in the skin is generated not only by ultraviolet radiation, but can also be produced from other sources, including pollution and stress. Consequently, those who live in areas with poor air quality, smoke or live high-stress lifestyles are at increased risk for the formation of reactive oxygen species, which age skin by attacking its DNA, proteins and lipids. We generally know how to protect ourselves from the sun; how do we stay mindful of…

Skincare Consistency

Consistency is often the key for achieving desired results – whether we’re talking about exercise, work performance or even parenting. For skin, it’s no different. Chalk it up to a busy schedule, one too many cocktails or just sheer laziness, but it’s not uncommon for one to “cheat” on their regular skincare regimen, from skipping crucial steps to foregoing the entire routine following a late night out. What most people don’t realize is that skincare inconsistency can considerably affect the condition of skin, even if transgressions seem insignificant. One night of sleeping in full makeup may seem like no biggie, but since skin renews itself in the evening hours, this disruption can bring clogged pores, breakouts and skin irritation for the week thereafter. Sticking to…

Addressing Specific Skin Concerns

Probably since you were an adolescent, you’ve known your skin type. Whether your complexion can be characterized as oily, dry or sensitive, chances are, you gravitate toward skincare products that are designed to address that specific category. While that’s all fine and good, it’s important to remember that skincare is not a one-size-fits-all situation, and your unique skin profile is much more complex than a one-word descriptor. In fact, most of us struggle with skin issues that aren’t always skin-type specific, such as wrinkles, acne or sun damage, so it’s important to go deeper with our skin diagnosis in order to create a more effective daily skincare regimen. Make sure to see an esthetician for a complete skin analysis to see what specific skin issues…

Saving Skin from Summer

Summer is officially upon us, and when we think about the sunniest season of the year, it’s typically all rainbows and unicorns: lazy days spent at the beach, outdoor concerts, water play, and a more relaxed schedule and overall state of mind. And while we don’t want to throw shade at summer, it’s important to also remember some of the less appealing aspects of the longest days of sunlight – especially when it comes to our skin. Big-time sun exposure and a hot, dry or humid climate can give rise to new skin conditions or exacerbate existing ones, from breakouts, sunburn, irritation and dehydration to redness, Rosacea and more. And considering the season takes a “less is more” approach to both clothing and makeup, suffering…

Dealing with Sensitive Skin

Being sensitive can be a great quality – except when we’re talking about skin. Dealing with a complexion that is prone to redness, burning/stinging and dehydration can be frustrating, and unfortunately cases of this temperamental skin condition are on the rise. A recent study conducted by the International Society of Dermatology reported that 44. 6% of nearly 1,000 participants claimed to have sensitive to very sensitive skin, while other reputable dermatologists find this number to be as high as 70%! Whether your skin sensitivity is chronic or crops up in isolated incidents, it necessitates a specific and regular skincare regimen to reduce unsightly and uncomfortable eruptions.   To properly diagnose a sensitive skin condition – and learn how to deal with it – consider the…

Alcohol and Skin

Let’s face it: March is kind of a party month. There’s Mardi Gras (Fat Tuesday), St. Patty’s Day, and frankly, anyone living east of California this winter is probably looking for any excuse for a stiff drink. I mean, who knew the third month of the year was also National Frozen Food Month? Margaritas anyone? Whatever random March holiday you choose to “cheers” to, it’s safe to say a hangover is likely on the horizon this month. And while you may be thinking about how said hangover will affect destroy your next-day plans, you may be unaware of how it could also sabotage your skin. When it comes to your complexion, overuse of alcohol can spell trouble for two major reasons: dehydration and Vitamin A…

Skincare Patience

In today’s fast-paced world, patience truly is a virtue. We’ve become accustomed to always expecting the immediate – whether it’s a Google search, fast food or overnight shipping.   However, not everything in life can be achieved with a few swift keystrokes or a deep fryer. Not surprisingly, skincare is not immune to the pressures of impatient consumers. If you’ve recently found yourself in the drugstore beauty aisle or within the pages of your favorite fashion magazine, you’re no stranger to marketing ploys that promise “clear/younger/perfect skin in minutes.” While we’d love to say flawless skin can be achieved as fast as your Keurig pours out a perfect cup of coffee, whether it’s in regard to regimen or results, skincare should never be a rush…

Travel

As the first signs of spring emerge, so start the fantasies of escaping to a sunny destination for spring break or summer vacation. A glorious getaway can be rejuvenating for body and soul, but travel – especially to a sunny locale – can leave skin in a precarious place. Before you get on that plane to paradise, make sure you’ve packed the proper skincare essentials to keep skin protected from the dehydrating and damaging effects of recycled air, swim time, sunburn – and one too many Margaritas. Take note of the following travel tips to ensure your complexion cruises smoothly through spring break or summer vacation: Beware recycled air. While your final vacation destination may be Hawaii or Mexico, you might not realize your skin…

Springtime Skincare

We see spring as a seasonal rebirth of sorts – sloughing off the woes of winter and emerging fresh and renewed. While this second-quarter “metamorphosis” often serves as a metaphor for everything from romance to mood to fashion, it most certainly also applies to our skin. Winter can give the complexion quite a beating, thanks to cold, dry conditions that leave skin dehydrated, irritated and dull. And with spring fever in full bloom, we’re pretty sure most of us would prefer not subjecting our future (or current) soul mate to the seasonal skin pitfalls we’ve experienced in the several months prior. So, how do we ensure our springtime skin successfully escapes its winter cocoon and brings forth butterfly-like beauty? We recommend the following springtime skincare…
