Summer is here, Are you ready?

Summer is finally here and heat, humidity and sunshine will be knocking on your door delivering dry skin, age spots and wrinkles.  Don’t let these potential downers ruin your fun in the sun.  Now is the perfect time to start a summer skin care regimen.
Brown spots, age spots, and sun spots, also known as liver spots, can make people look older than they really are. These spots can appear on people younger than 40, but are more common in our 40s and up.

So what should you do if you have brown spots? First, prevention! Keep your skin healthy and protected with a good sunscreen. Second, treat the spots. Pigment Formula, applied daily after exfoliating with AHA Face Cream, can help reduce brown spots. For further treatment, in-office laser treatments can help.

Hair also takes a beating during the summer.  Swimming in pools, swimming in salt water, and the sun all take a toll and can result in dull, thinning hair. Many patients ask me for recommendations about hair loss treatments, and that’s why I developed a shampoo and conditioner to help restore hair damaged by processing and aging.

Most shampoos and conditioners contain harsh chemicals like dyes, parabens, silicone, and acrylites, which can damage your hair after frequent use. My hair products are formulated to be gentle.  They do not contain dyes, parabens, and acrylites and are perfume free, allergy tested and color safe and use an innovative blend of restorative ingredients, including Lavender Oil and Coconut Water to make hair look fuller and thicker, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice to soothe and moisturize the scalp. Additionally, anti-oxidants, such as Avocado Extract and Oleanolic Acid, provide intense nourishment while also protecting hair from the damaging effects of the sun. Visible results are often seen in just a few weeks.

Tips for dealing with rosacea in the summer

16 million Americans suffer from rosacea and many report that symptoms worsen in the summer months. Redness, rashy bumps and visible blood vessels are all signs of rosacea and can be aggravated by heat. Cooling off quickly will help, as will shield skin from the sun. Make sure to use fragrance-free sunscreen, such as SPF-40 Lotion Mist, and wear a hat. Products with aloe can help reduce inflammation, as can tracking your triggers to see what leads to flare-ups. The National Rosacea Society has a Rosacea Diary Form that can help find patterns.

Skin care products in our Rosacea Rescue Kits offer a two-step treatment: The first step is to improve the general health of the skin with specific cleansing, toning and moisturizing thus helping rosacea withstand progression. The second step is to address the redness itself with specialized treatments. Through prevention and treatment, rosacea sufferers can help keep flare ups to a minimum even during the summer months.

Reduce Wrinkles With Exercise

It’s hardly news that exercise is great for your health, but did you know it’s also good for your skin! A new study from McMaster University in Ontario reported improvements in people who started exercising later in life. As we get older, skin loses its elasticity and luster, resulting in the inevitable wrinkles, crow’s feet and sagging. The researchers observed lab mice that exercise could prolong and even undo aging’s effects. Those  mice that frequented the running wheel maintained healthy brains, hearts, muscles, reproductive organs and didn’t gray.

 

To confirm the theory, the scientists took volunteers ages 20 to 84, half of whom were active (engaging in at least three hours of moderate or vigorous physical activity every week), and half of whom were sedentary, only exercising for less than an hour per week.

 

Tarnopolsky and colleagues conducted the study in a way that would rule out any other factors as the deciding cause for these positive changes. Seniors over age 65 who indulged in moderate exercise for 30 minutes a day over a three-month period had skin similar to 20- to 40-year-olds, biopsy results proved.

 

So now we have yet another good reason to exercise.  Of course, if you are exercising outdoors make sure you use plenty of sunblock. SPF-40 Lotion Mist

Rewind Eye to the rescue for spring allergies!

Got this email from one of my patients:

“I’ve always loved your products but want to let you know that your Rewind Eye Cream has been a lifesaver the past few days. My eyes have been so itchy and red and puffy from allergies, but after eye drops I’ve been using your Eye Cream to soothe the area around my eyes. The puffiness and dark circles have gotten better and I am much more comfortable.”

Spring allergies can irritate the eyes, and while there are OTC remedies for itching and tearing, many of my patients get “allergy shiners” – puffiness and dark circles around the eyes.  I recommend using Rewind Eye Formula andAgeless Skin Under Eye Concealer to help decrease swelling and eliminate dark circles.  Both products are effective at treating the delicate eye area.

The concealer is unique because it not only gives the eyes a lift by covering dark circles but also reduces fine lines and wrinkles. It’s formulated to go on smoothly and doesn’t cake or flake after application. This 1-2 combination will help you get through pollen season and will improve the skin around your eyes throughout the year.

Ingredient spotlight: Cucumbers

Cucumber extract is an ingredient found in my products, such as Pigment Formula and SPF-40 Lotion Mist, because it has many soothing and regenerative qualities. It’s also a great addition to a healthy diet that will help you achieve beautiful skin. Cucumbers are incredibly low in calories and carbs, and have no fat, cholesterol or sodium. They are high in fiber and provide vitamins A, C, K, B6, folate and thiamin and several essential minerals, including zinc and potassium. Cucumbers are perfect for a summer salad and great for your skin.
