Our original Q&A on Skincare. Feel free to contact us for questions related to your specific concerns.
I use a variety of skincare products from different companies, is this the best choice for my skin?
Using different lines is commonly referred to as “cherry picking”…We recommend that you speak to your skincare professional to make sure that the products you are using are working together to achieve the results you are looking for. There are many different variables when choosing a product…ingredient quality, source, delivery system etc. You want to make sure that what you are using is actually creating the change or adding the support it is intended for…as an example…what is the purpose of a great resurfacing product when the delivery system is not designed to actually penetrate the skin, leaving the supposed beneficial ingredients to just sit on the surface?
The ingredients within our skincare lines are designed to work together synergistically, resulting in complete cellular communication.
My skin is always dry, yet I keep breaking out, I wash my face all the time with just soap…why is this happening?
Soaps tend to strip your natural oil production completely, so your skin is left confused, saying “wait a minute, I have no oil, I must make more”, which begins a vicious cycle of imbalance. Your best bet would be to speak with your skincare professional to find out what the appropriate cleanser would be for your skin type to resume proper balance.
I am diligent about wearing sunscreen now that I’ve reached my thirties, but I am constantly noticing more and more dark spots, why is this?
Surprisingly, most of the sun damage we see in middle age came from when we were young children. As we age the more exposure the deeper the pigmentation and the harder to treat. There are however different forms of hyper-pigmentation (dark spots/freckling); you should speak to your skincare professional to determine the cause, depth and treatment for your specific skin type. We HIGHLY recommend continuing to be aware of the sun and re-applying your sunscreen throughout the day…please also be aware if you have young children and make sure that they are also protected from the sun!
