Summer skin Care Tips from Esthetician
HOW DOES EXERCISE IMPROVE THE SKIN?
MAKES YOU SWEAT Along with the kidneys and liver, the skin is one of the body's mechanisms for ridding itself of toxins.
Vigorous exercise helps the body do just that. It gives the sweat glands a workout too, helping the skin to get rid of the things that can clog pores or cause breakouts.
It's very important to wash the face after exercising. Pore clearing cleanser is a great post-workout face wash. Purifying sage, thyme, eucalyptus and a patented blend of the most active fractions of tea tree oils from New Zealand and Australia work quickly to balance pore ecology without causing irritation and redness.
BOOSTS OXYGEN AND BLOOD FLOW TO THE SKIN Exercise increases blood flow to the skin and that increase also carries more oxygen to the skin. The increased blood flow to the skin and that increase also carries more oxygen to the skin. The increased blood flow and oxygen also helps carry nutrients that support skin health. That means all the nutrients from the good food consumed as part of New Year's diet makeover can benefit the skin. Adding Oxygen Boosting Complex Will also energize the skin and help to super-charge results of serums.
RELIEVES STRESS Stress affects every cell in the body and amplifies existing skin problems. It causes everything from breakouts to prolonged redness to an acceleration of the skin's aging process by as much as 6-10 years-making stress the 2nd greatest influence on aging, second only to sunlight. Cortisol-the master stress hormone-triggers inflammation at a cellular level, damages cell membranes, shortens DNA strand and reduces cellular production of youthening proteins, especially collagens, elastin and glycosaminoglycans. This leads to early cell death and the onset of premature aging. Luckily, exercise is the ultimate stress reliever and can keep your skin looking young, healthy and vibrant. If stress is a big factor, suggest Stress Recovery Complex ">Stress Recovery Complex which contains a stress- fighting technology called Cortinhib. Studies show that it helps stressed skin withstand the visible effects of cortisol within 30 minutes of application.
TONES YOUR MUSCLES Toned muscles are a great benefit of a regular exercise routine. Strong and firm muscles help to support the skin, which makes it firmer and feel more elastin. Exercise can't get rid of cellulite, but it may help diminish its appearance. Suggest Triple C &E Lotion to give an extra boost to those areas lacking firmness and elasticity.
SKIN & EXERCISE DO'S & DON'TS
While it's tempting, don't wear makeup when exercising. The mixture of dirt, sweat and cosmetics , is the perfect recipe for clogged pores and breakouts. But if makeup is a must, be sure to wash the face immediately after exercising to get rid of impurities that can cause problems.
Can't wash right away? Packing a small Ziploc bag with cotton balls lightly soaked in Pore Purifying Astringent to do a quick cleansing swipe after a workout if showering immediately isn't an option.
If heat-activated Rosacea is a concern, do try low-intensity or moderate workouts. Swimming is a great choice because the water will keep the body cool during a full body workout. Or try alternating "hot" and "cool" activities: lift weights or run for 15 minutes, then stretch or swim for 15 minutes. Once the body has cooled down, return to the more vigorous activities and continue to switch it up to help regulate body temperature. Remember to apply R-Relief Serum to cool down heat-activated skin.
If outdoor exercise is on the list of activities, do protect the skin from the sun and/or harsh, cold weather.
Solar Defender SPF 30 is sweat resistant and water resistant which makes it the perfect sunscreen to wear during outdoor sports and/or exercise. For cold weather, 1 pump of Moisture Boost Hydra Gel under a layer of Calming Bio Lipid Repair Creme helps to seal in moisture and protect from harsh environments.
The truth about Sun Screen
1. There is no such thing as sunblock.
No sun screen completely block UV rays.
An SPF 15 protests against 93% of UV rays(allowing 7% to get through and burn your skin),SPF 30 protects against 97%(allowing 3% to get through and burn your skin),
SPF 50 wards off 98%, SPF 98 about 99%- and these percentages only pertain if you apply the right amount. If not , even less protection is delivered. So get rid of the word "sunblock"- unless you're saying," there's no such thing as sunblock".
2. What is SPF
The SPF number tells you the amount of time it take your skin to become slightly red 24 hours after sun exposure. If 15 minutes of sun exposure brings redness to your skin the following day, then SPF 30 gives you seven and a half hours of sun protection. If you burn in just 5 minutes, you'll only be protected for two and a half hours.
3. To get a sunscreen's full SPF protection, you need to apply more than you think.
The product featuring an SPF. What's the right amount? Follow the Two Finger Rule : for a person's face, neck, and ears apply a line of sunscreen 1/8" wide down the index and middle fingers. The same amount is also applied to different areas of the body: each arm and shoulder is one area, each leg another, the torso and back are two other areas. All are covered by the Two Finger Rule. Fingers make a great measuring tool since they are the right size for each person's body areas, whether you're a small child or a large adult!
4.SPF 30 is high enough for most people.
Even if you are taking a drug or have a medical condition that causes your skin to react to sunlight, dermatologists say SPF 30 should provide enough protection to keep your skin safe in the sun. Of course, nothing is as effective as wearing protective clothing or staying out of the sun altogether.
5. There is no such thing as a "healthy" tan.
Any tan- even a base tan- signals that DNA within skin cells has sustained damage
. Here's how a tan develops: When damage occurs, DNA sends a molecular message to nearby cells named 'melanocytes' to tell them the body's own sunscreen -named 'melanin' -is needed to protect the DNA from further damage. Whether this tanning process occurs in natural sunlight or from tanning lamps is irrelevant. The damage is done. And this damage is almost always embedded in the DNA for years- if not a lifetime-where it waits to show up as premature sighs of age or even skin cancer, triggered by a bout of intense UV exposure, such as a vacation in the sun years after the initial damage occurs. So no UV-tanned skin, regardless of the UV source is healthy. None.

Smoking & Skin
We don't need to tell you that smoking is bad. Yet, we all have clients who still insist on lighting up. According to the centers for Disease Control,
Approximately 45.3 million Americans smoke (that's 19.3% of adults 18-years and older). The damage that smoking does inside the body is well documented, but many smokers don't realized the toll it takes on the skin.
Slightly reddened or orange complexion
Breakdown of elastin fibers (elattosis) produce yellow, irregularly thickened skin
Contains less water than non-smokers'
Increased wrinkling especially in the cheeks and around the mouth
Blackheads are more common in smokers-appearing on the tops of cheeks, sides of nose, upper lip& forehead.
And they're large& harder due to oxidation from free radicals in smoke.
Smoker's skin facts
Smoke destroys collagen. It takes up to a week after one exposure to regenerate. Collagen-destroying enzymers(MMPS) ramp up when exposed to tobacco smoke.
Heavy smokers are nearly 5Xs more likely to be wrinkled than non smokers
Flbroblasts- collagen-making dermal cells-produce 40% less collagen when exposed to tobacco smoke.
Every breath of smoke kills over 50,000 natural killer cells in the lungs. There circulating cells are the body's primary defense against Cancer. But that's not all, first & secondhand smoke reduce the speed of wound-healing chemicals in smoke after the arrangement of cell's internal structure,causing cells to stick to one another& reducing their ability to move during the healing process. This leads to abnormal healing& excessive scarring .Of course, the healthiest move is to stop. If that's not an option, stop smoking 2 weeks before & after surgery.
Problem solvers for smokers !!!!!!!
Exposure to 1 st & 2nd Hand Smoke: Pollution solution mist according to 24-hours in vitro cell study, Luminaria Digitata , an ocean-grown algae that is in this hard- working mist, protests environmentally exposed skin offers 100% protection from tobacco smoke.
Lipid peroxide- the main free radical that destroys skin's barrier- triples 24 hours after skin is exposed to the smoker from just 1 cigarette.
White tea extract in Pollution Solution Mist neutralizes 55-75% of lipid peroxide.
Gray, Sallow. Sow to respond: Oxygen Boosting Complex Two forms of corn extract and ergothioneine increase ATP production to energize as it corrects gray, sallow skin tone.
Loss of Firmness, increased wrinkles: Advanced Firming Complex Matrixyl peptides smooth wrinkles as much 68% in 2-6 months, and algae peptides help increase skin firmness by 20% and reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles by 27%.
Blackheads: TripleC& E comlex replaces C&E depleted from the skin and protection from blackheads.
