Sweep away spider veins for good with this in-office procedure

Many short dresses have been ruined by these thread-like clusters. Caused by injury, genetics, pregnancy, or simply aging, what we call spider veins are actually broken blood vessels. Injections (sclerotherapy) can help reduce there appearance, but if you’re needle-shy, consider laser treatment. One laser in particular (a V-beam) sends a strong burst of light through the skin, breaking up spider veins nonsurgically. They are then reabsorbed, and the treated cluster is gone for good.Read More >

Scarring? Let’s make a thing of the past

From mild acne scars along the temple and cheekbones to keloid tissue, most people have imperfections they would like to eliminate.

Not only this, but the appearance of acne scars increases as we age due to lower levels of collagen production. Luckily technological advances have given us several laser treatments that are proven to help reduce or even eliminate scarring.Read More >

OTC retinoids and prescription retinoids: what’s the difference?

In a word: purity. A concentrated form of vitamin A, retinoids increase cell turnover and boost collagen production, leaving skin radiant and smooth. Products you can find in beauty stores like Sephora or Space NK are over-the-counter (OTC), and will contain formulations like retinol and retinyl palmitate. These are not pure forms of retinoic acid—rather, they convert to retinoic acid once they’ve been absorbed by your skin. Read More >

Is rosacea leaving skin sensitive? Shake things up with powder cleansers

Powdered cleansers – like mineral makeups – use lightweight and finely ground ingredients to transformative effects. With just a drop of water, they create a smooth paste that acts as a gentle cleanser and exfoliant. While good for all skin types, powdered cleansers are especially effective for those with rosacea, as their fine texture and mix of minerals, botanicals, and enzymes can soothe as well as clean the skin.

Are hats the root of your sudden breakouts?

As cold weather approaches, hats once again are becoming a must-have accessory.  But if you notice the arrival of hat weather has coincided with the arrival of sudden breakouts around your hairline and forehead, don’t worry! There’s hope. Because hats can trap sweat and bacteria against your skin, you may need to switch to something that’s a bit looser. If your hat is knit, wash it often, and if all else fails, switch to earmuffs or scarves.

When applied to your skin, they are absorbed quickly, reinforcing the natural moisture barrier. So try a moisturizer enhanced with ceramide, and we guarantee you’ll fall in love with the instant glow.

Want soft skin without the breakouts? It’s time to ditch the masks

If you’re over 30 and still using drying anti-oil masks in your beauty routine, it might be time to pause for some serious reflection. While they may have worked in your teenage years, these masks might be too harsh for adult skin, which may overdry and break out. Keep skin soft and radiant with exfoliation instead, or use masks that ADD hydration instead of removing it.
