Why Worry About pH Levels & Your Skin?

You always hear “pH Balanced for Skin”, but what does that actually mean to you and your breakouts?  I remember learning about pH and acidity in high school, but now I have learned about it’s importance in skin care products. When skin is taken outside of its natural pH levels of 4.5 to 5.5 (on a scale of 0 to 14), it no longer has the ability to defend itself from pollution, fungus, and other bacteria. This is also the…

Skin Benefits of Raw Honey

Before my wedding, I broke out all over my face–a bride’s worst nightmare. I immediately went to a local spa which offers natural product facials for help. Knowing I had days before the big event, the aesthetician recommended I use raw honey to gently heal my acne. This sounded too bizarre to be true, so I asked her a ton of questions and then decided to try it. It should be noted that not all honey is created equal. Most…

Having been in skin for years, I find that Rosacea is one of the most frustrating skin disorders to treat.

Over time more serious signs appear, such as visible blood vessels or broken capillaries and thickening of the skin. Here’s how to recognize if your symptoms are actually Rosacea: Does the redness primarily affect one or…

I have done extensive research and lectures on Hyperpigmentation and when it comes right down to it, sun spots, age spots and pregnancy mask are just different names for those annoying brown patches that appear the surface of the skin.

In simple terms; within the skin, hair and eyes there are cells called the Melonocytes; these cells produce…

Facial Toners: Are They Necessary?

They’re advertised and touted as “needed”. Skin kits demand that you purchase ALL the products for perfect skin. Real life sets in. You’re tired. It’s late. We have all been there.

However, if you’re using the correct cleanser or washing with a Clarisonic Skin Care Brush, all your makeup should be gone with…

Aminogenesis DermaScyne 2: Product Review

I broke away from my beloved Aminogenesis Photolagen-AGF to try out the new, premiere Aminogenesis product, DermaScyne 2. Aminogenesis claims DermaScyne 2 will increase collagen production by 400%. That’s one hefty claim and, after the miraculous job Photolagen-AGF did on my skin, it was a tall order to fill. I used DermaScyne regularly for 6 weeks, but I didn’t see any difference in my skin as compared to when I was using Photolagen-AGF. It wasn’t as plumping to the skin….

Aminogenesis Cocoon: Product Review

When I heard the word Cocoon, I pictured a thick, heavy cream. I discovered that Aminogenesis means something entirely different: the name cocoon is illustrative of this lotion’s moisturizing abilities and its ability to reveal the soft, supple skin underneath. Aminogenesis Cocoon is the original product of the Aminogenesis line. It’s a white, fairly light lotion that contains 17 amino acids. It’s an excellent moisturizer that doesn’t make your skin feel sticky or leave a residue, and it absorbs very…

Does Aminogenesis Really Work?

I am a big fan of the entire Aminogenesis Skin Care line. The products are moisturizing; they’re mostly in serum form, meaning they’re pure and easy for your skin to absorb; and fabulous at fighting aging. The entire line is built upon peptides (also called amino acids/proteins) which are natural building-blocks for the skin. They draw moisture to the cells and help with repair. Vitamin C and peptides are the essential beginnings to any skin care routine. (Check out I’m…

Why You Need To Incorporate Masks & Peels Into Your Skin Care Routine

Much of young, beautiful skin is about exfoliating and moisturizing. Once you exfoliate, you reveal, younger, newer skin beneath – that is what gives your skin that “glow”. The best way to maximize the products you already use (and the results) is to incorporate masks or peels into your routine. Even if you use the best products, your skin needs to be exfoliated periodically so that fresh, new skin can surface. Use a facial scrub every other day to exfoliate,…

Aminogenesis Photolagen-AGF: Product Review

I wish Aminogenesis Photolagen well-known because more people should be using it. Deeply moisturizing, light and extremely effective, I recommend this product to most of our clients. Aminogenesis Photolagen-AGF is amino acids, the natural building blocks of the skin that work to moisturize. (Two or more amino acids linked together is a peptide.) Photolagen is a gel-like serum. Serums don’t sit on the skin like most lotions. As a serum, the amino acids actually penetrate the skin and attract moisture…
