This is the beginning of anything you want it to be…
As a skincare therapist I am often asked by clients what the best skincare regimen is to maintain optimal skin health. The answer to this question is multifaceted because although I could educate my clients to follow a multi-step routine, I realize that life sometimes doesn’t allow for that commitment and expense! The best regimen is the one you are going to follow, the one that fits into your lifestyle and becomes habitual like brushing your teeth or washing your hair. The bare minimum you should be doing for skin health each day is cleansing and moisturizing twice a day. It is also essential to use an SPF on your face year round! Keep in mind that even incidental sun exposure can cause damage.

BIOPEEL…A must have winter treat for your skin!!
So you’ve probably heard the buzz about Dermalogica’s Biopeel service. As a skin care therapist, I cannot express to you the amazing results I am seeing when performing this service. Chemical Peels have been a popular skin treatment for years, and for good reason, when done correctly they can produce substantial, visible results. Lightened pigmentation and acne scarring, softening of fine lines and wrinkles, improved overall texture and elasticity…just to name a few!! Unfortunately, not all peels are created equal!! The effectiveness of a peel depends on a number of factors: skin health, how the skin is prepped and primed, how and where the peel is applied, the number of layers, the pH and peeling agents used. Biopeel is a 4 step peel process that includes prepping and priming the skin in step 1. Step 2 and step 3 are the application of the acids used in the peel which are salicylic acid, lactic acid and TCA. They work together to break apart the bonds that hold the skin cells together, coagulate the proteins, and finally dissolve the proteins. Step 4 is the decelerator which completes the treatment and restores the skin back to its natural pH!! The restoration of the skin’s pH back to its natural state is a pioneer movement in the world of peels, exclusive to Dermalogica’s Biopeel!
