Which Method of Exfoliation is Best?

June 12, 2018 - 8:12am

You read over and over again about how important exfoliation is. There are lots of different methods; which is the right one?

Exfoliation is anything that encourages skin to let go of dead cells. It’s categorized two ways: mechanical exfoliation and chemical exfoliation.

Mechanical exfoliation is any method that uses rubbing or scrubbing.

Chemical exfoliation is any kind of exfoliation in which an acid or enzyme is used.

I like a little bit of both but it depends on what I’m trying to accomplish and for whom.

Ten Beautiful Years

June 5, 2018 - 8:13am

It’s a special week for me. My beautiful Results baby is ten years old.

Ten years ago, Quentin and I opened Results. We were terrified. Would people come? I worried. Maybe I should go get a real normal people.

People came.

Today, I’m proud to say that I still have some regular clients from ten years ago. It simply bakes my brain when I think of this.

Bigger, Better, Faster, More: the Pursuit of Perfect Products

June 1, 2018 - 7:59am

So many products. So many brands. Such easy access, like never before in the history of the world! 

You can sip your chardonnay, in your comfy jam-jams, read skincare product reviews and click, click, buy!

Here's what I told Chris, this Monday morning, on CKBI radio, "With skincare products, if it ain't broke, don't fix it."

Yes, a Skincare Specialist, telling you not to buy more skincare products. I know, it sounds crazy.

Skincare can be simple. 

Choosing is hard because there are thousands - truly, thousands of skincare products to choose from now.

Tina Fey’s Take on Beauty

May 18, 2018 - 8:49am

Tina Fey turns 48 this week. I wondered if she had any beauty secrets. What I got was a good laugh and a great perspective.

Here’s Tina Fey’s take on the current beauty ideal: “Now every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spnish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asisan skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, the hips of a nine year old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama. The only person who comes close to achieving this is Kim Kardashian, who was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes.”

Colds and Beautiful Skin Have This in Common

May 7, 2018 - 4:01pm

Spring is a time for cleaning, birds chirping, tulips blooming, and colds. 

Don’t despair; your skin benefits when you care for your cold.

Your strong immune system and beautiful skin have a lot in common. They both love antioxidants.  hey both love fruit and vegetables. They both hate sugar.

Spring time colds are very common. If you get one, don’t despair. The care that you give to your cold has a beautiful skin side effect.

Get Your Face Grad Ready

May 2, 2018 - 8:19am

Male or female, Grad or attending a Grad, young or old, you want to look and feel fabulous for Grad.

First case scenario: skin needs clearing. One of my signature treatments is Cosmetic Grade Cold Laser combined with Microdermabrasion.  I can use this combination to clean up acne or acne scarring on the face, back or chest.

Second case scenario: you look tired or just plain old. Another one of my most frequently requested treatments, Exilis, performs dramatic age reversal on the face or neck.

Spring Skin Sun Protection

April 23, 2018 - 9:09am

Spring has finally sprung. People are itching to get out into the yard. We’ll review some sun protection tips today so you’ll look fabulous for your age tomorrow.

 Take shade breaks. I’m not suggesting you live in the basement. Do, however, take short breaks from your face, neck and upper chest being in full sunlight – even if you’re wearing sunscreen. Your collagen will thank you down the road.

Use vitamin C. Eat it. Wear it in a skincare product at bed time. Vitamin C promotes collagen production and undoes sun damage.

Spring Cleaning your Skincare Products

April 10, 2018 - 10:33am

Change of season means warmer temperatures. This is a great time to do an audit on your skincare products. Here’s how to do it.

Warmer temperatures might mean a change in skincare products. Skin might feel greasy or oily now even if it didn’t during the depths of winter. 

Just as we don’t wear a tank top all year long or just a turtle neck sweater, our skin may need different products depending on the season. If you are feeling greasy or oily, it might be time to switch to a lighter weight in your skincare products, just as you adjust your clothing.
