5 Ways to Reduce Hyperpigmentation

hyperpigmentationOne of the unsightly effects of sun damage is the hyperpigmentation and sun spots it often leaves behind. The sun’s ultraviolet rays and other environmental stressors like free radicals are fierce scavengers that cause discoloration! Aging can play a role as well. Fortunately, this frustrating condition is not something we have to live with. Just like how facial exercises offer a nonsurgical alternative to preventing and smoothing wrinkles, there are ways to naturally improve discoloration.

Read on for tips on fading hyperpigmentation and sun spots so you feel more comfortable in your skin.\

1. Retinol Products

Products like Retinol Skin Conditioner are ideal for reducing the appearance of hyperpigmentation. This product is a best-seller because it exfoliates the skin gently and removes the discolored cells that cause sun spots and discoloration. Unlike other harsh retinoid products, Retinol Skin Conditioner does this without causing redness and irritation. Regular use also boosts collagen production, which helps maintain the skin’s flexibility and elasticity.

2. Vitamin C Serum

Vitamin C is an antioxidant that helps lighten and brighten skin by decreasing the number of sun-damaged skin cells. It also imparts a healthy glow and stimulates collagen production. Our High Density C Serum is an excellent choice for brightening your complexion while fading hyperpigmentation. For optimum results, apply to your face and all areas of your body that are exposed to the sun.

3. Eat an Antioxidant-Rich Diet

Another way to fight off hyperpigmentation is to eat a diet packed with antioxidants like vitamin C, beta-carotene and lycopene. These goods combat damage from the sun and free radicals, while reducing inflammation. Many clients also take an Ester-C supplement as well.

4. Brightening Cream

Consistent use of products like our Brightening Cream helps fade hyperpigmentation. If you have sensitive skin, avoid aggressive products with hydroquinone. They can cause irritation and even darken spots that you’re trying to lighten.

5. Avoid Overheating

Avoid getting overheated. When skin temperature rises this stimulates melanin, which leads to the formulation of darkened skin cells. If you’re outside in summer heat or feel hot after working out, apply a cool compress to your skin to bring its temperature down.

5 Reasons to Start Dry Brushing

dry brushingSpring is officially here, which means a lot of us are starting to think about working on our summer bodies. There is no better time to kick start your body sculpting routine. One of the best ways to achieve a more toned, smooth appearance is with a daily dry brushing regimen. It’s the perfect complement to exercise and the No Lipo Lipo program. It’s safe, natural and effective—so forget the idea of risky surgical procedures like liposuction.

Dry brushing takes only a few minutes a day but the results are incredible. Read on to learn about some of the awesome benefits!

1. A Rosy, Youthful Glow

Dry brushing exfoliates skin so that you shed dead skin cells like crazy. It also improves circulation and the flow of oxygen-rich blood to your skin cells. This imparts radiance to the skin, a brighter complexion and a rosy, youthful glow

2. Detox

Dry brushing boosts the lymphatic system, which is responsible for eliminating toxins from your body. This helps you eliminate waste faster and is what contributes to the body sculpting and weight loss effects of this technique. When toxins build up, we gain weight and can develop illnesses.

3. Smoother Skin

The level of exfoliation achieved with dry brushing diminished the dead skin cells that makes skin appear dull and feel rough. It unclogs pores and expedites cell turnover so that your skin is softer and smoother. Your skin will also be less prone to breakouts.

4. Diminished Cellulite

The stimulation of both circulation and the lymphatic system leads to firmer, smoother skin. This helps diminish the appearance of cottage-cheese like bumps under the skin aka cellulite.

5. Better Health

Dry brushing has been shown to release endorphins, which promotes a better mood. It also stimulates digestion and healthy kidney function. A regular routine will help you be a better, healthier version of yourself!

How To Reduce the Appearance of Acne Scars 500 333 Facercise

How To Reduce the Appearance of Acne Scars

retinol skin conditionerOne of the worst things about acne is the marks and scarring they leave behind. They linger on and sometimes never go away. When our skin is inflamed, there is typically a mark left behind while the skin heals. This can go away over time, but if there is collagen damage, permanent scarring can occur in the form of keloids or depressed pores that look like an indentation.

Here are a few ways to reduce this unsightly condition.

Prevent Breakouts

This is probably the best way to avoid acne marks and scars. Follow an antioxidant-rich diet to reduce inflammation and avoid the refined sugars and simple carbs that promote the growth of the bacteria that causes acne.

Don’t Pick

We know you’ve heard this many times before, but don’t pick! This is the fastest way to leaving permanent scars after the breakout heals. Get a facial with a licensed, experienced professional aesthetician if you really need extractions.

Wear Sunscreen

The sun’s powerful UV rays can darken breakout marks while they’re healing. This can make their appearance stick around longer. Wear sunscreen every single day, rain or shine to prevent this from happening.

Lighten and Brighten

Use a lightening product to fade scarring over time. There are many natural products you can find that have no side effects. One of our best-selling products is our Brightening Cream. It is enriched with vitamin C, a powerful brightening agent with a bevy of other benefits. Our Brightening Cream is also very effective at eliminating rosacea.

Retinol Products

Retinol products are excellent for removing the dark spots and keloids that acne leaves behind. Our Retinol Skin Conditioner is a super effective product for this issue! It promotes cell turnover and accelerates renewal, which fades the spots and hyperpigmentation caused by acne and sun damage. Our Retinol Skin Conditioner is a best-seller because its gentle formula works without causing irritation.

In-Spa Treatments

We offer two excellent treatments at Carole Maggio Day Spa that help reduce the appearance of acne scars: microdermabrasion and stem cell facials.

Tips for Using Retinol

facial exercisesOne of my best-selling products is my Retinol Skin Conditioner—and for good reason. In conjunction with daily facial exercises and a good skincare regimen, it can be one of the most powerful weapons in your anti-aging arsenal. It slows down aging by stimulating the production of collagen while boosting the turnover of epidermal cells to brighten your complexion and help prevent and exfoliate clogged pores. In turn this helps prevent acne and even out hyperpigmentation. Research has shown that retinol may even help reverse the formation of pre-cancerous cells in the dermis.

While everyone understands the potential of using retinol, many clients are concerned with using it the correct way. While my Retinol Skin Conditioner is very gentle, there are ways to avoid irritation and ensure effectiveness. If you are new to the product, build up its use slowly. If your skin is ultra-sensitive, you may want to use it every other night to start so that your skin develops a toleration. Once your skin adjusts, make sure to use it on a nightly basis.

Wash your face with a gentle cleanser—my Creamy Milk Cleanser is ideal for dry and normal skin, while my Pore Refinement Cleaner is perfect for oilier skin types. Your skin must be completely dry before applying retinol, so I recommend that my clients wait 20 to 30 minutes before application. All retinoids should only be used before bedtime, as they are inactivated when exposed to the light. Keep in mind that retinol can increase sensitivity to the sun, so it’s imperative to apply sunscreen after your regular skincare regimen (this is a must whether you are using retinoids or not).

With daily use of my Retinol Skin Condtioner, you will see results pretty quickly and will love the way your skin looks and feels. Click here for more information on my powerful facial exercises and skincare products.
