I just want to say “Thank You”

The power behind this holiday is linked to the “Giving” of Thanks and it is my desire to share my gratitude with you.  I am taking these moments on this blog to share how grateful I am to my clients.

Fall Skin Care Tips

3 Easy Tips for Transitioning your Skin Care Routine During Fall

As you may have noticed, the leaves have changed and we are officially in the season-Fall.  Therefore, I would like to assist you in keeping your skin looking flawless without interruption by the seasons.  These 3 tips should help you make a smooth skincare transition:

1. Invest in the Proper Cleanser.
Cleansers do not come in One Size Fits All (seasons).  People like to tell you they do, especially if you are purchasing over the counter (OTC) products.  That’s how those OTC manufacturers make their money.  You may have heard me say this… the thing about professional skincare products is that they have smaller molecules so they’re better able to penetrate the skin and give you the best results.

The reason you come to a professional like me, is so we can give you a facial and determine your skin type; therefore, you should be seeing an aesthetician at least once every season.  You’ll need a facial for all four seasons: Fall, Winter, Spring, and Summer. Your skin will not always stay the same; it will change with the weather.  Unfortunately, if you invest in the wrong products for your skin type, it will throw your pH levels off and it will take a professional longer to get them back in balance.

2. Exfoliate, Exfoliate, Exfoliate
Remember, we are currently in the season of Fall and we are headed into the winter season, so your skin will get dryer and the skin cells will build-up.  This is when you will want to exfoliate.  You may exfoliate daily as long as you vary your exfoliants by using a light enzyme, a light acid, and a light manual scrub.  If you don’t know what I am talking about or you are not familiar with these terms, please either leave comments or contact us directly.

EBPB Brown Sugar exfSide note: For those who are pregnant – since the skin is sensitive and even more-so with a little one inside you – you will want to exfoliate with brown sugar.

 

 

3. Moisturize
Moisturize with the proper moisturizer. If you have oily skin – please do not use an oil-based moisturizer.  Make sure you get a moisturizer that has a water base.  If you have dry skin, use a more emollient moisturizer.  However, if you don’t know your skin type, contact us at the Day Spa and we will answer your questions and take care of your needs.

Resetting PH Balance for Flawless Skin

EBPB Toner 1

We’ve been trying to keep our posts simple as we answer your skincare questions.  Now, let’s talk about Toners and Fresheners.

Let’s start with toners:

The purpose of a toner is to reset your pH balance.  It is not supposed to cleanse your face and you should not be using a toner daily.  If you use a toner every day, you are upsetting your pH balance and when you upset your pH balance; your body will respond to correct it.

Question: Porsche, How often should I use a toner?

Answer: Using your toner once per week is perfect and that’s because you just want to reset your pH balance.

There is a difference between a toner and a freshener.

Important:  For those who have acne or scaly skin, you may want to use a toner that usually will have an alcohol base, but your best toner ever – will be Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV).

Yes, right from the kitchen!  Don’t get me wrong, you can give me your money if you’d like, I have a gentle cleanser in my Semblance line – or you can go and buy some ACV and say thank you Porsche for saving me some money.

Apple Cider Vinegar is the best toner for skin types including deeply myelinated skin.  However, for myelinated skin (most of the time) no matter how dark, all you truly need is a Freshener.

A Freshener helps reset your pH levels and hydrates your skin.  Witch Hazel is a freshener, but a lot of people think it’s a toner.  Witch Hazel adds hydration to your skin.

Skin concerns like hyperpigmentation come from not hydrating properly.  In your skincare routine you want to: Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate.  That’s when you use a freshener instead of a toner.

Yes… Witch Hazel – that stuff grandma used.  You can probably buy a 32 oz container, for about $1.50, in a dollar store.  Witch Hazel, found near the alcohol, is similar to alcohol (it has many uses) but it’s not alcohol.  Witch hazel hydrates 10 times better than water – so, Witch Hazel is the best.

EBPB Light bulbFor myelinated skin, try to use something organic and try something light.  You don’t need skincare products that are harsh or strong because if your skincare products are too strong, your body will over produce oils trying to fix it.  Then when you use products to strip the oils, you may end up with hyperpigmentation.  Don’t fight your body,  let it do what it’s supposed to do and then just make sure your cleanser and everything is right for your skin.

EBPB Light bulbFor sensitive skin, Witch Hazel is perfect for sensitive skin. However, if you have sensitive skin and you use the ACV, it may work like a chemical peel and actually burn your skin.  So, be careful with that too.  If you think you have sensitive skin, use Witch Hazel.

Final Note:

If you wash your face and then use a toner or freshener, and there is dirt on the pad (that you’re using for the toner) – you need a new cleanser… your cleanser is not good.  Please purchase a new cleanser.  My Semblance product line has a cleanser for you. The line is loaded with organic skincare products to help keep your skin looking flawless.
