Skin Pigmentation: What Causes Changes and How to Treat It

Wrinkles aren’t the only imperfection that will give away your age.  Pigmentation is also a significant concern, especially after a long, hot Florida summer. What exactly is skin pigmentation, and how can you treat it effectively to rejuvenate your complexion? Here’s everything you need to know.

What Is Skin Pigmentation?

Skin pigmentation develops when the sun’s harmful rays, especially UVA rays, stimulate your skin’s pigment cells to manufacture pigment called melanin. While melanin can help your skin look glowing and tan after a week-long vacation, it can also accumulate into unwanted dark patches along your skin.

Some signs of skin pigmentation develop quickly, but others take years – or even decades – to become visible. The best ways to prevent skin pigmentation include using a full-spectrum sunblock, nourishing your skin and body with antioxidant-rich foods, and avoiding prolonged periods in the sun. If it’s too late for prevention, the following treatments can reverse your existing skin pigmentation blotches. Read More

Are You Ready For the Holidays? Let’s Talk About Permanent Makeup

You apply your makeup in the morning and clean it off at night, day after day, year after year. Most women accept this repetitive routine as the norm, but it doesn’t have to be! If you want to enjoy the flawless appearance of your favorite makeup without any maintenance, permanent makeup is the solution you’ve been waiting for.

As the holiday season rolls around, it’s the perfect time to use permanent makeup to enhance your appearance and impress your friends and family.

What Is Permanent Makeup?

Permanent makeup is cosmetic tattooing. Your choice of pigment is applied to add definition to your face. You can choose permanent makeup in the form of lip liner, eyeliner, hair strokes, and much more.

Unlike regular makeup, permanent makeup does not wear away over the day or with water. The ink used in permanent makeup remains in the skin for up to 9 years at a time. Since ink can be applied in such a wide variety of colors, shades, and hues, there is virtually no limit to the ways that permanent makeup can help you look like the best version of yourself.
