Why Facials Aren’t Just for Women

You probably know women who get routine facials as a pampering afternoon for themselves, but facials have a lot of benefits other than just being a relaxing escape. Facials can greatly benefit everyone — men, women, and teens. There are a lot of reasons that you should be getting a regular facial to protect your skin.

Decrease Breakouts

Later in life, men have a much harder time with acne breakouts than women. Middle-aged men have as many acne problems as teenagers, in some cases. This is due to the changes in hormones as you age. Getting regular facials will help keep your skin clean, exfoliated, and oil free. And your pores will be unclogged, so that breakouts are decreased or stopped altogether. There are specific facial treatments for oily or acne prone skin, and these are the treatments you should consider if you have this issue. Read More

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

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.

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.

Shave the Age from Your Face with Dermaplaning

Thick, radiant hair might be a great asset on the top of the head, but excess hair on the face itself is definitely not something that women desire. Thin “peach fuzz” hairs grow naturally on the face, but some women find that theirs are especially bothersome.

Protect Your Skin and Eyes the Right Way this Summer

Sun protection is critically important every day of the year, particularly during the strong, hot Florida summer! Remember that it’s not just your skin that needs to be protected, but your eyes as well. This guide will help you determine the best ways to keep your skin and eyes shielded from the sun’s wicked UV rays.

A Quick UV Ray Breakdown

The sun’s rays aren’t all the same. UVA, UVB, UVC, and HEV rays are all dangerous to your health in different ways. To begin with, UVC rays are the highest-energy UV rays and pose the most danger to your eyes, which is why the atmosphere’s ozone is intended to block all UVC rays. Unfortunately, as pollution and other environmental problems threaten the ozone layer more and more, you need to prepare your own protection methods to supplement the ozone’s. UVB rays, on the other hand, are actually the rays of the sun responsible for stimulating the production of melanin to tan the skin. People love this effect, but over time UVB rays accumulate to increase the risk of cancer and prematurely age the skin. Read More
