Four Steps to Set Back the Clock

This Sunday we set the clock forward, to signal the long awaited coming of spring. High time to set eyes on green rather than dirty white!

Mature skin showing winter damage needs its own clock set back, not forward. Coming out of hybernation mature skin is in need of special care and the following 4 step program goes a long way to help renew and rejuvenate.                                         dreamstime_xs_11675419

1. Exfoliate to get rid of accumulated dead, dry cells. This will also brighten the complexion and refine the skin texture. Apply a nourishing mask.

2. Cleanse and Tone daily using revitalizing products.

3. Apply Day & Night regenerating and lifting creams.

4. Repeat Step 1 every 2 weeks.

This month we suggest treatment products by Payot-Paris and Ilike Organic Skin Care.

Step 1. Yogurt Power Peel followed by Rich Carrot Mask by Ilike Organic Skin Care

Step 2. Fraicheur Cleanser/Toner by Payot-Paris or Rose Petal Milk/Toner by Ilike Organic.

Step 3. Perform Lift Day/Night/Neck by Payot-Paris or Glycolic Medlar Treatment by Ilike  Organic Skin Care.

Over and above the 4 steps, we recommend a special step which does not involve any product. Instead of working on the skin, this routine was specially developed by Dr.Payot to work on the facial muscles, just like going to the gym for the face.

In conjunction with high quality products it is very helpful to practice facial exercises, just like going to the gym will enhance the results of a good diet.

We hope you make use of these suggestions and enjoy spring time looking your best.

Moisturizers for Oily Skin

Summer is splendid, but oily skin finds it difficult to handle, what with moisturizers and sunscreen, plus make up. It can be very stressing, trying to tone down the shine.

Over the years I had many clients complain that their oily skin became even oilier once they used a moisturizer. The problem is not the skin, just that the product they use is not designed for their skin type, which is oily.

A little anatomy here will help understanding this topic.

Our skin contains a lot of water, which is needed for keeping the skin molecules plump and the interstitial fluid (the “soupy” liquid which surrounds the molecules) at a liquid consistency. We lose water content through moving and generally functioning as living beings. For the body to function well we need to replace the water content. Since water is vital to normal life, the famous 8 glasses we drink are going to go everywhere in the body and the skin is last on the destination list, which means the skin does not necessarily get enough for its needs. This is the reason for using topical moisturizers.

The second important ingredient in the skin beside water is sebum (oil). Sebum is produced by glands located in the skin and its job is to protect the skin from environmental elements, such as dust, bacteria, pollen, etc.

Sebum creates a very thin film on the skin and gives it its “dewy” look.

The sebaceous glands sometimes produce too much sebum and this results in an “oily skin”.

Having an oily skin does not mean the skin needs no water.

When choosing a moisturizer we need to pay attention to which type of skin the moisturizer is for.

Moisturizing cream for oily skin is water based.The moisturizing cream for oily skin is light in texture and will penetrate easily, leaving no film on the skin.

Choosing the right moisturizing cream for oily skin ensures your skin gets hydrated without any negative side effect.

Allowing oily skin to become dehydrated will only result in premature wrinkles, not a very desirable result.

Here are a few Oily Skin Moisturizers we like:

Tropo by Gernetic, Mixed & Oily by Gernetic, Hydra-Matt Fluid by Sothys, Sulphuric Whip Moisturizer by Ilike Organic Skin Care, Oil-Free Moisturizer by Peter Thomas Roth and Clariphase Day/Night Cream by France Laure.
