As a top rated LA based Medical Esthetician, I have over 11 years of experience. I have taken countless classes and worked in Medi Spas, Resort Spas and Plastic surgery centers. With my expansive knowledge in skin care and cutting edge technology I am here to ensure you make the right Beauty Call.
So let’s start with my Beauty Call Basics….
#1. HYDRATE :: The first and most important thing for the health of your skin is H2O. Our skin is our largest organ so it’s important we drink the amount we need for our skin. You can take your body weight and times it by .66 to give you exactly how many ounces you need for your body. This ensures you’re flushing out problem causing toxins and helps keep the skin decongested. If your skin is drinking up your moisturizer, then your’e probably dehydrated from the inside.
#2. EXFOLIATE, EXFOLIATE, EXFOLIATE!!! :: We shed thousands of skin cells every day. It’s so important to stimulate and help the renewal process of your skin. The more you exfoliate the faster you generate new skin with less damage. I use DNA Medi Clear Cleansing Pads (Mention this article during your visit, and receive 10% off on DNA Medi Clear!). They are gentle yet very effective for all skin types. For those of you that need beauty on a budget, try using your towel right out of the shower and buff till its slightly pink. If you have breakouts be sure to wash your face right after.
#3. PROTECT :: Depending on age and skin type, you need to choose products that address your skin’s needs. Vitamin A & C are essential in any skin care regime. A is more healing than E and increases cell turnover for optimal anti aging while C helps to strengthen capillaries, detox free radicals, lighten pigmentation and promote collagen. It also helps to defend against the sun. Don’t forget about SPF! The sun oxides your skin accelerating the aging process & can cause pigmentation that wont show up for years down the road.
Hope this help you understand the basic maintaince of your skin. Stay tuned for all my tips and tricks of the trade.
