Seasonal Skin Changes ~ Winter Edition

x

Once again Calgary we are at the crossroads of a season change. Jack Frost is biting at our cheeks outside and our indoors our heating is also completely dehydrating our skin. We just can’t seem to escape our drying environment (unless we get on a flight to Hawaii) this time of year. Just like we spoke about in our fall blog, we have very different needs for different seasons. That need in a Calgary winter is protecting our skin’s barrier and to fight against dehydration from the elements.

x

 It is commonly brought to our attention here in the clinic that people are feeling tight, flakey and chapped but often still shiny and oily as soon as winter hits. That is because Calgary has very low humidity in the air come November. We will focus on ingredients to aid in the protection of our skin’s barrier in one of our harshest seasons. Our spotlight ingredients for winter are Hyaluronic Acid (hydration) and Essential Fatty Acids or Lipids (nourishment) to keep our skin healthy.

x

The Importance of Using Hyaluronic Acid

No matter your skin type, whether it be oily/acne prone or dry/dehydrated; Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is a must have for our winters. People often get confused by the difference between a big drink of water for the skin (HA) and nourishment for the skin (lipids/oils). If you have been to SkinScience for one of our consultations you have probably seen our cranberry experiment. We take dried cranberries and soak them in both oil and water for a few weeks/months. In the end the cranberries soaked in oil are unchanged; hence oils don’t hydrate or ‘plump’ the skin. The cranberries soaked in water are returned to their original state; plump and juicy! This is what we want for our skin. Keeping our HA levels robust will not only protect our skin barrier but with help fight against the early signs of aging such as fine lines and wrinkles.

x

The Importance of Using Natural BioLipids

Lipids/oils are equally important to protect our skin’s barrier in a Calgary winter. Some people produce enough oils naturally but if you are a true dry skin type, you may feel like you need some extra nourishment and hydration when the snow starts flying. If you are someone who spends a lot of time outdoors skiing, snowboarding or whatever brings you out into the elements, you will want to give some extra love to your wind whipped skin. Below are our top sellers at SkinScience by skin type/condition to fight back against Jack Frost.

How To Get Holiday-Ready Skin

xmas

Holiday party season is amongst us!

xmas

Well Calgary, did we even get a fall? The leaves are gone and the bare bones trees and cold blowing snow are the first reminders to get Holiday Party Ready! With the colder and drier weather, our spirits are not the only thing that needs a little brightening; our skin very likely needs a good sparkle too! Let’s look forward to brightening our spirits with all the beautiful decorations, sparkling snow and get party ready skin with a chemical peel for a radiant glow! (Did that rhyme?)

xmas

Did you know that there are different levels of chemical peels? Often people whom are misinformed (thanks Samantha from Sex and the City! Did we just age ourselves!?)  shy away from this type of procedure prior to an event. Now don’t get us wrong, there are definitely some skin conditions that require a more aggressive and deeper peel; leaving the skin raw and peeling, but there are also more superficial peels that leave the skin refined and glowing. This is what we’re talking about for a pre-party treatment. Not only do we have a few that will leave the skin smooth and radiant but with over 18 peels to choose from here at SkinScience, we can customize one for your specific needs even the most sensitive of skin types. 

xmas

Chemical Peel – A chemical peel is when a specific acid such as AHA/ BHA’s or an enzyme is applied to the skin to help reduce various skin concerns such as pigmentation, scarring, fine lines and wrinkles and red or dull complexions. Professional chemical peels can range from light peels with little to no downtime, to deeper peels with downtime of a week in most cases.

xmas

Today we are going to focus on our most popular surface exfoliating peels to reveal your skin’s sparkle. 

xmas

This is a list of our top 4 pre-party peels from mild to moderate with minimal to no downtime;

xmas

Organic Enzyme Peel – this is an enzyme based peel with pineapple and papaya. Not only does it smell like a tropical holiday but it is also organic. This is our most gentle peel that reduces inflammation, is full of antioxidant protection and gently resurfaces for a radiant glow.

The Signature Facelift – With 30% L-Ascorbic Acid this is great for brightening, inflammation, acne/acne scars, rosacea, antioxidant protection, firming the skin and creating a dewy glow.

C-Infusion Resurfacer – This antioxidant resurfacer brightens and revitalizes resistant skin as it removes layers of sluggish skin cells. Vitamin C, Glycolic and a plethora of plant extracts infuse the skin tissues with antioxidants and hydrating properties to contribute to barrier repair.

Lactic Acid Resurfacer – Ideal for sun damage, melasma and sensitized skin condition like rosacea, this 30% lactic acid resurfacer is active while gentle for an even skin tone. Paired with sodium hyaluronate, this treatment is the ultimate cellular humectant (yay for Calgarians). An unrivaled moisture magnet, crafted to replenish dehydrated, dull skin.

xmas

Any of these amazing chemical peels can be done alone or added to another service. 

xmas

If you would like the ultimate pre-party resurfacing treatment, think about combining a chemical peel with a dermaplaning and LED red light.

xmas

Dermaplaning – Dermaplaning is a cosmetic procedure that removes the top layers of your skin by using a surgical blade to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, acne scarring, and pore size. It is also known as a great party ready procedure as it removes vellus hairs for a smoother makeup application and aides in the better absorption of products; including the peel, for a dewy glow. 

xmas

LED Red Light Therapy – LED red light, the wavelength of 630nm, known as ‘bio-active’ light can increase cellular activity, soothe inflammation and promote collagen. With the benefits of skin rejuvenation, increased skin elasticity, repair to damaged cells, refining pores and firming the skin, this anti-aging and highly anti-inflammatory treatment is a must have to calm more active procedures and inflammatory skin conditions.

xmas

If you want resurfacing with the added benefit of rehydration; think about adding a peel to a Medical Facial.

xmas

Medical Facial – Our medical facial is completely customized to you specific skins needs. We will choose appropriate products from one or all of our four pharmaceutical grade product lines that we carry here at SkinScience. As a finalist for “Best Medical Facial in Canada”, SkinScience is proud to offer the highest quality of professional medical facials. In this 15-step facial treatment, every step is adapted to your skin concerns and each patient has a personalized facial protocol designed for him/her.

xmas

Some of the concerns we address in our medical facials: pigmentation, rosacea, eczema, hydration, radiance, fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, skin texture and acne.

xmas

Adding a peel will boost the absorption of these products for an amazing luster to enhance your skins natural sparkle.

xmas

As always, if you are unsure of what treatment would be best for you… give us a call here at SkinScience. It would give us great JOY to help customize a plan to get your skin holiday ready and brighten your spirits! We are always full of MERRIMENT and love nothing more than helping our patients with their skin needs.  Happy Holiday Party Season!

The Art of the Triple Cleanse ~ The New Way to Deep Clean Your Skin

cleansing

BOO!! Hello Calgary, now that we have your attention… have you ever heard of triple cleansing? With Halloween right around the corner, we need to think about the best possible costume and amazing makeup to win top prize at all the parties we will attend. An equally important detail to think about is our skincare routine for makeup removal! We don’t want to pay for one night of glory (Yay, first place!) with a month of clogging and/or breakouts (eeeeekkk, scary).

cleansing

Double cleansing is good but triple is better! High coverage makeup has more oils, silicones and waxes in it for better coverage. Better coverage means more clogged pores, especially if you are acne prone. A good removal regimen at the end of the day is always important but ESPECIALLY important when wearing high coverage or specialty (Halloween) makeup! Makeup removal is not the only reason we need a good evening cleanse; throughout the day, airborne bacteria, dirt, dust and pollution is attracted to your skin, and if they aren’t washed away properly, they could potentially contribute to aging, enlarged pores and breakouts (triple eeeeekkk).

cleansing

Here at SkinScience we like to do a triple cleanse. Your first cleanse is to remove makeup, the second to cleanse the skin and the third to exfoliate, unclog and refine your pores for better product absorption.

cleansing

If you’re still not sure what we’re talking about, triple cleansing involves using a cleanser that is oil-based, or a micellar water (for acne prone) first to break down makeup, primer, SPF and sebum on the surface of your skin. The first cleanse removes makeup primarily. Following it with a deeper water-based cleanser, a second round of cleansing will clean much deeper into the pores to remove any impurities such as sweat and bacteria. Then lastly for our third cleanse using an exfoliating scrub (make sure this is not a nutshell based!), to remove pollution, debris, and to promote skin renewal for brighter more refined skin and better product absorption.

cleansing

To make it easy we have broken it down into three skin type routines with some of our top selling products;

cleansing

Dry Skin

cleansing

  1. Dermaquest Facial Cleanser Stem Cell 3D – This creamy, rich foaming cleanser is the perfect start to your triple cleanse! Fortified with plant stem cells, amino acids and Neodermyl to gently remove makeup and impurities while, bathing your skin in an emollient lather for a renewed complexion. SHOP
  2. Dermaquest C Infusion Cleanser – Overflowing with antioxidants, this foaming cleanser purifies and preserves while slowing the effects of harmful free radicals. Feel refreshed and energized and primed for homecare products, without stripping essential moisture from your skin. SHOP
  3. Aliquote Skin Fresh Complexion Polisher – With diatomaceous minerals, vitamin c and essential oils, this gentle scrub peels away dead skin cells for a smoother, glowing texture. SHOP

cleansing

Oily/Combination Skin

cleansing

  1. Reversa Cleansing Micellar Water – Gently cleanses and effectively removes face and eye makeup and impurities while soothing ingredients such as lotus vegetal water and allantoin prevent irritation. SHOP
  2. Aliquote  Skin Fresh Complexion Cleanser – Micro-exfoliating cleanser with 2% salicylic acid at low PH enhances dead skin removal while unclogging pores and preventing acne . Antibacterial cold pressed coconut oil and aloe vera balances moisture levels for a clean hydrated finish. SHOP
  3. SkinCeuticals Micro-Exfoliating Scrub – This smoothing polish with hydrated silica cleanses pores and softens skin while promoting skin cell renewal. SHOP

cleansing

Sensitive Skin

cleansing

  1. Aliquote Skin Cashmere Cream Cleanser – Hydrating milk cleanser with lavender essential oil, aloe, and vitamin E. Gently removes makeup and impurities. Soothes redness and dryness. Suitable for face, neck and eyes. SHOP
  2. Aliquote Skin Detox Micellar Gelee – Gentle sulfate-free cleanser with chamomile essential oil and peptides soothes and hydrates normal to sensitive skin. Algae extract clears away makeup, debris, and pollution. SHOP
  3. Dermaquest Algae Polishing Scrub – This cooling scrub uses jojoba beads to remove excess skin cells through gentle exfoliation, leaving the skin smooth and prepped for better product absorption. Deeply hydrating, this scrub primes the skin while relaxing algae extract soothes inflammation. SHOP

cleansing

The first cleansing step is important to make sure you wash until there isn’t a single trace of makeup left. If you wear a lot of makeup, this could take 2-3 times, but if you’ve spent time putting makeup on, it makes sense to spend time taking it off, right? After all, a smooth canvas is best for makeup application and we need to keep our skin healthy.

cleansing

Once you’ve removed the surface grime, it’s time for a deep water-based cleanse – and that doesn’t mean a quick splash. Whether you are triple cleansing or not, make sure to massage your cleanser in for a minute to thoroughly remove toxins, pollution and product buildup. This is especially important if it is an enzyme- or acid-based cleanser, so it has time to perform properly (eating away dead skin cells) – even two minutes would be better.

cleansing

Taking at least a minute to do a water-based cleanse will ensure you gain all the benefits from your cleanser and its ingredients. On average, most people only spend about twenty seconds on cleansing, which isn’t enough time to massage the cleanser in properly.

cleansing

The third step of the triple cleanse should be performed 2-3 times per week. Exfoliation is essential for healthy skin, but needs to be performed gently as to not create unwanted (and pro-aging) inflammation.

cleansing

The temperature of the water matters, too. Too hot and you could risk irritating the skin,  especially if you suffer from acne or skin conditions such as rosacea, so it’s best to rinse with water that is lukewarm.

cleansing

Triple cleansing each evening will also brighten any dullness, adding the exfoliating cleanse into any routine will slough away the dead skin cells that are sitting on the surface and will allow serums and moisturizers to better absorb.

cleansing

Is it possible to over-wash your skin?

cleansing

While your skin needs to be cleansed twice a day – morning and evening – a triple cleanse isn’t always necessary – especially when you wake up in the morning.

cleansing

A single water-based cleanse in the AM will cleanse away the skin’s naturally produced oils and everything the skin has detoxed overnight. It will also better prepare your skin to absorb daily routine products. Over-washing can lead to dryness, sensitivity and irritation. The ideal cleanser should be non-stripping of the skins natural oils, and it’s important not to rub the skin too harshly.

cleansing

If you are using retinol or other forms of smart exfoliation to be left on the skin at night, it would be better to skip the scrub in the triple cleanse and replace it with the smart exfoliation on those evenings.

cleansing

With a triple cleanse you are sure to remove all makeup, pollution and debris, as well as keep the skin renewal process at its best for a clear, smooth and glowing complexion. Leave the scary face for Halloween! 

cleansing

If you are unsure of what cleansers and routine would be ideal for you, book in for our 60-Minute Skin Consultation! We will go through all your current products to see what is working, what isn’t and if there is anything missing. We look forward to seeing you soon!

SKIN DETOX FOR DEHYDRATED SKIN

skincare

Maybe blemishes aren’t a concern for you (lucky!). Maybe it was all the wine, beer and coffee that dehydrated your skin to look like a shrivelled raisin. The wine, combined with the cooler weather and indoor heating kicking in, may have left your skin feeling parched, tight and lackluster. This brings us to another major post-holiday concern – dehydration.

skincare

Looking in the mirror seeing all the crepe like fine lines is a tell-tale sign of dehydration. This is when the SKIN IS LACKING WATER not oil. This is commonly mistaken for dryness (lacking oil or lipids) in the skin. Your best bet here is an SOS mask containing high concentration of hyaluronic acid or vitamin B5 (Panthenol).  Our favorite two hydrating masks are safe for all skin types (yes, including acne prone skin). 

skincare

Dermaquest Hydrating Gel Mask

Formulated to hydrate and enhance elasticity, this mask features soothing lilac plant stem cell extract, water-binding hyaluronic acid, anti-aging MDI complex, evening primrose oil and nine botanicals and plant extracts to refresh, restore and protect dehydrated skin. This is a cooling and quenching treatment to replenish essential moisture in any skin type.

FIGHT THE ULTIMATE SKIN AGER – INFLAMMATION

skincare

As if blemishes, dehydration and lackluster skin wasn’t enough. Our bellies are bloated and we are puffy all over, including under our eyes. Our skin is inflamed and irritated, triggered by all the inflammatory foods we have treated ourselves to. Inflammation is a pro-aging in all tissues. Meaning, it is the main cause of some major aliments such as; joint pain, cardio vascular disease, gingivitis and acne to name a few. It is also known to accelerate skin aging. Well, time to treat ourselves again with some anti-inflammatory products! For an added boost perform a lymphatic drainage massage for the face and eyes to relieve puffiness. Don’t know how? We do!

With this knowledge, why only do SOS treatments post-holiday? Keep skin health going all year round. Following a healthy diet and regular intake of water is good for us internally and externally. However, our skin still needs topical products to prevent aggressors such as pollution and our indulgences in decadent foods every now and then. Maybe you suffered from more than one of these post-holiday aliments? Maybe you do year round?
