What's Inside

Calendula Oil provides anti-inflammatory properties to soothe, calm and nurture skin. Jojoba Oil is chemically one of the most similar oils to the natural oil the skin produces (sebum) making it bio-mimetic. Rosemary Leaf Extract provides antioxidant benefits as well as helping to invigorate microcirculation. Sunflower Oil consists primarily of triglycerides of linoleic acid (an essential fatty acid) and oleic acids. It contains lecithin, carotenoids, and waxes. Excellent emollient oil that prevents transepidermal water loss, inhibiting dryness and chapping. Vitamin E has excellent skin bioaffinity and is a powerful antioxidant that protects the skin from aging free radicals and environmental assaults.

Hand Rejuvenation

August 31st, 2017 • Posted by Lupe Guthrie • Permalink

The Latest Hand Rejuvenation Skin Care Treatments

Our hands reveal a lot –– oftentimes too much. Despite our best attempts to keep the skin healthy, the hands tend to make us appear older than we actually are. Over time, collagen deteriorates, hyperpigmentation occurs, and the texture becomes coarser. Why does this occur?

Constant exposure to environmental aggressors, UV rays, detergents, water and being in constant use makes our hands more vulnerable to thin, wrinkly skin, dryness and age spots –– all the visual signs of aging. While clients may be using hand cream or getting regular manicures, the fact is that hands need daily support and rejuvenating treatments, just as the face does. With the right blend of treatment room remedies and home care, esthetic professionals can help clients restore their hands’ youthfulness.

Bringing the skin on the hands back to optimum health starts with the right ingredients. Using science and nature, it is possible to actively restore and reform youthful skin tissue by stimulating collagen production and cell turnover, brightening skin tone, smoothing coarse texture and rehydrating the skin.

Luckily, many of the ingredients that have proven effective for the face work for the hands.

Microdermabrasion is still one of the most popular, non-invasive modalities for rejuvenating the skin –– and it works well for the hands. To support its rejuvenating effects, enzymes and acids may be used before or after treatment, depending on desired results.

What Can Amino Acids Do For The Skin?

Discover How Amino Acids Are Key To Healthy And Youthful Skin

Amino acids are the building blocks of the skin, the human body and biological processes, so it’s no surprise that their role in the repair and rejuvenation of sun damage, acne, chemical peels and lasers is critical.

Equally as important is the development of a strategy to increase their presence daily so that maintenance of a youthful appearance is more possible.

Estheticians and physicians have the difficult task of deciding which peptides (combinations of amino acids), protein supplements (including collagen, an amino acid chain) and growth factors (complex amino acid chains) are most effective for skin health.

First, let’s take a look at the most important amino acids in terms of skin health. The following partial list includes amino acids in their order of importance based on quantities found in human skin: lysine, proline, alanine, hydroxyproline, glutamic acid, arginine, aspartic acid, serine, lysine, leucine, threonine and phenylalanine.
