Peel Season Has Arrived!

‘Tis the season!  It’s that time of year to have fresh and glowing skin for the holidays and beyond. This is the perfect time of year to begin your series of peels!  We recommend doing at least a series of 6 peels to have the best results with your skin concerns.  Most clients are looking for the best anti-aging results possible. This week we will discuss peels that will focus on acne and anti-aging.

 

Why should you do a chemical peel?

The purpose of a chemical peel treatment is to remove surface proteins to help promote epidermal cell turnover and fibroblast activity in the dermal layer. When you remove the dead skin cells on the top layers of your epidermis your skin will be brighter, healthier and hydrated. Chemical peels can address many skin concerns such as acne, hyperpigmentation and dryness. There are many peels on the market, however, it can be difficult to choose the one that will best suit your needs. Your skincare professional is the best person to ask advice on how to achieve the results you are seeking.

 

What are the acids used with Circadia Chemical Peels?

Circadia uses a few different acids for their peels ranging from gentle acids like Lactic Acid to the heavy hitters like Mandelic Acid. Circadia uses Lactic Acid, Salicylic Acid, Mandelic Acid and Resorcinol and a combination of some of these acids to create Alpha Beta peel, MandeliClear with Vitamin A Accelerator, which is a modified Jessner and the Jessner peel.

 

What Makes Circadia’s Peels so different from most of the peels out there?

Circadia’s peels come in two forms, a gel base and an ethanol (alcohol) base. The gel based peels are designed to lay on the surface of the skin. The gel based peels are gentle on the skin and are not as irritating to the skin. Since the gel-based peels, like the Alpha/Beta peels, are designed to stay on the surface of the skin and do not penetrate the epidermis as deeply. The result is fresh glowing skin with little to no downtime and little to no peeling.  With the combination of Lactic Acid and Salicylic Acid in the Alpha/Beta 30/10, your skin will be left clear, bright, hydrated and glowing. The gel base peels do need to be neutralized to ensure the ingredients are no longer active on the skin. You can schedule a treatment and leave the spa looking refreshed and go on with your daily routines. Just remember to wear your SPF!

The ethanol (alcohol) based peels are designed differently. Since the carrier of the peel is ethanol, this allows the ingredients in the peel to be driven deeper into the epidermal layers. This boosts cell turnover and fibroblast activity at the dermal layer.  Unlike the gel-based peels, the ethanol-based peels, like the Dermafrost 12.5% Salicylic Acid does not need to be neutralized. They are self-neutralizing.  This cuts down on treatment time. The Dermafrost 12.5% Salicylic Acid peel is great for a Grade 1 acne. It will help clear acne, breakdown oil and leave the skin bright and fresh. Remember that with ethanol peels there can be a significant amount of peeling, there will be downtime and specific home care products and instructions that must be followed to ensure that your skin heals correctly. You can expect 3-8 days of peeling when you use an ethanol-based peel. This just depends on the number of layers you apply to the skin. You can apply 1-3 layers but no more than 3 layers with the ethanol-based peels. Always wear your SPF with these peels.

 

Peel season brings many skin transformations! Just keep in mind that using the correct home care products during the healing process can make all the difference. Most importantly and this cannot be stressed enough ALWAYS wear your sun protection!

4 Steps to have in your daily routine to combat dry skin!

We have all heard that a consistent home care routine can make a difference in our skin health. Well, this is not just a rumor! But who has time to have an eleven step routine that can get overwhelming and complicated.  Having a quick skincare routine in place to help improve your specific skin condition is half of the battle. Today we will discuss some of the best #Circadia products to help improve the moisture content in the skin while getting the benefit of anti-aging ingredients and how to get it all done in just 4 steps!

  1. The first step in your daily routine is to cleanse your skin and remove the makeup, dirt, oil, and debris your skin collects throughout the day. Washing your face at the end of a long day can be challenging but very beneficial. Chose a cleanser that does the heavy lifting for you. The best cleanser from #Circadia that will help boost the skin’s hydration and the anti-aging benefits is the #AmandolaMilkCleanser. This cleanser is creamy and hydrating with the ability to do triple duty. This cleanser has 2 ingredients that promote moisture while increasing cell turn over. #AmandolaMilkCleasner has Lactic Acid and Mandelic Acid. These acids boost the skins natural hydration production and provide brightening benefits so your skin is left glowing and fresh. When you use this cleanser it cleanses, exfoliates and hydrates the skin all in one step!

In the morning do yourself and your skin a favor…Skip cleansing your face. Just splash some warm water on your face and continue with your morning routine. Believe me, your skin will thank you for this. This keeps the lipid barrier intact and allows all the moisture your skin has worked so hard to produce to stay where it needs to be. This is something I changed in my morning routine just as an experiment and my skin has never been happier!

FUN FACT: The #Amandola Milk Cleanser can be used as an at-home mask. Apply the cleanser and allow it to remain on the skin for 5-10 minutes then rinse off. Your skin will be soft, smooth, hydrated and bright.

  1. The second step in your daily routine would be to pick a serum that you can use twice a day. The main ingredient to look for in a serum to help boost your moisture is Hyaluronic Acid. #Circadia’s Vitamin C Reversal serum not only has Hyaluronic Acid but it also has vitamin B5 and the most stable form of Vitamin C on the market, MAP.  The Hyaluronic Acid helps hydrate, MAP helps to inhibit the breakdown of collagen and brighten the skin. Vitamin B5 helps to regenerate and sooth the skin. This serum is wonderful for all skin conditions and skin types.

FUN FACT: Add Blueberry & White Tea Hydrating Mist to your routine. Misting this product onto the skin and into your hand before you apply the Vitamin C Reversal Serum will boost your hydration and antioxidant protection.

  1. The most important part of your daily morning routine is to use an SPF. It is stressed in our industry to use a sun protection with a minimum of a 30 SPF. #Circadias Light Day SPF 37 is yet another product that does all the work for you. It is an outstanding moisturizer with SPF protection. This SPF contains Grape Stem Cell Extract to protect against UV damage, Preventhilia which is a tetrapeptide which helps prevent damage caused by UV radiation & the unique ingredient Sola Stay which is a photostabilizer.  With this combo of ingredients, this SPF will provide UV and environmental protection.
  2. One of the best ways to help your skin maintain a healthy lipid barrier is to apply a moisturizer to your skin in the evening. The most hydrating moisturizer by #Circadia is AquaPorin Hydrating Cream. This is a light moisturizer that maintains and increases the skins moisture production. With its unique blend of ingredients like Diffuporin, Aquasense, Avocado Oil and Macadamia Nut Oil to help regenerate and soothe your skin while boosting its moisture level and preventing trans-epidermal water loss.

FUN FACT: You can add one to two drops of Hydralox to AquaPorin to boost the hydration level of the moisturizer. You can also layer a Vitamin A cream like Nighttime Repair under AquaPorin to get an extra boost in cell turnover, hydration, and antioxidants. Remember to apply any Vitamin A creams in the evening.

 

ALWAYS drink plenty of water and take your internal oils like Flaxseed oil and Fish oil!
