Sensitivity is Only for the Fairest of Us All

“Just because our fair-skinned friends blush and flush more visibly than the rest of us, doesn’t mean they have the corner on the sensitive skin market. Fortunately or unfortunately, sensitive skin picks no favorites and even when it doesn’t show, it tells and lets us know we have it in the form of stinging, burning, itching and general discomfort.

While redness is more visible in fair skinned complexions, sensitive skin is equally prevalent in all races, genders and ethnicities. And although differences in skin tone may mask the obvious signs, the solution for all is one and the same. Look for a regimen that shields against the biological and environmental aggressors that can trigger inflammation, helps fortify skin’s natural moisture barrier, calms visible redness, and reduces irritation so that you can take comfort in having a healthy-looking complexion every day.”DermRF


Myth: There aren’t any quick fixes when it comes to Skincare

“Whether you’re hoping  for a kiss under the mistletoe or just getting camera-ready for holiday photos, there are small steps you can take weeks and days before the big moment to look your best.

If you have 12 days: Assume the worst and plan for the best. Meaning, if you have occasional sensitive skin peaks or the predictable acne valley, start your treatment regimen before your visual symptoms start. This will keep your skin happy and healthy looking.

If you have three days: Add in some gentle exfoliation to lighten and brighten skin. Keep skin moisturized and apply an eye cream daily with optical brighteners to keep the eye area bright and luminous.

And for an emergency pimple fix, here’s what we recommend:

  1. Apply ice buffered by a napkin for 10 to 15 minutes to reduce redness and telltale swelling.
  2. Cleanse and apply a treatment lotion containing sulfur, which can be purchased without a prescription. Sulfur helps to unplug pores and shrink swelling.
  3. Follow with a product containing 1% hydrocortisone or benzoyl peroxide (both are available over the counter) to keep pores freer and cleaner.
  4. Apply a thin layer of a medicated concealer.
  5. If time permits, get a cortisone shot from your dermatologist. The results can be miraculous.

So, as the days tick down toward the big event, rest assured you’ll be able to handle any skincare emergency that comes  your way.”DermRF


Myth: Late Nights = Dark Under Eye Circles

“With so many demands on our time (holiday parties, gift wrapping, baking cookies for your neighbors, etc.) a good night of sleep can elude us during the holidays. And the result is staring back at us in the mirror every morning. We’re all too familiar with the look. Dark circles show up under your eyes. And these circles become more pronounced with alcohol or caffeine consumption due to greater water retention and even more pronounced as we age and skin slackens. The good news is that everyone doesn’t need to know you’re burning the midnight oil to pull off the perfect holiday. Sleep with your head propped up on a pillow to help with circulation and apply compresses /ice packs to your eyes to reduce swelling in the morning.”DermRF


“Rosacea is characterized by intense and frequent flushing or blotch, redness, the appearance of “broken blood vessels” on the cheeks, chin, and nose, and in most cases, acne-like pimples. In fair-skinned people, particularly of Scottish, Irish, and English descent, early signs of rosacea may be the pink, flushed cheeks of youth. Eventually, rosacea progresses to a permanent redness of the mid face, cheeks, nose, and chin, along with pustules and red inflammatory acne bumps. Rosacea is often incorrectly referred to as adult acne, but it lacks the comedones (blackheads and whiteheads) of acne vulgaris.

The extract causes of rosacea are unknown, but it is clear that it runs in families. If you suffer from rosacea, you probably also have some components of sensitive skin. Additionally, we believe hormones play a strong role, as many women notice rosacea flares when they are menstruating or during the menopausal years. There are also theories that suggest an infectious component such as H. pylori bacteria or Demodex folliculorum, a certain type of microscopic mite, may play a role. This mite, a normal resident in human skin, lives in hair follicles. Two recent studies revealed that the mites were significantly more numerous in facial skin samples of people with rosacea than in people without the condition. In addition, the mite population peaked on the skin samples of these patients in the spring, when rosacea tends to flare up.

We can sometimes identify pre-rosacea in teenagers and women in there early twenties. They may come to see us with concerns about acne, but because of the “flush and blush” syndrome, we know they are experiencing the early signs of rosacea. Like acne, rosacea in not curable, so we advice our patients to educate themselves, avoid the triggers, and treat the symptoms in an effort to minimize and frequency of flare-ups.”

WRITE YOUR SKIN A PRESCRIPTION FOR CHANGE


“Fact: Remember that pores don’t have trap doors that open and close, so water temperature won’t affect the size of your pores”. 

Write your skin a prescription for change.


Back in 1971, Malibu Barbie was teaching our young daughters that sporting a suntan was groovy. Roll the clock forward to the new millennium and Malibu Barbie comes with her own miniature bottle of sunscreen, SPF 60. She still has a tan, however, which leads us to ask, “where’s the sunless tanner?” Maybe she left it in the Barbie Dream Car.

HOME-BASED BUSINESS in AMERICA

  • 44% of Home Based Business is started for under $5,000
  • There are 38 million Home-Based Businesses in the USA

That’s roughly 13% of Americans who have a “Plan B” in this down economy. We have car insurance, life insurance, and health insurance, even cell phone insurance! Why not income insurance? This is the perfect solution!

  • 70% of Home-Based Businesses succeed within 3 years versus 30% of regular businesses
  • 70% of Americans would prefer to be self-employed
  • A New Home-Based Business is started every 12 seconds
  • Home Based Business makes $427 billion per year

Let’s make a comparison: the NFL is a $9 billion industry. This is big business. Our company is doing 5 times in a month what Rodan + Fields used to do when we were in high-end department stores. But what attracted the Doctors most to this model, and has hooked me completely, is the ability to help anyone create a business of their own.

It’s clear; this business model is an effective, efficient and powerful new normal. Maybe it’s time to understand how a home-based business can get you closer to the life you really want.

Do you or someone you know want to explore a lucrative, incredibly fun, US-only (but not for long though) business that’s appeals to everyone with skin? Would you like to leverage the success of others and proven training, marketing tools and technology that make earning full-time income in part-time hours possible?
