Introducing the:

Year of sun tanning and outdoors activities without sunscreen can leave you with, sun damaged skin, dark spots, rough and very dry skin. Not fun! And now summer is coming and you want to look good in your bikini!

By removing the old skin cells of your skin, you will reveal healthy, bright skin. The controlled damage of TCA products also stimulates your skin to heal itself by producing new collagen and elastin. Collagen remodeling makes your skin healthier, more elastic, and better able to retain moisture.

Skin Cells

You started life as a single cell that divided into two cells. Those divided into four, and so on, until you grew into an adult. Once we reach adulthood, most of our cells stop growing and dividing. We’re done at that point. There are a few exceptions, however, and one of those is skin cells.

You may have noticed that when your skin is dry, it gets flaky and pieces fall off. Don’t be alarmed and think that you’re eventually going to lose all of your skin. Skin cells die, slough off, and are replaced by new skin cells. The process slows down as you get older, but it never stops.

Skin cells grow and divide in the basement membrane. From here, the new cells get pushed up into the epidermis. Once in the epidermis, the cells no longer receive blood or nutrients. They begin the slow process of dying and sloughing off to be replaced by yet more new cells. Your outermost layer of skin is nothing but dead cells.

Get rid of fine lines

If the skin on your face, neck, decolletage, legs, arms, or hands looks slightly crepey, dry, or is marred by fine lines and wrinkles, we may recommend the I’m Fabulous Trio.

You may feel a slight tingling sensation as the acids gently release your old, dead cells from the surface of your skin (epidermis). Afterward, your skin may be slightly pink or look sunburned for about three to five days. To keep your skin bright and healthy, by adding a regimen you can keep your skin smooth.

Smooth away brown spots and wrinkles

When the sun’s UVA and UVB rays have caused alterations in your skin pigments, such as brown spots and actinic keratoses, we may recommend at home light and safe skin peels.

Remedy tired looking, sagging skin

A skin peel may be your best choice if you have severe sun damage with deep creasing and wrinkling and multiple areas of hyperpigmentation. The effects of a skin body peel are similar to those of laser therapy, as both reach down to the deepest layers of your skin to stimulate collagen remodeling.

ENJOY SOFT SMOOTH SKIN.

If you are experiencing rough skin, you’re not alone. Fortunately, the condition is reversible with various treatment options. There are several home remedies to diminish rough skin.

FACTS ABOUT ROUGH, DRY SKIN

There are several conditions that cause the skin to become rough and flakey. A few of the most common of these are Keratosis Pilaris, Actinic Keratoses, Folliculitis and Eczema. Keratosis Pilaris is a condition where small bumps appear on the skin usually around the thighs, arms, cheeks and buttocks. This condition is caused by an overproduction of keratin which blocks the hair follicles and causes bumps to form.

Actinic Keratoses is also known as solar keratosis and is a scaly growth brought on by sun damage, or exposure to UV radiation. It is considered a pre-cancer so it is important to seek treatment as soon as they appear.

The results are healthy looking skin that is smooth, soft and blemish free.

What causes rough skin? Atopic Dermatitis often affects young children who develop rough and irritable skin on the back of the knees, inside of the elbows and around the hip area. Affected skin is extremely itchy. Keratosis Polaris is a condition caused when too much keratin builds up in the skin’s hair follicles.

How do you get smooth skin texture? For the days you’re literally feeling rough. Everyone wants skin that’s smooth, soft and glowing, but for many, it’s not-so-smooth sailing after puberty hits.

Sunbathing and sun exposure can put you at risk for serious medical problems. Damage to the skin, including abnormal discoloration, wrinkling, or skin cancer, can result from overexposure to the sun.

You better off using bronzer oil and creams to look tan then actually sunbathing. At the end, you will want to spend thousands of dollars trying to fix your skin with lightening skin serums, skin peels or laser treatments.

To protect itself from the damaging effects of the sun, your skin increases its production of the dark brown pigment called melanin. The extra melanin makes your skin look darker or sun-tanned. In some cases, the sun causes an uneven increase in melanin production, which produces irregular coloring (pigmentation) of the skin. The sun can also cause a permanent stretching of small blood vessels, giving your skin a mottled, reddish appearance.

Melanin is the dark brown pigment in the top layer of skin (epidermis) that gives skin its color. This pigment protects the deeper layers of skin from sun damage. The more melanin in the skin, the darker the skin appears and the more protection it has against sun damage.

People with medium or dark complexions naturally have more protection than do people with lighter complexions. But they still can experience sun damage. This man’s face shows signs of sun damage — increased areas of irregular pigmentation and wrinkles.

To help stop or even reverse sun damage to the skin:

Exfoliate. The buildup of stratum corneum (the dead, outermost skin cell layer) can make skin appear blotchy and uneven. Also, remnants of self-tanning products can collect in typically dry areas (such as the elbows), causing the skin to lose its luster and appear “dirty.” Loofahs, scrubs, alpha hydroxy acid (AHA)* cleansers, and home microdermabrasion kits (in which tiny crystals are sprayed on the skin) can remove dead skin cells, leaving skin looking smoother.

Use sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or higher. Sunscreen is one of the keys to radiant, youthful-looking skin. Daily use may even lower your long-term risk of skin cancer. By reducing your daily sun exposure, sunscreen allows your skin time to heal and your immune system the chance to repair some existing damage.

Stay away from the sun as much as possible especially for a longer period of time.
