Perfect Skin All Winter

All Revive Moisturizers contain the 3 key lipids for healthy skin all year long.

All Revive Moisturizers contain the 3 key lipids for healthy skin all year long.

As temps get colder, we need to adjust our skincare routine to ensure healthy barrier function.  Prolonged exposure to reduced humidity, as occurs in radiant-heated homes in temperate climates during the winter, is a well-known risk factor for AD (A topic dermatitis/rashes/redness). AD increases the natural process of water loss through our skin, which causes dry/itch skin and signals inflammation. 

There is evidence that lowering skin PH can help to protect the skin from external pathogens and help bring barrier function back to normal.  This is done in your esthetician’s office with peels and masks.  Water and some cosmetics can raise the PH of your skin, which is a deadly environment for the healthy bacteria needed for healthy skin.  There is also scientific evidence that psychological stress aggravates barrier function.  There are 3 key lipids (Ceramides, cholesterol, Free Fatty Acids) that control barrier function, applying a lotion including these lipids will help normalize barrier function and heal dry and inflamed skin.

This is a pretty scientific article, but it explains why a monthly peel and a proper home skincare routine is essential for healthy feeling and looking skin throughout the winter.  This is especially important for people suffering with dry skin, Rosacea, eczema and dermatitis even before winter begins.

Have great holiday skin.

Going into the holiday season, this may not be what you want to hear, but dairy and sugar greatly affect the skin. Acne is the number one thing that that can happen with consumption of dairy and sugar. Sugar also causes faster aging and cell death, which is bad for skin and your bodily organs. One or two pieces of candy or an occasional piece of pizza won’t ruin your skin, but regular consumption will indeed cause acne, wrinkles, inflammation and can make Rosacea and other skin conditions worse. Read more.

After a weekend of indulgence, I always do a peel and then right after, an acne mask. This leaves the pores clean so when the oil production rears up, it won’t cause a clog and infection, causing acne. Think ahead. Get your at home peel and acne mask before your holiday diet vacation.

Sugar not only increases your waistline, it speeds cell death and the aging process!

Microneedle: Science PROVEN acne/wrinkle/scar improvement

microneedle wrinkle.png

Microneedling is a minimally invasive skin treatment where we intentionally create tiny punctures in the top layer of skin using micro-fine needles. The process is scientifically proven to trigger the body’s natural wound healing process, which encourages collagen production (lessens wrinkle depth and tightens skin sagging), scar healing and an overall brighter complexion.

The whole process of microneedling takes about 30 minutes. Depending on your pain tolerance, the process may cause moderate to very minimal pain; we use numbing cream to minimize pain. It’s normal to experience some redness after this treatment that may last up to a couple days. It’s common to see skin improvement within 48 to 72 hours after treatment.

How many times do you need to do microneedling? Is microneedling permanent? Recommendations will vary, but many professionals will suggest getting four to six micro-needling treatments spaced four to six weeks apart. After that you’ll most likely be ready for a “maintenance treatment” within six months to a year later.

You’ll want to avoid the gym, sauna and direct sunlight exposure for at least the first 24 hours after microneedling treatment since sweating can result in increased inflammation. The series of treatments is best to start in fall and winter months because of this.

Toxic Ingredients = Chemical Overload


Toxic Ingredients = Chemical Overload

The FDA is quite relaxed on the US regulations and on skin care, beauty ingredients and the claims companies can outright lie about.  Some ingredients in beauty products disrupt the immune and reproductive systems as well as cause cellular change that can lead to cancer.  Using one or two products with these harmful chemicals may not cause major issues, but most of us use many products daily with harmful ingredients. (Shampoo, shaving cream, lotions, serums, cleanser, toner, oils, toothpaste, makeup, etc)  Our bodies are constantly bombarded with chemicals, which in the long run can cause disease and in the short run can cause dryness, acne, irritation, eczema or Rosacea flares, rashes and many other skin issues.  It’s best to find safe and natural products that are right for your skin’s unique needs.  You can scan or type in your products and find out their toxicity rating at  Also, not all organic products are created equal; some natural ingredients are still harmful or too strong for sensitive skin.  If you are unsure what your skin needs, please call to schedule your skin assessment and product analysis at 541-410-2697. It’s $45 and takes 15 - 25 minutes


A few ingredients to avoid:

Propylparaben, Methylparaben…anything ending in “paraben”, Oleander, Fragrance

BHA (butylated hydroxyanisole), Methenamine, Diazolidinyl Urea, Triclosan, Hydroquinone and many more.

Are you harming your skin?

skin type.jpg

Most (about 98%) of my clients don’t know their skin type or guess wrong and are using harmful products that not only make their skin look and feel worse, but also compromise the health of their skin.  It is essential for everyone to get a skin assessment to make sure they are using products that work well together to improve and/or maintain skin health and beauty.  Not everyone that has shiny skin has an oily skin type, intrigued? Learn more later when I talk about oil production. 

There are many factors that go into skin type: dry feeling skin, dehydration, pore size and oil production, medications and allergies, your job, genetics, UV exposure, if you’re a swimmer, if you tend to blush.  Many of these things can be true for one person!  An experienced esthetician will take into account the current condition (texture, color, etc) of the client’s skin and then factor in their medications, life style, water intake, stress levels, living environment, skincare routine at home, if they shave or wax, and the state of their health (hormones, cancer treatment, grief, stress, new medications, life changes, etc).  A well educated and experienced esthetician will be able to recommend a personalized plan in office for treatments and at home for a steady routine that will gently feed your skin and repair daily pollution.

Does your child have acne?


Unfortunately, acne can plague us at any age but during the crucial time of adolescence and puberty is the time to start battling it.  Pre-teens are just barely learning how to take care of themselves and then BAM!, puberty kicks in and hormones turn their faces into an oily mess.  Chances are that your child will have some form of acne during this time.  It is so very important to have your child see an esthetician for at least 1 informative visit at this time.  Their obstinance will be broken down by the professional telling them the same thing you tell them: "wash your face".  Washing twice per day with the proper cleanser and applying the proper lotion will keep most of their embarrassing acne away.  They will start middle school and high school with their beautiful clear skinned heads held high.  The social aspect is a huge one at this time, but addressing the problem NOW will lessen the need for stronger medications, lasers and chemical peels later, that may not ever leave them with soft, clear skin.  TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE!  Click here to schedule your teen for a teen facial.
