Adult acne can be so frustrating. You thought you outgrew your acne in your teenage years, but it’s back! Here are some tips that can make dramatic changes in your skin health.

Clean up your diet: Oily skin can be exacerbated by your diet. Science has shown a strong link between consuming dairy products and high glycemic index foods with an increase in acne breakouts and inflammation. Clean up your diet by avoiding dairy products. Choose low glycemic index whole, non-processed foods. The majority of your diet should be fruits and vegetables.

Evaluate your make-up: Make-up can contain many pore clogging chemicals. One ingredient in particular, Talc, is a major cause for acne breakouts. Choose an all-natural, mineral based makeup like Colorescience to decrease breakouts.

A good daily skin care regimen is key to healthy skin.

Your regimen should include a topical Vitamin A product to increase skin cell turnover to decrease pore clogging comedones (blackheads/whiteheads). Try our Vital A Rejuvenating Serum nightly.

Rejuvenating Swipes not only increase cell turnover using gentle AHAs (alpha-hydroxy acids) but, also contain an essential oil blend that kills acne bacteria and helps normalize oil production. Use these 3 times per week.

A good SPF daily will help decrease acne scarring. Choose an oil free, zinc oxide based SPF to decrease inflammation and prevent pore clogging. My favorite is Elta MD SPF 41.

With these changes, you should see dramatic improvements in your skin over the next 3 months!

to Your Best Skin,

For many, summer time equates to travel and outdoor fun.  I don’t know about you, but I love quick weekend getaways. Especially for those of us in Tucson, we love to escape the scorching heat of the desert and enjoy some time by the water. I like to pack light and that means simplifying the skin care products that I take with me. 

So, what do you need for an easy and effective travel regimen?
Pack light and choose products that can multitask.

Travel is fun and exciting and there are so many wonderful places to visit in the world. Each place can offer incredible experiences and beautiful landscapes; but, how does your skin react to these environments? There are so many different climates and micro-climates that you may experience differences in your skin while traveling to different areas. Many may assume that they can skip certain skin care steps depending on the atmospheric conditions they encounter, but this is not the case.

We Love Peptides!

Why do we love peptides?
We love peptides because they reduce the appearance of fine lines and improve skin tone and texture.  And I don’t know about you, but the older I get the more I love and appreciate having smooth, radiant, and firm skin.  I like to refer to our 
Bio Peptide Revitalizing Serum as “photoshop” in a bottle.
