Mars vs. Venus Skincare

Mars and Venus Skincare

We hear so much about how different men and women are from one another. From how we process information, to the ability to multitask (or not!), to the defined roles of each gender.  Luckily for us, these differences and generalizations are starting to break down and merge, and skincare is just another avenue where the differences aren’t as large as we think.


All Inclusive Skincare

First and foremost, skincare is not just for women. In my medical aesthetics practice, there is an increasing number of men that come into my clinic, and it’s for the exact same reasons that women do. EVERYONE wants to feel better in their skin, and it's my honor to help people come up with strategies and solutions to do just that.

It doesn’t matter if you are a man, a woman, or anything in between, the health of your skin needs to be tended to on a continual basis. We’re all dealing with the implications from an increasingly toxic world, where we come into contact with a host of damaging properties on a daily basis. This elevated exposure puts the health of our body and skin at risk.

Top Skincare Needs For ALL Genders

Here are the top points to consider regarding what every person needs in quality skincare, NO MATTER WHAT!

  • An increase in cellular turnover via AHA’s, BHA’s, and potent forms of Vitamin A like Retinaldehyde. This helps to amp up your skin exfoliation as it naturally dwindles with age.

  • A boost in collagen production. This is the key to plump skin with a refined texture that is the hallmark of healthy functioning skin. Ingredients like Bio Peptides and Vitamin C help to increase and repair collagen synthesis for radiant, youthful skin..

  •  Last and certainly not least is sun protection. The sun’s harmful rays do great damage to the skin, as well as increase your chances of skin cancer exponentially. Using a high grade vitamin C product in the morning, along with a potent physical sunblock with zinc oxide, is a must for everyone, everyday.

Knowing that these three themes are the entry to resilient, healthy skin, our hope is to offer great skincare solutions for all genders and skin types. In the month of June, (calling all Dads who deserve to put their best face forward!) we are offering a promotion of a 120ML Purifying Wash, a 30ML C-Radiance Moisturizer, and a ELTA-MD sunblock for 20% off the set.


A Pro Tip:
Men who shave their face regularly enjoy a higher level of cell turnover than those who don’t. This leads to healthier, timeless skin in the long haul! For those who don’t shave their face, go into a highly trained medical aesthetics practice for a monthly dermaplane facial to enjoy the benefits of a freshly exfoliated face!

5 Ways To Amp Up Your Beauty From The Inside Out
5 Ways To Amp Up Your Beauty From The Inside Out

by Christy Hall March 24, 2020

We all know that beauty starts on the inside.  Let’s look at some ways to go beyond skin deep to get the results you desire. 

  1. Be kind to yourself:  Be conscious of your thoughts. Notice when you feel yourself going into a negative state. Because of our survival instincts, humans have a negativity bias built into our psyche. This was helpful back when we needed to remember not to eat a poisonous plant in the wild, or that a tiger lived in that particular cave. But in modern life it is used to ruminate on current dramas, past hurts, or future anxieties. See if you can notice when you go down your particular rabbit hole, and see if you can change your thoughts to kindness and gratitude. If not, just focus on the word STOP.

Skin Health & Well Aging Part 1: Skin Function

by Christy Hall March 09, 2020

Understanding how the skin functions as a whole will explain why some topical (on the skin) interventions work, and others don’t. The intent of any good skincare regimen should be on bringing the skin’s natural function back to optimum performance, much like it was back in your younger years. It is important NOT to just apply a topical “Band-Aid” on skin issues with moisturizers or organic oils. You need to get your skin back to a healthier state of functioning on all levels by feeding it the right nutrients.
