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!

Self-Care Through Skincare
Self-Care Through Skincare

by Christy Hall December 08, 2019

Let’s face it… modern life as we know it is a full throttle endeavor where productivity is currency, and taking care of yourself seems to be put on the back burner more often than not. Self-care is a new term that is being thrown around a lot lately, and it's easy to google lists of things that you could jam into your week to varying degrees of success. For me, I find that I am most successful in taking care of myself when simplicity is the mindset, and the tools that I use don’t pour on the stress of getting to a class, or meditation on time!

The Truth: Hyaluronic Acid
The Truth: Hyaluronic Acid

by Christy Hall December 01, 2019

We all yearn for the skin of our youth with its suppleness, resilience, and turgor. These youthful qualities are due in part to the skin’s high water content.  With aging, one of the biggest changes is the skin’s inability to produce moisture and retain water. The Big Beauty Industry will have you believe that the only way to a more youthful appearance is to slather on as much moisturizer as your skin and wallet can handle. Unfortunately, moisturizers do not help the skin in this way, just like a Band-Aid can’t actually heal a cut. With optimal skin health and proper skin supplementation, using ingredients like hyaluronic acid or sodium hyaluronate, you can regain that youthful suppleness.

Healthy Skin Starts On The Inside
Healthy Skin Starts On The Inside

by Christy Hall November 25, 2019

Beautiful, healthy skin starts on the inside. Many of us live in inflammatory states which show up on our skin as wrinkles, dullness, acne, dryness, discoloration and rashes. It is very important to understand that your lifestyle is the largest factor in your body’s relationship with inflammation, or how easily you rest and repair. I’m not just talking about diet and exercise. Your home environment, your work, your relationships—all have fingers on the dial of your health and wellbeing.
