We all want healthy, radiant, youthful skin. Many of us buy excessive amounts of skincare products looking for the magic, only to become disappointed when they don’t see the results we crave. I’ve been there myself and really it was that dissatisfaction with my own skin that led me into the field of cosmetic dermatology and aesthetics. I was a product whore in my late 20’s and yet my skin was still dry, dull, and discolored. The final straw was when wrinkles started appearing at age 30. What was I doing wrong? I had talked to a dermatologist, I had read every article in beauty magazines that I could, and I tried every over the counter product I could get my hands on, yet nothing seemed to give me the results I wanted. I did not understand the issue until I started my career in cosmetic dermatology.
Bioavailability andproduct penetration are based on molecular size, skin pH, polarity or molecular charge, and oil solubility. This is where science steps in and with technological advancements, ingredients can be changed into smaller particles with nanotechnology and microspheres to increase skin penetration. Liposome encapsulation and micro-encapsulation are also technologies used to increase product penetration by increasing oil solubility and increasing ingredient stability. For sustainability, many times science is used to synthesize the best plant-based ingredients in a lab environment to increase their concentrations and bioavailability while also decreasing the use of water and soil.
At Mikel Kristi, we formulate our products with bioactive and bioavailable ingredients like Peptides, Vitamin C, Prickly Pear Extract and Retinaldehyde to name a few. Our goal is to improve your skin’s natural functions of natural exfoliation, restoration, and protection to deliver you healthier, more radiant and beautiful skin.

A new ailment to add to these pandemic-times…. MASKNE!
What is it? Mask acne (aka maskne) is a real thing, and it’s plaguing a lot of us wearing masks on our faces everyday for work, errand running, and day to day outings. It is especially stubborn and relentless during these hot summer months. Breakouts and blemishes are happening on our faces along the areas where the protective material is sitting on our face, by trapping dirt, oil, and sweat. But the solution is not to stop wearing that mask! It’s imperative to protect yourselves and others during these times. What you CAN do is take some steps to minimize the not so fun side effects of facial coverings.
