Do you know how to feed your collagen production?
Here at Mikel Kristi we know a thing or two about what is needed to build, repair , and enhance collagen production on all levels. We believe in a multi faceted approach to looking and feeling our best.
Lucky for us, there is one property that enhances collagen production at an amazing rate. When applied topically and taken internally, this vitamin helps to restructure the protein matrix that keeps your skin healthy, boyant, and resilient. That property is none other than Vitamin C.
We know… Vitamin C doesn’t have the same alluring title as some of the newest anti-aging headliners, but make no mistake, it's a repairative powerhouse when it comes to protecting your skin from more advanced signs of aging. Specifically, when it comes to helping correct and inhibit brown spots and splotches due to unprotected sun exposure, as well as increasing the skin and body’s ability to create collagen.
NOT ALL VITAMIN C IS CREATED EQUAL!
Here are a few of the finer highlights when using this potent anti-ager in your daily routine.
Starting your day with a healthy dose of Vitamin C inside the body and out is one of the best ways to protect your cells, regenerate your collagen production, and ensure vibrant healthy skin on every level. Our C Radiance Moisturizer, and our reformulated, soon-to-be-released Vital C Repair Serum have you covered with the most powerful and absorbable form of topical Vitamin C on the market. Apply daily and you can rest assured that your skin is getting the nutrition, revitalization, and protection it needs!

Hello beauties!! Let’s have a little skin care education today and talk about a popular ingredient many of my patients have been asking me about lately. It’s called niacinamide, pronounce (ni-ah-cin-ah-mide). It can be found in many foods such as meat, fish and milk, green vegetables and beans. But the real craze is its presence in lotions, creams, sunscreens and facial serums. It comes with a lot of tout and patients are all too excited to tell me they have purchased products with this ingredient, even if they don’t know just what properties this ingredient has! So, let’s discuss.
The truth about sunscreen!
Facts and Myths about one of the most important products you use should be using EVERYDAY!
There are some very popular truths and misconceptions about sunscreen. Let's clear some of those up today!!!
1. Sunscreen is not always necessary
Many people think sunscreen is only needed on very sunny days. If I can't see the sun, do I really need sunscreen?? The answer is yes. If you are outside, you are being exposed to UV rays. Wear that sunscreen. And don't forget about your body. The tops of your shoulders, arms, and chest need just as much sun protection as your face.
Safety & Sun Protection
Living in Arizona means that we are in the sun almost every day of the year, and summertime activities, vacations, picnics and pool parties mean we are in the sun even more. But regular exposure to the sun can wreak havoc on the skin, leading to unsightly brown spots, redness, broken capillaries, large pores, saggy skin, wrinkles and skin cancers. To prevent these changes, a broad-spectrum sunblock needs to be applied daily.
