Cosmeceuticals: Your Partner In Aging Well

Cosmeceuticals: Your Partner In Aging Well

by Christy Hall February 10, 2020

An Introduction To Cosmeceuticals
So, you may ask, “Why don’t all skin products work?”  Many of us have bought the newest trendy product that we have read about in a beauty magazine or seen on TV, used it for a few weeks, see no results, and then put it in the cabinet never to be touched again. The fact is that YOU WANT TO SEE RESULTS!  You want your skin to look and feel healthier and younger. However, many beauty products fall short because those amazing “active ingredients” that they advertise aren’t delivered to the right place in the skin, or in the right form to be effective.

Skin Type Myth Busted

Skin Type Myth Busted

by Christy Hall February 03, 2020

Many companies in the business of “Big Beauty” have capitalized on the notion of a customized skincare plan based on your particular skin type. I think we have all taken the quiz, received the result, and went straight to the cash register confident that this custom regimen would be the answer to our skin woes. Cut to three months later, and we are back at a different register, listening to different set of promises … and lather, rinse, repeat.

It really doesn’t matter what “skin type” you have. The four basic daily needs for skin health and anti-aging do not change

The Skin Type Myth

The Skin Type Myth

by Bold Commerce Collaborator January 20, 2020

Does Skin Type Matter? 
In reality, everyone’s skin has the same anatomy, and therefore the same basic needs to keep skin young and healthy.  So, knowing your skin type (oily, dry, or combination) really doesn’t matter when choosing skincare… as long as you meet these needs.  
Any skincare product regimen should address these 3 basic needs:

  1. Natural exfoliation
  2. Restoration of collagen 
  3. Protection from environmental damage.

Psychological Obstacles To Aesthetic Intervention

by Christy Hall January 13, 2020

I want to bring to light the many stigmas attached to the use of cosmetic intervention as a whole. The idea of beauty in our culture has been warped and misguided by big beauty and fashion marketing for many years, and I am happy that a more inclusive mindset is starting to take hold in our culture that honors everyone’s uniqueness. You can see this in the popularity of tattoos, vibrant hair colors and different body types being embraced and well represented. And cosmetic intervention is no different than the aforementioned choices.

Bioactive Ingredients? What are they and why are they important?

by Christy Hall January 06, 2020

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.

Skin Conditions: Inflammation

Skin Conditions: Inflammation

by Christy Hall December 29, 2019

Inflammation seems to be at the foundation of many different skincare issues including premature aging, acne, rosacea and melasma. Inflammation is a natural biological process that the body uses as a way to signal the need for repair at a site of injury or illness. This is a completely healthy response, and when it is in balance with the body’s other processes, it causes rapid healing to acute situations big and small. The inflammatory alarm bells that your body ring out are absolutely an essential way we regenerate on a daily basis. So, in and of itself inflammation is not a bad thing.

Skin Conditions: Rosacea

Skin Conditions: Rosacea

by Christy Hall December 23, 2019

Rosacea is a skin condition with no real known “cause” although a variety of factors can absolutely contribute to this inflammatory issue. It can range in severity from a slight reddening of the skin, to a type of rosacea that can actually disfigure the face like in the case of Rhinophyma which thickens and augments the shape of the nose.  Types of Rosacea: There are three general different types of rosacea;  Acneic, Glandular, and Redness.

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.
