Serums are the most potent form of any ingredient but you cant just keep layering and layering on serums...
So we prioritize
vitamin C
and then 2 others max.

Peptide serums 2 times a day (morning and night) are my next fave to add for anti-aging.

Niacinamide and Hyaluronic acid serums are 2 other favs.

You can also get peptides in the form of a moisturizer! @alastinskincare is where it’s at for peptides👍🏼

Do you have “chicken skin” like I do? 

It’s called K E R A T O S I S 🐓 P I L A R I S (KP)

2 words: exfoliate + moisturize on and REPEAT.

Many people struggle with this rash on the back of their arms, legs, and/or or cheeks. 

What’s happening? hair follicles plugged with keratin (skin cells) 

What to do? 
exfoliate the plugged keratin in the shower.
moisturize within 3 minutes of exiting shower. 

I love the help of a physical exfoliator pad like @cleanlogic

…also they’re a brand you can just get behind. 
☑ affordable
☑ accessible
☑ sustainable
☑ reusable
☑ brand with braille 
🏆The goal is to exfoliate the area regularly and moisturize often. KP is a chronic condition so be consistent to see a big difference in the texture of your skin!

SBS blossomed from a gap I constantly saw as a Dermatology PA between the medical Dermatology and esthetics worlds.

These pads fill a gap as well! I couldn’t find the ingredients paired at a pricepoint and accessibility so I searched for a year for the right mix. They’re here all in one place to make skincare custom, easy, and accessible for busy people... like you.

The goal is to make skincare easy for you so I made the perfect blend.

NEW SbS Daily Toning Pad. $30
👉🏼Use once a daily in the AM; start 2-3 times a week
Why? 🤷🏻‍♀️
1 Prevent and treat breakouts
2 Decrease discoloration from breakouts + sun damage

Weekly Brightening Peel Pad $45
Step up your routine AKA next level skincare
1-2 times a week at night
(Skip retinoid on these nights)

Why use?🤷🏻‍♀️
1 Exfoliation /Anti-aging
2 Brown spots
3 Redness
4 Overall skin health

Ways to Remove Makeup

1 Oil Cleanse ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ simply the best.
The genius: OIL dissolves OIL.
Can be a one-step cleanse and moisturize in one without leaving a greasy feeling, especially in winter. Most importantly: Protects the protective moisture barrier on skin.

If you don’t love Pond’s Cold Cream or want a squeeze/pump option the Neutrogena eye makeup remover lotion or a creamy cleanser is a great option.

2 Micellar Water- fine but need A LOT of solution to get the job done IMO. Doesn’t remove make-up that well IMO either.

3 Cleansing Balms 👎🏼 dislike because thick. Basically emollients so HAVE to use another cleanser after to remove the excess.

4 Water activated clothes 💧 I like these for travel! They don’t seem to remove eye make-up as well, BUT i think they are a great on-the-go for cleansing skin.

5 Creamy cleansers 🧴I LOVE. the good ones remove make-up AND cleanse. The Alastin Ultra Calming Cleanser does it all. I think so worth it for $45.

6 Liquid eye makeup remover 👀 - I like and used for years. Need a cotton pad. Great for eye area, but not rest of face

7 Micellar water Wipes - SURPRISE! if the other alternative is going to bed with makeup then wipes BUT they MUST be juicy. Stick to micellar water.

(8 makeup remover lotion… kind of fits into 1 and 5) … it’s added at the end because Betty grabbed it and ran off with it when I was making this, but I found it!!

These are the treatments I got in 2021!
You can get a treatment AS OFTEN AS every MONTH.

That can be a lot so PRIORITIZE. Here’s a guide for those age 30+ (but you can of course start by age 25…. I wish I had!)

2-3 microneedling yearly
1-2 BBL laser yearly

Start here AND with your daily skincare routine of cleanser, SPF, moisturizer, Vitamin C in AM, retinoid in PM.

THEN can add:

botox 2-3 times yearly
dermaplaning, microdermabrasion, chemical peels, etc on other other months
deeper lasers and chemical peels
Fillers as needed

*botox can often be done the same month as other treatments

All treatments fall into 1 of 2 categories (and sometimes both):

1.Reverse, prevent and correct skin tone/discoloration
OR
2.Improve skin texture- scarring, fine lines, wrinkles

This goes for topical ingredients too! In-Office treatments are where you’ll see the most in reversal/improvement.

🧐 CHEMICAL EXFOLIATORS

2 products I’m trying that serve the same purpose!

One is a cream and one is a serum so they will be used at different parts of the routine.

Both are examples of chemical exfoliators.

🧪 glycolic, lactic, salicylic, etc

🔬 It’s important to know these ingredients are often in toners and very likely to be in cleansers that advertise for acne.

⭐️ The takeaway⭐️
know which active ingredients are in each step of your routine so you’re not repeating❤️

Specific takeaway: With these 2 I would skip a toner to start out!!

Too much of a good thing…

will compromise your skin’s protective barrier and cause burning and stinging… and sometimes more breakouts.

🛑 burning, redness, stinging, etc AKA the signs to skip the actives and cleanse and moisturize only.

👊🏼 you got this!

How I know my work here is done:

Tinted sunscreen ONLY as your makeup!

Means you feel 100% confident in your skin.

Healthy skin radiates and doesn't need to be covered.

My goal for you is to feel confident with sunscreen only as your makeup.

TIP: Mix your foundation or regular makeup with a tinted sunscreen and add less and less until all you wear is susncreen!!

Usually this takes about 6 months if we’re starting from scratch!

Some sunscreen starts out white and rubs in BUT there are better options. We don’t have to live that way to have a mineral/physical sunscreen anymore.

This LaRoche Posay Anthelios mineral moisturizing cream and sunscreen never looked normal… even a few hours later. It’s just pasty.

Smell is as big part of skincare as texture is. The smell of the Hyla B5 Serum got me. I couldn’t do it.

In general I ♥️ La Roche Posay.

👎but these were just not for me

TODAY IS THE DAY ~ Skin Study at the untrained edit at 6pm

Treatment seasons upon us
🥶(It’s getting cold) so start planning where you are getting your treatments done.

In general, 2 microneedling and 2 BBL laser
treatments that target the brown pigment in the skin from past ☀️ are recommended based of the medical research available.

More or other treatments are recommended based off of your specific concerns and needs. That’s where a custom consult is helpful!
