Exfoliators

Exfoliators remove dead skin cells, brighten skin, even skin tone; also makes you feel amazing!

𝗖𝗵𝗲𝗺𝗶𝗰𝗮𝗹 𝘃 𝗣𝗵𝘆𝘀𝗶𝗰𝗮𝗹

Use a physical exfoliator 1-3 times weekly to remove dead skin cells, and gently encourage blackheads and clogged pores to leave your skin. I prefer in shower due to gritty nature.

Physical exfoliators are about texture. Think the sand near the ocean on a beach.

My favorite physical exfoliator for the face: Vasanti BrightenUp! $34

For the body, I love any sea salt scrub.

𝘛𝘪𝘱: use a warm washcloth as a physical exfoliator especially over bumps you want to pop... instead of squeezing 🙂

𝘊𝘩𝘦𝘮𝘪𝘤𝘢𝘭 exfoliators are about active ingredients: alpha-hydroxyl acids (AHAs) or beta-hydroxy acids (BHAs).

AHA = glycolic acid, lactic acid

BHA = salicylic acid

Chemical exfoliators are sometimes mixed with these physical exfoliators or used alone.

Overexfoliating or overdrying skin causes body to produce MORE oil so moisturize and don’t exfoliate too often... Li𝘴𝘵𝘦𝘯 𝘵𝘰 𝘺𝘰𝘶𝘳 S𝘬𝘪𝘯

The Obagi Professional-C Exfoliator + Mask is great for hyperpigmentation and not sensitive skin. It have 30% Vitamin C and works for sure. Even with my normal-oily skin I can inly do it about twice monthly.

For sensitive skin, La Roche-Posay is always my recommendation, and see the exfoliator for sensitive skin in the Shop.

Tutorials

Did you know? There are not that many ingredients in skincare.

The marketing and different mixtures = the expansive skincare market.

When I create a #customskincare routine, I’m grouping ingredients in the right concentration and vehicle (serum v moisturizer) for YOU, your skin and goals.

I don’t get excited about a product until I turn it around and check out the active ingredients👏🏼

Today’s goal: make everyone you encounter feel seen, worthy, and respected💗
Repeat, and make it a daily habit.

The @rakfoundation is a nonprofit with the goal of making kindness the norm, and the belief that kindness can be taught. They offer resources and classroom curriculum too!

I’m really thankful @thriveglobal brought this official day to my attention. For some positivity, check out the full article… there’s a quote from yours truly:

⤷ I can’t go without thanking you for the kindness you show me here. There have been many timely messages throughout the last year that served as pick-me-ups on hard days.

You remind me that KINDNESS is CONTAGIOUS.

Back to basics!

I love delving into the details of products and ingredients, but if you’re new here this is where to focus!

These are the steps of a medical grade skincare routine ❤️ to
- improve breakouts and sun damage
- prevent and protect from future breakouts and sun damage

The GREAT news is skincare is #efficient!

I offer several ways to help match the right products for your skin.

▫️one-on-one consults through sydneygivens.com/consulting

2 are less formal and sign up on linktree in bio!

▫️group consults #skincareschool (1 hour)

▫️FACE Time Quick Consults (15 min)

I’m always here for you as a guide to the overwhelming skincare world. The best part of working with a Dermatology PA is I will tell you when you also need to make an appointment to discuss prescriptions at your local Derm office. (That’s as far as the medical advice goes 👍🏼)

A #comprehensiveskincare routine is the secret to lasting success and clear, healthy skin.

“I’m officially 29 weeks pregnant and I never DREAMED my skin would look this amazing. I used to cake on makeup to cover up the redness and active breakouts, now all I use is a little MD Solar Sciences BB cream/ sunscreen. I recently posted a photo to my IG/ Facebook and was flooded with friends and family commenting on my beautiful skin! I never could have imagined my skin would actually GLOW. I’ve seen such an improvement with the little changes we made a few weeks ago. This is even while my diet has been a wreck- dairy and peanut butter which typically inflame my acne.”

All on a pregnancy safe routine. Products and ingredients in a comprehensive skincare routine compliment each other and get RESULTS!
