Wearing the newly necessary PPE mask is causing a new form of breakout caused by friction, sweat and lack of circulation. Depending on the design of your mask the breakouts are usually usually in areas of contact-jaw, cheekbones and nose.
Tips to counter act MASKNE...
-Wear a clean mask every day
-Wash cloth cotton masks daily-don't dry with dryer sheets
-Don't wear makeup under the mask. Only make up your eyes!
-Drink your water! Now wearing a mask drinking our usual quota of water takes more effort
-Fewer skincare products works better than aggressive scrubbing. Applying your typical acne or anti again serums under your mask will actually intensity them. The occlusion of your mask over skin treated with benzo or retinol makes the skin more reactive. Save those for nighttime treatment.
-Dont over-wash your face as this will contribute to the imbalance
FACE it... life can be stressful. Especially during times like we are living in right now. There are so many unknowns that our stress levels might be at an all-time high.
However, while stress is normal, and everyone experiences it, chronic stress can have a lasting effect on your mental and physical health. It can take a toll on our bodies and mind. You might feel emotional, have a hard time focusing, feel anxious, or even withdraw mentally as the brain “overheats” and copes by turning off for a moment.
This all means that we are flooded. 'Flooding' is this extremely uncomfortable feeling of being overwhelmed mentally and emotionally (super stressed).
So, when feeling stressed the best step we can take for ourselves is to pause and recognize these 'flooded' feelings and take these 10 steps to help reduce these feelings:
Don't respond. Walk away. When feeling flooded, it's easy to "snap" response instead of really taking time to formulate an answer.
This Monday we will talk about boundaries. I hope to see you there.

The benefits of carbon dioxide to the skin have been well documented over many years in numerous studies, as well as personal testimonials describing its remarkable anti-aging and corrective properties. This treatment provides a new level of skin care perfection.
Skin lightening – Carboxy activates blood circulation, which discharges toxins and has a great impact on whitening facial skin. It not only treats hyperpigmentation, but also enhances overall skin tone.
Elasticity – Carboxy CO2 Gel promotes active protein synthesis and metabolism of skin cells. It enhances elasticity and prevents wrinkles.
Acne Healing- It effectively addresses acne problems by activating fat metabolism and blood circulation, balancing oil production, discharging skin toxins and reducing inflammation. It also lightens post-acne marks.
Slimming and firming – Phospholipids are a primary component of the skin layers. By increasing the layer density, the use of carboxy treatments creates a slimming and firming effect. It also reduces the subcutaneous layer, which usually appears as under-eye bags or lumps on the face.
Moisturizing – Supplying moisture to the skin is critical. Furthermore, keeping the moisture within the keratin layers of the skin is important to maintain elasticity

Hello my friend,
I want to see how you are navigating today so I am checking-in. During this time, there’s a lot of uncertainty, but try to remember that social distancing doesn’t have to mean social isolating. It’s an opportunity to be present with our loved ones, organize, do a little spring cleaning and get outside for a walk or a hike. It’s also an excellent time for self-care.
Expensive vs Effective. Buying skincare products at drugstores IS expensive but not for the reasons you think. Drugstore products are generally benign (causing no harm if improperly used), low concentration of active ingredients and big on packaging and marketing. The higher end drugstore products (is that a category??) are expensive in comparison to the bottles left and right on the shelf that make no miraculous claims. But why they are really expensive is because you will invest more money, over and over, purchasing more products that likely will Not be effective in your skincare goals.
If you want to see a change in your skin invest wisely. See a professional,commit to facials and purchase their recommendations. This strategy will be Less expensive in the long run, more effective and you will have an invested partner in your skin improvement journey.
Ah, the pursuit of eternal youth. Nutrition, fitness and facials are all avenues we explore in our society to pursue eternal youth. We have all heard that ‘eating clean’, working out (cardio and strength training) and consistent skincare, to maintain volume and firmness, are ways in which we can maintain our youthful look. As we age we lose volume (fat) in the face causing the skin to sag. To counteract this downward droop we strive to “lift” the skin by increasing Collagen production. One way to increase collagen production is to intentionally cause a micro-injury so the skin heals back tighter. In professional skincare there are several trending therapies to inspire collagen production. Today we are going to explore the pros and cons of 3: Microneedling/CIT, Dermarollers and Nano Needling.
Microneedling /Collagen Induction Therapy: This technique has been made famous under the name, Vampire Facial. It utilizes a stylus-type device with needles that “stamps” channels into the skin to stimulate collagen production. This technique is known to lift & tighten the skin, reduce wrinkles and help shrink acne scars. This expensive and invasive therapy often requires a numbing agent, down-time and sun avoidance.
My goal is to be your Age Management Retreat. Ladies, I speak your Age! I'm 58 and have encountered, or will soon, the aging issues we 'd like to avoid.
