Clear Up Rosacea Without Medication


Sharon Elizabeth for skin care in Mill Valley, Tiburon, Sausalito, Novato, San RafaelRosacea is a skin condition characterized by facial redness and small, pus-filled bumps appearing across the forehead, nose, cheeks and chin. The condition is most likely to affect adults older than 30 – especially fair-skinned individuals prone to blushing. Although a number of topical and oral treatments are available to combat rosacea, simple changes in diet and lifestyle may be enough to improve your skin without the use of medication.

Step 1:

Reduce your intake of rosacea-triggering foods and steaming-hot meals.

Ultrasound as a Facial Treatment

Aged skin has many defined characteristics: loss of elasticity, hormonal discolorations, dryness, dehydration, sun damage, fine lines, wrinkles and broken capillaries. Every woman is different and the approaches you take to a great anti-aging treatment are not the same for women as a whole.

Initially, chemical peels and microdermabrasion were at the forefront of progressive treatments. These two types of exfoliation are still used and valued because they give the skin a more youthful appearance by diminishing fine lines and evening the skin tone.

Reversing Sun Damage and Hyper-Pigmentation

Sun Damage, dark spots, melasma, hyper-pigmentation, pigmentation damage
Our skin gets its pigment from melanin that is made by the body and determines the color of your skin, hair and eyes. An over-production of melanin (hyper-pigmentation) shows up as brown patches and spots.

Hyper-pigmentation is caused by both intrinsic and extrinsic factors. The intrinsic cause stems from imbalances in the hormone levels and is very difficult to treat.

The external factors include excessive sun exposure, wounds, skin treatments and procedures that might not suit one's skin and anything that stimulates the increased production of melanin.

Skin Care Tips for your Wedding Day

You will be doing a lot of eating, stressing, drinking alcohol and staying up late in the weeks before your wedding - make it a point to take care of yourself during this phase. Water is the simplest and most effective defense against getting sick, over tired and cranky. I’ve heard so many times from brides that they stopped taking care of themselves while doing all the planning and running around while creating their perfect wedding.

Microdermabrasion vs. Ultrasound for Fine Lines and Facial Wrinkles


Ultrasound Facial in Sausalito and SonomaMicrodermabrasion is a popular technique for removing fine lines and facial wrinkles. In microdermabrasion, a trained technician applies a wand that provides a steady spray of abrasive crystals directly on wrinkled or pigmented skin.

Acting a little like a miniature sandblaster, these crystals lift the outermost layers of the skin—it is to be hoped, without any bleeding—and allow new skin to grow back in without creases, fine lines, wrinkles, or age spots.

Microdermabrasion is a kinder, gentler alternative to cosmetic surgery.

Anti Aging Skin Care

Sausalito Skin Care, Sonoma Skin CareLiposomes, ceramides, peptides …. these are some of the many ingredients that we can find today in cosmetic products and because there are far too many, I have concentrated in the most well known anti-aging skincare ingredients.

Understanding how these ingredients in cosmetic products work and what they can do for your skin will be invaluable and will give a realistic vision when you go in search of cosmetic products.

However, if you are still unsure of which skin care ingredients will be more suitable for your skin, please consult your Esthetician.

Natural Skin Care and Makeup

Anti-Aging skin care in Sausalito and SonomaFor thousands of years, people have experimented with the healing and rejuvenating effects of various, naturally occurring herbs, oils and plant life. Over time, some of these techniques have fallen by the wayside, but others have been validated by scientific studies in recent years, leading many cosmetics companies and medical spas to incorporate these all-natural ingredients into their own treatment lines.

Chamomile, a member of the sunflower family, has proven to be an effective, anti-inflammatory skin treatment, while sap from the Aloe Vera plant is frequently used in skin treatments to promote healing and skin rejuvenation.

Men are rough and tough, right? So why would any man be thinking about anti-aging skin care for himself? Aren't men supposed to be above all of that "me" stuff?

Although that's a common perception, it misses one essential point; Anti- aging skin care for men isn't just about looking good. There is no doubt that more and more men are interested in looking their best. Good care of the skin is as much about health as it is about looks. While men appreciate a reduction in wrinkles, age spots, inflammation, etc.
