Retinol: Why you should be using it

retinol eye

Hello everyone!

I wanted to explain to you all the benefits of retinol. There are many different skin types that can be improved with retinol. 

1. Aging skin: Retinol rebuilds collagen to tighten skin and help prevent future wrinkles.

2. Sun-damaged skin: Retinol works as an antioxidant to replenish damaged skin and lighten sun spots.

3. Acne prone skin: Retinol prevents free radicals from entering the skin, therefore clearing pores and fighting breakouts.

It’s a miracle in a bottle!

What to expect after an eMatrix treatment

Hey guys!

Many people are worried about down time when it comes to beauty treatments. The eMartrix treatment does come with minimal downtime but nothing nearly as bad as getting a surgical face lift.

Day 1: After the procedure, your skin will be red and appear irritated. You will be advised to keep an SPF of 30 or higher on throughout your healing process, as well as to keep a healing ointment on the treated area. 

Day 2: Your skin will have checkered looking marks where the current was applied. The surrounding skin will no longer look red/swollen. 

Day 3: Your skin will be less red and may be starting to dry out.

Day 4: The peeling process will start to begin on the areas that were treated. 

Day 5: Your skin will continue to peel for a couple more days. You will be advised to keep it moist and protected from the sun.

After the peeling has stopped, your skin will continue to rebuild collagen, level out scarring, and help improve pigmentation. You can have another treatment in a month from your last one.

Is your skin breaking out? It may be your makeup…

Hey guys!

I just want to take a minute and talk about break outs. Our skin is the biggest organ on our bodies and we need to treat it well!

When shopping for cosmetics, it’s important to know what is in the product. I myself have sensitive skin and get clogged pores that turn into blemishes with certain makeup brands. It can be avoided!

Here are a list of chemicals to avoid when looking for cosmetics:

1. BHA and BHT

2. Coal tar dyes: p-phenylenediamine and colours listed as “CI” followed by a five digit number

4. Dibutyl phthalate

5. Formaldehyde-releasing preservatives

6. Parabens

7. Parfum (a.k.a. fragrance)

8. PEG compounds

9. Petrolatum

10. Siloxanes

11. Sodium laureth sulfate

12. Triclosan

Just something to think about! Happy Blogging!
