Retinol Our Fountain of Youth

January 22nd, 2018 • Posted by Retinol Our Fountain of Youth • Permalink

Retinol is great for normalizing our skin's cell growth cycle. As we get older, our skin's cell growth cycle can slow down, so by adding Retinol to our regimen, this will lead our skin to the final stage of sloughing-off dead skin cells. Once our dead skin cells are shed, our skin will look and feel fresher. IMAGE Skincare Retinols are a Vitamin A derivative, and although it is not a pharmaceutical Retinoid better known as Retin-A, IMAGE Retinols are gentler than a Retinoid and can be used my most people without irritation. IMAGE Retinol will help normalize our skin cell cycles leading it to reveal fresher skin and minimize the appearance of large pores, fine lines and wrinkles.
Retinol also stimulates collagen and elastin production, improves firmness, fades hyperpigmentation (dark uneven skin tone/spots) and helps with certain types of Acne. It is imperative however to use a daily sunscreen of at least SPF 30. Retinol will make you more sun sensitve, and as you are doing something good for your skin, you can cause damage such as sun spots or sunburns if you do not protect it with sunscreen.
Two of my favorite Retinols are IMAGE Skincare AGELESS Total Overnight Retinol Mask and the AGELESS Total Repair Creme.

Top 3 Reasons to Get a Facial

July 11th, 2017 • Posted by SKINERGIZE • Permalink

Who doesn't like receiving a relaxing facial? There are many reasons why it is enjoyable to melt into the Esthetician chair, however, facials are also an essential part to having radiant skin. We have three reasons why everyone should come in to experience this one-of-a-kind treatment.


For starters, a facial gives your skin a deep cleaning. Think of all the things your skin comes into contact with in a day. From outdoor pollutants to makeup, it can all build up. A facial gets rid of dead skin, and impurities bringing out your natural skin tone. Plus, it keeps your pores from making too much oil.  Balancing your skin's oil production, can help reduce breakouts. The exfoliation process also helps your skin stay firm and tight, keeping those wrinkles at bay.

Stress relieving

It's not a coincidence that you feel refreshed after a facial. Not only do facials exfoliate and moisturize your skin, the treatments also increase blood flow and promote circulation. For many women, taking a few minutes to get a facial is "me time," a time to relax and forget about work, life's challenges, and home duties. The whole treatment is a stress reliever.


Routine facials can help fight wrinkles, but there are certain additions you can tack on to help your skin stay wrinkle free.  Advanced treatments such as Peels, Microdermabrasion and products that contain plant-derived stem cells, retinols and peptides are known to stimulate and promote collagen growth, which keeps your skin from sagging.  The new Biomolecular Sheet Masks help with hydration and pigmentation concerns.

There are many different kinds of facials. We would be happy to suggest the best one for you.

Lashing Out - Opt for Natural, Longer, Lush Lashes

January 28th, 2015 • Posted by Skinergize Skin Care • Permalink

Full, long and healthy eyelashes are all the rage today! From the early false eyelashes that were made of human hair woven through fine gauze for Hollywood movie stars, to store-bought false lashes, and now the salon applied eyelash extensions - the lash craze is here to stay. There is another method to enhance your natural eyelash appearance, but let's go through a quick lesson on eyelashes and their growth cycle. Eyelashes are hair, so treating your lashes as you would treat the hair on your head is no different. The hair growth cycle has three phases know as ACT. A for Anagen which is the growth phase. C for Catagen which is the falling out stage. T for Telogen which is the resting stage, such as the hair on your head or lash line. The scalp hair cycles range from 6 months to 7 years, and eyelash cycles have a much shorter range of 30-60 days. In other words, lashes grow out and turn over on average every 45-60 days. Treating your natural lashes with a lash conditioner such as Jane Iredale's Pure Lash, Lash Extender & Conditioner will prevent breakage while encouraging growth. Grande Naturals Grande Lash-MD is infused with amino acids, peptides, and vitamins to promote longer, fuller and thicker lashes within 4-6 weeks. Using both of these products as directed will encourage your own natural lashes to grow long and strong. These products can be used at home, without the need to return to salon appointments to replace fallen lash extensions at a very costly price. Store-bought false eyelashes applied with glue, can ruin your natural lashes over time, leaving you with little to no eyelashes. Conditioning your natural lashes in the comfort of your own home, not only saves you money and time, but will keep your eyelashes healthy, long and beautiful for years to come!
