MUST HAVE: Micro Needle Derma Roller

Micro Needle Roller
I will never use another product without rolling my Micro Needle Roller first! The products I loved so much to start, like my iS Clinical Active Serum, take on a whole new life with this amazing little rolling pin. I mean I can actually FEEL my serum seep in. The serum by itself already gives a slight tingling feeling. But when combined with the roller, the tingle is intensified and I can feel it penetrating deep into my pores. I was going to wait until I had worked my way up to the 1.5 mm before I even considered this a “must have”, but I am so thrilled with 0.5mm I couldn’t wait to share!

Micro Needle Roller HeadWhat is a Micro Needle Derma Roller? Well, it’s this amazing little device that rolls around 192 fine needles to penetrate the skin sufficiently enough to stimulate collagen and elastin production that results in the improvement of the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and stretch marks. In addition to triggered collagen synthesis, needle rollers also help you benefit more from your skin care products. The small micro-channels that the needle roller creates during use are proven to help increase the absorption of the active ingredients in creams, lotions, and serums by up to 1000% —and the higher the absorption rate, the higher the overall efficiency of your already favorite products! The channels close after several minutes, locking in the anti-aging nutrients and anti-oxidants.

I have three pronounced chicken pox scars from my childhood that I assumed I would just have for life. My derm always told me I couldn’t do anything for them except maybe try to fill them with Restalyn or some other filler. I could spend thousands of dollars, but it would never be a permanent fix. In just two months of use, I can already see them fainter and less pronounced. I can also see a difference in pore size, and my skin texture is much smoother. It really is quite remarkable!

I’ve also just started using my roller on a terrible scar I have across my chest from a recent ORIF surgery to repair a shattered collar bone. It’s still too soon but I’ll be sure to post before and after pics and keep you posted on my progress there. Like I said, I wasn’t considering sharing this product until later but I just couldn’t wait!

More Magazine’s Fall Beauty Shopping List

More Magazine's Fall Beauty Shopping ListFor the fourth year in a row, More Magazine asked More’s Opinionista Reader Panel to become grooming guinea pigs, testing falls’s new fragrances, cosmetics, and hair and skin products. To our excitement, Dermalogica Skinperfect Primer SPF 30 made it to #3 on this year’s Fall Beauty Shopping List! Keep reading to learn what these testers had to say about one SkinMedix’s favorite new products!

If reviews written in all caps are any indication of how beloved a product is, then testers were mad for this primer! “SO LOVED THIS PRODUCT,” said one. “I ADORED it,” said a second. “LOVED this product,” raved a third. An all-in-one sunscreen, makeup primer and skin treatment (the formula contains free-radical-fighting antioxidants and collagen stimulating peptides), it can be worn alone, as testers seemed to prefer, or under makeup to extend its longevity. “Great creamy texture and invisible coverage,” explained one tester. Another, who did top the primer with foundation, reported, “It was amazing how well it made my makeup stay on. O work outside in the sun, so for my makeup to still look good at the end of the day is a miracle.”

Use Dermalogica Skinperfect Primer SPF 30 to smooth away fine lines, brighten and prime for flawless skin and to prep for make-up application. Velvety silicones create an instantly smooth surface. Neutral tint helps balance tone and enhance luminosity and radiance. Peptides and AGE Smart actives help firm and shield against MMP and free radical damage, as sunscreens shield against sun damage. Wear alone over your moisturizer for visible smoothness and luminosity, or after moisturizer application and before foundation to help fill fine lines for a lasting make-up finish!

Beauty School Tips

Beauty School TipsLook your radiant best with these head-to-toe tips collected from the past 75 years of beauty issues!

Pretty Face

  • Don’t touch your face unnecessarily. Breakouts can be caused by your own fingers.
  • Apply cream or cleanser by lightly pressing upward—never down. The delicate skin sags easily enough in time.
  • For the best color match, test foundation and powder either on your face or neck (the inside of your wrist is too pale).
  • Use a concealer that is slightly lighter than your skintone, to cover up redness or blemishes.

Glowing Skin

  • The best time to apply lotion is right after a shower or bath, when skin is still damp – We recommend SkinMedica TNS Body Lotion for silky, smooth skin.
  • When drawing a bath, scatter bubbles or crystals directly under the faucet before turning on the water, but drop in perfume oil while the tub is filling.
  • Beautiful skin starts from within. Include lots of vegetables, fruit and water in your diet.
  • Overdo it with your perfume? Dab rubbing alcohol with a cotton ball on your skin. The alcohol will cut the scent without altering it.

Bright Eyes

  • Treat your eye area gently. This is the most delicate part of your face. Cleanse with care; blot, never rub.
  • Reduce puffy eyes by splashing with cold water or applying a cold compress (ice cubes in a washcloth): 15 seconds on, 15 seconds off.
  • When you put on mascara, don’t lower your chin—that’s how mascara gets on your lid.
  • Get eyeshadow to stay in place by priming lids with moisturizer and foundation – We recommend Murad Skin Perfecting Primer Dewy Finish
  • Always use your ring finger to apply moisturizer or concealer to the eye area. It puts the least amount of pressure on the skin.

Lovely Lips

  • Get lips soft and smooth by using a damp, warm washcloth at night to rub off the flaky dry bits; follow with a coat of lip conditioner – We recommend PCA Skin Peptide Lip Therapy.
  • Ease the evening switch to a redder or darker lipstick by applying it over and blending it into your daytime color.
  • To make lipstick last longer, allow it to set for a few minutes after applying, blot lips with tissue and dust them with powder, then apply another coat.
  • Cheeks feeling flushed? Put on a bold color lipstick; a neutral shade will only make red cheeks stand out.

Model Hands

  • Shape nails with an emery board, filing sides toward center—never straight across—and rounding off edges
  • What works for your face works for your hands. Remove age spots with facial brightening cream – We recommend PCA Skin Brightening Therapy with TrueTone.
  •  The fast way to remove nail polish: Hold cotton saturated with polish remover firmly on your nail for a few seconds to let it start working, then wipe nail clean.
  • Apply polish starting at the pinky, working toward the thumb to avoid dragging your hand across wet nails.

Happy Feet

  • To counteract dryness, massage feet with a lanolin-based lotion, kneading it deeply into your instep, then massage soles, heels, top surface and around nails – We recommend Murad Soothing Skin, Lip, and Cuticle Care Salon Size.
  • Before using a pumice stone or foot file to remove a callus, be sure to soak your foot in warm water for at least 5 minutes.
  • To prevent ingrown nails, trim toenails straight across, not down into the corners.
  • Relieve swollen feet by soaking them alternately in hot water (for 3 minutes), then cold water (for 1 minute), for a total of 15 minutes.

Managing Symptoms of Eczema & Psoriasis

Eczema & PsoriasisEczema and psoriasis are some of the most challenging skin conditions encountered by skin care professionals. Often, there will simply be a little red rash on the skin and you may be left scratching your own head trying to figure out how it came to be. Up to 20% of the world’s children suffer from eczema I and II, and up to 3% of adults suffer from either eczema or psoriasis III Given that the world population just reached the 7 billion mark, that’s a lot of people!

The truth is, it isn’t known exactly what causes eczema or psoriasis. The good news is, more and more is being learned about these inflammatory skin diseases and strategies are being developed to effectively manage their symptoms. It is important to note that neither condition is contagious, nor are they infections; and they aren’t transmitted by physical contact or exposure. The origins of eczema and psoriasis are genetic. However, the triggers that cause their distressing and visible symptoms may include stress and environmental factors. Eczema and psoriasis create impaired barrier functions and increased inflammation, so “your goal will be to protect and repair,” explains Dr. Claudia C. Aguirre of Skin Inc. Magazine. “Remember to always check first with your physician for contraindications to medications and therapies, because some ingredients may counteract each other. For example, salicylic acid may seem a likely choice for exfoliating psoriatic skin, but could in fact, inactivate a common topical treatment for psoriasis,” she warns.

Gentle cleansing and exfoliation is crucial to allow the penetration of rich, emollient moisturizers used on dry, sensitive skin. Use anti-inflammatory ingredients, such as red hogweed, ginger, oats and chamomile, coupled with barrier-repairing oils, including evening primrose, borage, argan and sea buckthorn. Try PCA Skin Dry Skin Relief Bar pHaze 10ideal for cleansing dry or more sensitive skin. We recommend PCA Skin ReBalance pHaze 17, for its ability to help soothe reddened or irritated skin. Or try iS Clinical Body Complexto help soothe even the most compromised skin conditions with natural acids, Retinol, Vitamin B5 and other soothing antioxidants. Avoid harsh exfoliants and detergents, and look for ingredients, such as lactic acid. Finishing a treatment with a physical sunscreen, such as zinc oxide or titanium dioxide will ensure that harmful UV rays do not cause further damage. Try Cellex-C Sun Care SPF 30 Plus — silky-smooth and PABA-free, it provides light moisture in combination with photo-aging protection.

Light therapy is another management option for those suffering from psoriasis and eczema. Light therapy is known for its ability to promote blood flow and decrease inflammation. These benefits help to diminish and lighten the redness often associated with eczema and psoriasis. Try Bio Red Light LED Therapy — a non-invasive, at-home light therapy device. It encourages natural cell renewal without requiring down time for healing, making it perfect for those with a busy lifestyle.

There is no cure for eczema or psoriasis, but there are ways to manage symptoms. Although eczema and psoriasis are clinically distinct from one another, they do share some common features that may can addressed in the treatment room and at home. For more information on the treatment and management of eczema or psoriasis, visit SkinInc.com or ask your physician.
