QUESTION: What is a good daily beauty routine?

Your beauty regime depends strongly on your age. A basic skincare regime would be Cleans, Tone, and Moisturize. This is just your basics and if you have no real signs of aging this would a good place to start. SkinRxClinic has a 3 step Clinical Skincare System containing: Arnica Cleanser- a mild, non-sensitizing, low foaming facial wash easily removes makeup and other residue. Hydra Essence Toner- Free from alcohols and chemicals, this soothing “drink of water” for your skin will hydrate, plump and tone. Skin Recovery Crème- a lightweight, non-greasy, hydrating moisturizer is saturated with ingredients to hydrate, moisturize and repair your skin. This is your very basic 3 step AM & PM regime. If you are looking for something a little more preventive you can add an eye cream & serum. A 5 step regime AM & PM is all you need. SkinRxClinic has a great eye cream called Eyebright Intensive eye cream and the Face Firming Complex is a great serum loaded with anti-oxidant to fight free radicals, DMAE to lift and tight, Ester C to Bright and lighten and ALA which refines and resurfaces the skin. It is a great all in one anti-aging serum. If you are ready to get serious about your skincare regime www.SkinRxClinic.com is worth looking into.

QUESTION: I tend to get really bad dry skin around my t-zone and nose so my skin always looks ruff and uneven. I’ve tried moisturizer but it always seems to comes back during the day…Any ideas or suggestions?

This is tough because most of the time the t-zone is oily and the main concern is reducing oil production. Your situation is reverse. You say you are moisturizing but getting no results…this is because the moisturizer can not penetrate the dead dry skin. I suggest using an exfoliating product. I have had great results with SkinRxClinic Microdermabrasion Peel. It contains Corundum Crystals (same crystals that are used in the machines at a Doctor’s office or Salon) and it is enriched with natural hydrators, Vitamins A, C, E and other anti-oxidants, best of all it is all natural without harsh chemicals, fragrances, oils or drugs! You would just need a little bit, maybe a pea size and you would lightly rub the micro crystals over the areas where you have dead skin build up and it will polish the dead skin away allowing your moisturizer to penetrate and as a result hydrating the skin. It is inexpensive and lasts a long time.They also have a Skin Recovery Creme that is lightweight and hydrating. It is worth checking out…go to www.SkinRxClinic.com reference “micro” in the search box and the product and information will come up.

QUESTION: I am currently using the Skin Recovery Crème which I love. I am 40 years old and fighting mild acne and wrinkles…please help, not sure which issue I should be focusing on and would like a remedy for both. Thank you in advance for your help.

I am so glad you emailed me because there is a solution that will address these issues! The Skin Recovery Crème is great product…so you are on the right path. I recommend adding the Glyco-Lactic Gel Cleanser it is AHA cleanser that will help refine the skin and combat the signs of aging. Glycolic Acid will help with large pores as well as the breakouts. I would also incorporate the Face Firming Complex into your regime. It has DMAE which helps strengthen the muscle structure of the skin, ALA-(Alpha Lapoic Acid) which refines and resurfaces the skin, C-ester which Brightens, Lightens and Tightens the skin and CoQ10 which boosts skin ability to repair and regenerate and reduces free radical damage. So that pretty much covers it. You have your 3 step regime…Glyco-Lactic Gel Cleanser, Face Firming Complex, Skin Recovery Crème! The last product you would need to complete the regime is an eye cream…I like Visible Lift Eye Gel (but I prefer a gel) if you are looking for a cream the Eyebright Intensive Eye Cream is a good choice. Hope this help, please let me know if I can answer any other questions you may have.

QUESTION: What facial products would you recommend for my skin? I used to have flawless porcelain skin, but then I got acne as a result of medication, and while I still have an even white complexion, I now have some small red scars and I guess just some everyday pockmarks, nothing too big. I figure if I use a light, non-liquid foundation (as my skin isn’t oily, if anything, it’s the tiniest bit dry) I can smooth out those imperfections and regain the confidence that I used to have with my old perfect skin.

I have the perfect product for you! It is a Liquid Mineral Foundation Base from Mineral Secrets that’s goes on light and provides great coverage…to help hide those imperfections! You can follow that up with a Loose Mineral Powder if you would like or you can use the Liquid Mineral foundation alone. Its really just preference. Either way you will get great long lasting coverage at a affordable price with this easy-to-use hypoallergenic liquid powder that is oil free and non-pore clogging to help prevent breakouts. It is a natural sun screen (approximately 15 protection)and has a velvety smooth texture. If you have porcelain skin “linen” might be the best shade for you but you can check it out for yourself. Go to www.SkinRxClinic.com type “mineral” into the search box and the products and a description will come up.

QUESTION: About two weeks ago I had an allergic reaction to a Biore cleanser and it totally dried my skin out….now it wont go away! I started using Mary Kay extra emollient night cream and it went away, But a few days later it was back again and the Mary Kay cream is starting to break me out. Ive spent so much money in the past few days trying to find something that will work. Ceptaphil moisturizing cream, vitamin E skin oil, Vitamin E cream, Neutrogena continuous hydration. I cant even wear foundation. I really dont want to go to the doctor especially over dry skin. Do you have any advice?

OK, so here is the problem…you have stripped the skin of oil and it dried up like a prune. Now you have been trying to moisturize double time to rehydrate the dehydrated skin. Here is the problem…you are using products that do not have the ability to penetrate the dead skin that has built and as a result the moisturizer is sitting on the surface of the skin preventing it to breath and clogging the pores and as a result causing breakouts! Here is the solution…re-hydration! You need a lightweight, oil-free, paraben-free, fragrance-free product. It is as simple as that. All of those things can and are irritating your skin and preventing any moisture to reach past the top layer of skin and that’s not what you need to repair. You need a product that will penetrate through the epidermis into the dermis. I am sorry you have invested your time and money and have yet to get results but I can help. SkinRxClinic has Professional Strength Skincare products at affordable prices and if you decide to follow my advice you will be on the path to clear, healthy, HYDRATED skin! Go to www.SkinRxClinic.com and search for these products…Glyco-Lactic Cleanser this is a AHA Gel Cleanser that will control oil levels without stripping the skin. Next Ultra Hydration Serum, this will restore the moisture level in the skin without making your skin oily, and last Skin Recovery Creme, this if anything will be your savior! You can reference these product names in the search box on the website and the products and information will come up

QUESTION: I’m just wondering…can you put eyeliner on your water line?

Yes…just avoid the tear duct and your good to go! I would recommend holding down the lid for a second or two just to let it completely dry!

QUESTION: What do you think about Obagi Clenziderm?

Here’s the deal with Obagi…it is a fabulous product. It is also however, extremely strong and can be harsh and damaging to the skin. That being said…I believe it is more of a reparative skincare product then a maintenance skincare product. If you are past the point of preventive and have entered the world of reparative, Obagi is a good place to start. If you do decide to go with an Obagi regime, pick a 6 month program (they have different options) finish the program then stop! Being an Esthetician I have seen quite a few people who have been on a Obagi regime for extended periods of time and their skin looks transparent! After you have finished your 6 month regime and have repaired the skin it is up to you to maintain it. I suggest using an “At Home” Pharmaceutical Grade Chemical Peel! Glycolic Acid along with high quality professional skincare products, will not only save you money, it will also save your skin! Try SkinRxClinic’s “At Home” Glycolic Acid Peel. If you are looking for a way to kick your skin into high gear this is another option for you. It is worth looking into go to www.SkinRxClinic.com type “glycolic” in the search box the product and all the information will come up!

QUESTION: Skin Nightmare! How to sort it out for good? My skin started breaking out and now I have spots upon spots which I never used to get. The spot cream I had been using dried my skin out, which seemed weird to me as my skin always felt shiny and oily. I got a seaweed cleanser and toner to use as well as some tea tree for spots. That was 5 months ago. My skin is still getting worse and I have tried so many different things!

Sounds like you have striped the skin of moisture so it was over producing oils to try to rehydrate and in return your skin didn’t feel dry. I would stop using a toner for a week or so give your chance a skin to rehydrate and produce the correct amount of oils. If you have a gentle cleanser…meaning nothing with salicylic or glycolic acids in it. Then you want to follow up with a lightweight breathable moisturizer that is oil and fragrance free. Try SkinRxClinic Skin Recovery Creme. I know you want a quick fix but unfortunately this is going to be a process but clear, even skin is possible I promise! I have been through a similar situation. Once your skin is back to a normal pH level (you will know when its ready) you should get a spot treatment for the discolorations. You should look into Arnica Cleanser you can get this through SkinRxClinic. Go to www.SkinRxClinic.com type “arnica” into the search box and the products and information will come up. If you are dead set on using a toner look into the Hydra Essence Toner…type “hydra” into the search box and that info will pull up. They also carry a Skin Lightener that works really well. If anything you should defiantly look into this…search “lightener”. Good Luck and I hope this helps!
