Is Your Skin Experiencing Change Due To The Georgia Heat?

scott-webb-125443-unsplash.jpg

Hi Loves! I hope everyone is enjoying their summer so far :)

For the past few weeks, I personally have been experiencing change in my skin. From clogged pores to breakouts due to the excessive heat and sweat. I have been attending outdoor events, which have caused my skin to become more prone to breakouts. Most of you all know that one of my biggest issues I deal with is breakouts on my chest, however, this is mainly due to stress and going through the ups and downs of what I like to call the "human condition". But what I have noticed is that my face has become really vulnerable to acne due to our Georgia summer and so I figured that if I am experiencing these issues I am certain that you may be too to some degree. This is why we are now offering Seasonal Skin Health Checks to our current clients. If you are interested in a Seasonal Skin Health Check please fill out the form below. 


XOXO,
Saira

Men's Skin Health - Dermaplaning For Men? But of Course! ◮◍

We often are asked the question whether guys can get a Dermaplane treatment considering their coarser facial hair and beards. The answer is, Yes!

Dermaplaning is a non-invasive skin rejuvenation treatment which offers some of the same exfoliating benefits as microdermabrasion, however, there is quite a difference. Dermaplaning offers less discomfort and also removes vellus hairs or “peach fuzz” from your face, leaving your skin smooth all over.

Why is this treatment necessary? Because the buildup of dead skin and microscopic hairs can make your complexion appear dull, flaky, and can even cause breakouts due to clogged hair follicles and pores. Which is why this form of mechanical exfoliation is essential for maintaining an even, healthy glow. Additionally, Dermaplaning allows product penetration. This ensures that your products can enter the skin without any barriers

What if you have a beard? If you happen to have a beard we are still able to exfoliate the surrounding facial and neck areas that are hair free. We treat the forehead, cheeks, chin, and neck so there are ample areas that can be treated. In addition, this treatment is ideal for men suffering from folliculitis and can be combined with a chemical peel or an enzyme peel and LED Light Therapy.

How can a guy prepare for this treatment? Men would need to shave the day of treatment. In addition, they would not be able to shave until 7 days post-treatment and will be asked to refrain from using BHA or AHA's for 7 days post-treatment as well. Any form of acids or retinol could potentially cause the skin temporary damage and irritation.

So the takeaway is that for all you gents interested in dermaplaning it doesn't matter whether you have a beard, or you are smooth shaven you can still benefit from this specialized treatment.

Men's Skin Health - The Ultimate Dad's Guide To A Minimalist Skincare Regimen ◮◍

Men are the simplest creatures out there - so they say! If it isn't coming from a relationship standpoint then yes they are simple beings that are pretty easy to understand and require less then their female counterparts for the most part. For most men, skincare is the last on their priority list. However, as they start to age they too are starting to think more and more about skin health and age preservation. We have compiled a short list of must-haves for the most minimalist of guys. And in light of Fathers Day 2018 approaching, we know that a minimalistic skincare regimen is a must-have for the modern busy Dad. The products must be no-nonsense, age-defying with minimal effort ◮◍  

1. Cleansers - This is the most important product as this helps to cleanse the skin while being condition specific if directed to the right product. For example, aging skin would benefit from the Ageless Total Facial Cleanser as it contains Glycolic which is an AHA and resurfacer as well as Retinol. Retinol is a key component in any anti-aging regimen however some guys would rather have it bundled into another product instead of in a night cream which it is often found in.

2. Exfoliation - A good exfoliator is also ideal as it helps with skin buildup and minimizing fine lines and wrinkles. It also helps to resurface. This option can be optional if your cleanser happens to have either an AHA or BHA. 

3. SPF - SPF is king. This is imperative for everyone. The best approach would be to purchase a moisturizer with SPF such as Prevention+ Daily Moisturizer SPF which contains Zinc and helps to protect from UVA and UVB. 

So the takeaway is that you don't need so many products to keep your skin healthy. Especially if you are more of a less is more kind of guy 😘 So if your skincare routine and lifestyle habits are not in alignment and If you are overwhelmed with the options out there don't be! You don't need so many products. They just have to work with your lifestyle and also be condition specific. We love multifunctional products + minimal effort 👌 If you are in need of a new approach book a free consultation today 😘 

If you or your Dad are interested in a new skincare regimen contact us at 404-496-4091 or email us at info@theoryaesthetics.com. We also encourage you to book a skin consultation whether over the phone, virtually or in-clinic. We love to talk skin. We also invite you to visit us at www.theoryaesthetics.com.

Key Ingredients That Drive Your Skincare | Part 1. Retinols

We discussed in prior blog posts how beneficial Peptides, Growth Factors as well as Vitamin C are to your skincare routine. Now we will explain in this three part blog series why it is beneficial to include Retinols, Beta Hydroxy Acids (BHA), Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA) as well as various Antioxidants to your skincare arsenal. These are all powerful ingredients that will drive your skincare game to the next level. 

Retinol is one of the most powerful ingredients you can include in your skincare routine. Retinol is Vitamin A and it's effects on the skin has been proven to speed up cell turnover, boost collagen production, reduces acne and acne scarring, decreases hyperpigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles as well as keeping your pores clean and unclogged.  Retinols are best used at night as this is peak time for cell turnover. While using a retinol product you can be more sensitive to the sun, so it is mandatory to always use an SPF. In addition, it is important to note that retinols do cause your skin to be dry if you use too much or you are new to retinols, so be sure to use sparingly and to include a hydrating daily moisturizer as well as an SPF to complete your morning regimen.  

Recommended Products:

If you are a Retinol newbie, AGELESS Total Repair Crème is a perfect introductory Retinol Product to try. Ageless Total Repair Crème supports collagen synthesis while preventing moisture loss from the epidermal layer of the skin. It Improves skin’s texture and tone without irritation, while it hydrates, brightens and reduces redness. An added bonus is that it protects skin from oxidative stress.

For all you Retinol pioneers AGELESS Total Overnight Retinol Masque is a great product to try out as well. Ageless Total Overnight Retinol Masque supports collagen synthesis while preventing moisture loss from the epidermal layer of the skin and continually hydrates skin. This breakthrough treatment masque transforms skin’s appearance while you sleep and includes multi-action technology, which continuously releases hydrating microspheres of marine collagen to lock in moisture and delivers retinol deep into the skin to support intensive collagen remodeling.

Regardless of which retinol crème you decide to go with, we always recommend to all new and experienced Retinol users to always use an SPF and for newcomers to invest in the Vital C Hydrating Repair Crème for morning use. This product is great for the morning for extra hydration and Prevention 50+, which is a great SPF option and does not leave your skin with a greyish tint like most SPF's have a tendency to do. 

If you have questions about Retinol products you can always contact us at 404-496-4091 or email us at info@theoryaesthetics.com. We also encourage you to book a skin consultation whether over the phone, virtually or in-clinic. We love to talk skin. We also invite you to visit us at www.theoryaesthetics.com.

Hey Lovies!

If we could recommend two products that will instantly give you clearer + brighter looking skin and that dewy healthy glow it would have to be iS Clinical's Active Serum and Youth Complex. The duo is simply an amazing combination. 

Active Serum has an invigorating coolness when you apply the liquid serum to your skin right after a freshly cleansed face. Preferably with Cleansing Complex. Its a perfect treat to waken your sleepy skin, especially in the morning. Active Serum is an amazing 3 in 1  and we all know that products that can address many issues at once is ideal for the minimalists lifestyle ▲ Active Serum will target Hyperpigmentation, Aging as well as Acne. The results are instant and noticeable after the first use.

Youth Complex is the product to follow Active Serum. This Complex will reduces fine lines and wrinkles, provides immediate and long-term improvements, firms and tightens, smoothes and softens, provides antioxidant protection, stimulates collagen synthesis, is paraben-free and adds that ever so envious glow that we all skincare junkies love so much 🙌

If you are more so focused on an overall anti-aging system then iS Clinical AGE-DEFYING KIT will be a good solution that will address the look of fine lines and wrinkles, provides nourishing hydration, and supports long-term goals for visibly firmed skin. Not only does it include the two products discussed, but also includes the Clearing Complex, Active Serum, Youth Complex, Eclipse SPF 50+ and Youth Intensive Crème. All of the goodies 😊

If you have questions about these iS Clinical "dewy glow" products you can contact us at 404-496-4091 or email us at info@theoryaesthetics.com. We also encourage you to book a skin consultation whether over the phone, virtually or in-clinic. We love to talk skin. We also invite you to visit us at www.theoryaesthetics.com.
